    Ok, what is this game all about and why there's always lot of in-game drama on their forums?

    Sandbox game that promotes "criminal behavior" like thievery, destruction and murdering. On other players. In a perma-death game.

    No. Last time I gave it a shot a year ago, everyone outside of town with a weapon attacked on sight and the starting area is pretty much surrounded by unwalkable land because it is 'claimed'. It is very boring despite the interesting crafting system and everyone attacks which when combined with actual permanent death (character is gone, items are gone, skills are gone, completely gone) it's pointless to play.

    The movement system is also pretty slow and it's one of those games where they purposely make even the most basic of crafting items rare. What happens is you spend about an hour just trying to get something really basic then a random asshole with a gun kills you for kicks and you have to start all over again.

    I downloaded it and it's a complete different game now.

    I may need to come back to the game once some of those changes are introduced. A bunch of those seem quite interesting.

    This has also encouraged me to give it another try and I must say I really like where the game is at right now. Still can't beat Heaven and Hearth though!

    funny how people are like "I got attacked by a bunch of strangers as i started playing the game so you shouldn't play this"

    i would love to actually get attacked like that instead of having a 24/7 peaceful pve spree
