OP  2/14/13 10:05:14 AM#1

Age of Wushu is a "Shell Game" of the worst order. 

 

Daily limitations on leveling up crafting skills. 

Weekly limit on how many times you can run any instance. 

Extremely low drop rates on game changing PvP skills in PvE instances, that are quite possibly the most boring tedious grinds known in the history of MMORPGs. 

Decaying Mounts, Bags, Gear.  (but you can buy the mount on the cash shop, only for 5 bucks in real money) 

"VIP status" for purchasing a Beta game that has a finite time limit. 2 months for 20 bucks? Mind you if you aren't VIP you basically are going to be non-viable in game. 

 

So all in all, to be competitive in this game, you have to purchase VIP, a $5 mount every month, and whatever else Snail Games throws at you to entice you to gain an advantage.  Mind you the classes are so imbalanced that there's no point in playing unless you're a Scholar or Shaolin. 

[mod edit]

Only thing that this game has is the jumping skills.  Despite what people say, combat is clunky as hell.  How many times have you tried blocking to basically be perma cc'd by a Shaolin? 

If you still want to try this game, don't say you haven't been warned.

If that is true, then it is a basic P2W game.

 

BUT, based on threads, on this site, I am not sure if you are correct or not. Maybe others with actual game play experience will chime in.

mmorpg.com should just replace their domain with hatersgonnahate.com .  It's a more accurate representation of the "community" here.

The degrading items are useful for a player driven economy.  Time limits on the items ensure that you people will keep buying said items.  The majority of them can - and are - made by players, such as the bags.  However, the horse expiration is something that I find to be absurd.

VIP is $10.  The "Deluxe" package is more.  $10 gets you offline training and access to the beta as much as you want.  I do agree that the time limit put on the beta is nothing but a money grab.  The "Deluxe" package gets you VIP for two or three months (I forget which) as well as item mall stuff, so it actually comes out to be cheaper than all of it would be if bought separately.

Basically, it's not a bad deal.  Nobody is forcing you to buy it.  The game is in beta, so if you don't want to deal with the restrictions then wait for it to release.  It's not like it's going to cost you anything, being F2P.

I haven't messed with the instances, but I'm sure that you're exaggerating those as well.

Now hurry and report me to the mods as "Trolling" because you don't like what I'm saying.


I probably don't follow the threads that I post in. If you want me to see a response then feel free to PM me.

OP  2/14/13 10:19:27 AM#4

I have a level 36 inner Wudang and a 31 Royal Guard... I have a lot of in-game experience. 

I forgot to mention the only things to do everyday are... 

-Spy from other schools (Basically walking around looking for an offline player to steal "Information" from, no one stops you as there's no point plus most people who actually patrol are AFk just cultivating)

-Kidnap offline players (if you aren't VIP you only make 1 liang, and can only do this once per hour) 

-Steal school scripts (extremely low drop rate if you can get passed the zerg of players standing their spamming their cc's and stuns) 

-Twilight Village (so boring and annoying at times that it might give you a cataract) 

-Green Cloud Castle (Took a friend of mine 7 hours to complete) 

-Gathering mats to sell or make items (a daily limit on how much experience you can get) 

If you decide to go kill or fight people, after about 5 kills you gain enough infamy to the point where you go to jail. Even capturing a guild territory is just a spam fest. If there's even resistance, as this system seems bugged, it's just this big zerg with people spamming aoe stuns... If they have a lot of scholars is just a faceroll. 

I'm telling you, just do yourself a favor and don't buy into the hype on this board, I too at one point saw the potential of this game, then I realized what it's true intended purpose was.

This was discussed a bunch in another thread, I think it's a 50/50 split on who thinks the game is a bargain F2P game and others who think it's a P2W fest. I tend to fall on the pay2winshu side of things, but this game does offer a lot of things that other games don't have, which is really cool.

Currently Playing: Rift, ESO, EQ1, Various betas
Have played: You name it.

Lol you're misinformed dude... The fact that you haven't "messed with the instances" obviously shows your lack of knowledge about this game. I'm usually the first person to play devils advocate against haters, but this game makes it so obvious that I felt compelled to warn someone to spend their hard earned dollars on such a whored out game.

Wait let me get this straight... A company is trying to get their customers to pay money for a product? That's surely newsworthy!

On a serious note: thanks for sharing your story here. You're basically saying you've spent a lot of time on a game you obviously hate. Congrats!

All games are made to make money, some are just more blatent than others, get over it and move along if your not happy.

 

No one is forcing you to play and pay!

If only it were that basic.  I want the game to change because in truth it has the foundation, yet the developers' driving motive will cause it to fail in the long term.

 

 I'm not going to continue with this thread, because you guys' obviously haven't played as much as me nor have commited the effort..  If you think you're doing the community a service by playing devils advocate despite not understanding the full meta-game, you're not.  

Hopefully a miracle will happen and DFUW will be a good game, then I won't have to feel like a troll.

I wonder if you have to pay a sub in dfuw to be competitive ?

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

2/14/13 12:48:43 PM#17
Even though I do not play the game I will defend its right to monetize how they fit.  It's silly for anyone to argue anothers business decision, you either accept it or move on.  It's as silly as walking into the grocery store and complaining that milk is $4.07 a gallon.  Don't like it don't buy it, simple as that.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

There is a difference between charging for a product and trying to squeeze as much as you can from your customers. The entire F2P model is based so that, some of the user base, keep paying more, More and MORE money. That is not a healthy bussiness model, that is just greed.

Subscription based is a healthy model. You pay the box price and a fixed low cost every month and for that you get everything in the game (barring future expansions).

That is assuming there are any options. With the current trend, Pay to Win model, will be the only model available and I dont want to move on from my hobby just because a bunch of greedy Suits have taken it over.

Freeloading mooches are the scourge of the gaming community.

So if you like the game subscribe and stop whining, if you  want to freeload accept the limitations of your free pass. The whining though is pathetic.
