    It will never become another Albion Online considering how many AO bugs the team has to reproduce to become a true copy.

    I'm watching this game with interest. I'm currently playing Albion Online, but if Arcfall can get it's economy and PvP right, then I think it might give Albion a run for its money.

    The fact it's going to have consensual PvP (whereas Albion doesn't) is a big selling point in my book.

    There will be certain situations where PvP will be forced on you for 30 min if you are greedy or do something bad like stealing, no matter what your Karma is at. But it will be your choice still. Just the rewards might be worth it. Or if you see a dead body laying there from another player, the urge to take his stuff might be to big.

    Yeah looks like Albion and i WISH...PRAY that developers would quit ruining immersion with stuff like nameplates,i don't need to see Brown chicken over the head of the brown chicken.If i want to learn/understand a npc then i would click it but nameplates littering the screen are just so 1980 and should not be in game anymore.

    We will be adding that option to turn names off into Arcfall for sure as its a players preference what he wants to see.

    I wish they would quit ruining immersion with cash shops. I assume this is not going to be the case though.

    Our aim has been to get out of pre-alpha by October and Alpha by January 2018 and full release mid next year. As we have been making faster progress than expected we will be moving out of pre-alpha on the next update on the 25 August which means there is a good chance we will have our full release in early next year.

     They are not forcing PvP on players?   Weird, nowadays so many games don't give you a choice.  Need to check this out after this big update.

    If you played Ultima Online before, you're surely like this game :) and if you did not, be sure to check it out and join dicord channel for further questions you will have.

    I know it's early still but what is the playerbase like in terms of how many people are on at any given time?

    I'd say that right now, not that much cause everyone is waiting for new patch update and there will be a wipe. So you can wait to see the playerbase in 25th of this month. Cause i bought this game couple of days ago i don't have idea on how many player plays this game.

    Ah okay, yea I was going to wait until then to really look at it but was just curious. Are you liking it so far? I'm an old school UO player, had high hopes for Albion Online but really didn't like the direction they went with that game. Hoping this one will be more my style.

    Well right now i really like it tho i don't want to invest time in it cause there will be a wipe with the new patch coming. My only wish is that the playerbase would expend a lot more than we are right now :)

    Does this game have any sort of character development and character building? I am not into games without caps or games where everyone is exactly like everyone else besides equipment like Albion Online and games of that ilk. UO has character builds and caps.

    Yes you build your characters skills up by doing things with it like Swordsman Skill will increase every time you swing a sword. There is around 24 different skills right now and more being added. Skill levels of a skill unlocks abilities. Each skill can go up to a max of 1000 points and you can have a max of 7000 points in total for all skills together so you can only dabble in a few skills to max to build a character or in many skills at a much lower level which makes every build different dependent on what type of character you want. You can lock,unlock or set skills to go down on the fly.

    I cant stand games with inherent level (or skill) caps. The second I log in to a game and realize I can no longer progress my character's stats or abilities, I'm done playing that game. Tired of end game gear only advancement. If this is their stance on progression Albion will crush them.

    You mean that broken game with forced PvP that almost nobody plays?  Sure, sure it will
