Really want to know your thoughts on online paranormal/supe themed games like Vampire Wars. Do you play any? What are your favorites?
Vampire Wars from Zynga is the only one I play. It has taken me a month to get to level 83 or so, not get creamed in combat and have a decent size clan of great clannies.
I have spent up to $40 on Favor Points -- they allow you to move and advance faster because you buy energy. You also buy cool avatar outfits with FPs or Blood.
In Vampire Wars one is represented by an avatar; I am Simpatica. The avatar has skills that you "buy" with "blood" which you obtain fighting other avatars or going on missions.
Now, lest you think this means you play a Nintendo-like game where you are manipulating characters on the screen, I have to say all you do is click. There is no animation. The computer picks the best attributes for fighting. The missions require a certain level of energy and skills or items. You win, buy, are gifted/loaned or borrow the items.
In fighting you have skill, abilities, clan size, their abilities, and rage points (how many times you can click to fight. You look at a list of other players and choose one you think you can beat based on skill level and clan size. It is tricky. As you fight you lose health which you have to buy back with blood. And, if you are not playing, people still attack while you are off board unless your health falls to low. So before you log off you try to run it down.
Are you confused yet? I was, It took me a month and joining a group of lovely and helpful people who work together to help each other. A very nice player adopted me and has been advising me on clan and strategy. She's been very helpful.
I haven't decided if it is fun yet. It is the perfect foil for an Obsessive.
I have resolved not to spend any more $$ on Favor Points. Until I decide otherwise.
