Just curious if they have added 3rd person view? Only thing that keeps me from trying MO.

 

P.S

This is not a thread designed to debate which view (1st / 3rd) is better or whatever. I just want to know if MO (like DF) has added it yet.

 

Thanks in advance.

Nope, and they probably never will tbh.  Seems like a wierd thing to keep ya from even trying the game, but yeah, I wouldn't hold my breath.  Unless it's, like, of religious importance to you, I'd at least give the trial a shot... you get used to 1st person soon enough, and being locked into it really does add a little flavor to the game, though it took me awhile to realize it.  (note I'm not trying to say 1st is better, or right for every game; 1st/3rd debates grow tiresome way too quickly.)

The only luck I had today was to have you as my opponent.

it's very unlikely these games will ever have 3rd person mode. there's no benefit in waiting, either try them or skip them forever.

Some people just like actually seeing their characters while they play. I wont bother with it myself, but it's more of a nail in the coffin thing for me. By making it first person only, they've already alienated a bunch of people. Some people enjoy good graphics, some enjoy 3rd person, you can't really determine what makes or breaks a game for other people. If they actually enjoy games for certain reasons like 3rd person view or graphics, then that's that.

pretty much every single mmo out there has a 3rd person view. MO is the only one i can think of with that "oblivion like" first person view. i just wouldn't be the same game without it.

Thanks for the replies, looks like I'll skip it.

Of the many flaws MO has I beleive third person is not one of them. I personally got MO in the beginning simply because it was a FPV game. "reminded me of oblivion" though MO is worthless compared to elder scrolls games.   Though I wouldn't mind a option to look at yourself in mirrors or maybe a front view third person view so I can see my armor, or my general appearance. But third person would kill the thieves role. Do a little research before making post like this?

I fully agree.

I am one of the more outspoken critics of this "game" and the "company" that made it (well, are attempting to make it lol) yet I have always agreed with the FPV. I like it and agree that that is the one thing SV have done right (well, I think the graphics are quite good as well, actually)...

Ultima Online has 3rd person view, and playing a thief is a viable  option in the game. I don't see how it would kill the thieves role, if theiving was done properly.

Let em put a slave ring thru u're nose u're prob not going to like where they're taking you. Think.

Yeah, I would have joined this game when it went f2p if they were in 3rd person view.  1st gives me motion sickness.

Next time if they ask your name tell them "Your Overlord." There's nothing more satisfying than an Arby's employee repeatedly yelling over the munching masses, "Your Overlord's classic cheddar is up!!!"
