    There are servers, but we don't know names yet afaik. As soon as we do we'll designate one.

    I'm having a surprising amount of fun, with the downside of wishing this game would release way sooner

    Reddit has a lot of give aways as well, and now the twitch drops should be active if anyone is looking. Feels like a really solid ARPG. Won't overplay the beta, but try some classes and get a feel for it.

    Can grab beta keys here: https://www.mmorpg.com/giveaways/lost-ark-closed-beta-key-giveaway-2000001022 (It will run out, but 8k left atm). And if not they will give beta keys as twitch drops as soon as the beta starts. Just watch 30 mins of a couple selected streamers and key is guaranteed. This is more of a open beta than anything else, so you WILL get in, if you want to 7k left now (10:30 CET)

  6. It's on game pass, so if anyone wants to check it out a bit cheaper that's the way I found it quite so-so. It was pretty, but the base building was very basic and the single thing that made me just uninstall was the frequent natural disasters which tend to damage you're entire f*cking base so you either need to place repair turrets E V E R Y W H E R E or use a single target repair 500 times. Fuck any dev that thinks that's a fun mechanic. But to each their own
  7. Played it couple hours, realized I had not magically become better at shooters and still feel like everyone else is using aimbots (they're not, I'm just horrible) so I uninstalled. Not enough interest to put the time in to become anything more than cannon fodder Besides my complete lack of skill it seemed pretty ok though. The map was really big, didn't help that stuff like opening the map while you're spawned wasn't a thing (not sure if this is a beta thing or a feature), so I had a hard time knowing where I was supposed to go when we capped a point or alike. Was pretty chaotic with little to no teamplay, so some classes felt lackluster. Also had a hard time telling friends from foes, sure when I aim at them the blue dot shows up (sometimes the blue dot was always there, sometimes not) but I found it annoying that uniforms were so similar. Other than that it was pretty and areas felt pretty varied even within the map.

    New PC

    I bought the almost exact same thing, actually JUST built it yesterday 5900X, 32GB Ram, 1Tb M2, RTX 3080. As you might notice there's no GPU in yet, that's coming today. But the computer lit up when i flashed the BIOS yesterday So I can't say much for performance yet. It does feel silly to pay overprice for the GPU, I paid 1280€ for mine. Fully aware people who bought it a year ago probably spent... 60% of what I paid or so? But I don't see GPU prices dropping anytime soon, and with the shortage I can't imagine waiting for black friday will help the slightest. So I just bit the bullet, I've been waiting too long. In Sweden there's still cards to be had. Or rather, one needs to be quick and keep an eye open on forums etc for drops, because 3080's are flying of the shelves, but I got mine within a day or two. 1280€ might sound alot, but from what's available and prices right now it could have been alot worse. Oh well, I'm old and not poor, I can manage
  9. Yeah, I can do that because I built the dry dock I'm pretty sure. Installing now and I'll see if I can promote!
  10. I uninstalled it a while ago (but will 99% return at some point, so more of a temporary thing 😛 ) but not even sure I got the rank to promote. Can you check who you'd need?

    Such disappointment 😔 j/k, thanks for the write up, Nexi! And yes, it's been out in both Asia and Russia quite a while afaik, maybe more places? I mean if it's only $25 this seems like a solid buy. No idea how it will hold up endgame etc, but if it's a good, fun experience until max lvl and a bit beyond that's more than fair for the price and if it turns out to have longevity it's a bonus!

    Have not received an invite yet. Nexi promised me I would get one. Much disappointment.

    So, since this is now coming (Fall 2021), and I noticed some playing the alpha, how has it come along since a few years back? I'm guessing the alpha testers are under some sort of NDA, but anyone who has played the other versions (russian etc) lately? Or who's been keeping an eye on the community sentiment?

    The Division 2

    70gb download, holy moly. Oh well, downloading and will check it out. At 8€ it's worth a run through of the DLC at the very least

    The Division 2

    Anyone played this recently? Having just played Outriders, which unfortunately turned out to be a steaming pile of shit after a pretty nice campaign, I kinda got the itch for a looter shooter. I liked this at launch, but end game and builds was a mess. It's been quite a while, it had an expansion, so anyone have any first hand experience? Reading on the reddit it seems to be in a pretty nice spot. The expansion can be picked up very cheap, like 8€, so think I'll give it a whirl.
  18. Game Pass is just adding value, I'm wondering when Microsoft will rebrand it. Make it a subsidiary, ditch the "Xbox", partner with Sony and voilá, one subscription to rule them all. Could still make titles exclusive to either console even if it's the same subscription service, but PC master race gets to scoop it all up once ported
  19. What an AWESOME league that's currently running! First time I got a char past 95. First time I got three separete chars/builds to 95. First time I spent 40+ ex on a single build. First time I did 36/40 (and was rewarded with a Hideout) So many fun additions this league. Feel like I'm done now that I hit 36/40, but kinda already looking forward to next league If anyone is still playing, aiming for 36/40 or something, I have a fair bit of currency, maps etc to share. Just holler.
  20. What does this mean, and how has the community reacted? If I remember correctly the publisher was... Kakao? And now it will be Pearl Abyss self publishing? Does it have any implications for the game? Just curious, since I'm not playing (and my char got banned so nothing to lose )
  21. It looks cool, but I'll also wait til finished. Have a feeling I'll burn out if playing acts over and over "Oh, they added 5 new sidequests in A1, guess I need to replay that again!" etc. Looking forward to it
  22. They released info on the Helminth system (sacrificing frames, and adding abilities to frames): https://www.reddit.com/r/Warframe/comments/i8iesl/the_helminth_dev_workshop/ Seems it's not as bad as initially thought regarding the grind: "Every Warframe can be Subsumed to permanently provide 1 specific Ability to Helminth." So it's permanent. No need to sacrifice a frame every time you want to put that ability on another frame. There's a lot of "meh" abilities, as was expected, but there's also some very powerful ones. This is going to be both a lot of fun and a mess to balance. Buffs like Rhinos Roar, Valkyrs Warcry, Mirage Eclipse and Mesas Shooting Gallery will be awesome additions to a lot of frames (not sure if Roar is just flat out 100% always better than Shooting gallery so the Shooting Gallery might be moot). Aside from damage there's survivability: Novas Null Star for damage reduction, Blood Altar for regen, Wukongs Defy for armor/invuln. And alot of useable ones: Nidus Larva, Proteas Dispensary, to mention few. This is going to lead to alot of theorycrafting and a lot of customization options
  23. Having played this a bit now, both in premade parties (with Chimp and some other friends), solo and with pick up groups I must say it's very very enjoyable! It's a perfect game to play a session here a session there, adaptable to 1-4 people. I'd advice not taking it TOO seriously, aka don't go in with the mindset to grind gold (even though it's possible I think it'd get very boring trying to maximize efficiency) but just have fun. Lots of different stuff to do. Merchant runs, treasure hunting, skeleton killing, world events, pvp and all earning currency which can only be used for cosmetics (so no p2w is possible). The best thing though is just the feel of sailing around. It has the perfect amount of chores to do around the boat (trimming sails, angling sails, steering, keeping lookout etc), the distances never feel too long and it's just a joy to cruise around doing stuff. Considering a game pass is only 1€/1$ I highly recommend checking it out, preferably with a crew which makes it a lot more fun.
