I think that most are scattered all over the lands. I am still on Lesnik but should send a guildwide message with this link and the best location. Should we return to our original server? Does it seem that many have stopped playing?

General Discussion / State of the Watch March 2021
« on: April 06, 2021, 10:46:47 AM »
Hail to the Watch. First off........

*Sung to the tune of "I want to be a snowman"* If you want to be an officer, then we have tons of work for you. No pay and just for the enjoyment of serving others. Send Connor or Sorahl an email if you are crazy like us, too.

Now that is out. Thank you all who volunteered last month. We have some new officers in the lands and, like always, real life snuck past me. Officers meeting in April will be the 24th at 0900 AM Est. This should allow for lots of planning. Before this, we will be doing the Officers Review. I would ask all officers to take a look at the IRR release listing on the website and the Projects Tracker to give an update for this month.

Calendar issues: we are tracking them. Please report them on the website and in Discord to Lili so that she can push the resolution. Roster work and promotions are ongoing. The roster works much better now, but it is a slog getting all the overdue put back together. We should be done by the end of the year. Please make sure that your alternates are flagged in the game and added to the site. Roster officers have much work to do, and we can always use a few more. Trust me, if you were a roster officer before, we have a much better system now!

Allied Guilds will be updated this month. It is on my listing... it really is...

For all our new members, Remember that we have many games and some just have a few Watchers while some have many. If you look at the games rating system, you can see where we are on what game. This review is done monthly based on the login report of the games. We could use some WOW leads for the traditional World of Warcraft. Right now we have members logging in and many applications, we just do not have event leads and roster officers.

Spring has Sprung. Happy Easter to all.


General Discussion / Defiance Game Closure
« on: March 31, 2021, 11:52:44 AM »

To our loyal Defiance and Defiance 2050 Communities,

Since the release of Defiance 8 years ago, followed by the release of Defiance 2050 3 years ago, we have shared countless gaming memories. Today we come to you with hearts heavy with sadness as we announce that Defiance and Defiance 2050 will officially cease all operations on April 29, 2021.

This decision was not an easy one to make. We concluded that both games could no longer sustain themselves.

While we are discontinuing the games service, we will never forget the incredible journey we embarked on together. It is never easy to announce the shutdown of any game, knowing how much time and effort we have all put into making Defiance and Defiance 2050 enjoyable for many years.

As of today, all cash purchases will be disabled. Bits already purchased before February 24, 2021 will still be usable until the end of service.

Players may continue to play in Defiance and Defiance 2050 and enjoy all game features until April 29, 2021.

The following content will be available:

95% discount on all in-game items sold for Bits in the Defiance Store.
Every 1-2 weeks, we will hold a server event for Defiance and Defiance 2050.
Server Boosts for Skill, Reputation, and Experience Points will be active.
Item giveaways.

Anything Goes / Videogame sales log best March in 12 years

Videogame sales log best March in 12 years
Apr. 21, 2020 1:43 PM ET|About: Nintendo Co., Ltd. (NTDOY)|By: Jason Aycock, SA News Editor
Videogame sales posted a healthy rebound in March - reversing seven months of year-over-year declines - as the COVID-19 crisis spurred broad shelter-at-home orders, and users flocked to games for entertainment.

Industry sales rose 35% overall from March 2019 to $1.6B, the highest spending for a March month since the $1.8B in March 2008, according to NPD Group.

Gains were broad - and considering the refresh cycle, very strong in hardware (up 63% to $461M). In short: People went out and bought Switches.

Software sales rose 34%, to $739M, and accessory revenues rose 12%, to $397M.

The strong month cut the industry's YTD sales decline to 4%, and hardware is now up 2% YTD.

In hardware, Nintendo Switch (OTCPK:NTDOY) set a March sales record, more than double its total from a year ago, analyst Mat Piscatella notes. PlayStation 4 (NYSE:SNE) and Xbox One (NASDAQ:MSFT) each grew sales by more than 25%.

The Switch Pro Controller was the best-selling individual gamepad, while PlayStation 4 hit a platform high for gamepad spending in a March. Best-selling headset/headphone was Turtle Beach's (NASDAQ:HEAR) Xbox One Ear Force Stealth 600.

In software, it was all about Animal Crossing: New Horizons (OTCPK:NTDOY), which debut at the top of the monthly chart and immediately became the second-best selling game YTD. In its first month, it's exceeded lifetime sales of all others in the Animal Crossing franchise.

It outpaced last month's leader, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (NASDAQ:ATVI), and other debuts settled in behind: at No. 3, MLB: The Show 20 (SNE), and at No. 4, Resident Evil 3 (OTCPK:CCOEY).

Rounding out the software dollar-sales top 10: No. 5, NBA 2K20 (NASDAQ:TTWO); No. 6, Doom Eternal (Bethesda Softworks); No. 7, Persona 5: Royal (Atlus); No. 8, Grand Theft Auto V (TTWO); No. 9, Borderlands 3 (TTWO); No. 10, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe (OTCPK:NTDOY).

Elevenar / Elementals
« on: February 10, 2018, 05:50:34 PM »
Dear Humans and Elves,

The time has come for a new guest race to join your cities in Elvenar : The Elementals!

The Elementals are a very old and mystical race that lives in another dimension. Their boisterous power of nature is bound into magic masks that enable them to take a stable shape. For instance, they can use the masks to appear in a humanoid shape to interact with other races (remember the Masquerade event?). Without their masks, they would not be much more than uncontrolled fire, water, air and earth, so the masks are quite vital to their cultural existence.

Unfortunately, they lack the precise knowledge how to build these masks on their own. That is why they lived in a kind of symbiosis with the Elvenar. The mighty, god-like Elvenar helped them to create the masks, and in turn the Elementals used their power to build up glorious cities and also legendary armies. No other race would dare to threaten the Elvenar when they are supported by such a powerful force.

Every few centuries, the Elementals have to revisit Elvenar to renew their masks - and their collaboration and friendship with the Elvenar. That is why they suddenly pop up in your town, expecting you to be the Ancient Elvenar. When they find out that you are indeed not the Elvenar, they start to worry a lot about their own future. They decide to build up a Settlement in your town to help you regain access to the knowledge of your ancestors - ultimately to help them to survive.

In the process, they teach you the basics of how to produce Sentient Goods, a technique that future Guest Races will further improve. The Elementals start with showing you how to produce Platinum, Moonstones and Elven Tree Gum using the Divine Seeds. This will enable you to progress through the Tech Tree and unlock improved versions not only of your own buildings, but also of the Settlement Buildings, which are unlocked level by level this time. Thus, as a player, you can watch step by step in the Settlement, how the instable Elementals of the beginning slowly regain control of their shape and build more and more stable structures and in the end proper buildings.

Can you save the Elementals before they cease to exist and turn into pure elements? And can you prove to be the true heir to the Elvenar?

Elevenar / Army Production
« on: December 21, 2017, 01:59:05 PM »
Things that impact troop production:
Barracks - faster production times
Armouries - more troops per training slot in barracks
Wonders - certain wonders give free troops or increase training speed or increase training size
For stronger armies:
Squad Size technology
Wonders - Those that increase damage or HP
For weaker enemies:
Advanced scout tech - Decreases the enemies strength for unscouted provinces
Scouting approach - Again not directly affecting your troops but the enemy strength.
Scouting in a "circular" fashion, difficulty jumps a lot when you go an extra ring distance from your town
Timing of scouting to your advanced scout tech. Minimal or moderate scouting will have enemies you can beat. Scouting as much as possible will mean provincial combat becomes impossible
Chapter - If you are in chapter 1-3 you may not have access to all unit types placing you at a disadvantage. Provincial combat is also unbalanced in this area so just get to the end of chapter 3 through negotiating.
Number of armories depends on your play style. Anywhere from 2-4 is fairly normal for a combat person in most chapters. Some people do have up to 6 armories, later in the game wonders can influence this as well.

General Discussion / State of the Watch for Aug 2017
« on: September 07, 2017, 03:04:48 AM »
Hail to the Watch,

Communication is the key to any good group.  A simple 'hello' or a 'how are you doing' is a great thing. It lets people know that we care and prevents the very thing that is beginning to happen in the guild - feeling alone. You see, as a multi-game group, we are 627 people spread across 13 plus different games. When you look at this, it means that we must talk. 

I know that many of you have a small group you enjoy gaming or visiting with, and for years we did not have the capability to span many different games.

Now we do. Finally, with the advent of Discord, we have the capability to communicate just like we did when we were on guild chat in the old days. Discord does not require voice, you can just log in and type, either in a general channel discussion or in private messages.  We're all busy with work, school, family, etc., and most of the day to day communication occurs using text-based messages. 

So I ask you all to say hello when Watchers come online. If you need a hand or are looking for something in the guild, ask. There are no bad questions. Come join us in Discord so that we can 'talk' a bit (Discord has a pretty good voice function, too!).  Here is the link https://discord.gg/d5uJGzX

See you in the lands and in Discord.
