26 years old, from Norway, and my job is a radiologic technologist. On my free time (outside PC related activities), I enjoy playing board games and poker. I have tons of various board games that we play in my gaming group. In poker, I have played in my national championship a few years now. It's fun!
So there is a substantial update coming to Xenforo very soon, it is currently in the last stage of beta, so I'm expecting it in December, or January at the latest. It is the first large feature update since Xenforo 2.0 was released last year.

Steven Sharif joined Krojak for some fun squad play, while also taking the time to answer some questions!
Time to find some tasty items..
Krojak: I had a blast playing, but playing squad play when solo is a challenge, due to no voice communication option. But aside from that, it's awesome! Steven: We tried to implement the voice chat, but that there were some slight issues, which will be fixed tomorrow (October 23rd), I think.
Krojak: What are your plans regarding server status and server up-time this week? Steven: We have a lot of things we need to fix Monday-Wednesday, and then we hope on Thursday (for the Thursday to Sunday session) to have those fixes implemented.

Rejoice dear ashlings, Ashes of Creation has now officially entered Alpha 1 Phase 1, and with that the NDA has been completely lifted. This also means that all Alpha 1 backers have been invited to test the battle royale combat mode (~ 10 000). In addition, all Alpha 2 backers have been invited for this weekend test as well. In the coming weeks they will also be inviting beta backers, all Alpha 0 backers, and eventually all registered users on the Ashes of Creation website.

We are happy to announce the testing is going very well and we are collecting a lot of useful data. Everyone at Intrepid cannot thank our Glorious community enough for their help in making mmos great... once more."
Yesterday Steven decided to drop the NDA temporarily for official content creators, which resulted in lots of streamers providing live gameplay footage from the battle royale squad testing. The test lasted for about 3 hours, providing Intrepid with tons of useful information.
Steven also shared on Twitter that next week, also those who are not official content creators, will be able to stream and share their content from the Alpha 1 Arena test.
Check out all the awesome videos from yesterday:

The program is intended for content creators looking to cooperate in building up our communities. Currently we are looking for streamers and video content creators, though this may be expanded in the future.
Last night at ~0300 CEST, the Alpha 1 stress test for Ashes went live. The stress test will include a limited number of testers, which will increase each week. The first week only has about 450 testers (but this may be increased), the second will increase that to over 2000 testers, and finally 5000 testers for week 3. The point of this stress test is to test their server backend, login-system, matchmaking, etc. All those underlying mechanics that need to be working properly before they open the gates for all those with Alpha 1 access.
The participants are chosen from Kickstarter backers, then summer backers, and finally the pre-order pack backers. If you are not selected in these weeks, don't be alarmed: After about 3 weeks of stress testing, Alpha 1 will be open to allthose with access to that phase.
NDA is still active folks, hold your streaming horses!
As for NDA, Steven confirmed on Discord yesterday that there is still an active...
