My biggest fear that the core game is shallow and lacks staying power.

So no, I still do not agree that FFA PvP ruins immersion. On the other hand, I do agree with you that a system which leads to constant FFA PvP may be ruining immersion as it would make the virtual world look like fantasy Quake III Arena. Those 2 statements are not the same though.

No, they're not the same, i agree.  However, the reason i speak of them as the same is because there hasn't been a single MMORPG that has succussfully encouraged a "realistic" set of behaviours within its populace.

 

The only thing to come even remotely close is the "high-sec" area of EVE in which anyone can attack anyone, but will get destroyed seconds later by the police. This has resulted in people thinking very long and hard about whether they REALLY want to kill someone.    That's as close as we've come.

 

I also think that it's rather pointless to try to set up such an environment.  People who want FFA PvP for the sake of immersion - so that they can "settle arguments" and "feel more immersed" are very few and far between.   The majority of people that want FFA PvP want it so that they go kill people for fun - the very concept of which is what breaks immersion.  When's the last time on "our earth" that your friends called youp and said "hey, this weekend, let's go murder some people just because we can"?  What breaks immersion is that the world ends up filled with psycho characters that would kill anyone, anywhere, for no reason at all, just because they can.  This is not realistic in most virtual worlds.  

 

So no, it's not FFA PvP that ruins immersion.  But FFA PvP - in every game where it has been implemented - has led to player behaviour that ruins immersion, so it inevitably leads to immersion being ruined. 

You are absolutely correct.   There is no effective deterrent to bad behavior in a game, and uncontrolled PvP only fosters those undesirable behaviors.   Immersion broken.

Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

My worry is it will be 'action' combat 1 hotbar for people that can't handle more than 1 and use the excuse that having to pick 10 skills out of all the ones you know is in some way more tactical,like..

'Fangrim! you are the wizard of this group!!! why didn't you blast those orcs with your fireball?' 'ummm seems I forgot how to use it and I picked single target zap instead' so lame,there are plenty of 1 hotbar games for kids to play for these people.

Also a worry is it will be made to solo from 1- max level to suit people who play online games 100% solo........ I mean WTF?

Lets at least at launch make it so grouping is needed maybe not to progress but at least progress at a reasonable rate.Say it takes 30 times longer to get to max level solo than grouped would be good.After a few expansions and stuff maybe the older content can be made a little easier for new players so they don't need to rely on group play to catch up.

I generally hate fast leveling.

I have  no worries with the F2P because I play EQ2 and there is nothing at all in their shop that bugs me in any way and if it is a game worth playing i won't be F2P anyway as i will take their subscription option which ofc will be there.

The way EQ2 has gone is what makes me have these worries because solo play fast leveling is the way that once good fun group content game has sadly gone.

I have two worries..  It will look like a Saturday morning cartoon and the cash shop will destroy the game..

Definitely the Cash Shop for me as well. If its anything like EQ1 and 2 where you have to pay to unlock classes/races and upper levels or content at all then I have no interest in the game whatsoever. I have no problem dishing out the cash for F2P games but only for games that I want to. No matter how fun a game is if they try to force or pressure me into using the cash shop like EQ1 and 2 and SWToR and the like do then I am not even gonna bother to play it at all regardless of how much I may enjoy the game itself.

Cash Shop is a problem, but since SoE confirmed it already I am trying to get over it.

Apart for that my biggest worry is that EQNEXT will be too casual/solo friendly.

I am fed up with casual games, being themeparks or sandboxes.

I'm curious how many of you people have actually played an SOE game and used the cash shop. I've played several SOE games (Planetside 2, EQ, EQ2, DCUO) and rarely felt the cash shop was in the way. All I've ever seen in SOE's cash shop is cosmetic items and xp boosts and stuff like that. Planetside 2 allows you to unlock weapons using SC but most of those weapons can be unlocked in-game via earning certs for kills, base caps, etc. There are a few weapons that can ONLY be bought using SC but they're not game-breaking by any means.

My biggest concern is the current model for EQ and EQ2 being used as the basis for the EQN, i.e.- having to unlock higher tier spells and fabled/legendary weapons using the cash shop or be forced to pay a subscription. If I have access to all the same spells and stuff as everyone else, then no harm, no foul.

A smaller concern is that they don't have at least most of the races as they do in EQ2. Iksar or bust.

i find EQ2's SC shop completely harmless. I would absolutely HATE having to buy chest keys from SC shop like in Neverwinter and games that have that setup.  EQ2 just has appearance items and you can get plenty of good appearance items in-game.  Plus you can easily buy SC with in-game earned plat.

 

I have a couple of main worries:

1.  It will be almost entirely a solo game - the latest EQ2 expacs have all been going in this direction, they don't even make group shared dungeons or group quests anymore, all solo except for the group & raid instances.  The group content is still good, but i don't want ALL quests i nthe game to be solo.

 

2.  it will have Global Cooldown combat.  This is probably as close to a game-breaker as it gets for me.  I can get behind all kinds of different combat systems, but GCD just kills any fluidity of combat for me and makes combat not fun.

 

3.  It won't have Ratonga.  It may be shallow, but i would really miss my favourite EQ race if it ends up not included :(

No Ratonga = no play for me. That is the only race I played in EQ2, and I love being a Necro-Rat.  Other worries are: Pay to win cash shop. No PvP at all.  No reason to group, no trinity. These would all be game killers for me. I like solo but I also like quests where you have to have a team to complete it.  Mostly if this game is only pve I won't play. That is the absolute. I know a lot of pve'rs don't like the mention of pvp, but to truly be successful there has to be some, and no i don't mean pve/pvp servers. It should be 1 server. EVE can do it so can EQnext.  Remember this is my opinion, yours may vary.  I'm just talking about what would kill the game for me. Notice I didn't say that it has to be full loot open world pvp, but that some form should be present.

Currently bored with MMO's.

Stop please...........

I had to subscribe to play the game as intended, could not use Master Spells, Legendary/Epic equipment, tight Gold restriction, and AH restrictions, you can't really play the game as intended with those restrictions.

I unsubscribed after 2 months after I discovered that in order to play the end game I had to buy the last expansion (an an optional one to use the mercenaries)

F2P my arse...............

SoE revenue model is the worst out there.

 

But I spent money on Rift cash shop, because I didn't feel like I was forced to use it................

They didn't have any of that silly EQ2 restriction and I spent money on cosmetic items.

There you go.

This will Never happen.
SOE isn't stupid enough to force PvP on anyone.
There will be both PvP and PvE servers as well as some type of PvP Flag system and probably even dueling of some kind.

Just because I'm a gamer doesn't mean I drive a Honda.

Well, i look at it this way - if me riding an SC-purchased Sabretoothed Squirrel Mount with no stats is going to be "significant to gameplay", then I'm not going to play the type of game anyway.  Therefore it's a non-issue for me :)

I meant the xp boosts (marked red).

The Sabretoothed Squirrel Mount would be no problem for me either :). Cosmetics, mounts, etc dont have impact on gameplay, but the xp boosts are different story.

Wow, there's so many things that could go wrong. But, I'll just list a couple.

1. They are trying to please everyone.  I worry that means the game will have lots of different pools, but they will be shallow end only.

2. Crafting/housing/shops, etc.  This is pretty much an issue with all MMOs outside of UO/SWG.  MMOs always neglect the tradeskill/merchant side of things.  I think SoE can do housing well enough, but the instanced housing is a sloppy, underwhelming, quick-fix system that needs to be replaced.

1. Their super special new sauce will be one I don't care for. 

2. f2p model, I do not care to pay a sub, but I am not very tolerant of a cash shop that I view as being p2w.  I dislike xp potions, gold/gear/loot boosts...I prefer a cash shop to be cosmetic only, but when you make a mmo f2p, I think that has conflicts.  I will have to wait and see.

 

3. Over instanced (hope housing is not instanced).

My biggest "worry" about EQN is that they will go the typical western MMO route of trinity, quest hub, gear grinds, and raids as their main form of progression.  However, since it's f2p I can just test it out and if I don't like it I can just admit it isn't for me and NOT troll on a game forum on a game I don't even play or like.

That the PvP will be instanced. Actually, instancing in general. I hate it.
