Everyone on these forums talking about how boring and the same all the AAA mmorpgs are, talking about sandbox games and the need of  a good sandbox..

 

Now this indie company making new SWG sandbox of 2014 and none is talking about it? what is wrong here?

 

Dont you like the SCFI settings of the repopulation?

Didn't you read features lists of this game?

Or you do think that this game needs to have more or better marketing ?

Why are you not hyped about this game?

 

Keep buying games like eso and AA or wildstar while this project with blow away those generetic mmorpgs...

 

first of all this game cannot be a AAA game.. cause its not a company we know and 2nd the quailty of the game does not even meet the standard.. or even close to AAA need..

Found this and it amused me:

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AAA_(game_industry)

"In the video game industryAAA (pronounced "triple A") is a classification term used for games with the highest development budgets and levels of promotion"

Since when is promotion equal to quality :)

 

Personally i think the term AAA is used to lightly these days ... in my opinion they should be and are rare.

I doubt the game even has a 'partially' playable alpha at the moment, so i really doubt anyone has. Once they manage to get the game to a stage where it has a working Beta version, then perhaps we'll be able to judge how well, or not, they have managed to implement the things they claim to be able to do. The game is pretty much an 'indie' title though, not a AAA game, but maybe by the time they manage to finish it, if they ever do, they will be a bit more well known. AAA though kind of assumes they have already released a popular game and have a solid history of making games, its a bit like a credit rating

I was asking if he played it because its currently in closed alpha 3 and going as smooth as a real alpha can be expected.

Every single MMO since 2010 has been claimed to be a sandbox game, yea most of them flopped. THis game has a very, god damn, old engine. And it looks just like all the other failed indie SciFi MMOs how is this different?

OP  8/27/14 5:49:33 PM#107

yes i played the game only for 2 hours tho.. it was an a friends account.. 

 

but ive been in alot  others beta's and encountered more buggs during 2 hours then during my time in alpha..

 

Alot of people that are not involved with this game or repop forum are having their fail assumptions about nichy companies.. and to some degree i actually argee about those statements..

 

But if you take some time to read  the info on the website and on their forum you will see that  the crew of the repopulation are 1:1 communitation on daily basis so if you any questions ask them..

 

This is not some nichy company like divergence online for example.. which is being runned by 1 person.. 

 

this is  a developers team with good knowhow about succesfull sandbox elemants of past games..

 

besides that they already have a working game(alpha stage)

Why am i not hyped about this?

Well simply because of my track record with indie games and quality has been very awful.

I have my eye on it for sure but can't get hyped about it till i get a chance to play the game.

You could also be in-game day -1 or before, if you back the game some and get a couple head start days ;)

It's another (yawn) open world, gank- and grief- fest.  What's there to get excited about?

This may come as a shock, but that's not of interest to a lot of people.

Why game designers severly limit their potential customer base is baffling.

Black Desert looks way better

Not to go off topic, but I can't wait for black desert as well lol.

Me too, I'm more interested in Black Desert than the Repopulation. Sci-Fi doesn't interest me at all for an Mmo. I'd rather wait to see when a game is close to release and decide to try it out though. I've been burned too many times to get excited for an upcoming mmo's these days, so I don't see me buying into anything until it's close to release or been out a few months with reviews on it. Too many mmo's have came out over a bit more than a decade that haven't lived up to the hype so I don't pay attention to hype anymore, it leads to disappointment. I'm not a fan of Free to play games either, so that gives any mmo that is Free to Play a negative for me in wanting to try it out too. On a side note, I'm not a big fan of Kickstarter projects, as I've not seen one Mmo that has came out from a Kickstarter funding to become successful. I did however fund one project from a well known person who had a successful mmo already and knows how to create one that could possibly be as successful.

Because it is another low production quality, Forced PvP game. 

 

What you need to understand is people want a high production quality...meaning decent graphics, nice art style, great gameplay with great animations and little issues.  The things that make Triple-A Themeparks fun to play.  But here's the kicker,,,,,they also don;t want to be forced to have to PvP.  Non-Consensual PvP will always play second fiddle to good PvE.  Oh and also we want nice action and a meaningful progression.  This notion that everything must be crafted by the player is wrong.  Dropped loot is and will always be better.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

There is no such thing as "no forced PvP" in multiplayer game where there are PLAYERS. Single player games are for that. You PvP vs players in MMO's all the time, either through combat, trading, wealth, crafting, roleplaying, recruiting, achieving, performing vs other players with your role in raid and so forth.

So, one last time the moment you step inside a MULTIPLAYER game there is no such thing as "NO PVP"

To answer OP question, there is no hype cuz probably people are fed up and exhausted on waiting for X game to come. They rather be busy, enjoying what's available. When the product comes on shelf and is fully tested and successful then it will gain hype. I personally, despite how much I love the concept of the game design behind it, the moment I saw the budget it started with I lost interest. Maeby now it's bigger, but it's still far from AAA product. Again, budget is not definite requirement for amazing MMORPG, cuz I've seen what MMORPG's can do with low budgets.

And what exactly is a dropped loot game?    It is simply one long, endless, solo dungeon run, thats what it is.  Is there crafting in your dropped loot game?   What do crafters make ? potions?   Is there an economy?  What is there to do besides follow the train of  loot droppers?

 

Sorry if you don't like crafting,  but at least it rquires some decision making in a game.   What decisions do you make in a loot drop game?  Do I kill monster X or monster Y?   Thats about it.   Its like playing pokemon or something .   Run around killing things and collecting nice shiny armor.   Kids game.

 

If that kinda game floats your boat, good on you.   Frankly, I have played Diablo and I am done with that type of game.   Even Non- consensual PvP is a better game than the loot drop game.

The simple truth is that sand boxes are niche and AA is a sandbox at its heart. People are playing the game and expecting a long term themepark game, but that's just not going to be the case. My bet would be the pop is going to seltzer down to about 300k of so and the fame is going to follow a similar pattern to eve.

rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW (10000 hrs on main mage)> oblivion > LOTR (600 runemaster/Hunter) > Rift (230 hours mage) > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(1000 elementalist), Wildstar

Now playing GW2, AOW 3, ESO, LOTR

Gaming should be about fun, not gender equality.

Triple A usually refers to the budget and as OP admitted this game is made by an indy company and as such, unless that indy company is very well funded, this is not a AAA game. And that is why I am not so hyped about this game because developing a solid MMO cost ALOT of money.

So if this game has a budget of atleast 50 million dollars, then I don't think it will be any better than say Darkfall.

Crafting does not automatically make it an 'adult' game. I have yet to see an MMO crafting system which requires intelligence, usually it is just a different type of grind than killing mobs, although more boring.

Would there come a game with a crafting system which actually requires advanced thought, like chess or tetris, then I would concede that it is a more adult game. However Repopulation has not shown any signs of such.
