Everyone should now have a new style enabled by default, the "dungeon style". It has been custom ported for my Xenforo 2 website, and should fit a lot more into the Ashes of Creation game\dungeon theme!
One major part is still not done, and that is the new logo. Will be finalized this week.
There will also be continuous adjustments throughout the week to fine-tune everything.
Feedback is important, so please tell me what you think!
"What about the old style? I kind of preferred that one.."
Fear not, you can still use the old one if you wish. Switching to the "alternative black style" is easy, just press the button with the light-bulb, labeled "Change style". It is located right above the footer. -->
At this day in 2018, I made my first post on the website, thus marking the official launch. I am very proud of the progress so far! We have made detailed stream recaps of all streams in 2018, awesome feature articles (example) and more. The AoC Dungeon has become a official content creator for the game, and we’ve expanded the website with all sorts of cool new features and improvements, such as the guild list.
I’ve made lots of new friends, recruited some amazing staff members, and can’t wait to see how the site and its community evolves in 2019.
Welcome to the new senior community manager for Ashes of Creation, Sarah Flanagan! She will be the main communication from Intrepid to the community (on a day-to-day basis). You can check out her AMA on Reddit for more info and wish her welcome to the Intrepid team!
Enjoy a sneak peak of the Siege Maps for the Ashes of Creation MMORPG coming soon to Ashes of...
Castle Siege Information:
Intrepid showcased 2 whole castles for the castle siege and Steven teased that these were 2 of the 5 castles that would exist in the MMORPG. The first castle is the Aelan human castle...
This weekend, the Ashes of Creation Apocalypse mode, will be open for all registered users to download and play!
The test will go live Friday, January 11 at 17.00 UTC (09.00 PT) and will last until Sunday, January 13 at 06.00 UTC (22.00 PT).
Apocalypse is a free-to-play, stand-alone action combat mode where players can compete in various arena modes. Currently, it is limited to battle royale (battlegrounds), but will later include castle sieges and horde mode. For more info on the release schedule, click here. All the data gathered is used to improve and further develop the MMORPG side of Ashes of Creation.
The main focus of the test this weekend, will be gathering data on the following:
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.

We see the devs spawn into what is a level 5 City Node, Elven themed, filled with NPC's and life.
In this detailed node window we see a bunch of systems that are working behind the scenes. We see a progression bar that shows us that this node is level 5 (City Stage) and is 1/4th of the way to becoming a Metropolis. We also see the total citizens of the node, the tax rate that is set by the mayor of the node (in this case Steven) and we got some information on the 'Trade Agreements' system. Trade agreements basically are agreements between two nodes that lets players do certain specific caravan runs...
