They say a picture is worth a thousand words... so here are my first 5,000, to go!
Well, like most of the other guilds, we eagerly anticipated the latest EQ Expansion, Rain of Fear, and have been super busy with the whirlwind of new expansion activity. We have now officially cleared Tier 1 of EQ as well as burning down our first raid in Tier 2 (more on that later). Special shout out to everyone who participated in our Surprise Saturday Incentive program as well as Zaborus, Mako, Kinvaras, and Noteefs, who were our first to ding 100; as well as Krink for his assistance the last few days. There are many others who deserve my thanks and appreciation as well. While there are certainly several items that need Sony's immediate attention to correct, overall the launch has been fairly smooth and there are many features that we really appreciate. Most notably, the bumps of both real xp and AA xp on all the missions makes them a heck of a lot more enjoyable to complete! Without boring you with the gory details, and also because I am both sick and tired; as well as needing to get back to the grind, this short note will have to suffice, but I will leave you with a collage of pictures provided by our lucky treasure troll, Bidaum.
My sincerest apologies for the website and server downtimes over the past 3 days. We lost several hard drives in our raid setup, these have been repaired and it's back to business as usual.
If you hear of anyone complaining about their bookmark for the TR site not working anymore, as of today, we disabled some old routing that was done during the site prep today. If an old book mark had nu-direction.com in it, folks just need to simply visit www.townshiprebellion.com and make a new bookmark.
There will be an upcoming outage for the website which will affect any items here off the main site, along with the forums. ROP display will not be impacted. Our site is being moved within the current site to offer us better security, etc. There is no action required on your part as a result of the maintenance, and the outage should take place Friday/Saturday of this week to lessen the impact upon the guild.
The DNS records were updated this morning. This means your old bookmarks will start working for this site in the next 24-72 hours for everyone.
Servers were taken offline this afternoon for a brief emergency patch. They are back online already, but allow yourself time for a quick patch.
