You Suck My D*ck


Following this bleeding, bloody mess, I snapped off one of the grander epics ever put to this site.

If you’ve got some time, you really should go back and re-live this one. If not, I’ll sum it up briefly:

Universal Server Retardation


The word “stupid” is thrown around a lot these days. Nowhere is it more fittingly applied than to the new universal server rules abomination that was dropped on the community this past weekend.

On Sunday, it was brought to my attention that I had said on Saturday that there wouldn’t be anybody who would come out in favor of the new multiple account rule. Though I don’t recall saying it exactly like that, I can look back on it now and remember for the fifty-ninth time that the stupidity of certain portions of the NF community transcends my understanding; hopefully I will never be so surprised by it again.

Indeed, I have seen no prominent person of worth come forward to cheer this decision. Fine, call me an elitist bastard. While you’re at it, know that I’m right. In order to proceed, some of these scenarios are going to have to be a bit theoretical but they are all legitimate. Here is the infallible case for not restricting players to one account.

Harbor Assault – Year II In Review


And the game we play has survived another year.

We’re in a typically weak part of the calendar, after a long and exhausting holiday event schedule and the natural rush following the release of new content.  This is one of the three times of the year where the grind really is a grind, and motivation must be drawn from a wider array.

Crap Is King


At 12:29:05 Server Time on November 29, 2014, I observed the NavyField login server as down. This was thirty-one minutes prior to a scheduled Harbor Assault between Russian Alliance (attacking) and Flota Gallega (defending). I cannot expect anybody to know anything about login issues earlier than that, but I have great confidence in knowing that many people would have begun noticing in the following minutes. Upon being unable to login, whether they had been in-game in the previous hour or whether they were just showing up for the day, fleet members would quickly become aware that new connections to the NF server would not be possible. The server itself remained up.

Once the HA start time had passed, reports came to me that Russian Alliance had numbers beyond the ability to fill one room, and that in logged accounts, Flota Gallega was severely handicapped. No information about the physical progress of the Harbor Assault was given to me. I was not on the server, and making decreasingly frequent attempts to get back on.

It was 13:51 when I, back on Enterprise, saw the game clock and the London HA tiles. This was within no more than two minutes of the word coming to me that the server login issues had been resolved. What I saw at London was twenty-four tiles taken by Russian Alliance, the harbor itself still belonging to Flota Gallega, and no battle setting nor in progress on FG’s lone tile. I beat you all to it when I said verbally, “RA can do that to FG, but RA didn’t legitimately do that to FG.”
