This went open beta today.

Black Prophecy
Gameplay


I've been playing it for a bit and finding it a nice change of pace to Eve.

It's a twitch flight model, and very different to Eve in most respects, but i can see me playing both.

It's also much more like Diablo than an MMO - Lobby based i believe, and limited to 20 players per instance. Not really an alternative to EVE, though they compliment one another in a way.

No, no it isn't.

It still isn't an EVE competitor, and this is still thread 2147483647 mark 2 on the subject.

I've been playing it for some time, but it turned out to be quite boring after a while. Advancement slows down extremely fast after one finishes the extremely long tutorial. Besides that, the missions tend to be extremely hard sometimes and in some other occasions they are pathetically easy, in my opinion the cryteria are completely random on when they are hard and when not.

Besides loot scooping is troubling, tonns of other problems.

And terrible client crashes :/

Not like eve, not even similar (as the creators highlight pretty often). I prefer eve with my normal overview and no problem hitting enemies :P


And not to mention some enemy NPCs who are insanely hard to kill, but if you manuver them into flying into a tight passage after you, they get locked in the corridors, then you just turn around and slaughter them without any problem. So either you spend hours trying to kill em, or bug em into death without a problem.

I have found it very hard to hit the small npc ships but then I discovered guns with have a limited auto aim function. It makes killing the small ships much easier.

But I have not persisted with BP. It has super shiny graphics but the gameplay is mundane.

I played the closed beta, but apart from having graphics that make EVE look like Pong, the game is really poor. Doesn't hold my interest. Shame too, because CCP need a good competitor to give them a kick up the backside.
