I'm pro-instancing for raiding. I have job aka I have to work. I can't raid 24/7 like I could back in the day. Fuck that shit. It may be what ultimately kills my interest in this game if it's 24/7 raiding for end game.

Not a popular take on here, but I'm pro pvp for raiding. Fuck calendars and waiting lists- take what you can take. Of course, like you, I would probably never be able to actually participate in a competitive guild because I lack playtime, but still...

Just make the raids you can and share your wisdom.

They have particles, you might reconsider

On the other hand it may not be popular enough for there to be a ton of competition. IIRC they also have said their endgame will be focused on grouping and not raiding.

It depends on when it will release I feel. If it's before Riot's MMO, they'll get a decent look at by the MMO community at large. It's a very starved genre. New World is a shit MMO, and it got a ton of unworthy hype(by peeps here no less). A bunch of people tried that game out. If this game is released after the Riot's MMO, then yeah I doubt people give it too much of a look outside of the niche they are going for.

It's nice to hear they are focusing more towards grouping than raiding. I've felt raiding should take a major backseat, and grouping should be a hard focus for MMO's.

Just to clarify here: I said their team has enough people with experience in the realm of classic MMOs, and different solutions can be applied to different games and that their team understands what works best in the game they're making.

I never said MnM was pro-instancing, but they have enough experience to know when it's appropriate - and when open-world interactions can be healthy for a game like this, too.

First I heard any instancing, guess we wait and see what announcements come along
ALovingRobot was the lead designer for LDoN, so he sees the value of instancing in certain situations for sure. He said he based the original concept off the solo instance dungeons in Anarchy Online. That being said, I don't believe instancing is in the current plans for MnM.

classic EQ and WoW (a little differently) hit the good race vs bad race thing great imo... hope they do something similar here

EQ had great interoperability between the good and bad races that balanced it out... WoW had good distinction boundaries

I mean for better or worse they are basically copying EQ. I’m surprised they haven’t announced a race of lizard men called “Iskar” yet.

Personally, I'd like a little more complexity instead of the good old good vs evil trope. Things are far more interesting when factions aren't so cut and dry.

On his stream yesterday Shawn made a comment about a lizard race and how they don't have one...yet. And Shawn has made comments about how the gray in between good and evil makes things more interesting. I've yet to hear them say anything I don't like.
