Official AoC website has been updated - A quick look at the Intrepid and mycom AoC websites
  • 339

Intrepid recently updated their official website, featuring a new shop, account functionality, download options for APOC and more.
Their old website was sorely lacking in both functionality and aesthetics, being a combination of several "themes" as they had updated the website a little by little. A good website is always vital for a game, as it will be the first look for many new players wanting to know more about the game.

As so, this was a good day to take a look at the brand new, Ashes of Creation website! Also, for comparison, we took a look at the AoC My.com website, which will be the "official" website for European players.

Steven Sharif joined Krojak for some fun squad play, while also taking the time to answer some questions!

krojak.jpg
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.

I hope that people are enjoying the world, the look of the world, the art etc. This build is a...

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.
