Hi guys, so I heard about the MMO release in beta. Is anyone playing it right now? If so can you tell me a bit about what you like/dislike?

Cheers

Oh right, thats interesting. One of the vids really emphasized the need to get in a guild asap. Bit annoying!

This is very, very true for both points.

Ha okay Vibe. But is it a good grind or just painstakingly boring af grind? I assume the former if you are still playing :)

I'm planning to build a small retaining wall around my house. How many years should I set aside for this task?

It's grinding the same thing over and over tbh. And it's slooooooooow. Honestly it's a game that you play semi-afk while you grind skills ala EVE online. The satisfaction comes from watching your village grow as a combined effort of the whole guild. The game is not just solo-unfriendly, it's unplayable solo. The skill cap is set to 400 which is enough to max out one branch of crafting, out of many.

One branch out of many, all of which rely on multiple of other branches of crafting to even be able to make stuff their own craft.  :lol:. Impossible to solo play if you actually want to progress in the game, you could keep remaking shitty shacks maybe, but not much else lol.

So I got the game, I played it and turns out its fucking class :D Got my bro Norr to get it, now we playing YO learning the game, getting prepared to enter the MMO. Its just amazing, basically a far far deeper more refined PW mod (warband mod). No regrets so far, playing on my laptop too with zero lag and issues. Quite a steep learning curve but yeah if you join a guild everyone is happy to help and answer questions. Community we have come across so far have been awesome, 10/10 would reccomend.

Looks like an awful grind. On the point of it not being solo-friendly: Can you progress in the game, in any way at all, if you have a couple people, but don't spend the majority of your time tilling the earth or some shit? In other words, can you be homeless and get around just by nicking stuff off of other players?
This is about being straight out retarded. Children see in slow motion like owls.

I'm playing in the same village/guild as Vibe and Leesin.
We have a friendly hunter as a neighbor, who we are trading with. He pays in furs, and we give him whatever we can provide him with. And we pretty much need all the furs we can get.

Basicly he is playing alone, but he has to trade or he'll be stuck with his stone-age equipment. But in the long run it's going to really difficult, because all the tools and equipment get worn out pretty fast. So maintanance is a problem. There are repair kits that everyone can use. But to make one repair kit you'd need to get to the end of one of the skill branches. And the materials needed for the repair kit are produced by other professions  :lol:

IMO this game has been designed to be played in an organized group. Which is maybe why it takes 10 people to form a guild and set up a guild claim.



And so far I've noticed that THIS GAME IS NOT AN MMO YET. You can play on a continent with over 3000 players online simultaniously. But if over 300 players gather to one area, the lag will become unbearable, might even crash the server. So there is one huge thing to be fixed.

What really makes a difference between Your Own and the MMO version is the large scale politic. On Your Own one active guild could bully the entire servers with player cap of 64. On MMO one active guild can still bully the peasants nearby, but now the peasants have the option to ask for help from others guilds, and maybe become vassals for someone etc. There are already some huge alliances with dozens of guilds and hundreds of players in them. And there's also internal drama in those alliances  :lol:

Nice post Lennu. You are right about the big guild alliances basically running the show. I accidentally came across this big guild called "The Forge" who are one of the biggest guilds in this major alliance apparently. It is a big operation, I think there is roughly 300 players split up into factions and then profession types. So far they have been super friendly and helpful and have welcomed my bro Norr and I. They have pretty frequent skirmishes and big battles with their enemy Alliance made up of mostly Russians afaik haha. It's like the neo-liberal free world vs the soviets again in a medieval setting. To gain skills takes a long time, but there are tricks and get arounds to make things faster. I'm taking the Artisan- Carpentry- Bowmaking route. It's super easy because this clan has loads of food and tools so its fairly authentic in the fact that as a medieval person living in a larger settlement, there is a division of labour which means you have the time to focus on your choice of craft rather than having to find food elsewhere.

Definitely sounds like fun. The more I hear about it I think I will give it a try sooner or later.
