So basicly, you have seen nothing, as I doubt you did a dungeon with just two people.
No, i did not play a dungeon.
Are you telling me that this map is all about the dungeon and that the rest is not suppost to be fun and enjoyable?
Like, play the dungeons or its boring? Well, if thats true, you really should work on it..
So ... you can reinvent the wheel? I really wanna see that.
I, personally, am fine just creating a wheel of very high quality that is fun to ride on, instead of trying to change its shape.
And besides ... I really like how people can judge the content of rpgs from playing like 3 minutes.
Yeah, but your wheel seems to be all about visual and not about useability.
Try to make it feel better insted of making it look awesome and thats it.
And i did not play for 3 minutes. I have played this a several times.
First i did it a few months ago, but at that time the freaking map gave a server split while playing multiplayer, so you could just play alone.
Now i played the map again, and it did not really impress me at all when playing alone.
You start the map, you have no idea where you are, you just are there, and are suppost to kill some wolfs for some reason. No story at all, it just starts.
And even worse, as a thief, if you did not get lucky hits, you would die without being able to kill a single wolf when you were alone, that really makes me feel that i want to continue playing.
So i asked a friend to play, and we did. We reached level 6 and 7.
Then we got bored becouse nothing happened, it was just the standard "kill that unit, return to me. Now kill that unit and return to him. Then go talk to that guy".
That was everything you did.
There was nothing at all that makes you wanna continue to play.
And dont think that i just say this out of nowhere, i am a big RPG fan and i have played RPGs (real games and warcraft 3 maps) for about 9 years now.
No 4-5 hours content means you run though all of it there is no point with staying on a place for a long time thats completly wrong what your saying sry.
"all of it". Have you ever thought of the fact that there is not much areas.
The map is small like hell actually. It just feels bigger becouse you stay at the very same area for a while and killt he same unit. And then repeat the process in a new area.
This map is not big, no matter how long it takes to do the quest in this small area, it still have the same size.
Well im sry but thats also completly wrong what you are talking about we wanted do a team based orpg for the Bnet, and thats what we did the map is just meant to be played with a minimum of 3 players and thats no problem in the Bnet you find even more for a party. Thats the point which really much fans like on it that its team based unlike nearly evry othere rpg. If you want to play a singel player map your not right with gaias orpg.
Anyway we made it also possibel to play it even allone if your grinding something for exampel. its np to do something allone then you meet your party again and you slay some Bosses.
When did you mention in the description that this is a team based ORPG for a full group, otherwise the map is boring with capital letters? You did not.
When the map said that it was from 1 player and not 2, like it is in all other ORPGs in warcraft 3, i actually expected it to be playable with 1 player, and with playable i mean like, you do not have to get lucky hits at the beggining to actually kill a unit.
And you are very wrong when you say that this is team based unlike nearly every other rpg
. That is just so wrong. This is like most other RPGs. You must have a team to be able to kill a wolf or even a damn rat alone. If this map is from 3 players, why didnt it say so, i expected it to be from 1 player becouse that is what it says.
Yea thats meaned to be so its still an alpha and in terms of storyline there is not really much thats true.
I dont know if you know how to build a right storyline,
in our case we are building a logical and real storyline ( well we try to ), and at the starting area the Hero just is not a strong guy which knows whats going on, this is leading slowly in to the stroryline and the charrackter becomes stronger while that, this means the story is in this alpha far away from completed.
Yes i know how to make a storyline, i used to spend my free time writing storys a few years ago, it was a part of my free time, i loved to do so. As i am a map developer myself, i figured that i would need to know how to make an actual story for the map.
And the problem with this is that the map have been out for quite a while, and it seems like there is no process with the story? more content appears, but the story stays at the same place as before.
Also, here is a tip:
Only becouse the hero you play does not know whats going on, maybe the player wants to know anything about whats going on.
Most games usually have an opening cinematic or something that gets you into the story, or just have plain text that fade over the screen where you can read about the past and why things is going on, etc.
Currently this map have nothing of that, so it feels like the map isnt builded about a story at all?
Well first thanks (im working pretty much on the terrain).
Sry but thats really wrong >_< i guess you cant know it if you just played a bit allone and with 1 friend.
It is really like i said and plz dont try to say something against that this map is meant to be played with minimum of 3 players! ok?
Thats the point most fans like, because the most othere rpg's i know out there are not really team based.
And unlike you say this map is much about gameplay.
Well i think i expected from this comment more then what i readed
I thought there would come something interisting for me where i can really say obvious yea guy thats right what you say we should change that/ we should implement that.
This is like other RPGs. I have yet seen anything at all that makes this map unique from others and is something related to actually gameplay.
There is quests and dungeons like most other RPGs.
May i ask what this map have that makes it so unique? I dont know, and i really want to know.
And everything i say is based on fact, so i can say things against this map if i have a valid reason to do so. If you do not want feedback from people, then i dont know what.. I am simply telling you what it is with this map that could be improved and whats bad about it, but insted of trying to improve it, it just feels like you try to do some kind of counter attack on me or something by mentioning something else and just forget about making things better, and i am serious.
And what RPGs are you talking about when you say that most rpgs isnt team based?
according to me, the most of them is team based...
TKoK is a perfect example of this. It have gameplay, visuals & is purely team based.
