This week from the
Paradox Gaming Network
Gave away a ton of APEX this week. Ok, not a ton, not literally 907.19 kg of APEX, but seven. Seven is quite a few APEX, but I’m glad to finally be getting this money back into the hands of the community.
A lot of good stuff going on in Archeage again this week.
Blue Salt Brotherhood Quests I and II are now out, so I’m going to keep I on the front page of my website for another week to keep it liked up with its companion piece. Also, I got the 4.5 Skill Changes video on Occultism done. That one is uploaded as well.
I currently have finished doing the Defense translations, with a ton of information direct from Trion (specifically Quill). Big thank you to Quill for all help. Also, good news, I hear that Mark at omnom.io is going to be doing a massive data update, so hopefully there will be a lot of stuff to enjoy from him this week. Truthfully, I’m excited for that because I’m not very good at the Korean translating, and after a few months of doing it, I want to get back to the other projects.
My new working relationship with Trion seems to be turning the ship a little bit. Some things Trion does still makes me scratch my head and say “WTF?” to myself, but the team genuinely seems interested in trying to fix things. That is where you all come in.
Supporting channels like mine, and those of the other Archeage Creators (Aired, Yoruki) as well as the non-video products like omnom.io gives the Creators a larger voice to bring your concerns to the company.
Ashes of Creation
Dessert is served!
I said last week that I would deliver dessert aka the PAX Cosmetics. Well its dessert time, but I didn’t want to just toss out a 30 second video so I brought you some other stuff as well. Ok, so yes I had it posted, then had to take it down, then put it back up. Things happen. Like no attention to detail.
I Let me introduce you to a new Google Doc I’m working on. It’s a compilation of a number of questions we get asked in the Ashes Discord every day.
The full link is: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1grKCa1EqsivII5mzsYve1TFc_NS6ucQOSiuH251Mijs/edit
But I created a tinyurl for you as: http://tinyurl.com/aocfaq
That document will continue to grow as I have time, or as I see the same question asked over and over.
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:
Currently 89 people have signed up for Ashes via this link and have generated $126 in Intrepid Bucks. When Ashes goes live, this money will be cashed out and funneled back into the playerbase. Fifteen percent of purchases made at Ashes of Creation (pack purchases, monthly sub, cosmetic purchases, etc) will be paid out to Paradox. This money will stay under Ashes umbrella and not used anywhere else. So basically, if you are new to Ashes and haven’t registered you have absolutely nothing to lose from using my referral link.
Now onto the Paradox Gaming Network Stuff
People think I’m kidding when I say I want to be the voice of 50,000 Gamers so when a company does something silly (even if it's for a game I don’t actively play) I can turn my attention to them and say “Care to comment?” I get told all the time that I won’t hit 50,000 followers across all my social media, and maybe I won’t, but if you are going to dream...dream BIG.
Apex for you...and you...and you
The good news is, that there weren’t too many unique places I needed to deliver Apex for the Five Apex Giveaway so those have all been dispersed. I also gave away 2 Apex during my Twitch on Friday since we hit record numbers.
YouTube - 1,431 Subscribers by 31 March? 131 in 21 Days
Jahlon has thrown down the challenge.
As a community, I think that we can grow a little bit faster than we have been. I say this, because I haven’t really pushed the community yet, I was mainly doing everything for something to do, but I want to get more socially engaged with the video game community. I seriously do want to b so each month I’m going to set a target goal based on what social blade has either said (previously) or is currently saying. I have all of 2018 bench marks from a previous data pull, so any month we hit the goal for YouTube subs, that’s an APEX giveaway to be had.
Later on down the road if I start doing some other games, I will give away stuff in those games too.
Twitch - Follower Goal 310 by 31 Mar
What a show, what a show.
We tore a huge chunk out of Twitch Goals this week.
I wanted to hit around 40 viewers, we actually hit 49, which is roughly 25% higher than the 200% increase I wanted to do. I’m trying to slowly March the show up to an average of 75 viewers. I’m not actually sure that’s possible since that would be like 2.5x the normal number of Archeage viewers during that time slot.
You never know until you try, and this month is the month of seeing what we can do.
So, this week we gained 28 new followers. As of Sunday we are starting with 265 Followers. For me to give away another Apex we will need to hit 300 Followers by the end of the Show. If we Manage to hit that, its an APEX raffle. If we can’t fight our way to 300 followers, then maybe we can get up to 65 simultaneous viewers. I’m sure you all have friends that are gaming at the Archeage 101 show time. Drag them, kick over rocks, do whatever you need to do to get them into the show. We we hit 65 simultaneous viewers its an Apex Raffle. This is an either/or raffle, however, I of course, can always be persuaded to deal off another APEX if we hit both benchmarks.
Also, if we get 2 new Subscribers on Twitch of any type (Twitch Prime, paid subscriptions, etc) I will Raffle off an Apex. This is in addition to the one (or even two) above.
Check us out on Fridays at 1000 Pacific, 1300 Eastern and 1800 GMT at https://www.twitch.tv/paradox_gaming_network.
Patreon Site - Changed Goals aiming for 5 Patrons
As I said, I want to become the voice of a lot of people-Since everyone needs goals, right now I do not have a financial goal for Patreon, but I would like to see if I can get to 5 Patrons. The first step to reaching a goal is setting a goal, so there, goal set. 5 Patrons is the goal. If we hit 5 Patrons, I will do another Apex Raffle (this one will be done via YouTube since my YouTube work feeds my Patreon and vice versa).
