  1. Hearthstone...why you no give me mage cards!? :(

    1. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      It doesn't hearth you, hurhur

    2. Jinxis

      Jinxis

      ah ha... ah ha.... >.>;

      Sinckx

      I just want Dr Boom ]:

  2. Sigh, how I miss lurkers in StarCraft. Slaughtering marines by the hundreds... :dreaming: Ahem, er, I mean, uh, welcome to the Dojo! :big_smile:
  3. To buy Dark Souls, or not to. THAT...is the question.

      If you're asking this you clearly haven't played Demon's soul, do yourself a favor and buy both.

      @Jinxis, Indeed you do. Remeber to never give up and praise the sun.

      IT'S A TRAP

  4. This is the running theory at the moment. Wildstar is being developed by an apparent western "dream team" and is expected to be quite big across NA and EU. Personally, I am looking forward to Wildstar but it is very unfortunate that it's release has hindered the launch of Blade & Soul outside of Korea. We're keeping a close eye on NCSoft and TB, looking for any relevant news in regards to its pending world wide launch. So once we know, you will all know.
  5. So the console version of Diablo 3 has everything the PC gamers have been asking for. Yay... :P

    1. Ghastly

      Ghastly

      They don't want us console players to complain about it...it could get ugly

    2. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      I saw, Lol. Diablo 3 is still a joke, though. I prefer Torchlight 2.

    3. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      You'd think Blizzard, a company that makes almost 100% of all it's profits off PC gamers, would be more cautious with their main consumers, though.

  6. Assassins are incredibly strong and great for leveling, armed with various amounts of AoE, crowd control, and single target damage. You will have little to no problems leveling as an assassin.
  7. Friend found this game. Omg, this is going to be the next portal. https://www.digipen.edu/?id=1170&download=25930

  8. So a friend just found this puzzle game and I need to share it with you guys. This game is beyond amazing! Give it a try. Perspective By Digipen You're welcome in advance. :smooth:
  9. It sucks living in an area where the internet is monopolized by one company. Damn you cogeco! ~shakes fist~

    1. BrandX

      BrandX

      Also sucks living in an area with no Blade & Soul. :(

    2. BrandX

      BrandX

      Also sucks living in an area with no Blade & Soul. :(

    3. Ghastly

      Ghastly

      In full agreement with Brandx

  10. Streaming some terrible league with some terrible friends. ^_^ http://www.twitch.tv/jinxis

      who was the guy that looked at a lobster and said. "Yes, that would be delicious steamed. after its insides become all chewy!:

    4. Lithia

      Lithia

      ^ Most likely the same guy that thought that eating oysters, mossels and snails was a good idea...not to mention how he came to and confirmed the idea of draining milk from a cow.

      - Lith. ...Shrimp.

  12. Nayami is now Jinxis, for consistency purposes. And I like it better >.>;

      I'm going to miss Nayami. It was a really easy and warm name.

    3. Lithia

      Lithia

      See...if a user changes his or her name, then that's just a name-change. When a mod or admin changes his/her name.....With great power, comes great responsibility, and I hope you are ready for whatever concequences, sir V____V

      - Lith. ...Jinx.

  13. Valentine's Day, Blade & Soul Style Valentine's Day is almost here! And of course Team Bloodlust and NCSoft have some great gifts for their players in the form of tantalizing doboks from Kim Hyung-tae. As far as we understand there will be two types of the angelic white Valentine's day doboks and one black set. We were given a preview of these outfits on the Jin, Gon, and Lyn females, and we might have more to show after maintenance on the 13th. Happy Valentine's day from the Dojo, Team Bloodlust, and NCSoft! A special thanks to Chan and Daman for finding this so quickly.
