Thats a lot of different content types.... but that differentation seems to come at a price, as there are only 4 dungeons, a 20 and a 40 man raid, 2 battlegrounds and a single warplot at release...
 
thats not a lot
 
The developers however countered this argument as they plan monthly content updates, and allready planned and partly developed 16 months ahead.

 

http://www.vg247.com/2014/04/29/wildstars-first-16-months-of-post-release-content-are-already-in-pre-production/

 

In my humble opinion these 2 facts combined give me that gruesome feeling that they kept a lot of ready or near to ready content away from the game to release it in these combat patches.. (but then, it even might be a smart thing to do)

 

Just wondering if they can keep up delivering all the diverse content over longer periodes of time...

Already thinking that you will be doing end game stuff within minutes of release... precisely why no MMO can possibly keep up with the demand... everyone has already decided to be "done" on day one.

That might be the reason why there is not that much groupconent at release, and why it is hard content..... with hard content and monthly group and raid content updates, they might keep the hordes busy and engaged for quite some time..

 

There might be enough content to keep people busy ... which keeps me wondering about progression, will it only be gear and raid progression, or will there also be some kind of AA system introduced after release, character progression is most often something the developers forget about, since it was not part of their example game (WoW)  ...  i have learned that in my case, that a good AA system just rocks big time

The real point is not how many dungeons or raids or warplots etc are available on launch, but if they keep their promise about monthly content addition. They already announced the first content update for end of June containing among others a new zone with world bosses, zone event etc. For the 2nd & 3rd patches there will be also a BG and an arena, plus other things.

So imo time will tell if they will succeed to provide such content every month :)

All developers hold things back... they don't magically have a dungeon all ready to queue up a month after release... it's been in work well before release.  This is true of even WoW... which has the slowest content releases of any game out there.

 

People will be max level inside of 2 weeks no matter how hard the mechanics are because they shortcut any and every way they can.  The only way to slow the locusts down is to return to the old grinding ways in which a level literally took you a month to complete.  Stop deluding yourself into thinking the game has a lot of content... it's only a lot of content if you choose to make it so by playing it over and over again.  If you can't repeat the content, it wasn't worth doing twice.  These games are all about replay... repeating the same content again and again.  That's all WoW is, the same stuff over and over again.  WS is not going to be any different in that respect.

And how many times have companies told this same story about content?  *cough* Neverwinter *cough*

Or how group content was incredibely shallow and was just a gearing tool for the next raid tier and it was still raid or GTFO.

I'm on the fence on WS, if it is raid or GTFO then WS can go fuck itself.  Tired of MMOs where your weekly game time is basically summed up as show up on X days at X time for raids and rinse n repeat.

I have been following/testing this game for a few years now. I last checked the game a few weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised at how much content they have added. I see a good three months of PvE content (for us normal folks) with this game vs one month in TES (for comparison). I do agree that they are going to be a bit short at the endgame for the people that just burn through the levels. They are pushing for the GvG element of the Warplots to keep people busy/interested until they have more raids available.

How can I phrase this, so it sounds right... hrm.

Raiding in Wildstar will get you the best gear (for pve). Playing Wildstar and filling your elder gem quota for the week will get you the best character.

Any activity at level 50 that gives you experience will be converted to elder gem "experience" which can be used to make permanent improvements to your character. AMP points, Ability points, rare skins, bags, things that won't magically 'poof' when the next content patch or expansion comes around.

So technically if one week you want to PVP like a drunk monkey on cocaine to get all your EGs, then the next you want to adventure the shit out of a place and some dungeons. You can. For all it matters you could go out and murder the entire country side grinding mobs until there is nothing living for miles.

Now I don't know how fast it'll take to cap out on points for the week, or if they are even keeping the cap. Or if the cap will be on a sliding scale. (A maximum threshold that increases week to week so that younger characters aren't at a disadvantage to older ones) But you will always have things to do, and a way to actually permanently improve your character outside of gear.

Best Gear will be inferior to someone else with the Best Gear and having unlocked all Ability and AMP points via Elder Gems.  Is what I hope he meant.

I highly doubt it, given that it is guaranteed to take 2 weeks for people to get into the 20 man raid.

But there will always be someone to troll with that claim, regardless of its merit.

If it takes 2 weeks to reach level 50... the preponderance of the game in and of itself, why do you expect that latter portion to take more time?  Because you repeat it more just to get different loot?

 

It should take months to hit level 50... but those days are long gone... they might as well make everyone a level 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000because reaching max level is meaningless... about as meaningless as killing the same bosses week in and week out.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

5/20/14 5:59:43 PM#15

Keep in mind that often content can be done well before its released, however it still needs to be polished up and tested. Dungeons are designed to be quiet difficult so they need a lot more balancing and tweaking to get working.  That being said, in a way adventures are a more casual dungeon, having 6 adventures (which each have varying paths you can take with them) means that in terms of 'group instances' you really have 10 total "dungeons" if you consider it to be like they would be in other games. Looking at it that way, there are a lot of dungeons out there. If you count ship hands too (which are mini dungeons in themselves) that is even more things to do.

I think as it stands Wildstar has a LOT of content out there on release, a lot more variety then most games out there. Given they do update monthly and throw in new dungeons every month or two (ideally given they do vet mode ones, having them take part at different levels for variety during leveling) I can easily see this being remedied and giving more options. 

Honestly, I'm not one that feels there needs to nessisary be a monthly big update (2 months time works for me just fine really. not counting patches and fixes) but I think if they pace themselves right they can keep up the cycle. Its very likely they have split teams working on different elements, meaning a team might be working on shiphands and adventures to throw out, while others will be doing Dungeons and Raids, another handling pvp updates. Its not as crazy sounding to keep up with as it might sound. I'm sure there will be hurdles but given there are multiple teams when 1 part might faulter, there will be other parts that could still put their finished content into play.

By that logic, nothing you do in a game would have meaning.  Getting to 50 doesn't end your character's progression.  There's more story to be had at max level, if that's what you're looking for. 

 

Edit: Btw, bosses in the raids can change week to week based on a set of potential bosses.  So there will be new things to learn for quite a while.

You shouldn't be able to reach max level inside 2 weeks NO MATTER HOW MUCH there is to do when you get there... it makes having spent the time creating the world and even quests for that matter, the preponderance of the development time, utterly pointless.  The fact that people will be max level in a blink of an eye bespeaks to the level of difficulty this game really offers.  If Archeage were to go live 1 week after the free 30 days are used up, everyone would literally switch games because it's new stuff to do, not rinse/repeat.

I highly doubt it, given that it is guaranteed to take 2 weeks for people to get into the 20 man raid.

But there will always be someone to troll with that claim, regardless of its merit.

If it takes 2 weeks to reach level 50... the preponderance of the game in and of itself, why do you expect that latter portion to take more time?  Because you repeat it more just to get different loot?

 It should take months to hit level 50... but those days are long gone... they might as well make everyone a level 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

It taking a long time level was actually never fun for me. Also I'm assuming his comment is not about how long it takes to level, there is an atunement that isn't the easiest. It will mean you will have to get your raid to a point where it can regularly medal the vets. Also you can/will run the adventures on vet mod as well.

On the surface it may look like not much content, but little things will make this tier  take a couple months for the most hardcore guilds, in theory it could be 2mnths before any guild steps into the 40man. Time will tell, but even then that will be for the serious, doing it like a job guilds, for the semi-hardcore that means even longer progression, which sounds like a ton of fun to me, and many of my friends who are playing this game.

Getting to max level is fine and good, but you still cant raid.
The keying system takes a minimum of 2 weeks. Takes 150 gems(forgot currency name) to but the initial item to start the keying process. You can only get 140 per week.
After that you can start the process which in itself isnt easy.

Not to mention Gearing from the level 50 dungeons just to be able to survive the raids.

There are time restrictions put in place to slow players down.

Then you have the 7day lock out periods like other MMOs.

You have to clear all 20man content to progress to 40 man, and again with the gearing for 40 man.


There is a lot of things to keep you busy.

Multiple Choice question:

Game A takes 5 months to get to max level, and Game B takes 2 weeks to get to max level.  Which game is more difficult?

a.) Game A is more difficult

b.) Game B is more difficult

c.) They are equally difficult

d.) Not enough information

 

If you answered anything other than D, I know that I will not be able to continue having this conversation, because you are drawing a conclusion for which there is no evidence.
