Wolcen - Full Release!

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is going into full release on Feb 13th, 2020!  I've been following this ARPG since it was first Kickstarted way back in 2015.  I've played it once or twice throughout the development process... Some Alpha, some Beta.  Overall it has come along very nicely, and I have high hopes for the future of this game.  This game has been discussed as once of the top games that will be pit against Diablo IV for the next generation of ARPG's on the market.  I know Cecil and I will be playing for sure.  Come join us in-game and on Discord!

Created by hardcore gamers, Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in a dark fantasy world. With a focus on visceral action combat, powerful items and deep character customization, Path of Exile is completely free and will never be pay-to-win.

Freedom. Power. Revenge.
Banished for your misdeeds to the dark, brutal world of Wraeclast, you play as the Duelist, Witch, Ranger, Templar, Marauder, Shadow or the Scion class. From forsaken shores through to the ruined city of Sarn, explore Wraeclast and uncover the ancient secrets waiting for you.
Unlimited Character Customization
Create and customize hundreds of unique skill combinations from tradable itemized gems and our gigantic passive skill tree. Combine skill gems, support gems and trigger gems to create your own unique combination of power, defense and destruction.
Deadly Missions
The Forsaken Masters each have their own style of mission and each of these missions has many variations.

All of the Missions and their variations can occur anywhere in the game, including within end-game Maps.
Dressed to Kill

Masters residing in your Hideout offer you daily Missions and train you in advanced crafting options.

Smite - Free To Play.

Smite is a 3D fantasy MOBA where players take on the role of mythological gods and battle in team-based arenas. Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE puts you directly onto the battlefield with a third-person action viewpoint. From blind-side ambushes to aimed shots, a new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits.  Become a legend of myth, enter the Battleground of the Gods, and play FREE now!

Game Modes:
Conquest – the main 5v5 game mode. Features three lanes and a jungle area filled with neutral monsters. Arena – a 5v5 game mode with an open battle area rather than lanes. Each team begins with 500 points and must reduce the other side's to zero by killing heroes, minions, and escorting allied minions to portals. Joust – a 3v3 game mode with a single lane which otherwise plays like Conquest mode. Joust can also be played 1v1. Assault – similar to ARAM (All Random, All Mid) in LoL, players are assigned a random God and fight on a map with a single lane. Siege – a faster version of Conquest. Siege mode consists of only two lanes and contains a special Siege Juggernaut minion that deals extra damage to structures.
Never played a battle arena before? Don’t worry. Auto-buy, auto-level, and the deathmatch-like Arena mode let you jump right into divine MOBA action. Aspiring pro? Top the ladders, join a competitive team, and you too could be playing at the SMITE World Championship.

Recommended Posts

I think I'll be playing on another server real soon. The other 2 have good population and one has a small queue

I know the Que sucks, but it will go down after a little while but will hopefully leave us with a healthy population.

I have a 205 minute queue and i'm 65th in line. :( I'm going to shower. lol.

 

I'll be making my Baraka Mystic. Look for Nahor.

 

I'll probably be reserving names for other toons too.

Down to 11 minutes 217 in line so add a little time to that 97 mins as it is not going faster like before but taking longer.:(

It should get better after headstart is done since those who used buddy code and didn't purchase wont be able to play anymore.

 

 

That being said, if the queues are still massive after headstart and they open a new pvp server, I'll probably go there.

 

 

As it stands now, I may or may not actually get to play tonight and even if I do, I wont even be on long enough to use up all the "bonus xp time" I'm getting for spending all this time in the queue.

Guys i know we all hate Q's. It sucks having to wait. But don't forget that this isn't a bad thing to have at the start. Im sure all the rift people that started that game will agree that it is frustrating at first but is best at the end. Having the Q means we have a full server, which when people start leaving the game our server will stay alive. I hate to say people will leave the game but that's how game launch's work. So im sorry we all have to wait in a Q but trust me it is a good thing in disguise.

I agree with Skywise and Xugrel above... The queue is no fun, but it will end up being worth it when your server is still going strong while the smaller ones die out. :drinks:

While I agree with all of you, I still want to whine and complain about the queues!!!

They are opening a new pvp server and allowing free transfers for a little while.

 

This should help with the queues some, as long as the majority of the server doesn't leave!

Got a guy to level 12 on Saturday but I was unable to play Sunday because of the crazy queue times.

 

I tried playing GW2 while waiting, but it was choppy, I wish just sitting in the queue didn't do that but it does. Rather than waste 2 hours of my valuable weekend gaming time I just played GW2 beta.

 

Hope to get in tonight to continue leveling. The game is a lot more fun than I expected and the combat really works well in PvP.

I am sure everything will be different by the time it comes back up I can almost bet they will not lock out any servers from the people tomorrow so we shall all wait and see what happens. Heck I was one of the people in Rift waiting 4+ hours that what turned me off on it but it wasn't have as fun as Tera so to me the wait is worth it.

Just had to give props to Tera. They handled the Q like I've never seen before. I thought I wouldn't be playing on our server or a month or so.
