So another informal poll!  For those who have or had real issues with the animations or "feel of combat" in TSW, when was the last time you played?  I know there were quite a few that played back in beta, but I'm interested to know who has checked in since then.  Maybe give a bit more detail, such as how far you got into the game (zone- or hours-played), and/or how deep you got into the ability wheel.  How many weapons did you try?

Be honest! :)

For those who don't like TSW's animations, when was the last time you played?

During open beta (June-July 2012)
Shortly after launch (July-August 2012)
Fall 2012 (Sept-Oct 2012)
When TSW went b2p (Dec-Jan 2013)
Just recently (Feb-Mar 2013)

last i played was about a month after launch.. some were updated and made better but overall not so much.. pistol was the big one that had some big improvements especIally from beta.. watching videos of upcoming content doesn't look like the overall movement and feel changed at all which was my issue with animations.. i also don't like the look of the characters at all(personal preference i guess)

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Played the game pretty extensively.  Had all 10.2 and a couple 10.4 pieces.  PVP'd a lot.  was 61% through the skill wheel, 100% through the weapons stuff.

I want to come back, but, im having fun playing PoE and PS2.

Option "animations are fine/don´t care" missing, therefore clicked show results.

 

Seriously, I don´t see a problem, TSW animations are motion captured, but the "fantasy people" here are used to cartoony style teddybears bouncing through candyland, the whole game is simply not their taste.

The animation blending is said to be improved soon so it will look more fluid, thats about it, any more ressources going into this is a waste of time imho. This BS rumor "animation problem" is a troll joke by parrot people who have no clue anyway, about anything.

Uncanny valley is a thing no matter if some people can't see it or it just doesnt bother them but it's also why I feel in many instances its better not to take the realistic route in some games.. Some people don't notice heavy aliasing in certain games doesn't mean its not there

I played AOC from launch up until a few months ago. Loved the games graphics, story and adult world but the combat animations always looked so geriatric and unfortuantly they passed it on to TSW.  Few weeks after beta is all I lasted.

Uncanny valley is an exuse fanboys bring up whenever someone say animations are bad.

Hi Hell!  :)

Well, I'm really trying to get a picture from the people who don't like them, and that's what this poll was about -- and they have a right to their opinions about it; I personally don't have any issues with the animations, and I like them, but there are folks who have said they liked the game overall but the animations drove them away.  It's enough feedback that the dev team has made improving animations part of the list they are working on.  Again, it's all preference anyway, so /shrug...

Still, I am wondering how much of that feedback goes back as far as the beta, but not since.

lol Interesting, because I have seen on these very forums people saying that they loved AoC animations but not TSW's and visa versa.  It's all very subjective I think, but it's funny to hear what people prefer.

I've seen that MC video to but sadly they grabbed somebody off the development team and suited them up instead of a trained professional.

Looks identical to AOC same engine as does the ugly character models. In Conan I just chalked up to the fact they were all beat up barbarians and lived with it.

What I always loved about Funcom is that they made their mmos with adult content not just an mmo with an adult rating only because of skimpy gear. I wish there would be more choices out there for that demographic.

Thats bullshit. I dislike them entirely because they ARE cartoony. Some weapons are ok, but some are just far too asian themed to fit well.

I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.

To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.

QFT.

The animations are actually somewhat realistic and you may say Boring or non Flashy.

Which is exactly the way i like it.

Other games have lighting shooting out of people(i mean out of elfs or whatever other race you have in those).

Some animation could probbably be made more smooth and fluid.

But over all i think most of the people who have a  problem with animations want the flashy stuff that i would hate so much.

I played at launch, and again in January after the B2P switch. The animations have always been shit, still are shit, and will likely always be shit. That being said, the atmosphere and story can't be beat by any other MMO's on the market today, but unfortunately, that isn't enough to keep me playing.

EDIT: Someone said the animations were motion captures, and I had to laugh. I didn't know that, but they don't even look motion captured... they just look like half-assed animations.

considereing i don't play the game anymore not sure how i'm considered a fanboy.. but for example not every percieves graphical artifacts the same.. shimmering is a big one as some people it can be game breaking if the game doesn't provide a decent form of anti-aliasing but to others don't even see it. Not every percieves things the same not sure how that's a hard concept.. personally I think ryan reynolds and scarlet johanson are the best looking actor/actress in hollywood i know people who think scarlet is ugly and plain looking. It's all personal preference and perception on how you view things.. find it silly when people make rash generalizations and pretend people are making up terms to support their claim instead of standing back and realizing not everyone perceives things the same as you do.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg
