Yes.  Predicting this now.  WoW Raiding + Blend of WoW and GW2 Combat + 50% of development effort going to endgame content + tons of freedom = Wildstar.

I wonder how people still think a slightly different mashup of old concepts can ever become the next "big thing"...


If a requirement for a successful MMO is to somehow re-invent the genre then we must think pretty low of MMORPG's.  

No, I'm just sick of cartoon look MMO themeparks with cuddly elements, which instantly remind me of WoW/GW2/Tera and the like.

Obviously M rated realistic looking MMOs are niche and haven't gone mainstream.

Whatever  the "next big thing" is, I doubt it will be another cartoony themepark, simply because the market is already flooded with this stuff.

Who knows, you might be right.  I'm normally not interested in mainstream games like this.  There is more than meets the eye with this one.  I guess I have a hunch, and I haven't been wrong yet.  I guess there's a first time for everything :P

Well, at least from what I've seen it looks like a quality product. Maybe a nice title for younger audiences.

I'm 39 so THANK YOU FOR CALLING ME YOUNG! I feel amazing, I'm drinkin and extra glass of prune juice to celebrate!

Nah. Can't get excited for trinity and instanced raid content as my end-game.

Enter a whole new realm of challenge and adventure.

OP  2/20/13 3:36:27 PM#44

Can I ask a few questions?

1. Will the world be seamless like WoW, or will there be a gazillion loading screens like SWTOR?

(In WoW you can explore so much land and zones and entire continents without a single loading screen. Will WS be like this?)


2. Will housing be instanced like LOTRO?

It's hard to relate, but if it's any consolation Jeremy Gaffney (Wildstar Game Director) was an executive producer on CoH when it first came out.

I think it will be the new rift. A polished game that wow players play when bored of wow.

What of the game has actually been shown? Very little.

Devs promise a lot, but then when devs didnt promise a lot. there are legendary stories based on "devs promises" ;P

So "wait till its released and see type of game it is and what they actually delivered" game for me.

You know what the difference between telegraphing and not telegraphing is? Without it only those "in the know" (aka, "have run the content 100 tiems before so don't bug me, noob") know and with it, new players also know when to get out of the way... I know, I know, it ain't hardcore enough... doesn't bother me in the least.

The telegraphing argument is dumb. What did Carbine do: Implement visual boss mods. They like to control the feature rather than have people wait on the mod's team to make it. I'm fairly, pretty damn certain most hardcore raiding guilds in WoW use a boss mod. There is simply no reason not to. It is only a slightly bigger challenge (from 0 knowledge to muscle memory) that no one really cares about.

EDIT: It's late, didn't read dates properly, sorry for the necro.

I'm expecting it to be more along the lines of the next Rift, rather than the next WoW.

From what little I've seen and read about the game so far, I am currently anticipating the game will settle into a nice corner of the market where it will pull in some old school raiders who have lost their loyalty to a game like WoW or Rift, and a small crowd who is tired of waiting for their favorite MMO to add a fun housing system.


While I realize the game ostensibly offers a lot more to do, I think a heavy emphasis on progression and content gating, and support for things like DPS meters and mods, while appealing to me personally, cuts substantially against the grain of the current MMO playerbase.  Having followed the development of several other major MMOs, those are things that very many players are vehemently against.  Drop into Queensdale in GW2 and type "I wish this game had a DPS meter" and I guarantee you will send everyone in the zone into conniptions.


So ... I do think there is definitely a crowd who has been waiting for a game that combines some of the things WildStar will offer, but I think it would be a mistake to look at the game and say "That looks a lot like WoW, but it also offers this and this and this" and extrapolate from that that WildStar is going to be any more successful than other games on the market.

Why would WoW players move to Wildstar?  If they want a game like WoW, they'll continue playing WoW because they have an established community, characters, etc..

Wildstar won't go anywhere, for exactly that reason.

Wildstar will be GOOD. But NO MMO will ever reach WOW's height. Too many MMO's out there in the market in an A.D.D. society.

Games I played that actually were meaningful to me: UO, EQ, EQ2, Daoc, CoH, Vanguard, Lotro, SWTOR, WOW... looking forward to Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen!

Hey my first post ever! :D


   While Im intrigued by WIldstar's look themes and gameplay possibilities Im holding off.  As a few others have stated Ive been burned too many times by the HYPE. Almost every MMO I've played has suffered from it and while maybe it didnt hinder my gameplay experience Ive seen many players turn red with rage over what was overhyped. Right now the biggest allure of the game and possibly a big thing that could hurt Wildstar, in my opinion, is the lack of details gone about it.  From what an average person or under average (points to self) could see from the trailers and website is interesting and definitely could put the game in someone's radar.  Still with the little info thats out the rest is really just fantasy at this point.  While I want to see many MMO's do well and have a place out there Ive seen a good number crippled by the hype monster even if it has a big name IP attached to it.

    I dont really see the reason for any game at this point to be "as big as WoW"  Sure it be cool to play on a bustling server but I dont' think we'll see it happen again on another game especially if a game a steeper learning curve.  WoW was made graphics that almost anyone could play and easy to jump into learning mechanics.  While it could be debated I also feel WoW launched at a great time, not alot of competition in the MMO market, they had a solid franchise, and a couple years later they got major promotion with that famous South Park episode. 


   Really I think the best thing to hope for is a development team that cares about game and community, a game with solid mechanics and stable world and a reason to keep logging on :)

It's probably just going to be another skuill on the pile outside of World of Warcraft's cave.  I think the only one of its imitators to get away with a modicum of success was Rift, not counting F2P games, of course.  The rest either closed or have been limping along making only a modest profit.

I doubt there every will be a next WoW anyway.  WoW drew in many players who aren't gamers, let alone MMO gamers.  I would bet that when a large number of those players leave WoW, they'll simply stop playing MMOs, rather than search for a new one.  Of those that do move on to other MMOs, they will be spread out in the new saturated market.  WoW was an anomoly that we probably won't see again.

WIldstar will be popular for a bit, then everyone will realise it's nothing but a cheap WoW clone. Check out newest update on "PvP stats" aka resilience/pvp power. Once novely wears off the veterans will ditch this POS and will go back to granddady that is WoW.
