  1. I can believe I did that. I thought the start was today Nov 16, I had the dates mixed up in my (old and tired) brain. I use google calendar for all my important stuff, I should have marked the season start date there also. Fladdery helped me up to Paragon 10 (thank you my friend) and then I got so lucky. In a normal difficulty game, a paragon 850 monk power leveled 3 of us in four greater rifts (level 70). I got 260 paragon levels in under an hour. WOW. Trebain, sound the call to war...
  2. Come join me in For Honor, even if just for four days. The free weekend on the PC is from November 9th at 9 am PST to November 12th at 12 pm PST. The links to download the game will be available on Tuesday, Nov 7. https://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/free-weekend/# For Honor Free Weekend players will have access to the full game, which includes the Story Mode, PvP/PvAI Game Modes (1v1 Duel, 2v2 Brawl, 4v4 Dominion/Elimination/Skirmish), 16 Heroes and 16 Maps! Is the game perfect? No, it has some problems, primarily the peer-to-peer networking does cause some game crashes. Ubisoft is working on switching to dedicated servers. Also, a few of the characters have some balance issues. I mainly play in the 4 person PvsAI mode, so just four people in the peer-to-peer network and I rarely have connection problems. Early in the game's life, there were a lot more people playing, some estimates I have seen is that the player base is 10 to 15% of what it was after release. https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1487785-Hall-of-Heroes-Warden-Guide https://youtu.be/HhpbCuBp12k https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1499952-Hall-of-Heroes-Raider-Guide https://youtu.be/X0mpJTwboOo https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1546959-Hall-of-Heroes-Warlord-Guide https://youtu.be/NpJ5RvXXSuk https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1491253-Hall-of-Heroes-Kensei-Guide https://youtu.be/7uniz_svSSQ Attachments area Preview YouTube video For Honor Trailer: The Warden (Knight Gameplay) - Hero Series #3 [US] For Honor Trailer: The Warden (Knight Gameplay) - Hero Series #3 [US] Preview YouTube video For Honor Trailer: The Raider (Viking Gameplay) - Hero Series #2 [US] For Honor Trailer: The Raider (Viking Gameplay) - Hero Series #2 [US] Preview YouTube video For Honor Trailer: The Warlord (Viking Gameplay) – Hero Series #8 [US] For Honor Trailer: The Warlord (Viking Gameplay) – Hero Series #8 [US] Preview YouTube video For Honor Trailer: The Kensei (Samurai Gameplay) - Hero Series #1 [US] For Honor Trailer: The Kensei (Samurai Gameplay) - Hero Series #1 [US]
  3. I join you in prayer, my brother...
  4. Come Wednesday I will be rocking with the Highlander!
  5. The game For Honor is free to play this weekend. I urge you to give it a chance and see if you like it. If you do like it, it is on sale now for $30 (50% off). https://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home/
  6. Stop stealing Trebain's jokes, give them back!
  7. For my wireless, I just converted the old ASUS RT-N66R from a router to an access point. The only thing we use wireless for is our Republic Wireless phones. All the computers are hardwired with Cat5e, on Gigbit internal network. The Ubiquiti Networks EdgeRouter-Lite was $95 on Amazon. It took me a while to create the firewall rules for Stor and Eld, for the games they are playing. Was not too bad. I got the Arris SB8200 for $160 from Amazon on sale down from $195. It will do 32 down channels and 8 up (in DOCSIS 3.0) when DOCSIS 3.1 comes, just need one down and one up channel for Gig speeds. I do not need Gig download speed, I want the fastest processing of packets. I also got lucky in ordering the Asus RX 470 back in March ($160?). The stupid bit-coin Cryptocurrency mining has led to a shortage of graphics cards among many retailers in the U.S. Graphics card prices have skyrocketed since then. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/ethereum-mining-german-graphics-shortage,34959.html
  8.  After a five month period of playing For Honor, I am back for D3, Season 11. Softcore Ladder, starts Thursday 8pm Eastern. While I am just getting older, by better I mean my equipment. All of the following have been upgraded! GPU: Asus Radeon RX 470 4 GB (ROG STRIX) [upgrade from 5 year old AMD-7770] Disk: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD [upgrade from Samsung 840 EVO 250GB] Internet: Comcast Blast 75 Mbps down/10 Mbps up, with 24 channel bonding down/4 up [upgrade from 25 Mbps Down / 5 Mbps Up] Modem: Arris SB8200 (Capable of 1 Gig download speed, DOCSIS 3.1 and 3.0) [upgrade from Arris SB6141] Router: Ubiquiti Networks EdgeRouter-Lite - (1 million packets per second for 64-byte packets) [upgrade from ASUS RT-N66R ] Switch: Linksys SE2800 8-Port Gigabit (16 Gbps switching capacity) The key point in upgrading all the networking equipment was to process packets faster, not necessarily download faster (an important distinction). The online games we play are: 1) download a few packets 2) process them in the game 3) upload a few packets 4) repeat (as fast as possible) Also, there are three of us gaming in this house. I will be making the Zodiac Whirlwind Barbarian: Physical Bul-Kathos Variant. Trebain, sound the call to war! p.s. I missed you guys...
  9. Is anyone going to join me in For Honor? Season 2 is about to start, with two new heros http://blog.ubi.com/category/for-honor/
  10. Charon, you should roll a Warden. http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1487785-Hall-of-Heroes-Warden-Guide
  11. Hay Paunche, I am The Warlord! I love this game, and this character. I may be old and slow, but I am learning and getting better. I think 20 years of playing Diablo key mashing has dulled my senses, so it will take my brain a while to adjust. http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1546959-Hall-of-Heroes-Warlord-Guide Ubisoft account: Jarnnave Discord: Jarn2243
  12. Awesome thanks Trebain. Also, Trebain, this is you, The Warden: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1487785-Hall-of-Heroes-Warden-Guide
  13. Does anyone have an email address for him? I think he was a registered user to this forum at some time in the past, but I can not find the list of all registered users...
  14. Both Stor and Eld have this monitor. It is big, beautiful and awesome! ASUS MG279Q Monitor (on sale $550 , $565 typically at BestBuy) 27" LED IPS Panel Adaptive-Sync (Free-Sync) 144 Hz refresh rate, 4 ms (GTG) response time; 1,000:1 contrast ratio; 350 nits brightness; 2560 x 1440 resolution; WQHD Widescreen 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles; HDMI, Mini DisplayPort and DisplayPort inputs; Blue light filter Note: You will need a powerful graphics card, to push all those pixels. ATI Radeon RX 480 8 Gig (Stor has this) ATI Radeon R9 390 8 Gig (Eld has this) Important: One of the key features of this monitor is the adaptive synchronization between the monitor and the video card. AMD's version of this is called Free-Sync. NVidea also has a version called GSync, the main problem with GSync monitors is that they are a lot more expensive ($200+) vs the Free-Sync equivalent. The monitor and the video card have to support the same version of adaptive synchronization, for this monitor that is Free-Sync and most newer ATI video cards. I recommend you purchase a monitor from a local store like Best Buy (order it online and have delivered). Thay way if there are bad pixels or light bleed it can be returned for a new one locally.
