so I have a theory that most gamers have a bit of social anxiety (yours truly being a prime example) it is one thing to type some well thought out words on a screen, proof read it & then post it for your peers. it is quite another when the time comes to get an invite to voice chat & hang all of your insecurity's out in front of them. But we still feel a need to interface in this instant way & have the camaraderie and gratification of new friends. To this end & because Anthem has no guild system (yet) i will be activating a chat party on PS4 every day when i log on (around 5 pm mountain time) it will be called "Rusty 9" & will be open to all who have friended me on ps4. the sole purpose will be for all of us to log in & get a sense of each other. you don't have to say a word, just listen or join in or tell a wild tale to entertain us all! Eventually you will find friends & can peel off to a more private chat for adventures in Scarr slaying or Dominion busting! But Rusty 9 is there as a social spot & meeting hub, just for us the GS/ps4/Anthem crew.

See you @ the 9

This is a great idea! I love it. I'm gonna sticky it so it doesn't get buried :D

And honestly, there really is nothing better than chatting with other GSers. I remember playing with Gopp for the very first time and how frightened I was of saying anything. Seven years later and I'll talk to anyone :lol:

so I decided to play a little bit this morning before getting ready for work, and man have I already been spoiled! Group of randoms immediately take off, bypassing numerous material drops and even two chests! We get to a scar camp and they run around and get themselves all stoved up, so I fly around and rez them all and continue the fight. A few moments later, they are all down again, so I break off and raise them again. I finally catch a missile barrage from an enemy lancer and go down...and all three of those mothercluckers run right by me multiple times while trying to kill the dude...but if the earlier depictions of them being constantly rez'd didn't clue you in, they suck and all die again, causing us to have to respawn and try the whole thing over again...this happened two more times in the same area. If I hadn't been pressed for time afterwards, I'd have messaged them some rather unsavory words of wisdom concerning their "playstyles".

The Anonymity of certain game modes really does seem to bring out the worst. I'm not sure if its the expectation of never seeing these people again or the fact that these are the people that don't have friends (& all that implies) . Either way it comes down to "its good to have friends"

As with all theories they often lead to failures in the Experimentation phase :) At present there does not seem to be enough interest in this to maintain it. My plan is to close the channel starting Monday. If you have any unexpressed interest in this, just let me know here or on the channel. If interest is actually there ill reconsider.

Don't get me wrong Korchie, we are all still playing the game with zeal! There are many of us playing on PS4 & i'd be happy to group up to blast some outlaws :).

Nice! Now that I found out about it, I'll see what that is my time zone and try to be hanging around when I'm off of work!

Bioware has finally released the cataclysm, and it is pretty freaking great. So if you were waiting for new content, then this is it! I'll post more about it in the Anthem section
