    Ashes of Creation

    I just wanted to put this MMO out there for everyone to see. It was only made public in December 2016, and it looks like they've come quite a long ways before they even announced the game. They have just announced a Kickstarter that will go live on Monday, May 1st. https://www.ashesofcreation.com/

    This is part 1 of their node system, which is a significantly large determining factor in the gameplay of each server:



    Part 2 of the node system:



    Here is pre-alpha footage of some mage gameplay:



    Here is the Discord server link for the game, the developers are highly interactive with the Discord community.

    They appear to have come a long way prior to Kickstarter. Good looking world, though I have reservations about player shaped and driven worlds - great in theory. Chronicles of Elyria is trying something similar but without the node system. Still, it will be interesting to watch this game develop.

    I have my own set of reservations about this game, but it looks promising. I'm definitely looking forward to Chronicles of Elyria as well, but they are going to have the same astronomical problem as Ashes of Creation if both of these games continue with the feudal system they are implementing.

    I don't know enough about the AoC feudal system yet to know how much it will impact the game, but it seems it could only be a minor issue. The whole system they're designing with CoE, though, that shit is 100% going to backfire in their fucking faces. You have all of these groups coming in as end game type organizations and guilds, just like they do in any other MMO, but then you have all these rich casual fucks paying $1k to $10k for a county, duchy, or kingdom. Every single one of these counts, dukes, and kings are setting up their provinces exactly like an EVE super guild, and anyone who has ever been competitive in an MMO can tell right off the bat that these people couldn't cut it in a hardcore guild if their lives depended on it. There is no place in a game like CoE for a guild like Avid, unless Defiant chips in $10k for a kingdom and we recruit the next 5,000 people that randomly ask to join. At that point, we might as well hold hands and sing Kumbaya.

    Everything up to the $1,000 pledges sold out for this game an hour after the Kickstarter launched. New tiers and pledge packages have been added. I wish I would've been camping the early bird tier packages, they added some last minute tiers to get into the game now.

    Getting super hyped! Massively Q&A here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/142465168 ... and there is also https://youtu.be/g-UeHMcBXIg which is the newest one, but I can't listen to it with all the discord beeps. Here's a transcript of that one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4z7syr2dm0...2017.docx?dl=0

    And then there's the QA with Fevir.. our former guild member =P https://www.twitch.tv/videos/141624484

    Congraaaaaaaaaaaaaats!!!!

    At this moment in time, Ashes of Creation has officially reached over $2 million with over 11k Backers and 16 days still remaining!!

    We cannot express just how grateful everyone at Intrepid Studios is for the outpouring of support and excitement. We are absolutely dedicated to creating the most amazing MMORPG you can possibly experience!

    With the 11k Backer Goal achieved, every backer will now receive an exclusive Kickstarter mount, the Tidesnapper!

    With the $2million stretch goal unlocked, Social organizations are now a part of the game! This includes deep story driven organizations that players can advance in, and help to spread across the nodes in the game. Accomplishing goals and server driven questlines relating to these organizations. A more in-depth blog on each of the organizations will be released during development.

    You will see 2 new additions to the stretch goal and backer goal list.

    Kickstarter exclusive mount barding - This exclusive Kickstarter armor skin can be used by any mount, and will stand-out as an amazing piece of armor with bright emissives and rich textures!

    Stock Exchange - This is a very in-depth system that relates to how Nodes, Player Guilds and Social Organizations perform in the world. This will allow players to invest those communities through the form of a stock exchange that will measure certain metrics to determine success or failure around the world. If a guild fails in a raid, shareholders in that guild may see a drop in it's value. Or if a node advances in activities and trade routes leading to it, the shareholders may see a spike in their dividends. Social organizations such as the Thieves Guild may see community quest points achieved throughout the world and different chapters being built in nodes across the realm, resulting in a higher valuation.

    The Stock Exchange System will bring a whole new world to how players can participate in the economy.

    Without your help of spreading the word for Ashes, we could not have achieved this amazing support.

    From everyone at Intrepid, Thank you.
