Picking sides on RK2

Post by LT » Tue Aug 25, 2009 7:18 am

So I decided to roll an alt on RK2 for a change. Might be fun to play a new char from scratch - without hand-me-downs from older chars and whatnot ;).

Anyway, the question is - which side should I pick as a froob on RK2? Does either side have more highlevel froobs/froob orgs? I might never get to high levels (or even past subway levels :P) with this char, but if I do (and if I go through the token grind) I'd rather have picked the "right" side from the start ;).

I don't think there is anything special for a froob that's diffrent between the sides.
Tarasque is raided by both sides (and Neutrals together with Omni). The froob raid group (Tlfiveplus - see sig) welcomes all factions. And I'm sure you can find an org for all factions.

There is of course the differences between the factions such as certain items, being shot by the opposite side, side xp (depending on how much towers the side has at that moment), OOC/shopping chat channels and probably some stuff I don't think about now.
You can choose for the better items or side xp as some people do. But I would suggest one of the following reasons:

* You have friends on a certain side.

* You feel more comfortable with the ideas of a certain side: I would describe them as following:
-) Omni: You like to work for a big multinational (or rather multiplanetal) that tells you what to do and doesn't take it to strict with ethics.
-) Clan: You want to destroy the big multinational by all means, also unethical ones :P.
-) Neutral: You don't care about the conflict and love/hate everybody equally. As such you can trade with all sides and also kill all sides :D.

When I logged in a week or so ago, clan had 18% side xp and omni had 5% :o

oh and btw, now that I finally got my trader in your levelrange, don't go to Rk2 please... I hear people have 3 ears and 2 noses there. Please stay on Rk1 :D

Neut!

:D

In all seriousness, all three sides have large, froob-friendly orgs. Also, I need to correct Edta here: As of June, clan raid bots (Tara, as well as SL raid bots) have been opened to neuts, so neuts go wherever they want to.

Yarika, 58/2 Nanomage Nanotechnician (Lumen Orien)
Delima, 51/5 Opifex Fixer (Lumen Orien), former TL2 BS twink, future ToTW twink
And others

Orgs of choice: Shattered Dreams & Lumen Orien

Well, yeah I heard about that one. But I don't think it's happening yet. Most neutrals still have points with omni anyway. That is at least the main reason for me, and if I didn't had points with anyone, I simply wouldn't know.
Neutrals at both sides could cause a small mess because they don't tab each other though... :P

Thanks for the suggestions, but neither of them really apply - I know noone on RK2 and I've always played omni even though IRL I'd be more likely to go neutral or smel.. I mean clan. Main reason for picking omni on another server would be that I know my way around... and main reason for picking clan would be that I don't ;). Therefore, the only thing I could think of that'd tip the scales was if the froob community was better on one side or the other.

Don't worry. I'm not *leaving* RK1, just wanted something to do when I'm unable to find teams with either of my soldiers and get bored of camping dynas :).

Ahh, no. Part of me actually likes the token grind... can't believe I just typed that! Only a small part mind you, most of me hates it.

Thanks for *not* making it easier for me! ;)
