I’ve been playing with some WoW friends and some real friends. Our GM created a vent channel, and its seeing some action. Custom maps are a blast, and I’m slowly developing the skills to be half decent at this game.
My friend over at Pugnacious Priest already talked about Nexus Wars, and I’ve been loving it. I’ve also been playing Income Wars and Battlecraft, although the map for Battlecraft appears to have wandered away.
The biggest challenge of 5v5s seems to be scheduling. We can put together an amazing team and still get in only a few hours a week. You can’t hit 2200 with a few hours a week. That’s the bottom line.
Is it just me, or are serious PvPers more flaky than raiders? The certainly tend to put more emphasis on individual skill over team efforts.
Yes, we’re still doing it. We threw a 10 player group together last night that got a few hard modes done with some people who had never seen them. I forget that our guild is much farther progressed than most of the server. We’re an establish and strong core of talented players, even if there are a few guilds who have more boss kills than us. Its easy to evaluate a guild based exclusively on boss kill progression, but I feel like that leaves something out.
Those are my un-constructed thoughts for patch day. I intent to (and have partially written) three new posts for later this week. My work schedule will dictate the pace at which they get posted.
