For those who have not seen it previously, welcome to Martyr Square, in Praag. It’s hard to get in one screenshot, but it’s about the largest single space in Praag, and is almost slap bang in the middle of the zone slap bang in the middle of Tier 4. For all you lore/role-playing fans. not only is it a city in Kislev, but at times it felt like battling in a medieval Leningrad. Cool.
I took this picture when it was “quiet”. I could have taken it when there was about 300 people fighting hard, with bodies flying everywhere, but there will no doubt be plenty of those on the interwebnet soon enough.
No, I wanted to check out what it was like on a Sunday morning. This Sunday happened to be just before the end of Closed Beta, and Order must have been busy little beavers overnight, because every Tier 4 zone clear to the Inevitable City had been locked for Order.
Now that was rare enough as it was.
But what surprised me was to discover that my sneaking suspicion was right; there were people fighting at Martyr’s Square.
Now, I’m not going to start shouting “Njubs!” in my best “leet speek” (that’s about all the “leet speek” I know. “Njubs”, “leet” and “speek”. Someone should shout “Get with the times, grand-dad!” at me. In “leet speek”, of course) at them. They’re PvPing, they’re having fun, and they’re ideally placed when the front makes it’s way back to Praag. It has become *the* place to go if you can’t find RvR anywhere else.
Personally, I’d want to follow the front, be it attacking or defending where appropriate. But I do think it’s entertaining that whilst the marketing men might be wrong that “War is everywhere!”, it’s comforting to know that it will always be at Martyr Square.
