Wow, that trailer is really awesome.

The combat looks good, both space and personal. I hope the game isn't too focused on just the combat. It would be cool if there were a lot of non-combat activities like MegaTraveller, SWG, and the like so it doesn't turn into a very pretty pvp gankfest. It would make the universe feel a lot more alive to have people doing things other than just discharging high energy weapons.

Some have expressed their fear that this game will be "Sims in Space" with NOT enough fighting and action. Just one more example that no matter what design choices CIG takes, not everyone will be happy as people expect often vastly different things from this game.

You WILL have more things to do than fighting, especially on the exploration, racing and high level economic side. There is no SWG level of crafting planned at the moment, alas. I look forward to very good NPC AI however.

Have fun

I don't feel like I'm one more example of anything but someone who thought the trailer was awesome and hope the game ends up being interesting and fun.

The trailer only showed combat and a lot of it. What other conclusion could I draw from that trailer? I never said I would be displeased with a combat focused sim. My point is that games like MegaTraveller and SWG had so many other aspects to it that it gave their universes a very fleshed out feeling. I hope this game offers that sort of experience. What they WILL offer will be seen once they launch.

I understand the concern the OP has about posting anything but soft and safe comments so to not upset the masses. I have had temp. bans on these forums because people complained and all it amounted to was I upset the wrong person with a post about their favorite game. When I challenged the Moderator to read my posts and find a reason to ban me they always ended up lifting the ban (doubt that would happen with SotA forums... team is bent on one direction and doesn't consider player feedback unless it supports that vision).

Fact is people like to complain and most the time they report you as a "Troll" when they have no clue what true "Trolling" is and just got bent over someone expressing negatively about their game or ignorant comment. What I suggest is doing what you are doing and tone it down a bit on that forum, obviously what your expressing is not having a positive impact on their forums.

I agree with you and since it is a temporary ban i will be back as you say abit softer.

Lets see if developers can take softer critic.

Don't do it. Just let it go. You've said your piece and now the community and developers are sending you a message saying they don't want to hear any more of your critique. That's just it. You don't have to keep harping on it. When you've said your bit accept that they may not want to use your feedback or take your suggestion and either come to terms with that and enjoy the game for what it is, or drop the game and move on to another one.

They don't have to follow any sort of process,procedure, or even be fair about it. They can ban you for any reason at all, and from the way you've presented yourself in this forum in this thread as well as others, I can understand why they banned you.

Not saying I agree with them, but it is there forums and their rules so I respect their decision. I stay away from official forums because of their heavy handed moderation, perhaps you will do the same.

Aye, that seem to be a accurate reason behind developers behaviour.

Sad to see they only want the yes sayers.

See you still miss his entire point. It's about "yes men" or fanbois. It's about wanting community members that can get along with the rest of the community even when they don't see eye to eye. You don't seem to have developed that skill yet. You are needlessly confrontational, judgemental, personally critical, and feel entitled to push your opinion and agenda. At some point you should just let it go.

Rift or Tera?

The games don't feel anything alike and that's not taking into account the combat. If you only take into account the combat then it's action versus tab-focused rng style. It depends on what I feel like playing, but overall I think Tera has a lot of fun to offer.

Rift Positives: 

- Interesting and versatile class build system

- Great dungeon finder and fun dungeons

- Raiding: if you're into raiding this would be the game I would play. I'm not, but they do have good raids

- Chronicles: these are solo and duo instances that can be challenging and very fun.

- Some quest chains have interesting story and lore behind them.

Rift Negatives:

- Trion: Right now Trion is on my pooper list. I've gone off Rift and Defiance a while due to how heavily and aggressively I feel like they're monetizing. They also favor a portion of the raiding community and have bad community management.

- Crafting: It's virtually useless outside of a few select items. It's also an insane plat sink.

- Boring AA system

- Quest mechanics are very generic

- Zones often have similar designs behind them - this is where I think people get the bland generic criticism

- General Chat: Global is sometimes abysmal. There are attention mongers. The same is true in Tera.

Tera Positives:

- Combat: This has some of the most fun combat along with Neverwinter. The healing and support mechanics are different and interesting.

- Interesting class build mechanics. Classes are nowhere near as versatile as RIft, but they build mechanics are interesting. You can affect how your class plays and feels in combat.

- Interesting crafting. Well, way more interesting than Rift and most mmos anyway.

- BAMs and mob farming: BAMs are challenging.

- EnMasse: This is still one of my favorite publishers. Their monetization is there, but not rudely aggressive. They seem to really try and make a fun game for the community.

- Elin: This can be a positive or negative depending, but I love see all the Elin RPers and RP players in general is pretty cool. The game definitely has a community of its own.

- PvP: I don't do it, but from what I've taken the players who like it in the game have praise for it.

Tera Negatives:

- Quests are pretty boring and generic. This is definitely the weakest part of the game. There are some fun quest chains though, but mostly it's very forgettable.

- General Chat: Sometimes chat is just horrible, especially in the lowbie areas. There are attention mongers. No different from RIft really.

- Zones are very linear both literally and figuratively. This is somewhat true in Rift, but Rift offers a little more freed in their zones.

 

Try both and see for yourself.

Wow, that trailer is really awesome.

The combat looks good, both space and personal. I hope the game isn't too focused on just the combat. It would be cool if there were a lot of non-combat activities like MegaTraveller, SWG, and the like so it doesn't turn into a very pretty pvp gankfest.

Forums very often resemble some country with dictatorship, because the people in charge are free to make whatever rules they please.

I don't even bother putting criticism on the secret world forums for example, because so far I've received 2 half year bans for posts that didn't personally attack anybody, they were just more honest and blunt than most people's feedback. Most companies are lagging a 100 years behind on real world rights and freedom.

They purposefully put vague rules like "baiting/trolling" "questioning moderation", "reposting moderated material" (even though i completely removed the part that caused the post to be removed in the first place) and "to discuss funcom's position (wtf is that even supposed to mean), send your feedback to support.funcom.com" or whatever, so that if they really want to ban you, they can always find a reason to. Apparently discussing what a pvp developer who got fired, did wrong, is discussing funcom's position, and any posts on that topic will be removed until the posters stop posting or until they get enough warnings and eventually get banned.

Blunt is a gamer codeword for "total douchebag". Being abrasive and excessively confrontational doesn't make a point more valid. After a while a developer doesn't want to hear someone rage and insult them.

My bet is this thread probably won't end well. The OP will likely be outraged to find out that bringing outside forum drama here is usually frowned upon.

The OP is completely justified to bring forth this discussion simply because of the fact that CENSORSHIP prevents him from doing so through the official channels.

You may disagree with the OP but the fact remains that the SotA folks do not take well to differing opinions.

Actually he's not justified at all. There is no inalienable right to post anything here. I didn't make the rules. I don't care if the thread stays open or if it gets locked and the OP gets banned. I'm just pointing out that I see these nearly always get locked with the reasoning they have nothing to do with an actual productive game discussion and all about arguing senselessly over whether someone is justified in being a douche. See even now we're not actually discussing whether the game is good or bad or some mechanic works well, but whether the OP has some self-entitled right to post whatever he wants however he feels like voicing it.

The paranoid concern is silly. Most every app has access to your identity and information. I wouldn't give my phone number out willy nilly but I would to anyone I would provide my email address to.

I think validation through SMS and having an account tied to a phone is a good idea.

What else is going on around here, exactly, that is more substantive or important? I guess I could go screw with the hype meter and make Project Gorgon NUMBER ONE OF ALL TIME. oh, wait...

How would I know? I'm not a moderator. PM Mike B or Amana and ask them that question. Some of you people really don't get it.

I'm looking through B@DAragon's posts (and I'm going under the assumption that it is the same person as this OP - could be wrong but this OP and B@D Aragon's posts feel very similiar, besides specific words being used) and though there is valid opinion there (whether it's right or wrong) they also seem to be aggressive and dissimissive.

B@DAragon also happens to be banned from that forum....

The irony is that I mostly agree with his arguments about, especially, the weird-ass combat card system - that just looks like change for the sake of change that improves on nothing... and he makes some good points about different servers with different PVP rulesets...

But insulting the devs and then coming here and pretending he did nothing wrong? That's a different story

He made a thread here about the card system. The problem is he didn't compare it to the skill cooldown system that is the other combat option. He made a bunch of baseless assumptions to support his opinion and just off harping on the same point over and over again. That makes his opinion pretty useless to me.

I want to know how the deck system compares to the locked skill system. I've used a deck system in Wizards101 and it was pretty neat, but I don't think it's how I would want to play an mmo. So any discussion about the deck system in the game doesn't mean much unless it incorporates the hybrid mode and the fully locked mode.

Getting two laptops is actually good advice if you don't need to have your gaming in a single unit. You can also look at some refurbs on the Apple site and get a better deal than a new one sometimes.

Both ASUS and Lenovo have some nice laptops with good discreet cards for $1000 - $1400.

Newegg: Lenovo Y70 (17" screen) for $1099: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834318071

Newegg: ASUS ROG G551 (15" screen) for $1099: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834232122&ignorebbr=1

Newegg: ASUS ROG G750 (17" screen and GTX-870M) for $1299: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834232276&ignorebbr=1

Newegg: ASUS ROG G751 (17" screen GTX-970M) for $1499: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834232202&ignorebbr=1

You can get some of those models much cheaper by sacrificing the high end graphics cards in them for one less powerful like this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834232195&ignorebbr=1 which is $950.

You can get a cheaper deal on some of the better models by buying and open box or refurb model. I like to buy things new and so I normally don't look at those, but if you're just looking for a second system only for gaming it might be something to consider. Quizzical and Ridelynn would know better about that than I would. I just thought I would toss out a couple of ideas if you went with 2 systems.

edit: I was assuming you would need the gaming rig to be a laptop too, but if not then those two could recommend desktop hardware that would save you a lot on the laptops and likely get you much more power for the money.

When I was made aware of this vote I made a thread on the TSW forums. A few days later, when TSW made it to the third round one of our community manager put up an announcement on the same forum. In regard to our "campaign" I think that is the extent of it.

It's a fairly simple thing to check the IP of any given forum poster so I would assume that if anyone has made multiple accounts the moderators and/or technical staff of this forum would be able to contain such abuse fairly easily. If there has been any foul play I am sure that I speak for the entire TSW community when I say that we do not accept that. I am confident that the moderators and technical staff on these forums are competent and in full control so that there is no allowance for cheating or other shenanigans.

You don't have anything to prove to anyone. The people questioning new members are just mad their game isn't winning. There is a thread like this on the LotRO forums too.

Welcome to all the new TSW posters. I hope a few will stick around a while.

Yet another one post poster.  How many does that make this now?  One wonders if this is the work of the same person or two. Is it multiple people trying to get additional votes for their favorite game/s.

You know this is a pretty ignorant thing to post questioning a single post new account. Game communities post these little events on their forums. People create accounts just for this. Why do you think mmorpg makes these contests? It's a bit of fun for the community and it helps generate some traffic and awareness for the site, not to mention a bit of advert revenue.

That isn't a sock puppet account. It's pretty easy to see a sock puppet account. They're usually new, or possibly older but with a lower post count with strong opinions and good working knowledge of the community members and their preferences.

That guy you quoted isn't a sock puppet. Now the butthurt poster who questioned all the new TSW players. That's a sock puppet. It's a new account worried about other new accounts being created because his game is losing. Real new community members don't have that sort of awareness of what's going on around here.

You will want the Macbook Pro with dual Iris Pro / Nvidia 750M graphics. It's the 15" Macbook with the Retina display.

15" Display

Intel Core i7

Iris Pro / Nvidia 750M w/ 2GB DDR5

16GB memory

512GB integrated flash storage

$2400

That is really your only gaming choice for a new Macbook Pro. My friend uses one and it games fine. It's not a beefy gaming rig, but he can play Battlefield and other games through Steam. He has a small Windows partition on it that he dual boots with. Running through the VM isn't an option.

If you go with a Mac desktop you have some other choices.

 

edit: spelling and grammar are my foes

There is an interesting piece written by Ken Levine here on medium.com: https://medium.com/matter/the-road-goes-ever-on-105f33453e55

He talks about why he likes Shadows of Mordor so much as a gamer and designer. He feels like the game has made a small breakthrough in open narrative the way Elder Scrolls and GTA III did with open world.

The point being that play as you want is still here in GW2, but the narrative in most every game is not, including GW2. So if you want to work through the narrative story in GW2 you have to take the path laid out by the designers. According to Levine the same is true in Bioshock, Borderlands, or even Dragon Age with its branching options. Even though he didn't mention mmos the same would be true for Guild Wars, ESO, LotRO, SWTOR, and GW2. If any of the key players dies or is altered the narrative breaks. You can't really veer off the narrative track or the narrative doesn't work. So that's just saying GW2 isn't alone in the entire genre in that respect.

However, if you want to do the narrative, or you want to farm mats and craft, or play WvW, or structured, or just run around farming mobs, hearts, and doing side quests, you can. You can still do all that just like before. The options to play how you like are still open. The OP is trying to stir the pot with some bait, but it's just rhetoric and not reality.

At least in subscription mmo's when they give you a costume piece its yours, forever.

It's yours forever until you stop paying your monthly rental fee.

I hate temp cosmetics for several reason which aren't worth detailing. So I never buy them. However, lots of people like them and if they want to buy them that is their business.

If I buy cosmetics in a cash shop I want them to be permanent. That's one thing I like about the cash shop in Tera, there is an option for both. In fact they usually offer different timers (3 day, 7 day, 1 month, permanent character, permanent account).

Is there an option to buy the cosmetic permanently in AA? If not instead of complaining about them selling a temp cosmetic ask them to sell a permanent version. Problem solved.

I have a ton of games to play already. I'm more looking forward to what I'm going to do in my existing mmos than I am a new game. I have LotRO, TSW, Neverwinter, STO, Guild Wars, Guild Wars 2, Firefall, EQ2, Tera, Eldevin, and a few more. I don't really have room for another new mmo. I don't know how I'm going to squeeze EQN into that list. That doesn't even cover some really awesome games in my Steam library.

I am excited and anticipating EQ:N. I hope SoE has an early beta access ready by summer next year. I think once they work out some of the kinks in Landmark then EQN development will accelerate. This is probably the only game on the list I'll make room for.

Other than that some of the games sound interesting, but I'm not really anticipating them, and the pvp games don't interest me at all. The Division sounds cool, but if it's a pvp only game that doesn't have a Steam version then I won't be playing it either.

voxel literally means made up of cubes.  If by more complex you mean the cubes go down to be as small as pixels, then yes maybe voxels are the future... but otherwise no.

Maybe you just mean customizable buildable worlds?  Don't need voxels for that, it's just that voxels make it easier to program.

Voxel is a cubic measurement. It's a way of calculating "pixels" in 3D. Currently voxel technology does calculate using cubes mostly for reasons of performance and standards. Even though voxels are calculated as cubes that doesn't mean what they contain needs to be cubic shaped and have sharp corners. It means that whatever the size of the voxel it contains that one bit of information. That bit could be textured. It's quite interesting and the math behind it is really cool.

I've become a fan of voxel games. Been playing Planet Explorer.

I'll be keeping my eye on this one.

I love Planet Explorers. It looks good, but it has great modeling and building tools. Which I think is very important for this type of game. This allows for all sorts of world themes and styles.

Even though they're incredibly late and don't update their KS page anymore, which I sort of ding them for, they also are still putting a huge effort into the game. On top of that everyone who supported the game in KS got their account transferred over to Steam if they wanted it, so I'm pretty happy with this one. Using Steam and the Steam Community, as a collaboration platform has been great.

It bothers me when people say "stop throwing your money away on X" don't tell me how to spend my money. If it's not worth it to you, then wait. That's the beauty of early access. People can help fund the game ahead of time and you can still wait for official launch.

That's usually called a win/win but some seem to take offense to it.

I agree. I've been blessed and have the money to spend on entertainment if I want to. I also find it annoying when someone else tells me how to spend my paycheck. If I want to spend $25 for access to play around with a game in development I'm going to do so. It's my entertainment time and money.

I know that games don't always turn out how I like or how the developer intends when they ask for funding. But it's my choice if I want to take that risk, not anyone else. It's my disappointment I have to deal with if a project goes south and it's my satisfaction when it works. By the way, it's not the money I spent that troubles or discourages me when a project doesn't work. It's the potential not realized that I find disappointing.
