Karen's recent article about RIFT's new looking-for-group tool got me thinking about Runes of Magic's own LFG tool. It seems like such a nifty function, but it hardly ever gets used in RoM. It's such an interesting tool that I'm happy to see in the game, but it also seems to be better on paper th...

Lately, I've had the topic of grouping crop up in different discussions, from the trend of decreasing group sizes (Star Wars Galaxies had groups of 20, then ...

In a blaze of fire and glory, Sansha Kuvakei's fleet clashed with players in a major offensive in Yulai.

A lot of them. While previously I had vowed to only level my rogue (my original main) to max level in...

Recently I've been having a hard time finding a decent pickup group in Age of Conan. I'm excited to run some of the Khitai 6-man instances as well as the old-world dungeons that I've yet to experience like The Iron Tower, Onyx Chambers, and Atzel's Fortress.

It's an old argument, but one that's recently come to my attention several times over the past week, so I want to take a look at the argument today.
