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.

    Personal Comments from Damis:

    The game is similar to Stellaris and other space strategy games in which the game play revolves around space exploration, managing an empire, diplomacy, and space warfare with other space faring civilizations. If you like those types of games, then you should give AD 2460 a try.  It's free and doesn't take up a lot of time.

    The game plays in cycles, in which each cycle takes 2 - 3 Months to complete.  At the end, winners are announced and awards given out.  Seven days later a new cycle begins in which everyone has to start over again.  People are still allowed to play the game during the seven day wait period, which is a good time for new players to learn the game before the new cycle begins.  

    The last cycle just ended on Sunday and the new cycle will begin on  Saturday,  September 15, 2018.  This week would be a good time to jump in and try the game out before the new cycle starts.  It would be great if we could get a bunch of CotP members to play the game and form an alliance in the game.  Let me know if anyone is interested in forming an alliance.

    Playing it right now... It seems like it's a more casual game rather than one you have to watch every second.  Like right now I'm waiting on several tasks to complete and they are all 5+ minutes before completion.  It's a lot of info to throw at you at the beginning, but they do have an in-game tutorial to walk you through the first stage of the game.

    This week is a good time to try the game and see if you like it.  I am just level 3 and still learning the game mechanics, so I am still on the fence about the game.

    We have twelve members in the COTP Alliance now.  I strongly encourage members to try the game out.  It doesn't require a lot of time to play the game and support the chapter.

    About 20 or so cotp members ended up playing the game with us. After a few days in AD2460, we decided to join the Ronin Alliance, which is comprised of friendly, mature and helpful members, as well as being competitive.   So far, the Ronin Allliance has been a good fit for our members.
