Default eternal crusade makes me salivate

So after THQ went the way of the dodo while working on dark millenium a glimmer of hope appeared in the form of eternal crusade. With almost no footage of the game and little back story as of yet; I was curious if there is any rumored fluff or anything like that. I need some digital 40k sustenance.

Eternal crusade thoughts?

There's some info here. It's been talked about for awhile now.

I appreciate the link but I'd prefer to talk about the game itself and not about whether its free to play or not. I am hoping to jazz about the actual game like the planet, the classes, what the leveling system might be like...again thx for the link but that other discussion is all speculation about subscription and has kinda just become about MMORPG's in general.

It's doomed to fail. They're already asking for fans to put forward ideas to what the final craftworld will be. The problem with that is that it takes so much effort to generate the models and coding for this new craftworld (unless it's done like Dawn of War in which it's just colour schemes, in which case it just changes colours, and which case it's doomed to fail anyway due to lack of proper variety that lorehounds will prefer.

A Pay-to-Win system (seriously? Free to play = microtransactions), lack of contiguity, sacrificing fluff for gameplay, and the fact that it's going to be going against proper PvE and PvP environments in WoW, Runescape, and all other sorts means it'll soon be reduced to "ooh, it's a reskinned version of them with guns replacing arrows".

Yeh. Not going to bother wasting my time with it.

There's quite a few videos around about it. I remember them saying something about not having any type of regular leveling system.

Several races have been confirmed - orks, sm, csm and eldar. Each with 4 'races' and classes.

If the gameplay and environment is good i think it could be a fun distraction, but i can't see it overtaking the MMO market. Hopefully i'm wrong but we'll have to wait and see.

I think if there are more people out there like me then as long as the game has a good grasp of tge 40k universe it will be played. The unfortunate standard of comparing all mmos to wow causes many good games to be overlooked. If every mystery novel were compared to Sherlock Holmes, or every movie compared to casa Blanca, then it would be impossible to enjoy the variety of artistic works that have been created for us. If the game has good fluff I will be playing it at least long enough to dive into the year M39.1 and swim around a bit.

I don't see why not.

"Salivate" means to produce saliva.

This usually happens when animals are offered appetizing food, or at the idea of appetizing food.
