Open world full loot PVP games always ends up getting dominated by one side after a while because you're literally losing your stuff. It is difficult for one little guy to play his game on his own unless he always hides in safe zones because he WILL get ganked by big bad demons when he decides to be brave and visit a different planet. I think this is a huge reason why games like Albion easily decline. Runescape is simply old school for some people, but honestly I hate full loot garbage really. I will give this game a try and see if they really deliver their "novel" experience.
Albion has 99 reasons to decline, but this is not one of them
