    so it's everyone's launcher that's crashing immediately as you start it right? not just me?

    ok cool

    When it comes to computer issues, as long as everyone else is fucked with you, you'll be ok.

    On that note, my launcher is working now.

    I think it was Forst Aspenwood?

    Combat markers show when a group of 6 or more people are fighting. You will never be able to see everyone on the map as the bandwidth requirements are too high.

    Eeeh. Could just do like every other game out there and only update people X distance away every 5 seconds. Can't be that much bandwidth to send an X/Y coordinate to put a dot on a map.

    Yes, 100. Unless the guild can unlock more during the bwe.

    I'm so excited, folks. Gonna be working from home tomorrow so that I can launch myself onto the servers as fast as humanly possible when they come up. Thinking about rolling a new character to try out some new professions, and I'm really torn between trying warrior or necromancer. Or mesmer. So far I've done engineer and thief up to 20ish and enjoyed both.

    Sucks that I always miss the finale event though. 3am's too late for my blood when I have to be at work the next day for 8am.

    The method to up the guild cap is unkown and will not be active by BWE #2.

    We will have to go with overflow which will be up pretty early on Friday right after I get off of work. (give or take 5pm EST.)

    I should be home before the event starts, so if you want I can get the guild set up as soon as the beta goes live.

    Also, is it possible to invite someone to a guild from their user ID even if they aren't online? It might help if we started a list for who will want to be in the overflow guild this weekend; at the very least, there will be considerably less PMs to deal with during the beta.

    I'm not attached to being guild leader so be my guest. I'll still join up to help you with invites and such.

    That's fine. Have we decided a name for the guild yet?

    I was going to spin a wheel of PA guild names and go with that. I was thinking either a tribute to the GW1 guild and going with Kansas City Hotsteppers or going with The Six Mouths.

    You're leader though so you can pick. It's an overflow on a beta weekend so don't put too much thought into it as long as it's PA related.

    Use the same tag as the main guild though. Need more [NICE] floating around.

    Can you use the same tag on different guilds? I'll try it tomorrow, but if not I'll stick with KCHS. I'm not sure how people will feel about having their tag as "NIC3".

    Not my idea I just remember someone bringing it up before.

    Kryta City Hotsteppers would make the name even better.

  • SeidkonaSeidkona Had an upgrade Registered User regular
    I think the tags are unique but I can't remember the source and I could have dreamed it or something so it's worth a shot.

    Every SA goon had the GOON tag and I know they had multiple guilds.

    Yeah, think tags aren't unique. I would do Kansas/Kryta City Hotsteppers with the [NICE] tag for the overflow. I'll also be around when the servers open up if we need help with setting it up. Though my playing time for this weekend stops at 6pm EST :(

    We'll have to try setting up the guild emblem this weekend. I'll be curious to see if, and how it works. I think you can imprint it somehow on your armor, right?

    From what I read you can put it on your weapon too. Which is awesome.

    I definitely want to see screenshots if you guys make it to that and someone ends up doing it.

    Unfortunately, that requires Politics III, and that alone takes 3 days to research, so it's not super likely.

  • TolerantZeroTolerantZero Registered User regular
    Emblem on armor requires Politcs II. You could at least do that.

  • DraygoDraygo Registered User regular
    Remember you can spend influence to speed up research. I think going for the emblem will be a worthy goal.

  • EnigEnig a.k.a. Ansatz Registered User regular
    We may be able to rush it if we have enough influence, but that does seem unlikely. A screenshot with everyone wearing the emblem would be sweet.

    I haven't seen anything as far as creating an emblem goes, although it's more than likely the same system as GW1, but with different symbols and much more colors.

    As I said, worthy goal. We might not make it this BWE, but should have it in BWE3 if we dont.

    We just got Politics I in the Stress Test - we can start researching the first emblem as soon as we get enough influence.

    Looks like some people unlocked it last BWE, so I think we can do it. Just need to get Politics II for armor.

    Here's the real question: what should our emblem be?

    I saw a crab, a tree, or a unicorn. Trying to think of something that would fit PA.
