Recommended Posts

 

Hopefully one day I can play FE, I saw it in a video, and I was very interested, apparently I was late to play it, but I'm sure I will soon, with this update I still have hope!

Hi all,

 

Lots of good discussion. There is a strategy in the works, but I want to hold back the details till we get the combat systems in and can see how things are working.
 

Thanks,

Matt

 

I miss the Telepathy mutation, but I'm probably entirely attached to it due to several years of roleplay and character development around the skill (and subsequently being driven insane by it), following the predefined lore presented by the game.

Its great seeing both old and new names on the forums and I hope everyone is safe and healthy. 🙂

Love to see that this classic is finally getting a face lift and is making its way back around, even if it is slowly coming along. I'd rather it go slowly and come out great than rushed and trash. To Matt and the rest of the devs, keep up the great work! Looking forward to seeing the progress.

This! I hope the current devs realize that the playerbase was much bigger than this forum leads you to believe (though not really that big during the last few years or compared to other MMOs but those nerds don't know anything... 😛). This remaster/remake/FE2/whatever along with some marketing could really make this game great again. FE was truly one of a kind. Unique post-apocalyptic setting (not that unique anymore since FO76 T_T), Old-school MMORPG elements like long and immersive quest chains, earning reputation, making friends and enemies at leveling spots or PvP zone harvester spots, hunting serendipity mobs, the list goes on... Just amazing. Didn't really mean to write an entire review here but I just really can't wait to play again, thanks for the update!

Let's be honest, everyone here wants to see the game back up and running, and we all hyped about the progress, that was made with such small team. Huge thanks to all devs working their patootie off, just to bring FE back from it's grave, and to Matt, for bringing us such good news.

Hi All:

 

Very happy the game is still being worked on.

 

Personally, I don't have a problem with the characters being wiped, especially if that means the economy will be repaired. I only ask that we can keep our unique account-bound items. It would be nice to still have the items we paid real money for or earned in promotions or special events. Keeping our original characters would also be appreciated even if they are reset to level one and lose all gear except what I mentioned. I'd love to have familiar faces follow me from the old game to the reboot.

 

May my Spiked Chopper and Classy Feathered Top Hat live again!

Of course the player base was HUGE, MASSIVE even. It rivaled other games like WoW. So many players that the servers couldn't handle the influx of players online and that there were queues to get into game at its height of popularity. (can you read the sarcasm?)

 

There were queues because the server couldn't handle a few thousand players. Hell I was told by some whom played from the begining, there were times the servers couldn't handle a few hundred players.

 

A few thousand players is not that many when you consider there are millions of gamers out there. FE while unique and loved by most that played it did not interest the majority of gamers overall. Which is OK because that made the game more special to the devoted players of FE. It is not a game that would ever be popular to the masses because it does not offer instant gratification and requires a considerable amount of time to play and achieve anything (eg: crafting, gathering).

 

Those stating this do not hate FE as some imagine, but live in reality. You can love a game but realise its short comings.

On the other hand I'm personally pretty fascinated by another fact:

Every time a new thread is started, someone goes with "delete all items" or whatever, despite the official reply "nothing will be deleted",
and then a bunch of pps began to talk about wipe or something, like its some "thing", even though there's no "thing".

Now that's weird)

Obvi, my point bein, is that I'm seeing a bunch talking about some non-existing illusions like some chatbots,

despite the fact that forum is a place to share opinions, and I'm talking about a bunch of pixels on a screen)

Seems to me like a work of some lightbright or All-Mind)

Official statement was also provided during the live Q&A about there being new servers.

 

Don't be so sure they won't "lose" the data. And from a marketing standpoint a "legacy" server would be a waste of resources.

 

Should be around the 31 min 20 second marker when it's brought up
