OP  5/27/14 4:51:49 AM#1

First off, anyone who knows me from these forums, knows I do not particularly like MMOs anymore.

I have a love hate relationship with WoW, I hate cartoony and cutsey tootsie graphics, and I avoided Wild Star up until the final beta, even avoiding reading anything about it.

I also despise subscriptions.

Yet, I played the final beta, open beta, and plan on subbing to Wild Star.

Here is why I love the game that has all the things I hate in it.


2) Not a WoW clone...the character graphics are not like WoW, they are a combo of Orcs Must Die and some characters from the old "Loony Toons" "Bug Bunny" cartoons, and the only thing similar to WoW is some of the landscapes, which blow WoWs away.

3) There is a ton to do...I mean a TON and if you some how run out of things to do, just run off in any direction and you will find something!

4) PvP is so different than WoW, more complex, i.e. moodie masks and the mechanics to their spawning and when you can grab them, also dont expect anyone to speed hack across the landscape or any other type of speed buff when carrying a flag/moodie mask.

5) Zerg? What Zerg? I see the teams that win have one really goodplayer guarding the masks, while the rest of team grabs masks, its called TEAMWORK....organizationand teamwork wins.

6) Anyone who claims to have played this game and says its a WoW clone has never played it. Its fun, challenging, and can appease the casual gamer up thru hard core gamers.

7) Also it has lasting value..unlike Elder Scrolls which does offer a nice relaxing immersive game, with very interesting crafting, it still wears thin quickly. Not so with Wild Star, there is no unfun grind like parts of WoW or shallowness as in ESO.

Wild Stars only flaw is the starting areas...they do not do justice to the game and even almost scared me away from Wild Star. If you can suffer thru the starting areas, which some indeed do like, the game is totally different once you leave them and just keeps getting better and better every level. By level 15 its a totally different game in teh major cities.

Watch all the videos on the wild star site, especially War Plots #2.

Also, housing is the most awesome experience that no one can touch....

Remember..I hate MMOs, subs....but I really like Wild Star.

Might not be a WOW clone but it shares far more similarities than differences, and is clearly a standard theme park.

Nothing wrong with that if you enjoy those style games, sounds like you found one you really enjoy, but let's try to not portray it as something really different.

I do find WS extremely similar to WoW in all it´s mechanics.

It does play like a WoW 2.0 in space...with housing

If you like that kind of game...hub questing...gear grinding &´s ok!

They are not only referring to the theme park design when they say that. They mean the graphics too. I do not mind the former but anyone who has played the game for awhile will realise the latter is simply untrue. 


The world design and the characters plus the setting and atmosphere is truly quite different but these superficial comparisons will continue to be made and those of us who play have to learn to ignore it. I also think that some folk cannot actually distinguish between art and graphics. They perceive an art style and clump everything together. This world has a fabulous design and idea behind some of the places and items . If you observe carefully you can see they were influenced  by movies,books and other games. It's quite a remarkable art style so colour me impressed I guess. 


OP you're wasting your breath.The people who continue to compare this to WoW will not stop and those who know the game do not need the clarification. Good effort though.


I think there are tonnes of things to do too . See you in game.


For the tonnes of things to do see above video. I am not going to bother to enumerate them. If one is interested they will take the time and effort to find out otherwise it is just an attempt to sound skeptical which frankly I am not inclined to entertain.

I agree with this completely. Wildstar is certainly designed with the same heart as WoW, and even the dev's state that they want to appeal to former WoW subscribers. It builds upon what is good about WoW (like WoW did with other games), and adds many new twists and new types of content (Warplots, extremely customizable housing, adventures).

Ultimately. it is a themepark, but it's a damn good one. It doesn't try to hide that.

For me, since WoW is currently in a ridiculous content drought, Wildstar is a great alternative for some competitive raiding and pvp.

Seriously who cares? I always find these threads funny...why does anyone who likes the game and plans on playing it care that it is compared to wow? I played wow for a long time and now I don't...I tried this one in beta and the first thing that popped in my head was...this is just like wow with a sorta kinda gw2 combat system...but I still pre ordered what's the big deal? If you can't see how someone wouldn't see this game and immediately think wow...then your kidding yourself

This... that should have been the OP's first thought and should always be in the mind of anyone who wants to start a rant on something.


Don't expect you'll change people's minds.  You may get them to try it, but they still will compare it to WoW because as other says it shares many similarities.  Some mechanics might be different but still has the cartoony look and level based/grind let down of WoW.

I certainly agree with early levels not doing justice for the game. first 10-15 levels were soooo bad but once you get into dungeons and whatnot its becomes so much more. every fight is very interactive and fun. They should have had a dungeon system like WoW and rift where you could pretty much level to max just from doing dungeons. From what ive heard the best way to level is to grind high XP mobs with friends

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

There is no such thing as WoW clones...this games plays very different from WoW... yet there are also a lot of simmiliarities as both remain themepark MMo´s....


On top of that the developers use the same formula that made WoW a success based on the orriginal EQ, the formula,  - -

- Remove and replace the things not fun

- Improve the things that are fun

- Keep the basics that work well in other games

- Add some new inovative stuff


Basically this is what WoW did, based on theEQ experience.

And this is what Wildstar does based on WoW.

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

I will say one thing if I may , I was playing the other night and when I was accepting and turning in quests , I couldn't believe how similar the sound effects are when you do so. I don't know if its a coincidence or the dev's realized that the sound effects in Wow for handing in quests / levelling up etc are part of what makes it so addictive. If so it is quite a clever move on the Wildstar dev's part to recognize some of the elements that make Wow so addictive and implement similar if not the same things into their game.

Hate to break it to you but the art devs, at least a few, worked at Blizzard.  And it shows.  The graphics are disgustingly identical and way too cartoony.

"best way to level" lol.... no

the only best way to level is the way that is the most fun for you.

and i agree with OP. the game is not WoW.... not WoW at all. there -is- loads of stuff to do, and the game is trying to be different.

That is not news  many people already knew the art design is reminiscent as the artist is the same but you confuse art style with design. The color palette is also similar but the crazy cartoon is really something you either like or despise .There is no middle ground. People instinctively either like or dislike it. 


Not to worry those of you who like the art style or look past it can enjoy the game. No point calling it names though it just does not make the art any less artistic or bad just different. One must learn to embrace cartoons and anime. Lovely mediums.

I'm glad you found a game you enjoy.  For me, I stopped playing in beta as it felt exactly like WoW to me.  To each his own I guess.

AGREED! This is defiantely not a wow clone, it is a allods online clone. In comparison allods online offers tons of more things to do then wow. I think wildstar fits perfectly in this category except it had a bigger budget and is more polished. The 15 dollars a month and box price is totally worth it. They are using a next gen game engine and not using voxel's to delivery legendry vistas as far as the eye can see. It's a step up from wow in terms of gameplay and combat and delivers a more bang for your buck if your subbing for wow now. Name one person complaining about this won't find one. It will be a sure hit as the best online mmo for 2014.

Such a WoW clone

Wildstar is not a WoW clone, however on these forums if you similar enough to WoW you are a WoW clone. That also implies, on these forums, that the game is a not worth playing.

I like Wildstar, and will be playing. It is similar to WoW and that is a good thing. 

Make your own decisions, don't try and defend your game, and don't listen to the "cool kids"... that is the only way to function in the mmo universe.
