You mean a system for generating money via repeated ganking? Or to make it that some of dropped stuff breaks? Since just removing durability would not work, people usually pvp with min dura stuff anyway. Not really applicable I am afraid.

If you cannot get past all your posessions being lootable then Darkfall just is not for you.

The entire game was not built around full loot, full loot is a feature thats it.  Its either on or off, neither of which breaks the game.

Stop being so obtuse!  Tradeskills,resources,economy and crafting would be quickly rendered useless without full loot. As you only have one character, there would be no demand once characters were geared,  I'm not sure why you insist on talking about things you clearly have NO understanding of.

This is a completely inaccurate statement.  I'm assuming you haven't played the game?

Darkfall is about risk vs. reward.  For the first 6 months I played the game every time I got jumped at a mob spawn or had a random pvp encounter my hands would shake, my blood pressure would sky rocket, my face would turn red, I'd even stop breathing.  No other game has come close to that level of excitement for me and it is all based around the idea of full loot.

If there is no risk, you don't care when you die, you don't care when you win, and it becomes an MMOFPS instead of an MMORPG.  Darkfall is about PvP (all shapes and sizes), politics, and risk vs. reward.  These 3 things are all intertwined intimately.

if there were a non full loot server and a full loot server, wouldnt the people who want the game full loot play on one and the people who dont play on the other?

 

and wouldnt that mean that everyone is happy?

 

especially Aventurine who lets be honest could probably use the extra funds of a few thousand subscriptions?

 

what is the real motivation for having there be multiple servers with varying rule-sets?  to force your own way of play on others who might like a different game?  to somehow feel superior over "ganking jackasses" or "no skill carebears"? (not to mention the many many  people like myself who consider ourselves somewhere in the middle?)

 

if AV makes more money because more people play the game and that means more development and expansions and patches and advertising and SUCCESS, wouldnt that be good for everyone regardless of how they want to play the game?

 

thanks for reading and letting me indulge in a rhetorical moment :)

I thought I would hate full loot when I first played DF... I actually ended up liking it.

 

It made you think ahead and plan before doing things.

 

If I was going out with my clan or was going to war to steal a city... I would fully suit up... I had to.

 

If I was just going to grind out some weapon skills and pick up some gold if I make it back to a bank.. I might go out with minimal gear.

Oh, I simply meant a system that might allow you to keep an item that was insured if killed. This item would not show up under the players tombstone and would ether spawn in the players bank or with the player when they respawn.

The cost for insuring the item would be high enough to question whether you want to insure it or risk it. I feel more players will take the risk, rather then lose gold on insuring stuff.

This could also be perhaps limited to certain types of items and they could not be traded while being insured. You would have to remove the insurance with no refund of your gold.

I wrote my first response with {/sarcasm on}  but upon reading what Sicc wrote...you know. He is right.  SO, Im NOT in any way shape or form going to play DF2.  Not even gonna do a trial.  It is not my game, I dont have the skills or reflexes for it.  I commend those who do. I honestly hope DF2 is all you hope it to be.  I hope yall have fun gang raping each other ( little more sarcasm, cant help myself) till your fingers bleed. Seriously, honestly I do. Every player type deserves their game.  I hope DF2 is all of yours, the fans of gang raping (lol sorry) game to end all games.

I'm not sure what the game even offers other than FFA PVP.  That's not an attack, I just don't know enough about the game.  FFA PVP is a deal breaker on its own for me, so I never looked into the game.

If you want to walk around in the super badass armor or with tons of coin on your person, then you better be ready to deal with the aftermath of losing it. That risk vs reward plays a HUGE part in any good sandbox.

 

Having said that, the next major part of any good sandbox is the community and aligning yourself with others. That FFA Full Loot has a lot more purpose behind it when you're looting a sworn enemy.

 

In themeparks you send your fallen foe to the grave, he incurs a minor silver penalty in repairs at best, but he's really no worse for the wear other than maybe a bruised ego. In sandbox games with looting it's that much more exciting and brings a whole new meaning to guilds/corps and the alliances/enemies that develop as a result.

Yeah, you will see little clans of thieves who go around looking for that person who travels alone in full armor.  Stalking them until they are far enough away from civilization to be helped. 

 

Fun stuff really, makes you think twice about how you travel or who you travel with.

It is not necessarily FFA pvp, there are consequences to attacking anyone you want.

 

Like any other game there is a form of leveling up just in this game leveling up is just becoming better at skills. 

 

When I played the most fun I had was when I joined a clan.  We started off joining an alliance.  My clan was a small 10-20 player clan that acted as guerrilla warfare. 

 

We would attack a city or village to try to draw an opposing alliances members to that city and leave our target less defended.

 

We also would pick off stragglers from the other clans that were not running in large enough packs when they tried to defend the actual city we were stealing.

 

A good portion of the time we did not do Clan Vs Clan Pvp we went out as a group farming for tradeskill items, money, armor, or just to skill up.  The PvE in the game was annoying at first because it seemed difficult to loot the mobs before they respawned so going in as groups was very beneficial... plus people could steal loot from your kills.

 

In essence pve is similar to other games where you do PvE to level up or farm stuff.  More difficult mobs offered higher rewards.

 

The game is much more fun than a FFA PvP game or a regular FPS game there is a lot more involved.  Losing all your loot just really adds to the game really.

I think a lot of people who have little or no experience with DF have a lot of misunderstandings about the game and the FFA full loot PvP thing.

If you were to take another game, for example WoW, where you spend tons of time raiding, etc to get really amazing gear, and they suddenly turned it into a Full Loot PvP game.... yes it would be absolute crap.

But thats not what DF is. The entire game is designed around losing gear. If you dont lose it to other players, its going to break eventually anyway.

Its not as if people run around in DF with full sets of uber gear and it sthe only gear they have and it completely screws them if they lose it. After playing the game for a couple of weeks you will literally have BAGS of gear in your bank. After playing about 2 months I had hundreds of spare weapons, various pieces of armor, consumables, etc sitting in my bank between farming mobs, crafting, and PvPing.

As someone else mentioned, theres a pretty basic rule to follow. Dont take what you cant afford to lose. What that means is, dont go out in your best gear when you dont have anything else good to replace it. Take some mid-grade gear, go farm a bit for some new gear, or get crafting mats and make more, then go out in your good stuff.

The people youll see running around in "good" gear do it because they can afford to lose it because theyve invested tons of time in building up their reserves, getting their crafting up to make it, or making enough money to buy it. But in all honesty, that "good" gear isnt that much better than stuff that is a lot easier to get. Youll be able to hit a little harder and take a little more damage, but if you suck at the game youre goin to die and lose your gear regardless of how good it is. At the same time, good players can run around in crap gear and farm people for their good stuff.

If you get to a point where yourse really desperate for gear, go out in some of the worst stuff you have, find a large battle going on between other people, hide, and wait. Corpses get left behind constantly in the heat of battle and if youre quick you can get in, loot the corpses for some gear, and get back out before anyone notices youre there.

One way to do it would be to have a random chance of equipped item(s) being lootable upon death, just like in Lineage. But that would mean a complete redesign of crafting and itemization of the game. It would also bring DF closer to the gear-grind type of game, which is a bad thing imho.

The best approach to FFA loot is to have zones of decreasing safety, much like EVE does. This way players that are not familiar with the genre or that don't feel like risking too much have a relatively safe spot to play in, while those daring enough to venture farther out may do so at their own risk and for increased rewards.

If AV are smart this time, they'll probably have something similar implemented in DF:UW

Wish granted.  If you are close to a city you can run to the city for protection.  If you are far from the city you are at a higher risk depending on how far away you are.

well, the protection was only valid for the NPC cities, the player cities were basically defenseless since the towers didn't do any real damage and the walls didn't stop raiders from entering.

They stated that walls will be more difficult to get over in DF:UW.

 

But he asked for an area of more protection... the starting cities always acted this way.  You move out further you find better loot... just as he wanted... and its riskier.. just as he wanted.

Full loot is not a big deal, dont go so emo about it and give it a try!

I know that sometimes it get really annoying, if you knew how many times it happened to me to get ganked just when I was about to go back to the bank to store my loot and just said, "ok, lets do ONE last mob spawn..". It made me mad, completelly mad. This game can make me rage for real.

On the other side, every fight you win its a great excitement, I still remember the adrenaline of going back to the bank after my first fights won, hurrying to bank my precious loot.. *-*

I dont know if you can understand the feeling if you never played a game like this (wich maybe only UO can compare to actually..), but theres a HUGE difference between Darkfall and a game where you die like "oh, i died.. whatever.." or any kill is "just another kill.."  - where death means nothing.

If you have cardiac problems just play WoW or some of its clones, if you're up for some sweet adrenaline rushes darkfall is for you.
