Vanthia Open Beta [javascript mmorpg]
« on: September 16, 2011, 07:30:02 am »
Some of you may already have heard of it (mostly when I spoke of it)
But the Vanthia Open Beta has begun.

You need a facebook account to play:

I have tried it, it's pretty cool. I like it that you chose Facebook, but you don't have those Profile Spam messages :D

Looks cool, but I don't think I'll...ever...get a facebook account.

No offense, but one of the reasons I'm not going to try it is *because* it's on FB.  It means that I have to play it on a spammy, slow, flashy advertisement-ridden website, and I'll be constantly asked to invite other friends to play it and will recieve other people's invites as well.  A no-go for me.  :/  Perhaps move it to a specialized website?

Sounds pretty nice, if it won't spam all of my friends. Looks like it won't.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

This signature is ridiculously large you've been warned.

Just because it *now* doesn't output spam, to be successful on FB *all* popular games output it.  It probably doesn't now because it's in open beta, it hasn't gone gold yet.

I don't think you should complain about stuff that doesn't exist in games. You are saying they will someday have profile spam. You are not in charge of that decision. Therefore, you do not know if it will or not, you are guessing. So don't complain about it, until exists.

What you can do, though, is recommend that they don't do it. But that's not what you did.

Well, I did act constructively, in process of suggesting they move it to their own website instead.  And, I still don't see your point :/ no need to be nasty.

He isn't planning to get any facebook spam anyway, so you don't have to worry about that.
And I myself am playing on the standalone client (which doesn't require facebook), but you need special privileges to open an account there (which still merges with ur FB acc)
But he isn't releasing the standalone yet since it requires some more tweaks.

I think I'll try it out later today. Maybe you can show me around?

Sure, just whisper me in-game. (/w Ikkerens text ftw)

Well I've tried to get it to work, but a combination of me using HTTPS Everywhere, firefox-nightly and issues with Facebook and SSL I can't get the game to load at all.

SSL is currently disabled in the game.
Facebook is "supposed" to give you a prompt about that?
