    All those games you mention have mechanics that make death much, much less painful than df. Like I said, maybe the zones they’re making will suffice, Maybe they’ll need a bit more. We’ll see.

    Exactly. Full Loot isn't the problem. The problem has always been the lack of development on the game. It's STILL after 10 years, barely scratched the surface of those other games.

    Getting rid of full loot only serves to alienate the fanbase even more. The economy would be WAY out of whack. No one would PVE. The game would be the closest to a MOBA its ever been. All it would consist of is running out, dying, running out, dying, running out, dying. You might as well make it a MOBA at that point.

    It has high sec which DETERS it, but you can really die anywhere except docked.

    EVE probably has it 100x worse honestly. I get messages from my friend talking about how he was in a fight with ships valuing $10,000 USD. Imagine losing that and then complaining about making bone sets in Darkfall.

    Empire space which is 99% safe for most people and you can get insurance on your ships. Also someone could play for years never leaving their station if they really wanted.

    It really proves my point. The problem IS full loot without reprieve. By adding in measures like insurance, safe zones, loot rules based on location and whatever else these other games have implemented then you're no longer 100% full loot.

    Except if you took out full loot right now the game would be even more stale than it already is, and players would still get shitcanned by zergs 24/7 until their gear broke.

    This we agree is the issue, not full loot itself but a lack of a "recovery" zone. Even the most elite of "bangers" wants to relax and chill every so often. For this reason the new Blue and Yellow zone system is being implemented on the mainland. TJ has finished creating the zones and we're finishing up the rest of the rules and new PvP flagging system.

    Blue is the zone new all players start in which will encompass the Human racial areas. There is no loot drop in this zone only. Yellow zone will be the rest of the mainland minus the centre wasteland and chaos cities areas. Yellow zone you won't drop your paperdoll and will drop some or most of your backpack. This means you won't have to regear much after getting killed in yellow zones but you still lose loot so the danger aspect remains. Outside of these zones is all red/lawless zones with no alignment loss and full loot on all players. Red and grey players will drop all items on death in any zone. We'll have all the exact specifics on patch day but the intention is a blue safe area, yellow semi safe area and red no safety area allowing players to choose their level of risk vs reward.

    Its obvious... the same assclowns who have tried to say its not full loot are the only ones still here... I gave my opinion and im done. the same opinion I gave 4 years ago. The new safe zone literally changes nothing... no loot drops.. lol. Send me a message when you revert back to the way the original game was and you have dumped full loot.
    We all called it in beta before the game launched... it was too brutal when we went out in groups killing everyone. The game held population for about 3 months and after that the decline set in.
    I mean.. most guildies and friends main complaint was full loot and the crazy amount of time it took to skill. So you took the amount of time to skill and made it super fast and yet... for some other reason... no one plays.

    What is Rise of Agon?
    Rise of Agon raises the PvP Sandbox MMORPG to new heights, giving veterans and new players an epic fantasy experience like never before. In this sandbox MMO, thousands of players have the freedom to choose their own destiny, create and control empires, engage in unrestricted PvE and PvP combat with full loot, or sail the open seas in a reimagined naval warfare system. Strategy and skill will be your most valuable asset when choosing your path. Now go forth and explore new lands, forge alliances to lay claim to your territory, and conquer your enemies where Risk vs Reward will dictate your future

    Thats from the RoA website so I think your playing the wrong game if you dont want full loot bud.

    Im not playing this game.. and no one else is either. Just the same handful of dumbasses. I played this game day one with murder herd. We got all your gear and some.. in beta and live.

    How is that naval warfare btw? Im willing to bet no one but a dev has even made ship on this server for fear of losing it.. Oh wait... the forums say one alliance owns the whole map so maybe im wrong.

    You say everyone quit cause of full loot but i mean i dont know 1 person that quit cause of full loot lmao everyone i know tried this game because it was full loot, they quit because the development of the game was almost non existent with nothing new to ever do but play 10 year old content and bugs that have also been around for 10 years with new bugs popping up anytime they did patch anything. theres no substance to shit you say about full loot besides you being some care bear in the wrong game.
