Now I love the 40K IP, in my opinion it's the best scifi epic we will ever see. I've always wanted to see a 40K MMO ( not so much a Warhammer one, and we see how well WAR turned out), and I am very excited about what I saw out of Vigil's E3 trailer. I think I first heard about Vigil making this game about a year or so ago, and even then with no picture's or news, going on only what Vigil said on their site, I got super stoked. Although the trailer was better than what I had wished for, I so far see multiple problem's, or error's.
I know Vigil teamed up with GW, and did their home work, and I know they have to make the story a little dumbed down for people to understand and for it to fit in the current MMO world; but two factions? WTH is this?
Yes there are Orks, Chaos, Space Marines and Heretic's, (and maybe Imp Guard) so far. But all under two factions? Make's no sense. From the gameplay video that means there would be 3 factions under the host's of Destruction faction and one under the Order faction, if they followed lore. But Chaos and Ork's would never fight side by side. They could easily be in the same location, both fighting for the same reason, but they would fight each other as well. Now I know this game has a long way to go, but atm, all I can hope for is something new in the MMO genre. Example: Join the hosts of Destruction, which is just a term used by the Imperium of Man for their enemies, and even though under one banner you're still an enemy to other's under you're banner as well. Which would make it Chaos VS Orks, like it should be.
That's just a thought. I know it is easier to make one faction with the multiple "races" ( using that just to explain) like Orks and Chaos, than making their own factions. But maybe Vigil will do something clever.
Another thing. The tabletop of 40K is built around squad's, and grouped unit's. There are the few solo piece's that move around as they please; but is Vigil putting the player in control of one of these Elite's or Commander's? Or will the player be a normal Space Marine out on the field? If the player is an Elite, like in the tabletop, I can see it. But if you're character is just a normal Space Marine, then I can't see it. SM's work in group's, like Ork's do but in large number's. Yeah, Vigil could put in combat companion's or groupd based missioning, it's all to early to tell. Just pointing it out.
I know Vigil won't make the mistake's WAR did, and THQ is very good with the way they treat 40K ( DoW 1&2, Fire Warrior) it's all to early to tell. I'm just talking about it. But no matter what they do, I will play it just because of the IP and see what they plan to do with it. I'm excited, the combat vehicles looked fun, the graphics looked decent. The are more thing to point out just about the trailer, but I wont. Im very interested to see what they do with SM chapter's and in-game balancing.
