let’s keep this short, without extra sauces and ranting about topics…Your CEO hinted that they count with perhaps 2 more years of supporting the game (not denied that maybe even more). What will You do during these years? …don’t pretend that some of the following parts have none or less priority for Your community. WE WANT ALL OF THEM. Can You stand in front of us again, all of You Funcom CE team and make these points finally cleared once and for all so we can sleep well?
- MAP EXTENSION (Perhaps do new map extension even for a price of a loading screen or a separation from the current map?)
- BETTER AI (Is that even possible? Or at least fix it so it doesn’t break immersion akka running 3m away from player when charging on him)
- MOUNTS (From promotional YES, to hard ground reality NO, to newly felt MAYBE, we are expecting that in some sort of way. THIS IS A MUST for Your game to survive longer)
- SORCERY (You said that, You promised us that, then You said NO…at least program something what can utilize corruption somehow)
- SETTLEMENT SYSTEM (You said that, You promised us that, then You said NO… is that a problem with AI as well?)
now the “easier” stuff
CHARACTER CUSTOMIZATION extension (new body types, additional sliders, faces, haircuts, scars, other anomalies attached to the bodies/faces to match with lore possibilities…and if You think this have lesser priority YOU ARE WRONG, RPG game = a lot of people are CRAZY about these possibilities!)
NEW ANIMATIONS (Playing 18+ game I expect to see the dirtiest and evil animations possible…and not just them. Sexiles mod is fine, but c’mon You are wasting potential here, hire the modders, work with them, or do Your own, hide it in the server admin check mark menu if You think it is too much for some players eyes…sometimes I have the feeling from the community streams that You think of Your audience that they are bunch of children playing The Sims…this is R game, act upon it. More content is nice, but this is a field of great opportunity to grow upon to)
Revisiting old DLC’s (new building pieces coming in newest DLC’s are amazing, why don’t we get those new pieces also for the other building texture types? And why there is no arena item themed added in the newest DLC? What kind of strategy is this?)
Your designers (armor, items and everything else) are extremely talented people, tripple up their salaries and make them work 24 per day to produce more content Of course joking, but You got my point. After You add points 1-8 into the game, they will have a lot of things to do!
Now dear Funcom, I was critical, ranting, sometimes even rude towards You. Then I realized that after my 700h on PvP servers I spent another 700h on PvP RP server …so clearly You did a lot of things RIGHT (but modders saved the game for You truth to be said) and it would be pity to give up on this Magnificent-bug-AI crappy-awesomelylooking-smallmap-nomounts-nosorcery-loveatfirstsight game…and I want to thank Your team at the end for making it possible. <3
