  1. So uhhh... Saw this toon in BnS today... http://puu.sh/mN2wy/31408b8d44.jpg

    1. Momo Kozuki

      Momo Kozuki

      Remind of an old man who cosplays with sailor uniform.

  2. Tree Of Savior (Project R1)

    Will do! I haven't gotten any info as of yet, but I'll keep you posted!
  3. Tree Of Savior (Project R1)

    I actually enjoy mouse + keyboard on my Highlander. I make good use of the WASD keys while using a lot of clicks with the mouse for autos. I may be missing out on attack speed due to this (although I don't feel that's the case) but I'm enjoying it. The controls in general seem like they need adjusting here and there, but overall, IMC has done really well.
  4. Tree Of Savior (Project R1)

    Everyone who got in please add your presumed in game name so we can meet up during the beta \o/ I will stream the game if there isn't an NDA block. Congrats to those who received keys! I'll either be Ruze/Sayru/Saiba
  5. Tree Of Savior (Project R1)

    Success! My excitement cannot be contained! :what:
  6. Dirtybomb [20$ Key]

    Your generosity is greatly appreciated, Akimurai! Thank you very much!
  7. Dirtybomb [20$ Key]

    I'm also interested in the key. :adore:
  8. Tree Of Savior (Project R1)

    Almost thought I saw a dual dagger class near the 1:40 mark. Went back to check it 3 times before realizing it was using what looks like a sickle in one hand and a dagger in the other. PvP arena and mouse controls have me hype \o/ Can't wait for more info~
  9. Revelation 天谕 Online

    Keep us updated on how the game is shaping up \o/
  10. Guild Wars 2

    http://buy.guildwars2.com/store/gw2/en_US/html/pbPage.heartofthorns 50 dollars seems kind of steep for this expansion... Maybe I'm just being cheap.
  11. Revelation 天谕 Online

    Apparently the developer is looking for publishers in NA/EU. Going to keep my eye on this one.
  12. Tree Of Savior (Project R1)

    Slightly off topic, but still relevant for those who previously played or who may have an interest in Ragnarok. There will be a brand new private server for RO opening tomorrow, Saturday the 20th. Hotshotgg presents.. GGRO. That's right. Hotshotgg, the owner of the League of Legends esport club CLG is hosting a server for Ragnarok. The rates will be 7/7/4 with no transcendent classes at launch (it has been stated by the staff that trans will be added in later patches). If you want an old school RO experience with a growing community of veteran and new players alike, I feel that ggRO will generously provide. http://play-ggro.com/ Great group of people that I've played with previously and welcoming to all players: Old Card Album If any of you want to join in the nostalgia, pm me or Nitroglycerine (the GM of OCA) on the ggro forums or in game! My name shall be Ruze~ SHAMELESS PLUG END. :surrender:
  13. Tree Of Savior (Project R1)

    Gravity has never really been a very fair company in terms of defining their players expectations. This is why most people who have played official Ragnarok have moved on to private servers or just quit the game entirely (and that was way back in 2003-2008). This whole thing just makes them look deplorable.
  14. Tree Of Savior (Project R1)

    Looking for that CBT register button. IMC please :joss_stick:
  15. ArcheAge Online

    Surprised this hasn't been posted yet. http://2p.com/8662648_1/ArcheAge-Release-Date-Announced-at-PAX-Prime-by-EdwardsLin.htm September 16, ArcheAge will officially release in the West.
