Attention Kindred!
« on: September 30, 2010, 11:11:18 PM »
Woah.... Gangrel!

It is now confirmed!   

CCP is in Alpha for the World of Darkness MMO! 

They put the tentative live-date in 2012 and will likely go beta in late 2011 (Just ONE SHORT YEAR!).

FINALLY I'll be able to do what I have always really wanted: to run around biting people WITHOUT getting arrested!  Bleah!  Bleah!  Bleah!

Details can be found here ->  http://www.massively.com/2010/09/24/world-of-darkness-confirmed-based-on-vampire-the-masquerade/

Update is dated 9/24/10
If it moves, shoot it!

1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.
6) BLOG ME!

Bloodlines singleplayer was good (though you had to download several patches to make it work right) If the mmo will be the same or batter, it might be worth trying it.

more to it, it will be based on VtM, WtA, and MtA and not on the lame VtR.

Plus, whitewolf is reissuing the old WoD pen 'n paper books. VtR has been abandoned (Yay!!!)
I'm a fan of all seven deadly sins, but concerning NCsoft, i'll stick with WRATH! So will all of my 14 chars!

Wait, so it's based on oWoD?
Although I liked how nWoD handled Toreador. I don't know anything else about it.

Quite frankly, though, I can't see how a WoD MMO might look. It definitely shouldn't be combat-centric, and as far as I care, WoD isn't really WoD if you don't roleplay.

Anyways... I call dibs on the hunter who relentlessly chases down vampire lolboiz and idiots who think they can drag Twilight crap into WoD.

They definately should made a human specialities available, such as, dunno, vampire hunter, for example, or some kind of law upholder. Of course  it would be cool to become a werewolf , who is another enemy to vampires.

Being based on new world of darkness you get a sort of racial power levels due to the way the system is balanced.

There are about 6 playable races in new world of darkness(old world of darkness had like 5 or sum thing? Which one was VPTM-Bloodlines based on again?), some of which can be further divided into sub types, but each race comes with their own book and campaigns, as their power level is sooo different you can't ever make a party of multiple races as the 1 player of the better race would automatically make the other guys useless.

Here's a list of the player races, I haven't personally ever tried the new WoD mage or Vamp, played 1 or 2 sessions as everything else.

Epic Raid boss: Promethean (Kinda like the Frankenstein monster, except smarter and able to use magic)
...
... (I can take on armies)
...
Boss: Werewolf
...
... (Drug lords fear me)
...
Named mob / Difficult Mission related mob: Changeling
...
... (I'm superhumanly dangerous)
...
Normal Mob: Vampire
...
... (I'm scarier without the gun)
...
Cannon fodder/easy mob: Mage / Goul / Other Type of Human ++
(Though mages are technically really dangerous since they usually have no combat skills except for the 1 super dangerous insta-kill attack, that requires they get a hair or drop of blood from their target and preform a 3 hour ritual on it... You can probably meet some mages is the game and get quests from them to bring them a hair or blood, I doubt the ritual ability would work as a combat ability, in the way WoD handles it.)
...
...
...
... (I'm a tough guy)
...
...
...
Instant kill roaming critter(like the TR geyser hopper): Human

I originally though this thread was about 'the secret world' thing funcom is developing, I think that one focuses on the human or human ++ powerlevel.
This one seems interesting too, using the vampire range of power, I hope it gets up to the level Troika made ts games at before they did bloodlines, then this would really be a great MMO.
