    Ok, next publish has LOTS of faction changes that might actually make it interesting.

    Is anyone running/playing factions?

    Im interested in joining one that has a decent playerbase and a vent channel for us to co-ordinate.

    PM me

    Check with TB, they clearly don't have standards. It's guaranteed acceptance.

    I'll give you fair warning - if you do join TB and you join their vent make sure you immediately mute Wasted Ruin.

    Incorrect! P plays on reds, we needed to ally them so we wouldn't flag to each other when raiding.

    Minax guilds ally, TB guilds ally, SL guilds ally, why wouldn't CoM?

    A couple of 2.0 joined their stone until the guild alliance could be sent by the great Dubar.

    Let's see, you can go to Minax, Ego is rebuilding, COM, deal with the likes of Rid (watch out cause they like to kill alliance members) or SL and learn how to walk through bag balls and walls. Or come to TB, where the people treat you with respect. Lynk, if you all would put a bit more effort in defending or stealing the sigils, maybe you too would win in Factions.

    As far as Wasted goes, at least he is a dependable guild mate and will come at a call for help, and that is more then I can say about RID while they were in TB factions other then Dubar.

    Your definition of winning in factions differs greatly from mine. Putting you and your guildmates in stat loss is the only victory I need.

    We've got our horses now, I don't see a need to be zerged by greater dragons again with a defense of a faction base with no choke point.

    :)

    P.S. - The massacre of your guild while we were TB was a result of you killing one of our members in Yew.

    LOL, see how much you know, that would be a Greater Dragon, bola and ninja for the win.

    OK, lynk, which GF guildmate of mine attacked and killed a Rid alliance mate? And thanks for informing me of the massacre of my guild by yours, it was sooooo impressive I have forgotten. So it was RID that killed 2 alliance mates, afk at the brit bank, then as well?

    This is an outstanding first post i hope it leads to a long legacy of worthless dribble and poor smack talking. P- is in CoM we are in CoM we kill the opposing factions we dont like to get hit by each others area spells when we are forced to grinder fight in bases. There that wasn't so hard was it.

    This I dont buy Ara to kill a tb alliance member or even a guild member on purpose no, accidently or defending herself I could see. but then again I could see her son doing it not her tho. If you took the time to talk to Ara about it, instead of getting emotional about it, and leaving TB for COM things could of been straightened out.

    He accused you of being the guilty one, but I am impressed tho of it being a massacre since GF never finds the time to get on at the same time. Had to be a massacre of 1 or 2 gf players

    Michelle, why do you post when you have no idea of what you are talking about. Have you ever PvP'd, ever?

    It was a massacre of the TB alliance before we broke off and went CoM.

    Your own word's not mine
    When you say your guild that means our guild GF not the alliance since Im the co gm of GF it gives me the right to post so there. Maybe I have or maybe I haven't pvped my business not yours. Lets put it this way Im good at what I do in the factions. :D

    Lets see, some words you wrote a while back. (These post can be found on the 3rd page. in the OMG never thread.)


    Some words from another tdr member (in the same thread)

    Now i see there is an official alliance with the same guild calling it lame to be associated with this bunch. I just found it to be ironic. Good enough explanation?

    You are uninformed. If you actually left the gate once and a while for PvP in other places you would know that I am no longer affiliated with TDR.

    Lynk has came over to the dark side, and to all you gms of other guilds here tell your members to stop asking us if they can join 2.0. We aren't recruiting.

    I did notice you wore a 2.0 tag, but as I saw several other TDR/J*W (or former according to you) members. I just assumed it was another faction stone TDR would use in order to faction fight in different factions. Sorry for my mistake, although I didn't have to go anywhere else other than yew gate to find you. You seem to have your fair shard of that place as well.

    It wouldn't just be you that had to be affiliated with TDR for me to find it ironic. If any 2.0 was still affiliated with TDR/JW/RiD alliance I would still find it ironic.

    Hell there is irony throughout the whole thing just knowing your former stance on guilds with super fast connections and ungodly incredible computers, (and/or other things), and how it ruined the game, to basically joining a guild you used to bash... also ironic.

    Last I checked, its hard to control a dragon when your in statloss.. Also.. quit crying about dragons thanks, if a pet is a problem for you maybe you should re-evaluate how good you think you are.

    You're absolutely right. Greater Dragons were the finishing touch - the DEVs have done it. They have completely balanced PvP with that addition.
     
  35. The War Hero

    The War Hero Guest

    PvP will never be completely balanced, because there will always be trash like you, crying about one thing or another, anything you can't figure out is unfair, or balanced wrong, or HAX! Most dragon tamers die in about one combo, really? of all the things you could cry about your picking tamers? Not the cheaters or bugs or any real problems for that matter, you pick on the tamer? I don't know if you realize this but they aren't even mounted, its not like they are going to chase you down.

    Again - you are 100% correct. I just can't figure out how they do it. Once I figure out how to set an all kill macro, as well as a smoke bomb macro, I'll join the ranks of the PvP elite.

    quoted for truth, that thing gets more kill shots than any of us
     
  41. greater drags are so slow anyone could run away from them, and there are many templates a player can use that will deal an equivalent amount of damage to someone with the agressor still being able to stay mounted. i think the guys that run 2x as fast as everyone else and can run through objects are a way more serious problem ingame than any one template.

    I noticed for some reason if you are in the SL faction you can run and cast faster then everyone else. Is this a bug?
