Well it is not that I don't like it as such, I do welcome different types of combat systems. I think the reason I focused on that on Wildstar is because the combat system seems to be a large factor of appeal to a lot of people and how it is advertised, just like some other games have done in the past, take Age of Conan for example. Personally I don't mind the combat either way whether it is a more arcade style like Wildstar or tab targetting like on wow. I come from EQ and UO and have played tons and tons of mmo's over the years but never have I truly enjoyed an mmo's combat system over another to the point that it results in my favour towards that game. :)

I will say character control is extremely fluid and responsive in wow compared to anywhere else for sure.

Are you telling me that your eyes cant detected the difference in fuidity between 30fps and 60fps?

Exactly.  Thank you.  This guy gets it.

If I was you I would consider myself having performance problems.  I can play the game just fine and get a solid 30-45 FPS the problem is I should be easily hitting double that number with the graphical fidelity in this game.  There's no reason a game like ESO runs at a solid 60-80FPS even with 100 players on my screen and WS's engine chokes so hard.  The other joke is I can turn everything to Very Low and it hardly makes a difference performance wise compared to Very High or w/e it is.

The human eye (generally) can't perceive a difference past around 25-30 fps.  Hence why games like Halo 3 are locked at 30fps, and why movies are 24fps.  So... not sure what kind of eyes you are using or why you need it to have dramatically more FPS than a human can even see but... yeah...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frame_rate

 

First in case you don't know that data about the human eye is totally false so you may want to stop spreading misinformation and siting wikipedia as your point of reference.  For starters your eyeball is not a camera and doesn't see in Frames Per Second so.....

Moving on I have to guess it's been your misfortune to play on a toaster your whole life because if you play a game at 60FPS and 30FPS it's impossible to tell me you don't notice the difference.  It's easily noticable.  Now if you want to compare 60 FPS to 120FPS sure there's little if any difference unless you have a 120hz refresh rate on your monitor. It's cool if you don't mind 30 FPS but for me that's basically unplayable.  Especially when I'm playing a game that has the graphical quality of a cartoon.

As an experiment go play so DMC (the reboot on PS3) and then play it on PC. The difference due to FPS alone is staggering. 

 
 
 
 
 
 

The science is true. Anything above 30 fps is undetectable by the human eye.

What is the issue here is that on console the game IS locked at 30fps and won't go under it due to careful optimization.

On PC however, you can have 30 fps and perfect smooth gameplay.

The reality however is, that PC games, especially MMO's aren't exactly known to be well optimized and framerates fluctuate greatly, like when you suddenly enter an area With lots of assets (city hub) or suddenly have a lot of players enter you FOV.

So if you run at around 30 FPS and suddenly have the above happening, Your FPS will suddenly drop 10+ frames and that is causing the stutter, because you go below the 20 FPS.

The difference With running at 60 FPS is that your framerate will never drop below 30 FPS and thus you perceive a smoother gameplay without stuttering.

THAT is the difference! And nothing else.

*sigh* I'm glad they taught you in high school science class that this is true but it's not.  It's like an old wive's tale.  A quick google search will hopefully alleviate you of the misinformation.  I'm not new to gaming at 32 years old I know how frame rates and stuff work. A solid 60 FPS always looks significantly smoother and better than a solid 30FPS.  I don't have special eye balls either.  This is just a fact.  Your eyeball is not a camera.  It does not see FPS at all.  That is not a relevant comparison to say your eye can see X FPS because in fact it sees 0 FPS cause it's not seeing FPS at all. 

I gave you an example of a PS3 game locked at a steady 30FPS and when compared to the PC version at 60 FPS the PS3 version stutters all day long it's horrendous.  I can't really continue this conversation because you're operating on misinformation.  It's basically me trying to discuss the color of the sky with you while you insist that the sky doesn't even exist. 

Edit: Double checked with several MD's (I work in a hospital) yeah your eye only seeing 30 FPS is BS.

Anyone else played the newer mmo's like GW2, TERA, ESO and Wildstar?

 

I have played them but am actually seriously considering coming back to wow. I just wondered what some of your opinions are about these games, but in direct comparison to your experience with wow.

 

Recently...

I played ESO and left after about 3 weeks. I just couldn't bring myself to log in because I didn't enjoy the questing very much and having the pvp all in one area, while good in some respects feels lacking somehow to me. I can see why some would really enjoy the game though.

 

I am currently playing Wildstar and it certainly has some good aspects to it. I was very surprised by the amount of content at release and how much there is to do generally while leveling. The combat is quite fun although after playing through it, it is starting to feel a bit more like a gimmick rather than a combat system which is truly intuitive. It also currently feels a bit spammy in pvp, it feels like you have less of a true impact to me. A good game and quite surprising though as I was unsure about giving a go.

 

That said about the former games mentioned, wow is still a beast to be reckoned with. There is something that still draws me back, I am just unsure about taking the leap and if I should resub or not. The simplicity and the direct approach with regards to progression is quite appealing still. The Warcraft franchise is certainly one with a lot of charm. The combat is easy to do, but hard to truly master and each class is fairly unique. Very tempting to return and with a new expansion on the horizon, the temptation is a bit greater.

As far as I can tell the only thing you don't like about the newer crop of games is the combat system which has moved away from a passive hit Tab + Numbers and target dies.  That type of combat is what I find boring so I am glad to see it go.  Personally I am enjoying WS a great deal and I think content wise it's one of the best MMO launches in quite some time.  Even if WS didn't peak my interest WoW certainly has nothing on offer I haven't already done or seen 1000000000000000000x at least WS might be familiar but a different skin.

So I dig your thread because I had no intention of getting WS.  However, I picked it up on a whim and have been enjoying it since.  I have had some performance issues, some of the worst for any MMO launch in recent history for me, but nevertheless I plan to sub and hope to see optimization and improvements.

i got a 7 day trial from a friend, i thought id give it a proper go and still i do not like it at all

 

graphically it looks terrible, instanced housing is just why bother, combat is crappy and it was just a yawn fest hand held hub to hub theme park - appealing to some maybe but not to me

 

the stats of downloads will be hyped fairly significantly due to the 7 day trials

Yet another person who thinks the article is talking about game downloads. :/

Wrong, I know they are talking about addon downloads, I downloaded quite a lot in my trial and other people who had the trial also downloaded more that I know of, so my point still stands :)

Yeah the data provided here is pretty useless for drawing any conclusion with an ounce of substance.

Spent money on Runes of Magic when I hit level cap when it first came out.  Lesson well learned and I haven't spent a dime in a F2P to date sans 2 non-mmo's.  LoL - bought some skins champs but this isn't an MMO and Smite $30 gets you every single character from now to forever.

so basically its a large map with 3 bases. i will post the video from the stream that shows how big the map is later once its uploaded.

 

anyways here are the details:

 

 

*  frontlines, will be with lots of people. Also, the parameters are casual so anyone should be able to jump in and have fun.

 

*people to participate in a match…. 24x24x24= 72 total

 

*There is one base for each Grand Company. the name of the location ( map) = (Carteneau Plains)

* 30 minutes fights.

* if you die it , bases is where you respawn and you can’t get back in once you fall down.

* Huge map. there is PvP mounts.

* requirements to enter: Level 50. There is a new iLevel sync system. Morale is also irrelevent.

* Rewards are PvP wolf marks, PvP experience and the mount. You will also get Soldiery or other tomes (Myth). You can do frontlines as a replacement of dungeon runs.

* there are monsters,  Just be careful of the enemy sneaking up while you are fighting.

*  No limits on job entry. But you can change jobs at the outpost. You can figure out the best and then change as needed. You can fall also, so watch your steps.

*You don’t attack the bases. There are points for killing other teams but there are points on the map that are more important. There are these flags in the circle. Claim the points (6 total) and get points. ( very similar to GW2)

* The finder on this will change too. If not many are queuing, it may only bring in teams of 8 or 16.

 

 

Sounds neat. Even though I'm not playing I'm interested to see what they do with PvP in such a traditionally PvE-centric title.

For a majority of players, Wildstar has been the smoothest launch for an MMORPG in a very long time.  No gaming company can account for EVERY computer configuration and there is likely some kind of compatibility issue with your particular rig.

 

As for the 2.2 million ADD-ON downloads, and the people confusing that with game downloads, you just make me weep for the species.

 

For most players? You got that data where? Because most players in my experience think the game runs like crap. Anecdotal evidence is Anecdotal. My 267 steam games gw2 cube world eso dawn gate Lol strife infinite crisis smite all work with no issues but If one of 300 Games on my PC doesn't work it must be my PC Right? I have a 3.4ghz i7 8gb of ram and a 7950 there's no reason for the crap performance except for their programming.

And most players in my experience are having the former rather than the later experience.

Yes the game could use some optimization, but frankly when talking on MMO launches, needing some optimization as it's primary problem makes this game's launch the best in all of MMO history (pretty much)

I mean every other launch I can recall had a plethora of problems, cough ESO and it's zone roll backs every few hours unplayable first dungeons and horrible lag / desync issues.   Then you could look at WoW and it's horrible launch, or Aion's sitting hours to be in ANY server, same thing for SWG, lets check out DAoC, yep balls deep queues for days.

Wildstar had queues, on SOME servers, there was still never a queue for me on my server of choice, and many others, it's bugs are being rapidly addressed, and I've seen far less issues than any other game when it comes to 'launch pains'.

All of which is why the 'advanced users' are enjoying this game (the people who download mods are a small part of the gaming community). 

 

My only problem at ESO launch some quests I couldn't complete due to de-sync, log out, log back in, issue resolved. You mention Aion's launch the only issue was Queue times.  Here's Wildstar - Every time I select my character from selection it takes all day to show the loading bar, once the game loads it takes another day to show the UI and everything else (if I reload the game everything happens in seconds), about 50% of the time the game will crash here, I restart the game and log in and get in with no issues.  I get random timeouts/dc's from the server when my net is just fine (I'm streaming video at the same time without interruption).  Got a random blue screen the other day.  I have desync in WS and huge lag spikes as well. 

Better launches than WS in my experience: GW2, SWTOR, Defiance, Age of Wushu, Darkfall Unholy Wars (yeah I said it lol), TSW, FFXIV 2.0, Rift, Tera, DCUO, STO, Aion (the only launch problem was queues), I mean pretty much every game I've played since 2009 has had a better launch than this game.

Worth pointing out - I was subbed to ESO and cancelled my sub and subbed to WS so I am enjoying the game and am not on an ESO is better rampage.  Like I mentioned earlier my PC is on the high end, I have 300 games working just fine, and I'm no dummy when it comes to PC gaming but I appreciate your "advanced users" have no issues comment lulz since downloading an Add On or mod represents technical skill.

This game is literally defiance with a different skin. It's going to fail just the same
Game is really fun but the actual performance is atrocious.  I can't believe people bashed ESO for it's launch I have had 100x the problems with this game.  The game runs horribly.  CTD's, blue screens, UI not loading, d/c's from server, and the list goes on.  It's been the worst MMO launch for me in years.
 
Inb4 it must be my pc..... lulz

Take a look at the poll. Last time I checked more people want this style of game versus who don't. I know it's a very minute sample but still. Like I have mentioned before. I have no idea how big the market is. That's why I am seeing how big it would be based on these forums alone. It be nice if more people would vote.

 

If your assertions were true Pantheon's Kickstarter would have successfully funded.

Not saying the original poster is correct in his argument either, but you're using a logical fallacy to assert that his assertions are wrong.

I apologize if I worded my statement in such a way that it came across as such.  I was just in a hurry and attempting to be brief.  Yes it's true that Pantheon not funding is not in and of itself proof that the OP's assertion is entirely wrong.  Especially considering Brad McQuaid's involvement but I do think it is some evidence for the fact that the supposed market for this type of game is not as large as some forum posters would have you believe.  It's not like Pantheon even came any where near close to funding or had 100's of thousands of backers.

I've never heard an esports player ever claim they were an athlete.....  I hate to break it to you but they definitely count as sports as per the dictionary definition and the US government has determined LoL is a sport in order to award Visas to foreign players wishing to travel here to play in tournaments.
