5 sounds like a pc or internet provider issue, game ran smooth for me on my mid range pc, never had a crash, the servers were really good no lag problems. You do need a better pc than for the likes of eq2 and wow, tsw is a much more technically advanced game. I'm suprised you had worse performance than swtor though, that runs terrible for me with more than 10 people on screen.

2 I agree with, 4 also to a degree, although you do get a lot of options in how you dress your character as you play.

I never said anything about hardware performance issue but i was talking about latency and server disconnects and freezes caused by high latency. I get constant FPS of 40 in game which is quite good.

If i was alone suffering from this problem i woudl call my internet provider asap  but when after 5 to 6 seconds of freeze suddenyl the general chat looks like this..

Player 1; LAGGGGGGG

Player 2; Omgaddd lagggggggg..

Player 3; Did everyone freeze? for f*** sake FC get your shit together..

Player 4 ; Arggghhh i died to lagg again......

You know you are not alone.

Also the zombie i am talking about is specificaly related to End Of Days event and not the one related to cursed talisman. it stops spawnig once you kill it and pick up it remains but problem is that it is red to new players.

I really felt that i was being trolled by FC when that red zombies killed me in 4 hits as soon as i got in Kingsmouth feeling all tough and  cocky with biceps flexing out of my sleevless top.

So becuase YOU get lag and lots of DC's that means we ALL get them, is that correct?

I have suffered 2 disconnects in the months of playing TSW, lag has been non existant, I'm not denying ppl suffer from Disconnects or lag but members from my multi gaming guild complain about the exact same issues in WoW which this week suffered a 12hr issue that prevented nearly all of the EU from entering the game, and there was some pretty pissed off ppl I can tell you.

As for exploits well you gotta be some kind of idiot to think a forum won't delete any thread that mentions them, wether to explain how they work or that they exist, your advertising the fact there is an exploit out there to those that are eager to abuse the game, you report the game in-game via the ticket system if you come across a problem, you don't go and tell the whole world on the open forums.

 

 

No you are not correct. What i wrote in OP is my own personal experince and  what i read and saw in general chat as well as the game experince of those with whom i have been running dungeons. Nowhere even once i mentioned that 'all' get them. Your own words not mine. But did i see a lot of players talking about it and suffering from lag, disconnects? yes.

Also i don't see any reason of hostility. You calling me an idiot..even though i never posted any  thing about exploit on forums however i did see them disappearing very fast. Good players trying to bring up the issue so that it gets fixed nothing more. Only idiots are those who are exploiting the event.

I suggest read my OP again properly so that we are atleast on same page for further discussion.

Yeah, I can live with the load times, and the disk usage during play, but it would be better if that didn't happen. I don't have the money right now for a new SSD right now.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

You should give it more than an hour, the first Few hours play makes you think its constant cutscenes and corridors like swtor. It opens up more once you get away from Tokyo / home city / kingsmouth town centre.

Nice article! Smells like a dying MMO to me; reminds me a bit of how stuff went several months after the release of warhammer online. Keep up the writing!

Probably not, and how the hell did you come to that conclusion?

This is one of those games that I had really high hopes for. I wish companies finished their products for once.

OP you should have read up about the game first.  As many of your issues are not issues to others (I couldn't care less about "events" or PvP or pretty character customization).  I find the setting, interesting quests and freedom to make my own class much more important than a pretty character or seasonal events.  To bad you didn't read up about the game first or you would have realized that PvP was going to be REALLY difficult to balance with this type of skill wheel setup and likely that PvP would suffer.  Luckily you didn't spend much on it and can move on without much thought.

Your system issues definitely are not something I've experienced.

yeah he should have read more about the game to see its one you like.  ooooook lol.  or did you mean read to see funcom failed to add and fix pvp?  or both lol.  and of course because mardukk claims no performance issues experienced then the game has none...heh

 

Do I have type it in caps that PvP isn't a strength of the game?  Maybe if you lived in a cave you would not have heard that PvP isn't this game's strength and you shouldn't purchase the game for PvP reasons only.  For the love of god people look around and do the smallest bit of research before purchasing a game.  I'm trying really hard to find some sympathy for OP but I just can't muster it.

 

OP why do you care if someone exploits an event?  Does this game have viable PvP or open world PvP....no.  So why the hell would you let that ruin your entire game experience?  

 

Because you are having issues doesn't make this game a complete fail as you are in the extreme minority with lag/system issues.

They have a soild title. They just don't have a solid and more aggressive team to back up their title. A good game is nothing without good support.

As you stated, a good game is nothing without support. However good support for a bad game doesn't work either. TSW is just simply a bad game, not much at this point can fix that.

So, you'll have no compunction in changing the title of your thread from the melodramatic one that it is to something like "this game appears to be a mess" or "in my opinion, this game is a mess"?

I find this useful when trying to write opinion pieces: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-Prime

Some scholars advocate using E-Prime as a device to clarify thinking and strengthen writing. For example, the sentence "the film was good" could translate into E-Prime as "I liked the film" or as "the film made me laugh". The E-Prime versions communicate the speaker's experience rather than judgment, making it harder for the writer or reader to confuse opinion with fact.

Emphasis, mine.

 

As for the exploit, yes, I agree, it's rife. I petitioned a GM and their response was "we're aware of it, we're looking into it and I can't comment on whether it is considered an exploit at this time, though if you are consider participating in this actibity I would recommend erring on the side of caution" - good enough for me. I hope they come down hard on those using it.

My whole guild dropped this game because the lag has become unbearable since the last patch (that was before the B2P influx). Lets not pretend it doesnt exist.  Before the patch, ran smoothly at max settings. After the patch, runs like an old film at minimum settings with massive lag spikes every minute or so. The only way I can play is by speccing as a tank and hoping the lag isnt long enough to kill me. Dungeons became impossible.

I wouldn't say it's a mess, but it still is an unpolished game, which is why it failed. Not because it's so smart and hardcore. My opinion of TSW is a bit more positive, but I still agree with your criticism.

Putting those Mayan mobs in Kingsmouth was a really stupid decision. It's surprisingly unprofessional.

Basically the OP has no clue and should stick to WOW, there I said it.

Summing up a whole game on a one time event and one of the three pvp games is just bad.

If you really did your research before playing like you said, would have known TSW's strong area was the story arc and PVE mission.

I was under impression that whatever you write as a review, preview or first impression on these forums is nothing more than your opinions based on your own personal experince in the game? do i really have to insert IMO everywhere? honest question.

Also i think to be melodramatic i would have to come up with a review like this...

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

5 sounds like a pc or internet provider issue, game ran smooth for me on my mid range pc, never had a crash, the servers were really good no lag problems. You do need a better pc than for the likes of eq2 and wow, tsw is a much more technically advanced game. I'm suprised you had worse performance than swtor though, that runs terrible for me with more than 10 people on screen.

2 I agree with, 4 also to a degree, although you do get a lot of options in how you dress your character as you play.

I never said anything about hardware performance issue but i was talking about latency and server disconnects and freezes caused by high latency. I get constant FPS of 40 in game which is quite good.

If i was alone suffering from this problem i woudl call my internet provider asap  but when after 5 to 6 seconds of freeze suddenyl the general chat looks like this..

Player 1; LAGGGGGGG

Player 2; Omgaddd lagggggggg..

Player 3; Did everyone freeze? for f*** sake FC get your shit together..

Player 4 ; Arggghhh i died to lagg again......

You know you are not alone.

Also the zombie i am talking about is specificaly related to End Of Days event and not the one related to cursed talisman. it stops spawnig once you kill it and pick up it remains but problem is that it is red to new players.

I really felt that i was being trolled by FC when that red zombies killed me in 4 hits as soon as i got in Kingsmouth feeling all tough and  cocky with biceps flexing out of my sleevless top.

So becuase YOU get lag and lots of DC's that means we ALL get them, is that correct?

I have suffered 2 disconnects in the months of playing TSW, lag has been non existant, I'm not denying ppl suffer from Disconnects or lag but members from my multi gaming guild complain about the exact same issues in WoW which this week suffered a 12hr issue that prevented nearly all of the EU from entering the game, and there was some pretty pissed off ppl I can tell you.

As for exploits well you gotta be some kind of idiot to think a forum won't delete any thread that mentions them, wether to explain how they work or that they exist, your advertising the fact there is an exploit out there to those that are eager to abuse the game, you report the game in-game via the ticket system if you come across a problem, you don't go and tell the whole world on the open forums.

 

 

No you are not correct. What i wrote in OP is my own personal experince and  what i read and saw in general chat as well as the game experince of those with whom i have been running dungeons. Nowhere even once i mentioned that 'all' get them. Your own words not mine. But did i see a lot of players talking about it and suffering from lag, disconnects? yes.

Also i don't see any reason of hostility. You calling me an idiot..even though i never posted any  thing about exploit on forums however i did see them disappearing very fast. Good players trying to bring up the issue so that it gets fixed nothing more. Only idiots are those who are exploiting the event.

I suggest read my OP again properly so that we are atleast on same page for further discussion.

So, you'll have no compunction in changing the title of your thread from the melodramatic one that it is to something like "this game appears to be a mess" or "in my opinion, this game is a mess"?

I find this useful when trying to write opinion pieces: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-Prime

Some scholars advocate using E-Prime as a device to clarify thinking and strengthen writing. For example, the sentence "the film was good" could translate into E-Prime as "I liked the film" or as "the film made me laugh". The E-Prime versions communicate the speaker's experience rather than judgment, making it harder for the writer or reader to confuse opinion with fact.

Emphasis, mine.

 

As for the exploit, yes, I agree, it's rife. I petitioned a GM and their response was "we're aware of it, we're looking into it and I can't comment on whether it is considered an exploit at this time, though if you are consider participating in this actibity I would recommend erring on the side of caution" - good enough for me. I hope they come down hard on those using it.

so the OF A NEW PLAYER bit wasnt enough to specify it was one opinion, his?  lol....................

Fair point and my honest answer is; I'd love it if that were the case, but the number of opinion pieces stated as fact on these forums is beyond the pale. It never hurts to emphasise that one is being purely subjective and in no way stating opinion as hard fact. Your link is the perfect example (if you take the original "review" in this context).

Not when started with a thread title that cites opinion as fact ("This game is a mess!"), no.

 

edit: to clarify, I play the game, I enjoy the game and for the most part, I agree with most of the OPs points. If my comment comes across as an attack, it isn't. I just find it frustrating on these forums to see so many threads for so many games with mediapathic titles that, deliberately or not (and I'm pretty sure in this case, it wasn't deliberate) cast an overly negative or positive light on a game by their tone.

OP you should have read up about the game first.  As many of your issues are not issues to others (I couldn't care less about "events" or PvP or pretty character customization).  I find the setting, interesting quests and freedom to make my own class much more important than a pretty character or seasonal events.  To bad you didn't read up about the game first or you would have realized that PvP was going to be REALLY difficult to balance with this type of skill wheel setup and likely that PvP would suffer.  Luckily you didn't spend much on it and can move on without much thought.

Your system issues definitely are not something I've experienced.

yeah he should have read more about the game to see its one you like.  ooooook lol.  or did you mean read to see funcom failed to add and fix pvp?  or both lol.  and of course because mardukk claims no performance issues experienced then the game has none...heh

 

Do I have type it in caps that PvP isn't a strength of the game?  Maybe if you lived in a cave you would not have heard that PvP isn't this game's strength and you shouldn't purchase the game for PvP reasons only.  For the love of god people look around and do the smallest bit of research before purchasing a game.  I'm trying really hard to find some sympathy for OP but I just can't muster it.

 

OP why do you care if someone exploits an event?  Does this game have viable PvP or open world PvP....no.  So why the hell would you let that ruin your entire game experience?  

 

Because you are having issues doesn't make this game a complete fail as you are in the extreme minority with lag/system issues.

That is an odd question. Maybe because i don't like game exploits and it is deterrent and discouraging for those who want to win this compeition in a legit way? if you read my OP this one was just one of the many issues and not the only one which hampered my game experince. I can only imagine how all the MMOS would turn out to be if the player base stops caring about exploits.

However, i never said game is a complete failure. You are doing it again...trying to put words in my mouth. What i said was that i realised why TSW failed (past tense) as a P2P model. And i even said that in order to be a long lasting success this time FC needs to be lot more aggressive in their approach.

In which case, my first post still stands. There should be no issue with it being changed to "in my experience, this game is a mess"? Yes? No?

Well my apologies that i am not too faimlar with the status quo of these forums when it comes to giving a review or first impression.  Because  by default such articles are suppossed to be a personal opinion unless it claims to speak on behalf of entire playerbase.

So nope no where i stated  that 'game is a mess' as a fact but you and others are free to interpret title in any manner you like. It is a free world after all.
