I believe helms as an item that NOBODY has EVER gotten right in an MMO. All I know is that if there's an option to not display helms, I ALWAYS use it. Of course, there's also the theory that you've spent all that time customizing your face, and then you can't display it for the world to see.

Warhammer (sorry to butt in with that game here, just think it fits the current topic) actually have a pretty interesting view on both shoulders and helmets. They are not "normal, generic" helmets and shoulders, but based on the class. Shadowwarriors for instance, their shoulders are a sort of hoodlike thing, slung over the shoulders, and covering half the face as well, a sort of bandit mask, but *very* cool looking.  I got my first helmet for my warrior priest last night, and what it added to my character, was actually a headband, a a cross hanging down the front of his chest. quite nice, actually...

do you honestly think they read why you are quitting?

we do the same thing, trick people with what appears to be service in my company, but basically, its nothing more than that - the appearence of a service, that isnt really there. But the important part is, it makes you *think* they listen to you, and thats all that matters.

just my two cynical cents ;-)

anyways, come to Warhammer instead...its a much better (and in better I mean grimmer) world ;-)

I read a post somewhere on warhammer aliancxe from a dev saying to link items in chat would need a code rewrite so isn't likely.

Ugh. How could you even forget to put that in? It's been standard in MMOs forever now.

My thoughts exactly...seems like a major thing that all MMOs do that they just kind of left out.  That it needs a major code rewrite is pretty silly when it should have always been there.

depends on what they want with the game, actually... I think in many cases ,what "wer are used to have to be in an MMO" could actually be design decisions... I dont miss it at all, actually, as I dont miss the chat either...gives me more incentive to actually speak to the people I meet..

well, take a look at the current forums, and you'll know why. They dont have to accept the responsibility, since there will always be morons they'll have to clamp down hard on, or watch the forums go to hell - once they do so, idiots will claim "freedom of speech" rights or some such, and the whole thing goes to hell...

Aoc forums was like this...sadly...
7526  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Warhammer] a few questions for the vets on: September 29, 2008, 11:58:36 AM
1) There willl be NO /dance, thank god - as for /duel, I dont thinkits ever been implemented, but thats pure speculation from my side

2) There are auction houses in the two major cities, Altdorf and the Inevitable city, reachable by flightmasters ,in all warcamps

3) nothing yet, but check out www.warhammeralliance.com where devs post regularely

4) Battlefield objectives are flags, you need to clear the gaurds there first, normally 5 normal ones, and one champion (lvl in tier1) - they are tied into scenarios in the way that it gives realm control both things. check the upper right corner for info on that

5)yup

6) yes it is, and patch notes are coming, when a patch is :-)

7) Euro here, so I dont know ;-)

have fun, this is the real thing! Best MMO in a looong time, IMO!

does this game have the same stuff, making it a living world?

as I see it, there's no story, no game other than a platform thing, and yes, you can make all kinds of stuff, but...really, who really does these things? With all the games available to us today, do we want to make our own game now?

I dont - lost all interest in this now....

Quote from: Razgon on September 28, 2008, 07:39:52 AM

okay, retract everything I ever said about this game, and not getting it...I get it!!! and damn that looks fun! My daughters and I are so going to play this - and 3 players support? Damn, now I need to get another controller!!

okay, i'm curious - what do you 'get' now that you didn't 'get' 2 months ago? (i'm thinking your sudden appreciation of the co-op potential has something to do with it? smile )...


i'm starting to think that lbp might be to video games what a free-form jam session is to music. not another sandbox, really... something quite unique, &, within the context of it's pseudo- 2-d environment, a game without boundaries, & a tool with pretty amazing potential (powerpoint, anyone?)...

exactly, I saw myself playing the game co-op, with three controllers, me and my two kids, and though that looked rather great, actually, and the level itself seemed rather fun.  Also, if the games level designer is so damn fine, it could actually be somewhat fun to make an ingame level! :-)

okay, obviosuly we have different game experiences, and no-one can really argue with how peple "feel" about a game :-)

Only,  I want to! ;-) To get to scenarios rvr, you can pretty much do so at lvl 3 and still have a blast!! dont worry, you'll level quickly - I just checked my latest toon at lvl 6, and playtime was almost 2 hours, thats all.... you get a LOT more xp by playing in scenarios, and course, you get the +960 xp for compelting a scenario quest as well each time, so...

also, I havent seen the "lvl 11 steamrolling" very much - I was lvl 5 on my shadowrwarrior, and dominted the damage playfield every time...the trick is, know your class I think...I just have to stay alive, to get to the top and get massive xp

This isnt meant as a "I'm right your wrong" kinda message, just my experiences and perhaps a little help on how to gain levels quickly :-)

Oh, I know and it was a con but not a complaint.  I'm still doing scenarios and other things even at 5-7 but there are level 11 steamrollers.  It's part of the game and staying in the group helps a lot but it's still frustrating getting 2 shot by a class you should be able to take smile  No problem though...because you can't turn off exp there are no twinks and the steamrollers are leveling past 11 and moving on the more they do pvp.  At this point I have probably six classes at 6-7 and have ruled out another 4 or so and deleted them. 

The other issue right now is the damn black screen of death.  My wife's computer is getting this (9600GT, Asus motherboard - basically the worst combination for this to happen).  Right now I'm using RivaTuner and lowered her clock speeds/memory speeds while bumping her fan speed.  This lets her play around 2 hours now before crashing instead of 30-40 minutes.  Lack of official forums really hurts here because I'm not following ten different forums looking for suggestions and developer responses.  And I'm sure not going to RMA a six month card because it crashes one game. 

as for forums, try out www.warhammeralliance.com - the devs come there a lot, and its a huge forum, with a tech section as well, might help to try that out :-)

oh, and just wait till you get to lvl 11 ;-)

This thread persuaded me to buy the game, Rich's thoughts were also useful to give another side. Never good just to have a all praise for a game.

Enjoying it a lot so far - although so far only played PVE and also PQ's - both of which I have found excellent. The map with quests area is inspired as is the Tome of Knowledge. Not played a MMO where it has been done so well.

My only issue was on performance. I don't have a slow machine AMD 3200, 8800GT, 2GB RAM and till now it has gone through all the standard games with no probs including WIC and Crysis which are notoriously hard on the machines. But I was getting real graphic lag which made play a little difficult to get immersed into.

Anyway

C:\Warhammer Online - Age of Reckoning\user
in usersettings.xml
The two lines with Specular and Lightmaps
specular="false" lightmaps="false"

Instead of true - for me this made a huge performance improvement. So if your gameplay is not as smooth as you would like. Well worth trying.

Tals


you *have* to try scenarios, Tals...really, its all its said to be...I dont like PvP in other games, but this? woah...so much fun! espeically, since the groups are big, but still small enough that you actually make a differencfe...grouped with a guy from scotland last night, and he had his first Scenario with me, and that sold the game completely on him....

Also, there's nothing quite like it, when you finally get the last blow in on that other toon who's been after you for a while and he goes down, or you can see your heals is keeping the tank from dying, even though there are 4 others trying to beat the crap out of him...so much fun, and so damn intuitive...I think thats really whats making the game so fun..its very easy to understand, though hard to master of course..the trademark of all great games IMO...

Erm, no they haven't.  As the Yahoo story points out (and is evident in the official thread to which you linked), customers will not be banned for discussing the DRM in a civilised manner.  The Maxis developer seemed to be saying that uncivilised discussion will mean being banned from the forum.

I could be wrong, but that's the way I see it.

Download this last night from GamersGate but no time to play yet. Something new was that I was forced to sign up for 'Verified by Visa' in order to complete the purchase. I've purchased three other games from them in the past and this wasn't a requirement before. And to top it all off, all of the links back to the VbV site that explain the how and the why of it were broken.  mad

woah - be very sure it was legitimate, before you sign anything with your card then.. I've had a small trojan operate in my machine, whenever I used legitimate sites, it would make a pop-up window, that required re-typing all the codes on my code... I just clicked close on it, and the payment still worked...

Now, for some positive things.  There are many things in this game that are very creative.  Public quests are very cool and I like how you can kind of do them again and again to raise up an influence meter that allows you to get loot from a few different tiers.  However, if nobody is around to do one of these things, you are kind of screwed.  I helped out a couple of times with the first high elf one where you ultimately have to kill this big dragon thing.  I wanted to run it one more time, but nobody was around and we couldn't get it done. One very cool thing, though it isn't explained in the game at all, is that in the second stage of this quest, the more people you save, the more crossbow thingies they build.  You can then use these to help do damage on the dragon in the third stage.  I kind of just stumbled upon it while messing around.  When I was doing the PQs the first time or two, nobody seemed aware of this.  So, cool mechanic, but not so cool if nobody knows about it.

about PQ's - you dont actually NEED to other players to gain all the "ranks" and get your rewards - I do them all the time by myself - just do the starting part, "kill 120 ultharian warriors" and you'r done in a very short time :-)

At some point in your mid to late teens you'll notice that you run out of quests for your level, and that you would have to grind to continue. Remember that there are 3 entire zones which ALL have quests for your level! If you run out, just hop on over to the comparable area in another realm. So far I've gotten to rank 18 with just regular quests, PQs and RvR.

Damn, you'r a machine! lvl 18 already? :-D but thanks for the tip! lvl 12 is my highest, so, I'll get there in a week or two ;.)

Pros:

- Smooth launch
- PvP is actually fun
- Public quests
- PvE implemented
- RvR implemented
- Serviceable graphics, and DOES work in large-scale battles without bogging the comp down
- Lots and lots of different classes, that are actually different in feel and use
- 12 character slots on EACH server
- Awesome guild options

cons:
- very pvp oriented, its clearly there that the developement focus has been at
- not cutting edge graphics (obvious why, but some people would find that a con)
- global chat non-existant, or I'm a moron

eh...thats all the cons I can find.

I'm enjoying this a lot! 11 alts so far, ranging between levels 6 and 12 ;-) Community seems nice as well overall... The game actually works, as many others have stated, I dont like PvP in MMO's, but this? its just implemented so beautifully that its plan fun! everyone wants to pvp in this game, especially the scenarios (capture the flag, king of the hill and many more) are so damn fun to be in!

hope it helped

so, how many bought this one, and was blown away? I got mine last night, and wow!

weight was probably around 5 kgs, the casing was damn impressive, like a bookcover. Inside was two hardcover bound books, one the art book which is so damn nice and the other one is a graphic novel over the events leading to where the warhammer wolrd is right now. Also,it included a mousemat and a figurine for the warhammer fantasy battle game...great stuff!

I must say, the price is right for this game, its not really that expensive, and while its just extra trappings you get, I love it! its such a well-produced product that you just cant help go "wow" when you see it - even my GF was awed by it, although she thought I was a bit insane to be buying it :-D
