The Help Channel

Posted by on Dec 10, 2011 in Fallen Earth, Guides | 0 comments

The one thing that sticks out when you enter the Fallen Earth game as a newbie is the help channel. Your chat window starts rolling with questions and answers almost immediately. And as somebody who’s monitored the help channel for a long time, there is no question left unasked and only CAPS LOCK is ignored. I dare say that the presence of the help channel was one of the things that kept the game alive. It made the new player feel welcome, and it’s been said on many occasions what a friendly community this game has.

The drawback of the help channel is the fact that in order to keep it functional, it has to be policed hard. Off-topic chatter or guild recruiting is usually quickly criticized and suppressed. Roleplaying has to be limited to other channels and even the use of foreign language is limited to a sentence or two stating that somebody is looking for fellow players from his country. At first this rule seems discriminatory, but it is the only way for the GMs to monitor the channel for content. The rule has indeed lead to a couple of couple of harassing statements, but even that could be stopped quickly.

The Fallen Earth webpage has a post with frequently asked questions here, but I want to expand on it with the experience of the first 10 days since F2P. I have however some secret (and now not so secret) objections about a help channel FAQ. It’s based on the tendency of the human nature to be to lazy to research and to read and adventurous enough to go out on their own and see what happens.

And here we are, enabling human nature, helping the lost adventurer. Stay tuned for an FAQ in the Guides section

Everquest II Grandfathered Characters

Posted by on Dec 9, 2011 in Current Games, Everquest II, News | 0 comments

After some discussion ensued among the F2P players over access to existing character with premium race/class combo, Everquest II producer Smokejumper announced this today:

*Every* character that was created before 12/06/2011 at 12:01 am will be grandfathered in without race or class restriction. This means that regardless of your membership level, you will be able to play any character created before 12/6 without paying for race- or class-pack unlocks.

For any player that previously subscribed to EQII Live servers, or as a Gold or Platinum member on EQ2X, we will also refund all the class/race pack purchases made after 12/06/2011 at 12:01 am and before the time of this posting (12/08/2011, 4:30pm) so that no one loses any SC due to this change.

The Ultimate Guide to Fallen Earth

Posted by on Dec 8, 2011 in Fallen Earth, Guides | 0 comments

A complete guide for Fallen Earth V2.0, Free-to-Play has been created by “Red Falcon”, clan leader of Death Row Loot Party. The guide aims at covering all the basics a new player needs to know, starting with installation and the user interface all the way to maps, character builds and selected mission guides.

Like we do in every game, DRLP created an Ultimate guide to the game itself, including all the informations the game doesn’t tell you, in an in-depth, accurate way.
The guide is constantly updated as soon as we discover something: every day something new may be present.
If you want to contribute you are free do to so and we thank you for that.

It’s a good idea to send people in need of help from Help Channel chat to this guide, in order to clear most of their doubts and have an answer to most questions packed in a link.

Here’s the guide: http://forums.gamersfirst.com/topic/233598-the-ultimate-guide-to-fallen-earth/
