    Yeah- I believe a Volenteer made that for them since they were unable to do it themselves and it works (worked?) very poorly. Not sure if they fixed it yet. =/

    -Please try again. And please report back how your trial went. Remember, any PR is good PR according to some.

    Nothing basically. I just decided that it was time to call this another dead shot? Don't you think? :|

    I do. The potential writer clearly had an agenda and his boss was emailed with links to his post(s) on the MOFO.

    It doesnt take this long to crank out propaganda and since there is no article, I too think its dead in the water. There was clearly a conflict of interests and onrpg didnt want the bad PR which was certainly going to come had this article been released.

    -Good for them.

    So the question is how much is henrick is paying you for the review?
  • xDayxxDayx St Charles, MOPosts: 712Member

    I'm a previous player and previous WSX member also. Here's my review...

    The game's concept is awesome, but executed poorly. If you have never played Mortal I would recommend to just for the experience.  You may enjoy it for some time but will probably end up becoming frusterated because of bugs or things SV continues to ignore. 

    Concept= 10 

    Execution of Concept=3 or 4

     exactly.

    i give SV and Herink incredible credit for coming up with the concept and vision for this game. IF this game had had talented programmers it would been an awesome game.

    sadly they did not have the execution down, they did not have programmers, they did not have money or talented coders.... and never did more then rubber band/duct tape crap together. So this game plays like a piece of crap.

    still as a concept it's been one of the most exciting things in the last 4/5 years.

    Priceless!!! imageimage

    not really what i see, he makes a thread on the MO forums about the MO donations so players can psot thier opinions of it. I dont see him helping sv by advertising their donations. For him to be doing that he would have to make a post on a site not accociated with the game. So hold off on the dnacing bananas until he does.

     

    I do however suspect him of being a mod or gm.

    there are 2 types of mmo, imitators and innovaters.

    He wasnt a mod or a gm back in the days of TC patch. He stoped playing shortly cause of bugs and now he is back cause Awakening made the game awesome.

    Yeah i said the games concept is awesome. I dont think anyone here can dispute that. In other words on paper it sounds great. Dont argue just to argue... We all know henrick failed. Life goes on.

    Umm....The fan based "review"  highlighted in this post came our yesterday.

     

     

    "Editor’s Note: This review was actually completed 2 weeks prior to the announcement that Mortal Online was going F2P. As such there is no mention of it."

     

    Funny, most of the "review" was done before  he even said he was writing a "review". Guess they just recycle the same old script.

    Agree with you. IMO, biased and uncritical reviews will make more damage than good to MO. It would only confirm other rage posts on these forums and cause greater dissapointments. Still, have to wait for part 2 of review.

    On paper ANY game can sound awesome. Anyone can come up with a good idea. It is how the idea is executed that means anything. So the fact they executed the idea so badly is why the game is dead.

    It seems SV revealed and promised way too much during the launch, instead of presenting ground concept of game being hardcore PvP and promisning polishing of current released features. Concept of game is "We have game that can make your every hardcore sandbox dream cometrue", but it should have never been revealed in that way. It should have been more "We are going towards hardcore sanbox dream cometrue, but we have these basic, but for MOO unique, sandbox features which we shall polish during development". Dissapointment would be far less, and development far more focused. And when new features and content is released, effect would be more asstonishing and surprise element would benefict the players feelings toward game.

    Currently, players anticipate features promised long time ago and unfortunately leave when patience treshold is stepped over.

    Looks more like an ad piece than an actual review. The guy basically lists MO's features and says they're all awesome. Then he throws in some irrelevant "negative" stuff like strecthed textures, so that he'll look less of a fanboy. Can't say it helps though since he don't mention any of MO's core issues - like the multiple gamebreaking bugs, the rampant duping and exploiting, and the corrupt GMs.

    In the commentary section he even admits that he loves the game for crying out loud. Not very unbiased.

    Are they censoring the comments or none really bothers calling him out?
  • HancakesHancakes flint, MIPosts: 1,045Member

    I think must of us knew how this "review" would turn out back in October,

     

    Its not surprising given this hacks contributions to Starvault

    -Stayed up all night to be one of the first to pre-order the game. I miss those nights in IRC pre-beta/pre-order
    -Played since Beta Block A
    -I have always been an Anti-PK
    -Helped a lot of newbies in my time.
    -I put out some Mortal videos on youtube (youtube.com/ApocaRUFF)
    -I post about the game in many other forums
    -I write reviews on Mortal, and often compare it to other sandboxes and other MMO's to make sure people understand what the game is really about
    -I make sure everyone I know is aware of every Mortal update as soon as I can, which is often right after they go up.
    -I participate in events whenever I can, especially PvE type events. In PvP events I usually act as a spectator, sometimes recording it (usually for private use, so you wont find most of my PvP videos on my channel as they
    are unlisted).

    Yeah... Shame on him for liking the game!!! This can´t be true!!! He is bought by SV!!! etc. Or maybe he just likes it. You know. There ARE people out there. That don´t hang here hating MO 24/7 that ACTUALLY DOES like it. I know. Crazy right. But let´s wait for part 2. So all you out there. You know who you are. Get rdy to sharpen those knives...

    A review is supposed to be done by someone with a neutral perspective when starting the review.  This was an advertorial piece, not a review. I mean, even members of the Focus Group for SV are saying he went overboard on the love.  Let's see what the second part contains though.  He claimed to be more realistic there. 

     

    As Hancakes pointed out, the guy openly posted in the "What have you done for Mortal Online" thread listing all the things he had done (review writing is one of them) to "help promote the game".   When you are trying to promote the game you are not "reviewing it" you are advertising for it.  There is quite a difference.

    He is doing it for ONRPG. I don´t think they would approve of him advertising MO there. Go there and call him out, and we´ll see if they fire him or let someone else review it. I think you´ll be disapointed though. It´s funny that as soon as someone likes MO, there MUST be a hidden agenda. I love you all.

    And thank GOD they actually have a guy that likes sandboxes that reviews it. I thought it was a good first part. He brought out what MOs is all about, and also brought out some things that aren´t so good. And I reckon he will continue doing this. But to some here, if someone says ANYTHING good about MO, the same old song gets played on MOs forum here. And that song is as boring as a Justin Bieber song by now... :P

    Also Slappy. R u enjoying GW2 still?

     

    Edit. And it´s funny to see the guy having to defend him for posting thousands of times on MO forums. But he apperantly have done thousands of post on DF forum as well etc. Just goes to show that he is a true sandbox player, and is the right person to review it.

    Theres nothing hidden about his agenda, it's pretty obvious.  MO was given a bad review by Massiveley, so they find a good "review".  Which just bhappens to be written by one of the biggest MO supporters. He said most of the review was finished before he even started playing again after Awakening. image
