Game is mmo througha nd through. A good one at that. 

Where was that when I was playing this last weekend?

Most of the community seemed to consists of elitist comments of 'go back to WoW', or 'you guys are idiots for asking for help' or 'nobody help him! let the noob figure it out on his own'.

Definitely seemed like players who wanted to figure things out by communicating with others were told to 'go back to WoW', while doing the quests in isolation were viewed as 'the right way to do it'.


I helped people all last weekend.  I did that most of my time actually.  I saw tons of people helping out.  I have no idea what you're talking about.  Unless it was questions that were being asked that people put no effort in trying to figure out for themselves.  Fans of TSW want you to atleast try and figure out the answers, so you'll experience some challenge.  Instead of people getting all the answers without thinking and blow through the content, then come to this site and post how boring and no challenge the game was.

PRETTY MUCH THIS.

Community can HELP you solve stuff or use some slight hints.

But no one is going to just give answers directly because half the fun is actually figuring stuff out. 

In that way it really works better if you are playing with someone else who is just as clueless as you are and you figure out stuff in a group :)

Ive had enough fantasy mmos to last a lifetime in the form of wow, i don't think i could play GW2 for this reason, it would be just like playing WOW but you walk around and automatically pick up quests and do the mission. TSW setting looks awesome, mostly steven king esk which is awesome!

I find this game fascinating.  To get the most out if it I have decided to follow these principles:

 

Pay close attention

Take copious notes

Extensively mark and label map waypoints of possible future interest

Google everything

 

I also suggest becoming somewhat more powerful than entry level before doing investigation missions.  Chances are they will take you into some dangerous areas.

 

There are some great puzzles to be solved.  There are all kinds of references to other cultural aspects of our real life society.  For example:

Bannerman

Elm Street

Solomon Priest

Poe Street

MKULTRA

Revanant

 

Also, turn off general chat to avoid spoilers.

Funcom has partnered with MMORPG.com

What kind of "partnership" are we talking about here?

TSW is my new obcession after playing for the first time over this past weekend (never payed attention before BW3).  Funcom delivers challenging scripted PvE like no other (AoC raids were my fav all-time), and this Darkness War dungeon sounds pretty twisted.

After years of searching for a goddamn good MMO I've finally found my fuckin' holy grail and I love it. It will be great to share this amazing game with like-minded folk. See you lot on the other side.

I had an absolute blast this past weekend and trying to compare TSW quests to GW2 is beyond me. GW2 hides questing behind Hearts and DEs but you still have to kill x this or that as others have said. I can't remember  in my time beta testing GW2 did I have to step back like I did in the quest Something Wicked or the Black House etc and really think about what I needed to do to complete it. They are two completely different games and bashing one or the other is really tasteless, but the same people over and over continue to do so, maybe their life sucks and need to feel good about themselves by putting other people down or a game.

I also tried to help people but when I got a repsonse after I gave the person a hint on how to do it of "You suck" I sorta stopped helping people. In addition the same players kept spamming chat asking the same questions repeatedly, that does get old especially when they were not really all that hard if you took your time and thought it out.

I also did both instances and they were both very smooth and polished, and not 3 hours long, so hearing about another new instance is very nice and I am sure it will be fun. After all isn't that why we play games to have fun, I know I do.

I'll play the story line then quit.  Sad this isn't a co-op single player game.

you obviously havent been out of kingsmouth lol :) wtg with that sjit

I played the beta this weekend and played GW2 last weekend. I have to say, Im longing to play TSW more. Once you get the hang of it, the game really drew me in. All the different skill combinations should be a blast and the quests were fun. The enviroment was different and it was nice to play a non-fantasy enviroment for a change.

If they can get the pvp right, this game may hold me for some time.

Love the setting and story but oh my GOD is the actual gameplay bad. Not sure if I'll buy. I expect it to go F2P soon. My money is better spent on GW2.

This is a good game with a very unique setting. It wont be for everyone of course.

Its sad how the GW2 fanboys/trolls are doing everything they can to bash this game and turn people off from it when  honestly the type of player who plans to play GW2 probably wouldnt be interested in TSW anyways. 

Ive played both betas and all i can say is GW2 has better PvP and thats about it (and maybe not even pvp since we havent seen what TSW's will be like yet). Other than that TSW's world and story is 100x more immersive and interesting than GW2 super generic fantasy setting that has been done ad nauseum. Both have good graphics and art styles. GW2 combat at the moment is more fluid and has better animations. TSW's leveling is slightly better although both are good.

when i first got into the game i found the graphic was good and the UI was clean.

 

however, the gameplay did not start quick enough for me. there were lots of slow pace conversations at the begining. speed things up here a little bit would help (tbh i almost fell asleep in the first 15 mins doing the Dragon storyline).

 

cutscene has potential but still need improvements. not closed to swtor standard (apology to make comparisons, but i feel its reasonable to. they are both mmorpgs.i am not going to compare it to mario or tetris)(fyi i dont even like swtor). really need polishing. for example, eyeballs of player character had no focus, no direction etc. also it felt wierd to have NPC talking by themselves all the time. player character never speak a word. this was intended but yet after a few convo it did feel really wierd.

 

ok. so i followed the butterflies got into Agathar and reached Kingsmouth (very L4D is Kingsmouth). this was where i really get to try its gameplay. was kind of meh. the graphic was really nice but the gameplay was very tab targeting (i am sorry for those of u who really like this game but i am just being honest here, dont feel offended). i did not see much variation between different weapon playstyles. ok hinder them and follow up with this. afflict them and follow up with this.

i didnt fully believe when i read about a concern re character combat animation. but it was just that and it was not good. top part of body and bottom part movement did not sync well together. really need to fix this soonish. oh and have u tried /sit with a female character wearing skirt. its not nice for children. pls have the female sit animation changed!

 

quests are very generic. but ok most mmorpg games got generic quest style, i can live with that (although i did hope they did try something different like in GW2. ok some say they mask the quests and present them differently. i say yes totally. if only for nothing eles, the masking and different presentation alone do help so why not have them). the quests are however very heavy on details and this can be good/bad depends on each player. theres a lot to read, if u like obtaining a massive amount of info. a lot of stories. unlock more clues. if u like this feature, then i suggest u try it. u may well like it.

 

the world was very funcom style. multi instanced maps. each map has a fairly good chunk of area. but it did not feel persistent. oh and despite very good graphics. the immersion was somewhat... i should say... disturbed. imagine hell broke loose, zombies everywhere but yet those NPC guys were like hey its all good ere. we are enjoying it like this. i need a lot more intensity in these darkdays and hopefully it will be added.

 

lastly i would rather not comment much more on the value/price issue. box fee + sub fee + cash shop. seriously? i have no problem with all these costs as, no bs, my income is USD10000 a mth. not exactly a professional footballer or golfer wages but i absolutely have no problem spending a couple hundred USD on games. but still, i dont see TSW as a good purchase here. some of u may well enjoy it so good luck to u. i want to be able to enjoy it and hopefully it will be improved to a level that i do. but as of now is a no go.

95% of the negative post about TSW come from those people. If you see a bad TSW post look at the poster history. I promise you will see pages and pages of GW2 praise. 

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

I really look forward to playing this game Full Time and slowly walking toward enemies while firing off my Shotgun.

That was just... enjoyable in this last weekend's beta test.

But man, I'm strapped for cash right now....
