    Know any good exploits?

    I haven't reached that part of the game yet. But i believe it has something to do with collecting a lot of food, drinks, class training (also known as education i believe), shelter and a lot of money.

    But it should be easyer with the punishment skill, did you unlock that one yet? If you want to discipline them you can give them a wide arrange of punishments like being grounded or no candy for a week. Be aware depending on the childs parameters one punishment has a better effect than the other. The removed the more harsh punishments in some regions of the massive world. Like it used to be alright to give them a correction kick under the ass but they removed that from most regions, so just becareful on some punishments there is a ban (agian whats with implanting stuff and ban people for it when using, remove it devs!!!).

     

    Oh and do a lot of those "themepark" dungeons. It seems to have a positive effect on these NPC childs. Makes them easyer to control and the love parameter fills up faster that way. Meaning less trouble for a day at least.

     

    Goodluck with that difficulty, though i believe you mostly only have to endure it for about 18 lvls.

    Well i said it was in the game. But not everyone grinds for it. And some regions/factions indeed make it harder to own a ingame house. Than again those regions do stimulate being creative, many cases you collect a few objects and make something you can call shelter.

    Killing 10 rats when you are 1 is not recommended.

    I beg to differ there are tons of bugs.

    Everything that's created functions as it should.

    my wife doesnt. besides this game is too grindy from lvl 20+. endgame not that impressive as well. and too bad i can only play it once, its pretty good game sometimes.

    Playing: Rohan
    Played (from best to worst): Shadowbane, Guild Wars, Shayia, Age of Conan, Warhammer, Runes of Magic, Rappelz, Archlord, Knight online, King of Kings, Kal online, Last chaos

    RL is so unrealistic.  Yesterday I killed a rat and it didn't drop any good loot! Not even a grey quality axe or something! I mean WTF?!

    This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

    In general it is not recommended for any level, unless it is your chosen proffesion

    Actually you can cook the rat. While in general not really accepted by the community and for a lot of people it might fill up the disgusted meter. You can still do it and get something out of the kill. You could also try to make very small boots out of it. 

    BTW: If you want cosmetic drops then you really should go after "Human - Female" NPCs!

    You have to have a skinning knife, you get some fur that way atleast. But keep in mind that this gives minor points with the "peta" faction.

    Till now. But future graphics will be equal/superior to real life and you can show anything you can image.

    Permadeath

    Which sucks.

    Full loot

    Which sucks.

    43243243 of professions

    Most are boring and not good for your health at all.

    You can literally own people. You can become a king/ruler.

    Which sucks for everone else.

    You can go 1 vs MANY and many more

    And loose most of the time.

    No one can change/nerf your character abilities/skills at any given will

    Are you kidding ? Believe me, your abilities/skills can be nerfed.

    Top of the art player housing

    Must obey physical laws. Not required in MMOs -> more possibilities.

    Mini games

    Agreed.

    It can't be more immersive than it is.

    Agreed.

    The stakes are higher and the loot is far more enjoyable.

    The stakes ARE higher and the loot usually is crap.

    One server supporting billions of players.

    At the expense of any other lifeform on earth.

    It will be around and running until your character dies.

    Probably yes. So agreed.

    The attitude in "trade chat" is far different and mature since everyone knows your identity.

    No difference really.

    Oh and yea it's SANDBOX not themepark. Player driven economy, quests, etc.

    True.

    The amount of players who are bored, unhappy and quitting it is below 0.1% (thats the suicide rate)

    Add to this the amount of people who are not happy ;)

    The endgame is still evolving. So many technologies, innovations and worlds unknown out there.

    Agreed.

    Most refuse to believe that real life is a "game" cuz thats how addicted and fooled are by its reality and complexity.

    *shrug*

    0 BUGS

    Are you serious ? There are more bugs than any MMO will ever have. MMO's don't even get close to it.

    Animations are perfect.

    Just because you accept them as they are. Do you really think it looks great how a turtle walks ?

    Combat involves FAR FAR more skills and gear also do matter a lot.

    Only few skills really matter.

    You can do anything you want well if your intelligent enough and at least once in your lifetime.

    Try living in another country...

    No LAG, DISCONNECTS

    There are, the next bus hitting you is just around the corner.

    No BOTS, HACKS, CHEATS, EXPLOITS

    What ? There are more of those than ever possible in an MMO.

    You sound like a real life fanboy. No offense intended. ;) Life can be great , but for many people it isn't and it is not always their fault.

    Not what i heard. I heard there is no end game, its just game over once you reached the highest lvl. Nothing else to do anymore. Infact for most players the higher lvls mean nothing more than just sitting behind windows all day (even the apple fans do that wtf O.o) looking at how other players walk down the streets and quest, nothing else much to do for them.

     

    Its mostly stuff for the lower and mid lvls that benefit from the technologies and inovations. But the end game is so boring that people massively quit around the highest lvl.

     Yeah, with a lot of real money you can pwn nearly everyone. Couldn't be a bigger difference between the haves and the havenots. Other than that, the 'no cheats' is probably debatable as well. But it's a nice OP, worth a smile.

    Can I hack things up with a bladed weapon without consequences?

     

    Can I summon a fireball in my very hand and heave it off,watching amused as the destruction it causes lights up my foes?

     

    can I summon lightning from the sky at my beckoning?

     

    why is there only one race to play?

     

    I prefer adventuring as a means to make my living,not in some suit and tie spewing garbage out of my mouth towards others while time slips away closer to 'permadeath'...which makes it all meaningless to me in the end..

     

    i prefer not to be a slave to pieces of paper.......

     

    this mmo sucks.

    What do you mean there is only one race to play? You got many different races and sub races. You got the human race, and they come with all kind subraces with their own starting area. And than there are many other races like dogs, cats, whales, etc to choose from. Don't blame the game for rolling you as a generic human. Just be glad it didn't roll you as a one day fly, i heard those guys are screwed. They get to play just for one day before perma death kicks in.

     That's true as well, if you're confined to a wheelchair or worse, fighting cancer or some equally devastating disease, then you'd probably find a virtual world where you can do wonderful things quite superior to real life.

    If you were born to poor parents in a poor country then real life probably isn't as superior as it is for some other people.

    What? Horrible game is horrible. Good graphics is all it as.

    Bad character creater because you can't choose anything. Locked gender and only human.

    HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE grind for everything. P2W. Permadeath is bad.

    Worst PVE ever. period. Worst economic in an mmo i've ever seen. Enourmous sub fees for multyple things  every month.

    And i could go on forever.

     

    OP, this game won't go F2P. By the end ofthe year, this POS game will shut down. And then we'll all be happier to not have to play it ever again.................

    I dont like the community of that game to much...

    Its hard to be the hero in that game...

    I prefer easier games...

    I can´t stand loosing...

    Its Buy to Win...

    Character creation is dumb, you got no influence at all...

     

    And on top of that, its unfair and cruell, to much randomness and it has the worst AI ever.

    Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

    It is very debatable if the game has bugs or not.

    In fact, most people believe it is bugged to death and should be completely revamped. Many blame some mythical pr0 hax0r who broke the code with the help of the first players. And in Asia, a popular belief is that the game is so bad it's not worth playing, so you should quit, the problem here being that they also don't believe it's permadeath.

    Another feature of Real Life I enjoy is that I can send other people on quests for a small price.

    RealLife was rushed out the door due to corporate pressure. This game could have used another 10 million years of development before launch.

    And there are 554324 of other features I could add here that make real life far more superior MMORPG than any of these hundreds of MMORPG's that been coming out over the last decade that refused to even add one of  those features that I named above.

    Props to UO and SWG-Pre CU who at least had SOME of those features back like PLAYER housing and player economy.

    To OP's point, real life is a great "MMORPG-type" experience.  

    Personally, I have taken up hiking, and with backpack, walking stick, and belt knife, I feel like I am adventuring, in a sense, when I step out into the woods.  There is still "the journey" out there, might not be the Great Frontier it was in the 19th century, but there is still the exhiliration of living and adventuring in Nature.

    Considering the universe is 14.6 billion years old, 10 million more years isn't that much more time to get things done.  Do sub atomic particles get paid by the hour?  You may need to give them some over time.

    Don't forget that you automatically die at max level, and that the max level is more or less random too.

     

    Real life sucks big time as a MMORPG:

    - The character creator sucks, it's mostly random.

    - 99.9% of the players won't be heros but just scrubs.

    - If someone hits you with a sword, it will hurt badly. Very badly. It may kill you in one hit (see next point). Most of the times, you will actually WISH is had killed you, so much it hurts. Therefore PvP sucks badly in real life.

    - Permadeath.

    - Max level means auto death (see previous point).

    - You can't become some "immortal god". Even if you become the world boxing champion, or some highly trained soldier mastering all kind of weapons, a simple teenager can still stab you with a knife or shoot you in the head and kill you (in one hit again). NOTE: this isn't automatically a bad thing, btw - real life includes "level downscaling" =P

    - If you try to behave like in a MMORPG, you will most likely end in jail rather quickly.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.
