i would argue that higher ranked guilds running decent builds are tougher than the normal "whatever-way" builds running around HA. but that's just me.
finally, i'll be more specific about the term r5+. for our group it means the lowest ranked player on the team. since most of us are 6 and above that means 1,000 fame more than 0. not uber but certainly not chopped liver.
I get stuff like that sometimes because of my alias on here, and I think sometimes people think I'm unexperienced outside of "pre" (not refering to you btw). That just happened to be a main character I had at the time, which is soon going to be LDoA along with me level 16 pre monk Il Divine Legend Il.
Anyway, back on subject. The thing is, I don't just want the emote. I want to gain experience/knowledge outside of AB. I realize how much of a joke that can be after making my way from RA-TA-HA lol. The emote is just a bonus I suppose. But I guess you're right as far as having to deal with the elitism and such.
And to mmorpgman, I'll be sure to try to find you to see if we can get something going.
People suggested in-game of trying to run with the IWAY/Zergway, etc but I'm not really into the whole gimmick build gig. The again, as they say, "beggars can't be choosers". Meaning I might as well build up my intial rank or two however I can to get me started.
We'll see I guess
Ugly Betty - My Apologies. You took my silly jokes to heart.
Im r9/ch2, will run for any low- and or unranked players as long as the build is not a -way.
prefer monk, can do all; ign: Xero Intervention
this is one of the things I don't get in HA. sure zergway is a PUG-friendly build for unranked players to start off with. but what's wrong with the other builds. what if I wanted to run balanced, ranger spike, paraspike, sh spike, hexway, etc. many times I have announed that I'm making a balanced HA group in alliance or guild chat only to have people say "it won't work". why is there this block about unranked balanced or spike teams?
i'm guessing that it's because PUG balanced teams are harder to coordinate. zergway is popular because it doesn't take a lot of direction to be decent. most zergways who go 1 or 2 maps deep don't even use vent. a spike team needs to be coordinated. you gotta have a good caller, a tactics person and of course vent.this is one of the things I don't get in HA. sure zergway is a PUG-friendly build for unranked players to start off with. but what's wrong with the other builds. what if I wanted to run balanced, ranger spike, paraspike, sh spike, hexway, etc. many times I have announed that I'm making a balanced HA group in alliance or guild chat only to have people say "it won't work". why is there this block about unranked balanced or spike teams?
zergway is a gimmick - no doubt. but passing the ball continually to Shaq is also a gimmick. if you got a cannon, you fire it. no?
I was in a HA group once, right after I unlocked it ><, my team arena group which was PUG suggested it. So we did it and some r3 people were in it and we fought agains a guild full of Necromancers, everybody just kept shouting things like dam and rude words, they didnt even try. I myself managed to kill one necro, the others didnt even try, they were like sitting ducks, I think I was ignored by the guild though as they ran towards the ghostly hero and then proceeded to eliminate me.
But this at least proves that not all ranked players are really experienced, sometimes freshman are better.
This is just a point, I am also personally interested in HA but because I live in Australia and I have no rank it is really hard for me to find a group.
I personally believe that some of the HA ranked people are kind though, if they all were not and all just wanted to so-called 'pawn noobs' nobody new would be able to proceed through the ranks, I would never leave my guild just for the purpose of PVP. Who says a guild cant be all-purpose? If it wasn't for my current guild I might not have made it through team arenas.
