I don’t have much to say or report. I have been playing SWTOR a great deal. Working on getting my Sage into full War Hero, and not much is changing in that universe.
This weekend is the first Beta event I will be in for the upcoming GW2 release for this year. This was originally a game I was going to overlook. When I heard, even playing field on gear, I was not pleased. I don’t believe a game can have a consistent player base that doesn’t have something to work for. If I’m not trying to gain anything, then what am I doing?
My days on with SWTOR have led our guild onto a path of elitism in a way. The server is small and all names are familar. You can name almost any 50 and everyone has an opinion. Everyone knows each other. The small population has also resulted in an elistist mix of people. Having a casual green player in you warzone tends to mean you’ll lose. Double premades are more than common here. In one way it’s a terrible mix. In another it is in a way producing a much more select elitist community.
4 of the best guild on both sides of the server have opted to create a better guild for the upcoming GW2 release. This isn’t a merger of 4 guilds, no. This is each guild hand cherry picking their best to join one guild formation. A guild birthed from elistist, by elitist of elitist to be the absolute best.
This is pretty scary stuff. I have always been one to go play and find my way into a community. This will be a first for me to be in the formation and founding of one. Kind of exciting stuff. Not fair to which ever server we end up joining. Die hard PVPers aiming at being the best, not just good, will be awful tears from the opposition.
As for GW2, I’m hoping for good things. I’m also hoping I can turn off most of the effects. I’m more hoping the story line is actually interesting. I can’t make it through another Rift story basis. That was just horrible.
