Glad to see our media drive is paying out. We have finally started releasing our media to the general gaming community.

As for the beta - we can`t wait as well. We - developers, want to enjoy some quality mmorts time as much as you guys, and that`s just not happening until the first closed stages of public testing start. We are trying our best to make it happen in June.

Seeing how we only have a devoted bunch of fans, everyone with a forum account will be automatically registered for closed-testing. A

I'm pretty sure we're all still noobs but the trailer sure did bring in a lot of new people which can only be good for the game. :)

Where is the new trailer at? Or is it the old one where that dude with way too much enthusiasm is talking?

This is true, of course... Though my own personal brand of cynicism dictates that there are a great many noobs who simply wish to play the beta as an early run through, talk piles of smelly bull loads, then the developer makes the grand mistake of listening to them and we, the consciencious gamers, end up with a generic game while the noobs responsible promtply B*gg*r off!

This has happened all too often. Though thankfully, that's generally the Open Beta phase, since said noobs won't put in the time and effort to give their input before hand and hence even look like worthwhile members of the community...

Yes! I do have much rage over this, since too many games have gone down this road and lost their depth to public *****ing. Please please please don't lose your vision, Reverie!

Ahah! I hadn't realised the significance of the spelling, and therefore differing definitions of the Noob/Newb 'lingo'

To which I must now say you're all a bunch of Newbs! :p

Myself included... Roll on DoF!

Newb and Noob both come from the root "Newbie", which simply means someone who is new to the game. Everyone's a newbie originally, it's not really a bad thing. Generally "newb" is regarded as shorthand for newbie and the meaning is the same. "Noob" however has taken on the negative connotations of the word, meaning someone who plays as if they have no experience in the game. Often "noob" is used as a derogatory term for no other reason than to put down the player. As such, I avoid that particular spelling.

There are also other spellings, like "nub", but generally they fall under the category of the "noob" spelling of the word.

I am looking forward to reviewing this - we will be covering it in full. I am after more persistence info and balancing too, but graphically the game looks great - the latest games in development are going to fully squash the mantra that MMORTS cannot look damn good.

Who doesn't? Seriously, the dragon faction (hey it rhymes :D ) is going to be powerful, why else would they be hiding it so much? Unless they aren't close to finishing it of course.

Why do I say it will be powerful? Well it's because of the air to ground combat. They will probally be able to fly drakes into the city, burn down everything underneath them, and be uber awesome! :D

jackeeboi
04-19-2008, 12:08 PM
tbh i dont think there will be any flying unless every race can do it becuase it will badly unbalence the game(sorry for spelling)

I have to agree with you on this. If one faction has flying units and the others dont, will give a bad balance between them. the flying units could go around defences and over rivers and such and the others would not be able to.

WearisomeWall
04-19-2008, 01:48 PM
Flying units could be balanced. They would have to be very vulnerable to archer/ranged fire is all.

Belgarion123
04-19-2008, 01:54 PM
True but they can still fly around... or maby not... we still do not know about them. The developers will most likly make them ground based... Or so I think...

LordSlayer

It won't be imbalenced if the dragons can be killed by armies of archers before they can do any damage.:D

As well as a good defense and alot of arrows. :D

Puppeteer
04-20-2008, 01:59 PM
I doubt most of the arrows would hit smaller flying dragons, and the larger ones would have thick scales ALBEIT a weak udnerbelly.
I suspect that the Dragon's are the producers favourite faction and willd devote their workers/private people to beta it.

The Witch King of Angmar

That's why I'd love to play the beta for exclusive use of the dragons. Hopefully Reverie reveals only a little about them so that we can be suprised with the finished product.

There's no concept of real dragons. The closest thing you've got is of the Komodo Variety, which leaves a lot for the imagination. Dragons can be anything you want, no one has defined what they are officially.

Well almost all dragons can fly (even the wingless asian ones) and most occidental dragons breathe fire or some other nasty substance :D

Puppeteer
04-22-2008, 09:57 AM
Uh-huh. And who defined it? Dragons can be flightless or fireless, it's up to the designers not some generic definition. Though I'm in favour of flying-fire-breathing, my point is it's up to the imagination as no one can define them infallibly.

Well there are different people who defined dragons.

European dragons were defined by some king.
Chinese dragons were defined by someone from the Ying (or however you spell it) dynasty.
Leviathan dragons (which aren't really dragons) were defined by the bible.
I forget lindworms and frost dragons, but they were both defined by the same person who made up the pheonix myth.

Weren't they defined after some Saint supposedly killed one to save a town?

No, the king defined it about 200 years before that, the Saint just made the myth about killing one.

If what you say is true, then it's probably not even the Saint that made the myth, but probably some follower a few decades later.

Puppeteer
04-27-2008, 09:27 AM
I'm not saying a dragonfly. Not the type after it. Seeing as we know so little about them, we just have to speculate and so what I would like to see would be these large dragonfly type units. Essentially just a serpent body with 4 wings. You never know.
And how would a normal (my norm, so western dragon) dragon defend itself? Either firey-breath, long claws, big teeth etc. anything really.
