Whew, It’s been another whirlwhind weekend. Essays to write and tests to study for as the semester comes to a close. Oh, and then there’s the whole gaming thing which I’m sure you’re all more interested in hearing about. There’s been quite a bit of news swirling around the WAR community the past couple of days and some interesting development closer to home. I really don’t have a format for this so I’m just going to lump it all together in a conglomoblog.
Mythic CSR’s come to the rescue!
Yes, they have finally helped me fix the guild transfer problem which resulted in, well, my guild not transferring at all. Tonight while I was defending our keep in Kadrin valley I was contacted by a very friendly GM who was quick to inform me that he was here to see that my problem was resolved. He was extremely apologetic that my petition went so long unanswered. I won’t go into details here since I’m not sure if I’m at liberty to do so, but this CSR went to great lengths – above and beyond -to help me and I want to again express my gratitude for the help. I would also like to thank Andy from Community for undoubtedly seeing to it that the CSRs come to my rescue.
So, once again, Happy Fun Guyz members please contact MORKEEN or any other online member of the guild for an invite. Let’s get the guild back up and running in full swing and knock out some dungeons and RvR together. I’m really energized now that our guild is restored and I would love to take advantage of our magnificent server. Let’s not let a few hiccups ruin our fun.
I’m struggling to pick a class to stick with after 1.0.6. I’m a Shaman at heart but part of me is not liking that I feel like, as a supposed hybrid, I’m stuck doing nothing but spec’ing full healing and just healbotting the entire time. I guess my feelings are rooted back in the oldschool DAOC Shaman… Cave spec was worthless back then just like Gork is today. Shaman have an entire tree to deal damage but if we stop healing for even a moment then people die.
I’ve been thinking about making a Squig Herder. I played Graev’s for a while and I really enjoyed it. Now that they give Bright Wizards a run for their money the itch to level one is just begging to be scratched. I’m going to go back and forth on this for a while and make a SH anyway… whether the Shaman stays my main or not will be the question.
Garthilk from WHA thinks so. Honestly, Mark Jacobs has been adamant to a fault that we’ll never see official forums but I really think he’ll go back on this one. Sorry Mark, I just have this feeling that where the game is at now that it would actually benefit from a place where the community can come together. Will you be singing backup for that Bill Shatner and Roseanne album?
Dark Crag performance blows but Mythic admits it
I’ve blogged about this recently and the problem still has not gone away. In case you’re not in the know, the problem is the servers crashing (or just the regions with 400+ people in them) which is causing the fortress taking to be impossible. RvR is just overall a laggy mess. Good thing (at least I think?) here is that Mythic acknowledges that the problem is there and that it’s unacceptable. When I say Mythic, I mean Mark Jacobs, but anyway. Mark Quote:
“I think that these problems should not be happening, can’t continue and that the team is better than this. I’ve also said that this must be fixed as quickly as possible and that it’s the #1 priority of the engineering team. We need to do whatever we can as quickly as we can to alleviate this problem whether it involves immediate programming and/or design changes and that is already happening and will continue until the problems are resolved.”
I’ll cross my fingers and hope. If the lag is fixed, like I’ve been saying, WAR will be in an amazing place. The action is INTENSE at all times of the day!
I think that’s the conglomoblog for the night! Sorry about things being slow here lately. After finals I should be able to devote more time to blogging and playing.
