Community Guidelines & Code of Conduct Greetings and welcome to the Ashes of Creation Community Guidelines and Code of Conduct for the official game forums. When you sign up to use the forums, you automatically agree to adhere to these rules. Therefore, please make sure you know what you’re agreeing to! Don’t worry, there aren’t too many things to worry about and most of these will be common sense.

Don’t Be a Jerk! Pretty self-explanatory. Don’t post personal attacks and do not harass other users or employees of Intrepid Studios. Racist, sexist, misogynist, discussions of rape or brutality, homophobic, and other types of offensive messages may be removed. Posts purposefully trying to “flame” another user will always be removed. This can result in a suspension or ban.

No Personal Information Under no circumstances should you post personal information about yourself on the forums including your address, e-mail address, where you go to school, credit card information, phone number, etc. This also pertains to posting personal information about other people. If posted, this information will be deleted by a moderator. Depending on the nature, this can result in a suspension or ban.

Keep Topics ON Topic Please do not “necro” a thread, cross-post, or post miscellaneous messages to “bump” threads. Keep topics clean, organized, and on the topic they were created for. However, feel free to create new threads if you’d like to talk about something slightly different that doesn’t quite fit with the original thread. If you have questions, always feel free to ask.

WTF & Cursing Cursing is considered pretty normal in MMOs, especially via acronyms like “WTF”. That’s okay and we’re a more seasoned bunch of nerds. Don’t let it get out of hand, though. Moderators have a right to edit or remove posts they feel are too offensive. All posts meant to “flame” or attack another user will be removed no matter what. In some cases, this can result in a suspension or ban.

No Monetary Transactions Under no circumstances will monetary transactions be permitted on the forums. This includes offering or requesting payment for help leveling up, in-game items, alpha/beta keys, artwork for your character, etc. This is simply because we cannot help you if anything goes wrong and certain types of things (such as payment for help leveling) against our game’s terms of service.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words At this time, we are very open to you posting photos on the forums and having your own, unique avatars and signatures. If we start to see inappropriate photos in people’s avatars, signatures, or in posts, we reserve the right to revoke this privilege. Please keep all forum photos PG with no nudity, no excessive violence, no offensive language, no racist/homophobic/sexist imagery, etc. If you want help determining if your photo might not be appropriate, please send an e-mail to our Community team (see below). Questions? Comments? Please e-mail our Community Team at community@intrepidstudios.com for further discussion.

    Hi guys, What an amazing first 3 days with the kickstarter! Our live streams are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 3pm PDT! I just wanted to update you that threads started on these forums with malicious or slanderous intent will not be allowed.  Valid concerns and questions are of course always welcome! But I will be closing and removing any threads that I feel are posted with dishonest intent, or a clear motive to spread misinformation.  We are doing this project out of a pure passion for the genre, and I dont want to give the trolls a voice here. With love, Steven

    Thank you Steve,

    I am really looking forward to Ashes. Though I wish you could create a time machine and send us forward in time so we can have the game released today. :) Nope not trolling just really want to play. :)

    I think some of the crap that was spouted has actually slowed the Kickstarter, which is a crying shame. Having waded through the nonsense on Reddit, any person with half a brain can see this misinformation is clearly malicious.

    Just keep calm and carry on!

    I think thats possible, but I'm sure that if they would release some more gameplay, especially during the kickstarter still here, they would get a much larger influx of backers. Its big now, but people have been craving for more gameplay. Something the crew should consider if they would like to receive more backing on kickstarter.

    Love the marketing strategy with cash back..... Everyone who moans clearly is annoyed they themselves did not think of it. Fellow game dev in UE4, love ya Alpha work so far. UE4 is a nightmare so far for my small team so I can only imagine the task you have before you especially with serialization and deserialization and net code.

    I wish you the best of luck!
