  • Chronciles of Elyria - Not Pay to Win

    I wont go into all of your post but will just say much of what you state as fact is HIGHLY subjective and therefore only opinions and not facts.  I would even say your first post is misleading.  Just take this sentence:

    As far as most of the community are concerned, Chronicles of Elyria is NOT pay to win.

    ....snip.....
    Do you claim to speak for all the community? That would indeed be misleading and only an opinion.

    Which community do you speak of?  I would assume you mean this one right here at mmorpg since this is the forum you're posting in and the community you're "speaking to".  Again very misleading if you mean something else.

    P2w.....this has been a highly debated subject in these forums here at mmorpg numerous times and the only consensus we have is that it is highly subjective and the community can't really agree on what constitutes p2w. 

    Do you claim to have single-handedly proven what p2w is and defined it in a way that everyone agrees with?

    Somehow I rather doubt it so again highly misleading on your part IMHO.


  • Developer has no objection to allowing high donating players have GM accounts. Not P2W... LOL

     Now that's some scary p2w right there......this game keeps looking worse and worse.
  • Developer has no objection to allowing high donating players have GM accounts. Not P2W... LOL

    My god just looked at that thread and the people there.......delusional.  This game screams stay away right now lmao!

    Hope to god those that put money in this that haven't drunk the cool aid get refunds pronto!

    Who woulda thought it...Star Citizen has been one upped!


  • Alright, Caspian, let's dance

    The person I responded to stated that he doubted Caspien ever made such statements so I provided them.  Don't ask questions to which you don't want answers.

    No, I said he most likely made the post in response to a small malicious minority, whose comments you conveniently choose to ignore. Clearly you think context is overrated.
    When this game first came to light, right here on these very forums, some of us showed interest in the game but had some question and a few reservations about it. 

    Instead of talking to us normally Caspian showed himself to be very sensitive about such questions and frankly came across like a snarky, angry kid and totally put some of us off even wanting to back this game even though we thought it had some very interesting ideas.

    In the end he is showing himself to be his own worse enemy, and trying to make it appear he is a poor victim of trolls and haters is a sad sad defense for his behavior both here and elsewhere.

  • Why are you NOT playing Elite: Dangerous?

    Asm0deus said:
    Shallow gameplay, high amounts of grind and RNG, the whole season 2 was badly received as can be seen by numerous threads about it in their forums enough so they are dumping the season pass format and last but not least FD has Braben Vision which means they nerf the hell out of anything that is remotely fun and not a grind.

    Sadly the "mile wide, inch deep" saying still holds true.


    I can't say about the other stuff. I find the gameplay fine, but I like euro truck simulator a lot which is how I play ELITE...but in space. And no monthly fee which is great, just buy to play.

    However. Forums aren't much to go by in MMOs. WoW is doing great and still the most subbed MMO, but if you went to the official WoW forums you'd think it was a disaster and that it has no players and everyone hates the game. Ever gone to the WoW forums? Every single person unhappy with the game goes there to complain and rant away...but...the game is VERY healthy and still played by millions.

    Most people love the features of Legion. Most people loved WoD. But go the official WoW forums, and you get a totally different than how people INSIDE the game feel.

    However this thread IS to see why others aren't playing ELITE. Right now last I looked, over 6k people (almost 7k) were on ELITE according to steam charts. That isn't really that much, but for a niche MMO its not too bad.

    But a lot of people ask for a unique MMO that isn't WoW and no cash shop, no pay to win and many things ELITE has on MMORPG.com.

    I guess people do complain a lot about the grind (they complain about it in Black Desert Online too)...but every MMO has grind. In EVE, you grind ISK. In WoW you grind levels and then grind dungeons/raids/mythics non-stop like a rat in the maze loot system to get a tiny bit better item. In Ultima Online you grinded skills. In Everquest it was an even worse grind. In GW2 there is a grind to unlock abilities and special expansion features, and the grind of doing events over and over. Is there an MMO with 0 grind at all?

    I don't get the complaint of grind in an MMO, when every single MMO has intense grinding of some kind or another. Even Planetside 2 has a grind to unlock new weapons and gadgets. 

    In any case, good to see why people may not like Elite Dangerous and skip it by. It does meet a lot of what people ask for here though, unless its really just a small group of players that post over and over and most would actually rather play WoW style games (that kind of MMO always seems super popular despite what MMORPG.com (at least some) users say lol)
    I am a backer that has free access to The founders Jameson station I am not going on just the forums but my overall experience from betas to now.  The updates have been shallow and shiity so much so even some of the better known "white knights" have been grumbling and sayin they wont be handing FD their money ahead of time again.


    I like the flight model and how the ship fly, I like how this a great game to play with a HMD or in a homemade cockpit or triple screen setup and how awesome head tracking is etc etc

    But unless you like space trucking and seeing your creds go up there not much to do as that's really the only endgame there is, I mean even pvp is not great cause many of us don't even play in open to avoid it so...

    I am not saying not to play it, only you need to moderate your expectations cause it is far far from having decent story or gameplay like a single player space games.

    At this point I think NMS has more "gameplay" than ED in its actual state.

    This is how I know you just want to argue. I literally showed you where the guy says he wants to add item x and item a and you still say its hogwash.. why? Because its not happening in the time-frame you want it to?

    I never said its happening right away. Stop creating that narrative. I never said all this is coming soon..  I said its happening, its in the works.. and its based on his word. I trust his word over yours when it comes to development of the game sorry.
    Practice what you preach otherwise your armor gets dull real quick. 
    That is all.


    Anyways to get back on track:

    Frontier Expo 2017

    https://www.reddit.com/live/zpss9yz5ok3c


    An even better practice I'm into is not lying and making up shit to fit a narrative. You should try it.

    Also the topic is not Frontier Expo 2017.
    Really here's you caught in a lie,

    lol I like how you are putting all the ED players in 2 boxes.. either "They can do no wrong, best space game EVA" or "Pretty lame additions not well done."

    I'm neither of those.. i'm more a "I want them to add all these things to improve it, but I can wait patiently because I'm patient and want a high quality product" type of person. 
    ..snip..
    This is a lie cause I never said there was two camp only, I made a comment about those two camps because they are the two polar extremes which is pretty clear to see if you read or quote ALL the relevant stuff in that same post.

    Look at the same post again,

    Asm0deus said:
    ...snip...

    Basically there are some people than think FD can do no wrong and have built the bestest most amazing space game EVA and some that think what has been added is pretty lame and not well done.

    It's up to everyone here to decide which camp they are in or hopefully like myself are not in either and think ED has lots of possibilities ...snip...

    Oh look you have been caught lying by omission!

    Oh and the expo is relevant because it will give us real information on what to expect in the "near future" of ED which is quite relevant to this thread.

    People can go read the thread I am not interested in recreating it here,  Like I said in another post NMS has more to do right now that FD, it just doesn't look as good graphic wise and the flight combat is not as good.

    Basically there are some people than think FD can do no wrong and have built the bestest most amazing space game EVA and some that think what has been added is pretty lame and not well done.

    It's up to everyone here to decide which camp they are in or hopefully like myself are not in either and think ED has lots of possibilities but that FD need to get a clue and  actually use the money people give them on the game rather than on their "other games" and then give us poorly implemented and half arsed content.

    It's pretty clear you don't agree with me and that's okay.

    EDIT: How do you know for sure they aren't using the money they made (not gave to them, they sold a product) on ED? Where did you get this info from or are you just taking a guess? If so what is your guess based on? 
    Go look on their forums it's in one of the threads I forget which one, one of the members posted some tidbits that Braben told his investors in one of their shareholder / street filings or somesuch, as for the other thing I said there are those two camps and then other like me that are hopefully somewhere in the middle, I do not believe you're in that middle area.

    You are far far too keen on giving them a pass to be "somewhere in the middle".
