    He was using Sony Vagas he said, what I tried to use for mine, but I've never used it before and was just getting to understand some of it
  4. ALS Icebucket challenge

    That makes silver challenged twice, since Ap0c already challenged Silver already.

  6. Answers about C.E.L.

    There has been a lot of thread spamming about this topic lately and I apologize for adding to it, but I wanted to add a thread that embodies all the conversation on C.E.L. instead of having a separate thread for individual C.E.L.-related comments. C.E.L. = Council to Eliminate Legion For those unaware, C.E.L. was originally a Florida based alliance of Swarm and Faceless against Legion. It has since spread to other areas. It is no different than Swegion or whatever you call Faceless and Legion (Facegion? Legless?). I spent some time with C.E.L. before becoming Legion and have to say, their best attribute that makes them such a devastating force, isn't their numbers, but their organization. Who leads C.E.L.? C.E.L. leads C.E.L. There is no “one” distinct leader. As in any group, clique, family, etc. there are those who take on a leadership role. These are often the people who are more outspoken/charismatic, those with the ability to rally others behind them. They may be Swarm or Faceless, and they may change from one moment to another as members join and leave with different personalities. How Many members does C.E.L. have? It is hard to say how many members C.E.L. has because not everyone in C.E.L. is either active or in Groupme. Some Swarm and Faceless just observe the alliance because a member of C.E.L. mentioned it to them. Does C.E.L. dominate by its numbers? The key to C.E.L.'s strength is not in their numbers, but in their coordination with their active members. Having been a part of both Legion and C.E.L. rooms, the numbers are relatively close in active members, but Legion is a lot more disorganized. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that much of Legion members are in Northern FL and a few of the Southern members are no longer around, leaving a select few Legion in South Florida. Why are so many complaints coming from Florida? As has been complained about, Florida is unique from the rest of the U.S., in that it doesn't have any land bordering more than 75% of it. Also, Florida is 721km long, so for some of us in south FL, all attacks are limited to whatever is in our immediate area and North of us. For those in other states, imagine your range to be about 150 km on all sides except north, where you get your full 400 km range. Does C.E.L. Pressure other Faceless/Swarm to join? No. In my time in C.E.L., never have I heard anyone say, I guess I’ll be in C.E.L., I was given no choice. Does C.E.L. Attack non-C.E.L. Faceless/Swarm? C.E.L. is an alliance in its own. While their primary target is Legion, it is open game for non-members as well. For the most part, C.E.L. leaves these non-C.E.L., Faceless/Swarm, alone, unless those individuals are causing issues. I’ve heard some C.E.L. swarm that have truces with non-C.E.L. Faceless and vice-versa as well as some having drawn out battles with each other. In most cases, the non-C.E.L. Swarm/Faceless is left alone in case they later decide to join C.E.L. or in case they actually are a member (inactive or non-Groupme user) or observer of the truce. Does Faceless/Swarm Hold More Power in C.E.L.? Nope. When I had first joined, one of the first things I remembered was a lot of talk about how evenly distributed zones were. In fact, Tetra has a post supporting this [Here] that shows how close in numbers Swarm and Faceless are. One of their biggest emphasis is on equality between the two factions and I’ve even heard in ops, “Okay, Faceless captured the last zone, so this one is yours, Swarm.” (…and vice versa). You are Bullying New Legion Players into Quitting or Switching! The role of the game is to fight, this is a war game. As Faceless, I fought with Legion Newbies, as Legion, I will fight Swarm/Faceless Newbies. If they quit because of that, then this game isn’t for them. In fact, you level faster by attacking zones, then you do by stacking them. The idea is strategy and survival of the fittest! Conclusion Whether it were C.E.L. or if all the C.E.L. members were Faceless or all Swarm, it wouldn’t matter. In fact, it would likely be even worse for Legion, since it is easier to unify all as one faction, at least this gives C.E.L. a handicap in that they are limited in being able to support each other without attacking each other.
  7. Why is your faction better?

    Are you sure it is pronounced Conquer and not Concur (to act together to a common end or single effect; to come together)?
  8. Mai! WTF did I just watch?! LOL
  9. Any options besides qommnd?

    Some have created their own for their own area, but remember, they changed the API's so that you no longer can identify recent attacks. YOu can't see the attacks until a few hours after they happen, and I think they mentioned something about blocking seeing who attacked and only seeing color, but not sure.
  10. Answers about C.E.L.

    No, it isn't join or die. It is, if you are Legion, you die! If you are not, you are safe unless you attack CEL (or are annoying someone: in CEL or a friend of CEL).
  11. Answers about C.E.L.

    The question still remains, how is it any different if CEL all became Faceless or all became Swarm? Other than them becoming even more powerful? As for relying on qommnd for proof, I don't use that anymore since half the time, active players, don't show up on there. I've seen legion students of jbrockman, stacking zones, but qommnd didn't even list them as actual players, or if it did, it showed a few deployments way back. And all that was before the API change to block seeing recent activity. I will agree though, just because a Swarm player isn't in CEL, doesn't mean they don't observe the truce. As for assisting non-CEL members. That is up to each individual member. If a CEL member wants to help a non-CEL member, they will do it of their own accord, just depends on their personality, individually. But no, a CEL member would not assist a non-CEL in attacking another CEL member, that would make no sense. Your arguments on support make very little sense. The ONLY argument you have, is that it is unfair, the number of CEL members vs the number of Legion, and even that is close, but because of being in Florida, the spread makes it difficult.
  12. Answers about C.E.L.

    Yes, if a member of CEL is attacked by a non-member of CEL (be it Swarm or Faceless), that CEL member has a right to defend themselves. It makes sense that they would defend themselves. I fought as a newbie, and I'm sure you must have fought as a newbie. That is the game. It is NOT sit in a corner and stack and hope no one knocks your pretty tower down. It is how you learn. A tower gets knocked down, next time it is rebuilt better, stronger. I'm not sure why the complaint though, as their Faceless vs non-CEL Swarm or their Swarm vs non-CEL Faceless should only prove helpful to us Legion. In regard to the "2" non-CEL Swarm in Florida. I pulled up the top 50 list and Florida and about 5 or 6 Swarms names, I didn't recognize during my membership in CEL.

    I do, but no one is in it :-P er... Very few are in it, I mean
  14. Qonqr gamer council

    I agree. I'm not saying it is impossible, but it is hard to tell who all you can really trust. With such a large group, you have lots of room for someone to be using the room for info and possibly backstab another member by a) locking a declared family or b ) claiming a multiscoper is a family
  15. There has been a lot of hate on the new update recently, and I understand the frustration that this update has caused many of us, but I wanted to post something as a player, hoping it means something coming from a member of the community, that wouldn't feel the same coming from an admin/developer, looking down. Please read the entirety of the post, before responding. Sync-Lock is in its 2nd day. Emotions are heightened at the change, as it is a normal human reaction to fear change. Change can break things, change can ruin things, it can disrupt that which you have grown so accustomed to. Change can also fix things, or lead to fixes. From what I've heard so far, here are some of the big issues that have arisen: Now that multi-scoping is legal, the flood gates have been opened and we are going to get tons of multi-scopers Just because multi-scoping is now allowed, doesn't mean you have to do it out of fear someone else will. It also doesn't mean others will jump at it. I've heard from many players, members of swarm, legion, and faceless, that state, depite this change, they will not condone multi-scoping. This isn't to say no one will, but those who do may be outcasted and/or sync-locked, possibly even by their own faction. [*]I got Sync-Locked, now I'm not going to be able to play anymore. Sync-Lock is only 24 hours. So you got locked with someone today. Just means tomorrow, alter your playing style a little. Keep working at it. Eventually, you might be able to work it out Also, work it out for a few days, cost someone their virus for several days, chances are, they'll stop trying to sync-lock you. [*]I just got sync-locked with a person I don't even know. ​Then someone just got lucky, and chances are, it won't happen again, or at least only rarely. Especially if it starts costing them their Virus packet each day. [*]This will be awful for syncing team attacks/defense, since the opposing side could just Sync-Lock the other. How often do you play within 1 mile of your team. It seems the majority use Chat applications such as GroupMe or Line to communicate and sync attacks. It don't matter if your attacks are synced, if you are at least 1 mile away. Lets say, perhaps you have a team: A, B, C, D, E, and F. You all communicate a sync attacks via chat, but two of those members actually know each other and live/work together. What are the odds that it will be discovered that the 2 that live together are C and E? It is about strategy, the poker face. Don't let your enemies know who you are, and who you live/work with. [*]Most multi-scopers are also cubers and will pay for continuous inoculations while those who are innocent will suffer. ​Are most thieves also murderers? Are most gun owners also abortionists? You can't group two types of people together because their both controversial groups so they must be the same? The main reasoning I hear behind this is that the "dishonorable" act of multi-scoping and the having of money means these people have the two things necessary to multi-scope. A lack of character and money to buy inoculations and devices. [*]This isn't all true. I don't cube, I don't have tons of money to waste on games or devices, but I have access to several devices, because: I wok in IT for a big company I have many friends and family whose phone I could use My wife owns both a phone and a tablet, I own a phone, and I have a work phone. We are about to upgrade our phones and have the option to keep our old phones, which adds 2 more phones. Technically, I could start a one many army, but doesn't mean I'd be willing to pay for inoculations. [*]This is just going to lead to more people paying to win, just in other ways. ​When people pay to win, in a way, we all win, as I will bring out below... Say the worse of this is true! Say the flood-gates have been opened and now multi-scopers are everywhere, paying for inoculations, spending money constantly. That means more money to developers, which in turn means more staff that they could afford, which in-turn breeds more developments, more updates. With more updates and more to do, the game becomes more interesting and more people play. The game gets bigger and bigger and eventually something new has to happen because everyone could be sync-locked to each other, since there would be more players in a close proximity to each other. Also, remember, this is a game of WAR. War, like life, is unfair. Just because there are specific rules in warfare that you abide by, doesn't mean everyone else will. Just because one decides to use to their advantage, certain things that you aren't willing to do, doesn't meant they will win. This is a game of WAR, and more importantly, it is a GAME. Everyone has the same options available to him/her, which keeps the game balance, we just have to adapt, learn to make it work for us without turning on our own conscious. Lastly, and one of the most important points, this is a NEW update. This is new to everyone, including the developers. Testing can only go so far, before release, at finding bugs. There are bound to be bugs that will be found and possible tweaks that could be made. This all come in time, after usage shows how things develop. I have to say, it is rare in any entertainment community, whether it be gaming, movies, TV, music, etc, that one of the key developers of that "entertainment" would be willing to come out and speak to the fans, the consumers. This should go a long way for many of us that are concerned. The fact the Silver has been offering to enter GroupMe chat rooms to talk to alliance groups, teams, etc., and try to address concerns, shows the concern they have for their community. In chat with him today, he tried to crack a few jokes to lighten the mood, before stating he was off to read some hate mail. I know many are against this change, but all I'm saying is give it time. Don't jump the gun on how awful this is going to be, especially when your concern is for how awful this is going to be for others. Some of the people complaining, are also people not being affected, and some of those, that I know were affected, I have barely heard anything from. Lets ride this out, so that the people with legitimate concerns, can gain the focus, and whatever needs to be done is done.
  16. Wait, there is an exp. date on the money I have in my MS account? Also, I like the new system of currency vs points. It makes more sense then trying to figure out how $10 makes about 800 points or something along those lines.
  17. Sync-Lock isn't that bad

    Yeah my studies show that colors make it easier read. (My studies being me asking myself what colors do for a long message)
  18. Sync-Lock isn't that bad

    You're supposed to say First! when you do that. Also, I'm about to add a new bullet point on working as a team
  19. Green Screen Ideas

    I liked the news report idea, but my be too similar to Ingress, would have to make it somewhat unique. Either way, I like the idea of using it to somehow advance the lore of the game. It makes the game more interesting and may also help in bringing in new players, whether it be through news reports or some other method. Idea, to make it more unique, have the events being told from the POV of QONQR. Could use a Text-to-Audio so acting may not even be necessary, though, then a green screen may also be unnecessary :-p QONQR could be discussing events, battle situations. Perhaps green screen would then be used by you guys just for videos on updates. Get a few lab coats and make it like these updates are part of lore, advancements in the nano-tech and such.

    Question is, will you be able to resurrect BLAB
  21. What Should Happen to Atlantis Now?

    In seriousness, I like many of the ideas presented forth so far and hope to see new World battle zones in the future: - North Pole - Bermuda Triangle (maybe even could be a 3 zone battle) - Fountain of Youth - Camelot - Jurassic Park etc
  22. What Should Happen to Atlantis Now?

    Well, of course, Atlantis looks more like this: LOL
  23. Subliminal Messages?

    Really, the only things I could think of, that would be competitive to increased dmg and def, would either be increased range or quicker scope recharge
