    I loled at who the big houses were knowing how it all turns out.

    If it's like the books you're better off just stickng to your own business.

    Wow, no offense but really? I think what you guys are really looking for is a game not based around war and violence (think the SIMS mmo).  Even if you mostly PvE games like Wow and AoC are so much better on PvP servers IMO.  You should have to watch your back - after all these games are all about war.  I also feel like PvE only servers have really taken the instanced battlegrounds to a new level (sorry there is some puck in my mouth).

    Non PvE is another way you dont have to interact with players, its another way MMO's are become Single player games with instanced grouping (pve and pvp).

        Now my comment above was not meant to be a jest.  If you dont like war and violence a sandbox game could be made where fighting or killing is not an option.  (the Sims or something like that - are there not korean sandbox games currently where people buy things get married etc..)

    First BSG and now GoT.. how does Bigpoint Games manage to get these IP's just to ruin them?

  • FadedbombFadedbomb Aiken, SCPosts: 2,081Member

    Please do not judge the game model of "Sandbox" by piss poor companies like BigPoint making horrible messes of decent IPs.

     

    This won't be a sandbox.

    BigPoint will fail yet AGAIN with another large IP (look up BSG:Online, supposedly another "sandbox" by BigPoint).

    The MMO market as a whole will reject them completely.

    Hopefully BigPoint never gets another decent IP ever again.

    I'd add:

     

    (VERY VERY likely) pay to win = bad

    browser based = bad

    and because its so bad that it deserves to count twice, BigPoint = bad

     

    5/6 bad for me

    Browser games are the future in my opinion and unity already showed it.

    Unity html5 w/e.. bring us those .

    Sounds good, will wait for actual information to make any judgment.

  • xenogiasxenogias warsaw, INPosts: 1,926Member

    Damnit. I read BigPoint and "not pay to win" and spit my coffee out. Sad that this IP is doomed to fail before it even gets started.

    If hypothetically the scenery the political system etc etc will come true the game's success will be determined on one factor. Combat system. If it works its fluid and addicitve this game has a good chance to mark the mmorpg scenery like wow did on its own unique way ofc. Sandboxers could find find their wow and themepark lovers a good chance to try a quality sandbox mmorpg. Time will show as always what this game will be.

    I don't knooooow, this whole thing smells fishy to me. Browser based? BigPoint?! What the hell is going on!

    I loved Game of Thrones but I dunno. Browser based, Company that seems to have a bad history. Seems like a recipe for disaster. I really hope it does well but I wont be surprised if another IP is butchered because of a shitty mmo company.

    1. One free for all server where everyone kills everyone without any intellectual thought going on.

     

    2. One server with the Horselords, The Undead whatchamacallits of the far north, and the seven kingdoms, go to war.  Three factions right there. 

     

    Everyone's happy.  Will it happen?  Nope.  Theyll have horseclans filled with guys from all over, no concept of racial variation that the movie provides.  Horselords will be working the wall lol.  It will have zero lore because the industry is as lazy as those who will log in. 

     

    Sad but true.  Don't believe me?  Look at the games we have in today's market.  Hey look, I'm right.

    I think a lot of people have a misconception of browser based games, tech has come a long way.

    A good of example of a decent looking game that is browser based is battlefield Play4free.

    Sandbox is Mortal Online, and Xsyon. Xsyon has like zero focus on pvp in open world. And if everyone werent pussy from too much WoW, some of the best games I ever played that were open world pvp, like Neocorn, would be better.. PvE Focused games, like SW:TOR fail and areans are getting real boring. Just wait till China comes and rolls us and everyone is trying to call there attorneys etc.

    Is it just me or do they seem to be using 'Sandbox' in the 'We can't be bothered creating content so here is big open world have at it' sense... or are you actually going to be able to affect the world in more ways than just taking keeps?
