Valiance Online: Holy shit where did this come from?

30 12 2014

I didn’t write on the anniversary of the COH shutdown. My posts about that could be an endless series that no one wants to read and I don’t want to write. The last one was on its birthday so most that could be said is there. Now to something positive!

While the people of the Titan Network are still setting up their basics the other big project to create a successor reared its head. And promptly hit it on the door frame or something. Valiance’s kickstarter failed but I think it was mostly because no one was quite aware who they are. But they went the right way. They have a playable test build for their project that is open for players now. Which means they provide the most important thing: A place for the community to gather. The game might be almost nothing yet but the look is right and everything else can grow. With some social areas to just hang out this might draw people and make them support them, be it financially or with skill sets. Never underestimate the will of players to build something up.

With at least a basic gathering ground I think their chance to make it in the end is actually better than Titan’s. We should still hope for them both but this is the place I’ll be looking at from here on. And with looking at I mean throw money at. They are looking for donations to upgrade the servers right now. It doesn’t look like they’ll get it all but they got my support. Hopefully with tie more and more people will become involved and want to support it.

And apart from everything else: the place looks great! I love the near future flair they went for.
