    Just sw the vid for the ASI series. Those models look Much more fitting for weapon types then anything that has been in game so far. They actually look formidible and not like a 3d cut out like we have now for pistol looks in game.

    I wil admit that the Fire Forge series rifles look decent specially with all the attachments on them but as for the other weapons including the ML series they look more like something you rent at a laser tag or paintball gaming zone.

    If you guys keep up that amount of effort and detail with the rest of Arkadia I am sure there wll be more then a fair share of converts from the MA / FPC managed planet(s)

    I don't think planet partners are allowed to target for Calypso converts mainly. I would say the Arkadia weapon style is "different" from Calypso not "better". However one thing is certainly better!! The weapons evolving as they get to higher levels! That was someting I certainly missed on Calypso... but I have to say that the rifle reminded me way too much of a Halo3 weapon. I don´t know why but I thought I´ve seen that allready how boring.

    yes love the way they look different on higher levels and imagine how they look with added scope and amps on them. Can't wait to shoot one of them !

    I agree with you here. The quality of the guns (well... actually everything!) looks first class and amazing. I agree if this quality of work is maintained, Planet Arkadia will have no trouble in getting people over to the planet.

    I know new planets are suposed to attract new players and Arkadia will have no problem in doing so. I just see more naitive EU players migrating here then FPC thinks will simply because of the effort that these guys are putting in. FPC seems to be just stuffing half ass efforts with a little rework of the crysis based pre existing models into the game just to get people to spend more.

    The Arkadia team is working towords bettering the quality of what they will be presenting in both looks and game play. FPC is not doing this and are simply throwing things into the game in hopes of boosting spending by the player base. VU 10 was exciting even with all the bugs that came with it. Once they got the hang of working live with the new engine it seems all they strive for now is their own wallets and not actually growing and building on the new engine. From VU 11 on its just become a digital dump for these guys to throw stuff in.

    I am positive Ozi and the crew here will put a serious hurt on Calypso in a very short time. Its really not all that hard if one actually gives a dam about what they do. So I shall bide my time and limit what I do in game more and more as we wait for the day Arkadia goes live.

    I even have near 1k ped in Alternaive rock I brough back from RT sitting in storage waiting to be fed to the tt for the move.

    I get the feeling about this as well. Which is fine with me :)

    Oh man, you are way ahead of me. Looks like I really need to put my foot down and start saving up.

    I love the gun 's evolution it is an awesome IDEA.

    But what stuck out to me after playing for 2 years now is, I found out what BLP stands for at long last lol. Binary Liquid Propellant. Geez, I have not seen this anywhere, where it explains about BLP. So happy I learnt something about our Universe today hehe :).

    Really? BLP is actually real technology from RL.
    The mention of what BLP is used to be on every discription tab of each item that used it.

    Im aftually hoping for a new type of weapon specific to Arkadia like say maybe one that uses magnetic principles to fire projectiles. (AKA "Rail gun" irl) there was just a news release on Military.com about the record setting fireing of the biggest working "Railgun" not too long ago.

    I had seen the wording for BLP before but had to go and check it even after years of playing EU. I had Ballistic Liquid Projectile in my head and was like..ahhhhh Binary.
    The guns having evolution like that is a standard on Arkadia. No two weapons will ever be identical with different stats.

    Happy to hear you guys getting ready to explore Arkadia when we launch. Just remember in your savings plans, when I announced first half 2011 I definitely did NOT say 30th June 2011 - it might launch sooner than many expect!

    SOONER!!!!!

    I am not going by your release date but the typical MA stndard time for things like this. I was thinking theyd get to it around Octoberish to be honest. Anything between now and my birthday in June would be be incredible.

    You do realize that we will be terribly disappointed if Arkadia doesnt come online before June, don't you? :)
    I know you won't but please please please please don't pull a neverdie and release something that isn't finished. We are more then willing to wait a bit.

    We aren't rushing anything, we have a date in mind for launch and everything is on track to meet that. I certainly realise that you will be disappointed if it isn't out before June 30th, so I wouldn't have made that statement unless I felt 100% sure it will come sooner than most expect.
    We won't be announcing a launch date until we are well underway with our testing and QA. We'll do our best to keep you informed of progress.
    The best tip I can give to help you predict when we launch is to follow the story, when the story ends, the planet launches.

    Sooner? Lol I wasn't getting my hopes up about that.... but I guess now I am :D


    That sounds good. Indeed, take your time. I hope to see everything as polished as possible; if the planet needs more time, please do take it :)

    I love the story so far. I'll be watching it closely!
