Worth Subbing??

EthianEthian Montreal, QCPosts: 1,216Member

Is it worth subbing to FE with the F2P model so close? I'm half way through the trial and just reached level 10. I decided I'd like to go further but the only opition is to either sub for 1 month until it goes F2P or wait until Oct. 12th. Are others subbing to the game or are most of the new players waiting until it goes F2P to play on a regular basis?

    Its worth subbing in my opinion. Others may disagree of course. FE is a great game for the right crowd.

    kind of silly not to wait until oct 12 when it will be "free"

    The f2p conversion is starting Oct 12, just wait if you can.  I'd play the trial until then.  You can go check out the new payment model I am sure on their website as there are several plans to choose from.

    it's worth, cus now you get 1 month for 15$, and for the rest of your sub you become commander (after the f2p conversion), wich costs 30$. on top of that if you create toons now while you're subbed, they remain unlocked even if you continue playing as scavenger (the complete f2p plan), wich have only one slot for chars by default.

     

    check the matrix and decide for yourself. i just subbed few days ago.

     Unfortunatly, I'm going to have to say no. With the release of their latest patch (1.9.3), they eliminated if not alienated the PVE crowed. While one person on their forums argues that PVErs only make up a tenth of the population, that is false since they're basing that off of their clan. In fact, the PVE population is eight tenths of the population. However, with the latest patch, they made it difficult, if not impossible, to gather already hard to find crafting materials. Guess where you can find them now? Inside PVP zones. Which, of course, is camped by high level players looking to grief lower level players. Not much fun there. The game USED to be good, but now it's just terrible.

     While the crafting wasn't all that bad (it still had its issues, but it was doable), the patch made it even more difficult to craft all those great items everyone liked. Not to rehash that subject... To say nothing of the myriad of new bugs that were introduced. I could go on, but it would take way to long to even list them here.

     So to reiterate, no, it's not worth subbing, let alone resubbing. For those of you waiting for this game to go F2P, your better off just looking elsewhere.

    I didn't think so when I played it. It is more interesting and fun to play than Eve, but not by a whole lot. This is a low level perspective. When it's F2P though (is it now?) it would be well worth playing to see if you want to get into it.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    I can honestly say that Fallen Earth was the biggest let down I've ever had had in an MMO.

  • bugse82bugse82 pernikPosts: 185Member Uncommon

    then you didn't play enough MMOs...FE is great game IMO much better then most of the MMOs on the market.

    I decided to sub for 1 month ($15) for this reason. I plan to go F2P after my month runs out (I play pretty casually) so it will be nice to be able to play afew alts for free rather then having to buy them. 

    I'm assuming if I make 2-3 characters before the 12th that I can play them at any time after FE goes F2P...If this isnt the case then I wasted another $15 on a MMO...lol

    I think the biggest problem most players had with FE is that you have to craft in order to be any good.  It's the end of the world guys, if it was real, you'd have to make your own stuff.  As a crafter, I love this game.  People come to me all the time to buy guns, ammo, armor, buggies (oh i make so much money from buggies).  If there's one thing I can suggest is to specialize in armorcraft, ballistics, and science for crafting.  I have so many many chips, I swim around in them like Scrooge McDuck :)

     

    Edit: As for players trying to gank us crafters...that's why my whole clan runs with us to protect us, it's very realistic this way imho.  It's nothing like seeing some group coming upto us  in pvp and be like, "hey guys! Just strolling through ;P"  because they knows if they pulled anything, they'd be dead in about .5 seconds XD   ~20 (fully decked out characters) vs a 3-10 man gank squad...priceless :)

    I had played every one released in English Pre-2007. Since then, I haven't played every single one like before, but I have played quite a few. My numbers of MMOs played are well into the triple digits. Very few have I spent less than 10hrs on. (Furcadia and Habbo Hotel come to mind! lol)

    Close second to FE being a let down, was Darkfall. 

    FE is really nothing more than Second Life with a few and poorly implemented game mechanics. It's an RPer's Paradise, but not a great MMO. Subscription number decline backs me up.

    from dev's blog:

    Since free players only start with one character slot, what happens to my existing characters if I go Free2Play or Survivalist? If I already have four, will any be deleted? Will I have to choose which character(s) I want to keep?


    Absolutely not. If you had ever bought the game or paid for a subscription, those character slots were included with your game, so they belong to you regardless of the change in business model. No characters will be deleted, and you will not have to pick your favorite one or anything silly like that. When the game goes Free2Play, you can play all four.

    you're talkin' bullsh*t. it's great and fun experience for sandbox gamers. it has nothing to do with SL. stick with the themepark MMO's and don't troll, only cus you don't like sandbox games.

    I was not trolling. I was stating my opinion, there is a difference. 

    Nothing about FE was analayzed before release, so when it came out it quickly broke. Incarus didn't listen to it's player base, or listened to them too much, w/e one you want to chose, and focused their short staff in too many directions. Basically this all lead to a game where there wasn't much to do and no ideas were fully fleshed out into enjoyable experiences. It was just a Post-Apoc Simulator much like you find all over SL. Granted, items and combat worked better than they do in SL, but the overall mechanics of the game were so broken that the only people who found great enjoyment were those who really loved the aspect of RP. Nothing against those guys, or if you're one of them, but I'm not. I enjoy games, especially Sandbox games, but FE was not nearly close to being what would be expected of either of those.

    To me, FE was like playing in a sandbox with a a spoon and a broken plastic bucket. It was nothing but sand, with junk for me to mess around with. The only way to have fun in that situation is to use your imagination to fill in the huge void. This is where the RPers come in. Give me a sandbox with some cool tools to mess around with and I'll be there for hours!

    This is what a sandbox should be. Games like Ryzom, EVE, Pre-CU SWG, take away a few of those toys and you would have UO

    This is FE

  • bugse82bugse82 pernikPosts: 185Member Uncommon

    games like UO are no more. sad, but true.

    I would wait for F2P. Last patch with part 1 of the economy overhaul introduced some stupid changes. Any lone wolf type of player who wants to craft for his own survival will have a lot of trouble with last patch.

    - They made node locations completely random. This means if you explore and look for specific resources, you end up with a full inv of a lot of different crap before you even get a decent stack of the resource you were looking for. Random location means, next time its in different places again (except the PVP areas). I like exploring, but I dont like hit and miss dicerolls on gathering resources. Itll waste too much time imo.

    - They divided resources into common, uncommon, rare. Where the uncommon and rare types are now mainly found in the more dangerous areas. Which sounds nice on paper, but in practice it means PVP areas. Now, its just that if you want to spec for crafting, you gimp yourself for PVP. So expect gankers and certain clans to camp the better resource spawns.

    - Even PVP players are hit with this patch by removing bandages from NPC merchants. Which also sounds nice on paper because they want to move to a playerdriven economy. Except that the amount of cotton and crafting time you need to craft your own bandages and that they made cotton more difficult to get and the amount of bandages you go through with PVP. Well you understand.

    Current dev team seems to be the oldschool nerfbat kind. Something is too easy or convenient in their eyes, so they move in the exact opposite direction to make it just outright frustrating instead.

    I was going to play FE again after the move to F2P, but atm Im really checking each patch because I dont have much trust in this devteam. They dont seem to test anything before releasing their patch.
