World of Warships - Come Earn A FREE Tier II BattleshipThu 7th July 2016 9:34am EDT    
Hi everyone!

Last month the folks at War Gaming offered two free Tier V Battleships for completing a series of quests. If you took the time to do both quest lines you earned a free KONGO Class Battleship for each of the two quest lines along with a free port slot each. The ships are part of the Fog Fleet and are available for pickup in the port of Yokosuka.

This month the folks at War Gaming are offering the first Tier II Battleship in the game named the MIKASA. To earn this grand lady of the fleet you'll need to complete five quest lines where you'll be asked to destroy 10 warships, then 20 warships, followed by 30 warships, then another 40 warships and finally 50 warships. That comes out to 150 warships that need to be sent to the bottom of the sea. Once you've done this you'll be the proud owner of the MIKASA along with a free port slot. Unless you're an ACE on the high seas you'll want to get started on this as soon as possible. Your chance to own this grand lady expires at the end of July.

If you've never played World of Warships and would like to give it a try click on the below link. It's free to play and loads of fun. http://worldofwarships.com/

See you out on the water!

Cheers,
Ziri

Fallout 4 - Exciting Times AheadFri 13th May 2016 3:52am EDT    
FAR HARBOR DLC



The new Far Harbor DLC releases on 19 May and will give players the largest land area ever added by any Bethesda DLC. Join forces with your old friend Nick Valentine to journey to Far Harbor, Maine on a rescue mission that will land you in a new world of extreme feral monsters, the clutches of the Children of Atom cult, and more.

SURVIVAL MODE

If you are ready to play Fallout 4 again and want more of a challenge, the new Survival Mode may be for you. It will disable mods, console cheats, and force you to live by your wits as you fight thirst, disease, exhaustion, and hunger while facing new challenges. Your choices will matter far more because the only way you can save your game is by finding a place to sleep and recover from exhaustion. See, https://bethesda.net/#en/events/game/fa ... 6/03/29/96

BETHESDA.NET MODS

Bethesda Studios has opened up mods via Bethesda.net at https://mods.bethesda.net/#en/workshop/fallout4. Currently there are over 1100 new mods available.

$40,000 MOD CONTEST

NVidia has teamed up with Bethesda Studios to promote Bethesda.net mods and coming release of the Creation Kit with a contest offering prizes for the best new mods to be published to Bethesda.net. Details are at https://bethesda.net/#en/events/game/nv ... /05/10/122 and at https://contests.nvidia.com/en-us/fallout4modcontest. If you are a big fan of the game and like to tweak the game with mods, this contest may be for you. Top prize is $10,000 with a ton of goodies. There are many prizes to be awarded including several cash prizes. Go for it. Mods must be submitted prior to 3 July. (Requires installation of the Creation Kit)

FUTURE OF MODDING IN FO4

Currently most of the mods to the game are available on third party sites like http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/? which has over 10,000 Fallout 4 game mods. Right now they are still available to use, but it is unclear whether mods from external sites will continue to be available indefinitely. There is some thought that modding may become exclusive to Bethesda.net at some future point.

CAUTION WITH MODS

Always make a hard save before adding a new mod Be aware that some mods may change key game files and some will become baked into your save files, meaning that you can't completely uninstall them and may need to go to a save before the mod was installed if you run into problems with bugs introduced by a mod. Check comments on any prospective mod to see if there are issues with the mod.

The Repopulation Is On Hold & Fragmented To Be ReleasedTue 10th May 2016 6:33am EDT    
Hi Guildies!

For those of us who purchased The Repopulation (TR) in hopes of playing a Science Fiction MMORPG it appears we'll have to wait just a little bit longer. The game engine that TR was designed to run on has suffered some financial woes and the loss of a third party who was funding the project. This has caused the developers to put TR on the shelves while they migrate to a new game engine and a new game called Fragmented.

Fragmented is a PVP Survival game that will operate using the new game engine and use much of the coding originally developed for TR. Early Alpha testing began for Fragmented in January 2016 and copies of the game went directly into the libraries of Steam Users who purchased TR via Steam for FREE.

Current plans have the developers wiping the dust off of TR sometime during the upcoming months with a new and improved game using the same game engine from Fragmented. We can expect an early Alpha version of TR around December of 2016.

In the mean time, if you purchased The Repopulation via Steam you can check out Fragmented for FREE. This will give you an opportunity to get a feel for the game and some idea of what the MMORPG will look like when TR is eventually released.

Archeage Chapter ProgressTue 26th April 2016 12:54am EDT    
The Crimson Order's Archeage Chapter is proud to announce some recent developments in our chapter!

Firstly, the Archeage guild has reached level 5! This is an important milestone for us as not only does it reinforce us as one of the long-standing and active guilds in the game, but also gives all our members access to new gems and cloaks to further their gear development. Congratulations to everybody in the Archeage chapter for the time, effort and resources put in to make this goal a reality!

Also, we have finally completed construction of our upgraded Solzreed plaza! Some new features of the new plaza include a in-built Mirage portal, merchants to sell seeds, livestock etc. on the second floor, and a crest printer. In addition, along with our previous selection of crafting benches we have added a few more benches including a pet-armour workbench. The Solzreed Fellowship Plaza now has every crafting bench available in-game, making it the one-stop shop for all your crafting needs!

Camelot Unchained Beta DelayWed 20th April 2016 10:04pm EDT    
On its livestream yesterday, Camelot Unchained boss Mark Jacobs told backers and watchers that technical issues have delayed the start of beta, which was anticipated literally any day now and has been delayed once already (as was the alpha before it). Jacobs explained that CSE discovered its ability system was unable to properly handle the complicated skill and class design the team was throwing at it, necessitating a refactoring of the underlying ability code. We are going to be able to preserve a lot of the underlying code but have to change some aspects of it and the pipeline that an ability has to go through from button push to active in the game, he told us.

While its frustrating news, Jacobs believes the retooling will ensure faster deployment of new skills in the future and will positively influence the crafting system as well. He told us that while CSE could have opened beta now and fixed the problem later, the team prefers to launch a beta with the permanent ability system in place rather than try to sneak one past the backers.

Black Desert Online - 30 Days After LaunchTue 12th April 2016 11:06pm EDT    
Exciting First Month

It's been an exciting month since the launch of Black Desert Online (BDO). The fun started with the 96-hour pre-launch where we enjoyed a starting cadre of 19 eager participants chomping at the bit to get into the game and see what it had to offer. Since that time our roster has grown to 65 guild members and we are currently on a recruiting trek to add an additional 35 to top out our roster at an even 100. Things are looking very good for the BDO team but enough about rosters and numbers let's talk about what BDO has to offer.

Getting Started in BDO

BDO is a player vs. player MMO which offers a diversified platform for PVP and PVE enthusiasts alike. Unlike your traditional PVE MMOs there are no 5-man dungeons or 10-man raid groups but that doesn't mean there isn't something for the PVE enthusiast. The PVP portion of the game does not start until you hit level 45. When you do reach that level you, had better keep your head on a swivel, a spell at the tip of your tongue, and a sharp eye out for those who would swindle or PK you for your favorite grinding spot. So how do you level up from 1 to 50?

Questing Your Way Up To Fame and Fortune vs Grinding for Levels

Players level up in BDO either by grinding mobs until they reach a certain level then move to another location where they rinse and repeat. This is by far the fastest way to level but not necessarily the most beneficial and we'll see why shortly. The second way to level up is by completing quests which are offered at the starting town and continue throughout BDO. The benefit to doing the quests instead of grinding is the collection of Energy and Compensation Points along the way. Energy Points are required to hire workers, gain affinity and perform tasks in crafting. Compensation points are required to purchase buildings for crafting and lodging but also for connecting nodes for future trade routes and fishing. Another advantage to doing quests is the opportunity to expand inventory slots thus allowing more loot. From here let's jump into the crafting and professions systems offered in BDO.

You Can Be A Crafter and Trader

If crafting and trading is your forte, then you'll be pleasantly surprised by what BDO has to offer. The first opportunity to delve into the crafting arena happens in the coastal town of Velia. Be sure to have all quests toggled on to receive an introduction into how to hunt, cook, farm, make tools, trade, dabble in alchemy, make horse equipment, refine ore and raw materials, process lumber just to name a few. Oh, and get this, workers can be hired to craft your very own rafts, ferries and fishing boats. For those who have no interests in the high seas, then maybe taming wild horses and breeding them is up your alley. No matter what the profession there is a lot to experience and several ways to make money selling items on the market to create wealth needed to claim your fortune in BDO.

Honing Your Fighting Skills

Once characters hit level 50, the goal is to start the long grind for level 55. It's at this point where things get interesting. This is where we start to see both small and large scale guild vs. guild wars as each group seeks to grind the same resources for sought after loot to boost their overall stats. Consequently, it's easy to say there's not a spare moment when one guild or another isn't declaring war to dictate to everyone else their dominance in the game.

Interested? Join Us!

If this sounds like a game you'd like to try, contact the BDO recruiting team or ask any BDO officer for an invite to the game. Many of our members still have 7-day guest passes and are more than willing to share them. To obtain a 7-day guest pass go to the BDO Forums/Game Discussion/Guest Pass and leave a post.
