  1. HUGE NEWS!!! MORTAL ONLINE IS FREE TO PLAY!!! FFS i have no friends to tell it about so im telling you guys!!! lets hope dfo will be free too :))

  2. @albersas: Thanks for the MO tip! The only drawback for me is that the skillcap is 60, I believe. So you will have to pay if you want to really enjoy the game, but it’s DEFINITELY a step in the right direction for that game. Either that, or drop some awesome coding on it to fix the bugs. Regardless, I might fuck with it over time.

  3. Wurm Online uses a similar free to play system. Which isnt really a f2p system at all but more of a never ending trial. Definitely a good move for the game because no longer is that 30 dollar box fee a req to play! Plus this can last you much longer then the short trial from before and let you see if the bugs are tolerable for you or not. Attach your facebook account and the sub fee even decreases! I have no time for it but I’ll download and mess around when I can.

  4. This type of F2P isn’t for the free players. They’re transparently trying to provide a large newbie supply for the vets to murder an increase their epeens. This is the nail in the coffin for Mortal. I will never download it again.

  5. Correct it isnt made for free players. It is a glorified trial in the guise of putting free on their website and getting more people into the game. With more advertising. Key points for me with this change are:

    -no box fee
    -unlimited time to test and try the game
    -can dump a sub and hop on to do maintenance/chat with people while I focus on other games

    Not a nail in any coffin but definitely something the game should of done forever ago.

  6. I agree with you guys :/ i read about the f2p players and its aweful news… It is nail in a coffin i guess? but damn ofc you can have some fun with 60 skills :] but no thievery sucks

  7. I agree with Nate on this. RE the coffin – that shit was already nailed shut, just waiting to be buried. If anything, this provided the dude in the coffin with a crow-bar.

  8. Seriously MO is the poorest quality MMO that I ever saw them actual charge money for that piece of fucking shit! It amazes me that some people will may a month fee for the development of a failed game. They had to go free as the 10 fools paying the money fee wasn’t enough to keep the company going.

  9. btw there was tons of people playing it :) There was full towns constanlty it was so hard to steal stuff from players :) But damn fun… i had so much fun with that game that im willing to come back:) Stealing items finding fence to sell them and identify them… bringing stolen items to other city to sell them… so much win…

  10. Free to play is not the answer. Mortal needs to fix its bugs and dial in combat. A game that’s not worth $15 per month isn’t worth playing for free. So in my mind free to play means game over. Your time is worth more than $15 per month.

  11. I agree F2P is not the answer for MO. They just need to delete all the servers and their backups. Then they can start over and make a real fucking game! Mo is the most unpolished game I ever played. I wish people who like to play Sandbox’s wouldn’t support failing games like this. Then maybe a company would make a fucking real sandbox game. There hasn’t been a good one since the original EQ, so sad!

  12. @Albersas: While I don’t disagree, you have to admit that they make a deliberate attempt only allowing you to create the ugliest humans ever (men and women). Their boobs aren’t cool.

  13. Coolit:

    This isn’t even f2p. So no need to scream calls of incoming doom and gloom. This is only a glorified permanent trial and the removal of an unecessary entry fee. More people try the game = more people that sub to the game = more money to fix the shit you want fixed.

  14. MO has been a FAIL since day one and so has Dark Fall! Now they are doing to release DFO UW before it’s ready. History will repeat it’s self and the butt hurt will flow. I can’t wait catch the tears and offer them to the MMO gods!
