Yes, I'm aware of the update and what they are doing:

Quote Sev
All of the melee skills will be condensed into 3 new skills.
Heavy Weapons: A 6/6 one handed melee combat skill based off Strength/Coordination.
Light Weapons: A 4/4 one handed melee combat skill based off Strength/Coordination.
Finesse Weapons: A 4/4 one handed melee combat skill based off Quickness/Coordination.

New Skills:
A 2/2 Dual Wield skill may be on the table. This skill would allow you to wield a weapon in your off hand and use an alternate Dual Wield animation while attacking. Your attacks would alternate between the two weapons, and your weapon swings would be delivered faster than a single weapon. Attack modifiers for each weapon would only apply to attacks with that weapon, and you would use only the highest defense modifier from the two weapons.

A 4/2 Sneak Attack skill based on Coordination/Quickness has been discussed. This skill would do extra damage from behind by making a check against your attack roll when you hit from behind. If the Sneak Attack also hits you'd do an extra 10 damage rating for trained and an extra 20 damage rating for specialized Sneak Attack hits. In addition, characters with high Deception skills would have a small (2-5%) chance to proc some of the extra damage with front hits, but the extra damage rating would be halved for Deception hits.

A 2/2 Dirty Fighting skill based on Coordination would have different effects based on the attack height of the swing. Your high swings would have a chance to debuff attack skills. Your low swings would have a chance to debuff melee defense and missile defense. Your mid swings would have a chance to cause a bleed effect on the target and to debuff healing effects as well. The bleed effect would scale with the value of the weapon; weapons from lower tiers would have a light bleed effect, weapons from mid tiers would have a medium bleed effect, and weapons from the highest tier would have a heavy bleed effect. The heaviest bleed effect would not be as good as any of the Nether damage over time spells.

The chance to activate the debuffs would be based on the skill level and could range as high as 25%. Characters with the skill specialized would use a better version of the debuff effects. The values of these debuffs are still being discussed.

A 4/2 Recklessness skill based on Quickness and Strength would be activated only when you were swinging at nearly maximum speed. All hits that are *not* critical strikes would be boosted by up to 20 damage rating, and all incoming strikes against you that were *not* critical strikes would similarly be boosted by up to 20 damage rating while this skill was active. The actual damage modifier would be based on your Recklessness skill and how close it was to your attack skill. If Recklessness is equal to or greater than your attack skill then you get the full benefit of 20 damage rating on strikes that are not critical hits. The additional damage you take from non-critical hits is always equal to the damage you output so you could intentionally not raise the skill if you wanted an option to do 10 damage rating and take an additional 10 damage rating from hits that are not critical strikes



I just fail to see how it makes AC like every other MMO... This is still very unique. Infact it makes melees even more interesting and unique template wise in my opinion. Adds alot of excitement to combat aswell.

Cool Template Examples:
Melee: Heavy Weapon, Shield Skill, Dirty Fighting... Or Heavy Weapon, Dual Weild, Recklessness..... or Light Weapon, Dual Weild, Recklessness and Dirty Fighting... Or Light Weapon, Sneak Attack, Dirty Fighting.. TONS of options
Twohand: Twohand Combat, Dirty Fighting, and/or Recklessness
Archer: Missle Combat, Finesse, Dual Wield, Snake Attack.

if you want to pretend that this change isn't classes that is fine. I see it for what it is and I will no longer support AC. I will always have my memories of when AC was a great game rather than the garbage they are turning it into.

Reading all of that I can look back at WoW or Rift classes and name the classes these new "skills" tie to in those MMO's.

Yes... But still not the same at all. Combat mechanics are way different. Total different game play experence. Nothing at all the same technically other than a name.

bs Hot...

That would be like saying there is a huge difference in CS, CS:S, COD, or BF.

You can paint brown crap gold, but in the end its still crap.


I'm not even using the name of the class as a point, but the name of the new "skills" which match the same gameplay options from the other big MMO's just in different classes.

How is that BS? You need to read what I am responding to in order to understand my responce. What you have stated in no way makes what I have stated BS in accordance to my orginal argument against this statement:

Volthorn posted:
-Foxy- posted:

after the feb patch this will no longer be true.


^My arguement is against this statement, and this statement alone^

What is said here is pretty straight forward:
- "Asherons call is one of a kind" ~ Many Agreed above.
- After the February patch Asherons call will no longer be one of a kind.

Whether you agree or not that "Asheron's Call is one of a kind" does not actually matter. What matters is how the patch changes AC's "so believed" uniqueness. I believe if Asheron's Call is not unique after the February patch it was not unique prior to the Feb. Patch. The patch changes nothing in this matter.

You can compare all types of games and find similarites all day long, true. You could compare Asheron's Call prior to the february patch and find similarities to other games, true. But that does not mean they are entirely the same... There are still things that make them unique and these things will still exist in Asheron's Call after the February Patch.

AC will not be a Rift, Aion, Wow, Swtor, or any other mmorpg clone after the february patch. I have played many of these games to end game. The combat, template, game mechanics, and what makes Asheron's Call the game it is will still exist and in my opinion is far different from any of these games. I fail to see how the condensed melee skills and introduction of new skills destroys the uniqueness of this game and is now all of a sudden like every other mmorpg.

In general I feel people are over reacting about this February patch. Simple crying "I quit", and acting like children will solve nothing. You have your chance to speak up and talk person to person with the AC team. Say what is on your mind. Do it, if you can provide solid feedback, the team will provide changes. This has been proven. The AC team is listening and changing the proposal often based on the communities feedback.

I agree with Hot Shot. You people that think AC is like all the other MMO's now are not even paying attention. AC has so many more differentiating factors. I never once in 12 years thought to myself that the weapon system is why i like AC. It was always something broken that we just looked past because of all the other cool things.

I suppose some anti-change people said the same thing when AC went away from the spell economy, or went away from the spell research system, or old school components. The point is that you don't make a change that makes sense just because there might be another game it reminds you of.

Currently you have people who are melee, missile, magic or hybrids.

After the February patch you will have people who are melee, missile, magic or hybrids.

This change doesn't even come close to suddenly making the game "class based". Class based games have limits on armor, damage, skills, weapons, etc. In AC you can still be a mage in max armor who uses a shield when he is in trouble. You cannot even come close to doing that in class based games.

Change isn't something to fear, it should be something that is expected.

Yes! Plus by freeing us of our mostly usless racial skills and adding to the spec cap the game is even more wide open from a character creation sense. If anything the Feb update moves us farther away from class based than we already are.

How is it different then those other MMO's past February?


We wont see strait UA player, instead now we will see a basic melee class with secondary skills. AKA a class/skill tree set-up. I'm not saying that isn't already the move now as I don't know to many people playing a one off toon class. The player base already seems to stick with what spec/trained set up works best. Back in the day I was the crazy fool who took ManaC and spec'ed it to be different then every other mage out there who went either just life spec, or War/Life, or Critter/Life.

You say its nothing alike... I say otherwise..

After playing every large MMO from Meridian 59 to SWTOR all I see is the movement from being different and custom to a movement of being simple or perhaps even to the terminology of being vanillia'ed(you WoW players will get that one).

Heavy Weapons: A 6/6 one handed melee combat skill based off Strength/Coordination.
Light Weapons: A 4/4 one handed melee combat skill based off Strength/Coordination.
Finesse Weapons: A 4/4 one handed melee combat skill based off Quickness/Coordination.


First lets go ahead and simplify this quote

All of the melee skills will be condensed into 3 new skills.
Heavy Weapons: meaning that large or heavy weapons can be used, they do greater damage but at the cost of slower speeds.
Light Weapons: meaning they are a little light on burden and gain more speed but loose the power of the heavier weapons.
Finesse Weapons: meaning they are extremely light on burden, do less damage but hit faster and more often then the light or heavy weapons.

Seeing as these go across all current melee skills(Sword, Mace, Axe, Staff, UA, Dagger, and Spear) this means there are now 3 classes of melees not 7 unique skills. NO MATTER HOW YOU WANT TO SAY IT THEY ARE CLASS SETS.

Someone using Finesse class, will also be using two of the 3 following "skill tree", Dual Wield, Sneak Attack , and Dirty Fighting. Now reading the "skill tree" aka new skills listed this reminds me of one class from WoW or Rift, the rouge.

Someone using the Heavy Weapons will also be using tow of the 3 following "skill tree", Dual Wield, Dirty Fighting, and Recklessness. Why? because reading the skill tree tells me these are one of the following base classes... Warrior, Death Knight, or Paladin.


Come February the only difference between AC and other MMO's will be the PK side of AC. At one point I would say housing as well but AC isn't the only MMO out there with player housing. The PK is only different because unlike the other large MMO's you can EVADE and resist inbound attacks from any level! The closest MMO with the PvP of AC is Darkfall, and its not really that great.


The original Classes,
Adventurer
Archer
Blademaster
Enchanter
Life Mage
Sorcerer
Vagabond
Warrior

The first change of classes,
Adventurer
Bow Hunter
Life Caster
Soldier
Swashbuckler
War Mage

The February change of classes,

**Sub Class
***Mage

I could go on and on... but whats the point. We all have our opinions and our own views and they all smell like ****.

Agreed.

Okay, I'll entertain that question. I can point out soooooo many differences. Hell watch a youtube video of Wow gameplay.. then watch a video of AC gameplay. They are different period. I'll try and point out large differences and what makes Asherons Call different from a game like World of Warcraft.


Unlike many other games of the genre characters are not locked into a specific class, and can even reallocate previously selected skills to acquire other skills later in the game.

For Example:
In Wow if you are a warrior you are a warrior and can not do the same things a "Druid" can.

In Asherons Call you can choose to be both. Simply train or spec, war magic and a melee combat skill. The choice is yours, and this choice remains after the february patch. You still have this freedom.


Many elements of Asheron's Call are radically different from most other MMORPGs. For example, Asheron's Call does not divide its world into different level zones. While some areas are much more dangerous to players than others, there is nonetheless a mix of different creatures types that creates much more unpredictability than is present in other games. Another key difference is that Asheron's Call does not use character level as the major determinant in the outcome of a combat. Level simply determines what skills are available, and it is the skills and equipment of players and creatures that determine the outcome. Whereas in many games a player will be able to move a cursor over an opponent and instantly know from their level whether they will be successful in combat, in Asheron's Call a character might be able to defeat much higher level foes or lose to much lower level ones, again depending upon one's skill choices and equipment. As with the absence of specific level zones, this creates a higher degree of unpredicatability than in most games of this type.


Other Huge difference:

~ Unlike most other games of the genre that draw upon existing fantasy fiction, most of Asheron's Call's creatures are original, unique creatures. Instead of elves and goblins there are the insect-like Olthoi, the cat-like humanoid Drudges, the giant grey-skinned humanoid Lugians and the reptilian Sclavus, to name a few.

~ The world itself is large at over 500 square miles. Unlike many other games in the genre, there are no zones. This means players can cross the world on foot without loading screens or invisible barriers and any terrain that can be seen in the distance was a real object in the world. It also had a much longer viewing distance then other games of the time, with mountains, bodies of water and other terrain being visible long before it was actually approached.

~ Asheron's Call features a unique allegiance and fealty system that creates formal links between players and rewards cooperative play.[3] A player of a lower level can swear allegiance to a player of a higher level, becoming a vassal of a patron. The patron earns a small percentage of the experience the vassal makes, while the vassal is motivated to seek a patron exchange for money, items, or protection.[6] In the words of one reviewer: "At worst, the allegiance system is a multilevel marketing scheme, whereby greedy, uncaring Patrons enlist as many Vassals as possible in order to gain large amounts of bonus experience. But at best, the allegiance system can provide a tightly knit companionship for players genuinely interested in helping others and developing an organized assembly."[7] Players may also join together in fellowships, temporarily splitting the experience they gain amongst themselves

~ Players attune themselves to lifestones. Upon losing all of their health players will be resurrected at the last lifestone they attuned themselves to, having lost half their pyreals, one or more valuable items, and temporarily losing a certain percentage of their primary and secondary statistics due what is known as a "vitae penalty".[5] The resurrected player may then go to the place the death occurred and recover the item(s) and pyreals from his or her corpse. If killed by another player the victor is allowed to take the dropped items from the vanquished player. The vitae penalty is removed by gaining a small amount of experience.

Many elements of Asheron's Call are radically different from most other MMORPGs. For example, Asheron's Call does not divide its world into different level zones. While some areas are much more dangerous to players than others, there is nonetheless a mix of different creatures types that creates much more unpredictability than is present in other games.







Should I stop there and allow you to rethink your response before I destroy the rest of it?

I mean for a game that you claim doesn't have level zones I can name a few places that require level 45+, 50+, 130+, 150+ along with a large collection of quests that require level 100+ or higher to either get to or even participate with. Same can be said for WoW, where on the two main land masses you can get to any city at level 1, if you want a lot of deaths. Once a few patches came out then there were a few spots on new land masses you couldn't get to till you reached the required level. You show me a level 1 on Caul, or Aerlinthe and your idea or statement then might be true(and I mostly point that to Aerlinthe or caul because well, those are the two oldest land masses known about and reachable within the first few months of the game).

I can still recall the days of the nude Obsidian runs, the winner was the last person running and that was before Tim was level 100! happy

Sorry, maybe I chose the wrong words. What I ment by this is for the most part you can walk across Dereth at any level. It is a open world. You can walk from town to town without hitting land barriers or load screens. But yes, there are certain areas with level restrictions.

But there you go, fixed. Continue please. Read away.

How is it different then those other MMO's past February?





Okay, I'll entertain that question. I can point out soooooo many differences. Hell watch a youtube video of Wow gameplay.. then watch a video of AC gameplay. They are different period. I'll try and point out large differences and what makes Asherons Call different from a game like World of Warcraft.


Unlike many other games of the genre characters are not locked into a specific class, and can even reallocate previously selected skills to acquire other skills later in the game.

For Example:
In Wow if you are a warrior you are a warrior and can not do the same things a "Druid" can.

In Asherons Call you can choose to be both. Simply train or spec, war magic and a melee combat skill. The choice is yours, and this choice remains after the february patch. You still have this freedom.


Many elements of Asheron's Call are radically different from most other MMORPGs. A key difference is that Asheron's Call does not use character level as the major determinant in the outcome of a combat. Level simply determines what skills are available, and it is the skills and equipment of players and creatures that determine the outcome. Whereas in many games a player will be able to move a cursor over an opponent and instantly know from their level whether they will be successful in combat, in Asheron's Call a character might be able to defeat much higher level foes or lose to much lower level ones, again depending upon one's skill choices and equipment. As with the absence of specific level zones, this creates a higher degree of unpredicatability than in most games of this type.


Other Huge difference:

~ Unlike most other games of the genre that draw upon existing fantasy fiction, most of Asheron's Call's creatures are original, unique creatures. Instead of elves and goblins there are the insect-like Olthoi, the cat-like humanoid Drudges, the giant grey-skinned humanoid Lugians and the reptilian Sclavus, to name a few.

Don't get me wrong Hot, I understand your view... however this is a move to do what every other MMO out there has done. That simple movement is to make everything equal... missile and mages have had access to all damage types forever... I mean really FOREVER. Where as when you played a melee you were always missing one or two damage types.

So now we will have(mage/missile) templates removed as they're not getting a change yet.(Only confirmed spec's listed)

Adventurer(make what you want how you want) Spec Lore, what ever else you want
Soldier: Spec] Lore, all melee weapons, Melee D
Swashbuckler: Spec] Lore, all melee weapons, Melee D
Wayfarer: Spec] Lore, all melee weapons, Lockpick

Do you see why I am saying AC is going to class based chars yet?

Lets use this from your post...

Hot_Shot posted:
For Example:
In Wow if you are a warrior you are a warrior and can not do the same things a "Druid" can.


While true from a few years ago, a well played and smart druid can do every single thing the warrior can do. My druid's on WoW could main tank, off tank, heal, and crowd control anywhere in the game. Open land, dungeons, and raids. Even now in vanilla WoW my Warrior can do everything my Druids can do thanks to dual spec'ing and maybe a future of tri-spec'ing.

In AC post February time, it wont matter what you pick as a profession if you go melee you can be Sword, Mace, Axe, Staff, UA, Dagger, Spear all on one char. No longer will anyone wanting to be a melee toon have to think what weapon do I need or want to use? because you can just have them all on one toon. Now all you have to think about is, do I want massive damage? mid damage but at a faster pace? or lots of weak damage but faster hitting? AC is going vanilla. There are no if, and, or what's about it.


As you can see, unlike others though... I am more then willing to wait and test it come Feb. I'm not going to threaten to quit over the change, I'm just concerned that the changes this big 12 years into a game that is already so low in population is a bad move. I'd rather see them break this game into the T2.0 and then modify it. Modifying code that is 20+ years old is just crazy, I feel this is more of a test bed move to try on another future game.

I'm not even argueing with what you are saying Drain. I am saying what is said here is BS.

I assure you I am aware of the changes to come and how they effect Asheron's Call. I have been following the development and providing my feedback and insight on AC forums.

AC will still be one of a kind after february patch. This is my arguement. It was nothing more or nothing less. I am not agrueing here in favor for the changes to come nor against.

If you want proof read my previous posts:

I don't understand how people can say this turns AC into "other" mmo's. Outside of AC I have little mmo experience but I did try AC2 and DaOC and they both sucked because they were nothing like AC. The others (and I'm assuming this is true of WoW and other current games) are very linear (and the worlds are small) instead of wide opened (with a huge world) like AC. They were very unforgiving of charcter types. A melee for example could only melee. In AC most of my melees are also master level magic users as well. In AC I can take on very large spawns in those other games soloing was no fun. In AC I can tink and tailor my armor and weapons any way I like. Those other games the physics always felt off. They were slow and the characters never felt solid or grounded. In AC I always feel totally on control of my characters while in the other games I never felt in control of my characters.

The feb changes give us more choice and more wide open creation options. The fact that they are adding new damage type skills only increases your chances for uniqueness and by unchaining us from our mostly useless racial skills and upping the spec cap we have even more template flexability to be a mage/melee/archer all at the same time which I don't think any other game offers.

Feb. does nothing to change our classes. There will soon after the patch be clear but ways to best streamline your temp for effectiveness. Then it will be just the same as it is now.

If you only PvM, you do this.

If you only PvP, you do this.

If you need a little of both, you do this.

Will it be fun for awhile figuring that all out, yes for sure.

Yeah

Also I hate to point out the obvious yet again...the graphics are not from 1999....

1999 Graphics:


2005:
"Throne of Destiny, which includes a graphics upgrade, new player race and new landmass was released on July 18, 2005. The entire graphics engine has been updated, with thousands of new textures and improvements to key models."

Difference before & after:


2010:
Landscape textures have been improved.
Landscape distance fog added.

Difference before & after:






Edit: Just for fun now compare this drudge to this drudge lol

1999:


2011:

I wish AC would just come out with a new game. The same mechanics of classic AC, but will all new graphics engine, 64bit support. Maybe a few stolen ideas, like the trade window, mail boxes for example. Leave out player housing, just guild mansions.
this is also a 'tag' so I can check out those maps when KK is back up and running.
