    Hi potential new friend! Sorry I took so long to respond to your app, I've been busy with work. Ayyyyyy a Michigander! Born and raised in Wisconsin here, but spent a lot of time in da UP, yaderehey. Random question time! What's your favorite Michigan sports team? What is Cayde-6's favorite dance? Favorite movie trilogy?

    Hello! I know we've met/played together already but I've been slouching on forum activity! 1) Do you prefer sci-fi or fantasy, typically? 2) What is your favorite tv/movie/fandom/etc. from your preference?

    Introduction

    Hi potential new friend! Sorry it took me 2 days to respond, work has been pretty busy. CStrike was my jam back in high school, I used to spend whole paychecks at the local LAN arcade playing with my friends. My son is starting his associates in game design this month, he's spent the last 3 or 4 years just playing around on Scratch or GameMaker. It does seem like a really great hobby that's hard to turn into a reliable living, so I'm trying to push him towards the AI/programming side instead of pure game design. Random questions! Name your top 3 games that were sequels. (Mine are Half-Life 2, Mass Effect 2, and Hearts of Iron 2.) I just stalked Morganton on the map and it looks like the sort of small southern town that cable news reporters come to and ask questions about 'politics in the Bible Belt'. Ever had that happen? What are Titans hiding in their shoulderpads?

    Introduction

    One of the biggest games for me was counter-strike. It was really one of the biggest games that got me started in pc gaming, started back in the old 1.5 / 1.6 days if anyone else had played it back then. A few other big games that I can think of for me was Wow, Guild wars, Suikoden 1 & 2. There are alot more but that's all that comes to mind right now. I'm hoping to get the chance to go back to school and continue my education further at a university, but for now work really takes up all my time. I would love to be able to find a small Dev group to be able to work on games or start my own. But unfortunately were I'm located there isn't much option where I'm located. As for Obx I've never really been. Vacation for me was to go to myrtle beach down in south Carolina. Been a long time since I've been though (roughly 18 years)

    Hey Sooper! Glad you made your way over here to our forums! What are some of your favorite games that you've played? (Besides Destiny) Are you looking to use that college education to try and get a job in the games industry? Also, thoughts on OBX? Overrated or a great weekend getaway? Anyways, I hope others will pop in here to chime in with questions or comments. In the meantime, I'll have a forum message coming your way with a few other items so keep an eye out. Looking forward to playing with you in game!

I work in a machine shop as a parts tester and painter, I have a little bit of college under my belt as a software engineer and game design. Not too much more than that about me but feel free to ask away.

    I played very little ESO during the beta stage, but never got into it. It's been one of those games I've wanted to try but never had enough down time to pick up. Ark is alot of fun and we really enjoy it. It takes alot of patience and team work to get ahead in the game. We picked up the turtle from a co-worker of mine. She bought it for her 4 year old daughter who named it Grumpy Bubbles Pizza. Although we call him Mikey, we still think his old name is pretty cute. Here is a picture of the pit-lab, if it works lol. https://imgur.com/a/1HDfIbn Anyways, I do believe I have everything setup for the guild/clan now for the most part. Discord is up, Mumble should be setup properly, policies reviewed, etc. Hope to see you all out there! Thank again for the invite/welcome!

    Hi Xotic -- welcome! Speaking as a retired English teacher, your grammar def. does not suck. Other than adding a couple commas here n there for clarity, your prose style is quite easy to read -- a pleasure even! That said, no one here will judge you on such things, myself included. We genuinely enjoy finding kindred spirits to people our storied halls (and after almost 14 yrs as a gaming community, we've got oodles of stories xD) Love the small menagerie you've got going, lol, turtle named Mikey. Cute. And you have to post a pic of that pit-lab mix! Post here in your thread or on Discord (lobby or social) once you've got that set up. I once rescued a beleaguered Afghan hound named Plato. He had demodectic mange and was missing most of the hair on his hind torso and tail. The creature looked a wreck and absolutely nothing like an Afghan lol. He was also mostly blind. And entirely stupid. Walked straight into a pool. Twice. I had to jump in, fully clothed, and fish him out (he'd sunk right to the bottom). Never a dull moment with Plato! Sweetest, happiest dog you'd ever meet, but damn was he dumb, lol. I'm mostly a pc MMO-er as well and am currently playing Elder Scrolls Online with a very casual SoH group. Sadly, fatigue is setting in a touch so I thought I'd take a bit of a breather and futz around w/ some RPGs or something for a bit. If you play ESO at all, give @Simone a shout for an invite. We'd love to have you whenever you're on (lol, why did cannibalism just pop into my head?) I've never played Ark but I know there's a few around here who do. Mention your server on Disco (gaming) and see if anyone bites, hehe. It's a game that has piqued my interest, but I've not actually pursued it. Yet ^^ After your first response to your thread here, I will alter your forum rank so that you can poke around more freely. Although we use Discord quite a bit, we still love our forums (esp. members of the old vanguard like myself lol) -- make yourself at home! Vet us as we vet you and hopefully you will come to think of us as your first stop when venturing into a new (or old) game and you look for game data or for peeps with whom to play. Each of us plays multiple titles from a variety of genres (many of which go unmentioned! lol) Anyway, sorry for the verbosity ^^ I look forward to chatting (or playing) w/ you at some point \o/

    Welcome to our forums! I'm glad you finally made it over here. Anyways, I'll leave the questions this time to other people. In the meantime, I'll be sending you a forum message with some items for you to look through sometime in the next day or so.
  16. Hello All! First and foremost I'd like to thank you for the invite as well as taking in a few of our Shattered Fleet members. I would also like to take this time to apologize for my spelling, grammar, and punctuation. My IRL name is Curtis. I am 34, married, and have 4 children (2 boys, 2 girls) ages 10-13. I live in Michigan and currently an equipment operator at a local OSB mill. Previously a field service tech in the gas and oil industry. My hobbies are all over the place. I primarily am a PC gamer, former console gamer (Xbox). I love to build and upgrade gaming PCs, and having discussions on the matter. I built my own, my wifes, and several friends of mine. I also enjoy the outdoors including hunting, fishing, camping, etc. I am into many types of powersports as well including boating, motorcycle riding, etc. I see you do ask about pets, so I will get that out of the way. We have a 3 year old red nose pit bull yellow lab mix named Cami, A painted turtle named Mikey, and a hermit crab that apparently doesn't have a name lol. Before you ask, we do not have any cats due to my daughter being allergic. I really enjoy multiplayer PvE games the most, but there is a wide variety of games that I play/played. Recently I have been playing Ark with my wife and sister along with a few friends I picked up from my time playing MMOs. I run my own dedicated PvE servers for us to play on. I have been playing Destiny 2 since launch with a few long breaks in between due to lack of content and clan participation. I had Destiny 1 for Xbox one but couldn't get back into console gaming after playing PC for a while and therefore did not put much time into it. So needless to say, I have long awaited a PC release of a Destiny title. I do play some Overwatch and Diablo 3 from time to time as well along with a few Steam and Origin games of all shapes and sizes. I do also play some World of Warcraft occationally, yet I do not have alot of time invested in it as of late. I started playing MMOs with Phantasy Star Online Ep. 1&2 for the Nintendo Gamecube and have been hooked ever since. Played a little Phantasy Star Universe on Xbox 360 until the servers were shut down perminently due to lack of stability. This led me to TERA and my interest in PC build/gaming. I played TERA as a top tier Lancer (tank) for over 3 years in some of the biggest most reputable guilds as an officer and even GM. After many many undesirable changes to the game along with the realization of my addiction to TERA, I decided to put it to bed for good and have not played it in a long time. Since then, I play whatever peaks my interest. Thats all I got. Look foraward to meeting all of you!

    Welcome to our forums! Glad to have you joining us! We got a tradition here of asking our recruits multiple questions as a way to get to know them better so I'll get some going while others filter in here. Play any other games? Any non-gaming hobbies? What type of work do you? Any pets? (Pictures are always good!) Also, I'll have a forum mail coming your way shortly with a couple things for you to look over.

    Life's Intro

    Lemon-aid I can't fault you for not liking lemonaid, it is often a tad too tart but I can't not have lemon in my water or tea flavored water. Always go with your gut, especially when it comes to food. Chalupas, like most food, are just modified tacos. In this case, deep fried. Good choice! Most folks around these parts call me Practical. Probably because my real name is super common: Michael. I am from all over - my family moved 7 times while I was growing up, but right now I'm in Baltimore. Any core Zellda or Pokemon game will always rank high on my favorites, but if I had to pick an all time favorite... Baldur's Gate 2. We're very active in Discord - you can jump in there and hollar if you want to group up for something - pvp, strikes, or even to just play through the storyline quests.
  22. Psssst.  Guys...over here.  Don't tell anyone but I've just started playing a little WoW again after a 10 year hiatus.

      There's nothing wrong with a little WoW.

      For me it was pretty bad.  I was pretty addicted back then and when I left I deleted every piece of armour and every one of my level 70 characters (Cap at the time).  I just had the urge one day to do some healing in the best trinity type game.  Lots has changed since I left.

    Again, I am so sorry that I took so long to reply and I really enjoyed getting to know you guys a little better. I hope to see you all in game. Also, feel free to add me on Bnet and hit me up anytime. I am around the PC a lot so dont be a stranger! Life#1343

    Life's Intro

    To be completely honest with you, I never knew about Fermi's Paradox to be able to try to explain it to anyone, but after reading up a little, these are not ideas that I haven't already thought about. To not drag on, I agree with it. I think if we can exist that someone else has to be out there, too. Why wouldn't they? We can't assume there isn't life some where that we cannot travel to. So yea, if life can happen here I feel that it is else where as well. As far as contact, that's a good question. Maybe we have and aren't told about it because entertainment has potentially given alien life a false identity that would scare others. Maybe other life is simply out of our reach communication wise and physically. Again, while I have personally thought about these things I have not researched this enough to really have a conversation about it, but I would love to hear more. Feel free to add me on Bnet Life#1343

    Life's Intro

    That depends on which way you think things have went sideways. But yes, it really has. Here is why I think so. Raiding - raids are no longer "hard." They have just become tedious complex, and yes I swear there is a difference. I feel that raid bosses now have mechanics that arent mechanically hard like they used to be(if that makes sense, as in game play style etc). Now, instead of having challenging mechanics we have a list of bs mechanics to complete in order to phase bosses. While this makes raids harder at times they really arent challenging skill like before, they are just making you dance and remember steps. I've tried to example how I feel about this to others with no success. I hope that I haven't confused you, too. Talents - talents were dumded down a long time ago. This is good but also a low blow to people who worked through the talent tree to best maximize their dps or healing potential as best suited to their play style & strengths and weaknesses. Talents again - every expansion they change something else that didn't really matter or replace abilities with abilities that are essentially the same with a new name and animation, not a fan of that. Forum qqs - WoW seems to be conforming more and more to who cries on forums the loudest. A lot of nerfs have been unnecessary . Lore (the qqs continued) - The current lore has upset a great many people Horde side. They are threatening to unsub and because of this Blizzard will again conform and write the pretty story that everyone (most) want. I feel that this is disrespectful to the writers. I feel like they are just being realistic. Throughout history there have been many tyrannical leaders and very disheartening events. Those things are what makes perseverance sweeter & and adds depth to the lore. Just my opinion, though. and I do not blame others who see the situation differently. Sorry again for the long reply. I am long winded at times! Also, do you play WoW or any other MMOs?
