Is it good to be BORED after first 20 minutes before server crashes?

I created a character.  Worked fine.  Not enough options, but that's cool.

Enter the world from one of three possible areas.

I see two players around town.  One is sitting, the other running around exploring it looks like.

So I equip my only weapon, looks like a dagger.  I head out of the town to try and find some quick action.

I run.  I run a huge circle.  I see nothing.  I take no damage from anything.  Even from jumping from high on a cliff. 

You can climb mountains at ease.  Almost as fast, if not as fast as if it were flat terrain.  Kinda silly.

But for Christ's sake!  I see not one fucking monster of any kind running around in a giant circle around the outpost i started in.  I took no damage from anything.

I noticed that I could have chopped would or mined for stone. Great, I have no tools though.  I might could have casted a spell while running, but no staff.  No money to buy one.  Nothing to fight to get stuff or money.

Then the fucking game crashed, server down or whatever as I was headed back to town to look for players to maybe get some kindof action.

Sheesh.

Graphics are pretty damn good to be honest.  Clipping is bad.  World is too dark, but the shadows are nicely done.  Smooth running, I had no lag at all.

But god damn, I'm was so bored my first 20 minutes in the game, I'm going to bed.

I will try tomorrow, but right now I am less then inspired.

AV - Give us some shit to fight man.  Nothing is fun about running for 20 minutes and not seeing one freaking mob!

First reaction score - Graphics 8/10.  Gameplay: 2/10  Fun factor: 1/10, Overall 2/10  I hope it gets better!

    Sorry to hear about your experience, but the goblin camps are right outside of the starting towns (hint, they're on your map once you get the quests).

    I had the same problem the first time I logged in.  There are goblin camps very close to all the starter towns, but you have to find them.  If you talk to the NPC near the bindstone, he'll give you a quest to kill them, and there locations will be added to your minimap.

     

    Servers are back up!

    Whatever fanboy.  Empty world.  You think it's a good thing to run miles and miles and not see anything?  I'll go outside and take a jog in my local park if I want to do that, better graphics, costs less, better for me, more fun too!  lol

    No cookie crumbs for you to follow eh?

    Seriously, if you you need some kind of carrot running in front of you to have fun, the game probably is not for you. The focus on this game is community, go around and try to kill some goblins, group up with some other people, get some loot in your bag, get some gold in your bank, then maby join a guild and start doing some pvp.

    Your not going to have fun if you just walk around picking out all the imperfections of the game.

    Kind of pointless to dish out scores after just catching a first glimpse of a game, really.

    I don't want to be an asshole, but you're a nub.

    Everything you are looking for is available you just have to look. The NPC you start by for example gives you a quest that gives locations on your map that are goblin spawns for you to hunt at. This will give you gold and fighting experience.

    Go in to town and look around, if you find the right merchant they will give you a quest to harvest. This quest will give you a hatchet and a pick.

    The game is not simple, it does not hold your hand but your inability to do anything was only because of your instant desires and lack of patience. 

    I'll say this from my month experience in beta which was both solo and clan based, if you are not a patient person DO NOT play this game. If you are a patient person and enjoy PvP with minimalist restrictions, you will likely love this game.

  • AragoniAragoni Member UncommonPosts: 345

    First of all you must be fucking stupid if you think you have the right to review a game from 20mins of gameplay, especially a sandbox game.

    Second of all this game is not for everyone. I agree, it wouldn't hurt the game if they added more mobs, and wildlife, but I had no difficulties in finding them in beta.

     Odd... during beta, there were 3 starting cities out of 18 that had bugged goblin spawns... may I ask which starter spot you chose?

    I know that Inner Ormhold in the mahirim lands had bugged gob spawns... the town there is where I started.

    I quickly managed to find spawns of kobolds elsewhere, however.

    This pretty much. There's a yellow dot on your mini-map. That's a quest giver. You take the quest and then it marks a spot on your mini-map where starters mobs are at.

    If you were just wandering I can see how you'd miss the spawns. Depending on the starter city you choose they can be kind of "off the beaten path," compared to other starter cities where you have to be blind to miss them.

    I had lots of crashes and freezeups before I switched to the newest gfx driver, catalyst 9.2 or something.

     

    Btw, talk to the closest npc's and take quests there and you'll get the goblin spawns on your map.

    Cookie crumbs? By the same token you would have radared all the available mobs in a 100k radius huh? Why open as a asshole? Why not simply say what you did without the toolage? Need daddys hand?

    Yep, was the inner Mahirim lands where I started. the middle choice.

    Hey every other mmo I've ever played had mobs everywhere out of the towns.  And I've played UO, AC1, AC2, EQ, EQ2, WoW, DAoC, Horizons, SWG, Irth, Guild Wars, Eve, Lineage, Lineage 2, Perfect World, Warhammer, AoC, CoH, D&L, Mourning, Vanguard, FF 11, Saga of Ryzom, and probably 20 more. 

    But I'm a "nub" cuz I think I might see some kinda life out of the town. 

    Yeh DF is just different cuz it's better then all those other games.  it's being a huge ass barren, empty lifeless world is GREAT! 

    What the fuck ever. 

    Quite frankley, I might have given this game another shot.  But if the only life that I'll find in this world is the kindof community that has responded here... you people should be ashamed of mocking the WoW community. 

    I never gave a "final review", I clearly stated I was simply judging it based on 20 minutes of seeing nothing.
