A bit late this month, but as usual here are the monthly community updates!
- The RSS feeds at the top of the home page have been removed. It could only fit 4 different game modules without looking messy, and even then not all of our chapters had available RSS feeds, so I decided to remove it. I will be adding something soon to replace it and keep the home page looking fresh!
- Rift's Nightmare Tide expansion has been announced, and it has sharks!
- We recently promoted some new senior officers! Silkhands, Dianthus, Niclas and Starch have all been promoted and should be able to handle any issue you can throw at them!
- A second GA run has begun on Tuesday nights, as well as a new IG run on Wednesdays. Be sure to check the forums and talk with the raid leaders if you'd like to get in and participate in these runs, though be sure to talk to your class lead first to get approved!
- Wildstar, wildstar, wildstar. Good lord has it grown recently. I want to put up a big round of applause for the Wildstar chapter. A month ago I was a bit afraid that we had decided on the details of the guild too late and it would be a very rough launch for the guild, however, a month later it is sporting over 350 members, all with great activity!
- Wildstar does need more officers, so if you're interested please voice that to Total.
- More and more guild members are hitting 50, and its time to go through attunement! The guild is at a stage where it is pushing to get people through attunement and many of the officers will be looking to go through adventures and dungeons to help achieve attunement for those that need it.
- 1.1 is out and with it both Blighthaven and Northern Wastes were added!
- There have been lots of reports of compromised accounts within the past few weeks, so please consider adding Two Factor Authentication to your account. Those who do will even receive a bonus mount for doing so once it is added!
- SquareEnix just released their newest content patch, adding a new level to Crystal Tower, a new primal, new dungeons/HMs, PvP etc.
- Talamira and Mayrin have been working hard to revive the FFXIV Chapter, if you are also interested in playing FFXIV and being a part of the chapter again, lend whatever help you can to them to reboot the FC!
- Trion just recently released patch 1.2 which added a ton of balance fixes to the game preparing it for launch, though unfortunately it also added 70,000 new sound files to be translated.
- Beta has been postponed for the time being due to the aforementioned files to be translated, but we can hope it will be soon!
- Trion opened a new server, Omega, to balance out the immense population currently on the alpha servers.
- We have already picked up some members and Dio has been promoted to acting leader for the time being as neither me nor Bero want to burn out on ArcheAge before launch. She has been the one finding members and helping people out, so give her props for helping the guild make its mark in Alpha!
This news post may be updated soon as well to clarify things, especially regarding the FF Chapter if recruitment takes off, but for now that's it. I hope you guys have had fun the past month in Philanthropy and look forward to the new changes for your respective chapters, or all of them!
