    Don't think they ever said anything about clan based PvP, I think author's statement in last paragraph is poorly chosen wording (I'm assuming that is what you are referring to). But even if it is, Toreador power set: Auspex (I can see you even through stealth, can't get a drop on me), Presence (you can't hit me, I'm too majestic, I can fear you, I can make you come to me at time and place of my choosing, ultimate CC power), Celerity (I can hit you multiple times in an eyeblink). Sure I'd play a Tory. :) Besides, if they are basing it off the latest ruleset most major combat powers can be learned out of clan without a teacher anyway.

     

    As for Salbri, based on info they presented to the fan club only seven base clans as PCs at game launch.

     

    EDIT: Apparently devs more recently stated game will only have "original clans" at launch. This is very ambiguous statement.

    This going to be another overly scripted, cut scene, story mmo?

     

    .. need more of those.. (sarcasm)

     

    The way mmo's were: Community, Exploration, Character Development, Conquest.

    The way mmo's are now : Cut-Scenes,Cut-Scenes, solo Questing, Cut-Scenes...

    As usual pedia is incorrect, or in this case incompleate. It was sceduled but never did. They remain in pre-production to this day.

    Who knows where development is though.  It sounds like it could be a couple years before release.

     

    Per the devs, 2015 at the earliest.

    A World of darkness MMO should be based on the mechanics from the pen and paper RPGs, nothing else and that is what CCP is doing. If you think that sounds just like TSW you really need to do your homework, WoDO will be nothing like TSW.

    And not using Eves mechanics with some slight modification is the right thing to do here, just repeating past successes and hope it will work as well is something companies like EA sports fo, not a great idea.

    I have been waiting a long time for someone to really translate a pen and paper RPG into a MMO, besides a few D&D versions we have nothing like that and there are plenty of better P&P systems than D&D.

    The best thing with CCP is that they dont copy everyone else, or for that matter themselves.

    Pretty sure CCP will do this game justice, can't wait.

    This game is far from being released. I will watch and see how the game develops like most on this site. Hope this one will be a good vamp game.

    you do know that white wolf (the creator is Vampire The Masquerade and Bloodlines) are also wokring on this? games that are the base for WoD and games that are way older then even TSW?

    ROFL you know white wolf and CCP are the same company, they merged years back...

    I usually avoid the open PvP games like the plague, for the usual reasons.  WoD, I am looking forward to with great interest.   Some of the usual irritants in MMOs, dumb leetduds and their goofy names, greifers and gankers, etc, all fit perfectly in the WoD world.  Just more ijit Sabat types; newly turned vamps.

     

    Given that CCP actually has a working understanding of how to develop this sort of thing, along with the original games' writing teams, WoD could end up being exceptional.  Fingers crossed.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

  • redcappredcapp brook, NYPosts: 722Member
    I'm interested because of the unique setting and obviously CCP.  Really hope they produce another epic sandbox here.  Way too early to even know what direction they're going in though.

    Will there be werevolves as well or is this for fanger-bangers only?

    Been looking forward to this for a long time. I really hope it won't be anything like a typical MMORPG - if it is done well, this won't be "Vampires in WoW". It's a whole different kind of experience and should be developed as such.

     

    I trust CCP to be intelligent and talented enough to recognize and deliver on that.

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    I hope that this game will truely embrace all the diverse inhabitants of the WoD including the Fae, Mages and other varied and various awakened souls.  Oh and If I choose to be one of the children of the night it shall be as a Toreador that I shall be embraced.  What is eternity without beauty and style?

    At release it's just vampires, reason being they want to get it righ,t so they're concentrating on just the one thing. Were's, Mages, Wraiths etc will be added as the game expands, much the same as EVE has done with the release of tech 2 and 3.

  • RohnRohn Saint Peters, MOPosts: 3,740Member Uncommon

    Thanks for the bits of information.

    Though there are games I enjoy now, and several in development that I'm anxious to try, WoD is by FAR the game I'm most looking forward to.  I really hope they can capture much of the appeal of the original game and bring it to this MMO.

    I'm actually playing that, yet again, at the moment.  Had never played a Tremere through it so that's what I'm doing. 

    To the person saying the world will be full of Gangrel and Brujah - I just have one thing to say.  Malkavian.  =)

     

    Take your time CCP.  Been waiting years, can wait a couple more.
