    Biggest release of the year!

    GOG as usual have a better (cheaper) offer: http://www.gog.com/game/grim_fandango_remastered Recently some old games i got via Steam were not working properly but they wre working very well when i got them through GOG so now when it comes to old games i use GOG only (now can't stop playing Commandos Ammo Pack ).

    Other MMOs to play?

    There is a new Steam offer for The Repopulation. Obviously the game is in it's final Alpha phase and will soon turn to the first Beta but it is normally playable. There are bugs, placeholders issues + performance issues in some places but in general the game is nicely playable. It is a pretty complex sandbox game so a lot of people may dislike the game at first (just like in EVE everything seems to difficult and complicated at first) but if people are looking for something really different to our typical SWTOR, WOW, LOTRO, RIFT games, they should at least have a read about The Repopulation. There are no classes, no levels etc. The Steam offer is expensive for a game in Alpha stage but like i said, this is only for those that are really bored with typical, linear MMO's.

    Things I do not like in mmo pvp

    That is why there usually are brackets (in battlegrounds, warzones or whatever you will call them). OWpvP is OWPvP with all the differences between players, including level differences. I pvp in almost every MMO i play (except LOTRO, pvp in LOTRO remains a wannabe pvp with it's slow skill reaction times) and i am all for gear differences. If i want equal conditions for everybody i go play MOH or any other first person perspective shooter. People who in MMO's whine about gear difference are usually those who: 1. are too lazy to grind for gear 2. have childish "i want everything and i want it now for free" mentality 3. are casual 4. give up too easily after beeing stomped (those people refuse to learn and refuse to listen to any tips given to them) 5. are mouse clickers and keyboard turners (those people will not accept the fact that even lesser geared players stomp them because they mouse click and keyboard turn). There are more reasons for people whining about gear difference. In last year or two my observations show that the overwhelming majority of whiners are those from point no. 2 above. They are often spoiled by newer games where pay to win systems are at work. Such people, when they show up in EvE or even SWTOR, they rage quit after first pvp encounter because they didn't win with their skill click mash in newbie gear or in their brand new Velator And to give an example from SWTOR: some time ago there was an entry gear for pvp newbies (recruit gear). It was free if i remember correctly and was designed solely for pvp and guess what...it was beeing sold by those newbies. So the gear was offered to them but they still refused. Now SWTOR pvp is a complete mess because of lack of focus on PvP from devs lead to more and more complete unaware newbies to join warzones totally destroying experience for dedicated pvpers.

    Not sure now, but it surely used to be possible to at least go a bit off the map near GV to 'unassigned: Fix Me' area. That was one of the way to summon very low chars to Ettens long time ago. I know it was possible to get to GV as a creep from DG but also not sure about it now. I would bet that none of the above is possible anymore but i don't play in Ettens anymore...

    Not want to derail anymore but i'm glad that some people understood yesterday what i meant. Not beeing english speaker i sometimes may sound confusing when trying to explain what i mean and often i lack the words or the meanings. So thanks Thunderloin and Nosam for explaining things for me. As you said i don't judge i just observe things how they are. It was such a waste of time to discuss this with you. I wrote so many times that i am aware that what i am observing is not a rule to every person from England and that i KNOW that not every person in England is like that and yet you still try to imply that i believe otherwise. You read people's minds? Unbelivable...

    They are just observations without going into the reasons. Just observations.

    Where? Where have i said that "Scots are great but the English, well they're just a bunch of rude wankers"? I repeat for the last time: i have huge experience in tourist flow (before my 6 years in the job i am at i worked for another 6 in another tourist related work and that one also also a foreign market), especially when it comes to foreigners. I don't say that nation X is bad and nation X is ok. I'm saying that IN MY OBSERVATIONS people from England are often more unpleasant towards others than other nations. Maybe your observations are different but that is how mine are.. Seems like it, yes.

    Dude it is you having problem with my observations. I'm not bothered with attitueds of those people as they do not concern me. How many times do i have to say that these are my observations? You may not agree with them but that is how they are. Also, nowhere in my posts i have said that people from England (all visitng) are bad and scots are ok (there are "pain in the ass visitors" in all countries). This is putting things in my mouth as you seem to be lacking arguments as you simply do not have such experiences obviously as i do due to the nature of my work. My observations form last 6 years are that people from England in some cases (often many cases) feel in some way better tha other nations from your Islands. It is also the case the other way around but that i don't get to see that much as clearly. That is it, you may not agree with my observations but you obviously do not work where i do so you can't say if that is true or not. You may just not belive. PS: also do some research since i think you know nothing about tourism in general, and see what nation is usually in top 5 of most unwelcomed in tourist destinations.

    My reaction is equal to everyone like i said. What i'm describing here is not attitude of people from England towards me or people from Poland. It's about my observations about the attitude of people from England towards people from Scotland, Wales and often Ireland. And please stop assuming about people who come here. I assure you i have almost full spectrum of people here: rich people, poor people, great people, stupid people, black people, white people and so on (yes all those groups go on holidays you know). Juts imagine a 4 or 5 star hotel in some very popular tourist destination. Do you think it's just one specific group of people from society visit these hotels? You get all kinds of people nit just "white middle class". There is no rule among those people who will be more "proud" towards other nations from you Islands. Sometime a very well educated and rich businessman can be very unpleasant but sometimes the same type will be ok. So it is not just "white middle class" as you try to imply. And just so you know, we already had about a 1000 visitors from England alone this year (and here i mean individual tourists, not coach groups that i don't get to meet) and i'm talking about my experiences from the past 6 years and every year it's more or less the same (i mean the attitude).

    No prejudice on my side, just my observations from last 6 years. I equally treat all people that come to visit. And people who frequents my establishment as you say it, are people from all around the world and it's not just one establishment but four. I can assure you that i deal with almost every country (even the exotic ones sometimes) around the globe in my job. And before they come i know where they live so i know if they are english, french, german or scottish. It's just that in many of those cases people that are not from England were just in one way or another confirming my observations (by saying it or just implying it indirectly etc.). Here i wanted to just say that what i wrote in the previous post was specifically about the relations between people from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Not about relations between people from England and other nations from all around the world. Why it is me you think that should change? I think it's someone else that should modify their approach a bit. Oh yes, of this i can assure you. The attitude i described is the same, regardless of race. I'm assuming you mean white, middle aged, middle class, affluent? Is that representative of all "English"? Have you ever been to England? In case you missed it in my previous post, i clearly stated that i know it is not or may be not a norm and i do not qualify this as such. Better read things first before jumping to conclusions about what i may think in my head: You just assume wrong. PS: yes i have been to England many times. Going to London again at the start of November for couple of days as it's my annual business trip there but i don't look forward to it unfortunately. I don't like London.

    I also wanted to add something here from a perspictive of someone who is not connected with English and Scottish in any way except...at work. I spend a huge ammount of time at my work (i work, let's say in tourism in general) with people from Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland etc. In past 6 years i have observed that people from England very often feel as better than people from Scotland, Wales (let alone people from Poland for that matter). I also observed that people from Scotland or Wales in many cases do not even want to speak to people from England when they are on holidays (they would normally talk with all other people but not english). I myself feel like many people from England coming here treat me like a lesser person while people from Scotland or other countries would never let me feel like this as they treat me just as a person like them. Maybe i will add to the wrong stereotype here but these are my observations from the past 6 years of spening majority of my time at work with the nationalities i mentioned above. These are not some random, rarely happening cases. Behaviour like this happened in many, many cases in the past 6 years which i of course understand is not a norm, may be an exception but still...it is happening. I feel like people from England very often feel better than others unfortunately. If i was a Scot i would deffinitely like to separate from England and not just for the reasons above. So i do support the YES voters tomorrow. @Edit: Oh ok Drul and LV. I thought that what Cossie meant is that on day one, upon joining EU you must intoduce Euro. Of course every country have to agree on this but in the end it can be prolonged for a very long time, effectively leading to not introducing Euro at all (Euro currency will collapse sooner or later anyway probably).

    Not sure i get the meaning here but new countries that join EU don't have to accept EURO as their currency, there are many examples (not sure if this is what you meant).

    Just so you know, there were more than one ways to get to the hidden hobbit village. The only flying i have done was very early in the game (think it was fixed by the end of 2007 or maybe somewhere in 2008). It could have been started in Archet but as we can see from Dorf ss, it can still be done in some areas?
  15. So where are you from? I would recommend getting a VIP sub for at least the first month (it's cheap imo but i understand if it's too expensive for you). For me, the F2P experience is just totally sub par compared to what VIP offers. Game will be just very grindy for you, should you decide to go full F2P. Answering your question though: in my opinion it will take lots of time. For simple deeds you get only 5 TP points and you really have to spend a lot of time in each region to finish enough deeds to even think about getting a region quests unlocked. The thing is that with VIP you can just enjoy the scenery and beeing in ME while with F2P you have to focus on stupid grind.
