    I could really get behind "The Omega Hare" or just "Omega Hare"

    It's a subtle nod and the name itself is kind of silly but not overly so. I like it :D

    Huh...3011 score at 1680x1050 BW with the Maximum preset. Guess my old HD 5770 has more oomph than I thought.

    I was running the game at Standard and having problems...then again, I don't play MMOs without watching shows on my other monitor.

    I should probably use the laptop for that instead...

    Yeah, actually the Omega Hare one is good. I completely forgot about that comic until whoever it was linked it in the thread.

    Been a few years since my last re-read of all the PA archives.

    Yeah I am cool with that too, for the LS or FC.

    There's not a lot known about PvP at this point, since it's not in and not a lot is known, but afaik it's a top level thing anyway. It's not like you're gonna get ganked WoW PvP server style.

    I've read that the planned PvP down the line is 4 and 8 man arena's and a pvp lake like WvW in GW2. But that's just rumor as far as I know.

    What's the word on Arcanist/Summoner/Scholar?

    Will it be available at launch? Will it even see any testing?

    Yes. No, unless you count p4 as testing, but you shouldn't.

    Have they even given us any class info? Such as skills? Or in the case of the Summoner - what summons will be available at launch?

    I saw some datamined skills somewhere, but I'm too lazy to go digging. Summoner was described as pretty much a WoW warlock, mostly dots and pets. Don't know which summons will be at launch (besides carbuncle), but they have shown pictures of Ifrit and Titan.

    Anarchist and its Jobs will not be available until launch. Anarchist gets Carby whilst scholar gets a fairy and summoner gets baby primals. Other that that there is not a lot of concrete info on them as they are still in development.

    I'm down with the Omega Hare. It reminds me so much of the first time I found Jaggedy-Eared Jack... The comic is an accurate portrayal of that day.

    I been reading that arcanist will be an option to play in phase 4. I gotta check the forums again to see if it's true or not.

    Naturally it makes sense, might as well have people play the new class/job to see if there is any bugs or balance issues that need to be addressed.

  • RiokennRiokenn Registered User regular
    I agree with Omega Hare.

    I'm not seeing a problem with Lalafell House

    It's just as much a joke name as Omega Hare or what have you, and it's not a digital fedora like We Are Nice Guys, and it's not a dick joke either.

    If/when we vote, Lalafell House is my vote.

    Sow Unrest.

    Wait no that might be Revolutionist.

    Also Omega Hare is is only a slight nod to PA and references FFXI as well which at least makes it relevant. Once of the most memorable things in FFXI (among many things) was how you could very easily get your ass handed to you by a ladybug or small rabbit.

    As much as I like Falafel (It is quite tasty) I like Omega Hare more :D

    It reminds me of very fond times.

    @Greg USN How many people are you bringing in?
    And who here is NOT going to join the FC if it is named something you don't like?

    "Wait" he says... do I look like a waiter?
  • RenzoRenzo Registered User regular
    I didn't even notice that i was reading it wrong and the suggested name is instead Falafel House.

    That's even better.

    Though I did lol at "Inevitable Schism"

    Not opposed to having it being literally called inevitable schism

    It might seem like I'm taking this all very seriously but please keep in mind I'm not actually and am up for anything~

    Huuuh? So sorry if a repeat question, anyone know how long phase 4 will be?

    Via YoshiP at the E3 Q&A the open beta will probably end just a few days before the early start, so there really won't be much downtime at all.

    I am so confused. I thought Phase 4 was the early start, as in characters made in Phase 4 (open beta which anyone can join) would not be wiped and would continue into the live game?

    Beta 4 is the "Open Beta", will reportedly last 1 week, and then the servers will go down for a few days. After that the Early Access will start for the people who pre-ordered and at the end of that (it should also only be a few days) the game will go Live to the masses.

    There is no wipe planned for Beta 4, however they reserve the right to wipe should it be necessary.

    Lol kind of love how Omega Hare popped back up. It was one of the suggestions I made, before the thread kind of went with wang. Though on the safe side what Farg said farther up

    And was there contention with what Dude with Herpes mentioned earlier, about letting the SE++ guys pick the name?

    Edit: Oh and since I apparently lack some of the funnybone, what is the humor with Falafel House? It's more or less lost on me, is it just cause its rhymey?

    re: Falafell House

    http://www.wafflehouse.com/

    It's a chain restaurant in the US. Big iconic yellow sign.

    At least, that was my take on it.

  • GyralGyral Registered User regular
    Greasiest spoon restaurant you can find as a chain. And, at 3 in the morning, nothing soaks up the booze in your system like a waffle and hash browns.

    Also, Lalafell is close to Falafell.

  • RenzoRenzo Registered User regular
    there's that too yeah

    and who doesn't like falafel?

    that one dude in Batman Begins, and he was a jerk.

    I think the joke is actually that Lalafell is close to Falafell, thus Lalafell House seeing as there are tons of places in the U.S. called Falafell House. Nothing to do with waffles at all.

    Of what's been suggested I like Omega Hare the best.

    oh, okay then. I've never seen a Falafel House, so I guess that went over my head too.

    I am objecting to Lalafel house. It is an SE++ inside joke, and is not inclusive for other forum members. All of our proposals, even the penis jokes, have at least not been exclusive to a forumer subset.

    Part of the reason we looked mainly at comic references as names was that at least everyone had a chance of seeing it and recognising where it came from.

    That and I really dislike lalafel. :(
