I agree with Turtle - the game needs some sort of UI that works...the game makes little sense now as it is...at least, for non-hardcore ascii fans.

there might be the greatest game ever in there somewhere, but I just cant bear to play it the way it looks and works right now.

well, its a bit strange...they are making an easy game even more easy? I mean, they already did the level 20 and upwards a lot easier to do, and now this?

of course, its probably because they want people at endgame content I guess

Hi people,

just a little heads up, that the Isle of Dawn, kinda like the trial island in EQII, is now on the test server - and damn it looks fine...

THe new character models will be live on the test servers within a few weeks as well...looking very good for vanguard now as I see it.

The isle of dawn will be a 2 - 2.5 gb trial download sometime in august for players wanting to try it out :-)

you call a tree city your home? *snicker*

hehe, just kidding - its really cool how much you like the game, and you ARE one of the few people I've met in-game a few times :-)

About house Andronnai- you cant go wrong with these guys - so cool, and all ages, the guildmistress is a grandmother, and some of the people have their kids, and spouses playing with them - really cool, familystyle (a trite overused word about guilds, but this one is REALLY spot-on) guild, that enjoys helping newcomers and oldtimers alike - I've had a lot of fun with them.

As for main, I think its my bard, , but have 12 alts now, all between lvl 8 and 14 :-D

okay, this may be because I'm on a different timezone than many of you, but, seeing how many people say they play this game, I have seen maybe 3 of you in the GT Channel? really strange..

anyways, because of this, Reemul and I joined a guild, House Andronnai, a very very nice, and very mature, fun guild - I'm sure there's room for others who are interested.

I Just dont believe in the possiblity of a GT/OO guild anymore - sorry...

but, the game still rocks all kinds of ways ;-)

My bard is now lvl 16, and outruns most people who are horsebackriding, while on foot :-D

So, I have this very, very strange things, regarding the name of a certain vegetable... The vegetable in question, is called Broccolli in danish, I've no idea what its' called in english though.  The thing is, I cant remember the name of it..ever! My GF is dumbfounded that I'm not making this up, but seriously, I get told what the name is, and two days later, I simply cant remember it..its just gone! And I mean really, really gone. I can describe the vegetable, I know exactly that is it, but, the word for it is simply not able to stick in my head. It really is beginning to bug me...

Anyone else have this kind of thing with a word, or name?
7856  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is there any give in you? on: July 07, 2008, 06:34:14 PM
So, is there??

I've noticed something on these on other boards, that whenever people get into an argument, there's really no give in either person who debates something...Its just "I think this, you are wrong" and the other person goes "no, you'r wrong".... I honestly dont think I've seen a single person here saying "hmm, you'r right, thats the way it is - this debate has enlightened me"....

Are you all that superintelligent-never-wrong-people?

It's really interesting, because why do you post in places like these then, if you dont want to be challenged, to learn new things, to understand, to grasp things, to perhaps *gasp* learn things?

If you want examples, take a look at the few latest movies that people discuss...

Anyways, I'm grumpy these days, too much sex I guess, makes me not getting enough sleep, but that aside, I'm really curious, whether there's any give in people here...

My apologies if my post was offensive to anyone, was in a bad mood due to some rather unpleasant headaches when I wrote what I wrote...

I concede that US has done some remarkable things, or at least been in the forefront from many things, and yes, the democrazy I referred to was from ancient times...

Anyways - grats on the document, and the belief in the greatness of your country - I just think there's more to it than "we're great, you'r not" which was unfortunately how I read the original post. And that was what got me a bit...offensive.

We are taught (or were, when I was a tadger) that human history is a progression in fits and starts toward ever-greater freedom and democracy, liberalism and populism. Our national mythos holds that America is the inevitable pinnacle of this progression...and implies that our duty is to spread it through the world. This assumption is seldom stated openly, but it underlies elementary history education -- the same assumption that puts humans at the apex of physical evolution.

It's possible that these underlying assumptions have changed in the decades since I was schooled.

The US was founded with soaring rhetoric and noble principles. It has seldom lived up to them, but in most Americans' minds our country is a force for good -- truth, justice, and the American way. Our current administration's most lasting damage is not to our image with the rest of the world, but rather to our own faith in the American mythos.

thats what I was afraid of. Sounds more or less like indoctrination which is dangerous, but thankfully I also believe that people are taught to think for themselves in the US, thus making them able to see beyond the roote learnings of youth.

With all due respect -- everyone has the right to believe that their stuff is the best.     I believe the car I'm getting is the best.    I believe my dog is the greatest.    I certainly tell people I'm married to the best woman in the world, and that my children are the best kids anyone could get.

It's no different with country, and hell fing yes I'm arrogant when it comes to America.    You shouldn't take offense to that at all.    You should go out there and say your country is the best, and I'll give you the big thumbs up.....    thumbsup

sure you have that right, as I have the right to call arrogance extreme, when I see it. And I dont believe my country is the "best", I believe in people, not countries - unless you'r a hivemind, there's no such thing as a unified and equal country whose people are all the same and supergreat people.

Yeah, CSL likes to piss all over everyone.  It's how he makes himself feel awesome.

Oh and stop being so sensitive Razgon. I doubt that if whatever country it is that you're from (Norway? Finland? Sweden? I can't remember) had established the foundations of modern democracy you'd be pretty proud too.  Not to mention it's the weekend celebrating said document. 

When the annual windmill and wooden shoes holiday comes around feel free to post a thread!  I promise Drazzil won't post that there are alternative means for mashing corn or wheat and that Nike is also a valid model of shoe maker.

I'm from Denmark, and we dont wear wooden shoes. And no, you people didnt establish the foundations of modern democracy - sorry to bust your bubble there.

And I'm not really being sensitive, I call things as I see them - isnt that what this forum is all about? Congrats on the document though, its a nice document, would be equally nice of people lived up to it, right?

I can actually make a grand document as well, doesnt make me a better person though..

actions, not words, are what counts in my world.

edit: and hey, the mere fact that you think my country's only contribution to the world, especially compared to the greatness of the US are "windmills and woodens shoes" kinda proves my point.

I guess that a mostly US based forum is the wrong place to question these things though...to bad, really...

hehe, glad you enjoy it..and yes, grouping can be tremendous fun - I did so as well at one of the small, well, dungeons? 4 of us blasted through, killing normal and named mobs, and the drops were so nice, and the group worked so well together..

About the disciple - healers in this game are so darn well done, that you dont, like in other games, see a shortage of healers - Clerics is one of the most played classes actually. The developers have made the healing class so damn fun and interesting, that you'll never regret making one!

a question about RP on the server...why did you choose it?

I just remembered!! In WoW, you could raid the Trolls' gods, cant for the life of me remember his name, at lvl 60 - when we fought one specific boss, he would suddenly yell DING! and the troll god would yell back "GRATS"  icon_biggrin I doubled over in laughter first time I saw that!

funny thing is, on the RP server I played, he was reported for speaking Out of Character, and it had to be removed :-D now THAT is hilarious!
7864  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Any Interest in the WoW Adventures? on: July 04, 2008, 08:12:58 AM
Try a mor relaxed guild, for instance an RP guild?

I used to run an RP guild on a RP-PvP server, teamed up with a few others, and had great fun raiding Molten Core pre-BC, and the dragon lair thingie, and the other one, with the trollgod? who yelled Ding? - people were of course expected to do the right things to make the raid work, there's specific ways to deal with the mobs in there, but its a LOT more relaxed than hardcore raiding guilds -we did it for the fun of it

well, I've read most of what Asimov's written, and didnt recognize anything in it..except for the three laws of course and the title ;-)

I do seem to remember it saying somewhere that was "loosely based on I, Robot"...which was actually a bunch of stories collected in a book

I think the Outer Limits did a version of I, Robot that was supposed to be pretty faithful.  I don't think any of Asimov's Robot stories had big explosions and gun fights.

Asimov's stories are hard science fiction mostly, and not even with strong characters. It's hard to characterize what drives them, but mostly its events and science that has the central stage in them. Thus, the typical hollywood people will have a hard time making a movie about them, because as you say, there's not really any exposions or gunfights typically in these movie.

I'm guessing the female combat animation bug is not with the Ranger class as I haven't noticed anything that seems slow combat wise.  Maybe one day they'll decide what to do with Salvo-  either make it work like it's description says (3 arrows shoot at once) or change the description to say it shoots 3 arrows in rapid succession with extra damage, which is what it does right now.

If I understand it correctly, the time difference between the animations is about 0.1s - 0.2s, so it's nothing you would notice unless you are parsing your damage into a file and analyze it later on.

which, in my opinion, still is way to much - I read somewhere it was around 20 percent reduction compared to male animations in DPS

and therein lies the hub of my beef with AoC - its a beautifull game, full of great ideas, but, the implementation of everything just seems...amateurish, unfortunately.

Dont get me wrong, I couldn't do it better, but with the current games out there, I expect professionalism, like people do from me in my job, when I charge them 140 dollars an hour for what I do.

I suspect its a matter of project management that made the overall game suffer.

7869  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Vanguard - free month for inactive accounts on: July 03, 2008, 07:46:06 AM
hmm...well, thats - a bit difficult to answer, since, well, all classes play differnetly, which is one of the really big major selling points for me.

As for races, I really really enjoy the dark elves, the quests are pretty darn-right evil, and the racial trait is awesome..basically, you summon a pet dragon that acts as a normal pet for about 1 minute. The dragon will grow, as you gain levels, ending up being much larger than yourself!  eek

Goblins are supposudly great fun as well, although havent taken one beyond lvl 6 myself. Raki are really really cool, small furry catlike people, that has a permanent 10 percent speed increase, and just looks damn cool!

As for classes - Necros are supposedly the best soloing character, but I havent had any trouble at all with any of the other classes (Btw, the three GT'ers that were only last night, were all Necros' slywink And necros also gain incredbily spells - Energy drain from corpses, harvesting corpses to get stuff to your pet, and around lvl 14 or so, you have to choose your form...you can be a freaking LICH for gods sake!!  icon_eek

Disciple is a martial arts healer, with some of the coolest animations I've seen in a MMO, and he's pretty nigh unkillable, being able to both heal and attack with both Energy(Mana-stuff) and Jin, which you gain by kicking and hitting stuff :-)

Bloodmage, is one of the most controversial classes - either people love them, or hate them - basically, they are healers, who deal in blood and death, and it takes a while to master/understand them...they are both Nukers and healers -havent tried them., but should be great fun :-)

hope that helped a bit!

oh wait, Dreadknights..eh..wow! Paladins who dont heal, but suck the living bejeesus out of their enemies, tanking with two-handers as well!!

While the movie itself was very well done, and the story was okay, I cringed the whole way through, and kept thinking "is this what they did with Asimov's great story"?

I was a bit saddened, that they had included the three laws of robotics (From Isaac Asimovs books) only to have the main (robotic) character be free of them...

While I'd probably enjoy a follow-up as the popcorn flick it was, I'd much rather see a true Asimovian movie :-)

So, whats your most fun/crazy/interesting MMO experience ?

The reason I was thinking about this, was Reemul talking about Vanguard last night, and what he saw - some monster walking through town near him, huuuuge, filling up his whole monitor - definitely a WOW (not to be confused with WoW) moment!

One of the most interesting things I had happen to me in an MMO, was in the open beta for Age of Conan, when first I'd been trying to go up some stairs in Aquilonia, but kept sinking into the ground. So, I looked around a bit,and tried talking with the various NPCs around the area...well, one of them appearently wasn't taking it anymore, for he did his superman thing, and just flew off up into the air at a crazy speed! Now THAT was a LOL moment...

In Vanguard, first time I took the "fog" off, allowing me to see great distances, climbing off a mountainroad, and seeing the grand city of Khal for the first time, with its huge statues, incredible harbour area and then realizing that WOW - I can actually go there, and it will look like that..its just not scenery.... a great moment!

so - whats your most wow MMO moments?
