OP  9/22/13 6:58:32 AM#1

I'm having a blast after the new research update. Game is ripe for industry and market tycoons and generally things seem to pick up. There is a lot more activity in general chat too.

 

If you are looking for a nice MMO for grown-ups, you should try it out.

This game certainly is a gem. People don't know what they are missing out on.

I have played EVE, Ryzom, Entropia Universe and The Secret World quite a bit. I am thinking of giving this game a shot. I enjoyed EVE quite a lot, but got bored due to over-development-nerfing of my favorite ships.

 

I have noticed that in most of today's new games there are lots of time based achievements and items that are character bound and if you didn't start playing a game at a certain time, these things are no longer available to you. Does Perpetuum have very many non-tradeable or non-obtainable items/titles etc...?

It's shutdown? Their webpage still works but maybe that doesn't mean anything.

It isn't shut down, they're launching through steam soon ?

But from what I read about it they made an eve clone ( for ease of explaining the game model ) with boring pve and weak pvp. The devs put all their focus into pvp and the players didn't love it. The pve mostly quit and the obvious happened....when your sheep leave and the wolves don't like eating each other, they starve or look some place else to hunt.

Eves greatest success ( imo ) was getting the wolves to hunt each other. Something other games seem to really struggle with.

There's a saying about evolution and why we have two eyes and two ears but only one mouth. Clearly it didn't see the internet coming or it never would have given us ten fingers to type with.

I don't think it was much that the PVPers there were preying on the 'sheep', as much as once the PvE players leave the PVPers have to spend their play time doing the PVE stuff (crafting, mining, transporting) in order to have what they need for PVP. For example, the PVPers could have all the fun in the world blowing up fellow PvPers, but once the PvE players are gone, there is no one left to fuel their war machine for them. 

While I personally found Perpetuum to be a mediocre game at best (just my opinion, don't go ballistic on me), the devs have a far greater understanding of what makes for an engaging PVP-focused virtual world than some other devs do.

At least this game have some rly nice sandbox tools. You can change the landscape etc on some islands. Rly use the terrain to build cool stuff. And build walls to hold off offenders. Place becons to let you know if hostiles are coming etc. I also think the game has better PVP then EVE cause you can actually use the terrain to your advantage to dodge missiles etc. I don't like that the bots feels so small. You never get the feeling you control a big ass robot. And the graphics could be better as well. Even though they did upgrade them alittle a year or so ago. Still think the game can grow, and reach a new crowd. The next patch before steam is to make the newbie experience better, and get you to learn the game faster etc. So this one could bloom when it hits steam.

i think it was a year or two ago, when perpetuum first came up, there was a certain amount of hype surrounding it, (isn't there always!) and it didnt seem like a particularly bad game, just, everything about the game seemed to scream Eve clone, i think even the interface at the time was very similar. Fun for 5 minutes i think, i'm not sure what would have improved things, although i think a more 'mechwarrior online' kind of thing, would have been a lot more popular, or perhaps not, but at the time, there just wasn't enough there to hold me. But that was quite a while ago, and suddenly seeing the game being 'touted' was a bit of a surprise to say the least, but if the game is about to be launched on Steam then it does kind of make sense. Not sure it will make all that much difference though

Wasn't when Perpetuum first emerged it was around the time of the backlash of EVE players in regards to the ingame store and skills being purchasable?  Thought Perpetuum was long dead.

Perpetuum came out in 2010. There was no in-game store in EVE then. I also don't remember any talk, then or now, about skills being sold for real money in EVE.

That makes sense, I was just taking a wild guess based off a few posts. They did mention no pve players and no one building anything. It's too bad because the game looks really cool. I'd like to go around in an open world blowing shit up in a huge mech...but from everything ppl say it's not what I'd be expecting to play.

You can go around and blow shit up that people has built. From walls to stations. On the islands where you can terrafrom, you build what you want, however you want. It's pretty damn cool. Now I haven't played for a year or so. I stopped cause it had to few peeps playing it. But if it's booming again I might check it out once more. If you haven't tested it, I think you should.

Hehe, all this talking about it made me resub. First thing I noticed is that they remade research completely, and it's ALOT better now. So they sure are taking small good steps into making this game rly good. If they could only up the graphics some and make the bots feel like big ass bots and not like small ants. :P

I gotta say I never knew this game existed, then I saw this thread about it so I checked it out. The game is pretty good, it's like mech eve, set up sorta the same way. Seems like a lot of skills and mechs to choose from for what you want to do as your class. I would recommend giving it a look, it has a 15 day trial. I just subbed : ) 10 beans a month.

Yeah, the actuall sub for the game is pretty cheap compared to other MMOs. Nice to see more peeps trying it. What the game needs the most is more population. So hope it will get it through steam at least.

The game taking place on such an alien world always (to me) gave it a complete lack of scale. Even the bipedal mechs felt like kid's toys more than giant machines of death (and this was before Pacific Rim came along and 'ruined' the scale of modern mech games).

It reminded me of driving my Turbo Hopper around the dirt pile in my back yard. Fun for a bit, but eventually the batteries die & interest is lost.

Or in other words, MECHS MUST BE STOMPIER!
