News Comments > Turbine Layoffs
2. Re: Turbine Layoffs Jul 8, 2016, 12:31 [SC]TherMight
 
This is the curse of the Turbine Raid.

It's been several years since they told their customer base that most of the player base doesn't do raids and it's nor worth their effort to build that content for a small % of the player base. This is when all the good players left the game for other games like Rift that actually cared about raiders.

About that time they also had great layoffs and slimmed down.

Now a brand new raid has just come out and boom... more layoffs even deeper than what was needed to build the raid. It's pretty sad. I still know a very dedicated player base there but have no real motivation to go back and play even though I have a lifetime account and it's free for me.

I remember a giant Atrox in a purple Borat-style mankini who would dance in one of the main cities.

If people paid him enough in donations he would stop and put his clothes back on.

OMG... I jumped in 2001 when PC Gaming magazine wrote a huge positive article about how AO has recovered from its initial bad launch.

I remember writing a java app for the community to twink implants. Implants were greatest for rewarding hard-core players with some extra fun.

Our 500+ player guild The Dojo held a "Newbie Race of Doom" where players tried to make it through level 110 area as a level 5 noob. We had "reporters" flying in their Yalmaha ships snapping screenshots of the most hilarious deaths.

It's simple.
Is it "Jraphic Interchange Format?"
No...it's actually "Graphic Interchange Format"
So as with "graphic" it's "gif" as in "gtfo" not "jif" as in "Jerry"

That said I still usually say it the "wrong" way but only because it's what I'm used to

So Jay leaves D3 team and what we get is 'seasons' of grinding out 3 million things over and over for pets, banners, wings and stickers.

Hah, Jay Wilson sure left his mark on D3 and it stunk pretty bad.

It's really hard for me to understand what drove people to even continue playing this game. I had many many hours of fun before auctions were even removed but who really thought they were going to transform it into anything better?

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront Open Beta Begins
16. Re: Star Wars Battlefront Open Beta Begins Oct 8, 2015, 18:15 [SC]TherMight
 
So far I feel like the giant open maps are less fun. I've only played this for a few days before ACTUAL beta begun. Maybe now with noobs who don't know what they are doing and have 0 rank it is different but...

Where is the strategy and tactics when you continually get picked off from across the map by random people holding blasters?

I am hoping there are some smaller maps where it's not such a chaotic crap-shoot. In the beta maps you can not protect your flank at all.

I will also admit A) I'm not an 18 yo with lightning reflexes anymore B) The controller has always felt inferior for first person shooters. C) Finishing near last place is not very gratifying.

Fantastic. Good riddance GFWL.

Great game. Excited to get my saves into steam cloud and actually connect with people better with steam than that GFWL crap.

4. Do not buy TRITTON headsets! Jun 9, 2014, 14:17 [SC]TherMight
 
These headsets are horribly cheaply made. Before I bought one I read an Amazon review warning that the plastic is cheap and will snap too easily. I figured why would it snap if I was gentle with it?

Well guess what, accidents happen. Admittedly *I* dropped my headset one time. Sure enough the plastic piece they were talking about snapped off immediately and this was just after 30 days so I could not return it and didn't want to bother RMAing it because I didn't want another headset that would just break again.

On the other hand I have dropped and brutalized my Astro A40s many times and they are still perfect.

Do not buy TRITTON. Cheap crap. No wonder they had to sell out to Mad Catz.

News Comments > Legit Elder Scrolls Online Accounts Banned

As a Nightblade I have played through the 50 level main quest and all guild quests successfully and gotten into VR1 content.

100% of Nightblade is NOT bugged. It was perfectly reasonable to ship them as is and tweak later. It's a really fun and versatile class. I pvp as well though my main focus is getting VR5 or VR10 first. Also very excited about VR10 for Craiglorn end game PvE that is coming.

I have had no problems killing nor staying alive with a couple different dual wield assassin builds for different situations.

I swap to bow for ranged kite/survival as needed but only really need 2 bow actives and 1 dual wield skill. Rest is all class skills from the 3 trees.

As for bans or exploiters or bots this has not bothered me.
It is not hard to get hits on the boss of a dungeon with all the other yahoos hanging around. Sometimes I stop and farm a couple bosses before moving on but that takes too much time as the respawn timer is long now.

Gold spammers aren't a problem once you get out of the noob areas.

The bank and guild bank works fine. It occasionally slows to sync. Big deal.

Mountains out of mole hills in typical internet fashion here. IF you are looking for an excuse not to play an MMO it's not that hard to dream one up or assume the worst. If you want a fun and functional MMO to play ESO is that.

My Astro A40s have been serving me damn well for years.

Pricey, but worth the cost.

Astro A40s. Every bit worth it. Built like a tank. Has attachments for consoles too. You can skip the mixamp to save cost.

I like "around the ear" "can" headsets for comfort of being able to play for hours without my ears hurting.




Do NOT buy Tritton. They crack apart if you drop them once.
I won't buy Turtle Beach again as they cramped my ears from the sides.
Plantronics are kind of like Toyota. They work but are cheap.

I played every Ultima but U V as it came out. Love British and the franchiise. I think I finished first 7 of those games completely.

But... why am I a bit worried watching this at the ambition of trying to convince modern gamers its worthwhile to chat in text to the NPCs?

Also hope he has some auto-arrange or list based version of inventory.

Seriously though best of luck to British on this.

My buddy is getting this for Linux. Can a Windows 8 client play seemlessly together with Linux players? I assume so... but some games partition their community by OS/platform.

Thanks in advance. And thanks for those tips above.

From that "feature" list of 2.0 it looks like they are following this formula:

EA's v2.0 = Most companies v1.0 + Huge steaming piles of fail

Great reason to stop ever beta testing for EA.
Good chance you'll lose access to all their games due to their own bugs.
