    Will there be any systems in place to make it so nodes not near the gateways have a chance at becoming Metropolises? Without anything in place I imagine that the initial swarm of players in the first days/weeks will lead to higher traffic in said areas, causing rapid growth that further nodes can't compete with.

    This would be: Node Sieges

    Will Ashes of Creation have a good system for dealing with bots and gold sellers? All modern MMOs I play now are swarming with them and it seems as if different dev teams are having trouble dealing with this problematic behavior.

    Can we get attacked by other players while in a node's center?

    "Players cannot PvP while inside (the footprint of)[1] a freehold (except following a successful node siege).[2][3]
    Players are not able to be attacked or robbed while occupying their player stall inside the limits of a node.[4]

    Freehold and Player Stall are safe. Everywhere else, you're fair game.

    Lots of great questions, went through so I wouldn't ask a repeat but I think you guys asked most of my questions :) . But I do see a few posts about the corruption system: specifically players asking about being the bad guys (like pirates or bandits) and how that will work for corruption. So my question is:

    "Will players have the ability to play the bad guy without actually killing or stealing items from other players and using the corruption system? For example, 1 player has to escort an NPC and another is tasked with killing said NPC"

    I mean without some kind of other mechanics, since the defender has a clear advantage, I could easily see Metropolis nodes being located near starting areas.

    My guess is though, it will probably be beneficial to level a node to level 6 that is closer to "high value" materials, which my guess is will not be located near starting areas. So it will be on the players to coordinate ahead of time.

    Also, I could see high level players needed to level past a certain stage, and higher-level players able to contribute quite a bit more to node progress.

    Character Naming: Will we have spaces, special characters (ie. Umlaut characters such as Ö ) and a larger character limit?

    Built in systems dont always work. I look at New World currently, where bots can get to max level and keep doing their thing for a long time before "the system" gets them, if at all.

    Question: In addition to the https://ashesofcreation.wiki/Security_systems, will there be in game GM's who could be more proactive in assisting players and dealing with bots/cheats?

    Will Ashes of Creation have a Guild Storage system? If so will guild leaders be able to make maybe a "Crafter" Role that allows specific Crafters to enter the guild storage?

    Hello, I wanted to know if summoner/ranger will be able to collect rare summons/companions, whether that be in the form of a raid boss like summon or a unique elite animal companion that you would need to tame in the wild.

    Hey it's my first time commenting something, but I have a burning question, which is, could we get any further elaboration on the Visual customization of crafted weapons, as it was once in 2017 "teased" that it is a possibility.

    en. Visual customization like in Mortal Online 2 where, let's say for crafting a sword, you can select between multiple hilts, blades, crossguard, pommel etc. to get a sword to look how you want it to?

    If this was not yet considered, or thought about, I would consider this a possibility to make the weaponsmith and/or armorsmith a more lucrative life skill, to get people to not only want to do animal husbandry or taming as you are "advertising" it as such an in depth and cool system

    When a new mmo launches there is often the case that servers will be very full and after a few weeks a decent chunk of the playerbase will move on. This can lead to some servers having small populations. Will there be server merges or other measures to make it so everyone will play on populated servers?
  • How possible would it be to play as a seafaring captain and not just do ocean boss fights/ merchant runs. Secondly what might you compare the ship sailing to game wise if there is a good comparison currently. Thanks!
  • In Alpha 1 there were passive skill trees that varied based off of your primary archetype. Will your secondary archetype selection effect which passive skills you can apply skill points to?

    Example: if I create a mage/tank will my passive skills tree open the ability for me to put points into damage mitigation, which wasn't an option for primary archetype of mage by itself?

    About corruption :
    If a player decide to attack someone (let's say to defend his grinding spot from someone just tagging mobs) and that intruder doesn't fight back in purpose, does he still get corruption and how bad could it be for that player ?
    In other words is it not possible that this corruption system will be abusable by people who want to force others into getting corruption just to take advantage on the next fights ?

    A little scroll down the Security Systems page shows the following:
    "Game masters (GMs) will be present and active on Ashes of Creation servers.[5]"

    It's almost like I linked it for you for a reason... ;):D
  • There is concern that the animal husbandry system is to deep and complex, was this depth always planned and can we expect the same for other artisan professions.
  • Will there be something like a marriage/relationship option/system? If so, does this have any kind of limitation at all? can you marry anyone regardless of the character's race or gender?(I hope so, and not for me, but for others actually, lol)

  • Can you talk about how the devs plan on handling enchanting visual effects? For me I loved it in MMO's where once you put an enchant on your weapon the Visual effect stood out visually, blood dripping from the blade, a bright glow after gathering glowing shards etc. Too many games drop the ball on this, is this something Ashes plans to focus on when it comes to the enchanting profession? Thank you

    Will corruption be compounding, as in even if you work off corruption, does your next instance of corruption become more severe?

    EDIT: Found the answer in an interview with Asmon while steven was driving to Los Vegas.
  • At the start of A2, how many continents and starting zones will there be?

    What are plans for ship combat? Will there be a possibility to impede the ship by targeting specific parts? Chain shot into the sails, shoot specific planks to sink it faster, grapeshot to damage crew before boarding?
  • Hey guys! Wondering how you'll be able to mitigate bots in AoC. I've seen so many MMOs go down in flames due tot he botting problem. Having a private studio is great, as you don't have any shareholders to show sub numbers to, but curious about how you will handle bots that see an opportunity to sell gold, or people selling runs for gear. Thanks!

    Will alpha 2 be in Late Q2 or in Q3?
