HOWEVER...the exact inverse is not true?

someone is claiming that people complain about sandbox features and I havent seen any such complaints 

I think he's referring to feedback on specific games or game types FFAPVP as an example... His point was about people getting the wrong idea about games based on feature lists and interpretations of them. Who in turn rail against said mechanics after discovering them or discovering how they effect the feature they picked a game up for.

In all fairness FFA is the ONLY sandbox feature I have ever heard anyone mention.

which is why that statement seemed really odd to me.

I'd agree it certainly is the main thing complained about when it comes to Sandboxes today. The second being community related issues, IE ganking, griefing, meta.. etc..

which of course is all related to FFA. which really isnt a requirement for Sandbox by any stretch

Somewhat yes, but even in a non-ffa game (SWG as an example), the community and how they treat each other plays the biggest factor on the state of a sandbox game, so it's all relative.The community drives the overall experience.

Edit- which really links back to my original reply to you.. The community is really the main detrimental or positive influence on the success of a sandbox game, mechanics are secondary to it.

here is the problem I am having with your comment.

I dont see what I highlight in yellow actually happening.

I dont see people jumping on forums complaining about sandbox features. I do see people complaining about themepark features but not sandbox ones.

More over, who gets disapointed about being able to build a house but not required to do so...that is silly

You kind of have to approach the above from a certain perspective. I highly doubt it's those who enjoy themepark features jumping on forums bemoaning those features, the people who are going to gravitate toward such topics are those who dislike them, or want something else. The other part of said perspective is that, those who like themepark features have little to complain about, so they're less likely to strike out at the other option, it's not in the way of their preference.

There's a lot of that for all game types not just sandboxes..

I really don't think it's hard to understand why companies find the sandbox to be less desirable on the business front. A themepark is all about content, stories and combat. These things are easily controlled. Sandboxes are about player to player relations. Something far less easy to control. Instead of relying on writing, design skill, and programming, you rely on players to create the incentive to log on or off. Where would you your millions on being a safer bet?

the position being argued here by others (if I understand it correctly) is that the masses really do not like Sandboxes they just are not aware that they dont like Sandboxes. They THINK they do which is why AAAs use the terms but in reality they find it boring.

 

Now I personally think that is hogwash...but at least its nice to get a position that sounds somewhat coherent for a change

I'd agree that's not really a strong argument. It's making assumptions based on likes or dislikes, which are usually guided by personal feelings on the topic. Many people really don't know what they like until they get it in a package that fits them.

no its not like that at all.

  • indies make games like UO
  • AAA games do not make games that UO  or even close for more than a decade.
  • If people didnt like those indie games or UO AAA companies would not be interested in making them happy.

 

that is how it is....deal with it.

I'm 46 years old, have a family, work full time, take care of many things....logged in and saw a long que, I shut the game down 5 seconds later.  No time to mess around with this, or spend my hard earned money looking at a que.  Sorry.

 

Well if you have a family you should be more than familiar with the term "that's the way the cookie crumbles". As it's something you have to explain to children on a regular basis. "that's just the way things are"...

Really hope archeage can live up to the hype that it is seeming to receive..

It was ruined in Korea. Too hyped.. but it just became an ordinary MMORPG.. 

When has anything lived up to "hype"? Hype is marketing... It's entire purpose is to inflate a products worth.

On a good note at least TRION is keeping these threads open, but I'm hoping they give the community an answer (well a more substantial answer than what Scapes gave). As a business, yes you need to make money, but don't introduce methods that will frustrate off a good portion of your customers, or at the very least run a high risk of pissing them off outright...

What really needs to change is the attitude of the buyer, they need to come to grips with what is being sold here.. They go on and on about the freebies that come along with it (items, credits, etc..) yet mislead themselves over what they're really paying for, the early access...

IN F2P this is the practice that takes the place of pre-ordering... IT's all about pushing early sales, and the best weight behind that is exclusive access.. Once that access is over, that's when it really shows what it was worth... As everything else is not exclusive... It will be leveraged later, as a means to make up for the lack of a box price on entry (starter packs).

yes, all bow down to XL for allowing us to pay to be guinea pigs

WHat do founders expect? The big fee was there because they knew people would pay it if it meant they could play. That's all it boiled down to. There was no other reason to pay for it.. I'd think everyone knew they'd offer this kind of thing at launch... Anyone who knew how F2P actually works anyway.

Adding more servers is a double edged sword. Sure, they can use them now, what about a month or two after launch, server merge.

Ya, this is a huge problem with this game. When other games lose enough players the devs can merge them onto servers and delete unnecessary ones. I think the problem with this game is you can't merge housing which is a huge portion of the title. And you also have that pesky problem with guilds being disrupted with a merge. They should have weathered the storm and held off, or found an alternate method for additional housing.

Don't hold Wildstar and SWTOR as examples.

ArcheAge is a free to play game from the start. I'm not so sure that they'll need to merge servers somewhere down the line.

That is funny - F2P? NOT!! If you want to be competitive in this game, you will need to play with your wallet and squeeze as much cash as you can down at Trion.

 

This is a classic bait and switch game.

Why must one want to be competitive? maybe they just want to play the game, even as a patron (which is how I'd prefer to play if I did), I really wouldn't give two ****s about being competitive.

My top 3 would be:

1. SWG (pre-cu)

2. AOC

3. ESO

I always just assume it's the same people but one day when it's slow at work I really want to go through the old threads from other games and see if it really is all the same people trying too hard to make new games seem much worse than they really are.

All this fake drama is just silly.

I'm sure you'll find a lot of crossover. Just thinking back a few years to TOR it is a lot of the same peeps still bashing every MMO that has come along. If you look at dates, many current accounts date back to some MMO's release. Essentially in my assumption, when they lost access to the account they did it with prior.

Okay indulge me... Whom is sat at this "big people table"?

Obviously Blizzard since no one really comes close to them.

LMAO. How quickly they forget or never experienced the launch of WoW.

Servers crashing, massive lag, bugs out the ass.... the list goes on. Some servers crashed for weeks. People received extensions of their free play time because of issues.

So NO, Blizzard isn't at the big boy table either.

WOW...you don't even have to think back that far... They had severe issues getting a simple hack and slash out the door, with over a decade to work on it.

too bad, because I really like the game, and will be playing regardless...but, make no mistake, TRION aint ready for a seat at the big people table.

WHo exactly is already sitting at the "big people table"? They all experience most of these issues at launch.

LIke the game or hate it doesn't matter.. there's no point behind your point..

    Yes ,  IMO ... it was still better and have played every dam MMO since UO to endgame and for me DAOC still overall best RvR experience and, Warhammer second  , altho there were times when War was really rockin that in those ,moments i would have put it ahead of DAOC

Why , give me some example why DaoC were better, you writing in rose colour glasses text, give me some facts what made that game better compare to modern ones.

It's subjective there are no facts to back up such an opinion, it's about preference...

I think this might be the first time a publisher has tried to blame DDOS. I can see all new launches blaming denial of service now. You can't prove otherwise and it takes a ton of heat off of them. Everyone feels sorry for the server that gets his with the DoS.

They're in heavy damage control spin mode. Just 21 hours ago they reiterated they were still under DDoS (not our fault - sympathy please). Just 40 minutes ago "currently checking into why a few of you are having login issues." One thing Trion is great at is PR and spin.

Nah not the first Carbine claimed the same during their headstart or launch (one of the two anyway).

Yep.. it's the age old just give them a taste, and their wallets will do the rest philosophy..

Actually OP, you are pretty much alone in thinking there really is any advantage to be won.

 

Well first people are naming answers to the OP's question so he's obviously not alone. Secondly, there are plenty of "pay for advantages" offered in F2p titles. It's kinda how they make their money. Xp pots, starter kits/packages, tiered gear, etc..etc..etc...I won't call it P2w, as that's to buzzy for my taste as a descriptor, they're very much advantages though. That's what creates the demand for it...

To those "almost certain" there is no DDOS attack. sounds to me like that's what you want the truth to be, regardless of what the actual truth is.
