Albion online

Anyone play or heard of this game?
I just got back into playing it.
Its basically runescape but the endgame zones are the wilderness and the entire game is built around full loot pvp. I think its very well designed

    would you fuck off with the constant runescape references? You think you're cool by bringing up that fucking game that everyone knows about every other post. Albion is fucking stupid. No shit people have heard of it retard

      Sorry I didnt know if the game is widely known, I thought it was very niche since most normies hate losing their gear in pvp..

      I've been meaning to give it a try.
      You say like RuneScape: how grindy is it in comparison?

      Its pretty similar, just in different ways.
      Theres a skill tree, its a light grind to unlock stuff, like base gear/crafting/ gathering, it goes by tier 1-8, you can unlock being able to use a tier 8 weapon in a few days, but it takes quite a while to get max specialization in it to get the full stats.
      For gathering and crafting maxing spec will give you more profit from doing it.

      Theres also learning points, you gain either 10 or 30 per day depending on if you have the monthly sub, you can use them to level something up once you reach at least 20% of the exp bar.
      Sorry I dont think my explanation is very good, id watch a video about it..
      Overall id say the grind is pretty similar, it would take equally long to max everything like in osrs

      Its not p2w at all.. The sub thing only gives you double the exp and money.
      (You can also buy this with in game currency)
      You can buy in game currency with irl money but its not like every typical game, you cant just swipe a credit card, buy max gear and go wreck everyone, pros are just gonna team up on you and take your gear.
      Most people wear cheap gear.
      And gear doesnt make you ridiculously more powerful like in normal games.

      This game is not p2w, I would know, cause i hate those shitty freemium p2w garbage games

        it's a team oriented game that's what you retards never tell newcomers about the game. There is no individuality in albion it all depends on who you're teaming with

          I play solo
          There was a new update that made a zone where everyones solo.
          But yeah in the guild owned territories theres large scale team fights.
          Usually in the overworld theres 5-10 man gank squads.
          You can still beat 1v5 if you know what youre doing.
          Theres plenty to dungeon diving videos or rat videos where one guy is fucking up a whole team

          Anyways its not really a problem
          When i get ganked and fail to escape i lose like 60k, for comparison you can make 500k- 1m per hour in the safe zone or 1m+ in the dangerous zone.

          Also they balanced the mount mechanics which makes it hard for you to get ganked by a small group if you dont want to be.
          If you dismount on someone you cant attack for 5 seconds, which means they can ride away easily

      >pay to advance faster
      so just like the biggest mmorpg WoW where you can literally buy max level?
      You can jump with mobility skills

        That's not how logic works idiot. You have no defense so you just say well another shit game does it so no big deal

    I got into it for a while, long story short you either join a zerg clan or have nothing to do (and even if you do, you're just a sheep forced to play X which is whatever they want) and secondly its massively P2W.

        sadly that will never end either especially with the rise of adhd zoomers that have no prospects in life

        Well Albion like most MMOs focus entirely on time = power which means you might as well just bend over to 99% of engagements.

        Theres no MMOs that reward skill and Albion especially only cares that you sub and grind.

          To me it seems no different from the glory days of runescape wildy pking. Thats probably the most fun ive ever had playing video games as a kid, every day after school I would be fighting in varrock wildy in multi combat, teaming up with people, luring people out to deep wildy and backstabbing, huge clan wars in deep wild. Sadly the modern osrs pvp is totally dead, nobody goes to wildy now and theres like 100 guys who are 1v1ing in ge pvp world.
          You can basically do the old Wildy pking in albion. Just cause you can get ganked by big groups doesnt change anything, I got ganked thousands of times by clans in runescape.
          To me pvp games /mmos are boring without loot pvp, the chance to gain or lose gear makes everything exciting.
          Wow pvp is boring, it doesnt even matter if you get a bunch of kills in faction or arena, you dont get shit except some points.

      which is that big teams congregate together and travel in packs and pick off the solo players which means there is no actual game to play for the solo player
