Meiko

Legends of Chima Online

Recommended Posts

Well, I played for a bit more, then sent Lego some feedback with a few suggestions. Here's just a brief list of what I was thinking:

 

1. Meiko's bank, just in case it hadn't been shared already.

 

2. More varied boss battles, maybe a bit more like the second Crawley fight, where you had to figure out how to open the gate and didn't get swarmed by other crocs at the same time like the first.

 

3. More interesting terrain, with cool thing to explore like LU's statue, caves, space ships, etc. Also suggested harder creatures that once passed, will grant access to a new area. The LU Maelstorm Gorilla comes to mind.

 

4. NPCs with special mini quests like LU's. Basically, "Get this item here," "Gather X amount of this, and bring it to me," and races.

 

5. NPCs with exclusive stores that sell new items that are hard to find anywhere else.

 

6. More customization, in character (colors, eyes, decals) and outposts (Spore-like building creation. If you've never played it, it allows you to create a building from premade pieces and paint schemes, or select one you like from a list. A sharing feature would be awesome for the latter.)

 

7. Cooler armors. I mean, come on, we've got just a ton of sashes and robes with little variation. Hopefully we can at least get that golden armor shown in the sets. It would also be cool to get variations based on the different tribes too.

 

So, that's about it. Any thoughts?

They should add Speedorz as a PvP mechanic. Maybe dueling for items/EXP in a tournament of some kind?

Yeah, I'd really want some sort of PVP in the game, but they'll have a reason they'd give for why they can't... <_<

I'm just trying to figure out how that would work as a fun mini game. It could be similar to the online game, where the two race on a course, and the first one to the end wins the challenge. Maybe some kind of moving bar could be involved so you have to press a button at a certain time to get an extra boost?

That essentially describes the Speedorz game for iOS and online. http://www.lego.com/en-us/chima/games/speedorz-game/

......

Just let you transfer items?

Or make the two games connected somehow?

I don't think they'd go together very well, since one is available on mobile, and the MMO wouldn't work on mobile (and they certainly won't take something they already have off of mobile).

 

I do wish that the game was incorporated with the LEGO.com features of the Chima site, like the Chima Vault. It would be nice to get more points there for doing things like leveling up in the MMO. It is tied to our LEGO ID, so I don't think a feature like that would be too difficult to make.

Yes! And also the ability to choose from all tribes!

With the news of the new species/characters in Legends of Chima: Laval's Journey, I'm hoping we see some of them in the MMO. It would be nice to have something other than eagles telling you what to do and fighting crocodiles all day.

Yep, you sure did.I'm interested in what open beta will have different from closed. I'm guessing just bug fixes and maybe a few more worlds than just the two, but some new customizations, an actual menu for game settings, and a few other new features would be nice.

In closed beta, you couldn't. You could only choose Lions, Eagles, Gorillas or Bears. There may be more features and availabilities in open beta. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Rhinos are a "bad" faction, and are allied with the crocs, ravens and wolves.

I'm excited to see what's changed. Hopefully I'm not disappointed! :P A bunch of my friends over at Brickipedia are also quite excited. The game is quite fun when you can do it with friends and discuss it over a chatroom. It's much more cooperative, and goes by faster.

The site is still offline, but.... You can bypass the maintenance message by going straight here: https://na.chimaonline.com/en/ (The link only works sometimes for some reason. Enter it a few times for it to actually let you in) From the looks of it, there is a membership that you can buy, but is optional, but also means that the F2P part will likely suck.

LEGO® Legends of Chima™ Online is free to play but becoming a member gives you access to a slew of added benefits and conveniences. Members can unlock advancements for their hero and Outpost, gain access to exclusive areas and items, and all members get a drop of Gold Bricks, the in-game premium currency!

I doubt I'll be paying for it.... just not something I feel I'd care for enough. There's also a redemption feature, so I guess there will be promo codes for different things and whatnot.

It is quick and easy to redeem a code! All you need is an active LEGO ID account with an existing character!

According to an official post on the LEGO Message Boards, the game should be up within a few hours. Hopefully they are right, since it was already scheduled to be up on August 1st.

True. I would have expected Warner to know not to make a promise that they could hold to them. If it were me, I would have made the first announcement say "Coming in August" if the game wasn't near finished. :plain:

Why am I not surprised.... From what I can gather, the problem I'm seeing is with the login feature with the LEGO ID. The cookie doesn't seem to write properly or something. :???: I would leave my opinions there on the LEGO Message Boards as well, but I can't convince myself to scroll down through all the spam and flood of emotes and exclamation points. <_<

I'm still using the same name and currently am at level 14, hoping to reach 20 by the end of the night.

Oh come on! :P I just got to Level 7.
