No one really uses this anymore it seems. Oh well I am always trying new F2P games, and I make short posts in the forums might as well try my hand at creating a reveiw to see if I can get some life back in here. I had 5 pages worth of stuff first try, so lets do a snapshot for now.
Fallen Earth Fallen Earth Trailer 3 PC? - YouTube
One of the better ones, free is limited, 10 red chips (10,000 base chips=1 red) one character, 100% exp and game content but 35% pvp points earned, and 25% slower crafting and gathering. Freemium is what I love purchase anything form store wich has no p2w items and get a code for 4 char slots, no money limit, 3 crafting slots per toon, and grab bag of premium junk. Subs have 3 versions, all similiar, 100% everything and 10 craft slots for 10, then just more exp, faction, pvp point gain per sub level after that. There are lock boxes, mostly cosmetic items, some pets, and one type with goodies in it, you can get keys in rare instances off bosses, tougher boss better odds of key,also you can buy keys from AH.
Crafter heavy game, most your gear you or some one else will make. Poker chips instead of coins, color coded and similar to the copper(white), silver(blue), gold(red) etc system. One world server, RPers dot the landscape don't know a lot about them, but they seem to be active since there are RP clans. Its a hybrid game like Star Wars galaxies but not, you hit tab or mouse wheel to go into shooter mode, you can zoom with scoped weapons, and headshot for extra damage. There is melee weapons and builds, they to can get head shot bonus if you swing at a head. It still has MMO basics, exp level system, hot bar for abilties, instead of talent trees and classes, its like SWG of old, you get AP points you spend them where you want each skilh as different abilities to get, and you can mix and match. All skills are caped based including crafting are set and displayed base traits, int, str etc.
Decently active, appears to be very healthy population. Has a help channel that is global where you can ask questions and get answers based on what others are willing to share. The GMs are actually part of the community, there not always on but police when on, they also lurk around in stealth waiting for people to mistake help chat for trade chat in WoW. The GMS are all powerful they can mute, ban, and even teloport players, and don't really answer to many people, they also have bad days so don't pick a fight with one, and if they seem agitated put on your best halo when talking in help chat. They are not bad guys unless you poke the bear, if not busy they will answer and help in Help chat as well, and like a taxi they can flag them selves as online in social tab so you can send them PMs, normally they not big fans of it, since they get alot of questions that can be answered by 10 people in help chat in 2 seconds, and people expect GM to fix it for them.
PVP vrs PVE:
It has both pvp 100% optional there are some traps in the large world, pvp areas tend to have good crafting mats in or around them to help encourage players to venture in. A warning will go over you screen as you approach one, and it will flat out say when you crossed the line into it. PVE like all MMORPGs you got tons of quests, and dungeons of sorts, not s many instances at least I have seen, there also some raids in game not as crazy as wow raid, but they do exist.
And it has a faction system at about 30 ish, there are several factions each one with an allie, friends, and one sworn enemy, and other minor enemies. towns will start poping up that can be fought over via pvp, you can fight for/with other factions, but its where the pvp raiding is. The contested areas are rich in mats, and you build extractors that are temp structures you must guard to gather up mats in fast manner. Most of the endgame to my knowledge is fighting for this zones, since it can be fun if its your thing. OH and its not just max levels areas are level caped, so if your max level and its ment for a a cap of 35 or less you get a nerf effect, I think you get buffed when too little as well, but not sure.
I love that 90% of items are crafted, there is no merchants for good toys minus pvp ones, and quest tend to hand you crafted things that are 5 levels lower then you once you leave the starter zones. You will craft at some point, you can get enough to skip most of it and buy from Auction house, but I love crafting so to me that is the best part. I also highly recommend freemium, its 5 buck min to buy g1 credits, it works for this game and APB, and you can buy even the cheapest item for an upgrade code. In STO I payed 15 bucks for more char slots, another 10 for 10 bank slots, in this game 5 bucks got me 4 char slots, 3 crafting slots, removal of currency limit, and grab bag of toys. I honestly don't feel any pressure to sub at all, there is no must haves on the store either, only thing that taunts me is wardrobe slots for dressup, and a all in one toolkit that lets me throw away my other toolkits for more bag space lol.
TOG DIVISION STATUS:
Saddly in this ones case the division is in the archived section. A few members poke in, but I think all active TOGers have left the in game clan. The archived section does contain lots of info however, but there is no current officers so the in game clan like the forum division is in moth balls.
