  1. I appreciate the nominations, and would like to congratulate the others who have received awards within the last few days as well.
  2. I'll be working on finishing up my yellows, then pushing my reds, however, I may get distracted by making a new build. Anyone who needs things knows to come my way though, so it's nice I'm not the only map daddy now.

  5. Tuesdays and Wednesdays (as quite a few people know) are my normal days off work, and since my schedule will be back to normal this week I'll be using tomorrow and wednesday to do some farming in Path of Exile. Mapping, delving, doing master missions and boss stuff are all on the list. So if you're looking to play or need some help with something, or just need someone to chat with while you play, feel free to hop in the discord and hit me up with that @ tag or dm me and I'll hop in if I'm not already on.
  6. until
    Running a Launch Day Event for Path of Exile's new league Blight to garner interest in the game and help our full members fulfill their membership duties.
  7. Path of Exile: Blight launches Friday Sept 6th at 4pm EST and in light of that, there are a LOT of Full Members, and Full Member-Inactive's, who are not meeting the criteria for this SFM cycle and could stand to attend an event. And let's be honest, who doesn't like killing shit?! So come out Friday and join us for the PoE Blight Launch Event which will officially start at 3pm EST. It's an hour before launch time so that people can get all their set up's ready, dl the game, patch up, and figure out a build before things kick off at 4pm EST. This event will go from 3pm EST til 5pm EST, in terms of an official MadCast event. Disclaimer: I do NOT expect people to stay on beyond the scheduled 2 hours, however, I will NOT count you for the attendance if you don't at least attend the full 2 hours. Most of our core players like myself, @MadCast: Lunalesk, @MadCast: A1C_Ju, @MadCast: FancyPants, @MadCast: Baal, @MadCast: uT Nitrogen and others will most likely be on all evening working our way through the story to maps. If you stay beyond the 2 hours required for the event, that's your choice (and the right one I might add!). There won't be extra credit for staying on longer either (because I know someone will ask!) but you will get to hear some great banter if you can manage to stay on past 10pm EST when some of us start getting weary and tired. The game is free to play by the way and can either be downloaded via the official website at PoE's Website or via steam as well. Again, if anyone has questions, comments, concerns, post them here or reach out to me personally via DM in discord or in the path of exile text channel. For reference, linking an older post with resources: Resources Hope to see you all Friday at Launch!
  8. Also, if you haven't already, you can go to this site and download the offline build planner to really mess around see what works on paper before hand.
  9. Blight League is launching on Friday Sept 6th at 4pm est, and I just wanted to give everyone interested a breakdown of things going on this week. First and foremost, thanks to @MadCast: Support Welfare for giving us our own subforum! With that out of the way, I'd like to let everyone who didn't see it on discord, or did and forgot, know that I *will* be off work friday and saturday. This means I will be playing at launch at 4pm est, and will be pushing to be in maps by the end of the night, so roughly within 6-8 hours after launch. With that, I am fully open to bringing anyone and everyone regardless of experience level to play with me. I will attempt to keep a moderate pace as to make my time crunch, but I will not use it as an excuse to leave someone struggling behind. If I don't make it to maps the first night, then so be it. I will not make anyone feel unwelcome simply because I can't meet a goal or make it to maps by a certain time frame. I fully encourage my fellow MadCast community members who are veterans at the game to adopt the same principle and bring in other less experienced players and help them level straight away from launch. However, I do understand not everyone will feel the same way as I do, nor should they. I can't, and won't, ask anyone to play at someone else's pace, simply for interaction. Anything and everything you can do in the game, can be done solo. If that's your wheel house, then go for it, more power to you. However, I feel that to help our core playerbase in Path of Exile, and our MadCast community as a whole grow, then we need to take it upon ourselves to help out our newer players (in our community and from outside of it) learn the game by grouping up with them and sharing in their experiences. Whether it's their first death or their first triumphant Exalted Orb drop, I feel it'll be a lot more impactful for them when they experience it with friends. A side note: PoE is an intensive game graphics wise on your PC, so if you have a potato, or an older PC and you're worried about how it'll run, download it ahead of time and test out the settings and lower them as much as you need to, so that we're not dealing with technical issues on launch day. That is the one and only reason that I will leave you out of our group, so please do be prepared so as not to bother other people with PC issues like dc'ing/crashing. With all that being said, I encourage anyone and everyone reading this to come out and check out the game at launch, and see just how a company like GGG handles high demand traffic and day 1 queue's compared to a AAA developer like Blizzard (Had to poke some fun at @MadCast: Dez, @MadCast: Wazap, and @MadCast: Hitori). There will be more things revealed and released this week as stated by GGG and referenced in the Blight League Compiled Information Thread on Reddit. I've pinned a lot of the important things in our discord channel, but all of them are in that reddit thread and easily accessed. Here's their plan for the rest of the week: Teasers every NZ weekday from now until launch (and weekends too if we're lucky) Sunday, September 1: Blight League challenge rewards revealed Monday, September 2: Legion League ends, 3.8 Balance Manifesto Tuesday, September 3: 3.8.0 Patch Notes, Passive Tree and Item Filter Information Wednesday, September 4: Complete new/updated skill gem numbers Thursday, September 5: Patching timeline and (maybe) torrent Friday, September 6: 3.8 & Blight League PC launch. Please refer to the countdown on Path of Exile's Website to determine the launch time for your timezone. Monday, September 9: 3.8 & Blight League console launch. Exact time TBA. If there are any questions, comments, concerns, please leave them here or in the path of exile text channel in discord. Myself and the other veteran PoE players in the community will be able to address them for you. PS: If you took the time to read this whole thing and know the secret word, post it here for a free portal scroll from me on day 1!
  10. I mentioned this the other night, but we have an outstanding FM and outstanding RFM award right? Well, I think we need an outstanding SFM award, that should go to @MadCast: Support Welfare. He's stepped up into this new role and a done a lot for the community so far, both in plain sight and behind the scenes.
  11. Already grats'd ya on discord, but again, congrats and welcome to the community officially. You put in some good work!
  12. I will not be there tonight, have to close at work so won't be home til almost 11pm est.
  13. I literally stumbled on the first one last night, the other two are new and I've been listening to them constantly since they came out as I'm a huge fan of their's.
  14. Update: Starting a new job tomorrow, so I'll be working 12pm - end of dinner rush, so with that in mind, @MadCast: A1C_Juis going to run the event tomorrow night while I get the rest of my week sorted out tomorrow, hoping to still run sunday night work permitting.
  15. The PvE one, since there were only two.
  16. I would be behind this choice, free to play games are always a good solid option imho, and this seems like it has a good background and community.
  17. Glad to see you stop by, just wanting to confirm this: Are you officially wanting to apply for candidacy for full membership with us? If so, reply to this and let us know
  18. I'm actually thinking it might be necro this league for me, I'm sold on the golem.
  19. With the announcement of the new Path of Exile: Blight league, I am holding another OPEN DOOR in preparation for the new league just like I did last league. This is for new and returning players who would like to give this new league a go, and have questions, comments, concerns, or simply wanna try out the game in the standard league a bit and get some advice before the new league starts. This is also a great time for myself and @MadCast: A1C_Ju to help everyone with getting things set up, like downloading the game (either standalone client or steam version, both are free), configuring loot filters, planning builds with Path of Building, and other various things. If this sounds like something you're interested in, please drop by Saturday August 24th or Sunday August 25th between 9pm - 11pm est. I will be around both nights, and other knowledgeable people from our Path of Exile community may be as well. *************************************************************************************************************************** Also, I had mentioned to a few people that I might run a for fun private league for a 10 period prior to league start. However, do to work and time constraints, I can't make this happen. For that, I apologize, however, anyone who needs to do some build testing, can still do so in standard or Legion leagues, and I have characters in both that can run around with you when I have time. With that being said, I look forward to seeing everyone on either Saturday August 24th or Sunday August 25th between 9pm - 11pm est.
  20. Hey everyone! GGG has just released their announcement of their newest expansion and challenge leagues called Blight, and so far there seems to be a lot of exciting new content and class/ascendancy reworks, new skill gems, items, and just fun stuff all around. The release trailer for it can be found here: And the official page with all the juicy information you need can be found here: https://www.pathofexile.com/blight This new content drops on Sept 6th 2019 @ 4pm est. Hope you're ready to slash your way to 100! (Or 90, cuz truthfully, most of us reroll new chars by then lol)
  21. @MadCast: Munsa is already putting something together for this, it'll be after TH on 9/9
