  1. Nytefury liked a post in a topic by Kcdmgirl in An Open Letter to Everyone in the AJSA PS4 Division   
    This is an open letter to everyone in the AJSA PS4 Division
    Dear Everyone,
    I am posting this here because I wished to post this in the PS4 chat, but I felt it was too long, so I am putting it fully here. First off, I must give everyone within the PS4 Division a very heartfelt thank you. I found this community when I first got Overwatch for Christmas 2016, I was only level 15, and I kept on being matched up with twelve year olds in-game. Having been on the AJSA website for many years, I posted my request, my subtle plea - I just wanted somebody to play with. Somebody who wouldn't screw me over, who would look past the fact I was only a low level player in my first ever online multiplayer game, and actively help me become a better player. Enter WITHASTICK, the Community Leader who answered my call. At first, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, truth be told, I was scared. I was scared I would face the rejection I always do in real life, when you're an outlander like me who lives in a small town, where everyone knows everyone, having to continue being the lone wolf. But how do wolves live? In packs of course. It seemed I had finally found a pack that accepted me. 
    Everyday, I wake up, I go to College, and I go home, sometimes work will take the place of college in that sequence but its the same sequence nonetheless. From the amount of moving around I do, its hard to make friends, I don't fit in with people where I live - my lifestyle, my ideals, my mentality is just too different. I used to dread going to college, knowing just how alone I was, but now, its changed. I may not know your real names, I may not know your faces, you may consider it sad, but I consider you all as friends. In the short time span I have been in the community, I already have so many memories to look back upon and smile about - be it being up late at night helping me with a stupidly complicated math problem whilst trying to calm me down, getting everybody ranked in Comp on Overwatch and dreading the result after exchanging placement horror stories, Torbjorn's corpse always getting POTG even after somebody got a triple kill as Symmetra, glitching guards in Dishonored, the amazing armor designs from For Honor, the Horion Zero Dawn hype, the Nioh tips, and everyone becoming digital photographers in an effort to get their picture on the community page. 
    As I said before, I used to dread College, but now, I have something to look forward to, it makes the days shorter and less painful knowing that there's a group of people I can look forward to hanging out with, even if we don't know each other's names or faces. 
    From the bottom of my heart, 
    Thank You
    Yours Sincerely,
    ASOBlueRose - AJSA PS4 Division

    ive been excited for this game, looking forward to the revamp of the world and guild features come March 13th (and future MAY build). will be nice to test that out before release.
    would be nice to see a strong presence in this game with a few guilds made up for pushing map domination (PVP guild and sister pve/industry/market guilds)
  3. DoctorEvil liked a post in a topic by Nytefury in Albion Online release date announced!   
    For those who have been keeping their eye on Albion Online it was announced today that the release date will be July 17th.
    I have been playing this game off and on through the various wipes since its first alpha release 2 odd years ago. The best way to briefly describe it is a sandbox MMO with a deep resource gathering/crafting/character development element with a top-down MOBA style combat (I should add with full loot pvp in late areas of the game). Even in Alpha I had a lot of fun with it.
    If this remotely interests you check it out at Albion Online

  5. Nytefury liked a post in a topic by Grimlen in Attunement - World Boss Locations.   
    As our group starts the final part of the dungeon step in the attunement process, I decided to look ahead particularly toward the world boss section of the attunement. There wasn't much information I could find right away but after some digging i was able to come up with a list of all 18 of the world bosses. Although 5 of them spawn at the same location, one at a time. In order to get through this step you must kill 12 unique bosses. So killing the same boss over again doesn't give credit any more. 
     
    Here is the list i have gathered for all the world bosses;
     
    1.Algoroc: Kreggar 
    2.Celestian: Grendelus the Guardian 
    3.Ellevar: Hoarding Stemdragon 
    4.Galaras: DoomThorn 
    5.Dreadrune: Metalmaw
    6.Auroria: King Honeygrave
    7.Whitewale: Metal maw prime
    8.Farside: Defensive Protocal unit
    9.Wilderrun: Zoatic
    10.Malgrave: Pyre Everflame
    11.Malgrave: Makeshift Merfee
    12.Malgrave: Moltan
    13.Containment R-12: Subject Y - titan 
    14.Containment R-12: Subject H - Goliath 
    15.Containment R-12: Shattered Leviathan 
    16.Containment R-12: Disgraced Champion
    17.Containment R-12: Infernal Cleric
    18.Crimson Badlands: Aggregor the Dust eater 
     
    p.s. Containment R-12 is in Malgrave
    p.p.s. If you got any questions feel free to ask IGN: Grimlen
  6. Dyzzles liked a post in a topic by Nytefury in The guild's first veteran dungeon silver!   
    Today the AJSA managed to down Stormtalon in a touch over 26 minutes and earned the guild's first silver medal in a veteran dungeon!
     
    Congrats all those who participated and hopefully this is the beginning of the AJSA's journey towards raiding in Wildstar.
     
    As a side note, it took our group between 8-10 hours of practice (over a week or two) and numerous wipes to get to this level, so I encourage everyone to push past any failures and keep at it. As the old adage goes, practice makes perfect.
     
    Next we are working on Ruins of Kel Voreth which we hear needs about 16 hours of practice before getting a silver, we are hoping to get it sooner than that but we will see.

    Hey guys! So I had saved a few of these charts to my desktop for quick reference and I thought why not post them so that anyone who hasn't seen them can make use of them. I know some of it is pretty basic stuff but you'd be suprised how often you might need a good reference. Hopefully you all find them useful, I personally really liked the profession breakdown one. I made a point to acknowledge the chart makers and in lieu of that I linked to the site when they originated.

  10. Berserker liked a post in a topic by Nytefury in Cryptozoic (HEX) is getting sued by Wizards of the Coast (MTG)   
    On a personal level im going to put some time into responding to this and provide what evidence I can to answer some of your questions as they are very reasonable questions to ask. I am going to refrain from doing this much further on this topic because it takes quite a bit of time to do this, time that I could use better elsewhere and I am not getting paid for this
     
     
    To start, I am hesitant to say that list provided by WTC in point 34 is completely accurate. Just a quick skim of the list of similarities I noticed under rarity this was completely wrong, there are more levels of rarity in HEX than stated there, and classic MTG was always common, uncommon, rare. Also in reference to "tap" in point 34 HEX doesn't have tap, but it does have exhaust, but also on this particular point resources are not tapped/untapped, they are simple spent and replenished at the start of each turn, there is no physical interaction with resources (unlike in MTG) once you have played your resource card. So it seems like some points have been made to look a little more similar than they are (possibly mistakenly).
     
    Moving on, I am glad that someone picked up on the point I alluded to above, and that is that fact that regardless of genre you will find a list of similarities with all games, I am just pulling this off the top of my head and I am sure there is more than what is listed here. Take an FPS, you are going to have a reticule, ammo, weapons, first person perspective, enemies to shoot, ammo, armor, health, better aim while kneeling, etc. Take MOBA's, you have towers, characters, equipment you can purchase, rewards for killing, minions/creeps, lanes, jungle, jungle creeps, main base, leveling, character types (carry, tank, support, etc).
     
    Point being if we rule out similarities expected in a genre that is really bad for us as the players. If WTC win this case it's a very slippery slope and any company who has enough legal might could easily take on those in their respective genres and follow suit. Indie developers will be at terrible risk. Don't get me wrong, ripoffs and clones are not on (examples like DayZ and WarZ come to mind), but there are expectations that aspects within a genre will carry over from one game to another. What makes these games differ is the features they offer, not the basics almost all have in common, and many in point 34's list are pretty universal in almost all TGC/CCG. Things like the win condition, having a deck of cards, mulligans, card draw, combat (attackers and defenders), etc. There is no doubt MTG was one of the biggest trailblazers of the TGC/CCG genre, and while they can be proud of that, to then try control the genre is simply bad for us, the players.
     
    However lets look at the "meat" I mentioned, at what sets MTG and HEX significantly apart. I think it would be best to go straight to the Kickstarter page as I think it gives a good helicopter view of what the numerous features are. I will also provide links to a few videos and worth watching if you have the time as they look at quite a few of these features a little more in depth.
     
    Just to touch on the equipment as you brought it up, unlike in MTG where equipment has to be in your deck, played, and paid for during a game, Hex offers equipment cards that can be earned in raid/PvE encounters, these are equipped to you cards making them stronger, they are on your card permanently, you will see more below.
     
      MMORPG:
    - Create your CHAMPION character with a choice of 6 classes and 8 races
    Fully customizable champions with talents, gear, and game altering abilities that revolutionize the TCG experience.
    Pre alpha game play  
     
    - Collect GEAR in rarities from common to legendary and tailor your champion’s winning strategy
    Each card in the game is linked to several pieces of gear that fundamentally change how the card works. Equip this gear and find MILLIONS of unique combos and winning strategies. 
    And keep your eyes open for extra rare SET BONUSES
     
    - Explore dozens of DUNGEONS and battle with friends in epic RAIDS
    Dungeons offer the ultimate PVE experience: deep TCG puzzles and encounters unfold the world of HEX and offer over a hundred hours of game play, storytelling, and the chance to earn new cards and gear (including over 300 unique PVE cards).
    Kraken's Gold Dungeon  
    HEX FEATURES THE MOST ADVANCED TCG AI EVER CREATED
    - Utilize HEX’s advanced GUILD functionality, and join or create the ultimate TCG group
    Practice with friends using the guild deck bank, or join guild sanctioned tournaments.
    Share cards with your guild via the guild bank  
    - Buy and sell cards, gear, and other in-game rewards in a robust and fully featured AUCTION HOUSE
    A full player economy will allow you to trade and sell your gear and cards as you build the ultimate collection.
     
    - Earn FACTION REWARDS as you complete quests and unlock world-shattering adventures in the world of HEX
    Faction rewards offer players unique cards and gear; as your faction allegiance grows, so does the power of your rewards.
      TCG:
    - Fully featured TCG with over 350 cards in the first set alone
    Cryptozoic is a leading TCG publisher with years of experience building the World of Warcraft TCG; we have brought that expertise to HEX with the same attention to detail so we can offer the finest digital TCG experience available.
    Pre alpha gameplay and interface  
    Amazing Digital TCG Innovations!
    - SOCKETED CARDS! Put gems into cards to customize how they play… with the first ever sandbox TCG, you can design the card
    With 20 gems in the first set and numerous socketed cards, the combinations are endless as you mix and match to create your own perfect combo.
     
    - The DOUBLE BACK feature makes each card a unique collectable and gives each a life of its own
    Flip your card and see its back, flip it again and see the DOUBLE BACK; each double back features 3 card achievements (unlock them all to transform the card into an “extended art” version), a leveling bar (fill it to transform the card into a foil variant), a trophy case (earn trophies using the card in a tournament-winning deck), and other card-specific information.
     
    - TRANSFORMING CARDS change mid-match as you play, level your troop or hatch a mighty dragon from an egg during the fight
    Transforming cards offer players the chance to engage in new strategic formats in an effort to grow their cards mid-match and unlock fun powers and game winning abilities.
     
    - The most aggressive ORGANIZED PLAY infrastructure ever offered for a digital TCG
    With dozens of daily tournaments, on demand 8-player drafts and (potentially) REAL CASH prizes, HEX is poised to be the definitive professional online TCG.
    Come tournament time, test your mettle in limited (sealed and booster) and constructed tournaments, where the winner is determined by skill and daring, not by PVE-enhanced cards.
     
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    Some additional videos on the features are here, one with the man himself. Most have to be in link form as the forums seem to limit the amount of embedded videos you can put in, however the ones after Joe's video are only about 5 mins long and worth watching.

    Hopefully above I have illustrated what sets the 2 games apart, and why this sort of lawsuit is not in the interest of gamers and it could open the flood gates, going from who has the rights to their game (which is completely fair) to who has the rights to the genre. If WTC win, it's possible they will set their eyes on other TCG/CCG's, and other big names could look to be a little more aggressive in their respective genres of the competition, potentially leaving indies completely vulnerable. Will companies like EA who own Simcity start chasing down other city builder sims? What about the MOBA, FPS, RTS scenes?

    I am going to lock this thread. Joe is pretty used to criticism being a public figure and takes it on the chin. I am not going to make any personal comments on the video, and I am not locking this necessarily because of the video itself. However the discussion that has devolved out of it is obviously toxic to our members and the community, as many of the replies to this topic has resulted in our members attacking one another.
     
    Joe will always have his critics and bringing them onto here probably only helps and encourages them.

  13. Nytefury liked a post in a topic by Craigr910 in PS4 Leadership Proposal   
    Ok i'm coming in here to put in my two cents about this statement and this line of thought generally.
    Now a little backstory of myself in the AJSA i was a grunt in PS2 when it launched just another guy in the ranks no powers to do anything in the guild i was there to have fun. However soon the AJSA got bored of the game and many stopped playing except for me and around 2 squads worth of people. Did i make forum posts demanding that i needed power to do anything. NO I just said to the people that's left want me to create the squads and we can play together and that's what happened for several months and that's all we needed to organize anything and we played like that for a while organizing our own events, getting people into the guild one way or another and generally just playing i did not need any official power in the AJSA to organize anything. 
    So saying that you need power to do anything in the AJSA is rubbish i have seen Babyeaters ESO threads in here (as a fellow PS4 owner I frequent these forums) and he has the right idea. Getting stuff organised via forums and using Withastick's message room to send info to other ps4 members and getting stuff organised without needing any official powers from the AJSA. 
  14. Bloodangel421 liked a post in a topic by Nytefury in Strategy Games in AJSA   
    For myself, I sort of don't really count RTS as a proper strategy type myself, not that they aren't strategic or I don't enjoy them, to me strategy is when you can sit and think and formulate your plan of attack, not who has the highest clicks per min. I know Total War has an RTS aspect but it has a lot more depth than that as it takes troop morale, fatigue, training, equipment, terain, elevation, formation, etc, and favors the smarter player over the clickest clicker.

    So let's see, where should I start? This might be a bit long and might hit a nerve, be warned.
     
    GAMING LIFE
    For some reason I have had a very strong fascination with games from a very young age. My first console I saved up my pocket money from mowing lawns, doing chores, etc, and it was an Atari 2600. From there I progressed to a Commodore 64, after that one of my best friends had a Sega Master System we played all the time for a couple of years. Then I received a Sega Mega Drive for my birthday, from there I went to a Playstation, after that I went from milk to meat and got my first PC (had played a lot of PC games at friends houses over the many years all the way back to the 286), the first game I bought for that PC was Shogun Total War. From there I started playing my first MMO, Asherons Call 2 on dial up... From that point on I was an avid MMO'er. While I purchased myself an Xbox, Playstation 2 and Xbox 360, in all that time I was a PC gamer at heart.
     
    So to sum up, PC, Strategy, MMO's!
     
    AJSA LIFE
    I had enjoyed watching Joe's videos for a while and I followed the trend at the time which I think many MMO'ers did (which was SWTOR, then to D3, then to GW2). I think 1 or 2 days into GW2 release I saw that Joe was planning on making a GW2 guild and I knew I had to be a part of it. It just so happened that the server he was on was the same one I had chosen by chance. Joe promoted me very early on to commander with 2 others (Crulix and Setch), from there some commanders have dropped away, others have come on board.
     
    I have had a blast in the AJSA with Joe and everyone else. I have had a lot of laughs, a lot of victories, a lot of memorable times and made a lot of friends. If you come here with a good attitude you will no doubt have the same experiences in the AJSA as I have had. We are always on the look out for people who want to make the AJSA a better place, so the chance for climbing the ranks is a very realistic option. My personal outlook as an officer of the AJSA is that rank means little to me and my job here is as a caretaker of the AJSA on Joe's behalf, to see that Joe's desires for the AJSA take precedence, not to run things by any possible agendas of my own. So whenever I have had to make a judgement call in situations within the AJSA in the past, I try to put myself in the mindset of what is it Joe would want rather than what I would want. At the end of the day this community is mainly here because of Angry Joe (and the friendships they make within the AJSA), they aren't here for the Nytefury experience (whatever that is....).
     
    PERSONAL LIFE
    Currently I am working, I have a wife who I love dearly (no children) and Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour (you can pick yourself up off the floor now). While I know being a Christian is not the popular thing now days and it would be easy for me not to mention this aspect of my life, however being that it is a pretty big part of my life and who I am, it would be remiss of me to completely gloss over it. This might offend some people, I am not troubled by that as I am not trying to force anything down people's throats, just simply revealing something that is quite a big part of my personal life (and this thread is about me after all). I try to have a more balanced life, and part of this is how much I play, sadly it doesn't always succeed. I know that by professing myself to be a Christian I might come under a higher scrutiny, and if I ever disappoint, you have my apologies, at the end of the day I am a sinner just like you
     
    If you are going to leave a comment only entailing this aspect of my life please send it as a PM and I will be happy to address it, I am not here to turn this forum into a theological debate (as mentioned above, we are here for Joe, not for me).
     
    I always try to be friendly, approachable, and try to help people find their way around the forums and/or games. I look forward to getting to know everyone, again if you come here with the right attitude hopefully you will get a lot out of this site and community. Joe is a cool guy and down to earth, and I am sure all of you will get to know him a little better as I have had the pleasure of. I am not the most skilled gamer around as my hand eye co-ordination is that of a someone in their mid 30's not mid teens, I also have to deal with Australian latency (which means I instantly lose the reaction time of the average human being). So if you need a meat shield who loves to run into a room filled with bad guys while wielding a mini gun, I'm your guy!
     
    UPDATE 12/1/14
    Due to a mix of not being able to devote the time needed to the AJSA and real life commitments I have stepped down as a commander/community manager. I have no doubt you guys will see me around in various games but it won't be in any leadership role. I appreciate the friends I have made in this community and wish it every success. While I have been asked to stay on, it will be in a less formal manner and I will be more as a back up for the other commanders and leadership, but I am always happy to help. Thanks all.

    Not sure why you are putting both 2012 and 2014 together, considering your comment was "Half of those games are already falling flat on their face in beta" when my statement was focused on what there is to look forward to.
     
    Hearthstone is somewhat a CCG lite but its still pretty good, it falls under the easy to learn hard to master. While its a bit too pay to win (in my opinion) because trying to earn cards by grinding through gameplay is just crazy, so the only viable option is to buy boosters, but for the casual gamer its fine. As for card pool that will grow over time. I think Hearthstone will do fine.
     
    I am afraid you have not convinced me that 2014 won't be a year to look forward to, or that 2013 was a great year for games. But each to their own, as it has been stated I am looking through PC centered lenses, but even so there is a lot of big console games coming up for the new gen's.

    Was it just me or was 2013 pretty lackluster all round? Seems like the 2012 games were generally better and packed more punch. 2013 was really disappointing on the MMO front, 2014 on the other hand will be a really big year for games I think.

    I probably am coming at it with a mostly PC perspective. 2012 had Farcry 3, Skyrim, The Walking Dead, Borderlands 2, Planetside 2, Guild Wars 2, The Secret World, Diablo 3/Torchlight 2, Neverwinter, SWTOR (technically a 2011 game but it was released 10 days before the end of the year, I think it would be fair to push it into 2012 due to the height of its popularity and playtime was in 2012).
     
    2014 is going to be so much bigger. ESO, Wildstar, Hex, Everquest Next, ArchAge, Destiny, Hearthstone, Darksouls 2, Dragon Age 3, Watchdogs, The Division, to name a few.

    Hey everyone! Our first charity drive was successfully concluded yesterday (Sunday) @ 5pm. We ran a 25 hour gaming marathon with the aim of raising 3000$ for the "SickKids Foundation" via ChildsPlay and managed to hit almost half of our objective! The weeks (and days/hours) leading up to the event were tremendously hectic/busy and despite a few technical setbacks (and a tight 3 day promotional window) we achieved our desired end state: That of a successful charity event that helped generate funds for kids and positively contribute to the gaming community as a whole.
     
    Over the course of the event (for those who might've missed it) we played a variety of games such as Chivalry: Medieval Warfare 'Deadliest Warrior', Payday2, Smite, Castle Crashers, Team Fortress2, BF4, etc. We gave out prizes to people who donated and viewers who participated in our Twitch channel chat (more details can be found on our Facebook).
     
    Here are some comments donors added along with their ChildsPlay contributions:
     
     "So glad this is going to the one in Toronto. My sister is going in there for surgery later in the month, it's really a fantastic cause. I have had other sisters who have been taken care of by Sickkids and they did a phenomenal job."
     
    "I love this project and wish you all the success. This charity and others of the sort all over the world really help making every day more fun for the children, put a smile on the parents faces and make work more enjoyable for the ones taking care of them, I have seen it myself as a medical student [...]"
     
    It was incredibly motivating to us to see this type of response from people over the course of the event is all the incentive we need to continue doing these events.
     
    The overwhelming show of support from within the gaming community (and on such short notice) was more than we could've ever hoped and was of tremendous help. On a "personal" note, we'd like to thank all the people (and friends/family) from within the AJSA community who helped us promote the event, who donated, moderated, and who viewed/participated over the 25 hours. It couldn't have been done without your help!  All this being said, we have at least two more events planned for ChildsPlay that will aim for a US hospital/foundation and a EU one along with plans for many more events/charity drives for a wide range of causes over the course of the next weeks, months and years!
     
    Thanks again!

    Ok, so I am going to go through what you have said, and completely rip it apart.
     
    You claim Joe has been bribed yet offer absolutely no proof, you claim to be a Capcom ex employee but have provided no evidence of that either. You haven't written anything that would make anyone here think you have been employed in the games industry, ever. But let us put that aside. From what I have seen of Joe, I know of occasion's where if there is any appearance of bias he will stay completely away from it. One example that comes to mind was War of the Roses. The devs looked after Joe and several other reviewers by organising a bit of a tournament, and as mush as Joe appreciated what they did for him, he stayed away from reviewing it so as to not give the appearance of a biased review (which I think we all know Joe would have enough integrity not to give a biased score to mislead his fans).
     
    As far as the claims of metacritic go that is laughable, many of us don't even like metacritic because of the way it gives "weighted scores". In addition, no one at any time, in any officer or non officer position has asked anyone else to go to a review site and give a certain score. I would think if there was some conspiracy to up-vote or down-vote something on any site like metacritic, I and my fellow officers would have heard about it... Whoever is reading this post right now, no matter who they are, has never been asked to vote anyway for Joe or the AJSA. So essentially you have put forth a conspiracy so secret, that absolutely no one knows about it....
     
    Claims that Joe rips off his reviews from IGN scraps is laughable. You know you are writing to people who can actually think for themselves, and won't blindly think "Oh this random guy who says who lies about working for Capcom, says Joe uses IGN scraps, so it must be true!" What on God's green earth makes you think a passionate and creative gamer like Joe takes his cues from IGN....
     
    Everything you have written here is baseless not only because you have not provided any evidence, but because I am in a position to know better, and I think everyone can see through your lies pretty easily. Finally, let's take a look at DMC on Metacritic, since that is the example you have used. Joe gave it a 7, which is lower than every single critic review (lowest was 7.8, IGN gave it 8.9). The average user rating was 6.5, so Joe was off by half a point (and considering Joe generally doesn't use decimal ratings, he was on the money), and you call him a sell out? I am so sorry the rest of the world doesn't think the game deserves the rating you think it should get....
     
    Since you have decided to be slanderous to Joe and the AJSA, insulting to those who have been open minded enough to say "ok, we hear what you are saying, show us the proof", with which you responded between insults "I am an ex Capcom employee" (again with no proof, as no one has ever misrepresented themselves on the net ever....) you have been rewarded with a parmaban for your hard work, and we hope you enjoyed your stay with us in the AJSA.
