    Hi Dana, love your avatar. You have such lovely ones.

  2. Who the hell does this kind of thing? Seriously? Are you just speculating here on what some players could potentially do if they wanted to, or do you have some kind of proof that X amount of players did such things? I remember plenty of players posting about such methods on the official forums. Another method was to make your character swim into a corner to level up athletics. Is it stupid? Yes. But it also proves my point that such a leveling system rewards grinding. So people exploit the levelling system using ridiculous grinding methods, then log onto the forums and moan about the levelling system being ****? I'm amazed these people are even able to log on without fully functioning brains. Haha. I agree, but the fact is the system itself encourages this kind of behavior. They did it with Skyrim, too, by grinding up the smithing skill making leather bracers.
  3. Exactly. It is very telling that no one promotes this kind of system as being more fun, only more realistic.

  5. I've never played Betrayal at Krondor, but the Elder Scrolls leveling system rewards grinding. I remember playing Morrowind when it first came out, and players would tape down their control key and park their character behind an NPC. Then they'd go to bed and sleep while their Sneak skill leveled up. Or in Oblivion, how people would just stand there while a mudcrab attacked their character to level up their armor skill. Is it more realistic? I suppose so, but I certainly don't find that entertaining. If PE were to implement a system, I would hope it would be done for the sake of gameplay, and not "realism" (which, IMO, is not a worthy goal in itself). Realism is an attribute, not a virtue.
  6. I think elves and dwarves are overused in fantasy games. While I don't hate them, as such, I really would rather not see them in a whole new IP. It's fantasy... your imagination is the limit.
  7. I agree with this, as well. I would like to have diplomatic solutions to many quests. It would also be nice to be able to use disguises like in Fallout to bypass combat. Perhaps our characters' persuasive abilities could be used to determine whether the diguise is successful or not.
  8. I don't think this is the kind of game where playing dress-up can really have a large role, considering it will have an isometric perspective. There are other games that allow for that kind of thing. I hope the focus of this game will be less on superficial aspects of character customization, and more on depth in character development, interaction and problem solving. I care less about what my character is wearing, and more about what he/she believes and wants to achieve.
  9. I would prefer to see a new fantasy property eschew the Tolkienesque elves and dwarves. The advantage of creating a whole new world is that your imagination is the limit, and this team has more imagination than most. There is an abundance of games with those races already. Please show us something new.
