    The great wide sea is easier to render. Also improvements to the Unreal engine are in place already. I'm sure it will be full of bugs but the performance should be better then ark.
    Yeah but going by the trailers that great wide sea is going to have stuff in it that you can go deeper into and explore so its not just "empty" water areas.

    If you go by the trailers this is the perfect game for everyone as it has everything.  We shall see on the 19th what really shakes out.  When it does not end up like the trailer then we can have the company come out and say....well folks it is early access.

    Why not try it and see if you like it?

    If not, Refund it.

    After all..It will be on Steam unlike that crap called Fallout 76.

    And even if they were, what happens if my ship's sailmaster or first mate has to go after a two hours long voyage at the sea?
    Well, we know for certain that you can hire NPC crew members to fill in.  Of course, that leaves the question of, "How useful are they?"

    Plus, can they spawn right on your ship? Or, are you going to be sailing handicapped until you hit port to hire them?

    Puzzle Pirates had an automated replacement system that worked well.  Once you got below a certain number of player crew, it automatically spawned NPCs to man stations/fight, etc..
    Hopefully, the Atlas devs are smart enough to do something like that, at the very least.

    Will they have some type of teleport-to-ship system for bringing in players when you are far out?  These are some pretty important questions for a game like this.
    Exactly. And if an NPC crew is equally capable for its job as a player crew would be, do you really need other players at all to play this game? Wouldn't it be more "convenient" (had to use this word, apologies for that) to solo all the way and rely on AI crew all along?

    I hope there will be some kind of offline mode where AI takes control of a player character when (s)he's not logged in but i don't want to see any teleports or other immersion breaking systems.

    it be will be very nice to see Old school mmorpg players and people from this forums to  play the new game Atlas so how many of them here going to play? 

    + it is really funny to see that  casuals and  survival games players to semi hardcore to  hardcore mmo players all are both going to play on same boat i dont know how this will be  
    but sure one of the group will  surely quit after month or 2 after release either causals or hardcore deponds on the game  if it  more of survival game like rust where we can build huge castle in 20 secs and get progress to highest with  2 weeks then mmo players will quit

    if it is really deep mmo then  causals and other who only play  survival games will quit 
    so what do you think? hope it will be more of mmo and hardcore gameplay 
    It's not necessarily exclusive to want both. To want survival gameplay and progression. The issue it's an even smaller audience.

    Something like this maybe:
    1000 - survival gameplay
    100 - both
    1000 - deep progression

    If you make for both you're drastically cutting your audience size.

    I've no doubt many will do that and honestly that would be the 'safest' way to try the game. Personally i'll wait until its out of beta and has some solid reviews to back up any purchase decisions.  ;)

    Games should have a short trial demo. I think it would contribute to fewer refund shenanigans.

    Unless it's an absolute mess I'm sure I'll wind up buying it. Currently playing LOTRO Legendary and waiting for WoW Classic. I've got plenty to tide me over while I wait and watch this bake in Early Access for a while.

    Great point,  pirates are normally "the bad guys" and  I have never related to or wanted to play a pirate game.

    Hold up here: that's not so cut and dry!  Many of these pirates end up paid to do exactly what they were already doing, except for countries in a way those countries could distance themselves from the less than savory actions of the privateers.

    In a game of war, are you worse than the main combatants merely because you aren't joining one of their sides?

    I despised pirates in EVE and never would have joined such a corp.

    The only group lower on the ladder for me was high sec war dec corps.

  • TokkenTokken Member RarePosts: 2,070
    will wait to see what happens with the game.  Server problems incoming, i think.
    Make PvE GREAT Again!

    I'd caution not to go into it looking for that game; it seems many players are disappointed when they go into a game with specific expectations.

    The trailer looks like hella fun in a "this is ridiculous why is that whale and that giant hammerhead teaming up on my poor ship" kind of way.  If the technical side is solid, it seems like a pretty cool exploration type game with friends.

    If it turns out good for what it is, I'd hate to see you disappointed because you hyped yourself for what it may not be.

    That sounds really fun.

    It would be cool if devs made a really good pve experience, even one that wasnt really deep story wise but hooked you with combat mechanics then slowly added pvp into it.
  • badermalbadermal Member UncommonPosts: 182
    but i dont think people will do pve on pvp server  just little pve but not much but crafting building  yes then sure it happens but killing monster i dont think

    I think PVE server will be more than  PVP server , if the game good enough , that is .
    If you give a chose then most people will chose pve instead .

    With a question like "any old school players gonna play..." even 1 old school player logging in once would qualify as a "yes" ;)

    On a serious side - none of my guildies have any interest - so the likelyhood of me playing this is low to none.
