<DIV>no one-- because you people encourage the most "elite" guilds by making everything harder so only those who already have the most "uber" gear can even atttempt these encounters-- the rich keep getting richer-- the rest of us you obviously dont give a flying you know what about.</DIV>

<P>They've added new encounters for casual players, regular players, hardcore soloers, uber-guilds, and all other types. You wanna take down a single ^^ and get gear as good as those uber-guilds? Who are you kidding? Those who try, do. Those who whine, don't. Get over it, or get with it. Thanks for the 1-star, I love you too.</P> <P>EDIT: Oh yeah, Grats on completion. </P> <P> </P><p>Message Edited by Asterothrax on <span class=date_text>07-08-2005</span> <span class=time_text>03:26 PM</span>

<P>No, it appears to me he's whining that he can't get into one of the Uberguilds, or doesn't want to. Well, thats the effort it takes to get the uber gear. Otherwise, the game would be too easy and without challenge to Team Players. A game that hands you the end-game items with minimal effort or going solo doesn't last very long.</P> <P> </P>

I'm not bitter or anything - I certainly think that Ascendance is one of the best guilds in the whole game at the moment, and I know they worked hard to get to that point <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> - but how will anyone else beat them to a world first when they were on the Test server figuring it out weeks before hand? I know that <b>most </b>of their time on Test was figuring out bugs with splitpaw (and for that we should all thank them for putting in the countless hours they put in to improve the AP for the rest of us gamers <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> ), but when alot of the bugs were worked out and they were able to complete the instances fully and learn all the strats to do them quickly, how could they not have been the first guild world wide to complete that? <div></div>

Be happy to know it can be done.. and move on.</P> <DIV>From one fat boy to a group of others.. Good Job you Guys!!!! Grats on a Game Wide First!!  Now make yourselves some salads and take a shower for gods sake, and then enjoy the accolades!!  Now is the time to start selling some of that sweet loot you cant use to me... for less than crazy prices.. you know you dont need the money!!</DIV>

Of course.. once you subtract the hours five servers lost for being down all day long, the result of this unofficial race changes dramatically. <span>:smileywink:</span>

Ya if the downtimes for the "locked" servers were taken into account.hmm.lets see.hmm.which server would have the world first?.hmm.could it be.hmm.another server and guild.who completed it a few hours after Ascendance, and that is with a what 12+hr downtime. gj sony on starting it on a unfair playing field.  How about you post about that devs? dont hear a word about that.please add in how other servers had a 12 hr downtime...So Ascendance grats on a world first that truely isnt a world first, grats on a accomplishment that wouldnt be yours if all servers had been up from the beginning. <P><SPAN class=time_text></SPAN> </P><p>Message Edited by CireZevahc on <span class=date_text>07-09-2005</span> <span class=time_text>01:03 PM</span>

Wow, CireZevahc.. calm down.  There was no serverwide message, there was no statless gray-con activatable artifact, and ultimately there was no tremendous challenge.  Perhaps if any of these factors had been different, or if it wasn't possible for any fool to do the math and determine the reality of the situation, would there be reason to be concerned about a minor congratulatory note in a rarely-visited forum.  Now, what truly could be merited as upsetting is losing an entire day for reasons that were never even partly explained and certainly not reimbursed in any way, shape or form.  I'd love to see some moderator comment on that.

You still leave out that other guilds and other servers beat it within like 1-2hrs after you, and thats with their servers being down for the whole first day, so you had 2 head starts on this one.

<DIV>There will be other server firsts, it wont always be my guild obviously, but there will always be issues as all online games do with server stability,guilds on test server etc.  I think people are upset because sony gave recognition to us without certain circumstances taken into view(or maybe they did). I dont know if other leading mmorpg companies do what sony does with recognizing guilds for accomplishments but i think its a good thing, obviously people want to be recognized or there wouldnt be so many arguements here. Should sony not congratulate a guild at all since almost every big patch has issues and some servers stay down longer than others? Idk. Should they not congratulate a guild because they quickly tested a encounter? Idk Should they stop recognizing all together? Idk</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>In the end we just post when we feel we did something that took some effort and if its first so be it we will still post if we are second. If sony feels they should recognize it then thats up to them but i dont feel we should be put down because all we did was write a few words on the boards saying we completed something. If the roles were switched and something interferred in my guild doing something first that meant something to us, yes, i know i would be frustrated but i KNOW i wouldnt put another guild down, they did it we didnt no biggie the issue is with sony not the other guild, would i be annoyed at sony?, probably but i know there are alot of issues that they have that i cant really have a effect on by bickering on the boards.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I wish the best of luck to all other guilds in doing what they love doing , playing eq2. And i hope we can get past putting other guilds down that just want to have fun aswell.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Cheers</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Gnime</DIV> <DIV>Ascendance</DIV> <DIV>50 Warlock/Sage</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<span><blockquote><hr>Should sony not congratulate a guild at all since almost every big patch has issues and some servers stay down longer than others? Idk.<hr></blockquote>You win points for being the only person so far who has acknowledged that some servers were indeed down for 12 hours, and that this fact might possibly qualify as a valid point in suggesting an uneven playing field.  Yes, you'd be correct in suspecting that any sort of official recognition, given such a circumstance, could be regarded as provocatively unjust; I think some of the comments in this thread have proven that.  Not sure what's worse, though: People who get excessively upset over it, or people who bask in dubiously-earned adulation while simultaneously labelling valid points of contention as excuses.  Anywy, you've got my respect.  Cheers. </span><div></div>

<P>Though eloquent in your thread, Asterra, you still miss the point. Ok, some servers were down yes. What does that have to do with anything? The whole day most of our guild wasnt even on (with being at work, school, etc). It took very little time to figure out how to get to the raid instance. We had to wait until an acceptable raid size was available before we could even attempt it (which would have been well after ALL servers were up for some time.) So did having our server up and the few of us that were on at the time, give any advantage over someone else? No, it didnt. Everyone had a chance at doing this game first. </P> <P>It just seems funny that the people that are flaming here are the same people that were sending us telling asking how to do the instance we were already done with. They then come to the boards and flame us for being the first to complete it? I dont get it. We aren't here for your gratz. We are here to have fun and do the best we can. Congratz to everyone else who did the instance as intended. It sure was a fun and very well thought out raid. </P> <P>Have fun and gud raiding. </P>

I'd like to add that we never tested Brutal Acts of War - we had no idea what to expect when we zoned in. While testing the regular acts of war, the devs gave us no information as to how to complete it. We had to figure it all out while they watched for bugs.
