Been what, two weeks since anyones posted in this forum? Apathy, the silent killer. Anyway, since Alganon is adding PvP I'm making a discussion thread because someone has to.
Too little too late in my opinion.
Since when is Tuesday a direction?
I kind of dig Alganon as a quirky little game, but I am not sure about the point of PvP... Doesn't that require enough population to have people who also want to fight? I am more of a PvE person myself, so maybe I am underestimating how badly everyone else playing wanted to fight each other.
Had to reformat the HD and do a clean Windows install on my machine a few weeks ago and just couldn't muster up enough enthusiasm for reinstalling Alganon. So, I didn't do the Halloween event (which was only available to players who bought an item in the Tribute Market ) and haven't experienced the new PvP system.
As for the PvP system itself, I have some misgivings:
PvP in a PvE game that has no end game is a bad investment. Of course, without the population to bother creating 10-20 man raids for why are they creating PvP for people? Add in the fact that the game has 2 races and 4 classes and PvP is going to get real boring real fast. Just my humble opinion.
Of course, this could be a gamble to increase the population. By adding PvP, they are probably hoping that it will attract more players. But I stand by my "too little too late" opinion.
I've been too busy getting back into WoW and occasionally playing LOTRO to check out Alganon.
I can't really criticize them for adding rudimentary PVP to the game, as it's far from the worst use of their resources. But it doesn't sound like it has made a dent in their population issues. At this point I don't have any idea of how they can salvage the game, but it sounds like their hopes are pinned on European servers. They might be trying to sell their IP and thus shutting down the game would hurt those chances.
any game with massive i win buttons in their in game store and pvp will attract a very specific clientel, e peeners with stolen credit cards
Is alganon still getting like less than 10 player playing at the same time?
If so, pvp is moot. Who are you going to kill? Derek Smart?
