    I like the way you advertise your server's PvMP, I found the video quite interesting and full of commitments.

    Good luck to the collegue PvPers remained on Elendilmir!

    I have faith in Elendilmir's future prospects

    Keep it up guys

    Nice video. I miss E, lots of action on brandy but doesn't get as close as the quality fights E has/had.

    Awesome effort from you guys trying to keep E alive and try to restore the server back to how it was before. I'll be logging in on those raiding days!

    Miss you all,

    Totally agree! That vid is awesome

    Unfortunately those raid times translate to 10am Tuesday and Thursday for Australian east coast Is there anyone running raids Aus prime time?

    It's a very well done video, a bit misrepresentative, but very well done. Every time I speak to the primary creep promoting PVP, I tell him that his efforts to revive pvp on E are commendable and that I hope they succeed. I do encourage him to represent things accurately however, which seems to be an ongoing challenge.

    Yes, There is a moderate amount of action for a few hours a few nights a week (pretty much limited to a craid and fraid fighting eachother (usually maxing out around 12 people each, sometimes a bit bigger). A small amount of group action during the day....sometimes. However there is very little solo action, meaning there generally aren't multiple solo players roaming around looking for fights, and when found they certainly don't remain 1v1 very often. I have hours of footage of me roaming around alone and finding nothing, flipping OPs - no response, flipping keeps - response. Coupled with that, some good vids of me roaming around solo and the inevitable call-out/map-in. The primary solo action I've found from freepside are questing, low-rank creeps. There are however some medium ranks roaming around questing sometimes too.

    I'm not saying there isn't pvp on E and that it can't get better. There certainly is some pvp, and it certainly can get better, lots of room to get better.

    It's very strange the server ended up in this state....sounds like a familiar prediction I heard years ago from several people...

    Elendilmir PvMP isn't too bad right now. Both sides have their strengths and weaknesses which make fights overall fairly even:

    In my experience, what each side has...

    Creeps have more veteran players, tend to use NPCs more often and have a lot of warleaders and defilers which makes it hard to kill anybody without good focus fire. However, most of the fights I've been in they've had fewer numbers.

    Freeps have fewer veteran players, but decent leadership and greater numbers. Focus fire tends to be on and off, but when it works can quickly get a healer down and force the rest of the craid to go on the defensive while the defiler gets back up.

    As far as solo goes, it's usually limited to some friendly skirmishes before the raids form up, which is probably just as well since creeps tend to do better in solo situations. Just my two cents.

    Why doesn't the OP show actual clips of Elendilmr Raid v Raid? OH, maybe it's because "Raid v Raid" on E is actually 3 low rank creeps vs 10 newb freeps. I was on the other day and they (the freeps) just didn't understand what 1 shotters do.

    though I have literally no idea what you're talking about here, that server has been dying a slow death since isenguard came out and the reason people refused to acknowledge it is because of all the transfers from meneldor, windfola and silverlode that usually just played during american prime time anyways. Once the australian population dwindled it lost the only allure it had (pvp around the clock) and became like every other run of the mill server that had RvR during american prime and not alot else outside that window.

    It's not surprising that 95% of the core playerbase is now on BW, though rather ironic that I know at least 5 players that swore they would never transfer off of E.
    There may come a time for valor without renown, for those without swords may surely still die upon them.

    I didn't really notice it because the pvp was actually pretty good till the sudden mass transfer to brandy.

    Yeah, obviously I miss aussie time and a lot of people that left, but I think the point is a new generation trying to get something special going of their own. I look forward to seeing it happen. Now that I've resolved ISP/teamspeak issues I hope to log in more, assuming my little OP defiler doesn't cause any heal-stack imbalance. I might have to be a conscientious objector or neutral observer or something at first!

    Come on Az, warg is wayyy too many buttons and thinking. I can barely handle mashing the 2 current defiler buttons that I've labeled: "OP heal" and "OP not-heal".

    Certainly you've heard me talk about spiders for enough years now that you should at least know something about playing one if you wanted.

    if you have to think as a warg your doing it wrong. only war-leaders and blackarrows need to think.
