  1. Hey Ghosts! Welcome to the latest iteration of gotr.us! We hope you'll like it here. There are a plethora of new features that we'll be showing off, but initially, I just wanted to drop a line to let you all know to expect a couple of bugs. The admin team has worked hard to iron out as many as we could, but if something's broke, just direct a PM to me or shinything and we'll get it looked at. The top menu will be changing sometime soon to recategorize a few things, but otherwise, WELCOME. ALL HAIL PICKLE CAT. ---Robo

  2. Greetings, Ghosts! The community has been abuzz with talk of the upcoming free-to-play EVE Online expansion. I want to take a moment and explain a few things, especially about GOTR's history with this particular game and what direction we'll be taking if there is continued interest in playing this game. As of this writing, we are strongly considering attempting a GOTR branch in EVE - but there are going to be some top-level decisions made, for the good of the group, that will seem a bit out-of-place with how we usually do things and I believe it's important for everyone to have some knowl

  3. Introduction Generally speaking, I like to do one of these per month and have a section devoted to each game or different aspect of our community. However, there have been many concerns voiced about the future of Planetside 2 and GOTR's role in it, as is to be expected following such a big announcement. Daybreak Games laid off a large amount of their workforce, including several people that we have seen for the last few years. Others, like the creative director, Matt Higby, were not laid off but ended up leaving instead. Margaret Krohn (our own MaggieAnne, some of you were around back then)

  4. Dear GOTR Community, We received notice that the member known to us as Krinsee, or Kerwal, passed away a few weeks ago after battling a lengthy illness. I was asked to write a brief email for those of you that are not currently active so that you are not kept out of the loop - I apologize for not writing sooner. It is always difficult to lose someone, especially a very active community member like Krinsee. In the past, we've had to say goodbye to members like PJC, Pawnee, Ekaly, and Shinook, and this process never really gets any easier. Krinsee will be added to our Ghosts Eternal page a

  6. WORK IN PROGRESS So. You've just gotten yourself a shiny new rocket kestrel, and are aiming to go out and get some kill mails (preferably not your own). the question is, how do you do it? This article seeks to capture the thought process behind fighting all manner of enemies in a rocket or light missile fit kestrel. Table of Contents: Weapon Mechanics Turrets Launchers Drones The most important step in understanding PVP is damage, specifically how damage is calculated. It's the foundation upon which pretty much all of your strategy in a k

  7. We define hacking as running third party software or altering files of the game in a way that gives you an unfair advantage. Don't try to outsmart this definition. We know it when we see it. If you think something might be a hack/cheat/exploit, it probably is. Ask! Better safe than sorry. Hacking ruins our reputation as sportsmen. We have a positive reputation and we aim to keep it. That reputation encourages people to join us, and that's the whole point of our organization: to play games together. Even our opponents respect us. Not just the fearful kind of respect we get for winning again

  8. General Community Updates Hey Ghosts! We have some exciting news. Firstly, check out this snazzy front page that the admin team has been working on! Additionally, the top menus have been revamped to give better ease of navigation for all! A big thanks to shinything and RedKnights for the work they've done getting this rolled out. On the fundraising front, we got it done in just under a week! We had 50% of our goal in within a couple of days, before we even announced the fundraising drive! The other 50%, plus a bonus, was in before the end of the week, and that is amazing. We thank you for y

  14. General Community Updates Dice update: I have all of the dice sitting on my kitchen table. I was ready to send them and then realized I didn't have any envelopes, so I ordered a crate of them - once the envelopes arrive, I'll start shipping the dice! Remember that if you missed your opportunity to buy the dice this spring, we will have extras available for purchase in the GOTR web store that we are launching Soon™ Teamspeak: We have a new channel, named "Ghost Town" that we want to encourage people to use. It's the first "community social channel" we've ever had - each individua

  15. GOTR Meetup 2015 For years, we've wanted to do a real-life GOTR meetup. We are doing it this year! Friday July 17 - Monday July 20, in Sandusky, Ohio. Sandusky is the home of Cedar Point, one of the world's biggest amusement parks. There are several Halls of Fame, a water park, and a casino, as well. Please let us know if you are able to make it, where you'll likely be staying, etc. We don't believe we have enough interest for group discounts, but that can change! So let us know as soon as you can! You can reference this thread for more details. We are developing a tentative agenda for the

  16. General Community Updates The top menu has been reorganized to hopefully provide easier, more intuitive navigation around the site. Remember that in addition to hovering over the buttons to see the drop-down menus, you can click on most of the buttons themselves to be brought to the "home" area for that button. Click on the top "Tera" button, for instance, takes you straight to the Tera homepage. Clicking on the top "Community" button takes you straight to the gotr.us homepage, etc. The Secret Word has changed; it is no longer "Chocolate". The Secret Word will be updated in the in-game MOTDs

  18. General Community Updates There are changes coming to the GOTR Twitter feeds. The original @GotRPlanetside account has been renamed to @GotRGaming and will serve as the chief public relations account for our community, interacting with developers of our favorite games and communicating with other gaming communities. Each primary branch will be given their own handle, like @GotRPlanetside or @GotRWildstar, which will be used for announcements and notifications within that game only. This way, anyone playing only Wildstar will only get Wildstar event notifications, anyone playing Planetside 2 w

  27. Hey Ghosts! As we announced at last week's raid and as we've been announcing on this site and on Twitter, GOTR has some new functionality we're all very excited about. RocketChat, an app similar to Slack, Dischord, and other chat apps, was recently released and allows for us to control our own chat server (along with other key features like mobile apps, push notifications, and the like). @shinything spent many hours getting this up and running, and now close to 100 GOTR members are already using the server! You can access the chat at several locations, including clicking the new "Chat"

  42. Greetings Ghosts, and welcome to 2016! We hope everyone has had a great holiday season. Now that the holidays have drawn to a close, it's back to business as usual, which means operations and events in our primary game branches and heavy activity in the Other Games channels as people get back to their computer desks. General Community Updates The last of the pre-ordered GOTR dice have been shipped out. There will be nearly 50 extra dice that we will sell, in pairs, to members. Because we want the maximum amount of people to enjoy the dice, orders will be initially capped at one pair pe

  43. General Community Updates The 2015 Fundraiser was a resounding success! Thanks to all of your donations and dice purchases, GOTR is fully funded for (at least) the next year. Depending on some software upgrades and renewal fees, possibly two years - but don't worry, we'll keep doing the GOTR swag sale and we are still planning to launch the GOTR online store in the fall. Thank you, everybody! The lights are still on! If you were unable to purchase dice, t-shirts, or any of the other GOTR swag we've had over the last few years, the online store will have some extras that you'll be able
