    There were many BGs in the past, but nowadays the server is very idle.

    You cant choose your character gender. The good part of it is that almost all female characters are genuine.

    The PVP system is as follows:

    - Permadeath.

    - 100% open world.

    - Full Loot

    - Very harsh consequences to pk (has some variations between zones).

    - Is gear-dependent, but the gear isn't so hard to acquire and the difference between the players is small or none.

    - There are few and weak buffs.

    - The HP recovery is very slow. There is not instant heal.

    - Is very meaningful.

     

    The PVE system:

    - Painfully grindish.

    - Is obrigatory PVE to avoid status damage or even permadeath.

    - You cant craft anything.

    - The economy is very strong, dinamic, complex and 100% player driven.

    -  To group is more obrigatory than optional.

    -  Politics, diplomacy and social behavior/skills are of extreme importance for the character progression.

    Tell me about it.  It starts out as free2play but you end up having to get a subscription.  Mounts and player housing is way too expensive but the game practially forces you to get them.  If you don't do your daily quests you can't pay for anything and then the GMs tax the crap out you.

    In my opinion, the game is doomed to fail.

    But we are doomed to play it anyway.

    So it's a losing game then.

    well thats reality though, it shows if your skilled or not

    and its free, you dont need to pay to feel better for your skilled successes

     

    because you cant feel good from it like from fake video games(that you pay to say how awesome you are when you win a line of predetermined commands. That was intentionally planned by a developer that wants money) doesnt mean its bad for everyone

    aka

    because you cant succed there and need to pay games to feel successful doesnt mean everyone hates it and isnt capable of success

     

    only bad thing is that it lacks immortality for the few :p

    I regret buying the lifetime sub.

    The longer you  play the weaker you get...should be the opposite.  Permadeath sucks.  Too many diseases, too much downtime.  Why do some players get more skill points and bonuses when they start their character...totally unfair.

     

    I'm gender locked.  Not enough customization options. Body slider?

    They made so you have to eat and drink or you can die in a permadeath setting, and you have to check their quality because some can cause you a lot of unwanted illnesses short term and long term, and then you're stuck having to buy pills, which sucks if you don't have enough gold.

    They also allow smoking and drinking alcohol, though unlike the other MMOs, you can really taste their feels, and smoking smells, they should change it to a strawberry smell.

    It's a sandbox in which most people have no clue what to do so they play it like a themepark.
  • futnatusfutnatus SomeplacePosts: 193Member

    The difficulty scales up ridiculously, and like almost everything its geographically/faction dependant, and you can't even choose either of those for yourself.

    There's no magic and going with a melee build strictly can limit your gold income.  There are a lot of skills you can train in but when considering the gold income from each profession, you rather train in just a specific few.  Totally imbalanaced.

    true, imo its funny how most gamers hate irl and love games while being in denial about why they do it even if the truth is in front of their own very eyes. Blaming the world for being bad and not fun(sorry the problem isnt in the world) and never looking at themselves cuz based on what games tell them, they are awesome unique heroes who do great stuff

     

    everyone gets what they deserve in life and what they deserve is based on their skill and not how good or nice you are..

    I guess thats where the saying comes from "You can be as bad as you are capable but the opposite doesnt apply"

    Real life has many faces and one of them the VC feared very much, was in the night when the Men with green faces would come.

    I think you're taking this thread too seriously.  Roleplaying is nice but you've got to step out of characters sometimes.  RL is about as much skill based as it is luck based.  On top of that it also depends on what kind of skills you leveled up - you may can play the spoons like nobody's business but don't expect to release a hit album doing it.

    Did someone craft you a bowl of cheerios with pee?

    Game is totally pay to win, and even worse its a pay to play title. Cash shop op.

    Crafting have such a steep and long learning curve I can't be bother with it.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    The in-game economy is currently pretty screwed up.
