OP  10/06/12 7:35:18 AM#1

Been trying to find something to while away a few hours on and this caught my eye, but it sounds a bit heavy.

Two gamemodes; hardcore and normal, both playing on the same server. HC players can get the whole 'phat lewt' thing going on with rare pickups but, if they die then the character dies and they have to start over. Normal players don't get the great loot but if they die they only get a fixed lockout before respawning (where they died, apparently, which is worrying) after a fixed time period. Currently this is 24 hours. You died, come back tomorrow?

And either way, you'll loose pretty much everything worth having because it's full loot?

I'm getting too old for this...

Well i don't like full loot games... but.. thre is a market for such games and is good they do exist, there is people that do like playing like that, so i am very happy that the full loot and even permadeath crowd is finally getting some games with it.

I don't like it as i said but just mean i might not play the game, but there must be games for all tastes and sizes in my opinion.

Maybe you can have more than one character per server. I hope so.

Although I love the ideals behind this game (including the "lock out" and FFA) I cannot bear to see another "pay us to Alpha test our game" bullshit move.

-Back in the day folks were PAID to Alpha/Beta test... Then it became free labor...Now everyne wants you to pay, to TEST their game. And this results in very bad beta testers who generally are there to "play the game"-not to "test". And why should they "test" when they are paying???

I can handle the looting others like we had in UO, but being locked out for 24 hours? No thanks.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

24 hour lockout is a way they will be making money,CS has item you can buy to instant respawn.Think i'm going to wait for the other zombie game to release.

Yeah but its like a "semi" permadeath. You have 5 toons so that gives you 5 deaths within that a.lloted time /per day.

I like the system as it will make players far more careful and less likely to act foolishly- Might make for a better community that works together.

 Yup you get 5 character slots according to the interview. But have to say this is just a copy of Dayz so nothing original here tbh.

This is why 'old school' gamers can't have nice things.

 

Just can't agree on which parts of the 'good ol' games'  were good.   When someone tries something like the old days, they get complaints instead of money. 

 

 

If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

I know exactly what you mean. However, at least they give you like 50% off of the "regular" price. I hate the fact that games have the pay to beta at all but at least this one gives some sort of benefit other than being able to play their game early.

I don't remember any of the "good ol' games" having permadeath or a 24 hour lockout if you died.  So neither one of these were taken from the "good ol' games."  I am interested to know their thinking behind the 24 hour lockout.

This was in development BEFORE DayZ, and besides having zombies in it, really doesn't play much like it. So yeah... you're pretty much completely wrong.

That's been called into question, though....

Full loot PvP is something some people want, and have wanted for a while, but the option of either permadeath or being locked out of the game for 24h if you die sound a little bit too heavy handed, specially when it's an online game and you can easily die for things that can't be avoided and are out of your control (a connection problem, for example) or just because someone decides to play an arsehole (I can tell the goon squad is going to have lots of fun if it launches with this system, for example).

What can men do against such reckless hate?
