Bolstering Introduced to Equalize the Playing Field

The Chronicles of Elyria site has a new blog post that lays out a neat new in-game mechanic to help players maximize their time in game by equalizing the playing field when members of a "family" travel together. When a player of a higher level is partnering with others of a higher level, stamina is raised to the level of the highest character, though no additional abilities are added. In addition, "bolstering" as the CoE calls it, brings other stat increases to bear.

    Other games have had similar mechanisms. I thought it worked for the most part in those games. As long as it's done right here it should be fine.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    My ignore list finally has one occupant after 12 years. I am the strongest supporter of free speech on here, but free speech does not mean forced listening. Have fun my friend. Hope you find a new stalking target.

    I just don't see any reason to not play this game.

    If it released and had all the features I would agree!

    Unfortunately I lost count of how many awesome pre-release games just never delivered in reality.  Even the CEO says they are in "Pre-Production" so yes it sounds awesome on paper, but...

    This is the only game that I deeply truly am excited about. There's just nothing with this level of creativity in-the-works that I'm aware of. not just a game but an immersive world. I SOOOOooo hope it comes together as planned!

    I agree. What they have planned is pretty amazing. On paper anyway. I hope they can pull it all together. If they can I suspect this will be a special game.

    Another in a long line of mechanisms they have proposed in this game.  They will need super programmers to code all this if there is enough time left in the universe.

    These are ideals i do NOT like and seems the developer is straying far from it's original design.

    Stamina for example SHOULD strictly be to each individual,it should not carry some phantom fake number stat depending on how many players you have at a certain level.I have to give this idea two thumbs down.
    Do not like this Bolstering idea at all,i prefer the original design of creating realistic players to support realistic role playing,not fake or roaming stat numbers.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.
