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!

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.

NA Servers - Tyrenos or Wynn

Recommended Posts

There will be two servers for NA when ArcheAge Unchained launches (Tyrenos and Wynn). Of course there's no way of knowing which one will be better in the long run, so it might be a good idea to select one and place it in the announcement banner (and on facebook) so members will be directed to the right place once the game launches.

Since character name reservation is on Saturday the 12th I wonder if we need to decide before then.  Assuming the above named servers will be up for this character reservation.

In the meeting @Elric mentioned taking the top or first server on the list.  I think this was for server popularity and activity in the long run.  I'm game for another meeting to clarify.

 

P.S. Just heard from Elric, Wynn is the server chosen.

We just need everyone to be flexible when it comes to picking a server.  Nothing is set in stone until the actual launch day.  This is how we have always managed it.  I would suggest that people try to reserve their names on all servers.

We will schedule two meetings before launch.

Oh that's cool, I didn't know reserving across all servers was an option.

They actually do not allow that.  You are limited to a max of 1 character per server, and only on 2 servers.  Today when the name reservation system went live, we all reserved our characters on Wynn primarily, and then Tyrenos as a backup.

Kind of splitting hairs there.  You are allowed to save 1 character name on two servers which is what i basically suggested.  It's only an issue if you have multiple names you are trying to save.  Personally, I don't sweat the name reservation anymore, I have a bunch that I can fall back on.

Hope everyone got their names in. Character creation is locked on Wynn and Tyrenos because those servers are now full.

I created two on Wynn first before realizing I couldn't create two characters on both Wynn and Tyrenos. ;)

I couldn't get in until about 40 minutes in there but someone already claimed October, rip.

Gonna go with Morningstar and Phoebus.

Keep in mind that the only thing set in stone is your character's race and name: you can go back and edit your character's gender and looks.

When the game launches, we will have to hunt down this October imposture and kill him repeatedly.  :elf:

Those are really cool names, though. Grats on snagging them.

I seem to be in the minority here, but I never use my handle as my character name, unless it's an account-wide thing (like Destiny 2, for example).

My characters on Archeage are Skayde and Garidan. Skayde's pretty much my go-to name for a tough female character (in this case, Warborn) and Garidan was the name of an old Human Ranger/Rogue D&D character of mine. They're not exactly on the list of most-desired names, but it didn't stop me from staying up till 3am to snag them. :D

Restrictions on character creation on both Wynn and Tyrenos at the moment.  Restrictions listed as N, E, D, H, F, W.  Guess all races are locked atm.  Third server, Denisrious is open for all races.

They're going to unlock the full servers before launch, so if you couldn't make characters on Wynn, you'll be able to on Sunday and Monday. They locked them to make sure there was a decent distribution of players:

 

"To ensure that there are additional chances to reserve characters on ALL NA servers (both factions), we will open reservations again without restrictions in place (at least initially) on: Sunday Oct 13th at 10:00am PDT and again on Monday Oct 14th at 10:00am PDT.
These locks and restrictions are required to ensure population evenly distributes across available servers, and most importantly to mitigate extremely lengthy login queues at release."

I made one character on Denisrious and will make one on Wynn when it opens up.

Yep, every day try to log on from 10-11am PDT.  That is when it will be unlocked for sure. ;)
