It’s been one month since WildStar launched. While it’s been a mostly smooth ride, there’s been a few bumps in the road to shake things up. In his weekly column, Gareth Harmer looks back at both the good and the bad of that inaugural period.

I enjoyed the pvp until the bots came that kind of ruined it for me, I will sub in a few month and see how it is then.

It's a good game. I'm sure they'll work out the kinks. I'm not subscribing, but I do think it's a good game and if I were to play a sub-locked game it would be this.

The game was fun leveling and the class play was enjoyable. I like how the housing works and crafting is a real joy.

There few technical problems I had will likely get worked out over the next couple of months:

  • Poor Framerate: My system is older (i7/920, 9GB ram, GTX260) but even on medium I only run about 15fps. In beta I was running about 35 on high. This becomes a real drag after a while.
  • Poor Server Performance: I got a reasonable amount of disconnects, freezes, and lag. It wasn't a ton, but it was annoying and happened at the most inconvenient times.
The non-technical behaviors aren't something that will likely change:
  • Community: My server, Evindra, has a nice community, but I didn't really click with it. I usually run into people adventuring and find a guild that way. I never did in this game. I rarely interacted with people in town or the open world. Chat was active and friendly, but the gaming just didn't click with me.
  • Progression: The game is focused on dungeon runners and raiders. There isn't a lot of fun progression outside of that. I do have fun in that content and it is challenging, but not very rewarding. That made it hard to get vested in my characters long term.
  • Monthly Sub - I knew my game clock was ticking and that put a lot of incentive on playing this game whether I felt like it or not. It's not the money but the fact that I'm renting a time slick and it feels like I'm wasting it if I don't take advantage of that. Thus my other games got pushed to the side. I don't like that setup. I want to game in the world I want when I want.
The long term progression and the framerates were the two main issues I had out of the above. I will likely buy a month or two sometime down the road, but I can't see this becoming my main game especially not at $15 a month simply for access.

You can tell that a lot of effort has been put in the game, and I think It's really good. I will probably re-sub in a latter date when everything has settled down and/or WoD fails to grab me.

I'm enjoying the game overall. The only framerate issue I've experienced is when I'm in the Exile's capital (I haven't played Dominion yet but I assume they have a similar problem) which can get pretty frustrating. My other big issue is that level progression goes too quickly. Even though I've deliberately not played as often as I could, I'm just a few bubbles short of lv25 in about a month. With my other character, I'm still gaining about a level a day. That's just too fast for me. Whatever happened to enjoying the journey? I wanted something for the long haul and now it seems I'll breeze through most of the content a few months.

I think the game is good. It is overwhelming and gameplay gets to be a bit tedious. It was well thought out, but ultimately it's just to overwhelming for me. I mapped the controls to xpadder, that helped some, but a polished native control made for controllers would be great for this game. There is so much dodging, double jumping, running down enemies..... When there is that much going on, I just like a controller.

I too won't be resubbing, in fact I just sold my pc, my morale with respect to pc gaming is at an all time low, it is not WS fault either.

After almost a year of beta testing, I decided not to buy W*.  Monday I was offered a guest pass so I downloaded it and tried again, just to see what has and hasn't changed.  Sadly, the only noticeable improvement was in my FPS.

I remember saying that the HUD/UI felt way too cluttered during beta, and I remember less 3 months before release they changed it up and it had a decent feel.  Now, it's all cluttered again.  It feels like during the majority of the gameplay I can't see most of the environment/characters/sh*t I should be paying attention to because there's so much useless nonsense popping up all over the place.

There's little to no interaction between players and the only thing seen in chat is the occasional someone looking for help with a group boss.  After 3 days and getting 3 characters to 9 and 11 and 12 (spellslinger, stalker and medic) I'm feeling the same thing I felt in beta.  Boredom.  It seems that right when things start to take off and stop feeling like the "introduction" is over, I start getting that feeling like I'm stepping into another grindfest and have to step away.

I could probably justify spending $60 on the game if it weren't sub-based.  It seems like a game I could play for a while, but only for a couple days a week.  There are F2P games I enjoy much more and spend more time with, so I'd rather give it to them.

I like the game but this is how I feel.  The game is too in your face and over the top.  I feel like I can't relax and play.  It actually showed my appreciation for a well rounded tab target type MMO.

What stood out the most for me was the music.  The music was the game's best feature in my experience - everything else underneath the sugar coated frosted flakes was something I have experienced before.  The housing is very fun and I can only imagine the things they will end up incorporating with it.

I will probably sub back in later on and try it again.

Exactly how I feel too.  I won't sub again until later, not sure what will pull me back, but I literally went and resubbed to my old favorite FFXI and it's like night and day.  Still a challenging game, heck I think it's harder than Wildstar but at least I can find time to relax in it and enjoy the "world".  Wildstar makes me feel like I took an adrenalin pill or speed it's so hectic and over the top.  I truly feel like the hamster in the wheel on their loading symbol lol(I know it's not a hamster).

I love the game and am supporting it actively. I have subbed for three months. That being said, I am taking this game very easily because it is just a bit over the top. It is what I need on the weekend, but not so much what I need after a hard day of work. I find traipsing through D3 torment more relaxing than playing WS.

It is the most downright annoying MMO I've ever played. Wildstar is the only mmo that was literally headache inducing, with over the top in your face overstimulation. It's as subtle as radical amputation with a chainsaw.

Really enjoying the current content and i m really happy they already added more in less than a month. I also got a CREDD so i ll be playing the next month for free :)

Imo easily one of the 2-3 best mmo's in the current market, with huge future potentials.

Bought two accounts, did not subscribe on either of them.  Back to Guild Wars 2.  Will return if/when it goes F2P.

I just wonder if this is the right time to release a game like W*. I wonder that based on general interest in the title, there's very little conversation going on about it. Forum hits are rather low, this has really been the case since it's release a month ago. With so many recent games of it's type, from the resurgence of SWTOR and FFXIV,, as wells as Rift, ESO, etc... Market saturation is essentially at an all time high.

Even if it is better at doing it's features, it has to compete with burnout more than anything. That can be tough in such a climate. I understand a company can't just hold on to a product indefinitely until a better window surfaces, still I wonder if they should have.

Love the game, but due to the framerate issues, I'm not subscribing until they either optimize it or I get a better graphics card.

WildStar is definitely in your face but the experience, for me, is incredible enjoyable and rewarding. Nexus lacks some of the world immersion that other games shoot for but makes up for it with a style that sets it apart from most other games. The game is designed for FUN, and FUN only. It doesn't try to be an alternate life, although I play it like it is, and without apology presents content that does not take itself to seriously. Oddly enough I find myself doing more RP with my Chua more so than with any other character in any game. There is deep lore, and there is wild and wacky. There are stylized graphics mixed with great graphics effects. There is fast paced combat that never lets me lean back in my chair to simply click buttons. There is my  obsession with my house. 

WildStar will not be for everyone, but I am having a great time!


BTW not having any of the technical issue other are, my PC is about 2 years old.

I tried to go back to GW2 a couple months back. Talk about a dried up place to be. So much potential that was wasted.
