You know you're doing something right when...

the Technical Director of the game you are playing accuses you of exploiting... and you aren't ;)

I personally think the exploit mentioned is not really that strong, because you basically have to keep life-tapping while all damage you receive goes into your shield draining your mana big time.

So this renders you basically unable to cast any attack skills. Not very desireable.

So what did I do?
Maybe I just played the game as I think it is intended. I prepared with buffs, food, devotionals, I use crafted gear, top notch artifacts and got a balanced deck with CC & CC breaks.

What did they use? PVE decks, which they were unable to swap to a PVP deck apparently.

You should not flag PVP if you don't want to get attacked. PERIOD.

Atos of course realized that I played legit and was nice again ;)
Although I could feel his smile when he killed me once in the Blood Bay aftermath.

After coming to the game as a big fan of Lord British and Starr Long, I have to say Chris became the man I have faith in, making Shroud of the Avatar a great game. Keep it up Chris...

and I got what I wanted for my shrine:


  1. Yes, Chris is the man I have faith in too. Hes the one who can make PvP great.

    I love youre blogging Vollo, get out that sensitive side. Keep it up

Banned again for hurting a Dev's feelings...

Apparently contradicting a developer is now a bannable offense. Especially if it is factual and he can't come up with a rebuttal. ;)

Rick Holtrop wrote me a letter again that I was banned for being combative and contradicting a developer. So cute, as this has never been a violation according to their community guidelines.

Next up he fails to elaborate on how it is combative to tell someone who was apologizing for mentioning the Master of the Forge charity, that he doesn't need to apologize as his post didn't violate any rules. Which it didn't since mentioning or questioning the charity wasn't yet forbidden either, before Darkstarr needed to threaten people with warnings if they mention the charity.

I guess most of us just have to take a look at some of the Dev's Twitter or other social media accounts to get a clue where this behavior is coming from. Some of them became pure left wing collectivist. There is hardly a difference between a National Socialist or a …

SotA Release and Q2 Outlook...

As someone who has over 5000 hours into SotA testing it, I must say the game releases with a solid foundation to build on... Even though it obviously still is managed by people who not only seem to have zero connection to gamers nowadays, but also to common sense.

But let's stay on the game. The last Releases clearly shifted the game towards a more group-oriented gameplay. Not only self sufficiency is likely to go away, grouping for the first time feels worth it and actually can yield better results pretty early in the game and even later - depending on your builds.

Coming with that I am glad to see finally Portalarium realizes that their lack of "repeatable" content aka endgame content is something they need to solve within the first 3 months of release. Combining that with the promised Castle Siege mechanics, that can and likely will be used to improve Control Points as well is a step towards generating conflicts and a major driver for people to get engaged.

Archery needs love. What Chris needs to do...

Long time no post...

But boy SotA hasn't been boring. PK action picked up quite a bit with increasing player numbers post release, and flattened a little bit with the latest decrease in player numbers. But I can say I never made more money PKing, especially with the newer bounty ruleset. Pushed 3 Videos in 2 Releases so far... Good times.

Interesting enough some of the old guilds came back and some new transitioned over from Mortal Online.. however the older ones seem to be turning their backs again right away, after seeing they cannot get a foot into PVP anymore.
Which is sad, SotA desperatedly needs to give options for low level and casual oriented Players that maybe don't want to risk the ransom when playing alone, but maybe take part in more structured conflict in a group, where the risk of losing is smaller and can be mitigated.
Right now everyone has to compete with the best, and that leads to a lot of frustration for casuals or returning players. Factions...

But let&#…
