ArcheAge Unchained

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:

Fractured MMO

Fractured is an open-world fantasy sandbox MMORPG which blends action combat with fully interactive environments, appealing equally to lovers of competitive and cooperative gameplay. Jump right into the fray from day one. Defeat your enemies with skill and wit, not equipment or level. Gather resources, craft, trade and venture into legendary travels as a solitary hero, or start a settlement with your guild and grow it into the next empire. A true sandbox MMORPG, Fractured lets players pursue the gameplay they enjoy, create the type of character they enjoy, and focus on doing what they enjoy. 
Fractured Key Features
Unique And Dynamic Setting – Explore the universe of Fractured, which is spread across three planets – Arboreus, Syndesia, and Tartaros. Travel is an important part of the game experience; unlike many traditional MMORPGS, players must find a way to survive as they traverse the worlds. In addition, eclipses, unique PvE events, have a huge impact on the lives of demons and humans. The state of the universe, and even the position of planets, matters!
Race Is More Than Cosmetic – The race you belong to has an actual impact on game mechanics, from the type of society you live in to the ways you can interact with other players. Choose a human and live in – or at odds with – a feudal society. Be a beastman, and live in harmony with nature. Or, choose a demon, and slake your thirst for blood and revenge!
Crafting That Matters – Finding a broadsword in the corpse of a rat sounds a little unlikely? Forget about old RPG clichés and enter a world where every item is crafted by players. Exploit the uneven distribution of resources to get high profits when trading at faraway markets – but make sure you reach your destination alive!
Get Into The Action – You do not need to grind zombies for 80 hours or reach some level limit before you can join your friends on adventures. In Fractured, you can take part in any content from the first day in the game! The Knowledge system offers power and flexibility, allowing players to develop exactly the character they wish to play.
Action Combat Evolved – Fractured melds the combat style you’ve loved in single-player Action RPGs with a complex sandbox universe. Learn to aim, dodge and master over 400 abilities and 40 unique status effects: only your skills and tactics will lead you to victory! The environment is fully interactive, and can be used to give you an edge in your adventures.

Maestrom Free to Play on Steam.

Maestrom
Grim fantasy combined with thunderous naval combat in a vibrant, monster-saturated world! Captain an Orc, Dwarf or Human warship and sail the turbulent Abyssal Ocean with online multiplayer, in free-for-all & team based matches.

Be ruthless! Sink other players ships, take their loot and collect their bounty! Be greedy! Maps are littered with floating treasure chests and ships loaded with gold. Be cunning! As the match progresses hungry sea monsters become more aggressive and encroach the safe waters ships can sail in. Ships sailing in 'Dead Waters' for too long end up as monster chow! Be unsinkable! At the end of a match ships can be upgraded and customized with captains, cannons, armor, mates and more! WARSHIPS WIN WITH WITS
Enemy ships can be rammed, grappled and boarded!
Maneuver a ship through the swelling sea and prepare for ramming! The faster the ship is moving the more devastating the collision will be on impact.

Boarding locks both ships in place while crews fight it out. If one crew manages to kill all of the opposing crew, it can spell disaster & sink a ship quickly, sending it to the depths!

ARMOR, AMMO AND POSITIONAL DAMAGE
Each ship has armor on all four sides. The armor sections serve as additional defense toward damage to that side and must be destroyed before the ship's hull can be damaged. Maneuvering to keep your armor between you and your enemy is vital to staying afloat - and seeking the enemy's damaged sides will make you much more lethal in combat!Every cannon has access to three kinds of ammunition and can swap during combat to suit the situation. Ammo is unlimited.
Iron shot blasts chunks out of ship armor and hull. Chain shot is used to shred enemy sails and cripple a ship’s speed. Grapeshot slaughters enemy crew and makes ships easier to board. LURKING THE DEEP
Like the ocean they reside in, sea monsters are titanic forces of nature. They stalk unwary captains and can devour a ship whole. Like this Murkwater Thrasher.

FREE-TO-PLAY DEFINITION FOR MAELSTROM:
As Free-to-Play definitions vary with games we want to define it clearly so players know what they can expect: All gameplay and progress can be unlocked by playing the game for free. No additional purchases are needed to enjoy the game to its fullest extent. There are no ways to purchase a competitive advantage in game. Players must play the game to progress & become more powerful. There are no ways to purchase a top tier ship with a powerful crew, it must be earned by playing the game. Players can however, accelerate progression with boosts. Gold is in-game currency and earned by playing the game. Gunpowder is premium currency & the only item sold for cash in-game. It is used to buy all of the premium items in the store such as the battle pass, cosmetics, boosters & bundles. Gunpowder can also be earned for free via the Battle Pass, completing quests & checking the store. Battle Passes unlock cosmetics, gold or gunpowder & there is a premium track that unlocks additional rewards for gunpowder. Future content will be added through seasonal Battle Passes, events or content drops. There are no loot boxes. All Items are directly purchasable in the store. https://store.steampowered.com/app/764050/Maelstrom/

ESO: SCALEBREAKER DLC GAME PACK

The Scalebreaker DLC game pack brings two new Season of the Dragon dungeons, expanding upon the events of both Wrathstone and Elsweyr. The Dragons are free from the Halls of Colossus, and now you must deal with the fallout of their release. While these stories are part of the year-long saga, you can enjoy both without having completed either of the year’s earlier content—enjoy!
Lair of Maarselok
For centuries, Maarselok slept deep in the mountains between Elsweyr and Grahtwood. However, upon the opening of the Halls of Colossus, this monstrous Dragon has awoken, and now threatens to spread his corruption into the domain of the Wood Elves. Only with the help of the Warlock Carindon and the forest spirit Selene can you defeat this terrifying new Dragon!

Hunt the great Dragon Maarselok!
Moongrave Fane
Hidden within a fallen Khajiiti temple, the vampires of the Hollowfang prepare to perform a terrible ritual. Joined by the former Dragonguard Grundwulf, they wish to drain the blood from a captured Dragon! You and your team must fight your way into the fallen ruin and put a stop to their plan before it’s too late.
Both dungeons can be attempted in Normal and Veteran difficulties, with a Veteran Hard Mode option available for those looking for a challenge. Brave delvers can discover new rewards up for grabs in both dungeons, too, including new item sets, Achievements, collectibles, and more.
PURCHASE DETAILS
The Scalebreaker DLC game pack is free for all ESO Plus members and available for purchase for 1,500 crowns from the in-game Crown Store (listed under DLC).

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.

    Chinese tactics: Large & Small Characters War of Resources. Engage at distance first. Auto-loot Auto-aim. Infantry & pets engage only after snipers have started killing in area. Fire wagon Horse for quick response. Position distance shooters. Engage with supported wagons. Bear wagon cannons. Snipers claim as core of assault and bears push in. Loot Immediately Pass gear back to bears on cannons. Snipers lay beds on newly claimed areas. Rinse, repeat Rear of combat line is maintained. Suggested countermeasures: Labrynth style choke points. Spread resources & beds to operating bases. High Ground sniper posts. "Contest Kits" - 2x2 structure mats and bed. Quick build and camp. Flame & AOE defense posts, minimal structure - guns. Key is to neutralize bear cannons and run them out of materials. Those who engaged, please continue the topic.

    I just enrolled in Premiere so I could try out Anthem... But holy shit, it includes a lot more games than I expected. Without buying them I can play all the Star Wars games (including Battlefront 2), the FIFA games (2016-2019), the Battlefield games, the Mass Effect games, the Dragon Age games, The Darksiders games... I mean, the list goes on and on. It also looks like they are getting games added in there like They Are Billions, which I've wanted to play on Steam but it never goes low enough on sale to justify it. I didn't think much of Origin prior to today, but I'm rather excited with the 100+ games I just got access to. Even if I don't own the games, $15 is well worth the cost to play whatever game I want to play in that library.

    Tools you will need See this link for the ARKpnt Editor If you do not want to use your default paint editor or you do not already have a favorite graphics editor installed, click here to download the free GIMP graphics editor. Local "my paintings" file folder Your local saves will be in your steam folder and will follow a folder path similar to this: SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\ATLAS\ShooterGame\Saved\MyPaintings Prepare and download customizable area In Atlas, obtain a paintbrush (on avatar) and some black paint on a grill using berries and filled water containers (leather pouch or water jug). One filled jug and a few berries will make a stack of 5 paint. For sails, equip the paintbrush and left click on the mast of a ship, the in-game paint window will activate. For tattoos, right click and select the tattoo button on the lower middle of in-game paint window. Use the thick black paint option to outline all the areas on the sail and/or avatar you would like to customize. When finished, click the save to disk button in the middle top of the paint window. Once complete, you have successfully save the pnt file to your "my paintings" folder. Open up the ARKpnt editor and load the saved ARKpnt file from the above mentioned "my paintings" folder. Once loaded, click the "Save as Image" button in ARKpnt and save a png file to the same "my paintings" folder. Now, open the saved png file in your graphic editor (I use Gimp). Here's a few examples of what you'll initially pull out of an ARKpnt file: Now do some fancy magic in your graphics editor in place and within the bounds of the above rough outlines: Now export your changes in png format to your "my paintings" folder. Once exported, load the image file into ARKpnt by clicking on the "Load image" button in ARKpnt....it will then ask to convert the image using "Ark/Atlas" colors. You'll end up with something like this: Next, click on the "Limit Colors" button in ARKpnt. This will allow you to customize what the final product will look like using the colors available in-game as well as limiting how many colors will be needed (the editor tries to fit as many colors as possible). So far, I've stuck with red/black tattoos and Red/White/Black for sails. It just makes it easier for others' to download the file in-game and make a copy. Here's a couple of my finished products: Once you are happy with the finished product in ARKpnt, click the "Save as ARKpnt file" button and go in-game. Get back to the paint editor window ingame, with the paintbrush left-click on the sail or right-click for tattoos. Don't forget to select the tattoo button in the bottom middle of the paint editor window. (if you fail to do this, the upload will come out fuzzy. Now click on the upload button: If you are missing dye, the editor will visually show you what you're missing. If you have all the required dyes, click the same button again to upload and apply the dye. The paintbrush will apply the paint automatically. There are some caveats that will cause network timeouts for some tattoo designs...I haven't figured out what exactly causes them, other than uploading less.

    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:

    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!

    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."

    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

    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

    as a basic person, you only get trials to games, and some full ones. but as a premier, you get access to thier full game list, and Anthem is one of them. You can download and play as many as you want, as long as your a paying for it each month. if you go basic, you lose access to the full game list. hope this helps

    This may be the game to breathe some fire back into the community. The other games on our radar list won't be out for a while, so we should try to push this one. This would be a good time to send out the community newsletter. I loved Ark, the only complaint that I heard about that game, was about the server caps, so, a survival MMO with a scale that allows for 40,000+ simultaneous players in the same world is remarkable to say the least. I am going all in on this one and I encourage others to do the same. Let's go in hard and rock this thing.

    Hellllllooooo fellow space cadets! Or maybe I should say fellow ruling Emperors and Empress'.... BETA shall start very soon, and I promised to come back and give you all a full run down and start getting you all more involved in the game. Well here I am with a full report. Outscape will start Beta by the end of this month, and between the end of December and start of January they will start early access. Early Access will be discounted heavily (we think it will be 20$, while live debuting next year will be 35$). This gives us a month to check out beta, and who knows they may push back early access for now. A few things to get you interested in the game: - You control an empire as big or small as you want, there are soft caps in some areas, but no hard limits. - There are 5 Races (Mankind (humans), People's Realm (Militaristic humans), Synits (Robots/Skynet), Ripchee (Cats/Khajits), Sntheral (Reptiles)) - Eventually there will be 12 main races, however there will be 10+ minor races of which you can take over their planets and receive bonuses. - Each race has 4 Tiers of ships - Colonizing, Transports, Freighters, Corvettes, Frigates, Heavy Frigates, Carriers, Battleships, Dreadnoughts. - The galaxy is full of systems of planets, and each planet will have gravity, temperature, mass, land vs water, all effecting the growth of your civ. - As you grow you will have to deal with happiness, corruption, and expansion (unless you are Syntis, which have problems of their own). - Different ways to play the game from mining, combat, transporting, terraforming, to espionage, the tech tree will be quite large. - Between 150-200 tech levels spread out over 4 Tiers, a lot to discover, with each Race getting several of their very own techs. - Gaining resources can come through mining a planet through mines, mining planets and asteroids with ships, or killing pirates/people. - Trading in game is hardcore old school, you meet and create a canister in space that anyone can grab if they have the cargo space. - When you defeat fleets a portion of their build cost will be left behind in their wreckage for you to discover and salvage. - Combat is automated through your own setup of commands, placement within the fleet, and makeup of the fleet. - Maneuvering outside of combat is real time, getting a good angle for attack is real time, placing mines, defense, and patrol are all real time. - Build large colonies the way you want, focus on making them happy, or pushing them to mine, or perhaps create a fortified bastion. - Experience traveling through space exploring who is near you, what planet types you might find, trying to find resources around you. - Fend off pirates while looking for asteroid belts to take advantage of all while trying to maintain your colonies. This is just a taste of the game to come, if you have any questions please feel free to leave me a message. Like some of the other games we will have a separate discord since we require A LOT of different rooms. Please message me here or drop a line in this thread if you are interested. Sign up for BETA here: https://outscape.net/signup/ref/kmoz7r399e

    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. General information:

    Hi Gawerty, Welcome back to the community. You are still a member. We don't revoke membership just because people take a break from the community. We all need to take breaks from time to time. We still have members spread across different games and gaming platforms. Some games we are more active than others. A lot of members have gone back to playing some of the older games while waiting for new releases in 2019. The CotP community is using Discord now for our voice comms. Feel free to hop on and chat if you want. You can read our recent news on the front page of this site. Recent new activity has been with Destiny 2, Fallout 76, Ark, and MapleStory 2. However, like I said earlier, we have members playing a broad assortment of games, so check our Chapter and Game Server pages to see if there is something there which might interest you. As a father and an older gamer, I would encourage you to continue your education. Juggling work, life and college isn't easy, so try to shoot for 1 class per semester and if that isn't possible then shoot for 1 class per year. There are two online colleges that I highly recommend. Both have been around for a long time and they are not paper mills. They are fully accredited. What makes them great colleges is that you can take classes from other colleges or take their courses. If you are good with taking tests, you can pretty much test out for all your classes which will save you a ton of money. thomas edison state university https://www.tesu.edu/ Excelsior College https://www.excelsior.edu/

    Our Ark server is now up for the new Ark: Extinction expansion! Contact me via PM for connection details (COTP members only). Map Details: Map: Extinction (new expansion map) Server Settings: Player XP = 1, Harvest Multiplier = x1, Difficulty Setting = 1 (max wild dino = lvl 120), Taming Multiplier = x10 , and Increased baby Maturation Rate & sped up Mating Timers. The taming / baby modifiers are simply due to time - we don't always have time to sit and watch a dino passively tame for 3 hours. In regards to Mods, what we use tends to fluctuate each time we restart the server. However, the core mods we use are almost always the same 6: Ark Advance Lite (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1557869169) = We've used Ark Advance 10 in the past, but it just too huge (1GB+). It was bloated with a ton of items and buildings we never used, and it was a pain to update. Ark Advance Lite is much more streamlined, and only 200MB. It basically just adds some quality of life improvements to the game, such as better tranq darts and some electrical appliances that are not as bulky or restrictive as the vanilla versions. Structures Plus (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=731604991) = This mod adds a large number of items and structures to the game. While many parts of this mod were added to the vanilla game as "official mod content", having the full mod installed enables their entire array of new content. Classic Flyers (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=895711211) = This mod allows you to add levels to your flying dinos' speed stat (like it was pre-nerf on the Official game). Infinite Flare Gun (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=537753733) = Exactly what it says... While somewhat expensive to craft, it has unlimited uses. We use it on our server for coordinating groups and showing people important locations. Dino Pick Up Mod (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=870709781) = Not everyone utilizes this mod, but it basically allows you to bring larger dinos into smaller caves and whatnot. Crafting this item allows you to temporarily put any dino on your shoulder. Kaetokid's Stack Mod (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1257667367) = Increases the maximum stack # of resources. i.e. a "stack" of stone is 500 instead of 100. For this incarnation of our server, we are also using: Super Spyglass (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=793605978) = Better version of the vanilla spyglass, so it has additional stats that are not otherwise shown. Fister's All Fog Remover (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1148802682) = As you would expect, this removes the fog effect in-game. Some of our players were having graphical / performance issues on certain servers with heavy fog. I don't know if they have fixed that issue on Extinction, but we are including this tiny mod just in case it is needed.

    I have been wanting one for the last few years now and though there are some good ones out there, they all have issues. So I continue to wait for a good one to be made but it should be noted I am picky. Black light bleed issues, fake 10 bit color not for me. Only advice I can give you is screw ACER and their forced splash screen on power up. Nothing like turning on your monitor, seeing your desktop for a half a sec then having to sit through a 5 second AD for a monitor you own. I started a big uprising on their forums and they said they added a feature in settings to lower it to 2 seconds but I have not bought once since so I do not know.

    This is the official COTP Knight Exam. We highly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the COTP Guild Charter before taking this exam. Make sure to read it thoroughly, and take notes. Why? Not only is it a good idea to know the ins and outs of our guild charter, but also because this exam does not allow you to leave the screen / tab that the quiz is on. In other words, if you switch windows to look something up on the charter, the quiz system will automatically fail you. So yeah, don't do that! Yes, this will be more difficult than the Sentry Exam. It is meant to be. Best of luck to you! NOTE: You *must* be a COTP Sentry before you take this Knight Exam. If you take the Knight Exam before fulfilling the requirements as a Sentry, your score will not be counted. Please reach out to your chapter leader if you have any further questions.
