    Alpha 1: Earliest Access to Ashes of Creation

    • September 2018 commences


    It does start this month 
  • 3rd week of September
  • From the PaxWest panal, invited Alpha 1 testers will start next week.  Stress Test; which may involve a windmill monster.  hahahhaha
  • Has information gone out to any Braver of Worlds backers personally yet?
  • I haven't received any info and it would be very helpful to know what to watch for (email?  Account page notification?)

    It would also be helpful if people would stop posting wild guesses as if they have some kind of special knowledge.... which obviously they don't when two subsequent posts make clearly different statements.
  • HYPE!!! cant wait to play alpha 1 since i never got into the aplha 0 #FeelsBadMan
  • I am also very excited about this.  So far this game seems to be what my Clannies and I have been waiting years for.  The panel at PAX west was great!

    Not to myself or any of the kickstarter backers I know of yet. Would be nice to know how we will be contacted - most game companies reach out to testers via email but who knows how AOC will handle it. Could be a postcard in the mail sent COD for all the current clarity.

  • Knowledge is power and they for some reason what to still hold onto that power.  I get it, it gets people to come back to the forums and searching online time after time hoping to see some type of update.  It builds hype and increases hits on webpages.  It also starts to grate on people.

    Its so weird though - they engage with audiences at PAX face to face and share a video stream here and there but don't touch their twitter more than once every few weeks  - The pinned post is from months ago. They are forgetting thousands upon thousands of us exist.

    Their social game is so exclusive that they are missing out on so many methods of driving forum and site engagement and they just don't "bother" to let anyone know we should care. All I ever hear is a wet fart unless I go digging for info.

    I'm not even sure that there ARE female playable characters in game, that's how vague this forum is.

    Hopeful my "Alpha 1, earliest alpha access" will finally come into play and I get to break down that wall of exclusivity and discover how inclusive it really is.


  • Just came back to see all this :3 nice
  • Same. Braver of Worlds here and have contacted support because I was paranoid I was missing something. Will update here if I hear back from them.

    Also BoW and i haven't seen anything yet.
  • Going to say that Intrepid Studios has a lot of work to do if they want to release the full game before 2020 (or beginning 2020). Can't wait to see the game after waiting so long for it!
