  1. I mean, can you blame them? Can't be a big ego booster for them. 😄
  2. ....should we take this outside? *flexes*
  3. Yes! The Architect Interface has been updated.
  4. Community Helper Applications We are looking to expand our team by taking on some Community Helpers. This role differs from being a Game Master (see below). A lot of players have reached out asking how they can help - well, here it is! A community helper has no official authority in player disciplinary matters, nor access to in-game powers. They are members from the community that are respected, helpful with the player base, and knowledgeable/involved with certain areas of the game (see below for details). If you are an active player and looking to help the Game Masters, please consider applying!

If you're interested, please fill out the application in the link above OR contact any Lead Game Master for any additional questions! Game Master Applications We are also always on the lookout for new Game Masters to join our team. Game Masters, at their core, are player support. Their role is to enforce the Code of Conduct and policies set in place by the Homecoming Team! A Game Master is NOT part of the development team (At present we’re not recruiting additional resources for the development team, but we do hope to open this up later in the year. Please keep an eye on future announcements and we’ll let you know when this changes!). They do not control what is being worked on behind the scenes. If you're the kind of person that is always checking help-chat or the one people turn to for questions, this may be a great role for you!

  5. Yup! You can check out our Privacy Policy here which already specifies an access to chat-logs. These are pulled and reviewed by our Lead Game Masters for any applicants for the purpose of vetting them. Per the policy the data is stored for 30 days (unless its relevant to an ongoing support ticket). This helps us get a better sense of our candidates and their interactions with other players. (Hi Dacy! 😄) It depends on the nature of the contest. If you applied/were brought on as a CH and running an official contest, then no you wouldn't enroll yourself as a contender (including a base you made for someone else). Which is essentially what we're looking for in the role. Someone to help plan and run contests for the community. Also, no. "Giving other players advantages" does not refer to your own personal influence/prizes you handout to others. It refers to using any GM Commands/powers to try and do so. We have a zero tolerance policy for using commands to provide any advantages to any player account (including our own).
  6. Hello my fellow architects! I just wanted to follow up from the post here. Our Dev's Choice selections will be temporarily suspended to give our team a chance to recharge. I highly encourage you to check out the post and (if interested) apply to be one of our AE Community Helpers to assist us in testing and selecting these arcs! All previously posted arcs have been added to our list to review and test. Keep working on those stories, everyone! We look forward to testing them again soon!
  7. Hi everyone! We have some exciting community updates we wanted to share with all of you regarding the following topics. Costume Contests AE Dev's Choice Weekly Discussion Community Helper Applications Game Master Applications If you have no interest in these topics, please continue about your regularly scheduled forum browsing! Costume Contests The Homecoming Costume Contests were designed for us, the Game Masters, to have a fun and exciting way to interact with the community! Continuing to do them every month, we feel has made them a bit mundane. To counteract this, we're going to make an adjustment to how we'll be hosting our official Costume Contests going forward. Costume contests will no longer be held every month. Instead, they will be held four times a year - the dates/themes for which will be announced in advance. The remaining 2021 Costume Contests will be held on the following dates. Saturday, May 15th - 9PM UTC Theme: Anniversary (Any theme or style - bring your best overall) Saturday, July 17th - 9PM UTC Theme: Folklore, Fables, and Fairy Tales Saturday, October 17th - 9PM UTC Theme: Praetorians (Special! 2-player team contest. Come dressed as the primal and praetorian versions of your original character) We will continue to make a separate forum post announcing the Costume Contest and details/examples for that contest at the start of that month. The decision to do Costume Contests this way was made for a few reasons. One reason is this assists our volunteer staff in spreading out their workload - as I'm sure you can imagine, arranging for GMs to cover every shard every month can be a bit challenging due to scheduling conflicts. They often sacrifice time with their families (and are happy to do so), however, we want them to enjoy those weekends as well. In addition (and perhaps primarily) we think they've become a bit too routine. Player attendance has diminished and we wanted to make them special again! Which perfectly segues into my next point. Prizes/changes! MOst importaNtly, be Sure To stick around for thE Results and winners going forward. One never knows what MAy happen at the end of our coStume contests from Here on out. Current Costume Contest Prizes: The 4 runner-up costumes on each shard will win: A permanent golden title: (Theme) Contest Runner-Up The Fashion Victim Badge 150 reward merits 1,000 reward merits 3 Heroes vs. Villains super packs The best costume on each shard will win: A permanent golden title: (Theme) Contest Finalist The Fashion Victim Badge 300 reward merits 5,000 reward merits 5 Heroes vs. Villains super packs The single best overall costume will win: A permanent golden title: (Theme) Contest Winner The Fashion Victim Badge 1,000 reward merits 10,000 reward merits 10 Heroes vs. Villains super packs We look forward to seeing you at our next Costume Contest and we're excited to see what everyone comes up with! AE Dev's Choice, [email protected] and Weekly Discussion (Forum & Discord Editions) Both the AE Dev's Choice and Weekly Discussions will temporarily be suspended to allow our team some extra free time to recharge, give the devs time to catch up on all the feedback, and to re-vamp how we handle the discussions and the AE Choice prizes! We will update you about this again soon. The prizes for [email protected] will temporarily be suspended, but that doesn't mean you can't still help! Join the team and find out more info here.

Thank You Lastly, I just wanted to add a thank you to both our amazing team of Game Masters and Lead Game Masters who relentlessly volunteer their time to keep things running. They frequently give up evenings and weekends to help out the player base and we couldn't do it without them. Also, to you, the players. Homecoming continues to thrive due to everyone who makes this such an amazing game and community to be a part of. Thank you to everyone who helps other players (in-game, discord, forums, etc), to anyone who donates, to those continuing to support [email protected], to those who run MSRs, Incarnates, Hami Raids and all the other weekly contests and events on your shard(s). Thanks for making this the Paragon of the video game community (Hah! See what I did there?). We appreciate you!
  8. It is not. The seeded price will be reset to 25 Million soon. The individual who was going to do it ended up not having time. So if you haven't already, be sure to purchase them soon!
  9. Well done, everyone!! Congrats to our contest winners!
