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:

Kenshi 1.0 Released

It is generally a rarity that finds a single player game a feature of CotP articles, however, over recent months this game has entered my personal top five games of all-time and has passed my hourly steam totals for Mount & Blade, Fallout 4 and Skyrim in the process.  What the....yeah, I know.
So many titles over the years have claimed that it allows its players to "win" the game "their way" in an "open sandbox" environment.  Well, we cannot get the time back that we spent realizing that those developers were still significantly limited in the scope of what any individual's personal definition of in-game "freedom" actually means.  For me, M&B and SWG came close.  Unfortunately, both those games (or their EMU reboot) are either approaching or have surpassed the ten year mark of their seemingly eternal impending latest release. Enter Kenshi.
Freedom is a fun word in Kenshi...yes, you have the freedom to stay solo, group up with a squad, make a vegetable farm, join a faction, enslave a faction, slay the champion, be the richest hermit, recruit an army of robots or build the great city....blah blah, boring.  Now, the freedom to fail in the most unique form possible...that is the true gem in this game.  I will give you just the one example:
My squad is epic, I will tame the badlands and establish a civilized trading outpost...plan = awesome.  Headed for the abandoned fishing outpost.  Acid rain, not fun...put up tent, survived.  Reached fishing village, it is not a fishing village.  Really freaky "skin" people pour out of all the village buildings.  We put up a good fight but were overwhelmed.  One by one, my squad members were....stolen.  Knocked out, picked up and taken to some of the village huts.  What is going on here?  Then the screams.  Agonizing screams from my captured squad members.  No idea.  I am the last one to go down.  KO'd, picked up, taken to a nearby hut....
I died from blood loss.....after I was put into a grinder that peeled my skin off.
https://store.steampowered.com/app/233860/Kenshi/
 
WHAT IS KENSHI?
Kenshi is a single player sandbox PC game set in a vast and atmospheric ‘Sword-Punk’ style open world. With a mix of RPG elements, squad-based control and city-building features, gameplay is completely free-roaming and open: enjoy the freedom and potential to do whatever you want.
Set in an unrelenting world of bloodthirsty cannibals, starving bandits, brutal slavers and wild beasts, survival alone is a grueling struggle… You are not the chosen one. You’re not great and powerful. You don’t have more ‘hitpoints’ than everyone else. You are not the center of the universe, and you are not special. Unless you work for it.
Character Customization 
Edit your characters, build up their strengths and watch them endure and grow. Train Your Skills in Robotics, Thievery, Engineering, Medicine, Weapon Smithing and more!
Squad-Based Control
Play with one character or control a whole team; an army, even. Combat is Real-Time Strategy style with a choice of ranged and melee fighting styles
Build Your Base
Create and run your own city, manage an empire or simply wander the lands as a lone drifter. Research upgrades such as industry tech, weaponry crafting and trade goods
Wounds Affect Gameplay
Complex medical system where injured characters limp, crawl, bleed to death or pass out from starvation. Stem blood loss to avoid predators and replace lost limbs with robotic prosthetics
Open-ended Gameplay
An original sandbox world. Lay siege as a warlord or make your riches as a trader… There are endless game style possibilities and the world will never stop moving
Train hard
There is no level-scaling, the world does not level up along with you. At the start of the game almost everyone will be stronger than you and you’ll have to use your cunning to survive
Survive
Escape capture from deadly slavers & cannibal prisons, rescue your squad mates from grisly death and get them all home alive
Start A Faction
Keep to yourself, form an alliance or oppose other factions and territories of the world… good or bad

Drayvn ARK cluster updated with Extinction

The ARK: Extinction map has been added to Drayvn's Server Cluster.
The Goal:
Link multiple maps on one server so that players can truly enjoy everything the game offers. You can live on the Island and still explore the dungeons on Extinction while using the dragon you got from scorched and the spelunking tools you got from Aberration.
Note: This is a private server cluster created by Drayvn and is open to COTP members who are able to conduct themselves in a mature manner.  
Note II:  These servers are not modded in order to provide some difficulty to those who can handle it.
Maps currently in cluster:

  1. Earlier
  2. Looking for guild invite. Was member of COTP during "Vanguard: Saga of Heroes" many years ago. Have alliance characters (palladin and DK) on Dalaran server: Tarsïer (pally) and Domminatrïx.
  3. Hi, I just found this on FB today. I don't see this on their YT channel. I assume it will become available later on YT. For now, it's on FB.
  4. Awesome! The link worked. Thanks for the info!
  5. Regarding Horde, we're not super organized, but we have a few people playing Horde on Ysera-Durotan, but the main guild is Alliance (on Dalaran - most of the Horde characters on Ysera-Durotan are alts of the Alliance players). With the way communities work now, it doesn't matter what realm you're on as far as grouping goes (up until Mythics, I believe). You can join the CotP communities here. Sometimes the first click brings you back to the same page, but it should bring you to a page with a code to cut and paste into the Guild and Communities tab (J) in game.
  6. Hey everyone, I was an active member back in wrath and have recently returned to the game. I am interesting in getting into mythic dungeons and casual raiding. I am currently playing horde on a distant server but would be willing to swap for the community. So I guess I would really just like to determine how active the guild is and see if I could get an invite before deciding to spend the money to change realm / faction. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
  7. OMG bobby is playing WoW?! jk. welcome. I am also giving it a go. Am liking it so far. Just a tip. Shadow priest = balance sage/madness sorc for playstyle. :D.
  8. I started back up after a long hiatus from the game. Setting up the UI to my liking took some time. Initially, the UI was a little too small for my eyes on my large 3440x1440 monitor. Things looked great. But the buttons, text, etc, was too small. This weekend I re-learned that you can scale the UI to make it larger. It's under ESC/Settings/Advanced ( I think that's where it is, I'm at work trying to remember ). There are several other settings I had to experiment with the UI to get it to my liking. Starting with a brand new level 1 character helped a lot with making things easier and not too overwhelming. The game seems to make things pretty easy when first starting out. I think my first character death occurred when I was in the high teens or low 20's a few days ago. I first picked a warrior to play when I started back up. Did a few levels. Then started a Priest. For that sounded funner for my to play. Also, I was thinking ahead with what I'd enjoy playing in a group. I mostly play support (healer) in Overwatch. So it seemed like playing a helaer (Priest) in WoW would be fun for me too. And it is! I have a 110 character boost from buying BFA. But I'm holding off on using that for the time being. Since I'm enjoying playing with my new low level characters. Feel free to message me in game, or out, if you have any questions.
  9. So I''ve finally been talked into trying WoW for the first time. I'm coming from SWTOR so I at least have some MMO experience, but any and all help would be appreciated. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing lol
  10. It used to be that if you used a boost on a level 60+ character, your professions would be increased as well, so many people would level up to 60 before using the boost, but now each expansion has a different leveling track for professions and the boost no longer increases the professions, so there's no incentive to level up. Basically, use the boost on whichever character you want to be your main (or create a brand new character as a level 110 character). The Dwarf starter area doesn't take too long, so it's not like it would be a waste of time to go through it before using the boost.
  11. Hi, I picked up BFA and resubbed earlier this week. I'm enjoying starting with a new level 1 toon and relearning the game. I have a level 8 warrior and level 15 priest. Both are dwarves. And this is the first time I've played in the beginning Dwarf zones. So that all seems new and fresh to me. I have a level 110 boost with the BFA purchase. When should I use the level 110 boost?
  12. We have a chapter on Dalaran, and a Community set up to include folks who arn't. All the info is on discord, yall should join us =D
  13. Hellz to the yeah. Wife and I leveling from 1 on a fresh server as dual feral druid. Horde scrubs don't even know what's happening.

  15. What is a Jarl anyway? Sounds like some kind of wild hog
  16. Ok, I see no one knows this here, I'll ask somewhere else
  17. Did you get a guild invite yet? Are you on Dalaran server or Durotan server? What is the name of the toon you are playing?
  18. Does anyone know the current population of COTP? (active members)
  19. WOOHOO! That's great Mad! I'll blow the dust off my mage Frostybob (lvl 60) and spend some time tuning up my mage skills and do dungeons to level up. You have saved me from having to finish leveling a mage on the Dalaran server with those Alliance nuts! They talk down to Horde there the same way we talk down to Alliance on our server. I have been tempted to harass them on their server but thought maybe that would be unwise, haha
  20. Battle for Azeroth, the latest World of Warcraft expansion, launches today! The expansion focuses on faction warfare - Alliance vs Horde - with War Mode enabling World PVP among a number of other new features, continents and gameplay. Check out the main site and the wowhead guide for more information on the expansion. The main guild is Alliance on Dalaran and there is a Horde alt guild on Durotan and the placeholder Alliance guild remains on Ysera. Purchase of the expansion gives a level 110 character boost, so you can pick your character and jump in with us right away. Even if you have characters on other realms, the new communities feature allows faction wide chat. Check out our community information page. The WoW Chapter is also active on Discord. If you are planning on joining us, come chat with us there. See you in Azeroth!
  21. Hi! Just joined, just need a guild invite in game. Thanks! Great to be here!
  22. There will be a pre launch chapter meeting August 9th @ 9pm Eastern. Tentative itinerary, Welcome new members to the chapter, Explain and promote the Community Feature, Discuss Raiding situation for BfA I encourage everyone to attend, members who are already within the chapter and those who are interested in picking up the game for BfA. If you want to raid and are unable to attend, please send me a private message and I can bring you up to speed.
