  1. Thanks for the update /no1 ^ is an eye opener tho, I was under the misconception that only Sanctuary heals the flag

    Oh, those are the Minorous, who for some mystical reason are either AFK, or really just doing their own thing, deserting BG included. Because honestly, if you're a deserter, you really are the worst non-team-player, right up there with the Crab who's boosting the enemy team (tho I don't think I've seen a guy like that yet, at least not here) Otherwise, that disappearing player got disconnected. If that's the case, let's not hold it against him, cause it could happen to anyone of us (yeah, i got DC in the middle of battle too and when I rejoined, I ended up in the other team, which actually won and for some reason I felt more guilty than lucky /swt

    /shy Thanks, Senpai. I'm sure we have a lot of creative players, you included, they just manifest in different ways. Tho, I must admit I'm out of topics now, except for the boring farming stuff...

    The BG Zodiac

    These are the people who make or break Battlegrounds. The Fire Starter. The brave (or bored) players who light the BG fire (or at least try) by being the first to @autobg or @joinbg They urge the rest of the playerbase to join, unfortunately, success is not guaranteed. This headstrong guy simply does what he wants in BG. Imagine trying to stop a rampaging bull in its tracks, that’s how reasonable this guy is. It’s not like he’s new to BG or doesn’t know the objectives, it’s just that he’s doing whatever and leaves his teammates mystified (‘cause it just doesn’t make sense @[email protected]) This also includes deserting his comrades mid-battle (but let's not judge lest it be a player who unwillingly got disconnected.) Who in their right mind leaves BG of their own volition anyway? /hmm… I suppose he’s just not a team player, let’s leave it at that. Duo queued or not these are the guys who are so synchronized they might as well share one brain. Sometimes it’s not just a pair but a group of them and you can practically taste the victory, just seeing how well they work together. But win or lose, these are the guys that inspire players to work as a team for the common goal and inflames the warrior within you to keep on fighting long after the UCA has dropped. The Cancer of BG. These are the guys who basically destroy the fun for other players. It could be anything from something as minor as syntax to their attitude and play-style, these kinds of guys drive you crazy enough to think about quitting the match. Here are some examples: Campers/Kill Farmers: Newbies beware. These are the guys who seem to have the uncanny ability to hone in on a flimsy target and dispatch them in a snap. They don’t go for any objective, assist, or anything; they’re just there to kill. Maybe it’s for the Gladiator, who knows? Traitors: The teammate who sabotages the team. This often happens accidentally due to position lag, bad clicking aim, horrible lag spikes, etc. Such examples include, but are not limited to: eternally sanc'ing the flag in Bossnia, healing and buffing the enemies and debuffing allies. Trolls: Call them what you like, these are the annoying ones who may or may not intentionally make the battle difficult for a fired up warrior. I mean they could be small annoyances, but seriously, you wish they wouldn’t do that. The kings (and queens?) of BG. These are the players with the initiative to roar out instructions and have enough leadership behind their words to make the team see sense. They’re seasoned warriors well-versed in the art of war tried by the fires of BG and tempered by the ice of WoE. The breath of fresh air. These are the players who dedicate their time and invest their BG stakes on the team. They often go full support, but can also make some annoying moves to trip up or delay the opponents, thus giving their own team an edge. Unfortunately, this makes them easy targets and woe to them when they don’t have any tricks up their sleeves to fend their attackers off. The judgement caller, the person who gives his vocal opinion after looking over the members on his team. Verdicts can vary from: "/gg we got this" to "... @die" may also include "/sigh... snipers" He may be right, but there are circumstances that call for discretion, such as to keep the flagging spirits of the newbie BG'er from spiralling down even further and quitting the BG scene altogether. The tactical eliminators. Not to be mistaken for Crabs, these guys kill for a purpose. They are the ones doing the dirty work in order to ensure that their team gets and maintains the upper hand. IDK, maybe you should be flattered if you find yourself spinning at their feet ‘cause they deemed you enough of a threat to require their attention. Even more so if they actually need to gang up on you. The specialists who contribute greatly to the win/lose balance of a match. They are the breakers of Rush, the trappers, webbers and runners of CTF and SC In short, these are the guys who inspire confidence in the team by their mere presence. The person the team rally around, asking, “Do we have a <insert job here>?” The charge ahead person who simply goes for the BG objectives and doesn't care about anything else. This guy is focused on only two things; the objective and how to get them efficiently. The untouchables, as elusive as water. Whether you're supporting them or killing them, these are the guys that are soooo hard to click. Unfortunately they are skilful and greatly impact the outcome of the battle so you really need to either keep them healthy and strong, or you have the sad job of killing them before they tilt the score too far out of your team’s reach. The Kouhai, new to BG and out of their element, much like… well, a fish out of water, floundering over what to do, where to go and such. On the brighter side, there’s no other way to go but up. Shout out to the Senpais /gg You know who you are, I am grateful for your wisdom and kind words. You may not know me, but I know you have helped a lot of newbies both in and out of Battlegrounds. It is an honor to fight alongside and a nightmare opposite you XD

    Glad you appreciate it 😁 Due to popular reception, Imma make more /gg Imagine yourself peacefully shooting Gold Porings in rhythm, you're in the zone, everything is flowing smoothly. Suddenly an Eremes mob rushes up to you and starts whacking like nuts. Next thing you know all sorts of mobs are flooding the place. Please, have mercy on the half naked semi-AFK Bios in your party (if they're even geared) they can't resurrect their slave... err hardworking homunculus should it get mobbed.

    /shy Thank you for your encouragement, @SuranSenpai. /lv /heh Hai That's what I hoped. Good thing GR is not PK, otherwise I might get bullied by Cramps and Savages. Oh, wait, the Savages got warped out XD

    /shy Thanks Senpai. I'll go out on a limb and take the liberty of accepting your statement as a complement. Honestly, I have no idea, it starts out as a list of random observations and then the Fire Nation attacked. I am grateful for your support. /shy I think you're the only one interested in my scribbles, Thanks again.
  11. Wow, you've read my mind /thx I'll update the first post when it's implemented. Thank you, you've worked hard 😊

    The GR Zodiac

    The 12/13 People You Will Meet Inside the Gold Room (aka The Maia Fan Club) The wellspring from which the abundance of Mithril Coins flow forth These are the nasty, soulless, rotten to the core, sneaky little rodents, usually, but not limited to Snipers, who kill steal from Homunculus (nope, no bias here) For shame you guys, there’re more than enough Gold Porings in GR, no need to pick on the hardworking Vanilmirth, no matter how ugly it is. Have some compassion, it’s not its fault it was born that way or that its master is such a slave driver. AKA: Biochemists/Slave Drivers They'd walk around, swing their axe/Blue Naght Sieger Sword or cause Crazy Uproar when they get bored, but they never seem to leave the room. These guys are often the reason GR parties stay alive, regardless of the numbers. They are practically GR fixtures, you hear someone inviting members @main, they’d usually be the first there. Probably need to join a lot of GR parties ‘cause the gold flows their way very s...l….o…..w……l…….y. These are the rare @refresh 2-shot snipers who annihilate every Gold Poring in sight within seconds. You can practically hear them roar when you see them in action. They are the GEM of any GR party they grace their presence with. I love you guys! You are an asset to Anomaly, the pillar of the economy, the Lodestar of GR, the… Ok, enough of that, you get my drift. Ahhh… The silent killers, jumping here and there, going about their killing business. Usually but not limited to Snipers, these guys multiply as the number of members rise, or miracle of miracles a GR Event happens while there’s actually a decent sized party. Kill, kill, kill!!! No time to chat. Glowing Poring? Plop! Not anymore. @jump These are the mythical 1-shot poring killers. Don’t hold your breath waiting for them to join; they are rarer than a bloody steak. But when they do show up in their Sniper form, they won’t talk to you. Not because they’re stuck up, rude or anything, they just CAN’T due to @refresh, substance abuse and ‘serking. So don’t even try to strike up a conversation, I suggest you marvel at them from a distance instead, ‘cause any Gold Poring around them are either dead or will be in the blink of an eye, so no kills for you there. By no means are they limited to Sniper form. I’m sure there are others, although the only other 1-shot poring killer I’ve personally encountered was a Taekwon on a full/almost full party. He’s a glorious poring chaser and kind enough to answer my noob questions while the party is in full swing. SMH… The wily ones who cry, "How many in GR?" whenever the invites are shouted @main. The answer to which will be the basis by which they will make such cunning decisions as whether to use Sniper or Biochemist or if they will even join the party at all. @#$%^#[email protected]#$% Join us!!! We’d be sharing gold in no time, for crying out loud, what’s not to like? Also: Devious unmentionables who think they can bypass GR security. I’ve never heard of anyone getting away with it, but be warned; the hammer of justice will find you. These are the valiant Poring Terrorists in the GR party. Also known as @refresh Snipers, they kill Gold Porings in 3-shots or more. Their spirit, while often short-lived, is not to be underestimated. I adore you guys. Oh for the glorious days of mindless grinding… The fresh-faced Sniper who wants to improve their damage and bravely asks the first Eddga or Nightmare Terror they see how they get to have such high damage or rapid succession kills. You’re going places, kid. *salute* /hmm The GR vets, who can take on a multitude of incarnations and roles: The wise GR vet, giving sage advice to newbies, whether they ask for it or not. No they are not overbearing know-it-alls, they just notice the fresh-faced Sniper and offers the wisdom they have accumulated, knowing the Goat will find it useful. Also: The bored GR vet, usually on a deviant… err interesting job for GR, like High Wizard, Sorcerer, etc. They are usually there to boost the numbers, chat with specific party member/s, and are usually the first to leave when the party is about to get full to make room for other players to join. Also: The trolling GR vet, thank goodness I don’t see them anymore. Seriously, you DO NOT want to meet them. They turn the Gold Porings into random mobs until GR resembles King Poring’s Castle sans MVPs. The VIP of GR The very reason a GR party even EXISTS. Also known as the noisy party leader crowing, “Join the GR party” at the top of their lungs. XD Usually Biochemists, they dedicate blood, sweat and tears in order to form a decent party (or at least attempt to.) They not only flood @main to advertise invitations but often use the Discord chat to recruit members and I have the feeling they browbeat their friends and guild to join as well. These noble souls sacrifice a portion of their generated gold in order to maintain the party, as they could have been Snipers instead of <insert other job here> On the rare occasion that they are actually Snipers , they’re not only putting double the effort, they’re going the extra milesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. (Hopefully someone volunteers to relieve them) Hat’s off to you guys. May your tribe increase. Shout out to the GR Densetsu no Sannin! Maia *cough* I mean the Anomaly economy owes you. The faithful GR regulars. They may not lead, but they’re almost famous (notorious?) for always joining the party. Sometimes they’d howl @main to help the lead recruit, or nag their pack into joining. They also like to keep the chat lively, in the vain attempt to help keep everybody (including themselves) awake. (I swear GM, these Gold Porings have hidden skill ‘Drowsy,’ ‘Sleep,’ ‘Coma,’ whatever) Public Service Announcement: Content of the chat may or may not include and is not limited to NSFW and unintelligible gibberish, which I have heard from good authority, is actually another language, but to the drowsy mind of the overtired poring clicker might as well be incomprehensible babble even if translated ‘cause it won’t register anyway… zzzZZZzzzZZz *jolt* Huh?!! Oh, I’m still inside. Click… click… Hey, every member counts (all puns intended) /pif The absentee members. They spend more time in Caspen than inside the GR for the following reasons: They have to AFK because <insert reason here> Or they are so focused in their alt+tab because <insert reason here> I mean, everyone’s been warped out of GR before, but dude, don’t make it a habit just because the party leader is nice enough to PM you whenever you get warped. I mean come on, your presence is the only thing going for you, please be polite enough to stay inside. I’m nowhere near savage enough but if I were to say what’s on my mind, I’d get a warning from the GMs. And yeah, these are the guys that are first to be kicked off the party as the number of members approach 20/20, and I must say rightfully so. Remember: you only contribute your half-count if you’re inside. The sad tale of the one who joined the party but you’re unlikely to meet, at least not for long, inside the Gold Room. This is because they’re unable to enter GR because they're either not 500/200 or they're currently farming GR equipment. Unfortunately by the time they're ready, the party is either over or has dwindled down to a sad memory of its former glory. If you've read this far, may you reflect on your ways (whichever type you are) and improve your GR Sign. Let's meet in the Gold Room and get rich!
  13. Personally, I have nothing against BG duos, as I could land on either side, and I have seen a match or two when the team with a very advantageous line up loses, tho I wouldn't know if any of the members are duo'd or not. (Maybe I jinxed it? idk...) So this is just me brain storming: What if instead of completely removing duo queue, partnerships are limited instead? Like damage + damage is not allowed... Then maybe snipers + damage and support + damage/snipers are allowed? (with a few vet exceptions, most snipers are trappers, ergo utility) This may seem complicated to BG newbies, but it will help maintain the balance of power. Might even limit the number of times you'll find TDM or TI with a priest and 2 SLs on your team (when even the 2 damagers cry @die smh) Shout out to Urang the crazy trapper and Gelolas (a Vet, I bet) You make my life miserable when I trip all over your traps.

    Because GR is dead.... I've had too much time on my hands and depressing thoughts came creeping in This is the reason why F2P players are poor:
