2:14 Dragon breathing fire. 2:24 Racing Cars. At that point + the video went off into something else for me. Seems a huge step away from armored horses charging into combat. Okay, a wedding isn't bad, but beach resort with modern swimwear followed with Hawaiian Ts haha wth?

Edit: Looks like I'm a tad late, as these features have been presented a week or so ago too.

    Most of these features are in the game since May, you are late with months not a week...

    So you are saying that this game doesn't fit what your ideal of what a fantasy game should be?

    Not so keen on Swimwear and Cars either................
  • dandurindandurin Santa Clara, CAPosts: 493Member

    Yeah, I could do without the cars but I think this is a pretty impressive video.

     

    They are clearly trying to broaden the appeal of the game to (largely female) Sims players, and if they can pull that off more power to them.

    Cars and Swimwear is nothing compared to gender/race locks and classes only able to use 1 or 2 weapons. I'm still going to play the shit out of this awesome game.

    The game will have one of the worst communities in any MMO to date.  Just saying.

    Yeah, I have to say, the cars and modern swimwear just jump the shark for me. Some may not think it's that big a deal, but I think it detracts from the pseudo medieval setting just a bit too much.

    Up until now, I was excited about this game but apparently Asian MMO's like to mix high fantasy with modern day which doesn't really appeal to me at all. I mean, swords, spells and castles mixed with race cars, swim suits and other modern era items? I'm not saying it's bad or wrong, but I don't understand the fascination with it. It's almost looking like SIMS Online more than an RPG MMO.

    The modern cars and swimsuits take the immersion out.  Seeing the castles and dragons and warriors on steeds in armor....then a race car passes you?  Something seems off about that.

    I feel the same way, i was soo looking forward to this game. But all the recient crap, change in trade skills, and Trion playing idiots not releasing any info on progress. I have little to look forward too it seems. Least EQN info coming out soon.

    Yes, I was following this game far more a while back. I took some time to watch various youtube videos and catch up.

    Yes, and that when the racing cars popped up, my reaction was what the hell is going on now? Right before, they show all these horse cavalry charging, why don't they have the more advanced tank cavalry plowing through them?

    They create these more leisure activities that break the rest of the game's immersion for far more people than just me. From what I've seen, the more advanced technology is featured in leisure activities instead of warfare image What a joke.

    Totally agree.

    I hope Trion reconsider this...............

    They will never get over it, because the only fantasy world they know of and accept is the one Tolkien created, and any other fantasy setting is a blasphemy to them.

    the cars shouldn't even be that big of a deal. i've never read anything on this but to me if they have boats and all this other crazy shit, wth is a car to you ? or do you see a car and think oh present time in a medival type game ? is it impossible for cars or anything with a wheel to exist ? seems childish to me.

    You took the time to post about it yourself. Really bother ya? =)

     

    Seriously though, the immersion is busted up a bit. But then it is a fantasy game, and not all fantasy is HIGH fantasy, lots of the genre out there has all sorts of things going on that are not strictly Tolkeinesque.

    That said, the part of the vid that looks like an ad for a cruise in the Bahamas was pretty immersion killing for me.

    I can already see hundreds of players from GOON attacking everyone they can see, chasing them in race cars and dressed in swimsuits

    I fail to see the issue with swimsuits?  Name a successful game where you can't remove your clothes / armor?  Is a swimsuit really different than underwear and / or bra?

     

    On the car part, I hope I can run other players over :P  Why bother dismounting ..

    I have a question: Do the people that complain about archeage "modern" stuff (cars, swinsuits, etc) know anything about the Archeage lore to say so readily that these things don't fit it?

     

    From what i know, the Archeage world have a unknow and lost past that seens were more technologically advanced. Don't these things cant just be remnants of that ancient technology?

    "What we are aiming in ArcheAge is to let the players feel the true fun of MMORPG by forming a community like real life by interacting with other players, whether it be conflict or cooperation." (Jake Song)
