  • Tabletop Gameternoon 8.19.17 - Pandemic

    Tonight we revisit Pandemic, a game where four skilled agents try to rid the world of four terrible diseases all at the same time. It's a game of skill, luck, and patience to try and win Pandemic, especially on harder difficulties. We went with medium for this game (5 Epidemic cards in the deck) and it was a tough go! Will we rid the world of its plagues or succumb to the pox that has taken residence in our lands? Watch on for the full story and gameplay.

  • Tabletop Game Night 8.10.17 - Tyrants of the Underdark

    This evening we had a blast playing Tyrants of the Underdark, a relatively new game blending some old concepts together. TotU is an area control and deckbuilder game in one and we felt it does both pretty well! Wintertide had the most experience with this one but Moose had also played a number of games. Watch as the noobs battle the experienced in this single game of Tyrants. Who will win? You'll probably never guess...

  • Tabletop Gameternoon 8.5.17 - Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia

    This may very well be the longest episode of Tabletop ever. The game is Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia. The players are ready, sword, bow, or ...whatever else, in hand. We're gonna explore this dungeon, kill some bad guys, mess with each other a little bit, and hopefully it will all be over soon for someone. Watch as we do all those things including some late-game clutch play by Grey.

  • Tabletop Gameternoon 7.29.17 - Catan

    This Saturday afternoon's game was Catan (formerly known at Settlers of Catan). Jbot, Cappi, AIMonster, Grey, and Wintertide duke it out for the title of Supreme Leader of the Sheep. Watch as Ore exchanges hands for almost nothing and wood becomes the commodity to control! All of this and even some cussing on this episode of IGC Gamerternoon!

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.
