OP  3/27/14 4:27:10 PM#1

Question: Is WildStar worth $60 plus a subscription?

 

History: I played WoW from Open Beta through BC, then came back for WotLK and quit before Cata.  I like Vanilla WoW through BC very much but am not a fan with where the game has gone since then.  Vanilla WoW is my "gold standard" for MMOs.

I played RIFT from maybe 1.4 through much of Storm Legion.  I got burned out but really enjoyed the game and the mechanics.

Some other games I tried:

  • TERA - Fun but no end game to speak of
  • Neverwinter - Fun but really grindy end game
  • ST:TOR - Boring
  • LotRO - Boring
  • Secret World - Didn't like the setting, didn't hold my interest
  • FF XIV - Not bad, but I've never been a big FF fan and it didn't hold my interest

I like themeparks and despise PvP.

I have no interest in ArchAge nor TESO.  

 

I have been very interested in WS but I am not willing to pay $60 for a game I may only play for a week.  I never got into any of the betas, so I have no experience with WS at all.  I have read many posts from people saying, "This game is great!" and just as many posts saying, "This game is horrible!"  

So tell me: Do you think this game is worth $60?

To me ( and only ME) ..no. Too much like WoW that I completely have written it off.

But that being said...I hope that it receives massive success. I would very much like to see a subscription mmo make it out there. And would not like to see it go f2p any time soon. Good trails to all you Wildstar fans in the months to come.

There's going to be more beta weekend events for WS.

Personally i didnt like it but that does not mean that its a "horrible" game. Try to get a beta access and see for yourself, there is still time for it.

Well you are going to get the same thing here most likely. For ME and thats all I can speak for I had more fun playing Wildstar. This is all anyone can really say yet they make it come off as fact for all who play. 

Both are not worth $60. I have no clue how some have no problem paying for something that is so unfinished yet they will make sure and tell you..you are NOT PLAYING A BETA...yet people will defend it with all its bugs and say "what did you expect all mmos that launch are like this". Sheep.. they they just follow. They toss out $60 and expect nothing in return.

Yet for ME $60 for a digital download of 18.45 gb thats I can copy and give away yet cost us $60. So really your paying $60 to just play one month only. Cost them nothing to have a copy of a copy of a copy ready. Not like digital music.

Give people a BOX and you give the illusion your getting something for your money. You are but what  $10 to really make all that.

See if you expect something for your money you stand alone. Most are like sheep they will follow what everyone else does. They say they expect yet dont. Like a doc coming out where they put two little girls in mall (closely watched) as if they were lost to see who would help. At the start they asked people if you saw some little child looks lost what would you do? ALL everyone said they would DUH help.

Yet 616 people walked by this little girl alone and did nothing. Like that car crash you saw..yeah you were the one that just drove by maybe even took a pic.

So me..I will buy both games and test to see. I don't care someone says its kiddish or AWESOME I will find out my self. I like you have to pay $60 to see.

I m playing almost 10 years WoW & EvE.

I was not hyped about this game, mostly of its combat, as i m a lover of tab target.

After i played the last weekend beta i have to say i changed my mind 100%. The game was a pleasant surprise.

Combat and animations are excellent.

Well made world,  no loading screens, no phasing etc.

Graphics are very well designed.

Housing ROCKS! One of the best in mmo's.

Movement is superb.

Questing is a bit generic but more fun than in WoW.

Crafting is very interesting and much deeper than in WoW.

It has almost no bugs despite it has more than 2 months to release.

Its fun. Humor is everywhere.

It has of the highest quality PvE dungeons/raids/public quests/adventures/shiphands etc.

WoW like PvP with arenas/bg's + warplots (40 man)

Great talent & stats system. Not revolutionary but way deeper than in WoW.

No flying mounts.

Excellent UI!

Subscription can be also acquired through in game currency (like EvE's PLEX)

Box price of 40 Euros (i m from EU) is way less than other mmo's price and a hell of a good deal imo.

 

All in all is a very quality game, but I don't know if you are going to like it or not. Its up to you and your tastes.

I can say that most of my rl friends and my WoW guild m8's are going to move to Wildstar. Time will show if we are going to stay or not, but for the first time after vanila WoW, we have a good feeling for a mmo :)

To people who says its to much like wow, ignore them because they did not play the game or they didnt get to far into it. Is it worth 60 bucks? Not unless you are willing to play just an ok game to level 25+. Your first 15 levels is as far as most people get that hate the game and if thats all you see I would not like the game as well.

Once you get mid lvl and start PvPing and doing dungeon runs you will get it. This game is designed to play with people but not so much when you lvl. If you like housing, pvp, raiding and doing dungeons, this would be well worth 60 bucks. I have been in beta for a while and Im dropping money on the deluxe for my wife and I because if EQN sucks we will be back here to stay a while. Dont buy into the negitive hype. There is a solid game here. Even the other systems like crafting have some real depth. I think WS will be a dark horse of 2014.

I think it's a great game, loaded with content for a new release, great graphics (subjective) and it's fun!  Definitely worth it to me.

I envy you, you like themeparks and dont like pvp that means almost every new MMO that has come out in the last 8 years is for you.

I don't understand, you read many posts and apparently still can't decide? Have you actually read about the games content and features? Have you watched any videos of people playing the game?

If you still can't decide after all these things, I don't think MMO's in general are a good fit for you.

I cant help you decide if it is worth it to you, its not to me.

When I said i had "time", i meant virtual time, i got no RL "time" for you.

Not sure I agree with you, I had fun in game as soon I got out of tutorial . Some people will never be able to get over their dislike for a certain type of graphics but that it is not wildstar fault.

Here in U.K. the price is 34.99 pounds vs 49.99 Teso (both normal edition) and for me Wildstar is worth the money (based on 14 levels in beta,not sure if I preorder or wait for launch). More than 40 pounds and I will have probably waited for a sale,not because the game isn't fun but I don't want to support an increase in game price without an increase in quality and quantity of content.

As others have said, the only way for you to decide is to play it yourself. I won't be spending $60 on it as it's the the type of game I want to play anymore.

I recommend Asiasoft's PSO2 , but it's about to start closed beta and it is in English. Mind you I wouldn't make it the only MMO you play as it will become repetative. As for WS , well I don't really know , try a beta ?

Cheers,

BadOrb.

PSO 4 years , EQOA 4 months , PSU 7 years , SWTOR launch ongoing , PSO2 SEA launch ongoing , Destiny 360 launch ongoing.

I had fun playing this game, and i am actually missing it. To the people who are saying it needs to be perfect in BETA. Well they are just a special kind of stupid.

Carbine is actively bug fixing. in the course of the weekend they fixed the 3 most noticeable bugs that were complained about. And this was before the beta was even over. The Delay that we experianced was Noted after the beta saying " due to a programing error we gave the Mobs a higher priority then the players, This has been fixed"

Carbine cares about this game, This is not in any way shape or form a cash grab. The game is good it allows much playstyle choice and YES you can use a Tab Target system you just have to look in the options and find it.

 

Is this game worth 60 dollars, My preorder says yes.

Because i can.

  • ST:TOR - Boring

Well, it's hard to compare games, but honestly, if you found TOR boring, I don't think you'll like Wildstar.  WS is basically TOR, only with even worse graphics, even worse story, no SW IP and with dodging. 

 

If you liked TOR except for the fact htat it was Star Wars and you hated having to read/listen to more than 1 line of quests text/audio, then you may quite enjoy wildstar.

Yep have to play it to see if you like it. Personally I have been in beta almost from the start of beta and have to say I won't be buying it. Uninstalled and will not play it again.

If anything that was covered was a lie, I resent that. That feels as big as any crime as any committed.

Like so many others have said, try to grab a beta key and try it out for yourself.

Personally, I was planning on buying and playing the game but the beta convinced me otherwise.  It just isn't the game for me starting with the graphics.  I just couldn't get into the world as much as I wanted to.  Way too busy and cluttered for my middle aged eyes.  I also wasn't a fan of the combat.

I do think it is going to be a good game though and will appeal to a broad audience.  I really liked the crafting and the housing was fantastic.  In fact the housing is what initially drew me to the game and of course the video trailers.   I so much wanted to love WildStar but unfortunately it didn't click for me.  Again though, try it out.   From general chat, seemed like many folks were really enjoying the game and planning on purchasing it.  I wish Carbine the best of luck with WildStar.

I think it's completely worth it. But I didn't know that until I had already pre purchased it. Currently as it stands, it is the most fun I've had in a game since vanilla WoW, and I can't wait to keep playing each beta weekend until release.
