Quite right, Anfindel, and mostly the point I'd like to make. If they want to copy a mechanism, ToEE is a good choice, in my opinion.

Ddo was absolutely awesome and much better than bg3 from a complexity and rule viewpoint. But was always too hard to find people at your lvl to play quests. And the lack of enough solo quests made you simply stagnate without online friends.

Somewhere I dream of a DDO 2 that can just do everything right, but it is but a dream. With BG3 it is just continued refinement of Larian's cRPG's and it's good to see and play each iteration. We have one working in a realtime version of what DnD would be like that way and one trying to recreate the table top.

I would pay big $$$ to have a DDO 2 done today.

DDO these days is 1000x easier to solo, you can easily do about 95% of the content with one player and maybe a hireling here and there. It is a bit dry though so to actually enjoy most of it a friend will help a lot.

DDO was the first MMO I played. I don't know exactly when I first joined, but I think it was right after guilds were added, and I played regularly up until mists of ravenloft was added. That went strong for a while, but then it started getting hard to fill groups so I left. I have tons of good memories of the game, and I very much enjoyed the amount of build versatility it had. The build I ended on was a charisma-based purple dragon knight paladin/monk. Charisma to hit and damage, shortswords to stay in monk stances, insane heal amp. It was a bit subpar on damage, but it was a lot of fun being practically immune to all traps in the game, having very good self-healing (consecration ftw!), oh and I had like 120 intimidate too which came in handy sometimes.

Anyway, it was definitely a good time and I would probably still be playing if there were just more players to play with. And if anyone here was on the Orien server, this is Witty. I apologize for hitting you with a pumpkin. Or skull. Or for the few unfortunates around during the artificer buff bug, both.

yeah the rules changes will TAKE GETTING USED TO for many old school D&D gamers.

DDO works on D&D 3rd ed and worked out REALLY WELL. Even in an MMO, it FEELS surreal like a 3D experience should feel like.... with 6 member parties TOTAL FUN!!!

BG3 is a simplified D&D game. We probably would have given a ruleset like this a few hours of play on hte table and thats it....

But BG3 might SURPRISE. its brilliant game development and Im excited to see what this big team of developers can pull of!!

Ass Gary Gygax said about the rules....


Games give you a chance to excel, and if you're playing in good company you don't even mind if you lose because you had the enjoyment of the company during the course of the game.” ...

AND

“The secret we should never let the gamemasters know is that they don't need any rules.”


This is why DDO works, and is STILL IN ACTIVE DEVCELOPEMENT after 15 YEARS

Where are the OLD SCHOOL GAMERS and how DO YOU LIKE the potential of Baldur's Gate 3?

We are definitely looking for feedback from the gamers who played the turn based D&D products of years ago.

Oh heck yeah, I played all of that. I am old enough to remember the first "personal computers". =)
I was obsessed with Pools of Darkness when that one came out. <3

I remember conquering the Well area in Pools of Radiance.

From that point on, my party insisted on using the Well as its base camp -returning to the Well to rest in safety, chat over roasted mob burgers and drool over new loot and gear.

Yeah, it was mostly in my head, but it was a golden time - years later BG2 Strongholds made this more of a reality.

Call out to DDO players!

Who's planning to play BG3?
