And THAT's why it's alpha!

RE: Open Playtest Server Restart (May 29, 1pm CEST)
What's your motivation for your pledge pack?
So, I got the immortal package. I liked the perks it has to offer such as: VIP for life, house, carpenter contract, etc. Now, I don't know what that means per se, but it sounds like something I'd kick my own ass for not having when the game is released. I don't know what the size or look of that house or whatever is either, but I'm guessing that to NOT have it would be a very daunting task once release happens.
As far as game play, I like testing things and giving my two cents. Truth be told, apart from my own observations, I want to be "in the know" by the time the game releases so there isn't such a curve at first. Alpha allows you the advantage to make all the mistakes everyone else will be making when they first start.
I like to help others as well, so knowing a bit about the game prior to launch is a good way to make friends or be helpful to new people when they start. I've tested other alphas and played days on end before figuring out something that would have saved me hours/days of time. If I can help someone do that, it feels good.
Finally, even though there is limited information and the updates aren't back to back, it tells me that they aren't willing to just put out a bunch of hype just to get the numbers. I like the air of mystery. I've enjoyed most every video they have and the entire idea around the three worlds is really cool. Anyway, I've rambled too much.
What's your story?
RE: Where can I view what stats do?(Detection/Willpower/ETC)
@Deftly I agree, it would be nice when you pull up your character you could hover over the stat and it gives a brief description.
RE: Bounty Hunting & Jails - Official Feedback Thread
What I honestly see happening, regardless of this system, is that "evil" people will start on the demon planet, gain all the KP they can there, then head to the human planet, gain all of the KP there and start to really become toxic after that point. Sure, they will get a slap on the wrists but then what? They will befriend others of like mind and terrorize the planet. That will end up forcing everyone that thinks the balance sucks to move to Arboreus. This alone already has me thinking of trying to get all the KP I can on Syndesia, then moving to Arboreus and never looking back. Is that what the devs want? Who knows.
I've watched the global chat. I don't want anything to do with some of those toxic people at all. I actually saw someone in global say "I will go to your house and kill you over and over". That statement immediately soured my taste for this game, and I've been here years. I'm just saying this is only my opinion, but there are many silent people out there that think the same way.
I have a few points I'd like to make.
- There are some people in this thread that need to pick a decaffeinated version of their coffee.
- I agree with cash shops for cosmetics or convenience. If you can get someone to pay in lieu of what they may consider a waste of time, it doesn't hurt anyone and people can choose to do it however they wish. IE, house plans, faster travel, cosmetics, etc. None of this would affect the rate of how fast you can kill someone or clear monsters, dungeons, etc.
- @Prometheus I think you all are doing an amazing job and my hope is that this game really takes off for everyone. Having PvP, PvE, PvX as a viable option for all people in the game is outstanding. I also think that you all could do as some others suggest with cash shop types of things. A way for the community to help support this game post launch is amazing.
- Arguing on the internet...no one wins. Discussions and debates...get creative ideas across lines.
Developer updates, any updates...
I've been following a while now and I understand nothing is ready, polished, etc. but it seems like it's really a long time between any updates. It would be nice to have a monthly "anything" even if it is to say they are just working on this or that, etc. I know quite a few think like this as well and we aren't even stating that we need to hear any progress or anything, but even just an outreach to the community with a few lines would be nice. Anyway, just my two cents.
RE: November 5 Server Crash - Ongoing Investigation
Let's look at the bright side. At least the stone will be respawned! Woohoo!
