  • Want to know what makes Agents stealthy and Constructors healthy?

    Well then, check out our new skill lists for both the Agent and Constructor classes, two of Auto Assault's hottest builds. Agents are the Biomek’s “rogue” class. Attacking from stealth and clearing all of the enemies in their path, they are a force to reckon with. The Constructor class is the “healing” class. However, don’t let that fool you.

    They pack quite the punch. So head on over to the Agent and Constructor pages at our Auto Assault - TenTonHammer community site to check out their skills!

    REXOR
    Utilizing advanced Biomek nanotechnology, Constructors are able to completely reconstruct most types of vehicles in the field, restoring them to operational status.

  • I think the Germans call this a "doppel-pwnage"...

    Even come across another player in the World of Warcraft Battlegrounds that you own completely, yet they keep coming back for more punishment? Ever wonder what makes them tick? Our nefarious newsie Awenyddion has been playing WoW a lot lately. Recently she ran into one such person in the Battlegrounds and just had to find out what made them keep going.

    Ten Ton Hammer recently started a guild on the new Sen'jin server. I've been playing World of Warcraft on and off for the year that it's been live. In all of that time I've never entered a BG or willingly PVP'd. That all changed this weekend when the new crew convinced me that it was fun. They were right! It was an exhilarating experience of non stop action. At first I spent a lot of time running around in circles in a panic and then after the second time I found myself in the groove.

    During the third Battle Ground (WSG) I found myself with a nemesis. He was a level 19 human rogue who thought he could take the flag from me. I killed him every time but he kept coming back. I had to talk to him! I needed to know what was driving this player to commit virtual suicide over and over… and over again. After some digging and delving I finally was able to get in touch with this character (Whom we'll call Spanky) to find out what made him tick. The conversation went as follows.

  • Xerin doesn't work for NCSoft...

    But he, like the rest of us, is anxious for the release of Auto Assault. So much so that he put together a comical "Top Ten Reasons to Pre-Order Auto Assault." Why a top ten list, you say?

    I was thinking the other day that Auto Assault needs more top 10
    lists. Everything needs more top 10 lists, well everything except
    penguins. So I sat around for awhile and polled my audience of
    stuffed animals for reasons why you should and shouldn't pre-order
    Auto Assault. The responses varied but it was mostly silence. Since
    the audience was probably taking a nap, I went and wrote out my own
    top 10 list. After about eight days of working on it, I finally
    finished my masterpiece. Now if only I could only make a top 10 list
    for reasons not to make top 10 lists.

    Well, ok, but what about some reasons not to pre-order? Xerin has you covered! Here's my personal favorite, but there's plenty more where this came from:

    4) Pre-ordering supports people who work for video game selling places!!!!
    We all know video games are bad for you. Why support people who sell them? I played a game once then went and ate some Turkey in a sandwich. Someone said “THAT TURKEY DIDN’T HAVE A CHANCE” and I thought to myself… “I wonder if that turkey would have had a chance if I didn’t play that video game.”

    GUILD WARS FACTIONS TO BE UNVEILED IN MASSIVE BETA TESTING EVENT AVAILABLE TO MORE THAN 3 MILLION GAMERS

    ArenaNet Opens Up Highly Anticipated Game to Global Beta Test and Announces Pre-Order Availability

    BELLEVUE, WA (February 9, 2006) – ArenaNet®, creators of the #1 selling online roleplaying game Guild Wars®, and NCsoft® Corporation, the world’s leading developer and publisher of online computer games, announce today plans for a landmark event to preview Guild Wars Factions™, the highly anticipated follow up to 2005’s critically acclaimed game Guild Wars. On March 24, 2006, game players around the globe are invited to participate in the Guild Wars Factions Preview Event, an exclusive and one-time opportunity unlike any offered before.

    All current Guild Wars players can join the event, and will be able to invite up to three of their friends using an in-game invitation interface. Entry into the beta event will also be available through the Guild Wars Factions pre-order package, which will include the Guild Wars Factions (GWF) pre-order CD, a GWF beta access key, a “friend” key that allows access to the beta event, a 14-day, 10-hour trial key for the original Guild Wars game, a tactical guide, and a quick-reference card. The Guild Wars Factions pre-order key also adds one unique item for each of the game’s two new professions, the Ritualist and the Assassin, and authorizes the user to play Guild Wars Factions 24 hours before the game’s street date in spring 2006. The Guild Wars Factions pre-order package will be available in retail stores nationwide beginning February 28.

    A game beta test of this size and scope has never been offered before and is a unique event for both fans and the ArenaNet team alike. With current Guild Wars players, their invited friends, and players around the world who purchase the GWF pre-order converging on the game for the Guild Wars Factions Preview Event, ArenaNet is preparing capacity in all its data centers to handle record-breaking numbers of new players.

    “To be able to open up Guild Wars Factions and share this one-time experience with so many people is truly a thrill,” said Mike O’Brien, ArenaNet co-founder. “Guild Wars players will get the opportunity to play Factions before the game’s release while sharing the game with up to three of their friends. We can’t wait for the feedback from the seasoned players, as well as those who join us for the first time on March 24.”

  • A gift for the magi...

    Darkgolem gives you what you want: a complete list of Level 1 spells from Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach! Even better, he tells what each spells does and how useful it is to a budding wizard or sorcerer:

    [Sleep] can be targeted upon a spot designated by a cursor, but the fast paced nature of combat makes this a difficult technique. When placed upon a running creature, it will appear at the location the creature was when activated, usually missing. Hypnotism is much more effective for disabling creatures until dealt with in other ways.

  • Consult the scrolls!
    Messiah, our World of Warcraft community site lead, has another TenTonHammer UI Mod review. This time I look at a mod that was recently suggested to me in game. The Mod is the ScrollingCombatText mod by Grayhoof.

    "This is a relatively simple appearing mod, however appearances can be deceiving. On the surface this mod does not appear to do a whole lot, however once you have played with it for a little while it's hard to part with."

    You can read the whole review at our WoW - TenTonHammer community site.
