Fallen Earth - Re-Submission

10 posts in this topic

Hello AJSA!

This is my re-submission for Fallen Earth, as in my previous one I failed to list the Pros and Cons of this game.

Fallen Earth is a free to play, post-apocalyptic MMO on Steam, here is the description:
 

It’s 2156, and the world has been destroyed by both nuclear and bio-chemical means. Your story takes place in one of the few habitable places left in the world, the Grand Canyon. As a clone with an uncertain past, your job is survival in a world now built on destruction, betrayal and fragile factional alliances.

Explore, harvest and stake your claim to over 1,000 square kilometers of harsh and mysterious terrain. The classless advancement and non-linear gameplay allows you to play the character you want. Join a random dynamic events to capture resources and invade towns, capture and hold a Progress Town, fight through instances, take part in the rich faction backstory, or make a living by selling what you scavenge and craft on the auction house. Fallen Earth gives you the freedom to do exactly as you want. The world may be a shadow of its former self, but there’s no limit to what’s possible for you to accomplish.

Pros and Cons:

Pros:

  • Free to play. You do not need to spent any amount of real-life money to progress and compete at high level in this game.
  • A huge open world (1000 square kilometers) with virtually no loading times
  • Both Third and First person combat, using a vast array of modern and often "makeshift" weapons.
  • Unique vehicle/mounts, including (but not limited to) ATVs, Motorbikes and Cars.
  • Extensive faction-based gameplay, which puts you in sutations to make enemies with other players who have chosen an different faction (this is done later on in the game)
  • An interesting array of weapons, ranging from meele weapons (knives, swords, hammers etc) to highly powerful ranged weapons (pistols/handguns, rifles, shotguns etc)
  • A huge crafting system that lets you gather and create all sorts of useful items for you and people around you including (but not limited to) armor, weapons, ammunition, food, mounts (and vehicles).

Cons:

  • The game's visuals are rather dated, as the game was created back in September 2009
  • The control scheme can take some getting used to, as you have to switch between your mouse controlling your aiming reticule for combat and your mouse interacting with the game's UI/HUD
  • There are some limits to the free to play model:
    • You're limited to 10 Red Rhips (The game's currency) which is 100,000 White Chips in total in-game currency. (The currency is done in Chips, ranging from White (lowest), Blue, Red and Yellow (highest)
    • Your crafting times are slower compared to a Premium (subscribing) member
    • You also level slightly slower than a Premium player
    • You cannot access the Global chat channel as a free player
    • You have only one character slot as a free player
    • You can only queue 1 item up to craft at once
    • If I missed anything on the free to play model, here's a link of the comparisons to other payment options :  http://www.gamersfirst.com/sites/www.gamersfirst.com.fallenearth/files/F2PMatrix.png
  • The world being so huge there is a lot of ground to cover, which might deter some people who don't like moving from town to town for 10-20 minutes each time.
  • The questing/mission system is very much like other MMOS (Kill X number of this, gather X number of this, Escort this guy to that place) which some people might not enjoy.
  • Almost forgot about the free to play...your cosmetic wardrobe (which lets you equip cosmetic gear) is fully locked until you purchase items to unlocks all the slots in there. These are somewhat expensive as you can pay real money for them BUT they are tradeable in-game, so many people put them on the Auction House so you could buy them purely using in-game currency.

Those are just Pros and Cons that I've picked up while playing.

I'd love the AJSA to be a part of this game because of it's unique sense of Community. I've not encountered such a serious but greeting community in an MMO before. The game encourages you to team up in Clans and make enemies with other players and Clans. I've also seen some real serious Roleplaying in the form of Clan-based wars and skirmishes.

Well I think that's about it, let me know what you think below and if anyone has any questions I'll be happy to answer them!

Peace!

I played this game about a year ago when it had alot less going for it. But now it's just fantastic. The GMs are also super friendly, I've even directly spoken to one and we had a nice chat.

If you do try it out friend me in-game, my character is Zandorr Ironwall.

Also if we get at least 10 players from the AJSA we can create a Clan in-game.

I have played Fallen Earth since Beta in 09. It is by far my favorite mmo. The Crafting in FE far outweighs the crafting available in any other MMO. I dont do much PVP, so it would be unfair for me to comment on that aspect.  I love the game Lore and like Lightbearer faction the best.  yes, this is Nebby, say Hi in FE.

I've done a bit of PVP, but I'm very into RP at the moment with a clan i'm in. The whole atmosphere of the game is just awesome.
