Queues..and wanting to hit something   Leave a comment

I’m not sure if I’m the only one out there who has a problem with scenario-queues lately, but in the last couple of days it rarely happened that I entered a scenario and was happy because I could expect a decent fight.

Most of the time the scenario is already running for several minutes and the general direction of the outcome is.. set. When it happened that I was there at the start..well, then we were approx. one group vs. 2 full groups.. or the other way around.

So despite the general getting crushed by premades..or steamrolling the enemy (because most scenarios end to be a spawn point’s just a question which spawn point is being camped.).. you also face the problem with lopsided number of combatants in the beginning of the scenario.

I wonder if that problem could be solved by increasing the preparation timer from 30s upwards to maybe one or two minutes? If the scenario pops up, you may already delay the entering by one minute… so why start the scenario 30s earlier than those people who have to think about it (or delay it for another reason) may decide?

I would like both sides ready for the fight and not that imbalanced stuff I currently face…at least number wise a balanced start shouldn’t be that much of problem. I’m not even talking about setups..just numbers.

First impressions of the new city siege   2 comments

I keep it short and simple as I don’t want to enrage ;)

Mythic added to freenown from zone locking now freeloot in unbalanced city sieges..

…more to come after more testing of the siege.

ultra-short version: Up to now..I just don’t like (maybe even hate) it.

I have my name back!   Leave a comment

It’s been a long weekend with little time for WAR..but finally (after one year) my Runepriest got his name back.

It happened that at the server transfer back in may 09 I had to change my name from Karic to Carik..with no Karic present on the destination server I was quiet frustrated that I had to change my name.  I had a weird error message when trying to add him to my friend list, so it couldn’t be order or destro and there was no sign ever of a Karic on the realm war page.. I tested it all.. but no Karic out there.

So I wrote an ingame ticket asking if my name could be changed…but nothing happened.

So last friday I tried for the first time to write a ticket using the web-interface..and voila.. I have my name back! Thank you very much.

That was my highlight gaming wise in the last days.. In some next post I will write what I think about the city siege changes and patch 1.3.5.

Meanwhile.. Prost! (my little lecture on German?! ;) ) .. The next round is on me. ;)
