Yep, the monetization killed this game, I don't know anyone still playing it.

You would think that Activision would take a hint about such issues, but no, they blindly go about their way....

You clearly haven't played the game. The monetization going on in the game was very minimal. Everything in the game was achievable by just playing the game and leveling up getting the same items anyone could buy with real money if they wanted to.

People like you kill me with your over stating the obvious when it suits your cause. Try lying a little more, and maybe we might believe you.

And the monetary system in the game had nothing to do with the games faults. that would be the lack of things to do and end game issues and the lack of a proper grouping system for people to do raids and Nightfall's.

Like I said, you clearly haven't played the game.

Hit me up on steam for an invite to the server. It might be best if I add you guys since there are like a few thousand darks on steam.

Ill have the server up a day before the game goes live.

I tried playin the second one, but the first few enemies required a silver sword, which I didnít have, and the materials to MAKE one were...guarded by the things Iíd need said sword to kill. Spent several hours trying to figure out what is maybe done wrong, in the end I just uninstalled it.
Never played the first game either, but I may. I played W3 and both expansions and I know thereís so much backstory that I just donít get because of not playing the previous two. Might give #2 another shot, dunno.

What do you mean you didn't have a silver sword? Its been a while since I played the second one, but I dont recall not have any silver swords to start with. I seem to recall you always start out with both swords, but they are the start versions.

But, even if you dont, I know one has to be close by. The devs would not have you doing things without the proper items to do it.

Geralt actually loses his silver sword in a fight with a dragon towards the end of the castle invasion sequence at the beginning of the game, so you actually have to build a new silver sword.

Yea, I couldn't remember, Its been a long time since I played that game. but I'm pretty sure you can get another one pretty easily.

It's not really free if I'm required to pay my attention to your newsletter, or pay my effort to signing up for your newsletter.

Getting tired of the "Free" word.

You remind me of reddit's choosybeggars sub. The other day, someone was ranting that a free piano listed on Craigslist wasn't really free if the person needed to come pick it up - to be free, it should be delivered to the home of whomever wanted it.

Culture of entitlement. It's the new norm for the "You're all #1 winners!" generation.

LOL, you beat me too it. Was going to say something very similar to that. Millennials!!!

Geez CJ, you gotta calm down, if you played one of these games you have played them all. they all play mostly the same way.

Personally I love these games, the game play and combat are a lot of fun.

Seeing those Mayan Pyramids gave me flashbacks of the Aliens Vs Predators scene of them fighting on top of those Pyramids.

So people have to choose to enable a setting. That's a good thing.

Completely disagree on this. Because now, when people want to write damaging reviews that are actually written well, but contain bad information, there's no way to actually combat that by having people respond to the review. (and the reverse is also true)

this is where my thinking is. steam reviews are already essentially worthless, now they're not even worth a skim.

They are worthless, because most of the reviews are either people whining or bitching about something, and tend to be none related.

And on top of that a lot of the reviews are opinion based.

Thats not really a bad thing, but most of the time it does not reflect another persons feeling about a game. Some games are fun for others where as some are not. It all fall under that to each their own and opinions vary.

just let me know. the games been on sale at times. thats when I bought it. its a nice looking game and the map is really big. lots to do and explore.

Did one of the events in the game thats like a raid, was pretty nice, fought a big snake spitting poison at us at the end. Had some interesting puzzles to that you had to do to open up other areas.


I've heard that other players can destroy your forts while you're offline. What are your thoughts on that, and is fort destruction toggleable?

Yes it is, and I dont play PVP, only Coop. so my server when its up will be strictly PVE and Coop. all fun and exploration.

And yea, I dont care for that kind of stuff. Which is why I dont ever do pvp.
Ah, good to know. You and I are of one mind in that regard.

Awesome, look forward to seeing you guys when its out.

look me up in steam, dark88xx just look for the avatar like my picture here on the forums of the beholder.

Darks, I take it you're in North America? I'm in Euroland but for a Coop server that might be ok...hopefully your closer to the East Coast than West

Yes, sorry dude, I'm west coast in San Diego. but the server will be up 24/7 so you can get on and off as you please.

And this is going to be one of those pay monthly services for the server. So it will be online all the time unless I need to make a configuration change and reboot it. which that doesn't take but a min.

Own this game and will be running a dedicated server for Coop. So anyone that wants to play it on my server just let me know. Once the game goes live I will be renewing my server.
Not sure if I'll have shaken my Battletech addiction by then, but I'd like to give it a go on a CoOp server.

when it goes live, on the 8th I'm sure there will be a posting here on Blues, Ill let you guys know how to contact me to get access.

I mentioned earlier that I will be using mods. The server has the mods installed, but you guys will need to also go to the workshop and download those same mods. and they have to be in the same order as the servers. It will show you so its not that hard to set them up.

So glad that beta came out, it saved me 60 dollars. I saw this game for what it was when I played it. Beautiful looking water and effects, best I have ever seen, but its an empty shell of a game.
