      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.

    2. 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.

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

      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"

      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.

      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

      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.

    4. 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?

      The new expansion for World of Warcraft is supposed to drop in about a month. Thought I'd see if any of you Tilderoos play WoW and what you think of it. I have been playing on and off since I was a kid and I've been having tons of fun with the introduction of the Mythic+ system in Legion. I'd love to hear about people's WoW stories and experiences with the game!

      We're working on a new, unannounced Diablo project. Are you a skilled Dungeon Artist? Come work with us, and together we will build something exceptional.

      • Work directly with level design to build atmospheric dungeons with a focus on composition, detail and mood, while ensuring that the gameplay space is readable.
      • Work with Lead Environment Artist and the Art Director to ensure all environments are meeting the high-quality bar Blizzard is known for.
      • Experience working with a lead artist or art director in developing a unique and cohesive modeling and texturing style for environment assets

      Definitely looks like a whole new game in the pipeline. Any other dungeon crawler fans on ~tildes so far? I think I've got 300+ hours in Diablo 3 alone, let alone 1 and 2.

      What do you want in a new Diablo, what do you definitely not want?
