  1. Yesterday
  2. Yeah, sounds fun. What time do you guys usually do Flashpoints? You're Mountain time right?
  3. Ah, you're probably right. I'm probably seeing you online playing Diablo III. When I'm on SWTOR I am either progressing one of my characters through their story, solo (I have 14 characters...some further along than others) or I am grouping with up with one of my good friends and her husband to play a flashpoint. We do that pretty regularly. If you're ever interested in doing a flashpoint or two with us, just let me know!
  4. Last week
  5. I pop on Diablo III once in a blue moon, so you're probably just seeing me online as my Blizzard user. I am thinking about playing Hearthstone with my 10 year old, if she likes it, though. SWtoR is fun, though I haven't played in a while. What do you do there when you play?
  6. So awesome! And this is the refrigerator to store your soda in while you are playing... http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/1cb0/
  7. Hi Gicker, good to hear from you! I see you on Hearthstone once in a while, don't I? I spend most of my gaming time playing Hearthstone, Eternal, or Elder Scrolls: Legends, with some additional time in SWTOR which is the only MMORPG I really play anymore. I'm really enjoying the online card games, though. Eternal is probably my favorite because I find it more interactive than Hearthstone but I like all three.

  9. Hey. I think the only real active community games are GW2 and WoW. I'd be open to playing something, though I don't have an Xbox One. I do have a PS4 though. I was playing FFXIV, might get back into that. Was playing Black Desert Online, but it got a bit repetitive. Try as I might I can't get into GW2, which is too bad. I enjoyed it a lot when it launched and the community was really active there. I get bored of the combat there for some reason. I've been playing some single player games and working on my MUD (d20mud.com) as well.
  10. Bumping the ol' "What's being played" these days thread. I'd love to help the community get reconnected here! Like I saw mentioned above a couple times people seem to be spread across various consoles and games. My small LDS RL crew is rocking Ark Survival Evolved on XBOX One lately and we are going to start a dedicated private server (PC based server) on the official launch August 29th. We also play Battlefront (star wars), Battlefield One, and Destiny (soon to be destiny 2). Join us for good times if you have time. Message me here, or add me and message me on xbox live. My gamertag is "ninj0shua"
  11. That's awesome

  13. https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/10597534-levar-burton-and-more-from-our-stlv-panel! LeVar is the first of the 'main' ST:TNG cast (Sorry Denise Crosby - you were only 1 season and sporadic guest star) to come onto STO!

  15. I started playing this recently. It's on sale on Steam for $12 CAD (probably less USD). It's like GW2, buy it and it's free to play. Cash shop, yes. Some have called it Pay to Win, but others responded it's more like pay to speed things up, and pay for convenience. I'm having a lot of fun with it. I've barely scratched the surface from what seems possible. The combat is a lot of fun. If you didn't like old school fighting games like street fighter or mortal combat, you might not like it, as there's a lot of keyboard and mouse combos that let you do special attacks. I *think* they can be mapped to a toolbar, but I haven't done that yet. Faster and more fun doing it 'action-style'. It has a lot of convenience features, and even some afk-enabled stuff, such as afk-fishing, or auto-running between two points to build up your character's stamina. Once you hit level 50, you're PvP enabled in any combat zone (generally outside of cities and outposts), so if you despise PvP and would get upset by getting whacked out doing PvE, might not be the game for you. Gaining level 50 from 49 requires a special quest be done, so there's something there to keep you from going over 49 if you don't want to do PvP at all. I've read though that the fun high end PvE stuff requires level 50+ Anyway, was wondering if anyone was playing this or interested in giving it a try. I'm having fun with it, bouncing between this and FFXIV. Cheers all, Gicker
  16. I have tried to stalk my friends list but I don't see people on very frequently. If anyone wants to add me I would greatly appreciate it--I am not clear how guild invites work except I receive many unsolicited. Some of you may remember me from Lich King and Mists WoW Horde raiding as Teufelsdrock or Miaferal, or launch of GW2 or SWTOR (it was supposed to be the chosen one). I have decided to get back into some semi-casual gaming along with my teenage son, and I always enjoyed gaming with this group. I see that there has been raiding fairly recently and am up for that or anything else, really. mensrea.7605 and primary character is Bear Wrangling. Just grinding out the ascended mats at this point. Son is still playing on this account as Jameraider. Thanks!
  17. Ok, So I know that a lot of peeps around here have an XBOX ONE in addition to their PC games. A group of my adult friends (age 20-35) and I are going to be playing Destiny 2 pretty consistently when it comes out, having played Destiny 1 pretty religiously. We would love to increase the size of the crew if anyone is interested! Pass me your gamertag here and I'd be happy to include you in our shenanigans. We will also be playing Star Wars Battlefront 2 and several other team based shooters on the side... not to mention ARK: Survival Evolved (also XBOX ONE). My gamertag on XBox One is "Ninj0shua". Just make sure to send me a message letting me know you are from the battalion so I know you are not some random weirdo... ;P
  18. Unfortunately, crossplay isn't planned. Which means unless things change later in development, you'll only be able to play with people on the same console. I'll probably be getting both versions if it runs on my PC, though.
  19. Been playing MoHon since the PSP days. I'll be playing as well, however I will wait for the PC version since I do not have a PS4 or XboneOne and don't plan on getting a 4 year + old system just to play it. Good thing there is cross platform play.
  20. Cool Gicker. I'll check out the fantasy grounds thing. I've been using Maptool which is free, but haven't tried using it remotely yet. I could work around your schedule and could probably convince my son to join in as well.
  21. I'd be interested in this, if the play schedule is something I can work with. I'm guessing you guys are in Utah, which means I'm 3 hours ahead of you guys. It'd like have to be on a Saturday afternoon / early evening my time to be able to play. If we started at like 7 or 8 pm your time, It'd be 10-11pm my time. Anyway, not expecting you guys to work around my time zone... but if it does work for you guys, I'm in. I have a standard license for Fantasy Grounds. Check it out here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/home/home.php In order for us to play using Fantasy Grounds, you guys would have to buy or sub at standard level, or one of us would have to buy (expensive!) or sub at ultimate. I also purchased the 5e players handbook and hoard of the dragon queen module for Fantasy Grounds. I could be convinced to DM that module Cheers, Gicker / Steve
  22. So I changed servers to the Goblin server. It was a free world transfer as it's a low population world. Same datacenter as Balmung, so cross server parties should be possible when it is implemented. The queues on Balming were getting rediculous. It was normal to spend 2-3 hours in a qeueue. When I spent 5 hours ina queue to play for 45 minutes, I was done.
  23. Hi Shrimp, glad you posted about this. I was thinking about posting something as well. Been playng a DD 5E campaign with my son and his friends. wanted to see if there was more interested in table topping. I sent you a pm.
  24. The next game in the Monster Hunter series is coming to PS4, Xbox 1, and (later) PC early next year! I mentioned before that I love the Monster Hunter franchise, but it's been exclusive to the 3ds for a long time, which lacked voice chat for coop and greatly limited the audience in the west (plus it meant that the games couldn't evolve too much due to technical limitations). The advancements in the new one look amazing, and according to the devs and people who saw a private demo, it keeps everything people love about the old games. I already know I'll be playing it a lot when it releases, and would love if others would join for some coop! For those who don't know, the series is about hunting down dangerous monsters and using materials from them and the environment to make stronger gear and items to hunt stronger monsters. Which sounds simple, but it's a lot of fun in practice! There's 14 different weapon types that all play very differently, plus you'll want to bring along useful items that often vary depending on the hunt. If you're using a bowgun or elemental weapon, you'll also want to bring bullets or a weapon specific to each monster. In other words, there's a big focus on preparation, and it works very well. World adds much larger environments and a focus on using the world around you to your advantage- things like causing a rockslide on top of the monster, tricking it into smashing a dam and getting pushed off a cliff by the water, or using the food chain (by using a monster's natural prey to lure it to you, or pitting it against a predator). I'll be playing on PS4 initially, and there's a good chance I'll pick it up on PC as well when that version releases. Unfortunately, there's no crossplay planned. If you want to play with people you don't know, the PS4 will likely have the largest userbase.
  25. There's no cross-server friends at the moment, but they're working on it. Sorry, I thought it was already in when I transferred. I'm Kaien Obinata on Cactuar now.
  26. Eldryth, how would I add you to friends' list? Is it possible to add cross-server friends? What's your character name of the other server and which server?
  27. I resubbed about a week ago myself. Also doing PotD groups a lot, as well as completing the Heavensward content.
  28. All raid content can be done in exotics. Numerous bosses have been cleared by guilds in full masterwork (though these are top end players, so I'm not in any way suggesting that as our way to go). However exotics, with a few sprinkled in ascended and people constantly moving towards more ascended will be fine. The order in which one probably should aim for gear is trinkets (easily obtained, albeit with a time investment, from the new living story maps.) Weapons are the biggest damage/throughput boost and so can be honed in on in terms of crafting. Armor, however, is a minor upgrade in terms of overall throughput. They're also cripplingly expensive to get your hands on. Grind your living story currencies and unbound magic, get your trinkets together. Begin crafting weapons, do Tequatl for shots at drops and be doing fractals. Then we just need to get in there and start raiding. With regards to raiding: one thing I'm noticing and it's concerning to me, is that we seems to just be drop of the hat running. Is this the intention going forward? In my experience with a decade of raid leading behind me... that doesn't usually work out. Pugging additional runs because we have a fair amount of people on is one thing, but in terms of a progression oriented team with a desire to down bosses, I'm strongly of the opinion that we need a set night or two with set times. I know this doesn't necessarily work for everyone, but I think a core prog team needs to exist that has these things. This prog team can then help others with content on off nights. Just my thought. (I know that at least some of the members of my former WoW LDS guild who hope to join up and raid with us feel the same as well.) My other suggestion, since we seem to at least partially focused on using discord as our main forum medium for raiding, could we possibly get a handful of other Text channels created on the MoB discord so that these sorts of posts can end up there and not be necessarily lost beneath other chatter?
