Red Alert
« on: October 31, 2008, 06:14:55 PM »
Last week, AFS High Command received an alarming message suggesting that a large scale attack was underway. Earlier today, we received a confirmation that this was a real threat and that something even more ominous was possibly afoot.

This confirmation came, not via the encrypted communication channel like the last one, it was brought to us by a dying soldier who managed through sheer determination to reach us and warn us before passing away.

You thought the battlefield was a tough experience? Make no mistake; this is going to be worse, much worse.

Sunday 2nd November is when we fight to retain what we have tried so hard to build over the past year. 7PM old GMT (8PM old Central European Time) is when we expect the Bane to initiate the assault on strategic zones that are yet to be revealed.

There is no place for caution any more. Surviving is our only option.

3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.

Right then, time to get my hands on a f***load of ammo and install myself in a nice tower in one of the strategic places the AFS has, my guess in the bases that have wormholes

if its spread across several zones it isnt as bad... its when its in one zone (and focused in 1 area) that the problem crops up.

I am currently getting a selection of screenshots taken by me hosted up onto photobucket right now.

If you guys want to email me any screenshots that you have taken to tabularasa[at]gangrel.me.uk then i will put them up to join the collection.

Also, if you have any screenshots from events, then please email them to me as well at the same address, but give more info about the images (ie when/where/what the event was) and i will put them up as well.

Divide 1 was pretty bad on Centaurus during the event... I mean, 10 seconds lag at minimum despite having 20 ms ping... the server was on its knees...

The Ashen Desert were a bit laggy, but then all , who were pissed by  continuosly being killed,  leaved it,  it went almost lag-free for the rest of the event. Additional booes goes t whoever instead of defending a high-level zone, went to the low-level one and prevented low levels from having fun (our teammmeber went to low level to show a way to our low-level clan-member and thus saw it all with her own eyes)

I made some screenshots, dunno, if you still need them or no.

As always, respect to GMs, who made this all available to us and i am looking for more events.
