[Recruitment] ATHEN PALADINS - recruitment: open [Clans]

Just a quick note. Overwhelmed with activity.

AP Raids Jun 29 - Jul 5 - with Biodome

20:30GMT = 4:30PM EST
19:30GMT = 3:30PM EST
18:30GMT = 2:30PM EST

Monday 29:

  • 19:30GMT No schedule, open to initiative. Biodome key farming welcome if you can :slight_smile:

Tuesday 30:

  • 19:30GMT APFs 35 28 13

Wednesday 1:

  • 19:30GMT iPande runs

Thursday 2:

  • 19:30GMT Biodome all 3 domes

Friday 3:

  • 19:30GMT 12man runs

Saturday 4:

  • 19:30GMT Crazy Raids Day (iPande + 3 APFs)

Sunday 5:

  • 18:30GMT Sector 42 Please be there on time
    2nd raid:
  • 20:30GMT PoH (Teams forming opportunity: Form your teams!)

So, numbers are somewhat smaller probably due to de-confinement plus the effect of Summer but still nice. Let’s wish the best to all.

The 200+ Temple of the Wind was a great, really unexpected surprise and it’s a hit although some loot would deserve to be revamped a little, especially for “220sih” players. This shows there are people at FC’s who do care about faithful players and AO. :slight_smile: And, for as much I have known some of them in the past, it has always been the case, even if it was not always visible. Thank you all. :).

I’d love to see my favorite dungeon of all times, Foreman’s Office (Biomare) receive the same treatment. :slight_smile:

Or, for something looking much easier to implement, an upgraded version of Biodomes, which, basically, would only require to upgrade the boss and its loot (the turrets can easily wipe or totally desorganize a 220ish group anyhow).

The level of the boss could possibly be chosen by using the master key on a new device, so there would be two devices: the regular one and the end-game boss one.

Hint hint?! :yum:

I would really be curious to know how recruitment of returning player is going in other orgs… because it’s really a big thing for AP at the moment and for more than a year. I can only hope it’s a real trend and that “many” old players are coming back.

AO is unique; there is nothing close, and, nowhere, anything like the AO Community.

News:

We have started to implement the new Subway 201+ in our regular raids schedules. We have now plans to revamp those schedules for new instances, without diminishing the importance of “traditional” raids. This won’t be an easy task with incoming new content but we’re dedicated to working on this and making it a whole new world of activities for APs and allies! :smiley:

Needless to say how happy we are to see FC adding that new content. :slight_smile: I can’t wait to see my favorite dungeon of all times, Foreman’s Office (before the changes and the level lock though), get the high-end update. :slight_smile:

News

We are glad to see a steady flow of applications and several all players coming back. :slight_smile: And we’re doing our best to help them re-discovering AO, as well as discovering the new content (thanks again for that, FC).

We are slowly (because of the need for experimenting) adapting our raids schedule to the new instances, for example the Subway. At the moment it takes the form of several “random” raids, not scheduled, when people need. We hope though to do better in the next weeks and months. :slight_smile:

Our raids this week:

This week, we"ll push APFs raids due to the increased needs of people for some key items, which are a bottleneck in AO. (“S28” Belt item, Rings items) And we’ll likely continue to do so, probably with an additional schedule.

I don’t agree with the ‘helpfull’ in AP.
I’ve done 15-20 raids with AP + the Alliance, and have very bad feelings about how they go.
everyone rushes to the end boss, leaving the slow/old behind, so i got killed most of the time by the remaining aliens, and coming back to the instance is plain impossible.
I even got kicked from a AP team during some other end game thing, because my equipment wasn’t good enough… That was the time I quit RK1.
I’m at RK19 now (for the last year or so, just answering now because the game is patching) where the few people that are there REALY help each other. and there is no economy so no selling at ridiculous prices, you get what you need if someone has it.

Raids – August 16 – 22 with Biodomes

If you’re the kind of people who watch AO population, like me, you likely noticed that August was on low numbers. But, then you should have also noticed that, yesterday already, a lot of people were back! :smiley: And it stared a bit before.

And so, we decided to even increase our activities, starting already with raids, adding new ones to both AP raids and the ones we host and do with The Alliance* :slight_smile: And we are working on making this even richer soon. :slight_smile:

Oh, and, before I forget: Recruitment is still open !
