PAX West 2017: Hand of the Gods’ Japanese pantheon and the possibility of 2v2

While the full Hi-Rez portfolio wasn’t in attendance at PAX West, Hand of the Gods was on-hand with a fan tournament as well as machines to introduce folks to the game. Devs were also available to discuss this tactical SMITE spinoff. I sat down with Lead designer Scott Lussier and Executive Producer and VP of Design Scott Zier to talk about the game’s name, its progress, the reception at the convention, and plans going forward.

In fact, one of the tidbits Lussier shared is that the Japanese pantheon is next on the list after Hindu is released later this month.

The Stream Team: A look at life after the big ArcheAge server merges + giveaway

It finally happened: Massively OP’s MJ was uprooted from her ArcheAge server of over three years and tossed onto a new world with a number of other servers’ refugees. She pointedly ignored the big land rush; losing her homes was quite a blow. In fact, losing her homes is the one thing that may keep her from regular play from here on out. Has this move improved things? How populated do things look now? Tune in live at 8:00 p.m. for a look at the post-Evolution landscape (and a chance to win a Trion code for loot in all the games, including Midnight Kitsu in ArcheAge).

Final Fantasy XIV players to host in-game events, charity stream for hurricane relief Saturday

Hat tip to MMO blogger Aywren, who picked up on a Final Fantasy XIV-based Direct Relief charity event “to raise awareness and bolster hurricane relief efforts” — referring of course to Harvey, which ravaged the gulf coast of the US just a few weeks ago, and now Irma, which is already devastating the Caribbean with its sights set on the whole of Florida, never mind Jose behind them.

Streamer denm0 will begin the charity stream on Saturday at 1 p.m. EDT (10 a.m. PDT) and asks players to roll up a potato-themed Lalafell toon to join up with what looks like an airship tour, leveling-up race, march across Eorzea, and a party, all in the service of raising money for disaster relief.

“The starting server is a secret that will be announced at the start of the stream. This way everyone begins at level 1. Getting through MSQ takes about 2-3 hours, so you have plenty of time.”

The Stream Team: Fighting through Secret World Legends’ Darkness War dungeon

Before Massively OP’s MJ can say see ya later to Secret World Legends’ Blue Mountain, she needs to take one more trip into the dungeon. To do that she needs to inhale some pretty suspect smoke from a Wabinaki campfire and enter a dream-like state. Sounds totally legit and perfectly safe right? Tune in live at 8:00 p.m. as MJ dives into the dream dungeon.

Crowfall’s Q&A stream will address skill UI, race-class split, VIP accounts, and respecs

Crowfall, don’t y’all know that Friday is the unofficial industry day to slack off and stream MMOs instead of working, not Thursday? I’m kidding (or am I), at least about the slacking. In fact, Crowfall’s devs are planning to run quite a gauntlet of questions on today’s stream. Instead of just doing their traditional monthly Q&A video, the ArtCraft leads will stream it live instead, bloopers and all. They’re promising, specifically, to:

“Present the new Skills interface and walk through the revised user experience; outline the ‘ripple effect’ of the Race/Class split as it relates to Skill training; address concerns raised about non-VIP vs. VIP accounts; [and] introduce [their] plans for ‘catch-up’ and ‘re-spec’ mechanics.”

Watch along below; it all goes live at noon EDT.

The Stream Team: ARK has launched!

Yes, it actually happened: ARK has finally launched. It’s like the world is ending or something! For those on official servers, their world pretty much did end as the now “legacy” servers won’t receive any more support. But that doesn’t affect Massively OP’s MJ, who runs around on her own, personal server. Have things magically improved? Is the launch optimization actually there? Join us live at 3:00 p.m. to see what amazingness the real launch brings.

The next SMITE adventure is finally here, and Massively OP’s MJ is excited to jump into it. The arena is her favorite part of the MOBA, and this adventure is the Corrupted Arena.

The Stream Team: Apes and dragons in an ARK raid double-header

The latest raid on ARK’s Broodmother went so well that Massively OP’s MJ and the group are excited to take a stab at the other two raids. And instead of waiting a week in-between fights, they will use two sets of raid Rex teams — one for each fight. They will start with the ape boss at the red pillar, then move to the green pillar to fight the dragon. This will be MJ’s first time ever facing the dragon. Will she make it out alive? Join us live at 12:00 p.m. to watch the raid boss double-header.

During her exploration of Conan Exile’s new Frozen North expansion, Massively OP’s MJ saw lights in what looked like windows in the distance up a mountain. She simply has to know what is there!

The Stream Team: Conquering the new bosses in Trove’s Shadow Tower

Last time, Massively OP’s MJ made her maiden trip into Trove’s Shadow Tower. This first visit saw her conquer the first two floors, but she missed getting to the newly introduced bosses that moved in with the Eclipse. Now she’s eager to climb higher in the tower and meet the Hydrakken and the Darknik Dreadnaught. Of course, she’s also looking forward to facing the ultimate boss, Daughter of the Moon Dragon, for the very first time. Join us live at 5:00 p.m. as MJ returns to finish cleaning out the tower.
