Wolcen: Major Content Patch

If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path.  If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios.  On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off!

ATLAS: Present and Future

We have been at it since day one, that ugly and...well, let's just stick with ugly...launch. Even through the lag muck and server instability, you could read the stars and see the potential.  Right off the bat it was only for the tough, and we barreled through the glitchy log-ins, the shaky starter zones and the wretched "lawless" starting areas and found our way to the rafts.  Some were able to get to our island after 3-4 hours of learning how to tack, zig zag and fight through server borders and with a full stack of human hides, and then some were finally rescued after what seemed like days of being eaten alive by scorpions and crocodiles, only to quickly get used to dying to the cold, the wolves, the alpha horses, the water, the sharks and each other's general noob mistakes.
Yes, with the known developer, we did try to ARK it, or Dark and Light it...hell, we've even tried to Life is Feudal this one....and Atlas is just NOT those games.  Some visuals and sounds are there, but the depth and options and functionality is just SO much more.  What really took the game from just another ARK expansion to, the potential mmo of the decade, was getting out on our first schooner, the SS Skjoldr (video below).  The experience was entirely PvE, but when you have 13 people packed on to a single vessel and the guys repairing the ship are as vital as the helmsman steering and the deckhands manning the sails, it became something I haven't seen in a game since our friday night flights on the Decimator back in SWG.
We have had just a blast learning the game and surviving our island and our neighbors over the past couple weeks.  Though it may appear as if we are well off enough, growing from 30 actives day one, to more than double that now, we absolutely could use more folks interested in living the Atlas life.  Whether you are interested in navigating the high seas, captaining a brigand, farming the tundra, mucking through politics, taming elephants or exploring the massive (30-40 hours of sailing from one end to the other) world, it is all here and we have many members willing to help you get started.
Here is a few screencaps and videos to give you an idea of what we have been up to:

  • New Features are being added to forums. Stay tuned for updates.
  • Enjoy your summer everyone!
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.

Yep, the new Knight Exam is no joke!  A majority of these same questions made up the previous Sentry and Knight Exams.  The new exam is no longer "open book"; and that is what makes all the difference!  In the past, I've heard people admit that they never bothered to read the charter.  They just had it open in another window and did a Ctrl+F to find what answer they needed.  That really defeats the purpose of something like this.  The idea is that if you are to be a permanent leader in COTP, we want to make sure you are at least familiar with the main points of the COTP Charter.  Yes, it will be challenging to complete.  I am hoping this encourages people to invest their time and get to know the guild better.

If you do not meet the 80% pass requirement, please reach out to your Chapter Leader. Just let them know which questions you think you missed.  It's up to the Chapter Leader if they want to discuss it with you further.  Following that discussion, if they feel you are ready to take it again, have them shoot me a PM and I will reset the quiz so you can take it again.

I suppose if anyone would know that Charter backwards and forwards, it would be you Throne.  90% on the first try is a damn good score!

Elric, a couple of the questions had answers that cut off mid-sentence.

As for my A- score, question two had ambiguity written all over it!  I definitely missed the other one.
