Interesting. But I am not sure what will keep this game from becoming nothing more than a spawn camping gank fest where nothing matters other than killing and looting the other guy and allow it to live up to a sand boxes real potential. Open PVP with full loot has been the death sentence for one too many games. I am still waiting on a sand box outside of EVE (which was made to reward the worst in you) that can survive contact with its player base.

EDIT:  Just watched the videos on the site.  Sounds intriguing.  I didn't even know it existed until today.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

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?

Thanks god not everyone tries to catter to mass market.

True but there's a reason why free for all PVP isn't done much anymore and most fans of the old SWG aren't looking for that.

Currently Playing: Star Wars The Old Republic

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.

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

 Nope never PVP'd in EVE......all I did was mine, I played for  about 3 years till my friend joined Goonsquad.

Had my own corp and never was war dec'd either.....

Had allot of low friends in even lower places.

I dont know what most of the fans are looking for but I know thats not for me. I give this guy credit for his dedication to the project and his ability to make some really kick ass videos that had me sucked in. He almost got me to loosen that death grip on my wallet..right up until the FFA full loot PvP. Maybe the next game.

You can turn off the music and listen to the video..I dont know if anyone brought that up yet.

Too bad, because the videos really got me hooked.

 

Ill stick to veers elite and the other one I'm playing.

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 also agree.  I played SWG from Day 2 (Day 1 the servers barely ran lol) and i seen what Perma death did to my friends who played.  It sounds good however in the MMO world it does not work unless you want only a few thousand players at best.  Your Average MMO player will not play these type of games.

Same here, day 1 vet (yes I actually managed to log on for a short bit) and Defiance doesn't look interesting at all.

For SWG folks Defiance surely isn't all that interesting.  Divergence, however, is what they're talking about here and if it weren't for the whole ffa pvp nonsense it looked interesting, to me.

Shroud of the Avatar, now that game is the one I am watching closely to bring some of that real open world gameplay feel.

Just in case people don't know, SWG was never hardcore.  Yes, it was a sandbox with some cool features.  There was no forced pvp.  There was even themepark features. /gasp  In fact, they were officially called themeparks. 

 

Divergence is a hardcore, FFA pvp, with chance of permadeath MMO.  Not many of the SWG refugees are in to this.  So don't expect them to be all over this game, if it even releases.

Hello,

so you say Star Wars Galaxies? That was a great game, does Divergence have some sort of space ships simulation too or is it ground gameplay only? I will keep this on ""my radar"" ;)

Cheers

I'm not an awesome pvper, I tend to be average at it. I like crafting stuff to be an actual help to my side. There is no way I can get into a game where I can get ganked while waiting to sell an item to a person. Why not set up crafters with a few friends? Have a few gank buddies hide a bit away, get a crafter to bring some goods you want to 'buy', then take them off his corpse? Sorry, total free for all anything goes pvp is a bit much for people who aren't hardcore pvper's. We lose too much being killed by some jerkoff kid who just wants to mess with someone. They just get off on the power they feel ruining a few days work for someone. It's not immersion, it's not hardcore, it tends to revert backto seventh grade cruelty. 'Cause I can' attitudes wreck it for me, and I bet for others too.
