Whoever it hurts, Wildstar is the most successful mmo in the last 5 years, and it's only going to get better. If you're a hater, you'll have to deal with it.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

That's not true at all.  the first month saw user scores of 2.8 and review scores in the high 70's.  That's a far cry from what Wildstar is getting now, which is very high.  I agree though, we need to wait and see what the real scores are in a few months.  But please, ESO got obliterated on metacritic when it first hit.

Wildstar has not been out for a month. ESO didn't get a single low score from registered metacritic press reviews in the first 2 weeks.

The user score is always important as well.  They might not have gotten a low score in the first 2 weeks but it wasn't high either.  I just don't want it misrepresented.  I was high on the game at the time, and was not happy with the scores at all.  I didn't understand why they were justified until later on.  Regardless, Wildstar is doing very well right now.  We'll see if the difficulty causes low scores here in the next few weeks.

Wildstar has not been out for a month. ESO didn't get a single low score from registered metacritic press reviews in the first 2 weeks.

ESO was released on April 4th right.

Press review were at 60 some  not negative but not positive either

Gamereactor Sweden  on April 14th gave it a 60

 

PCGamesN  on April 18th a 50

 

Gamer.nl on April 14th gave it a 60

 

 
 
Scroll to the bottom and check the dates of those reviews.
  
 
 No really bad reviews but even as early as those dates these reviews by the critics were not positive. Compare to Wildstar has collected good reviews well not that many because it is a low profile game and not in the class of ESO. I mean ESO was a big budget and publicized game and Wildstar is not in that league. For a smaller game it has done well.

I said "registered metacritic press reviews" Every game in history has gotten 1s from end user reviews on first day.

To all people having fun in Wildstar and are trying to demonstrate other public positive opinions about the game you enjoy, stop.

All those positive opinions on the game (the vast majority of opinions on the game) are wrong.

You are not having fun.

You have to wait 2-3 months to see if you actually had fun playing the game.

Do not trust your own fun-o-meter.

I repeat...You are not having fun.

Yes I noticed after I posted (sorry about that read too fast) I edited and put in the 60 and 50 that critics gave and see the date. I also noticed the lowest ESO got was a 40 and only one critic gave that. So 50 is next lowest which was given on April 18th within the two weeks date but what is most telling is what the 4 critics gave Wildstar compared to what they gave ESO.

 

Cheat Code Central has perhaps only one rating  they gave both games 90

 

PC Gamer 89 for Wildstar and 68 for ESO

 

JeuxActu  85 for Wildstar versus 70 for ESO

 

Gameblog.fr gave Wildstar 80 and ESO 70

 

 

 More than anything the thing that worked against ESO was its infamy. It was from a huge IP and it suffered for it. Wildstar is unknown , small and quiet and has no big fan base to piss off. I think even the critics came out in droves for ESO. Wildstar is not on many critics radar even and it will not get that many critics to review it. It's  a small game and not trying to fill any big boy shoes.

one review was critical of the bugs after the first 10 days of ESO - gave ESO a 60

An average critic score of 78 as opposed to 86 and an average user score of 6.7 as opposed to 8.3 is hardly comparable is it. Come on, Wildstar has been far better received than ESO from the get go. It's also clear from players reactions in forums such as this that Wildstar has had a much more successful launch and has a far more developed game. And I speak someone more inclined to the ESO type of game to Wildstar.

 i agree, it helps that WS doesnt have an existing franchise fanbase expectations like ES has

 

WS does want to play w the big boys

https://forums.wildstar-online.com/forums/index.php?/topic/60921-launch-a-labor-of-love/

How many MMOs have you seen that launch kinda well and then fade off because users don’t stick around?  If we’re going to play with the big boys, we have to earn the right to be one of the few MMOs that can not just draw gamers in, but can earn those gamers’ loyalty over time.  It’ll be hard; it’s a tough market out there and there are giants launching on either side of us.

 

i think WS will get plenty of attention

Nah.

Create character; experience the hand holding; kill mobs, do quests, PvP, whatever to level. Rinse repeat. During this process character creation; in-game communication; trade systems ....most stuff doesn't change. And review sub-scores for graphics, sound and so forth won't change..

What you can say is that a reviewer hasn't experienced end-game content. Will that really change the review though?

Imo if WS gets a nice score at early lvl's, then at end game the score will be even better, as it is a game that shines mostly at max lvl content and not that much in the lvling process.

Just 4 professional reviews in at this point, things can still change considerably.

Rated WS a 6 and ESO a 5, stand by both of those grades.

I hope the game does well, it can only help the industry. But I just don't see it. The dungeons and adventures are fantastic but that's it. The solo play is ho hum and the PvP is not my cup of tea.

I would be shocked if this game was still relevant a year from now.

Definitely, it's not that fun or as awesome as peeps claiming it to be, initial launch hype lets call it, once the shiny wears off it'll be the old story of doom and gloom as they return to wow. You heard it here first, the writing in on the wall.
