Deux mois d'EarthRise

MHS est-il en échec total avec son jeu ou sont-ils en train de remonter la pente, voici quelques indices permettant de résoudre l'énigme.

Mieux vaut un parachute qu'un pneu

 

 

Si le jeu était sorti dans le même état qu'aujourd'hui il y a deux mois, fort à parier qu'il y aurait encore pas mal de Joliens (et de joueurs tout court) sur "ER". Malheureusement pour nous cela fait deux mois qu'ont le trouve dans les bacs. Il est probable qu'a l'heure où j'écris ces lignes qu'il soit collé au fond d'un tiroir à prendre la poussière chez vous.

De gros efforts ont pourtant eu lieu durant les semaines précédentes : le dernier patch offre sont lot de bonnes nouvelles, avec notamment un nerf de l'arme "nanobotique" lui enlevant sont aoe pour 15% de chance de "disturb" l'adversaire. On trouve aussi une légère bonification des armes de corps à corps lors de leurs attaques basique.
Certains mobs sont dorénavant doté de skills et seront par conséquent plus redoutable à combattre, pas mal de modifications également sur les armures craftées, quelques quêtes supplémentaires et plusieurs petites choses qui augmentent le confort de jeu.

Le rubberbanding est quasiment réduit à néant. Le mot est quelque peu indigeste alors qu'il s'agit d'un phénomène plutôt simple : les mobs et joueurs se situent désormais à l'endroit où on les voit sur notre écran et non plus à 10m !  

ALELUYA dirais-je car pour ma pars le jeu deviens enfin jouable en pve (ce qui n'est pas un mal qu'à outre le grind y'a pas grand-chose à faire). C'était l'amélioration majeure de la semaine, si l'on ajoute toutes celles faites par MHS depuis quelques temps il est clair que le studio bulgare remonte la pente.

Coté mauvaise nouvelle, le lag est toujours présent coter serveur (moins flagrant grâce aux modifications sur le rubberbanding), et le fait que les textures soient toujours chargées via le disque dur n'arrange pas les choses. L'exploit du alt-f4 n'est toujours pas réglé suite à des difficultés rencontrées par l'équipe de développement.

La fin des deux mois gratuit se rapproche a pas de géant (souvenez vous MHS a donné récemment 10 jours de plus aux joueurs ayant joués pendant la période qui fut rollback). La grande question est : "Cela sera-t-il suffisant pour que les joueurs décident de franchir le pas d'un abonnement ?". Même madame soleil s'éclipserait devant un tel dilemme... c'est dire.

Conclusion :

Sortis de léthargie depuis peu difficile de prévoir son avenir mais en attendant c'est un week-end est à double xp, alors si vous avez acheté le jeu profitez donc de l'event pour y refaire un tour et ainsi constater par vous même de toutes les améliorations qui ont été implantées (et y'en a un paquet !).

Maintenant les news officielles dans la langue natale de Molière Britney (noter c'est quand même plus classe sexy).

Double xp pour le weekend

Double XP is only a few short days away! It will take place this weekend, April 1-4 from 3pm GMT on Friday April 1st to 8am GMT on Monday April 4th and will include BP and CP. This is a great opportunity for you to enjoy all of the new and enhanced features from recent patches, including new quests, crafting queues and autostack, and to make up for the valuable time lost during the rollback. It will be great to see everyone in-game to experience the newest quest lines and tons of competitive PvP combat.
 
Double XP weekend is just the first of the exciting event series for Earthrise. Over the next few months, Territorial Warfare and craftable vehicles will be introduced into gameplay. Improvements are being made all of the time, with Masthead continually working on updates and patches. You can stay up-to-date on all the latest by reading Ostiak’s posts every Monday in the Developer Announcement Forum. You can check out the most recent one, here.
 
Are you planning to play this weekend? How are you going to take advantage of the Double XP?!

SOFIA, BULGARIA – March 31, 2011 - Masthead Studios, a leading independent developer of MMOs, today released its expanded development roadmap detailing upgrades and enhancements that will soon be implemented within its MMORPG, Earthrise.

New features for integration in April and May of 2011 include:

• Resurrection mechanics – The first feature chosen in February by the Earthrise community as part of the “Choose your game feature” official forum.
• Quest hints on the minimap – Players will have a clear indicator on the minimap as to where they need to go to work on their quest task.
• Parties will share battle points, levels of contribution and karma from a killed enemy.
• Item and vehicle painting – Crafters will be able to produce paint and sell/give it to other players so they can personalize their armor, weapons and vehicles.
• Guild diplomacy – Guilds will be able to declare war on other guilds and build allies. Guilds at war with each other will be flagged red and the affiliation of their members will not change if they kill each other. Guilds that are allies with other guilds will be considered one entity and all mechanics will work as if they were one guild.

Additional enhancements include:

• Improved chat window with customizable tabs, font and messages.
• Friends/ignore list.
• Improvements to the monster AI.
• Force attack toggle on and off.
• Resurrection points will have an affiliation.

“We are very excited about the new items that we are currently finalizing, and appreciate all of the constructive feedback that we consistently receive from our dedicated community,” said Atanas Atanasov, producer of Earthrise and director of Masthead Studios. “We will continue to seek player input to conduct future developments and could not be more energized about the future of Earthrise.”
