Yeap. People applaud for the simple things they do yet disregard moderate issues.

@cake404,
The majority of it is empty wilderness. There are set places that they don't show you that have world events that can spawn. You constantly have to fly around following a player made map out of game, or you just fly around aimlessly hoping you are going to find one eventually. Yes there's small clumps of wildlife every once in awhile, but other than that, again, you have nodes every so often that drop mostly useless stuff because you are really only going for masterwork for crafting and epics for consumables. But most of it you can never end up using all of it or you don't have enough to do anything with.

As I said before, it would be nice if there were roaming mobs carrying a supply crate to another settlement. Kill the roamers, get a chest.
Being able to turn 10 green embers into 1 blue, 10 blue into 1 purple, etc.

You are told through radio communication that a world event is near. Why not expand that radar to 1/4 of the map and show current world events that are able to spawn. Problem solved.

Copy and pasting randomly clumped mobs every so often doesn't fix the problem.


I would agree that the crafting system in general could use a whole bunch of improvement in this game. I would also agree that it would be nice to have more variety in world events, where they might involve NPCs, friendly or hostile, traveling across the map for whatever reason (with friendly NPCs you couls jump in for an escort mission). It would make sense for these kinds of events to be broadcast to a wider range, maybe even to the whole map, with a heads up ahead of time (a caravan requested a Freelancer escort, etc – or Corvus learned about an enemy caravan and wants you to ambush it, whatever works).

 

However, the way the current events are set up, they’re supposed to feel like emergencies where you just happen to show up at just the right moment. Having them happen all over the map would create a ton of distracting notification spam. And marking spots where emergencies will happen would be weird, because that’s not how emergencies work. Nothing’s stopping you from looking them up on the wiki or learning where they might happen though.

 

But I still suspect that part of your issue may be that world events are spawning at a lower rate than they should, for whatever reason. When I’m in freeplay, I rarely feel like it’s empty or like I have to look for events or things to do. If anything, I often wish there were less events happening everywhere I go. I think there is an issue where the server may stop spawning world events properly, for whatever reason, and they need to fix that first. Otherwise there isn’t much point implementing bigger and better world events if those won’t end up spawning properly either.

I am quite disappointed to see the current state of Anthem, so do my friends. Before Anthem gets back on track and improves, we would just stick to other "finished" games.

I haven't gave it up yet I don't have much to do besides wait.

@buddahcjcc,
If you are using a metal material on your armor, you can only pick different colored metal as default like nickel, brass, ETC. Except for the preorder legion of dawn armor which is metal and you can actually color it.
If you are using anything else, to the very right of the "box" there is a rectangular box at the end where it will show a color. Click that small box and it will pop of the color window where you can pick a preset color or create your own. If this doesn't explain it well, just look up on youtube "Anthem how to color your armor" and there are plenty of videos that will show you what Im trying to explain.


Took me 71 hours to figure that out lol

Same here, really.

 

I defended the game in the demos, "in the release build, all this is fixed!" and tried my best to convince my EA hating friends it wouldn't be a dumpster fire. Lo and behold, many told you so's came my way.

 

Then I had to convince myself "its just issues caused by the day 1 patch, they'll fix it within a week".. After two weeks or so, I realized it will take much longer to fix the problems that keep popping up, and no one from EA was talking.

 

The loot didn't really bother me, not as much as the extreme frame rate drops, but then I finally got the Endless Siege I was after. I was so happy to finally have a massive upgrade from my epic Torrent, and then I used it in a mission. I actually felt weaker. It was like I was being punished for upgrading.

 

I really, really, really want this game to be good. I want the loot to be satisfying to acquire and to use, but it's not there just yet. So I'm gonna sit back, play something else for a while, and wait for Anthem to hit that point.


Im actually using weaker builds than I could because the purples I have have luck on them and I can get better masterworks lol

I´m stuck with "The Division 2" right now... having a blast in this one because everything feels rewarding, even when dieing and there is so much to do in Endgame, only 10% of it could already help Anthem to be a great game.

The World from the division 2 even feels extremly alive and it feels like 10 times as big as Anthems freeplay.

 

 

Inbetween i´m still playing "Borderlands 2" and every now and then "Borderlands 1"...... Borderlands is just the mother of all lootershooter and you can still have so much fun after all those years of playing.

I don´t get it why Bioware didn´t take any inspiration from them to do things right.
