Often we talk about game negatives and sometimes supporters feel that we leave out the positives.  This is a chance to talk about those!

List the positives but include only things that actually exist (not promised to someday exist) and nothing related to stuff you can buy.


Here I will start you off: 

  1. They have a diehard and dedicated community base of a few thousand potential players.  
  2. The developers interact with the diehard community on their forums
  3. They have demonstrated thousands of characters on screen at the same time
  4. They have a REFUND policy for those who change their mind

Reserved for all the future positives supplied:

  • Regular Email updates each Friday and Newsletters each month. These updates detail what was accomplished and what they plan to work on (Meddyck)
  • 3 Realms exist and are in game (Medyyck)
  • Players have been in the game's Alpha playing and testing for well over a year
  • Created their own engine to handle large scale battles
  • CUBE system useable by players which allows them to "test all aspects of the building system, including destructibility, physics, UI, etc. "  Over 1 BILLION blocks have been played thus far.
  • Published Guiding Principles list
  • Crafting is in game in a testing form (Medyyck)
  • 9 Classes currently in testing (Medyyck)




I will update this post with any positives that meet the above criteria.

Go!

    Off hand I've got nothing, but will update if I think of something.

    Apparently the only positive thing is people have largely forgotten about it.

    Come to think of it, I can't recall when I last recieved a news email from them, seem to have gone dark these days

    They send a weekly update email every Friday and a newsletter at the end of every month. If you aren't getting those emails, the email service they use (Mailchimp) may have auto-removed you for some reason. Others have had that happen. PM Mark or make a thread on the official forum and he'll take care of it.

    No P2W cash shop.

    No effort to raise 10s of millions of dollars selling mount skins or the likes. In fact they have stopped new stretch goals until Beta 1 begins.

    No PvE level and raiding grind before you can be competitive in RvR.

    3 realms with unique races and classes instead of 2 mirrored sides.

    Plenty of character slots so you can try out all the classes in your realm without having to spend money in a cash shop to unlock more slots.

    I guess some of those might not fully meet the OP's requirements, but I don't think there's any reason to worry that the game will be reduced to 2 mirrored realms for instance by launch.

    I get updates all the time.  Sometimes multiples a day.

    I don't READ them... but they come at least weekly.

    I haven't loaded it up in a long time.  I think the classes were implemented in at least rough form.  Is that correct?  That reminds me... is the CUBE builder still around and what is it's ultimate purpose?

    Game is still in alpha with an NDA, plus I'm not in the alpha anyway. 

    So, using your conditions, I can't talk about anything! Only thing I know for certain is Mark posts on these forums, which is great.

    Not true... plenty of stuff that can be listed in the OP and I'm sure there is plenty more to come!

    The Devs seem to me the most coherent bunch in this industry. They set down the principles for the game and are following them thoroughly.

    Also, unless I am mistaken, it seems to be the only MMO on the horizon where you pay X every month are guaranteed to have access to all content in game. No buying gold with real money, no cosmetics or convenience on a cash shop. THIS is what you pay and THIS is what you get.

    Hmm....maybe I did get dropped as someone else suggested.

    I can't wait to be a Pict or a Hamadryad or a umm something else.  Also the classes have unique names and the artwork so far is nice, imo.

    No cash shop.

    Also they are building an in house custom engine and it can not be over stated how much that will do for the game.

    Other than that I hope it's a lot like DAoC I played that for over a year and had multiple end game characters.

    Only the 9 classes (3 archers, 3 heavy fighters, and 3 pure healers) that are planned for the start of Beta 1 are in testing so far. For now you can also craft on any class although later there will be 3 distinct crafter classes.

    CUBE is still around AFAIK. I don't spend any time in it, so I can't say for sure. That's not part of the game that interests me. I guess the main purpose of CUBE is to thoroughly test the building system. It can take a long time to create a good looking building so testers would not really be able to do that during a 1-2 hour planned Alpha test. Also it gives Alpha and Beta 1 testers some access to the game during the long stretches of time when there aren't any tests.

    The only positive thing I can think of is that the game stopped being a joke of the industry... after all, a joke can only be funny if told so many times.

    For me  a key element id the fighting is based on  a struggle between three factions. This means that a player always has people will fight along side them and support them in  a pvp driven world. There is NO player looting.Almost everything in the game is created by the players.Crafters have a key role in the game.I can build and have my own house. Realm pride  ....a belonging to something bigger than yourself,  are key elements in the game.

    Here's another one - they know when to keep low profile.

    Especially when they can't begin to provide a planned release schedule after 5 yrs in Dev.
