Re: Firefall public beta weekend

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.

Does purchasing a founders package mean you're prepurchasing the actual game, or is it just the bonuses, swag, red beans, etc?

It's going to be F2P, Founders gets you the perma XP boosts and a big head start on leveling, as well as permanent beta (if you didn't have it from another Founder inviting you) until the game is released.

Just an FYI, The invites Ghastly and Jobbie got were permanent, not weekend invites. Not sure if it said so when you guys got the invite.

Oh damn, I didn't even know it was a F2P game. That's even better!

I played for quite a bit with KrisN I was going between heavy and engineer.

I would say you need both a heavy and medic for those high level drill events when there is a ton of mobs going for it the rest of the "dps" can be the rest of the classes.

I unlocked 3 skill points for the heavy and 2 for the engineer. This game is a lot of fun.

This week I will purchase my founders pack so we will have more beta invites for the DSLR folks.

This game is supposed to have WoW like raids when all is said and done.

and some sort of WvW GW2ish when all is said and done

with mounts

this will be the go-to game for WoWers imo who want fps and f2p

If you try to log in right now, all you get is a logo screen. They must have the servers down or something until this next Beta weekend? I dont know.

Haven't touched a computer in a while but I remember playing once with an army of engineers. There were three of us and we had turrets everywhere and it got ridiculous.
