Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

The fact that this game will be a one off payment, in order to keep the kids/ trolls out, is a big seller to me. Unless it launches in a mess, which I am thinking it won't tbh, I wil be picking it up. As long as they havent lied about it being a pay to win game I am cool with the shop in it in this case- it's not a mmorpg in my eyes so different rules apply for me.

Hmmm, the title makes no sense because in your post you quote that there is, in fact, a cash (micro-transaction) shop.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

I don't like B2P MMOGs.

 

Give me a good P2P game or a flexable westren F2P (EQIIX LOTRO).

So did I, I don't see where the 'suprise' is coming from.

I entirely grasp the concept and purpose of beta.

Seems others don't *chuckle*

Ehh what? also if you don't want kids in your game stop playing video games? even today it is still a bit awkward to see a 30 or 40 year old playing video games but can't be said the same about the kids.

I am obviously talking about the extremely young and/ or trollish demographic that haunts the F2P games because there is no cost of entry, but I think you know that.

Also, the average gamer age these days is around 32, so the fact that you find it 'awkward' is obviously just your personal issue.

 I've tried many free to play games and still play Lord of the Rings and DDO I've certainly found no young and trollish people in Lotro although there were a few in DDO at the start but that quickly died down . All in all I've found theres just as many people with bad attitudes in pay to play games as free to play ones and when it comes to World of Warcraft a far higher percentage of its players seam to have an attitude problem . I'm not sure what the average age of a gamer is these days but I would think your placeing it a little high .

That aside I think buy to play would be a good thing for many mmos that incuding this one . In fact several people were making the same arguement about DC Universe Online in another thread .

No what i find awkward is to play a video game and not expect to see any kids.

Thats obviously not what you said, but whatever.

This thread is about DoF being B2P, not your need for an argument. Please stop trying to derail.

Q: When will Dawn of Fantasy be released?
A:
 Dawn of Fantasy will be released on September 6, 2011 for North America and September 9, 2011 for Europe.

Q: How will Dawn of Fantasy be distributed?
A:
 Dawn of Fantasy will be available at most major gaming retail stores. It will also likely be available via digital download.

Q: How much will Dawn of Fantasy cost?
A:
 No specifics have been released, but the price will be comparable to that of other current PC RTS titles.

Q: Will there be a monthly fee?
A:
 Nope. After the initial purchase, you can play Dawn of Fantasy online free of charge without having to pay a monthly subscription fee.

Q: How will post-release DLC (downloadable content) work?
A:
 DLC will be available via our site and Reverie Online, and will allow players to purchase additional content in the form of expansions, quest packs, and new units and items in exchange for a small fee or in-game Influence points.

 

going by this, im going to assume its price will be 20-40bucks USD like most games are (i cant see this game being 60++)

i dislike the DLC statement though, i dont really agree with DLC being priced. as most of it is really pointless and worthless garbage that should be put in an expansion pack(or later does become so). but game seems interesting.. kind of a 24/7 Stronghold game which is rare as most games are going CoD routes X_X or just out right suck

Wtf ?? I'm 54 and have been playing Video games since they were invented , early 70's I believe ... so yeah the fact you find 30 - 40 year olds playing  Video games awkward is a little strange are you ageist ?

What happened to fun and innovative mmo's?

9/30/11 2:47:05 PM#16

This game is very very MMO lite. Main portion is that your online game is persistent but your player interaction is mostly chat based. Last I checked release was the 26th or so of this month and it was going for $29.99. This game is unique but still needs quite a bit for it to be called MMO in my opinion. Mainly due to your player interaction being pvp which is done with a click of a button and atm is only 1 on 1. You also do not see other players in the world.

One thing I would warn about is that the game does have potential, but it also has potential to be PTW in the pvp aspect depending on what is released in the shop. It was also VERY buggy towards the end of beta. Yes, beta is to fix bugs. It is also safe to say that when you get close to the end of beta that most of those bugs should be fixed. In this case they were not.

Please note this is mostly personal opinion so take it with a grain of salt. I would highly recommend waiting for a demo before trying it before you put your money down.
