[FOR REAL NOW] HELLCOM/TARA ACCESS FOR OMNI/NEUT FROOBS

Post by Matammyr » Thu Feb 28, 2013 6:47 am

I wasn't sure what section to make this thread in, so feel free to move it. Someone please sticky it as well.

I want to preface this entire post with this statement:
  • :dontknow: That's the way they want it, I don't know why dude.
As some of you may know, you guys got Hellcom access now, beginning at level 195, for the sole purpose of raiding Tara. If you want Hellcom access (and I stress I am not kidding about this):

1. You must have logged into the game at some point post-merge.

2. Post your toon's (min. level 195) name before merge and if it was changed, what it is now after merge here in this thread, including profession and level, as well as any alts you'd like to register on Hellcom (I suggest only alts you plan to bring to loot stuff at Tara, and by default that means TL4 or higher, must give pre and post merge names if different, exact level, and profession as well).

EDIT: Please let me know which of your toons are Omni and Neut as well.

3. I have to manually take this list of names, and post them on omnihq.

4. If everything checks out, you will be added to Hellcom.

OTHER STUFF

If you're clan.
  • I don't think you guys have any idea what you're even doing, let alone me. Any info on this would actually be welcomed, but I'm pretty sure you're safe.
What if I'm Omni/Neut and have Clan alts?
  • No, you don't.
..but what if I have Clan alts?
  • No, you don't.
What is Hellcom?
  • It's a bot that does everything pvp/raid related on RK1. RK2 Omni have decided to go with this system for merge. We're only there to raid Tara
Will my Taratime points transfer?
  • Yes, and they're actually being doubled for everyone on RK2 because RK1 gets points for everything, not just Tara.
What if I have a paid alt and a froob main?
  • :happy2: Congratulations! :happy2: Now you have a paid main, and a froob alt. As far as Hellcom is concerned, anyway. I'd imagine if your paid account is active, they'd want you to bring this one to Tara.
Why is this such a big deal?
  • To my understanding, while froobs were somewhere between "loved" and "barely tolerated" on RK2, RK1 saw you, well, let's say not favorably. Make no mistake, we're on very thin ice, so expect some hate, and I'd advise you to not be in the bot all the time (Only for Tara. This bot has a lot of spam in it, so I doubt you'd want to be anyway), don't ever go AFK at Tara, listen to orders, behave, don't slack, die with dignity, ect. You know, the basic stuff. This was always the case on RK2, but I think the froob/paid interaction on RK1 was much more limited, so I think they're expecting you to show up in ICC starter armor and asking stupid questions all the time. I don't know, just do your duty and you'll be fine.
I'm new/from RK1 and I've never been to a Tara raid.
  • Message me or any of the other RK2ers in game and we'll give you the tour and what the orders mean and so on and so forth.

I just wanted to a massive thank you again Mata for helping resolve all of this.
I did suspect it would go a bit pete tong when it actually came to the merge, but hopefully it'll be all good as long as froobs that attend continue to remain exemplary members of the bot.
It is greatly appreciated that you put time and effort into dealing with what was a reasonably hostile situation for a while, for the benefit of all omni and neut froobs!
:notworthy:
:happy2:

Please, I could not have done this without all the support I got from unexpected places. I'm grateful to all those that stepped up. I just have one question.

I just wanted to clarify quickly that it was indeed remiss of me not to express my thanks to all those involved in the discussions; I am extremely grateful to all those that stepped up, both froob and paid, and on both sides of the discussion because a reasonable outcome was reached.
On reflection 'hostile' was not really fitting either, uncomfortable would probably have been more apt. And again, perpetuated by both paid and froob people at times.

My use of the phrase 'pete tong' is likely a clear example that I had not really considered the structure or language used in my post! It had been a long day at work and I was happy to read your post (thanks for the explanation EDTA).
You played a large part in representing the community in the discussions though, and I simply wanted to express my thanks for that.

Finally, your last post seems pretty clear enough to me; if it be six a-bong it's 18:00 and so it's probably time for most of them to finish work and head directly to the pub for a pint of ale, hence their excitement ;-)

Even when it was "tentative" we were in! It just happened to be an extremely small number of RK2ers who were registered on omnihq prior to the merge, for the most part.

Yep, until a better system is worked out, and I sincerely hope it is, you post them here.

Welcome to all the former rk1 froobs finally being allowed to do tara raids :) And don't worry if hellcom people give you crap, they give us paid players crap too. Just try not to give it back to them, thats a right only us paying people get :S It has been a truly great spectacle watching this all play out and big kudos to matammyr for the amount of work/time/negotiations I know he spent on this. Even though some of you guys feel like second class citizens sometimes, keep in mind just because were paid, doesn't make us all think that way. :) Most of us from rk2 still continue to defend froobs in hellcom regularly.
