Re: Korean Publisher Announced

F2P is both the payment model with the most potential, and also the most frequently misused monetary model a game can use. The F2P crowd, in my experience, has the highest tendency to attract lazy, entitled gamers who feel that a game which they pay nothing for should cater to them the most. While I...

Re: Korean Publisher Announced

Awesome! I REALLY would like to see for myself how much skills each class is granted. I like balanced game mechanics but if there's only like 10 skills per class that'd be ... I'm gonna say not so exciting. I totally respect that you have your own opinion, but I think you may be underestimating the...

Re: An Appeal to Class Exclusivity

In RO, players can, and have, gone permanovice. Permanovice is not practical, but compare that to any other mmo that offers class advancement. A permanovice is possible, but not supported. A permawizard is both possible and supported. Your comparison does not hold water. How many max level characte...

Re: Helo

Sadboys is cubez idea of being super memetastic. It's what fans of a painfully white autotuned Swedish rapper call themselves. So we probably aren't the only ones, no.

Re: An Appeal to Class Exclusivity

The skill points, for me, represent a very minor quirk. The issue for me is that the slated classes in ToS are highly unique, both in the sense that other mmos lack almost all of them, and in the sense that they are very unlike each other. By the time a character has reached a high rank class, he is...

Re: An Appeal to Class Exclusivity

One of the most confusing issues is how to even explain the class advancement system in this game. While I am not one for forced tutorials, I believe that the old style of gaming in which you are thrown into a world and told nothing is an antiquated model that doesn't jive anymore. People are not go...

Re: Economy

It is totally up to the players ... economy and prices ... you know supply and demand works just fine as long as nobody tries to fuck with it But people WILL, why do you think wow has such inflation? people jack up the price to line thier own pockets, in turn raising the standard price. WoW's bigge...

Re: What would you like to have added to the game.

I think one of the biggest things I hope for in this game is for them to expand it without significant power creep. That was really what did RO in in so many ways. Increased stats and homogenized super-gear killed any diversity in GVG and power creep from trans classes led to too easy mvps which le...

Re: What would you like to have added to the game.

Inventive boss fights that allow for the full range of class combos to be worth the trouble. Some bosses should require unique approaches. On the same vein of bosses, I would really appreciate if player power wasn't so explosive in its growth that people are effectively soloing group bosses.

Re: MMOs and the "spirit" of Ragnarok Online?

Lot of RO vs WoW comparison going on, which I suppose is fair. Mainly they differ in that the terms sandbox and theme park apply to them, respectively. To explain for those who aren't aware of what it means, a sandbox game is open to player interaction. You set the tone, the pace, and the story alon...

Re: Economy

Dragon Nest had one of the best economic filtering systems I've seen in a game. For those not familiar, it was a multi stage process in which you used mid-high quality gear, refined it with the necessary resource and a spot of currency, and then "broke down" the refined item into dust. The dust was ...

Re: An Appeal to Class Exclusivity

Uterus I believe that the costumed effect is going to have a compounding effect on the problems that the current model is going to have. Any PvP game is about reading an opponent and playing from several steps ahead, not just reacting to what they do. In essence by making multiple classes available...

Re: An Appeal to Class Exclusivity

The Proposal Rather than the A/B/no change model which encourages a player to follow the easiest leveling route in order to obtain their end goal specialization, instead there is a much simpler solution. Currently, a player who wishes to play R9A--whatever class that will be--must first decide what...

Re: An Appeal to Class Exclusivity

System One: Complete Carryover In the first system, we see a transition from R1 -> R2~9 -> R10, in which all skills carry over from the base class, eight advanced classes inbetween, with a maxed level character at R10 (assuming full advancements were taken), assimilating ten ranks worth of skills t...

An Appeal to Class Exclusivity

The current class model is something that I both admire and dread. Each will be explained in what I hope will be adequate detail to make the point clear on what it is that I am appealing to. In an opening gesture, I will introduce myself and give a brief history of my favorite games so as to provide...
