    Yeah, somehow I magically saw the server message in chat about the downtime.

    When we get back in I'll message you Corrigan about joining the clan...

    ... maybe that was a poor choice of words considering...

    So.. I found out the reason my text chat isn't working. When you disable voice chat in-game, because you're using skype or something, you disable all text chat as well. Amazing.

    What? Seriously? Well that's my problem too then. Damn.

    Also, the servers coming appear to have not fixed the ESC/Settings bug. Ha.

    Edit: ...Which would be ok if it didn't reset my Settings! No, Trion. I do not want gross, sickening, horrible Motion Blur. My specs can handle it off just fine.

    Yeah, their methodology there needs a little work...

    Going on, could use an invite to the clan.

    I'm assuming this is for the people who couldn't connect at all.

    Mojojoeo joined up with us, but we were unable to communicate at all. Thats a shitty chat bug. Right now im just using skype with some friends, if anyone wants to group up im not averse to giving out the skype info if you'd like to voice chat with us.

    I am Retaba, I cannot seem to send any tells at all so I could use an invite.

    Also, yeah I am done with using other voice chats, steam would be viable too?

  • CorriganXCorriganX Jacksonville, FLRegistered User regular
    We could make a steam group and use that as a central voice server in the chat room. That could work out well too, with text available.

    Sorry if this has been covered but are the preorder bonuses and/or rewards for entering ark codes redeemable once per character or once per account?

    I got the clan invite, but there was no positive affirmation that it worked.

    After an hour loading and downloading the client, I only had about 20 minutes to mess around. I have the next couple days off, so I'll definitely hit it hard after work in the morning.

  • casper_27dcasper_27d The Friendly Ghost EverywhereRegistered User regular
    completed my first major ark fall, do you only get stuff if you score high? I am still not sure how everything/anything works

  • Man of the WavesMan of the Waves Registered User regular
    There will usually be a piece of loot that drops at the center of the ark fall at some point in the fight.

    Then, there's a big EGO boost, scrip and other currency doled out at the end.

  • QuintessinQuintessin Registered User regular
    Shadow War seems broken, as well as Freight Yard for the PvP stuff. The other PvP is mildly entertaining, but also infuriating. Some of the weapons need to be toned down in PvP. Getting insta-gibbed from Shotguns and Detonators from people just spraying wildly is a bit annoying.

    Hey @CorriganX, can I get a clan invite? I'm noautomobilesgo/Alaria.

    Enjoying this so far, but man the difficulty seems to wobble all over the place, and the number of elites that show up in giant clusters of fuck you is getting a bit tiresome.

    Also, I humbly suggest the thread title be changed to "...it's no job for a soldier."

  • vegeta_666vegeta_666 CanadaRegistered User regular
    I accepted the invite but it didn't appear to work? Hmm, maybe it'll pop later.

    I'm 231 now and still enjoying it for the most part, except for the difficulty spikes like @Lawndart mentions and the reloading bug. I've found I've reloaded a weapon, and after the reload, it doesn't actually do anything and I have to reload again. It's been super annoying for pump shotguns, where I'll empty it, hide and reload and then pop out to shoot and find I didn't actually reload and have to again.

    The random elites popping up and surrounding me on side missions occasionally has been frustrating as well.

    So anyone who may be confused why there nomad doesn't drive like I was...you have to get in the driver side.

    In my defense most games with multiple seats put you in the driver seat first.

    Been there, done that.


    You guys are blazing through those EGO ranks. I guess that's the boosts, though, beta wasn't nearly so fast.

    This is correct.

    I didnt setup the TS3 server to be a PA wide server, it is a possibility but I havent thought through the ramifications of that. It was setup for GW2, and the members of the Penny Arcade forums that play GW2.

    I'll think about it.

    Steam chat should do in a pinch, right? Although, I'm not sure how many of us have been on at the same time.

  • AvynteAvynte Registered User regular
    Hit 303 and did the second instance, was seriously fun. It even had short vehicle parts to rock some turret shooting. It felt about the same difficulty as the first one, but it was a lot more open and had plenty of cover to hide behind for shield regen.

    On a different not, is there any reason we're not just using the normal PA vent? I'm sure there's someone around that's an admin that could rename an extra channel.

    So it turns out the first part of the game is canonically happening before the start of the show.

    I was wondering how Nolan made it out to St. Louis when he was busy chasing arkfalls in the Bay Area.

    In the interim @corehealer was directing us to use the general circus channel(the one where any game is played) or the wild-star channel he made. If we are crossing you by doing so, please let us know and we will desist.

    The coop dungeons have been improved for launch. Im not saying they are the greatest dungeon adventures ever- but changes and tuning did in fact occur!

    Definitely better. Healing is pretty fun.... I have a med gun that hops for like 3-4 targets. So if the group sticks tight I can heal everyone even myself. :p almost cheating.
