    If you like sci-fi settings then check this one out.



    Copy pasta infos:
    General
    Face of Mankind is a Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) Action RPG in a single persistent universe. You will control a single character in the science-fiction game world.

    Once installed on your PC you will have access to an ever changing game environment via your internet connection. Thousands of players throughout the universe co-operate, compete or co-exist in a realistic and futuristic world of the 24th+ century.
    The skill and luck of the players from rival factions change the balance of power. Players have full control over their gaming experience by creating their own rules, faction hierarchy and story.
    The objective of the game is to evolve your character to its ultimate potential, whether that is the accumulation of wealth, power, social status or all three.

    Factions
    Eight factions make up the fabric of the society. Each faction can bring a different atmosphere to the game whether by war, control of a colony and its mines or undermining prices on the market.

    Factions are led by a leader who is elected by their members and who uses their abilities to take colonies, make deals with other factions to help control the market or hire out as mercenaries. Individual players are citizens of the Dominion, banded together in their factions they become a force to fear.

    Background Story
    By the end of the 22nd century, the overcrowding of Earth’s cities, the growing drain on natural resources, and the memories of recent violence caused mankind to desire new and remote locations to start their lives over again. The International Space Administration’s colonization efforts provided the perfect solution – distant havens for hundreds of thousands of Earth’s citizens to take up residence. As colonization efforts spread and the Vortex-Net brought humanity to the stars in ever-greater numbers, mankind’s footprint became more noticeable on a galactic scale.

    This reminds me of SWG, Even though I didn't fight in that game (I was a trader) I loved it immensely. I can't wait to try this.

    This game isn't meant for the masses, it's a closed community so keep it that way, Jesus.

    They are, I joined thinking it would be fun, all we have is idiots who try to do anything.

    I wanna get out but don't know how, my option is A) go to Merc camp, tell them I want to die like a pig so I can join their side.

    L.E.D Constantly Berate each other, and clusterfuck Tokyo and NYC, it's stupid as fuck and they berate each other to a facepalming level.

    The graphics and such look strikingly similar to Anarchy Online. Please tell me the community and gameplay aren't that bad, too.

    If you don't join the FDC or the LED, the community is fine because only the idiots wanting to be army heroes or power hungry cops all go there.

    Gameplay is good. I haven't really played that much but it seems politics have a lot to do with it.

    LED are assholes.

    The FDC is less of that but I think thats because they are at war with somebody right now.


    Update on the BoS: Poor as shit, the VI and the FDC want to start a war with us, and we are struggling to hold onto our last planet: CD.

    Edited:

    Any way to delete characters or clones?

    Kill yourself or get killed. Only way. And I love how we brotherhoods are all passive about the FDC considering that they have a fucking factory on CD and we got missions to kill the FDC and the leaders wont let us do them!

    I just started, it seems like the best way to make money is to carefully mine and produce objects then trade them with another colony.

    Oh, and do the patrol and guard duty missions for your faction, you get a sort of paycheck that gets payed every 8 hours.

    Gonna start making some guns (Being a Brotherhood now, crafting weapons is a good way to earn money as it is a objective) and sell a fuckton of them. I can give you two some special low prices if you give me something back :smug:

    Is there like a faction in this that resembles the EDF from Red Faction: Guerilla? If so, this might be worth checking out.

    LED or FDC.

    Think of the LED as the Police, and they are able to arrest and such.

    The FDC is the Military on the other hand, and they can do what ever the fuck they want.


    Despite these two factions being quite close together and allied, and part of the government, they actually don't get along quite well.
