City of Steam Shutdown Bonuses Event

Dear City of Steam fans,

You might have already heard that City of Steam is closing, and that's true – payment service has already been suspended, and game servers will close down for good on JANUARY 31st, 2016. It was a tough decision to make, but the browser game space is changing rapidly, we have to take this step.

We really want to thank the community for your years of support, and there are a few ways we're planning to do that:

1) All City of Steam players will receive 30,000 Electrum per day until server shutdown. There's still time to upgrade your characters to their utmost potential, and to try things you've never thought of before, be sure to enjoy!

2) You may have heard about our new title, Heroes of Skyrealm . All City of Steam players will automatically secure an exclusive in-game bonus pack for Heroes of Skyrealm at release. Just make sure to copy down your character name and server info, then we'll send you a code to help you get started on your new adventure. If you haven't checked out the previews on the Heroes of Skyrealm Facebook page yet, you are welcomed to drop by at any time!

3) Even though Heroes of Skyrealm is an independent project, and Skyrealm is its own world, the influence of the World Machine can still be felt. Meet Servo!

Forged in the heart of the Nexan Republic, this toiler is one of the 30 characters that give Heroes of Skyrealm its name. He's a new take on an old favorite, and a natural addition to any 3-character team.

From all of us at Mechanist, thank you for your loyalty, feedback, and support over the past six years. We couldn't have made Heroes of Skyrealm without you, and we hope you'll find a place in this new world!

We're Closing City of Steam Now

Dear City of Steam players,

It’s been an amazing ride. We can’t believe it’s been over six years – from the first days of early prototypes, to sharing alpha builds with a growing worldwide audience, to opening landmarks like the Refuge, the Founders’ Annex, the Vault, and Arkadia itself.

Support from our fans has guided us from the very beginning. Without you, we might never have made it through the Steam Greenlight process, which led to our widest release in 2014.

But we’re sorry to say that this chapter of The New Epoch is coming to an end. A number of factors went into this decision, the decline of Unity support in the browser is one of them – Google Chrome no longer supports NPAPI plugins like the Unity Webplayer, and Microsoft's next browser, Edge, won't either.

Suspension of payment services for City of Steam on all platforms will start on Wednesday, January 13th, 2016 (00:00AM EST, 06:00AM, CET), and full server shutdown will follow two to three weeks after that. In the meantime, though, the game will continue to run as usual.

But even though City of Steam is closing, Mechanist’s spirit of adventure is alive and well – and we encourage CoS fans to check out our upcoming mobile action RPG, Heroes of Skyrealm (https://www.facebook.com/HeroesofSkyrealm/). Set in an all-new world, Heroes of Skyrealm challenges players to build a team of over 25 legendary heroes to fight evil from a fully upgradeable aerial fortress.

How does having your own airship sound? Soon, you’ll be able to do just that – and with single-player missions, real-time online co-op, and a full array of PvP modes, the gameplay possibilities are nearly endless. Previews have already begun on our Facebook page, but there’s so much more to come!

To everyone who has enjoyed City of Steam over the years: thank you. We've learned a lot over the past six years about what makes MMOs work, and the Mechanist community has been a huge part of that.

And as we move on to the next adventure, we’ll always remember where we came from – and we hope you’ll join us.

It was fun in the past, but it was pay to win, and it ended up being filled with bots or people at the low level cap (60) waiting for events. The producers actually have/will shut it down, so don't bother playing, and especially don't bother paying anything in it.

It's over. Closed. Ended. Not available. All servers shut down. I had to install the launcher and let it sit at "last known server, in Amsterdam, is not responding" for 5 minutes just to post that.

Hey Valve, why is this still in my Exploration Queue? Yeah, they said they might make a sequel someday, but this doesn't help. Just stop recommending closed MMOs.

The Good:

It will satisfy your RPG thirst... for a while (about 20-30 hours until you hit a grind wall or a realization of a huge game flaw which will be explained later in this review). The story is decent. It isn't your cliche cookie cutter story out of a rpg recycling bin, and is good enough to come back for more.

There are lots of quests to do, besides the main story line. In fact, later on, most of the leveling will occur from doing sidequests rather than the main questline. At any time of the day, there will be a global event for you to participate in and earn gold or gear.

There is a guild system and a PVP system. There are 2 types of PVP, which I find pretty ingenious. The first is your regular PVP combat... the more powerful character wins. The second is where the game equalizes the playing field for both characters. In other words, a lvl 50 character vs a lvl 10 haracter will have the same exact stats. This helps newbies become acclimated to the combat system.

THe PVP system is also implemented in a variety of ways. There are 2v2, 3v3, 1v1 equalized PVP duels. There are guild wars. There is a regular 1v1 pvp based on the strength of your character with the AI controlling the opponet.

The Bad:

It's... yes, you guessed it, a godamn pay to win. I have added a few of the top players (ranked in PVP and level) how they attained their current statuses. One told me she paid $1000 (no I counted the zeroes correcly) and the top 2 paid over $2k. The items that are purchasable only with electrum (the in game currency only obtainable through cash) are ultra end game gear that have no level requirement. It takes about a little over $100 USD to gather most of it. (If you want all of the gear, itll be an upwards of 200, excluding armor upgrades which can become very costly.)

What's worse is that this gear is unobtainable anywhere else. You MUST pay. While other games may offer xp boosts, temporary gold gain boosts, or a sweet aesthetic item (like leagues of legends), this game falls within the very definition of pay to win: exclusive ultra gear for those who drop money. (Even Leagues lets you eventually buy champions if you grind hard enough. This game doesn't.)

Sadly, it rewards this type of behavior. Those who pay money, even get to claim more rewards for charging their credit cards.

Consequently, this Pay to Win encouragement totally destroys the guild PVP system out of the water due to the higher tier companies having members who have paid their way to glory.

Aside from the major pay to win flaw, there are other faults with the game. Item customization is very lackluster. While there are color rankings for rarity, there is no INHERENT customization of stats. E.G. Diablo 2 had great item customization in terms of different rare items providing alternate stats to skills and even helped characters gain abilities. For CoS, the rarer the weapon, the stronger the stat. Each item adds one stat. (Yes, just one stat... different pieces of gear add different stats) Item customization is minimal.

SO is the skill system. Over the course of your gameplay your character will receive 5 more skills on top of 3 default ones. You unlock a skill every 5 or 10 levels. When you do unlock a new skill: you are given a choice of 3 different skills that do different higs. You pick one and level it up as you progress. This means, the game has 15 different skills for each character.... as I said, builds are not very diverse. This is not like D2 where there are vastly different builds... a different build varies by 2 skills. THATS IT.

Gameplay is unresponsive and at times, is severely handicappd by lag. Lag is a reocurring problem as there are only 2 servers.. both located in the US.

As you begin playing, the pay to win problems will be masked by the fact that there are just so many evets abvailable for you to do. However, as you begin to gain a decent grasp of what the game offers, you slowly realize the huge, lingering grind wall in front of you. The novelty wears off, and the tedium of grinding begins. Main quests are the same: dungeon clearing with a boss at the end. This is when you start searching for alternate methods of lveling faster, as it begins increasingly difficult to reach the next level.

This is where you fall trapped to the pay to win scheme. You begin to think bout spending real cash on offers such as"brand new ultra gear!" "Tired of being ♥♥♥♥♥? SPend 200 dolars and become awesome!"

Bottom Line: The game is pure pay to win. Unbearably and horribly pay to win. Stay away. It encourages the behaviour with rewards for those who spend money. Not worth your time. Spend your time elsewhere looking for another RPG. Not here.

This game is really good for people who don't have hands, like me, because it has the option to play its self.

This isn't the game that we have supported back in the day, with a deep background and steampunk themed hack'n'slash MMO. This is yet another Korean Grinding game with tons of illusions of choices, with lots of cheap rewarding systems that are actually other ways to make you pay. - This isn't the project that we've backed, loved and cared. This isn't the Great Mechanism that we've wanted to play on. This isn't City of Steam.

Something happened to City of Steam Project in its early days, when Mechanist Games gave their publishing rights to R2 Games. They issued a Regional Ban, caused serious problems in community and they couldn't maintain the game as it was. Eventually, Mechanist Games got the rights to publish City of Steam back and renamed the game as Arkadia; We hoped that it would end the nightmare and actually make this whole project something.

But, they choose to become a Browser Game that has an Energy System to make you pay for almost everything. Don't know what has changed since then, but as I've played after about a year, I didn't see anything new, or at least something for me to care as I've cared about it before, but more fake rewarding systems.

You can play it, without playing it, by the way. You would just push a button and the game would play itself. - Point? None. I wish things would be a lot more different than this, Dave. Your universe had so much potential.

And, for god's sake, what happened to the Soundtrack Album? It was composed beautifully; Now, you have a fake Intro Music that is NOTHING compared to City of Steam's old Main Theme.

Update - Absolutely nothing has changed. I mean, literally, nothing has changed. This one's also probably going to join the Uncontinued Club, pretty soon.

Here is the main problem with this game. It basically plays itself. Everytime you click on your quest tracker to take you to where you need to go, it will do so, which is fine and all until you get to where it wants you to "complete the dungeon objective." Then it puts you into "Auto Combat" which you can turn off and fight on your own, but why is that even a thing? Why have a game that can play itself and allow you to just sit and use potions while the game fights for you?

The game is also still buggy in the tutorial section. I kept dying repeatedly against one of the first bosses because i got stuck on absolutely nothing and kept getting pulled back and forth to the same spot so I had to keep relogging before it finally stopped doing that.

All in all, the game has a good idea for what it was going to be when it was in pre-alpha but something made the devs change their minds or something to make it like it is now with the "hold your hand" combat system and still many bugs to be found. Definitally not worth my time anymore unless they fix the problems.

This game is in a huge make-over from a nice game to a heavily P2W game. Current features are being changed, just to lure people in spending more. Good example would be the mercenary system. The first one was unique, simple and works nicely. Right now they've copy+pasted a feature from R2Games (company that's only out on people's money), changed the looks, and that's the new mercenary system. Giving players the option to get a orange (best) mercenary for 3 dollars. While players that doesn't spend probably get that chance just once or twice a day. After that they changed the pet system. Now they changed Daily Goals.
Further every single patch they update, it contains so many bugs that it just makes anyone sick. Sometimes even leads to exploiting. Half of the time people get away with it. Other half people getting banned. The game is just being developed and run by amateurs. Probably interns/externs working on a game. Even lacking on simple math and logic.

This WAS a great game, sadly they turned it into a pay to win instead and completely ruined it, I don't mind a minor pay to win aspect but they got extremely greedy making it cost ridiculous amounts of money to be at competitive at the top tiers, no skill required.
