You know, I go on and on about SCO, but I truly love this game. The massive battles are just... insane. I guess WoW probably has the same dynamic with the raids and such, but I've never played WoW, so I can't make the comparison. From what I've heard though, you have to be level 50-60 to be of any use on the raids, wheras in SCO, we welcome all levels to defend our territory, simply because cannon fodder = good.

I am cannon fodder.

Last night we led an awesome offensive into the furthest enemy map. It was insane. We didn't bother to maintain control over the maps, it was just clear, move on, clear, until the end. Insane, nonetheless.

In responce, BCU has launched a series of raids on a massive scale. We're talking bigger than anything I've ever seen before. ANI held out for a while, but eventually they broke through our blockade and everything went, well, downhill from there. When I logged off, we were getting pushed back pretty fast with little hope of recovery...

Why won't these damn pictures upload... grr. I'll just interspace them between all that text so it doesn't look like I was just typing because my up-speed sucks.

Anyway. I pilot a B-Gear, which is essentially an all-around ship, but primarily used for bombing. Sure, I can dogfight okay, but when it comes to taking out tanks (A-Gears) I fucking pwn. Seriously. Start out with a low angle and slow approach until they're within range of my guns. Normally they're in formation camping a gateway, so they're all looking up. Then BOOM! The first volley hits them, and I rip loose with more missles and start firing the guns as I move in. By the time they know what's going on, they're just pwnt.

Its really awesome to see an A-Gear formation scatter after a couple of these runs. Makes me all warm and fuzzy on the inside. The best part is, if I can get within 100m and stay within that small circle, they can't even touch me because of their primary weapon's minimum range. Its crazah.

Granted, when an interceptor comes along I'm basically screwed. I mean, I might dodge the first few volleys they throw at me, but in the end I'm almost always out manuevered. I simply can't match their high turning speeds. That and their skills are a little overpowered. Once I get to level 60-70 I'll be the one with the overpowered skills. But that's at least a couple more months off.

And lol, I completely forgot to compress the pictures (JPG, anyone?) which would explain why its taking so damn long. I'll post them tommorrow or something, too lazy to do it now. I want to get back in-game and see how far we've been pushed back [sad]

I've tried to give it a go but it constantly fails to auto-patch and just tells me to redownload the client [sad]

I wonder if my x64ness is causing the problem...

I'm going to give this game a go... :)

My name on there will be "briguy992"... For some reason it said "Iced_Eagle" was not a valid nickname even thought it said A-Z and also underscores were valid charactes. :?

Which server are you on?

Joymus Server, ANI Faction.

Their login system is really awkward - it doesn't accept a lot of things. Note that your account ID != your character ID.

You can reach me at "Keras" in-game.
