internet based version of X

Post by Guest » Mon, 19. Oct 09, 09:33

wouldnt it be good if there was a multiplayer version of X, set up like world of warcraft.

edit- i dont get it, why do 3/4 of the voters vote against it. if you dont like it and it was made it wont kill you, its not like everyone will leave the single player games and you would get lonely :P

Seems more like a question of prediction. I don't think anyone knows if an Internet version would be good. If it was made, we wouldn't know if it was good or bad until we played it.

Aaargh.. Just when you thought it was safe to revisit the forums...

I like it solitary sergoba. Other things I do involve people interaction, but I like to choose who these people are - Such online games can attract social garbage unfortunately.

“No," Theemol replied. "Do you?”

I played wow (hardcore) for 2 years and I'm totally glad to be rid of all the screaming kiddies and the totally greed based formula. If you could craft X3 online so that it was not greed based and "leet I'm the pwn" then sure, it might be grand, but the reality of any game where self promotion if the main goal then you'll just end up with elitism and squabbling about what is and isn't fair.

Sometimes it's great to play alone, particularly, backed up with this community which makes it feel kind of 50% offline and 50% online.

I don't think an MMO X universe would work. BUT! being able to do something like allow Co op would be fun. I would love to allow my friends to Flight Fighters or command ships in my Game.

Allowing fleet battle between two players would be fun as well. Something like what was done In the total war games. They could give you a small board of something like 9 sectors. Then a set number of Credits to buy a fleet with. You would then have an objective to accomplish in a set amount of time. One person might be on the defensive and the other on offensive. I think that would be fun.

Read the thread Dragoongfa linked to (or is it one of the threads linked off it? Where's Carlo when you need him...) for an explanation why co-op or any LAN version is less likely to be made than an MMO.

OK thanks that makes sense now. I am still new so I am still catching up.

That was less than a month this time.I'm sure it was only two weeks if that since the last thread on this subject died.

It may or may not be good but it definitely wouldn't be X.

And I shudder to think what would happen to this lovely forum.
