OP  10/03/12 9:43:30 AM#1
Ok in the USA its not 18 dollars but in the UK its 11.49 uk pounds which roughly is 18 dollars . So my question for UK players is it worth the inflated subscription and to USA players would you play it if it were 18 dollars a month in your country ?

Nope, I would only play it if its F2P or didn't have a sub.

I guess it depends on if you enjoy the gameplay or not.  Otherwise, if you pay a sub until you've exhausted the content, which I've heard doesn't take long, you won't be too out of pocket.

Oh absolutely not. It's your typical WoW style themepark, but they put a bit more effort into the quests, at the expense of the game world.

 

Look at it like this, do you mind paying monthly for a fairly short linear singleplayer game with bad combat? If yes, then go ahead and play TSW.

just thought this was funny "typical wow style thempark".

TSW is a pretty cool game, I'm currently playing after buying GW2 and finding out that is is the real "typical wow style themepark" and really boring as hell. TSW is different and if you don't want different then don't buy it or pay the sub.

Combat: its the first MMO in years that I've got excited about the combat. looking at other AAA MMO's out there TSW's combat is much better.

Dumbed down: Now if you are like the standard WOW or GW2 Player where you can't really build a character to be your own then you should pass on TSW. TSW actually makes you think when you play and when you build your character. They don't AUTO build your character like the others do.

Quest: in GW2 I really didn't have to do anything to complete Quest or whatever they call it. In TSW you have to think and sometimes actually look for help.

Bottom line: TSW is different and harder than any other MMO out there right now. Also because the talent tree and quest aren't so easy it weeds out the kids too so that makes it much better.

Not sure why you have to be so agresive and bring GW2 into the conversation? This unfortunately happens with every TSW thread, some TSW fan has to bring another game to "defend" theirs..

Both games are fun and worth checking out. The question is werether or not paying a sub makes sense.

I think they seriously should adjust the UK fee so it'll be more near the monthly fee in other countries for TSW. That said, I'll always consider the sub fee for an MMO cheap (regardless btw whether I think an MMO company deserves to get that fee, which in the case of for example lazy ass WoW devs they don't).

I don't know how it is for other people on this site, whether they've a good job or how much pocket money they're left with after all the expenses. But to me, 15 dollars, 18 dollars, it's peanuts. When I go out a night with friends, going to a restaurant, or a club, or a movie with snacks and beverage, I've easily spent 50 dollars in a few hours. A couple of drinks in a bar, exactly the same. Heck, 3 lunches at my workplace's restaurant and I've already lost about 15 dollars.


That's why I'm often dumbfounded at seeing how fussy people can get on these forums about such a low amount of money, especially when seeing the age that many are supposed to have. I know the economy can be bad, but most entertainment activities cost quite some more than 15 dollars, often for far less hours of fun and a lower return on investment.

I think the "Its really not that expensive, especially compared to other entertainment activites" argument is really shallow and just plain wrong. You can't really tell other people how to spend there money and you don't really know there situation. Besides that compared to the gaming market mmos have been horribley overprised and the mmo gamers have just taken it in. And even now with so many F2P options and B2P might make a stay in mmos the price for a sub just doesn't make sense for me to pay in the context of the gaming market.

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

10/03/12 10:27:43 AM#12
To me, no game is worth any subscription.  IMO if a game can't make it on box sale and/or non Pay2Win CS, then it's probably not worth it.

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

I'd say it is at least until you finish the storyline and do the dungeons (excellent design on the boss fights, BTW), it's definitively worth it. It has an excellent story, great atmosphere and very good community, plus solving the investigation quests gave, at least to me, a kind of satisfaction I hadn't felt outside of the classic point and click adventure games of old. Plus, even the first dungeons can have boss fights with mechanics that rival raid ones in other games.

After that, though, your mileage might vary depending on how much you like dungeon/lair grinding for better loot and deck building (unlocking of abilities and creating the perfect setup of abilities and gear for each situation). Once you're done with the history, all that's left is lair grinding (grind harder open world monsters to collect drops that will let you summon open world bosses, which also drop other objects to summon bigger, harder bosses), dungeon grinding (5 normal dungeons in game, then the same dungeons in hard mode + 3 more dungeons that only have a hard mode and then the same 8 dungeons but now in nightmare mode), plus repeating the missions in game (almost all except history and investigation can be repeated every 3 days) to gain more points to unlock more abilities.  IMHO while the monthly updates are great, they're not reason enough to subscribe (the quests can be done within a day or two, and most of them are investigations that are great but not repeatable). That said, there's a new raid coming out later this month, plus a new adventure zone early next year.

So to sum it up:

If you like good stories, the horror setting and exercise your brain with the investigation missions, definitively worth until you're done with the story, which some people were done with in a couple weeks, personally I wasn't anywhere near it (I was starting the 5th out of 8 adventure zones) after 2 months playing.

Not worth after that if you don't enjoy dungeon gear threadmills, if you do, however, it's some of the best boss fight designs in MMOs these days, plus a new raid coming out this month.

If you liked 1 but not 2, still worth checking every few months or so to do the new monthly content added.

What can men do against such reckless hate?

I do think it is worth it because I think this game is amazing; however if the sub fee for the UK is drastically over the sub fees of other games then it should be adjusted.  I know they already lowered it once, but may need to do so again to be more in line with local prices.

I dunno, if a game is fun, its worth whatever the sub fee is.  I currently pay 45.00 a month for 3 accounts in EVE because that's the way I enjoy playing.

Absolutely worth the subscription. What is that for you, 2 beers out on the pub a month?

For me in Oslo, Norway its more like 1 beer... 

But if you cant afford a couple beer a month you obviously should not play this game either.

 

Also the game do have alot of content. There is quests enough to keep you going a long time, and when that is done you have Nightmare instances, Lairs, and pvp.

I really dont understand why some people claim there is little content, unless they spoiled all the quests and skipped toward endgame as fast as possible. There is a ton of content, quests, things to see and get. 

I have alot of fun in this game, im sure you will as well!

If I enjoyed the game? Hell yes. This applies to any game, not specifically TSW. I used to believe F2P was the inevitable future everyone would have to learn to adapt to. But seriously, you get what you pay for. If the current P2Ps are able to storm this current fad they might be able to navigate the storm. People pay for a product they like. If it's F2P they might blow the same amount as a monthly fee on a novelty item. But somehow if you frame that exact same expense as a sub fee they immediately clam up. P2P is a model that serves the gaming community better in the long term.

only you can decide if its worth it. its not for me, but your experience may differ. try the 3day trial and see.
