Warrior Nation Metro - Issue #26 - April 6th 2008

Letter from the editor:
Barely two weeks into my new ECJ job they decide to put me to the test. Though I can safely state that I am extremely nervous, having to preform in front of so many.
We've got a nice amount of reports this week, which is always a good thing. Though various in length, they are all good and enjoyable to read. I hope you will all enjoy reading them as much as I had.

WNxJ4K3R - Albatross18
Long ass reports! That is all I got to say. Even though he only provides reports for his section every two to three weeks they are always packed to the the max with information. He has been around CJD just as long as WNxJokazWild has been. In fact he joined one day after him. This one as well has won featured report for his outstanding writing skills. He has also manage to sign almost every single roll call. He is a great role model for other CJ's to look up to and therefore deserves the Ace Award. Congratulations.

WNxJokazWild - Warhawk - PS3
He has only been around for two months but man has this guy shown some major spunk. Along with signing everyone roll call and producing four top notch reports (1 being a featured report) this CJ has been one great asset to the RTS team and the CJD in general. He also keeps track of his own history! Walking around the CJD with an awesome personality and a smile on his face, this is one CJ that is very deserving of the prestigious Ace Award. Congratulations!

WNxHydra - Hydra has been in the clan for nearly two years. Anyone who crosses paths with him knows that he is friendly, relaxed, but takes things seriously. As a member he saw his section failing and as soon as he was promoted to Major the section kicked off again. This talent is a great quality and therefore he deserves to be a Bravo Force Colonel.
Story by WNxFallenAngel

WNxNyruu - In under a year he has made such an impact on the clan. He was a great MP for the Graphics Department and treated the job with respect. He knows how things run and has always been supportive to GAT. He helps out in his sections and really tries to improve them. His work is much appreciated and he also deserves Bravo Force Colonel.

Set Two Delayed in North America...Again

The highly anticipated release of card set two in North America has been pushed back to an undisclosed date. The original date for release was sometime in February 2008, and it was pushed to March 28th in February. Three days before release, Sony announced that the release would again be pushed back to an unknown date at this point in time. The set was delayed due to shipping issues, and it is rumored the cards will come out in mid to late April. Persons in the rest of the world are currently getting their new cards, but in a limited quantity. Hopefully people in North America will get their new cards soon so they do not fall behind in the game.

Section Tournament Decided

The long running section wide tournament is now complete. The first few rounds were a little rocky, with many matches not being completed due to members not showing up to participate. The later rounds were much better, with many heated confrontations. The final round pitted WNxDozens and WNxHTGJONES in a grudge match. WNxDozens had beaten WNxHTGJONES before and he was out for revenge. In the end, WNxDozens defeated WNxHTGJONES 2-0. WNxDozens won a ton of ranking points and a custom Section Champion signature made by WNxJokazWild. Congratulations WNxDozens!!!

New Elemental Tournament

Rules are:

Best of 1
Everybody has 3 lives, for your 1st life you will be randomly given an element (fire, water, earth, wood), you must play with only this element and spells.
For your 2nd life you will be randomly drawn 2 elements, deck must be made up of any combination of the 2 plus spells.
For your final life you must play with a deck with a minimum of 20 bioliths.

This means its likely you will need to change your deck each week to match your element/s.

Finalist will gain 50 points, winner will gain 75 points for each life they have remaining.

This will give the members something to do while they wait for the Faction Wars to begin.

Screenshot/Recruitment Contest Complete

The month long screenshot/ recruitment contest has come to an end. The recruitment contest was won by WNxadz2k7 with six new recruits. WNxadz2k7 won a Scion, Biolith Lord card, as well as a Guardian Watchtower for his efforts in the recruitment contest.

The screenshot contest was to see how close you could get to decking out and still pull off a win. WNxhemicca came the closest with having zero cards left in his deck. His next turn he would have lost due to decking out, but he pulled out a victory in the game, and had an unbeatable entry for the screenshot contest as well. WNxhemicca won an entry in the history and a Flame Guard Recruit card for his screenshot.
The screenshot can be found: Here.

Age of Empires III

Asian Dynasties Patch 1.01 Released

The patch has finally arrived! After almost half a year this long awaited patch has finally been released on April 1st. This patch has balanced many things since the release of the game back in October. Thoroughly debated by section members, this patch has done many great changes but also some unnecessary ones. You can check out the section's debates here and here.

The RTSL

Its to my great regret to inform everyone that we will not be participating this season. The section is in a growing period and needs to focus more on recruiting and other section / clan events. The RTSL will see warrior nation again in the future there is no doubt about that. The section will come back stronger and more prepared than past seasons and blow everyone out of the water.

The Battle of the Titans

The Age of Empires III section is geared up and ready to roll out! It will be difficult at first as we are without a Grand Master or Battle Ops but we will prevail. The section shall prove to everyone that last season was not a fluke. We put our sweat and blood into that tournament and we will do the same this time around and come out victorious! It is an honor to still wear the tags bearing 1st place and I don't feel like I need to take it off, if you catch my drift.

Happy Belated Birthday WNxMystery34221, WNxDavott, WNxprincesskagome, WNx master blaster, and WNxBlaCkMaJyK!

I’d like to start this edition of the Albatross18 Metro with some Happy Belated Birthday’s! WNxMystery34221 turned 20 years old on March 20th, WNxDavott turned 15 on March 28th, WNxprincesskagome turned 26 on March 30th, WNx master blaster turned 39 and WNxBlaCkMaJyK turned 18 on April 2nd! Happy Birthday everyone!

PS, I’m sorry it’s GameCube


Battle Ops Invasion!

Many of the Upper Echelons of the Battle Ops Dept. have invaded the Albatross18 section! Whether they become primary, secondary, or non-primary, it doesn’t matter to us, just so long as we have them! A lot used to be former members, but the BO has also decided that Albatross18 is the best game to play for a monthly Battle Ops Upper Ranks tourney!

Stay tuned for Battle Ops Tournament results…

Quit Rate Reduction Event!

A great event is happening in the world of Albatross18! It’s not some lame give-away event, or extra cash event… It’s the Quit Rate Reduction Event! Something every golfer in the world of Albatross18 hates is their quit rate. OGPlanet, the North American manager of Albatross18 realized that, and they have created this special event to help people reduce their rates as much as possible! Once you get below a 5% quit rate, your avatar beside your name acquires a pair of wings! They look cool, but they also show who plays more and who is a better player (sort of).
A picture of the new chatroom layout can be found here.

The normal layout of names is on the right… the small blue or orange avatars are the ones that show if you have below 5% quit rate or not

Here they are magnified (sorry about the terrible quality)


Congrats to WNxKeV on graduating!

On a Real Life related issue (*GASP* A member has a life?!?!), lets all give a big round of applause to WNxKeV. A fairly new member, but he has had a great impact on our section already, providing us with even more pictures on the upcoming Season 4 (Review by WNxKeV) and just being a great player and a fun member to play with. But today, even though we are around 1 week late, lets all congratulate WNxKeV on graduating from high school!

A feat in itself, we honour your accomplishment, and a whole whack of us, including myself, will join you later this year! Congrats again!

Congrats to WNxamras on his first Hole in One!

It is a moment that all golfers dream of. Pros and amateurs alike share this one dream; to make a Hole in One (better known as a HIO in Albatross18). Now, many of the more experienced members are making at least one HIO a round, and people are celebrating their 100th HIO (congrats to WNxChloe on 100th HIO on March 18th, 2008). But in this article, on behalf of the WNx Albatross18 section, I would like to congratulate WNxamras for his first ever HIO!
A picture can be found here.

Now there is only more to come from this nub-sauce! Congrats again mate!

Hall of Fame Updated!

Our brand new Hall of Fame is not so brand new anymore! We had our first updates on scores added this week! Let’s get these scores lowered and added guys!

Once again, increasing numbers!

Click the image to open in full size.
After last month’s great performance on the Roll Call, most of the section was anticipating either a major slow down in recruiting, or even a small decline in members. In grand fashion, however, we even further increased our numbers! We did lose a few members to other sections, and one to Dishonorable Discharge, but we made sure that everyone who was lost was not so much “replaced”, but more so the numbers were restored. We will miss those who left us, but we also welcome even more members to the clan, largely due to WNxSandMaster! I’m still waiting for him to get his Medal of Achievement 15+, and I know that by the end of 2008, if he keeps this recruitment drive up, he will have a Medal of Achievement 30+! Keep up the great work guys!

Two new Field Ops Captains and searching for an EU Battle Ops Captain!

WNxDix joins her husband, WNxGenLee in the Field Ops position of Albatross18, making them the second couple who are both officers in the Albatross18 section (WNxKiTtY and WNxSandMaster are the first). WNxClash joins the Clubhouse after switching from a Secondary position to a Primary exactly 2 weeks after joining Primary! Congrats to both of you, and lets get some exciting events happening!

We, the officers of Albatross18 have realized that with out ever growing numbers, and the locations of some members, that we need a second Battle Ops Captain! This one will be from the EU to help with European, African, Asian, and Australian players getting to clan events!

Stay tuned for more promotions…

Battle of the Titans is coming!

BoTT Banner: [Click]

After entering into the highly regarded RTS Genre competition, better known as the Battle of the Titans (BoTT), our section activity is starting to pick up incredibly (like it really needed more activity! ). We are now hosting a tournament (or 2 or 3) every night of the week, and the officers are discussing a special Smacktorium Sectional Challenge (more on this in the next issue). We are Albatross18, and we will prevail as the number 1 RTS section in Warrior Nation!

Section History undergoing Maintenance

Click the image to open in full size.

Due to the return of school after March Break and a major 3000 word AP History essay on the Stalin Purges of the Red Army, there has been a considerable delay on the updating of the history. Please stay tuned to the next few issues of the WN Metro for further updates on the situation.

Ace Reporter Awarded!

It was one of the stepping stones of his greatest dreams for WNxJ4K3R. Since he joined WN in late May of 2007, he had always wanted to be a Combat Journalist. After this dream was realized, thanks in large part to WNxKomatsu and the rest of the Albatross18 section, he was pumping out reports every other week (not enough material happened in 1 week, so to produce reports to the best of his ability, he reports every other week). He joined the Combat Journalist Dept. in late January of 2008, and has since proved a good choice to be the CJ of Albatross18. However, his true skill would be realized in the month of March of 2008. His report in WN Metro # 22 won him the esteemed Featured Report of the issue. After he won this award, which he felt that report wasn’t to the best of his ability, as it was rushed (he thinks he did a great job, just not as good as it should have been, in retrospect). So he decided to make his next report THE BEST he would write since he joined the CJD. In the WN Metro # 24, his report didn’t win the Featured Report, but received many high accolades from many members, even other CJ’s. Finally, on April 1st, also known as April Fool’s Day, he was not pranked by the CJD, but won his second award of the Dept., the prestigious Ace Reporter Award. Congrats Jake!

Report of the Month awarded to WNxFatality!

Although he is not a primary or secondary member, he spends a lot of time in our forums, and he is usually attending our Weekly Invitational, like a primary member would. I’d just like to congratulate him on winning the well-regarded award of Battle Operations Report of the Month! Congrats mate! As a Commissioner who evaluated all the reports, yours stood out the most. Well earned!

Golf joke of the week!

A couple of elderly gents were golfing when one said he was going to Dr. Taylor for a new set of dentures in the morning. His friend remarked that he had gone to the same dentist a few years before.
"Is that so?" the first said. "Did he do a good job?"
"Well, I was playing yesterday when the fellow on the ninth hole hooked a shot," he said.
"The ball must have been going 200 mph when it hit me in the groin.... and that was the first time in two years my teeth didn't hurt."

The Battle for Middle Earth II

Elimination Tourney - Second Round

The second part of the Elimination tourney has started. With a quite small number of 8 players, this part includes 4 pairs, and the winners are going to play the semi-finals. The results will be posted in the further reports. Until then, good luck to all that participated and may the best player win!

Screenshot Of The Week Winner #2

This week's Screenshot Of The Week winner is WNxDragonDisciple. He had a wonderful picture, taken at the gamenight. Upgraded Goblins, Fire Drakes and burning Orcs. This is truly the best screenshot of this week. Congratulations Dragon! Here is the picture:

Replay Of The Month (March) Winners

March's ROTM winners are WNxPatchaxx and WNxDragonDisciple. They had a very good game vs Unr3al, a known clan on Clanwars.cc. Mordor (Patchaxx) and Dwarves (Dragon) vs Goblins and Men. They had some problems at the beginning of the game and during it, but they managed to do a better teamwork, and finally defeated their enemies. Congratulations guys!

'For Lord And Land! DEAAATH!'

March Clan Wars results are absolutely brilliant! Our section reached a glorious rank #6, from a total of more than 200 clans. This rank is the best in the last 6 months, and the second best in our history.

This picture shows how close we have been to reach Top 5. We had 10,759 points, the greatest number of points we have ever had.

Here are the players that brought glory to our section. The biggest number of points was won by WNxPatchaxx, which managed to get us on the 6th place in the last minutes.

Congratulations all, and keep it up!

Biggest April Fools Joke Of Our Section

While thinking about how to use my words in the report, informing the awful news that WNxBrainHacker told us, that the ClanWars were out of funds and it would soon be closed, I checked the thread again and saw that it was just a joke, for April fools joke. Most of us didn't think for a second that it could be a joke, and we were really released when we saw that. Good one Brain, it was a really good one!

Battle Of The Titans Is Back Again

Last time when this tourney took place, we managed to reach top 3, and be the bronze winners of the competition. This time, we are expecting at least the same performance that we had had in the first edition, and all of us will give our best to play CW, to have Smacks, to be in a great number at the gamenights and to participate on the section tourneys that we will soon have. Come on guys, let's do a good job!!!

EA Tourney - 3rd and 4th Rounds

Good news. 2 of our 3 members made it to the 4th round. That's me (WNxArag00rn) and WNxTermplars1102 (WNxHoundofChaos). WNxtheimmortal couldn't come. The bad news is that I will have to play vs Templars in the 4th round, but again, the new good news is that we will have a member in round 16.
Final result between WNxArag00rn and WNxTemplars1102... after a crazy game, the luck was on Templars' side, so he managed to destroy both my builder and base, and automatically win the game, despite of my great army.
WNxTemplars will be playing against one very good player, so with really small chances to qualify for the Semi-final, but 'There is always hope!', so we can never know! If he has the same luck and the same brightness as he had in the 4rd round, he may beat his opponent.

Call of Duty 2 (EU)

E-dom Matches

Last week’s match was played and won by us, we played against |26|5th|. The members who took on this clan were Doggerdaz, Gorn, Reli, Tr1xxy and Jamesy. Their training and tactics paid off and they managed to pull it off and won the match 13-7, well done guys.

Click the image to open in full size.

Because this week’s match takes place on a Sunday, the results will be shown in the next Call of Duty 2 report, but the members are already training for the match and practicing their tactics. Our opponents will be [TDAC], so good luck to the people who are playing this time and we hope you win.

Bash Event

WNxSquealer had set up a bash event for us on the first of April. There were around 10 people on the server and on TeamSpeak, we all had a lot of fun. Although PunkBuster went crazy and kept kicking people for 5 minutes, we still managed to have a good time and enjoy ourselves. Our other captain WNxGorn was the winner on both maps, Carentan and Toujane.

Click HERE for more information.

New Ladder

Seeing as we’re playing on one all weapons ladder, our BO Captain WNxDoggerdaz signed us up on TWL, there’s a new rifles only ladder and there are already 30 clans signed up, we hope to do well on this ladder. Our team is called WNx-Elites, so watch out for us. Here's a chance for our rifles only players to prove themselves as the best.

Click HERE for more information.

New Competition

We haven’t had many competitions since the FPS Challenge so our captain Doggerdaz decided to create a new one, it’s a 2vs2 competition. It’s going to be a knockout competition so it’ll be fun and exciting. Several people have signed up already and we hope that more people are going to do so. The mod we’re going to use is the TDM CB 2vs2 mod and the maps will vary per round. Good luck to everyone and may the best team win.

Caption Contest #4!

A new caption contest! Although voting should have already begun our beloved BO captain WNxDavott has gone on a holiday to Ireland, so I cannot give you all the entries yet!
The topic can be found here.

Look out!

Rumors have spread of some programs that improve your gameplay were infected with Keyloggers, unfortunately they seem to be true.
Our beloved friend and my boss WNxFallenAngel was one of the victims of these hackers that use the CD-Keys for testing hacks.

Quote from Evenbalance:

Evenbalance have responded to the evidence we submitted with a refusal to lift the Global GUID bans and will continue to kick & ban for this violation. Their explanation basically tells us that ALL the GUIDS they have banned have at some point been used to cheat with a private paid for hack, but not necessarily by those people who are banned here on GV. A keylogger is involved so many of you are victims of CD-key theft.

So everyone! Look out with 3rd party programs!

Call of Duty 4 (NA)

No New Maps for PC?

Various threads have been posted about new maps coming out for Call of Duty 4, but apparently the PC version will not be getting any. This leaves a lot of our members disappointed, since almost everyone was waiting for new maps.

If you want to support us, please do sign this petition so they put new maps on the PC.

Thanks for your help everyone!

TWL!

Once again this was a very busy week for us in TWL. Unfortunately, we went 1-3 this week. We lost 2 Sabotage matches, as well as 1 loss in the S&D Ladder, but we managed to win our TDM match.

These losses means more training sessions, and better communications between our members. We hope to have some really good training this week, so that next week we can turn this thing around, and get back to our winning ways.

Wish us luck!

C&C Renegade

Click the image to open in full size. Section closing down

Last week Hydron came with a shocking announcement. The C&C Renegade Section, which had been alive and kicking since January 2002, would be immediately shut down due reasons that could not be disclosed! Many members of Warrior Nation have their roots in C&C Renegade so this news sure came as a shock. Well, until people realized what date it was . April Fools!

But not any longer! Tiger has finally beaten this record and can officially name herself the longest running Renegade AS ever. Here's a list of all the amazing C&C Renegade records, enjoy!

He would usually draw on past experiences to squash these fears, but he had none to go on, as today was his first interview.

Unfortunately I still haven't been able to create a video of last month’s DeathMatch V2 event. Reason for that is that my recorded footage from fraps isn't working properly at the moment. I'm currently looking into it, but for now the movie is stuck around 60%. Sorry! Instead of showing my video I'll show you one created by Westwood. This is the first in a series of ten promotional videos for C&C Renegade, so grab some popcorn and lay back while you view this short but sweet video!

1 vs. 1 Tournament

The 1 vs. 1 tournament has finish and we have our winners. It was a long two weeks for the 15 competitives that signed up playing non-stop trying to get them selves ready for their match. Unfortunately 6 competitives got kicked out in the first round. In the second round WNxRevolution and WNxRaidz got a bye and WNxF-Ram and WNxBamb1 versed each other and also WNxTrane had to verse WNxItalianStallion. Unfortunately WNxF-Ram and WNxTrane lost which made the winners advance to semi final. In the semi final WNxRevolution forfeited his match with WNxBamb1 which left WNxRaidz and WNxItalianStallion. On the 23rd of March they had their match and WNxItalianStallion won over WNxRaidz 16-3.
Five days later WNxBamb1 and WNxItalianStallion got into a server together and decided to have the grand final right there, right then so they did. The map they choose to have the Grand final on was cs_Bloodstrike and WNxBamb1 led the first half 12-3. In the second half WNxBamb1 only need 4 round wins to win the Grand final and the 1 vs. 1 Tournament. WNxBamb1 won the second half 4-2 and he won the grand final 16-5.
Congrats WNxBamb1 and good try WNxItalianStallion

WNxRandom decided that we should get the S.W.A.T back and up and running but we had no one to fill its ranks so WNxRandom posted a thread saying "S.W.A.T Tryouts." WNxRandom decided that we should have it on 7th and 8th of March which we did and many turned up.
On the 20th of March the S.W.A.T Team was released and eight lucky fellas got chosen. The lucky eight were WNxRevolution, WNxBamb1, WNxItalianStallion, WNxF-Ram, WNxRaidz, WNxCol, WNxSexyBaby and lucky last WNxlucifer.

Dystopia



FPS QC Winners: Gold Medal

The commanding officer was on deck. He carried Cyberdeck, Smartlocks and a Can of Whoop-ass. His name is WNxAwp666. The note in his hand was a Nation wide competition with money, reputation, and fame taped to it like a victory flag. To his many loyal mercenaries gathered he said, "Over the next two months I am going to push you guys like never before, to capture our next objective. The FPS Quarterly Challenge. We may not have as big of a community, nor the player base, nor the popularity that others are graced with. However, I believe in you guys. I believe that you guys are the best section I can ever have. And I'm proud of you guys. So lets get to work." Deckers jacked into cyberspace and flew down the twisting maze of cybertubes to spread WNxAwp66's message.

Over the months January and February the section was the most active I've ever seen it. Some of the best pubbers in Dystopia joined our section. Pada, Osa, Galaxy, Donkey, and others. An honorable mention goes to WNxDolomite for being on Ventrilo nearly every night to organize our members to get in the server for extra FPS QC points. Second honorable mention is all the members of the WNx Dystopia Section for getting in gear, teaming up, and kicking ass.

This has been a great event by the Battle Ops of Warrior Nation. Thanks goes out to DaPope, Jamal, and DarkAngel.

I encourage all of other sections to take part in your own QC when the time comes around.


FPS QC II Cool down: Dystopia Death Match Colloseum III

After our exciting flurry of activity over the few months during the FPS QC, the section was still pumped up and their blood thirst lead to the Major and Captains opening up our section's Third Dystopia Death Match Colloseum. Originally conceived by WNxNinjabane during his time as BO captain, the competitors test their skill against one another one-on-one. They play the best of 5 rounds per class whoever wins three rounds in that class wins that class. Three kills in two classes is the winner of the match. This time around we aren't doing grudge matches. A ladder has been implemented this time around and let me tell you. We've had some great matches so far. We didn't even need to go into the semi-finals for some great matches with extraordinary players being matched up so early in the Colloseum. WNxOAT vs WNxHorrorOfYid, WNxNinjabane vs WNxBlarggy, and WNxAwp666 vs WNxPhrozn.

The top half of the ladder proceeded quickly after the start, progressing so far as into the semi-finals in the match WNxPhrozn vs WNxKluas. WNxPhrozn is well respected and renown for his mastery of the Grenade Launcher and other explosives, the demolition expert in other words. WNxKluas is the long time Field Ops Captain of the section specializing in the Assault Rifle and Cyberspace combat, an utterly useless skill in this competition, since this is full on meatspace combat. The match was an amazing test of brains, skill, and tactics.
For the people that lost there is a consolation bracket that will allow them to get back into the game and even have a shot at third place.


February Member of the Month for Dystopia

.:~ WNxDolomite ~:.
Click the image to open in full size.

Over the past month Dystopia section has pulled ahead in the FPS QC because of the dedication of its members. The member who shows the most dedication in leading the section to win the FPS QC this quarter and gets the officer’s vote for Dystopia section’s MotM is Dolomite. Every night he’s on Ventrilo and we have people playing, with a friendly, “Hey, we have enough to get a game night going.” He pulls out another 10 points for the section. Dolomite is known throughout the Dystopia community as a caring player towards newbies as well as the best minigun in the game. Many times when our members stack on one team with 5 –6 members, Dolo will take the other team and lead his pub team to victory against stacked odds. As minigun specialist from playing this game for two years, he knows how to command his team and get objectives done. The dedication Dolomite has to his section and to the game makes him our Member of the month.


Promoted BO Captain


WNxPhrozn is our new BO Captain after WNxOAT stepped down. WNxPhrozn is always found on our vent channel playing something. With his appointment the section has high hopes he can implement changes to bring Dystopia's game play competition up to the level that is an eye-catcher for a professional gaming league. He'll be working with Dystopia's other BO Captain WNxR3ach.


Warrior Nation Dystopia Training Construct

Dystopia is not like any other FPS. It is hard to master. Even our most experienced veterans playing for over two and a half years have not learned everything there is to the game. But they know enough to teach the newbies. Our section is first clan in the game to proudly present Dystopia's first newbie training server: WNx Training Construct | Training Nubs into Warriors. This puts a third WNx server on the server listings. We are aiming to lower Dystopia's learning curve and increase the mod's player base by giving the newbies a friendly environment to play in without being slaughtered on a normal pub. The community has welcomed this change, often this server and our pub are the only two Dystopia servers filled in the world. We've had several great training sessions with newbies learning from our members as well as a few regular pubbers.

Over time with more instructors we post a tutor schedule with the times when trainers will be on the server to teach people. WNxDonkeyHeadedAdversery is our first official trainer for the Training Construct. He is also creating a web page for the server and has graced us with a preview of his work.

A New CJ
Quote:
In the land of Rokia, on the continent country of Saintmorning; a lone knight fingered a small seed. "How odd", he thought aloud, "that such a seed becomes a large and majestic tree."
"Then that lone tree becomes a large forest." a voice replied. A powerfully built warrior, wielding twin wicked-looking swords, sighed and plopped himself down.
"Hai, DakX." The knight smiled.
"Same to yourself."
They turned back to the clouds, lazily spinning across the sky.
DakX broke the ensuing silence.
"You know, Things have been getting pretty busy lately."
"Yes, I've noticed."
"And I could always use another person to lead under me, interested?"
The knight laughed.
"Are you sure you're interested in an old knight like me?"
The blade got up and reached out his hand.
"As damn sure as I'll ever be."

During this two week period, WNxDakX has become the new ECJ. In doing so he opened up applications for WNxFlyFF CJ position After the deadline had been passed, The CJ was chosen, and it turned out to be myself, WNxKannade . I hope to continue to make good reports of the FlyFF section!

FlyFF gets an April Fools Too
A couple Days ago orinj posted an outrageous seeming post about new changes coming to FlyFF and its players. It caused quite an upset as many people did not catch the joke.
He later relented in another thread:
Quote:
hello friends,

A let me start by saying i'm sorry. i tried to have a little fun and overstepped my boundaries and as a result i must now leave you.

first -
my post yesterday was solely my own doing. i did not represent aeonsoft nor did i represent gala-net when i did this. so again, i am solely at fault.

second -
i didn't mean to hurt any your feelings. i just thought it being april 1 in korea, it might be appropriate... but what i didn't appropriate was what i've been accused of as being "misrepresentation". sorry, the rest is legal jargon that i can't decipher.

third -
it's been nice serving you guys... i've really just been the 'behind the scenes' GM and whatnot... so nice knowing ya'll and thanks Gala-Net for i guess... everything.

- orinj
This was April Fools joke as well--the title of his apology was "A Dear Spoof Killjoy", which is an anagram

Guild Wars - An Ever-Green Game with constant updates of new areas, new weapons etc

Fact or Fiction?

This week was an interesting week for Guild Wars players – there is the prospect of a new market place introduced into the game. We have no idea what it is yet but whatever this new update will be it will be sure to cause a stir as it adds to what is continuously a growing game. We hope we are looking at a dedicated market place – it would make power trading, buying and selling a major part of the game as it stands at the moment there are about 3-4 trading places in the game, and with the cross over of many servers and countries it would be nice to have one place where everyone can gather around.

At this stage we are just hoping...

Award winning Designers' weapons up for Grabs

This week we also saw the introduction of 3 new weapon skins – a product of the weapon design contest held for the game by ArenaNet. This is the 2nd lot after a instant hit with the 1st wave of weapon skins. Hopefully we will be looking at a 4th!.

Farewell Gaile and Congratulations to your new Position!

Also just around the corner we can expect yet ANOTHER event. This time it's in honor of one of the Games GM, Gaile Grey – an informant of some type. She has a habit of leaking juicy gloss to members that are quick to find her. Beware your frame rate may drop significantly though. As questions are fired at her, she gets ready to answer them.

At this point in time it appears as if she is getting ready to move on. So why not throw a party – more party drops for those looking to increase their titles and yet another excuse to hang out with the Family members.

Note: The Developers of Guild Wars pay close attention to the development and balance of the game. Guild Wars gets very frequently updates with new contents, events and skills. Most importantly, it comes at zero costs for players. Additionally, Guild Wars unique online data streaming system ensures that there is no server downtime and you can play the most updated version of the game any time you wish.

You also gain the unique ability: "Print screen: By pressing the print screen button you'll receive a screenshot which, when published for all of the Warrior Nation and the internet to see, allows you to humiliate or honor people as you wish." AKA 'The Power Is Yours!'

Last but not the least you receive a cool journalist tag. :O So I dare anyone who likes writing to try this chance. This wonderful thing called army ended my reign as an ECJ, I'm hoping to see another one rise from this section someday.

If you feel like trying the job as a CJ, but worry that you might not live up to the expectations, then it's my opinion that you should just go for it and show your best in the application. The application is the most important part of your CJ'ing career, it will also have an effect after you are accepted.
So invest as much time as reasonably possible in the application
A tip is to supplement the application with a top-graded essay you wrote as an assignment for school or anything else.

I'm always here if you have any questions, just ask me over xfire/msn So don't be shy or afraid, go for the position, you'll never know how it turns out, but I can assure you it'll be a positive outcome !

Goodluck to all of you
As expected, words of wisdom from all of our honorable past Combat Journalists who have tolled tirelessly for the Family. Thank you all.

Ragnarok Online: Sakray

11.3: New and Improved

Click the image to open in full size.
Paolo, a level 70 swordsman NPC mercenary, joining WN in WoE.

Tuesday, April 1st brought the newest Ragnarok Online Episode 11.3 - The Nameless Island patch to the Sakray test server for some serious debugging. Along with a new city and dungeon areas, sixty-four new weapons and armor to choose from, a Mercenary System, and a new War of Emperium event, Sakrayans were busy exploring the darker side of being a test server. With hours of server downtime to fix non-functional quests and other minor issues, many of us were caught twiddling our thumbs in frustration for the first few days. While the worst of server maintenance seems to be over, many in the section are still working out the kinks with controlling the new mercenaries, who can be hired in different level increments, with the larger level caps requiring high reputation points earned with using lower class mercenaries. With the discovery of these new killing NPCs working in the guild versus guild event, War of Emperium, the wide use of mercenaries are surely to be more prominent as section members build up more reputation points.

WN Sakrayans has their first joint opportunity to fully experience the new War of Emperium maps Friday night, as they assisted allies in defense of a Rachel town castle. These new maps, roughly twice the size of normal guild castle areas, are equipped with more powerful Guardian NPCs and equipped with a new defense system that requires multiple defense points to ensure castle retention. Future participation in these new war events are being carefully considered, as much larger guild numbers than we currently employ are needed to staff most sections of the castles, and fast footed Guardians who are usually pulling one hit kills on intruders are successfully keeping many players at bay.
Despite the learning curve, WN was the first guild to conquer a new War of Emperium castle as they came online Tuesday afternoon, thanks to a thoughtful and spunky ally. Extra thanks to Lone of Final Retribution, who helped brave the hundreds of monsters in a newly spawned castle to grab a piece of real estate for us!

Seven Hearts: finally the long awaited patch is almost ready! With a new planet, new mobs, and new items, it should be good, as long as it doesn’t get pushed back another month. There’s also a small patch which should be coming out very soon to tide everyone over until the big one is fully ready.

Arua Rose: With yet another big patch just around the corner, the community is getting excited! Within a few weeks v810 will be released on Arua, introducing Eldeon clan field, clan beach, second floor in Temple, brand new arua points system, and a bunch of new items for the community to enjoy.

Ruff Rose: After a few database problems, ruff rose is back up and running! Patch v778 is supposed to be released sometime this week (3/31-4/6). In the patch preview thread they mention many bug fixes, skill fixes, Eldeon clan field updates, drop table updates, a late but fun looking Easter event, and more!

All in all, it’s looking exciting for everyone.

Don’t you love holidays

(I mean really, any holiday that I wake up and find a bunch of my favorite candy in a basket has my vote). Both Arua Rose and Seven Hearts had events planned out for Easter, both simple, but they were indeed fun.

Seven Hearts: Three words, Hide and Seek. The GM’s have been very busy with working patches lately, so they didn’t really have enough time to come up with a major event, so we all joined in and searched for the missing bunny (I got to be the bunny a few times!). The lovely GMs and Mods who hosted the events (Longstorm, Ceresia, Waltz, and Toraxa) had us running around for 14+ rounds to find the lost bunny. The first two who found it got their names entered in a raffle for an exclusive seven hearts item. Around round six or seven the double exp event kicked in, and went on for a few days. Longstorm also had mini spawning events in between his rounds that he was hosting.

Arua Rose: The GMs for Arua were also very busy with patch projects, so they just ended up doing an Easter Madness event on the low rate server Destiny. They raised the drop, zuly, and exp rates from March 19th till the 23rd.

Recruiting Spree


It has been hard for us lately trying to get people to come to raids and people haven't been showing up after signing up for them. A solution has come our way. There were some underlying conflicts within another guild on our server called Feralis. One of our officers, WNxKira, has been in contact with some of the officers in Feralis and managed to gather a few key players that wanted to come join Warrior Nation. Here is the list of newcomers that are needed of a welcome:
Tunoddezalg, Sunderr, Griefsavior, Biggboii, Hadean, and Malfest. This is only a taste of what is in store for us to come.

Raiding Update


Our raiding has been slightly slowed due to our recruiting and schedule changes but we have been planning some fun raids lately such as Blackwing Lair, Molten Core, and AQ40. It is like a small vacation for us or a bonding experience for the new guildies. With these new people that have joined us, we will be able to fill raids a lot easier and get back on track.
