Encouragement-- for those concerned about the Wipe
Hey yall, so i didnt know how to put this, but, i wanted to give everyone some encouragement
for a small minority i keep hearing people go playing other games, because of progress lossed during wipe, and or waiting for the lauch
well heres my encouragement
focus on the best parts the most fun parts of the game, not everything is about items and progress and Albion Online Silver, -such as focus on the thrill of pking, focus on the risk the reward- that feeling of adrenaline- of danger, to be pked or to be the pker- focus on all the shortcuts and know hows and information one would have as an experienced player that can easily rebuild it all with superior strategies- focus on making friend and forming guilds
- if you instead shift your focus to the fun thrilling things of the game, such as guilds, friends, killing people, having fun, making friends, chatting, crafting stuff, and gaining new skills and ways to progress it will be much easier to play without worrying yourself about the wipe, because you shouldnt be so worried because its a great game in and of itself
one last thing -skills gained is like muscle memory- muscle memory basically means- when you have already built a specific muscle such as a six pack or big biceps, even if you stop training for a while, and all the muscles gained shrinks, if you come back to train it again! it will rebuild so so fast, thats muscle memory! much faster then starting from scratch same as this game
do you seriously think, say for example, you progressed so far and just imagine a imaginary ranking system- and you were ranked five in this game, do you seriously think that after the wipe your progress will be lost and start all over and you wont be one of the strongest players??!! of course not... your skills, your knowledge, everything that makes you, and your muscle memory of course, you will get back to the previous position of progress thats probable and its quite easy too, and its a journey in and of itself
so enjoy everything and dont be discouraged about playing the game because of the wipe, but be encouraged by what ive said in this post.
For me the wipe isn't a problem, it's a known part of testing. I have never been one to take shots at developers or speak ill against a game, yet I can find no positive words for this game at this place and time.
The concept had so much potential and the game was sold as a wonderful environment where pvpers, crafters, merchanats, and explorers could cohabitate the world and everyone would have an enjoyable part to play. The reality of the game is so incredibly far from that it's borderline fraud. The game is currently very much a ship without a rudder right now and there doesn't appear to be any help on the way.
The overwhelming issue is the lack of actual meaningful development progress with the game. The road map appears very much the same way it did 3+ months ago. It appears I made a massive mistake by helping to fund this calamity. The core problems with the game have not been addressed in any meaningful way.
Probably the most important point. There is very little, if anything at all, that is enjoyable about playing the game. It's hard to quantify the 'fun factor' but this game is missing it.
The GvG PvP which is the entire purpose of this game is in such a terrible state that even those that live for it are fed up.
The economy has been talked about since the first day of testing and it's still in the crapper with no site of meaningful improvement on the horizon.
The fact that zones have up to 4 blatant choke points and the developers are refusing to address is means you can never have any kind of population density and have an enjoyable game.
Exploiters are tolerated, childish behavior is seemingly endorsed.
And so much more.
And yup, before you even ask I contacted the development team and asked for a refund as I would so much rather cut ties and be done with this wreck but they flat refused. So the assumption can be made that they are bleeding cash and know they are going down.
Maybe you guys will like some of these albion online ideas
Would be a cool way to add even further diversity to the game especially for armor and weapons that there are no artifact alternatives for.
To my understanding albion online pay to win(P2W) works like this
The rest of the market will be completely unaffected. Because the albion gold in itself has absolutely no value ingame.
Albion Online beta will last most likely through all of 2017
A guild is just so much more fun in this game and always has been. Gathering is definitely possible solo though and many do so including myself.
Albion Online Gold Exchange and Market Dynamics
It seems weird that you can buy premium with both Albion Online Gold and Albion Online Silver at a ratio of 17:1, kinda defeats having an exchange as surely the option to buy premium with either would keep the exchange rate at exactly 17 to 1?
The Destiny Board seems to be the key I'm lacking knowledge of though, and was wondering if anyone knew some answers to these questions:
Albion Online - Sloppy’s Epic Siege System!
A clans battle-box contains 10% of all Albion Online silver farmed from monsters or dungeons
