no thanks

 

If Age Of Wushu is cute asian design then Archeage is extra cute asian design. Now obviously many people on this site must like extra cute asian design considering that Archeage was number one on the hype meter for ages and is now number two.

The hype meter can be easily swayed and rather worthless considering how few votes it takes to hit number 1.  AA hit 8.83 with only 50 votes in early 2011 and DF-UW has been 1 for months with only 482 to date.  I little collective effort by the community and bang youre "#1".

From the little I've read about it, just a few things the two have in common.

  • Full loot open PvP
  • Almost no safe zones
  • Crafting driven economy
  • Ability to buy a plot of land and build a guild temple. (guild hall)
 
 

I have played a lot of Age of Wushu and it is not that great...  It just made we want 12/12/12 to come faster...  It has potential but is not laid out well really and I would take Darkfall over it any day...  Not sure why it gets any hype as DF 1.0 is better.

Tried AoW. It's terrible. I didn't play DF1 but DF:UW cannot be as bad as AoW is at its current form.

I played AOW and I did have some fun for a side game...but the details are wrong

1.  It's somewhat instanced

2.  No full loot pvp

3.  There are quite a few safezones

 

That said, it is fun...the combat was actually cool.   Here's a vid I made just so my clannies could see of the combat.  That said, towards the end of the vid you see the combos which are really cool (1:30 in or something).  Also pay no attention to my clan mates qqing about DF being closed...lol

There's more to the game and it is beta...not saying its Darkfall...but its not bad either.  For the person that said f2p sucks...I tend to prefer a sub as well, but as far as lag...there was none and there were a ton of poeple together dueling and stuff.

Advertising aside, I think this topic has some merit. I.e. if UW fails, what else is there that is an: 

1) open-world MMORPG

2) with meaningful skill-based PVP

3) in a fantasy setting

Is there anything like that on the market or coming up that isn't a complete train wreck (that is, other than Mortal Online)? A lot of MMO gamers (myself included) are pretty desperate for a game like that - but I'm not at all confident in Aventurine, who've shown themselves to be hilariously incompetent in the past. Is UW our last hope? 

Ofc it has merit... and yeah, from the looks of it, it's looking pretty damn dark on the horizon.. Age of Wushu and ArcheAge are somewhat promising sandboxy games, but they are still tab-target and won't come close to the immersive and skilful combat we've learned to love in darkfall.
