Skyforge offers a peek into its distortions

    
15

Distortions are one of the newer features in Skyforge, guild-exclusive 10-player instances that contain a mess-load of monsters from all of the factions. Even getting into one is challenging, since guilds have to search for one all across the game and then coordinate well to progress through all of the tiers.

Maybe you want to have a look-see before taking one on? Then you’re in luck today, as the team has put together a quick overview video showing you what you might expect (other than a faceplant on the floor) when you dive into a distortion. Check it out after the jump!

PizzaDoh Their systems are ass backwards.
Their “filler” mobs are the real danger of a fight, because the do as much damage in their unavoidable basic attack as larger mobs do with their highly telegraphed attacks.

The spark payout pr mission run do not scale with progression, so while early progression is rapid you quickly find yourself having to do more and more instance runs to unlock single atlas nodes.

Maxing certain classes can make or break the game. The more severe example is the paladin symbol that makes you invulnerable for x seconds any time an attack would take more than 10% out of your health. It is almost as if they tossed that in there knowing they had screwed up the mob design.

The game is as burst centric as it gets. You can easily find videos of people using the kinetic class to speed run instances. This to the point that the bosses do not have time to engage their mechanics.
One may wonder if they didn’t build and mmo, but a puzzle game where you need to find the one intended combo of stats, class and symbols to progress, with gotchas everywhere that will permanently hamper you.

PizzaDoh I tired the game and i fully understand why people are not talking about it. 
This has to be one of the most un-social mmo’s i have ever played if you want to even call it that. The chat system is completely borked. Even if u want to block a gold seller you have to go into full screen menu’s and even then finding the ones is a chore. Whenever u finish a dungeon and u pick up your rewards you are kicked out of that group right away, no questions asked.
ppl hardly talk in chat , partly bcus they have no clue hot how to switch to group chat and u can add all the non talking ppl that u usualy see these days in all f2p’s.
Next to that it doesnt feel like a world at all. you go to 1 hub ,select a thingy to do on a globe and teleport there. once your there it feels like a medium sized map, all of them do and like a singeplayer game with some other ppl running around doing the same thing.
the skill system is also for me way to simple but that seems to be the thing for all new mmo’s.

PizzaDoh I kind of liked it, even though the bulk of the game consisted of endlessly repeated minidungeons. I even unlocked a whole bunch of classes, maxed two and was close to maxing a third. However, when they launched the racing “event”, I suddenly felt an overwhelming feeling of pointlessness and I uninstalled the whole thing without a second thought. We were not made for each other, Skyforge and I.

PizzaDoh The class balance and bullshit slot machine events killed it for me.

PizzaDoh I lost interest as well… One reason being MONK being to weak xD AND also the auto locked ranged attacks from mobs are annoying as hell. There is no travel speed for projectiles as it stands. When the projectile is cast and your character has not enough life to take it, instead of being able to shield your self or fine a way to avoid the damage, the game just locks your character , you cant do anything until projectile collides with you and you die…HORRIBLE system :P
