Official forums are a nightmare.|
Game is not perfect, in design and in infrastructure. Far from it.
But I am enjoying it for what it is. Don't look at it as a traditional MMO grind either: you advance laterally rather than vertically (although there is definitely vertical development also), and that keeps things fresh: rather than your gun doing an extra 100 damage against an enemy that has an extra 95 health, you can change your tactics up with differing perks, bonuses et al.

hmm got kicked out twice tonight, once while doing a mission the other just now after an Arkfall event. Not sure if it's the servers or my internet connection
I can also donate some scrip to whoever is going to start the guild/clan.

Well started getting crit timed out error when trying to join server on xbox.Deleted and reinstalled patches,even tried a new character to no avail.
Yeah, got several disconnects tonight.
Had great fun with you tonight Whizzo, rescuing those hostages was really awesome! I was really surprised to see you there. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we were both doing that huge Arkfall the other night too!
Who wants to start a clan then? If we all donate 1000 towards it, that shouldn't be too bad? We can trade or send scrip to other players, right?
EDIT: added spoiler tags just in case

I've no idea if you can trade scrip. Not that I'd be fussy if it was me starting it, it could be any of us. Don't let the fact that I've been following it longer than anyone else influence anything, given I've already become the noob of the thread
I'll try and get to sending friend requests and stuff tomorrow, but feel free to add me if you can solve the riddle of my name. It's DFawkes for account, Fawkes for my character. WHO AM I? Hint: It wasn't really a riddle.
Hmmm, just had two hours wasted. On quitting it seems my character and account got deleted and I'm going to have to start again :/
good thing I have the rest of the week off
Had a bit of a run with Blindmonkey this evening, but we both were messing with the inventory and suchlike as much as actually playing.
Was fun enough though, not perfect by any stretch but a solid experience, and no issues at all which is odd for a launch. Couldn't find Whizzo or Fawkes on the find friend tab so feel free to add Randomlampy yourselves when you get a chance.
Happy to chip in/start guild too.
You can trade scrip, items that have a ego rank number.

Yea me and random had a couple of hours and seemed alright actually! It has some real depth which is probably why we were in inventory screens etc the majority of the time, though I was finding the ui difficult to read but that could be down to sleepiness!

My ultimate edition arrived yesterday and looks very nice. Won't get to play it until tomorrow or the weekend though.

I'll be on tonight for my first big session. So far I've only managed to dip into to a couple of times for a few minutes, which sucks balls.
PC account names summary for easy friendlist finding:
Please note: it seems you can only add players when they are online so keep trying!
Please let me know if I missed anyone!
Edited by ZuluHero at 10:17:45 04-04-2013
@DFawkes I'm happy for you to do it. I was going to imply that myself!
Once we establish friendlist status, ill send you some scrip

Handy hint for anyone, as it confused everyone at the time, if you get a mission to drive someone else's vehicle and it's just sitting there flashing and you can't enter it, you have to summon your own one!
Very strange the game didn't communicate that.
Only being able to do friends request when people online is very silly, hopefully that gets changed because it's bloody annoying
Edited by Whizzo at 09:11:14 04-04-2013
Yeah we were all stood around like lemons trying to get in the truck(s). The silly part is that the quest spawned a new one for each person who started it, so it was easy to assume that you could drive it.
Oh well, we figured it out in the end!
My account name is ... myk
It's amazing how much easier it was to progress through a second time, found a really good assault rifle with fire damage.

I played the beta enough to get a taste of it, but not too much to ruin things and therefore missed a lot of detail I think. Considering the EGO board thing is the same for all, do the different class options at the start (survivalist, soldier etc) actually make any difference?
Well I thought I would drive to the Golden Gate Bridge. Well that was fun
Stuck on a story mission boss battle now. Think I will come back to that one later with a few more perks.
On console for logging out, when you press left trigger to bring up the radial on the map/menu, top left corner it says X to logout.
Not sure when I'll be on today but I definitely will, like right now.
Couldn't the OP add the PC list to it?
Edit: That's me, isn't it. I thought it was BinaryBob, but that was the TV show thread.

Don't think they do, just starting weapons maybe. It's more like mould the character you want. Higher the rank more perks you can unlock for your playstyle.
Started with the decoy power(with perks that are good for a support player in a group), that loadout will mainly be for PvE. Or pick perks that are good for solo play. Managed to unlock Overcharge as well. So I have created a 2nd loadout with Overcharge(mainly for PvP) as the main power then have perks that will work better for that. So I can switch between my different loadouts by just pressing Y button on the loadout screen
Think I will create another character and see if there is any difference

Started off as a sniper with cloak but certainly seem to be moving more towards assault rifle/shotgun/grenade launcher combo.
Think I need to upgrade my weapons though. Whilst my blue VBI Sniper is still fun in a pinch, with the groups of mobs now appearing it's too slow to deal significant damage and my AR is semi-auto and scoped. Problematic.
Just popped on long enough to add Fawkes.
Started as a Sniper (Survivalist?) with cloak too. Really enjoying the bolt action rifles and switching between carbine and shotgun as a second weapon when I get swarmed.
Now I've actaully learned how to use it, I LOVE the Hydra Rocket Launcher. Firing right over peoples heads and detonating it so the clusters rain down feels awesome when you get it right
So clan name - I did make up a couple of silly ones, but maybe domething more simple like Arkhunters of Eurogamer? I've got the Scrip now so whatever people think is best.
Kept the Xbox clan name with something simple as EGers until someone comes up with a better name
Do the Episode missions as you get some nice guns.

I initially dismissed buying this because i thought it was based on some Syfy series that had been running for years that i'd never got around to watching.
To my surprise, i discovered this morning that the show hasnt even aired yet!, the pilot is on Syfy on the 16th of April.
So, actually interested in this now - reading the previous posts, similarities between this and Borderlands sound very encouraging. Does this have split-screen co-op?

That sounds good enough for me Fawkes. I'm sure I got a hydra too, I've not touched many of the different guns aside from bolt action snipers, pistols and the carbine. I'll have to spend some time trying them out.

I have a semi automatic sniper rifle. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
We have a PC Clan! I just went with Arkhunters of Eurogamer. Nice and simple, plus it's AoE, which is also Area of Effect. Sort of nice for an MMO with blasty rocket launchers.
I'll have to get me a rocket launcher then - though my new grenades have a nice AoE effect
