First look at PvP castle sieges in Ashes of Creation!
  • 2,831

The Intrepid team is working hard to bring us Alpha 1 later this year, which will focus on some large PvP elements such as castle sieges. So to our big surprise, Steven just finished a playtest in Alpha 0 during the first part of the stream (so the playtest was why the stream was delayed 1 hour). While Steven was busy having fun with the play-testers, Bacon, Jeffrey and Peter guided us through the traditional questions and answers section.
What I personally found to be the most interesting questions and answers, I have marked in purple and moved up. You can read these further down on the page. Credit for the write-up of the Q&A section goes to AoC Wiki.

But first, the highlight of the stream:

New month, new cosmetics in the Ashes of Creation pre-order packs. As usual, the packs are the same in terms of the other content (test access, game-time, embers etc), while the cosmetics rotate each month. If you have already bought a pre-order pack, don't worry: You can still purchase the new cosmetics. It will be available as a addon, so you won't have to buy the whole pre-order package again.

For a closer look at the cosmetics, check out our media gallery :)

Hello dear readers! You may have noticed two new pages that has popped up in the header navigation, called premium and donate.
The premium membership is similar to the popular Patreon service, where you can run a paid membership for your fans. The fans get a few nice perks, while also helping the site financially. So with this post I'm going to explain a bit more about this program and what options there are to support our community, if you wish to do so.

Premium
On this page you will get a breakdown of what is included in the different premium deals. Two of the options are subscription types: 2 months at $4.00 ($2.00 per month) and 1 year at $18.00 ($1.50 per month). This is similar to many Patreon services, which runs at $1-5 per month. Then you have the last option, which is...
Interview with Steven Sharif - Ashes of Creation Community Podcast #024 [BCG]
  • 1,739

BCG welcomes us to a community podcast with Greypelt, Okies, Truth Eternal and of course Steven Sharif as special guest. This is a great podcast, and I strongly recommend watching it. A link to the full podcast is at the bottom of this article. My favorite questions that got answered today, are marked in purple.


BCG: Why do you prefer MMORPGs to other game genres?
Steven:
MMOs is a unique genre, providing the same ability to connect with people all across the world. With my previous guild, which I started in 2002, we had thousands of members. It was such a unique ability to turn on vent/TS and chat together with people across the world and bonding with them. Just the experience to fight with them, engaging in server wars, grafting and gathering the best gear.. You know, it is such a unique experience and that's why it is so...

Steven answered a few more questions on the official forum!

So it seems like Steven totally forgot about the forum thread ahead of the latest live stream (he took the questions from discord this time), but luckily he decided to answer some of them on the forum afterwards! So let's just jump right to the questions and answers.

Question:
As for my question, you misunderstood I think. I was just interested in a server with the NAME of Stuffertons as a gathering place for the sillier-minded players among us.
Don't get me wrong, I'm totally down for the other idea too!

Answer:
Ah I see, Servers will be named after the champions of the great battles that led up to the fall of Verra.

First raid PvE video released from Alpha 0! May 4th livestream breakdown and Q&A section
  • 2,775

What a great livestream last night! The stream, which lasted for about 1 hour, featured Steven, Jeffrey and Bacon. We first got a brief introduction, where they talked about bacon stuff (of course!), their Kickstarter office bet (Tristan cheated!) and how their team has increased from 30 to 70 in the last year. Very impressive! They are currently working on housing and environments, and we have some images shared which you can check out bellow.


The gang ready for another live stream!

First PvE raid video and Alpha 1 build ahead of schedule

We got shared a video from a recent Alpha 0 test, where they focused on PvE raid mechanics. The current size for raids was confirmed to be 40 players, but being alpha this can obviously change later. Steven also mentioned that they are impressed by the Epic engine, and their progress for the...
