Hello there frequent Visitor.
I have been part of many over-hyped and disappointing Releases.
In other words and for all of you, who just skip over posts (like me).
The journey is its own reward.
hmm "genesis" sounds pretty good, although i'm not a big fan of christian ideology and a lot of people are gonna make that connection.
not sure if someone already brought "origin" up
it fits in my opinion very nicely.
on the other hand i think PFO.75 is awesome aswell :D
I have seen my fair share of general chat topics over the course of time, some were entertaining, some were down right annoying me
If i could start a petition on what kinda talk you need to remove from chats, it's the whole WoW comparison drama that happens every time. But sex?
If someone is being a complete jerk, i put em on ignore.
In my opinion you just remove a part of the mmo entertainment.
Other then that, authenticators sound great and are really needed.
My post was not intended to be passive-aggressive, if you felt it was, i'm sorry if my approach offended you.Also i'm quit aware what Nihimon does and i'm grateful for it, in the end all we want is the best sandbox MMO ever.
As he stated himself he was excited and stuff happens when you are excited!
it's all good
@Diskord: Nihimon somehow manages to ask questions that Ryan is disposed to respond to, perhaps it's easier for Ryan to answer separate questions in separate posts? Either way he's doing something right! :)
yeah he definitly does :Di ment the first four posts though, no questions there.
alas its not a big deal, its just hard to overlook, maybe he wants to reach 2k posts asap or something.
Great update, i was waiting for some character concepts to show up.
The whole alignment part got me intrigued, everything that makes my characters interaction with the world change, is a good thing.
And nihimon do you not like the edit button, or is there some other reason, i'm oblivious off, that makes you post 4 times in a row?
good point ryan, i would never have considered that.
Since people build the content, you need a lot of people to test how that works out for them.
Seeing as there are some really dedicated people visiting these forums on daily basis, it would be rather weird not to make use of them, building the game and turn it into FUN.
Cause thats what it all boils down to in the end, if a game is not fun, i will not be playing it.
elorebaen, read that quote again.
We want to encourage folks to begin self-organizing even before the game is ready for testing. We'll do our best to recognize those organizations that get created early, especially if they announce their existence on our messageboards. How awesome will it be to start playing Pathfinder Online and already have the seeds of the early social order in place? We can't wait to see it all develop and we're so excited to have the community along for the ride!
especially the part about self-organizing and how they wanna see it all develop. the way i understand it, they want us to start building up organizations. and i disagree on denying groups for whatever reasons before the game is even released.
i'm curious as to how this will work out. never got into EVE so i can't really comment on the system they use. the whole concept seems rather clever though. let the community build their own world, that should pretty much shut up the whole whining about how there is no content, we will have to create our own.
sounds promising all in all, each blog gets me more excited.
good job guys
look at what you did, now i have to go and try DDO..
seriously, my rule of thumb is: "if you can play it with one hand, it's not challenging" i'm sick of having the desire to watch a movie on my second screen.
while i do understand the fascination with perma death, i don't see myself playing an mmo that is actually using it.
khanquers post is full of passion and i wholeheartedly agree with almost everything he wrote.
i'm not very experienced with mmo's, i played a few though.
right now mmos bore me to death. somehow i thought SwTor would change that with a compelling story. How wrong i was, i see myself abusing the space button to skip over most of the conversations. after that i get the joy of moving out and repeating the same old combat over and over again until i finish my quests, then it's back to the talkative guy for some xp and loot.
i feel like i'm stuck trying to re-creat the whole sense of wonder and joy i had when i played my first mmo and everything was new and great. i'm pretty sure i'm not the only one.
the first time you found something, that you had no idea what it was for. you had to figure it out yourself or get lucky and find someone who knew. there was no huge database site where you could look up EVERYTHING.
from what i heard so far, PFO could be something new and refreshing.
well, i have experienced how much fun an mmo can be.
how much that experience is moving away from a traditional rpg single player game is kinda your own choice.
how much time you invest in the game is your choice aswell.
the only thing that is really not in your hands is the subscription, but that is already settled with a f2p option.
so what exactly would keep you from playing the game?
