Thanks for reporting this, @Aries. It's a bug of our forum platform, we have no control over it, but hopefully it will be fixed in one of their upcoming patches.

RE: Our journey begins today, with you
@Prometheus should we expect alpha in 2018? Also have you thought if there are gona be wipes between phases or will the party start from alpha? Also pleeeaaaseee explain character progression soon enough cause when i read "grind free" tears come down my eyes!
You can expect alpha in 2018 for high-tier backers, as explained in our FAQ. There will be wipes after every testing phase until full release - but of course if you own a Founder Pack or have purchased hard currency, you get it all back after each wipe. As for the Knowledge System, it will be explained in one of the upcoming dev journals, of course!
Anyway, @Siltoruz @Vetro @ooBENONIoo @Holya these are the Fractured forums, not the Linkrealms forums. If you want to talk about Linkrealms, feel free to do so in the Off-Topic section, not here :slight_smile:
RE: Why will the control be based on a mouse?
Hi @33Hp! Fractured uses a top-down camera that doesn't rotate - if you've played games like Diablo, Path of Exile, Torchlight, you will know what I mean. With this type of camera, keyboard controls don't make much sense. You use your left hand to cast spells clicking buttons on the keyboard and your right hand to hold the mouse (moving and using basic attacks). It's pretty much the industry standard!
RE: Our journey begins today, with you
Hi @Chiengngan06! Fractured will be available in 2018 for high-tier backers, it's currently in pre-alpha.
@Holya if I get your meaning of "in-engine", that's not. Anyway, several more screenshots and eventually videos as well are going to be released in the coming weeks :slight_smile:
Ahhh the mystery! Can you just tell us how much the shot that @Holya posted is representative of the art style of the game? Is it any indication of the view angle during gameplay?
It's a very pre-alpha screenshot, but it's broadly representative of the art style and absolutely representative of the view angle.
Just one important request man! Do not restrict PvP like it was in Linkrealms!
Hi Vetro :slight_smile: The whole topic of PvP will be treated in a very innovative way on Fractured. You can get some hints about it from the game's homepage and on the press
RE: Three races, three gameplays: A griefer's confession
THE ACTUAL QUESTION:
How much of an effect on my gameplay will my racial choice have? Will racials affect combat? Will players be rewarded/punished differently for murder/X depending on race?
I assume you've not cemented a majority of the mechanics yet, so s'understandable if you don't have answers. Still, the thought of heroically charging defenseless peasants without my perfect little wifu being there is sad.
It will have a huge impact. It will affect combat, yes, although that's not the most significant part of it. Sure they'll be punished differently - Beastmen just can't attack innocents at all, while Demons are assassins by default and there is no punishment for criminal actions on Tartaros. You could play as a Human and turn into an outlaw too, of course, but everyday life on Syndesia would get quite hard for you. Plus, raiding demons on Tartaros is a big deal for a Human, while the opposite is much easier, particularly during eclipses.
Game mechanics are very well cemented already, you just need to wait for all the dev journals exposing them
On a side note, I had to clear this thread from a lot of crap. Avoid spamming and using homophobic slurs. This is the first and last warning.
RE: People spamming other forums with their refferal codes should be banned
At one point there were a good 5+ posts regarding this on places like /r/mmo at the same time. A couple forums I frequented seemed to have a very negative opinion of Linkrealms purely from people spamming about it for keys
Interesting - I wasn't really aware of this, and it surprises me since players had to let us know of the links to the blog / forum posts where they talked about Linkrealms, and we would only reward non-spammy ones.
@Prometheus so you were/are the makers of linkrealms?
Yes, but were not the ones who started the development of the game - you can say we've been the ones who resurrected it :slight_smile:
RE: Referral link possible issue.
@Prometheus Quite frankly I thought I had read somewhere you guys weren't gonna go to KS because of the latest round of private funding you raised but I can't find anywhere that says that, so hmmm, not sure wth hehe.
I think I've also read something like that recently about another studio making a MMO, you probably got confused :slight_smile:
