OP  3/28/13 1:37:07 AM#1

I keep seeing people posting on forums like this one and sites like swg emu who still haven't heard about this game yet and it's unforgivable. It's already underway and the videos are just spectacular, so I really want to see it complete! I think what's holding it back is that it has a lot of hype on it's listing here but not enough to get onto the front page.

Just go to video 2, watch the awesomness that starts about halfway through, then notice right at the end it's even called "The Star Wars Galaxies Refugees MMO".

I've watched this video and have been waiting for another game in which I can destroy prestine landscapes via my strip-mining enterprise.   This game needs more funding, I can't wait to dig up resources in an open mmo again.

Divergence sounds very SWG-ish, but I lost interest when I read about the forced PvP with corpse looting and "limited" perma-death. Why these smaller developers rely on this PvP model to make the core content of an MMO is beyond me. It ceretainly didn't work well with games like Xsyon or Mortal Online. Many more potential players ($$$) would be attracted with a consentual PvP model (such as a flagging system). I still wish them and interested playersluck, but I will not be contributing.

these games are pure vaporware.

 

 

we've heard it all throughout the years - but these games will other end up in the drawing board featuring a nice fancy video or become a total flop upon release.

Im a carebear....looting, perma death along with open pvp isn't my style.

Too bad, because the videos really got me hooked.

I was thinking the same thing. The only perma death in SWG was in the early days of the jedi grind and there was no looting corpses. Personally I'm looking forwad to the Repopulation.

I don't feel you should call yourself a carebear, because to me a carebear is one who needs the game to tell him/her what to do. The hardcore player playes the way he/she wants to play (obviously within the games rules) but it all has to be optional, else again developers tell the player how to play instead of the player making up their own minds.

Apart from that I do agree.

If..

Open PVP & Lootable Bodies

Open-PVP everywhere. No exceptions. If you don't like the way that alien is checking out your girl, put a bullet in his face. Just be prepapred to lose faction with the establishments bouncers who with enough ruckus may elect to toss your ass out.
Lootable Corpses. You won't have an inventory full of thousands of ridiculous objects. All objects have a mass equivalent and slow you down based on your physical ability to carry loads. Don't carry your valuables on you!
Limited Permanent-Death. The most controversial of the controversial. Cloning in Divergence is common but not guaranteed. You'll need clone insurance, a few clones in storage, to be within the sphere of a cloning beacon and a race which can actually clone in order to avoid starting over on your character after death. Death means something, and thus life means something. Dancers, don't despair. Most NPC and player towns have their own cloning spheres.

Would be optional it truly would be SANDBOX

the rest of the game sounds amazing....shame really about the above part.

Another indie sandbox makes the same mistake, open PvP and full loot. This is another title destined to face low population and money troubles as a result.

When will they learn?

I ddn't mean to say that I was a carebear, it's just that the free for all loot PVP aspect is going to be the biggest turnoff for old  SWG fans.

I AM a carebear.

When I played EVE that was the term for players  that didnt pvp.

I dont care about the name, its just a game.

If I'm going to pay to play a game it  will be one I WANT to play.  Spending the monthly fee isn't a big deal to me, the content and things that I LIKE in the game are, PVP  let alone FORCED PVP isnt one.  I can go play dozens of them now FOR FREE........

 

Good luck OP, let us know if you change your game plan some day, if so Ill be there for you.

Pretty crappy webpage, not a good first impression.  It plays background music, which is fine and all, until you go to watch a video and can't hear it because of the webpage song, lol.

 

:P

Yup, I believe the kids call this "total fail".

Naming all the races "homo" something is stupid.  Drop the "homo" part if it's all the same.

seems like one guy did everything so far, that is quite an accomplishment. Webpage is average but who cares.

I like the project and backed it, also it has a prototype unlike other KS projects which are vaporware written down in some hyped up paragraphs of text.

You have to carry valuables with you sometimes, and free for all pvp has too many gankers to make me want to go window shopping or go out harvesting rescources. If a game has a pvp flagging system, then I'd be willing to try corpse loots.

It is vaporware. Just selling those "trade secrets" he keeps attributing all of these amazing tech breakthroughs to would net him many millions of dollars. One man does not do that. Take a look at Euclidean for example.

 You know what´s "vaporware" ? That Camelot project.

Divergence has ACTUAL GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE, I guess you comprehend the difference.

You didn't PVP in EVE? You enjoyed the game...... for how long?

Cause if you don't PVP in EVE and still have for a longer period of time fun I would say you're pretty hardcore to survive in such a harsh universe. So doesn't that make you wonder who's really the carebear? the one caring for you to play a certain way, or playing the game the way you want it?

Sorry OP slighty
