Colony wars rules and fun facts!

May 26, 2008

Colony wars is a conflict carried on by force of arms, as between factions to occupy a piece of land and reap its rewards(colony buff) and their faction name will be written on the world map. The duration of CW is 2hrs and it takes place every sunday night at 8pm(GMT +8 ) sharp in channel 1 only.

Colony Stones

During this period, colonies will be open to attack on all the maps that have a colony in it. Any faction can attack any unowned colony, while only hostile factions can attack the rival’s colony.

Even after seeing its properties, the colonies 1337 Dr and def, I must stress that the destroying of the colony does not depend on the damage done to the colony but the number of hits dealt to it. Hence, every single one regardless of level are of equal productivity when weakening the stone.So it doesnt matter what level you are when it’s time to destory the colony. Characters that are known to do the most Damage Per Second(DPS) are normally builders such as Diego and Angie, dagger users such as lisa or Catherine the Summoner. Once the colony has been destroyed, the colony will belong to the faction of the last person who hit and destroyed the colony. The colony will return to full hp at the begining of every CW and will reset on the 1st of every month.

Rewards of an occupied Colony

Colony Buff

The faction that rules that map and enjoy certain HP and attack boost bonuses.

1st colony:Maximum Hp +10%, 2nd to 5th colony:Maximum Hp +9%.

The 6th colony and above will carry no special attributes.

Clubhoothoot FTW!~

April 7, 2008

After a long break from the Colony Wars, CHH went back with a blast and clinched 2 Colonies! Grats to all Hooties for participating in todays war! You guys were fantastic~

Our members started garthering at 7.30pm(GTM+8) at the tetra hill’s faction colony manager. We were then spilt into our respective squads. As 8pm approached, we started attaking Tetra Hill’s Colony. The first time the Colony broke, it belonged to no one! But all of us thought it belonged to Wargodz/Armada because they were around hitting the Colony with us. I imagined everyone must have had the D: face. We immdiately headed back to Tetra hill’s Colony whilst urging Wispshot to declare war on them. After heading back to the Colony, we realised that there was a server bug and we could hit the colony again and so we went ahead~

After that, time passed slowly and there were no war declarations. [HrinsFanClub Faction] then decided to have a friendly pvp with us. As the colony war was coming to an end, we saw an opportunity to get a second colony, The Rion Prairie, which was occupied by [What Faction], with [Sovereign Faction] assisting them. After an intense battle, which lasted around 20 adrenaline-full minutes,  we managed to secure our second colony.

In was all in all a fun CW and we must not forget to thank people like Fairre and Wispshot that made this all possible. Good job hooties! Give yourself a pat!:D Everyone that turned up for at least 3/4 of the Colony War will each receive a Raid Point! HOOTIE WOOTIES!

 
Join in the good fight with CHH today!
PM Wispshot / Camez / Ælfwyn for an interview now!

5)Colony Wars!

CHH will be attending colony wars from this week onwards and needs your help! With a newly appointed War General, Fairre a.k.a AT, we will be kicking some ass:D

Some tips to prepare for CW (specially for Moneylove XD),

  • You are encouraged to restart/defragment or close any d/l programs to get your computer to get it running at its peak.
  • set your game settings to low both out of game and in game.
  • Buy potions.
  • Buy more potions.
  • Download TeamSpeak(optional)  download it now
  • Log in at least 1/2 hr before CW (it starts at 8.00pm GMT+8) and check forums for updates so that you can be briefed accordingly and divided into neccessary squads.
  • Listen to instructions.
  • Feed the baby before CW or risk it starving.

7)Active recruitment!

Yes as you all would have notice CHH will be returning to CW. Hence, it is Vital to actively spread the hooty legacy and make them watch YATTA!

8)Probation Period!

Upon admission clubhoothoot, you will have to fulfill a 10 day probation period before becoming a full-fledged member. During those 10 days, you are encouraged to log in as much as possible so that your members can know you better. CHH however supports casual gaming and understands that you have other commitments at hand and hence, does not organize any activity that are compulsory. You are currently only required to log in once a month after becoming a full-fledged hootie. The CHH forums will only be available to you after 10 days, you are however encouraged to register as a forum member upon admission so that the transition can be processed asap. Any abuse or action that would damage CHH’s reputation will be dealt with severely.

New CHH regulations

February 15, 2008

Hie everyone!  ^^

    Happy Chinese new year and seasons greeting to all. Sorry I have not ben around lately, was in Japan for 9 days on holiday. :3

In light of the few queries regarding certain families being in the faction but are not online at all, we have implemented this new system to ensure that all the inactive/quit-the-game members are expelled to leave space for more active members.

For example:

If I needed to take a 6 week break from GE for exams and will definetely not be online because my parents have locked the cupboard. (note that this is just a hypothethical situation which did not happen to me. XD)

I will submit my reason for inactivity as follows —

In-game name: Ælfwyn
Reason: Exams
Expected date of return:  XX/03/2008

There will be a one month grace period, which will begin the day after your expected return date, following which you will be removed from the faction due to inactivity.
Please note that one month is really a very long period of time consisting of 4 weeks or 30+/- days or 720 hours or 43200 minutes or 2592000 seconds.
Your dog would have died 3 times if you didn’t feed it for this long.

CHH is a place whereby each and every one of us here are treated like kins.
With all due respect, if any one of us has to be inactive for a long period of time, it is appreciated that all of us (not just the FL or the DFLs) get to know where’s our friend heading to. 🙂

As some of you would have noticed, several inactive members have already been expelled from the faction to allow us to better understand our actual faction strength.
These are (ex)members whom have not been online for years, or have confirmed to have quit the game.

So please do not worry that we randomly pick people whom we have not seen for 1 or 2 days to just boot! >.<

Any comments or queries regarding this new regulation should be discussed in the forums 🙂

Useful tips while collecting materials

  • While farming more materials in Katovic/Frozen Plains, do use Levitating Wizards as most of the mobs there are not able to hit air-borne targets! It makes farming a cinche.
  • Katovic mobs have lower lightning resistance so using an Elementalist can make your farming easier too!
  • Try to set a target everyday because this will let you achieve a set amount of ingredients per day without withering out your resolution to make the item in the long run. It’s not possible to eat a spoon of peanut butter without feeling weird, so spread it out across the bread!
  • Take a 10 minute breather after an hour of play! GE can’t be enjoyed by blind people, so please take care of your eyes too >:D
  • Get Colony Hunt Quest from Colony Manager to increase your Family Reputation and get extra Ambers to spam!
  • Items are available at the forums at discounted prices

    ClubHootHo_Ot! What now?

    December 20, 2007

    [GodLike Faction] has requested a merger with [Clubhoothoot Faction] and other factions such as [Hellsing Faction] to form a new Faction; which would be more effective during Colony wars and could pit us head to head against other established factions such as [BROTHERHOOD Faction] and [Outcasts Faction]. We would henceforth like to hear YOUR views on the merger knowing that [Clubhoothoot Faction] exists because of the ties that blinds us together — Friendship. Please leave a comment on your views towards this issue. To help you decide, we have came up with a list of pros and cons if we were to reform.

    Option 1- Merger

    FOR

    1. We will gain an instant boost in manpower and attendance as well as competitive power rivaling other factions as plans will be less complication with 2 lesser voices (CHH and HS dissolved).
    2. We would have Colony Buffs to improve our individual gaming experience.(added HP for better boss hunts)
    3. More friends and contacts to help each other in need. (Assuming they do that. i.e. ‘some guy from BH bully me.’)

    AGAINST

    1. CHH being a small faction, by nature, might end up having little or no say in the new faction and would have to take orders from above.
    2. There would be little sense of belonging and uncertainty will put our existing members to unease.
    3. Members might be uncustomed to the rules of the new faction and feel the lack of freedom to do our own things if compulsory compliance of certain activities are enforced.
    4. Divided loyalty also makes a merger fragile.(What do we have in common other then the royalist alliance?). This might result in a rift because of people looking down upon each other.
    5. CHH was created by friends and for friends. Merger means that we have to adapt to the professional environment. (No spamming faction chat just because you are too bored!)

    Option2-We stay as we are

    FOR

    1. We will retain a say for our own faction.
    2. Have our ClubHootHoot stamped on the world map.
    3. We keep what we orginally set up to do. Keep Granado Espada as a game for us to have fun and relax and also do what we like instead of an intense and constantly-competitive environment.

    AGAINST

    1. It will require extra effort by everyone to do recruitment and pulling of loose friends to join our faction. As everyone of us is vital to the improvement to CHH.
    2. Current activities and comfort zones will have to be removed.
