  • Tabletop Gameternoon 6.17.17 - Pandemic

    The group had to split into two tables for this one (dang we're busy!) so this is just one half of what happened on our Gameternoon this past Saturday. If you've never seen Pandemic in action however, then you are in for a real treat. This game is absolutely brutal and you will see why! There were a few misplays but don't let that detract from the fact that in all three games you're about the watch, the world was absolutely against us! Watch on as Grey, Megabyte, and Moose struggle to rid the world of the deadly diseases laid out before us on this episode of IGC Tabletop!

Ald replied the topic: Arche Age

Each Faction is composed of two of the four races and has its own continent. The western continent, Nuia, is inhabited by the Elves and Nuians. The eastern continent, Haranya, is inhabited by the Harani and Firran. To play with your friends, you'll need to belong to the same faction, else they'll always be aggressive to you and you won't even understand their chat... so you're limited to picking between two of the four races.

Later on, it'll be possible to create your own faction, at which point you and your friends can play together even as normally opposing races, but it could be a very, very long time before we see many accessible player-made factions around to choose from, so it's a much better idea to stick to the same faction if you want to play together.



I'm playing Nuian of course cause furries scare me.

If you're Nuian you can't play with the figurative "us." The guild is being made on east so you'd have to be Haranyan or Firran. If you wish to be Nuian or Elvan, you're playing on the opposite faction than we're trying to make here at IGC.

We're not planning to RP, we knew it was an RP server coming into it but it's also the mature player/less hardcore PVP server becaaaaaaause:

Ollo: unofficial filipino/oceanic server hardcore PVP server popular with lots of competition, as well
Kyrios: unofficial hardcore PVP server and very popular/lots of competition
Salphira: unofficial Brazilian server (no one wants to play with them, as a Portuguese I can attest to this)
Aranzeb: unofficial hardcore PVP/Spanish community server
Tahyang: unofficial RP/mature server
Edit: forgot about Naima.. it has the hodgepodge

I had no idea that faction was selected until May just told me. When and where was this discussed or posted about? I have no desire to play a furry or an Asian character so Nuian or Elven are my only options.

As far as RP is concerned the server choice is perfect for me. I don't have much interest in PVP but hopefully the server is mature enough to keep the psychopaths away.

Furry + RP is just asking for trouble.

There was no discussion as no one took the lead on this to organize said discussion. I knew Murlona was going to play and asked her if she wanted to hold onto a casual guild for this and she agreed. So whatever she decided was what it was going to be. Not knowing myself how the factions worked I could not have really setup such a discussion. My apologies.

Ya pretty much agree with the sentiment with the others an RP server isn't making me want to play this game anymore than I already am feeling meh about it. :dry: Honestly by the time my queue popped I had lost complete interest in playing the game. I am pretty sure if I dislike it more than Wildstar which I was really wanting to like that my longevity in this game is pretty non existent. May you gonna need a new lvling buddy man =p I seriously would play wow with more interest at this point, which says a lot. :silly:

None of us have been able to play much with these 3 hours queues every evening. It's every server though, even the two new ones.

I had left Tahyang because I missed the land grab and there didn't seem to be enough interest here so I didn't feel the need to be tied there. The decision for Tahyang came during that weird time on the first day where Ollo, Salphira, and Kyrios were already looking to be packed, and Naima and Tahyang were the lowest pop servers at the time. This was before Inoch, then the next couple of days, Enla.

I'm on Enla, now, I never got my original founder pack item with daru chests and my labor point regen is broken but I still have patron status to get through the queues faster. The wait times for queues is still bad as Hank is having to wait a couple of hours for login, still, too.

Honestly I liked Tahyang because while "lolololol RP server," it's better than dealing with "HUEHUEHUE BR" all day o_o;

I hear people are on Lucius now, I hope the queues are better there for everyone. There's a lot of people who will abandon their houses and ships on their servers to get on a low queue server, but it's also going to take at least a day for people to delete their old characters to get onto this new server.

Obviously the survey data indicated RP is the way to be.

Lucius on average has been having around 30 min queues as apposed to the 4-6 hours queues on Tahyang. I actually have no issue with RP servers, as you said, they're better than the alternatives. I dunno why people seem to be turned off by them.

I also don't know how involved i'll be in this game, if at all. The focus on zerg guilds and PVP with the lack of any real PVE is a real turnoff for me. I'd be all over it if there was a PVE server but i understand why there isn't one.
