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.

ArcheAge Unchained

When the first ArcheAge was released, it was a huge chapter for COTP.  The initial game hype was off the charts, and we had a lot of fun at first... Unfortunately they had some pretty big missteps with the release schedule and some content that was not released as planned (or poorly handled).  A lot of the issues with the game can be attributed to conflicts between the original Korean developer XL Games and the USA publisher Trion Worlds.  Over time the game went F2P and quickly became a Pay2Win game.  Let's just say that the community was unhappy with the direction of the game. 
Enter GamIgo Games!  Last year Gamigo Games purchased Trion Worlds and acquired the ownership rights of ArcheAge.  As a direct result of all the community backlash, they decided to release a completely different version of the game.  By popular demand, ArcheAge Unchained is going to be a completely separate game on its own, and they are eliminating the big P2W problems.  ArcheAge Unchained is being released on October 15th, and it will be a Buy 2 Play model.  You pay the initial game cost up front, and after that there will be no subscriptions or "Premium monthly costs".  The only items for sale in the "cash shop" will be 100% cosmetic, and anything game impacting from the original ArcheAge game was removed.  For example, the game was due to come out the last weekend in September, but Gamigo Games decided to delay the game for more PTS testing.  The big change they were working on was to make all cosmetic items Bound on Pickup / Purchase.  They wanted to avoid anyone buying cosmetic items for RL money and then selling them on the in-game marketplace to earn gold.  Many people in the community saw this as being slightly Pay 2 Win, so it was removed from the game!

Here is a good video talking about the upcoming release of ArcheAge Unchained, and some history of the original game:
 

At this point we don't have any official plans of a COTP Chapter, but we will certainly go that way if we get enough people interested!
If you want more information, here is the full copy / paste of the FAQ from the official ArcheAge Unchained forums:

Maestrom Free to Play on Steam.

Maestrom
Grim fantasy combined with thunderous naval combat in a vibrant, monster-saturated world! Captain an Orc, Dwarf or Human warship and sail the turbulent Abyssal Ocean with online multiplayer, in free-for-all & team based matches.

Be ruthless! Sink other players ships, take their loot and collect their bounty! Be greedy! Maps are littered with floating treasure chests and ships loaded with gold. Be cunning! As the match progresses hungry sea monsters become more aggressive and encroach the safe waters ships can sail in. Ships sailing in 'Dead Waters' for too long end up as monster chow! Be unsinkable! At the end of a match ships can be upgraded and customized with captains, cannons, armor, mates and more! WARSHIPS WIN WITH WITS
Enemy ships can be rammed, grappled and boarded!
Maneuver a ship through the swelling sea and prepare for ramming! The faster the ship is moving the more devastating the collision will be on impact.

Boarding locks both ships in place while crews fight it out. If one crew manages to kill all of the opposing crew, it can spell disaster & sink a ship quickly, sending it to the depths!

ARMOR, AMMO AND POSITIONAL DAMAGE
Each ship has armor on all four sides. The armor sections serve as additional defense toward damage to that side and must be destroyed before the ship's hull can be damaged. Maneuvering to keep your armor between you and your enemy is vital to staying afloat - and seeking the enemy's damaged sides will make you much more lethal in combat!Every cannon has access to three kinds of ammunition and can swap during combat to suit the situation. Ammo is unlimited.
Iron shot blasts chunks out of ship armor and hull. Chain shot is used to shred enemy sails and cripple a ship’s speed. Grapeshot slaughters enemy crew and makes ships easier to board. LURKING THE DEEP
Like the ocean they reside in, sea monsters are titanic forces of nature. They stalk unwary captains and can devour a ship whole. Like this Murkwater Thrasher.

FREE-TO-PLAY DEFINITION FOR MAELSTROM:
As Free-to-Play definitions vary with games we want to define it clearly so players know what they can expect: All gameplay and progress can be unlocked by playing the game for free. No additional purchases are needed to enjoy the game to its fullest extent. There are no ways to purchase a competitive advantage in game. Players must play the game to progress & become more powerful. There are no ways to purchase a top tier ship with a powerful crew, it must be earned by playing the game. Players can however, accelerate progression with boosts. Gold is in-game currency and earned by playing the game. Gunpowder is premium currency & the only item sold for cash in-game. It is used to buy all of the premium items in the store such as the battle pass, cosmetics, boosters & bundles. Gunpowder can also be earned for free via the Battle Pass, completing quests & checking the store. Battle Passes unlock cosmetics, gold or gunpowder & there is a premium track that unlocks additional rewards for gunpowder. Future content will be added through seasonal Battle Passes, events or content drops. There are no loot boxes. All Items are directly purchasable in the store. https://store.steampowered.com/app/764050/Maelstrom/

Can't afford new system for gaming, then I might have a solution

Recommended Posts

For those that can't afford a new computer, but the current one you have isn't meeting up to your demands try this on.
This is not an advertisement this is something I want to share with all CotP users that are not in the best of Financial savings for a new system.

$35.00 per month (-10.00 with my discount code) you can have a system that is WELL worth your money. So just some insight, all you need is the internet and a computer and their systems will take the load off.

Each system is its own - no one else will be able to use it 

(What you get to use on the other side)
CPU: INTEL XEON 8 cores dedicated threads
GPU NVIDIA GTX 1080 equivalent
STORAGE 256GB Secured
Memory 12GB DDR4

Each time the technology upgrades so do your system with no additional cost. 
PROMOTION CODE: CHRUMXNN

Works on Laptops MAC or OS
Tablets 
Phones
Just pick up where you left off at... Pretty cool

So how exactly does this work, I mean, i've heard about it a fair bit, but now you've got me curious because I can only assume there'd be a fair bit of lag from the distancing/it being cloud-based (I ASSUME.)

$35 x 12 = $350+$70 = $420 a year, $1260 for 3 years.

HIGH END upgrade kit for Motherboard, CPU, and Ram = $750. - Good for 3 years or more.
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3821024&Description=upgrade kit

MID Grade upgrade runs about $300 for an I7, $100 for a MB, and $200 for 16gb 3200 Ram = $600.
  CHip prices will come down a bit in June as the global CPU shortage will wane a bit.

With one upgrade kit your system is good for another 3 years at least, equal to $1260 bucks for 3 years of their rental service.
In between those three years, you can upgrade your Graphics card - which is what most people need but is prohibitively expensive right now. ($800)

Over the long run, you do better if you spend the time to shop, reserve purchases for holiday sales, and do your homework.
Also, you have zero guarantee that these services are not reading your data and selling it - like all these services either do, or will do later when they need more money.

Pay yourself, buy your own computer upgrades, use a credit card, wait for a sale, and space out the purchases, either way, you do better yourself, and you know and own your own gear.
