Originally posted by Jean-Luc_Picard Originally posted by Braindome Sorry, but alot of you that think this game might detour the younger players couldn't be more wrong. The thing that attracts younger players is F2P with a cash shop and when the kiddies get allowance from mom and dad they hit it up, it is a great formula cause it works and this game is set to attract that kind of gamer. It's good for making money and though there is nothing wrong with making money...lol, alot of times integrity is compromised and especially since kids in general don't understand the value of their money. I think this game has some really good ideas and hopefully Garriott is keeping the old school core gamer at heart, but if you think it will be youngster proof then you are wrong.
Really? How many parents are going to help their kid(s) spending $500 just to get a virtual home in a video game? I, for sure, would tell my own to go back to their duties and homework, and think about real future instead of virtual property.
The kids will be there but not buying houses or anything expensive, but they will be there. They will be into the "Lord of The Flies" PvP and RPing as far as they understand it (college RP, and "Family" RP ie, playing big kids at the university and house). Now with the play-style slider thingie, you'll be able to tune most of them out mostly, but they'll still be there somewhere...
It might be interesting to adjust your slider to check on them occasionally just to see what's going on...It's like the Uncanny Valley version of the "real" game.
*How do I know? I've played a lot of games...lol
Say something nice?
Hopefully it will make enough money to launch Richard Garriott back into space.
That's all I got.
It's realistic. Meaning that the people willing to lay down real cash will own all of the property.
It's also chock full of delicious nostalgia. MMMmmmm. Just taste that clunky inventory with the tangy kick of dated graphics.

Going to agree with Kano, I like the name.

I hope this game dies quickly, without much pain. Thats about as nice as I can grant it.
After watching this video I couldnt help but feel bad for all who pledged

I play it, and it actually looks quite good for a pre-alpha release. The conversation system is awesome too, as well as the house decoration system.

Let us prove to the rest of the online community that MMORPG are not just a group of haters and find something nice to say for once. Today, I shall compliment the combat system concept. At first, I thought this would be terrible, but slowly over time as I get more information it becomes much more interesting to me. Even the fact that I am an evil foaming at the mouth PK, this system still does have its appeal, and I can't wait to test it out in Alpha.
I'm sure there are folks looking for a return to core principles that made old school games tedious and boring.
I am not one of them.
Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!
Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

I will say something nice about SotA when they give me a good enough reason to say something nice about SotA. Until then I will at least not say anything else negative. I've already expressed my opinion on how these guys are handling their Kickstarter with regards to key game play elements.
Originally posted by Bilgato I think the age grouping is something that will make a huge difference. How many games do you find that you might like but the average age of the players is 12 to 16 or 16 to 21? I'm 45, I have nothing against younger players but also have nothing in common with them either, and I'm sure most of them don't have much in common with a guy their dad's age. There are a lot of decent younger players but in general I get on better with the "over 30" crowd.
Yes, if they can match make me with people who are my age and even deeper with different things here and there that would be great. I've been looking forward to testing out their Magic Match Maker(tm)!

As I had been saying from the start, and Chris also, Full Loot would be trialed to see how it would go and would ONLY be for those who wanted to get into it. It is not to subject people who don't want to PvP and people who don't want full loot PvP both, hardcore players can choose to play how they wish.
That is a very good thing!
