      We have moved to Discord   08/04/2016

      There has been a strong desire among the community to migrate to Discord for quite some time. As of today, our community will be using Discord and as a result, we will no longer be actively using our TeamSpeak Server.  The TeamSpeak server will temporarily stay active to help inform all of our move to Discord. Within the next couple of months, it will be shut down completely.  For a quick invite to our new Discord server, you can click here.

      Supersonic Series Stacks Up to Support the Troops   11/07/2016

      vVv Gaming Joins Forces With Stack-Up To Support The Troops     We believe that all gamers, regardless of skill, have a place in competitive gaming. We also believe that great things can come from competitive gaming and the communities that support it. As such, starting today, we are joining forces with Stack-Up in their missions and dedicating the Supersonic Series to the troops. Our goal is to help Stack-Up raise money to fund their missions. Each dollar that is donated goes directly to Stack-Up to support their cause. We invite you to join us in our mission by watching our stream, playing in our tournaments, and donating towards a greater cause: supporting the troops through gaming.  
      Stack-Up's Mission   "Founded in 2015, Stack-Up (TAX ID: 47-5424265) brings both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming. With the motto: 'Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion', Stack-Up serves US, NATO and ANZAC veterans through three primary programs: The Stacks, Stack-Up Supply Crates, and Air Assaults." With one of their programs, Stack-Up assembles "Supply Crates" filled with video games and nerdy goodies which are sent out to veterans in combat zones, on humanitarian missions, in recovery hospitals, and sometimes even bases located stateside.  They strive to help improve experiences of service members while they are deployed; instead of focusing on how many days of deployment they have left, Stack-Up encourages them to be participating in video game activities with their battle buddies.  It isn't just about having fun either!  Scientific studies have shown that video gaming can help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, stress, and even pain relief!

      You can watch vVv Gaming events live on our Twitch channel.

  1. Yeah I figured that out when a guy came and stole my strawberries while I was standing there watering them lol. So I thought I would hide some mushrooms in a bush, but someone found them too.
  2. Definitely will hit you up with questions. As a matter of fact I have one already! Where the heck do you find wood? I need 10 lumber to make my scarecrow for farming but for the life of me, I cannot find any trees to cut down. I need to grow some strawberries and mushrooms for my quest. I have been trying to plant/hide the mushrooms in bushes around, but people keep finding them and digging them up LOL.
  3. Character: Kriptoker Nation: .....Nuian? Location: Questing in the Lilyut area? Hey all, it has been quite a while since I have been around. Not since before Rift went FTP. I finally graduated from CSU, Chico and now have a bit more free time. I am checking out ArcheAge right now and so far I am liking what I see. I do skim the forums here every once and a while, and I decided to come on here and see if you all were active/going to be active in ArcheAge and it looks like some of you will be! Which is really exciting! I am still working on learning the game, but hope to see some of you in-game!
  4. I am playing AION again, anyone from here playing? I am Lv49 Asmodean on Siel
  5. Congratulations on Downing GS.
  6. They probably view it as cheating because in a sense, when you stick those on the joysticks, you are 'modding' the controller. Also, if using them gives a definite advantage over someone that does not have them, people will always view them as cheating. The only one I could see as a real modification to how the controller functions (and would affect a players abilities to a noticeable amount), would be the Speed Freek one because it actually changes how you put pressure on the joystick when moving in a side to side motion. (Due to the U shape) For those that will say, adding an FPS Freek is not a modification. Here is a lesson. Modding is slang expression derived from the verb modify. here is one definition of modify transitive verb a : to make minor changes in b : to make basic or fundamental changes in often to give a new orientation to or to serve a new end. So by putting a FPS Freek onto a controller, you are technically making a change in the controller. So basically you are modding the controller. Modding does not just refer to permanent changes such as people adding switches to give their controllers rapid fire.
  7. Well Eriaden, I am sure people would post their ideas/opinions/suggestions, if it were not for Amped being in this thread telling people that he basically does not care what they have to say.
  8. No, I edited my post to change it from a rant. You are the one trying to be some hot shot. Telling me to take a seat and such. So yes, I called you a kid, because that is how you are acting, because I do not think your system is the best. I didn't say it was the worst, just that it is not a very good system. Yes it may work, but it is far from the best. No matter what system you use, there will always be pros and cons. Also as far as I am concerned, a 19 y/o is a kid, regardless of maturity level. Also, I was giving ideas on a different looting system. In Response to Drin and what he was asking, beings he is the one that started this thread.
  9. You don't have to be so defensive. This thread was asking for input/ideas and that is what I am giving. I am not telling you guys to change what your doing. Nor am I saying that it does not work. It is true I am not involved in-game with your raids and looting system, nor am I playing the game currently. I do not know how many have an issue with the system, nor do I care. I was simply replying to this thread with ideas and such. Creating a discussion, as that is what the forums are for. You are trying to turn it into an argument with me, and honestly, I'm not going to drop to your level. I did laugh though, having a kid tell me to 'take a seat' as you put it.
  10. You shouldn't rage. It makes you and those you represent, look bad. You are accusing everyone of wanting to have some control over whether or not they get loot (which is how it should be because if a person has no control on whether they get an item or not, they will eventually lose interest and stop doing it altogether). To me it seems like you are the one that wants to take control of everything. And the way you are acting is pretty immature if you ask me. Getting all bent out of shape because people don't agree with you nor see things your way and only your way.
  11. One thing I see with your 75% Raid Attendance Quota. Where does the '1st Raid' start, for starting this quota? What if a player has just gotten the gear to do Greenscale? And it is Monday (for arguments sake, the first day you do the raid for the week) and you guys full clear Greenscale. So, technically, that player has a 100% Raid Attendance, for the fact, that it is the first time they have been able to attend a Raid. So, do they get to roll on a legendary? Also, what can bring in some problems, is if you guys use the very first time going into GS as your '1st Raid'. Example: Say you did 10 raids already, and then someone goes on your 11th through 30th. So they have been in 20 raids, out of 30. That only gives them a 66% attendance. This means, that they cannot roll on a legendary. Even though they have been there for a large majority of the raids. Yes, they will eventually hit a 75% attendance rate (after 10 more raids, giving them 30/40) but what about the next person, that comes in, after you have done 40 raids? They will have to do an exponential amount of raids, to get to 75%. (Yes I know that you will try to argue that, by that time GS will be on Farm, but that is beside the point). If you want to implement a looting system, you need to make it straight across the board. When you keep changing it, you basically make it look ridiculous and make it into something that you will just change, to meed 'Your' needs. This is not directed at any one person, but this is what will happen and how it will be seen, if there is a constant changing of the looting system. I understand you guys are trying to iron out the bugs with your 'suicide kings' looting system. But that system is flawed, which I am sure you are already aware of. The problem that stands out the most is, you are basically deciding a players chance to get an item. Before an item has even dropped. This can be disheartening to some, if they know right off the bat, that they are essentially wasting their time in a dungeon, because they already know they are not going to get anything. (Some will see it this way, not all) I think that it is good you are trying to divide up the loot based on worth and which classes have first rights to certain things. Such as tanks before DPS and Healers before DPS. The reason I suggested taking a look at DKP (EPGP specifically) is not to tell you to specifically use that system. But as a suggestion to set up some sort of a system, where people 'EARN' their gear. The problem is, with the suicide king loot rules you are using. It does not base it on a person earning their gear, but places it entirely on their luck with rolling and getting a spot on the list, and then the luck that whomever is above them will pass on loot, enabling them to get an item. When someone is earning 'points' towards gear they feel like they are going somewhere. When someone is arbitrarily put on the bottom of a list, that is basically telling them, they are not going to get gear, until everyone above them gets something. But if everyone keeps passing, you might get something, if it is an item you can use and it gets passed all the way down to you. Your system is a good attempt, but in a progression group. Generally loot goes Tank/Healer and then DPS. An example of gearing a dps in progression. Player A does 1500 DPS and Player B does 1200 DPS. Assume bother are same spec/class and skilled etc. A weapon drops which will increase the dps of Player A by 50 giving him 1550 DPS (slight upgrade for him) whereas it will give Player B a boost of 200 DPS giving them 1400 DPS (large upgrade for him). So, in a real progression based raid, where it is always the same people. Any smart raid leader would give the item to Player B because it will increase the overall DPS of the raid by 200 (making it easier to down bosses and progress) whereas Player A would only increase the raid DPS by 50. Now with your system, if Player A was above Player B he could essentially take the weapon, which isn't the best for the raid overall. And this would be perfectly fine, based on your system. That is the inherent flaw in your system. I know you will say, everyone cares about the progression of the raid. But why do they care? Because they want the gear...... They are there to get the gear, regardless of what people want to say. If they did not want the gear, they would probably not be raiding as much. Now If it is for a server first, that is another thing. Now, that was only an example, and I do not have calculations and what not but you atleast can see what I am pointing out. I know that some of you will say, it wont increase the dps of Player B by 200 if it will only increase Player A by 50. That may be true, or it may not be. You don't know, and neither do I. Of course, that situation would be circumstantial and would rely on whether the person was an ass or not.
  12. I used to play a game called Rappelz way back. I played it back in 2006 and it seems to still be in production with content still coming out for it. It was pretty fun back then.
  13. That is awesome that you got some sort of reward. The most I get, are generic replies that I can find on a forum. LoL
  14. I'm following the group too. Although whether I may or may not return to Rift, is still up in the air.
  15. LoL that is great.
