18. Re: New professions Jul 19, 2006, 20:04 Hezekiah
 
I still haven't purchased factions. Dunno if I will bother. Doubt I will go for this one. There is only one thing that will keep me with GW, and that is if they improve the PvP. Now, I know that that's what factions is for, and what everyone is saying this new one is for, but they aren't improving it how I want, as near as I can tell.

I have no problem with the micro game--with the individual battles or anything like that. It just seems so empty, so void of any long-term progression. Perhaps the best thing to compare it to is Warcraft III. Now, that game has an amazing ladder system, and it has more than just one ladder. It has a ladder for the random team, for 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4--in each region. So, I could compete in my chosen gametype--3v3--and track my team's progress up the USWest ladder. I loved telling people I was in the top 200 in the USWest.

Also, I can go to the Battle.net web site and look at my personal stats. What hero did I use the most? Which race did I do best with? And TONS of other data that I loved to see.

With guild wars, I play a game (and have to find a 4th person because it's limited to 4v4), and then move on to the next. I suppose there's a little progression with titles and faction points, or whatever, but it simply isn't enough. Also, I don't play enough to compete for that lame ladder they have, with what, 1000 clans WORLDWIDE? How the hell am I supposed to get ranked on that? I guess I can join a clan that's ranked, but then that's my clan, not even my team.

Maybe Warcraft III just spoiled me. That ladder system--and don't even bring up the match-making system--was the best. Guild Wars PvP meta game just seems hollow next to it.

For example, as you shoot your machine gun, your mouse is pushed backwards, and your aim goes up.

Fausticle, did you even read my post? I said that if it's $50, there better be enough content to justify it. Where do you get that I wanted it for free?

If they are $50 every time, there'd better be a lot to each one.

I will be on tonight. I bet we could get a lot of the guild together for a battleground.

There's enough of us here that like the game. We should put together some sacrifice games.

sacrifice is in my top 10 games. Maybe top 5, if I ever spend much time thinking about it.

5. Widescreen Jan 11, 2006, 00:31 Hezekiah
 
I have a buddy that is able to play it in widescreen. Not sure how he managed it. Found some hacked executable, or something. But it worked fine.

Hmm, after a bit of looking I found this: http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/

Not sure if that is what he's doing, but it looks like it just stretches the image, anyway. Oh well.


Oh, there's also this: http://forum.tigerdave.com/viewtopic.php?t=85&sid=b484822e6c0524d20d8b414e8e3df95d
I'm still not sure if it will help.

So you guys finished Abbanon's mouth on Saturday? I bet it was easy without Rask aggro'ing everything in site.

We tried another time or two Friday night, but never got far. It's just not the same without a team that actually works together.

48. Ring of Fire Dec 21, 2005, 17:04 Hezekiah
 
I would love to try that mission with you guys rather than bots. Not sure when I will be able to, though. This week looks rough, and I know Rask won't be on until next week. Next time we try, I'll look to see if any of you are on.

11. Guild Wars Questions Dec 21, 2005, 11:26 Hezekiah
 
So I finally made it to the Ring of Fire mission. Rask and I have tried it 5-6 times. The last two times we have gotten stuck at the first group of fire imps. And, frankly, we didn't even come close to getting past them. Anyone have any hints on this part? I am thinking some knowdown spells to stop their meteor showers.

In addition, can anyone recommend a good place to farm for gold and experience?

That's cool, Halsy. Like I said, whatever floats your boat--go a head and believe it.

Oh, and as far as ID goes. I'm not all that familiar with it, but I don't think it has its place in a science class. Probably not even in a philosophy class. More like a "religions of the world" class.

Edit: *sob*. 2 articles up on /. is news that Whedon has given up on Firefly. See?!?! This is why I don't visit /.

There were rumors of a Serenity 2 to go straight to SciFi channel, but I guess that puts an end to that.

Such a great movie and series, it's a shame to let it die. But, if it's going to die, I think Whedon is smart to let it die in glory rather than fizzle out into mediocrity like so many other intellectual properties.

Elaborate.

I'm not really looking to get into a debate or flame war; I just wanted to put in my two cents regarding the comment made. But I will elaborate, since you asked, although I think this board has already covered the topic before. And I don't see much point in debating it. I'm not going to change your mind, and you're not gonig to change mine.

To me, it seems that when people have trouble attributing something to a deity, it is because they don't see any "proof" that there is a deity. And that's cool. To each his own. On the other hand, people who attribute things to deity are generally willing to make a leap of faith. They believe that deity purposefully does not create the babel fish--or provide hard evidence of his/her/its existence--so that people must rely on faith to a degree. Why deity wants people to rely on faith is another topic, I guess, and one that people who do rely on faith argue over.

Anyway, once someone understands that deity wants them to rely on faith rather than cold hard evidence, it's becomes normal and acceeptable to attribute certain things to a diety, whatever those things may be, be they how we got here, why there are so many varieties of wasp, or why men have nipples.

Don't get me wrong, even as a person of faith I think some people attribute way too much to deity. In addition, I am all for finding out how and why things work; I reckon deity operates according to certain unalterable laws. I'm all for finding out, technically, whether we evolved or were "placed" on earth. I don't think one precludes the other.

Your opinions may--and probably do--vary. That's cool. Whatever floats your boat.

Must be handy attributing anything you don't understand to some sort of deity.

Actually, it's because we understand some things that we attribute certain things to a deity.

Everytime I read something like this, it makes me think that we (the human race) are so clueless. Sure, sure, we've discovered a lot, and know a lot, but, just reading that article makes me realize how much we don't know. Or, rather, it makes me wonder how much we don't know.

Woo hoo! Serenity is on DVD today!

I imagine that if Microsoft sold the XBox 360 for $700, it would sell for more than that on Ebay. Not sure where it would end up, but I bet it would be more than $700.
