will it flop? will it save the genre? will it be the AoC waiting room?
its gonna be fun at the start I think no idea about its longevity but I wouldn't get your hopes up.
>>362132They changed pvp so you have to flag.
Would've been great if they left the pvp system in place. Oh well, just saved me from giving Amazon more money.
Last open beta was pretty bad. Also the game have no direction (first survival PvP, then zone control+sandbox PvP, then "basic bitch" MMO PvE+ optional PvP, etc) so I doubt it have a future.
>>362132It's gonna be pretty good, already leagues better than whatever that AoC alpha was.
>>362388That is terrible. Hope it flops. Or slowly dwindles and dies down like the pretty cash grab it is.
>>362132They scrapped the original concept for a generic bitch MMORPG with no soul.Without the open conquest PVP it pretty much lost all potential now that its a PVE focused boss farmer.
>>362132Lost Ark waiting room
>>362469Go play crowfall, im sure you won't lose interest in a week
>>362132the pvp looks about as deep as a puddle. basically on par with ESO.
will OP stop being a faggot? will OP stop being retarded?
>>362558crowfall released like 3 years too early in their development
>>362132It is going to flop, only 2 dungeons at launch with a pay to win model
PVE faggots ruined everythingI miss the old days of WoW with dedicated PvP servers
>>362570Imperial City is alot of fun desu
>>362954Objectively wrong but ok. At least 4 dungeons and less pay2win than all other mmos on the market but ok
>>362954you obviously haven't really read anything about the game stop spouting nonsense retard.
>>363019When it isn't lagging like you're on a 56k and also when ESO combat isn't shit so basically no, you're wrong. Imperial City WAS fun when it was Darkness Falls in Dark Age of Camelot, an actual good game.
It's gonna be shit. I was invited to play the first alpha, second alpha and beta. The first alpha was really bugged but was a total different game that I had fun like never before in other games. Beta was just another mmorpg reskined.
>>362132I like cutting trees and mining rocks. It's unironically the best part of the current game.
>>362960I miss pre-Trammel UO
>>362132I will buy this game if they make PvP on all the time. nothing I hate more than a game catering to carebears. a pvp toggle is equivalent to no PvP at all (or after the novelty wears off)
>>363288They won't because every "full pvp" game in the last 10 years has been a commercial failure
>>363290starcitizen will prove you wrong! [someday]
>>363290Sea of Thieves
>>363060>4 dungeonsThat is still almost next to nothing, if a game doesn't have 10+ dungeons at launch it will be dead in a month or two.> less pay2winAny pay to win is trash, a level boost is one thing but limiting quick travel is a total dick move.
>>363326>commercial failurealbion is a niche shitbox game although they have had some respectable playerbase growth since 2018
>>363502>albion is a commercial failure>source: my ass
>>363290t-This time will be different! Just like the next arena shooter!
>>363523https://www.stillfront.com/en/stillfront-group-presents-unaudited-proforma-financials-for-ytd-q3-2020-and-fy-2021-guidance-for-the-acquisitions-of-super-free-games-and-sandbox-interactive/$12m USD net revenue is pretty mediocre and that was before this company bought them. I guess you're right though, if their goal was bottom of the barrel then no they're not a commercial failure since that was their expectation.
>>363547also it's not full pvp, they have that safe zone system like eve online where there's a big safe map and then certain zones are pvp.
>theme is garbage>gameplay looks soullesslooks like shit
>>362132I feel like New World is going to end up like ATLAS. I bought that game at launch and it was an immense disappointment.
>>363607the biggest difference is that new world is actually a real game + tech demo for amazons scaling shit whereas atlas was a half baked DLC for a shitty survival game released as a standalone so that they could grab more cash.
aoc waiting room.
>>363288You have to be flagged to do PvP missions out in the world, which give a lot more XP. You also get XP for killing players. There used to be a 10% XP bonus for just being flagged, but they removed it. I'm hoping they reenable it after the beta.
>>363571The theme is dope, but the gameplay looks like meh.
>>362132They don't have any faith in their own design and now they're desperately changing.
I am extremely hype for this game and desu I don't really know why. I haven't been hyped for an MMO in years. I just have this gut feeling that it'll be fun.
>>362132I just want a big beautiful crafter that I can spend 19 hours a day gathering materials to feed to.
>tfw colonizing the locals
When we inevitably have a /vg/ thread we all need to bully the other posters to go Covenant for the 4chan company. Ok?
I'm just going to musket snipe weaker players and mic spam all over them for the keks.
>>363402GW2 had 8 dungeons at launch and now has 9 dungeons after like a decade. Maybe stop talking out of your ass.
>>363060so its still pay to win?
>>364071it looks as generic as possible
>be me>get in beta access by signing up >play it>super fun, like Minecraft meets an mmo>character is named Adolf>looks as much like him too>wanted to rp as good guy adolf in this new world>start talking in world chat>cause civil unrest, basically started a chat civil war >people report me and call me a nazi sympathizer over a name and portrait>forced name change>immersion lost>uninstall If you like censorship, you’ll love this game.
>>364540Nice, sounds great if the community and gms are already filtering out the /pol/chuds.
>>364514Yeah, the market is flooded with games with colonial settings. I can't fucking believe the MMORPG genre is just Granado Espada clones.
>>364540>>wanted to rp as good guy adolf in this new worldBy being a vegan painter who grows his own vegetables?
>>364540lulz at that victimhood complex
>>364571I’m a pol chud for trying to rp as good guy hitler?Perhaps I’m just a German immigrant who’s tired of the stigma around the name.We don’t go round shunning the name Vladimir despite vlad the impaler, who was far worse of a person than hitler ever was.Again, if you enjoy censorship, this games for you.
>advertising on steams front page againthey must be at least a little confident with the quality of the closed beta to do this
>>364540>game takes place in age of exploration fantasy world>rp as 20th century characterI'm glad you were forced to change your name and portrait. You were breaking immersion for everyone else you fucking idiot. German was a cuck country during that time period, just like it is today.
>>364735found a censor cuck.go play censored world all you want.
>>364788Go play nothing, because no one wants an immersion braking cuck in their game
Is there are review embargo on the game?
https://newworldfans.com/articles/new-world-closed-beta-server-list-revealedSee you fags on Thule.
>>365063are guilds going to be enabled in the beta? if so, would anyone be interested in having one for the time we have?
>>365065yes they are, what server u gonna be on senpai?
what faction are we playing on?
>>364540Ok, game is pre-ordered. I want to be in on the trolling train.
>>365165Covenant on Thule
Hmm, Marauders, this sounds like were all the tryhard gankers will join.Perfect, we can be part of the winning faction and rape Covenant sissies out of the server.
>>364804Crazy how every other game I play allows the name.Enjoy your censored shitty Amazon game.I’m far too busy enjoying the shit out of swords of legends online, which I highly recommend.8v44h
>>365236>he thinks rolling on the most popular faction makes him a chadCovenant will most likely be the underdog.
>>365276I will now name my character Adolf during the beta and see if it survives. Will report back.
>>365276>>365325Call your character JeffBezosIsGay and watch everyone laugh while moderators go ballistic.
I played one of the betas a long time ago, like last year I think. It was kind of boring, the combat felt laggy and pretty basic but it wasn't bad. There wasn't really much to do either it seemed. How is it doing now, I've heard it's undergone many changes. Seems interesting cause it reminds me of Fable so I will play on release
I hope there's a set that lets me larp as a Samurai while I cut down westcucks with my katana (superior Japanese blade folded over 1 trillion times).
>>362132Didnt they change pvp to be more casual to cater to pve WoW babys? No thanks
>>363290The majority of MMO/open-world/live-service games are commercial failures. It's just that the ones that show any promise or uniqueness, get swamped by chumps that then demand changes to make every game exactly the same as all the ones they got bored with. Anyone wanting a polished game with open world-PvP but who doesn't like the setting or gameplay of EVE Online, hasn't had anything other than Sea of Thieves and New World as it was originally envisioned. Vast amounts of feedback from players with lots of world-PvP experience, on how to make such games more accessible and enjoyable for many people, is ignored in favour of that from people who hate PvP but get bored with their own preferred gameplay constantly.
>>365276>Plays bugman trash game
>>365276>swords of legends online>developed by Wangyuan Shengtang Entertainment Technology CO.>published by Gameforge 4D GmbH in Karlsruhe, Germanyenjoy your chinese spyware and nazi propaganda
>>365454>nazi propagandaI wish
>>365347The problem is that griefers will try to exploit an open PVP system in any way they can. It sucks but that's just the way it is.
>>365505So? Let players deal with it. In the golden age of MMOs we had anti-PKers that only killed PKers and would hunt down the more infamous ones.
>>365587>Let players deal with itThey do, it's called dropping the game.
>>365347>>365587Again, most people don't really want a pvp sandbox MMO, even the ones asking for them. They want to play solo and gank low level solo players like they did in WoW.
Make an MMO modern like New World with a big budget, but make the design like classic Everquest. Anyone else think it would blow up, or flop?
>>365619>>365669Meanwhile in the real-world, such has been said about Sea of Thieves for years and it's still going. CCP kept being told over and over to make EVE more casual and 'make losing a ship or being killed less of a loss', for years even after all their telemetry consistently showed: players that die to other players sooner rather than later correlated with a higher-retention after six months. It's players who avoid risks, save up for a 'good enough ship' for months, only to take it out and lose it to a gang flying starter frigates, who were always quitting. The issue was the relative safe areas distort the expectations of players, and they come to see losing anything at all as a mistake rather than a normal occurrence that should always be expected. The people who want to do pure PKing PvP by funny coincidence, are the people who want no repercussion for doing it. They're the ones that always demand 100% safe areas where they can't be attacked, so the PvP they do only when it suits them has fewer or no consequences. We them on the forums for Sea of Thieves, because they talk highly of their love of 'PvP' in ARK and Rust, where they do nothing but this shit but can't handle an actual world-PvP fight at all.
>>365708>Every MMO released in the last 15+ years>Almost all failed>Would it be a success?
>>365505PvPers are experienced in these things, but their suggestions are not listened to. Instead it's the feedback of people who hate actual PvP that's taken onboard, so we end up with 'PvP features' obviously designed by people with no clue about PvP, especially not open or world-PvP. Griefers exploit systems: they LOVE systems that limit PvP and consequences for PvP, because they will find any way to screw around with them. The people demanding ever-increasing restrictions on PvP where ever it exists: It's THEM, the ones accusing others of exactly what their default-mode for PvP is. There is a reason why they always SUCK in a straight-up fight: they have no experience or desire to have any.
2 more days. See you boys on Thule
>>362558i bought crowfall the day you could buy a pledge. it is still not finished. not a great comparison bud.

>>366616You and like 2 dudes and me and like 50 dudes from /v/ and at least another 30 from /vg/ and we'll be laughing our ass off as we shoot Asmon if he dares flag up. Thule is gonna be a bunch of BR huehuehue's why the fuck would anyone go there?
>>362132it'll be fun for at least a month, we'll see if there's enough to it to last any longer
>>366618>>366618>Thule is gonna be a bunch of BR huehuehue's why the fuck would anyone go there?Source: your ass
>>366618There are South America servers, Benji. Retard.
i'm glad they took the game in a more pve oriented direction, there's already plenty of good pvp games out there if that's your thing, we dont need turbo autism 'drop everything and lose tons of progression' on death open world pvp fests. it'd be nice to get a game with actual GOOD pve content and progression for once, with some optionally fleshed out pvp if you CHOOSE to participate. the mmo space desparately needs a good pve game that isnt just WoW hotbar rehash #69
>>366837kinda hard to be mad about losing one set of gear after playing games like rust, conan and ark and having everything you own destroyed and stolen while you're offline. oh no I died in this MMO and they took my armor and weapon. good thing i have 10 more in my 100% secure bank.
>>366837Was it fully lootable bodies pvp during earlier stages of the game? That's quite retarded in this day and age, I can agree. Even as someone who played such MMO back then, the times for that element in MMOs is kind of gone. Especially when gear is getting more and more complex, time-consuming to acquire and a bigger aspect of the game. Open world pvp is alright otherwise, when keeping your stuff.
>>366845>the times for that element in MMOs is kind of goneYeah, Albion Online is a total failure. Oh wait.
>>366846Is gear complex, hard or time-consuming to get geared up again? I have my experience with Ultima Online, and that's why I said, that the time for that seems gone in the sense for MMOs.
>>366847No, gear is never hard to get in full loot MMOs. This was true for UO as well.
>>366554>SBSwoleBenji? lol ok have fun following that retard to the squeaker streamer server. PvP is opt in so it's not guaranteed that you can kill the streamers you're targeting and even if they do flag they're guaranteed to be running around with hordes of their fans so you won't be able to do shit anyway. Mic spam? That'll work for a few minutes until they mute you.
>>366837>i'm glad they took the game in a more pve oriented directionI don't. It could be good if the game was designed as a PvE game since the start, but switching to PvE at the end of the dev cycle means is going to be shit.
>>362558Ah yes, Crowfall, a game that is still trying to be what it said it was going to be.New World has no idea what it wants to be, it keeps reworking its gameplay to appease people that it was never marketed to in the first place, and you can tell by what the PVE already looks like, spoiler: its trash.It spent all its development making a conquest crafting PVP MMO, then removed all that shit and is trying to adhoc in a WOW style instance farmer with none of the gameplay systems for that style of game in place, meaning its going to do nothing well at all except blueball all the original backers.The only thing anyone will get from new world is that more beta buyers will have more buyers remorse and more people aren't going to fall for the absolute scam that is EA buyable betas.
>>366942But you get to play the beta for 2 weeks and get a refund before launch if you don't like it.
what's the character creator like? Does every option look like a goblin? does it even matter like destiny where your helmet never comes off
Which server will be the dedicated /vm/ one?
>>367021whatever one that doesn’t have faggot ecelebs
>>367025and which ones are they on?
how is it current year and mmorpgs are still using multiple servers you have to coordinate with and hope you aren’t stuck with massive faggots how is one server not a thing yet?
>>367041one world would mean youre guaranteed to be stuck with the faggots with no escape. multiple servers lets you escape them.
>>367041Because besides EVE Online, MMO tech has been stuck in the 90sEveryone still uses Everquest as a template to what "MMOs" are supposed to be which is why the MMO genre has been so fucking stagnant for so fucking long, and worse still is not only do they keep these segregated servers, but hey also region lock them, and even on your individual servers there are runescape style 'rooms' where you can only have like 100 people in a single world instance its fucking retarded, like how the fuck has MMO tech regressed from vanilla WOW's seemless open world where you could run from Teldrassil to Tanaris in the same world enviroment as everyone else who isn't in a dungeon, how the fuck has server tech gotten worse, not better over time.
>>367043If the game is single shard, the world should be large enough that you could be playing on the otherside of the world from all the faggots questing in the world's equivelent of westfall
>>367041>>367043>>367044*saves mmos**in another decade or so*
>>367021Thule. I've seen no mention of any streamers playing there and redditors are all over muh Olympus and Atlantis. Thule is the natural home of 4chan.
>>367041>>367044If it was one server they'd have to make instances when areas get too crowded and that's even worse than multiple servers. EVE can have one non-instanced server because it's in space, which is far easier to make huge than a fully detailed terrestrial world.
>>367059also there are player owned houses that occupy physical space in the settlements. If it was one server then either people are sharing houses with the interior being instanced or many people don't get a house
>>367059Or server tech could just not be stuck in the 90s.Nostralius, a fan server for 2004 WOW was able to handle insane ammounts of players camping the same areas to clear quests and farm mobs with very little server lag, WOW classic had tons of lag even with shit tons of phasing garbage.Its only an excuse that server tech in modern MMOs fucking suck because they put all their development into how to monotize the fuck out of the grind then actually developing better tech because MMOfags are so desperate for a next gen MMO that they'll play litteral fucking garbage designed from the ground up to fuck your wallet while the gameplay tech is still older then you probably are.
>>367062Nostalrius did that by having instantly respawning mods. You think Amazon of all fucking companies can't have a single server if they really wanted? I'd rather not have retarded shit like Nostalrius OR phasing garbage like classic. Until someone can build a sufficiently large enough world for a fantasy MMO to have a single server then I'd prefer multiple servers that allow you to build a community. Cross server is cancer.
do we have any vm guild planned at all? are there even going to be guilds in the beta?
>>367204Prob not until release desu, but I'll be rolling Covenant on Thule if you want to join me.
it is unsalvageableit was never good, open world pvp autists (graveyards of games trying to appeal to them which go unplayed, yet here they are in every single new murmuring of an mmo demanding it all over again) are retards, but they took a game catered for retards and tried to deretardify it at the last minute and now you just have a game that is not only retarded but also crippled
>>367226>it was never good, open world pvp autists (graveyards of games trying to appeal to them which go unplayed, yet here they are in every single new murmuring of an mmo demanding it all over again)The problem is making MMOs that cater only to pvp players. MMOs should be made from the ground up as worlds to be explored and adventured in with rich pve content but also give the option to become a player killer with some significant repercussions. Criminal status, tougher death penalties, reward other players for killing criminals etc. This is how UO did it and it worked well.
>>362132I feel like I've seen this game before only it was a singleplayer sandbox Or is this the Bezos MMO?
>>367248>give the optionNO, it should always be off or reserved for battle grounds. Enough of this optional world PvP shit. I miss the days of dedicated PvP servers, I never thought I would feel that way
anyone else getting this when loading up the closed beta?
>>367212for me? It's syndicate. I do actually appreciate all the factions however, none really stands out as being the 'good' or 'bad' guys, they all seem equally morally ambiguous and that sits right with me
I absolutely fucking love the seething pvptards crying over this game. Why don't you retards fuck off to your pvp games hey. Go play sea of thieves and leave the real kino to coop pve chads. Got all my friends to buy this a when first alpha dropped and we've loved every beta event so far. Only pvp babies cry over this game lmao
>>367447>PVE chads>Touching this trashfireLMAO
>>367449Aww the little pvp retard is crying even more. So sad :(
>>367451No, this game is fucking not built for PVE, the mob AI is fucking dogshit even after reworking the game to be a dungeon farmer.
>>367452Ok baby, you keep believing your own little bullshit. Meanwhile in the real world it's a great game with fun combat. It's been a blast with friends
>>367447>he doesn't know that it's still primarily a pvp game
>>367452>>367550>replying to obvious baitYou guys are horrible at 4chan PvP.Anyways, anyone who tried the beta knows the PvE sucks hard, at best it feels like a poor man's Vindictus.

>>362132GOTY, having a blast. combat is dope. keep coping ashesfags
>>367807>combat is dopenah, it is a little unresponsive sometimes, but that could be a server issue, rolling is far better than blocking
>>363195Preach it brother.
so are there zones in the world where pvp is always turned on? or did they get rid of that
>>367880just opt in bro
>>362132GOTY. the combat is sick and the gathering is comfy. AoC reaching too high and way too p2w for a game that quadrupled its kickstarter goals. it will always be a shitty kickstarter mmo.
>>367898The gathering is actually pretty decent but the combat feels more monster hunter than souls like.
>>367880if you want to pvp you just flag for pvpyou can't contribute to territory control without flagging, and you get better quests and more XP for flaggingso while you can play with PVP off you become a non-factor in the faction war meta game and your progress is slower
>>367918is there even any benefit to pking, and do you even lose anything when you yourself get pked?
>>367930u get xp on kill, and lose durability on death. also with pvp enabled, you gain 5% xp
Can you refund it on Steam if you buy it for the beta access and play over 2 hours, since its still technically not out? Or should I get it from Amazon
>>367983thats it? sounds more like an inconvenience to even enable pvp. The pvp looks just like gw2 WvWvW zergining.
Report your loyalty to your faction anon!
>>368466>wanted to go syndicate>read the text>no longer want to go syndicate>go covenant instead because trogs all went marauder
>>368343enjoy your tire fire of a gpu, my RX6900xt (nice) is running just fine
I've got about 20 hours in the beta so far, sweaty I know. I'm level 20 and im loving the game.Been waiting for an MMO to satisfy me for a long time now since quitting wow a couple years ago this is really hitting the spot
>>368542How do you feel about having 3 skills per weapon? I seems a bit lackluster imo, it's the only thing that i dislike so far. (I haven't played it only watched it).
>>368542I agree also sitting at 25 hours and I can safely say this is the MMO the market has been waiting for. This is the best thing released in the past 10 years. The polish the gameplay the passion. It is clear it has a large team of avid MMO players behind it.
movement feels shit lmaostutters and gets stuck in objects easilyalso 3 abilities is kinda wack but at least we can mix and match from both trees, they should at least give faction specific abilities
>>368542>>368556>Yes sirs very nice game, best momorpg on the market very nice they put the big passion into game making
>>362132It honestly looks like Elder Scrolls online but..not?
>>368836It looks just like the game with its core idea being revamped several times: barely working via duct taping disparate elements left from previous iterations. Yeah, it runs and even manages to look nice, but still it lack polish that a game built with clear vision behind it would have. And it is made by fukken Amazon, all the moneys of the world are there and still it is lackluster.Yeah, I haven't played yet only watched some streams. Surely, I want to scratch that mmo itch from olden times, but the game looks suspiciously bland and rushed with no guarantees that it'll last and will get polished. It looks like Amazon's executives damage control strat - sell as many boxes as possible, run it for a while and dump it. Also too many copypaste vibes from teso and gw2 which isn't a bad thing in itself, but it allseems to be watered down or simplified or transitioned without inspiration. Lore has no substance, quests are a chore. PvP can run this game for a while, but skill decks and trees are so shallow that I doubt that it'll spark metagame that will carry the game itself.Overall: rushed, secondary, uninspired game with some nice nuggets in it. Needs another year of iteration under caring management and it's Amazon - no soul is allowed in their stronghold, so won't happen.
Which North American server DOES NOT have streamer niggers?
>>363402Magic Legends had 4 times as much and they closed it down already.
>>363550>like eve onlineand UNLIKE EVE there's no fucking content whatsoever in there
Aight lads , Path of Exile just committed suicide , is New World worth playing?
>>368866>North American>DOES NOT have streamer niggerspick one
I'm having so much fun playing covenant spamming religious texts on proximity mic while cleansing the lands of heretic filth
Combat is fucking dogshit compared to last year. I was in the alpha since November and watched this game get worse with every update.The only people who think the combat is good now either got filtered by the old system or haven't played enough to realize how shallow and also fundamentally broken it is.
>>363394stopped playing SoT a few months ago since everyone was always running away even when they had no loot at all
>>369151last year was trash hatchet stun lock spamming that was the most boring shit ever
>>369257That only worked on mobs. Hatchet was useless in pvp
how does this game compare to UO? if it's anything like it i'll prolly buy it
>>369257Perfect example of retard who got filtered by the noob trap.
>>365236Purple rp faggots. Green zoom zoom twitch streamers. Convenient smaller in numbers pvp at heart to fuck you up. Make the change and purge the heretics out of the new world.
>>369085Wait, what'd PoE do this time?
>>368554Not him, but it works out fine. Most talents/abilities are fantastic, so you really sweat about everything, the different trees in each weapon really seal the deal. Do you take 4 decent, but not great for your build perks for that mouth watering 15% more critical strike chance?Or do you cap all the abilities you actually want to use and grab another talent that will be really beneficial to your build. There's never enough skill points to do everything you want, and I think thats a good thing. As for the abilities most of them only have a 10ish second cooldown, add that you probably want to reposition, toss in a few light/heavy attacks to proc or take advantage of your talents and you always have something to do.
>>362408the AoC alpha is entirely server testing and has no content on purpose
>people still have connection issuesLaunch day will be an absolute shit show
I joined a mass recruit guild of the covenant faction on my server to find some PVP. It's been pretty fun but the leader is a massive cuck, I hope theres a 4chan company on launch that does pvp and allows me to be toxic in chatI wish there were more abilities for slows or group AOE speeed buffs, but I see some further down the line on musket and sword.Im gathering everything and enjoying the crafting, bullets seem to sell well in the early game if you rush them. Bags sell well too so you need to farm faction pvp quests for runes of holding and decent gear. Someone here already has a +500 weight bag.
>greataxe has gravity well vortex ability>bow has smaller slow duration than musket>ice slow is a short range wall of fire>haste on rapier evade doesn't allow you to gain any distance because the animation staggers youI don't know what the fuck is going on with these skills
i made the mistake of picking Xanadu because i like the name its fun to say and im autistic it was mentioned in an episode of star trek and that brings back happy memories but apparently some streamer or some shit picked it so every one else did and now i have shit fucking queue times.On a side note does any one know where the Officer stuff drops from i see people running around in it and it looks nice like some Napoleonic line infantry?
>>362132THANKS TO THIS GAME, JEFF COULD VISIT SPES!
>>370555now its not even free of capitalist corruption.
>>362132>releases in a monthIs this worth getting into? I heard from someone who played the alpha said it was good PvP-wise but shit PvE/story/quest-wise.Is it just game/mmo #739 that popular streamers are being paid to shill and zoomers following thinking they'll have a chance to play with them and then inevitably the game dying after a month or two?
>>370695Right now its bare bones pve wise. Boring copypasted mobs with not very interesting mechanics and skills. Pve exists only as another means to level up. Lore is meh at best, quests are perfunctory. Exploring new locations is interesting right until you understand that there is no cool hidden places or lore tidbits placed by devs. Terrain exist only to spawn resource nodes.Hasn't tried pvp yet, but skill and trait trees are a bit... bland, dunno. Also I reckon tying skills to weapon type to be limiting for devs in the first place, expanding variability will become pain in the ass in future. Provided we'll get any updates before it dies, mheh. Seen some cool skirmishes though, looked quite nice and intensive with current system.Overall looks like pve is foreign to this game and was grafted quick'n'dirty onto pvp+crafting base. Pro pve players won't be satisfied with this. Pvpers and crafters can be self sustained and don't even need pve parts. So it exists now only to help solo players advance.
>>362132>Can a dev team that is slowly bleeding talent finally complete a good game after every other one has flopped because the guy who has final say is a profit-driven businessman with no industry experience?No.
>>370695>Is it just game/mmo #739It is this.The game barely passes as a functional mmo and is generic as hell.The problem is there has not been a good mmo for over 10 years so most people either have no clue what a good mmo looks like or are so desprit for a mmo that at least reaches the level of functional mediocrity that when one finally arrived they act like it is a god send.
The PVP... let's face it, it's dog shit, it's not fun or intuitive. Abilities and Basic attacks feel like they are locked on, as long as you point at the thing or person you want to attack and are in range. You literally cant miss.Most the idiots playing it are PvE retards who enjoy sitting around sipping on hot cum and "Crafting". This is a Low skill cap MMO. It has a low ceiling and a narrow floor.
https://youtu.be/qZ5LhsdcrgkI cannot believe that this is what pvp used to look like. How in the world do you fuck up so bad and why in the world would you make such a drastic change to your combat fundamentals so late into development? It genuinely looks like an entirely different game than current live beta.
>>372223Yeah, this is the reason I'm not playing the game. Compared to before, the combat now is a complete joke, and they literally changed it based on the ignorant feedback of people who played like 3 hours rather than alpha players who had 1000s of hours. The even more pathetic thing is that it could have been completely avoided with even basic tutorials that explained the combat fundamentals. Instead they treated as gospel whining from noobs who couldn't grasp complicated concepts such as letting go of the SHIFT key or not spamming their skill buttons with 0 stamina.Guess we should have known though. They completely changed the core concept of their game after 3 years of development in favor of a generic theme park that doesn't jive with the games own mechanics, just based on complaints of people who weren't even their target demographic.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk5qWY-y44g
