    Hey, gamers are a group who will buy shit any time, any day. Just put some glorified words like "indie", "reimagination of cult classic", "open world pvp with full loot", "mmo from asia", "survival expirince", "kickstarter", "early access" and they will choke on your shit. And would still want more, after bitching they dont like the smell.

    Steam definitely needs more curation, for the Repop to be on sale there is a bit disturbing, someone gullible might actually buy it thinking its a working game etc.

    If they didn't read the prominently displayed Early Access disclaimers, that could happen, yes !

    Just like it could happen with ANY Early Access game on Steam...

    Repopulation was on sale in 2015 as an Early Access title. It went into cold storage for a year, and is once again on sale as an Early Access game (with a new dev team backed by Idea Fabrik, the makers of the Hero Engine).

    The fact that the hero engine people have been involved makes me even less optimistic about it. What a steaming pile of crap that engine is.

    It's actually a working game! And we had a bunch of people come over on Discord and the forums asking for when they can buy it.

    So I trust people can look everything up and make an informed decision about buying it in the current state of things or not. There's nothing hidden or sneaky there.

    What makes you say it's a bad engine? I mean, you've seen Repop showing poor performances and server unstability, ok. What else do you know about the engine, as opposed to the game?

    With a grand total peek players on Steam of 112.

    Oh well I guess I'll try it out again... but don't expect it to be around long when some MUDs have more players than that.

    They shutdown and wiped  the west coast server right before they put the game in limbo but the announcement with the transfer your chars the server closing was buried in the forums instead of being put on the steam game page so I lost everything and have to start over. Bass turds.

    Well......... I paid $150 in 2012 as a backer. The beta was supposed to start later that year. It didn't. All their promises for further beta starts came to nothing and I gave up even following the game several years ago now. Then I saw the announcement that the new owners were relaunching and thought I'd give it one more try. I installed the Hero Engine client with the Repop build a couple of weeks ago... and nothing. All I got was a system message that the server was sleeping. I discovered you could wake it but that did nothing either. Finally, I decided the repop was always going to be a lost cause and uninstalled everything last week.

    I don't think I'll waste my time on it again and wouldn't recommend anyone else to.

    So it's the same as it was when it shut down. The inventory is so bad, if you are going to make crafting with multiple recipes requiring multiple ingredients, for fucks sake make all the items stack and give people lots of inventory space.

    My characters were still there but the game needs at least a year or more of work on it. What a waste of time with the Fracture thing. So useless. I'm betting this will just be closed and shutdown again.

    Not going to invest any time into it until it gets out of early access or more likely if it gets out of early access.

    This game was dead for me when they decided to allow both tab/target and aim to shoot.  They adavertised it as aim to shoot...but then allowed the tab/target .  Once you allow tab target, you lose aim to shoot as tab / target will always have an advantage.

    That's true. Although some people might prefer to aim at the enemies with a mouse even if it is easier to use tab target. Also the hitboxes could be incredibly large to accommodate for that.

    what is the attraction of the games ruleset that pvp would be a central focus for someone?

    I ask because I dont know the game well but my impression is that its not really pvp focused

    Well I dont know what the focus is now from the new company who made it sit unplayable for over a year but the original company had plans for pvp.

    no I am not asking 'does the game have pvp' but rather what about it would be a central focus for a player of which some aspect of specifically pvp would become a deal breaker for them.

    not saying your view and reasoning is bad I am just saying what you said and your reason for not being intrested seems to suggest the game is heavily (instead of light) focused on pvp.

    does that make my question more clear or still confusing?

    I never said I wasn't interested in the game regardless of what kind of pvp it had else I wouldn't have paid $35 for it back in 2014. I was just saying I believe the original devs had plans for faction war type of pvp so I see why SirBalin would be disappointed with have both tab targeting and free aim targeting.

    Aim to shoot does have advantage in TR because it enables limb targeting--doing headshots would do more damage for example, which can't be done in tab targeting. 
    Have you ever noticed that their stuff is shit and your shit is stuff?
