    Fallen Earth - a post-apocalyptic MMO

    http://www.fallenearth.com/

    Has anyone heard or actually played this MMO? It looks interesting because it reminds me of Star Wars Galaxies. I like the concept of "the best items are crafted by players and isn't something you just kill a boss over and over to get."

    If anyone has actually purchased it, would you mind lending(pm) me the 30-day trial? I really want to try this but do not want to spend $50 just yet.

    I was in the beta, it was terrible. I'd look elsewhere for an MMO.

    Look forward to killing a boss over and over again to get the rare components necessary to craft the item you want.

    Heh, youd think crafting would be cool. But to craft 1 thing, say bullet, you need about 4 other skills upped/crafted.

    So does nobody play this? I was in a toss-up between this and Aion and did some reading on both and settled with Aion obviously. This game is still interesting to me though, just looks slow and kind of dull. Not much character customization sucks too.

    Amazingly MMORPG fans rate it higher than Aion.

    I also played beta and it was terrible.

    And you can't trust the user reviews on MMORPG.com, that site is terrible. They have Requiem: Bloodymare, Ryzom, and many other absolutely terrible MMOs above Aion. They also have Atlantica Online rated as the 3rd best MMO lol.

    I trust TenTonHammer.com more than MMORPG.com They are a bunch of bandwagoning faggots.

    I beta'd this game too and it blew.

    Well since I got the game for free I figured I would give it a shot. And I'm surprised. The game is a little rough around the edges, but it's really fun. It has the best crafting in any MMO I've played. You can craft pretty much everything in the game. From pens and paper to cars. The high end shit takes forever to craft too. Some items can take hours or days to complete. But you can keep the craft queue going while doing other stuff, even logging out. And you can queue a ton of stuff so you don't have to keep watching it. The combat could use a little work, but playing in FPS mode is pretty fun.

    It's one of the best communities I've played with too. Everyone chats and helps eachother out. A big patch was released last week and added a ton of PvP content. They also just released the box for sale at Walmart, so there are a ton of new players. So far I'm having a lot of fun. I'll probably end up subscribing for awhile until something more decent comes out. But check out the trial if you're interested. I can show you around.

    The world is huge, no loading zones. There is so much to explore and there are resources everywhere. And there are so many fucking components used to craft. They actually make crafting really fun in this game. I'm actually speccing my character as a craft/rifle/support build. You need to make sure you spend your points correctly, because there aren't any respecs.

    The cars and ATVs and shit you can drive are awesome too. They use up fuel, so it's good to level up crafting to make your own fuel or horse feed if you ride a horse. There are motocycle gang clans aren't formed that require you to ride around in bikes. I craft my own bullets for my guns and cook my own food and make bandages. You can also level up just by crafting or gathering. You gain XP from doing those. You could technically get to level 50 without killing a thing. And they plan on increasing the level cap to 150 through a few expansions.


    IGN actually reviewed it and gave it an 8.1. They've done a ton of patching since release too. http://pc.ign.com/articles/103/1037148p1.html

    I agree Cobalt. The crafting system is like no other and I am having a blast. I am building a traveler/social debuff build with sci/ballistics crafting. You can craft and do other things which makes crafting the tedious items like ammo and components really worth while. Then when I log out, I go to a crafting center and queue my workloads for my prize items and when I log in the next day they are done. You also get bonuses to completion time and item attributes randomly while in craft centers.

    The AI for mobs is predictable for any MMO. I do like the quests and story and the environment is open and bleak as it should be.

    Yeah I'm loving the game, not sure how long I'll be sticking with it though. I just got the AoC expansion and am having a blast with that as well. I'm going to try to play both, but I doubt I can. And AoC has a much better endgame, so I'll probably be leaning more towards that.

    What's your ingame name?
