Re: Firefall public beta weekend

5 years! That seems long to me! But what do I know about developing games I just play them.

let that be a lesson to you young man!

wtf is titan then?

is it mmorpg?

or mmofps?

if Firefall was actually an mmorpg it would be quite awesome the way the play control is... would be running around swinging axes and shit

FYI...

FIREFALL there is clipping for player characters. when you run into another player or npc, you actually do bump into them.

also, after you kill a mob, you can actually push it around... lol

Hey Guys,

If you still want to check it out there are a bunch of beta weekend giveaways going on this week.

For example (can I link?): »www.mmorpg.com/giveaways.cfm/off···out.html

And it's third AND first person (you can switch between them).

Been playing in the Beta weekends since last weekend. Enjoying this game a good amount. Very good potential. Still some polishing and optimizing to come and that will only make it that much more enjoyable. It can be very confusing as far as where to go after you have no quests and the tier system and battlesuit garage could be a little more user friendly.

I have 12 CONSECUTIVE DAYS OFF COMING....

Going to fire up FIREFALL again...

I'm pumped... I'll be sure to post as many screenshots as I can

like I said in the WoW forums, I think this game is going to be huge, because it's an easy transition for WoWers, very similar

and it's supposed to end up having massive raids like WoW too... this IS the next big thing IMO...

GW2 will always be my #1 main game for me, but I can see Firefall attracting more people in general since its F2P and toony similar to WoW

Just patched this past Monday. Frame constraints have been removed while they work on pve vs pvp balance. Not sure what bugs you refer to, and I've run across quite a few myself, none that affect my game play. For beta it feels pretty solid to me. If anyone wants to get together in game for thumping, chosen hunting, etc. let me know.

yeah they have a friends list, The interface is a little weird at first but once you get used to it the controls are quite nice.

Me and Kris just played for probably a couple hours. What a cool ass game. I can see this one getting completely addictive. We also did 1 PVP battleground, which was very neat. Being able to fly with boosters gave the PVP a whole different feel.

The game ran relatively smooth for the most part. I got some chugging here and there when there were a lot of enemies and other players on the screen. You could tell the game engine still needs some tweaking. I'm sure some video drivers would help also.

It took me a good 20min or so to get the hang of the UI and what was going on. After that, I think it was smooth sailing.

If they're going to have some kind of dungeons or raids with full squad groups, this game will be epic.

This shit is completely tossing Planet Side 2 up.

I think the PVE is going to be more Dynamic like guild wars. Not sure if they will have dungeons/raids or not, but who knows! I have been part of some pretty large groups where we ran around and killed chosen/took back our territory which was a lot of fun. The tornadoes are a little bit crazy.

Once you get to tier 2 you can craft different weapons to customize your character to your liking. The crafting is setup very well and can be pretty complex. If you visit the firefall forum page there is a lot of info on how it works. So far I have been really impressed.

The PVP is a lot of fun. The added element of having to worry about someone above/below you throw a new dynamic on pvp!

I've gotten enough of the gameplay to satisfy my beta needs. I don't want to delve to deep unless we can keep beta toons I made that mistake before in games. It's more fun to take it all in when it is released. But the game feels and plays great.

Hey folks,

As an addition to the awesome content and great gameplay in this new milestone. We are also pleased to announce that we will no longer be wiping XP from characters. Play to your heart's content and know that you won't have to start over again.

Should there be any issues with tech trees or equipment, we may reset your tree and then refund your XP so that you can respend it as you see fit. Thanks for playing!

So no more EXP wipes? Does this mean we get to keep our characters once the beta is over? And one more question, is it still only beta weekends, or is it all week now?

No more exp wipes, which essentially means we get to keep our characters. The game is 24/7 for founders, who get 5 invites to give out that are "permanent" invites.

Thanks to whoever sent me an invite for this, I just created my account will download when I get back home, it is going to be a good way to spend the holidays. I will post my User ID when I get it.

What do you think of the founder packs?

Right now they are 25% discounted so you can get the max level for $75 until Jan 1st I believe.

I had asked Moos See Profile to send you one, because you were off playing Alliance ballerina characters in pink with pixies last night.
