    Not at all a fan of the steampunkish design... it's like a game that doesn't know what era it wants to be set in... Black Gold suffers from the same affliction.

     

    But, that aside... I didn't see anything in the game that really isn't in all the others.  I figure they will make a mint off of players wanting to keep their castles untouched by invaders... assuming players hang around in game that long.  Don't really see much pulling me in.  If it's F2P I'll try it... got nothing to lose.  If B2P or sub-based, certainly will pass.

    Looks promising for me.  I'm rather interested in the crafting and housing since it has been so long since I've dabbled in that with an MMO in the last few years.

     

    I'm not a great fan of mixing art style era's either but I guess you need to overlook a few things.  Not everything is going to be perfect and I can give up some of that so long as the combat system is good and there are other things to do when you just don't feel like PvP'ing.

    2 things:

     

    i have run across contradicting information concerning OWPVP and whether it is game wide or if there are a continent or two that do not have PvP.

     

    secondly, does anyone have any links or info on farming?

    You CAN pk in the pve continents after starter area, BUT there's a heavy penalty for it, not to mention the whole jailtime stuff. Anyone with notoriety will also be instantly hunted by patrol guards and free to be killed by any player at all. The whole jail system is being finetuned and by the time the game releases in the west, we will most likely have far longer maximum jailtime possible.

    Let's not forget that after gaining certain part of notoriety you auto-join the Pirate/Criminal faction, making most of npcs hostile to you(except for the pirate territories ones). 

    PK and PVP in the sea is free for all, since, well, that's the point of the oceans. fight for traderoutes and resources, not to mention kraken spawns(and the undersea features that are coming like farms and stuff)

    PK and PVP in the third continent is restricted by the territory owner's decisions.

    You have safe zones up to lvl 30, harbours have safe zones and housing areas on the western and eastern continent have safe zones. Everywhere else is open world pvp.


    Here is a link to farming :

    Only players of your own faction can be put on trial and put into jail for ganking. Enemy guilds, or factions can pvp without any consequences.

    Ah I stand corrected. Still a good method in that sense though.

    The combat is IMO a lot better than what it looks like in videos, but you have to play it to understand.

    For example one thing is that a single attack skill may have multi-chain attacks, for example a low level warrior has a 3-chain attack all done with a single button, you can hit button once for first attack in the chain or 2 for the first 2 attacks etc..

    What is really cool is that you can simply hold the button down to execute the. entire chain, which reduces button mashing.

    If I get it correctly, pirates have their own island, right? Can they build houses / castles there?

    Yes you can build a house on the pirate island. Castles require a lot of land and are reserved for northern territory. XL might be adding more pirate islands, so who knows?

    Then lets hope to god that its B2P or P2P. I would love to pay a sub just so people like you stay far far away from this title.

    Yeah but in the process of going from F2P to B2P/P2P you'd lose nice sociopaths like me ^^ -cold sadistic smile-

    To be honest, I am now quite tempted to be a pirate. I can imagine that the game gets a little tougher and more complicated, but it could also bring a lot of fun :)

    I think it is not that far from being a PK in L2. However, in this game, pirates have their own land where they can build their houses. Also the fight for resources makes the whole concept richer. Besides killing players, you can also steal their goods and utilize them for your own purpose.

    Definitely tempting.

    Her voice is fine. Some of you are so nit picky. Seriously. Graphics have a mismatched look to them as if the scale is off. Video also looks more sparse than videos I've seen on youtube (specifically dungeons).

    With that said this looks like a game changer. I havent played it but it is the first game to evoke that EQ feeling of wonderment, exploration, and risk.

    I hate open world PvP. But this is interesting to me becausw there are no set rules.

    To the themeparkers, myself included, lets talk through a scenario I often here. Lets say a huge guild does take over the pvp main island. If you dont like it, its up to you to round up other players and take the guild head on. Or be stealth and steal resources being brought into the island. Or form a gang of your friends to negotiate a deal with them. Or sell out and join them... if they will have you.

    notice the stark difference between developers giving you hard content to burn through vs giving you a world where your options are only limited to the systems provided.

    You want to succeed? You want to progress? Then you have to deal with the other players. And trust me though it comes across as forced it has the benefit of the game never ending... just a constant state of change you get to interact with. Who wouldnt want that? (Rhetorical).

    Hope this game delivers half of what it says. Looks promising and missing in todays sea of me-too resteicted MMOs

    People complain for years on these boards because of the lack of quality AAA sandbox games and how gameplay is always the most important quality by far.  And suddenly, when one is presented, they complain that the graphic "style" isn't to their liking so they write off the game (asian themed or not, graphics look sharp).

     

    Tons of great features / concepts in this game from the sieges, player housing and ships.

    Bingo, we have a winner...  Oh so true mate.

    I'm loving the world, crafting and housing.  I can overlook the combat for a deep world and not being a huge PvP fan, I can dip my toe in that aspect of the game on my terms.  It may turn me into a huge fan however.  I will have to wait and see.

    Fingers crossed for beta-cake !!

    Sadly i said it long ago that i had hoped the pvp would not ruin the game and it does.This is such a grand game too,it does so much and offers so much.

    I don't want to be forced to get a bunch of people to build my ship and i want to be able to sail it anywhere as well as walk or go anywhere without always worrying about pvp.

    The two options are just a lol,you have to have the MOST money or the biggest guild to be able to enjoy the pvp zones.This is such a bad idea it is a game breaker for myself.

    How do they expect anyone to have players always there to guard the castle,i want to play the game and take breaks when 

    I FEEL LIKE".That is why i shrugged when she opened up with that PR line about doing " what you want to do",that is an outright lie.I want a castle and i want to ride and build my ship anywhere,i want to access all the content without pvp and this game does not allow that.

    I waited so long for this game too,imo it will be a 9/10 but pvp makes it a 4/10 for me,very frustrating.
