Well, I kinda knew how xsyon was going to turn out, I said it from day 1 I bought this game, crafting is not going to keep people busy and restricting players in what they can and can not do is killing the fun. The game is meant to focus on the player vs player aspect, in terms of player controlling lands, resources and whatever, but what we have here is sims online with a tribal theme in hardcore mode.
I lol'ed at people who said crafting will keep them busy for 6 months? you finding it fun still?..that pointless grind, with the only reasoning behind it, is to get better at it, but for what purpose does it serve? why would you need it?
the game should have not released if it was not going to focus on pvp for six months (or that's what the developers or the majority say) I don't believe it till i see it, and also looking at the track record of the promises, it not looking good in my eyes.
Its like, once that buzz is gone, then what? if there is no motive driving you then what will you do? xsyon is a game that could be great but bad implementation holds it back.
1. its a game that is meant to be pvp focused, so where the hell is that pvp? you don't release a game attracting pvpers then let them find out its not going to have any sort of tribal warfare for six whole months lol.
like really, I had fun watching the development of this game, I even bought it even doe I knew where it was heading, I just wanted to dream that it pull though, i guess sometimes you never learn right but to be truthful I wasn't expecting much when I bought it (kinda a past experience with niche games :P)
xsyon is like a softcore porn, it got safe zones...another major killer, and not to mention the developer saying that safe zones are optional after six months....right, seriously? lol who in their right mind is going to say no to a safe zone?
I have a question for the community of xsyon...what is xsyon?
some say its a sandbox, I say it has sandbox elements, but its no true sandbox in my opinion.
is it a pvp game? wheres the pvp?
is it a pve game? wheres the pve?
is it a survival simulation game?
also last note, the world sure doesn't look like it went though a major event that wiped out most of humanity! ...what was it a robot invasion that kicked off because the robots felt that they needed to protect the forests from humans cutting them down.
anyway Hope you guys enjoy cutting down forests for the next six months and just randomly grieving each other out of safe zones for no apparent reason with the spam known as combat.
one more thing that makes this game unpleasant for me is the fact that the area of your tribe is decided by numbers, like not even wealth or power, but by numbers lol.
like maybe you could extend your land by building forts, which have a radius of control....
I guess that little plot of land we all get is going to keep us busy for six months.....
so yeah I pretty much given up on xsyon now and I am ready for "this game is not for you" ....yeah thats why your community is so small now and also I hate all the people who support putting restrictions in the game, your the ones killing it.
