OP  12/20/13 1:28:14 PM#1

I really was/am the biggest mystery fan there is. So when I heard of TSW originally, I was totally thrilled.

I had played TSW from launch ~2 months, then again half a year or so later as well, and the last 2 days again anew. But... no. The combat is still the same crappy mess. It wasn't reworked or improved at all. The skill selection is still a chaos, you can select 1000s of combinations of which 999 suck. Targetting is a mess. Some power are STILL totally overpowered while other powersets are lame.

Nothing of the quests has changed, I didn't see any new additions neither with my mid level old char nor with my new char.

I still had this chaotic feeling from the start, still mobs every 2 meters, still crappy invisivble rewards instead of stuff you can WEAR and SEE.

Still all 3 factions go to the same terretories, no replay value, no new zones or lands.

Sorry if the critique is a bit simplistic. I am just frustrated. I had hoped Funcom would work on the game. I mean, other companies did, but apparently Funcom just lets the game run as it is. A shame. I can accept games and companies who work with their games, but Funcom apprently just let it all be as it is. I mean, I am sure they added some stuff, but nothing I could find in 2 days aprox. 14 hours play time. I guess that was the last time I gave this a chance. Three times is enough, and if Funcom did nothing by now, they won't at all.

Too bad. I really had hoped this would be worked on after launch.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

Don't feel bad, I stopped playing because I just couldn't get past the horrible animations. Cant figure it out, this is the same company that made Age of Conan that had such beautiful animations and they somehow made this?

Scrap the action based pointless combat, this game is not suited for being an action game.

Focus on story, mystery and puzzle quest (ala MYST)

This is one of the few MMOs that should be heavily story driven.

As it is, TSW is very bland, not worth the box price.

No seriously. I love the setting, so it just saddens me that I find other parts so flawed. :/

And not "oh it isn't so perfect", but really, really aggravating me.

I agree, I really wanted to like this game but it bothered me from the very start.  The fact I could only make an ugly character -and yes that is shallow- put me off from the get go.  And then the first area just had zombies running at you constantly- they were easy to kill- but just bloody irritating.  And then if you stumbled across a quest it would quit you out of the one you were currently running which was just intensely aggravating.  That combined with the fact the combat was pretty tedious meant I did not get far in the game before quitting.

No worries, no game is perfect for everybody :) it seems simply TSW isn't your game.

 

Most of what you (and later LittleBoot) mentioned as a flaw, are designed exactly that way, that's how the game works.

"The skill selection is still a chaos, you can select 1000s of combinations of which 999 suck." way more than simply hundreds :) and a major chunk of those are more than viable (or at least fun). And it's maybe the best feature of the game.

"Targetting is a mess."  also WAI, a kinda hybrid system with a toggle, and even in tab-target mode it has some directional targeting.

"Some power are STILL totally overpowered while other powersets are lame." One ability alone usually not worth much, and while in the beginning there were indeed OP deck combos, mostly they're fixed by now.

"Nothing of the quests has changed, I didn't see any new additions neither with my mid level old char nor with my new char." Quests don't change only get extended in rare cases. But with every Issue there were new quests added into the game. These additions usually affecting every area, so your "mid-level" ( :) ) character could bump into many new missions even in Kingsmouth or SC.

"I still had this chaotic feeling from the start, still mobs every 2 meters"  strange, I don't quite remember this mob density (maybe the End of days event, with the mayan zombies?). Presently that's not the case, you can easily avoid mobs.

"still crappy invisivble rewards instead of stuff you can WEAR and SEE."  also WAI, what you see is cosmetic.

"Still all 3 factions go to the same terretories, no replay value, no new zones or lands."  khm, that's because of the Council... replay value is to enjoy the missions again :) (or the AP reward), and Tokyo is arriving with the next Issue.

@LittleBoot "And then if you stumbled across a quest it would quit you out of the one you were currently running which was just intensely aggravating."  also WAI, that's TSW's quest mechanic, it was even on the dev diaries...  and it's a great system for backing up the stories.

 

I'm just trying to say, TSW is not everyone's cup of tea. It was known right from the start, and it wasn't even targeted to the whole mmo playerbase. You see those parts as flaws, others seeing it differently. Simple as that :)

Considering how poorly the game is doing, I'd say you're wrong.

  • TSW had most interesting questing out of any current MMOs I've ever played.
  • The actual combat was clunky looking and the animation in general was sad
  • Skills are pretty awesome in theory (all the animations are a like and suck but...) and all serve a purpose if you understand how to create a build. You won't really understand the inner workings of builds unless you PVP.  Most people will  just stack dps, stack health and defense or stack healing because the content never challenged beyond those basic roles
  • Funcom dropped the ball, lost their head guy and have been struggling to put out anything meaningful that is on par with the launch content
  • With each patch the game runs crappier and crappier.
 
With all that said, it's plain as day that the game was never for the OP. I figured this out with "invisible rewards". You can look how you want and gear however you want. If you were looking for your outward appearance to represent what level you are... wrong wrong game for you.

Comment about "invisible rewards" is flat out untrue anyway. There are entirely visible rewards that you can "wear and see" for such things as:

  • Completing the main story line to date.
  • Collecting all the Lore that was in at launch.
  • Completing the three Hell dungeons.
  • Completing each Nightmare dungeon on the Master Planner challenge mode.
  • Exploring all the zones.
  • Completing various sets of missions.
  • Completing the main Ability wheel, and various subsets thereof.
  • Attaining various ranks within your faction.
  • Indirectly, for player kills in PvP (increasingly elaborate versions of faction PvP outfits that can be worn in the rest of the game world).
Every Issue, every event to date has had some form of clothing reward attached, even if just a T-shirt for completing all the missions. Hell, TSW's page on TVTropes has an entry for "And your reward is clothes."

The things you are complaining about are the same reasons the player base like it.

We like the ultimate freedom to pick from hundreds of abilities.  If you can't (or won't) understand the synergy/combo system of actives and passives, you won't like combat.  Use the starter decks if you don't want to mess around with each of the abilities.  I happen to think creating my own decks is a lot of fun, especially when I find a chain combo that works really well.  The game itself won't hold your hand with this (the pre-made decks are there, but they aren't that great). Better is to go read some of the deck building guides out there (use Google).  Read the threads in the forums.  Use the Search panel to find combos.  Yeah, the animations could be better, but the combat system doesn't need fixing. 

We like quality over quantity in the quests.  Lots of missions throughout the zones, and new questlines always being added in the DLC issues, some of which are some of he best questlines ever made (Tyler Freeborn).  Lore spread throughout the game, achievements.  Lairs, dungeons (3 difficulties), raid, and now scenarios -- there's plenty of content; are you running over the same areas?  That would be the same situation in any MMO.

Players I think like the feeling that the world is a tad more dangerous and difficult than many MMOs.  I think the Ak'ab areas are the ones where mob density is a real problem/challenge. 

Players like that they have complete control over their look, and that clothes are separate from gear.  Weapons and clothing rewards are plenty visible, and come as rewards for completing missions. 

Somewhat agreed on the amount of difference in the factions, and in general would like to see more faction-specific content.  The factions have different flavor text for the missions, different cut scenes, and there are differences in clothes and some faction-specific missions, but yeah, there could be more stuff added for faction-specific stuff.  One thing on the table was the Black Ops missions for factions, but this may be a ways off.

Sorry the game isn't built the way you would prefer and that it works a bit differently than other MMOs, but overall pretty darn happy with the direction Funcom has taken it.  Now to get Tokyo out the door, dangit!

I see.  That must mean World of Warcraft is the best MMO on the market.  After all, that game is doling great and everyone who plays it loves it.

I can agree about the clunky animation's, and a few other minor annoyance's to me but over all I am really enjoying the game. Imho TSW is the spiritual successor to GW1.

Oh, TSW combat animations are poor? That's a new perspective.

Otherwise, it seems to me that the OP has not played TSW at all. Almost everything written was not accurate.

...in your opinion.  There's a whole boatload of people playing this game right now that like the combat and have no issue with it.

It's called learning to play.

Face it: you never figured out the deck/synergy/combo system.

I completely disagree with OP no offense i respect your opinions but how much of the game did you play itself?

TSW is probably the only mmorpg i fully enjoyed after final fantaysy 11, And i am glad it wasn't yet another WoW cash clone just like 95% of mmorpg out for a while.  One of THE best story driven games i have ever played, heck instances are some of the best also and I am a person who hates instances this says a lot.

I used to think combat was weird until i gave it a try and got it down, almost any skill is useful and you are open to make any build you like pretty much anything can be made into a build/etc.  Do people expect TSW combat to be some street fighter or tera online style? the games own combat system is unique and after giving it a try i found it to be great, although i agree it needs some improvements but its far from how people who i think try for 2-5 minutes ( or only judge with 1-3 skills beginnign of game).

 

Shame you did not like OP, o well no one can expect everyone to like anyways.

Love the skill wheel, quests, open world pve difficulty and setting. The builder combat is a bit of a chore though. The builder component hurts the game more than anything else anyone has said in this thread. I also find the ui and icons annoying. Overall, definitely a game worth playing even with it's faults.
