World of Warcraft is banned in Crimea

world of warcraftBlizzard Entertainment

A number of Crimean gamers are complaining that they have been blocked from accessing the online communities attached to “massively multiplayer” titles such as Diablo and World of Warcraft. Some are attributing the service blackout to the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

The theory that the U.S. is behind the shutdown comes from the recent signing of an executive order banning the import and export of American tech products and services to Crimea. Secondhand reports posted to gaming forums and social media, however, suggest that some users in Crimea may still have access.

TSW Invicta on Twitter!

Submission Type:

One of the more interesting aspects of TSW is the Secret World Twitterverse Experiment. Basically, the idea is that FunCom has set up several twitter accounts that they periodically post to and more than a few roleplayers in TSW have jumped on board to post 'In Character' tweets there. I've jumped on board with this and heartily encourage you to do the same! Post here with your character's Twitter account!

TSW Channels for Invicta's Ventrilo Server

Submission Type:

I've set up several channels in Invicta's Ventrilo server for TSW. I'll be hopping on Vent when in-game, feel free to jump in when you'd like. It is by no means required, but can be very helpful, particularly when coordinating questing and Dungeons.
For instructions on how to download and use our Vent server, check out the topic here.

TSW Chat Scripts for Invicta

Submission Type:

I've modified a script I found online to help auto-join you to the #invicta channel in-game so that you don't need to remember to do it each time you log in or zone. You can download the scripts here.

To install, just unpack the zip and move the files within to the Scripts folder in your Secret World directory (on my computer, that's C:\Program Files (x86)\Funcom\The Secret World\Scripts ). The two files within are text-based, so you can open and edit with any text editor (Notepad, Wordpad, etc.). I've included a lot of channels for RPers and radio stations in there, so if you're not interested in those, just go in and delete.

Enjoy!

Submission Type:

After many hours of watching videos's to Queensryche's album, "Operation:Mindcrime", including lyrical ones, I think I've finally interpretted how I will relay this story in the game TSW. I'm posting this OOC for you all to see, but remember what you read here is IC, and should not be released under any circumstances. Each part will be slowly released over time. Thank you.

EA comes up with an ingeniously sleazy new way to milk money from gamers

EA comes up with an ingeniously sleazy new way to milk money from gamers

The freemium game industry just took a twist for the worse — although you can’t help but appreciate the ingenuity of developers in this particular case. EA has decided that players will need gas for their car races inside Need for Speed: No Limits, and the company will sell it to you via in-app purchases.

FROM EARLIER: 2015 is the year that we stop preordering video games once and for all

Of course, there’s always the option of waiting for your tank to fill back up automatically, but that will not always coincide with your need for gaming, as that will take some time.

Harrassment by former member Bellh

Submission Type:

Please be aware that I removed Bellh from the Invicta Security Company this morning for publicly harassing another member of Invicta, refusing to stop when asked to by an officer and issuing threats. I tried to handle it as respectfully as I could, but they've elected to start harassing other members of Invicta on alts (Lil-Cherry, another alt is Sillea). If you are harassed by this person, please be as respectful as possible, take screenshots of the conversation and email them to me at . I'm hoping they it go soon, but if they don't, I'd like as much evidence to pass on to FunCom as possible.
Thanks, gang. And sorry for any problems... my initial instinct was that she might be a problem, but I'm a softy at heart and try to give everyone who wants to join a chance to become a part of the family.

I love you loonies. See you soon.

Possible Cover Story

Submission Type:

Since our organization is conducting a pretty covert mission I figured a cover story was a good idea. Since we are operating in Egypt I figure our cover story could be this: "We are currently contracts by a third party, who we are not at liberty to discuss (The Kingdom). Our clients maintain full confidentiality. We are tasked with providing logistics, security, and tactical support to the Maryan Rebels operating out of Egypt." // Decent cover story huh? Or it could be what we are actually doing! ^.^

As a side note the following link contains our updated business card: http://i.imgur.com/1dUvr70.jpg

Weekly Ca' d'Oro token/Issue signet run!

Submission Type:

Now this is something I would also like to do. There is a lot of cool outfits, gear, and titles you can pick up spending the tokens from these runs, and also blue signets are very nice too! They are easy and we can pretty much take anyone regardless of gear level. The backhand to this is: in order to get the missions you NEED issues six and seven. So, if people can please post if you have these issues I can get a feel for if it is a good idea or not.

Weekly Elite Dungeon run!

Submission Type:

I was talking with several Invicta members and have noticed at least six are ready for Elite duengeons! So I am putting together an Elite Dungeon run at 7:30PM Eastern Time (New York). It will go for probably about two hours and should cover at least 4/8 dungeons. I would like to hear everyone's thoughts about this! Please let me know if the time is acceptable, or if you would like me to reschedule it for a different time. If you choose reschedule PLEASE post a time that is preferable for you.

Possible branch of Invicta

Submission Type:
Platform:

I saw Noct and a few others talking about TSW, and while I have absoltuly no intention of playing that game (for my own reasons I will explain in PM's if asked) I can understand wanting to find another place to RP.

I would HIGHLY reccomend taking a look at ARCHAGE, which is where my Finn and I would be had it not been for invicta on TOR. It has its problems but it is a fantastic place to RP and is beautiful.

Sitting in the airport waiting for the first leg of my flight. I'll be in Arizona a little after 8pm... MST, I think. The computer will still take a few days longer, so the phone will be my only net access. Find me on Skype if you'd like to chat or RP while I'm in limbo. :)

For Noctifer. TSW RP idea

Submission Type:
Platform:

I've been a HUGE Queensryche fan for years, especially the Operation:Mindcrime era.
The whole album would make a great plot for an RP story.
I'm posting the title track here, just to give you an idea. It definitely has that Illumanati vibe to it. (Though could be altered for any faction)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAI2QOBMlTA

Let me know what you think, and I may return to TSW, as the pawn for this role, with Noc's varient being the mastermind behind it. *evil grin*

The Invicta Initiative Fan Comic

Submission Type:

I've started posting pages from a little fan comic I've been working on to explain some of the backstory of the cabals. Future issues will be more focused on the stories people are telling within the Cabals. Here's the direct link to the first page of Issue #0, though I also included a link under 'Media' in the navigation bar.

Opening A Secret World Chapter for Invicta

Submission Type:

As many of you know, I've been tossing around from game to game for a while looking for something that inspires me. After a lot of consideration, I've finally settled on the Secret World, a modern horror MMORPG by Funcom. TSW is the game I've often returned to (because its free to play) when I needed a break and wanted to play an MMO solo. Well, I've decided its time to end the solo part. I'd like to invite any current member, past member or friend of Invicta to come play.
There are some pros and cons to Secret World, of course:
Pros:

  • Realistic graphics (a must for me)
  • Engaging gameplay and story-driven quests
  • A strong, active RP community
  • Endgame content (though see below)
  • Free to play and subscription models available
  • PvP Content
  • Rich and complex character advancement/abilities (points-based, not class-based)

Cons:
