Hello to everyone who likes DM or would like to try it out!
Here's your chance to see how it is, if you haven't already.
This weekend, starting with Friday 31st, we're going to have a huge Fanpach DM party on voobly.
What is the goal?
1)Have lots of people play
2)Get people to experience some DM
3)Have tremendous fun in a fairly balanced game
Yes, it'll be played on the fanpatch preferably, but that is just a guideline to those interested. It's not like forced on you. Just click on the picture in my sig to download it.Fanpatch changes listed here.
If you can, try to bring at least 1 person with you!
I'd like to see the DM rec section flooded with games next weekend
Counting on you guys.
If anyone would like to warm up before the weekend, or to get some fundamental knowledge, either read this, or contact me.
|New aot fan patch team assembly in progress|

|As the title says, I've started an initiative of re-starting the very populat fan patch project.|
The goal is to make a patch that will balance our beloved game out sufficiently so you will be able to play any god, and also have uses for currently useless minor gods.
Now, in the coming months of work there won't be much for you to see, because testing will stay private.
However when we are done, voobly will release our fan patch and make every player in the lounge download it.
I guess this would be the ultimate reason to use voobly.
Just posting this so that you all know about this.
Wish us luck, so we don't die off and split like the former balance team.
|Plan for Voobly Patch Implementation|

I. Introduction and Background
I will try to make this as concise as possible. First, the Bug Fix and the Patch should be addressed directly as they are two separate battles. Notice that I am reluctant to use the term "Fan Patch." Why? A Fan Patch indicates a one-time effort to make improvements to the game, whereas a patch, designed by a balance team, is a periodic endeavor aimed to continually moderate the game--an ongoing effort.
AoT does not need a Fan Patch. It needs a balance team dedicated to creating patches as the meta-game changes with time.
What is the impetus for creating a patch? To reduce/eliminate imbalanced aspects of the game--i.e. those aspects we refer to as "lame;" those aspects/units which are very powerful yet require little skill to invoke/use. No need to go into specifics here.
In summary, any patch for any competitive game has two driving forces--to eliminate bugs and to adjust previously unseen imbalances which have become exploited and abused through the game's development in the competitive arena (i.e. the meta-game).
The last ESO AoT patch came years ago, and in the course of play, all "OP" aspects of the game have been discovered, resulting in a stalemate of strategic development. This is particularly true in the DM community where two gods (out of twelve!) are played by more than 90% of the population. Worse, within these two, Zeus and Isis, the same strategies, with minor variations, are executed game-by-game. A minor strategic development, such as Caleb's exploration of the Hera godpath, is considered ground-breaking, yet in the grand scheme of things, Hephaestus is still heavily favored much in the same way that Osiris is taken nine times out of ten over Thoth.
It is time for balance.
II. Negotiate with Voobly
The staff at Voobly is notoriously busy. Many of you have experienced this when posting complaints about hackers. Believe it or not, Voobly staff live real lives and probably have other projects on which they're …

|As the title says. When i first joined it gave me the impression that this shit is big and really lively, but now it seems the forums are completely dead. Plenty of games constantly running tho, which is good, but it seems that this place has had some action somewhere in the past. What exactly killed all the life in the forums?|
