I personally don't say themeparks or sandboxes are better. I mean they all have their time, in a seperate way.

But what i really don't like in this new era of MMO's is that most of them changed a lot the gameplay, not looking more like a typical MMO. There were a lot of them that made sucess, but some just fall on desaproval because the game itself started to become a "bot-controlled" or moved by cash itens, or just the developpers get tired of creating new cool events or important things and start making non-sense appelative uploads. What makes the classical MMO's become boring.

This new era  is indeed  necessary, but, for inovations, new way of questing, this genious instant event system, etc. But still, there are some changes that just don't need to be changed, i mean, the portals everywhere, the way the game turned out to be an action RPG online instead of the RPG itself, the unique class system.

I'm not saying isn't nice getting fast to where you want, but, you still get lost with the portals, there should be another way of travelling dispite walking by foot (that's very boring too) or justspawning where you have too. There should be a medium beetween them.

And i'm not saying that actions RPG aren't nice too, because there are a lot of increadible ones. I just want to play again one RPG that i have to click arround to move, attack, act, use hotkeys to use itens, skills, spells and watch the field from above. But again, looks like all of the new-era MMO's just got the same boring gameplay.

I don't want you to get me wrong,  just my opinion

I think it's great that games like Tera still have an audience.  I enjoyed it for a bit, and wouldn't want to see it go under.

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

I really like the combat in TERA, too bad the combat alone couldnt carry the game for more than 2 weeks for me. It was really fun to kill BAMS for a while, but when the time came to do something else, the game ended :/

Yeah it is just temporary to fool around with the combat system. I am waiting for Darkfall: Unholy Wars to be released.

I will also be checking unholy wars but will still be checking into gw2.

Dont get me wrong I like the old mmo's like EQ1 and AC and even UO but I can not bring myself to understand if no one likes the newer games why do you all buy them then complain there not like the old ones. I mean no offence to anyone by saying this but if those games are so good why are you all playing whats new?

This is something I dont understand I loved EQ alot but in time I just got to the point it was not worth the monthly fee for most games I in fact quite using X-box  for my online gaming through console because they added a fee and bought a PS3 even with the hack I will not go back to the box. But even with MMO's why move away from the good games to get into the new. I did not go to WoW at launch it was not until BC was out a month that I got into WoW by  then EQOA was dead on my server like maybe 300 players on at the times I played I still played EQ1 and EQ2 even during the WoW time cause I had a station pass but I dropped them all when I started playing F2P games and at that time there where a few hundred on the market. 

 

So again I ask if all the games alot of you say are really great games why dont you guys and gals still play them and why did you leave them to begin with I know SWG reason  but did not stop me from logging in ever year one or 2 times to just enjoy the game.


To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

Tried it on and off for a long while but every time the UI and combat puts me of... and I hate scammers which seems to run rampant in that game.

Scammers are a part of the game in EVE. They're another type of enemy you have to watch out for. They don't have players like that in Darkfall?

And honestly, Tera? If you like games like Darkfall and UO, I can understand you not liking GW2, but Tera? Pffff, okay.

And you're seriously butthurt because ArenaNet are making money off of the gem store? If this puts you off, you're going to have a very hard time playing anything at all very soon. Microtransactions are the replacement for subscriptions. Subscriptions are dead. Pathfinder Online is using microtransactions instead of subs, too, you know, and it's the "next big" sandbox game. Gonna skip it?

Calling something the "fast food equivalent" of anything would be considered bashing it.

It was awesome the first few years, but it hasn't aged well.

I only played EVE very briefly, and I could name a few surface problems with it, but one of those problems would definitely not be how well it aged. In fact, it probably aged better than nearly any other game of its time.

Just play EVE for the simple fact that it is the best sandbox option available, not because it's the game that suits your exact preferences in every category. Play it until a high quality, regular combat (avatar combat), sandbox is released. If you can allow yourself to like EVE, you might just surprise yourself and find it worth sticking to.

Made a blog entry about my final verdict of GW 2 and moving on.

An excerpt: 

"So in hindsight I can say that GW 2 was well worth the box price but it is not like an MMORPG of the past, like Asheron's Call and EvertQuest, which would hook you for months, even years. Ultimately GW 2 (and most ThemeParks) is like the fast food equivalent of MMORPGs, accessible and really nice for a short while but quickly gets boring.


Also, not long ago, they announced the next "content patch" for Guild Wars and it was mostly about structured PvP, which is GW 2's equivalent of instanced PvP scenarios/battlegrounds and it was the least appealing aspect in the game for me. More over it seemed to be done in a way for you to buy tickets from their cash shop which is pretty telling that their first content patch was about getting people going to the cash shop.

Kind of expected for a game which does not have a sub. fee but which rather relies on box sales and the cash shop and I predict, that once the box sales start to dwindle, they will be focusing on adding content based on you as a player going to their cash shop. That probably being the case I wont be doing back to the game until the next expansion or if they add some purpose and meaning to the Zerg fest which is currently the very dissapointing WvW PvP."

Typical sandbox elitist...bash all themeparks and compares them to some old sandbox type game that in their minds was the best ever. Even though those games had super small sub numbers.

 

It doesn't matter to these guys because even though  they bash all themepark games..they only play themepark games and never support sandbox games.

 

Here's a tip sandbox elitist..next time you say you are going to stop playing a themepark game because it's the "fast food equivalent of MMORPGs", throwout that you are going to play a sandbox game not another themepark. Honestly, your whole point was destroyed by you in the title of this thread.

 

You have a 0 cred rating...

First of all old sandbox games did not have super small sub. numbers as you are comparing those times with now. During their peak, SWG, AC, UO had 150k-300k subs and that was really good for that era.

And I dont see where I did bashing of the game, I said it was fun for a while but lacks longetivity. If that is bashing in your book then you are the one with the problem.

Finally, I never said ThemeParks can be no fun. They can, but they lack the longetivity of sandbox games. So I will be playing Tera Online for a month fun or so then move on. Dont see the issue with that as that is how those games seem to be designed anyway.

yea dont listen to gthat guy, obviously a complete retard,

300k was a huge number back then, only after TBC of WoW did numbers jump,

mainly because of casuals getting in the genre.

I'm pretty sure WoW subscribers are diminishing along with the hardcore feel. To say that one style ruins the other is naive. Both are required for a strong game, which exactly why WoW did so well so long while "hardcore only" and "casual only" games flounder.

Oh sure! Pin the blame on the casuals why dontcha!

You know, did it ever once come into your head that maybe the reason why the "evil casuals" that you loathe so much came to this genre was because someone drew their attention there in the first place? Casuals do not just pop out of the ground one day and decide that they want to ruin the genre for the evulz. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if most casuals didn't give a flying fuck about this genre until somebody raised the alarm about it.

Sounds about right.

 

They should really be focusing on WvW, it's the best part of their game, and has the room for the most improvement too.

Because those games no longer exist. I cannot go back to when DAoC was good, or when UO was good.

Why don't you go back to playing flash games or whatever you were doing before you "discovered MMOs"?

Wow.  Some farily caustic replies to what seemed a fairly well reasoned, thought out blog post from a personal perspective.  If someone figures out they don't like something and decide to share their reasons why the animosity?  It's just personal opinion.

For the record, I think GW2 has staying power for the people that like it.  Whoa!  Crazy.  But if you don't then don't hate them. What is wrong with you?

The GW2 fanatics are quite possibly more annoying than any other brand to have cropped up recently. The SWTOR ones were bad, but they melted away because the game was bad and failed, so they had nothing to really go on.

GW2 being a decent game, it just makes the fanboys more rabid. They won't accept ANY criticism before saying "Well its not like that on MY server!" or "well then don't play it!"

That being said, GW2 playtime has been in a steady decline. It'll be interesting to see how populated it is once it has leveled out.

Step back (and a few side steps) in some areas, a huge leap forward in combat over GW2.  I blame Tera for making GW2 combat system feel that much more clunky and uncomfortable.
