The video I reacted to from Ryve:
What is Ashes of Creation?

Ashes of Creation is a unique take on the MMO experience. Our world structure is dynamic and built to react to the actions of our players. Cities will rise and fall, their populations based on the history of the world as the players create it. Quests will unlock as these populations gather, their needs grow, and secrets are unlocked. As the world’s NPC structure is established in real time, players will have the ability to destroy what they’ve created, paving the way for new development, new populations, and real change. Political strife and intrigue will play a very real role in the structure of your world. Gone are the days of static worlds, change is here to stay.

Risk Vs Reward
All across Verra, you have the opportunity to experience massive warfare, participate in epic trade caravans, and gather valuable components to craft exquisite items. Not only will your fellow players be your adversaries; the creatures of the land and the very environment itself will pose a constant and fresh challenge. Will you siege castles to become royalty, defeat other guilds to showcase your prowess, shape the marketplace by being a successful trader, or earn renown by developing your artisan crafting skills? This is your story, you tell us!

  1. Thanks for watching the video Vlhadus!
    Agree that Riot is WAY overhyped considering we haven't seen anything yet.
    I agree as well that many who are playing WOW and FFXIV are ready for something different. I've been there for a long time myself, I have a hard time playing the traditional Themepark MMOs these days.
    I love reaction Fridays, keep doing them brother!

  2. The problem with the MMO genre, as a whole is that it comes with huge expectation from the community.

    My opinion is that most people compairs every mmo with World of warcraft, as a finished product, after like 3 years of realease, at the end of wow Vanilla. like look at the realease of world of warcraft, it was horrible, buggs, half fínished classes and so on.

  3. You in particular don't over hype aoc. I'm a developer and I watch your content for YOU not ashes, I'm actually not a massive fan, though I have many opinions on it and I want it to do well. You're more reigned in than most fanboys or dedicated gamers, as you said, desperate for new games.

  4. I don't see my excitement for the game as anything more than that…excitement. To me the term hype denotes an unrealistic expectation that either can't, or won't be delivered upon. With Ashes we get a monthly live-stream…so we see the progress. We see them make promises and then deliver upon those promises. This is not hype as I define it. Again, this is being excited about what they have already delivered to us, and what the ultimate promise of the game will be assuming they keep meeting their goals and our expectations. Now if they were Star Citizen or Chronicles of Elyria and to this point had consistently failed to meet expectations and it was clear that the game was either a scam or infected by never ending scope creep then the word hype would apply. And it would certainly apply if the had showed nothing, kept making unrealistic promises and yet you have a large portion of the community who's excitement for the game is so delusional that it never wanes. None of this is the case and we all see it with our own two eyes each month in the live-streams.

  5. Appreciate all the AoC content you make. In general, as long as content contains some critiques and concerns I think we can avoid OVERhype. Gotta be realistic with game expectations. You do a good job with that.

  6. I'm fine with overhyping at this point. I mean what do we have got to lose?
    People will be disappointed? It's a sub game. If you don't like it from the get-go, unsub and move on.
    Will it be bad for the game to overhype it? I think not, it needs to reach the other gamers who doesn't want to just be on treadmill of dailies and PvE of theme park
    MMORPGs and gamers who are in to other genres like fps and fighting games. Let's face it, those who have heard of ashes are in the minority (mmorpg fans) like us, heck, even mmorpg fans haven't heard of ashes yet.
