The Ashes of Creation Dungeon

Why Ashes of Creation Will be the Next Big MMO

MMOs or Massive Multiplayer Online games have been around for decades now and originally centered on player experience and community creation, but in a continuous effort for profitability or play time numbers the game models have changed in unfavorable ways that are ultimately driving players away from the genre. Many of you out there have been plodding through game after game, trying to get that lost feeling back. The sense of adventure and wonder you feel when stepping into a fresh MMO. The story, new scenery, friendships, and enemies, but unfortunately the thrills in recent years have been far and few between. The MMO market has slowly lost steam, with games even like leader World of Warcraft losing continuous subs as time marches forward. People ask, is this because the MMO genre is dead? Has it lost its relevance in the era of quick paced games such as battle royals? Far from it. What the MMO industry HAS been lacking, however, is an elite MMO banner for players to rally behind once again. Enter: Ashes Of Creation by Intrepid Studio.

Everyone in MMOs know that community is...

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.

I hope that people are enjoying the world, the look of the world, the art etc. This build is a pretty good look on the aesthetics of the environment.

Glorious Greetings Ashes Community! Since this is my first article on the AoC Dungeon I borrowed Steven’s salutations for the first and last time. For those that are not aware (probably most of you), the Ashes of Creation Wiki site is collaborating with the AoC Dungeon to bring the community expanded content that we don’t feel would be appropriate for the wiki. The wiki is fully sourced, and not based on opinion, speculation, or off hand unofficial comments. That said, sometimes you just want to tell people what you think, whether that be to discuss, demerit, or celebrate a topic. Therefore, we felt like the AoC Dungeon was a great place to host all our various ramblings. Our newly added guest editor team consists of BraneGames, Chaoser, Deus, Tiberius, Ziltch, and everyone’s favorite vampire hunter. I hope you find our content enjoyable and informative!

With that introduction, the first topic I wanted to discuss was testing. Ashes of Creation has been a very different experience so far compared to most game development...

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.

Steven Sharif said:
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.
