Respec doesn't work like that. No att can be higher than 30.

Also there are no implants higher than +5.

Click on the repsec button and it will let you play around with it and just press cancel and you come back out and don't use it.

When you look at it it will make more sense

Looks like the belt has been stripped mined this afternoon unfortunately.

Will need to find somewhere else, i will be on at 9pm for any support that is needed.
763  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [EVE] The Trendy Squid Trading Corporation - Mining op on: March 27, 2009, 06:08:37 PM
With enough warning on mining ops i can fly support, flying a Battlecruiser (harbringer) at the moment but can also fly a Maller well as well. I can also use medium scout drones  so can bring some firepower along, just need a bit of notice on times so i can confirm with her in doors that i am free.

I am free this weekend so let me know.

Yeah, but the crystals don't expire, once you have a few of each it's fine. The normal ones aren't expensive either.

Best to focus on things we can make big savings on.
765  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [EVE] Trendy Squids - state your production needs! on: March 18, 2009, 01:59:05 PM
Not sure what i need off the top of my head.

Not using missiles atm on my BS and i use Energy turrets so no ammo need either.

i'm happy to supply stuff as needed though.

Another thing worth noting is the use of Salvagers.

I did the 10 tutorial mission for fighters and from those missions i earnt 3mill isk in salvaging.

The salvaging skill costs 900,000 isk. If anyone needs some isk upfront for this skill im more than happy to give it as it pays back in spades if you do killing rather than mining. The skill doesn't take long to learn either.

I will be on for most of the day today, i've come down with the flu so not going on a family day out. Got peace and quiet and EvE instead.

I also forgot the server shut down is the worst time for EU peeps, 11am for an hour for me.

I have chosen to do all tutorial missions as well. So am happy  to help anyone out.

Also if anyone needs some ISK i have some going, just let me know what you need.

I gotta say this game is a nightmare on so many levels. Haven't played for a year, log in and go holy crap, what do i do, took me 45 mins to try and figure out how to try and leave amaar space and then thought i was doing it all wrong anyways.
777  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Eve Online - GT+OO Corporation (Naming?) on: March 11, 2009, 10:12:58 PM

No problem, in fact it's worth using your link then mine as it's much quicker than the offical links for the latest version.

What new shiny stuff exactly?

785  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: EVE Online - push me off the fence. on: March 09, 2009, 11:53:03 PM
I think i'm Amarr. Been a year since i played so not really sure.

I will use this one, i didn't make too many stupid mistakes and he flys a nice Battleship and i have enough skills to hold my own.

Saying that i may just try a new one anyways and see what happens.

794  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: AoC official forum Dev Postings of note on: January 29, 2009, 06:08:04 PM
I can't agree here :O)

Each type of game that is very successful follows similar formulas in what they need to work. This doesn't guarantee success but it means you are building from a solid foundation. This doesn't mean you can't be innovative but it sure means you need to capture the main points from the off.

Things like a solid game engine, in a sports Sim it's real names and players that play and look like the real thing. In an MMO's it's setting and the rewards you offer, be it loot, zones, skills. The format or way you offer them can differ in so many ways but if the (insert answer here) you control doesn't have that magic ingredient it just doesn't work.

For MMO'S there are some that want a transition into a new style of game and not the rinse and repeat of the present crop of MMO. AoC could have been that, however  IMO (this is my feelings :O)) you still need to take some of the best and most intrinsic parts of MMO gameplay and do them well in your game unless you really have another great alternative. The reality of just ignoring it or saying in our view it isn't about this won't wash. The player base need to follow your view of what it is they are playing and seemingly wearing the same gear, looking the same and not having that special look or item is not the way a large number of the player base see things. Personally i don't find that a surprise I'm just surprised AoC made that mistake.

Many people want lots of things from lots of games but there is no doubt there are a few common denominators in there the majority want and you need to ensure you are giving them this on top of the new experience.

Of course that doesn't mean people shouldn't think out of the box or tr things radically different, however i don't feel saying we didn't envision a different look or  better weapon stats as part of our game so we didn't bother as actually innovative or a step in the right direction.

Of course you may disagree  icon_lol

I really struggle to understand why this sort of stuff wasn't in at the start. Diversity is what you need and a year down the line it is probably too late if you actually what to be anything except a minor player.
They are only a minor player.  It's nice to see, at least, they are still willing to allocate resources to keeping the small pop they have happy and improving the game however slowly that might be happening. 

[edited for pre-coffee misplaced bitchiness]

I can't agree, for many the drive of levelling and finding new gear and looks is all part of the experience and remove one of them and the game just doesn't work for them. From the off some of gear and equipment is just pathetic in it's description and added bonuses, also the looks were so similar it was really a case of wth. Hence so many people calling for better stuff and looks.

With anything new you really can't afford to get the basics wrong and AoC did and there really is no excuse for it.
797  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Age of Conan Q&A thread on: January 25, 2009, 07:29:47 PM
The first area is pretty good but it just isn't representative of the game as a whole. Maybe they should have made a single player game in the same vein instead.

It's a bit like getting the new girlfriend home and stripping her off and finding out she is a ladyboy with a push up bra. Sure the excitement built on the ride home but hell, no way am i gonna go there again when i see what it is even if he is now a she next time we meet slywink

When you click the arrow to open up the skills. The grey ones can only be selected once you have 5 points in the ones on the left of the grey ones. This can be 5 points in 1 or 1 in each of the 5's.

To level up the skills you can there is a small + sign on the ones that are in your tree to the left(not the box when you click the arrow)

You get to choose 10 skills overall but they don't come every level.

So you have skills that level up every level as well as a choice of skills to which you can choose a max of 10 over the course of the first 30 odd levels.

Sorry the above is not that clear.

800  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Football Manager Live on: January 25, 2009, 10:40:45 AM
I picked this up yesterday.

First it isn't as in depth as Football Manager 2009 but you still need a good understanding of Soccer to play it.

The game costs 18 from play.com and that includes a 4 month subscription.

First you have to name your Team same as you would your toon in an MMO.

You then join a game world (server) this supports up to 1000 players. Each gameworld runs on a 4 week cycle. 1 week of preseason and then 3 weeks of playing competition games. This works really well as it gives you the first week to get set up, play some friendlies and learn the game.

At the start you get 500,000 to buy a squad and a wage budget of 100,000. All the players in the game are based on real life players so it's like setting up your own soccer team. You can use Auto Select and it will pick 18 players automatically or you can get it to pick 18 players based on your settings. Finally you can manually do it by searching the database and picking them all yourself. I did a bit of both. Picked 4 key players and then auto filled the rest.

There are also skills in the game you learn and this is done exactly like EvE. They are broken down into sections like Coaching, Tactics, Physio, Scouting, Management and Infrastructure. They all have additional skills within them. They take from 40mins to 30 days to learn and go from level 1 to 5. You get a choice at the start on what you want to focus on and gets skills based on that.

After choosing your squad and get in game there are a few things to do. Fist you pick an FA (Football Association) to join. These organise your league and cup games and also regulate how often you want to play. There are different types of FA's. I am in an evening one which is for people who are mostly on between 18.00 - 24.00. You have afternoon ones, morning ones and so. You also have casual ones for people that don't play as much and ones for heavy players.

Then it's picking your team and formation. This is also where it is different from FM2009.  For example you can pick any formation but if you want to add  forward runs or defense cover you need to learn it as a skill so you can train your team in it. At first it seems a bit odd being limited in what you can set up but it does seem to work well.

Next it's play a game or two. You can set your profile to you want to play a game and then use an auto finder to find other teams ready to play or you can ask anyone for a game. You join chat rooms when logging in, there are 4 or 5 of them including a transfer market and help rooms for anything you aren't sure of as well as asking for friendlies.

Now the league format works a bit different, the fixture are generated and you have a date by which time you need to have played this game against the other person. So it's not as if you have to be on line at a specific time. Depending on your FA your also have an AI option where games cane be resolved by the AI using what you have picked, there is a limit to this and if you use it too much you will end up being removed from the league. I don't really know how well this works as my league only starts on Thursday and i am in the friendly phase still.

Finances are daily in that you get income every 24 hours and pay players daily. You have a daily limit on max wages which is 250k a day, for every spent over this you get a 100% tax on it.

So far i am really enjoying it, behaviour seems good, but it will interesting to see how people cope with losing games and being in a live chat situation as well.

I also wonder if the game will end up with those that play full time can easily pull away from those that don't and whether having multiple FA'S will solve this.

I do recommend it if you like FM2008/09
