I've been paying Myth of Empires. It looked like a Chinese Mount and Blade Open world kind of game but really it's just a survival game with some Mount and blade like features that don't work well. Like combat, it's fairly strange with blocking hardly working, you can only command one soldier at the start and I think 3 or 5 maximum later on.
You start on a PvE world but then you can go to a PvP one so I did. I don't know... I thought to join a guild, they give you their discord and everybody communicates through that, I talked to some guy on it who had me do an interview, he said I was supposed to do a mic chat interview but I said I did not have one, I got in but the next day he was gone. I messaged his discord and asked him why he was gone and he said he just could not deal with the drama anymore, okay, I didn't know what to make of it. Very few people use the in game chat, occasionally they contact other clans but that is it, they rarely use or respond to guild chat. I think Discord kind of ruined that, people have their own networks they use instead of the central game network. But even then, they don't actually use the Discord text much, I thought that the whole guild was dead because almost nobody said anything in guild chat but one guy and people did not message in discord much. But then I had to use the voice chat function of Discord to get permission to delete my own structures and that is where I found them all, they were there and talking they just don't message in game and rarely on Discord. I kind of ignored the guild and did my own thing building my own house and not using the base but they were fine with that, though I still ended up helping them a lot by clearing iron mines of mobs and helping mine for them too, even if I would take a quarter or so for myself. We got raided a few times, they smashed outlying buildings and attacked farmers and players that were leaving bases and stuff, so I went to raid myself in turn. I'm not that high a level compared to this guild, I killed one of their NPCs but then got ganged up on by high level players and killed, I joked about it being unfair, they replied about it being war, I said I didn't care if I died I would be back muwhaha they said it was content, it was all fairly jovial. Then a few hours later they raid again using my raid as an excuse even though I had done next to nothing and they do much worse all the time and the whole guild(and server) goes spastic and says I didn't have permission to do that , I didn't ask to do that, they tell the other guild they are going to make it right and they kick me.
I don't know. It probably isn't really for me. It seems that 99% of the time you are in a PvP world you are not allowed to PvP, you may as well be in a PvE world at least you would not have to be a part of a guild that way. I'm not even sure about PvP in these kinds of game anyway, because it's all equipment and level dependent, not skill dependent plus they don't fight fair anyway. These higher level players would one shot me but even though they could do that they never fought one on one anyway. I mean I could do what they do and just find a lower level player and kill him but where is the fun in that? It's like killing slimes, they can't actually fight back, even if they did hit me they don't do anything, what's the point? It's not skill at all and all I am doing is being a tyrant. I think that sums up these kinds of games in general, it's just higher level players and bigger guilds being tyrants and stomping on lower level players and smaller guilds. There is no sportsmanship in this.
So I gave up on that and I am playing Hearts of Iron IV, there is a new DLC out focusing on the Balkans and it added railways and tanks designing too.
