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:

    Rend: COTP Victory!

    It's official, COTP and it's allies on "NA West - Muspelheim" have won the first round of our Rend server!  Between COTP, our Illegitimus allies, and some randoms on our faction team - we crushed the opposition on our server.  By the last week the other two factions had gone into defensive mode because there was really no way for them to catch up to our momentum! ;)

    Last night following the final Reckoning of the server, our characters "ascended" and the server was reset for round 2.  Tonight everyone on the server started from scratch, but as we had won the previous night we received more Ascension points that our opponents.  This gives us a slight edge as we face off against the other two factions again.

    This time around we will try some different defensive building tactics, some different character specs, and new priorities for our faction research.  Hopefully we can bring home another win!  Come join us for some PvP / PvE action!

    So, does this cycle repeat until the one faction is OP and the other two factions just quit the game?   Sounds counter intuitive.  The winners should get praise and only cosmetic trophies and trinkets to maintain to some form of faction balance.  Just my thinking.

    By the way.  Grats!

    No, not at all.  Yes, the winning side gets more bonus Ascension points than the opponents, but that doesn't mean they get none.  I don't know if we have confirmed this yet, but I believe the winners get 100% bonus of what they earned in the previous round.  The other two sides only get 50 or 75%.  Either way, these are open servers, which means that people are constantly coming and going.  You may have new players that join a faction throughout the servers life.  With each round the people can always switch sides as well.  For example, in this round there were 3 random players (non-COTP or Illegitimus) that changed from our faction (Order) over to a competitor faction (Conclave).  There will always be some shuffling of players, advantageous teams, etc.

    Just a heads up.

    After winning our server....we started strong on the newly reset server, however, after 48 hours, we noticed only a few of our enemies showed up for round 2.  After the last few of them quit, we were left with no competition.

    For now, we have moved to a new server, NA West - Dragonfall.  We are now in the Revenant faction.  Server is 5 days old and has been among the 5 most populated servers since the game launched.

    We will be able to combine our ascendancy points with a forthcoming game update.
