OP  6/17/12 8:03:45 PM#1

There is a lot of negativity on these TSW boards here from beta testers, it was kind of bumming me out. Then I went on the official forums. 

 

It's like night and day. Everyone loves the game there, and the same concerns that are pointed out here (combat, cc, animation, replayability) are addressed and laid on the back burner with people still having lots of fun exploring and investigating. 

 

This confuses me.

You realize this is MMORPG.com right? Of course there is nothing but negativitey on these forums, go to any game forums on this site and you will see it. I learned long ago to only read these forums for entertainment and nothing more.

No that surpising. Fans hang out there everyone else hangs out here and from what I have seen it seems the boards are a lot more haterish on just about every game.

Yeah, I found it kinda odd too. I took a glance there, people were very likeable, some were very smart and intelligent (followed some puzzle threads, they were mindtwisting O_o :-( ), but all in all a nice atmosphere. Which is sort of odd, it's been a while but in the months before TOR launched there was a lot of bickering and vitriol going on on the official TOR forums.

Maybe different groups of gamers, and different expectations?

Im not talking about fan love/hate but about the fact that combat in this game is perhaps the aged feeling i get when playing it,

its reminding me of some old, what to call it, nes game? i like the looks, i like the environment, but the combat is just to

lacking.

Everyone will always have varied opinions on games.  I loved and hated TSW and unless they fix some things will not be paying for it when it comes out.  However, I currently pay for and play 3 mmos so my opinion is different from someone who currrently plays none or one.

 

The game to me was quite impressive from the atmosphere, graphics, investigation, ui, originality etc.  The sluggish or clunky controls were too much for me to look past, but someone who like graphics or setting etc won't care as much.  I'm the kind of guy that cares less about that and more about smooth gameplay and combat which this game does not have atm.

 

Go by your own opinion when you play beta or buy it and try it out and cancel if you don't like it.  It seems this game is far away from release when I play, but again I'm a stickler.

Honestly this site has become about the worst place you can go for an opinion on any game, forums wise.  This is the place where anyone who has ever been burned by an MMO comes to seethe with hate and spread it, and it's been years since I've felt the need to post but this is a perfect opportunity.

Simply put, take everything you see here with a grain of salt, all the hope is gone.

It depends which forum you are on.  At the official site all negative threads get removed from general and many get deleted.  If you visit the open beta 1,2,or3 forums are plenty of complaints.   Anything very negative will get removed though, they deleted my beta review but didn't give me a warning or ban, think I wasn't constructive enough or maybe there are other posts pointing out the game is not ready to launch and needs another 6-12 months.  

The funny thing is I posted in the general forums, then it gets moved to "off topic" then to "beta 3" then deleted.

Hope vanished when the internet turned into a cesspool of ppl with "i dont give a shit i know better, fuck you" attitude, its

not only here, its everywhere.

In line with what I read in another forum thread, it is the changing of times. Where as MMO's used to be full of mature adult players, they are now filled with kids. The assumptions for this were varied (industry's fault for themepark games, etc.) but REALLY the problem is computer's becoming cheaper, as well as the internet being affordable (and almost available everywhere). I say this because when MMO's were first gaining popularity PC's were still not widely owned like they are now (and high end systems were even more scarce). Also parents made their kids go outside, where as today it is normal and OK for kids to be on the PC all day. 

So with that said, a combination of everyone being able to own a PC, and parents allowing kids to play on them as long as they want... the shift is that you get younger and younger gamers, so hence the immaturity compared to how things used to be.

The folks on the official TSW forums expressed their concerns about the combat animations and feel during the first beta weekend. The devs responded by saying they are working on it. Then the forum members accepted that and moved on. That doesnt happen here. You will get new threads started about the same old shit on an hourly basis. People have a hard time letting go and moving on around these parts.

I disagree. At least on this site you get a variety of views instead of the circle jerk you get from most of the offical forums.  The rest of your post I agree with. The diversity would be great if people could actually learn how to respect other peoples opinions and not feel the need to attack anyone who disagrees with them. As someone else said its not just here it's the internet in general.

It really isn't that unusual to see diehard fans hanging out on the official forums and praising a game.  But as with most things, even on this forum, things should be taken with a grain of salt.

The FFXIV beta forums were full of praise for the game and how awesome it was by the diehard fans, and look how well that game turned out.

Judge the game for youself by playing it, not by comments on a forum.
