Skyforge [new mmo rpg]

51 posts in this topic

skyforge_pvp_001.jpg

 

So you all probably heard about Skyforge. Its no ordinary mmo and It launches next week (July 16th).

 

I will be leading the EU community (at least until a new leader wants to take over). Info about recruitment, strategy and other important stuff will be posted in this thread, so dont miss out.

For now I would like to see how many members are interested in this AAA mmorpg and what role are you planning to pick up. If you are free to play 3 roles are unlocked instantly (Mage, tank, support), to unlock others you need to progress.

I will pick up the  support, since I see think we wont have that many.

 

 

Short info about the game:

Free 2 play

Does not look pay2win for now. Premium perks are small

Has something for anyone (competitive and casual pve/pvp)

Instance based

Complex skill tree, a lot of customization

Action/tab target mix.

Guild wars (pvp and pve)

I own a 4 year old laptop that can run it on medium graphics.

 

Unless you are trying to play the game on a toaster your rig can handle it.

I'm going to hold out for the 16th. but can't wait. Definitely going to get Berserker. It's the style I always go for in games if it's possible. Also, looking forward to trying out other classes like Kinetic. It looks like a Biotic class from Mass Effect.

Oh great, all aboard the new hype train is it? I'll stay on the other side of town in case it rams into the station upon arrival like so many others have before it. It'd be one thing if this was just a game that finally crawled it's way over here after being in full release status elsewhere for some time, but this sucker is brand new, and this isn't its release, it's the start of the actual, original, the game is still in development open beta. One thing you have to remember about games in this state is that anything, and everything is subject to change at any time, so it's best to not get yourself too worked up, or invested into a game at this stage, especially before you even had the chance to play it.

One of the cool things with the game is during PvP you can change classes if you want. Or in the middle of a mission if you want

 

Say go in as a Paladin change to a bezerker if you need more DPS

Hype train? All I see is people saying they are interested in trying it.

Its really fun, I got into the closed beta and I have a few vids uploaded on my channel of the playtime. Its raw unedited footage pulled right from my twitch stream though, so feel free to skip around.

I'm mostly directing that towards MoVe who like with ArcheAge before it has been popping into various threads, and making new ones to talk about this game, telling people how they NEED to check Skyforge out, and so on. When he/she did that with ArcheAge I told him/her not to get too invested in a game you haven't even played yet, but even though he/she has said he/she is supposedly staying away from hype trains after the ArcheAge mess, here he/she is calling people to board another one for this game.

 

Hype for a game in this sort of situation is when people are getting all psyched for a game they can't even play, they're just all excited by all the videos, news, and other carefully released info the company has put out. A hype train would be where a group of people are working themselves up together, and there may be some conductors trying extra hard to work people up. Pretty much what we have here, so I'm sticking with my statement.

Eh, Skyforge is entertaining to play. I'm glad it's Free to Play or I'd be passing it by and going back to Battlefield 4 :P

I play a zerker just unlocked Slayer, on the way to kinetic.

 

Zerkers are just pure DPS  I Love that class no defense well almost non stun breaker and anti-cc ability.

 

Even have a talent to do more damage under certain circumstances in PvP

 

All in all I like it, just hate once you get to around 3300-3500 prestige seems like all the missions are IMPOSSIBLE rating

Managed to get a Founder's Code for early access the other day. 2 days in and I think this game has one of the best combat mechanics I've ever played.

I'm not really one for the pvp stuff, i generally stink at it, I'm for the pve raid stuff and gunner looks like a really strong pve dps class.

Im not usually for the pvp stuff but after scouting their site and reading up on how they plan to do the pvp i'm interested in trying it out. My biggest beef with most mmo's pvp systems is that i usually end up having my hind end handed to me by advanced pvp vets most of the time due to unbalanced team assignment. Skyforge seems to be promising some sort of ranking system so that doesn't happen so lets see if they manage to pull it off. Also i didn't realize gunner was locked for non-founders so i'll probably role the tank for now until i unlock it.

PvE might not be the most fun either. Since there's no healers, you have to rely on team coordination to time protective shields.

Wait...no healers? "Gasps" no whiny brats complaining about me being a horrible tank cause i actually make them do something useful....."lol wow joke".  Personally i think it makes the game more exciting when you take on a group challenge with out having to fall into the cleche "cookie cutter : Tank, Dps, Heals" routine.  :D
