      What the hell is wrong with this game?

      There are gankers every fuking where on this game. No matter where you go, deep black zone or near town portals is all the same...

      What I am supposed to do as a solo player If i am getting chased by 10 people party. Even on tier 3 horse and tier 4 flat gear you get chased and killed by groups and groups and more groups there is nothing left on this game for solo players. Absolutelly nothing!
    • Hello BluesJD.

      It's very difficult to do solo black zone - I just avoid it altogether.

      Corrupted dungeons are a good way to get pvp and silver (from killing players). If you are a gatherer it's pretty rough as roads have pretty bad resources (over picked).

      The good news is there is an expansion hopefully coming in a few months that will give more options to solo players.

      u can do corrupted if you want a fair fight.
      if u dont want to pvp then why play albion? play animal crossing. u can fish, build a house etc.
      So your point is, get a group or leave the game? Are you from SBI perhaps?

      I play Albion because I like PvP. But the concept of PvP is player vs player not blob vs player. If Black Zone can not offer a fair PvP enviroment then perhaps you guys should stop claiming this game is switable for solo players.

      Trying to look tough wont solve the issue (nice try tho) ...Quiting the game is not the solution but thanks anyway.

      I know it is hard to understand the concept. Let me explaing my self better.

      I am not going to be part of the same fuckiong problem joining the cowards that are chasing solo players everywhere in game. When I mean I play solo, it means I dont need a group of 10 people to kill another SOLO/DUO playrer

      That being said, If you think that killing solo players in gank parties is how you "Learn to play" then you are totally wrong and you probably dont really know how to PvP
    • Black zone is always about bringing a bigger group. In fact, open world gameplay has always suffered from this since Albion has existed. It has lead to solo players and small groups quitting the game as no content existed for them.

      The biggest population increase the game ever got was when they introduced Corrupted Dungeons, which allows for players to have fair fights. The biggest population decrease they have had appears (?) to be when they nerfed corrupted dungeon loot, in preparation for the Lands Awakened patch, effectively increasing the win rate % needed for corrupted dungeons to be profitable for the average player.

      Despite the "praise" on forums and reddit that the Lands Awaken patch has received, the population of the game has decreased back to its overall average - the "Corrupted Dungeon" population spike is gone, and I expect that the year following the Mists patch release will see the population begin to rise strongly again.

      TL;DR - When content is made for solo players, the game population rises. When solo content is nerfed or restricted, the game population sinks.
    • @VseOtlichno dont bother with these people
      the next you know is when the mists come out for Solo players
      they will also complain about how unfair being Solo ganked because some weapons are OP like blood letter

      or some new abusable meta like during the introduction of corrupted dungeons
      Hp stacking, reset meta, healer meta
      devolving into the madness of CD balancing

      one can only assume what will happen when the gloves of healers are taken off (-30% healing debuff)

      well its literally a skill issue. a lot of albion streamers play solo. they are fine. and not only the CD ones. equart plays open world solo. did he have to die a lot to learn the game? yes and now he profits from it. there are SO many mmorpg's that dont have full loot drop. if you dont like the pvp of albion, then simply pick a game you like. soon is mist update, but you will probably complain they have higher IP. What solution do you expect, that SBI changes the whole core of the game? leyvi, equart and many others play solo in the black zone. you probably pick the most populated gate and have 0 awareness. you like PVP? well this update today is for you. you can do a corrupted dungeon and go next right after killing your enemy. its literally 1 on 1 and u get all his loot + chests. go ahead and get millions, or maybe you're just not good at pvp?

      According to you, my problem is that I still dont have the skill to solo handle an entire blob of gankers chasing me like you claim I should. And that if I like PvP I should be able to solo handle them, kill them and get all their loot, just like a streamer... Dude you really need to start playing Albion instead of watching 8 hours of stream to claim skins.

      I like PvP and I admit I am not good at PvP and I dont see any issue with that honestly... I mean, most Albion players like PvP and few of them suck at it but they still like the game right? As I said, quiting the game is not a solution... You just dont quit everytime you get frustrated, at least that is not me.

      If a streamer in 8.3 - 8.1 gear is able to kill a 10 people party roaming open world that does not mean everyone should be able to achive that in order to play Albion or be good at PvP..I mean.wtf is your point? If that were the case then Albion community would be less than 10 people
    • You need to learn the game. Understand what timers certain maps are too busy to go in solo, what maps are quiet etc. Another part of the learning experience is dieing, a lot.

      Every time you leave into the BZ you should accept the fact that gear is already lost. If you happen to return with it, then consider it a win. Given you're going out in 4.1 gear, who cares if you die? You are wearing 10k-50k worth of gear. You're not going to be able to 1v1 and win anyway.

      You will need to learn that even if you play in a group. When a stronger group meets a weaker one, the weaker group escapes and often times there is one player who they decide to chase after. This scenario is very common. Escape is not a guarantee, but if you know how to do it you have a high chance to run away.

      Unless I play with a well organised group, I have more success solo than in a group. I don't like to play solo because it is boring and very hard. If you like difficult gameplay grind on and learn how to solo this game.

      Always bring a double bladed staff when solo to halp you escape and swap to your real weapon when you do pvp/pve.
    • try to not demand solo content in MMO (you are ruining the genre)
      find a group or make friends with people who has same interests as you. SOCIOLISE!
      do stuff with them
      Join a Guild
      fight to conquer territories
      try to defend your territories (for next time you log in, you had place to go in black zone to make some profit)

      This game is group content oriented and I hope it stays that way forever

      That's the mechanics of this game. Red is dead, Welcome to Albion online! You have to learn and adapt.

      MMO and hardcore pvp game.
      I would like to see the economy after removing every solo content.
      Btw I like the idea, gathering only from titans(80k+ hp), no gathering nodes/mobs,
      for crafting you need another players help
      (+1helper/item tier), no solo dungeons, every open world mob 30k+ hp, etc.
      It sounds fun.
