Trying to start a red side SG, that helps players by starting teams all the time....


Recommended Posts

....as the title says, I want to have a kind of a "carebear" supergroup on red side, that offers players to join team for teamplay whenever possible. We would also be open to help players to get a team for a mission arc he/she needs to play. Second field of interest would be the preparation and execution of pvp moments in the game.

 

What I don´t want is that my supergroup just places some lowlevels at the door and plays the game for them to rush them to lvl 50.

 

I had the idea for such a supergroup in my first week in the game, playing red side, where I really was playing alone next to others, who seemed to be not interested in teamplay right from the start in Mercy.

The rogue isles really need some attention and help. I also already prepared two lvl 50 characters for the project, a tank and a corrupter.

 

As an european player (Germany) it would be good to find a trustworthy player from another timezone, that could rule as second in command when I lay down to my villainous slumber. :))

Additionally two section leaders for teamplay and pvp would be vacant too.

 

In general I hope to start a small community, that plays the game as friends. I expect mature behavior. I also expect friendly hilariousity to have some fun in the monotony of "defeat all" and "fetch this". ^^

My global chat name is V'Zyth, the server is Excelsior.

 

Thank you for the attention.

There really needs to be an unofficial redside server so that those who want to play on redside at least all play on the same server.  That might be enough to get one server of redside with enough players to get teams going.

I think the unofficial red-side server is Everlasting, it's almost always the one with the highest red population. But the problem is we all have both blue and red, if my blue is not in Everlasting, it's unlikely I will specifically create a red in Everlasting.

Look at that, pushing Krzbrg1right off the cliff - you're red side alright.

 

I'd consider joining but I don't have anyone on that server currently (would be up to transfer someone over I suppose) and I play so infrequently (maybe twice a week?) as it is I'd be useless to have around for an SG.  But I like this idea.

I am already doing teams now whenever I am online (and that is often). My first attempt was a desaster with my elec/shield tank, that alt needs more stuff slotted. 😛

Now I get along quite good with a fire/fire blaster, which adds enough damage even if the teammembers are low levels, but most of the time we do newspaper missions.

These simple missions already gave me and other players more insight and training in and with our characters/toons.

I don´t have much knowledge about other mission arcs, but if teammembers guide me in, I go for them. In the end a team depends on the patience of the members, isn´t it?

 

Croax, I will try to contact you as soon as possible.

I've debated mass-transferring my reds to Everlasting.

So far I'm keeping them all on Excelsior though. Our redside pop isn't ... that bad... and I sort of don't want to feed the "Great Sort" feedback loop.

 

But the lure of likely having lots more poeple with fully written out backstories is ... strong.

Everlasting is the unofficial Villain server, and has been for quite some time. We almost always have the highest number of people playing redside.

 

Virtually no one actually RPs outside of Pocket D, so don't let the Unofficial RP status fool you when it comes to forming teams there. That said, RP is one of the reasons for the larger villain population. Some people(like me) role villains that would never debase themselves by going Vigilante, or worse.

 

Strike Forces are a thing on Everlasting, but they usually seem to form faster earlier in the week.

 

As a further bonus, the majority of Incarnate Trials are formed in Ouroboros for easier redside access(not Hami though. We don't have many villain Hamis 😞 ).

I would love to run some Strike Forces on Excelsior, would be happy to form and lead too! Problem is I have never done any of them, some folks get upset when the lead does not know the tasks inside out, I'll probably try forming some soon anyway and see what happens ^_^

I am all in on this, too. My global is @Ghost Owl.
It has been a long time since I did any Redside content so I don't think anybody will mind if we are clueless and bumbling.
Any theme or desired archetypes needed if  Krzbrg has already started an SG?

Accepted your global request @Vulpoid^_^ I did speak to @Krzbrg1online the other day and we teamed for a bit, he did mention he had started building a base so i think it may be in progress,  personally I dont mind any ATs or theme 🙂 I will probably be online this evening (eu time) so we could try forming mish/SF team if you are around ^_^

Uh . . . yeah, very not true. Lots of RP going on outside of Pocket D. There's usually at least one RP mission team running at any given time, and it's fairly easy to get one going on Redside.

I'm trying to assuage people that are hesitant about rolling on RP servers. There's tons of people that assume RP servers are:

1) Exclusively RPers

2)  Full of 'Carebear'  players that suck at grouping/raiding/etc due to being RP focused.

 

I'm friends with RPers! How could I be a prolific Everlasting native and not be? Of course I'm aware of the people with purple names standing around under Atlas, etc. But the vast, vast majority of pugs are people playing and acting "normally". They just happen to have a higher tendency towards having a bio.

 

Regardless, RP is the exception- Even on Everlasting. People shouldn't be afraid of rolling there.

@Vulpoid

 

To be honest, it does not matter. Teams can be started with lvl 1 and so far my experience is to bring in the following "toon"as a teamleader:

- you tank the attention of the mobs and do normal damage

- you do lots of damage

or (only recommended on higher levels and enhanced)

- you do immobilizes and holds

So, put any kind of character into my sg, we are not metabuilding elitist players. I have a dual pistol/poison lvl 50 corr, that already got despised as useles by someone else. 🙂

hehe

 

 

Secondary, my base:

 

Part of my joy in game is building inside the base and trying to do some "tricks" with the editor, aka a second level inside a room with stairs and finding more purposes and alternatives for rooms as the usual meeting room or reactor chamber. I aim for building a fortress like sci fi bunker. When I am done, it definetly can be the stage for roleplaying, if that is one of your wishes(I myself will not ignore you). I don´t use the maximal size baseplot, so there is even space for "private rooms". At the moment the only thing I have not yet installed is the teleporters. Since everything is free and all buildable I kind of went crazy while building my defence perimeter. 😕 ^^

 

We have pet sharks too...

 

PS: I tend to be online after 20:00 european time and then almost ever involved in a team.

I wouldn't mind creating a character and joining in on the fun.  Excelsior is my main server and I play villain side primarily.  I have a SG with my chars (serious alt-a-holic) but don't mind creating a char for another SG.  Probably a MM - I really like MM's. 

 

Will be on  most of the day Saturday (tomorrow) after ~noon PST.  Handle is @Thrill Seeker.

*push again* 🙂

 

We are now 5 players. Each has his specialities. While one is doing high level mission teams in Grandville, the other is doing fast midlevel newspaper teams.  It would be nice, if some european players would take part and help, as most sg members are from other timezones.

 

I am also designing our supergroup base, which has of course every feature enabled and teleporters up, but also bit by bit shows up with special rooms for roleplaying. Visit our crypt for example, a place to die for!

In short terms, we could also handle roleplayers as a sg. 🙂
