OP  3/09/13 5:42:21 AM#1

I cannot fathom why people here seem to like this game so much.

For a D&D game this is one of the most Boring, Linear, and unindepth/simplistic out of all the D&D games I have ever played in my life. Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights had more depth, class customization, and uniqueness, and these were single player games that came out over 10 years ago.

Even Dungeons and Dragons Online has more depth than this sorry excuse for a D&D game. Everyone chooses the same class skills, aquires the same traits, and can specialize in small things like a little bit of armor resistance or damage, but not enough to really make a huge inpact on anything. About the only good thing about this game is the Graphics, and Gameplay. This game is one of the most boring games I've ever played. I had more enjoyment in the latest Skyrim DLC and that wasn't even that great.

PS: I don't care if this is beta, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize what kind of game this is.

Cheers,

-Trash

 Different taste for different people? Why not let people try it for free and make up their own minds?

I'll go out on a limb here and guess theres somethings you like that great majority of others don't?

Neverwinter isn't the deepest D&D experience I've ever played and many will not like it because of that but then on the other hand I'm guessing that most have only seen alittle of the full game. My highest was lvl 14 of a possible 60 levels. I found the combat fun, and hope that the classes open up more as the game grows. I'm not sure how limited they are by the 4e rule set though. I personally prefer the 3rd edition.

Yeah, I prefer third edition D&D also, 4th turned it into a computer game style thing..... Order of the Stick's comparison was great.

I watched one of the videos for Neverwinter, and guess what? The main attack for a cleric was ranged, zapping out of a holy symbol...

WTF?

Clerics cast Bull's Strength, Shield of Faith, then wade into melee with their mace swinging.

It's nothing like the 3rd Ed lore I'd be willing to play.

Thanks for your warning? op..but i am having loads of fun and i will be playing this for  al ong time. It is a kick ass game for  free to download and play. Tera on the other hand with its teddy bear popori and sexualised child like races running around completely ruined it for me.

NWN luckily doesn't go that cheap route to attract players.

Yeah I found that this game was more like playing an Arcade Fighting game out of the 80's then a D&D game, let alone a RPG. There is nothing really RPG'ish about this game other then you lvl up.

I think the thing that really broke the game for me was the shiny fly by wire line on the ground you follow when ever you get a quest.

I shit you not. There is an actual line of shiny glimmer that you follow through all your quests showing you the shortest way to the next step of teh quest. This kinda got to be laugh out funny when I got into a room where the teh path up to a platform was not imidiately clear. Good for me I had a shining line showing me exactly which way I should wald through this mini puzzle.

And dont get me started on the "twitch" battle in this. It just dont work. The ammount of times that I have been hit by monsters doing close combat damage after having run away from them several seconds ago is just silly.

They have dumbed the gamepley in this so much down that I cant take it seriously.

But then again DDO was a mess to on release. GIve it a few years and they might actually put some D&D feel into this one as well.

So i guess you never played EQ1 and EQ2? this is something that has existed for more than 10 years. And something which can easily be turned off. Game has problems and things that needed to be looked no doubt but shiny trail leading you to quest objectives is not one of those.

[mod edit]

I think this game is way better than Tera with the quest as a whole being some of the most interesting in any mmo.  However, the linear aspect of leveling bothers me to the extant of alt play throughs; that being said this linearity won't be much of an issue if the community takes to the foundry system and can produce some good content.

I've been playing DnD computer/video games since gold box days and there have been a lot of DnD games that resemble the pen and paper version a lot less than this one. This game has an overall Dungeon and Dragons feel to it, regardless of the action combat.

$0.02 time!...

Okay, for this, first I'm going to start with the blue...

You're obviously trolling with that comment, as the game immediately tells you after you begin playing that it can be turned of with a single press of the 'z' button. It literally has a 'Z' on screen next to this text about the size of an average mans thumbnail. So I do not understand your complaint. If you don't like a fly-by-wire glowing trail of breadcrumbs, turn it off... I remember when I played PnP WoD VtM (ACRONYMS! >,< HAXOR) there was a background called Benefactor, which meant the GM could tell you hints whenever he felt you needed one in game... I like to think of a game with glowing breadcrumbs a benefactor, giving you a hint when you really need it, but something you can turn off (or silence with a coke & bourban) when you don't. And let's not forget, that one of WoW's most downloaded addons from Curse.com was actually this very thing, a quest organiser, designed to show you were to go to finish your quests in order,  so popular, that Blizz built one of their own into their game...

Y3ll0w? Most classes have either a block or a dodge skill. I just played to level 5 with what I am affectionately dubbing an ARCANE(Control) Wizard. Hold shift or double tap in any different direction to teleport a short distance away. Hold down Shift whilst running diagonally even teleports you diagonally. Holding down shift and w while jumping over a small gap actually teleports you over the small gap! (Cryptic actually did a good job on this whole teleport thing, I really digs it! - My GF says it reminds her of Azezal from XMen: FC) My point is this, if you're getting hit too much, your not using the mechanics to your advantage.

Red: No arguement. They have, the game has been simplified to enable it to be played through their engine. Hopefully, it'll become more complicated later. I love the fact that Guardians can detect traps, but only Rogues can disable them... Who knows, in a couple months, they'll make Arcance traps that only Wizards can disable when detected, or religious sigils that must be interacted with clerics to achieve something or other... But as this is a beta, who knows what we'll see?

GW3EN? I was never able to get into DDO when it launched. I got into it just after they announced the expansion Denizens of the Underdark and played it with my then flatmate. Our thoughts were, 'Wow! We have so much choice for our classes!' which soon turned into, 'Hey, I got told if I wanted my rogue to do more damage, I should've taken this feat, gotta reroll', which became 'Hey, I paid for that pack that allows you to start your adventures at level 10 instead of level 1 because I'm sick of rerolling noobs whenever I do something wrong', which led us to, 'Man, f*** this, we're in a level 20 raid/dungeon, and everyone is almost identical and zerging these bloody giant mesphits, I'm out.'

Point is, given all the unlimited options you were in DDO, people still theorycrafted the sh!t out of it. Given the paths of least effort for maximum reward, the community chose the same damn path, each and every time.

 

Neverwinter will probably be like that... But atleast it'll be like that, differently. I think...

Yeah, there is nothing of a RPG in this game. It is a shallow 3D dungeon crawler unfortunately. Quite bad animations, a character system that seems to be copied from Diablo III (wow, and that one was really f... up) and lots of randomised instanced Dungeons.

And the trend is, to just play for free. Noone seems to care if the game is not good, the most important part is playing for free.  /facepalm

Hodor!

OP, people have different opinions and preferences. The fact that you don't care for it doesn't entitle you to attack or belittle those who do enjoy it, as you did in your first and second posts in this topic.

I read your Bio and I woud think that someone who claims to be so caring and one who works with the mentally ill to be more open-minded and supportive of iindividual differences.

The only good that is going to come out of this game, is hopefully the Devs from other companies will take the idea of the Foundry and implement it into other games. Player content is the best idea ever. Make our own dungeions, monsters, weapons... if there was some way to make models in game... Man. How many people you think would pay 25$ for the game Dev's to make their user submitted drawing into a monster in game for their personal dungeon that they made?

The foundry truly is a very good idea. And hopefully some MMORPG in future will pick that up.

But this game is just not for me. Too much boomboom, too less options.

First off, no, I am not trolling. I ahve been told a few times in this thread that this is a "normal" mechanic. I have never seen it before, and tbh, its a stupid mechanic that just kills the game for me.

But ok, I can turn it off. (A fact I missed be curse the game was BOMBING me with info the first two half minute, and I obviously missed that one. Here beta IS a valid excuse...)

It still leaves me having played to level 6 a all dungeons have been designed completely linear. Trash DDO all you like but they have interesting dungeon designs from start to end and you actually get to decide which to take not just a fly by wire a to b to c dungeon line up. It might change at later levels, but in that case they fail at gaining my attention in those crucial first few dungeons. It playes more like Diablo than a D&D session.

I would probably not be so hard on the game if it did not carry the D&D label. Being a D&D game actually makes me expect it to have something in common with the property which, from a game mechanics perspective, it just does not have...

Sadly many of us dont care how much the game cost or how big subscription fee it has. I am willing to pay whatever for good mmorpg, but I wont play mmorpg just because its kinda good for free to download and play game :)

I rather pay 100 euro per month for great mmorpg than pay 0 for good mmorpg.
