Lux Arcana Future Plans

Postby Belteyn » Fri Sep 28, 2018 9:44 am

Hi folks

I know many of you visit these forums regularly and see little activity :(

The two main reasons for this are:

  1. We are not playing any big MMOs at the moment
  2. Many people prefer to use Discord for day-to-day chat

However, Lux as a community (and our Elders) are still very much alive :D

Future MMOs

As we all know there has been a real lack of good MMO releases in the last couple of years. But hopefully that is about to change. There are quite a few promising new games (hopefully) due for release in 2019/20, a few of which are definitely contenders for new Lux Divisions - provided they actually deliver what they are promising.

Having taken feedback from members, we now have a poll HERE

New Website

While Discord is definitely preferred by many for day-to-day chat, I still believe a website is important when we recruit for new games and for more detailed content. So the good news is a replacement for this site is being developed and should be ready in the next year(ish). This will be a non-forum based website with lots of cool features.

In the meantime, 99% of guild activity will be on Discord, so please join us there:

Discord: Invite Link

Note: You also need to request MEMBER access on Discord to see Member channels.

Finally, if any new players reading this are wondering why you can't register on these forums, that is because New Registrations are currently disabled and will not be re-enabled until the new website is ready.

Thank you

Great to hear Belt, must admit apart from 'Pantheon' and 'Shroud of the Avatar' nothing on the list on Discord interested me much, but looking forward to seeing guildee's in the future somewhere but even more to the new website.

Can we have a SNUGGLES category please?

New website needs a tiny link to a screenshot of this forum, for nostalgia. :)

Thanks, Belt. I'm still here, grizzled and older, not much wiser, but looking forward to exploring strange new worlds together again. It seems like several generations since the golden days of Vanguard. Too many cheap and unsatisfying MMOs over recent years, but some tasty ones coming along next year. Hear you on Discord sometime soon. :D

Heeeelllllooooooooooooo!

Pop in from year to year!!

how is everyone?

Not managed to find anything drawing since EQ2/Vanguard. While one or two like Conan and guild wars 2 had a bit of draw it just didn't pull me in like those before!

Is that time of year and looking to see what could be of interest.. The biggest thing I miss is the people played with!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Shamina!

Yes I agree the MMO space has been a bit empty in the last 5 years or so. We had a lot of fun in Black Desert Online for a while but since then nothing much, with New World being a big let down along with Crowfall. Lots of MMOS still in development many years after promised released but with little seeming to happen e.g. Pantheon, Start Citizen etc... Personally, my money is currently on Ashes of Creation being our best hope for the future.

I recently started small Lux division in Mortal Online, but lots of development failures have lead to massive population slump and exodus from the game. Was always a niche game type for Lux, but a shame it hasn't delivered.

I also recently dipped back into Conan Exiles, although just playing solo and on pvp server. Tried to get larger group together for official or priovate server couple of years go but little interest.

Anyway, hope life is treating you well. Join Lux Discord if you haven't already. Pretty quiet, but will be the place where I post any news about next MMO that looks a good fit... as I said, mostly likes Ashes.. but we'll see.

Cheers

ohh lots of truths there!!! :)

oh my Start Citizen! I recall early buy in and still waiting for the full thing lol, remember the joke that would never be full out.. Not sure will have enough of a machine by that time hehe
And remembered did try elite and just did not do it for me. Was a major let down and found it a pain to play. Maby should have forced myself to play for a few months but after plenty flying/space sims it was just ridiculously picky, and pity as had played the original elite to death and clocked it multiple times and loved it.

Life is going ok. Supa busy having to complete a house extension myself due to thieving roofers leaving job half done and the prices of things have gone insane :( also still working on complete overall of garden so can grow a lot more and this is part of the new line of work.. got tied of corporate so started out own business, been a bit slow to start due to lots of delays and still trying to get word out, on the good side we are seeing people loving the goods so hope when they next have budget refresh we should see a nice growth :) Actualy busy doing prep for our 1st market sale so should be a good way to get a good many more people to know about us..

Whats the discord details?
