Guild Wars CB clan (in Off-topic)


Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 2 2006 1:28 PM EDT

I was just wondering how many of us cbers play Guild Wars. Shade and i have very very breifly suggested creating a Carnageblender Guild. This is up to you guys. We could raise some money and create one judging on how many members we can get.

This of course wouldnt be limited to only cbers but there friends as well. So what do you guys think?

Please no flaming in this thread. Thanks

[me]Davis April 2 2006 1:29 PM EDT

Ill join....

Fate April 2 2006 1:52 PM EDT

id join

chiuna April 2 2006 2:22 PM EDT

I play GW, but I like my current guild. Maybe I'd join with my second account.

{CB1}Lukeyman April 2 2006 2:31 PM EDT

I was thinking of Getting Guild Wars, if I did, i'd join

AdminShade April 2 2006 3:02 PM EDT

Nice to see such positive words :)

th00p April 2 2006 3:09 PM EDT

Just a question... What exactly is Guild Wars? Is it free or would I have to pay? Thanks.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 2 2006 3:49 PM EDT

guild wars is an online role playing game. It is completly free after you purchase the game. Pretty fun and lots to do.

(CB1)ranament April 2 2006 4:01 PM EDT

I will join, will be fun doing GvG battles with people I have known for a while :)

AdminShade April 2 2006 4:13 PM EDT

Well, ranament, I myself am not really a GvG player, I'm more of a PvE player on Guild Wars.

So perhaps the idea of GvG would be a bit hard to actually accomplish when we don't have too many people playing yet :)

(CB1)ranament April 2 2006 4:36 PM EDT

Yea, I'm just saying that its funner to play with people you know instead of people you just joined up with.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 2 2006 6:48 PM EDT

I know theres more of you out there! Come on! What do you guys think?

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] April 2 2006 6:55 PM EDT

i play, and will at least gvg with you guys as a guest, havent been on in a couple weeks so have to see if my guild is still there

[me]Davis April 2 2006 6:59 PM EDT

it should be lots of fun.... ill keep it going in factions if none of you guys get... i got it pre-ordered but EB didnt give me a package

(CB1)ranament April 2 2006 10:30 PM EDT

So how many people are we waiting for to start it?

AdminShade April 3 2006 12:58 AM EDT

well atm we would have 5 members, not sure if we are waiting for any players or just to work out a name or some other things :)

Zephyr April 3 2006 5:17 AM EDT

I would join in but there is a problem with my Direct X at the moment so I cant play any games requiring a graphics card.

Also the fact that I'm too lazy to get it fixed and I'm no computer-wiz like everyone else here =P

Whose gonna be leader of the Guild??? Then I can just CM them later when I get it working again and get the guild info and stuff then. Also any other Australians cause I dont wanna be on by myself from the guild half the time lol

Will [Retired] April 3 2006 5:32 AM EDT

Don't forget a few like Aco and Odesseus left to play GW, and Im sure there are others. I think if u created the guild you might get some other pps coming out of the woodwork to join...

AdminShade April 3 2006 11:13 AM EDT

Ok then those are good sounds.


This would be a list of CB GuildWars players who would join / opt for joining the CB guild:

Join for sure:
Sir Leon (+ a friend of him)
Shade
{tscm}davis
Evangelion
ranament
Zephyr

possibly join:
PitSpawn
Lukey
chiuna

not sure but I emailed these 2 players also:
Aco
Odysseus


Regarding the guild leader, well it's Sir Leon and my idea so perhaps one of us should become leader, we will talk about it when we next see each other on MSN/CB.

@ Zephyr also: I myself am European so when you wake up on weekends I should already be playing ;)

AdminShade April 3 2006 11:44 AM EDT

My main character now is Mandos Feanturi and my secondary character is Shadie Stalker.

perhaps we should already make a list of character names for the friends list :)

Gilgamesh2090 [NCB Shop] April 3 2006 12:29 PM EDT

ah good old Guild Wars...I could join on one of my other accounts, but I would be limited in play to mostly summer time since no P2P connection allowed here.
S/N Marcus Aureilius W/R

Skunk April 3 2006 1:27 PM EDT

wow, long time ago I was here!

I play Guild Wars too, but I really like my current guild. So.....maybe we can form an alliance in Guild Wars factions ;)

(really long time ago) :P

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 3 2006 4:01 PM EDT

It is understandable that you like your own guild. Those that play can have guest privileges to our guild. We can work something out.I also dont mind people being inactive.

So it appears to me that we have enough players to form a Guild; maybe not a very large one but enough

So Any suggestions as to what we should name it? Even if it is silly post it. The least it could do is make us laugh and spark our imaginations. If you're going to be embarrassed about the name you have thought of feel free to cm me or Shade telling us. This way you can remain anonymous.


So possible names?

{CB1}Lukeyman April 3 2006 4:47 PM EDT

Carnadigans?
Hey, that kinda looks like Canadians :D :p

umm.. don't know, I am hoping to buy the game soon, we shall see what the store offers as a price, if it's not too bad, I shall buy :D

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 3 2006 5:02 PM EDT

Think the going rate atm is 40 bucks. However if you give it a few weeks it will prolly drop a little bit more. IMO dont get the new guild wars game called Factions. Not to get off topic


Thats not a bad name. I was thinking but wasn't very serious about Carnage Blenderers? lol yeah i know doesn't make much sense heh.

Any others?

{CB1}Lukeyman April 3 2006 5:31 PM EDT

Factions??

What do I get..?

(CB1)ranament April 3 2006 6:05 PM EDT

Just get normal Guild Wars. Factions is an expansion that is coming out soon.

Anyways how about "Soldiers of Spid" seeing how Spid was the first char in cb2 to get 2 mil pr and was leading until cb2 started :)

(CB1)ranament April 3 2006 6:06 PM EDT

Spid was the first to 2 mil pr in cb1 sorry and incase it is needed my main char is Thor Thunder Hammer

AdminShade April 4 2006 12:50 AM EDT

imo the Guild name has to do something with Carnage or Blender.

it has to be easily to recognize.


Carnage Blenders
The Order of the Blender
Blenders of Carnage



last 2 are my favorites.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 4 2006 3:44 AM EDT

I like the last one. But heh, its 2:45 AM and i need some sleep :)

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 4 2006 4:04 PM EDT

Perhaps i can clarify that naming it isnt up to just the people that play guild wars but anyone here. After all we will be representing the game and community of CB.

Possible names so far:

Carnadigans
Carnage Blenders
The Order of the Blender
Blenders of Carnage
Soldiers of Spid

Ok, isnt to much to chose from so lets try and get that list bigger!

also, i would like to start wrapping this up in order to make the guild this weekend. :)

My main character is Thrust of Might btw

Fate April 5 2006 3:15 AM EDT

i like Carnage Blenders my main is The Dark Monk mo/n

Zephyr April 5 2006 5:03 AM EDT

Lol...Shade its nice to know theres a time when at least someone else would be on but I'm usually not one to wake up early on weekends =P

I'll try and get my comp fixed soon so i might be able to get back into it but I got a lot of stuff for Uni so i aint got the time to take it to my uncle or wait for it to get fixed since I need to use it ><

BTW put me down as an possibility for now and I'll CM either you or Leon when my GW is up an running again. Also how many of the ppl joining are getting Factions??? Cause I dont think ppl of the expansion can still play with those with just the normal so it kind of gives a foresight(is this the right place to use such a word?my vocab is very bad and sometimes even start making up words when i write my essays =P) of what might happen when the expansion does come out.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 5 2006 7:24 AM EDT

Remember how much it was to purchase a guild hall when Guild wars first came out!? Its going to be just like that on Factions. I dont know about you guys but i wont be having 100k to throw down when it comes out. Not to mention im not getting it to begin with.

When factions comes out expect a huge inflation of that game and an even bigger deflation of Guild wars.

Talks about a Guild in Factions should wait for a few months to let prices steady.


Still wanting names or we could have a vote of the current ones. Where are all the imaginations at? :P
Names so far:
Carnadigans
Carnage Blenders
The Order of the Blender
Blenders of Carnage
Soldiers of Spid

So Vote or keep adding names?

AdminShade April 5 2006 11:33 AM EDT

Trigger Happy ? :p

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] April 5 2006 11:50 AM EDT

We Blend, You Die.

I do not own Guild Wars, neither do I wish to but thought I would add a name.

chiuna April 5 2006 2:55 PM EDT

People with factions will be able to play with people who only have prophecies. Guilds can be composed of people who just have prophecies and people with both... so there will be no need for a second guild for Factions or anything. I think on the issue of Factions and a Cb guild, the more important question is who do we plan to ally with, the Kurzicks or the Luxons?

In terms of names, Blenders of Carnage gets my vote.

AdminShade April 5 2006 3:06 PM EDT

Blenders of Carnage has 3 votes so far and thus is by far the most popular.

I think that it would be a nice name also but lets wait for the week end before finally picking.

(CB1)ranament April 5 2006 6:18 PM EDT

Although Soldiers of Spid is my 2 cents, I'm going to have to vote for The Order of the Blender. :)

Fate April 5 2006 6:36 PM EDT

why dont we make it a public poll thing for the name?

(CB1)ranament April 5 2006 8:04 PM EDT

We will have to ask an admin about that, could be a good way to get the voting to be on a larger scale with lots more people :)

JkrSmkrMidnight[ToG]er April 5 2006 10:23 PM EDT

I played GW months ago and I think I ended up making a clan called Order of Carnage [OoC] or something like that. Of course, I was the only one in it, but still - good luck to you guys in your endeavour. Once I beat Baldur's Gate 2 again and reinstall Guild Wars I might look to join your guild.

spydah April 5 2006 10:31 PM EDT

Gee, I think I'd vote for Soldiers of Spid, and yes, I have GW :p

I also like
"Insert Witty Name Here"
"What Would Kevorkian Do?"
"EverCraft what?"
"carnageblender.com" (ha!)

Do Guilds get quote type things? ;)

"Meet new people. Kill them."

Anyway, someone CM me when you get this going. Current main is "Shapely Fjord" :p

/\88/\

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 6 2006 3:43 PM EDT

Okay, so thats all thats going to vote. Come on people voice your opinion!

After this we still have to vote as to what the Guild Hall is going to be.

Votes so far:
Carnadigans
Carnage Blenders
The Order of the Blender
Blenders of Carnag~~3
Soldiers of Spid ~~~~2

I dont think the admin poll would be to relavant as it is very off topic.. Just advertise every once in a while to get a few peoples attention to this thread.

AdminShade April 6 2006 3:49 PM EDT

Soldiers of Spid would become [SoS] right ?


sounds nice to me also so i'm torn between 2 choices now :)

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 6 2006 3:55 PM EDT

lol, well atm i think the vote comes down to you :P

AdminShade April 7 2006 11:32 AM EDT

Ok the GW clan Soldiers of Spid has been created!

AdminShade April 7 2006 12:37 PM EDT

Soldiers of Spid [SoS]

now to choose how the cape will be looking, just let me know which one you like best or make a top 5 or so:
the capes are numbered like this:
1 2 3 4 5
6 7 8 9 10
etc.
the logo's are numbered in the same way.


AdminShade April 7 2006 12:41 PM EDT

also choose between the basic colors:

Godpanda April 7 2006 12:57 PM EDT

hmmm I like the cape with the black and grey flames around the edges.. and the one with the thick black line running through it...the symbol is the rapier and rose crossed.... and the color scheme would be the middle one

Shade told me to respond so do not bite my head off. But those are my choices. As for names I like Carnage Smoothie. Hehehe smoothie....

(CB1)ranament April 7 2006 2:41 PM EDT

I like cape 30 with either the burning hand, the 1st thing on the second row or the griffen thats on the last row. For colors the detail(flames) should be black, the background should be blue and the emblem should be red. The red should prolly be the shade in the middle so its not pink but still visible and the blue should be what ever shade of blue looks good with the cape

AdminShade April 7 2006 2:56 PM EDT

If we all get specific things I think it's up for debate for a long time.

so new idea:

pick your 5 most favorite capes
pick your 5 most favorite logos

colors and all will come later. :)

(CB1)ranament April 7 2006 3:04 PM EDT

ok capes are 30, 11, 3, 21, 27 and logos are the burning hand, the 1st thing on the 2nd row, the griffen on the last row, the very last thing and the thing to the right of the anchor. The logos aren't in any order but the capes are from best to worst :)

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 7 2006 3:51 PM EDT

Theres so many to choose from. I dont really care to much about what the cape looks like. Although for the emblem i like the claw thing the most.

Also gave shade plenty of money in order to fund our Soon To Be Great CB Guild! So no donations will be needed.

Guild Hall ill be very picky on though :P

AdminShade April 7 2006 3:54 PM EDT

I only like the Warriors or Archers/Rangers guild halls.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 7 2006 4:38 PM EDT

I like the warrior as well. :)

(CB1)ranament April 7 2006 5:46 PM EDT

I have no idea what the different names are and the matching halls but I use warriors so the warriors one sounds good too me

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 7 2006 7:38 PM EDT

Good enough for me. Shade spend the cash i gave you on the Warrior Isle. Then give me back anything left over :P

[T]Vestax April 7 2006 7:49 PM EDT

Fixed the large images so it would adjust to the width of the frame. (For FireFox users mainly, IE sucks.) Right-click and view image to see it in full size.

By the way, if your going to be the Solders of Spid, then may I suggest you go for the Axe as your emblem. I know I shouldn't have a say, but I guarantee I would join your clan if ever I should play.

[T]Vestax April 7 2006 7:53 PM EDT

Basic colors should be Red on Grey, duh. Just kidding though. Good luck to you guys.

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 7 2006 8:35 PM EDT

Thanks, no i actually dont mind people putting positive feed back. I said no one else but people that play guild wars to post because i didnt want any flaming and such behavior.

Maybe you can edit my first post. I would like anyone to put in there input. Especially since Shade put those screenshots in. Now anyone will be able to voice there opinion and thats how i want it.


:)

AdminShade April 7 2006 8:50 PM EDT

Fixed first post.

And Vestax, those are some neat hints i think :)

spydah April 7 2006 11:27 PM EDT

If I had the time, I put up a photoshopped KitchenAid blender on the cape... or perhaps the old skull.vortex pic...

I'd do the spider as the emblem myself... spid was supposed to be spin = spider after all :p

Grey background with a Red spider sounds good.

Found a cape maker program, kinda weak, but here:



/\88/\

Maelstrom April 7 2006 11:53 PM EDT

Wow. I just read a review of that game, and it sounds quite good! Naturally, my computer would need at least a new video card to be able to play it...

AdminShade April 8 2006 7:40 AM EDT

Alright spydah, you have some good tips!


If we go with spydah's idea then it would look something like this:

With the only things to worry about being the pattern on the cape and the color of it.

AdminShade April 8 2006 7:50 AM EDT

Let me know your main character's name so I can add you as a member to the Guild !!!

Doom Lit Sky April 8 2006 8:52 AM EDT

I'm thinking of buying GW just to play with you guys :S

I'll let you know (looked up GW and it looks like what I want to be spending my spare time on)

spydah April 8 2006 8:57 AM EDT

Shapely Fjord

;)

/\88/\

Doom Lit Sky April 8 2006 9:06 AM EDT

I think I'll wait until GW Factions comes out, I should have my laptop by then. Will someone tell me if GW will run on the following computer? If so, I might just get GW to pass the time.


This systems specs:

Dell Dimension 3000
Intel Pentium 4 2.80GHz
254 mb RAM
Page File: 457MB used
100 free gig HD space (Obviously that's enough)

Intel 82865G Graphics Controller
96MB

I think that is all that matters, I just don't know if the graphics card will support this game well enough to play regularly.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] April 8 2006 11:27 AM EDT

your RAM and graphics card are way off what you would need.

For GW I would recommend minimum of 512 RAM and probably at least 256 graphics.

Maelstrom April 8 2006 11:30 AM EDT

DLS, do you actually have 254 mb RAM? That's an unusual number...

(CB1)ranament April 8 2006 11:52 AM EDT

Shade, I like that third cape with the spider, it looks good.

DSL, I got this game with only 256 mb on my RAM and it was very slow and laggy and basicly unplayable. But luckly my dad just got a 512mb ram card for his birthday(he plays online games too) and he stuck his old 256 mb card into my computer so I had 512mb and it works great. :)

(CB1)ranament April 8 2006 11:57 AM EDT

Oh and my main is Thor Thunder Hammer :)

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 8 2006 11:58 AM EDT

yeah Shade, i like that cape. Preferably the first one minus the yellow.


DLS, you your ram is a little low. But, i know someone that used to play Guild wars on his intel card. The Graphics sucked and the game lagged quite a bit more than usually. Sorry to say but i wouldnt recommend buying it. Sure your ram isnt 256MB?


Also, for Guild invites please CM me or Shade. =D

AdminShade April 8 2006 12:03 PM EDT

I'd advise a graphics card with at least 128 mb ram, I have one also and it works without lag.

Doom Lit Sky April 8 2006 12:23 PM EDT

That's what I figured, I'm not too worried about it though, this computer wasn't made for gaming. I'll have my desktop here soon enough, or my laptop, whichever comes first.

Yes I'm sure its 254, I checked twice :).

I can't wait to finally play computer games again. It's been awhile since I've sat at my computer >) nothing is too sexy for teh 7800+. :)

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 8 2006 12:35 PM EDT

Here is my personal favorite if we do use the spider and all. I didnt like the Grey to much so i did a little testing and this was the best....

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 8 2006 1:56 PM EDT

Ok, so i didnt really like the blue thing. Changed it and came up with this. IMO a lot better. Let me know what you all think!

(CB1)ranament April 8 2006 4:05 PM EDT

The last one you posted looks too purplish, I like the one before it though :)

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 8 2006 5:10 PM EDT

Yeah but those colors blend very well imo.

AdminShade April 10 2006 5:25 PM EDT

Ok we got a nice, spid looking, cape!




Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 10 2006 5:35 PM EDT

Man i look good in that.

Guild hall is up next.

Any Input on the capes?

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] April 10 2006 5:42 PM EDT

<{cb1}PitSpawn> i love the cape leon

(CB1)ranament April 10 2006 6:33 PM EDT

The cape looks great and I'm all for the warrior hall as posted before :)

[T]Vestax April 10 2006 6:37 PM EDT

Spiffy spid cape you guys got there.

spydah April 10 2006 9:20 PM EDT

sweet...

someone come on and invite my poor arse :0)

/\88/\

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 10 2006 10:35 PM EDT

Post your char name and make sure you're out of your current guild if you have one.

Ill send an invite tomorrow morning (7 Am server time) to whomever posts from now to then. Will continue to do so until everyone is in.

So far the guild only has Four of us. I would like to see more or i feel as though we might need to recruit outsiders. I wouldnt mind very much but would prefer a CB Clan to Be All CB Players.

Also, when you post the char name why not tell us what your classes are.

For me:
Main character: Thrust Of Might W/Mo lvl 20

Secondary Character: Soul Diminisher N/R lvl 20

AdminShade April 11 2006 12:57 AM EDT

Invited Shapely Fjord which is said to be Spydah's character. :)

p.s. my father plays the character Redhot Witch, i play any other character but usually play with Mandos atm.

Fate April 11 2006 1:46 AM EDT

my characters are The Dark Monk and Forever Dieing

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 11 2006 7:09 AM EDT

Invitation sent to The Dark Monk.


Anyone else?

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 12 2006 8:24 PM EDT

Last call.

We desperatly need more players. If we dont get more then i am afraid to say but we will have to recruit others. However we could Recruit there and bring em here...


Anyway, Last call for any Other Guild Wars players that are interested in joining the CB Guild. We have a Hall, a great leader and officer. We have a brilliant Cape! What more is there to get aside from Great Players?

AdminShade April 13 2006 12:44 AM EDT

I will ask Aco and Odysseus if they would still want to join, even when they don't have a capable PC yet to really play it again. :)

(CB1)ranament April 14 2006 12:35 AM EDT

Im making a Monk character and I'm wondering what the second class should be. A ranger might be good so I can set traps for my enemies if they decide to get close but a mesmer could also be good so you can lower damage done to you and all that good stuff. Any ideas?

Gilgamesh2090 [NCB Shop] April 14 2006 1:41 AM EDT

Mesmer

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] April 14 2006 2:49 AM EDT

hey can I be in your crazy guild thing?

AdminShade April 14 2006 5:40 AM EDT

Mesmer imo is a great addition to monk skills, in this way you can heal teammates and disrupt enemies spells or skills.

Verifex, if you let me know your character in Guild Wars then i'll send an invite. :)

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 14 2006 6:45 AM EDT

Thats weird Ranament, i thought you asked me that to. lol

At least everyone gave you the same answer.

AdminShade April 16 2006 11:43 AM EDT

I'll be trying a Mesmer // Monk build to try and see what that would bring me :)

(CB1)ranament April 16 2006 11:42 PM EDT

Im building a monk/mesmer along with my warrior/ele :)

[me]Davis April 29 2006 7:51 PM EDT

im in. invite Davis Deathblade

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 29 2006 7:53 PM EDT

doing my job and making it 100 posts :) have fun with your game guys graphics look nice

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 29 2006 8:12 PM EDT

invite sent, but denied.


You need to leave your current guild. As for a factions guild. It hasnt been established.

Special J April 29 2006 8:23 PM EDT

I have a Warrior/Monk, a Monk/Warrior, a Ranger/Monk and a Necro/Ele


I also got bored of the game :(

Sir Leon [Soup Ream] April 29 2006 8:59 PM EDT

I just signed on, havent for almost a week now.

A lot has changed J. You should check it out.

Also, welcome to our small CB guild davis.

AdminShade May 2 2006 11:38 AM EDT

you should get back on it wussie, its fun!

also i invited someone i met, he's dutch but other than that, i don't know anything about him.
