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.

    A YouTube streamer named "Kanon" has put together some really solid guides for launch week in ArcheAge Unchained. I would highly recommend you check these out (videos below). However, here is the "TLDR" if you don't want to watch the first video:

    @VoltariIt's pretty awesome so far. I have my "Fury Ranger" up to level 50, and my mage character should be up there soon. I've completed the storyline, and the endgame content seems decent so far. I've been playing each night for the last two weeks, and the game is definitely still fun for me. I think it has a lot of long-term potential, but I wonder how fast the players will burn through the initial content. Hopefully they can finish fixing the bugs from the release version of the game, and start working on "what's next".

    I am reading on Facebook that our dear friend Leah has passed. Her son writes on FB a few hours ago: "11:30am today my mother, Joni Bubluski passed away under hospice care while in her sleep. Funeral details to follow. She survived 2 1/2 years with stage 4 lung cancer, which is a bit longer than expected."

    It appears the queue number approximately equates to minuets x 10. So if you "shift the decimal' one spot to the left you get estimated remaining minutes. So, 119 approximates 11.9 minutes .. and 2435 approximates to 243.5 or 4 hours [ 243.5 / 60 = 4.05 ] This seems to wok for me and I can plan accordingly.

    When the first ArcheAge was released, it was a huge chapter for COTP. The initial game hype was off the charts, and we had a lot of fun at first... Unfortunately they had some pretty big missteps with the release schedule and some content that was not released as planned (or poorly handled). A lot of the issues with the game can be attributed to conflicts between the original Korean developer XL Games and the USA publisher Trion Worlds. Over time the game went F2P and quickly became a Pay2Win game. Let's just say that the community was unhappy with the direction of the game. Enter GamIgo Games! Last year Gamigo Games purchased Trion Worlds and acquired the ownership rights of ArcheAge. As a direct result of all the community backlash, they decided to release a completely different version of the game. By popular demand, ArcheAge Unchained is going to be a completely separate game on its own, and they are eliminating the big P2W problems. ArcheAge Unchained is being released on October 15th, and it will be a Buy 2 Play model. You pay the initial game cost up front, and after that there will be no subscriptions or "Premium monthly costs". The only items for sale in the "cash shop" will be 100% cosmetic, and anything game impacting from the original ArcheAge game was removed. For example, the game was due to come out the last weekend in September, but Gamigo Games decided to delay the game for more PTS testing. The big change they were working on was to make all cosmetic items Bound on Pickup / Purchase. They wanted to avoid anyone buying cosmetic items for RL money and then selling them on the in-game marketplace to earn gold. Many people in the community saw this as being slightly Pay 2 Win, so it was removed from the game! Here is a good video talking about the upcoming release of ArcheAge Unchained, and some history of the original game: At this point we don't have any official plans of a COTP Chapter, but we will certainly go that way if we get enough people interested! If you want more information, here is the full copy / paste of the FAQ from the official ArcheAge Unchained forums:

    This video explains what I was trying ( and failing ) to explain in Discord voice last night. Basically you get infinite rolls to reroll stats on your quest gear, limited only buy silver and labor. The catalyst stones mentioned in the video are renamed on Unchained as some kind of evenstone, Adventure or Adventurers iirc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWbl-4U1FH8

    Looking through pictures from our past ArcheAge chapter has brought back a lot of fond memories of the fun and camaraderie that we all shared in that chapter. We really had a fantastic group of a people in that chapter. Games come and go, but the friendships that we forge and the good times that we share are everlasting. After looking at the pictures and reading about the new changes for ArcheAge Unchained, I must admit that I am pretty excited to jump back into the game with everyone.

    I really hesitated at re-subbing into WoW Classic, after playing since beta and the retail version just not doing it for me... But then I had an epiphany. I really needed this, for WoW to be re-released in the classic form... I realized that I had lost interest in WoW retail a while ago, it is just missing the feel of adventure and more than that, friendly people that you meet... I have already met so many really nice folks, where in retail that, to me, is missing. I am truly having a blast, adventuring around the world and going alt bananas again. hehe. It almost feels like, something that was missing, has been restored. I really hope that they will continue to develop this version and not make is the same as it is in retail... Cheers Grim

    My fondest memory of her is still hunting around on the DAoC frontier. She was utterly fearless, going everywhere. In her memory, I've made a ranger in guild wars 2 named "Leah Kelle" so her name is still in the game she and I played for so long. -Jeff

    Well said Grim. 🙁 We have known for a while she was fighting that stupid cancer. Every post her son put with her, they were smiling and having a great time. It's been an honor to share time with someone that cares so much for others. I am honored to have called her my friend too! I'll have a toast in her honor. 🙋‍♂️ Monty

    I am truly saddened by this, I had been thinking about her on a regular basis, hoping for remission... She was a true warrior and fought until the end. Our community is less, in her passing. She will be greatly missed. She was the rock of sanity among a sea of strong opinionated people, myself included. I believe that she is in a better place now, no longer having to struggle with this daemon that had been dogging her for so many years. I pray for her son, who has now lost both parents and wish him peace. I am honored to have called her my friend! Cheers Grim

    Seems pretty fair, with a few things that are old news. Plenty of room to build. New colonies servers are better. Vitamins are less important. Ships differ greatly in handling. AI is no longer expensive. Added quests for more PVE Powerstones and Fountain of youth are on the same islands, the mobs there and tactics to complete them are pretty lame.

    This is the official COTP Sentry Exam. Please note that this is a timed quiz and it is not "open book". The quiz system is designed in such a way that you will automatically fail if you switch windows / tabs to look up an answer somewhere. With that being said; make sure to read the COTP Guild Charter before taking this exam. Many of the answers to these questions can be found in the Charter. Please reach out to your COTP chapter leader if you have any questions.
