    Does his nation war dance...

    It probably has the highest cost... even compare to TW. I burned out numerous silvers... and even had to equip an mp charm (probably my first since my zhen days). Only complaint is that I can't tell who I am hitting. I can usually tell what i am up against with the names of targets. Now I am just shooting blind and have to base my response off the first shot damage. At one point I also had to stealth away and watch a squad mate get chased by 10ish people... cause we have absolutely no coordination at all. Still by far the most fun I had in years.

    Oh yea... QQ cause my g16 is worth less. Who the ****ing cares.
    1. If I kill you; do something about it yourself, don't go complaining to my wife.
    2. If you have less kill counts then me, don't expect me to take pk advice from you.
    3. If you are hiding behind an alt, don't expect me to acknowledge your existence.

    Nation wars was a good idea...

    ...I dunno about the supply tokens. If they wanted good gear accessible I could understand making an alternate gear that is slightly lower in stats or something. I don't agree with destroying the NV market.

    Yea i love it too, finally can PVP in mass again, since PvP on Sanctuary has basically disapeared. Loads of Fun for everyone.

    I already found way around that not knowing who your shooting. Click on someone, then right click their avatar image on top of screen and whisper them. it will show you who it really is.

    As for the G16, yes i did waste all i had made in the game in 3 years on it. but who cares, i still get to say FIRST! whenever i see someone with a g16 Jaden Emperors Defiance, and now i can also make the rest of my armor, a slingshot, and daggers for my asssassin easily. so its all coool.

    Its not hard to find out who the person is. But when there is 5-10 of them rushing at you... that isn't really an option. Judging the strength/skill/gear of a group is an important factor in how i engage. This is not a comfort that I can afford in nation wars.

    The way I see it is... there really is nothing wrong with giving up (the cost) a few piece of gears to have fun. After all, whats the point of having gears if you are not having fun with it.

    oh man it was great. At first i thought it might suck due to better geared people but, it was really balanced on LC. I can't remember the last time i had that much fun on PWI. Im hoping just as many people do it tomorrow i know we had around 400 people on LC

    .

    when 5-10 are rushing at you, run away to your own lines, that means you advanced too far, as an archer, no matter how good you are, best plan of action is to stay behind your tanks, and kill the people trying to kill them, by keeping them alive, you get kills, and they stay as your personal meat puppets

    Great addition to the game. Was fun finding myself assisting and being assisted by new faces each battle. The not knowing who you're targeted on was kinda fun too. Took faction vs faction vendettas and egos out of it.

    While I'm a bit irritated that this caused canny prices to hit the floor one week after I completed my s3 set, as Kiyoshi said, what's the point of getting gear if you're not gonna have a fun time using it.

    Right after it ended though, I had more client crashes than I've had all year. Probably be worse after Sunday, since will have more participating.

    Since my TV and PC decided to die in the same week I missed this. I'm sensing that dying loses XP and items like regular PVP then?

    Also, long shot here, does anyone know what failure to boot and a 6 beep POST code means with a dell studio xps?

    I know its a hardware issue obviously, but as I'm currently on my zombie PC I can't imagine its the CPU, Video Card, or the motherboard.

    Google has been little help. And so far no one at The Escapist has responded to my post there. I really don't want to use Geek Squad as they are NOTORIOUSLY useless and try to bilk you out of $250+ regardless of what the problem may be.

    They would likely try to convince my that is a software issue or a virus that magically makes my PC not boot up, despite the obvious. I don't want to have to argue with someone that is used to cheating ignorant people that I am not a COMPLETE tyro when it comes to this, but I would love to hear how they plan on fixing a "software" issue when the PC won't even boot up to BIOS b:chuckle

    Even if no one here has any help for me, this is still the longest I've been able to access the internet in 3 days, so I'm happy. Good zombie PC, keep it up b:victory

    It was a lot of fun, and this expansion brought a lot of gear to farm via the nation wars.

    Too bad they couldn't have grouped the east / west coast servers into 2 different Nation wars though. If on the Chinese version they have many severs in one war, and on ours we just have 1 server, so our rewards might be 5x what their rewards are, coupled with the fact our forges have a cheaper cost...

    I wonder how it does balancing, i thought it might go by soulforce but not sure.

    Wow! I missed out this week because of Real Life Syndrome (was raising money for a charity:3) , but from all these videos popping up, it seems really fun!
    Its a refreshing change to not expect who you will be teamed up with or who you are fighting against in pvp because of the anonymity factor (obviously overwritten by whispering to the other players). I'm so glad PWE have made something almost anyone can participate in \o/ well done guys! I'll see you next time ;)

    From what my American and some more kamikaze EU friends said, NW sounds cool.
    Have fun all, too bad some of us have to sleep during night.. (I'm not QQing, NW indeed sounds awesome I'm just sad I can't participate in it)

    So PWI.. give some good geared, old players from other countries some fun cave too?

    So everyone is happy for PvP features and laugh at the non-PvP players that complain...a good view of this screwed-up community, where everyone look at their own interests.

    Even on PvE server,we had kind of PvP content already, the arena, the TW, the Cube...you wanted more PvP content, and you crushed a PvE instance for the sake of PvP....but who cares!, I like PvP **** those nubs PvE players! *** not my own problem Im happy!

    They hadnt crushed anything u could go there all the times u want, u just will have less profit than u use to get. Is funny talking about everyone else are the one **** up meanwhile u ignore the fact that they hadnt remove ANY pve stuff, they just add another instance that if instead of comaplaining about u should play it u could have fun.

    I play in a PVE server with no intention on making a char in a PVP server in my whole life and i still love the event, not only because of the profit that (i do cs a bit but not much) was really nice, but also because it was just good fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and i have no clue about u guys complaining but i do play to have fun.

    Agree 100% w/ this being a wonderful addition.

    I wasnt sure if I would stick with PW upon coming back recently for the expansion. After 1 fun night though ill be staying now. I find myself the next day wishing there was another NW allready lol

    On a side note, Maybe we could help push for a Friday night, SAT morning, sunday afternoon NW set so that all time zones get met? Im in USA so this currently works for me but i do have a ton of Euro friends that are 4am times when friday even starts :/ Id be willing to voice up for them to get a early saturday morning NW :)

    In addition, I have 2 more friends that havnt played in 3 years reinstalling atm as this new addition allows them to actually gear up and play the game. Prior to this they both quit as they couldnt keep up.

    Good job PW team, was well worth my time to come back b:victory

    Like you are not interested in game mechanic involved in keeping the player type balanced and a long term viable game.

    I am not interested in the mechanics of any armor other than endgame armor whatever is current standard at the time, any idiot can get endgame by farming or cash shopping long enough.

    By the way its not called Endgame Armor for nothing.

    You do realize the importance refines/shard play in this game? Simply gaining the armor pieces w/o those wont push toons competent against real endgame geared toons /argument

    Some of you people are ignorant enough not to understand the big picture they changed.

    Nirvana? **** nirvana, but the economy and the farming part it played for the playerbase who enjoys it, that is not to be screwed if they want to keep the population. Same as the goal part of a game which is a vital part for many, sad to break the news..but many are acchievers/PvPers out there rather than socializers or online to watch how many different pretty flowers u can find on the game map. And yea, you should know the acchievers are the PvPers main target, as theyre up to par with gears and in for the challenge as an acchievement rather than the PvP person whos in it for the kill and joy of watching others go down.

    Nirvana can be replaced if removed, replaced with something different, but the way PWI did this..is just bad game development as it effected so many players negatively in such short amount of time, without real replacement as of now. Making a PvP aspect pay an inprinted PVE aspects role for economy...is not a good idea.

    Every game changes, yes. Every game gets a new shift in what's considered OP gears, yes. BUT. It usually doesnt happen over 1-2 wars as it does here. This just literally killed a part of the game that was vital to a huge amount of players, otherwise nirvana wouldnt have been as popular as it was to both casters and APS classes.

    Gearshifts are supposed to happen naturally imo for the whole goal progress to work as it should, this was purely forced. Prices on nirvana items would have gone down as more people progress and complete their nirv s3s and started running it more efficent to bring more mats on the market. Prices have already gone down on most servers compared to what they were a year ago. This just crashed the market to the point where the instance was made into trash, putting many PVE players seeking where to go and what to farm, or questioning the value of their own gamestyle with this game as their goals and acchievements just turned into nothing, with no equal instance replacement.

    Wait... What?

    Your speaking about PW economy like its good or something lol

    Nirvana played, has played and is still playing a major factor in how BORKED the current PW economy is. By no means am I saying that NW will fix the economy as its not been here long enough to know (probably wont) but by no means is it going to bork it anymore than it allready is. As far as im concerned, they could do away with the instance entirely or do like they did for lunar.. make it pretty much a BH only.

    NW .. even if it messes with the economy is 1000 times funner than nirvana so if it borks the economy more.. so be it, least we can have some fun. If you still like nirvana (as I liked lunar) its still there for the enjoyment.

    Please please though, do not try to say PW economy was good , I keep falling out of my chair laughing and hurting myself when i read that.

    Thanks
