If there are changes you wish to see, use the Site Feedback & Support board. Topics and posts may be edited or altered by Dojo staff members due to bad formatting. This can include things such as posts typed in capslock or posts that have content that needs to be hidden with spoiler tags. Moderators may delete or hide posts without warning if the post was not worth writing a warning for. If your post is hidden or deleted and you were not notified, it was done so because it broke a simple forum rule and required removal. Questions & Technical Support Misinformation will be hidden. Constant spreading of misinformation or lazy replies will result in a warning or ban (i.e. “search it yourself”). Blade & Soul Feedback You will not beg NCSoft staff, Curse staff, Dojo staff or Dojo members for gifts, keys, NC Coins, etc unless participating in a specific giveaway.

Erotic roleplay (“ERP”) will not be tolerated and will result in a hidden post or deleted thread. Mods & Tools You will not post mods or tools that could be used to give you an advantage over other players (i.e. speedhacks). You will not post extremely explicit mods, such as nudity mods. You will not steal work created by another user. All work must be original unless you are given permission by the original creator of the work to post it on the Dojo. You will not submit mods that infringe on the copyrights of companies (i.e. Sanrio outfits, etc.). You will not submit mods that require users to bypass GameGuard, nor will you that teach users how to bypass GameGuard. Off-Topic Discussion Forum rules #3, #4, #8 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Off-Topic Discussion board. You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made. Please note, creating additional accounts (“sockpuppets”) to circumvent a Dojo ban will result in a longer ban of the original account and permanent bans of the additional accounts.

http://www.firefallthegame.com/

Cinematic

pax 2010 gameplay

There's also the same video with developer commentary and a lot of new video's and info with Pax East 2011 just last weekend.

Oh and it will be free to download and free to play.

Red5 have said for the cash shop you can not buy power and it will contain mostly appearance and convenience items.

I signed up on the forums for the beta a long time ago and still check in from time to time. If I do get a beta key I'm still iffy on whether or not I'll play or give my key away.

Seems like this one is being overshadowed by all the others. I keep my ear open for news, but not actively. I'm signed up on the website, but haven't heard any news. Then again, I don't often go to the forums.

Firefall is a massively multiplayer online team-based computer game from Red 5 Studios, a studio founded by Mark Kern. It is currently in its closed beta stage and it will attempt to mix elements from the MMORPG and MMOFPS genres when it is released.













This game is on the very top on my to-buy or waiting-for list (the order being: GW2, Firefall, B&S and RaiderZ). The combat is fluid, engaging and very well-polished, the graphics are great and probably are going to last for a long time as it's a mix of comic-realistic, the plot is well-thought out, etc. Lots of good stuff about the game. Not to mention, it's basically an AAA title. Free, too. RED5 is really trustworthy and they've said that the cash shop will only, and only, sell aesthetics. The game's build won't work with P2W anyway, since it revolves around your aim and how well you play. So = no P2W.





The developer team, RED5, have shown that they listen and act upon the community's opinions. One example is that the leveling system wasn't all that liked by the beta-testers since it was too generic, and RED5 in turn revamped the game completely by removing leveling and presenting the players with another, even better system.





There are lots of more examples, and personally, I think Firefall will be a huge hit. C: I'll be playing it the moment it's out. Or, well, when I get my beta invite.





Your thoughts?

I did. C: But the topic was kinda dead, and the game was updated by a huge margin, so I thought I'd re-do the thread to see if anyone here noticed it. I'm pretty sure necro-ing isn't allowed...

Yeah, the game isn't even the same anymore after the update!

I've been in the beta for a while now, but honestly since the update and the changes to their net-code there's a massive decrease in performance and responsiveness on the PVE side (i.e. delayed reactions from mobs and delayed updating of heath on targets = loss of ammo from overshooting). In PVP though it seems perfectly fine.

Might give it a try. Does the beta accounts from before the update still works? Haven't logged in in awhile, but may go back if it is interesting!

Well, I just got into this weekend's beta and for first impressions, the gameplay is really fun.

Graphics could use some tuning up, though. But other than that, I'm having fun :3

Nevermind on the graphics part; just tweaked enough to get it to look good.

Couple of bugs here and there; normal of a BETA. Some serious issues with a few quests, though.

They've kept it pretty steady with the updates and it seems like there's a lot less responsiveness-related issues, which is great. Quests are still pretty buggy to the point that they're impossible to complete.

Turned shadows off to get 60 FPS.

This game has some serious issues with shadows or my GPU doesn't like it.

Hopefully they will fix that before releasing the final product.

Though with my current computer, it would possibly explode if I tried to run that type of game with shadows. :embarrassed:
