Just wanted to throw it out there that my 174 agent, Bodj, intends to attend all three meetings, if the real world leaves me the **** alone this weekend ;)
Also, congrats guys, looks like this might really come together!

As per the discussion on letting non-froobs in... I think we really have to delineate this in no uncertain terms before we start this thing for real. Leaving it a "grey" area is just going to end up with us relying on pocket 220s all the time. I'm of the opinion that things geared towards XP gaining, IE team mishes, should not really be limitted, as the goal is strictly to level up, not prove a point, but when it comes to actual raids, I think we should try our hardest to avoid outside support. Of course, this is all pending on whether or not we get enough of a turn-out to do the high-lvl stuff on our own, but I have faith :lol:

Addendum

Also, I vote to disclose the identity of the other five...ahem, all six people who voted "Nah, who needs another gimp group?" on the poll here, so we can do nasty things to them.

One last thing...

Post by himynameisbob » Wed Apr 09, 2008 4:34 am

Will someone please invite Shaikorth (sp?)
If you run team mishes regularly you've no doubt teamed with the guy, he's a hell of a froob soldier, though I think he's probably hit 200 by this point. I keep meaning to invite him but I always forget.
I'll keep an eye out for him next time I log in.

Preliminary raid notes...

Post by DocJones » Wed Apr 09, 2008 11:17 pm

Hello fellow Froobs,

We are just a few hours away from the first raid, and i wanted to clear some thing up. Be sure to check the !news pane often, same applies for the !timers i set up for the raids.

As Brinkman/Slipperyjoe stated: !member currently shows roughtly 50 toons. There are lots of alts registered as member, i guess. I'd like to please all members applying with more than one toons to decide on a main and add the others using the !alts add <main> command. Let's try to keep the memberlist clean. Additionally, some of you have invited other Froobs to the bot. Thanks for spreading the word! Go on and invite some more ;)

As a personal sidenote: I added my non-tl5 toons (see signature) as alts to the bot and put them on the safe list. That has been done to cover the eventual need for an contact person if i am not logged with Zzzzzzwap.
If any of you feels the need to contribute to the community and wanted to get the same done, don't hesitate to /tell me. I am aiming for a 24x7 coverage.

Upcoming raids
As i can't really say how much people will show up, we have to decide what to do upon the meeting at the rally point (Newland Bronto Burger stand, outside Neut'R'Us). Currently i have on my focus:

- Team Mission, Inner Sanctum first floor (if less than 6 people attend)
- Outside Dyna Hunting (PW, DAV, ...), Inner Sanctum 2nd floor (if less than 12 people show up)
- Real Raids: Ljotur, ... If we are more than 12 peeps (Yay!)

Please make up your mind before the rally, most likely we will decide what to do if we know the setup/attendance.
As for raidleading: I am not realy experienced in leading more than a team. We have some commands to setup teams in the bot and we have a simple raid interface there. If we have time (and people), i will point out team leaders and perhaps a primary/secondary raid leader as well. All depends on the attendance ;) So please be prepared to be picked as team or raid leader. I will keep track of leaders and will try to rotate a bit, however if the performance of a given team setup works out to be ok, why change a winning team. As for the team setup's i will make suggestions that can be debatable . Please keep in mind: I R Noob ;)

Just a few notes regarding the bot for you to acknowledge:
- I installed the !init, !as, !nanoinit commands: They will help you with calculations regarding the setting of your slider depending on the weapon/nano attack/recharge speed and your corresponding init. (!as is used for aimed shot calculations)
- I installed the !nano database. It gives a hint on where to find a specified nano per profession/ql, whatever. Try it out ;)
- I installed the !mission command. Everyone should know this...
- I installed the !fortune database. Un*x cracks will know, what to do ;)

Looking forward to see you all around!

Fun Epic battle, even tho we died it was still great fun.

Image

When leets were blind it was smooth sailing. But when Um.. blind droped for some reason BOOM. still a valent effort for a first try.

My observations were blinds = uber when teamed with GA fixers. the towers are useful, Leets are pure EVIL, and 4k crits suck.

The battle Went smoothly Till the end of the last 2 bubbles After that Esdian Bot died and all the Leets of doom Pew pew Esdian to death, Then we lost our Blind aura And Well As you can see From the up coming screenies of Bodj It wasn't pretty

Heyas!

First raid is over! We got 12 to 14 members up forming two teams.
Here's a short documentation :)
Me and Idef at the rally point about 20 minutes ahead the gathering:

After a short discussion, we decided to try Ljotur. Quickly we organized transportation teams and head out to Drill Island. (sorry for the team invite popup ;))

The Battle raged for quite some time. Here are two shots i took intermediate:

and

I'd like to thank especially Randomchance for stepping up and taking the raidlead (as well as pulling and tanking). Awesome Job, Randomchance!

All others did an awesome job as well (Hemophilia our Doc comes to mind, or Bodj, the MP err... Agent throwing out mocham after mocham) Good job everone!

Hope most of you gonna attend this evening and perhaps tomorrow, to finally get Ljotur down! (BTW: Placeholders & kitties were a breeze)..
