PostSubject: World of Darkness MMO   Fri Aug 06, 2010 3:04 pm

Slightly off-topic, as it isn't a film or even an existing game yet, but does anyone have any plans to play the WoD MMO that's supposed to be coming out in 2011/12?

The reason I ask is somewhat selfish, but hopefully mutually beneficial:

I've played a great many of these MMO games over the years, some good, some bad (some just plain ugly), so I feel I've got a good idea about what makes a good one. My reasons for enjoying those that I did genuinely enjoy were many: some I liked because of the setting, some because of the gameplay; others are just fun to mess around with for a bit.

But the WoD game will be the first one where I actually, truly, deeply love the setting (yeah, I know it's the new WoD, but beggars can't be choosers), and would love to lose a lot of time to it. But I suspect that to really enjoy it I will need more than the usual level of immersion. Unfortunately, not everyone who plays it will feel the same, and nothing spoils my suspension of disbelief in an MMO setting quicker than seeing Lucius Flax, my over-confident, pompous and self important Ventrue nightclub owner, having to interact with a constantly-bouncing Nosferatu called "YO_MAMA_SUX_BALLZ".

It's just wrong.

So I'm hoping that at least a few of you lovely people on here might give it a go, if only to save me from having to hunt these people down and kill them

Depends how much it costs tbh, I have a free MMO I play (By that I mean keep to myself and quest like a bitch) and also have Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning that I'll play for brief spurts when money is available.

Otherwise, I'm not fond of New World and haven't got enough information to sufficiently judge if I will waste time on it, if I play I'll definitly let you know who I am though Smile

I currently play Lord of the Rings Online, and I am looking forward to trying out the WoD MMO (whatever it's called and whatever version of WoD it's based on). I am hoping it captures some of the feel of VtMR and VtMB (VtMB and VtMR are my only real exposure to WoD, so I have no PnP biases to overcome). If it does, I'll stick with it.

Hey Childe, I have LOTRO, was playing it in open beta and have a lifetime subscription to it since I'm a founder. Don't have it installed ATM though, got a bit tired of it after going through Moria, and Lothlorien but It's a pretty good game despite it being an MMO. I'll probably reinstall at some point, just got tired of the whole MORG thing...nothing you really do has any real consequences, or any long term lasting effects from any of your actions.

I'll never PAY to play any MMO again, I spent over $2000.00 on the original Everquest and half again that much on EQ2 subscription fees, over the many years I played both...it all seems a bit pointless after awhile.

I remember this one time I was with some guild members and we camped this one area in EQ for over 36 hours straight. We were trying to get this one item to fall for everyone in the group, everyone got their item but... NEVER again will I do stuff like that it's totally insane ROFL

Max,

I've had similiar experiences with MMOs too, doing pointless and rediculous things for a freakin item that doesn't have any real world value. I played City of Heroes/Villains for years, have about 2 years of total time in that game and it stole many many hours of my life. In the end, I felt no different, nothing accomplished, just the daily grind of running MMO errands and for what? To max out my character so I can begin a new one?

For the WoD MMO to have any pull for me it will have to NOT be like all the other MMOs, if I smell a hint of WoW of CoH I will run the other direction. I left Bloodlines back in January to pursue Star Trek Online Beta and quit after 2 weeks. It was was same old game I've played many many times inside a Star Trek shell and it would eventually lead me to the same pointless place I was with all the others. Hence my return to Bloodlines and you wonderful people back in March.

All in all, I get ALOT more satisfaction modding Bloodlines and hanging out with you guys on the forums than I ever did playing an MMO.

There's a lot of talk in the MMO community about whether it's possible to make a "non-grindy" MMO. So far the consensus seems to be "no" because MMOs have to have a lot of time sinks, and "Go kill 42 of these ravaging monsters and bring me their spleens" is an easy "quest" to make.

I don't mind the grind if the fiction is OK (like Middle-earth). I can understand its lack of appeal, though. Grindiness alone won't keep me away from the WoD MMO.

LotRO is going free-to-play in the Fall.

Just looked at the latest over at Planet-Vampire.org. Latest guess is late 2013/early 2014 at the soonest. About a month ago, CCP/White Wolf was touting some 'big announcement', at GenCon, but it turned out to be about the books/game line, not the MMO.

When it comes to WODMMO news, the folks at CCP have their lips glued together tighter than a Mormon prom queen's knees.

Over on the White Wolf forum, use of the term 'vaporware' can get your account banned. Ask Claudia. Yet other sites have given up waiting for news. IF the WODMMO ever comes out, I'll probably give it a try, because I like vampire-related games/movies/books/etc. I'm not holding my breath, though.

I like the Thread Necromancer. Very Happy

Loved the necromancy too Smile
I basically follow PGM's views. About the books, I'm pissed against this new Onyx Path, and frankly, bleh.

I think the WODMMO should be on this list:

This game does sound awesome. I hope that at least you can decide on your clan or your clan would be decided from a quiz (much like in VTMB).

I hope it has more clans than VTMB.

I'm skeptic about the idea of them allowing more than the Camarilla clans at first, but I do hope they will add them later if nothing else What a Face

If it does come out and the subscription charges are reasonable then I can see myself playing it, if my computer doesn't have a hissy fit and burn to a crisp like a vampire staked through the heart and left for the sun to rise. That's a pretty big if I admit.

It should be like guildwars. One time buying it and always be able to play it.
And I'd love to see all (major) clans included, not just Camarilla ones. I would get to play a Tzimisce! Very Happy They probably won't allow you to go independent (or maybe they will when you reach endgame?), but I'd probably end up in the Sabbat as a Tzimsice (assuming they let you). Would be fun if I had some friendly contacts in the Camarilla Razz XD

I don't know. Both, Antitribu mod and the MMO were ancient topics already when I signed up at PV in January 2010...
My belief is that both of them will be released shortly before the appearance of the 4th horseman... The one on the pale horse, with the bones and the scythe.

Hmm, I would love playing as a Salubri, but if that isnt included (considering that there are about 7 left in the WoD), then I would love playing as a Malkavian...that is, as long as people arent going nuts over the insanity. I mean, when I came to this board, I did consider making my user name after something Malkavian, but after being a few places elsewhere, its like people dont take insanity seriously. I mean, there more or less using insanity for appearances, like "Herp derp eyem insane faer meh!" [End Rant]

Welcome to the fishmalkies SG Very Happy People who don't realize that Malkavians can seem to be pretty much normal....up until a certain point, where they can totally freak out!
