Perhaps on some random redneck alien planet.

 

PvE game - Check

Horrible animations - Check

Badly optimized - Check

Tons of bugs - Check

Going to be released before it's ready - Check

 

It's Funcom alright.

Wasn't even worth the 10 minutes it took to install.

Well, I hate to mention the obvious, but it is still in beta (even though they don't have near enough time left before launch).  And I also think that sometimes FunCom games need to steep in their own broth a while.  It tenderizes them and makes them more flavorful and less, I don't know.....ewwy.  That being said....I understand your revulsion.  The FunCom name alone makes a lot of people cringe.

 

Myself....I'm going to wait a few months on this one, BUT....I'm still very intrigued.  I have definitely NOT written it off.

I love the recent statement by Funcom that the animations were just "placeholders". So they're going to go back and totally re-do ALL of the animations? Before release?

 

Riiiight.

I strongly suggest stick with it about 10 - 15 hours.  Take your time and don't race.  Try to do the Polaris Dungeon if it's open this weekend.  Definitely try the investigation missions (the green ones.)

Curious as to what your opinion will be after some time.

Delaying release would be the smart thing, hopefully they use this BETA event well and get things optimized.  I didn't have a huge problem with animations as they are, I did have a problem with the way the game runs.  But that is what BETAs are for, getting things optimized with lots of players connected.  Their quests are pretty creative and the voice acting is good.  Lack of PVP focus turns me off though.

Stop saying its Beta. Launch is only 1 month away. If game is still in such a current state, I can see where this is going.

Agreed.

Anyone whi sin´t 100% die hard fans of FunCom should probably wait 9 months after launch before buying any of their game though. They actually make good games but if you dislike bugs you will do yourself a favor if you wait until they are fixed up.

FunCom actually have many good things too but they do release their games far too early. And it is too bad, AoC would have done so much better if they just waited those 9 months.

....oooooor, they already have many of the animations prepared and will implement them in a later beta, but were trying to test a different aspect of the game which may be slowed down during a beta test because the entire game isn't being loaded for this part...

Let's try to use our brains before we just go off the deep end...

Sadly, even though I am in the beta, I can't login.  The client says it does not recognize my graphics hardware or drivers.  I think it might have even said my OS.  So apparently it's not optimized for all Radeon cards yet, although....I didn't think the Radeon HD 7450 was all that unusual.  /shrug

 

I'm having to go by what other people say on the beta for the time being.  I'm hearing good and bad both.  I'm just going to hope for the best and keep listening to what's being said, wait a few months, and see what people are saying then, I guess.

sounds like you might be trying to start the direct x 11 try launching with the directx9 one

It's a funcom game and EA is involved. People never learn. Why would you support EA in any way, and even if you don't care that EA is involved, it's funcom, so at least wait for it to release so you can know if they've managed to actually put out a finished product for once.

Someone mentioned in the settings option about switching to DX9 fullscreen instead of DX11 helped them.  And the Radeon driver is up to date?  Other than those two things, I don't know what it could be then.

I've already uninstalled, in less than an hour of gameplay I've crashed a dozen times either at loading screens or during random gameplay (fps would drop to a crawl suddenly, then just crash entirely) and had to remake my character 3 times as, during the crashes, the character would somehow get broken and just logging into them would send me crashing to desktop.

Most games have fps/optimization issues during a beta, GW2 had it in droves, but at least I could like...play...through the lag. But this is far, far too reminiscent of AoC in the beginning. TSW is going on the waiting list for me, I'll check back at the end of the year, and only because what little I did get to play was entertaining.

If this game is ready for release date in June than GW2 should have been out for like 3-4months now.

sounds  like issue on your end.. been in closed beta for couple days now not a single crash.. although we are on a differn't server.

It's easy to see the potintial in this game and the skill system is cool but the game in it's current state does have a lot of issues which I think Funcom is going to be hard pressed to fix before launch.

Character creation options are very limitied.  Yea Yea it's beta but I heard that excuse for both Rift and TOR and what we saw in beta was the final character creation options.  if any game should support a large set of character creation it's a game like this.  Especially with cloth be appearance only which is a great mechanic IMO.

The game is very poorly optimized right now.  Same as above as for "it's beta excuse".  I expect this will get better but I doubt it will be great before launch.  Maybe 6-12 months after launch but not at launch.  My video card fan runs at highest fan settings as soon as this game starts up and never cuts off no matter how low I turn the graphics down to.  My computer can handle this as it's well vented but it's annoying to have a game like Skyrim run wisper quite but not this game.

The animations are horrible right now.  Again they will probably improve but before launch I doubt will be where I would expect them to be for a 2012 AAA game.

Combat isn't really that interesting.  It's fun to play around with skills and setup your action bar but once you start fighting things it just doesn't feel responsive enough for my tastes.  I think the Tera and GW2 betas might have killed tradational MMO combat for me but I do still raid in EQ2 and even compared to that I think EQ2's combat flows better than this games.

While some of the missions are pretty interesting the bulk of them are fetch/kill.  Also the lore really takes a back seat to the less interesting missions at least from what I have seen.

Overall I would say that TSW has the promise of being a great game but needs a lot of work to fulfill it.  Much more than 30 days of development will support.  It's a shame really because it looks like it could be a great game but it's going to relase half finished and die the slow death of a almost great game.  It has a lot of company to keep in that regard.

Doubt it, I'm not the only one with the problem. Although there could always be things like graphic card compatability issues which would account the wider spread of crashes. I don't think it would be a server thing, I think it's just one of those optimization things games frequently have problems with. There's so many different drivers and setups, you can't account for it all except to deal with the problems as they come up, which is why I'd rather wait for those problems to be dealth with, than try to make a character for the fourth time.

PvE game - Check

Horrible animations - Check

Badly optimized - Check

Tons of bugs - Check

Going to be released before it's ready - Check

 

It's Funcom alright.

Wasn't even worth the 10 minutes it took to install. 

 

lol it's Funcom. Even if i had a mail with a beta key, i wouldn't even bother opening the mail. 

Funcom digged their own grave with AoC. Alot of ppl won't have faith in a new mmo from that company.

Riiiight.

 

....oooooor, they already have many of the animations prepared and will implement them in a later beta, but were trying to test a different aspect of the game which may be slowed down during a beta test because the entire game isn't being loaded for this part...

Let's try to use our brains before we just go off the deep end...

Do you really believe that's possible? REALLY? 

I get that you're already a fan of the game, so there's no way I am going to convince you to be objective here, but do you REALLY think they have the "real" animations somewhere, and just decided to leave them out? Something so crucially pivotal to people's perception of the game is just left out of the beta? Are you completely mad?

I have done this enough times to confidently say that what you see today is the final product.
