Tabula Rasa beta is go

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Any one else in the beta for it and found some thing good to report?

I think pvp in this game might be fun, its a twitch "third person shooter". Kind of feels like I am back in the 80's at an arcade but with better graphics. You put your cross hairs on your target and shoot, but even if you are aiming right on target your target gets a chance to evade...I thought that was kind of lame till I started evading shots.

Right now going melee is the best since it is a one shot kill on every thing I've hit. I can empty a whole mag into some thing and have still come after me but if I kick it once it's dead.

My only real complaint is that you don't loot any thing. You kill it and it lays there but there is nothing but XP to gain from the kill. I don't think there is even money in the game. All weapon and armor upgrades come from quests to kill critters or capture control points. I really don't see how they can call it an MMO...or is Battle Field considered a MMO as well?

Absolutely not. MMOs typically have two recognizable elements:

1. Much larger simultaneous user bases in a single world than you will find in an arena based FPS game like Battlefield. It it isn't at least measured in hundreds, I have a hard time calling it "massively" multilpayer.

2. Although the term is not explicitly mentioned much anymore, I think most people would agree that a degree of persistence is expected with all MMOs. When you log out, the world goes on without you...and when you return, all your accomplishments and stuff remain. I don't mean lame "achievements" either, scoring enough points to earn a "General" rank that stays with you when you log in next time is not persistence. I mean, if you put a sword in a chest, it's still there when you log back in tomorrow. Technologically, these aren't too far apart; but contextually, it's very different.

I can't wait for this game to take over my life like WoW has done to so many others before me.

LOL...I was trying to be sarcastic there. But I still don't really see it being an MMO. Still a fun game though. I haven't even looked at the game's web site in several months and then out of the blue I get an invite to the beta. I know this game looked very nice in last year's E3 highlights. So I will be trying it some more...plus I have a duty as a beta tester to find and report bugs and I take that fairly seriously.

I think the servers are running tonight...I'll have to play it some more. (yeah the servers are only up three days a week, I don't think its open beta)
