Re: Ladders and competitive play.

I know I am very much for having the leaderboards, and I really came off strong with that. I would like to clarify to chin and everyone else that I think that leaderboards would be a great "value-added" thing, since they are not necessary for sandbox games. They can just help make sense of...

Statistics in a game like this show objective truths of dominance than word of mouth. Some people will obsess over them. Some people will ignore them altogether. Others still, will find them useful to better their game playing. And another set of people may simply enjoy seeing the top characters in ...

Re: Ladders and competitive play.

This is a competitive game though. Stats are good for this game because it shows progression of all players I was under impression that this was supposed to be a sandbox mmo, not another moba, where people will drop out of game lobbies if they know they might loose, just to preserve their precious ...

Re: New Weapon & Armor Abilities: First Draft

I really like the emphasis on teamwork to complete actions. This, I feel, has been lacking in a lot of games.

Re: My Check List for GG

I honestly find the direction of Das Tal refreshing, considering the genre. I am glad that you are taking into account the fact that if you just restrict chat, people will use external means. I see that happen all the time, and there are programs like RaidCall (which is awful) built specifically to ...

Re: Ladders and competitive play.

I wrote a little more about this in the blog: http://www.das-tal-game.com/post/100246603521/design-draft-elegance-and-efficiency-in-competitive I like that it helps promote the idea that "biggest isn't always best" like some MMOs seem to be riddled with. My crew and I tend to like to stay...

Re: Cosmetic Items

I like the idea of different weapon and armor effects, as well as tombstone/corpse, dancing! Though, I think I would go for any and all of these. Custom clan logo I think, would be a must. :D

Re: VFX Sneak Peek

I second the look! It is quite awesome and far better than the pretty standard dust cloud / warping effect. :D
