It seems that people feel that they've gotten a good look at the different teams, and want to decide this now, instead of in a week and a half.

I can handle that. Sorry if anyone was pushing for NC - it looks like we're not going to have the patience for an NC test.

So, I see three choices

1. Vanu
2. TR
3. Vanu and TR (we switch between them).

We can add 4 in there:

4. NC

But, I don't think 4's going to have much chance.

The problem with 3 (Vanu and TR) is that we'll have to decide ahead of time which team we're playing and when. It gives us more flexibility but it probably means we'll have some that refuse to switch back and forth. They'll tend to stay with the team they like and just wait for us to switch back.

I don't think 3 is the best of choices, because of that. It'll tend to divide us, and we don't have huge numbers anyway.

So, lets just keep it to 1 or 2 - Vanu or TR.

Let's have a straight vote/poll. We'll give this through tomorrow night for everyone to see it and vote. Then we'll go with whatever wins on Thursday morning.

By the way, if it matters to anyone - I don't really care either way any more. Vote for the team you like, for whatever reason. Lets just pick a team and get together and play. Whatever we pick, if we're a team, we should have fun.

You can throw NC on the poll... I'd say a good chunk of us have plenty of experience over there.

I think the majority just want to get started, there's nothing wrong with testing other empires as we go along on spare time. I assume making an outfit is as easy as a few clicks of the button.

I really cant explain it, but I like the feel of TR better...I know it sounds stupid.

VOted Vanu because it seems to be the better choice for BR6 characters like me. That and the TR Maxes really are not that good.

Vanu. I hated TR Weapons, I couldn't get a single kill. They're rolling in on Vanu.

Voted Vanu as I think it will keep the most happy, but I'll be fine with TR also

No prizes for guessing what I voted for. That said I'm not against playing multiple empires, but it would have to be on different servers. I don't like the idea of playing Vanu and taking Cyssor on a Friday, only to try and grab it back as a Terran on a Saturday.

... and please don't vote on this if your not actually going to be playing.

Are we then going to vote from moment to moment as to our in game objectives?

What we need is for someone to step up, be the leader and put an end to this hand-wringing. "We're playing as ____, log in and get in the platoon and get ready to work as a team."

I didn't vote because I don't care what color my silly outfit is, I just want to play with Shadowclan.

I'm calling you out Xorv. Very Happy

Vanu's ganna win anywho Lag's, considering how many people we'll have running around. Around 2/3's have already voted.

I was this close *holds index and middle fingers next to each other* to voting NC, but then it felt like voting for the Green party so I caved in and voted VS.

Btw the ballot was confusing.

You want to give me authority? You really must be crazy! Shocked

No serriously I'm not a good in-game leader, I don't mind adminstrative responsibilities, but with K'Dah here no need for that really.

I do like coming up with ideas and debating ideas, hence all my posts here. Next issue after empire choice is how we organise ourselves so we can play as a team.

Voted Terran Republic.


Not because they are the "underdog", or because they offer more of a challenge (In fact, all the factions seem to be quite evenly matched. I have seen TR VS and NC all win some nights), or because they have nifty red uniforms.

I voted for them because I don't like energy weapons, I prefer the more conventional feel of the TR weapons.

I'll still roll up a Vanu (if that's how the clan goes, which seems most likely now), but I can't promise that I won't also be sniping at some of you from the TR side from time to time. I just like that faction better.

I like the idea of doing an Armored Division. Tanks, MAX-Suits, and Light Armor (buggies etc). But as always, my first and primary character will be a sniper (man I hate those stupid dumb dumb stupid stupid stupid Energy weapons - my backup assault rifle is going to be the dumbest ray gun ever!).


We could also do an infiltration infantry unit and take down towers and bases together with infantry and MAX-Suits.

Voted NC (for Nocturne) What can I say, already have a br25 there.

As for forming an outfit, it requires a full squad of 10 un-outfitted people to do so. So if you want one, best get cracking on a schedule.

After everyone has had some play time in both TR and Vanu, and things have been discussed some, the poll comes out with Vanu as the clear winner.

If I saw a good 'Shadowclan reason' for picking one of the other teams instead, I wouldn't have taken a poll, I would have just made the decision and we would have gone with it. But, I didn't see such a reason, so a poll seemed appropriate.

From this point on (or at least until the next balance patch, when we'll probably discuss all of this again) we're Vanu.

Let's all get together in-game and form an outfit.

I forget, do they all have to say yes to form? Or just be in a full squad?

Do we have 10 people?

I hope we aren't going to be switching factions after every patch. It'll get too hectic.

We have 10 people, just not always online at the same time. We should set some specific time during the evening (tonight for instance) when we are all on just to form up the outfit. (Assuming people's faction timers aren't still running to prevent them logging on).

Not after every patch - discuss the possiblity after every balance patch.

Balance patches don't happen very often. My impression is once a year or so.

My faction timer is fine, been playing Oblivion while waiting on y'all to decide Twisted Evil

Laghed is over in Taiwan as I recall, so probably need to define a time that would let everyone plan ahead a bit.

I suggest Friday Evening, 10pm EST, 7pm PST, 10 AM Saturday morning for Laghed. Just a suggesttion, and meet in VS sanc of course. I'll roll and post a VS name this evening, gonna try to reuse Mamba if it will let me.
