Note you have to click on the blue "View ignored content" link to see the dev post because their forum software allows members to "vote" (flagging) to "hide" other people's posts, including devs.

Wut?

Feels apropos that their forum software setup allows for griefing. The game has a similar mass report abuse autoban feature that unscrupulous guilds are taking advantage of.

Nah, they just didn't learn anything from slashdot or reddit, where that sort of brigading had to be blocked.

Just like they didn't learn anything from previous MMOs.

Played day two of release up til maybe 2 weeks ago... got into my 50s but ran out of steam...  Over and over I would hear myself or a friend in Discord say something along the lines of:

"Didn't we learn in Shadowbane/WoW/Daoc/etc. that this was a bad idea"
"Didn't the MMO community learn that this is a really bad idea back in 2005?!?"
"Didn't we learn that if it can be abused it will be abused???"

It was very pretty I will give you that, and I liked big chunks of the game.

The idea that you were taxed more on houses in game than Mr. Space Cowboy himself pays IRL was some of the best unintentional humor of 2021.

If @cubesos is to be believed that confirms what I speculated on earlier that the game's underlying engine is not designed to handle the large-scale faction-based PvP the game eventually morphed into because it was originally designed for small team-based Rust / Conan-style PvP.


Necro... or do we still say "Bloodworth"?

If only some company named Mythic had made a similar mistake many years ago with its engine's capabilities and the MMO Dev community could have learned from that mistake.

A Bloodworth isn't a necro, it's a repost.

Numbers are 90% lower of what it was when it launched. We are talking about 100k at peak which are not shit but not great. They are launching "mutators" for dungeons this month though, which are pretty cool.

You call it an accident. I call it justice.

If that happens and I can play it on my laptop, I'll make an account for the HA HAs

If you are looking through this game's history, take a shot every time the word dupe comes up. Then pray they can dupe you a new liver.

I'd try it for free, maybe. I'm one of those 1% that plays these games for setting and story, and the setting really doesn't appeal to me, and I have heard absolutely nothing about the story, or even if it has one.

But that said, since I don't raid, or PvP, or buy/sell game items for profit, if they can make the single and small group game fun I'd be all right.

The story was:  you are shipwrecked on an island and there are 3 factions fighting for resources. Oh, and the island is full of Zombie Pirates!!!

There must be more to it that than, but in 54 levels that is all I picked up on.  Questing is very much along the lines of Everquest's Kill Ten Rats school of thought.
