CotP and Fallout 76

Fallout 76's full release date was announced at Bethesda's E3 conference, and it's coming this year on November 14th, 2018 on PC
Now, please feel free to rewind your gaming memory to June, 2015...
ARK: Survival Evolved's early release showed up on Steam, and surprised the heck out of most CotP members, including myself.  Despite the server stability and networking issues, the game was quite a hit with CotP members and certainly made a lasting impact on this community.
While Fallout 76 is not sneaking up on anyone who doesn't live under a rock, I am personally hoping for another CotP adventure filled with good times akin to our experience in the early days of ARK's early release.  I hope to meet plenty of CotP gamers who I haven't had the opportunity to game with in the past, and potentially add a few new names to my eternal (short)  list of people I generally pretend to like.  Similar to ARK, I also expect we will have enough participation to garner some internal competition....(hopefully a change from the standard Throne's team vs Damis' team we generally end up in).
We do not have any plans for an official CotP group in the current BETA, however, as always, we will rely on our established team of early testers to give us a head start on how the game plays and where the early focus needs to be.
The group forum is up and open to whomever would like to join in on the discussions and plans.

New Ark Expansion!

If you haven't already seen it, the new Ark expansion was released yesterday.  The new expansion, "Extinction", takes the players back to Earth to find a ravaged homeworld with all sorts of new creatures and challenges.  It seems like they've taken some popular mod content and created some massive "Titans" that function as world bosses throughout the new map. 
The new launch trailer: 
 
COTP does not have an "official" server right now.  Currently Cecil and I run a private server for any COTP members that want to join.  Hit me up via PM if you would like to give it a try!  We are working with our hosting company to get the new expansion server up today.
Here is the official content notes from the Steam page:

MapleStory 2 Chapter Created.

October 6th, Covenant of the Phoenix created a new chapter in MapleStory 2 on the North America East server.  MapleStory 2 will officially launch on October 10th, but people can start playing the game now if they bought a Head Start account. 
MapleStory 2 is a new MMORPG set in a colorful 3D block universe. Vastly different than the original game, MapleStory 2 will allow players to build their own worlds, levels, and share them with each other. The familiar Action RPG combat is back, but this time in a 3D isometric angle.
MapleStory 2 takes place before the events of MapleStory, and the rise of the Black Mage. The origin of the world's life, time, and space are kept in balance through the actions of three Sages, who live in Lapenta. Dark forces, however, broke the balance and put the world in crisis.

Star Wars Galaxies Emulator Server.

Star Wars Galaxies is a sandbox MMO set in the Star Wars universe shortly after the destruction of the first Deathstar above Yavin IV.  Star Wars Galaxies officially closed on 15th December 2011.  SWGEmu aims to emulate Star Wars Galaxies in it's Pre-CU era, version 14.1. The current game is stable, and all the classes are working, such as the creature handler, droid engineer and Jedi. 
We have members playing on the Basilisk server which has a large and active community base.  We have established a city on Dantooine and have entertainers and doctors available to buff members.
Some of the CotP members have started doing the Jedi Village quests on their way to becoming a Jedi.  Note, this the pre-nge Jedi, which requires players to put in time and effort to actually earn something great.  I was one of a handful of Jedi in our old CotP guild on Bloodfin in the original game and I can personally attest that becoming a Jedi was the proudest moment in my gaming history.  It took Months of hard work, but when I finally crafted and activated my light saber, it sent chills down my back.  No other game has ever given me that sort of satisfaction.  
The emu server does not have Jump to Lightspeed (JTL) working yet, but they do have shipwrights in place.  When JTL finally gets rolled out, I expect there will be a surge of veterans players returning to the game. 
Members interested in trying out the game or would like more information should contact Aveno in discord.

    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.
