OT: Mortal online *Updated!*

    Anyone ever heard of it?

    After seeing darkfall kinda blow I'm looking into this. Shows promise, I'm downloading the beta client and will check it out this afternoon.

    Anybody else taking an interest?

    *update*

    Ok so far I love:

    -Player housing
    -Murderer system identical to ours (20 hours instead of 40 though)
    -Full 1st person view, even gets hazy or moves crazy when you climb on a horse and you actually swing your axe as you mine
    -Landscape is epic!
    -Stealing
    -Shoving, you actually can shove people in town!
    -CRAFTING! Is awesome! you have to mine ore, smelt metal, craft heads of weapons, shafts, the whole deal, I cant wait to try more!
    -Full nudity! Thats right ladies! and no circumcisions! My wife said it looks like an elephant trunk rofl.
    -When you die, you are an invisible ghost, with everything looking very spooky, healers cast a beam of light to the sky so you know what direction to head.

    So far I hate:

    -Combat is a little weird, though it might be that i'm fighting odd stuff, you have to aim really low to hit pigs and the like.
    -Some amazing views are tarnished by certain elements not rendering correctly.
    -(I cant believe i'm saying this) the soundtrack needs a bigger budget... I'v never noticed how much music plays into this. You have some of the best scenery iv ever seen in a game and its ruined buy this cheap music.
    -I got stuck in game and there is currently no auto stuck help....though as weve seen in UO, this may be a good thing. You have to wait for GM to come move you.

    Re: OT: Mortal online anyone?

    I've been following it for over a year, and was intrigued that the development core worked on the original UO concept. However, I pretty much lost all interest after reading the forums on a regular basis, and the descriptions of the actual gameplay when it got into beta mode. It sounds like another major flop in the making, but maybe I'll be wrong. :(

    Re: OT: Mortal online anyone?

    darkfall blows? lol what sieges have you been going on?

    MO looks alright but we'll have to wait and see. sometimes it only takes 1 or 2 ****ed up game mechanics to make a game not worth playing for a long time.

    Re: OT: Mortal online anyone?

    Yeah the sieges are pretty silly, alot of lag, alot of crashes and you only need to destroy the guildstone, walls do nothing.

    Don't get me wrong, I want to like it but currently I don't.

    Yes the sieges is theory are cool but the constant grind to get there is silly.

    This is coming from a guy who hates every bit of WoW. Darkfall is to WoW as Siege is to prodo.

    Sure id rather play df than WoW but neither really do it for me.

    FYI Iv been playing mortal for like an hour and i'm really digging it.

    Its not the best but graphicly the game is amazing.

    On par with like oblivion id say.

    The game is not about the end, its about the journey, its full of immersion. Reminds of days in brit sewers, killing rats and flipping switches and wondering what hidden doors I might be opening.

    Re: OT: Mortal online anyone?

    That is what I was hoping for, particularly the crafting system, and the original description of the dynamic environment (i.e. the things players do have permanent effects on the actual game world for good or bad) but I was not encouraged by the progression as it developed. Maybe the hordes of what mostly seem to be deranged people that have frequented their forums for the last couple of years while it was being developed are more responsible for turning me off than the actual game, since all I have seen of that are videos.

    Is it still Euro servers only? Their initial deployment for the beta was an absolute nightmare. I had originally signed up for the beta, but never went through with it.

    Re: OT: Mortal online anyone?

    LOL thats a great analogy really you hit the nail on the head.

    i'll definitely be trying mo BUT NOT during the open beta testings. screw that ****, i'd rather wait 3-6 months after the game has come out so that its not incredibly frustrating if they have system problems. cause im the type of person who will cancel a game account if the server isn't up for 48 hours so i typically avoid game launches.

    All i want in a game, is when you mine, you actually dig a hole and change the landscape, where you could dig yourself a huge underground base.

    Re: OT: Mortal online anyone?

    That would be awesome!

    I have hopes because while DF had some cool features, it was another game built around end game, which I hate.

    UO was really fun in training and this game looks like its all about exploring and adventuring. They have an awesome clafting system and breed system.

    Also the ability to tame extremly rare beasts of burden and one time only unique monsters.

    Can you give us more details on your experience purchasing and installing the game? Have they worked out the electronic delivery bugs? Is it still Euro only? Is the game stable, is your lag really bad...those sorts of things, and thanks in advance for the info. :)

    Ahhh another Darkfall fail. The first person view. DAMN I hate that. I don`t care what game it is,if theres no 3rd person I`m not even gonna give it a second thought.

    Other than that it looks pretty good though.

    Lets see...

    Download was by torrent. So if you have bit torrent installed, it was as easy as clicking download and "save torrent" there were like 1000 hosts since its a legal download, so I was downloading at like 200 kbps and I think I finished in like 6 hours. I just turned it on and then went to sleep.

    I dont believe there are north american servers at the moment but I havent noticed alot of lag, I notice a quick freeze every 5 minutes, but thats expected I guess. I have not become annoyed by it yet.

    The values were in euros but it showed me in american how much it would cost.

    When I went to play, it had a DLL file error. I went to their support forum. It had a list of problems, found it. Said to install new direct X. I did. It worked.

    Believe it or not it was actually very painless. I run a normal computer with vista, nothing crazy.

    Setting up an account, paying, and getting confirmation took 30 minutes.

    will post more as I see it.

    Forget you sir!

    They make it is a point to say how much they hate the third person view. They are really building towards putting you in the hot seat and to experience first hand everything that happens to your character.

    I died last night and I fell on my back and slowly closed my eyes when I died... It was awesome.

    Thanks for the extra info archite666. I'll be interested to see what you think when you have had a chance to explore, figure your char out, and interact with other people more.

    Yes thanks for posting! this game has been on my radar for awhile but so far not much info other than their forum which seems dominated by a bunch of nuts, kinda like here I guess haha. My main concerns are about skill gain and skill use, is there one dominant template and how much of a grind will it be to raise skill? Also heard there are global skills all characters on account share? When is the game officially live? Its in extended beta still right? sorry for all the questions :D

  23. Thanks Cash for the info. keep it comming.As soon as it goes live i will give it a go.Still going to play UO though,I cant help it im an addict hehe, Even though i said i was quiting and did for a few months and played fallen Earth ( Fail in my eyes).

    So far my guild is systematically figuring out the strongest builds for certain things.

    Yes certain breeds (races intermix if you didnt know) have better attributes for pvp but thats kinda the point of races ist it?

    There is supposedly skills that all chars share though my knowledge is limited with how that works.

    They are pushing it back more, which is good, it could always use more polishing.

    Fallen earth was terrible!

    I played in beta and then in live. It was sooo bad.

    Had I know it was a wow clone with terrible controls I would have never tried it.

    There is a north American server. Its called NA1 and its the only north American server there is. I ping 60 and the lag is only bad when its a HUGE battle, i've seen 25-50 people battles and they look good on my comp.

    also Wyrm and Furyos both play

    I just have one, no need for a second right now but my board has two pci express slots if SLI was needed.

    Id love to try the beta but I refuse to pay to play a beta :( looks pretty cool tho. Thanks for sharing :D Just got a new system a few months ago I want a game that really uses my hardware, this one looks like it has some nice eye candy.
     
  31. archite666

    archite666 Guest

    Well you dont pay to play the beta.. well not exactly. You buy the game, which gives you access to the beta. Like most MMOs do.
     
  32. Yea i made that mistake with Fallen Earth.So im gonna wait a bit and watch.
     
  33. archite666

    archite666 Guest

    Yeah me too... I always convinced my brother to as well and hes poor... I feel really bad so the deal is when I find a good mmo to play, I have to buy him an account.

    So far this is looking like it, I'm gonna update soon.

    I have to admit that I haven't followed Mortal Online closely, but I read some of the game information and it sounded great. I downloaded the client and participated in the last stress test, but there was a serious lack of content. I spent over an hour running through the wilderness from one town until I found another and never saw a living thing. The landscape itself is nice, but the game currently feels very empty and incomplete. Maybe I just didn't know where to go or didn't know what I was doing, but the game feels like it should be a long time from release. The game mechanics themselves show some promise, but I'm going to sit back and wait awhile before I decide to dedicate any time to this one.

    I too felt this way and you are right they do need to fill up that beautiful space with more to do. I believe our hopes will be fulfilled as they have pushed the beta even further out....Imagen the same care taken with each aspect of the game to the degree we have seen in the current content...

    *shutters* if only....
