WildStar / Wildstar Weekend/Nights! October 9th and 10th
« on: October 05, 2015, 11:01:37 PM »
Now that Wildstar is Free to Play, it's been quite active. There is a new TG guild on Entity server, Exile side. WE've been PVEing with Adventures, Expeditions and Dungeons, as well as PvPing and kicking butt!

Let's all get together like old times this weekend for some good times! In Teamspeak and maybe even a Google Hangout. :)

See you there!

Crowfall / Pre-Alpha Screenshots/Discussion
« on: September 14, 2015, 12:50:01 PM »
Since there are now quite a few of us with pre-alpha access and more being added every week, let's discuss and post screenshots!

Here is my little Legionnaire "Tinitaur"

Guild Wars 2 - Isle of Janthir / Guild Wars 2 WvW Night(s)
« on: September 10, 2015, 03:14:14 PM »
Since there are quite a few of us picking up the game, I thought it would be fun to have a Guild Wars 2 night, or nights. Friday and Saturday (during the day was well) hope in TS and on your character. If you're not high enough level to get into WvW (have to be level 20), we can help you level up. :D My account name is Martini.6198
See you in there!

Crowfall / Sept 9 - Founder's Update
« on: September 09, 2015, 08:05:23 PM »
Published September 9th, 2015

Welcome to another Founders’ Update for Crowfall! We've had a LOT of great stuff happening over here at ACE during the last week -- so let's get right to business!

Achievement unlocked! We set a goal of raising $1 million to add to our Crowfall development budget, and last week we crossed the $1MM line!

In addition to our direct fundraising efforts, we also have a syndicate (Moonshots Capital) on Angel List that is raising a small fund to invest in ArtCraft.  As we noted in previous updates, AngelList is an online platform that allows accredited investors to invest in new start-ups. Even though we've already hit our target, rest assured that the money raised by Moonshots will be used to grow ArtCraft and make Crowfall a better game! Moonshots has decided to close the round on 9/15 and, at the request of some potential investors, they are lowering the minimum investment to $2K to participate.

We're excited to announce that within a week we'll be offering pre-orders of our Collectors' Edition game box! It will be available for $150 (a pre-sale discount off the retail price of $179) + shipping and taxes (depending on your location).

Combat testing has started, and the response so far has been fantastic!  We've gotten a ton of great feedback and, as expected, plenty of new bugs to fix. The most gratifying thing has been that people have been having fun in the Hunger Dome; the most aggravating has been people who can't play or who have a bad experience due to bugs, hardware issues or performance. Thank you all for your continued patience as we work through these issues and make the game work for everyone!

More invitations will be coming soon -- so be sure to check the forums to know when to keep an eye on that inbox! Information about the date and time of the next window can be found HERE. It's important to note that although testers from the group called "Alpha 1" are being added, we are still in PRE-ALPHA.

Once all of our Alpha 1 players have received Hunger Dome invites, we will be inviting a small number of streamers to participate in a limited number of the Crowfall pre-alpha combat test sessions. Slots are limited, so please be aware that initial selection will be based not only on your willingness to participate but also your audience reach and other criteria listed HERE.

As always, you have our sincere gratitude for your support. Thanks for sharing this adventure with us!

Todd and Gordon

Crowfall / Playing in the mean time?
« on: September 07, 2015, 12:31:34 AM »
Since a lot of us are a bit all over the map, I thought I'd make a thread so we could maybe coordinate and play some things together. Feel free to add what you're playing.

Sword Coast Legends (Release September 29, 2015)
D&D game/world with solo, co-op and custom group campaign building. (B2P $35.99)

Heroes of the Storm
Blizzard's new F2P MOBA. Fast-paced and fun.

Dungeon Defenders II
New, fun tower defense game. (B2P $15.99)

Guild Wars 2
Core game is now free, and as always, no sub fee. WvW pvp action and team play.

F2P MMO with action combat similar to that of Crowfall.

DC Universe Online
F2P super hero MMO with action combat.

F2P action-based combat system with fun PVP.

Any other ideas, feedback, or suggestions? It would be fun to start playing something together, or at least hanging out more in Teamspeak. I think these are like "team-building activities".  :torynn:

Other Games and Interests / Wildstar Free-to-play launches Sept 29!
« on: September 03, 2015, 09:31:12 AM »
Time to start hoarding snacks and planning to call in sick—the WildStar Free-to-Play update, WildStar: Reloaded, launches September 29!

WildStar: Reloaded includes BIG changes to core game systems; a new character creation and intro experience; improvements to dungeons, itemization, tradeskills, world bosses and group content; a class stat revamp; new quality of life features, bonus events, the Cosmic Rewards program, and so much more.

Best of all (and despite the repeated objections of the Protostar Corporation) it’ll all be totally free!

Players who want a little more can choose to join WildStar Signature service, which provides new bonuses and rewards on top of the basic game. They can also visit the in-game Store, a new interface which sells cosmetic improvements, character services, progression boosts, and other goodies. The Store accepts good ol' Earth cash or the new OmniBits currency. What are OmniBits? Only money you can earn just by playing the game, accomplishing goals, and killing all kinds of stuff, that's what!

Don't want to wait? If you’re itching to come back and blow things up immediately in the period before the free-to-play conversion, you’ll earn Cosmic Reward points for the Cosmic Rewards program—and any leftover time when Reloaded launches will automatically convert to Signature service. Current subscribers are also guaranteed access to beta test the WildStar: Reloaded update. Not subscribed? You can sign up for a chance to participate and help kick off the second phase of our beta that starts today (September 3). And those with access who log in to the beta realm will be given a “Freelancer” title for all their characters to use after the Reloaded launch.

We’ve got a lot more to show off over the next few weeks, so keep checking back for updates and news as we get closer to September 29th. (OH MAN, IT’S SO CLOSE!) And be sure to keep an eye out for beta key promotions and giveaways!

Other Games and Interests / Pathfinder Online Lays Off Almost Entire Staff
« on: September 03, 2015, 12:36:55 AM »
Paizo CEO Lisa Stevens has announced to Pathfinder Online supporters that the majority of the Goblinworks team working on the game has been laid off.

We knew we needed a certain amount of money to finish to build the game, and we came really damn close, but we just couldn’t find the last bit of funding that we needed. […] Last Friday, we had to lay off most of the staff. […] I couldn’t pay them anymore. We gave them lots of warning, so they all knew this was coming.

CTO Mark Kalms, Art Director Mike Hines, and Designer Bob Settles are all that remain of the studio. According to Stevens, Goblinworks CEO Ryan Dancey left the company two weeks ago for personal reasons unrelated to the layoffs. Lee Hammock and Steven Cheney were also apparently among those let go.

Work on the game will continue with the three remaining employees, paid by existing subscription revenue, which will also keep the servers online. Paizo is closing the Goblinworks office and moving the trio into the Paizo offices. Stevens says Paizo is seeking an external publisher to buy Goblinworks or investors to complete the game. There is hope, she says, since 75% of the game is already paid for; she expects the game will take between 1 million and 2 million dollars to finish.

Stevens further hints that the game’s original Kickstarter was intended to speed up the project and was predicated on additional investment commitments that didn’t fully materialize. Another Kickstarter, she says, is not planned as the team is still working on existing Kickstarter rewards.

When asked what the community can do, she suggested that continuing to play and pay the early enrollment subscription, inviting new players, and treating new players well is most helpful.

Our sympathies extend to the entire studio and its players.
