Legends of Aria resets karma system ahead of tomorrow’s early access launch

Where am I? No one gets to know.

With its early access launch happening on Steam tomorrowday, Legends of Aria has been shoring up its headstart. A “high volume of traffic” made logins a problem last week, though that’s the kind of problem an online game prefers to the alternative. After a minor rollback issue this weekend, servers came down for a hotfix to fix guilds this morning and it’s smoother sailing.

Citadel Studios has been doing more than focusing on stability, though; it’s also tweaked ore prices, fixed crafting orders, adding mission-givers to outpots, and made sure shops are properly vending hearthstone. Perhaps the biggest fix is to the karma system; over the weekend, Citadel reset all negative karma across all characters “because [the] Karma system had some edge cases in it that caused many people to lose large amounts of Karma when it shouldn’t have.” The karma system itself has since been tweaked to avoid those “edge cases.”

Massively OP’s MJ took a look at the headstart last week; you can check it out right here. It’s pretty!

I LOVE this game, but there are some pretty messy bugs in there. Combine that with the fact that this game is for a pretty niche audience and I think it will be review bombed to hell.

This game is absolutely not ready for Steam release. There are bugs in some very basic systems. For instance, carpentry craft-orders asking for the non-craftable version of items so they can’t be completed.

There’s a fun title for people looking for a UO-like experience buried underneath the problems.

Niche game with lots of bugs and a poor explanation of mechanics, if this manages to keep a “Mixed” rating, I’ll be surprised.

I couldn’t get past the movement and combat, especially the combat.

let’s not forget that the carpentry orders that you can complete often give rewards for recipes that don’t exist, or recipe rewards that you start the fucking game with.

i think it’s going to be hit hard.

Launch has been a mess. Numerous rollbacks, server crashes, bugs. They went to far as to rollback the server to allow people to reclaim land because they weren’t aware of taxes being due.

Steam launch tomorrow will unfortunately destroy this game with its reviews.
