i'm on now but it won't connect to the servers at all. i'll keep trying for a bit and if it fails i'll give it a break and try again in an hour or so. regardless of if it starts or not, i'll start the thread today so it is reserved and you can start adding to the guide.
just in case i can get spartacus, i took the liberty to draft out the shell of the guide/roadmap. i was thinking i would open the thread with the roadmap then you reserve ~3 posts for the guide and take it from there. this is the draft of the roadmap that is very un-finished and has basically no info as of yet, but the first line of the introduction has made me a proud little boy, so i'm sharing
i did the basic achievement list too, but i'll PM that to you so it saves you the time of having to do it
