Shroud of the Avatar lets players pick Mistrendur locations, unveils new town size

    
23

The latest Avatar’s Update newsletter from Shroud of the Avatar is all about land ownership, for the most part. Whether you’re among those players who are clamoring for some land in Mistrendur or looking for a bigger town to run, there’s a little something for the landowning Avatar to look forward to.

The land rush for Mistrendur that was previously announced on February is now officially underway, with the first bracket having kicked off this past Saturday and six more brackets every three days until April 4th, with Mistrendur site selections provided in order of when reservation vouchers were purchased.

If you happen to already own a town but want something bigger than a Municipality, then perhaps running a Megalopolis is more your speed. This new town size will bring 30 NPC buildings, 50 NPCs, space for 1500 general decorations, and 200 lights, all in a town size of 123,600 square meters. It’s like the ostentatious raid gear of land ownership! The illuminated pauldrons of city operation!

All towns are now moving to an area they call EP2. When any new person joins the game they see a deserted wasteland of Ep1.

SMART!!!!

No lol, only 150 map towns get to move out of the 1000’s. and 150 nested.

Most the ones in the new map are all new with the exception of the few that had transfer tokens. none of the major player towns or markets moved. there will be still lots of activity in ep1.

They also just doubled the number of NPCs you can place per lot.

Meaningless, if Portnip can’t figure out how to draw new players. Double the NPCs for virtually nobody to interact with.

Average 88 players on Steam these past 30 days … https://steamcharts.com/app/326160 … so yeah, all this new land to pick up … and no one to pick it up. LOL. Clown shoes game is clown shoes.

In all fairness, you don’t need to login through Steam, but even if half the players logged in directly (which I doubt), that’s still not very promising. The game got a few things right, but not enough.

Well, here’s the thing. Even if we said it was a 10:1 ratio… in other words 10x as many people used the launcher as Steam, the world’s premier gaming platform… even though that’s completely insane, even if we said that… it’s still under 1000 players! I think clown shoes game is clown shoes is more than justified.

Land rush *game* (perjorative): The intentional reduction in available room to create a wholly unneeded contest between players, many of whom will instantly turn to automated assistance (aka bots), in order to get one of the limited placements available. Usually done with excuses such as avoiding clutter, or having only ‘small housing districts’ available in any town for newcomers. Ensures atrocious behavior, attempts to sell placements for real money, and other unsavory behavior. See also “Dumbassery.”

People who own towns and no one to populate them. Yay.

Fifty ugly NPCs from the uncanny valley with no character, dialogue or personality whatsoever.

There is NPC dialog player system in already phase 1. I can’t wait for Phase 2 where we may get ability to setup quests with item rewards and emotes I hope.

um my town in Ep1 is full lol its been upgraded 4 times already… and its active meaning I dont let people that dont play for more then 14-20 days stay :)

I have another in Ep2 but it will not be a player town but an player adventure zone which is something that they are working on still. basically in a nut shell they will be allowing players to design their own spawned area with quests , dungeons and more…. but its a slow phased release… :( which I will be waiting for it to get there.
