I saw an ad on Facebook about the Albion alpha coming up and I have been following the game for a while. I have never seen a gaming community properly advertise outside of game ad networks (EVE Online allowed one of my previous guilds to advertise on the login screen).
I am a fledgling web-developer and for my day job work in Digital Branding and Strategy so I found the website very attractive and the fact that it was advertised using Facebook very interesting.
I have just switched from Windows to a Linux platform for my desktop and so have had to play mostly CS: GO and have struggled to find friends on there to play with. The grind to Rank 3 and competitive was awful (got there yesterday) and I would love to meet some people and play some CS: GO with them pretty regularly off and on again.
I also obviously am very interested in Albion Online but am not sure if I will participate in this alpha. Getting to talk to some folk who have participated before in the alpha stages would be great!
I am 30 years old and live in Raleigh, NC. I have done hardcore gaming before and looking for a more relaxed experience now that I am married…don’t have 40 hours a week to dedicate to an MMO. But when I DO play I like to play at a high level and am very competitive.
Again a pleasure to join the community and hope to log on to mumble (do they even have a linux version?!) and get to know everyone! You can add me on Steam, my username is belemrys.
