RIFT Goes Live, SU Smashes RotF

1 Mar

Scarlet Underground's First RotF run

Head start is now over and RIFT is now officially live to everyone – boxes are on the shelves. RIFT launched with 99 servers which is absolutely insane for a new MMO. Hopefully this doesn’t thin out the population to much. Needless to say, it seems like we need more people on Corthana. The population gets a bit thin in the late evening Aussie time. If you are reading this and still on the fence about playing RIFT, you are truly missing out on the next great MMO – jump in and join us!

The guild is doing very well. We have several people in their high 20s and even one in his 30s (Kahz, – that was a lot of cloth!). Along with our old timer core we picked up a group of folks who even switched from Defiant to Guardian to join us after Wolfsbane’s initial overcrowding. One who shall remain unnamed is freakin nuts with the tradeskill alts.

In actual game news, SU stomped Realm of the Fae without blinking. We smashed through it three times in one day (twice in an hour) and knocked out our guild quest, which subsequently got us level 2. Yay us! I don’t know about everyone else, but RotF was extremely fun. And we proved Riftstalker is most certainly a viable tank spec!

 

Position in the queue: forever!

25 Feb

Wolfsbane is full

So here’s the deal, Wolfsbane is extremely popular. And by “extremely popular” I mean forever queue times. Granted, this is going to be common right here around launch, but 5 hours is too much. Consider that fact that this is around 2pm JST (4pm AEST) – the Aussies are still at work and Wolfsbane is the unofficial oceanic server. That means the times could get even longer!

So we’re thinking a server switch is in order. Corthana is the newest PVE server so this is probably our best option. We’ve got a thread open discussing the situation. So far it’s 2 – nil on opting to switch to Corthana.
Update: We’re going to switch to Corthana as our server choice. I’ve got a lot of updates to make around the interwebs about it. Sorry if you started a toon and actually got somewhere with it on Wolfsbane. Here it is 7PM AEST and Wolfsbane still has a 2 hour queue time… and this is just the headstart! We have a whole second launch to contend with!

TL;DR: Scarlet Underground will be on the Corthana shard
