I really don't excite easily... but given all that's been released about this game, I'm honestly so enchanted. My one fear is that it actually *cannot possibly* live up to what it's said it can do.

* A world about 1000x bigger than Skyrim. 

* A world with emergent AI like what original UO was going to have... and actually work.

* A world you can just live in and make your own content - build anything, destroy almost anything. See an orc in the woods, know it's always for a reason. Follow the orc back to its base? Kill him and wait for his clan to come looking for him? Let him pass and slip through orc lands undetected to get to another destination.

* 40+ classes you can be + the ability to pick and choose from each class to completely make your own.

Honestly, if they deliver this to my computer, as they've promised... my only question will be: "Just tell me how much money you want me to pay for this, or would it be easier if I just give you my bank account number and you can withdraw whatever you like." 

Definately should have ignored it.

While some gamers are obviously in need of medication, it's not a good idea to release a product that is in absolute shambles and then make fun of the people yelling about it... especially when so many paid good money. 

I want to like the concept but the last thing we need is another Space Sandbox. I mean, what's their pitch: "You see those NPCs that are in EVE that play a completely minimal role. GONE in ours." 

Oh China...

First, you sell us gold. Now you sell us rides.

I'm sorry - I thought this was a game? If it's not fun within the first 5 minutes, why the hell are you playing it? 

If it takes until level 30 (which is conceivably 30 hours or more play time for someone who isn't leveling optimally) for this game to become what it was marketed to be, then that's a catastrophic failure. 

Heck, knowing what I know, I'm not even going to *try* the game... because I can't actually do something for 20-30 hours that I find boring. 

Great. So you guys can't spare more than 5 minutes playing a game to give it a real shot but you can spend 1 billion hours on these forums posting about a game which you spent 5 minutes playing. It's sad, it really is.

I don't know how long it takes for you to type 4 sentences, but I tend to do it in just shy 1 billion hours.

And you're right - it is sad. When a game is so bad, I'd rather be typing sentences on some interweb forum than playing it.

What an abortion of a game. 

It wasn't power leveling ....it took less then 3 hours to get 3 cottages and a farm ...be more fun if folks that complained  had a clue about the game . As usual folks that play a game play ...folks that play the forums lose

And how, in any way, is that better? People who start the game late (read: at release) can't even get a house. 

I've learned all I needed to learn about this game by reading the forums... I have 110% faith in that. I'd say F2P in 6 months, but since it's already there... I'll just say dead in a year.

I was so fortunate to get a 7 day free trial from a kind soul here: it saved me from sinking any money in this game. I'm a patient guy - in WoW, I'll farm a single piece of transmog for hours and hours. I couldn't even make it to level 8 in this game: it was just that boring. 

 

The questing is the same as Vanilla WoW, the combat system is like Tera, only everything comes in this immersion shattering telegraph that my 95-year-old Grandma could react to in time... or not and lose like 10% of your life.

 

And to top it all off, they want a subscription fee for it. 

 

Honestly, this game was doomed from the start. 

 

 
 

you couldn't get to lvl 8 in 7 daaaaaays ???? !!!! e7m i can't stop laughing at this phrase, sound like not just fishy but a smelly fishy and combat is like tera ???!!!! ok you didn't play the game..thanks and please continue your tab targetting wow combat which it seems to you hard enough, i'm sure you can't take wildstar's combat because it way above your lvl.

To clarify: I played until level 8, then was too bored to continue. And yes, the combat is like Tera's: free from tab targeting. Not a difficult concept to grasp if you try - Wildstar didn't break new ground here either. In all truth, Tera executed it better. 

And yes, I'm sure the game "being above my level" is the reason why, after 3 months, it's merging down to a paltry 4 servers. Clearly, this game was ahead of its time.... *eye roll*.

If Sony delivers a system like this without screwing it up, I will literally give them my bank account number and say: "Take what you want for it."

Is it just me, or does the maliciousness of that tweet carry a lot of grey area? It almost seems like it was like: "We heard this might be going down - balls in your court, world."

Could a defense be: "We're plugged into a lot of information and heard there was a chance this might be going down. We'll DDOS Sony all day and night, but we do draw the line at blowing up hundreds of innocent men, women and children and felt we had to say something, in case it was true."

When I read the title, the only thing I could think about was the Spacecore from Portal 2.

Glad EvE - Valkyre is looking interesting though. I'm somewhat intrigued.

Tell me about a better MMO than WoW, and I'll play it. I've been looking for a better one for about 6 years now. 

Everquest 2 wasn't it. 

Warhammer wasn't it.

Age of Conan wasn't it.

Lord of the Rings Online, while being one of the only other MMO where I bothered to max level a character, wasn't it.

Aion wasn't it.  

Rift wasn't it.

TERA wasn't it. 

SWTOR, while being one of the only other MMO where I bothered to max level a character, wasn't it.

I didn't even bother buying TESO and Wildstar - I've gotten good at telling bad MMOs at a distance. Sure enough, reviews backed me up.

Everquest Next, I'm buying the second I can... HOPING that the makers of the old Everquest that I loved so much can *finally* put out a better product than WoW. 

For me, it has positively nothing to do with Sunk Cost fallacy and everything to do with no MMO to date has been able to do what WoW has: grab my attention and keep it for years. 

 

 

 

Same! I've subbed to EQ, AoC, SWTOR, Rift, LoTRO, UO, and I've even played some of them for years at a time. Actually, I'll probably even sub to SWTOR again, since I enjoy playing it with my kids. WoW is still king of the castle though. It's simply better. 

Not only do we have the same tastes, we're on the same WoW Realm.  Hail, Fellow Dreamer. :)

Why have people suddenly got such a hard on for hating on eve?

A lot of the hate comes from the EvE community's reputation - whether it's fairly earned or not. I've heard this game is Mos Eisley. "EvE Online - you'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."

 Maybe it's not everyone, but a few too many giving yall a very bad name.

While that's a good reason to dislike a game, the main reason I'm never going to play is the sheer inability to catch-up to players who've been playing for years. 

In another words: as fun as the prospect of being canon fodder for months (or YEARS if I don't specialize) within the worst gaming community in MMO history sounds... I think I'll pass. 

And another one who thinks that you need 104578345793487 skill points to do fun stuff. But hey, it's your loss.

Rather than unsupported, hanging statements... why don't you enlighten me as to all these amazing opportunities readily accessible to newbies in the EvE game that it's my loss I don't get to partake in?

I don't believe I've ever used the term 'entitled' to mean what the author characterizes it as.

To me, the following are examples of an "entitled attitude".

1. 'I have a busy life, a job and a family and I don't have the time I used to to play these games, so it's not fair that others with more time can get farther along than me. I should be able to progress faster so I can catch up with them". That's someone believing their personal life circumstances somehow entitle them to a faster/easier ride than others.

 

People with lives, families, careers and such have always played MMOs, even as far back as UO and EQ1. They had limited time, too. Yet, they played and enjoyed themselves. Why? Because they set their expectations more realistically to the time they had to play. They didn't expect the developers to change the game around to cater to them. They weren't self-entitled. 

 

2. "I just started playing the game a year after it came out. It's not fair that people who've played longer than me are farther along and are doing things I can't do right now. They should speed the game up so I can catch up and do the same content they're doing."  -- That's someone reacting on a perceived "disadvantage" against people who've been playing longer. They feel that starting after everyone else entitles them to a faster/easier ride to the end, simply because they don't feel they should have to go through what everyone else did to get there. They often characterize themselves as a victim of some horribly unfair treatment... and occasionally pre-emptively lash out at anyone who would disagree.

 

3. An entitled person is someone who wants to play a game, clearly has an interest in it, but feels they shouldn't have to pay for it, because "it's not worth the money" to them. They like the game. They want to play the game... they just feel they're entitled and shouldn't have to pay for it. In those cases, they want something for nothing, that's it.

 

There are other examples, but those are 3 common ones.

As for the article, again, I don't know if I would ever characterize what they're discussing as "entitlement". That's imply wanting games to be F2P. 

 

I will also say, their characterization of F2P becoming popular because "it's better for the players!" is horribly naive. It's giving developers and, more specifically, publishers far more credit than they deserve.

 

The F2P model has been around for a long time in the East. It was even present in a few MMOs that were available here in West before Turbine hopped on board and made it "okay" in the West. Certainly, developers and publishers were well aware of this. If it was so clearly the "better" approach, then why did it take them so long to adapt it?

 

I'll tell you why...

 

because F2P/Cash Shops are little more than sanctioned RMT. It's the same concept as eBaying or buying money from some website... activities developers used to actively fight and prohibit. The difference now? They're the ones raking in the money, not some 3rd party. So of course now, they argue it as being the "best thing for the players". Illegal RMT and Cash Shops are basically the same thing; the same concept. The only difference is who's cashing in. Meanwhile, gullible gamers with no critical thinking skills just lap up the PR about it being "a better revenue model for the players!" as "fact".

To be 100% fair - that argument does hold weight in games like EvE that are so innately hardcore PvP, but don't have a character progress cap. Do you really expect gamers to play with one arm tied behind their back for their entire career because they joined 7 years later?

You can also flip that around to make anyone wanting the opposite seem entitled.

"I've been playing this game for 5 years longer than you. I've put in the time. Who cares if I keyboard turn and you're more skilled?  I'm entitled to beat you - play as long as I have if you want to have a chance vs. me."

Funny - I totally thought my response was going to be: "I think you're a year too early."

The original contest said the winner would be free, not that it would be the only one. I would hope that the team would develop the winner first to give it the spotlight. To think they would make only one of them and unbalance the mount numbers means you do not know blizzard well. For a long time now balance is all they do. Unique between horde and alliance rarely exists.

They said the Horde mount will appear in both Alliance and Horde collections, just only be ridable while on a Horde character. The mount numbers wouldn't be unbalanced.
