    No, he would be thrown out of the pvp community if he hadn't done that.
    It's one of the basic test criteria for a "hardcore" pvper.

    The others are:
    - Playing a stealth character - he gets a pass on that too
    - Ganking / Zerging - preferably at least 10 v 1 just to make sure of the win. Jury's out on RipperX here as we haven't seen that in this video.
    - Camping in low level areas - at least 20 levels below your own character. Again not seen that in this video, so RipperX needs to make sure it's in his next one - otherwise hardcore pvp membership is in jeopardy here.

    As soon as I get my new house with more room to store heads, I'm going to gank anyone and everyone. Just you wait. MUHAHAHAHAA!

    Not sure if I want to play on player created servers.  I don't trust some random guy to efficiently run a server and just get kicked if I do something he decides he doesn't like. I would prefer to play on an official PvE server to avoid gankers like RipperX, but I don't know if there will be official PvE servers. If not, I'll probably pass on this.

    How is movement controlled? WASD? Click to move? Holding down a mouse button and scrolling in a direction to move is insta carpal tunnel for me so I hope they offer some choices and keymapping if thats the case.

    Flizzer, there will be different servers with different rulesets. There is definitely options for players who don't want to be ganked by Thugs like me.

    BeBop - Yes, you can control movement by using WASD or also Left Mouse, Right Mouse rotates the camera. There's an options menu as well where you can customize to your liking.

    last ? re: movement....is there an autorun feature? (fingers crossed it's numlock, or again, the ability to keymap it as so)..
    Thanks

    It's not about carebear at all,i simply look at an idea objectively and decide if i would want to be EITHER player and the answer is no from BOTH sides.

    Being able to kill someone with almost no risk at all is not something i consider fun or exciting or challenging.I would look at it basically like saying ok i am going to join a sports league with 10 year olds,gee i wonder if i 'll be the superstar.

    The game itself and the idea is imo a good one,i might end up playing this eventually in my spare time.

    I have noticed that we are always clicking through a wasted click to get to these articles then i realized they are click counting for money reasons,always wondered why we didn't just go directly to the article.So in essence seems shotty on the delivering of these reviews.

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

    Yes there's an option to toggle between walk, run, and sprint( sprinting costs stamina).

    Official servers will run multiple rulesets, including PvE, PvP, and depending on demand the HardCore/PermaDeath ruleset.(That ruleset will be made available to server admins regardless if there is enough demand for us to maintain a cluster dedicated to it)

    Yeah, that is tre right way of doing things. Maximizes potential players without watering out the gameplay for the fans (which most MMO seems be doing).

    Shards have a lot of potential. One thing that didn't impress me what was I saw when he modified his character though, the customization options seemed pretty small. Lets hope that Ripper either only showed us a little or that more will be added before launch.

    The graphics certainly isn't cutting edge but it is at least acceptable and I will pick this game up on release. After all, if it was graphics that was the most important thing with MMOs Korean games would do far better here in the west. :)

    Comon, RipperX can scare at least 10 people just by being present... gotta count for somehing.

    Great intro video, reminds me of ultima. Could be quite fun :)

    The game looks great. Cant wait for it to get released.

    "Has a lot of potential" is usually code for "sounded good on paper but didn't deliver". The concept is interesting, but if the video is any indication I'm probably not far off going with that.

    That is "had a lot of potential".

    True story- During the Kickstarter Broadcast I hunted down Supreme while he was explaining the game and PKed him live. Took him a few seconds to understand he was under attack. It was pretty funny and made me really love the game the way they laughed about it :)
    Good stuff.

    I am excited for the game. I have not spent the $40 to get into the Alpha because I want to wait for more features to be added to the game first. Really does seem to have that UO and NWN vibe. Sounds awesome!

    Wow this game seems to have so many features that we used to talk about with people on this website years ago... should be easy to implement bounty hunter and stuff like that since you can loot someone's head.
