There's been ALLLLLL kinds of activity on these boards since the guild fell apart in WoW. Huge shocker. HILYMI as a guild might have worked, but there's no real cohesion in a generic "gaming" community unless we're all playing the same game(s). Well, ces le vis.
So for those who want to join me I will be playing FireFall a lot when I'm not working on miniatures. I reactivated the mumble server (10 person limit) in case people want to join me there. For those who don't know much about FireFall, visit http://www.firefallthegame.com. It's a first person shooter, skill based, free to play (yes really free to play) MMORPG which is more focused around dynamic and casual, pick up and play game play instead of regular scheduled game play.
I knew about this game since it was in closed beta and am one of the founders with the permanent resource and xp bonus for being a founder. I also reserved HILYMI as an army tag as a commander founder. For those who wish to join me let me know and I can give you an army invite. If people actually start playing the game, I'll put in more effort into making our website, gallery, etc all up to date and even skin it a bit to make it embrace the sci-fi nature of FireFall.
I will be livestreaming under the name CyberVicLive, (http://www.twitch.tv/CyberVicLive/) since Livistos is now dead, forever with World of Warcraft. I generally go by the name CyberVic everywhere non-wow always have and will continue to in FireFall. If you join the game, look for me by name CyberVic.
If people don't give a crap about FireFall and/or don't care about HILYMI, let me know either way please. If people do want to play FireFall but maybe under a different name or know an existing group let me know as well. I did a cursory scan of the army list and there's aren't many big armies yet. If you know people into shooters who want to join us, please refer them this way. For all those who played Tabula Rasa with us back in the day, please check out FireFall. It's everything TR was that was good and even better. Also, if you played the early beta, there is a LOT of new content and the dev team is now starting to release in stages more instanced based / keyed / unlockable content.
For those who don't frequent our website regularly or members who are super casual and haven't figured it out it yet... the guild has ended it's time in the hardcore raiding spotlight. As we began progressing through 25m Heroic Progression, less and less raiders started showing up to raid. We even had some people "come back" do farm content, see the whole raid instance, and then never logged in again. It's amazing how people lose interest at a certain point in the expansion when we're just getting to the fun hard stuff. But I digress. The 25m raid roster roller coaster struck again and this time the officers had it and threw up our collective hands. So we decided and announced about 3 weeks ago that the guild would no longer be raiding.
Much of the guild has stayed together in WoW under the Baddies banner. Avacado did a good job holding people together and finding homes in an agreeable place for most. Much of those who didn't follow Avacado simply quit the game either before or as a result of the guild... dissolving. After the decision was made that we weren't raiding anymore, I personally couldn't bring myself to even log in anymore. I'm tired of WoW and the raiding scene. The guild was the only thing keeping me playing.
So that is where it stands, but in other news... we are going to be continuing HILYMI in some sense as a casual gaming community. For those who have quit WoW and those who even still play WoW but want to play other games with us, I will be soon revamping this website for the purposes of setting up a HILYMI as a gaming community with various tools and features. There is a discussion I started here for more info.
I have a goal of getting things back up and running under this new setup by the 15th of June which is our 7th year anniversary. I will get basics done and running sometime this weekend ( mumble going again for example ).
Good job tonight guys.
Got down heroic Jin'rokh after 2 solid hours of attempts. Please study up the next few bosses.
Progress: 1/12 H
Good job tonight guys.
Funny thing, even though we're the 185th 25m guild to kill Lei Shen, we're 208th overall because of all the cocksuckers who are doing heroics before beating Lei Shen. Let's get first heroic boss down next week and we'll jump ahead of them big time.
Excellent work overall everyone.
Special thanks to all those who worked so hard on all the meta achievements necessary to unlock the guild hall. Finally I can stop complaining than EQ > WoW.
Excellent job tonight folks. Final kill attempt on Iron Qon was textbook including dropping lightning in Phase 3. One shot Twin Consorts after our initial honorary face pull.
