1) If you played EVE and liked it, you will "probably" like Perpetuum and should try it.

2) If you played EVE and hated it, then you will hate Perpetuum even more.

3) If you researched EVE, read the reviews and decided to not try EVE then the same decision applies Perpetuum.

In a NUTSHELL, if you take EVE and replace the ships with Mechs you have Perpetuum.

OMG, this game is BORING it makes EVE seem like a non stop action game of unbridled intensity.

Uninstalling.

Because even WoW haters like me, know that 95% of the MMOs are trash...just look at some of the one on this website!

And even the AAA MMOs do such stupid things that drive their subscribers away - AoC with Bori, WAR with the latest patch, the EQ and EQ2 Grindfest of same old same old, widespread cheating in APB (rip), LOTRO's redundancy and repetivieness, etc etc etc.

WoW is still the most polished MMO out there, backed by the strongest game company (Blizzard/Activision), they set the trend for game features all the others imitate, despite many other MMO universes existing for decades in novel form or table top game form, making WoW the young kid on the block from a universe stand point.

I cannot tell you how many times I wished Blizzard made MMOs for the Warhammer, Age of Conan, LOTRO and Warhammer 40K universes which are my faves.

My hate for Wow is for its ingame community which turned "trade chat" into daycare for 5 year olds, the 2 frost emblems and out per day syndrome, and having to grind dungeons over and over and over again SUCKS.

My strategy for Cataclysim is to just enjoy questing with my friends, doing Battlegrounds, avoiding the ARENA, DUNGEON grinds, turning off "Trade Chat" and RAIDs unless Blizz has improved these things. Yeah U know thats 75% of the game...but I am only subbing for 1 month..if its still the same old crap I am outta there.

I am overcome with a level of excitement not seen since I first read the label on the back of a bottle of "white out"...

Come on....its bad enough 95% of the trash MMOs are cutsie tutsie anime style games, but WoW trying to ride the fine line between that overdone genre and quality MMO pets is scary.

ENOUGH WITH THE BABY GAMES!

Nothing says it better than a PayPal only game. In all due respect to the Indie Devs for this game....

If you want me to take your game seriously and risk money trying it, then accept credit and debit cards!

Otherwise, since this game was unheard of until recently, with no reviews or previews by PC Gamer, GameSpot, etc, my fear is that it will be like 95% of the other games on this website...that being trash.

Just started playing this past weekend.

THE GOOD:

Excellent Graphics

Generous Rewards

Friendly Community

Lots of "convience tools"

Many quests

Have not experienced any bugs

 

THE BAD:

Music is one step above "Elevator Music" at a doctors office in the 1970's

Some anime style "cutsie tootsie" stuff

Although the quests are more rewarding now, and EXP is faster, its still a GRIND, albiet a fun GRIND.

 

THE UGLY:

Repetitive kind of like EQ1, except without the "whack a mole" type grind.

 

Overall Aion is still a fun game, and I am hoping it gets better as I level up.

Well, I am eating crow...I have made fun of this game since its release, but finally gave it a try after a frustrating day in another MMO.

I had pondered blowing $39 just to try it for months and finally bought the game.

WOW...I really really enjoy it!

The UI is very intuitive, graphis r amazing, its fun and rewarding.

I spent alot of time customizing my new character as well.

I can understand how some people like myself were possible turned off by yet another "cutsie tootsie" MMO aka like some Asian MMOs are.

But I was surprised in how Aion bridges the gap between western and Eastern style.

A very happy medium for both.

I love all the Warhammer Novels and its universe that started way back in the 1980's as a table top game.

I love Warhammer Online...BUT....the developers, producer, and publisher are hurting the game.

Lets review:

1) WoW has a system to boot AFK'rs, WAR does not.

We are now at the point where 75% of "Order" players on the Badlands Server stand around the Warcamp leeching Renown Points off the poor souls actually fighting Destruction and getting pwned because Destro outnumbers order in both quantity and Renown Levels.

2) WARs website is horrible.

The news section has not been updated since September and the forums are part of EA Biowares website and horrible.

3) Marketing is terrible and new RvR packs are horrible.

Alot of people bought the new RvR packs...yet, you no longer see anyone with the pets that came with it, cuz its meaningless.

You can buy one Rank level, which is controversial ,i.e. buy your levels...and the supposed accelerated Renown is not accelerated unless you consider a snail being faster than flowing ketchup.

4) Skaven Horde is a joke.

Seriously...a few rats spawning in the mist of your RvR? What a waste of programming time.

And the Skaven cannot be created like your other characters...you pass thru a portal and change into one.

A playable race you can level would have been better.

5) Loot bags are gone!

After working hard to take a keep for a few hours you get no loot!

6) Eternal City SC is a nightmare for Order on Badlands.

Order will win once out of 25 tries....it gets old losing 500 points to 0-50.

WHY OH WHY could Warhammer Online have been developed by anyone other than "Mythic"?

I do give them credit for TRYING...and yes I played tons of hours and enjoyed myself the past 2 weeks, but its OLD now.

7) BE CAREFUL WHAT SERVER YOU ROLL ON

Check and see what servers are balanced or dominated by Order or Destro/

If you end up on the side thats being dominated, for example Order on Badlands you will be faced with being outnumbered by Destro 4-1 and most of them are Renown 80.

I can only find the digital edition. Cannot find the physical copy.

You ar e 100% correct!

I left APB because of hackers and refuse to play BlackOps because of those low lifes as well.

In fact, when I read the comments on many MMOs on this site, if I see there is widespread hacking I avoid the MMO as well.

LOTRO, WAR, AOC, LOTRO, WAR, AOC.

AOC soon to be abandoned 100%.

Done with WoW forever.

Comnitus, is that picture of the World Eaters?

Is that Angron?

The big RP guilds have already left the game, although some of these features are interesting, they treat sympthoms and not causes, i.e. non RP'rs on the RP server griefing and a broken criminal and murder system.

As long as level 80s gank lowbies the game is broken.

Anyone who has read the Horus Heresy or is into Warhammer 40K knows that factions is a complex issue.

Yes, there are several basic races...Humans (Space Marines, etc.) of the Empire, Orks, Eldar.

Now throw in the factions...Chaos and non Chaos...notice I did not call it order.

Next, realize at any given moment due to the influence of Chaos, Space Marine chapters post Horus Heresy are split in half, one for Chaos and one for The Empire and at war with each other.

Although the Eldar have tried to make peace with certain Space Marine chapters by attempting to alert them to the Horus Heresy, the Space Marine chapter as in this example the Patriarch Fulgrim and his chapter got angry when the Elder tried to point this out and attacked them.

ALso, throw in the fact that the Empire despises Aliens and Xenos...

Thus, The Empire...Humans will be one faction, Chaos the other...which can contain almost any race, and lastly non chaos aliens such as Eldar and Orks.

IMHO the best way to handle factions is the way Dawn of War II did, i.e. Chaos versus non-Chaos, with racial hatred within the non-Chaos faction, i.e. The Human Empire hates Orks and Eldar and vice versa.

But with some aliens siding with Chaos just as the Human Space Marine chapters have done, when  they left the empire as traitor legions.

Very complicated......any Warhammer 40K experts care to weigh in?

They need to do ALOT of work on this game. If they half ass the graphics / combat system people are going to stay away because they already have a negative few from the current WAR mmo. Even though its made by a different developer, having the name warhammer will make people remember how much @55 this one sucked. If Dark Millennium has the tab to target then press 1 - 2 -3 combat and cartoon network graphics, might as well label it dead before it even launches.

WRONG!

Anyone who knows anything about Warhammer 40K, knows that there is a difference between Warhammer (Fantasy) and Warhammer 40K (SciFi)! From the dumbest idiot to the hard core Warhammer 40K fan.

With the overwhelming popularity of paperbacks for both universes since the late 1980's, only someone who doesnt care or is too dense to make the distinction would think they are the same game or influenced by each other based on the MMO WAR.

And no one wants those types of people to play anyway, so it will be no great loss if they stay away.

It will be a gain.

The original OP needs to upgrade his PC, AoC works just fine for 99% of us.

The problem with AoC is that the "Tyranny" server (PvP), known since day as the "A$$hat Server" where parents would jump on and cuss out players because their precious little baby didnt get loot, got killed in PvP or was not dominating in each and every way...all started transferring to "Cimmeria" Server (PvP RP).

Guilds used to fight like they hated each other to the core, yet in RL many were friends, and the roleplaying just added flavor to the PvP and Sieges.

Thus, Cimmeria server went from a server of intense PvP between guilds, with RP thrown in whenever people felt the urge to a server of JERKS.

Now, with the Tyranny players and guild coming over to Cimmeria, they brought with them the predatory attitudes, infantile and immature behavior, that gave Tyranny server its infamous reputation. The player community went to hell....gone were the helpful players, gone was the great community...in its place was a large player segment who's only vocabulary consisted of saying "your Mom" in response to everything, calling people racist names, engaging in potty talk because mommy and daddy dont allow it anywhere else...while us mature adults rolled our eyes at jokes and statements as old and over used as Fonzie in a Happy Days episode.

Zones were locked out by griefing guilds, lowbies arriving from Tortage ganked by level players 20 to 40 levels higher than them...the criminal and murder system did not even faze them. Mini games were ruined as these guilds flooded the mini games with pre-made groups, all while making sure they had one or two guildies in the PUG to just stand there and sabotage the opposing PUG.

Funcom screwed up with Bori and somehow feels banging rocks is worth paying $15 a month for.

RP is dead on the RP server, and most of the large RP guilds have left for LOTRO.

I would rather play WoW and pay to get my 2 Frost emblems a day and grind the same dungeons over and over again woth fail PUGS and guilds while reading mindless drones in Trade Chat than ever play in Age of Conan again.

To quote a friend of mine, when it came time for our Age of Conan guild to leave for either LOTRO or EQ2....

"If I ever play a game by Sony/Verant again, I will tear my own eyes out and eat them"...

Our entire guild went to LOTRO!

Nuff said.

OLD MMORPGS (1998-2004):

1) Great player communities

2) Grindfests

3) Static dungeons

4) Camping

5) Player priority was fun

6) Guilds were a pleasure

7) Trade chat was for trade

 

NEW MMORPGs (2005-2010):

1) Poor player communites (immature, aggreassive, hostile, griefing, hard to please):

2) Less grindy

3) Instanced dungeons

4) Nto much camping

5) Player priority is to pwn by any means neccessary, at anyones expense.

6) Guilds one step sort of organized crime - for example:

Tthere are guilds in Age of Conan that will not let you loot until you are in the guild for a longer amount of time and force you to yield items to other guildies who have been in longer, and guilds that take over zones ganking lowbies and locking out non-guildies.

Aimbot guilds in APB (RIP).

7) Trade chat used by infantile a$$hats that make your IQ go down with every word you read.

 

Funny how a game like EQ for those that played it during its early days went very quickly from something that you held in awe, to something you dreaded. Despite the good times, it was only because we didnt know any better back then, and the only alternative was Ultima with its ancient graphics and WoW, which was an unfinished EQ clone back then.

As time went by most players realized after 6 months to a year of play , that the game really was not that fun. However, with a group of friends, even something as grindy and boring of what EQ really was, once the novelty wore off, still was somewhat fun.

The end came for me, when Sony/Verant began censoring the forums. You could not say one negative thing about EQ without censorship. The game stagnated...and if not for all the time people  invested into characters, in what was essentially a total waste fo time, people would have left even sooner.

It was as if one day you woke up and realized what EQ really was...a novelty,,,,a total grindfest, campfest, that got you addicted to pay for what really was a meaningless and boring game. If not for the players, the game would not have lasted as long as it did.

Even though WoW was rough around the edges when it first came out, that game progressed into something more, with good and bad...but EQ just sat their not progressing at all, and went extinct like the dinosaur it had become.

Unfortunatelty, too many MMORPGs still take part of both EQs and especially WoWs formulas for the worse, when the suits run with the same old crap only because WoW does it. Yeah 11 million subscribors canr be wrong as Blizzard always says, but they certainly are easily impresssed.

I long for the day, when a mold breaking MMORPG comes out with features that are innovative and not the same old crap of taking our money for cheap thrills and 2 Frost Emblems a day.

When I played it several years ago upon initial release, I had a blast as part of the Black Knights guild...a British Armor guild.

I recall the day we had 50 tanks all lined up on the road and ready to go for our planned offensive.

Not sure what has transpired since then.
