Important Poll

Post by Bobik » 28 Jan 2014, 16:52

Greetings!

This is a really important poll for our Life is Feudal world. Please, take a few minutes of your precious time to read it all through and make a final decision about your opinion on that matter. Thank you in advance ;)

Background
1. We have an alignment system, that is supposed to punish "Evil" players who do a lot of random killing without an official state of war. There is a point of no return (-50 alignment) and only way to go beyond that point - is murder (knocking, looting and trespassing won’t push you past that point). Once your character alignment is below that -50 mark, he can never again become “good”. So that is a limiting factor for players and should encourage them to only knock out their enemies, accept pleas of "I Yield" and kill only during an official state of war against other country.

2. Every player will be able to claim at least 100 in-game cells for free for their personal use which will be protected from any type of damage (including other players’ damage) and decay.

3. Players cannot “ruin” or “gimp” their characters. You may always retrain your stats and skills (read more about Skill Cap and Stat Cap on our Wiki) and there will be no special racial abilities whatsoever.

Taking everything mentioned above into consideration, could you please answer a Question?

Question
Would you be willing to pay for EVERY character you want to transfer from Newbie island to the main continent? How much would you be willing to pay for the first character? How much for the second, and so on?

Our current vision is that every player will be able to create and recreate as many characters as he or she wishes, to quickly test the starting skills in different crafting fields, or to test different starting combat skills or simply to get familiar with LiF gameplay. Once the player feels ready for a big world, a single payment of 20 Euro will transfer his main toon to the main land (just like it would if you’ve bought the full game).
If a player wishes to bring over additional toons for more versatility, he will be charged 10 Euros for each one (this amount could be less depending on different offers, deals or discounts). This system should also discourage random, senseless PKing and naked ganking (when players do not care about their alignment and simply grief everyone around, relying on the fact that they can simply create a new toon with a good alignment and continue their actions).
At least only TRUE random PKs should be permitted, who are both “ok” with the hardcore loss of skills and are very badass for that reason ;)

Anyway, looking forward for your answers and comments!

Well, I don't care about multiple characters. I always use to play my one character to the end of my playtime, no matter what.
But I guess it's reasonable to charge the player a certain amount for additional chars.

Mortal Online did this, I think although I wouldn't know as I don't do those kinds of things.

It is VERY important to understand a difference between two systems.
Additional character slots that can be used many time to create a new character, play it, then delete it and create a new one. It is how in MO if I'm not wrong.
In our case you should pay for EVERY new created character that you want to see on a main land, no matter how many slots do you have.

One question:

If the game is P2P, and I have 2 characters, I need pay two different canons? Or just the entry in the gaming world?

P.S.:
The causal PK must be stopped, otherwise we will have another quake-arena.

Why do not you just do a single character?

my friend the game is not p2p, it's b2p :) we always knew that!

you buy the ticket for your character (or more than 1 if you want more characters in the same account) and you leave the newbie island and play the real game forever free

What about those of us who already donated, will we have to pay an additional amount of money to get our characters transferred or will those who backed you guys at least have the ability for one of our characters to be transferred?

I do encourage the idea of a fee to limit the botting, altspamming and what else abuse there may be. Alas, the second fee is way too steep for a simple alt character.

The fee should in my opinion be more of an an inconvenience than an actual cost.

You've already bought the game, why would you want to buy it again?

how about something along the lines of:
as time pass (or maybe a kind of players can decide to give to another player) players get this points. when players do bad things they lose house points. the less points you got (or maybe to more "bad" points you got) the more price is comes to move characters. in addition, those points open up things you cant do without, so people would really be going anywhere is they are creating new accounts to "clean the slate".
