    @Gymrat313 sorry my friend.  This is the game that I love and I will defend it to the core.  I think people will see the passion of the people who love this game and want to be part of a community that cares about the game.

    I am defending it the way I am because declarative statements like that from @Scorchien have the risk of influencing people with false information.

    So I will not stop promoting or defending this game just because you think I have a polarizing personality.  In fact, if you knew me and followed my stream, you would find that I am anything but polarizing.

    My campaign to #MakeAlbionGreatAgain shall continue.
    Now time to fail again ... Show me what false information I posted ... ...

      Exactly right , so the only False Information here is you , saying i have posted false information

    After carefully reading this thread, my decision is to wait and see. I will not play now.

    @itsover Why wait when you can learn about this wonderful game of Albion right now!  Most people who play now will have a supreme advantage over others who do not play until the game releases.  If you want to get the edge, then you should play the game now.  #MakeAlbionGreatAgain #MAGA
    This is the best part. It shows you know truly nothing about the game and its :progress: throughout the alphas. Playing any ONE test yeilds you nothing since the game has been bascially remade for each iteration. The map changes, the economy changes, the recipes change, the land system changes, the feasibility of weapons and PVE changes, the requirements for holding land changes, the PVP flagging system changes, the reputation system changes. The ONLY thing that doesnt change is that every iteration is a giant fucking boring grind of killing the same shit over and over again. Sure, its fun for a week because you have to pvp for your spawns. Three weeks into every iteration the spawns are full bc there is no one left. All you do is get to t5 in different builds to test shit for the next 3 months until they inevtiably wipe and re-make( fuck up ) the game.  People race to get their buildings to t6 only to find out T7 mats arent even spawning. Team takes literally 5 weeks to fix the issue. By the time they fix it, 90% of players are gone. This has happened in EVERY ITERATION. If you want proof, go to the forums and oyull find posts of peak queensmarket/ Kingsmarket HUB populations. Youll find nothing but posts complaining that they do "pvp" roams in black areas for 3 hours and not find a single person. 

    LoL.. "get the edge"... you are a pathetic joke. 100% irrelevant in an irrelevant game.

    @Scorchien you are right it is not UO.  Its a whole different game naturally and no game will likely completely capture all of the elements of the glory days of UO.  But to say the game is rubbish in my opinion denotes a bit of troll in you that I can't take seriously.  You can have your own opinions but don't ruin the experience for the rest of the potential players who want to give the game a shot and suddenly read your comment of extreme negativity.  Grow up bro.  If it is not your cup of tea, so be it.  
    Damn bro.. you must really think highly of Scorchien if you think his words actually matter that much to potential players.

    @Phry so are you one who enjoys themepark MMORPG's then?  The site of a yellow quest marker makes me want to shoot myself.  From a sandbox MMORPG perspective, there is no greater game out on the market today that captures that genre as excellent as Albion Online.

    Yea.. thats a nice big F U to EVE, arguably the best sandbox, if not MMO of all time. Once again, shows how utterly incompetent your two brain cells are at producing something of value.

    @Frammshamm if you think that playing a game during its beta's does nothing for the knowledge of a player, even if the game changes some elements of it, then you are either trolling (which you are) or you are ignorant of the intricacies of Albion Online.  There are elements of the game that will never change like the core mechanics and knowing those ahead of time gives people great knowledge about how they will intend to play the game when it releases.

    Also, regarding your comments that appear to be negative on how they are changing the game from alpha to beta 1 to beta 2.  I would rather see a company take the feedback it is receiving from a community and make massive changes BEFORE a game releases than see a company make drastic changes AFTER the game has released.

    Albion has the luxury of a supportive community of over 200,000 people who have purchased the game.  This means they are financially sound and are able to make the necessary adjustments, test the waters like what is suppose to be done in betas, and then make the final PRE-RELEASE version of the game as good as it can be.

    As much as many of the players in the Albion Community want this game to be released now and there is certainly some people waiting till release (WHO HAVE PLAYED IN BETA), ultimately I would rather Albion release a polished game than rush to the table.

    So whatever you say about the game in my opinion is ignoring the fact that this development team is probably the most thoughtful dev team in terms of listening to their community.  They make changes (maybe not at the speed you like) but it is better than a dev team that doesn't talk to their community at all.

    Give the game a chance guys.  All I am saying.  Ignore the trolls which seek to influence your mind before you can form your own opinion of a game by playing it.

    Dudes leave this guy alone. He's mentally ill. 
    He influenced me to not play the game.
    One person dictates whether you play a game or not? Hmm, interesting.
    Anyways, the game is very well done for what it is. Will it appeal to the masses? No. Yet the open world territory control gameplay is exciting and fun with very fun farming, crafting and a big degree of skills and things to learn and do. You can be a trader, a PvE dungeon runner, relic hunter, farmer, cook, Animal breeder,do guild versus guild, alliance versus alliance and just do whatever you want. Fun stuff.
    The game is updated regularly and additions are made all the time based on feedback from the community.
    That is more than we can say for most games coming out ;)

    The time one spends playing the Albion Online beta learning about the game to get an advantage for final release is time they could have spent playing the beta of a better game.  Or released version of a better game.  Or heck, get outside and play some basketball and get some exercise or something.

    At any rate, time isn't free so playing a beta to learn how to get an advantage in a game one might not even like instead of just asking others for opinions about it first before plunking down hard-earned cash to even try it can be a prudent decision.
  • SmoeySmoey Member UncommonPosts: 595

    @Smoey unfortunately not trying it now and waiting till a later date is robbing people of the learning experience they can have and the fun they can have now. Even in beta, Albion is the best sandbox MMORPG available.  I cannot stress the sandbox element enough here.  If you are looking for a themepark game, Albion is not for you.  But from a sandbox perspective, there is none better.  I think you just don't like Sandbox games brother.

    It isn't hard to learn at all, it's fairly basic. You state there isn't anything else that compares to it sandbox wise and that just goes to show how dire the sandbox industry is right now, it doesn't mean Albion is good.

    There is no point in buying into this beta, watch some videos and wait until the release. This feels very much similar to Dark Fall online during development, everything was everywhere and there was no substance. 

    There is also groundbreaking changes (including arenas) that are still being added/considered which is as far away from the sandbox element you're focussing on. Wait for the end product before parting with your cash.

    I am the type of player who enjoys playing games like Eve Online, SW:TOR, a little BDO now and then, and recently tried ArcheAge, though i started on the Morpheus server which seems a bit quiet, so perhaps not the best one to start on, and also games such as Planetside 2, FFXIV:ARR.

    ps. the term you were looking for is 'the sight of a yellow quest marker makes me want to shoot myself' rather than 'site' which is in effect just its location.
    Nothing wrong with that per se, as i enjoy playing both sandbox games and themeparks, i just don't agree with your statement that Albion in any way 'captures' a particular genre all that well, after all UO is still there and doing fine by all accounts, as is RunEscape. :o
  • kitaradkitarad Member EpicPosts: 5,225
    I would not play this game so I cannot say I was turned away from it but the thread was definitely an interesting read and dude FYI you are not helping promote this game. 

  • BlackboaBlackboa Member UncommonPosts: 119
    @Tiamat64 if there was a better game out there that is released or is currently in beta that I haven't tried, I would be certainly playing that instead but for my tastes, Albion takes the cake.  To each their own I suppose.

    @Smoey for you there may be no point in buying into this beta, but not for everyone else who wants to enjoy an amazing Sandbox MMORPG that is Albion Online, there is certainly a reason to play.

    For those who do actually want to learn more, I have started my first of two lives streams of the day and I would be happy to answer any of your questions about Albion in real time.  The stream address is  See you there!

    Well its an interesting way of dealing with people whose opinions are contrary to their own, though i am not sure using the 'rentamob' tactic is a particularly winning strategy, trying to recruit people from outside of this forum to help defend his opinions doesn't say much for his ability to counter said opinions with rational arguments either.  O.o
  • SpiiderSpiider Member RarePosts: 772
    Honest opinion? Fine for few days then boring as hell. And this is when cartoony graphics and Asian style grind become too much for me. I tried playing it few times. But I have to say I haven't played much in an alliance controlling pvp space. Could be like EVE maybe? Why don't you try, its super cheap anyway.

    No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

    I think it's important for the MMORPG.com crowd to know what bullshit you're up to.

    BTW, AO forums are public, genius.

    Many or most of us here are the Albion community. We've bought in.

    So you know, it's generally frowned on bringing in drama from the outside to stir up trouble here. It is not a cool thing to do. I don't agree with the negative comments, but most at least have a reason and that's fair.
