Greetings Noble Lords and Ladies!

The Polycount Arms & Armor contest may be over, but fear not! We are preparing our anvils to start equipping our warriors with an entirely new arsenal of weapons and helmets!.

In the spirit of openness, we are trying to provide content creators with as much information as we can about the sales of items in the UGC store, so that you can make data-driven decisions based on what our players are interested in.

As you can see, there is a large disparity between the highest and lowest selling items, and you can see from the graph that stylistic differences had an influence on this.

Some items that we would love to see and think our players are yearning for:
  • Man-At-Arms Helmets
  • Vanguard Helmets
  • Longbow
  • Warbow
  • Crossbow
  • Heavy Crossbow
  • Short Spear
  • Heavy Javelin
  • Sling
  • Saber
  • Cudgel
  • Broad Dagger
  • Hunting Knife
  • Flanged Mace
  • Morning Star
  • Hatchet
  • War Axe
  • Dane Axe
  • Claymore
  • Warhammer
  • Pole Axe
  • Sword of War
  • Fork
  • Polehammer
  • Quarterstaff
  • Light Flail

Remember though, not all weapons are created equal, in that more popular weapons will most likely sell more.

We’ve settled on the next group of items to be incorporated, and will be looking to the workshop in the coming weeks to choose items beyond that. This will be an ongoing process. Stay tuned for updates coming very soon on the next round. While there is definitely a backlog of quality items that didn’t quite make the cut for the contest, there are still plenty of opportunities to get new items into the game.

Lastly, we would like to know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the whole process of content creation through implementation in game. This is a new process for us, and will be evolving as we continue to learn more.
