Get Guild Wars 2 Path of FireUnless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have noticed that two Guild Wars 2 developers were cut loose last week after a heated Twitter exchange that was initiated by narrative lead Jessica Price. What started off as welcome insight into the problems with player-character narrative development in MMOs turned into a PR horror show when the dev felt slighted by a comment received in response to her musing. The internet is alight with opinions on the drama and ArenaNet’s response to the comments made by Price and her coworker, so in this edition of Flameseeker Chronicles, I just had to address it myself. Context behind the Twitter debacle I literally don’t have the space to go over the entire Twitter debacle that got two employees fired here in all its intricacies or else I’d end up with a short book on the matter. I’ll provide a very brief TL;DR here, however, for those who haven’t managed to follow along … [Read more...] about Flameseeker Chronicles: Unpacking Guild Wars 2’s PR nightmare

They come with a significant number of templates to use and, most importantly, their simple drag and drop feature has eliminated the necessity of any coding knowledge. Thus, armed with these page builders, anyone without any HTML or CSS knowledge can design attractive websites easily. Here, we’re going to compare three well-acclaimed page builders: Beaver Builder Thrive Content Builder Visual Composer The main factors we’re going to look at are: Features Add-ons Working Procedure Price Pros and Cons So let’s take a closer look at each factor to decide which one fits your requirements the best.

It’s been a weird week in MMO crowdfunding. The Codename Reality Kickstarter isn’t looking good; devs have raised under 2% of their original half a million dollar goal. Project Oasis World is over this week too, well under its goal. EverFeud‘s Kickstarter has already been canceled, as that studio says it’ll hunt for other options. As for Endless Trials, that Kickstarter has also ended abruptly; team Fire Hurts says it’ll try a fresh campaign with a video at some point in the future. AdventureQuest 3D, however, has already seen outrageous success with its Kickstarter for… plushies. For real. As I type this, the game is four times over its goal. Plushies are happening. Meanwhile, Pathfinder still isn’t dead, Elite Dangerous’ next big thing will launch at the end of August, SOTA is hard at work on player-created dungeons, Dual Universe updated its roadmap, Camelot Unchained is working on its 64-bit client, Ashes of … [Read more...] about Make My MMO: Two canceled MMO Kickstarters and two languishing, but plushies for the win (August 18, 2018)

First off we are going to start this post with me flooding you with a big damned image. Last night I managed to cobble together a set on the storm that tips the scale over to Masterwork, meaning that I now have all four lancers to that level. To make it better… I am using very few of the general purpose masterwork inscriptions… I believe I have one on the Storm and one on the Interceptor. The Colossus and Ranger are what I would consider to be in a state of a proper build that I actually want to keep playing. The Ranger is by far the most tuned and I love the whole double detonator thing because it allows me to prime with either Ralner’s Blaze or more often the case my Melee and them BOOMY BOOM BOOM! The Interceptor and Storm are both trying to find workable builds… I love Ten Thousand Suns that I got last night on the Storm so that is likely going to stay. At this point I have put one hundred and seventy four hours into … [Read more...] about Ignoring the Boycott
