OP  7/17/14 9:42:40 AM#1

There is something bothering me about the general consensus that Wildstar's dungeons/raids are too difficult for "casual" players.  It's not!  The term "casual" doesn't imply "herp derp", it just means that they don't spend 20 + hours a week on the game or they don't chose to participate in large scale raiding. 

 

In fact Wildstar's telegraph system is one of the fairest least gear dependent systems I have ever seen.  Most damage is totally avoidable (tanks excluded) which basically means if you don't stand in poop you win.  There is far less RNG involved than in games like WoW. 

 

I think the one thing Carbine should incorporate is some 10 man end game content on par with the 20/40 mans.  In my opinion the best raiding model ever was WoW back in TBC.  You had 10 the option of doing either 10 or 25 or both through most of the expansion.  Kara was kind of the entry level 10 man raid when you got to 70 (after attunement) but once you had the gear you could also add in Gruuls and Magtheridon (sp?).   This model worked out well because 10 mans are very PuG-able and that was where most people met their guilds (if they didn't already have one), this held true even in T5 as you had ZA.

 

So I would encourage Carbine to add some 10 or 8 man content for end game for each tier! 

 

Also remember, that game communities aren't build by the devs, they are built by the players.  Help people out when you can, encourage don't discourage.  If someone isn't doing something right help them constructively.  No one ever learned by being told "you should uninstall you baddie!!".

There are plenty of "casual" gamers who have been beating genuinely hard games (as opposed to the fake hardness of MMORPG raids with gear gates and other bullshit) since computer gaming started.

 

People simply like to conflate terms catagories together so that they can disparage certain people without getting called on it.  They like to use "causual" to actually refer to the "Lowest Common Denominator" rather than someone who doesn't play all the time or who weights other things in life as more important.

 

In a practical sense human communication never really exists without a number of layers of lies, people don't even know they are doing it often.  But they also kind of do know.  Don't bother calling them out on it, though, that is like trying to grab a fish bare handed and since most people do it they automatically defend it.

 

In short its all bullshit and politics; don't get involved in it.

Well, if Wildstar's raids (and the attunement to get into raiding) aren't too difficult or otherwise offputting for most players, then there must be an great lack of people playing the game, as only 89 guilds have downed even the first raid boss.

I disagree. I have never quit an MMO for being too difficult until now. I got to 50 and quit within a week.

You see, that is ok.  The MMO isn't for you.  That doesn't mean it's not gonna appeal to another MMO Player.  There are a lot of easier mmos out their (the leveling in the game I mean).  I think Wildstar is just trying to be different.  I also think the game will only get better and better as time goes by with each new patch.

This game is to hard. Anyone who ran the first instance at 20 can tell you that. At 50 its the same deal. I don't like having to join a guild just to get a 5 man instance down, so if i cant pug in your game then its to hard. I tried it out at 50 as healing and dps on a medic then quit. as a medic i have to say the damage does come in to fast for you to heal it all in most teams. and the average player who will que as dps is usually the first to die. imo they need to slow down the incoming damage on this game make it like Tera where you only get hit if you are bad.

But the fact that only 89 guilds have downed the first raid boss is a good thing! It means there are indeed long term goals in this game. A lot of people complain that games like WoW have become too instant gratification and easy (not sure I agree with them entirely on that point) and get bored with the offered endgame. Well, WS is one that is not easy to finish in its entirety.

 

OP and the one straight after it are really great. I personally love the fact that not everything is handed on a silver platter to players straight away and that you have to be on your toes in order to survive. Yes, it is frustrating to do combat if you have the slightest hint of lag because getting hit has consequences, but imho it should be that way. One large beef I have with WoW and many other games these days is that it is too easy to tank. There was a time when groups had to work together to complete goals and that was the way to progress but all of that got nerfed pretty much in a standard fashion in the MMO industry. I would like to have one themepark MMO where the devs don't nerf it. I was happiest in groups during Vanilla, TBC, and then in the difficult heroic Cata phases of WoW and of course in the oldschool MMORPGs where you had to have good group dynamics. Just so much funner than facerolling all the time.

There seems to be a huge decline in population in all realms simply because if you don't have the guild to run Silver dungeons, and progress to having 20 people raid ready there literally is nothing to do. As an esper the current comp for raid group is 1 dps esper and then maybe 2 esper heals, I can't find a decent guild as there is only 1 on our server actually raiding even then they barely scraped 20 together to get there. So most of the population sits in town twiddling thumbs. There does seem to be a bit of a disconnect and im debating if i should just come back in a few months when more content and class balancing is put in.

Just my opinion, saying Wildstar's dungeons are not 'casual' friendly is absolutely correct.

The dungeon bosses are very complex and contain a large amount of mechanics. The fights themselves are not difficult once you've learned the mechanics. It simply comes down to execution and almost everyone can hit a memorized sequence of keys when given enough practice.

The problem is just that, that it takes practice or in this particular case, it takes multiple wipes to learn all the mechanics or it takes 15 minutes researching the wiki and watching a YouTube video.

The game requires a large time investment in order to be successful that is the very definition of not being 'casual' friendly.

It's pretty shocking to me how fast the hype died down for Wildstar.

I mean look at how praised and well reviewed it was by MMORPG - and hardly anyone is even talking about it here anymore.

Also I looked at reddit - it's half the traffic it had a couple of weeks ago.

 

Not sure if this has anything to do with difficulty - but it sure seems to be lacking staying power.

Maybe those people who would normally post a lot of hate threads are still playing wildstar.

It's one possibility, or maybe the retention rate wasn't very good.

Ok, this must differ with different people. I heal fine. Im casual. I pug. Maybe im just lucky and get into parties that know how to simply step out of Big red bright telegraphs. I mean sure it was a little harder at 20 but as I move towards supposingly harder adventures and dungeons, it got easier. Maybe people realize to gtfo of the telegraphs. Heck some dps dont even need heals as if they dodged evvvverything. oh and really everyone should have a heal skill to migitate a bit if they really suxxors at movement.

I think I speak for many players out there when I say it is really nice  sometimes just log into your favorite MMO and just do a few pug dungeons at times. Currently in Wildstar pugging is not possible at all because the level of coordination dungeons require. 

I'm all for hard content that requires guilds or friends to complete but I just don't understand why a modern MMO doesn't have any pug friendly content or at least a easier version of dungeons.  I play games to have fun and like I said I love interacting with guildies and other friends I play with. But there are times when they are not around or I'm just feeling anti social and being able to just pug a group can be really a nice option.  

 

Personally I think all the small group content should have a easy and a hardmode so as to make both casual and hardcore players happy.  Honestly the MMO market has shifted a lot since Carbine starting working on this game. If they don't adjust things soon this game is going to die quickly like the above posters are saying the interest in the game has dropped quite a bit.

What annoys me the most in WildStar is that every single mob in-game has better run speed than me unless im sprinting. The other thing is that the devs went the lazy road and as a result I get falcon punched from a 50m range. "Because he can have a healer with him"  *dull face* 

Telegraphs however are cool yes. The mobs that doesn't stun lock me (mind you I have no stability type skills) are pretty fun to fight IMO

That's an important thing to be missing, reviews and marketing only go so far, if people aren't talking about something it means it's not going to grow, that's a major aspect of WOW's continued growth. AS with EVE's. Eventually media coverage will drastically die down, it usually doesn't take that long for such to happen. That's when word of mouth becomes the most important aspect of growth.

I have personally never seen a forum for a AAA as dead as this one here, at least this close to it's release. It is quite odd.

still playing, having the most fun i've had in a MMO in years and not even at that point where i dont want to login because i cant be bothered anymore...

stepped into 20 man raids last week with my guild, already have X-89 down and working on kuralak. The difficulty is great an refreshing.. as a Esper Healer MS, i'm having a blast, i also have a second 50 Spell Slinger DPS almost attuned to be able to raid too. It's not overly hard, it takes time to learn the encounters, know when to stun and know when to move.

i think it's more of a case of the people who were hyped before are playing now not commenting on the game in forums, i still see great server population on Pago NA at peak times!

Honestly Carbine has said from the start Dungeons / Raids are for the hardcore and that top 1% basically, they have said in several live streams that it's meant to be hard and not everyone is meant to be able to complete it and thats how they designed the game and how they want it to be. I may be biased because i put the time and effort in to get there, but i think it's fair enough they have a vision for their game, they shouldnt have to pander to people and make it easier because "everyone" cant complete it. Maybe they're not worried about not having millions of subscribers or maybe as patches go on and the game gets better and people see the content is still hard and not getting dumbed down it'll encourage more of the hardcore players to get in and start playing maybe not who knows... regardless the game is fine how it is, i'm honestly sorry though that the end game doesnt cater to what you want... but i personally dont want it changed.

That's probably true of those enjoying the game. I doubt the game has a 100% retention rate on the "hyped" though.

It's probably more a factor of people not really carrying about the IP enough to launch crusades for or against it. Which is both good and bad, good that it won't receive an army of people tearing it down. Yet bad in that: for an IP to grow, it needs people to care about it. Otherwise it just becomes an unknown name on a shelf or on a digital download page.

Which is both good and bad, good that it won't receive an army of people tearing it down. Yet bad in that: for an IP to grow, it needs people to care about it. Otherwise it just becomes an unknown name on a shelf or on a digital download page.

oh thats 100% true, i know a few RL friends who stopped playing and a bunch of people from guild who also quit, that being said we still have over 200 members in guild and recieve 10 - 15 new apps a week, so i mean the game is far from dead but it definitely does not have a 100% retention rate, which is fine... it might carve out a nice niche for itself... or it might do like WoW and take a couple of years to build a solid base.... or it might even go free to play and people will come back / be more interested.

Only time will tell :)
