    Arkenstone Lives!

    Our server has survived the cut and has been announced as one of the Final Five.

    As a Founder and an 8-year Ark veteran I've got to say this pleases me greatly.

    Congratulations Arkenstone!

    OK, as the remaining server with the lowest (current) population/logins, you're looking pretty good!

    But I need you to help me out here. What does Arkenstone have to offer us migrants?

    1. How's the AH?
    2. How's the PvMP?
    3. Anything else we should know about? Player led events? RP? Other?

    Thanks!

    I assume the state of any and all of these will change substantially with an influx of new players. I'd say Arkenstone is kind of greenfield at the moment - it will be come what the population makes of it.

    Hi fellow Fin !
    we expect that every question you listed will have a different answer once the transfers kick in .
    Ah atm is mostly cap level stuff
    the pvp is mostly creep heavy earlier in day , and by 8pm est ad on is when we have most freeps on to take on and have action ( most freeps tent to be casuals) ...been very active since new map ..some players gaining 70k infamy a week (mp)...hopefully transfer will increase the number and periods of action around the day
    there are kins that are more into events that include people within our outside their kins
    there's core of players that running the new t2c content, we expect to welcome more people to do so with the transfers


    if any interested in a pvp kin i would recommend Ascension , we are experienced mature players that mainly pvp !

    Then I must be incredibly unlucky, because every time I've signed in for the past year (mostly USA evening times, with some wekeends) I hardly saw any freeps, sometimes no freeps. I gave up.

    I tried again just for the heck of it a few days ago and saw maybe 3 freeps, 2 of which were in the safe area (not sure what that's called).

    Hopefully for those who stay here the action will pick up, but I suspect most who transfer to Ark will be the pve folks looking for the lowest pop server. The pvp players and the raiders are, I'm guessing, going to want a server with a higher population. At least there will be more players everywhere, and that's a good thing unless you're looking for a single-player lotro game.

    takes more than a day to know the pattern of ark pvp action, yeah some days ppl need to sleep and work or go do pve ...but ask this mp gaining 70k points a week..they far more active

    and before new map, only took m 3 months to get rk from r0- to r10..playing mostly day time roaming...so ..not at bad as you think

    I said every time within the last year. It was a lot more than a day.

    If Ark is great for USA daytime players then hopefully the server will get more of those. Some of us aren't home during the day and are restricted to evenings and/or weekends.

    All I can say is that Ark has always had good pvp to even at one pt, better pvp them 95% of other servers. Them were the days. Now, pvp is still good. Like Fin had alrdy said. Differnt times for many folks but, for those of us who are full time creeps. We know when and where to find our food. 70k per week is still good IMHO but, when I get 7-8k on my 1 creep, I'll alt to another one. On 3 main creeps I play. I can get up to 20-25k inf.

    AH.... Creeps have a AH now? jk. I let someone else who knows better take that.

    I logged in a couple weeks ago - Friday night? maybe Saturday? can't remember. Was a team of creeps, maybe 8-10, and 6 freeps that eventually dwindled to 2, then 1, then none. Which is exactly how I remember it the time before when I logged in. And pretty much what I remember of the last 6-9 months.

    I may be coming back, Gassy. Maybe we could get a Girl's Night put together again. Arkenstone always had the most fun female pvpers.

    I'll still have at least a couple of creeps here I'm sure, but are there enough females for a ladies' night? Might have to wait a few weeks/months.

    Yes, the routine I normally do on the pvp server forums is to create traffic. Ive tried to explain that to people many times. *shrug* people believe whatever they want.

    It was post 2147. Now there are people on this server who should be perm banned but aside from that most everyone freepside has been nice to me. Granted they didnt know they were dealing with the forum persona "Thorgrum" but thats not important. What is important is freepside is welcoming and condusive to inclusion. Even the cheater is helpful mostly. Creepside, meh, blood hand were just cool people in general, most of them. The other tribes on the server I found to be not only less than friendly but nearly hostile.

    The forums on this server suck because a lot of these clowns have been playing with each other for so long. Need more vitriol to spur more competition, otherwise its just a fight club which, dont tell anyone but Arkenstone has (or did).

    I'll be back to the thorgrum show later. For now Im going to be respectful and let Ark enjoy its win without my color commentary.
