    So we're rolling Elyos on Zikel?

    I'm pretty neutral about which faction we play, but I strongly suggest keeping everyone in one guild, instead of splitting into one for each faction. Especially since it doesn't seem like PA has a gigantic Aion community.

    You all just want me to roll cleric so you're forcing me to go Elyos. You know I can't stand the cloth, leather, and plate armor designs. I see how it is. It's a conspiracy.

    I want to roll Elyos and play with the largest PA guild.
    So, what server do we meet up on, guys?

    the asmodian side really needs some leadership, i really really REALLY want to play asmodian but it seems like the majority of PA wants to play Elyos and the Elyos side is a bit better organized.

    I wish i could take the reigns but working 12 hours a day every day kind of kills that for me D:

    I would also prefer to roll Asmo.

    Especially since the largest PA contingent wants to be on an east coast server, and I'd like at least a west coast server (if not Oceanic).

    But I doubt I will be able to get the game right at launch day, since I'm in Korea and region stuff gets all weird.
    It's an amazing pain in the ass to play the western version of a Korean game over here.

    Honestly I have a lot of free time so if it's needed i'm willing to set up and run the Asmo legion. I've never run a guild before so there's that, and if we still have someone who was planning on it I don't want to step on any toes.

    This right here. This isn't WAR where we had a good number of people on each side. I think the entire PA Aion group is about the size of The Candymancers, which was the smaller of the two WAR guilds. As I said before, I'd prefer Elyos because I can make FFXII clones but I'll play wherever the larger group is. There really isn't a huge difference between the two factions. There really isn't established lore that we've been following for years that make us more likely to choose one faction over another. Its tanning bed fairies vs Hot Topic fairies. They're essentially the same. Splitting us between two factions is just going the make the PA legion even weaker than it already is.

    Silly tips for new players:
    ...

    This answered nearly every gripe I had with the UI. Thanks! I also ended up setting R to auto-run because I'm so used to having it, and I moved the flight keys down to F and V. Have to see how well that works.

    I'm pulling for Elyos and I live on the west coast, but I'm ok with an east coast server.

    Maybe if we compile a list of the current people planning to play and their desired faction, we can see whether splitting factions can work or not (if we haven't already decided). It's likely that there will be some attrition after the first month or so, so that should be considered as well. Also if the Asmos fall apart they could always roll on our server.

    I just don't see us having anywhere near enough people to support two guilds, and this isn't like the WAR launch where different factions had different classes.

    It seems like a poll in the thread OP with the 4 race/server region options as choices would probably be the best option.

    Alright. I was the one that was supposed to make the Asmo legion, and I'm still willing to do it, but I guess we should get things started.

    Asmodians! Would we like an east coast server, or a west coast server?

    I'd prefer west myself, and it seems a few others do, but let's get this settled. We're a mess right now.

    well whichever way it goes I hope we have at least this many people playing regularly.

    That's 15 so far on that list, which isn't too bad for a not-huge-WoW MMO launch.

    You can still be an emo if you're Elyos. In fact, it's even better since they have everything in the world to be happy about and you're still choosing to be a sadsack.

    Okay, this is getting fucking ridicules. This is exactly what I have been trying to avoid!

    So stop it now!

    We are rolling as both Elyos and as Asmodian. On separate servers. Why? Because in doing so in no way breaks up our community. You know why it doesn't?

    BECAUSE WE'RE ALL STILL PLAYING TOGETHER!

    If you roll Elyos, you have Asmo alts. If you roll Asmo you end up with Elyos alts. And because we have Legions set up for both races, we're guaranteed a cohesive community for when that happens. Instead of FORCING people to play one race against their will, and inviting desertion from the people who are so very rightly disgusted by forced selection like that, we are anticipating the differing views of the people who are intending to play!

    This is not WoW! There are not five races per side, allowing people to select the species they enjoy the most even if they are hard wired into a side in the conflict. People will naturally gravitate towards one of the two races and I am not going to deny them that right. That is why I determined to make a twin headed PAA community from the beginning, so that even though they split off into two necks, heads, and minds they are still connected by a single core body! They are unified by the very base of their being, not split in half.

    I am establishing an Elyos Sorcelator legion, and Psycho is establishing an Asmodian Witchalok legion. That is set. The only reason it didn't go smoothly for the Open Beta is because Real Life beat on Psycho until it's arms got tired. The Live launch will go without those problems. And even if there are problems, I am more than willing to step into things and straighten them out. The only reason I didn't do anything for the Asmodian legion during OB is because I didn't see any signs that I needed too. The Recruitment channel seemed like it was doing fine, but whatever. Neither here nor there.

    The plans are set. Everything is go. There is NO default race. People will roll what they want to, on the servers we have designated. And everything will go fine, you know why? Because we're the f-ing United States of America. We know how to be split into 50 different territories and still come together as a single unit. So knock all this "There can be only ONE" stuff off, because it is so very unhealthy in the long term...And it has gotten on my last nerve over the past several weeks.

    And as the Legion General for the Sorcilators over the Closed and Open Betas, I can attest that we will have a full level 1 Legion within 72 Hours of Launch. That is not speculation, that is a forecast based on my experience in the game up until now. So you don't even need to worry about numbers at this point. Hell! You shouldn't even be worrying about numbers to start with! Leave that to your generals to worry about!

    You guys should just be having fun, calling each other Unicorn Humpers or Goth-Tards and shit! Leave the heavy planning to an idiot like me who dug that grave all on his own. Have fun, go wild, and kick up some dust! Just don't try to plan out things on your own because having 10 people with 10 plans just leads to chaos. If you really have such major concerns that they need to be addressed toot-sweet, then post or PM. Let me know and I'll adapt things, like I have been up until now.



    Quoted because it contains pertinent information. Not to annoy people. Well, maybe a little.

    In other news, due to various reasons it is looking likely that we're going to have to choose new servers for the Live launch. So my question is, Do you want East Coast time or West Coast time?

    -Get hopping people. I'm going to need good numbers on a server selection if I'm going to issue a challenge to PvP or CAD to be our opposing force.
