    KTA 4.0 - A dying team?

    Unfortunately this question needs to be asked.

    Act 3 our first death..and probably avoidable at this. Players in the team have complained that we move to fast, already in act 1 last wednesday..and maybe moving so fast has brought the first casualty on us.

    After killing Meph, half of the team went to act 4, the other half fought some Bloodlords. KTA_Nicodemus died in the process. After that, most people did not stay long, most quit more or less instantly with a quick „goodbye“ or „cya at the forums“.

    The remaining few were more or less in a state of „Well..I thought KTA would be more fun“. Sadly Vectom hinted already that if Dave does not want to rebuild, he won’t continue as well.

    I don’t want to go into any detail about who did what and why. Just stop for a minute and reconsider: Are you still having fun? Are you having fun at the expense of the team. Do you want to be part of an untwinked team, still. If the answer is „No“, then by all means don’t join on Wednesday...or forma a twinked KTA 5.0 – After all..its about having fun, not ploughing along in a set of rules that you don’t like.

    If the answer is „Yes“, please be there on Wednesday...and PLAY as a TEAM. Please stay together. Please do not rush ahead or tele ahead or run a head. Please wait until everybody has done the trading in town and is ready to continue. It will only take 10 more seconds and be a much more relaxed experience for us all.

    That said I will be there on Wednesday with KTA_Dante.

    I agree with you Det, maybe we were moving a little too quick for some people. Also I think that the team as a whole needs to just generally relax a bit and not be in such a huge rush to leave town and surge ahead (myself included).

    As for the death of Nico, as I stated in the game, why did some of the team decide to stay behind in Act 3 after we dispatched Mephi? As far as I see it, we all know our res's are crappy, so to go wandering around the durance looking for meteor spamming bloodlords to kill is bad decision. My thought was to get the job done and head to act4 pronto. this seemed to be the idea of most of the rest of the team too.

    I will be there on Wednesday, hopefully with a full team of KTA'ers embarking on a more leisurely expedition. After all, we need to try and stretch this out till the next ladder season hits. I think if we kill 1 monster each night, we should get guardianship just in time ^^

    after the casualty and some chatting about how to continue i left with a completely unsatisfied feeling yesterday.

    things where going way to fast.

    me, being a barb, should be one of the fastest caracters in our team at this moment, having 2 points in increased speed already. i found myself at the back of the party struggeling to keep up very often.
    also, especially in kurast, we where like all over the map, killing almoost nothing, running past 99% of monsters, and so scattered we could never help eachother.

    to be frankly, i am surprised the first death ONLY happended after mephy, seeing our playstyle of yesterday i would have expected it way earlyer.


    well.... that being said... now what?
    first: i will be there wednesday, i am at least giving KTA another go. (i may be a little late, but that would be due to other reasons, trains to be specific)

    second: i think that wednesday, BEFORE rushing off into act 4, we should have a chat... yups... just talk, have fun, discuss, and make some important decisions about how we are going to play that night.

    third: our playing style WILL HAVE TO CHANGE!!!! we should take it slowly, and as a team. we will have to make someone the leader, and i don't care who that is, we all follow him. also if ppl are in town or something and ask to wait, don't rush off... just wait and have a nice chat, socialising and being social is a big part of the fun.

    last: i hate to say this, but if things won't change... wednesday will be my last day with KTA-4.0. :scared:


    so my final note....
    there is no need to rush things... there is no need to complete this game as fast as possible.. is there?
    i think its important to kill everything good, to make sure the bad guys go down, and we all live and have a laugh doing that.

    i hope to see all of you next wednessday :buddies:

    Staying Behind

    Ok,

    I was one of the ones who stayed in ACT3 .

    Theres a simple reason..........

    What is our Team called???

    KTA - Kill Them All.

    Not KSTBOTA4 - Kill Some Then Bugg$r off to Act 4.........

    This, amongst the rushing is my main gripe...........

    That said, I will continue, as I hate giving up on something.

    And, if we all slow down, and start enjoying the game, it could still be fun.....

    Kev

    Hi All,

    Sorry to hear about the death/s last night, and the disention within the team. I hope this can be sorted out by all involved.

    If you are short a member or 2, I am now able to join in as my UK holiday has now been cancelled. Please let me know, as I can start a new character and reach the appropriate level ... whatever that may be.

    Regards
    Syxx

    I will NOT be there on wednesday! I have totaly lost the spirit for this game now and its not the party that is wrong. I love all the members and the fun we had together. But i have played this game from the day it was out in the stores. Most of you know that i dont work right now (foot) but when i start to work again i will only have 2 days/week i can play computergames. And then i want to play a game i like and have fun with. Dont even need to smash the CD now :lol:

    So this is the final godbye from me, will only log into Bnet once more to give my stuff away. I will not read this forums anymore either (this treath i shall take a look in again) and i will take a look at the GAT forums from time to time.

    I really loved to play with you all both KTA and GAT!!! :buddies:

    Good luck and godbye! :thanks:

    I could write a whole paragraph to comment yestreen but this would be pointless.

    The facts are:

    - me and Dave won't continue with KTA 4.0 (not only because of the last incident but, similarly to Tloopz, we both don't have much time, especially in the KTA playing times)

    - I absolutely agree with Kev and Greenfire, we are KTA, not rush-machines. Meph was dead, so what? Though the idea of this team wasn't tele to andy - kill - tele to duri - kill - tele to meph - kill - ...

    - me and Dave will still play under KTA tag and form something like beta team, the playing times will be highly various, though

    - sorry for this all, I'm not angry on anyone. What happened just inspired me for this

    GL on your adventures KTA members!

    ..and GL Tloopz in RL, this community will miss you :hanky:

    Okay, no use crying over spilled milk. When kevman and I were in a gat-game, Chiller offered that she could play with us as well..she has a lv 19 untwinked barb.

    The way I see it, Vectom and Dave as well as Tloopz drop out. We are all sorry to see you go guys, but as always RL needs to be NO 1. Good luck with what you do - and please keep coming back here and look for us...or join us - you know when and where we play ;) Especially Tloopz, it has been great fun knowing you..and I hope your health improves very soon.

    So I suggest that Syxx, Chiller and baniser join us on Wednesday 19:30 CET in channel kta, where we either help new characters along or discuss strategies.

    The team is as of now.

    Ham - Poisonmancer
    Baroni - Cleric
    Greenfire - Barb
    Kevman - Druid
    Det - Bonemancer

    Pick you class and join :clap: Lets sort this out and have fun again

    Looks like we will also need a few more players by Wednsday. We are 3 down, and have yet to hear from Ham and a couple of others. Syxx and Baniser have already expressed interest, so I say we grab them before they try to get away ^^

    I think KTA 4.0 can totally recover from this early setback. We have only played 2 nights, and are now coming into the more dangerous areas of the game. Tight teamplay is not just recommended from now on, it is an absolute must.

    On a personal note, I would prefer the incoming members of KTA 4.0 to not make a Skellimancer. I have a tough enough job as it is trying to heal you guys with my holy bolts, but with a dozen skellis getting in the way, it is nigh on impossible.

    Loopz mate, sorry to see you go. Enjoy the world post D2. I give you a couple of months before you feel the need to step out onto the blood moor again :)

    edit: gee you are quick Det, gotta improve my speed-post skillz :)

    Take this the right way, I'm glad to see you leave :)

    It has been a blast playing with you and I'm sure you will have a good time spending your valuable hours doing something else than playing D2!

    For me personally I think I'm heading the same way, still want to make that Tesladin and a new LLD'er though, so I expect to be online now and then for a few months more. After that I don't know, maybe Guildwars, maybe a new girlfriend, maybe a new job, maybe a new home (I'm very soon about to move hopefully). So many things can happen to you that are more important than a computer game.

    But I greatly value some of the friends from here, so popping in to a forum or a quick log-on just to chat might be a good idéa.

    well... it seems everting is clear now... so lets get going again :flip:

    we lost our 2 cold sorcs, and the skellymancer in the proces. a big loss, but nothing we can't handle. will any of the 2 remaining necros take care of the curses ?

    i totally agree with syxx and baniser joining in... the more ppl .. the more fun.

    for the matter of what caracters those new caracters should be, my personal preferance would go to at least 1 more melee caracter. since we lost our skellys my job of tanking is getting a lot more difficult now. the jabbazon seems like a fair fit here :thumbsup:

    just a general note, and important to those joining in new from now on. we just killed meph, and are about to start act 4. we are all lvl 25 if i am not mistaken. this so you guys/girls know what to aim for with your caracters.

    lets KILL THEM ALL - version 4.1 :yep: :thanks:

    p.s. i won't/can't be on this forum tomorrow... but i will be there in the evening to play. (again.. i may be a little late.. but i hope not)

    Hi All,

    Tloopz ... you've been comrade-in-arms in many a game, I'm going to miss fighting by your side. I wish you well in your life after Diablo and hope that occasionally you do pop in (the forum) as say hi.

    From the remaining KTA 4.0 team I see we are missing some ladies... so I'll join up as a Sorc which should be a real laugh. I tried a sorc a couple times and died rather early on in the games. I don't really have the patience for low life characters, prefering to get in close and mix it up with the monsters. Not a good idea for sorcs. I don't paly them any more .... til now.

    And as we are all aiming to have some FUN ... I want to be a Hydra-Sorc (now, there's a build you don't see too many of) but in the spirit of teamplay, you can also put me down for a screenwide static :D

    I'm going to start one now, untwinked, and see if I can remember how its goes.

    Regards
    Syxx

    I really loved to play with you all both KTA and GAT!!! :buddies:

    Good luck and godbye!
    GL Loopz - and I hope to see you online in Sacred or Guildwars later:)

    I know this game has been out for sooo long and is mainly the people not the game that keeps me coming back for more (and the need for a Necro Guardian - mine died at level 63 last night!)

    Keep us posted on what you are up to on the GAT forum and will cu soon


    On a completely different light I could join up with you guys on Wednesday - but you know me I will probably be late

    I will message DET to see if you are up for some company when I get in from work - My barb is in act 4 and I think i may have given him a Siggies shield - but can always ditch that

    Chill

    EDIT: I was intending to build a frenzy barb - so hope that is OK

    Can sort out the details later ...

    frenzy barb, jabbazon and hydra sorc seems like fun and more fun to me :surprise:

    there aint that many melee caracters at this moment...
    just me... the barb... being a leaper
    the jabbezon would be to
    the other barb would be melee as well...

    but the druid is a windy
    the pala is a holy bolter
    the necros aint anything close to melee

    and while i will never say no to enchant... we might need the killing power of hydra and fireball just a tad more. (fireball is synergy to hydra iirc)

    anyways... up to you...

    that static however it very very very very nice :worship:
