Glad to keep reading positive info about your experiences in FE. Your initial "Choose your own adventure" story led me to check out the game and make the up-grade to subscriber.

Been loving it ever since.

OK....so I have been reading this web-site for almost 3 months now, and I am really loving it! It is right up my alley since I only currently am playing 1 MMO, Lotro, and thanks to this site, can read about all the other games I am missing out on. Well, I just decided, like, oh, 4 hours ago, to check out Fallen Earth. This would be my 2nd MMO that I would be playing.

My question is how active are the players in this game? And how large are the populations in this game? Is it comparable to LOTRO, where there are always people running around doing something, but it isn't insanely overcrowded like WOW is, or is it deserted like SW:Galaxies seems to be now adays? I am curious about this because if this game is not taking off enough to have a decent user base playing, I don't want to take away my limited gaming time from LOTRO to invest in this game. Any thoughts would be GREAT!!

Dan:

Honestly, it is more along the lines of SWG, though there is only one server world, so everyone who is on is in the same "world".

The lands of Fe are vast and not easily explored, adding to the wasteland feel, but there is no "fast travel" option. You run or ride a mount/vehicle everywhere you go. There are not many instanced areas and almost no load screen present after initially logging in.

Its definitely worth checking out for the free trial. Just make sure to read the manual (PDF form is available when you download the game) and do the extended tutorial. There is also a VERY helpful community in game with GMs that are almost always present in some form for instant help or answers to questions.

I have no idea on the actual populatiuon of the game, but there is almost always someone running around.

Anyway, check it out, not much to lose. :D

Well,

I will definitely check out the trial for the 10 days. I love the idea of this game, post apocalyptic type game environment.....but again, I refuse to invest my time into a game that will not keep me interested for a long time! So, trials are awesome and I plan to do just that....trial it :)

I read Massively's articles on Fallen Earth all the time, and it has piqued my interest and left me to download the trial of the game. The problem is... the installer won't finish "corrolating data" and "updating" or whatever the devil it's doing. After seriously trying to update for a week, I finally gave up. It's too bad, I was really looking forward to having some adventures of my own...

I ran into this when I first got FE, where it would get stuck on collating data...in my case it was my router. If you are behind a router or firewall, I would check the tech support page for port info and open those up. It now takes like 15 seconds to load into the game unless there is an update.

I have been playing fallen earth for 2 months now. I have an enforcer and a tech love them both. I came here from playing SWG were I was a crafter for 6 years. I just learned of this site today when they made an announcement about the party. I don't pay much attenchion to most announcements but a party caught my eye. I realy like this game the maps are so big that to go from mumford to picus on horseback will take about an hour real time. You can go for a week and not see the same people but there is always the loudmoth in region chat you always see. Yes pvp need work but the crafting is great and the over all game play is good. Lots of help everywere you look in the game and I have met some new friends. one that lives in Scotland who I would have never met in real life. but if your looking for a game that has alot to offer you should try Fallen Earth.

Massively put me onto this game about 6 weeks ago after hearing all the good things about it. I just love the crafting, seamless world and the fact it's a sandbox.

It can be very daunting and a complete information overload when you start.
You can log and do as little or as much as your like and to be honest its one of the only MMO's that i don't feel the need to level to max as quickly as possible, just enjoy the ride and do whatever you want .

I remember Massively having a write up on new "focused content". Where a correspondent gives us news on what is going on in-game in selected titles. I'd like to vote that "Fallen Earth" be included in that and that Shawn be allowed to be that correspondent. I would Love to read about the "Rolling Clones" all the way to Sector 3 and past it : )
