    Too bad, because the videos really got me hooked.

     

    Ill stick to veers elite and the other one I'm playing.

    I was thinking the same thing. The only perma death in SWG was in the early days of the jedi grind and there was no looting corpses. Personally I'm looking forwad to the Repopulation. 

    I also agree.  I played SWG from Day 2 (Day 1 the servers barely ran lol) and i seen what Perma death did to my friends who played.  It sounds good however in the MMO world it does not work unless you want only a few thousand players at best.  Your Average MMO player will not play these type of games.

    Same here, day 1 vet (yes I actually managed to log on for a short bit) and Defiance doesn't look interesting at all.

    For SWG folks Defiance surely isn't all that interesting.  Divergence, however, is what they're talking about here and if it weren't for the whole ffa pvp nonsense it looked interesting, to me.

    Shroud of the Avatar, now that game is the one I am watching closely to bring some of that real open world gameplay feel.

    Just in case people don't know, SWG was never hardcore.  Yes, it was a sandbox with some cool features.  There was no forced pvp.  There was even themepark features. /gasp  In fact, they were officially called themeparks. 

     

    Divergence is a hardcore, FFA pvp, with chance of permadeath MMO.  Not many of the SWG refugees are in to this.  So don't expect them to be all over this game, if it even releases.

    Hello,

    so you say Star Wars Galaxies? That was a great game, does Divergence have some sort of space ships simulation too or is it ground gameplay only? I will keep this on ""my radar"" ;)

    Cheers

    I'm not an awesome pvper, I tend to be average at it. I like crafting stuff to be an actual help to my side. There is no way I can get into a game where I can get ganked while waiting to sell an item to a person. Why not set up crafters with a few friends? Have a few gank buddies hide a bit away, get a crafter to bring some goods you want to 'buy', then take them off his corpse? Sorry, total free for all anything goes pvp is a bit much for people who aren't hardcore pvper's. We lose too much being killed by some jerkoff kid who just wants to mess with someone. They just get off on the power they feel ruining a few days work for someone. It's not immersion, it's not hardcore, it tends to revert backto seventh grade cruelty. 'Cause I can' attitudes wreck it for me, and I bet for others too.
