My retort to anyone and everyone that complains about this game...

It was designed to be a continuation from the last Neverwinter with a slightly better multiplayer experience than previous titles. Developers went bankrupt and Perfect World bought it, bastardized it into a cash-shop wonder machine like all their other titles, and flushed it out the pipes to make money.

Don't get me wrong, game is interesting and actually fun to play for awhile....but it has no staying power and Perfect World doesn't need it to. They have other titles which they try and draw your attention to on their site when you're getting down on any of their other titles like a perpetual revolving door.

More true words have never been spoken... Damn you, Perfect (imperfect) World... Damn you.

I second...uh...or third this! Basically, I agree!

Neverwinter is a black hole in terms of trying to suck you completely dry of your money without providing a whole lot in return.

It appears that Cryptic/PWE's main goal is to build craptastic games that make a decent earning via upfront purchases and are then put on life-support while they trickle in more cash here-and-there over time.

IMHO, I can't take their games seriously anymore, especially months after they've launched.

You know when you should stop playing a game? When it stops being fun.... Why do you have to turn it into such a drama?

You enjoyed the game enough to play it for 6 months and now you are burnt out, just move on. There's nothing to stop you from trying it again in 6 months to see if you like it enough to play again.

 

Also, are you new to MMOs? Endgame grind to move to the next endgame grind... you pretty much described every themepark MMO ever. What other reward were you after? Which other themepark MMO offers this reward?

 ^this^

 Seriously if it stops being fun stop playing it, and if it stopped being fun for you 5 months ago and you still kept playing it for 5-6 months rightly blame yourself for being Stupid. Wonder how much drama could be avoided by people taking responsibility for their own actions rather then whining that the big bad companies made them play their game for 5-6 months when it wasn't fun.

  Neverwinter I played it and even had fun with it for a month or two and then stopped playing when it wasn't enjoyable for me anymore. God that was easy, and drama free.

I still love playing this game. I play it like D&D and do adventures.

If you want to play hardcore and burn out that's your business but I don't really have any sympathy. You can play like that in many games.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

It stopped being fun after 5 HOURS, and I'm still kicking myself for having wasted that much time on it.

Without a MMO I want to play my wife and I started playing this because we didnt want to pay money for a game we were not in love with the idea of. We are having fun. Dungeon runs are well done and the player made content brings me back to my PnP days. Player humor down to thought provoking content that so far is better then most MMOs content. I dont play games for loot, I play them for how fun the content is and I am having fun!!!! Totally unexpected!!!!

I played a great weapon fighter to level 60. Then played a guardian fighter to the mid  30's and a trickster rogue to the mid 30's.  By that point, I'd had more than enough grind, so I know what you mean.  Given that the publisher is PWI, the fact that its a grind fest is pretty much a given.  Its too bad, as it could have been a much better game.

"Shhh! My common sense is tingling..."

I bought the Hero of the north pack. Paid 199.00. Stopped playing after a month (that's pushing it, maybe three weeks).

Consider it to easily be, my worst gaming purchase ever, (collectors edition TORlet runs second, virtual boy third). Even with that I quickly got over it, bad purchases happen. Yes it sucks, but life goes on and you try not to do it again.

There is no reason to complain really, you don't like the game anymore, games are supposed to be fun, move on if you don't like it.

If I can get over it, after spending 199.00 dollars, and leave after a month, you can too.

Regardless of investment, if a game I am excited for is no longer fun, I just leave. I have better things to do, and better games to play.

With all the MMOs, coming out, and that are out? You are complaining about Neverwinter being a shitfest?

It sounds like you are one of the gaming hobos, that doesn't  want to pay for the MMO they play.

I mean what other explanation could there be? Why else would one stay for 6 months?

Also, you will say how you paid money, even if you didn't, so there is no way to tell.

But if you really did pay nothing? You have nothing to complain about.   

Not to mention, when I tried to go back a few times, simply to check it out again, because I paid way too much and was bored of other games. The game wasn't playable, when I switched to AMD and sold my titans before the 290x was launched. Textures wouldn't load or would take 10 seconds or longer if they even do load, I get maybe 3 frame rates a second. I get games, favor one card or the other most of the time, but this is the worst I have seen. Haven't had problems with any other MMO. It's just shit on all fronts (this is the part where a forum posters claims they have a AMD card, the same or less powerful, and gets AMAZING performance lol)

If you play 100% for the carrot games no longer are games. You are now just endlessly playing for x,y,z loot. Now your in the grind zone. I got lost in that for a while in WoW and started to see I was no longer playing for fun like I started. I was playing for better gear to kill harder mobs to get better gear to... Now I just look at the content and ask myself "Am I having fun, is this good content?" Get off the treadmill my friend and start playing games =-) Gear now just happens while I am having fun!!!!

I agree with the above completely.  You should only play a game as long as it is fun.  I rarely play a game for more than 3 months at a stretch before I take a break from gaming generally or a break from that particular game.

It always strikes me when I see people say I played x number of months or have x number of toons at max level and can say this game sucks.

Ok I am just regurgitating what evilastro said now so I will wrap it up.  Feel exactly the same way though. 

I enjoyed NW and maxed a couple of toons, but its a fairly short ride and very easy to level.  Will check back again at some point probably because I enjoyed the game.

What I find unusual about some of the responses here is that people are assuming that someone playing can actually stop playing when the game ceases to be fun.  Many MMORPGs rely on mental traps in order to have decent retention rates, though thankfully a good majority of people don't get stuck up in them as they primarily manifest at the "end game" where grinding is at it's worst.

Worries that benefit us in real life, like the fear of falling behind schedule, the urge to meet important deadlines and group meet ups, and to stay relevant to the community we are a part of are all turned against us in the end game setting.  It can get to the point that people are mushing themselves along like sled dogs attempting to consume digital content with RNG rates and difficulty curves designed to make the small bit of content as time consuming as possible.

 

Edit: also, anyone worried about guild obligations in game: Unless you personally know the people in the guild in real life or are part of a competition group, all that is going to happen when you leave is everybody else shrugging their shoulders unless you've ran off with the holy grail of drops from the game.  Don't get sandwiched into guild politics in an environment where anonymity is the norm.

We have come to blame the company for trying to make money and designing their content to keep you playing. Name me a MMO that does not do that? Thats like blaming McDonalds for making yummy cheap food so they are to blam for being fat. Put down the fast food and go eat a salad. You can only be responsible for you. It comes a time you need to say.. ok I have played to much I need to stop for today of the week or forever. As your post said above, people are doing it to themselves. If you played for 6 months at some point you were having fun or I have no clue why you played. Then it turned into a grind and a job and they kept playing. PWI IMO is not to blame.

You may want to give it more time. The player made content is down right fun. Some of the best fun I have had MMOing. I still log into GW2 from time to time because its free to do so and I need a PvP fix. I can see the foundry system in NW doing the same for me when I want a fun adventure.

Is it OK that Im laughing at all the people that pre order collectors editions before they have even tried the game?  Spending sometimes twice or more the amount of a digital copy?  I have NEVER bought a collectors edition for the simple fact that games tend to suck after 3 months, or the developer shows their true colors.  That might change soon. however with ESO or wildstar..

 

But right now Im laughing at all the people that dropped 199.99 on hero of the north for a game that wasn't even released yet. 

 

BTW, I like Neverwinter's combat, zones, graphics, ambience, story, etc..  Dungeons are difficult, and thats the end game for me.  I take breaks from the game from time to time, debating if I want to get back into it right now.  But the difficult dungeons are the end game for me.

"Mushing themselves along like sled dogs"  LMAO.  That was pure awesomeness right there.

On a more serious note, I understand the whole point of well I really don't want to just leave it right now.  I think it takes outside diversions to distract us.  I think we all were there initially when MMOs were around, now we know when we are done.  I think I'm just up and quit nearly every MMO I've played since SWG.

I love Neverwinter. This weeks patch killed pvp for me though. I'm a cleric, and  there is NO reason for a cleric to pvp now. I'll PvE but as far as pvp is concerned I'll get that fix somewhere else. This game is now dead to me for pvp.
