  • Are you an efficient biomechanical modern man?

    Do you drink grease and rinse your hair in transmission fluid? Hopefully not; we definitely wouldn't advise you to do so! However if your character in Auto Assault does then why not check out our revamped Biomek section? Contains all of the transmission fluid fashion — err I mean contains Biomek skills, information, and other efficent things.

    Hundreds of years ago a strange contamination began mutating Humans.
    At first these "sick" Humans were taken to camps for treatment.
    However, they didn't care much for how they were being treated. So the
    "Mutants" began to rebel against the non-mutated. Humanity was no
    match for these new stronger, faster, better Humans. It was decided
    that taking various Humans and augmenting them to be stronger then the
    Mutant force would help quell the uprising. They took in college
    students, soldiers, really anybody and began to replace their body
    parts.

    I, for one, welcome our new biomek overlords. Check out the biomek basics at Auto Assault - TenTonHammer!

  • A Barbarian, a Fighter, and a Ranger Walk into a Tavern...

    Can a group made up of barbarians, fighters and rangers survive the dungeons of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO) without a healer or crowd controller? Darkgolem thinks so. He offers up strategies for handling this, as well as some other unconventional grouping situations. It all comes down to knowing the three roles that are critical to a well-rounded party.

    First and foremost, it is important that the distinction between a character’s role in an adventure and a character’s class is clear. A character’s role is what function they have in making a party successful. A class (for the purpose of this article) is the skill set that character uses to fulfill that role.

    Read the guide and learn how to really party!

  • Boomjack touched on this in his Loading... this morning. I wanted to throw my own two cents in because.. well if you know me, you know I'm extremely opinionated. The problem?

    The Chinese userbase reports widespread delays of over an hour when logging into the game and getting a server list, and the last straw seems to have been complete server outages that disrupted the endgame of a large-scale raid involving nearly 1,000 players.

    Ok now, let's talk about how this would affect world relations, game economy and my general state of panic.

    1. Does Blizzard realize that it's not a good thing to piss China off? Can we say one billion angry people with nuclear weapons? C'mon, we're already on spongey turf with them as it is.

    2. Dare I say it? Gold farming cut in half? The economy is in dire straights!

    In all seriousness, Blizzard does have new hardware in the works so we need to be patient. On the other hand, I can understand their angst. I sat in a mere five minute queue last night trying to get into Sen'jin and nearly lost my mind. What is going on in the minds of the Blizzard execs? Who can say? We can't get anyone to comment on the issues.

    Check out our World of Warcraft community while you're waiting for the servers to come up.

  • The humans, dwarves, and high elves of Warhammer Online!

    Included in this update is information on the High Elves, the Dwarves, and the Humans of the Empire. A basic overview on the current situation of the race and their stance towards the other races is provided. As time goes on, we will be adding all of the Races to our Racial section, as well as adding additional information to what is already present.
