Hiya. So, i don't know what to really say...  Confused

I registered here yesterday, during Vaygrims livestream and i have been following him for... About maybe half a year? I really don't keep track of these things. I'm 25, male, from Finland in case someone cares about that for whatever reason...

Let's try to get along, yeh?

Hi everyone.
I'm a relative newbie to Minecraft and am the epitome of casual gamer. I usually play a number of different games, hardly ever to completion. I started with Minecraft after watching a favorite youtuber (Master_Hellish) play modded and thought that looked cool as regular Minecraft didn't interest me. He was playing the Direwolf20 so I started playing that. Super fun pack and love his videos. I've learned so much from watching them. Doing a Youtube search for something led me to Vaygrim and then I finally had a chance to watch him stream the day he was on Forgecraft and went to Dire's base. I then watched his open letter to Direwolf20 and became hooked.

Watching another livestream I downloaded Vaygrim's Chance mod pack and have been playing that ever since.

I will say that I had a ball with the Direwolf20 pack, and FTB Unstable pack and I am sure I will play the new DW20 once it is updated, but playing the VC mod pack is fantastic. Between watching Vaygrim's videos on Project E, Direwolf's on RF Tools and other Youtubers I have progressed further in this playthrough than any other. Not that I am very far mind you, but at least I have a semi-coherent base, a Transmutation Table and some very basic RF generation going.

As I mentioned I have a very casual gamer. I play a lot of different things but especially like building games like Gnomoria, Civ, Minecraft, Banished as well as survival games like The Long Dark and Project Zomboid. Grand Strategy games like Crusader Kings II, EUIV and Stellaris have wasted a great deal of time too.


My Steam and Minecraft id is Ravenspath if anyone is interested in playing some multi-player games. I can't usually do voice chat but am happy to use in-game chant.

Hello Everyone!

Just thought I drop in and make a quick introduction. I am a mid-30's (lets say closer to 40 than 30) father of two who used to be a heavy gamer and have since found myself picking up the meager scraps of my personal time to game when I can. I am the Lead Systems Admin (the call us "System Engineers" ... but we are not engineers as I define an engineer) on the application server side of a company that specialized in cloud hosted Electronic Heath Record systems. I have been in IT for 18 years and I have been a gamer for about 22 years. Yes, I remember having my life changed by Wolfenstein 3D and Doom I :-). I've done everything from FPS to RTS to RPG and Racing. Nowadays I pretty much just play Minecraft with my kids and occasionally sneak in some GTA V, Rocket League, Stardew Valley, or whatever else is burning a hole in my Steam Library at the time.

When I was younger I was a hardcore gamer, but as the river of life has pulled me down her winding path, I find myself just looking to have a good time in the limited time I have available. This means hanging out with like minded folks who understand what it's like to be a gamer and then grow up and focusing on games that don't require a job-like schedule to continue making progress (I make an exception to that rule for Eve Online). I have been a lurker on Vaygrim's and Preacher's channels since VC Season 2 and since discovering Preacher and A7X on the GrimCo construction short series. Since then I have also added Ferg and the Bromigos into the rotation. After watching them over time and getting to know their vision for a gaming community through their content, I have finally decided to throw my hat in with the League of Ordinary Gamers. Here's to letting the good time roll!


Games I play in no particular order:

Minecraft (Family white listed VC3 Server and Bytesize Server)
GTA V

Stardew Valley
Eve Online (Off and on love/hate relationship)
Rocket League
Shadowrun Hong Kong
Borderlands 2 (When the wife and I have time to frag suckas together)

Games on the soon™ list:

Banner Saga 1 and 2 (When 2 next goes on sale)
A whole slew of awesome looking Telltale Games (Thank you Humble Bundle)
Saints Row (Starting series from 2)
Homeworld Remastered

Hello All,

I am a near-thirty year old long time gamer with a passion for tweaking / modding / exploring the wide world of computing.  I recently have switched to Overwatch as my primary game from Minecraft, but will most likely return to Minecraft with a vengeance at some point.  My primary Minecraft experience is with modded with a particular love of complex automation and magic mods.

Hit me up if you want to group up for Overwatch as I will be playing that game as much as possible.

  TLDR; Overwatch Tips
Posted by: mallrat208 - 05-15-2016, 06:01 PM - Forum: PC Gaming - No Replies

Overwatch is coming out Tuesday May 24th, to get ready for that I figured it would be cool to post and share any tips or information you may have about the game. I'll go ahead and start off by posting what I know.

General
Don't forget to use the Quick Melee Ability. It can often be easier to punch someone than get your weapon aimed at them in the heat of combat, and it may just kill them.


Attack

Soldier: 76
Heavy Pulse Rifle has a fairly significant damage drop off. You can't out play Widowmaker in most instances. Soldier 76 shines in mid range engagements. 
Biotic Field requires line of sight with the device to heal. Be careful where you place it.  It won't heal you around corners.
Tactical Visor will not lock on to turrets. An enemy team with Torbjörn or Symmetra can be dangerous if you end up in their line of fire while this ability is active.

Genji
Deflect can even reflect Ultimates if timed right. Do not fire on Genji when you see this ability up.

McCree
Fan the Hammer's recoil is almost directly up. When using this ability pull back on your mouse to get more shots on target.

Defense
Despite the name, these characters aren't strictly for defensive purposes. They tend to do very well at locking down areas rather than individual target damage be it from splash damage; Junkrat and Mei,  or the ability to lock down lanes of combat; BastionHanzo, Torbjörn, and Widowmaker

Bastion
Configuration: Turret is a very large damage boost for Bastion at the expense of Mobility. It is not without it's drawbacks however. When in turret mode, bastion has a large blue protrusion on his back that can be hit for additional damage. This makes him vulnerable to anyone capable of sneaking behind enemy lines.

Junkrat
Concussion Mine can be used for Damage, it can also be used to 'Rocket Jump' and get into places you couldn't otherwise reach as Junkrat. 
RIP-Tire is capable of climbing walls. Just hold jump. It's a great way to 'sneak' on to the point or behind enemies for the biggest effective boom. Speaking of walls, you are able to muffle the sound of the Tire by idling it against a wall. It can be a good way to trick the opposing team into thinking the tire has moved on. 

Mei
Ice Wall will by default pop-up perpendicular to the direction Mei is facing. If you hit the button for it again, it will rotate  and instead go the direction she is facing.

Tank
Not all Tanks are created equal. The primary thing they have in common is a moderate to high hitpoints.  They do have one thing in common however due to their size... large hitboxes. Stay away from shotguns.

D.VA has a high amount of armor, that means enemies like tracer that do a lot of little damage aren't much of a threat to her. When paired with a Mercy,she can be near unstoppable so long as you pick your fights. 
Reinhardt is a real Tank. His Shield blocks enemy fire but allows friendly fire out. Quite useful for advancing up a point or defending an objective. 
Winston excels at clearing control points and otherwise disrupting the enemy line thereby allowing his team to clean up the distracted members. 
Roadhog is primarily for picking apart the enemy team. In close range, very few characters can survive an encounter with his hook and scrapgun.
Zarya is the least tank like hero of the five. She's got the lowest amount of HP but has someone decent mobility considering. Her primary role is to punish enemy players that attack her or a teammate covered by her Barrier abilities. When the barriers are struck all damage is negated and Zarya gets a large boost to damage on her Particle Cannon.

Support

Lúcio
Crossfade is Lúcio's signature ability. It can either Heal Lúcio and those around him or increase their movement speed. Lúcio is able to toggle between the two modes at will. You can change this in the games options to instead have Crossfade default to Healing and switch to Speed Boost when the button is held down. So you can sprint when you hold Shift and default back to healing. This may be a good option to go for if you routinely find yourself forgetting to switch back into healing mode.
Sound Barrier provides a very large amount of Shields to your team when activated. It's best to save this ability for a concentrated push or to counter an enemy ultimate.

Mercy
Guardian Angel allows Mercy to leap to a teammates side be it for evasion or to get her within range to heal them. It can be used in combat, but it can also be used to sneak a healer into the back lines on certain maps. 
Angelic Descent allows Mercy to slow her fall by holding the jump button. In conjunction with Guardian Angel you can get a pretty good length of time in the air.
Resurrect has a limited range. You need to be near your fallen teammates to be able to bring them back. Don't be afraid to use it early and often. You build up the charge for this ultimate by healing targets. So long as someone is taking damage and you're healing them, you'll be able to Resurrect fairly often.

Symmetra
Photon Projector is Symmetra's primary weapon. It also happens to be one of the strongest weapons in the game. It's primary fire is a beam of light that locks on to nearby enemies and ramps up in damage the longer it's active. It's secondary fire emits an energy ball that deals high damage and can hit multiple targets.
Sentry Turrets are short ranged damage that lock on to a target like Symmetra's Photon Projector. They also slow down anyone hit by them. The more turrets that are hitting a target, the more pronounced the slow effect will be. As they have very low HP, it's usually a good idea to space out the turrets at different elevations and positions to prevent someone from quickly removing them if they get caught.
Teleporter is primarily useful on Defense side of escort maps where you have a long walk from your spawn room to the payload. The Teleporter has limited uses which are shown on your screen. After used up the Teleporter with self destruct. You will not gain any ultimate charge until after the Teleporter is destroyed. Use it early, use it often.

Brick Dungeons & Dragons/Tabletop RPGs (Revived)
Posted by: Roserer - 05-12-2016, 03:24 PM - Forum: Community Events News - Replies (7)

Hiya Big Grin

So I saw there was a post a while ago about starting a D&D group open to the community. I want to revive that idea! I've never DMed before but I've been really wanting to try it.

We would be using the Roll20 website (google it, it's great). As for time, I will create a strawpoll or a Google form to figure out when everyone interested will be available.

If you don't feel like playing but want to watch, I can set up a way for people to spectate. I'll probably set up a livestream and set it to unlisted. If I end up livestreaming from the DM's perspective it will show all my notes, so I do ask that if you are spectating, you do not share info with players. And I ask that players do not log on to the stream.

So who would be interested?

[EDIT:]
So it looks like people are interested! If you are one of those people, please fill out this form to make this easier for me: http://goo.gl/forms/PHQTkd8syK
Also feel free to invite friends to fill this out. I don't mind you including your friends, but I do not want friends of a friend to be joining. I'm doing this in case we don't get enough players.

  Summoners War?
Posted by: Roserer - 05-11-2016, 06:06 PM - Forum: Mobile Gaming - Replies (3)

Does anyone else here play Summoner's War? For those who don't know it's similar to Pokemon with heavier JRPG aspects. You collect monsters by using summoning scrolls and level them up. Then you send a team to battle & clear out levels in different locations on the map. Locations can be played over and over with harder levels as you progress with better loot on the harder levels.

There's more to it than that and overall is a very fun app and good time killer. Just be careful, if you leave it running it can drain battery quickly.

Hiya! I'm Rose!

I just joined the forum after watching Vaygrim's stream today. I'm super into modded Minecraft but mostly only play it casually (I play it a lot but I dislike hardcore and other bits like that) I'm excited to have found a community based on people who feel similarly.

I saw the post about a D&D group within this forum and how it was posted a few months ago without many responses. I'm interested in reviving that idea if no one else has already. Maybe even open it up to tabletop gaming in general. I've been developing an easy-to-play, user-friendly, quick session homebrew that I'd love to try out. Smile  

Anyways, I'm excited to be here!
