  1. Hola old friends, can someone please PM me a discord invite code, I need to speak to Thallis.
  2. My deepest condolences, it's terrible news.
  3. Well I am old and slow of reflex. If skill is only judged by my ability to jump spin while circle strafing and keeping my reticlle centered whilst i pew pew pew I assure I will be sadly lacking. However I was very good at the "skills" I listed above, I haven't yet played Crowfall beyond running around my EK when I first installed it but I plan too after the summer is over.
  4. What in WoW was there to write about PVP wise. We were a compact guild that dominated PVP such as there was. It amounted to duels outside Orgrimar, ganking Allies trying to get into Blackrock spire and Kamikazeeing the alliance capitols. We weren't a raiding guild, after we capped we ran the high level zones, dueled, raided the alliance cities etc. There was literally zero point to Wow as a PVP game so we left.
  5. See how silly that sounds to claim to have won WoW after only playing the sheety launch version and not being around for the changes, expansions and evolution of the game? Your short time at SB's launch gives you zero credibility to talk expertly about a game that had many expansions, rule changes, advancements, server versions etc.
  6. Probably because you stuck with it after we conquered the game and moved on.
  7. Hi Viking, yeah we all capped in about 2 to 3 weeks. Exarch was on the WoW wide leaderboard for the first to 60 but faded at the end and missed by a couple days. I don't remember for sure it's been too many years but I think illidan?
  8. There are a million games out right now that reward mechanical skill from your oft-mentioned WoW to all the FPS shooters to infinity. Shadowbane we'd all of course grant didn't have that kind of mechanical skill ceiling. SB however rewarded planning, subterfuge, treachery, relentlessness and most of all brains more than anything before or since. Real game world consequences were the other truly defining thing about SB. If you disgruntled off the wrong nation leader, talked smack in the forums, stole from or ganked the wrong guy there was a very real chance you as a lowly peon in your nation could bring on a huge war that resulted in your empire being burned to the ground city by city, night by night. I think my guild burning down your repair forge and bank before the siege so that you cannot repair or get at your banked items easily is skill. I think my guild dropping structures on your advancing formation scattering you for easy pickoffs is skill. I think getting a stealther into your pre siege rally to see what spec your guild is bringing to a fight so mine can get a counter to it is skill. I think making better toons that are vastly stronger as a complementary group and maybe not so much solo is skill. I think planning out a brilliant strategy for a siege is skill. I think the guild that can best get on target and stay on with the chaos of battle to win is skill. I think the guild that can most effectively use their collective abilities and powers to immobilize and debuff their targets is skill. I think the guild that can most effectively remove debuffs and CC on their own players is skill. I think the guild that builds the most intelligent and complementary groups is skill. I think the group that most effectively resource gathers and crafts their gear to maximize their group abilities is skill. I think the group that can most effectively get their dead back to the battlefield, buffed and ready to fight the quickest is skill. As long as Crowfall adequately rewards those things listed above I don't tink any SB'ers will complain.
  9. My guild at the time of WoW launch, Talons of Chaos was filled with top tier SB names most would recognize from the glory days of Vengeance. Eastre, Exarch, Rolp, Sabotage, Lotus, Kraxx, Dru2 and more that my aged brain forgets. We played WoW for 6 weeks to two months and dominated any and all combat and it was a server so populated it had queues to log in that could stretch hours. WoW PVP was boring, easy and pointless. All the builds were the same, there was absolutely no consequences to to anything.
  10. Never heard of VN, non factors imo. I played WOW for the first 6 weeks after launch and the PVP was absolute sheet.
  11. This is in the bugs forum, you are not alone.
  12. Another question about training. Do skills that raise attack power when a weapon is equipped raise attack power on spells? For instance will training raise attack power on one handed weapon strengthen heals and nukes if I am holding one handed weapon?
  13. Wow in windowed mode those icons aren't visible. As soon as I went full screen they popped up.
  14. I'll compensate as best I can. Has ACE ever wiped training back to zero? I wonder if friends who have access but are waiting for the game to get to at least beta before playtesting should at least DL the client and start their passive training going.
  15. That's a good idea. Seems like there's plenty of time before launch to get used to that. Thanks.
  16. That sucks I am kinda old and retired and I don't have the finger dexterity to hit those keys with the same hand I am moving with. Another question, do they wipe the characters and training with each patch so you have to start from scratch or do they endure?
  17. I have a few noob questions I'll tack here instead of making a new thread. 1. Moving wasd with left hand, haven't done it since original darkfall release but I am re-learning slowly. Circle strafing and keeping on a target may never happen lol. Powers are triggered by hitting number keys except the number pad on my keyboard doesn't trigger them with numlock on or off. How are you supposed to trigger your powers then? 2. Is there a way to re-order the powers in your tray or swap them out? 3. On a related note with a druid for instance with two power trays do you have to toggle between the healing and damage trays to cast from each? 4. What FPS should I be looking for at a minimum for smoothness in PVP? I have turned video settings to basic, turned off shadows and am in windowed mode and getting 17-20 fps. I may need a new computer I fear.
  18. So brand new logging in for first time and setting up my passive training. I have watched a few videos and done some reading but I haven't found any guides for passive training. What's more important in your opinion for universal training for getting a good start- combat, crafting or exploration? Friendliest class for a complete noob? Haven't played a wasd game since darkfall release.
  19. Disagree with Soulein a bit. Since the defender already has the advantage and if he gets to set the siege start time I'd say let it go til the tree or stone drops. If it gets too late for the defender and he has to go to bed he should have set an earlier time. Persistence and endurance should be rewarded.
  20. What WoW as the pinnacle of PVP? I played WoW in beta and for the most first year. PVP consisted of wandering around zones ganking peeps xping. I heard they were going to add battlegrounds or some such crap but the PVP in WoW was pathetic so I came back to SB. Wait - are you saying since I didn't stick around in WoW as it evolved and expanded I have no idea what I am talking about? Hmmmmm.
  21. I'd buy any and all of you a beer. I am pretty sure that the guys/gals who stuck through the sociopathic atmosphere of SB through all the betrayal, forumbane, bugs/dupes/exploits and irl attacks and kept logging in everyday for more are my kind of people no matter what nation you were in.
