Gaiscioch Community News August, 2021
- Gaiscioch Extra Life Charity Livestream
Just a few more months until the 2021 Gaiscioch Extra Life Charity Livestream! We're raising money for the Children's Miracle Network by hosting a massive 3-day Livestream Event packed with prizes, entertainment, and events for all to enjoy.
- New Leadership System Online
Over the past month, I've managed to squish all the bugs and get the new leadership & fellowship system online. Here is an overview of the major changes
- Adventure System Rebuild In Progress
My goal is to have everything done by November's Gaiscioch Community Conference. The big areas still needing work are the Adventure Pages. These will be replaced with a more Hub design that allows Adventure Managers to add details about the game as needed.
- Please Welcome our Newest Elders
This month we welcome 3 new elders as we ramp up for the upcoming release of Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons and New World. Over the next couple of months, we will be bringing a few more elders on for future organizational needs.
- Foghladha's Events on Hold
I really have been trying to find that one type of event people want to show up for. I tried Friday night events and had some success the first couple of weeks, but then it tapered off quickly to be only a couple of people.
- End of Dragons Releases February 2022
Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons is the third expansion for the award-winning and critically acclaimed MMORPG Guild Wars 2. The dragon cycle that has sustained and blighted Tyria for ages is collapsing. Mortal hearts and choices will define this moment in history—and echo in the future forever.
- Season 8 is off to a solid start
Believe it or not, our house is currently sitting in 5th place. We've managed to secure a good chunk of land and have protected it from invaders every single war. This has not been your typical night in the field of watch nothing happen for an hour. Almost every single territory war this season, we have been entrenched in all-out war fighting on multiple fronts.
- House Meeting Saturday July 31st at 2PM PT
We haven't gotten together as a community in a while and I felt it's a good time to pull everyone together and discuss our mission as a community with everyone. I know we've seen some departures of late but I want to make sure we stick to our original goal and mission as we move forward. I feel we need to get together to discuss the big overlaying objective and the finer points of how we as a community function.
- Getting Ready For the Launch
This past beta has put a lot of our minds at ease. This game is fun, it is massive, and it scales wonderfully to large crowds. We experimented with this by running a massive zone clear with a group of about 25. The regular areas we would solo hunt turned into horde mode like zombie invasions. Literally hundreds of creatures coming from all directions trying to kill us.
- Swords of Legends Online
This month we will continue our adventures in Swords of Legends Online as we progress a little farther in the main storyline and begin taking on some mid-level dungeons. Join us on Thursdays at 3PM PT / 6PM ET this month for some fun group questing and dungeon diving action. We will be streaming it on https://twitch.tv/gaiscioch for those of you who are curious about the game.
- Tribes of Midgard Out Now
Curious about this one? So are we. The Gaiscioch Streamteam is booting this one up on PlayStation to give it a look.
- Elyon CBT2 and Launch
On August 18th, Elyon will enter its final closed beta test before its September 29th launch. For those of you looking to give it a try, I will have a guild open asap upon launch.
- Neverwinter (PS4)
This month we will continue our exploration of Neverwinter on Wednesdays at 3 PM PT. With the Jewel of the North update landing on the PC version, we can expect to see it land on consoles in the next few months.
