I wanted to say thanks for all the peeps that came out and logged into the new Tenacious guild in SWTOR for the first day of March Madness ... I had a good time seeing some old friends and getting to know some members who have been playing other games.

Just leveling some last night and listening to Grouchy, Averie, CranberryJeus (which I still read as CranberryJesus everytime), LoanWolf and Sweerad was entertaining enough ...

The game seems a bit more polished than when it was released ... I think I'll have a good time with it this month. Gonna try to do Black Talon sometime tonight

It sure is Para! Also, they changed low level BT to a 2 person instance as opposed to 4.

Lemme see if I can get Surgemonkey out of Minecraft for a change!

Who are you calling dumb?

.. Dumb or otherwise, someone's gonna find themselves back at the pound soon.
'I'm here to return this. This one's broken.'
'All it does is pee on everything.'
'And drink all the beer.'

It pees on everything because it drinks all the beer ... can't really blame him there

This sums up why we have so much antidote for jelly fish stings at the beach...it starts with the crazy amount of beer we have.

And crazy amounts of beer equals...

Next time this happens... should be a competition to see who can make the tallest tower :p

Also I hate how SWTOR basically makes you sub :/ Can't believe how bad the CC market has gotten since launch.

But at least story is still good... just like playing KOTOR again... damn I should play that again... and Ocarina of Time.. and Arcanum... and..... *trails off into nostalgia land*

Gonna be on tomorrow (Thursday) on my March Madness toon ... lvl 19 Merc

Would like to do a Kuat if anyone is up for it ... haven't done one and they didn't have them around when the game was originally launched, so I have no idea how they work

Granted I only played for a short while the first few days of March, but I have to agree with this. I played at release but not at any point after the F2P conversion. Starting over again from the beginning, I felt like the game reminded me every few minutes that I needed to sub if I wanted a full experience. It was a bit much. Nevermind the fact that I was a Huttball addict when I played previously and I wouldn't be able to relive those days without, you guessed it, subbing. :(

If you want the full experience and game...
You "have" to sub.

How dare they!!

All poking aside. .. the cartel market is very well designed. If you really wanted to play with no limitations... you can simply buy coins and get all of the unlocks. Other than the weekly warzone, ops, and flashpoint passes you would need to get if that is all you did...

Then you can play the full game sans subscription.
So far, i have yet to see a F2P game that plays and looks like a AAA game. There is so much crap to sift through in the MMO genre.

You misunderstand me. I have no issue with a game trying to convince you to sub and/or buy their premium currency. A business is a business. I was just saying that given the F2P limitations and the fact that I don't have a desire to sub for this particular game, I found it hard to continue playing.

I usually only sub to one game at a time, and FFXIV currently has me by the short and curlies. :p

You missed the point of March Madness altogether ... it was never about the game, it was about the people

I fully understand that there are active chapters running in Tenacious right now ... Aion, FFXIV, SWTOR and Skyforge Beta. No one ever asked anyone to leave their game completely, and no one was required to vote at all if they didn't want to participate.

I still play Aion and I still play Skyforge, but I play SWTOR at nights when I see everyone in channel so that I can hang out with them and play the game

The rules were simple and joining was completely voluntary. There were people that voted that never even made the effort ...

I voted, I'm sticking with it. And I've had fun getting to talk to Slash and Xandart and Grouchy again and meeting others that I had not met before.

That was the whole point. But if you voted and never even tried ... that's on the individual. To each his/her own.

I've never made a big deal about it ... but I applaud everyone that's honored their commitment and I will honor mine as well

I think i actually have played with more tenacious people since march madness began. Moreso than in Archeage even.

Yeah i was playing SWTOR before MM... but we have a good group of ppl to play with... and even more now.

Thanks March Madness...
You're the best.

I agree Para. I've really enjoyed getting to know a few folks that I might have crossed paths with briefly in AA, but hadn't really talked to much. Getting to know more people and helping them out has been a blast!

I'm even leveling a tank, a role I have never actually played before.

Yeah right. Sylvara has been packing her shit and moving. And I doubt we are getting a forwarding address.

Just saying.

Seems march madness made it to 2/3 of the month. Other than 5 or 6some ppl, the guild roster shows a week + since last login.

Hopefully some of you stay :)

Sylvara and I are deep into packing for the move. Our online time has been very limited.

But we will be on sporadically through the coming week. Just need to make sure we have everything ready for April 1

Niz and I are loving SWTOR and the MM event! We are discussing x-ferring to the main guild, but either way it won't be until April. This week will be mostly spent preparing for our trip to Emerald City Comicon. We are flying out Thursday, so we probably won't be on this weekend (plus TWD Season Finale Sunday Night). We'll most likey catch up with everyone mid to late next week.

Have fun and, "remember Peace is a Lie..."
