OP  1/27/14 1:48:32 AM#1

Played SWG from launch till NGE, and Tabula Rasa up until a few months prior to shut down. I enjoyed the player city aspect of SWG and the skill based leveling, but TR had the better combat IMO

 

Anyway my question is, is this game for someone like me? Or should I just pass on this one like the last 8 sadbox games to comes around?

I would say the game is closer to a SWG pre-NGE and Shadowbane combined rather than Tabula Rasa. 


Games:
Currently playing:Nothing
Will play: Darkfall: Unholy Wars
Past games:
Guild Wars 2 - Xpiher Duminous
Xpiher's GW2
GW 1 - Xpiher Duminous
Darkfall - Xpiher Duminous (NA) retired

Shadowbane had the best free form player political system to date. However, it was buggy. But if you didn't like PvP or didn't want it to be a focal point (end game) you wouldn't like that game. I would make the same statement about The Repopulation; however, it seems to me that a lot of the PvErs that are attracted to this game like the way missions are set up and aren't too torn up about potential forced PvP (faction vs faction contested areas) or forced PvP (nation cities areas) being most of the map.

The problem with Shadowbane was spending weeks building up a city only to watch it get destroyed overnight. People left in droves when they couldn't stomach that. I wonder if the city seige system is going to be anything like Darkfall Online. If it is, I don't want any part of that mess.

This article describes how sieging will work ... it's not something you can do overnight :)

You should absolutely give it a shot.  I am loving it in its current state and every day is a fix and an addition to bring it one step,closer to beta and then live.  I have all those old SWG feelings coming back to me.

 I adored both games as well, my top 2 MMO's. I hope The Repopulation will be my next longtime mmo.

Its free to try and I fully intend to. Though if it is as fully PvP centric as being said ill only be a tourist

TR was the best and yet most broken game I've ever played.

I mean it went from being a high-fantasy game to Sci-Fi shooter game in less than a year - and it showed. 

IMO the original game would have survived longer - yes it was really strange but it was what the original designers intended TR to be - the space shooter we got was a panic move to appeal to the masses - it failed none the less.

Original TR vs what we got:
