  1. This is the place to start planning the personal details of our dream Vegas experience with RoHers. Here you can post a thread if you're looking for a room share, rides, help with anything trip related, questions, connect with others who want to do the thing that you do too, etc. If you post a request or offer of assistance for room, ride, airline miles, etc.,, please mark it complete if you find the connection you need so others aren't still posting on your thread or having to scroll all the way through to see if it's still needed/available. By mid July, we will pin a post with all of the basic info we've compiled (dates, group rate hotel, etc) for you to refer to as needed. Look for this interest group and that info document to morph as we go. Note that there's also an RoH meetup channel in discord if you want to chat and stay informed! VEGASSS BAAAABYYYYYYY!!!! ("But the real skill points are the friends we make and meet along the way.")

  3. So here are the things that we will need to get done pre-launch 1) Play the BETA! (Starts July 20th) 2) Final Faction Poll (I'll put this up after Beta) 3) Server Poll (I'll put this up as soon as we have an official server list) 4) Join the conversation here and on the newly added new world discord channel on the RoH discord server.

  5. Thinking about starting this push again, who here has any interest in assisting with this? If no one wants to step up and take the lead, I am happy to drive the division proposal. We have had more RoH members playing FFXIV (that I'm becoming aware of) recently, and a push from some of our new members to get Friend ranks for their friends who play FFXIV. I honestly feel like this game is in direct alignment with this community's core values, and the FFXIV community, playerbase, multitudes of playstyles allowed, social/friendly aspects seem to fit right into what we view as important in acceptance of new members and continuing to grow RoH.

  7. Helloes everyone! I wanted to start a new topic for this, to try to organize a date to maybe go watch the O show in Cirque du Soleil! If anyone else is interested, let me know... I was checking some prices on the official page, and prices range from 80 to over 300 dollars per person. https://www.cirquedusoleil.com/usa/las-vegas/shows This is the page where I was looking. Since I am coming from South America, I will be staying with a friend for a whole week instead of JUST the long weekend, so let me know as well if u want to go on a week day instead of the weekend Hope to see you there!!

  9. We will be finalizing where and when as things progress. The idea is to have as many of us in one place as possible at least once during the weekend. We will have food and beverages, and zoom stations for people who can't attend to pop in and say hello.

  11. Preferred Name: Ciaran Age: 42 Preferred Pronoun (he/she/they, etc.): he/him Time Zone: EST Character Class: Main is Jedi Sentinel Watchman Game you will be playing with Remnants of Hope: SWTOR Official username for that game: Obiwanomalley (Legacy) 1. Have you read the Code of Conduct and do you agree to follow it? Yes 2. How did you hear about The Remnants of Hope? If a member invited you please let us know who. I’ve been keeping my eyes open for an active guild for a bit now. I had been a solo player since I started playing on and off in 2015 and started looking in the spring at guilds. I ended up joining one I was randomly invited to and have found it to not be active or particularly supportive. I have recently been watching Swtorista’s Twitch channel and this appears to be an active, supportive, and well organized guild. 3. If you could travel to any time or place where would it be? Excellent question. I think I’d travel back about 40,000 years to where I am (northern Virginia) and just walk the Earth. Enjoy some peace and quiet perhaps. Then at the end I’d flip the script and go a few hundred years into the future just to see if we make it out okay. 4. Upon joining Remnants of Hope you are expected to maintain a mature and friendly demeanor to everyone in game. What does maturity mean to you and do you feel that you can remain civil even with the nastiest players in the game? My perspective is that maturity is letting people enjoy the things they enjoy, how they enjoy them. I play SWTOR because I enjoy playing it—there’s no right or wrong way. So long as you’re not hurting anyone or are unnecessarily rude or mean spirited to others, enjoy. I’m too old and tired to get swept up in the drama. 5. If you could have any superpower what would it be and why? Not being hyper-critical of myself. And maybe a Green Lantern ring because it’s very utilitarian. Since it’s tied to the bearer’s willpower and the Guardian dudes have rules against using the power of the ring for your own BS, that seems like a practical superpower to have. (Credit: I stole the “for your own BS” line from a Life and Death of Superman video I saw on YouTube which is very funny and a pretty good breakdown of that comics storyline) 6. Have you been in other guilds before; on this game or any others? If so,what was your favorite and least favorite things about them? I’m in a SWTOR guild now and it’s quiet and generally inactive and not terribly supportive of newer players—which defeats the purpose of being in a guild IMHO. I’ve also been in in-game alliances in two games on iOS—Call of Duty: Heroes and Star Wars Commander. Both have been shut down for some time. 7. What five adjectives, and 5 only, would you use to describe yourself? Honest, hard-working, introverted, nice, funny. 8. Have you ever held a leadership position in a gaming community? Would this be something you are interested in in the future? I was an officer in my alliances on Call of Duty: Heroes and Star Wars Commander (although on SWC we were pretty decentralized). I will absolutely help out if asked, but not specifically interested in a leadership position per se. It can become a significant time commitment and I don’t want formal responsibilities to take over my life or degrade my enjoyment of the game. 9. What are your favorite and least favorite sounds? Right now my least favorite is the MS Teams sound because, unprompted, it gives me anxiety. My favorite sound is my son laughing (even though it’s not at my jokes, which are objectively quite funny). 10. What are your personal strengths and weaknesses as a person (not in game)? I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and default to assuming good intentions, until proven otherwise. I suppose I could bucket that either way so I’ll choose to see that as a strength. For weakness, I tend to get a little too amped up for things sometimes and have to mentally check myself to slow myself down. 11. Remnants of Hope houses players that enjoy all aspects of the game, Crafting, PVE, PVP, RP and Social. Which do you enjoy the most, and why? I’ve been playing mostly PVE but have been getting more into FPs and Operations lately on my main. I recently decided to get my other toons up to LVL 75 so more PVE is in the cards for a bit, but I’d like to get more into FP/Ops and explore some of the more social/cooperative aspects of the game. 12. The servers are closing down in 24 hours permanently. How would you like to spend the last bit of time in game? I’d probably see if there were any good achievements I could knock out before the end. I’ve been in this situation with both COD: Heroes and Star Wars Commander, which gave players about 2-3 months notice that they were shutting the servers down. I still played till they turned the lights off, mostly because I enjoyed it and wanted to savor it while I could. 13. What other games have you played and what did you like about them? Any games you are excitedly waiting for? I have mentioned COD:Heroes and Star Wars Commander. I enjoyed the strategy aspects of that game and mastering using different tactics while battling other alliances. I’ve also played most of the early Call of Duty games, early Assassin’s Creed, Myst/Riven, and KOTOR games on Xbox, but not multiplayer or online. Nothing that I’m specifically waiting for tbh, although I’ll get the next Star Wars Fallen Order game. 14. If you could be any animal (fantasy ones included) which would you be and why? A bear, because bears are awesome and can just roll around the woods all day with nobody bothering them. Bears can be chill though and I will always watch a video of a bear enjoy itself in a backyard pool or something. That bear isn’t bothering anyone and is living its best life. 15. RoH utilizes Discord for VoIP. Are you willing to use this platform, based on the needs of the activity you're interested in? Yes 16. Are you on the servers we currently play on and are you planning on transferring to join us? Yes, SF

  16. On one hand, I agree with you, on the other hand I can see why they didn't go with megaservers, in particular. Given the Company size limit of 100 and the amount of territories currently, it would start to feel a little crowded That said I do hope they resolve the server issue for launch, they for sure have the resources to do so. What I suspect is coming from something @Michael noticed last night where name selection is unique cross server. with that in mind I think they fully plan on merging servers at some point, which I guess isn't necessarily a bad thing overall (I personally don't really care what server I'm on at the end of the day, as long as I can play and not have to wait in a que aside from the obvious it needs to be in the same region). Seems a smarter approach would be to start with megaservers out the door to limit the amount of merges you need to do later on. When we know an official server list for launch I will put up a poll for that and we can discuss more there when we start getting a better idea where streamers and what not are going.

  17. Yeah let's see how it pans out over the 12 days. I agree we should revisit server selection for launch. I'm going to be getting feedback from testing west coast to east connections in the next few days

  18. It will be interesting to see how long the wait times will continue be on Olympus. I was able to get in after about an 1 hour last night, but that was only because I started queue while doing other stuff so didn't mind. Played to level 7, but had to log off to do other things. When I came back later I didn't have that long to play so created a character on a different server. Will continue to monitor, but if queue continues tonight I'll skip again and continue to play on a different server. It will be good to know for final server selection. It could just be temporary, but it's weird for me after coming from eso. I wonder why they chose this server configuration instead of a megaserver type environment? It seems having a bunch of servers is going to have issues long term that will require server merges and such when the game slows down. You can't have PvP on an empty server.

  21. Added! I think its extremely important that we are all together for the closed beta to get a feel for the guild systems, however, if anyone wants to go on a server on a coast closer to them then by all means! It is by far more important that you are able to experience the game in the best case scenario for yourself during this beta. The only thing I would remind is that your experience may vary if the Server chosen at launch is on the opposite coast

  23. Would it be worth picking the top East and top West server and then doing a run off between them? For a PVP game, the ping is more important to me than the name!

  28. If you can pick one thing to do "near" Vegas this is my suggestion! Just seeing the Grand Canyon, even for 5 minutes over a railing, is pretty awe-inspiring. If you are feeling up to about 1-2 hours of hiking not too strenuous, there is also some amazing viewpoints partway down on a man-made path.

  31. Info Sheet for RoH Meetup Vegas 2022 (there's a word doc attached that you can download.) Dates February 18th to the 21st (Friday thru Monday) You must book all three nights to get the group rate. You’re welcome to book additional days at the same hotel but will pay the regular rate for any additional days. No matter where you stay, we’ll aim to have most of our guild wide events at or near The D. In essence, it’ll be our “headquarters”. The Hotel The D Hotel and Casino 301 Fremont Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101 1.800.274.5825 The D Website Booking a Room @ Group Rate To book room(s) at the group rate, call 702-388-2274 or email reservations@thed.com (the group code won’t work for online booking). However you book, be sure to reference the group code DCRE21 or group name Remnants of Hope Gaming Guild to get the special rates. You must book by 1/18/22 to get the special rates. Room rates after this date will increase. Note: They will only reserve 15 rooms at a time for us. When those are booked, they’ll release another block of 15. Be aware that as time goes on, rates may increase. We’re only guaranteed the quoted rate for each block of 15 we request. The earlier you can book the better! Be sure to specify whether you want two queen beds or one king. We can get either, until they fill up. Cost The total for all three nights is $353.51. That’s for up to two person occupancy and includes the resort fee and the taxes. It's an extra $20 per night per person for 3 or 4 people in a room. This doesn’t apply to children, so there’s no extra fee to bring your kids. There's a $100 refundable security deposit required on check in day. They place a hold on your card and then release it as soon as you check out and they confirm that there’s been no damage, smoking, etc. in the room. The deposit required to make the reservation at the group rate is the first night plus tax, which comes to $100.57. We have a donation fund up and running to help with costs for those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to come. Details are still in the works. Please join the interest group (see below) to stay up to date. Cancellation Policy You can cancel up to 72 hours prior to arrival date to get your money back (the deposit you made when you booked). If you cancel beyond that, you forfeit your deposit. Important!!! Once You’ve Booked: Please use the link below to complete a form that lets us know you've booked your room(s). The hotel will only give us 15 rooms at a time and it takes a minute for us to request more. Our hope is to know asap when all 15 of the current block are full so we can request more right away.

    Our official RoH meetup in Vegas! Many people will be arriving early and staying later, but the core dates are the 18th to the 21st. See this calendar and specific topics and pinned messages for group rates, ride and room shares, and specific activities.

  33. I wouldn't mind whichever way this goes cause I see an aspect of any of the 3 being ok for this group. The Covenant makes the most sense with the Remnants of Hope name, but honestly I don't think that matters much. Honestly don't really want to put a vote on the poll due to being so indifferent.

  39. Interesting information. I dislike the model for this in regards to the storage being based on weight - I feel it can limit your ability to store mats and gear or whatever for your crafting endeavors or storing mats to slowly sell during the week and what have you, unless they lowered the weights of everything dramatically from the preview. Weight based storage ON YOUR CHARACTER at least makes sense, but allow us to store our stuff in the bank without a weight limit. I’d rather it be slot limits for the bank rather than weight. i remember having a lot of issue with this kind of system in the preview. Guess we will see soon.
