You really don't have a clue do you? This comment is so far from the truth that it is unbelievable. How on earth can you possibly say this is a WoW clone? It is furthest from WoW than any MMO and it looks, feels and plays nothing like WoW. I suggest you think before you write comments in future. To deliberate miselead people in this way is tantamount to being an out and out liar.

 In all honesty..I think you wrote this thread to be able to get "your"  own distasteful ideas around TSW confirmed , your whole post reeks of trolling and make up's hidden in one or 2 excuses to why you even wrote this post..You say It's not a bash post..Hmm really ?

If those really are the feelings you have towards TSW after playing the beta, then there is NO reason for you to even consider TSW much less listen to reason why players actually likes it..Your post is a lie and a trolling attempt..

Or do you say that If someone actually succeds in writing a good reply here you would consider it again ?

TSW brings back oldshool gaming in a new package for me..The Skillwheel and the combat synergies gives me flashbacks to AO and even SWG. On top of that it looks ok, and is something new and refreshing :) I'm glad I bought TSW

TSW is in no way how I would see my perfect MMO. But it is different enough to keep me interested for some time, although I doubt that I will play it more then let's say half a year.

See it like this. If you've eaten lots of apples in your life a new apples must be really, really nice to actually be different from all the other apples you've eaten. On the other hand a pear will be a nice variation on your daily diet and therefore much more enjoyable. Even though the pear may have some bad spots and a pear isn't that special to begin with. 

Me, I'm eating my pear at the moment, while waiting for my lychee.

The setting/environments are stunning. The zones are huge and packed full of content. There's a sense of life and activity, no matter where you go to explore. There are actually hidden places to find and explore in the first place. There are dungeons/areas that are so dark you need a flashlight. Puzzle and investigation missions are very much da vinci code and sherlock holmes style. The game is hard.... not brutally hard, but harder than any MMORPG I've played in a long, long time... call it "challenging". The people, factions, corporation, quest givers, have a presence in the "real world"... they have websites, phone numbers, etc... and exploring this "real world" side of the game is integral to solving the quests and missions and learning about lore. The skill wheel is awesome and provides an infinite number of builds/specs, even moreso than games like GW1. You are in control of your character's progression and "levelling", and you can take your character in any direction you wish! So much lore packed into this game, it's overwhelming at times. Story-based gameplay with cutscenes and what feels like more "bonus" dialogue than SWTOR (it's optional). The stories told by this game are, put simply, 100% awesome. The ending of the main quest chain for zones 1-3 is the best "quest" I've ever done in an MMORPG. Oh ... and don't forget the setting/environments are stunning.


For me, this is the best MMORPG I've ever played, and I've played quite a few.

There are so many incredibly elongated responses to this thread, when all that's needed to be said is "atmosphere". It's another story driven MMO with great environments, which I'm sure will only remain as awesome as it feels at this moment with extremely regular content updates.

I play because I enjoy it. There is no "enlighten" anyone here, because how you feel and how I feel about playing the game are two oposite things, therefore, there will be no answer that will satisfy the OP completely.

For me it's three fold


1> Story - it's more than just hacking this orc, that goblin or 50 wolves.  Sure there's some of that with zombies and other things, but like other games there is a story to go with it, but unlike other games its reasonably fit into the story, not just an xp grab.  The overall stories so far have been pretty good, I feel like I'm tossed in the middle of a Haven episode mashed with a little Xfiles and a sticky spot on my shoe for Lovecraftian-eat-your-face.


2> Atmosphere - every time I turn around, I'm wowed, perhaps not entirely through 'just' visuals, but the audio (how many games actually let you know your walking in a sewer pipe, then gravel, then grass, then a wooden deck only to jump over a fence and into something thick and wet (not water like a sludge or slime), the story, the overall feel.  I try to ignore the ho-hum character generation and some of the animation quirks, but when your shadows move around you with the time of the day, and inside buildings through the windows - lots of effort many other games just gloss over.


3> "This Sandbox is not for kiddies"  - there is no golden mark on the map for you to follow, sure there's an arrow to take you the right area, but in a lot of cases there's no walk through and you need to use your brain, your worldly knowledge or barring that your search engine skills.  This will keep some of the script kiddie pwnzords away I hope. When you're leaping lasers, pulling lamp shades and smacking your miners helmet because the batteries ran out - we'll be there with others that want to be there in this genre and after the freebie periods those kiddie whiners won't.



Really there is another for me, my secret #4 - the fact my wife pulled this game out of the ether, I'd dismissed it for something more mainstream, and in the past 12 years this is the first time she was willing to play with or without me said something about how this game grabbed her and I needed to get a copy and have a deeper look, I'm glad I did.



Now if there were only housing....

As with every game I play it for fun and to have a laugh with friends, the game also appeals to me because being a big Lovecraft fan I love the whole creepy horror feel of the game.

The look and feel of the game are excellent and I really enjoy the missions and actually having to think about what I am doing for once, the story and voice acting are both top notch as well. There is room for improvement with certain things especially the PVP but im sure it will happen over time.

No MMO is in a finished state at release anymore, even the almighty WOW wasnt fully finished at the start. The trouble nowadays is that because of the monopoly WOW has all new MMO's have to get released as quick as possible to get their slice of the pie before the next big thing comes along.

Every MMO release is the same there is a mad rush to play it at the start by the games actual fans and WOWtards alike. The games fans play and enjoy the new experience they have been looking forward too regardless of any niggling bugs etc while the WOWtards bitch and moan in game chat comparing every little thing to WOW and saying the game should have this or that because WOW has it. After a couple of weeks the WOWtards lose interest and crawl back into their holes to go grind the newest bunch of mindless daily quests in WOW leaving the original games fans to carrying on enjoying  it and having fun.

Not sure why it bothers other people that there are players who enjoy games that those said people do not enjoy.


I do not see anyone attempting to force players to play any certain game, so i guess i am more confused as to why the OP is so bothered by people who enjoy something.

This. Nuff said.

I think eve might be further from wow than tsw

But I agree tsw is in no way a wow clone, that was a ridiculous comment.

EVE has created it's own genre in my opinion, I don't think I know of a single game that even reminds me of it.

TSW is more of a mix of several types of game into one, kind of an adventure/mmorpg crossover.

... and in "adventure" I mean like in Monkey Island and similar games where you have to twist your brain to solve the different parts of the game.

Hmm, maybe you should read your own thread on why your going to support GW2, almost the same comparison.

Here's your link

I think you answered your own question, just replace GW2 with TSW.

Your language shows that you are not as open minded as you want to be about it. You right away state several biases that prevent you from giving it an open mind. It's ok if it doesn't do anything for you, but it's disturbing that you need others to explain to you why they are enjoying it, as if it's inconceivable that other people have tastes that may clash with your own.

I don't mean this as a bash, but get over yourself. You are just one of many walking sacks of preferences.

Im haveing the most fun in a mmo than ive in years. one second im killing a zombie and the next im riding a rollercoaster with spectors all around me.yes the combat is a little lacking but its not to bad and everyone has there own build.unlike most games where its just who can click faster to do more dps and here healers have to work there ass off to heal instead of sitting there throwing off hots and full heals.

Individual taste.. that's it.


It's like asking - can somebody explain to me why some people like a certain type of music, or a certain sport...


Because people have different likes/dislikes

Amazing quests.

The investigation quests are beyond good. They are damn hard but extremely rewarding when you complete them.

The best part is the fact that they will continue to push out more of these kinds of quests.


My only gripe with the game is lack of variety in gear.  It's like they were heading there and decided to stop.

FFXI and older MMORPG's are the only games to achieve this level of ingenuity in itemization.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.
