A Moment of Silence

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on December 18, 2013 by theerivs

WillFerrell-WeddingCrashers-funeralWell Warhammer Online officially closes it’s doors….let us have a moment of silence….


…Ok, Warhammer Online or WAR will always have a special place in my heart. It had such great potential, and it just fizzled out.

Out with the Old, In with the New.

Camelot Unchained keeps taking shape and it’s one of those games I am eagerly awaiting. Hopefully the lessons of WAR were learned, and this game reaches the potential that it should be.

Just if there are Clerics, don’t fuck with the smite.




One Last Time Unto The Breach

Posted in MMORPG with tags , on November 5, 2013 by theerivs

guop1The guys and gals over at Mythic are giving us a Parting Gift. So I think I will fire up the old Chosen and Walk the Path one more time until they close the servers down, and try to take some screenshots.

WAR will always have a special place in my heart. When it’s gone, I will miss it.

Tobold’s post resonates with me a little. I think we are chasing the dream that was MMO’s. I myself feel a little jaded, and long in the tooth. Sometimes I feel like butter scraped across bread a little too much.

Well I’ll say goodbye to WAR in my own way, maybe I’ll even try an Order toon….who am I kidding. I still hate Order.

In the Future There is only WAR!

iwdreadAh my fellow devotees of Chaos, some glorious news has come out from WAR 40k: Eternal Crusade, and they updated their website. I am drooling like a Possessed Chaos Marine at this game. Here are some more juicy tidbits to get you motivated.

Weekly Lagout

Posted in General with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2011 by scarybooster

I think River is still gone, so I decided to take it upon myself and do his Weekly Lagout. Of course, a Weekly Lagout is not a Weekly Lagout without River. To make it up to you, I will be doing my best River impersonation. This will not be my Weekly Lagout, but what River would Lagout if he was here to Lagout. You’ll see…

RIFT- Well, I’ve lost interest in this game. I’m just waiting for my sub to run out. I feel lonely without my Mage. The game is just not cartoony enough for me. Maybe, I’ll resub to it in the future when they downgrade the fun.

WAR- I mentioned last week I was thinking about resubbing to WAR. I am still thinking. Since I’ve been drunk all week and think I pissed myself because I was thinking too hard, I think I might think a bit more about kerplunking my time into it. I miss WAR’s RvR, but I can’t get over how much the non-RvR sucks. I’m back and forth with this game. I just think I thunk, when I took a kerplunk from being so drunk, in my ex-girlfriend’s trunk that is full of junk.

STO- I bought the damn CE for this game! I feel so stupid for buying it. I feel I need to play it more. It is kind of like when you piss all over your hands and feel you NEED to wash them before eating popcorn. My hands are wet and I’m eating popcorn. Yeah, that warm yellow liquid is not butter topping.

WoW- Man, I have been salivating over my Mage goodness. I was like, pew, pew, frost shield, pew, pew, auction house bitch, pew, pew, riding in my choppa, Pyroblast, pew, pew, rollin’ in my six-deuce. I feel on top of the world with my Mage. I love my Mage. My Mage is sexy. I want to marry my Mage. ❤ Mage

SWTOR- A lot of juiciness has been coming out of whale’s vagina Comic-Con. I see we can now preorder the game. I’ll tell you right now; I am going to play the crap out of this game until my Mage feels lonely. Ok, I’ll play it for 1 month and keep talking about how I am going to resub to it every Friday during Weekly Lagout. I just don’t think I can play a game that doesn’t have Mage. I’ll probably by the CE and regret it.

High Latency Love

I love myself, mainly. I want to thank Bee and Scarybooster for filling in for me. If Scary had a vagina I would be at his house in seconds. To Bee: She does have a vagina… Call me m’kay /wink. I’m sure I can get drunk and queue in a BG all night with you.

Somethin’ Funny

Your face!


**From the Desk of River – I want to thank Scary, and Bee from the bottom of my heart. I hope you had as much fun writing this week, as I did reading your stuff. Your friend Riv.

Warhammer Woes

Posted in MMORPG with tags , on June 29, 2010 by theerivs

Let’s get back to the business of talking games. Lately there has been a malaise feeling in WAR, I feel it within the guild, the faction, even myself when I log in it feels  like blah!.

The problem is I can’t put my finger on it. I love the game. Perhaps it’s the fact  I have a massive grind to go in renown, or it’s just the malaise of everyone else effecting me, or the fact that they got rid of someone I respect within the gaming community immensely, perhaps it’s summer blues hitting Warhammer as well. (World of Warcraft is getting hit my pre-expansion/summertime blues).

I think Mythic needs to hit us with something big, and mind blowing to get the world to sit up, and take notice again. Alas the more and more I think about it, it seems they are in maintenance mode.

Prayers to the Raven God.

Ok WAR has hit a little bit of a stagnation. The City Siege Ping Pong is getting tiresome, and the grind for Renown is killing my soul. We need a little livening up of the game me thinks. So I am trying to evoke Divine help from the Ruinous Powers.

My Suggestions…

2x – 3x Renown – Through a Special Event,  or through Special Gear, like BOA gear like WoW. I think if you up the reward for fighting you will get more people fighting. I don’t care just make it happen..

Special Influx of Cool Loot – Some New Weapons will bring the boys to the Yard.

A New Special Event – Maybe Gortek and Felix found a dragon and need your help, or Sorcerors of the Raven God, Have found a powerful Demon of Slannesh, and need your help in culling it. Like just a One Boss. I love to Hit it and Quit it.

Some more News – Ever since they laid of Josh, things have been quiet…too quiet.

May the Blessings of the Raven God be upon us.

My Crusade Against RP

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on June 18, 2010 by theerivs

A few months back, an RP Icon attacked a lone blogger, who really didn’t have a way to defend herself. I went way out on a limb, some thought I was crazy, perhaps maybe I am. But I wanted to prove a few things, even though my methods were out of line, I think I got my point across. So a fellow blogger said something, and it struck me as something all too true.  

“Rp’ers take rping very seriously” – Pug. Priest.

Yes I know this,  it’s cult like. No other opinion will be heard, and if you differ from their opinion you get attacked en masse, and with a ruthlessness that would put a 13 year old PvP’er to shame. These people are elitists of a whole different genre, I have more respect for some elitists because they proven to me they either have the skills, or talent to accomplish something. These RP elite have proved what? They can walk in an inn, and tell me how good fake food is. They are always looking for new recruits, but don’t worry you’ll get to hang around them, but god forbid you take part, cause I even seen one of them post something about how you should be ok to be excluded.

What angers me so?

Their defense of the douchebags to the point where it’s smacks of hypocrisy. They have something called ERP (Erotic Role Play), and they gather around and do some nasty stuff. How do I know, just go to Goldshire on any RP server.  Now I am no angel by any means, and I fill guild chat with the most foulest things possible. Here’s the crux though, I don’t randomly go into Goldshire, and say I want to stick something where the sun don’t shine. What if there was a young girl, or boy leveling a toon, and they hear this crap.  I am no babe in the woods, and I know the Internet is a scary place, but if something is bad….it’s bad.

Is RP dying?

From what I hear around the blogosphere, it is, and small wonder why. I like the ideals of RP, but those ideals are long gone. To pretend to play a role in Warcraft, to actually play the game like your living in the Warcraft Universe. That is a lofty goal, and one I concur with, but now you have people pretending to be half elf vampire lesbians.

With all their QQ, The irony of it all it’s RP’ers themeselves who are destroying RP. With their hypocrisy, cult like behaviors they are scaring those who might be interested, and that is my greatest joy of my crusade, to see RP fail on a grand scale, and without lifting so much as a hand.

6 reasons to check out Warhammer Online

Posted in MMORPG with tags on June 16, 2010 by theerivs

Well with Mythic being quiet during E3, I thought I would lend a hand and tell you why you should pick the game up, or maybe even come back.

1. It’s free to start – You can actually play it for free, no real stores to buy upgrades, just play and kick butt. As my Grandpappy use to say, “You can beat a dog, but you can’t beat free”

2. Performance – Warhammer admittedly had some issues here, but not anymore. I play with graphics turned all the way up, ground effects and even when facing a massive horde of scum order, I don’t get laggy. I might get my ass handed to me, but I don’t get laggy.

3. Mythic – Mythic not only listens to their customers, they make them involved. Mythic isn’t perfect but every screw up they had, they admitted it, and rectified it. P.S. Thanks for the Manticore.

4. Awesome PvP – Here it’s called Realm versus Realm, and it’s pretty epic. Especially when you see lines being drawn in the sand, or go charging forth screaming “For the Raven God!”

5. Community– I think in every MMO, you got the asshats. But the good guys vs asshat ratio here is real low. Very helpful, ton of resources, and people will bend over backwards to help you if the can.

6. I play – Come say hi to me on Iron Rock, Destro side. Rivs the Drunkard. I’ve been playing a Chosen, and sucking since day 1

So if your looking for a game to try out, go ahead download it…It’s free to try it!

The Emperor’s Circle Jerk

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on June 9, 2010 by theerivs

So I did another City Siege last night, and I have to say it, that one hallway leading to the Empreror’s Circle, is the stupidest ever. Though I really can blame the design too much, when you have people beating on tanks leaving healers untouched.  Destro has gotten use to the Zerg, and in the new City Siege we have to go back to fundamentels. Well I just feel that hallway is a huge choke point, and too beneficial to Order…

On the bright side I got renown, and crests, and I can always use those.

I’m really excited about some of the upcoming changes…is it sad though the one change I’m really excited about is making your armor appear different. Yeah I didn’t get the titles “Trendy”, and “Fashonable” for nothing. Yeah I’m a bit of a metrosexual Chosen, what can I say.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , , , on June 7, 2010 by theerivs

The Good….

So I went on a VOA 25 man pug  run this weekend, and the Sanctified Blood Mage pants dropped. I look at the raid, I’m the only Mage.  Score! Also geting closer to completing my PvP gear, I tried some other Specs, Fire/Arcane Shatter, but after a few hundred gold decided to stay Frost.

The Bad….

My WoW Guild on Horde side are a bunch of good guys and gals…but lately we are having attendence problems, and this is causing some friction. A couple of long time members left, because of it. We decided to rebuild. It’s funny how things work I signed up to this guild not expecting to raid, now I’m raiding like a mofo. The Bad thing is that this isn’t the only good guild suffering from attendence issues, and it reminds me of another guild I was in, Pre-BC killed that guild off dead.  It’s really a shame. I hope my guild can pull back from the brink from it.  If your looking for a new Horde Home let me know at cc0926(at)gmail(dot)com.

The Ugly…

All weekend I was trying to log onto Warhammer Online, and the Server kept kicking me off saying some Authentication error. I was too lazy(read hungover)  to invistigate, and/or try to fix it. I’ll look at it again tonight maybe the problem fixed itself.
