I think OP ment the Reuters interview a couple days ago, but I don't see the "back on the radar" part in those lines - maybe it's just me :)  Kicinski only said CP 2077 will be their next big project, but it's too soon to even talk about it, since the following two years will be Witcher.

So, OP even if they start to work on CP in 2018, I don't think there will be a released game in this decade :) but yep, it's back on the radar at least

Normally that goes like this:

  1. Go to game site
  2. Create an account
  3. Download game
  4. ~Half an hour or so later: I am around a fantasy world killing monsters! :-)
This week I tried 3 games (YES THREE! -- the 3rd was DDO, also with @^&$#! Happy Cloud).
 
I haven't made it to step 4 yet.

Lately, with clients getting bigger and bigger, point 4 has an even smaller chance every year :)

LotRO's (and also DDO's) client has a friendly size of about 20 Gb (friendly, compared to GTA's 65 Gb, or even TOR's 30 Gb ), your mistake was, as Torval mentioned above, is sitting onto the Happy Cloud...

Originally posted by Smashix

But my OP is still appropriate. If there are known issues (for years) with these installers, why are they the default installers?

It wasn't your fault obviously, and it was said numerous times to Turbine by the players too (that HappyCloud is worthless and does more harm than good). it's not the default installer, just the top one on the page... When you see the button "Play Instantly" on the top, it seems a more obvious pick than the "Download" button below. It's a trap, sadly... Turbine wanted to offer a choice what a few other games (for example Rift) have, but since the client is not built that way, they went with this half-a**ed HappyCloud solution.

If you have some time on the weekend, give it an another go, just this time with the client download :)

"So, now that it’s official… will you be coming back to Nexus?"

I stick to what I wrote under the previous column (when it wasn't official yet ), I'll definitely go back to check the model, and probably visit back occasionally, from time to time - but I can't see WS among my main games, or one that I play more than a couple weeks in a row.

Don't get me wrong, WS is a cool game, love the style and the humour, the Paths are pretty unique, and the housing is great. Simply just don't like the rest of it... too grindy, and I don't really care about the endgame either.

Anyways, the model so far (based on the faq and the articles) seems very friendly. Hope the Loyalty rewards will be following Rift's footsteps rather than Ncsoft's earlier f2p CoH, CoH's rewards were meh :) (but of course that was a whole different era of f2p). What's in the matrix is between the two (AH slots, crafting boosts, wake here cd, etc.)

 

So yep, I'll go back for the switch, but not sooner. Won't sub throughout the summer, even if the Caretaker would be cool, it doesn't worth 4 months of a sub :)

Quick test, in pointy-eared land :) http://s23.postimg.org/yw8krr361/quicktest.jpg

That's the default High settings, I used to use it on concerts because on max there used to be some stutters when dozens of people in their fancy suits dancing around - and I don't like when the music stutter.

There are 2 more notches above that in the graphics setting, and this default one is easily running on any gear with a dedicated vga card. I honestly don't know from where you get the eq2 idea :)

even Landmark (which is not eq anymore luckily) is only better with the character, but not with the landscape...

 

edit: but if you prefer an even "sharper" look, you can use SweetFX too - I like the original better, but there are plenty of folks into the sweet-ened look https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?537729-LOTRO-SweetFX-and-you-A-tale-of-pretty-sunsets-and-lush-foliage/page11

and to put it in a (somewhat) fun contrast, a thread from the same day as the OP :)  https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?569257-To-the-Graphic-Design-Devs-Thank-you!

wow and eq2? Seriously? :) https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?561221-A-Scenic-Middle-Earth/page13

Maybe the specs of your Win3 would be interesting if shared, the lowest gear I've seen LotRO on was a budget notebook without an onboard vga, so used the built-in HD (had a low-profile i3 cpu) and even that could run LotRO on low-med settings...

As Aglaranna wrote above, the high-res client, maxxed out, the game looks really great.

I keep reading the same BS about bar room brawling, what this is the feature everyone wants? Enable PvP in bars?

What else is missing in the game, an assortment of funny hats?

Don't sweat about it, seems some scars are running deep and leave a permanent wound in souls :)

(a.k.a trolling. When you'll be around longer, you'll get used to it   Some post into every AoC thread the bar brawl, there's an another who starts every year a thread at around the anniversary with "x+1 years and this crap game is still not cancelled" or such, etc. etc. Take it as free amusement, it's always a good laugh to read them.)

This just about sums it up

Risitas is always awesome, but this one... I laughed so hard it hurts

even if I like FC, there's so much great lines :) poor guy redirected to Lego, or that screenshot with the guild and they have the helmet (seriously, what was their plan posting it on the forum?), or the lame excuse that it's not anniversary event, just accidentally launched with the anniversary (I wrote about it on the other thread as well)

Watched 3 times already, it's maybe the best Risitas so far. Sent the link around the AoC buddies

Server merges mentioning left and right... while technically there won't be any server merges, only character transfers. And even those conditions aren't revealed yet, though Frelorn said a detailed FAQ will be released soon, when they'll finish the new and improved transfer tool.

 

What is stated so far, since the first letter of Vyv until this day:

some servers will be closed while they're relocating the game onto the new gear, in the new datacenters. Which ones, how many servers, is n/a yet. It will be decided based on the population numbers.

There will be free character transfers offered. For that they will make a new transfer tool (since the current character transfer is limited). Transfer will be open to everyone, not only for escapees from the closing servers. But destination can't be on the closing servers (so no option for relocating characters on low-populated servers thus save it from closing).

For Torvaldr's "all characters from two servers moving into one" :  there will be a max. character slot increase from the current 18, but no word yet about the price or the options. (I doubt it will be free...)

Reizla, securing character names: so far no info about the transfer's handling the name collisions. Current transfer has the simplest way, always the arriving character lose its name, and get a -1 behind his/her name plus gets a rename token. Of course veterans on low populated servers run a lengthy thread already, complaining about their 6-8 years old names. I'd say you can try to secure your names, but it's maybe a waste of time. Either the upgraded tool will have some solution, or they will leave the current way - but then you're late already, players are creating name-holder alts all around their favourite servers during the last 3-4 months :)

  1. In SW:TOR I started an Agent...
  2. In LotRO...  Really friendly global chat.
  3. In TSW... Monsters are 0  challenge so far and more like place holder zombies. My two first investigation missions took... hours... but they were very rewarding without looking up the answer.

1. Agent has one of the best storyline among classes, nice pick.

2. LotRO Really friendly global chat. told ya

3. That's because of the latest change, when they lowered the mob difficulty for the "base" area (Solomon, Egypt and Trans), so players could focus onto the story and the missions more. The dungeons are still tough, and even in the open a few bosses, or a larger swarm / wrong pull are still able to defeat you, especially on the later zones :)

Investigation missions without looking a walkthrough, that's maybe the best part of TSW. If you play that way, you'll have great fun during the game, some of those missions are really challenging. A hint, you'll get 1200 bonus points from the box (after you complete 30 missions), unless you really want some cosmetics to the character I'd suggest to buy Issue #9 from those points. Tokyo access is free, but you can't play the missions if you don't have Issue #9 and the story is great there.

Have fun in the games! :)

The stores (both the in-game and the web) were a bit clunky, so a revamp is nice. The client-based transfer tool sounds really promising. The rest was already mentioned, but it's good to hear that the plans are still on track :)

However, Bingo Boffin episodic adventure? Interesting... by the sound of it, I think it will be fun. I'm curious about the level and quest pack requirements, if it's available to everyone then the new players at the course will love it fer sure

Well, that was pretty disappointing... not even the paid part, or the (rightful, imo) rage from the players, but more like the communication and the whole package.

FC, if you want to add a paid extra content, that's fine. This one is pretty overpriced imo, especially for some re-used old content, and I don't even want to compare it to the TSW Issues or Sidestories which are better and cheaper (not to mention the stipend there is 6x more than in AoC, so subscribers can easily buy those extra content from their subscription). Heck, if you want to make this overpriced purchase mandatory for subscribers as well, that's fine too, even if you said earlier you won't do such thing and Turan was the last one.

But.

Then just face it and tell it so. This whole "here's the anniversary, and our team wants to make it a memorable one!" (well, that's a success, I'm pretty sure this will be a memorable one... lol) "The upcoming anniversary is a great opportunity to make a new area accessible.  We want to include something more along the lines of an expanded, permanent version of recent Halloween or anniversary events.... We're proud to introduce new areas for you to explore"  indicates an anniversary event like Halloween, and in the letter there's nothing, not the slightest hint about FC points or the store. Just after a couple days later putting it into the store for the price of a full expansion, a very sad and unfortunate move.

And to be honest, the excuse after the sh.tstorm was not even unfortunate, it was straight out pathetic. "we never said it's a free anniversary event, it's an additional paid content which is by mere accident launching at the same time as the anniversary" - seriously?

(edit: but if that was a serious excuse, I just saved the dev letter for rubbing it under their noses later, like earlier with Joel's "we never add lockboxes" post )

edit2: still like you guys, but this was a very lame move. And also it is overpriced. The CE version is a joke.

Originally posted by Mewpewpew

But i bought the game in 2008 for quite some money is there any benefit added to my account cause i bought the game? Or did they just say sorry we are F2P now and that you bought it before is your waste.

Well, not saying that because that'd be rude, but pretty much that's the case :)

The game is f2p since years now, so currently the only "boon" you'll get from bought the game at launch, is that you can play with your old characters. Plus, if you had any extra items like a nice mammoth for example (from preorder, giveaway, etc.), you still have those.

Beyond that, you'll have the same gameplay as anyone signing up today. In AoC's model there's no "ex-player" or "ex-subscriber" bracket like other f2p games have, there's a free package for anyone, and there are the subscriber "boons".

I agree, Laurelin rocks :) but OP is from the States based on the sig, and Landroval is the US server. And Landroval has Weatherstock, which is an amazing event.

But, since in LotRO the character slots are per server, and not total, nothing stops OP to roll a few characters on both servers...

Plus that's the thing. Both LoTRO and TOR allow you to create x characters / server. This means that you can create as much characters as you have allowed(let's say 3) multiplied by a number of servers.

I think TOR limits the character slots per account and not per server... true, I wasn't in-game since Revan arrived, but I doubt they changed that. If you can have 6 characters because you're Preferred, that means 6 character total. While in LotRO if you can have 5 characters from being an ex-subscriber, that means you can have 150 characters total (5 on each of the 30 servers). Any altoholic's wet dream :) Though they're planning to close a few servers this year sadly...

Sadly no mention of the crafting revamp in this letter...

Thanks Po_gg. I guess I kinda prefer tab targeting in MMOs and a crosshair in shooters, that's why I was curious. Cool that they have both. A pretty big download that TSW. 

Originally posted by Gorwe

You're looking for either SWTOR or TSW. AoC could fit too.

Will check out SWTOR too. Thanks.

Yep, it's cool that both are in-game, and of course at the video it was still in progress, the actual implementation is not that clunky :) you can switch between the two modes with a simple key press any time.

TSW is at around 46-47 Gb (though I have tons of screenshots in it so maybe just 45), TOR's client is less than 30 Gb. It's a nice candidate too, except the community has more youngsters - I'm not saying toxic, but sometimes it's better to simply switch off the chat :)

Also, I don't know if it's still frequent, but turn down ninja invites, back in the days that was a common usage for ganking (on PvE servers you only can attack pvp-flagged players, and grouping could flag you if the group leader was on pvp...). When I last played there wasn't any, so maybe it's fixed.

 

edit: when you're in TSW, type /chat join Sanctuary in the chat window, that's a user channel created for helping new players, if you have any questions or need help just drop it there, you can find at least a couple players on that channel any time.

Originally posted by TheUndeparted

I've seen some videos of TSW at some point and wondering is it "tab" based targeting? Not that this is a deal breaker or matters, it just popped into my mind.

It has both. Default is tab-target, but even that case you need positioning and watch for the facing (plenty of cone AoE skills in the repertoire).

The other option is the shooter mode, it can be useful if you're a ranged player or kiting a lot. That way you have a crosshair on the screen and you target with the mouse.

 

edit: mmorpg.com had a dev video when it was added to the game, you can check it at https://youtu.be/TzS03uQmkuI?t=5m54s

... but I'll definitely second TSW's community as a whole. Granted I also play on Arcadia, so maybe it's just the RP community, ...

Agree, just edited out for the answer's sake: nope, that's not just the RP community :) 

TSW has single server tech, so the nice, civilised chat and in-game behaviour, and the helpful folks everywhere are the entire community, not just Arcadia.

It's a great bunch overall, even if you see the occasional dude in Agartha dancing in his underpants :)

(edit: maybe I lean over to LotRO only because I know those fellows much longer, TSW is only 3 years old)

I think, with those parameters you'd love TSW's roleplay community. One of the best storylines, very rich lore, modern (present days) setting, and a great community - I still favors LotRO as the best community out there, but TSW's is a close second.

Lotro Laurelin server the only official rp server supported by the devs. Landroval is the unofficial rp server which is OK but not in the same league as Laurelin.

edit: a slight additional correction, Laurelin server the only official english rp server supported by the devs since there's Belegaer and Estel too for germans and for frenchies.
