Best TP MMORPG out there right now & with a bright future ahead imho.

They are constantly adding to the game with solide regular patchs.

They planned ahead this time & they know where they 're going.

Expansions are going to be HUGE and over the top in classic FF style! ^^

I know I'm being a bit of a fanboi here, but why shouldn't I be a fan of what SE is doing/has done?

They have shown by their actions that they have more honor than most other corp. They:

 -Rebuilt the game.

 - Let people play for free for almost a year.

 - Gave Legacy status (if you paid for 3 month of 1.0 after if went back to a small sub. For 3 months, it was less than 25$) Which give fan a sub at 9.99$ now and forever + some other small unique cosmetic stuff.

 - Have a sub lower than the standard at 12.99$. That's all that you'll need.

 - Have no cash shop.

*It's important that you give feedback on this to SE. Tell them that you want the items to remain IN the game. Personally,I cancelled my sub and left a month go by before coming back when they started talking about the "If the players want it" trying to test the water. Please give your feedback to SE now if you care about the future of the game without a cash shop.*

I was about to continue with a long list of all the things FFXIV has to offer/done right, but there's no reason too... The reason above are enough when you know that the game is AAA.

The beauty of it though, is that, the way the game is designed, makes you go through everything and you can't actually skip much of the high lvl progression to end game. Everytime they launch of patch that adds content, they gradually make the previous content easier by applying buffs. The top end game stuff is always challenging for the hardcore that wants that kind of experience.

In short, if you haven't give it a spin yet, its a good investment for a few bucks. Give it a try.

 

The issue here, as in all other MMORPG PVP games, is lack of appropriate criminal punishment. ( lack of understanding the basis of playing an RPG game really)

As long as they insiste on rewarding sociopathic behavior & punishing the upstanding Citizen in these games, they will never ever work out.

The past repeated attempts proves it eloquently. No need to argue about it... seriously, get a clue.

Freedom is good, anarchy isn't. Pretty simple concepts, no?

Let me throw in my 2 copper here on this AA pirating scenario. They should be hunted down by a draconian npc police force in all civilized area of the game. There should be jail time, a steep money penalty to be paid & loss/restriction of freedom afterward for quite some time(again in civilized area).

The most important part here is the jail time. It needs to be on a timer that doesn't budge unless the player is in game playing a mind numming unbottable jail minigame. Like forced labor if you will.

After playing that boring mini game for 12-18-24h, they'll think twice about being unwelcomed psychos.

You say these people wont play the game then... ALL RIGHT! Mission accomplish. Only the none sickos will remain. You know the ones who truely want a challenge & understand the risk vs reward of living as a criminal.

Thats my 2 copper.

/cheer

My main issue with this is that people playing on older systems with low graphics settings will not be able to see any of this. My 5 year old PC really struggles with newer games, so I was forced to play with all gfx on Low or completely turned off. This made the game a complete blurr with very few fx appearing on screen. (Have a new gaming pc delivered tomorrow) People who cannot afford an updated system would be penalized here.

 

I still feel that nothing more than a simple dev tweak to the ui, adding a few buff/debuff icons is needed. Add ons are not needed at all.

Thats strange... cuz my PC is older than that & ran the game flawlessly at MAX setting with everything turned on (except some minor things). I was impressed to say the least, but its true. ( PC is about 7 y.o.+)

My spec are:

Q6600 OC @ 3.2GHz

8 gigs of DDR2 ram

nvidia 460 GTX ( the only part I upgraded from when I bought it)

Can I say I call BS on your claims? Maybe not, but I would advise you to look on your side, cuz the problem isn't the game.

I have a feeling you did not read the whole post. No one is blaming the game for anything lag-wise. My current gfx card/system configuration sucks and does not load new areas in any game w out 10 second screen locks. If you don't believe me, not sure why you even care. My whole point was that the lag is on my side; you are creating a non existing argument.

 

That being said, I would not recommend to anyone to use a 7+ year old PC to participate in 100 v 100 pvp battles. Glad you updated your old GFX card.

Yeah sorry, I kinda misread it. My bad. :s

But, seriously, the game is the most optimized MMO I've seen so far. It runs smoothe as hell on minimal hardware( granted, I haven't done anything pass the starter island) & thats the point I wanted to make.

If some people can't be bothered to have a minimal gaming PC... well, screw them I guess.

Gratz on your new toy! I'm obviously looking to upgrade too... maybe next year. :)

I hope what they do is supply in world indicators of poisons, diseases, etc.  For instance, a green aura around your character when they are poisoned.  Maybe some glowing wings when they are buffed, etc.  Whatever.  In world indicators would be better than interface indicators.

 

I think they are all meant to have them although I think some might be bugged and some are missing at the moment. For example, the Light Armor active skill, Annulment and its morphs put a semi-transparent white cage around you, the DK skill Draconic Armor puts spines on your back, etc.

 

Even some procs have a visual effect like with the Sorcerer's Crystal Fragment, the morph of Crystal Shard that gives it a % chance to become instant cast and cost half magicka after you use any other magic ability, which puts a purple glow around your hands when it procs.

 

I also would like to see them all be visual, in-world indicators.

 

Do that for all buffs/debuffs and add a combat log and I'd be 100% happy.

Edit: As for the thread subject... Its a damn good thing. I want to play the game as intended & feel immersed in it. Not game the game with add ons. ty

Only 5!? You must be kidding... Yeah, sorry, but I'll go with more than that. here it goes:

Ca$h $hop - Thats just plain bad all around for hobbiist gamer.

Instancing - Thats a no go for a genre that calls itself MAISSIVELY MULTIPLAYER.

Phasing - Make the whole world/zone change & then change everything else around that, not the other way around. The world change THEN quests, mobs, etc. change accordinly. Everyone see the same thing!

Mob on leash - Cut 'em loose like it was before & let the careless die or learn to play.

Hand holding - News flash, the average age of gamers isn't 8 y.o. Stop designing games for retards!

Quest hub leveling - This is just bland & uninspired game developpement & needs to go away asap.

Quest marker - Let people explore ffs. There's other way to show there's a quest here... & no all quest don't have to be pointed out loud & clear to you. FIND THEM!

Lobby inspired queue - Make something hybrid, more social that just a Q. 

No roleplay fluff - Its a RPG after all... I mean come on!

Anything cross realm - Goes totally against community building.

Not seamless - Small issue, I don't really mind zones, but seamless is better for immersion.

Ca$h to gold - P2W = NO THANKS.

End game focus - Think about the journey man. The journey is the game not the destination.

Unregulated economy - I'm sorry but I'm sick of botters/cheaters/exploiters controlling the market & jacking price up so that you almost have no choice but to go without or buy gold. STOP RIGHT THERE! No, snap out of it, a game economy isn't like the real world, it wont regulate itself... periode.( Not that this crap is working in the real world anyways, but thats another story best left untouched )

Game altering addons - I want to play the game not game the game... if that make sense.

Global chat - Small issue. As it can be deactivated or ignored. But I find the attention seeking tards very annoying.

RPG-lite - The core of the game is progression. Do it properly or don't call yourself an RPG. Its pretty simple...

Maps of everything - Let people explore, find things, developpe their ressource as they delve further & further into the game.

Lifeless world - Life is crucial for immersion. Day/night cycle, living NPC, weather, etc.

Cartoon Graphics - Personnal taste... I don't feel immersed playing as a cartoon in a cartoon world. To each their own though.

Limited skill bars - Options are never a bad thing. Limiting this is bad game design imho.

Fast leveling - This as to stop! It makes the whole game pointless as you out level everthing in a matter of hours. Ridiculously bad for an RPG. 

Gear treadmill - There's no need for this & old MMO are the proof of that. Diversifie! Rare gear shoud be rare & not necessarely all at high level.

Instant travel - Why make an MMO then?! Stupid is stupid. Totally counter productive.

Simplified dungeons - Lazy game developpement for lazy/casual tourist. There's other way around this.

No challenge / easy mode - Whats the point of a game where you can just faceroll the content all the way to epicness... None.

No housing - This goes without saying. An avatar in a virtual world needs a god damn virtual house to live in. /sigh

No dedicated  roles gameplay / Trinity - Zerg gameplay sucks balls in a PVE game.

Forced soloing / too much soloing - Its an MMO ffs. To those that say that you can always group, I say; In what world do you live? The content is already in faceroll mode, why would I make it even more pointless by grouping?! They rebute by saying; But you can skip to a higher level zone to fight tougher mobs. To that I say; Why would I buy a game to skip its content?! Thats retarded. No, I have a better solution... Make most of the damn game a challenge to begin with. Solo game are that way >>>. kkthxbye

No complexe fully fleshed out crafting - It needs to be a game on itself & hard to master with ways to contribute to the game at every level.

So, in other words, an MMORPG that IS an actual MMORPG and not another fraking instanced lobby arcade hack'n slash game.


All I have to say here, beside the fact that I agree with the OP 100%, is that every single poster here that tries to debunk what he said are the very problem the MMORPG genre is facing. They're lost & don't seem to even know it... Which is pathetic really. :s

 

Wow some people are really out of their mind.

News flash! 

A  scam != perks. >> Cutting something off to sell it separately has never & will never be a perk FFS.

Not that hard to figure out really. :s

No, no other SW games was ever advertized as much as this one by a long shot & on top of that, being free as to hook the suckers in their hamster Wheel.

It could have been an ok single player game with coop option though. But only if it was fully featuerd & sold for the box price only.

To each their own I guess.

 

Players...about 500k subs and around 1.7 million f2pers so it's a success for gamers yep. Investors....f2p alone brought in well over $100 million in revenue and they are currently profitable success for investors yep. Well thanks for stopping by and jumping on the hater wagon it's always fun to inform the ones on that wagon.

Being a SW fan & clicking on an ads a gamer it doesn't make. Just a cluless casual that doesn't know better.

Though, like I said, to each their own.

Being another simplistic hand holding casual trash is enough for me to say it isn't a gamers game, but a money grab.

Since gaming became mainstream, who would blame them. A fool & his money are soon parted... & god knows there is a lot of them in this new market.

The question was "What SWToR doing right?" Sorry you didn't like my answer.

Now, good day sir. Not going to argue with you any further, that would be pointless.

 

 

Oh I'm not arguing with you I'm educating you with facts from a video game.  You asked "doing right from whom, gamers or investors" I gave you facts that say it's doing right to both.  Sorry you don't like facts.  

Hey! I'm back... So why not indulge myself a bit more.

The only right answer to my question was "Investors" my friend, thats why it was rhetorical/not really a question.

Numbers doesn't make facts... You can make them say whatever suits your need.

I'll give facts:

- Millions eat at McDonalds even though its bad for them. Its known to be unhealthy, if not toxic. Why? Because the sheeple are easily influence by mass advertizing. Thats it. Eating there doesn't make them food enthusiast, just clueless fools wanting to be part of the herd. "There's adds everywhere, it must be good!" Thats the farthest their unused critical thinking braincells are able to go. These are the kind of people that you can sell less for more while making them say thank you for it.

- Advertizing/marketing (or the science of parting a fool from its money) is a HUGE multi billion industry working against the commun folk for the suits/investors. It spends hundreds of million in psychological studies & mass trending campaign to manipulate what people think, want & feel.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To answer to the title question:

In light of those facts ( Do you understand what facts are now?), the main thing that SWToR does right is mass advertizing the most popular IP on the planet, lining up the pockets of investor full of money they scamed out of clueless sheeple using what they learned from there million dollars psychological mind trick studies.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Very little as been made right for gamers there I'm afraid. Sorry.

You answered your own question... Now stop there or its going a ban for you.

You don't want to ask these kind of things around here.

edit: Oh yeah & I forgot. HYPE!!! Must have it.

Voting is based on opinion. However, one must be smart enough to see through all the lies told by politicians to see which one really fits their opinion of what is needed.

 

 

In this country (US) far too many people vote based off of the lies or fear created from scare campaigns then by actually reaching down in and looking at the truth and the real issues. That is essentially what the other poster is referencing and although snarky and sarcastic, the underlying point is valid. Too many people don't know how to look for real facts and just believe any random thing they hear at face value.


 

Oh, so you are a politician as well? Because you sound precisely like one - preaching, misleading, creating illusion of fear, pointing fingers.

Irony?


There is no need for any of that, election is a process of expression. People can express themselves, whether they want to make a research or want to vote based on their feeling, w/e they decide. It is their choice, their right.

 

Your first line also had no merit or basis to it. You randomly spewed that to try and attack and when you look at the post above it, it just reads absolutely silly. Nice work there and no, absolutely no irony there.

 

What you just described is pure irresponsibility. Voting without the facts and info is a terrible thing to do. You can also buy a car without any research at all. You have a right to do that, but it is irresponsible as there may be all kinds of problems and safety issues with it. With that you are risking yourself and a few other people on the road. With voting you are risking an entire town/state/ or nation. The "I don't want to learn, have the proper knowledge, or do any research, but damn it I want to vote to make myself feel good!!" crowd is one of the worst to exist.

 

You can ruin a nation and destroy entire classes of people by voting because of the emotion that some lie instilled in you. You are actually describing what is wrong with the modern world. Thanks for making it so clear to everyone else.

Speaking of research & fact, you should do some yourself. Voting is just a public show for the plebe. The ones puling the strings are one & the same for all parties.

Just wanted to put some reality in your life here. Now, go look it up.

/cheers

NEWS FLASH!  You may not be able to afford the large land plots as soon as the patch hits.  Depending on your play time and your FC size, you may never be able to afford the large land plots.  Set your sights on what is attainable and work towards it.  Not every FC is going to be able to get a large FC house on the beach. 

A medium sized plot on my server is 40 million gil which will come down to 20 in three months time. My FC has been saving for 2 months and we have about 7 million banked up, which I thought was pretty damn awesome, but it's not even close to enough. It's dumb to make what should be a casual feature such a massive grind, but hey if you're happy with it, good for you. 

Maybe the problem lies in your notion that it would be casual where nothing of the sort as ever been said? huh

Sorry, I assumed since the rest of the game is pretty casual that they wouldn't make housing a soul sucking gil grind. My bad. 

Have you completed BCoB? Are you an accomplished crafter? Are your jobs all fine tuned with all the best skills you can get from other classe? I bet not.

edit: The game just came out ffs. Have you seen all they added & changed in this patch or are  you just  interested on shoting it down because of the INTRODUCTION PRICE of housing isn't to your liking? Instant gratification much... Have to have it NAOW!

 

My FC has been working towards a housing fund for two months. I didn't expect to buy it with some gil we had on the side or something. And what does anything in the first part of your post have to do with the price of housing? I'm not shooting down the patch. I said earlier in this thread, that the patch looks awesome aside from housing and the CT restrictions. In any case, I'm not going to bother responding to you anymore as your view of me as a player has already been decided despite you knowing nothing about me. 

If your not shooting down the patch then fine, I'm sorry, my bad.

The 1st part of my post is in relation to you saying the game is pretty casual when I bet you haven't completed any of what I mentioned. Well did you? Didn't gave me an answer on that. You're avoid it eh? ok fair enough.

My point still stands though. You thought that you would have acces to FC housing on day one just because, well ummm, because you are entitled to it... right?

Wait & the price are going to come down or work hard for it. Not a hard concept to grasp...except for the casuals it seems.

Not to mention that SE is using this to balance the market/gil value & cathc the WORST rmt buyers, which is a damn good thing. Anyone that buys at these insane price ( yes they are insane ) is going to be investigated & ban if found guilty of using rmt funds. It's all good imho.

In my opinion, the art style is amazing. They use however, older graphical mechanics (looking at the screenshots). The thing is (if you like these graphics), it will still look this great 10 years from now. Games like Aion, LotRO or EverQuest really look dated after a couple of years.

Says the legion of clueless still stuck with this absurd notion coming from the 90's.

Whatever float your boat dude.

^ THIS! Nailed it.

HYPE!!!

Total disconnect from any form of critical thinking... or reality.

Really same old same old with cringe worthy graphics. I'll pass & so should you ihmo.

If you buy another one of these trash game just to try it, it sends the wrong message to the suits funding the genre.

Speak with your wallet or the genre will never get back on track. The hole is deeper than you think, don't wait for the insdustry to hit the bottom to act. Thank you.

Well they also laughed at the notion of buying a max level account,yet here we are.

I would say this stance changes at some point,we never really know what they are thinking behind closed doors,one man's word doesn't mean a lot,if others inside the team want it in,then it probably makes it in.

I would hardly say that for now it is Blizzard steering away from instant gratification as a no fly zone has nothing to do with gratification ,they are still a hand holding game and have a LOT of work to do to get away from that stigma.

I see Blizzard being a premier EASY,hand holding game right to the end of it's existence,the only changes i see for the future is when it goes f2p and starts selling all those EASY or easier options.

This^

Well said.
