Crap...full add-on support.  More deadly boss mods, and hand holding crap.  Interest just dropped to 0.


i have to agree here. mods make people dependent on them and eventually unable to play without them. when wow has a patch and the mods become unusable till they r updated shows this. instead of having a mod tell u when to move or when its coming, how about u just pay attention and learn how to really play. instead of forming a group that can rush through a dungeon because everyones dps is 40k min, how about u learn to play as a group and finish without the guarantee. i have more fun playing when i have to actually play.

 

and before people bitch about not having enough time to play a dungeon legit or i dont pay $15 a month for epic fail then maybe u should consider playing just console or single player games only.

i used to b one of those wow players that used mods for everything. i used to require players to have xx dps and xx gear score or achievements before even considering u as worthy of playin with me. but then i played other mmo's that had no mods. thats when i realized i had more fun without them. more of a challenge. people were friendlier too. now i would rather play a game without mods. without restrictions.

so im disappointed to see wildstar following the carebear route. i still will try this game as im excited about it. unfortunately they r trying so hard to duplicate wow's success that they r also duplicating many of its failures.

Well Said!

I would agree except for one single thing. This is an action combat mmo. Sure they can change around the UI n such, but it wont really matter in the long run. Besides, why should we be forced to use the UI they provide? This is a game meant to be fun, not be forced to use something you simply dislike.

 

In other words, stop trying to find tiny wrong things about it and worry about the bigger picture. Is the mmo worthwhile or not?

If you don't like add-ons and want to deal with base UI, fine by me.  The rest of us want the ability to tweak our displays and make them more efficient, elegant, minimalist etc.  There is so much goodness with the ability to mod the interface. I can’t see how people stay with base UI if better is out there.  Not having mods would actually hurt the game in the long run.

Simply put. If you like addons you can get your favorite if you don't then don't download any!

Well, as far as I know Wildstar is cluttered with telegraphs all over the place even without any additional addon. So how much additional hand holding do you think will be there due to addons? Maybe this game wasn't for you from the start?

And regarding all concerns to the abuse of damage meters: as long as they are not integrated in the game from the start, I'm fine with them. If you don't wanna use them, simply let it be ;)

If you encounter assholes who have nothing else to do than to post their random acts of uberness without even being asked for: just literally ignore them for the future. And if the ignore list is limited and you run out of space, maybe there is a handy addon you can use to expand it (actually there is or at least was a WoW addon doing exactly this) :)

At the end of the day it's what you make out of it. Addons are powerful tools which can tailor the game to your needs. If you abuse them though, don't blame the addons. The real problem is most of the time right in front of your computer monitor ....

hand holding should die a horrible death, but I welcome full mod support with open arms on every mmo.

If you're going to avoid a game just because it can run addons, I wouldn't want you as part of the game's community.  So don't let the door hit you on the way out!

I think some people just want to find a reason to hate on Wildstar.

UI enhancement add-ons are fine. I like making my interface look nice and how I want it to. Hand holding add-ons such as deadly boss mods are not fine.

Why would you need to watch a Youtube video for "move out of red stuff on the ground, and stun him this many times when he gets this shield"? Wildstar combat is self-explanatory, no DBM mod needed. It's all about reaction time and not about a 50 page long strat, kind of like Tera or Vindictus.

I am glad there are add-ons simply because I love to be able to customize how my UI looks (not just placement of things)..

Add-ons are not required, so if you don't like them, don't download them you get the whole standard UI and everything!

I can understand the arguments against Gear Score and all that, but in the end at least for me I take it simply because I get all of the other awesome add-ons

I am also very excited it's LUA, which means we have potential for some very awesome add-on creators to bring us stuff in Wildstar ( provided of course they play xD )

The thing is, the reason we have DBM is because the interface provided wasn't good at relaying important information about what has going on, and DBM has led to improvements in Blizzard's interface and how they relay information in encounters.  What addon's often do is highlight areas where the provided interface is inadequate or lacking and allow the developer to see what the community has done and improve their interface by implementing changes they agree with and blocking the kind of addons they think cross the line.

 

There used to be an addon that actually allowed the screen to be painted where things were going to happen, and the leader could draw on the screen.  They thought that it was too much so they changed their APIs so they couldn't do that anymore.  The developers always have that control to prevent anything they don't want people doing with addons.  The developers still hold the key whether they develop the addons or other people do.  What community addons do is allow people to make things that are interesting to a smaller niche/group that the developers simply wouldn't have the time to do.
