4 Mob'ers take a keep!

Teaser Paragraph:

When people ask you "what did you last weekend?" what is your reply? For some Mob'ers we nonchalant said.... "Ahhh nothing, we just stormed a keep with 4 people"8019644467_2a7c3d0bcd_c.jpg


As many of you know, Guild Wars 2 has an amazing feature called world verse world, which allows people to participate in full on server versus server battles. Many people are less interested in Player versus Player combat, and have not had a chance to participate, but man are you missing out. World versus World combat is NOT like PvP at all, it is more of a grand scale tactics experience. On a regular basis there are 2-3 full groups in WvW working together and coordinating our efforts. The next time you hear of a group forming up... hop in. There are no level requirements, no gear requirements and certainly no experience requirements. You can level from 1-80 in WvW without any problems, and it is loads of fun doing it.


 
 

Reserve Your Guild Wars Character Names

Arena Net has announced the deadline to reserve your character names for July 31st, 2012. All you have to do is log in to your Guild Wars account and 'reserve all your character names.' Names will only be reserved from active Guild Wars accounts which is why they are asking people to log into their account to save your names.
 
This was discussed in a previous blog post that addressed your Guild Wars character names will be be reserved indefinitely. You will be required to create Guild Wars 2 characters using the same saved names from Guild Wars during the "Headstart Access" period (for those who preordered) or during the 1st day the game launches.
 
Any unclaimed or unsaved names will become available "shortly after launch" for everyone to use. So, you better get in game and lay claim to those character names you've spent time building and making a name for. MoB Rocks!

Star Trek Online: Season 6 Under Siege Live

Teaser Paragraph:

Our latest content update, Season 6: Under Siege, is now available. In this update, new challenges, events, and social experiences are made available to Fleets and max-level players. Undertaking these new challenges, and defeating new enemies, will help you earn brand-new, ultra-rare rewards.

 

Here's some of what you can experience in Season 6:

FLEET ADVANCEMENT SYSTEM
 
For the first time ever, Fleets will begin construction of Fleet Holdings, starting with a Starbase – your home port in the vastness of space. To do so, they must undertake construction projects through the Fleet Advancement system, which has projects for Fleets of all sizes. Unlock new Starbase enhancements, access new Operational Assets, or add brand-new ultra-rare items to your Fleet Store, including new starships, equipment and uniforms. Move up in the Military, Science or Engineering tracks, or work on your Starbase to expand its size and facilities. Your Fleet can choose which projects it wants to undertake, creating a customized progression that focuses on what’s important to you.
To accompany this new system, the Fleet Homepage has been completely redesigned and a new Fleet Holdings Page provides information on Fleet Status, Projects and Contribution Leaderboards.
Not currently in a Fleet? You can use the 'Find a Fleet' feature in-game through the 'Social' menu (default key "O") to search for Fleets based on your interests. There are Fleets for every style of play.
NEW FLEET EVENTS
 
Join with your Fleetmates and other players for all-new events. Defend a Starbase from an attack in a 5-player Fleet Alert, or fight the enemy in a new, 20-player Fleet Action. In other 5-player events, you’ll save freighters from a blockade or search a dark, Starbase cargo hold for saboteurs. In all of these scenarios, you’ll earn Fleet Marks that you can use to help your Fleet advance.
These events are available from the PvE queue at any time, and provide bonus rewards if played during the hourly Fleet events found in the Mission Journal (default key "J").
NEW MAX-LEVEL CONTENT
 
New missions and events designed specifically for max-level players introduce more challenges, end-game content, and rewards for the most experienced Star Trek Online captains. In the "No Win Scenario," your team must defend a single freighter from increasing waves of deadly enemy ships. The rewards increase the longer you can last, but do you have what it takes to survive?
For "Colony Rescue," you’ll travel to a former Federation colony on the edge of disputed space. Federation diplomats dispatched to this forsaken world are in trouble, and the colony itself is under attack. Land a small team and secure the area. But do you want to free the diplomats … or capture them?
These events are available from the PvE queue at any time, and provide bonus rewards if played during the hourly Fleet events found in the Mission Journal (default key "J").
THE THOLIANS
 
An old enemy has reemerged and taken interest in a system in the Neutral Zone.
Interspatial rifts have been discovered on Nukara Prime, a demon-class planet in the Eta Eridani Sector Block, and now the reclusive Tholians are intent on claiming the world and its secrets for themselves. Equip your environmental suit, beam down and stop them! Participate in missions that you can complete solo, or more difficult encounters that require up to 4 other players.
It has also been reported that the Tholian Assembly has been attacking Federation and Klingon Fleet Starbases in attempts to weaken the forces that threaten their advancements. You must be prepared as the Tholians are an enemy to be reckoned with.
This event is available at any time by beaming down to Nukara Prime in the Eta Eridani Sector Block, and provides bonus rewards if played during the hourly Fleet events found in the Mission Journal (default key "J").
FOUNDRY UPDATES
 
The Foundry, Star Trek Online's popular user-content creation tool, will see its first major update since launch, putting even more creative power into Foundry authors' hands. There's always something new to discover with the Foundry - create new worlds and new stories and share them with the community!
