    I think the big hurdle this game will have with retention is what a lot of sandbox struggle with.

    This is not a solo experience. Progression slows to a crawl in both leveling and crafting if you dont have a guild behind you.

    I actually just want PvE to be passable. It doesn't have to be stellar, but I enjoy world conflict that arises from something a little random like wanting to kill some grubs or wolves and running in to someone else who wants the same thing.

    Chill PvE becomes interesting low risk PvP that doesn't feel like a punishment. Like... Build your guild castles and shit, but give people a chance to explore and fight without it being ridiculous in time cost or risk.

    My favorite times in Shadowbane were running around with one or two other people and trying to take out leveling camps and gold farming groups. Oh, the fights over rune drops? Those were ridiculously fun times.

    Small fights for resources I can see happening. Disc arent world drops and probably wont be, unfortunately.

    Not me, I get wood thinking about the summon chains on the way to banes. Getting 30 to 40 people in place to play lumberjack at somebody's tree, all in the space of 2 minutes, that's my best Shadowbane memory.

    Is this game PVP only? Cause I have literally 0 interest in PVP.

    There are aspects of this game that do interest me, specifically crafting and more specialized game economies and such. But warring kingdoms and seasonal conquests or whatever have very little interest to me.

    Probably not down your ally if you hate PVP games. Same with Camelot Unchained. The main event in Crowfall is the PVP throne battles.

    You can play the game and probably enjoy being a crafter main, but you are honestly paying a to ignore the actual unique aspects of the game at that point. PVP is their focus

    "Is this game PVP only? Cause I have literally 0 interest in PVP."

    There are worlds that have no PvP, like the Eternal Kingdoms and God's Reach. The things there are to do in those worlds: fighting creatures, gathering resources, crafting, building structures...

    So apparently referral links are a thing. This one is mine, with 10 uses. It lets people buy backer packs for 20% off.

    In case you haven't been paying attention to the game in awhile, like myself, this guy has a fairly recent (two weeks) video showing off a keep defense.



    The video isn't a deep dive in to the game and its systems, he just gives a play-by-play on his Guild's defense of a keep. He explains what the objectives are, why attackers/defenders are doing what they're doing and explains the general flow of combat in a siege.

    Looks pretty good to me.

    edit- Still in pre-alpha (or just Alpha?) though.

    I'm pretty sure the game itself says pre-alpha while playing. There was talk about gearing up to hit open beta early this year, but, eh, I dunno. They still don't have skill trees for disciplines in.

    August 11th is when the first open beta invites go out. I wish everyone good luck in getting in.

    I've been coming back now and then to check on it. They're having a hard time figuring out a good NPE, but the game is fun.

    Oh hey, I got into the beta! Only took 4 years.

    First impressions, man, I hope they optimise the game before release, it kind of runs like a dog. And the UI behaviour could use some rethinking, why does opening my Skills window also reopen my inventory and my crafting window and anything else I mass-closed with Escape earlier? Do I really need to manually close each window every time, just to avoid covering up my entire screen to use the UI?

    Mechanics seem interesting so far, I'm messing with a Duelist and probably completely screwing myself over with my stat investments, but what else is new.

    Also, apparently I either thought profile name was my login name, or they weren't storing capital characters properly when I signed up for the account, but my lowercase character name is bugging the hell out of me.

    Is anyone actually playing this right now? I've been a backer for like 3 years but I've never been able to get into it. I wanted to jump back in and see if I can play with anyone.

    Alas, got the beta literally days after I picked up FF14 again (after like 3 years), which sure is some timing. I messed around and found it interesting, but there's no way I can play two MMOs at the same time.

  • RoeRoe Farming Greater Rifts Registered User regular
    Just got an email inviting me to close beta. Going to give it a shot today.
