OP  8/12/12 11:33:08 PM#1

1. No raids- No raiding yet and all we got was a measly 7 or 8 missions and a rehas of Nightmares of elite dungeons already in game.

2. Silly sub fee but cash shop oreiented which borders on P2W- TSW simply doesnt have the content to justify paying a monthly sub.

3. Pointless zerg pvp- PvP is supposed to be the strength of TSW with its 3 factions but in reality it is extremely shallow. PvP basically consists of running around in zergs and capping wells and facilities to no end for no reason. There is no actual purpose to TSW pvp. No ladders, rankings, and no way to build a rep because you are given a generic appearance so nobody knows who you are.  On top of this the battleground style PvP is extremely lacking consisting of one shots and CC trains not to mention hour long ques for arguably the only decent BG ElDorado.  The entire system is grindy by nature, the only way to be any good is to have purple gear and that takes for ever to earn.

4. No endgame- TSW endgame= TSW arguablly has the best level up in the MMO genre but once you get to QL10 gear your back to playing a WoW clone with zero raiding, grindy dungeons and no decent way for a DPS to get into Niihgtmare dungeons.  Any game that forces you to play a different game at endgame or level cap is a flawed system.

I really wanted this game to succeed and be great but I cant lie to myself. The fact is that TSW is shallow and generic. Its more  fantasy then modern age, I am sorry but Elementalism (Wizards) Sword/Hammer (Warriors) just feels to fantasy based imo. Something that we have seen a million times. TSW is really just WoW minus raids and good content. Luckily GW2's excellent atmosphere and questing system which is unique and difficult due to the downscaling to the appropriate area plus the open world feeling of the Dynamic event system that leads into Zone wide Meta Events is superior to anything TSW can do and will easily take the place so many raiders clamor for.  GW2 is the next huge MMO tha twill revolutionize the genre and bring about the innovation and epicness all tired themepark MMOs lack cutrrently.  I wont even have to wait for another MMO like Planetside 2 because it isnt even an MMO, its a persistant FPS that offers nothing to the MMO genre.

I agree OP. 

 

FWIW, it'll be fun to watch TSW fanbois come flocking back to their forum... bcbully, bildodoggins, etc.  Haha, good times.

 

ps- Very objective review!  Can't disagree with a single thing.  Certainly players looking to sub should read this first.

I agree with the entire post. I like how you only stated facts and not opinions. Finally someone that has the guts to tell 100% truth without fear of being killed by the Illuminati.

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

I actually like the game and plan on coming back in a few months to see what content they add in, especially a dungeon finder of sorts.  I can handle the horrible PvP (since I didnt pick this game up for its PvP) but being a DPS (and one who loves melee DPS) is arguably an excersie in frustration trying to find groups for nightmares.

Not saying that you experience is invalid, But im melee fist/chaos dps and Havent found any problems getting nightmare groups. I will say that "we" have a tougher job than say ranged.

It's not that I disagree with much of your post, it's just that you claim GW2 is revolutionary and will change future MMOs.  I want to puke.

And there in lies the problem. We can argue that, but it seem every time someone does its labelled a "troll post" or it becomes paralleled with TSW for some unknown reason...

I sit here tonight reading post while downloading another game. Yes, I am a lifetimer of TSW, but I am downloading a different game. I love Funcom, but TSW is not as good as the best game I have ever played. So tonight I download the absolute best game ever made. Age of Conan can't be touched.

I play TSW and OP has alot of validation in his posting, clearly. /sarcasm

p.s. Why  is EA a company in this game? There lies a problem.

Umm .. I can't tell if you are serious, but lol - no. C'mon now, TSW is a thempark game with a lot of shortcomings - but it is not a WoW clone.

 

GW2 is the next huge MMO tha twill revolutionize the genre and bring about the innovation and epicness all tired themepark MMOs lack cutrrently. 

Let's wait and see - GW2 is another thempark, I don't think that it will do nearly as well as many think. I hope it does great don't get me wrong, but it will not dethrone WoW. I think that 2-3 months after release, the masses will be leaving GW2 in droves.

I wont even have to wait for another MMO like Planetside 2 because it isnt even an MMO, its a persistant FPS that offers nothing to the MMO genre.

 Again - wait, what? Have you even played PS2 - I had a chance to try it out hands on and yes I'll admit I was a long time PS1 player, and PS2 does deliver. It has the same HUGE crazy action battles (like 200vs200vs200) it has CD, it is epic - no FPS game comes close to doing large scale combat like PS2 - and there are airplanes, vehicles, MAX (mech) units etc...

 

 

 EDIT - nevermind - op is an assclown copying this garbage from GW2 forums

Quite a lot more fanbois than I thought, I was under the impression most were being objective but these recent threads show how emphatic these people are overall.   They also all seem to wear rose tinted glasses.  But how you spin a free-fall share price will be interesting to see.  Down again this morning  ...
