#3244 [Accepted] : Rayner - Sniper Application

Posted by Rayner on 01 May 2012 - 07:23 PM

General info
Main Character Name: Rayner
Main Character Class: Sniper
Age: 42 (no, that's not a typo, I am that old :P)
Country: UK

Joining as? (Raider, Social): Raider

If Raider, which of the following raid times are you able to attend? (Yes/No)
20:30 – 23:30 Wednesday: Yes
20:30 – 23:30 Thursday: Yes
20:30 – 23:30 Sunday: Most weeks
20:30 – 23:30 Monday: Yes

Times given are CET. For the UK, subtract 1 hour. For other regions, I'll leave that for you to work out.

Do you know any existing CD members in SW:TOR? (Yes/No) and if so, who?:
Not really, though I did raid with you guys as a Pick up and had a pretty good time :)

What previous MMO(s) have you played and what is the level of your experience?
I've play a LOT or MMO's though I've probably played WoW for the longest, even some of the total fails like Tabula Rasa! I've been playing MMO's on and off for about 11 years or so, though most of my raiding experience has been in WoW both as a casual raider and hardcore raider in which i've cleared most of the content when it was current from vanilla on. I quit WoW after the second tier of Cataclysm which I raided as a Warlock (Switched mains to give a better raid make up), Hunter and some Rogue, mainly because it was boring! I Have cleared EV on NM and KP on HM (Some NM) in SW:TOR and the first boss in Denova.

What do you find is good about SW:TOR?
It has possibly the best leveling experience of any MMO EVER!

What do you find is bad about SW:TOR?
some of the early raid content is a little lack-luster and buggy as hell!

Why did you decide to pick Continental Drift to apply to?
I was unhappy in my old guild and wanted to play in a more friendly relaxed atmosphere, after raiding with you guys just the once I really enjoyed the vibe of the raid and that you guys have, felt a bit like coming back to a comfy old pair of slippers after a hard day :D so here I am.

Why did you decide to play the class/advanced class you do?
I was leveling with a group of friends and the class fit the group so to speak, though I have always enjoyed playing ranged DPS characters and I liked the feel of it when i played it in the beta.

Tell us a little about yourself.
Ohh, I always hate this bit :rolleyes: Errrm, a bit about me I guess... I like long walks in the country and intimmate romantic dinners, oh wait, wrong site :D who am I kidding anyway, I'm a major computer nerd (both work and play) who loves gaming of most kinds though I prefer MMO's or RPGs of some description, who constantly tries to avoid being family and friends tech support guy.. :blink:

Have you read and understood the guild introduction and rules in the Recruitment Status post? (Yes/No):

What is the Mystery Phrase ? :
Jar Jar Dies - Ahh if only I remember in SWG settting out on my BH with a gentically enhanced sludge panther going to Endor and killing Ewoks for days, just because, if only we could hunt Gungans especially Jar Jar my life may be complete :lol:

#1326 [RSS] Social Points: Don’t Be THAT Guy

Posted by R2D2 on 17 January 2012 - 01:27 AM

A few weeks ago we highlighted some common MMO faux pas that people who are new to the genre often make. This week I want to focus on some of the more challenging guild members you may encounter if you’re joining (or leading) a guild for the first time. If you’re a long time MMO player [...]

#117 [RSS] Damage Meters: The Great Debate

Posted by R2D2 on 07 December 2011 - 06:00 PM

by Elearic

Are you an Elitist Jerk with no life, or a scrub noob with no skills? It seems that for many, that question can be answered by your opinion of damage meters.

Most of us that have played MMO’s for years can give countless examples of a damage meter being used by someone who, let’s just say, hasn’t reached max level with their social skills. They try to grab aggro from the tank, they post the meter every time they happen to be on top, and they attack your play style, gear and rotation. They want to kick you if THEY think your damage is too low. My personal favorites are the players that pad their dps stats by nuking every harmless critter in the instance, or using aoe’s and CD’s on trash mobs, just to get that boost for overall damage.

On the other side, are the players who use damage meters as an analytical tool. They want to see which rotation works best, who is using interrupts, overall activity level, who was hitting the right target, and a variety of other useful stats. They constantly monitor their own rotation and build, trying to squeeze every last bit of dps out of their character. They collect and analyze this data in order to fine tune both their own contributions as well as that of their teammates, with an eye toward progression. Many players will even privately whisper someone who is struggling and offer to help. Maybe they need one more piece of gear, a change to their rotation, or a slight respec.

What do you think? Are damage meters necessary tools used to fine tune your performance in your favorite hobby? Are they a tool that allows players to conquer more challenging raids because they help players maximize their characters potential? Are they simply a means to force people into cookie cutter builds and rotations that eliminate personal choice? Do they promote elitism while providing no overall benefit to you gaming experience?
