All Quiet on the Western Fort

As Bel describes, three days ago the Vaizel Asmodians took the to skies in full force. We managed to successfully capture our first Fort and morale was high. On Sunday, we grouped up once more and managed to actually take not one, but two Forts! /victory and /cheer ensued, and we all went to bed with a little more AP in our inventories. Monday morning, we woke up to:

Zomg the Balaur Ninja'ed Our Fort!

Though some weren't too happy about losing one of our Forts, personally I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I now have solid evidence to prove that the Baluar are a force to be reckoned with, and that they will be a key for balancing control between the Elyos and Asmodians later on.

When Aion's Fortress timetables were first announced I wasn't too pleased about it. However, now that some time has passed, I'm actually happy with the current system. While it may not allow for meaningful 24/7 Objective Based PvP Hotness, it does give players a big enough window to duke it out until they grow tired, after which it closes itself up to prevent ninja 3 A.M. Fort takes... unless you're the Balaur. It has a good balance between over-saturation (which leads to staleness and boredom) and drought (which leads to frustration of not being able to PvP).

Now, as you may have noticed, I've been somewhat lacking post-wise these past few days. Sadly, the RL faction has breached the Fort of Rer's Gaming Time, so I haven't had too much to write about. However, I do have a few interesting things to discuss later on this week. So while things may be quiet here at IAAN every now and then, never fear, for Rer is always here... or sleeping.
