1. Darkfall is an open world sandbox, not an arena.

 

No.

Dosen't matter how many time you say it It's still big NO

 

Wow, that was an amazingly well thought out rebuttal....

 

Look what UO,EVE,Ryzom,AC,Wurm,SWG have and then compare those features to Darkfall, therer is no need to explain it any futher.

You mean games which offered the same/similar core mechanics but where better fleshed out, amazing. Guess that must make it an arena game.. except no that's complete derp isn't it.

 

With that statment I know you haven't played anyone of the games I sead, nice fail there.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

Again another amazing rebuttal there. You could have tried to point out the core mechanics are vastly different in them, or that it wasn't an issue about them being more fleshed out.

 

But no, why not go for three pointless responses, you've chalked up two already anyway.

Everyone has their own definition of sandbox.

I go with:

Can i build stuff where i want in the way that i want to?

Can i shape the terrain?

Is it a player ran world?

etc.

Basiclly, once it gets too far from minecraft, its not a sandbox for me.

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

True to an extent, but it really depends on whether you are using the word within the context of the specific genre or not. If we apply the overarching word across the entire gaming spectrum then it is questionable as to whether any mmos are actually sandboxes or not.

 

Within the genre though, there tends to be a general consensus as to what it means, although as is quite clearly seen here, not everyone agrees lol!

Or fish.

 

No open pvp in SWG or territory control, or resource control, or player pirates, haulers, bodyguards.

 

Guess both of them are themeparks lulz.

DFO is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for the masses.

 

With that said, IMO DFO came closes to nirvana of any game I have ever played, tho played is not the right word... experienced is probably a far better adjective to use =p

So you found yourself a new word "rebuttal" to fuel your argument and still you haven't posted one single thread of  straw why Darkfall is in the same sandbox classroom as SWG,EVE,UO,AC,Ryzom,Wurm.

Can you you please post why Darkfall is fit in the same classroom or are you gonna write rebuttal to all my my post? I really hope so beacuse if you do then I know Darkfall is not a sandbox game.

Just beacuse a game had FFA PVP dosen't automaticly lable it sandbox even you have to agree with this.

A true sandbox game must have an equal % of PVE and PVP, none of em can have more, in Darkfall case you have more PVP than PVE hence why it's labled PVP arena.

You can babble how much you like why Darkfall is a sandbox game when in reality it is only a PVP game with little PVE.

You can use whatever fancy words you like and twist and bend your opinion but you are still wrong in anyway.

As I sead check the other games and then come back to me and say the same thing.

But sadly I think you are one of the WoW generation and you have no clue what most of the games were in the old days and you still brickwall argument that you are right, good for you I guess, but sadly you are misstaken.

It's ridiculous to call df a sandbox
If we take uo as the ultimate sandbox
And swtor as the ultimate themepark

Df has way more in common with uo than it does swtor.

Or if you take a game just in the themepark side, say daoc.
And a game just in the sandbox side, say ac.

It still has slightly more in common with ac.

I can only tell how i played,close all chats and only followed vicinity chat and it was like DayZ goes MMORPG.

10+ adventuring experience.

 i know the pain of having our favorite game changed "for a more broader appeal ". the problem is many sandboxers wants a fantasy EvE and see in darkfall the potential to become one.

I`m one of those sandboxer that want some security for the new players. The anarchy players was proven wrong 15 years ago in UO.

 

In early UO players were suppose to police themselves, but it fell flat on the face. 80 % of the playerbase were murderers, 19 % new players and 1 % was anti pks. It was no penalty for being a murderer and they could walk into any town. This showed the comunity that players can never police themselves and something had to be done. UO took a drastic approach and implementet statloss for murderers. After statloss murderers became famous and respected daredevils. They risked their char for their playstyle.

 

In Darkfall we just killed our alt char when we had some murdercounts. We could kill the same crafter in a capital city every 10 minutes with no penaltys at all. It was the worst alignment ever made and Darkfall was bound to fail. Murderers in darkfall don`t risk anything and got no respect as they are just the average player.

 

In UO we had guards to protect players in a city. They had a plutonium halberd of doom and would insta kill you the second you did anything wrong. Why any PK would complain over Darkfalls weak towers is beyond my understanding. There should be a penalty for killing new players in a newbie area, because in darkfall there is enough space to kill players without penalty.

 

You can kill a new players and take a murdercount or you can man up and try to kill a decent player in the lawless area. Only shit players would defend their right to kill new players as they please.

Good post and I agree. But like you say aventurine's allignment system is practically non existant, and they never committed to making it work in 3 years. I'm pretty sure they've changed their mind since the original design to be completely FFA with a bit of noob protection. Darkfall will never be about red/pk vs blue/anti, or even race vs race it will remain practically lawless, mark my words. ;(

It has PVP but the game is not focused on it as a main feature like Darkfall is yet It is there for those who loves it.

Darkfall is not centered around PvE but it's there for those who love it. Guess it's a sanbox after all then..?

Sorry but you inventing some random PvE vs PvP percentage qualification does not make your private definitions universal.

disagree, as DFO doesnt appear to have any appreciable PVE associated with it, it does however appear to be a PvP based Themepark, which does put it into a fairly narrow band of 'niche' if thats possible, one thing i would definitely not class DF;UW as though, is a sandbox game, it misses too many categories to be classed as one, nor do i think it is meant to be one.

Uh, if DF doesn't have appreciable PvE, then what have I been doing with most of my time in Darkfall for the last 3 years? (hint, it's PvE).

And it's not anything resembling a themepark. There's no linear path through the game, no locked in classes that dictate your skills and what you can wear, no zones, no instances, no invisible walls. I don't think people know what a themepark is anymore.

Wurm has equal PVP and PVE, PVP is just that PVP, killing someone dosent take much programing or braincells to understand  but program and make different features for PVE that takes a long time.

I have no idea why I really respond to your flawed post but you just seem to be trolling or trying to make a good post so you can lean back in your chair and say yeah I got him there.

I think people are a bit confused about the definition of a themepark and a sandbox. A sandbox is a game that allows you to go anywhere in the game and challenges you to explore without a set path. A themepark is waiting in line with hundreds (if not thousands) for your turn at a quest, or mob, that an NPC told you to kill. 

 

This is imo only a small slice of the sandbox pie. The "correct definition" to me is so much more than just how questing or the lack of it works in the game. To me it's in the name "sandbox" - as crazy as it might sound. What do you do at a sandbox? You build and destroy. A game should have a great deal of overall freedom on top of being able to shape the world somehow, to be a sandbox, for me at least as a customer.

 

Skyrim would be pretty close if there were a way to impact the world permanently in some major ways outside of quests and triggered events, like burn a town to the ground, and build your own house anywhere you want as long as the ground can support it, stuff like that. Also complete random events like bandits attacking towns, or maybe a troll/giant and so on, something else than just dragons, without you having to pull it to the town. More random and interactive world.
