Tell me it's not so....

Could this become a serious challenger to EVE online? As I scanned the ss I was pleasently surprised to see another decently looking space based game. I was disappointed to see it is p2p instead of a micro system. ( f2p ) This may be a game to test play for those that are bored with the f2p grinds.

    It's really more of a direct competitor to Jumpgate (classic) than EVE.  Also, in my opinion it would be horrible if it were based on microtransactions.  The game is about doing stuff, not using little booster potions to get fairy dust xp bonuses.  Plus, since there are only 4 devs on the team I think it is fairly reasonable to pay the $10/month to play.  I've observed and played the game off and on for several years, and recommend everybody at least give it a shot.

    I decided to try it and all i can say is that it kicks ass and could teach somethings to other MMORPG's out there.

     

    It may not have the graphics of EVE but in terms of content, replayability and community it is one of the best space-sims around right now.

     

    You should try it!

    I can only second this. I've been playing for a week now, on the 1 month free trial key, and I'm pleasantly surprised.

    Care to be more specific? This is exactly contrary to my experiences.

    I like this game it has good content, the PVP is awesome, at the time I was playing in 06 the only gripe was not enough systems. I may try coming back to it shortly. I did play EVE for a year and got bored with it, but the community there is ok, just I don't care for games that are basically controlled by a few players. I do see a guild on here that I don't really care for, if they are the same ones that play EVE, as they are one of the controlling factors on EVE and live up to there names.

    I dont think there are any guilds in VO that are ones from EVE. Some guilds have similar names as ones in EVE but still are not inter-related at all.

    The current main guilds in vo are:

    CLM, ONE, ITAN, TGFT, PA, ORE, THC, (k)', EMS, THC

    in no particular order

    You did not even give the game a chance Mr. Syder.    Go back to your JGE forums.

    So i am going to play either VO or Jumpgate.  Which should i pick?  I have read both forums and still dont know.  I dont have time to try them both.  I know there are max around 50 players online for VO, how many for Jumpgate?  I liked combat games like Tie fighter, but i also liked Earth and Beyond.  I like to sometimes collect resources/trade as  break from combat.

     

    Also, does VO use a joystick?

    Thanks.

    trex it can use a JS but most ppl prefer the mouse and keyboard method.

    Between Vendetta Online and Jumpgate Classic, Vendetta is definitely the better of the two in my opinion.  The game is actually quite nice, I enjoyed the game using a joystick and the community while small was friendly to say the least.  Though while I enjoyed the game, I had issues with the movement and how it affected PVP.

    You can go in reverse, strafe and do other movements that sort of fell in line with general ground FPS games.  It was awkward because I wasn't expecting someone to just reverse and strafe around my ship like I would expect in other games.  It took a sense of realism away from the game, or it just didn't feel "right" to me the way it worked.  Otherwise I enjoyed VO and would have continued to play if it wasn't for this.

    Otherwise I'm holding out for JGE in hopes that it feeds the need I have for a more interactive space game.

    It is a good game and will only get better with time.  The Dev(s) has a to do list and even though a game is never 'finished', once they get further down the line this should be a serious under dog challenger to other space games.

    It's real big point is the multi-platform support for playing.  It's not just Windows etc... based and that opens it up to alot of players that would normally be left out.

    My son and I did the 1 month free trials and enjoyed it (him more so) but we come back to that 'finished' comment.  As it's not totally there yet (econ, lack of missions things like that) it's the type of game you come back to and check up on every so often to see if it's 'ready' yet.  We let our accounts lapse but will be diffinitly be keeping an eye on it.

    It's callesd "physics" mode and it is actually very much like how things would work in a weightless vacuum. (like space)  Physics mode can be strange at first, but I found it easy enough to adjust to.

    I did the free month  myself and I really enjoyed the game. I'm no expert at it. Never had a pvp encounter, but then at my level I wouldn't have been  much of a challenge for those who do it every day and have access to the best ships and weapons.

    My only gripe (and for most it probably wouldnt matter) is the almost nightly chat drama. I could probably leave the channel and not hear (see) it, but then, I dont play MMOs so I can play alone. And the vast majority of the folks there are very nice and extremely helpful even when you have a "dumb noob" question.

    I truely feel the game has great potential, and i recomend it to anyone who who wants to play a game where skill really matters. I will keep an eye on it myself to see what the DEVs come up with, and hopefully come back to it. Hell, if I wasn't out of work I'd probably spend the $10 per month and hang around. Mebbe even go into the pirate killin business...
