    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. 

     

      with any luck CCP will have it out in alittle under the next 10 years. Dust still need alot of work and EvE of course is their bread and butter so To them WoD is a dead last something to do when they have nothing better

     

    I highly doubt that.  WoD strikes me as potentially a much bigger bread winner than Eve and CCP is looking to the future or they wouldn't even bother to begin with it.


    Yeah, Werewolves and Vampires in a full-on "terrestrial" experience seems like it would be a more natural fit for many MMO'ers. Especially one built on a well-known and loved series.

     

    Disembodied spaceships in a decidedly less "terrestrial" Sci-FI setting just doesn't seem to grab as many people overall. Just consider the relatively low number of space/sci-fi themed MMOs compared to terrestrial/fantasy ones.

     

    I could see WoD eclipsing Eve in terms of numbers, and much more quickly than Eve built them up, if they do it right.

     

    Of course, assuming they don't hop on the 'dumb it down and put it on rails with floating quest markers and super-fast leveling, to appeal to "everyone"' bandwagon, it'll put it in more of a niche category - which is completely fine.

     

    'Niche' does not, by any means, indicate "not successful" (see: Eve Online and FFXI). It just means it's directed at and caters to a specific portion of MMO players, and not the mythical "everyone" (aka WoW's playerbase) developers/publishers love to chase.

     

    Guaranteed that, assuming CCP doesn't go for the dumbed down "everyone" approach, it won't be long before the "everyone" crowd starts complaining about it and demanding they simplify and dumb it down. Hopefully CCP simply won't listen to those people.

    One of the few times I'm actually intestered in a PVP game (where I might actually take part in PVP because it makes sense for that world) the only other one I can think of where I choose a PVP server was Matrix online.

    As for Sandbox, those are always fun, but this part is what caught my eye: "the areas they control will change to reflect the personality and traits of their rulers." This is something i wish SWTOR had done as they had the morphing tech already (character turned pale and eyes went red if you were dark side), Oh well. I will be keeping an eye out for that to see what that entails.

    I'll put this back on my list of games to look forward to (which is sadly a very short list) which now include: World of Darkness and Dreamfall Chapters.

    I liked EvE online don't get me wrong, I just couldn't get past the avatar is a ship thing, I didn't mind the spreadsheet thing or the PvP.  So hopefully with this being vamps or whatever else they bring up, I won't have any issues in that regard.

    PS. Hello again guys, still actively playing SWTOR but keeping my eye out for new games as always (incase anyone was wondering)

    Help me Bioware, you're my only hope.

    Is ToR going to be good? Dude it's Bioware making a freaking star wars game, all signs point to awesome. -G4tv MMo report.

    Not interested in the least. I thought the pen and paper games were garbage, and the live action crowd were just Wierd. The universe i found boring and overdone.

    maybe they will add a sparkly clan of vampires that sparkle in sunlight.

    Werewolf the Apocalypse or GTFO.

    I would really like to see the werewolves at launch, but as long as they are going to be in there I'll definitely buy this game; though since I want to play as a werewolf I'll have to wait probably :(

    Love ccp- but this?...Leave it to Funcom=TSW rules! nothing else will impress me.

    they should of focused on making a 'walking eve-online'  with all factions=unfortunately PS3 highjacked it.

     

    TSW is great, but it's not social enough for me, hell even gw2 is more social than that game... Its an awesome experience with all the story plot, skill system, clothing system, graphics, dongeons... they nailed everything EXCEPT the social espect! It's basically a single player game with PvP, dungeons and raids. On the other hand while WoD is gonna have PvE elements, it's still a society driven game and for me that's all I want.

    If your reading this CCP do not reinvent the wheel. Imporve upon what you did in eve. 

    Im glad to hear feeding isnt cheesy where you beat up on a npc then hit the feed ability and thats it.

    I really hope they don't put in Werewolves, at least not from the start, everything gets really messy in WoD the more races you add into a game, so I can only imagine the way the game would play out with other races would just be terrible in a videogame. Plus each race makes humans feel less and less like they are the highest population in the game (which they are supposed to be.) 

    Plus Werewolves were kinda shottly done in WoD to begin with, since most of the tribes are just weird or pointless and their are way way too many specialities (now choose what moon you were born under, now choose if you were born as a human wolf or metis, now tribe...) Then they had that whole failed attempt at ranking system and powers that had no connection to original werewolves what so ever (because werewolves randomly deal with spirits in their lore.) 

    They should just make it simple, start off with Cam clans and Caitiff then add in the ability to go Anarch, possibly Independant clans, then in the Expansion add in Sabbot.

    btw... has anyone else noticed that in eve, everything operates on a 5-"dot" system just like WoD?  and that characters advance in eve by spending SP (EXP) by purchasing more "dots" in skills?  and that each "dot" is progressively more expensive than the previous?  And eve came out in '03.... i wonder how long the CCP devs were thinking about WoD?

    Back when I was playing EVE I was playing VtM offline with friends. I noticed this too as well as some nods to VtM in Blood Raider lore. I wondered if CCP were fans of White Wolf. Then they bought White Wolf. Kinda answered my question.

    Really looking forward to this game. And very happy its the people who made EvE are the same ones that are in charge of making this game because I trust them not to put it out till its ready unlock Bioware with SWTOR which should of been held back additional year.

    Much as I like TSW, I've no idea why it got dragged in here: even in its best parts, it's a themepark built around a dev-created story & to do WoD that way would be (a) a waste of the IP and (b) about the last thing I'd expect from CCP.

    Will be interesting to see how the player politics of VtM get translated into an MMO format.

  • PunkrePunkre Chico, CAPosts: 92Member

    I think what most people don't realize is that Vt:M is a social based game at its heart, clans like Toreador, Ventrue are the dominant powers and the most feared, while gangrel and brujah are some of the weakest clans.

    Also TSW is nothing like WoD, not even on a concept point of view. The only people that might get these ideas confused that they are related are dimwitted corperate types that might help finance the game: So they would be told: "its like the politics of EvE, with the asthetics of TSW, with a unique set of social and physical combat."

    Anyone else feel like CCP made a big mistake by focusing on a shooter instead of this?

    By the time World of Darkness releases the market will already be flooded with sandbox MMOs.

    If they had released this in 2013 they would have stayed ahead of the curve.

    Yeah Why on earth they put time into Dust instead of this is a complete mystery and with PS4 non compatible with PS3 where does it leave Dust owners if they upgrade to PS4 in the lurch it seems, it was a bold move but CPP should stick to what they are good at imo.

    Before you all get too excited, it's still up to question if this game will be released at all.

    cloak vampire?  I think mind freeze, mind control would fit better, but it's still good.  They hit the main point.  Vampires should be stealthy and the dark world is perfect for a chill game.  I can't wait for a change from the fantasy DRAGON games.  This game should NOT be flashy.  I do want WS, but this could be such a great change.

    However, I don't see this out for 4 or more years.  CCP doesn't move fast.  /sigh

    I would love to see the Wwolves, vampaneze, blood starved vampires (movie DayBreakers)  and soul possessing demons, but more than that.... let's have a part of the world bathed in light.  The players are playing vamps and such... let the game have an NPC race of humans and angels fighting us.

    Waiting for more info.  With the last batch of MMO releases with great anticipation I have been utterly....  I hope their business model does not let me down.

    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?

    YOu Do know that CCP effectively owns White Wolf now right?

    space really does crease when you fold it

    I love CCP, they are bad ass. I am sure they will do justice to this game. If only it did not take them this long.

    Last they said, they were starting with VtM and vanilla humans. Others would be added later.

    Funny cus I coudl have sworn I heard they were gonna have werewolves as well.  I do hope so as I only wish to play a werewolf.

    I dont like leeches, I dont play a leech, and I cant stand them.  Shadow Lord all the way.

    So much crap, so little quality.

    Sure, just stake Vampires and use unicorn blood in transfusions to turn Vampires in Humans again... It will be fun to see how long you last in WoD.

    Better learn about its lore.
