Staff Appreciation Saturday

Since Intrepid has Fan Appreciation Friday I thought it would be nice to do something for them.
I honestly dont think people take into consideration how much pressure is on the team. Yes, they love their job, but the pressure is there all the time, and yes, all of them fit nicely in the cogs that move the wheels.
The best way I know to relate this is imagine Steven and his team all holding a small pick axes with Mt. Everest behind them....Now, go mine that mountain down to nothing....and you have 1.5-2 years to do it.
So I want to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone on the team, be it the new comers or the intial veterans for what they are doing and what they will do in the future for all of us.
So, show them a kind word if you will!

Addendum: I want to keep this thread going every Saturday or Sunday for people who can't get to the pouter on Saturday. By this I intend for us if you feel it merited to call out a specific thank you to someone. Be it Jeff, Bacon, or maybe a shout out to the person who did the coloring on a new piece of armor, creature design, environmental art, etc. Even though we may not know their name. This is just giving something back to them for our appreciation.

    This is a lovely post Balrog c: Im sure itll put a smile on their faces
  • @Alluring I sure hope it does, and thanks!
  • Thanks Ashes Team. For pioneering 21st Century MMO design and development. I think this game is going to make waves in the industry.
  • Was thinking lately how the game is looking a lot better than I envisioned it to be way back in kickstarter.
    It is really comming together. Great Work! And thanks for keeping in touch with community really exciting to see Alpha 1 around the corner.

    Community expectations, is that the pressure you were referring to? ;)

  • Thank you for all the hard work!
  • Thanks to all devs and steven in particular funding the game from his own pocket so we can enjoy a great mmorpg <3

    Also thanks to the moderators for being based and neutral not powertripping, being biased or taking sides. Also really appreciate that freedom of speech is prevalent not banning people for some silly banter.
  • Thank you intrepid!
  • Thanks heaps Intrepid! Thanks for:
    • Really taking a good crack at this problem - it's a behemoth task and I'm so impressed at what you've done already! And we're still in (~pre) alpha! Go Team!
    • Caring about the quality of what you're making - that you are willing to rewrite whole parts of the game system when it's necessary
    • Your transparency with us, and your wisdom in filtering our feedback - that you guys give us cool insight into your progress, your thoughts/decisions and taking the time to ask us questions
    • Your patience with our impatience - cos internet fights happen, even in theorycrafting
    • Your efforts to stay true to your promises - the way you guys are delaying things in the schedule and holding off on making empty promises

    Thankyou for the sleep you've lost over this - but as much as I can't want to explore Verra, I want you guys to be happy, healthy and loving the work that you do! Don't sacrifice yourself for the game in short term, coz I'd way prefer if AoC lives a long life and flourishes under your honest decisions.

    And thankyou mods and community managers for holding the freedom in these social spaces! Dealing with all our strange personalities :p
    I wish I were deep and tragic
  • Thank you, Intrepid 👍😁💓

    Thank you IS for making this wonderful MMO with your own philosophies. It takes guts and vision to hold firmly to your beliefs to get this far and seek for much more. We believe in you!

  • Thanks XD
  • I added an addendum to the original post, and thanks to everyone who posted! Steven commented and I'm sure he will let the team know about it.
  • This mmo is a dream for so many people, I will be forever grateful to Intrepid and specially Steven for taking this decision in his life. We even have a forum to post our silly opinions and be heard.

    From the bottom of my heart thank you IS.
  • To continue with the intention of this thread, this Saturday I would like give a huge shout to Jeffrey Bard for all the hard work he's done, and to the artists and modelers and colorits who did the level 20 armor set we saw in last months stream!
    Thanks and keep up the great work!
  • Big Thank you for doing this project.
    The MMORPG genre needs this.
  • Thank
