The Public Beta Client is now available for

into the beta using your Rampid Gaming login information. If you
have any problems and are unable to sign into the beta, please

Glitches section of the beta forums and we'll try to address the

3/25/2008 - Public Beta Has
I know that people have been anxiously awaiting a release date
for the Public Beta of Crowns of Power. Well that wait is finally
over and it is my pleasure to announce that we’ll be releasing
Crowns of Power in a live, public beta on Monday, March 31st.
We’ve been working long and hard on this 3D project and are
very excited to be able to share it with all of you, our players.
Although not a final product, we feel it’s at the point where we
can allow large amounts of testers into the world while continuing
development and fixing any issues that will arise. Crowns of Power
will never be a final product, as we plan to continuously add new
content, items, spells and more throughout the life of the game,
much of which will be driven by player feedback and contributions
in the forums.
We’re counting on the testers to give us feedback throughout
the testing process. This input from our users will be critical in
helping create the best possible environment for our players to
immerse themselves in. We’ll be looking for any bugs, glitches,
performance, balance, and game play issues as well as any
suggestions or feedback that you can share with us. Any feedback
at all that you can share is valuable and much appreciated.
We’ll have the client available for download via the Downloads
section of the website. We’ll bring the servers up live for people
to login and begin playing sometime that Monday. We’ve never
stressed the servers to this capacity, however we feel we’re ready
for the volume of users that will be participating. Any issues
that arise will be dealt with in as quick a manner as possible and
any updates will be done via a patch updater.
For the many people who participated in the previous Crowns of
Power tests and posted in the forums, I’ll be awarding unique
forum titles so that you may be recognized for your contributions.
Your interest and feedback in this project has been instrumental
in helping us prepare it for this date and we’re sincerely
grateful for your efforts.
We look forward to seeing you all in the public beta test and
hope that you’re as excited as we are!
See you in the game,
Crowns of Power Team
1/21/2008 - Official Public Beta Test:
Well its been awhile since our last update, but I'm excited to
give this next one and I hope that everyone feels the same! We
have recently launched in an office test of the entire Crowns of
Power game world which turned out to be a success. We've tweaking
some final problems we ran into, as well as other random bugs that
needed to be squashed in preparation for the official Public Beta
of Crowns of Power! This project has been in development for some
time, and we greatly appreciate all the support and interest that
many of you have shared in it over the last 2 years. Everything is
finally coming together to the point where we feel we're ready to
release a full public beta test of the entire game world. Within
the next few weeks we'll be launching the public beta live and
have a client available for download on the site, as well as a
link to the download in a newsletter we'll be sending out to
anyone who has applied for the beta. This is going to be a full
open beta and all that is required to participate is a Rampid
Gaming account, which can be created at
Once the beta has run long enough where we feel comfortable that
we've tackled any bugs and issues that arise, Crowns of Power will
then be taken out of beta and officially released!
Also as a heads up, the Crowns of Power forums have been merged
into the Rampid Gaming Forums. From the Rampid Gaming forums,
you'll have access to Outwar and Crowns of Power discussion, as
well as any future products released by Rampid Interactive. So
head on over and start posting! We look forward to seeing everyone
in the public beta of Crowns of Power, and thank you again for

in mind that this is purely a PvP test to balance the base spell
schools in the game, as well as stress test the servers. The test
will take place in a Capture the Flag environment, where players
can capture flags to earn money to purchase upgraded equipment at
their team vendor. Check out the Crowns of Power Forums for

We have added some new screenshots of the upcoming zone Wastes
of Zul in the gallery. Many more screenshots will be uploaded to
the site in the coming days so check back to see all the cool new
spell effects and other additions we've made. We'll be sending
emails out when beta is up and running again, but we'll still be
giving updates on the site hopefully on a more regular basis.
Testers can look forward to 2 new zones, 2 new dungeons, and a
revamped skill system among many other things.
