Reasons to like Firefall

#1 Posted by lockwoodx (2479 posts) -

1. It's made by ex-blizzard (who worked on WoW) and dynamix (who worked on tribes) employees and you can see the quality in the site and videos.
2. It's going to be a FREE 2 play mmo.
3. Dave Wick who was a founding Legend of the Five Rings creator and lead writer is the lead class designer for Firefall.

The look reminds me of Borderlands.

It's very Blizzardesque and tribesy.

Let's hope they are smart with the in-game payment system.

Free is the keyword...

It looks interesting. Though it's not hard for me to be interested in an MMO.

...if that's what they mean by "free to play".  Remember that Guild Wars is also free to play, but that's "buy the game and there's no subscription fee".  That's the way I would think something like this would be, because seriously...that game is looking too good to be a microtransaction-based "F2P" game.

This is what I meant, I don't want to see a micro-transaction , like especially you have to pay $$ for special weapons, or more ability upgrades after level caps
I've played some mircotransaction F2P game before it totally ruin this type of game.  If they go the guild wars route I think that would be fine but then we would probably have to pay for expansions and what not?

I would not mind paying for expansions if the core game itself is free to play without game unbalancing items in the store people can just buy.

Red 5 studios , will not be selling ANY kind of weapon or anything that will give you an advantage in game.

But how will red 5 studios earn money then ?: They are going to be selling EXP boost , unique skins for your character and stuff like that , They wont be selling ANY weapon or anything that gives you an advantage.

Its going to be a skill based game not a pay to win game.

4. Everytime I see the word "Firefall" I read it as "Firefly" and then I get a warm, tingly sensation.

That's weird, my magazine did a 50 Reasons to Like Firefall feature in the latest issue. I reckon I could like me some Firefall.

Also, I'm not the only one who reads Firefly every time, am I? I think I just want to believe something new can come from Firefly.
