    Steam shouldn't allow reviews at launch IMO.  They should only allow reviews a month after release.

    Well, is it that bad?

    Matters not, I have the Storm Fleet and the Brazen Coalition and a bottle of rum! Fuck the Vampires! Well, not literally. ;)

    That would only send the signal to devs that they don't need to even attempt to launch smoothly; no Steam user can note the stability/performance issues for a month.

    All that will do is allow people putting out a garbage product to collect funds for a garbage game for a month with impunity. Do it right and put out a quality product. First impressions are important.

    If the Devs weren't charging money for a beta test, then yeah, maybe.

    If you are interested in the game then try it for your self. I have no interest in the game but if I did I would buy it regardless of the reviews. Some of the best games I have enjoyed are ones that did not get good reviews.

    From those who manage to play without daunting server problems attm:



    Waiting for the dedicated server software tho, should give the official servers breathing room.

    Or alternatively people shouldn't buy into an unfinished, early access title and expect it to behave like a finished and polished product.

    29% positive reviews on Steam, and yet it's also a top seller.  It seems that peoples' appetite for early access dog shit knows no bounds.

    Well lets see to what i read on the main page..Oh wait i forgot people can't read on Steam..

    Early Access Game

    Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

    Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more


    I retired retroactively..Haha

    It doesnt prove that people are desperate for any new MMO.

    Remember that ARK sold 7 million copies- huge fanbase for a specific survival based type of game.

    Majority of Atlas players are ARK players.

    Concluding that this same thing would happen for any other MMO is wrong.

    So no - people are not desperate for a new MMO - this is a huge ARK fanbase buying the next "ark" game

    200k+ people have been eagerly anticipating the game on Twitch for over a week, if anything it proves that Twitch is unmatched as a platform for free advertisement (which will directly effect your sales in a positive way due to hype).

    It's a top seller as a direct result of that marketing, which is also why the reviews are overwhelmingly negative. People got hyped, bought into the marketing, and then realized it wasn't what they expected or became frustrated with the technical issues.

    It's safe to assume that if your didn't like ARK, you won't like this game.

    Well Ark was released in far worse shape,like basically a pile of crap.

    This game i guess some underwater bugs,the combat/pvp animations look hitchy as hell,some dumb ideas like punching rock is how to attain some sand,i doubt even the most primitive of beings would try and punch rock.

    Forsen is playing with his band of misfits,that is good enough reason to stay far away because if he plays it ,it must cater to 6 year olds.

    Yes some streamers will give games a hefty boost but some will ruin your product with how they act,carry themselves in game.
    I totally believe that post that mentions this was an Ark dlc at one time and NOT a standalone game and that would be the answer to my original question as to why this game just came out of nowhere.

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

    And as such, the cycle of gamers attacking gamers continues while devs continue to pull shitty moves and watch as that tribalism literally makes them money.

    This is undoubtly a (cheap) game which originally was intended to be a mod for ARK (the hidden menu strongly suggests it, with the "ocean" addition to settings). I bought it nevertheless, and had some hours into it before the lag became too bad (played at night in EU). If I disregard the technical issues, theres still parts which heavily annoy me, concerning the gameplay;

    When announced, it was announced as a game with a massive playerbase. I never really thought the numbers 60 000 was it? I dont remember, but lots of zeros) could be accurate, but still, its a pretty damned big downgrade to actual 150 players isnt it. In particular because I am a vivid PvP'r, enjoying mass scale battles (I actually had a lot of fun early stage ArcheAge with the large sea-battles), and max 150 players, weher some do pve, some craft, some explore, some are taking a dump, well, in the end, what you will have is smallscale. Not at all living up to my expectations. Not at all.
    Then the combat. I admit I think its pretty shite. Maybe worse. Chose weapon left click. Move. Right click. Move.
    The graphics doesnt look anywhere near what was presented during various trailers, which clearly was labeled as actual gameplay. Booo.
    UI is terrible. Really really bad.
    customization is shallow, including character progression. Hit a tree with your fist to collect lumber? Wtf? Devs, please, just give the newbies some starting equipment so you and they dont have to make a jackass of it.
    Copy paste confirmed.And I dont like it. I dont expect every island to be unique, but so far theres 5 various island models. 
    Thats about what I have discovered personally the few hours playing it. I have a feeling theres more to it. Have tried to stay away from the streams, but have been told theyre not too impressed either.
    And that EA tag. WTF is that? Its a mod of ARK, which has been in EA for how long? 4-5 years? How long are companies allowed to stay in EA with their games and thus tanking shit performance and gameplay? Its about time Steam places a LIMIT on EA status. Get your shit sorted in max 1 year as soon as you start charging for a game or refunds.

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    Even high end PCs struggle to get good FPS, one of my gaming friend bought it and he get about 20-25fps and his setup is I5 7600, 16 gig ram and 1070ti card, dosent matter what setting he uses always the same crappy fps.

    So I recommend Naval Action if you want you wooden boat pirate game.

    As to be expected really, they've made no claims towards the game's current optimization level, and I'm not sure this studio is terribly good at doing so.  Not likely to ever be much more stable or optimized than ARK currently is considering they are clearly building on and extending on it's framework.

    Is Naval Action like world of tanks where you only really control your boat?
