I have wandered around for a few days and I love the concept of this game. I have a lot of fun exploring but I really have no reason to build anywhere but where I started building in my little safe zone. I assume eventually that sort of play will be discouraged because it's not very challenging and not very rewarding.
I was wondering if the dev team had considered some kind of 'resource dense' area that could move every so often, full of danger and rare materials. Something half the size of the war zone, something a few people could maybe defend and gather materials. I imagine the place would be under attack constantly by enemies, both NPC and player alike.
This sort of gameplay would highlight the idea of storming castles in groups, trying to fight over a nice reward. Something like a very large amount of Iron and other materials that you often have to search high and low for. It would be a risk that a few players might be willing to take.
It would have to move every so often because if it didn't, it would be highly unfair after a few players managed to get situated and could defend it and end up with a huge advantage. I was thinking if it moved daily, it wouldn't be worth the effort to spend a lot of time and resources on a large castle.
Hey. I picked up this game a few days ago. I have been playing a bit, but I really have no idea what I'm doing. Most people I run into high tail it away from me as fast as they can. I'm still in a starting area, I don't see why they would be scared.
Am I missing something?
Where are all the people at? I want to play with someone.
What kind of professional experience do you have with MMO's and their financial decisions? Your opinion is entitled, but come on man. Lighten up. The game is in Alpha and right now there isn't anything an opponent could buy that would make them any better at the game than you are.
All you're really doing is spitting in the face of the developers by saying things like "the game will probably die".
You know what. I'm sorry that a single person gets so mad they have to come onto a forum and bash a game they don't even own. No one is ruining anything with bad profit making decisions. There isn't any profit yet! They are using that money to develop the game further.
Who knows. Maybe a genuine pro/con of the system might persuade them to give it up in the end.
These developers are putting time and effort into making their dreams come true. Don't come onto their forum and bash them like your paid to do it. Give criticism and reasons. Give explanations. What could they do to make it better? You need to give more than just "oh I hate this"
