    I planned to try this out, but wasn't sure if I'd be into it. I just watched that director's trailer though and damn it looks better than I anticipated.

    I'll probably go Regulus as well. Will we have a guild set up there?

    Apparently the guild rewards (silmael crystals) are pretty important for character upgrades etc. and require a pretty big active guild; with the split between east and west servers I don't think we'll have enough active players on either to make joining a PA guild not effectively shooting yourself in the foot unfortunately.

    well dang

    Best of luck out there, Ark peoples. I don't think I have enough Michael Keatons in my garage to play this, but I'm eager to see how well it does.

    I don't know if i will join the PA guild or not (might have a clan with friends) but I am def down to play with PA people

    Worst case there's also the Global Chat function, we can make a room in each region for PA people to still chat/find groups that's not tied to guilds.

    @PiptheFair how about we start up a guild on Regulus and and see how it goes and we can invite random people if we need more members?

    Not looking forward to dealing with random internet denizens in an MMO, but if we have rules up front about being respectful it should be OK.

    I can give it a go

    I got no problem joining a guild on Regulus and then filling out the roster with non-PA people so long as they know to not be a dick.

    The global chat should 100% happen though since I think most raids/pvp is region wide

    this is a funny turn of events i've never seen before because, well i don't bother preloading anything. My cpu is slow enough and my internet fast enough it's quicker to download a game then decrypt the preload files. lmao. Just deleted it and am re-d/ling due to how slow the unpack is.

    edit: yup i have redownloaded the game again and am in in the time it took my unpack to get to 15%

    my steam version isn't unlocked despite owning a pack

    I had to restart steam before it started unpacking for me

    I had this, restarting steam fixed it. But even then, the vast majority of people don't seem to be able to get in yet - Steam has to apply some update and then "unpack" the game, which is timing out for most people (including me). Steam is getting rammed.

    Also, this game currently has almost 1 million viewers on twitch.

    Cleared all the Steam hurdles but the game gets to the splash screen then stops launching.

    I'm sure the servers are fucked. I wasn't even going to be on for 9am today but I randomly woke up at 8:40 because I guess my body was ready.

    this is honestly about what I expected

    Its crazy to see steam as the point of failure though heh.

  • SpawnbrokerSpawnbroker Registered User regular
    This game DDOS'd the Steam servers, eh...

    So uhhh, I guess none of us are getting in today

    I don't even get to the unpacking phase yet. Got to download something before I can unpack, but it keeps timing out.

    I patched about 4gb of other games at noon after a restart, but no unlock file for this. That seems pretty weird to me.

    Anyways, went with NA EAST AVESTA for a server with some friends.

    My expectation was flawless unlock and then flaming disaster at server connect/pick/login.

    It's on me for not reading the description properly i guess but i'm kinda bummed the founders pack pet (and other non curenncy rewards) is specific to one character

    I'm rolling on Avesta because that sounds like the name of a prescription drug.

    Ask your doctor if Avesta is right for you

    I can say I've seen that at least a few streamers have rolled on Regulus, so I hope that doesn't affect things too badly for ya'll.

    Hrm, paid the $15 before remembering that MMO's always have rocky launches. Steam just keeps cycling trying to download the 800mb.

    Twitch is close to breaking the all time view record for all MMOs for this game.

    Yay unpacking. On to the next queue step.

    I'm in!

    Multimeter on Regulus, cause I guess my friends decided to swerve to this server at the last second

  • KasynKasyn Registered User regular
    Got in just fine. Less than an hour. If that's the extent of the issues that'll be the smoothest MMO launch from my own personal experience, anyway.

  • TalithTalith 変態という名の紳士 Miami, FLRegistered User regular
    Looks like they fixed unpacking issues for everyone all at once.

    Generally any class can solo. But this game's end game content is almost all group based. So I would say play what looks most fun to you?

  • Trajan45Trajan45 Registered User regular
    Sounds good. Of course now I have to wait to get in.

    Guess it's not a big deal, it counted down pretty quick.

    What's the deal with character names? Adding numbers to the end of my name, said it was invalid. Do they count numerals as special characters?
