GuildWars 2: Heart of Thorns Expansion is live!

On friday October 23rd, Arena Net released the Heart of Thorns expansion for Guild Wars 2.  While I have not personally been able to get online in the 2 days since due to internet problems, I'm excited to get on soon and experience the new content and the renewed excitement for the game amongst gamers from the Pwn9 community.  Players like Twilight Rose, King, Eviltower, Spikey, Cryptix, Scytale, Chess, and Bloodworn - and perhaps others who never really got into the game but have it, might consider jumping back in.  We've got the makings of a pretty active clan in BAMF right now and potentially could band together to do some of the new content like raids as a guild!

GuildWars 2 - The Revenant

Since I went and dropped a cool $100 on the pre-purchase for the expansion I got into all the Beta events and early release stuff for Guild Wars 2 - Heart of Thorns.  This weekend, albeit not getting a lot of time to actually play, I was able to create and play on the new class, Revenant.  Which I was personally hoping to be like the Guild Wars 1 Ritualist, simply because I loved the OP ease of Signet of Spirits and Spirit Spam builds in PvE on GW1.

The Latest in Pwn9 News.

Just some updates and odds and ends in Pwn9 News for those who are interested.  First of all, our Minecraft Server "YASMP" has moved yet again, this time hopefully coming to a rest for a little while.  It is now on the server that was donated to us by  YASMP, Creative and eventually BattleZone will be hosted on here now on Minecraft 1.8.x replacing the previous servers on Minecraft 1.7.10 which included NyctoCraft Hardcore server..

Dirty Bomb -> The next FPS to try and be Wolf:ET

This is Dirty Bomb.. its going to be a F2P (but probably P2W) on Steam..  it's gotten mixed reviews..  it's using similar engine and game style as Brink and of course the predecessor and still unbeaten reigning king of all team objective FPS: Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory.  Will Dirty Bomb make it where all the others have failed?  I'll be giving it a chance when the time come...

What's going on in the world of Minecraft?

Just sitting here pondering what the heck is going on with Minecraft these days. After all the hullabaloo of the Bukkit Fiasco and then the Microsoft Buyout (not to mention the DMCA Takedown of craftbukkit) - it seems like Minecraft is on hiatus. All the while Pwn9 is sitting in the best shape Minecraft-wise in a long time with 2 (maybe 3, plus test servers) and half a dozen public maps, all for free with now paid ranks..  sitting completely empty (granted we're on 1.7.9 still).  All leaving me to wonder... is Minecraft still alive?  Who is still playing?  Where are you playing?  What sort of things can Pwn9 do while Minecraft is in neverland...

Let's assume Pwn9 won the lottery...

For arguments sake, lets say someone gave us a really BIG server to host minecraft on..  let's say this server was like.. 16X 3.0 Ghz CPU's, 128GB RAM with SSD storage on a 10G network.  What do you think we should do with all that horsepower?
