Wrath of the Machine, Fri, Nov 11

If you're interested in running the Wrath of the Machine raid this Friday, November 11 at 9-11pm Eastern, post below. First come, first served, but you should be at least closing in on 365 light. We will probably start from whatever checkpoint the Tuesday night group gets. If you sign up and find out later that you won't be able to make it, please post again here and let us know so we can find a replacement.

We'll certainly form two groups if enough people are interested!

I'll keep my eyes out: I'd kind of like to know by Thursday night if there's enough for two groups. If there's at least 10 signed up by that time (or if we drop to below 6) I'll plan on being online Friday as well.

Krak.  I sent a message to RippingGesture to see if he is available, he is.  That makes 11.

Thanks, Kal. Maybe one more will come out of the woodwork to help us out.

Looks like we have a good chance of forming two teams on Friday. The Tuesday night crew have an Aksis Phase 1 checkpoint to offer. Assuming we go by posting order, we will have:

Team 1: SC Fnord Ranger, Kal SC, DarthTabasco, DEEP_NNN, BLAMnation, and myself

Team 2: Duke12, OldnAchy, Hammerdrake, Ra Darkman, RippingGester, gmantx

Sounds like a good time is to be had Friday night.  I'm going to throw this out there to muddle on.  Does team one want to run monitors Friday?  It will require a fresh run which will also allow us time to team build and figure out how each of us has been approaching the encounters before we dive into Aksis.

Monitors are easy, I've run the 4th monitor twice now, and am comfortable with translating the binary to decimal codes quickly. 

Happy to do whatever, but wanted to throw this out there as an option.

I definitely want Outbreak Prime someday, but just clearing Aksis would be great. You should also factor in that we tend to call it a night after two hours (can often go longer, but the quality of my play starts to suffer).

I'm fine doing whatever you are most comfortable with Krak. Once we figured out how to start the OP quest, it really doesn't take too much away from the time it takes to do a full completion, but it would mean starting completely over. 

However, if you had rather focus on using your checkpoint and simply completing the raid, that's totally understandable. Honestly it may make more sense to get at least one completion under your belt before doing the OP quest. If we do a fresh run, get the monitors and still stall at Aksis, it will have been pointless. There will be plenty of opportunities to run the monitors.

I'll do whatever the group prefers.

I understand and getting Aksis down is the main goal.  I just wanted to throw the option out there, in case you wanted to try it.

I am comfortable going for monitors if the rest of the team wants to. I can also do the binary to decimal translation quickly.

Krack, took us about 2.5 hours to run it with the monitors and that was trying to figure out how to do it all and getting our butts kicked on trying to reviving each other on the bridge due to someone dying in a really bad spot.

 

With most of the team knowing how to do the monitors, you should be fine with the 2 hour window.

I'm happy to say that both teams got to raid tonight. Team 1 had it pretty easy thanks to all of the Aksis experience in the group. DEEP and I got our first Aksis kill in under an hour. Nice work, guys!

Like Kal said, everybody has to do their jobs to make it work. You guys pulled your own weight in there.

Congrats on getting your first clear, guys.

2nd group didn't quite defeat aksis last night, but we made good progress. I think we had one that hadn't ran this raid at all previously and several without much aksis pt2 exposure, so it was mainly a learning experience, but I think we accomplished that at least. Highlight of the night for me was the 1 year old nemesis that reset Doorgunners xbox mid-encounter!
