  1. You could add disciplines to that list too. Although most only added value instead of changing dynamics.
  2. Where is Shadivak when we need him... Edit: lol I just realized I already commented on this thread.
  3. My condolences to his family and friends. I remember speaking with and playing with Coolwaters in multiple games in the past even though I was never a WB member. This is a huge loss and he will be missed greatly in the gaming community. This is the third ever gamer that I have known to pass away with the first being one of my past guilds leaders: Booms RIP Charles Wesley 'Wes' "Coolwaters" Fowler
  4. Hing, Desolate, and maybe others morphed into Dissent with Shadivak as leader. I don't remember who came from where exactly. I know me and Deli came from Desolate (the remnants of -S- after they pulled out of the game). Deli went missing from our forums and most likely quit gaming. RIP Hamlin/Booms (Hing?). Shadivak was sighted on these forums awhile back (Hing?). Few other Dissent faces on here that may have better memories than me.
  5. I think a small guild would work if they know the game well. Like another guild I knew a long time ago that busted zergs in our beloved shut down game. I will say politics have evolved a lot since back then. Some of the beds out there are just to small for the people jumping in them these days. If it was the weekend after that weekend maybe! I would bring my Shadowbane mug too. Yes, I have one.
  6. Any system can be hacked. 2FA isn't bulletproof. Having an account name different than forum/chat game isn't bulletproof. It only adds an extra obstacle for the hackers when they finally get X amount of information. Not having forum/chat different than login is handing over 1/4 of what they need to break your account. Lets look at it this way. You need your Guildmaster to do something just before a defensive siege. Someone who knows his login name (from here) and knows when he is logging in (spy) could theoretically keep him locked out of his account possibly screwing the defenders out of their city. That right there isn't as low as NORMAL players will go either. Imagine what a real hacker could do.
  7. I think that is a really bad idea. Same for these forums. The account login name needs to be different than the name you communicate with for security purposes. Where I saw this as an issue: https://youtu.be/-XtiXtY6Htc?t=1m35s His chat name was different than the character name he used. So the developers account name is "billyg". Just from that username alone we can deduct that Billy Garretsen may have been the person behind that video. Imagine if this wasn't a developer and was a player using their full real name. With more or less half the community being Shadowbane players we all know what drama can happen. I think ArtCraft needs to take another look at how the account system works. It should break down from account name, then chat name, then character name. Make the account name something that is always hidden. It just adds that extra layer of security to your account.
  8. I would love to see hired guards in Crowfall. Especially if you can rank them like in SB.
  9. I used to have RL contact info for Guilty. I don't know if he sold his music venture or not. That pub's website still exists! Yes it was Arvada. I remember some of the photos from the Dissent Vegas gathering with her, Exit, and Exit's brother. I don't remember who else went. Edit: Talking to Guilty over the phone right now lol. He says he is doing good, living life.
  10. Didn't get one but did get a Chevy Volt! I am about 90% positive this is Shad unless its someone else from our old forums. lol
  11. I am curious to see if this is the real Shadivak. Two questions to prove identity: Question 1: What was one of your favorite MMO's before SB? It was the same game we tried playing after the death of Shadowbane. I lasted maybe a few days although I like that MMO too. You may even remember what class I played as it was the original class I played in that game before Shadowbane's launch. Question 2: Which button was your open mic button in the FPS game during the BJ incident? -TooL/Xaero
  12. Some people want to bake bread. So no this will not be a WoW killer. Even if it becomes a better game.
  13. Only Guildmaster I know who got a BJ while playing an FPS with his mic wide open... Ohh hi Shad!
  14. I miss Shadivak and everyone else in Dissent. RIP Booms. Darby is still alive! Spoke to him via YouTube on this most awesome Dissent video: https://youtu.be/HvBDWWKcPr4
  15. Hello PRX. I see myself in that GW2 picture!
  16. In the two years that we wait for launch there may be way more 3d headgear out for much cheaper than it is now. Its good to have a possible future technology ready to go.
  17. Some companies say Steam keys are hard to get. Others give them away like candy if you had bought their game outside of Steam. Lets hope the candy scenario happens with Crowfall. Is it to early to Greenlight the game?
  18. If they design the game right macroing will not be required.
  19. KODOR! Kodor kodor kodor kodor. Kodor kodor!
  20. With Crowfalls server structure they may hit quite a few "niche" markets in one game. The PVP crowd is bigger than people realize. Of that other mystery game from 7 years ago: 80% of 800k players is 640k that knew they could be killed anytime, anywhere. More people are now exposed to "open combat" and "full loot" style games than ever before. As I stated before that number of people may be more than WoW's active numbers. That is impressive and that pushes that style of game into the mainstream realm. The only reason it isn't is because most are either "niche" MMO's or could be not considered MMO's. Also, didn't WoW take years to hit 1 million players? Then they launched it in China. That and their advertising campaign skyrocketed their playerbase. I don't think they ever went past 3 million in North America. A few other games have almost touched that number at the very least. Imagine what would happen if Crowfall had a superbowl Ad next year. That would only happen with a clean launch of the game. That is something hard to do with any MMO but I want to see this game be successful instead of going to the bug zapper like my other favorite games.
