  1. Whoa, 18 years indeed. Welcome back Methanol!
  2. If anyone is interested in playing Population Zero when it releases in May, they are giving away full game keys to the first 5,000 people that sign up for their event, and Closed Beta keys for the next 5,000 people after that. I went through all the steps and sure enough, I now "own" one of their $30 founder packs for free. Details are on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Populationzeroonline/ The next Closed Beta starts on March 21st!
  3. Yeah, it's on my radar. I have been included in several of the Alpha tests, and it has a lot of potential. It's still pretty rough around the edges, but we shall see how it shapes up at release.
  4. @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".
  5. I watched the full 3 hour video... I'm actually feeling better about it now than my initial reaction (anger & frustration). Colossus / Ragnarok gave the investors a reason to put more money into the company, and let them hire more people to help with the new side-game. Like he said in the interview, a lot of the coding and design progression that went into Ragnarok is something they will use for CU. In the end, it may give the players something to mess around with and play until CU releases, and in theory it should speed up the CU development process. Anything that makes CU closer to launch sounds good to me. I've been on the losing side of other companies that basically stopped development to work on a completely different game that did not progress their initially promised game in any way. I've seen the cash grab developers that take all the backers money and give up on games. None of that seems to be what is happening here. Out of all the developers out there, I have more faith in Mark and CSG than the big AAA companies. Like Mark said in the video - they are giving Ragnarok for FREE to the backers. They could have easily tried to charge people for it and bring in more money. Do I wish CU was out last year? Absolutely. 2019 was probably the most frustrating year in recently history for MMORPG's. I want CU sooner than later, but at least they are doing something with their time that progresses towards a better game. I just hope it actually pays off and they move CU sooner.
  6. Yeah, we can probably set one up if they have Clans implemented. I honestly haven't been far enough in the game to test that. If anyone wants to join us in Wolcen, my Wolcen Tag / ID is "elrickvothe.0920"
  7. 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! Final Launch Trailer: Rhykker's Review: ZiggyD's Gaming Review:
  8. If anyone is interested in playing Wolcen, their full "Release" goes live tomorrow on 2/13/2020. I know Cecil and I will be playing Wolcen for the forseeable future, as we've burned out on Diablo III and Path of Exile.
  9. Hah yeah, I've been doing that too. If I did it every day it would be done already, but even casually logging on 2x a week or so, I'm almost done. Doesn't it still grant you the "ArcheMaster" title?
  10. Here's the "Review" they posted about the recent Alpha test (see below). It sounds like I wasn't the only one with those concerns.
  11. I knew it was a free Alpha test this weekend, so I wasn't expecting much... However, my 1 hour in the game was frustrating and pointless. I started out messing with gathering / crafting and some PvE. That part was alright, but going any farther was a waste of time. Literally every single plot on the map is taken. I ran for 40+ minutes and did not see a single open plot of land to test any of the player housing and building mechanics. Meanwhile, all I see in chat is a bunch of kids trolling new players. People would ask where there were open plots, so trolls would suggest spots that were open - and then laugh when people got there to find all the spots taken. Fun stuff. Why have an open Alpha test if every single plot on the map is already taken? This means no new players can even test a major part of the game. On the bright side, I'm glad I ran into the toxic community and gameplay issues before I invested any money into the game. It's just disappointing, because I thought this game had an insane amount of potential. I think this one is going to be a "no" from me. At least not before it launches and has actually playable content.
  12. Hit me up on Discord or Steam if you're interested. I've been playing it daily for the last few weeks, and here is what I can tell you so far: 1. While playable solo, it is a lot more fun to play with other people. It also does not matter what planet or "server" that you start on. It gives you the option of U.S. East or West, but all that does is determine which planets are in your available starter planet pool. Once you start playing the game you can get to any planet. For example, I started on a U.S. West planet. However, through using the portal system of the game, I could easily get to the US East planets, or the EU planets, or the AU planets. There are no restrictions between countries in this game. 2. The game seems like it has a steep learning curve at first, but really all you need is one person to ask your questions. If a knowledgeable player can help you out, it becomes 10x more fun. 3. Join a guild. While COTP doesn't have enough of a population to warrant a chapter yet, there are a few of us playing. I joined a guild called "Portal Seekers". They have been playing together since Beta, and their players are incredibly knowledgeable about the game. They have a portal system set up where you can freely travel to every planet in the game. They also have established easy access to player "Shopping Malls". It is essentially a group of portals that go directly to different players' shops. This game has no NPC shops, so the entire economy is player driven! Again, just hit me up on Discord / Steam to chat.
  13. Also, if you have some additional time, this video has some good info as well.
  14. Hey guys... I finally got my Clipper boat finished last night. I would like to get started with fishing, but I'm looking for some "fishing buddies" to do it with. As I understand it; in the current Wynn economy Fishing is the #1 top way to earn gold. Yep, that's right - even better than trade packs, farming, dungeons, etc. I think only the Library runs can beat Fishing in terms of gold per minute. However, Library can only be done once a day, and it's a total shit-show in terms of organization. I'd like to get a group of people together to get started with fishing. Ideally we can start with the clipper, and eventually get a fishing boat for the guild. In case you haven't seen the "X for Fishing Raid" spam in Nation chat, there is a current achievement that rewards you with a free fishing boat design. It is insanely fast to reach this achievement in a raid as every person's fish catching contributes to your personal goal. I know, it doesn't make sense, but hey that's ArcheAge! Other than sitting in a raid fishing, there are some steps to take before we get to that point. I would suggest that anyone interested start out with the following video: I'll be online any night after 9:30 or 10 pm Central time if anyone wants to chat more. It may be possible to do fishing runs during the day on some days as well, if the 10pm time is too late for some people. For now I would say follow the video and get going with the Fishing quest in-game. Once you get to the point where you are supplied and ready for some longer fishing runs, let me know and we can head out on the Clipper. I haven't figured it out 100% yet in terms of requirements for the fishing raids, but I will look into that further tonight. Let's go fishing!
