Everyone bashed EQN graphics, and yet these are even more garish and cartoony...

Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...

Umm... I think that is because they were expecting the same graphical style of previous Everquest games and are disappointed by the change in style.  Wildstar doesn't have all those preconceived notions of what the game would look like to worry about.

 

Anyway, GIMMME MAH KEY.

 

I'm seriously looking forward to this game, it may end up being too twitchy for me, but I love how much thought has gone into all of their system design.  I really hope I can find a new home here, as it is the only game coming out soon that I would even consider paying a sub for.

I thought I was done with hotbar style mmos, considering I have more fun with EVE's ui, but these guys seem pretty focused on making the game actually fun. Guess I'll have to give them a chance.

I have submitted for beta months ago.  Anyone in it?  Does it in fact exist?

Current Games: WOW (what else?)

I am stoked for this game.

 

Everything about it looks very promising. I can't wait to get a beta and dive in to see what it's all about. If anyone has a spare key, hook a brother up :)

I have been watching the twitch streams as they've (re)rolled out classes.  I have to say that I'm less excided now that I've watched them.  The game appears to be more of a WoW clone than I was expecting.  And the combat didn't really seem all that exciting when watching it... maybe the telegraphs need to be faster, or some of the slow charging skills need to be more impactful.  (Yes, it's closed beta, so I'm sure there are more changes to come.)

I still want to try Wildstar; my reaction may be much different if I'm in control of the character rather than watching.  I will be looking forward to open beta next year... not going to hold my breath for a winter beta invite since it sounds like a small percentage of those that signed up for beta will actually get in (seems to be typical for closed beta).

Marketing hype. All talk and no show.

WildStar. The iPhone of the MMO industry.

People like you are why this generation and the next ones to come are doomed. LMAO that your so hurt about not getting a key. This I want instant gratification and everything handed to me is very amusing to watch when you don't get your way :) ...thanks I needed to LMAO ( its getting big )

 

Oh and beta does exist I know a few friends / ex-guild mates that got in. Just have to wait our turn

All the butthurtness for not getting an invite, sucks to suck.  The game isn't over hyping itself and if you've like what you've seen then you'll like the game.

Beta request was in on day one of sign ups... pretty much given up on getting into beta on this one.

I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

I find it very interesting that you Elocke would say this. I don't always see things eye to eye with you, but I respect your opinions for the most part.

I am not a part of beta and I doubt I will be, for I detest Social Media, and my stance on that is known, and Wildstar Dev speaks obnoxiously push Social media like a new street drug..... so I seriously doubt they will even want me as a customer let alone a beta tester... but I am still watching this one with some hope. Wildstar's continuing campaign to push Social Media in the Dev Speaks are getting on my nerves, that is a fact.

If your intent was to seed some doubt, well the seed is planted.

Been playing the WS Beta, level'n both Exile and Dominion toons. Been having a blast, BUT, yea... It's an MMO, a very well done and fun experience, with some extra goodies that make the experience fun... But alas, the sky hasn't opened for me, and I have yet to experience what the 'Fandom' is looking for.
That said, you can see the detail and talent that has gone into WS. I can only think good things for its future. I'll surely be pick'n it up at launch.
Also, I participated in ZERO social media events. I haven't once posted on any of the popular outlets. The claim that the DEV's only hand out BETA keys to those that dig deep into social media are just plain FALSE.

People really need to lay of this Wow clone nonsense, it's just sad now. Few years ago i would have aggred because most games where cloning it massivily, but now? people seem to say it over the tiniest of things, and i say this as a person who plays wow still. Most of the features mentioned in this game are not even in Wow, at all, so i don't know what makes it a CLONE, yes it has a few simliar aspects, but that's far from being clone. Also concidering it has aspects from other games and some of it's own idea, it would be more a hybrid than a clone making it different

.

I will echo what I said once before, As a person who has loved and enjoyed Wow I just think it's a has-bean game now, the game is no longer for gamers who enjoy the epic journey, meeting new players and banding together for the final end game challenge, but more for gamers who want things instantly, insta loot, insta levels, to the point in the next xpac you can have an NPC farm for you :(. I have no hate towards the game, just very disappointed in the direction it decided to go down. It's fine if people can still enjoy and play it but I soon think it will be time for me to call it quits, when Wildstar is released as it seems it will offer the gameplay i desire.

Too much toon'ish for me, but it is clear that they both have humor and some good ideas to build on. I think this will be a success. Just not for me.

The fact that reportedly over 1 million People put in for beta testing might have had something to do with why the vast majority of People did not, nor will not, get a beta invite. I have not evidence at hand to prove the over 1 million number, only I remember seeing it reported on these forums a few weeks back. Might be bad info, but it would not surprise me one bit if there were that many People looking to get in.

That is not "hypermarketing fail" in the slightest btw.... that is "expectations exceeding reality by light years fail" on the part of everyone that complains they didn't get one. I put in for beta and I know I got a better chance of winning the Power Ball Lotto than getting an invite for this beta.

 

@ Instigator-Jones... thanks for your opinions as well. Much appreciated.

Had no interest in this game until I saw the recent videos. While not a massive fan of sci-fi, the world has a lot of character, and the classes look like fun.  Definitely keen to check this out.

Not this again. EQ1 was cartoony. There was a change in style from EQ2, but not from EQ1, they were just going back to their roots. 

I guess EQ2 players can complain about the change in art style, although given the gumby play-doh faces in EQ2 (original non-SOGA models) they aren't really in a position to claim that EQ was ever realistic.

^ This.

 

When EQ first launched, the graphics were primitive enough that you could argue they were either "realistic" or "cartoony".  However, as the game developed and their graphics tech matured, it started to adopt are more "cartoony" aesthetic. 

 

I don't see anything wrong with EQN or even WildStar's art direction.  Both games are looking great.
