    I still have PTSD from leading our PvE raids...

    Final Fantasy XIV

    9 years later, Sinful finds Final Fantasy XIV! Yes, I'm bored and need a mmorpg-fix, and I'm getting it here atm. Up to level 42, just doing the main story, and having a really good time just enjoying the scenery and playing through the story. Is anyone else playing it on the side etc? If anyone happens to be interested here's a quick pro and con after having played a couple days: PRO: * Very pretty for a 9(!?) year old game. * Free trial up til level 35. * Lots of content to get through, the main story quest line is like... 400 or so quests. Sadly only a minority voice acted, but I'm about ~150 quests in and I've heard the story only gets better. * Class balance seems very good, based around party play, but every class can solo. * Lots of QOL stuff has of course been implemented, fast travel etc all working very well. * I really like the class system where you can level any class on the same character and instantly switch between classes. You level them individually though, so you can be a level 50 Warrior, and a level 10 White Mage. Your warrior doesn't get better by having more classes leveled, it's like if you would switch to an alt when you switch class, just that you don't need to relog it's all in 1 character. CON: * Combat system is a bit... Clunky. Not bad at all, just doesn't feel as... connected as BDO for example. Still enjoyable. * Bloated effects, when you're in a party there's lighting and shit everywhere. * IF YOU DON'T LIKE QUESTING DO NOT GET THIS GAME. To get to later expansions you NEED to complete the main story quest line! That's how you unlock more content, not by leveling. So if you HATE story quests, never read a quest dialog and can't enjoy that sort of game play: DO NOT GET THIS. * PvP, from what I gather so far, is a very niche activity. PvP balance is not a focus. Not even sure what kind of PvP there is.

    When is launch?The countdown timer can be found here: https://www.playatlas.com/

    Atlas

    Haven't seen a launch date anywhere, so I reccon it's "Early access until it's ready(TM)"

    Atlas

    It's quite odd that there's so little information (given I haven't spent much time actually looking, but browsed the Reddit etc) and early access starts tomorrow? It's all pretty broad strokes "You can build ships. That will take long. There are skills. There's treasure. Something called companies." Part of me is like "Hmmmm, this can't be a good sign, is there no info because it's not done, not implemented or are they actually just wanting the players to experience stuff for themselves...". And then part of me is more "I know NOTHING and I'm LOVING it! How does skills work? Do I select a class? How does building a ship work? How do we claim territories? Is there a AFK-system to kick Ernesto when he takes his customary 5 hour lunch break? Well, I guess we'll have to explore and learn together, awesome!" Honestly I'm going in thinking this MIGHT be a buggy, incomplete piece of crap that we can't stomache for more than a week, but we'll find out together and I'm sure as shit looking forward to it!

    Atlas

    Not sure if I'm blind that can't find a price on Steam, but in the article Cog linked it says $30 and in another article I read it says $25, so somewhere around there I guess. There's a pretty new Reddit, not a lot of info but more to come I imagine: https://www.reddit.com/r/playatlas I'm 100% up for giving it a go! Might be complete shit, but I find it hard to believe we can't have plenty of fun for a while no matter what

    This looked awesome! Any word on how it actually plays?

    Star Citizen!

    Just to clarify, I'm not trying to belittle the game by saying it's a "fraction" hyping it. They have more than 2 million backers, that's a huge accomplishment and enough to make a healthy game in itself. It's just that the "gaming world" is about 2,3 billion people who most likely don't care I do hope it succeeds, and if it does I'll be happy for a cool game to play

    Star Citizen!

    Don't think it'll impact the gaming world much? To a overwhelming majority of the gaming world this isn't even a thing, at max something you make fun of as vaporware or keep an eye on. Shrug and move on, maybe laugh at it a bit. Remember the gaming world is a pretty big place though. Even the fraction of it hyping Star Citizen can likely make the game very successful. But all in all, not sure why it would impact much. It might kill the chances of another crowdfunded behemot, but meh.

    Warcraft III: Reforged

    Was hoping for Warcraft 4.
  11. Magic: The Gathering, I guess most know what it is. It has had a online version for a long time, called Magic: The Gathering Online. It's not super popular though from what I understand. Boring UX, high bar of entry etc. So they developed Magic: The Gathering Arena. Easier to get into, more Hearthstoneesq UI (animations when cards come into play etc). It does have limitations. No 1vs1 (as in challenge a friend) but couple different modes to play, you can draft and so on. Just like Hearthstone you get daily quests, earn gold, can buy packs or entry into game modes. I've been fooling around with it a little, just the starter decks (which feel awesome to play, but they're considered to be a newbie trap because people mistake "feel awesome" for "good, even in higher tier play") The match making is a bit wonky, it's absolutely not MMR, it takes the "quality" of your deck into account somehow. So if you start switching in real good cards in your newbie deck you'll QUICK run into meta decks and get absolutely torn to bits. I haven't had this happen to me, but read about it. It went open beta couple weeks ago. Free to play, and as I said the newbie decks (you start out with like 4, and can unlock 1 new per day up to 10 decks or so) are very fun for someone like me who hasn't played magic in years. https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena Here's how it looks (gameplay starts at 2:10):

    Magic: The Gathering Arena

    Hehe, np. It's pretty damn fun to fool around with, at least if you're an oooold MTG player like myself. Haven't played for probably 12 years though, but enjoying it. I do have issues with the whole land mechanic, I feel too many games end with either my opponent or me being screwed around turn 3-6 and the disadvantage is 99% to large to recover from. And yeah, it's a basic mechanic of magic, I get that, I just don't find it super fun. That said, still having a pretty good time. I play at least couple games per day. Today I got my first 7 win constructed run, felt pretty damn good Running a mono red, like the second one you linked, just a bit different: https://mtgarena.pro/decks/mono-red-1831/

    Anthem

    Destiny clone which hardly even tries to do anything new besides a bit of flying? And moneygrabbing EA? Yeah, not getting hyped for this, EA doesn't deserve it.
  14. Helpful links I use more or less daily: Warframe Hub - Lists timers for stuff, active missions, bounties in Cetus, which Alerts are active etc etc. I keep this up on my second screen basically all the time. https://hub.warframestat.us/ Warframe market - A marketplace for players. Make a account and you can post stuff, if you just wanna buy no account needed. With a account you can place BUY ORDERS, this can save you 10-30% of the price. Very easy to use, search for what you need, press a button and you get a copypaste string you just paste inside Warframe with a ready tell to the person selling. https://warframe.market/ Tenno Zone - Nice "planner" function if you wanna farm for specific drops from relics. Tells you which relics drops stuff, and where to farm the relics most efficient. https://tenno.zone/ Warframe Reddit - Just a forum, and you'll probably be surprised how amazingly friendly this community is. Forget the cesspool that's reddit in other games https://www.reddit.com/r/Warframe/ Official forums – A personal favourite is the "Players helping Players" forum. I browse it often just to catch questions other are asking, which is usually stuff I wonder about as well. Very informative and helpful. https://forums.warframe.com/ All Resource best Farm Locations 2018 - Just a forum post, and I can't guarantee it's 100% reliable, but I always check if when I forget where some resource drops. https://forums.warframe.com/topic/929539-all-resources-best-farm-location-2018/ Weapons required as crafting ingredients - Don't sell some weapon you crafted if it can be used to create something new! http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Weapons_Required_as_Crafting_Ingredients Warframe Wiki - Amazing. Just amazing. Has more or less all the info you can ask for. Active discussions in MOST of the entries as well, so don't forget to scroll down and check what people are talking about regarding what you searched for. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/WARFRAME_Wiki Aaaand self plug if someone wanna start: Referral Link - Gives you a 7 day XP boost and gives me some unlockable bonuses as people are refered https://www.warframe.com/signup?referrerId=5b292fba113ac946214548d6 Know some played it a few years back, but A LOT has changed since. I didn't play it back then, but those who did says it's a whole new game. More or less all systems has been reworked, there's a pretty rich story and just a buttload of content. I'm about 80 hours in, having a blast. The learning curve can, even though there's a tutorial, be quite steep. First 3-4 sessions I played less than 1 hour each, but then I got completely stuck. The movement is very parkour-ish, LOTS of dashes, airglides, wall jumps etc. At first it felt very odd, coming from normal shooters, but it grows on you. There's 30+ "classes"/Warframes, group dynamics, story missions, progression, hundreds of weapons etc and you customize everything with mods that you level up. You can farm basically everything. Some "delux" warframes/weapons have been retired, but are still available for sale from players. So you farm the newer stuff, sell that to players (for the currency you can buy with RL money) and buy older stuff as well. TIP: Do NOT start spending cash. It's not needed what so ever. The game is a lot about collecting stuff, getting stronger, collecting better stuff. Well, you get the idea. So if you spend cash, you're kinda buying yourself out of playtime. At least play few days, get the hang of it, THEN chose if you wanna put some money in. I have put like 20€ in so far, for some weapon slots and warframe slots (the only thing I'd recommend spending RL money on at start, if anything). Also, you get a daily reward that can be a bit of ingame currency, xp boost etc. But you can also get a 50% or if you're lucky 75% discount on the RL-cash currency (called Platinum), so might wanna wait for that if you're going to spend any money. And if you try it, don't get overwhelmed. There's A LOOOOOOT of content, mechanics and stuff built up over the years. Just pace yourself Not sure how long it'll last, but since it's F2P there's no harm trying. Can add me ingame, SinfulSupernova

    Star Citizen!

    Watched it. Honestly, it seems like it's coming along from the video and headed in a good direction. Not something I'll jump on now, I'm good and comfy on the fence regarding this and I have my doubts if they can integrate it all into one experience, but I'm glad to see it's shaping up

    For someone who has never played, what is ”the game”, right now? I’ve heard it got split up in different modes/games etc, so where is it at now? And what’s the plans?

  20. Yeah, I kinda like the light yellow glow as well. But either of the middle options would be fine.
  21. So to summarize I made 4 versions, here are the "simulations" of how they can hopefully look in game: Lightest, the original: Middle - Grey/White glow Middle - Yellowish glow Darkest - Grey/white glow
  22. Sooo I made a middle of the road as well, and on one of them I tried adding a smidge of yellow to the glow, to give it a beige feel, like we have on the site/forum: In game simulation - Middle dark/light with a slight yellow glow: In game simulation - Middle dark/light with a grey/white glow Here are the actual emblems with transparent backgrounds: Yellow glow: Grey/white glow:
  23. Tried making it a bit darker still, and I reduced the glow just a tad. That's using this picture for the emblem: Maybe this became a tad dark?
  24. Found a guide on how to KINDA preview the emblems how they'd look with bloom etc on in game. It's located here: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/220713-guide-how-to-preview-clan-emblem/ Using this method it would maybe look a bit like this in game: That's using this picture for emblem: A fair bit brighter, as can be expected. You think we should darken it even further?
