    @Jah come on man, i wasnt even there for that and I know most of those are alts that are just sitting there because they were crafting or something. Not actually at the fight or active. all the SS does is show  the ineffectiveness of having the chat separated as one only has to buy an extra account and put their other character in that realm.

    I like how @gracen came in with a positive message and didn't put down anybody. Then @Gradishar came in here and trashed him and changed his post to say something negative. Pretty disgraceful.

    yes, this I am sure we can all agree on. We want to play and "test" and figure out the changes and have fun. Running into a larger alliance with our few people that are obviously under-geared comparatively, then we will make sure we play our way:) I personally have nothing but respect and love for all of our past "friends" in many games not just this one. I thought W and uXa was tighter than this but wow this is enlightening. As for HoA, i enjoyed hanging with them and appreciated them.

    ooo you quoted me and changed the meaning, all hail @Gradishar! I gave an answer and opinion on my and my guilds way to play. Sounds like you are upset because we are not playing the way you want. I was not even here the first 3 days of the campaign lol. Let W and HoA and all the other guilds play the way they want. You want to form an alliance and dominate, we want to play small warfare. you go do you and we will do us.

    In the current NA campaign, if you're Order or Chaos (or maybe even Balance to some degree), there is still a lot to be gained that truly matters. Shiny badge at the end of the Trial? Unimportant. The skill score at the top of the screen? Unimportant. I understand this can be demoralizing, and it is, I will grant you. Trying to level a vessel or harvesting in a zone that's supposed to be yours, and having a roaming band of enemy foes come in and crush you kills the mood--it's happened to me several times today, so I do understand again the frustration. Let me try to convince you why you should still saddle up anyways.
     
    The adage that steel sharpens steel, is that you need an equally (or greater) skilled opponent to sharpen your own skills. Say what one will about the guilds on Balance, but I think it's fair to say they have a solid grasp on how to play, and what compositions work, and where they work. I know Chaos has these guilds too. So let me tell you about TRA's night tonight.
     
    1.) We tried a bit of a meme strategy (which we will refine and return to the battlefield), which rather completely failed. 
     
    2.) We took a more standard approach, by snagging a fort and waiting, inviting some fine Balance guests to come visit. They did, and we died.
     
    3.) Running around the maps, we stumbled up some Balance bois again, and again, died. 
     
    So why tell you about a night of combat losses? As it's often said, you learn more in a loss, than a win--and tonight we did. We learned what in our composition worked, and what doesn't work--perhaps more importantly, we gained a greater understanding of where it did, and where it doesn't work. We learned strength and weakness of what we brought to the field. We gained insight into us as players, and how we each need to improve in various aspects. Tonight's losses are going to make us better players, and a better guild. 
     
    So if you're a guild, no matter your size, and you look at the score, I invite you to ignore it. The shiny token at the end of the rainbow? Ignore it. Use your gold, buy some non-basic white materials at the temple merchants if your guild is hurting on resources, and gear up. Get firsthand knowledge of what classes work well together. Let other people in your guild shot call. Try new compositions.
     
    Most importantly, I suppose, is have FUN. I know that three letter word is a four letter word around these parts, but it really is important. If your guild is feeling the doom-and-gloom, go have a meme night. Do something a little silly. Not finding someone to fight is not going to make you any better. Gear up, get on your comms, and go bloody the soil. Even if you get rolled like we did, I will guarantee you--you will learn something, you'll get in good fights, and you might even have fun. 
     
    So take heart! If you're on Order, come fight with us! If you're not on Order, I'll sure you'll be fighting us soon enough.

    The fact of the matter is, this game and it's developers have been, and obviously still are, fighting an up hill battle right now.   If you have backed this game financially, then I'm certain you want it to succeed, unless you've changed your mind entirely.  I believe, this community will dictate this games future moving forward, by their actions and their dedication.  We all are aware that this is still just a "pre-alpha".  We all know that we have had to be very patient, as this thing progresses, and many of us believe there is a time and place for everything. 
    Obviously, many backers, like myself, feel that it is a bit early for segments of the (still active) community to start making drastic or perhaps game-breaking decisions right before an initial "trial campaign", that may simply cause this project to lose more traction.  Sure, guild politics and guild strategies definitely need to play out at some point!!!  But, why now, and to this degree?  We are not supposed to be testing; "How can the community break this game on the first trial campaign"?  We are supposed to be testing the latest in-game mechanics, giving the devs an abundance of good data to analyze, and bringing in new blood, if at all possible.  
    In my opinion, for what it is worth, it is pretty early for any of us to honestly defend a deliberate faction unbalancing act, regardless of "numbers", just for the sake of a more certain victory in a trial / test campaign.  I believe most players that are upset right now, are not trying to deny the necessity of guild decisions and guild politics in this "Self Proclaimed Throne War"?  Most are simply saying; let us first just make a valid attempt at promoting some good test campaigns (with an abundance of valuable test data).  We, as individuals/guilds/alliances, can attempt to flat out "Dominate" the campaigns some time later (perhaps before or after Beta)!  From what I've witnessed, new player retention on this game was bad enough, as is, and now it's just getting worse (although I noticed some good ideas regarding new player retention above).  All things being said, THREE truly competitive Factions is likely our best testing scenario for right now. 
    We, as a dedicated community, can give the devs the "help" that they are asking for!  We can help push this thing over the hill, without cutting our own legs out from under ourselves.

    Not to mention the sheer cost for a leather piece is significantly more than for a scale or plate piece then add in the use of "motherlodes" and other items from skinning compared to quarrying or mining, even grave digging has more results. I know that the devs are looking at this but no idea where they are into the investigation and not sure if they when it will be addressed.

    With the amount of hitpoints and resists mail/plate classes get plus talents & discs it makes leather wearing classes pretty worthless. The damage just isn't there compared to the survivability. 
    Any melee class with mail/plate really has no issues with leather wearing classes, I don't care how much range you have, there's too many gap closers, pulls, barriers, heals etc. even as an inquisitor the amount of damage to get someone down isn't there. Except fall damage... I haven't played scim druid since talents (I know surprising) but i'm assuming it has the same issue.
    Not sure what the solution should be exactly, i wouldn't mind the +5 to dmg modifier back on leather plus more HP and little more resists to at least compete.
    Some sort of balancing needs to happen at some point

    Permanent Rewards with bonuses are always a mistake. For players that need a reward to play the game there are a lot of other options. 
    On the whole HOA going Balance with WB that's the way the game is set up to be played. PLAY TO CRUSH Everyone new it was coming just didn't think it would be at this stage. Check mate you win the first trial of Alpha; too bad I was looking forward to some good three way fights on NA.
    See you in the field.

    Remains to be seen if its less of a problem for the intended players of faction game play. This thread serves multiple purposes, to rub HoA/W's face in the mud for what they did, and to give the devs a look into what might happen in faction gameplay. For the record I just want to say I love @Phylor.the.Jester

    wow, talk about drama....
     
    Just because uXa did their own thing doesn't mean we were not good allies. I can tell you the #1 reason we did not want to join the discord for HoA, it was the discipline that is in that discord. Many times Soulein would target or give an order, as he was the battle leader 95% of the time, and everyone would talk over him. It made our ears bleed. There was some communication difficulties when we would stay in our own but for the most part handled our side for the few people we had. Take into consideration that we are a much smaller guild and coming across resources is not as easy as the larger guilds ability and we had to defer at times to acquire the items needed to be successful or "keep up" with the other players. Now, I havent played in a few weeks due to RL family issues and work(damn work), but that was what I saw. Even though we knew about the HoA - W expected merger, we respected them and their decision. We just got tired of the discord and the "defense" strategy always handed to us. I know we only fielded 10-12 at the very most and usually around 5, as our guys are playing other alternatives, but always stayed on target or added confusion to the enemy. uXa prides itself on being individualistic and honest and allows the members the freedom to do what they want. I hope to be back in game soon but we will see. 
    Good Luck to W, HoA, and all the other guilds.
