Wolcen: Major Content Patch

If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path.  If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios.  On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off!

ATLAS: Present and Future

We have been at it since day one, that ugly and...well, let's just stick with ugly...launch. Even through the lag muck and server instability, you could read the stars and see the potential.  Right off the bat it was only for the tough, and we barreled through the glitchy log-ins, the shaky starter zones and the wretched "lawless" starting areas and found our way to the rafts.  Some were able to get to our island after 3-4 hours of learning how to tack, zig zag and fight through server borders and with a full stack of human hides, and then some were finally rescued after what seemed like days of being eaten alive by scorpions and crocodiles, only to quickly get used to dying to the cold, the wolves, the alpha horses, the water, the sharks and each other's general noob mistakes.
Yes, with the known developer, we did try to ARK it, or Dark and Light it...hell, we've even tried to Life is Feudal this one....and Atlas is just NOT those games.  Some visuals and sounds are there, but the depth and options and functionality is just SO much more.  What really took the game from just another ARK expansion to, the potential mmo of the decade, was getting out on our first schooner, the SS Skjoldr (video below).  The experience was entirely PvE, but when you have 13 people packed on to a single vessel and the guys repairing the ship are as vital as the helmsman steering and the deckhands manning the sails, it became something I haven't seen in a game since our friday night flights on the Decimator back in SWG.
We have had just a blast learning the game and surviving our island and our neighbors over the past couple weeks.  Though it may appear as if we are well off enough, growing from 30 actives day one, to more than double that now, we absolutely could use more folks interested in living the Atlas life.  Whether you are interested in navigating the high seas, captaining a brigand, farming the tundra, mucking through politics, taming elephants or exploring the massive (30-40 hours of sailing from one end to the other) world, it is all here and we have many members willing to help you get started.
Here is a few screencaps and videos to give you an idea of what we have been up to:

Chargers Issues

Recommended Posts

So... Turner and Rivers both are in the last year of their respective contracts.


The classic game that explains issues with the Chargers would be Chargers vs. Bronco's.


24-0 at the end of the half... against Peyton and the Bronco's. The Chargers were looking clean and sharp.


After half time... 5 turnovers. Rivers throwing to people who weren't there (Meachem I believe it was... ran a route, Rivers expected him to turn, he didn't, and it was almost intercepted. This was after a quick audible, which obviously was misunderstood.)


Ryan Matthews back after his injury (Jackie Battle and Ronnie Brown doing terribly in his absence for the most part), fumbles repeatedly.


Gates' career is mostly done. Year 10, he's not performing.


Floyd, year 7, keeps getting injured.


Rivers... he and Turner can't seem to agree over whether or not they should wear pants. They are seen shouting at each other on the sidelines repeatedly.


What the hell is going to happen with this team?


Either a.) Rivers and Turner get their crap together, seeing as both of their jobs are on the line or b.) next year, they're both gone. Gates retires, Floyd becomes a b string or gets shipped off somewhere, Matthews gets injured and is on IR for a full season... we're going to have one hell of a mess on our hands.


The Chargers aren't exactly a high ticket team, but I had so much hope for these guys, just to see it fall apart (and see them shred my Fantasy games to pieces.... I spent too much on Matthews during my draft this year).


I also live in California, so my choices are Chargers or Raiders? Bleh.


Los Angeles *where I live* was talking about buying the Vikings... looks like that's not going to happen.


Le sigh.


This is why I don't root for a team. I watch teams I enjoy watching. The Ravens (sigh Lewis), the Saints (sigh coaching), the Packers (sigh offensive line and injuries), the Chargers (huge mess!)


Some of the banner teams, the Patriots and Giants, just aren't as fun for me. Dunno why.


Anyone have any thoughts on what will happen in SD?

The Broncos will beat them again, that's what will happen :)


I think some of their troubles were from last year too, they folded down the stretch to let Tebowmania to take 1st place as well....

Hey come on you still have all that College Football :). Not to mention being in one of the best States for High School Football. Being in Oregon I am a huge fan of both High School and College Football. I guess you could always hope for a team starting in LA. There will only be one Don Coryell and Norv Turner definately doesnt rate compared to him. Hopefully this next year they can hire someone who can help turn the team around mentally as well as competitively. I honestly stopped being a Fan after they didnt give Brees a chance to continue leading them.

Rivers can be great, he might need a change of scenery to bring it out again.
