[PC] Life is Feudal: MMO

Unread postby icycalm » 30 Dec 2017 01:18

This is already out, but it's coming on Steam in January, so I am waiting for that because I want my hours recorded:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/70003 ... eudal_MMO/

The moment Steam emails me that it's out I am jumping in. It's the next big MMO/Rust-wannabe, so it's January's biggest game for me. Whoever doesn't mind risking $30, you are welcome to join me right away. Everyone else should wait until I report back, because these extremely ambitious games are also extremely difficult to get right, so chances are good it'll be a waste of money.

The upshot is that if it's good it will be heaven, in which case you'll want to jump in asap because the good times are to be had when we're all playing it together, and before we've had enough of it and you end up playing alone.


P.S. Don't buy either of these games (except for collection purposes I guess):

http://store.steampowered.com/app/29008 ... _Your_Own/
http://store.steampowered.com/app/49646 ... t_Village/

By all reports, they are mini-games based off the main game's engine for a quick cash-grab to fund the MMO's development.

This game is completely bias in favour of the guilds who took part in the first Beta Test.
A friend and myself have played YO PvE only. We joined the MMO 6 weeks ago, everything seemed fine to start, meeting different people etc. The spot we chose to settle in was controled by a large alliance.
Not a problem, pay tribute to the local king for his protection. That's easy!
Things were going well, we gained a few new members and started progresing with our settlement.
The King asked our Leader to join his alliance, it seemed the thing to do so we did.
They were at war with other alliances, we knew that. We were attacked multiple times from members of these alliances. Ok so it just got a little harder to skill up and build but we knew that would happen.

Here is the downside.
All resource is controlled by large guilds.
We are defenceless farmers with primitive tools defending against fully equiped PvPers,
we have had some success but not enough. Each death is skills lost and the enemy (one in particular, know this) They butcher us with ease take any items that will hold us back, food/boards/shields etc. One of the guilds from the enemy alliance has taken this to the point of bullying 6 attacks in the last 90mins our Blacksmith has now quit playing as two deaths took a weeks grinding skills away, two others payed to start new characters away from this.
The other members are saying that it is not a fun game to play.

I understand it's a PvP game but give the new guy's a chance to equip and defend. And put a stop to the bullying! it is not how raiding/war is done.

I would not recomend purchasing this game to anyone!

Where is his support to you?
Dont you pay something for him ?

You know they are at war.
Why did you join the Alliance ?
War isnt easy, and war comes along with losses.

For me, your king is just a stupid fat piece of meat, who wants you as his meatshield to have his own assets safe.

Time to move along, gather everything you need and search for another spot or another alliance.

Guilds "own" whatever they can patrol and KOS inside of. I mean you want a medeival simulation? Here's a game where the penalty for cutting down the wrong tree will get you killed. Just like poaching in the king's forest would get you executed in ye olden times.

Seriously. It's a game that let's you experience the absolute paramount need for banding together in larger groups in a true survival situation. This is exactly what people did around the year 1000. No one lived alone in a forest. It would be suicide.

But yeah what the last guy said is the essence of the game. If you aren't big enough to call the shots, then you find someone you can tolerate who can call bigger shots than you and you fight on their side in a grander strategic game. Military alliances and trade collectives are forming on the map already.

If you try to do the lone wolf thing, you'll end up steamrolled by forces much larger than yourself.

Sounds fantastic.

This is on sale for 14,99€ right now
I just bought it because they give you instant access to the MMO beta with it, PLUS the Steam version of the MMO, when it's released (edited)
So you get both games for the price of half of one of them right now
There will not be a cheaper way to get into the MMO for months, so if you are even mildly interested in it you should get it before the Steam winter sale ends
If recoil gets it, see if you can set up a Your Own server for us so we can mess around with it

I watched all the videos on the Steam page. They are incredible, and it sounds like they solved all of Rust's problems. You have terraforming, so you can build whatever you want wherever you want; far more complex construction and crafting, so you don't run out of things to make in two days; fast travel with mounts, but with a huge world that will still take you hours to cross (they say "days", but I am not sure if they mean real-time or in-game); weather patterns; a clear focus on groups, where they don't mince words and outright tell people that solo play isn't survivable; and even mini-games played via smartphones during the day so that you can do your grinding on the subway or something, and save your computer time for big moves with your friends.

It could still be a failure and not much fun, but at least it is clear that they have done a lot of thinking on how to make this work, and even if they fail as a whole, I am sure some of their ideas will prove to be successes that others can build on in future.

Can't wait to try it out.

If there's anyone interested in playing, I'm in the NA Telmun server on position 25 of the map below. My claim is at coordinate 4.104:4.46. Just build next to me and let me know what your name is in game so I can add you to my claim. My claim is named the same as my character, Serkr Odhen.

For those that are on Buyan, you'll need to transfer to Telmun. The reason for the switch is that it will be almost impossible to hold on to land in Buyan since only guilds can claim land in Buyan, you need ten people to form a guild, the money to upkeep the land, and the appropriate skill level in certain trades to even expand. Essentially, we need a trained army before entering Buyan and we can do it on Telmun.

Let me also say that to join our guild you'll need a real name, preferably Nordic-sounding like the rest of us. Here are some links in case you're having trouble coming up with serious-sounding names that aren't taken:

Last names: https://www.nordicnames.de/wiki/Surnames
