Griefing is what Fonline is all about.

"Roleplayers" are keeping Fonline alive, and it's really gay.
But they're needed until the content gets put in and lots of normal players start showing up.

Also, if it weren't for the RPers, there would be almost no one to grief.
And it's fun!

"i saw one guy suicide bomb 4 times in ncr today, he didnt have anyone with him, he was just doing it for kicks. laughing at everyone that got their hard earned hours of work loot deleted by the guards when freindly people nearby would most assuredly given back the gear that was dropped."

Thread about suicide bombing

These guys were just asking to get bombed, repeatedly


cheers!

Hellgate: London was probably the biggest waste of money on a game I've ever spent.

Okay, that was a lie, but it was still pretty bad.

I have played tons of mmorpgs and i really dont get why people like wow. I dont even see it as a real mmorpg, fucking runescape has more interactive world than wow.

If you want a real good mmorpg than try Ultima Online. Thats first mmorpg that started it all and all other mmorpgs are lame imitations of Ultima Online.

What sucks with wow and similar mmorpgs today is that every character that is played is same. Its about reaching levels by killing millions of monsters. There is no big differens in playing a mage or warrior. And worst part -crafting is completly pointless.

While Ultima Online has over 70 skills that you can max out to 120 skillpoints. And max a character can have is 700 skill points. That leaves with endless amount of combos of characters. You can be all from mage, warior to miner, tamer, tresurehunter. That means if you play a miner for example you dont have any combat skills. Your gameplay consists of mining and crafting weapons and selling them to warrior players.

Not to mention that uo has way many more features than most mmorpgs today have. Just things like building your own house or castle sims stile and opening a shop in your house.

Yes there is a skill called fishing in uo wich you can use on all shores for fishing, and you can buy a boat and sail around the world and fish. Sometimes you fish up ruble containing some rare stuff like tresure maps than you got to find a player that has a skill called cartography so he can make the map readable.

Are there sea monsters?

Is Ambrosia reachable?

In the sky, are there cloud castles?

Sounds like FE has taken a lot from this. It is also a very craft-happy game.

The only MMO I ever played was Ultima and Star Wars Galaxies both of which are not what they used to be. But I still like to hang out with old vets in SWG and remember the good times before NGE.

actually sailing around the world fishing seems like a pretty neat way to pass the time - if the world was fully realized (like buildings being built while you were gone and such) it would be cool to be gone from the land/city areas for 2 or 3 months, come back full of fish lewt, and see all the new stuff that was there.

Unfortunately, I doubt it'll happen with any of the current MMOs...

Just under 2 years now. Has it's ups and downs where I cbfed playing it, but train skills the in the background.

Yes, it got dumbed down in regards to character creation; not being able to chose your stats and see what skills you started with were terrible ideas.

my IGN is BlackHelmetMan, give me a yell I'll send some cash your way, etc.

I've been busy the last month. Harvest season and I was working in a wheat lab till Friday where I quit in a firey ball of rage. I'm travelling at the moment, and running out of clean underwear.

to put it into perspective, I basically jumped in the car with the clothes I was wearing and whatever clothes I had sitting in the car. Underwear amounted to what I was wearing and that was 3 days ago (I've been swimming in the ocean and getting shit faced icon_drunk since) and couldn't actually afford to buy any new underwear because the banks are shut and I have no cash (thus swimming in the ocean is awesome because it's FREE).

Never fear though, as I bought some new boxers today along with some socks. I am starting to recycle my old shirts since today though. pants in reuse tomorrow. icon_joy
