Mythic Frustrations

"Rest assured I was on the internet within minutes registering my disgust throughout the world." - Comic Book Guy

Last night was not a good night for me and WAR. I didn't have too much time to play, so i thought I would hop on and have some fun. It started out promising, as Destruction was on the move in both Tier 3 and Tier 4. Looks like they are making a push for the capital. Should mean plenty of action.

So I headed off to Dragonwake to help defend a keep. Order managed to arrive in the inner keep just as they captured the keep, trapping us all inside. So that did not go so well and the warband disbanded. Next, an ally mentioned that they were attacking the keep in Black Fire Pass. I get down there and only find there are 3 of us defending the keep. Needless to say, we lose.

None of that is Mythics fault though. I am 1 bar from 31, so I figure I can get in a couple of scenarios and get a level. After that, back to the world RvR. I get in the scenario and the server CRASHES. So that pretty much ended my night of WAR.

There was really no point on waiting for it to come up, all open RvR would take a while to get started again, if anyone even wanted to. Even scenarios would take a while as everyone has to log back in. I feel pretty bad for Destruction, they are trying to play the game and take the capital city, but are prevented by bugs and server crashes.

I do not get too much prime-time gaming due to other responsibilities. I feel pretty bad I wasted it on WAR last night.


If it makes you feel any better, the scenarios weren't popping either. Definitely some flaky server behavior last night and I took that as a sign to log off early to get some needed sleep myself.

I was in the Reikland Factory scenario for about an hour last night in T3 and it popped once. Not that it mattered because I was disgustingly lagged out.

To quote another Simpsons character: "Boo-erns!"

Hopefully, this server maintenance will fix all the problems.

Here's what you do next time WAR is being a pain-grab your Fallout 3 disc, pop it in the computer, and raise hell in the capital wasteland!!

Seriously though, I think everyone has gaming nights like that.

@Jayedub: Well I did go play another game, but it wasn't Fallout 3. I must make Fallout 3 time.
