Also, vikings are way cooler than Lancasters, Yorkists, ninjas and pirates all together.  ;)

No, Vikings are the most over-hyped warriors in history along with the Spartans and Samurai  :D
Jedi's are way cooler than vikings!  now don't tell me they didn't exist, cause it says in that documentary they did, a long, long time ago!

nothing would beat jedi zombies!!!

Quote from: TotalyMoo;16013303
Greetings!


I'd like to remind you that everyone playing the War of the Vikings Alpha has agreed to an NDA.

You will find the document here.

Please read and understand this before you play the game.

A basic tl;dr is: you're not allowed to post anything about the Alpha in public forums - like this - without our express permission.


Everything that breaks the NDA will be instantly deleted.



For posting about War of the Vikings Alpha - please go to our closed SteamHub here.

Or register your Alpha key and go to the closed Paradoxplaza Alpha Forum.

Please note that for the people who already owned WotR and got access instantly via steam - there are not yet any keys available and you can not see the plaza section. We will update you as soon as we have added keys to your accounts.


Regards,
John


Please note that when you agree to an NDA this will usually mean:
  • the fact that you have agreed to an NDA is covered under the NDA
  • The fact that you are testing/part of teh alpha/part of the beta/or whatever the NDA is for, is covered under the NDA
  • Any information about the game that you have derived from the alpha is covered under the NDA
  • Any screenies etc that you take (which should only be done for reporting purposes) is covered under the NDA

The NDA on this never runs out.  All these items remain under NDA even after the game is released.

You may talk publically about an knowledge you gained under this NDA only after that specific piece of knowledge has been made publically available by Paradox.  In other words only when the knowledge could have come to you via a public channel from Paradox.  If you are in any doubt at all you should ask.

Reminder: If you got five people to click your link and got into the alpha, I assume you are not supposed to report on game features here. Please keep that in mind when posting.

Interestingly enough, there are people that got Alpha without doing that referral thingy, just by owning WotR (my friend didn't even play it often, and he still has Alpha of WotV).

Didnt they give alpha access to all who owned the extra voice thingy (called Kingmaker or something)? Thought i read something about that.

Not in case of my friend. And he played WotR for only 1-2 times because he has oldish PC.

I've seen mentions of how WotV combat mechanic is so much different from WotR, but I have yet to get any explanation why or how. So far, it looks as if it's the same game in a different skin and still has that dreadful perk system. True, they plan on implementing customizable beards, which is a huge improvement, but just not enough to get me interested yet.

You gather up speed and move in a more fluid way than in WoTR, and you also have a stamina bar that allows you to run. In melee there are special attacks that can instakill if succesful and also a dodging system that allows you to quickly evade (in 4 directions)

So the gameplay is a lot faster than WoTR.

WotR can't cope with the top speeds it has so is WotV able to cope with faster?

I find this game really frustrating. Character seems heavy and fast at the same time really confusing

I feel it handles quite well. Swingspeed of weapons increase if you release the swing when the "swingpowerbar" is fully loaded and also deal the most damage. It only stays fully loaded for a very short time (feels like somewhere 0.8-1.2 seconds.)

As I already se alot of improvements gameplay/feel vice over wotr im possitive the quite long time wotv has to release will polish it further and has potentital to become great  :)

BEASTLIEST & BESTEST BEARD COMPETITION
Are you so excited for War of the Vikings that your face has become covered by a forest of coarse hairs? No worries - in common tongue it's called a beard and the Vikings and Saxons were pretty fond of them back in the day!

With this in consideration we are hereby launching the BEASTLIEST & BESTEST BEARD Competition - or the BBBC in short.

We challenge you, the community, to grow the beastliest and most awe inspiring beard or mustache humanly possible - inspired by the Vikings and Saxons from the old days.

Share an image of your beard (see rules) on our Facebook page and/or WotV SteamHub with the tag #BBBC included in the image description. Then get your friends, family and facial-hair-fans to vote for you so that you can win the grand prize and forever digitally glorify your creation!

The five facial hairs that get the most up-votes/likes will be reviewed by a jury of impartial experts from Fatshark and Paradox Interactive and TWO winners will be selected - one Viking and one Saxon.

The amazing prize that both winners will receive is to have YOUR beard/mustache modeled by the artists at Fatshark and added to War of the Vikings as one of the many

beards in the character editor - making it possible for anyone who plays the game to wear your facial hair and pretend to be as awesome as you!

As if that is not enough the two winners will also receive a Valhalla edition of War of the Vikings each.



RULES:
* The five beards with the largest amount of TOTAL likes and up-votes will be selected for jury judgement
* You need to have liked our page on Facebook
* Any decoration and modification is allowed, braids, beads, swords - whatever you want!
* You can only upload your image once at each location, a total of two (fb+steamhub) - you are then free to Share the image as much as you want
* Your image needs to be posted here and/or on the War of the Vikings Early Access SteamHub ARTWORK section
* The image needs to contain the tag #BBBC in both the description and actual image (written on a paper, on your forehead, braided into your epic facial hair etc.)
* The beard in question needs to be your own
* The winner of the competition needs to be able to provide us with images that shows the winning beard from the front and both sides
* Once the competition has concluded we will contact the winners via either Steam or Facebook, we reserve the right to change winners if we do not get a response within reasonable time
* You do NOT need to own WotV to participate, but doing so lets you post your contribution to SteamHub increasing your chance to win


This competition will run until January 15th, 2014.


Best of luck!

Regards,
The War of the Vikings Team
