    GL is pretty active
     
  3. Yeah GL is pretty active, are you looking for just fights or are you interested in defending/raiding and actually dealing with the sigils?

    "You" don't stat me. I finally brought a char to ATL 4 days ago since 5 of my guildies already did a while back. It's active, crap load of OJ's. Bunch of reds. Good times. Your guild wouldn't like it. The entire shard doesn't band together vs the handful of us that get on. So it wouldn't work out that well for you there.

    I know it's not as fun as sitting at Yew on Great Lakes waiting for 2 PWnT bluebie dragon bola'ers, 4 TDR bluebies, and 2 BC bluebie mare archers (all nonfactioners) setting up our mostly red faction guild for the few OJ's that will run out of the house for the kill shot, but what can you do.

    You talk like your guild is something special Lynk. Your guild shows up with entirely blue factioners, so you never have the annoyance of being setup by every bluebie wannabe at the gate. Then you want to pound your chest like you're some sort of hero. Nice run yesterday btw. Maybe one day you'll take me on without having 2 cross healers. Doubtful though.

    The only time I might need a cross healer from you is when you are on one of your tamers. You don't die because you abandon your guildmates as soon as you see our second spell start to cast. We've got a solution to that though, SOBE felt it last night.

    I can't help it that the random blue people follow my group around and try to get in on the action, I guess they see us destroy you guys and want to help. In fact when we see people follow us we go 2 v 2 each other for 15 mins to allow you to kill the blues so they go away then we come back. We know you guys won't actually fight unless you outnumber us, otherwise we can't keep up with you.

    The fact is your guild members won't even fight us unless its like 6 v 3, and even then once we drop one of them everyone runs. Hell, when we come on screen you all scatter.

    This brings me to one of our most recent fights, me on chuck norris and geno on his mage. Spanky bolad me, we synched him, he died. I'm footed and you and SOBE are both trying to hit me. We synch on SOBE and you run never to be seen for the remainder of the night. That is how most of our fights go Saint.

    We'll be on with 4 people tonight, please try to prove me wrong.

    See its called teamwork, if we log on reds everyone logs on reds so no one can be singled out. Usually there are enough oranges that its better to play a blue. Plus our blues are parry mages, and with your guild of quick little RNG dice rolling newb stars parry shuts every one of you up (which explains the constant running).

    Its ******** to play anything but a blue in factions. I know you guys are only in factions for the Yew gate fights, but for the ones that actually fight in the towns (especially TB base) having a red is just ********.

    The other day I managed to trick a red into flagging on a guard in TB base. Was priceless.

    I wouldn't exactly call it retarted...Some people like the excitment & challenge of playing the reds in factions! Quit being a nerd step out of your base and come to yew and steal my bandies!!:dunce:

    You are about as delusional as Sedric, and I love how Cetric follows you around like you're his binky yet him and his 2 bluebie tamer bunnies are afraid to go orange. Spanky got blown up to 4 precast flamestrikes that he walked into. That's all you guys can do. Synch or get rolled 1v1. You call me a ***** because I don't sit on screen to try and heal through 4 flamestrikes? You're kidding me right? Nice try on your 1 red last night btw. You know your 1 red you play right? The subpar ninja Resurrection. Sorry if you whiffed on my uber parry mage 4 times in a row last night while I was already fighting another OJ. Maybe you should try using a red mage that sits out in the open hero. You spent so much time posting of your greatness over the years that you actually believe what you wrote. You're "okay" on every temp you play, but not great on any of them. It's okay though. At least you're having fun.

    You may consider this an insult, but I consider it a compliment.

    Sometimes a flame strike synch is the way to go. Its funny if we run on screen and cast a spell EVERY ONE of your guys jets off screen, comes back hoping to get their RNG uber winning dice roll off.

    I do play 3 reds actually. I had pixel out last night at the harrower... you should remember that since my cu redlined Quiet One before an archer took the kill shot. I have another red necro/scribe that I dont play because my new guys haven't finished their red mages yet. Don't worry buddy we'll be on reds sometimes. Of course we'll come on parry to clean up all the RNG trash first.

    Hehe, true. I had my share of red factioning in Kdl, though. Except there it worked, because we stomped the OJ so fast there was no time to xheal. Still, so many reds joined factions after the GZ's were dropped, it'll be interesting to see how they do fighting in Brit when the guards come home. :D

    Ah, no Yew Gate thieving for me today. I finally made enough gold (about 30mil in stolen 'crap') to buy 120s for my mage, and I got that account up. So Ill have my mage and a redone NoisyCricket fielded soon. I know you missed the Cricket, Saleena. ;)

    *tries to glare at everyone*

    Ok, if I wasn't so blasted HAPPY that it appears the timers are back to 10 hour corruption and 3-day town ownage I would have to scold ya all for hijacking this thread to the pvp side!

    Papa Smurf asked a very good question Alexei, you into factions for the pvp or the running sigs, defending bases, raiding bases, owning towns?

    True Brit on Great Lakes always steal/run, defend, raid in an attempt to control the towns. Of late Minax has mounted a couple excellent defenses and those have been great fun and SL has put put up couple good ones too.

    Every time I step through Yew gate I seem to get trampled by orange named chars so if pvp is your focus I believe you would find it on Great Lakes as well.
