Post Re: Dominus?
I have been following Dominus for awhile now and so far it looks as though it might end up pretty good. It's going to have 3 faction PvP and from what I have read PvE & PvP zones are going to be separate. Much like the Frontiers in DAoC. Here are some recent new updates for the game.

This explains the base system that they are using. I like the system they are using. Your faction has to control the area and then you can build your base. You also have to use your own resources to construct the various pieces of each base. It might be much better than the persistent keep system that DAoC/WAR use.

This show off the Mech system. The Mechs are going to be guardians that each faction can use to guard their bases or be used to attack bases belonging to other factions. This looks pretty awesome as long as these Mechs are not to over powered but at the same time they can't be pushovers. Going to be a little hard for them to balance these in my opinion.

I plan to check the game out once it's ready sometime later this year. The 3 factions PvP is the first big thing I am excited about in the game. Along with that there is the fact that PvE & PvP zones are separate zones from each other. The other thing is actual open world PvP. No more instanced PvP stuff. Or if there is there won't be to much of it.

Something else that is cool is that the best gear is going to be player crafted. Also gear is going to degrade over time. So eventually you will have to get new gear made. At least this is they way it sounds like it will be. Not sure if they are going to add the option for crafters to repair gear. There should be a fairly constant stream of gathers & crafters buying things.

Bases are going to be made from the ground up. They will not be pre-made structures like the ones in DAoC or WAR. But other than that there isn't a lot of information about it.

Star Wars wasn't really a bust. But once you got to 50 is was really repetitive. You raided, instanced PvP, daily quest, or nothing. There is no open world PvP stuff in the game yet like they said there would be. The only place is Ilum and it's rather lame.They still have time to adjust things and turn it around some though.

But for PvP I think Dominus is going to be something to look at. Back to the days of DAoC's open world Frontiers. Just a sci-fi scene instead of mythical/magical.

More than 2 factions, no GCD, and no lame PVE/PVP gear
separation is a prerequisite for me to even consider
playing new MMO these days, after lots of frustration with
MMOs I played after DAOC...hope Dominus brings all of that :)

Dominus just got cancelled today according to their facebook and website due to lack of funding. I was looking forward to this game as well with its three realm rvr end game model. :cry:

Yea I saw that early this morning. Sad to see this happen to a game that had promise to bring RvR back to those of us that enjoy it. Hopefully they will just keep the game on a back burner and when/if funding is found they can pick up where they left off.

Guess it will be a lot of Diablo 3 and Torchlight 2 for me for now.

Yea there is a Torchlight 2. Originally they had wanted to get it out before Diablo 3 but it looks like they are going to be a couple weeks to maybe a month behind D3. It's already up for pre-purchase on Steam for $20. One cool thing about Torchlight 2 is that it's going to have 8 person multiplayer. One thing the first game definitely lacked.

Also for anyone that likes this style of game check out Grim Dawn. It is being made by a couple of developers from IronLore which made Titan Quest & Titan Quest Immortal Throne. Looks like it should be pretty good as well. It's going to be fast paced combat with lots of loot from what one developer said on a video.

Same. After being in the Diablo 3 beta I have a hack-n-slash / ARPG itch. And for now Titan Quest will do until D3 hits the shelves in 2 weeks.
