    So with DND doing a titanic, I'm forced to look for other options in terms of entertainment... ROA actually looks decent, and with my ultra-casual playtimes nowadays, I'd appreciate the insta-travel systems ROA has actually.

    With that said, I got no idea about the progress of the game so far, what's changed etc.
    But more importantly, is there anybody actually playing ROA now? How alive is it?

    Also, what's keeping players from the game atm?

    If you are the real xipos/mycke, the game is dead, no one is playing, devs inactive, nothing to see here, please leave, kthxbai.

    Currently there are a lot of ND players coming over so their numbers are kinda scattered as they don't have citys yet it'll be interesting once they join in on the sieges. But for the general ROA people there are basically 3 alliance with a good amount of smaller clans. The 3 alliance are Blackwater/Legion/Rats/Drifters (40-60), Defiance (30-40), and The Third Army, Battle Saints, some other clans can't remember (25-35). The Blackwater/Legion/Rats/Drifters are pretty inactive in daily PvP except for their italians/chinese players and a few here and there. Defiance is extremely active all day and so is the Third Army alliance. Village ports are where most of the bigger pvp happens which happen every 30min while hot spot mob spawns are where the 1-3 man groups normally go.

    We've been seeing some stable growth for the past few months, with a big growth spurt with our freemium soft launch with lots of new players to roa. We expect with our next patch and some external marketing, we should see another spike of players.

    I saw those 2 help run unholy shit into the ground, don't want the risk of them doing the same to any other game. No idea if they helped run ND into the ground too, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Mycke? Like actual book seller guy Mycke? Fancy meeting you here. Go to the official wiki and check out the beginner guide. Videos there that explain newbie shit but also explain some RoA stuff you may not have known about. Also, https://www.riseofagon.com/game/player-pages/veteran-player/ if you want to pour through patch notes.

    I always wondered if his dome got blown off when he went into the military. He sorta just disappeared.

    Sounds like something xipher or mycke would say.

    But if you are not either of them, then my sincerest apologies to you.

    I thought I recalled a DND post where Xipos revealed that he was indeed, Xpiher. Let’s see how deep the rabbit hole goes....

    Worst part is, if I recall, Xpiher had a HoMM 3 hero icon for his avatar. How could a HoMM player be so retarded, I shall never know.

    Hey man. Yeah ROA offers a really enjoyable version of DF imo. I've been and still am playing ATLAS since its launch, but just waiting to come back to DF.
    PvP is a little off, in favour of heavys and destroyers when I last played, but I honestly felt that, considering every other change made to the game, things were actually really good.

    It's probably even more perfect for starting off again here right now as a lot of vets are on a burnout cooldown from playing the whole time (I think many play Apex atm).
    So you can get a lot of bank building and glorious pve grinding done with not TOO much PvP denying you, but just enough to enjoy it all in balance.

    It's highly likely that absolutely everyone will be back for the territory expansion / Embers of War patch, whenever it drops.



    P.S.
    Don't join Defiance. Scumbags of the server (rebuilding walls during a siege, telling GM's to fuck off when they come to fix it - rebuilding the walls a second time in front of him.. just because they didnt want to lose it so badly. That type of mentality)

    I'm surprised they let someone that autistic into the military. They must really be hurting for recruits.
