"Nudity, gore, and insanity effects are all par for the course."

All that and pure PvP? I can imagine the "Barrens chat" already!

Pass.

I know what you mean. I shudder everytime I think of what happened in AoC when they went FTP and the kiddies can see boobies for the first time in their lives. That chat is unbearable.

Can't imagine what it would be like in a game like this.. probably 10x worse.

The funny thing is the CCP somehow thinks by putting this in, they will attract the "mature" crowd. I think whoever runs this company must have spent so much time in deepspace that their brain froze.

It's possible to go a bit further and imagine Moonguard equivalent. Anyone who is not familiar with phenomenon can check out this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIsIHgVWP7g

No, actually I'm pretty sure CCP thinks that by putting this in they'll best be able to match the mood and atmosphere set by the source material.

This, among many other reasons, is why they are paid to develop games and we pay them for the privilege of experiencing them. Because they actually know what they're doing.

Evidence suggests that some decisions made in EVE of late that CCP may infact not know what they're doing. I am sure that has many worried for the future incarnation this game...

...but I digress; I agree with the gist of your arguement though.

Never said they were perfect (no one is, obviously), but for the most part these people have very good reasons for the things they do.

@Seffrid according to someone from the forums of White Wolf who was at the TGM they said the nudity was only in your Haven not in public places.

* Nudity: Yes, your character can get disrobed. However, you can't do so in public places. They said that if your want to get naked, you can do so in your Haven. Speaking of which:

* Havens. They also said that if you get tired of griefers griefing you, you can ditch them and go back to your Haven, implying that it's possibly at least somewhat sacrosanct."

He has 2 posts with info in that link,I would copy all here but would be a pretty big wall of text so just go there if you want to read more.

I don't think there is any good reason for example of pricing a cash shop item at $80 that fits over your character's one eye that can't be "seen" for 99% of the game's activities. So I'll have to agree to disagree on that point.

Like I just said, they're not perfect. The cosmetic clothes was fine, the specifics on some of the pricing wasn't.

From WoDNews: 'They are aware the WoD is is a adult setting and the devs are going to not shy away from gore, blood and nudity. However such will have a reason and not adult content for the sake of adult content.'

In other words, nuh-UH!

EVE has been running for 8 years and in that time I can think of only one time that CCP has induced a significant amount of nerdrage among the community.

Yes, I'd say they do know what they're doing.

Think harder. CCP have presided over about a half dozen cluster fcuk fiascos - they manange one every 18 months or so. And they've been getting steadily worse.

This had been on my radar for a while, but 'desire to emulate LARPing' has me very very cautious now. I remain hopefully optimistic, but very concerned by that bit.

Metaplot oh dear I'm already turned off given what they tend to do with their LARP fanclubs metaplots.

@Addfwyn If they pull it off, MMOLARPing could be huge with the World of Darkness fanbase. It could also be a chance to start branching into different types of MMO playstyles.

@Furdinand Sure, it could be huge for that fanbase, but a huge turn off for a mainstream audience. LARPers to me are sort of like Furries. I accept that they exist, I'm glad that they have something that makes them happy in life, but it's the last thing in the world that I want to be around.

I think a lot of more mainstream gamers would feel the same way, though a few would probably get into it.

Wait, it sounds like they might be trying to set up a system that encourages actual roleplaying within the setting?

That is clearly unacceptable.
