Gadgets, Gizmos, and Computers / New Rig Time!
« on: February 18, 2015, 03:21:02 pm »
So I'm about to pull the trigger but wanted to get some last min feedback from you guys. Primarily this is in preparation for Star Citizen but I understand that tech will progress as the development time wears on and into release. Anyways, here is what I am looking at getting:

- Intel Core i5 4690K CPU
- 8GB 1600MHz Memory
- 120GB Samsung EVO SSD
- 1TB 7200RPM HDD
- Upgraded CPU Air Cooling
- GIGABYTE Z97 Motherboard
- 600W Corsair CX Power Supply
- Microsoft Windows 8.1

Smuggler / Scrapper Scoundrel PvP Skill build
« on: February 11, 2015, 12:47:09 pm »
Just looking for some feedback regarding my potential skill build for PvP with my Scrapper.

Tier 1:

Sneaky - Increases movement speed by 15% and effective stealth level by x.

Dirty Escape - Reduces the cooldown of Dirty Kick and Flash Grenade by 15 seconds.

Then from here I'm sort of torn between Scar Tissue and Smuggled Get-Up but am leaning towards Scar Tissue

Scar Tissue - Increases damage reduction by 5%.
Smuggled Get-up - Reduces all area of effect damage taken by 30%.

Tier 2:

Dirty Trickster - Surrender will also purge movement-impairing effects when activated.

Sedatives - When Tranquilizer wears off, the target is struck by Sedatives, reducing all damage dealt by 50% for the next 10 seconds. I like the idea of this one for when I am sneak capping I can sleep people and then if they break it then I have 10 seconds of reaction time to decide if I want to engage or vanish without taking much damage. Open to suggestion on this one

Tier 3:

Hotwired Defenses - Increases the amount of damage absorbed by Defense Screen by 30%

Smuggled Defenses - Reduces the cooldown of Escape by 30 seconds, Defense Screen by 4 seconds and Smuggle by 60 seconds.

Jedi Consular / 3.0 Shadow PvP Advice Needed
« on: January 15, 2015, 04:58:11 pm »
So I just got around to reading up on the Serenity discipline (mostly because I kept hearing Mad and some others go on about it) and OMG, that looks pretty tasty with all the life leetch and added DPS compared to my Tank shadow for PVP.

So for my experienced PvP'ers can you give me a detailed breakdown on openers and general strategy for using the Serenity tree skills and their synergies? It's a bit different than what I'm used to as a Kinetic Shadow plus add to that I'm still knocking the rust off since coming back to swtor. Thanks!

I hereby declare 2015 to be the year of, as Xar says, getting our "poop in a group"!

I don't know about you guys, but I've had some serious struggles this year and I'm looking forward to starting the year off right and plugging all the leaks that have recently caused me to start to sink. If you have had a great year, then I hope you have an even better one by keeping your "poop in a group"!

This time next year, may we all be better off than we are today! Happy New Year TG!

General Discussion / Stealin' thunder...11 years!
« on: December 18, 2014, 10:14:50 am »
So just like Meg, I was congratulating another member on their 1 year anniversary and now congratulating Meg as well, that I realized that I just dinged earlier this week! I'm now part of the double year badge club at 11 years! (if only someone would make some 11+ year badges... :torynn:) My actual join date has been lost to antiquity with the decommissioning of the old boards. I use the date that I re-registered on these boards.

I've seen a lot of growth over the years and a lot of good friends come and go. The amazing thing to me is the number of us old timers that are still around and that the guild is still going strong after 12 years or so. Congrats to all the Guardians that have come before me, and all those who will come after. It's been a great home, a great family and I'm excited for the many more years to come!

General Discussion / Receipient of Guardian Honors
« on: November 12, 2014, 11:19:45 am »

Brothers and sisters of The Guardians, it is once again my distinct honor to come before you to recognize one of our ranks for their dedication and contribution to the betterment and success of our online family. Apologies as this award is long overdue, I’ve had all the info in my 70+ item PM box for some time.


Is hereby awarded The Mark Of Excellence Award
Dignitas Virtus.
The Mark of Excellence is intended to award those members who excel in what they are doing beyond a shadow of a doubt both in performance and knowledge of their craft. Beyond this they must use their skill and knowledge to help other Guardians excel as well. The nominee should be a walking talking Wiki for the craft in question. Knowing the ins and outs of a game and spending a significant amount of your time helping fellow Guardians excel at the game or having a great knowledge or coding and helping make TG’s website are examples of good reasons for this award.

The Guardian Mark of Excellence is truly an honor to receive because, to me, it isn’t just about your extensive knowledge and proficiency in a game, but using that to make the entire Division and Guild better for it. Your contributions to the SW:TOR Division have not gone unheralded or unappreciated. Let the words of your fellow Guardians speak for themselves.
I can't think of anyone more worthy than Raja to receive this award.  Since Raja has become a Guardian, he has been a model member.  He is a member that all divisions would be lucky to have.  Raja has been running at full throttle helping me and my other officers in our decision process for our weekly conquests.  Raja has built and maintains all our conquest data and analytics into a multi-tabbed google spreadsheet.  His detailed tracking has been used to pick our planets for the past few weeks with huge success.  We have not lost a planet since we started using the data.  He posts highly detailed conquest information each week for all our members to see what will be expected that week and how they can maximize their contributions in conquest.  I have heard him train numerous people at different times in mumble on how to get the most out of their crafting to benefit us during the conquest.  He has done all of this without any prompting by leadership or any promised of reward.  He deserves much more than this award, but I hope be receiving this reward he will know that we all appreciate him and his efforts to help The Guardians continue to be the best we can be.

Raja has been doing an outstanding job at running the Swtor conquest system.  He has put in untold hours putting together charts ,graphs and guilds that the division has been using to calculate strategy and plan of attacks. His work has been invaluable on this front.
would like to nominate Raja for the Mark of Excellence. The amount of work he has put in from his first day of joining The Guardians has been massive. From spreadsheets to research, he has been an important asset. I do not think we could have pulled off 4 wins in a row with out his help.

The amount of time he takes off from doing the thing he loves most, PvP, to help other members get an understanding of conquest and offer tips to maximize their points is also outstanding.
He's been up and active to the on going conquest happening in the guild the moment he stepped into The Guardians. Utilizing his resources, we manage to know things ahead of time, who goes to which planet, what's the priority target for the next week and other things. He's been always on the look out for next best thing for the guild to do in order to achieve the goals we aim for. Providing as much instruction as possible to those who aren't familiar with where to go. He always posts the guides on the forums for everyone to know what to focus on and have always been ready to lend a hand when needed. Either with commander conquest or not. Always up for helping people learn things and ready to share what he knows. These things have been witnessed by Drim and Jiraxis and Ierdosian and other people in the guild.
I want to nominate Raja for Mark of Excellence. His contribution to SWTOR conquest is above and beyond everyone else's in the guild. Without being asked to do so, he researched the conquest system, analyzed competing guilds' strategies in conquering planets, analyzed what benefits TG the most in galactic conquest, and formulated strategies for TG to conquer planets and for countering competing guilds' conquest progress. The amount of effort and the depth of the strategies he formulated for TG in the conquest system are unmatched. Because of his devotion to galactic conquest, TG is well on her way to become the first galactic conqueror on the server. Thus I nominate him for Mark of Excellence.
Since joining TG, Raja's passion for the new SWTOR Conquest system has lead him to creating tools for tracking our progress, our potential point out puts, and conquest scenarios that we are most vulnerable to our conquest rivals. 

he has also tracked this information for our rivals as best he can by their weekly performances.  the data, research and theory crafting that Raja has done has been a big help and a major factor for our current success and why we are only 1 planet behind for the server first title Galactic Conqueror.

Please join me in congratulating Raja for not only being nominated and receiving this award, but going above and beyond to make The Guardians the very best we can be!

Decommissioning of Final Fantasy XIV and Rift Squads

As the sun finally sets on these 2 squads, I want to take a moment to send some love to everyone who has been invovled in these games. Especially, I'd like to say a big thank you to Kiyah and Pie for all of their efforts in keeping the lights on. I'm sure there will still be people playing and if you feel like picking up one of these games or giving it another whirl for funsies then be sure to hit them up. Even though it won't be an official game, we can still have a forum in the "other games" section for folks to talk shop about these games.

Thanks for all the memories!
