    I started with Covenant of the Phoenix playing Rift Planes of Telara - great game and superior guild!
    After a year, Rift aged, with many people leaving for SWTOR.

    I tried League of Legends in the Interim, and am a long time player of eve-online, but not with CotP in the wormhole, me no like wormhole! Then switched to playing World of Tanks with CotP full time, and am pushing hard as a recruiter to expand the chapter. Mechwarrior Online came out, and a few of us switched to that, but the chapter is inactive as the game goes through the beta process, I still play it, mostly keeping up dated and up to date on changes.

    I'm looking forward to NeverWinter, AD&Ds new online MMO coming out. I had played DDO a while back and like the mechanics of D&D with thieves providing valuable services to the party.
    August, 2012. Mechwarrior Online is a in orbit, as beta rolls on, new features are added, the game moves closer to open beta soon. The MW universe has so many possibilities to be an MMO+ like eve-online, with markets, missions, guild vs. guild warfare. Based on the Cry Engine first person shooter platform is going to limit the game, we will see where it goes. At least is Free to Play.

    Dabbled in Star Trek Online to check out the ships with my new graphics card - awesome!!! The game has evolved since it first came out, but if you want anything really cool, you have to shell out hard cash for it or play like a fiend. A friend of mine has spent 2000 euros so far on the game. OMG! I'm still playing STO now, it's my main game.
    March 2013: Still playing STO, haven't spent a dime on, you don't have to do get the good content - thank goodness. Haven't touched WoT in a long time, don't think I will - good luck fellow tankers! I officially resigned from the Chapter when I stopped playing. I still play MWO also with HouseKurita.org Working on fleshing out a Raven, though I prefer heavier mechs, light mechs are the rule of the roost right now.
    I moved into HHoD in MWO and am doing well, though the delay of community warfare has dampened spirits.
    All along I have continued to play Star Trek Online daily, it's a challenge with a never ending list of things to do. Fun!
    Times and games change! I stopped playing Mech Warrior Online, because the game fell through by not releasing community warfare, and many months later, it is no where. They just keep selling mech packs for crazy prices.
    Going back to STO, I wrangled CotP Management to let me restart the chapters, that was 2/15/2014. We are still going today, two fleets, Fed and KDF, with work schedules, its mostly a weekend recruit and shoot, but I still like the game, content keeps coming and there endless things to do!

    World of Tanks - grrr. I found a small group to play with around May, some good folks, and we play tournaments for gold regularly, so I have to input some time into getting tanks and crews up to snuff, but not that much time. Winning gold in tourneys allows you to buy premium time and make faster headway. After a few months of WoT, I reached Tier 9 tanks, purchased one with my hard earned in game currency, and found it to be lacking. I then calculated the cost and time to fully train the crew and mods and get to the next Tier 10 tank, and said no to the next few thousand matches. WoT is over for me.

    2013-06 - 2015 Current: MechWarrior Online came out (2 summers ago) and I initially played as a founder, I like the game, but they have done little except release new mech packs for purchase, and community warfare is a disappointment to the player base. They didn't want to make an MMO, so there is nothing to do except beat each other to death in arena style play, that gets old very fast. It's just like WoT in bigger battlemechs. *Sigh*

    2015 - Have you checked out HeartStone? A fun little card game online based up WOW characters, but there is no social aspect to it that I have found, no chat center, no adventure, just card matches. It's okay.

    Checking out Heroes of the Storm - having played League of Legends for a long time on and off, HOTS has a much shorter match time, and is drawing in many new players as its the new game and the time requirement is lower.
    Check out the Angry Joe Show in youtube.com for game reviews and a good laugh!!
    9-2015 Went back to playing eve, MWO has not added any new content in some time. Didn't like Heroes of the Storm, though I do like Hearthstone, they I have to not play games of chance like that, they are essentially a waste of time and similar to gambling. Nothing new on the horizon for gaming, The Division came out, an FPS, not interested. Keep on rolling!

    12-2016 - Still playing with Hearthstone on the side, MWO has not improved and they just announced why, they have been putting resources into Mechwarrior 5. Can I get a refund for all the DLC I bought to fund a different game I didn't play? Bastards!
    Playing World of Wartanks on the side in the REDDIT clan, and tried out WoWarships - its ok, but too simple.
    Eve Online is going well, my corp is small, hi/low sec, doing ok, running incursions, mining, low sec stuff. We have a WH also for better isk. Am taking most of the Christmas - New Year's holiday off, and joining the corp to a new alliance for the new year.
    Also got back into Never Winter, and do like it as a fighter style game, running a half-orc thief for the dps.
    If you take the time to look at the art / graphics in NeverWinter, its a very good looking game!

    Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and look forward to the New Year. Go Hillary!

  3. https://www.playatlas.com/index.php?/atlas-news/records/brief-update-on-ptr-the-upcoming-atlas-15-patch-r102/ BRIEF UPDATE ON PTR & THE UPCOMING ATLAS 1.5 PATCH Hey Pathfinders! Just wanted to come in and give you a quick status update for ATLAS 1.5 before the weekend. We are planning on launching the Public Test Realm next Wednesday, the 3rd of April, and by then there will be an in-depth Captain’s Log which will do a deep dive on the entire patch so you know what to expect. Going forward, we expect subsequent major updates to come on a monthly basis, which will include more content such as new items, weapons, creatures and new areas for players to check out! We know that this update has taken quite some time and we really appreciate everyone’s patience as we dug down to the core of the claiming system and reworked it. We expect that we’ll have this ready to ship onto the main network by the week of the 8th of April. Following ATLAS 1.5, there will be a lot more to come in terms of design changes and content. This announcement post contains a sneak peek of some upcoming new creatures, can you guess what abilities they’ll have?
  4. Thanks to Yakarue for posting this video of CotP Assaulting CSTG main base harbor in K4. Some of the design elements we would like to incorporate into our base for next server wipe on April 8th. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/390581446
  5. To be, or not to be,....rammed by a whale!
  6. Hesh is amazing, will try to put some of your knowledge to use for todays K4 activities.
  7. I didn't think to look that COTP was playing Atlas, I followed my current LIF MMO group into the game, its okay, I'd like to get with COTP though, see how things are going!~
  8. You answered that question in a different topic, best advice you gave, wait until Fall 19 for Beta 2. Will do.
  9. Thank you for this, I know that CU has been in closed/limited testing for some time. Can you tell us when Beta 1 will be released, how to be ready for it, and join COTP in what we hope will be our next big chapter and draw.
  10. Just an update, as I have been checking each Sunday on the monument to be paid, someone is paying it - good. The money is getting low though, only < 200 silver on hand, that is like a couple weeks of payment available. If the monument is not paid and falls, the best I can do is try to replace it with a new one, I don't have permissions to do anything else. Someone is on the claim, using the resources, and has been paying it, kudos broski! I'll keep checking and see what happens and what I can do at that point. Most of Buyan is falling to the chinese as they wipe out undefended bases all over the map, most NA players have moved to Telmun, due mostly to the game mechanics that force players to be there to make coin and be able to sell to the crown - which is not possible on Buyan. If you have any questions, please message me.
  11. Having checked in to do dailies for NWO, make contributions to the guild etc. There is a wrinkle in the game now. You can no longer cycle through your characters and do standard random dungeons for AD on each character, you only get a bonus/large amount of AD when you run it once on any character, after that, the next character gets no bonus. So one when from making an easy 25k per toon, down to 25k for one toon per day; laughingly, they allow now refinement up to 75k a day. Considering the amount of AD a non premium player would need to progress, the progression has been slowed by a factor of 10 if you ran the standard 10 characters most folks have to make 250kAD a day. I'd like to hear from any members on their thoughts about the new AD system. Is the grind too long now? Not worth the time and carpal-tunnel? Let's put it up to a vote.
  12. I have Comcast cable for internet, pretty good, no real complaints. I ran across a post on a game help page, stating you may get better performance from Googles Public DNS servers. I switched, and so far so good, COTP loaded up much faster! Read on! GOOGLE PUBLIC DNS SERVER ADDRESSES INSTRUCTIONAL DOCUMENT PAGE Let us know if you think your webpage and gaming connections speeds improve!
  13. Check your monitors and laptops display specifications before buying them. If they contain / use PWM, avoid them. Here is the more technical article on PWM, from there they have a list of laptops with PWM scores. http://laptopmedia.com/highlights/what-is-pwm-why-is-it-important-and-why-did-we-add-this-test-to-our-reviews/
