Hello, I'm new to the forum so I thought I would make my first post here. Two questions:

1. What Race will you use in game


2. I'm wondering if people using the same race could attack each other(In both mmo mode and skirmish).

1. Humans
2. Yes

I'll be playing random. Makes the game a little more spontaneous and fun when I don't know until the game actually starts who I'm going to be.

Definitely there will be mirror matches allowed. I've always found not allowing that a very stupid limitation.

Since Warcraft 3 I've always had a soft spot for Orcs.

Hopefully those presented in Dawn of Fantasy won't be the mindless savage Orcs you see in some other games. The thing that was most appealing about the Orc race to me from WC3 was their dire situation, and how they were shackled to the demons will for so long, but through perseverance managed to overcome that. They were strong, honorable warriors.

So I'm hoping I have a similar connection to the Orcs in DoF. Humans have never been my favorite, simply because I've never really held much respect for the human race. Elves are fine, but sometimes their a little stuck up, and their love for nature hinders them in some ways. Dragons on the other hand, I have too much appreciation for a uniform, conquering, manifest destiny style empire than I do for the all wise all knowing style.

And I respect Darvin for his willingness to play completely random, but again, something I could simply not do, because at the moment I love Orcs too much.

I will be playing humans for a while, though I may switch to the other races now and again to get a feel for them and what their capabilities are.

Yes, same-faction players will be able to attack each other.

Men
Dragons
Elves
Orcy-Porky

Cool, Im either going to use humans or dragons, probably dragons.
I would use humans because of balance and their forts and buildings.
I would use dragons because of their wisdom, overall coolness, and the dragons flying over walls and opening the door.

Thanks for the answers guys, really appreciate it.

I believe that humans are suppose to be an all around faction, which is why i included them in my (Short) list. It probobly says so on thier website.

www.dawnoffantasy.com


Another question, two actually:

1. Will their be a subscription for the game?

2. Any idea on system requirements for the game?


Thanks in advace.

1. No, however we are considering a "pay for perks" program that will eliminate those gold scams you see on other games like WoW or GuildWars.

2. Nothing finalized yet. In it's current state DoF has very high system requirements, this however will be toned down as we optimize the game.

Silent_Lamb
11-08-2007, 01:45 PM
I wonder how it will work. If they randomly select people, or do Fileplanet subscribers only sort of thing. The second one is a little frustrating, I'm not saying there going to do it but it's a little frustrating having to pay to get access to a beta.

As far as i know it wont be Fileplanet subscribers or any service like that.

Ryan Zelazny

The thing that was most appealing about the Orc race to me from WC3 was their dire situation, and how they were shackled to the demons will for so long, but through perseverance managed to overcome that. They were strong, honorable warriors.


Considering how one of the Reverie guys said that orcs will have extremely bad accuracy, I'm assuming they will be dumb massing units as always. It was neat to have WC3 Orcs as they were. The Orc Story was an interesting and exciting facet to the whole thing, made possible by that approach. Warcraft III was made for that approach however, especially with the small group combat style. Orcs were expensive creatures in that game.
But it's just an assumption for this game.

Anyways, I will be playing the race with the least amount of management requirements. In other words, ORKCZESSS. Humans sound good too. I tend to defend first and attack later so I'll be having this huge fortress with tons of archers behind its great walls.

Sometimes that doesn't always work.

Darvin
11-26-2007, 08:47 PM
Orcs in the warcraft universe have always been portrayed as super-tough, letting their sheer strength and resilience do what sharpened steel and thick armour does for the humans. The warcraft orcs actually seem much more believable than the "Tolkien" style orcs that have no real skill, strength, or endurance, just numbers. They strike a great balance between recklessness and discipline, and have the physical might to back it up.

You know what I totally disagree personaly; I like the Tolkien Orcs better then any other. I like how they 'grow' in mud, that’s cool, they sort of look like mud anyways in lotr, heh.

Anyways I change my choice, I'll want to be a elven player, there awsome. 'Their all hippies with swords and bows!' ;) kidding.

Darvin
11-27-2007, 10:40 AM
The "orcs grow in mud" thing is a misconception created by the movies. They breed much like any other animal. Orcs in Tolkien's writings have basically no skill, are rather weak and fragile, but have massive numbers and complete and total fanaticism to their advantage.

The Witch King of Angmar
11-27-2007, 01:40 PM
But Darvin certain orcs like Shagrat and Ugluk were very powerful and ruthless in discipline as well.

Darvin
11-27-2007, 04:35 PM
There is evidence to suggest that some orcs were descended from fallen maiar (ie, weak balrogs). Those would be much stronger, and have vastly extended lifespans. Orcs within two or three generations of a maiar could live for thousands of years. Even if that theory is incorrect, orcs are bound to vary amongst each other, so some are bound to be stronger/smarter/better than others. Finally, I wouldn't call them disciplined, unless you count slaughtering each other's forces and then quickly running off to Barad-dur to be the first to tell on the other.

The Witch King of Angmar
11-27-2007, 06:12 PM
You got a point but you never saw a rebellion from them or a major uproar even though they were treated like crap.

Zaerun
11-27-2007, 09:42 PM
I would start as Humans, then if Dwarfs are implemented in an expansion, I would switch to them. Long live the stout-folk!:)

Puppeteer
11-30-2007, 02:47 PM
So we're settled that Orcs is a race of weak but fiercely devoted warriors. Simpletons. Hmm.
Log live the dead folk, if an expansion shows them. They better be done properly ;)

Ive always liked playing the most evil/dark faction there is.. i'd love to play with undead for example.. but orcs aren't my thing.. although they're quite nice in lord of te rings. Dragons are awesome aswell.. simply due to their size. Elves are always an interesting race in any fantasy game imo.. might try them. As you can clearly see I haven't made up my mind.. and I'm new here :D

Hi Puppet :)

I'm also looking forward to what comes with the dragon faction, there is so many possibilities for them in my mind it could be anything. As long as its not all flying units i'll be happy, they need plenty of ground units as well to make a fortress worthwhile.

Only three units fly I believe, and the main part of your army will be made of drakes (think dragonlance draconians) and other lesser draconic races.

Unless you don't like alliances... I already chose my city on the map, I will control the skies and I will have a strong Navy

I said no woman, child or hatchling (regardless of race) will be spared. Not even my own. After I'm done gorging on the mutilated carcasses of everyone else's units I'll slaughter all my units too.

Although I might need to form a temporary alliance with some foolish...errr, highly intelligent and wise leader of another faction. We'll see...

Or maybe I'll just play elves as originally planned. :p

I'm curious about orcs now with the released info about them having their standard ranged unit, also be one of their primary food producers. I'm wondering if they'll have other units that will have multiple uses like that. Means they have to produce fewer workers that way.

1. What Race will you use in game
Dragons (also my schools mascot!)

2. I'm wondering if people using the same race could attack each other(In both mmo mode and skirmish)

Hope so, to a degree. If the races could attack eachother then that leads to a sort of civil war within each faction but if they do not then it creates a 1v1v1v1 (shattered galaxy (http://www.shatteredgalaxy.com/)). Ups and downs to that.

Yes, you can and will actually be fighting armies of the same race, if you look at the world map there are multiple regions, and these regions clash quite a bit. for example: The region of The Wold home to the Menthorn are very ill towards Dagbor, land of Southmount.

Anyways, Yes, any factions can attack any faction online or offline.

Heheheh, i've never seen defense win an RTS. In fact generally the more mobile your force/strength the better, defense isn't as important if you use your offense as a defense as well. Gooo orcs (and our lack of fortifications) Defense is a stall tactic that prolongs the game after you have already lost, that's it.

Puppeteer
07-12-2009, 05:08 PM
Doesn't appear to be in this game. An impenetrable fortress requires strategic use of siege tactics. I think a balance would come up trumps in this game.

Aametherar
07-12-2009, 05:17 PM
I agree defenses can help, but if you're spending more on defense for that fortress it leaves you with less offense/mobile force which can really put you in a bind against superior forces. Of course as you mentioned this is where tactics and strategy begin to play a large part. The only way I see it being viable is if your goal is to stall the enemy on a timer til the battle is over (which it seems may be a viable tactic in this game when attacked, at least in the MMO mode). I just hope that when it comes down to that and MMO mode it's not stacked too high in defenders favor to the point where people just stop attacking.

Josh Warner
07-12-2009, 06:01 PM
Defenses won't matter much in 1v1, and depending on map size (distance between team mates) it will decide whether a surprise combined attack wins the game or you last long enough with minimal damage for allies to help you. Personally I hope that you can survive for a fair amount of time on your own, but balanced so that secondary income cannot be protected and over time it'll hurt a lot if you're forced to turtle up. ie; actual siege tactics.

Darathor
07-12-2009, 06:53 PM
I generally go for good defenses but have a small/medium force outside my fort in defensible or hidden areas to fight or ambush an approaching force. I really like use hit and run tactics which are generally better when using ranged weapons. That's why I choose elves a lot, and I choose them a lot because I like elves.:)

I love forcing enemies to turtle up, it's the best tactic imo. Safe and effective. I've played various RTS games 3v3 where my team forced the enemy to turtle up then starved them out to the point they gave up due to lack of resources without us even having to hit them. Like I said, the best defense is a good offense.

Same for the most part. Aggressive build routines and playstyle ie; rushing wins most matches in the vast majority of games. I do hope there is a viable primary defense partial econ that allows the all out rush to be stopped dead however. The problem with rushing in most games I find is that it becomes the end all be all of strategies. A good rusher will beat anything but another rush unless the map is very large pretty much always. It's difficult to find a balance that doesn't make rushing totally ineffective.

It's difficult to find a balance that doesn't make rushing totally ineffective.

When you get to the upper tiers in gaming you rarely see pure rush strats, and when you do they're very heard pressed to win as against another player of equal or superior caliber can do the exact same thing with less travel time. A good rusher stops before hitting the enemy town and forces them to turtle up with light harassment (and heavy if the enemy tries to expand) less travel time than full out rushing an enemy town. Once you expand and prevent them from expanding for a long enough time it's game over. Like I said, I <3 that strategy. It'l work in this game just as well even if a player starts with static defenses (towers/walls) because again, you don't have to rush into the enemy town you just have to prevent them from getting out.

I do agree though, some decent static defense might add an element and teach rushers a bit more strategy (at least to the point where it's near impossible to actually harass a players starting production), but it won't stop some rushing tactic or another I guarantee you that.

My hope is again that the secondary econ points small or large investment - take a long time to see a return on that investment to prevent an early game denial rush from deciding the game 5 minutes in like I can almost always do. I haven't played many games where I didn't know if I would win or not after just a few minutes. If the starter econ is powerful enough and the investments on increasing it are good, as well as the defenses being powerful then it'll be good. You'll have to slowly expand and make sure you can defend those expansions instead of just relying on mass expansion after the initial denial and sitting back while your economy alone dominates your opponent. I've been the best, literally, in several games over the years and competitive in most that I play. And I see the same story repeated almost always. As someone who plays solely to win, to a level that is borderline OCD, I just hope rushing isn't going to be the cornerstone. I spend more time perfecting my build order, map memorization and ideal counter numbers/setup for whatever my opponent has than I'd ever care to admit.

Yup, most people don't realize RTS's are about math more than anything else, once you get the math down you can dominate most players with little effort, it seems the average player will get the first 1-5 buildings down in proper order off copying skilled players, but beyond that they don't realize the whole game through is 1 giant math problem to be solved better than your opponent.

If possible I'll have one MMORTS account for each race to allow me to roll with the swings of the nerf bat that is inevitable in all new games, especially since there's no better way to know how to beat a race than by playing it extensively, destroy them from within so to speak ;) I'm afraid I have a soft spot for bland old humans though, I'll be trying them first. It's probably a safe bet that orcs will have the best early game though, I'll be taking a close look at them to be sure. Elves will be a very distant last.

And yes, the fact that RTSes are a very complex and evolving math problem is why I enjoy them so much, definitely. I look forward to playing you as well, Orc.

I'm not entirely sure who im going to pick think i need to try them all out first. I have a feeling (and hope) that the races will be done diffrently then in most games out there. I think i might start off with humans because as a rule they're usually the easiest to get use to, maybe because we are humans? I was also wondering if some sort of morality has been drawn into the Dawn of Fantasy universe what i mean is are orcs evil or just tribalistic, are elves just and nice or are they just more intune with nature?

On another note i see Sparrow hasnt been ridden off by a mob thats nice ... I guess :P

I will play orcs mostly, their bestial nature and raw power contrasts the softened state and physical apathy -in many cases atrophy- that has come to afflict such a large proportion of us in the "developed" world.

1. Human. Dwarves as soon it's possible!

2. Depend of races: yes for human, NO for dwarves (or hard to do)

It seems to me that Sparrow is gone again I think.

Elves seem to me like they just want to protect their homeland.
Humans are, well, humans, full of strife and differing ideas.
Orcs just want to smash stuff i.e. people's faces.

I think that some elves want to slaughter all the orcs and most humans, though, and they will mount many campaigns to do so. So assuming that, orcs are the "pure" race in the sense that they know what they want.:D

Yes, pure orcs! Smash smash!

I'll probably choose elves! I've had a soft spot for the elves ever since I played Spell Force.

Looking at it either the humans or the elves. Thoose casteles are amazing and i always like playing the technical side of things. Where i can sit behind a wall for a while before counter attacking. Make them take the losses and hit them before they can hit me back :P

Got to love it!!!

I will most likely be orc. Ever since I got Oblivion ive loved orcs for some reason. Hopefully the orcs in DoF aren't stupid and bloodthirsty like in some games. I like it better when they are portayed more like ugly, hefty versions of humans.

My orcs will burn and pillage all the lands they find.

09-21-2009, 02:54 AM
lol i have a feeling the orcs are the most mobile of the races. Edging on nomadic in there pursuit of survival. they are more focused on pillaging and raiding then building up larger well built city's/ should make for a intresting style.

09-21-2009, 01:07 PM
probably gonna be elven or human. the most defensive one probably

09-21-2009, 06:03 PM
I will play as orc because Orcs are one of the most strongest races on Earth, I mean like look at all the games with orcs in it, the orcs OWN!

Henry Martin
09-22-2009, 09:15 PM
I would play as the humans, but would try all three.

Humans are the most defensive of all races but elves from what i have seen will have the edge in later gameplay with stronger more elite units. or that is what impression i have got anyway. Humans have the largest focus on technology and therefore will be the best race for turtiling as they will have the best defensive structures and there units are more disaplineed and will act more like legions of romans.

Therefore i think the humans are for me;)

Henry Martin
09-23-2009, 09:03 AM
I'm probably blind, but I there a thread that describes each of the races?

I think humans will take the usual RTS style... They get stronger as they progress... Their units are not particularly great, but their technology and bulidings are good and in later periods they become extremely strong due to their walls and such... However this may not be how it is for DoF

I would choose men, with orcs a close second. I hate pointy eared elves.

You sound like Gollum from Lotr:p I reckon that either Elves or Orcs will be best, they seem more flexible then men.

Really? Well you can make yourself part of the Elf sect using the User cp.
1. Click on User CP on the Tool Bar.

2. Look on the left hand side under miscellanious, you will find Group Memberships, click that.

3. Select one of the sects, and hit "Join Group"

4. You may have to select it as your "Active Group", for it to change your title and username color.

Then you can be an Elf :p.

True i beelive thqat will be the case. Although i beleive they will be the race you would prefer to meet in a pitched battle than on the gates of there castles. The technology may evenbe intresting as it could counter to some extent the affect of a mage (to which i beleive the elves will have the strongest).
