I've been meaning to try making one multiplayer game but can't decide/find a good FREE solution for basic p2p + natpunch. I really don't care about either having to learn some real low level stuff, I just want a working p2p.
It looks like all current solutions require you to either buy a server or run shit on the cloud. I'd rather have some basic play-and-connect-directly-with-your-friend solution.
>>
>>374041
NAT punchthrough inherently requires a third party server. Initially you could just require people to forward ports, though. For most people that isn't too big of a deal.
Depending on the kind of game you're making you could make do with TCP, too. For something turn based this would be fine.

Any MMOs with a strong ERP community? It seems there's so little despite how social some games are. I know there's shit like XIV and of course Second Life but I'd like to hear more experiences and alternatives

I'm just here to shill an old MMO I've gotten into recently (few months ago) and which I fell in love with : Dungeons and Dragons : Online. I think it is a really cool game with lots of very interesting features that is worth looking into even though it has its flaws.

Pros :

>Lots of customizations, classic D&D features like Ability scores, feats, multiclassing, etc. Also adds Enhancements which are skill trees that allow further customization of your character.
>Quests are fun, every single one is narrated and acts as a dungeon of various size (some can be one room big and others can be sprawling mazes that take hours to get through). Almost all quests have optional objectives and secrets that reward the player with XP and loot. The whole game is very immersive overall
>Loot and Gear is very cool, many low level items stay relevant forever. Items are not merely +atk or +def, different items are better at different times. Enemies have immunities and weaknesses and you can capitalize on that with your gear and spells.
>Community is very mature and friendly
>A ludicrous amount of content and more content comes out regularly
>A lot of paid content can be earned by playing, you earn DDO points regularly and that can be used for permanent character or account upgrades
>Infinite replayability, the game encourages you to play as every classes and races through the Resurrection system

-Stop paying subscription
-wow loses more players
-decides it wants to keep making money
-goes f2p
-makes money by selling mounts skins etc
-profit
-thank me later suckers
>>
this year 2 of my friends who were paying wow 5 years straight decided to stop. Imagine paying 5 years blizzard so they can eat lobsters while those idiots ate instanoodles lmao. I stopped during bc, best decision i ever made
>>
Agreed. Eveyone should stop so that it goes f2p.

It is win win, bliz still gets money and we get a free game.

Yes it would most likely be a free game with crap content, but we have crap content now so it will be like nothing has changed.

Give me MOP PvP for free and I will play your game for years.

I think a Classic F2P server will probably happen, but they'll make a F2P only cash shop meta for it to get some bucks.
>>
>>375947
it will happen sooner or later

me and the gang 9 people in all, brothers cousins etc used to play daily for 3-4 hours, multiple subs money every month etc.

NO MORE, might return if it goes f2p but as it is now no more money for blizzcrap

What about if we use this skin or other explosive/kamikaze related skins on Ariana Grande fortnite concert? be funny to see a lot of Nitro Jerry exploting in the crowd while it's streamed
>>
>>376841
Hey man, I'm from Manchester, that's not funny.
It's hilarious.
But, it needs to be the closest thing you can find to an arab, which is pretty difficult, honestly. I don't even think there's any goat or camel themed skins.
>>
>>376841
>arab friend owns this skin
kek
sadly in order for nitro jerry to explode you have to get a Victory Royale which will definitely be impossible during the concert

Now that Dota is a shell of its former self, and my new computer can't run Tarkov, I am craving for a game to really sink my teeth into. The kind of game that takes a few hundred hours to figure out the basics and has a lot of theory. Yes I'm retarded.

You have a variety of class to choose from, with a variety of different skills plus you can upgrade in other ways, and eventually build a 'Mercenary' which is basically a custom class with whichever skills you choose.

Hey fellow kekistanis..

2b2t has very few kekistans playing on it and 2f2f no longer exists so i took it upon myself to make a community driven anarchy server, it is currently hosted on 1 gig of ram so if you wanna help make it better you can donate at https://ezanarchy.tebex.io/

If you just wanna play and fuck things up then go join the server with the IP: ezanarchy.com
>>
>>376955
Can't wait to see this die due to being literally the same as every anarchy server posted to /vm/ ever.
