    Well, Alex Creator didn't last long.

    Neat that they killed savage, but what really stands out to me is their hot keys, idk how people use shift or crtl with keys past 7 with any sort of comfort, how do you position your hands?

    I use my pinky to hold down left side shift/ctrl and use my index finger to press the numbers, it's a a bit of a pain to go 7 and above

    That soon already
    I thought it would take longer to beat those savage modes.
    Some of the banter between my LS friends were saying that they made Sophia EX and Alex Savage easier than previous trials and raids because SE wanted more people to do that content.

    Not sure if I believe it myself, the later normal Alex raids are a doozy.

    There's an interview with Yoshi P where he says the same thing. They'd rather have a bunch of people running savage and having fun than having 10 FCs competing for weeks to try and beat them.

    There is actually a theory that Alex Creator is a test for a possible 3 difficulty raid version in 4.0. So this would be the midcore step and an actual savage version on top which would be either Midas or even Gordias difficulty.

    Probably not gonna happen but it would be nice somehow.

    I mean, that'd bring it almost inline with the other large MMO (WoW) which has 4 raid difficulties if you count LFR and 4 Dungeon difficulties counting Mythic+

    raiding looks fun, but all I heard are horror stories of elitist hardcore raiders so it's got me pretty well put off to even trying.

    Had a friend who actually ended up deleting his char and quitting the game cause of how a shitty static his friend got him into treated him

    Join a friendly FC, make friends, and bam you have a raiding group.

    Plug for the g600. It takes a bit to get used to playing with a mouse like this but once you do you'll never be able to go back to playing MMOs like you used to.

    From my understanding, Gordias wasn't mechanically hard either. It was just hard to meet DPS check with the gear available at the time (I've not done Savage so I could be wrong) and made Gordias a huge grind.

    FC's/Goons also seem to agree that the removal of cooldowns on a wipe helped a ton.

    Edited:

    Also keep in mind FCs like Elysium are some of the best in the world, YMMV

    The mechanics in Gordias were functionally very simple but very difficult to actually pull off, in addition to the huge DPS checks that made A3S such an absolute wall that broke the raiding community so badly.
    In Midas, the DPS checks were made much more lax and the mechanics were significantly easier to pull off, but there were a lot more of them that made it complex despite the relative ease of each mechanic in question.
    Saying they're "mechanically hard" is a tad tough to do when they're hard in pretty much their own directions.

    I agree with everything except for midas a bit.. the mechanics were for the most part simple (except for A8S, especially with no water sac), but they were also really punishing or kinda bs (like the A7S tether explosion that can oneshot you if you're close to the jail with the magic vuln up from bomb.. annoying for padlocks).

    I think that was the bigger problem with it, not much the amount of mechanics. one person dying or failing mechanics would doom the entire party, directly or indirectly, which sucked ass for progression

    Its kind of funny that 4 different RMT bots PM'ed me in sequence as I reported them. In the two weeks I've been playing prior to this being added I'd get PM'ed maybe once an evening. And I find it a bit messed up that my brother can't make a character on the same server as me due to character creation restrictions, yet somehow there is a steady influx of spam bots.

    EDIT: This might be common sense, but you should take a screenshot with the offending PM on screen for every one of these that you use the report function on. If nothing else it could be useful to prove they existed at one point if they happen to be making bots, spamming for a period then deleting in an attempt to wipe their tracks.

    Those restrictions don't extend to character transfers, do they? Anyone making money off of RMT could easily afford the $18 or so to keep bringing bots over from other servers.

    While I have yet to play any of the mini games, I will say that the Golden Saucer oddly makes me feel like I felt when I was a kid and we went to Coney Island. It gets the whole amusement park thing down.

    Then again, the only other thing I have to compare it to in MMORPGS is the "casino" in Ragnarok Online. Quotations because despite NPCs going on about fabulous prizes and such, none of the games in that are playable.

    Considering the Smithsonian Locks have a 1/100 chance of actually occuring (and I believe only from rare sacks at that - which are identifiable when you get the two things that appear before it starts glowing in appraisal), that's actually a pretty early catch on getting those.

    Jeez, a whole shitton of leveling bots were out tonight on Leviathan. Its nice that they added a means to report RMT, but a quick means to report gibberish named people who, most likely through their bot manipulating data packets, appear to just leap to their destination would be nice too. I know I'm late, this is the first time I'm seeing bots that don't just spam and PM advertisements in this game.

    It's the best facial expression!

    How's everyone's squadrons going? I feel like mine has been leveling so slowly, and I never have the right stat combinations to complete some of the harder quests.

    I got mine of the first sack I ever got. I wasn't aware of how rare it was before that. Friend of mine went through 340 sacks before she gave up and just bought the thing.
