[Preview] Sevencore: Taking A Unique Approach

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 17,036MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Sevencore is a new offering in the gPotato stable of MMOs. We've got a first look preview of Sevencore that might give some new insight into the game. See what we've got to say and then leave your ideas in the comments.

On the surface, Sevencore looks very much like any other indie F2P adventure. It has the usual claptrap of quests, character building, and cash shops that hum "moh-money-moh-money" but scratching a little deeper uncovers a game lovingly crafted by its developers. In a world of satisfied clones, this MMO stands apart, its back pockets bulging with scraps of paper all detailed with the type of innovative ideas triple-A companies would love to steal a glance at. Yes, it is totally worth that metaphor.

    I would love it if MMORPG.COM didn't waste news space with gPotato crap..

    I always suspected some gPotato games could be accessed without their dashboard. Or is it the publisher you have a problem with? They're pretty wifty about some things.

    Where was the innovation AAA games will want to steal? Must have missed it.

  • SneakyRussianSneakyRussian ?????, SCPosts: 54Member

    There is zero innovation in SevenCore. All I saw was WoW.


    3 Classes? Pass....I don't care how "in depth" you can "customize" them in a THEMEPARK. It isn't innovative.

    The movement of the characters is awful. The quests are even worse. What customization? Warriors can't even use a shield. Even the skills are too generic. I rolled the giant looking race to be an awesome looking tank. I can't tank and I look so goofy.

    Ive got to admit I dont really see the innovation either. Just as examples:

    Weekly battles between guilds for control of a region and the ability to tax the region, etc - Was done in Rohan, another F2P, several years ago (like 5 years IIRC). They also had "minor" battles between guilds a couple of times a week for lesser rewards.

    Political elections have been done in several games, such as RF Online. Another F2P thats been around for something like 6-7 years. Not to mention it was a hell of a lot more in-depth than this. You had a Race Leader, 2 Consuls, 2 Assaulters, 2 Defenders, 2 Supporters. The RL and 1 of each position were elected. The other 1 of each position were appointed by the RL. That was also per race, with 3 different races. So you had a grand total of 27 government positions. This game, if im understanding it correctly, has the single head of state position.

    And again with RF Online you had 3-4 base classes depending on race, but through picking different options you wound up with completely different playstyles / builds.

    In 1 race you could pick a Ranger base then wind up with a ranged stealth / trapper class, a mobile ranged dps class, or a Striker which relied on rocket launchers and siege kits which made them stationary artillery units capable of 1-2 shotting most people. Other races also offered things like a crit/stun locking class, a super speed / dodge class, or a hard hitting class with extreme range and the ability to net in place.

    In another race you could go with a Spiritualist (mage) base and work your way into either a pure casting DPS class, a support class with telportation and defensive buffs, or a summoner class. Another race allows you to be an uber healer instead of having summons.

    With melees you could go into being a combination debuffer & massive dps, a cross of dps and defense, or a nearly unkillable tank.

    With the Specialist class you could go into various specializations such as different forms of support (resing, buffing), a class that plants multiple guard towers to attack enemies, or a class that rides around in giant mechanized units.

    Yeah. Dont really see whats special about what theyre doing here.

    I've played both English versions of this game and there is a good reason why gpotato gave this guy a press account with a high-level character.

    There are a TON of content gaps in this game between levels that a player pretty much ends up grinding on repeatable quests using item turns-in (that thankfully do stack to high amounts) but sooner or later the experience starts to become so dismal that it becomes unbearable.

    All you have to do is read the forums to really grasp the many problems this game has right now, it truly needs a complete over-haul in so many places. [i](assuming enough people actually care about Sevencore)[/i]


    But in all honestly the only advise i can give to people is to experience the problems and issues for yourselves, and for the love of god... do not take an article seriously written by someone who was handed a press account, because that clearly does not properly convey the actual gaming experience Sevencore offers, even if the leveling experience wasn't complete hell, which it is.

    Well the developers can't be very smart going with gpotato.  My guess this game is a hands off for many of us just because of that.

    Yes, Gpotato are NOT known for their quality products. In fact, they're known for where poor quality products go for milking.

    Sevencore is not really a good game, alot of redundant skills.  Few skills attack skills actually reduce DPS as oppose to increase it.

    It's a poor game, with very little upside to take you away from any current MMO you are playing.

    1. you get grinding in any mmo you play.

    2. what's with the gpotato hate.  just cause of there portal juess all you do is go to sevencore's website log in download the game and play it simple.


    3.   reaptable quests are just another name for daily quests expect reapable quests can be taken more then a set amount.


    4. skills well no problem with them i can easily kill a monster.


    5. more classes are coming if you keep up with the lastest news. but like some people here said they don't care so they won't know.

    6. This is a quality product!  few problems yeah but don't every game had problems?


    6. it may have content gaps sure name me games what don't have that's why they have UPDATES. maybe it's a small deveopler team.  try out the other v of sevencore then you will see if there's any content gaps.

    The game looks stale and boring and innovates NOTHING, however you sugar coat it. Plus, gpotato? Really? No one should ever be excited about one of their games, it'll just devolve into an ignored, pay2win, crappy grindfest with numerous flaws and balance problems that will be set aside for adding CS content. Just no, they are probably one of the worst mmo publishing companies in the industry. I would rather take a forgein company that cant speak english and rarely update their games. Gpotato goes out of their way to make their games WORSE.
