Shadowbane, the best PvP games ever to be released onto the market until sb2 comes out
. Of course there are a few things that turn people away.
1/ no jumping, of course no jumping, it takes away from tactics and returns lag and exploits, so why have it? pointless
2/ WASD this is a big selling point for some people, let me tell you if everyone was using wsad to move around the game wouldnt be improved at all, unlike other games you dont need to run and jump around a person to win a fight (WoW) and the tactics behind a point and click movement system are far more indepth than a wasd can provide, along with less sploits and lag again.
3/ graphics, people complain all day about graphics on this website, you eye candy whores can do 1 think imo, go to EQ2 or WoW and have fun questing and raiding all day, happy flowers and sunshine is what you want, shadowbane wasnt made to make your eyes happy, its all about your Pride and Ego. You take EQ2 graphics and throw a 200+ person siege together that = a lag fest that hardly any decently availible server or client Inet Connection can provide. And personally i think shadowbanes graphics are better then Eq2 and WoWs due to more realism and sizing, i mean wow is a cartoon hell hole and eq2 is filled with miss shapen figureds of humans and other races with bad skins.
I just felt like ranting because i get so pissed at people who complain all day about stupid minor things in a game like the above and dont focus on the true meaning of MMOs. FUN.
So to all thinking about playing SB, do it. Give Greyvok A tell and i will set you up with decent guilds gear anything you need to make you feel less inferior to the vets, we dont want to scare away nubs, we want to teach them.
