Update #33

Afternoon Update Mark-A-Thon Part 4

Folks,

   More questions. In Part 8, I turn back to game design (progression system). 

Mark

P.S. As to the reason for doing updates instead of a live stream, it is easier on my voice (downtime between takes) and I can get other work done as well. :)

      Terrain changes based on what Realm holds the area = VERY frickin' cool !

      Creator Zaresh on May 1, 2013

      I definitely prefer fewer classes with multiple spec lines/wider range of available abilities to choose from (whatever form it takes, make the variety within the classes ). If you can effectively (from a programming and even a writing standpoint) do more things with fewer things, that just makes sense - it's efficient AND allows for more variety in the specialization. If you divide the variety into more classes, you lose the middle-ground, the hybrids, the ability to truly specialize and individualize your character. If you weren't going to have a bunch of abilities/skills/spells/attacks to use that would take multiple quick-bars and instead were going to have it very basic or limited, it might make more sense to just split the variety into different classes, but the ability to pick and choose and tweak and differ within a class can't be undervalued in a game like this. I should be able to go to 45 in heavy spear and then 20 shield and 35 axe or whatever, not just be forced to go all one way or all another, that feels not only a bit boring in multiple ways, but way too restrictive.

      I understand, that you then get people wanting to be able to re-spec so sometimes they can do this and sometimes they can do that (for those reasons I have a problem with re-spec), but for the mere sake that you didn't fully understand how something would work until you tried it and then you don't like it and want to be using blunt weapons instead of blade weapons with your 1h/shield option and a million other things that (with more complexity and less basis for understanding than the different between blunt and bladed) will probably happen, and for that we need a solution (the best of which I can think just being SUPER informed players about what stats, skills, etc. do what at what points and be able to really plan out before getting too far.)

      Less classes makes WAY more sense to me. Presumably, some sort of /respec will be possible. Thus, fewer classes means that someone can do more with their beloved character over a long career. Or, another way of thinking about it is that a well-known character is much-less likely to become obsolete as tactics change and the game evolves.

      Creator Jonathan Tyler on April 28, 2013

      For character progression, I would overwhelmingly love to see you take the route with fewer classes, but way more trees. Truman Barney a few posts earlier gave some great reasons to go for more classes, and brought up good points. But Mark brings up the idea of options, and I fully agree that more options are better.
      Rift had a great progression system -- there were SO many options available. Yes, many of them had little to no synergy, but still gave you more options. It still had way more viable options for class structure than simply having several classes.
      The biggest issue is how much of a skill tree you can fill up. In WoW and other three tree systems, you basically fill one tree, minus whichever abilities you find useless, and then dump the extra points in the bottom of another tree. There's no system like that for Rift -- you really have to do your homework, and having multiple classes combined allows a player to really tweak the main class the way they want.
      It doesn't help identify everyone in RvR, to be true... but I also like that element of surprise and chaos when fighting. I like *not* knowing what the other guy is capable of.

      Finally, if you do choose the many classes route, please make sure there at least 3 of each archetype so that choices are not limited! (Even if it has to wait until post-release for some.)

      Will the change in the realms appearance affect the mines themselves. For e.g will the vikings have a mine that will contain the remnants of old dead dragons or appear more nordic?

    6. Me_and_linc.small

      Creator Mel A on April 27, 2013

      The changing environment based on Realm control is intriguing. I certainly am curious about mines, though. If I play during a low population time of day and we're not strong enough to boot the baddies out of the mine, are we just stuck with the situation? Seems that such a thing would lead right back to zerging. I look forward to this issue being dispelled.

      Creator Tom M. on April 27, 2013

      The relic system in DAoC power strength is flawed. Hibs really only use power - mids strength - albs use both but as a Alb I dont see much difference with or without. (yeah I know the 10% thing) are you planning something on this scale here?

      Creator Jonathon Baxa on April 27, 2013

      I absolutely love the chainging terrain idea, that is amazing. Very innovative and cool! I'd almost back the game just on this alone lol

      The changeable terrain sounds pretty cool. Can't wait to see how that is implemented.

    10. Avatar.small

      Creator Truman Barney Arrowsmith Mid/Bors on April 27, 2013

      I say definitely 100% go the multiple classes route, to many MMOs are going multiple talents within one class.

      I want to be able to see a warrior dual wielding from the vikings and say oh thats a berserker ect. I hate trying to guess what spec a class is. Much rather have 30 classes that 10 with different specs. Of course let them spec which weapons they wield, or like DAOC had it be stronger in heals or buffs. But don't have three specs that completely change the outlook of the class.

      I hate to keep going back to your past but DAOC is more of what I want here than say WoW.

      As far as combat goes if you can mix the fluid combat of WoW with the positionals and reactive strategic combat of DAOC. Well you just created the best combat of any MMO ever. Reticle combat is a fad imo and gets boring after awhile I can never get far in Tera because every monster takes 100 clicks to kill and when your playing a MMO a game your going to be playing for years on end lol that ends up being a lot of clicks.... Make tab targeting interesting I know you can!

      Despite all the hate for WoW out there these days it is a brilliant game when it comes to, fluid movement, combat fluidness and even performance you can play WoW on a turd.

      TDD takes land, TREES grow... archers defend! this would be sweeeet.

      Vikings take land, weather/ice comes and viking melee increases in region- this would be sweeet.

      etc...

    MY INN, MY WAY – PHYSICAL REWARDS ============================== With this non-repeatable, limited tier, PLEDGE OWNER receives THIS IS MINE! rewards and THESE UPGRADES: instead of a structure, pledge owner is assigned ONE OF THE INNS IN THE SAFE AREAS of the world + ONE OF EVERY ITEM IN THE FOUNDER’S EXCHANGE + an ADDITIONAL 100 FOUNDER’S POINTS (400 total) + RESERVED NAMING RIGHTS for a guild you start (unless the guild's name is trademarked/copyright by someone else) + TOTAL NUMBER OF BETA INVITES UPGRADED TO SIX + TOTAL NUMBER OF CHARACTER SLOTS UPGRADED BY SIX AT LAUNCH. Best of all, you will work with our team to both decorate and choose a tasteful name for an inn that is consistent with our game’s lore for within the realm of your choice. As the master of your own inn, you will be able to buy and resell food, drink, etc. but any currency that you hold cannot be shared with other players or even other characters of yours (sorry, but Mark insists, no game-balance altering items). Your inn will remain your property as long as the game is operating, even if the account goes inactive. As the owner of the inn you will not have to pay any rent on the property but you will be managing an inn and have to maintain a positive cash balance or you’ll have to make up the balance from your own in-game (we are not selling gold, ever!) currency reserves. Think of this as a simple inn simulator. While we guarantee that you’ll have a plot somewhere in your server of choice (based on when you backed this game), not all plots are created equal. Backers will be contacted based on when they pledged for Camelot Unchained and gave us their contact information. In addition, pledge owner receives SIX DIGITAL COPIES OF THE GAME (redeemable at the HERO LEVEL ONLY). This tier will not be available after release.
