After four months in the dark, Ashes of Creation’s forums are finally back in the light.
The bizarre ongoing saga of Ashes’ website and forum stretches all the way back to December, when Intrepid Studios was trying to bring a new and improved web presence online. It did not go as planned, and as a result, both the old forums and the promised new ones were AFK for a good long while.
Basically, tech-tech issues: “In switching off of our old website, we had to build a unified login system that could work with the game, the website, and was scalable for the other services we will provide in the future. In addition to this, we needed to let users bring their accounts over that were created on the old WordPress system. For some users this was seamless, but other users were required to change their usernames, passwords, or other information in the process of bringing their account to the new accounts system.”
The good news is that the new forums have arrived, and you can get chatting with your fellow Ash-heads right now!
