  1. As you said, this idea opens too much space for exploits. PvP players would organize themselves to have the most toughness possible, defeating each other in friendly training. The only way to deal with the fact that there will be powerful and weak characters (because we need this, it creates a lively society...) is to enforce the inter-dependencies between all players. If industrious and carebear transporters players are necessary to PvP core game, they will be protected and encouraged to continue their business. In the opposite, if a player can be powerful AND autonomous, it's like Homelander in The Boys, he can do what he wants for no particular reason. 🐵

  5. The Old Guard is glad to welcome Geolidas and Eleena as Brother and Sister of the Old Guard. They share with us a taste for immersion and good atmosphere in a real group where every member know each others and work together.

  6. We can not mimic reality because DU is a very different kind of world : nobody really dies, nobody really suffers. There's no moral conflict, no limit to what a player can consider as fun. He shoots at a medical facility ? Well, there's no dying people nor children inside, just voxel exploding in the void. So neutrality won't be respected in the game every time an organisation thinks this is a fun thing to shoot at neutral people. Neutrality will only be respected if they have funnier thing to do elsewhere.
  7. Noveans, Here is our current structure and some explanations.
  8. The actual fighters are already Lock&Fire beyond visual range. It would be logic to have this on our spacecraft and no more dogfighting. But we have a long way before the first PvP mechanisms. And I'm wondering if they won't put PvP at the very end of the development to let creative and community players build a world before letting others destroying it.
  9. In such a game, you can't introduce roleplay out of nowhere like scenario, character creation, lore creation. The world will evolve out of the control of any GM. And the lore is simple when the game will begin : we all were on Earth just some minutes ago, in our mind. So any lore is litteraly beginning the day of the last DU server wipe. It is more a "RP event" kind of game, with an objective and a team. And they deal with real attacks, real problems, real personnality. As for me, roleplay in this kind of game should be limited to this : define a Big Objective, define a method to reach it in the long term and choose some behavior rules. And the most important : stick to it whatever it happens and stay consistent. But it doesn't imply a different kind of gameplay ingame like talking and acting weird. The griefer part is a real issue. I like the concept of full PvP full loot, because it induces real behaviors, real alliances, real need of protection, in short, the foundation of any civilisation. But for some, PK is the core of their gameplay because unlike real life, there is no death penalty nor lifetime jail for murder. So this is easy to target carebears and above all, this is riskless ! A game developement studio will never introduce a temporary ban if the player is caught and put in jail. This is the main unbalance when dealing with the PvP/PK issue in any game. They only have rewards and no punishments.
  10. The Old Guard is glad to welcome Moysea and roghienAx after the last pre-alpha session. Moysea is a long distance traveler and experimented ship builder, with ton of ideas and will be a perfect explorer and prospector among Inquisitors. roghienAx is our first non-french speaking member. He joined us as a Follower, from the Delta Confederation and shows how the OGG can welcome noveans from another main organisation. Followers can join our missions, our projects and stay with us in our sanctuaries. They can decide not to have strong ties with us, as long as they share our values about aesthetic in creations, landscape protection and balance of power. The difference with the members of the Old Guard is that Brothers pledge only to the OGG as a main executive organisation, and can vote about strategic decisions. The salary/contribution aspect is still to be decided, depending on the released features. Join The Old Guard, as a Brother or as a Follower ! Show the beautiful, hunt the ugly and put all your weight on the light side of the scale ! - - - - - L'Ordre des Gardiens de Gaia est heureuse d'accueillir Moysea and roghienAx en son sein après la dernière session de test de la pre-alpha. Moysea est un grand voyageur et un constructeur de vaisseau expérimenté, avec pleins d'idées, et fera un parfait exploreur et prospecteur au sein des Inquisiteurs. roghienAx est notre première membre non francophone. Il nous rejoint en tant qu'Adepte (Follower), tout en restant dans laDelta Confederation et montre comment l'OGG peut intégrer des Noveans déjà membre d'une organisation principale. Les Adeptes participent à nos missions et à nos projets et sont chez eux dans tous nos Sanctuaires. Ils peuvent aussi décider de se tenir à distance de nos activités, tant qu'il partage nos idéaux sur l'esthétique de toute création humaine, de la préservation des paysages, et du maintien de l'équilibre des influences. Un Membre de l'Ordre des Gardiens doit en revanche ne pas avoir d'autres organisations exécutives et peut voter sur les décisions stratégiques. Les aspects salaires et contributions doivent être encore définis, au fur et à mesure de la sortie des nouvelles fonctionnalités. Rejoignez l'Ordre des Gardiens, en tant que Membre de l'OGG ou Adepte de Gaia ! Montrer le beau, traquez le laid, et maintenez l'équilibre des forces !
