  • Any PvP game to recommend?

    Any time someone brings up "PvP" in a MMO forum I feel the need to promote Vendetta Online:

    There is no invisible dice rolling determining the outcome in combat; move, shoot, dodge, be aware of your surroundings. Recover after being hit with a force-dealing weapon. Be like water. 

    It really does feel like practicing a martial art.

    That's at the fighter level. There is also a layer of capital ship combat I have very little experience in which includes economics, slow tactics, strategy, and according to the lead dev will have emphasized roles in the coming expansion.

    Really cool stuff on the horizon involving capital ships like exploration and station construction.

    Edit: here, read for yourself:

    jeasus why people are such haters... what happened to the world? why the f companys who make games should make what you want? they have an idea and they do it.. if they will start to listen what players want so they will have to create like 5 million different games because people dont want the same stuff.. jeasus just start using your stupid heads, stop being so egocentrics.. jeasus people suck in 21 century..
    If somebody makes a Ferrari and tries to sell it as an airplane, it isn't "hating" to point out that it's a car, not a plane.

    Carry on.

  • its happened

    I don't think it was the game. I think it was me,  I just blew off the last "user" i knew and for some reason I feel better and some what liberated. It has been a very long road for me , and I have addiction issue with substance abuse, and today I said "no" . It is hard typing and admitting it , but here it is for me to reread later if I need too. I will be re-reviewing bless at max level.  Wasn't fair to the game that I took out my anger  and visceral on it. 

    its been a tough year.
    Easy does it, and so and so. 

    I'm glad to see you're being proactive, and I hope this year gets much, much better for you.
