Global chat handles

Not sure if anyone from pryd is playing CoV other than me and Haarewin. If you are playing, might be nice to swap global chat handles. These are chat names that can be used to speak from anywhere to anywhere (including across servers) and will find you on any alt.

My global handle is @Sheriff Fatman

I had it in my hands in the shop yesterday, is it a good game?

I was kinda surprised to find how much I am enjoying it.

You can customise the way you look a lot, and although I never thought that would be important to me, I really like the way it makes more individualism between people.

The gameplay is partly story-driven, partly leveling and partly missions. There's a bit of trophy collecting (though they call them badges) and a bit of character progression, although it isn't complex. The gameplay is what I have found most surprising. I'm enjoying it much more than I expected.

In a way, anyone coming from Prydwen will have one fairly big issue to address, which is community. This isn't so much a CoV thing as it is an "any MMORPG outside prydwen" thing. We're used to having a lot of friends and a low barrier to forming groups, but everywhere I've gone other than pryd (including SWG, WoW, other DAoC servers) seems like there are far fewer ties between people.

Being in an active guild (called Supergroups in CoV) would probably get around that. I'm not in a big SG, but I've made a couple of steady friends in game so I now group with them when I'm on. Would be nice to be part of something bigger, but it's not worth me sorting it out because I go away for nearly a month at the end of this week.

All in all I'd say give it a go, but maybe do it as part of a group with Thand and a few others. Plus you might be careful when designing your costume. Don't want any young lads falling off their seats.
