Project Alta Restarted !

Project Alta Restarted ! Whatsup folks, some may know back a year or 2 ago I started a thing in Wakfu where people could find others to consistently level up with, be it alts of high level people or newly started people who just got into the game. I called it Project Alta, and I actually got about 5+ people that I levelled with and it seemed to go well enough for me to want to restart such a thing right now. I quit back then because of the disconnect issues I was having with the game, but now it all seemed to have resolved itself with all the new updates.



So how does it work ?

If you're a low level ( currently seeking people around level 15-20 ) you can add me on skype. Why skype ? Because it's a requirements to make the levelling process easier ( by communicating through mics instead of typing which takes longer ) but it also makes the whole process alot more enjoyable, being able to talk and have a laugh while playing. I'll be looking into more group-oriented voice programs such as Mumble or Teamspeak once we get enough people, since Skype can get quite laggy. But for now just use skype and add me on it. I'll tell you the other names of people on there so we can all add each other and level with each other.



The Requirements

•Being able to run the game on your PC ( duh ! )

•Must have skype and a decent mic/headset and have a basic knowledge of the English language.

•Must be from the EU timezone ( Anywhere from GMT-2 up to GMT+4 ). This makes it easier for people to find others and to level with.

•No leeching yourself or getting leeched by others. ( It's ok to get leeched 1-2 levels for that new set you'd be wanting to wear for so long )

•Multimen / Sidekicks are allowed. If you bring a sidekick it would be prefered if that sidekick is geared and levelled enough to help us out with whatever we're doing at the time. Just be ready to kick your sidekick when we find another human person that wants to join the project !



Some additional info

I will, just like I did before, record the dungeon runs we do as a team. All recordings ( of myself, feel free to record yourself aswell (: ) will go onto my partnered channel (w
ww.youtube.com/user/rancidrode
) . Other than that I don't have much else to say other than I hope alot of you peeps will join in on this project, I hope we can all get our chars to 100+, and I hope we can make some great friendships throughout the process and have a laugh here and there and just enjoy ourselves!




Contact & Participants

I will keep this part updated, if someone joins he/she can have their name put up here for others to add aswell, however by default I'll keep the names off here untill I get permission, just for the sake of privacy of the others. I'll list them in this format : Ingame char name ( Level, build, class ) [ sidekicks and sidekick level ].

The Clockmaker ( Level 18 Air Xelor ) [ 31 Luminous + 16 Skale ]

This seems like a very nice idea for the lower levels, but I think it seems a little limiting at the moment that may not cater to everyone's limitations.

To name a few;

-What about people who don't use Skype?

-Without a mic?

-Who don't want to share their personal Skype with random people?

I don't wish to seem like I'm picking holes in this, it's a great effort, but I'm sure you'd want as many people as possible to join in; so you'd need to make it more open for everyone.

If this gains a lot of traction and turns into an active circle and you need spaces on a Teamspeak server, let me know, I'm sure I could get some slots ready for you and your groups in the server I co-host.

Best of luck~

That's a really kind offer which I'll certainly will accept once we have enough members joining in ^^. As for Skype, it's just to make the levelling process alot more fun, talking ( IMO ) is way more fun than having to type out and having to closely watch the screen for a reply.

Besides, if we got newer members joining it'll be hard to explain everything about their class to them through chat while in battle, had to do such a thing with an IRL friend and after 5 turns of missing his turn every time, we just agreed to go on skype and we both played alot smoother and alot faster.


As for people without a mic / headset. It's cheap to buy one ( they go for 5€ or less here for a default headset, might not be the best but it gets the job done in a decent manner ). If you really can't afford one at the moment then it's ok to drop in the call but not talk and just listen. So we can all speak and you can answer us in chat.


As for the skype thing, only I will have the personal skype and as said in the original post I will not hand out that skype name to anyone before asking for permission to do so.



Hope that cleared some of your questions (: And to anyone else who's got questions don't hestitate to ask !
