View Full Version : Server / Faction
09-13-2008, 10:17 AM
I know little to nothing about the Warhammer world, but a pvp based change sounds interesting right now. Please post any ideas on factions and a server here.

I prob going to go on the same server as Muzo a lot of ex ATF will be playing with him so it sounds ok.
09-13-2008, 11:31 AM
I'll likely be on Sylvania or Skull Throne for Destruction.
For Order...mmmm....probably Volkmar.
I'll let you know tomorrow where I end up. :p
09-14-2008, 05:02 PM
Looks like Lords of Steel might be Destruction on Skull Throne too.
09-14-2008, 05:50 PM
That is indeed where I ended up based on my scientific research of "Which server lets me in first?!?!" :)
Seems to be a good bit of back and forth so far. Reason #1 Skillet should roll Destruction here:
I was in the first scenario and got into a fight with an Order mongrel with the guild tag of <Goon Squad> :p

Adding photographic evidence for Mr. Skillbits to KNOW he can gank goonies...
Saddly, I guess I won't be making it to where ATF is playing this time again for a game, but it's not because I didn't somewhat try. But there was really no coordination it seems from anyone anywhere and I'm not even certain from what I read that ATF is going to have a real WAR chapter. I have been playing beta with some guys I have known from before I knew ATF and one of them with the CE started on Vortex as Destruction. He more or less used the same logic as ST (yay! no line on this server!). As early as it is, seems he doesn't want ot hop servers and the other two are planning to just join there as well.
Oh well, I guess at least I'm the same faction this time if any server transfers need to happen way down the line. I would like to play with ATF, but I already committed to playing with these guys to get a rounded group going (and they are good friends of old... hate being torn between my online playing friends).

Destruction on Skull Throne sounds like my choice, if I were to even play.

BTW, fill in your profile information (http://www.alliedtribalforces.com/profile.php?do=editprofile).
Skull Throne server huh? I will see you there tomorrow I'm rolling a shaman.
09-16-2008, 06:33 AM
Look for Cynia.around 6PM and later. :) I'm terribly unoriginal with my names...
I'm thinking about re-rolling a Disciple of Khaine though so that I can play with youse guys (and I suck at a Witch Elf , even if I have a lot of fun being bad at it :)).
Server is full...199-214 we going to call this home?
09-16-2008, 08:32 AM
There was no line when I tried to get in last night. Have a feeling you're seeing the crush of people who just got "OMG ACCESS!" who are charging in. This will probably repeat itself on the 18th with the people who are like....well, "OMG ACCESS!!"
If it stays ugly we can move though, but I'd prefer non-skewed numbers to work with. ;)
09-16-2008, 10:16 AM
Ouch :/ Still would prefer a wait and see approach since the launch of any game is crazy as people settle out.
Of course, the first day of the CE pre-launch was nuts too. Got kicked out at 9:45PM and it was about a 20 minute wait to get back on. Then like I said, 0 wait last night at about 6PM.
09-16-2008, 12:59 PM
You ever get in Levo? Swaddles is saying that Skull Throne is only one of two that's jam-packed full. :(
09-16-2008, 01:28 PM
In the event that Skull Throne does not settle down...ideas for our Destruction server? Just as a backup.
09-16-2008, 02:13 PM
Swaddles has made the logical suggestion of Vortex. Assuming that Skull Throne stays busy (which it sadly seems likely to do), I suppose that'd be a good place. More people = more smashy = more fun...right?
Don't necessarily let me sway things here (I've been uninvolved in ATF long enough to be a scrub now), but there will be me and three other guys I know (maybe more?) on Vortex. At ~3:00pm CST today it was medium / medium population. It appeared in the list in a spot that seemed to show it had a respectable population--not overflowing with queue lines (none), yet it wasn't a low pop server. It's probably in the top quarter population-wise right now. It could get to a full level at prime time--who knows. To me, it's a balancing act of not getting on a dead server vs an over-crowded server. This might hit that balancing point *just* about right. Time will tell.
As of this writing, Skull Throne has ~150 in the queue for both sides. Vortex is up to a Med / High level now. Going to be interesting to see overall server populations during prime tonight as the second wave of pre-orders hit.

thats why we never listen to silver lol
09-16-2008, 03:08 PM
thats why we never listen to silver lol
I'm still amazed that the two servers I picked largely at random turned out to be the two most jam-packed ones. :gah:
That's a skill folks.
yea i finally got in had to wait at least 30min. Plenty of people to PQ with and a very busy server.. taking a break now BBL
SO it's prime time and every one is trying to log on right now...Skull Thor Q 392.
Vortex even has a Q. It's not as bad as Skull Thorn. We might want to consider just going with a low pop server till release as I'm sure it will fill as well.. I'll be on Team speak. Come talk to me and tell me what you think
09-17-2008, 07:18 AM
D'oh! Missed this post by a few minutes before diving back in.
Vortex had a small-ish queue at prime time but was pretty quiet prior. Skull Throne's queue just got worse. Of course, my concern is that the 18th will just repeat what happened with Skull Throne with Vortex since it's starting to push that same limit.
I suppose we'll go with Vortex for now, but still be prepared to move if its population explodes on Thursday too.

Quick question.. does warhammer have a monthly cost, like WoW?
09-17-2008, 01:50 PM
I believe its the standard $14.99.
09-18-2008, 03:54 AM
ok so then let me get this straight volkmar for order and vortex for distruction ? or are we going to do one faction? just curious
09-18-2008, 06:29 AM
Today is really the day we start to look at solidifying things. Both Volkmar and Skull Throne (our initial idea servers) had populations shoot through the roof with the pre-order release. Like, "Mythic asking people to go to other servers because they'd stretched the population limits as high as they could go" kind of shooting up.
As it stands, Vortex for Destruction...Order TBA if we opt to go that way. That could very well change by tonight if Vortex gets slammed by people coming in.
I'm playing on the Ungrim server right now for order....never thought I would like the "good guys" but hey...I have a lvl 12 there so I'm prolly going to be playing order for a bit.

09-19-2008, 04:29 PM
Iam gettign the game tomorrow , what server should i roll on to hang eith the atf guys from WoW ... and was thinking maybe going chosen if destruction and possibly runepriest or a tank class for order. Let me know
09-19-2008, 04:45 PM
Sorta appears to be:
Vortex - Destruction
Ungrim - Order
09-19-2008, 10:11 PM
Ungrim is where the parties at
stack'n those scenario's and beat'n this shit outta the destro kiddies is quite fun
12-30-2009, 09:08 AM
Anybody actually still playing this? I'm messing around with 3 toons below 10 as destruction on volkmar.
I quit sometime ago. I enjoyed it while I played, but lost interest (not sure why anymore).
