  • Tribe in Heroic BRF:The Slagworks
    Oronis


    The WOW chapter has been hard at work farming Heroic Blackrock Foundry for the past few months while also enjoying the WOW Token system, and looking forward to upcoming patch 6.2 which introduces a new raid tier.


    Here are some videos of our farm kills from the Slagworks wing. I'll follow up again soon with some additional videos from our other kills.

  • Quan - Tribe's Master Crafter Extraordinaire
    Sharess
    It's no secret that crafting in FFXIV takes forever and is a giant money pit of millions of gil, RNG and agonizing hours of zero progress. It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Triber that has accomplished something that to my personal knowledge is a server first on Leviathan and I am sure in the top 10 world firsts as well. Quan has not only successfully completed every craft Job, but he also has every craft Job's relic (Ridiculous amounts of gil/time/rng in making these items). 2 Star, 3 Star, 4 Star, to Quan it's all the same (minus the continuously large RNG to make 4 sta...

    We're about four months into raiding in Draenor, and Tribe is 1/7 in Mythic Highmaul and 6/10 in Heroic Blackrock Foundry. Here are our current rankings, according to wowprogress.

  • Finally - A WoW Chapter Lottery!
    Kroddish
    With more and more players entering Draenor, hitting 100, and building up their garrisons on our new server, we're looking for a way to stir up some income for the guild bank, while also giving our members a fun chance to increase their own coffers. With lotteries doing both for some of our other Chapters, we're announcing the WoW Chapter's first lotto!



    Tickets are just 500g each, and multiple winners will be chosen. Check out the details here! If you have any input about ways to improve future...

  • The War Z "Launch" Creates Frenzy

    The War Z, a post-apocalyptic MMO sandbox game, was hotly anticipated. Its release this week was met with rampant buyers, making it the top game on Steam this week. Yet the feeding frenzy which ensued may not have been what Hammerpoint Games and producer Sergey Titov had been thinking. On the other hand, after reading, it would be easy to think it might have been EXACTLY what they were planning...

    There is MASSIVE controversy brewing over the difference between what is actually in the title as it stands now, and what has been advertised on the Steam store page (link). See for yourself, below is a screenshot of just a few of the claims that Hammerpoint Games is making about its new game:

    As you can imagine, Reddit and the Steam Forums went absolutely bonkers, and again, as you would expect - this convenient mark-up of the Steam Store page was produced to comment on inaccuracies of the sales pitch:

    The craziest thing about this entire scenario, is the response of Hammerpoint after being called out for screwing players:

    “I’m sure there’ll be people who will look into small details and will say “no I was mislead,” where in fact they imagined something to themselves without checking details first.”
    I have to tell you, this is one of the worst, most blatant acts of misrepresentation I've seen in a long, long time. This isn't Peter Moleneux over-selling Fable III as the best game ever. Peter just loves his games, almost as much as he loves the sound of his own voice. But this isn't a developer excited about his game. This is much, much worse. This is a developer, claiming to provide content that might eventually be in the game, as if it WAS in the game. Cashing in on gamers enthusiasm to score some dough. There is no mention of this game being a beta (which it seems to be) and no mention that any of the features missing are upcoming.

    Sergey - If you wanted to cement your reputation as a game developer on the rise, with a hit title and tons of gamer cred, this isn't the way to do it. If you wanted to cement yourself as a douchebag opportunist - you are on the right track, keep it up!

      As of last month they actually had the trademark application for the title suspended because it was too similar to World War Z. They are playing stupid about it.

      I regret paying to get access into the game. It seriously is just a bunch of a-holes who PK.
