It’ll take you a half a year to walk across Chronicles of Elyria’s continent

When Chronicles of Elyria comes out, players will find that they have a lot of terrain to explore. How much? The developers said that it should take players about a half of a year to walk from one coast to the other.

“It takes [half] a year in-game to traverse the continent, it takes the same time for someone to traverse the US,” Soulbound stated on the forums. “In terms of actual land, it’s almost exactly the size of Taiwan and larger than over 50 different sovereign nations.”

The dev team also put out a huge article today discussing land ownership and the various titles and positions that go with it. The team said that it might not even apply to some players: “If you’re planning to just be an adventurer, a humble craftsman, an explorer or cartographer, or even a miner, chances are good you won’t need to know any of this for a good long while. Titles and land management truly is a game all-in-itself and not everyone will want or need to play. Actually, not a game. A dance. The dance of dynasties.”

They really messed up by comparing things without a set constant. If what other people are saying is correct then it takes around 48 hours to run from one side of the map to the other. They used in-game years to describe this but used real life size to compare the size to Taiwan. I know half a year sounds impressive but you are just confusing everyone.
48 hours to traverse continent (which is the size of Taiwan). 48 hours amounts to half a year in-game time. That is what you should have said.

Jownz People don’t realise how small a niche hardcore pvp players are. They are a very vocal niche, but small.

fangGWJ Those are my initial thoughts too.  Thinking back to Vanguard which was massive and took forever to get anywhere, and hence most of the world felt dead or poorly thought out.
If they do go down the massive world route, they need to have fast travel to group members or hotspots of activity.

That seems… ambitious. It’s hard to not feel the hype machine and see the truth through it.

When did this community get so whiny and negative?  Some of you need to take a break from gaming.  You’re like a broken record in every column.
