Second half of the Update that came out earlier this week. Include a reminder about the M:Fist opening, lots of info on Star Conflict (PoB!), details on multiple platforms that members are playing that don't earn CFs (these guys are crazy), and the summary of Gaming Competitions for this month.
For anyone who may have missed Ernordeth's News Report earlier this week. We have opened up applications for a Magistrate. If you are interested please be sure to email Ernordeth and myself no later than Monday, April 20th. Why so late? Let's be honest, I'm going to Star Wars Celebration this weekend and will definitely not be reviewing applications while I'm there. :)
Several topics for this game in this report. Lets start with some of the updates they've just introduced.
These Corporation (Guild) ships can be used to compete for sector control on the actual map of the world. In order to build a Dreadnaught there a few criteria:
So what can we do with the Dreadnaught?
This is a pretty significant part of the game, and I know our Star Conflict players are already searching high and low to earn every last scrap of Iridium for one of these Behemoths. If any of this sounds appealing to you, check out Star Conflict, the game is free to play and available on Steam. The Gaming Information page has information on in game guild officers who can invite you into our Corporation.
It is important to note that our Corporation has a 20 player cap right now, unless we put more RL money into expanding it. So if you haven't been on in a few months and we run out of spaces for active members there's a good chance you will get bumped. Nothing personal, just trying to maximize the space in the Corp.
Got some feedback that Star Conflict PVP Matches are taking a bit longer than initially planned. I'm in the process of gathering data from a few folks on this, and once we have a decent set of match times we may end up increasing the CF rewards for this activity. Stay tuned for more.
So we've been talking about this for a while. Here's the finished version that's going up on the wiki shortly. A section to add PoB requests will be added to the Gaming Submissions page as well:
PoBs will be awarded when a member earns Max Synergy on Ships in each of the following Ranks:
In the attached Screenshot the player would need two more Synergy Points on their 3/5 Hercules (Ship Rank 1), one more Synergy Point on their 4/5 Dvergr (Ship Rank 2), and to purchase then fully Synergize (?) a Rank 3 Ship to earn the Rank 1-3 Pendant of Blood.
Ships which start at max synergy (shown in screenshot with yellow/gold background) will not count towards this. Each of these PoBs is a one time reward, If you already have earned the Rank 1, 2, 3 PoB getting another set of Rank 1, 2, and 3 ships will not result in a second PoB.
Gaming Submission and wiki are being updated for this change shortly after this report is posted.
Many members have been bringing the DB and Star Wars to platforms outside of our normal stomping grounds. This is completely cool. There's no reason the only games that we as a club should play together are ones where Clusters of Fire can be earned. So here's a list of the other Guild/Clan/Things that our members have in various games:
Those are all of the "extra" social groups that I'm aware of floating around right now. If there are others, or if you'd like to create one for a game you find yourself playing with other members let me know.
There are two Gorefests in April (for March and April). Dates are as follows:
