This week from the
Paradox Gaming Network
There are a lot of things going on with Archeage right now, but sadly not everything we want we aren’t going to get. We are currently in the middle of the Tundra Fishing event, and when this event ends we are going to be moving into the Valentine’s Day event. What we aren’t getting is the New Year's event, which is sad because that would have brought with it some niceties.
Big thing coming with the Valentine’s day event is a couple of Titles, which is important given the rarity and difficulty of getting that elusive title XP. Once the event goes live, I will be knocking out my usual AA101 video on all the details. What I can tell you is that this event will generate a lot of Gilda Stars just from doing the event.
Both of the 4.5 Skill Changes Passives videos went out this week. You can find them on the Paradox YouTube and on the front page of the Paradox Gaming Network webpage. I also have the 4.5 Skill Changes for the 4 Main trees uploaded, but I’m waiting for YouTube to deflag the video since for some unknown reason my videos are getting flagged on a 1:3 ratio.
That list of questions that we sent into Muzzy has been moved over to Celestrata, and hopefully we see some answers start to roll out this week.
Ashes of Creation
Lots of new stuff with Ashes of Creation this week, so much so I was able to put together a video of both the PAX exclusive packages upgrade and some Breadcrumbs (nuggets of information from the Q&A portion). Make sure to check out that video as well.
If you haven’t registered for Ashes of Creation yet and you want to help support the Paradox Gaming Network, follow this link https://www.ashesofcreation.com/ref/Jahlon/ and register for Ashes which will help the Paradox Gaming Network. Here’s how:
We currently have 81 people who have decided to support us via this method and we have at least $126 in Intrepid Bucks that we will end up cashing out and raffling off/giving away to players. If you are one of my referrals then 15% of all the money you spend on the game (from your monthly sub to cosmetic purchases, etc) will be paid out to Paradox. The money from these purchases will stay under the umbrella for Ashes and not used for other games. So basically, if you are new to Ashes and haven’t registered you have absolutely nothing to lose from using my referral link.
A seemingly light week…
While it seems like it was a light week, with the extra translation work I did, it was really a pretty intense week. I’m going to try and get into some new games in order bring better footage to you all. On my list this week is to try and get the Paradoxical Impressions video done on Fractured.
Now onto the Paradox Gaming Network Stuff
5 Apex Giveaway
The Paradox Gaming Network is giving away 5 Apex in Archeage. To register visit our Google Form at https://goo.gl/forms/JFpUpVlSMBAboCRz1.
The contest will run through the end of the month, closing on 28 February. Given the nature of the contest will need a few days to put the drawing together and the winners will be announced on 3 March.
Delivery will commence after 3 March, however, Jahlon and the Paradox Gaming Network reserves the right to take up to 90 days to make final delivery. This is due to having to create characters on servers, level them, and then delivery
We had a really good show last weekend; and like the Energizer Bunny, it just kept going and going and going. Usually I run for about 90 mins, but we had a lot of questions and everyone seemed to enjoy the adventures of Smashface the baby Warborn lost in the world.
Check us out on Fridays at 1000 Pacific, 1300 Eastern and 1800 GMT at https://www.twitch.tv/paradox_gaming_network.
Patreon Site - The public disclaimer stuff
After the Apex are accounted for, the current Patreon Wallet is sitting at $28.00. This is going to be held in reserve until our next goal of paying for all the legal stuff to turn Paradox into a LLC.

Supporting for the Paradox Gaming Network
There are already a ton of people supporting the Paradox Gaming Network, and to each and everyone one of you I am thankful. I’ve already started one goal I had and that was the 5 Apex giveaway. The next step is turning Paradox into a LLC in order to allow me to operate a business. From there, I have a roadmap of what I want to be able to do for the future. To get there is going to take some investment money, which I could afford to put down on my own; however, if I can’t raise the money to turn my hobby into a business, then it becomes a pretty clear indication that it's too soon to pursue this course of action.
There are a ton of way to support the Paradox Gaming Network. First and foremost, I want to thank my Patreon supporters, who provide straight monthly donations. That is immensely helpful and provides money right to the bottom line. I would never ask for straight donations though, these are just people who have decided to offer me direct support.
Other ways to support Paradox are from helping get the word out about the YouTube videos. Liking the videos, sharing them to friends, helping to get them out to the community; all these things help generate exposure for the videos and in turn that exposure generates ad revenue.
Next, is Humble Bundle. Have you heard of humble bundle? Do you like having a large collection of high dollar video games for a low price? Well check out this link https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly?refc=FDxSVn Not only does this organization help charity, but it also helps the Paradox Gaming Network, which is really my core mission, bringing options to people. This month’s Humble Bundle is Dark Souls III and the Ashes of Ariandel DLC for the low price of $12 instead of the Steam Price of $74.98. That’s a pretty good deal.
Finally, if you already have Amazon Prime then you also have a Free Twitch Prime account which is pretty cool. If you didn’t know this you can get free stuff from being a Twitch Prime subscriber. Free Twitch Games (some of them are pretty decent) and free stuff for the games you already play (Heartstone, Heroes of the Storm, Call of Duty WWII, Trove and others). Plus, this gives you the ability to give one free Twitch sub a month, which helps your favorite streamer make $2.49. That’s a pretty good deal since it costs you absolutely nothing to help a streamer make a little bit of cash. Doesn’t seem like a lot, but all these little things do add up.
LLC or Bust
Right now across all mediums I’m at about $155 of the roughly $900 it's going to take for the legal paperwork. That’s not bad considering I just took $50 off the the top for Apex.
