It’s no secret that Ring of Elden caused a stir in the gaming community. Stealing the show, this game won over fans with its intricate combat, extreme level of detail, and of course, the wide-open world for players to explore. But it seems that’s not all Ring of Elden has to offer. It also makes a splash as a comprehensive social media platform.
Longtime fans of FromSoftware games know that a messaging system similar to a social media platform has coexisted for years. Players can leave messages on the ground anywhere in the world, but they cannot write anything. By using pre-existing word patterns and sets, players can create messages that are primarily about gameplay. They can also leave a “gesture,” which is basically a character’s emote.
This message is then available for other online players to view and potentially interact with. The purpose of these comments is for other players to rate it on a scale of good or bad. Regardless of how it’s rated, it gives the message composer a little health boost. In addition to adding to the number of ratings of the post. Think of Youtube’s Like vs Dislike options for videos. However, in this situation, players will not be able to see whether the given ratings are good or bad.

Although this system has existed for Demon’s Souls, Ring of Elden seemed to improve those messaging capabilities. This is due to a few factors. One being the vast open world available to players and the application these messages might have. Just as the fact that the Ring of Elden has become extremely popular. While dark souls is a popular game with a strong fanbase, Ring of Elden is the hottest game this year. That means thousands more people downloading and joining at speeds that dark souls never seen.
One of the things Ring of Elden has done extremely well as far as this system is to find the balance. Players can find all aspects available on any of the popular social media platforms. While also making sure to keep it clean of all the stuff that ruins those same platforms. This includes the dangers of harassment, bigotry, spamming, and hateful behavior. It is also important to note that these are issues that many popular online games, like Surveillance and COD live.
The disadvantage of Eldin Rings The messaging system is too familiar
Although there are some downsides like trolling and misinformation which are always a problem, overall Elden Ring’s The messaging system adds another level of fun and excitement to the already excellent gameplay. This system helps players in particular through the ability to share important and useful information about the world around them. Think of it like when Google Maps alerts you to an upcoming speed camera. Players can leave messages like “Trap ahead” or “try to summon”, to give players a little edge.

The best advice players can get in this game is that their death is inevitable. No matter how hard you try, you will experience death in one form or many forms. With the ability to leave these messages, players have time to prepare and improve their chances of survival. However, be aware that some messages may not be as easy to understand, such as “group ahead”. But given enough time, slang is easy to understand.
As for some confusion with messages, other players can add to clear it up. For example, a developer placed a message next to a statue in Liurna, “Erudition”. This was to help players unlock a nearby magic door. However, just using the gesture is not enough to work. A message placed nearby by another player reads “Try head”. Because players can also see the ghostly figures of people leaving messages, they would have noticed this ghost wearing one of the Glitter Crown Helms. Like a puzzle in an escape room, by combining the pieces together, players can realize that the scholarship gesture only works when done with the barbell.
The ability to add messages like the example above, or to help report trolling behavior creates a situation similar to message boards. This is a perfect workaround for otherwise one-way messages. It also allows free space for players who don’t want to be bothered by message spam. Which, personally, saves the sanity of many players.
Ring of Elden Allows Elden Memes
It seems like all forms of social media need to have the ability to share memes and that’s just another reason why Ring of Elden corresponds to the invoice. Besides the possibility of giving important information about quests, puzzles and the route to follow. Many players have started leaving messages that match the memes. Players can find references to The Lord of the Rings, other popular games, and even old ones but goodie memes that only older fans might understand.

The ability to embed memes into Ring of Elden, allow gamers to have a little more creative fun while they play. And of course, with the ability to add gestures, there’s a bit of humor that might be more sexual than players like. But overall these are lighthearted and add a bit of laughter to the mix.
Ring of Elden can be a tough game and the ability to group up with friends is an amazing feature. Along with this, players can communicate privately between the party. A great thing about this private group chat is the fact that players can share their experiences even when others are not actively online. The only downside is that there is no name stamp with the message, so players will have to figure out who it is from. But if you’re playing with friends, chances are you already have a good idea of who might have said what.
