General Impressions Poll

Postby Kymvir Raemiz » Tue May 16, 2006 11:25 am

Well, we've covered several months now of the game, and I'd like to hear general impressions, especially about the V2 overhaul for battles and KTs.

Any feedback is welcome, even if it is nothing about the v2 overhaul though. :)

There is a lot to the game that make it more enjoyable than an average sim; i.e. equipment for armies, personal armies, towns and villages, I could go on for a while. The GM's are also very quick and work very hard, which makes the sim that much better. My only real complaint is that there needs to be more GM involvement with the storyline because it is sort of lacking at the moment. Perhaps trying to get the Role Play thread more lively might help with this.

I can’t really say much for the Kingdom/Battle portions of the game, but from a standard player’s POV, I have to say so far I really like it. The option to have BG Points at the beginning is a neat option and lets you have a variety of things to choose from. (From a character creation standpoint, it gave me fits until I finally decided on the type I wanted to play, though there are several others I’ve already thought up incase the current character ever dies.)

Overall it’s very good, but I was so tempted to click play with rattlesnakes… :P (*Likes to be difficult sometimes*)

This is a great Sim in my opinion, quite well made. The variety of options that one has in this Sim is what makes it so good, in my opinion. Either way, keep up the good work ^_^

Oh, and like the people above me, playing with rattlesnakes sounded like an interesting option, no wonder it has 1/6 of the votes :P

I think it's a great casual sim. Good work. Some things can be more complex, but since your aim is simplified, I think you succeeded. However, with all the new options and personal armies etc. I really wished you guys made it more complex (or I hope simrtk incorporates it :P). Anyway, good work.

It is too early for me to fully say it is great but so far it is good and pushing towards great.

I like the sign up system, the options given really add variety and made me think. The battles have been fun to read and I have enjoyed the duelling system

You have done it.

For a while, every I go, all sims are moving farther and farther away from the player. Hear me out. Every sim is afriad of cheaters, bad players, jerks, idiots, etc.

And so they make the sim as cut and dry as possible.

But Warlords has trusted its people. You are a ruler, no matter what, if you want to be. (or could have been.) You can be a small magistrate, or provinicial lord. Betrayal is on the fly, as you personally command men, armies. You have loyal NPCs YOU create and are free to rp. Background points give you the ability to have so many things considered an unending and pointless headache elsewhere. You have simplified it as much as possible, saying "Here. Here is warlords, a simple, easy game. To let you do what you want to do that can be done. No strange rules, no stipulations." You ran with it, and you've been rewarded, I think, by a goodly amount of activity, high praise, and one of the best games I've played, not just sim. You really feel like a random guy in China.. talented, and able to do what you will.. if things go your way. No artifical structures that limit you. And you have not suffered for it, as some people would think. I know people who twould balk at the idea of giving someone "As many NPCs as they can recruit, some of which are as loyal/close/controlled as statless npcs." Or a sizable army to anyone who wishes it. Or to having 80 thousands rulers. But you did it, it works, and I love you. ;)

I'd say things are going great, but there is still room for improvement, as always. I think there are simply too many NPC rulers and not enough GMs to to play them all significantly.

It's really good, but there are too many npc rulers and too few gm to play them all. Also I think two npc's to a pc character is pushing it, but it's a minor thing. I like game so far.
