Order goes on the offensive

Last night, Order on the Badlands server got a little organized and decided to go on the offensive. It started around 8pm est in Kadrin valley. I joined up with CoW's new alliance, Echelon, and we made a warband. I would estimate there were a total of 3 warbands (give or take a few groups) operating at that time.

Each warband had different objectives, so we quickly took the map. Destruction was being contained near their warcamp but that did not last long. Soon they had pushed us back to the keeps. Sadly, this was before we could lock the zone. Eventually the keeps fell, but most of Order had been moved to Reikwald by that time and were in the process of taking over the zone.

This is about the time I had to go. My time there was fun, but a little demoralizing due to the huge number of Destruction that we tried to defend KV against. This morning showed that Order was actually victorious! We ended up locking KV, Reikwald and Praag... giving us the upper hand in the conflict. This is the first time I can remember this happening, so there is hope.

In other news, I managed to increase my Engineer's damage quite a bit with some experimentation. I know I am late to the party on Unshakable Focus, but this really does help out the Grenade spec'd Engineer. When used with Napalm Grenade and Strafing Run, I was able to get damage close to 1,000 on my Rank 33 guy. One poor WE ended up taking damage of ~850 and then ~960 within a couple seconds.

To really test, I need to do some combat log file analysis. Has anyone made a web based tool yet?


Haven't tried it yet so I don't know how well it works.
