AoW Guild Wars - My words can't do it justice.

bcbullybcbully Westland, MIPosts: 8,277Member Uncommon

So I'm not going to try to be fancy, the scope of the event is wider than my field of view. Think kingdom, now think kingdom divided. South West, South River, Central, North West, Northern.

Within those regions are towns, and schools

and most of all land.

Land with open world keeps. Keeps larger than Iron Forge, or Stormwind. Keeps for your guild to put their name on and build on, if you can take it, and defend it. There are only 30 or so of these keeps. There are hundreds of guilds. Guilds with hundreds of people. On top of that one guild can hold more than one keep. 

 

This is what is being fought for. This is why alliances are formed, this is why money can't even break these ties. This is why murdering and camping a newb might cost your guild something they will never get back. 

 

Goon Tang and allies went to war tonight with Magnum Opus and Allies. Magnum Opus took a beating, but held their land.

    Its the other way around, goontang took the beating, in fact they gave up in the last 2 minutes, at least last time they didnt give up till the last second

    What happened in Chengdu after the war :p. Shinobi and Goons turned Aow into farmville. Idk how you guys held on. Shinobi had yall pinned in the basment for 40 mins :p

    For those who don't the lower level of these keeps are so big you need mounts to get around.

    GoonTang has allies? That's surprising.

    About 10 pst. Not to long after the War. It was as wild as I've seen Chengdu.

    Two things, first, we were the ones that camped shinobis and goontangs in chengdu with killing order for 1hour and 30 minutes, till they broguth every single one of them and it got kinda even. Second for the last two wars we have completely abandoned the upper levels. Theres no use defneding them because they dont really delevel if they get burnt and with their superior numbers it makes hard keeping the buildings that connect to the underground alive. Therefore we go straight to the throne room and spam spin to wins and pulls and turtle like mad because the space is so narrow their numbers mean nothing. They die like flys there. 

    We keep winning because goons have no strategy, we keep three 6 man arrays up at all times and 3 music players. On the other hand goons try to zerg rush us without stop. To be honest last one was kinda pathetic. I always stay near the throne to kill any stray goons that happen to get in. Last time i got 16 kills, now i got 1. Thats how bad they were this time.

    Goons usually do... They are known as canon fodder... ^^  Or is that little bees?... ^^

    The wars are fun, but mechanically terribly broken.  I'm fairly certain what we consider to be "guild wars" now, will be vastly different come release.

    The specifics I'm not sure about, but I was under the impression the current Chinese version works in a very different way from ours.

    I know AresPL understands most of the CN version, perhaps he would be so kind as to clarify?

  • AresPLAresPL ElblagPosts: 290Member
    nope, only diff is that later guild leader will be able to declare war on map for 24h where guild can freely pk enemy guild

    I was surprised to see a significant number of Goons playing this game. I guess the social ineptitude of these fat, neck-bearded spergers means there will be groups of them in pretty much any MMO.

    They're a few EVE guilds here. They're streaming videos, passing out keys and recruiting other EVE players.

    Thats been my observation as well.  One tends to find Goonies in the oddest of places.  I've no doubt some are in Hello Kitty online adventure, if they have a chance to ruin someones play experience... ^^

    Definitely this game would be much better without spining techinques

    How much "constructing" can players do in this game?

    I mean can a guild build their own city / castle or something like that?

    Waiting for L2 EU Classic

    No the plot and structures are there. So no physical building. Your guild can activate/build those structures up so they can use them though. This is the one place I can give an edge to Archeage(from what I hear). It would be nice to construct from the ground up. They lose me with the questing for levels stuff though.

     

    On the 10th, the tax system will be in play. Own two keeps in one area, your guild can then tax that areas sales.

    I havent tried this game myself, so I was wondering if there is also the constructing part. I am not criticizing the game.

    On the contrary, these wars you described in the OP look awesome.

    It's free. It would be a good idea to learn a little before launch. There will be no wipes. You could end up falling in love with your dry run toon though and keep going. I think there will be a new sever at launch though.

    Guild wars are actually a massive joke - they are probably the single worst thing about the game...

    But heck, if it gets more people in the game - fantastic.  Just do a couple dozen,  you'll see what I mean.

    The guild war play could be better. Just like school war. What goes into them though, the polotics are amazing.

    While I enjoy reading your posts and agree with them often I find you enjoy re writing history.

    1) magnum opus is a larger unskilled guild. You have never beat our defence . Your alliance lost so many times many of you turned to pve. I submit your alliance is the unskilled guild. With that said you have many good pvpers.  Your gm is infamous for only fighting with a obvious numbers advantage.

    2) shinobi / goons have many members that seem to enjoy exploiting bugs and weakness of the game engine.

    3) Your alliance uses cheap tactics such as attempting to block other guilds from participating in guild wars (failed btw)

    4)  congrats on beating dead or nearly dead guilds in guild wars.

    now on the other hand your alliance has many good points. Grithok is a good organizer  and comes up with good tactics attacking so many of our allies in 1 day was smart. (note took nice advantage of Your alliance size) 

    but please try not to re write history it's beneath you and your obviously good writing skill.

    What are you talking about?

    Oh, is it a MO/TDH/DGZ player?  If so, move along folks - nothing to see here.  :P

    I mean they were so last month.  I really haven't seen much Magnum Opus for the last couple of weeks.  I find Invictus to be the intriguing new guild on the block (at least at the top tiers).

    You can pretend anyone is last months all you want, that coalition of guilds is still the strongest one. MO are kings at defending guilds, they singlehandely repelled atacks from your alliance last night, you couldnt even destroy all lions, much less get to the throne.

     

    But then again you and Bully are basically  part  of Goon overflow guilds so what does it matter....
