      Guild name: Beta Delta Nu (ΒΔΝ)
      Server: East Coast NA PvP
      Faction: Horde
      Language: English
      Loot: DKP/loot council or Roll rank advantage/loot council - TBD
      Raid hours: 8:30 pm - 11:45 pm EST -- Tues/Wed/Thurs - TBD
      Signup: https://discord.gg/HjW9N9W

      In need of:
      We currently have open recruitment for Every role. We have a little bit of everything at the moment, with 15 core raiders along with other casual players tagging along.

      Introduction
      ΒΔΝ is an NA East Coast guild led by WoW veterans who are well experienced in GM roles and raid leading. Collectively we have raided and PvP'd through all of WoW's lifetime from Vanilla to the current retail expansion, BoA. Our members' ages range from mid to late 20s, but we welcome all 18+ applicants.

      We are a semi-hardcore raiding guild who also love to world and BG PvP. Progression raiding will only occur during raid hours; however, you will be expected to gear and collect consumables on your own as well.

      Loot and Raid Hours
      Our loot system and raid hours are not set in stone, but they are most likely what will be in place come Classic. Our loot distribution system will be overseen by a loot council in order to intervene with loot distribution as needed in favor of whatever is both best and fair for the guild.

      Conclusion
      With that said, we do like to have fun – this is a game after all. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and try to help others when we can. We don’t encourage a toxic culture but we do like to joke around a lot. If you’re interested signup at the discord link above and follow the instructions in the #read-first text channel.

      I've been curious about making a switch for ergonomics and just lack of space on my desk.

      • Do you recommend it for gaming? Any guidance on genres that do or don't work? I mostly play real time and turn based strategy games or point-and-click style games such as Diablo on my computer. I don't generally go in for twitchy FPSes, but I'd like the option.

      • Opinions on index vs. thumb?

      • How long was the adjustment period to get used to it?

      • Any recommendations on good ones to buy?

      • Are there any advantages I'm not thinking of besides just being better for my wrist?

      • Disadvantages besides, potentially, being less precise than a mouse?

      • Are there any tradeoffs with going wireless?

      Some of you may have heard that the bright minds behind Risk of Rain have made their next effort with the help of an added dimension. Risk of Rain 2 released on Early Access lately, to many peoples' surprise and joy. I played a decent bit of the original, but never managed to get into it. Something about 2D scrollers like that puts me off hard, but I respected the hell out of the awesome art, fantastic music, and neat synergies/shenanigans throughout the game.

      Risk of Rain 2, so far, has been an absolute blast and I'm super happy for the devs. They received way more support than they initially expected upon launch, and the buy 1 get 1 gift key strategy did wonders for them. I've been steadily playing this game with friends and after the initial Diablo 2 loot stealing shenanigans, we've all managed to memorize items, learn builds, and work out what survivalists we like. This game is a killer time-killer; I've spent what I thought was 10 minutes in one match only to glance at the timer and read that 70 minutes have passed. This game almost feels like it's a finished product, and the devs aren't even done yet. I'm super psyched for all the new stuff we'll get to see and experiment with.

      I'm also curious as to what anyone else thinks. Has anyone played enough to share their opinions? Did anyone not enjoy their time with the game? Please share!

    4. Anybody here play Hearthstone? Have tips for someone getting into it?

      I downloaded HS yesterday as I got the itch to play some card games and it seems like a good place to start. I've been following newbie guides I found on /r/hearthstone and have just unlocked all heros and played one play now (and won very surprisingly)

      Just curious if people have some advice about starting out/playing or what 'path' to take. I tend to stick to as much solo content as possible in card games before I jump into the PVP side and have a sort of policy of not spending money on games like this before I put in a significant amount of hours and don't get burnt out.

      All of this because I've been watching a ton of Magic: Arena on twitch lately as my favorite streamer has gotten addicted (richard_hammer btw)... and figured magic might be a bit overwhelming.

    6. First Impressions of FromSoftware's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice are now out

      Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice feels like a fighting game Polygon - Jeff Ramos https://www.polygon.com/2018/8/22/17760320/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-gameplay-impressions-combat Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice...

      Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice feels like a fighting game
      Polygon - Jeff Ramos
      https://www.polygon.com/2018/8/22/17760320/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-gameplay-impressions-combat

      Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is definitely not another Dark Souls. Where FromSoftware’s previous action games could feel like tense memory games, the developer’s next effort instead seems to crib from a different genre entirely: fighting games.

      The Souls games and Bloodborne can be notoriously uninviting, and that’s what fuels their sense of satisfaction. By contrast, Sekiro’s appeal lies in its careful consideration. Reading your enemies, perfecting the timing on deflecting attacks and creating clever openings: These are the keys to staying alive. Precision like the kind Sekiro requires of you isn’t rare for action games, even if it feels dissimilar from FromSoftware’s most recent series. In Sekiro’s case, however, we found ourselves playing it less like an action game, and more like the kinds of fighting games that make you study your opponents before striking.

      Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Is Definitely Not "Just Another Dark Souls"
      Gamespot - Alessandro Fillari
      https://www.gamespot.com/articles/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-is-definitely-not-just-an/1100-6461324/

      When looking at From Software's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, it's clear that it's built on the foundations of the team's previous work on the Dark Souls series. Focusing on an uncompromising and stoic design sense that rewards patient players who learn from their mistakes, the developer's next big title definitely channels some of the best of what their last ten years of games have to offer. However, Sekiro is a major shift away from the slower, and more cautious playstyle of action-RPG Dark Souls and even Bloodborne--moving further into the direction of what seems to be a traditional action game.

      Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Hands-On
      Kotaku - Chris Person
      https://kotaku.com/sekiro-shadows-die-twice-hands-on-1828506631

      We played Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and it’s about as punishing as you would expect from the developers of Dark Souls. But it may be take some unlearning for long-term Souls players.

      'Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice' Offers a Brutal, Beautiful Challenge
      Hollywood Reporter - Patrick Shanley
      https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/inside-sekiro-shadows-die-twice-gameplay-1135402

      Now, FromSoftware has traveled from the hellish world of Lordran to its own fantastical reimagining of 16th century Sengoku Japan in the upcoming Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The much-anticipated title is set for release on March 22, 2019, and a lucky few were able to get their hands on the game at this year's Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany — and an even luckier few were spared the long plane ride and got to try out the game stateside in Santa Monica.

      The demo showcased at Activision Blizzard HQ gave the player control of the eponymous Sekiro, a shinobi assassin who sports a prosthetic arm and a killer instinct. Right from the start, differences between Sekiro and past FromSoftware titles are evident. While the game features a similar HUD (head-up display) to Dark Souls titles and combat that allows the player to lock on to enemies with the push of the right analog stick, the introduction of new mechanics such as jumping and an incredibly useful grappling hook make for a much more fluid gameplay experience.

    7. Tonight is the launch night for the 7th expansion to World of Warcraft! Who else is hyped for Battle for Azeroth?

      There's been a bit of drama regarding the direction of the general story, but I reckon they know what they're doing - I'm mostly excited for the new zones anyway. And quests, storylines in new zones, etc.

      WoW has been on a slow and steady downward trend in terms of popularity, and it's not very talked about in gaming communities - but hey, it's now 14 years later and it's still going strong with millions of subscribers! Although mildly annoying that we can no longer see exactly how many there are, it's understandable - if nothing else for the beauty of an updated version of this graph!

      So who's excited for BfA?
