What makes Allods so special?

Just out of curiosity. Oh and maybe, if we're extremely lucky, my.com/Allods Team can learn something from this and improve, but it's a long shot. It's not like we haven't tried before.

What makes Allods so special to You? What drives You to keep playing?

What do You like the most in/with the game (in its current state)?

What do You dislike the most in/with the game (in its current state)?

What do you want to change/improve in/with the game?

Is there anything from the old days that You want to bring back to the game?

How long have You been playing Allods?

Would You recommend this game to anyone else (in its current state)?

What makes Allods so special to You? What drives You to keep playing?
the unique art style and overall look of the game, the musics, the reincarnation system, the memories of the good old time (a few years ago, patch 3.0 to 6.0), devs ruined a big part of what made the game so good with the 2 last big updates 7.0 and 8.0

What do You like the most in/with the game (in its current state)?
the art style, the lore, the reincarnation system, the community (for the most part), once again i'd like to say more things but these things either don't exist anymore or have been made so easy and unchallenging that they don't count anymore to me

What do You dislike the most in/with the game (in its current state)?
-everything is now soooooooooooo easy and noob friendly that you never get any achievement feeling which is imo THE thing you want from that type of game
-90% of the changes made since 7.0 patch are just horrible to me (aka : the 2sec global cooldown and the class changes, the gearing system changes..........)
-the fact that devs don't seem to even look at our feedbacks

that's about all but it's already a lot :thumbdown:

What do you want to change/improve in/with the game?
All mentioned above
+
to me, removing the class change items and instead make reincarnations share the gear progression would make the game much more fun as it would basically allow us to play with let's say 20-30 different gameplays (2-3 big orientations possible per class) and thus make the game far less boring (and cheaper, cause yep on top of that these class change items are super expensive, and imo are like a joke when you see that what i propose would perfectly fit the reincarnation system...)

How long have You been playing Allods?
5.5 years

Would You recommend this game to anyone else (in its current state)?
really annoyed to say this but : no, or maybe just for the lvling part but who wanna play an mmo and stop when reaching max lvl... i gues no one

A majority of the people on subscription are amazing people, regardless of whether or not they are good at the game.
I like the graphics, music, and the subscription community. It also has a unique story
I dislike the lack of advertisement for the game as a whole. With support focusing on bigger titles, such as Revelation, and Skyforge, we're pushed to the side, and are seen as a lower priority.
I'd like to include more advertisement for the game. The game truly is exceptional, but with the lack of priority, it'll just perish like the rest of the tab target trinity games.
I've been playing for 7 or so years.
I would recommend people to play on subscription server, regardless of it's state. Just having someone meet those who I encounter and play with every day would be a blessing.

What makes Allods so special to You? What drives You to keep playing?

Nothing, I stopped.

What do You like the most in/with the game (in its current state)?

Some of the other players.

What do You dislike the most in/with the game (in its current state)?

The "international" schedule which puts everything on literally the opposite of my schedule. GMT-10 timezone when everything is done in GMT+2.

What do you want to change/improve in/with the game?

Better internationalization of the schedule, or better region splitting. Also getting rid of the cash grab sales would be nice. I mean, is it just me or do the current sales really seem like nothing more than a cash grab? The obivious "p2w" arguments aside.

How long have You been playing Allods?

Since gPotato was the publisher, at the beginning of the Gipat patch. AKA level 42 cap.

Would You recommend this game to anyone else (in its current state)?

No.

Honestly, I'm not sure how long this thread will last since you are asking for opinions that are potentially deleterious to the image of the game/publisher.

RE: What makes Allods so special?

Just out of curiosity. Oh and maybe, if we're extremely lucky, my.com/Allods Team can learn something from this and improve, but it's a long shot. It's not like we haven't tried before.

What makes Allods so special to You? What drives You to keep playing?
reincarnation
progressive gameplay
rewarding gameexperience
automove
adorabe chars
the huge variety of costumes
lootpet
option to play completely free
detailed gameworld (game was made with love, its obvious!)
interesting stroy (yes i have read the quests, feel bad if you havent :rolleyes: )
awesome mounts
huge variety of items to improve the char
T-key (all related to questprogress is visually highlighted)
addon-api
all gamerules are simply enforced by gamemechanics


What do You like the most in/with the game (in its current state)?
the simple system for gearup & easy raid

What do You dislike the most in/with the game (in its current state)?
the global cooldown and the removal of the old classmechanics
the "Miniseasons" - gear already becomes worthless so fast, now its even faster

What do you want to change/improve in/with the game?
general:

- reverted GCD back to pre-7.0
- removed need of certain aspects for rubies
- added new 1 vs 1 battleground

- updated KOE; there is a league and an empire basecamp now with many PVP related quests like escort NPC to enemy base etc
- players which have all reincarnations now recieve the option to create a reincarnation on the other faction

Oh man, where shall i begin

What makes Allods so special to You? What drives You to keep playing?

Special to me? Hmm, i guess its the uniqueness of the game, the story, the graphics, the fighting mechanics, the memories (mainly this, very good memories of me starting the game makes me come back to it).
Nothing, i come back to the game when the patch comes in to play some of the story and then the game gets boring and i stop playing (like now).

What do You like the most in/with the game (in its current state)?

I don't know why, but it's a hard question now, earlier i could mention a lot, but now i see more of the bad stuff in it. There is almost nothing i like in this game now, I think the memories i had, maybe it's the time i've spent and the attachment to my beloved character is the thing i like the most.

What do You dislike the most in/with the game (in its current state)?

That's a pity i have to pick one thing. Well, here it is - behind every aspect of the game, you have a microtransactions behind it.You literally can't get past anything without noticing there is an option to pay so you will get to the certain point or achieve something faster. And unless you load half of your life savings into the game, you can't keep up with the players that do that(pay), well, if you have plenty of life to spent and you don't see the point in living but playing this game what makes you play 24/7, then there is slight possibility of keeping up with players that pay. Not 100% guaranteed. In addition to that, there are items that you can get only by paying with the real money currency, thats like overkill to not paying people and another shot in the wallets of donators.

What do you want to change/improve in/with the game?

Seriously? Haven't you seen my 2 or 3 threads in the suggestions tab or anybody else's threads there?
https://allods.my.com/forum/index.php?pa…&threadID=14976
https://allods.my.com/forum/index.php?pa…&threadID=21776

In general:
- raid search aplied to EVERY raid in the game + raid difficulty like: normal, hard OR easy, medium, hard with each difficulty there would be more parts of equipment per 1 astral key
- maps working properly, that is if you want to see some dungeon, you can, if you want to see some raid map, you can, because the situation now is like, you can see tep pyramid map, not all the maps, but it is there, as well as DC (is that how it is called?) and again you can see SOME maps not all of them, unless you are doing the raid atm
- novograd being finally finished building
- start advertising to bring more people to the game, so you won't have to cash grab and empower players that are already ahead over any new player anymore
- equipment would scale on BGs so everyone would be on the same level, so everyone would enjoy the game, not only those who pay thousands
- new bg: kinda like summerhold but instead of fighting together, players would fight against each other in vehicles in 2 teams
- this one really has to go: miniseasons equipment, this is such a bad idea i can't even imagine, somebody thought of it like a brilliant thing. This is so thrash, i don't have words to define this failure, this mistake, this misunderstanding. I mean, why would you even make this happen? People were happy like it was and now everyone is whining how you basically fcked up. (sorry, lost my temper here) This is what at least i want to see in the place of this garbage - everyone starts with greens, or even better, whites, so there would be more grinding and more fun when you achieve another level of equipment. There are a few options:
Option 1 - equipment gets experience the more you play, the better your equipment gets BUT you have to drop the part of the equipment that is appropriate to the class and exp would be gathered only on dungs, but players could exchange if they got the part they dont need. You can choose if the players once hitting the limit of the exp in equipment should upgrade it on the anvil with matching materials or just click the item to upgrade it.
Option 2 - this one doesn't diifer much from what we have here, but this wouldn't become useless with every patch. Players would just have to upgrade their equipment with the matching parts they drop on dungs, they would be able to exchange those parts with each other, like it is now. This is the easiest option to make imo.
Option 3 - in this option there would be few tiers of equipment, like it is now green, blue purple but the twist is, in every tier there would be different map pool and players would have to drop the whole equipment to advance to another tier and this would go on and on till the max possible tier.
No payments available, no shortcuts, players would have to sweat like hell to achieve something, but that would be also rewarding and enjoyable for the player getting new armor after long grinding. Oh and NO EQUIPMENT RESETS!
and finally
- achievement system, i've explained how it could work in the second link mentioned before, that is the idea that would create much much content to do in endgame and in the game in general imo

Is there anything from the old days that You want to bring back to the game?

Bring back summerhold, you know, fighting in vehicles together against a giant robot, that was fun.
Oh and maybe bring back gPotato, let them handle this mess you've done, like the good old times. :thumbup:

Would You recommend this game to anyone else (in its current state)?

At this very moment no, i mean i know it gets better, the price for crystals gets lower, new players are coming and all that, but no, i would not recommend this game to anybody, bad things overweigh the good ones imo.

The ONLY thing that makes Allods special and keeps me looking at the forum every single day despite not having played in months is memories of what the game used to be. That is it. Every time I come here I get to remember all the things that used to be fun that I could sit there for hours upon hours upon hours until my eyes were bloodshot and my brain was no longer functioning. But those things have been gone for years now.
I wish we could rewind 4+ years into the game and go back to a fun game, I'd come back in a heartbeat, but those days are long gone. I'll just keep coming back and dreaming. :)

Exactly the reason I'm here as well. I think this is the case for many. It's difficult to forget the good times and move on, there are so many good memories. I'm hoping that one day I see an update that changes things to be more similar to what the game used to be.
