The one thing I don't like is the fighting on horse bit, very poorly done.

I don't mind the actual gameplay of it too much, though for some classes TTK is ridiculous.  Some cases I just get off my horse and make them approach. 

The big problem for me, is it performs horribly.  Massive lag and rubber banding, poor response... mobs not appearing until you're right on top of them...

I figure it's probably their hardware, because in instances it plays fine.

Reading this just makes me more angry. It confirms everything I feared. It paints them as collectively clueless.

Of course they were clueless.  It was a brand spankin' new genre back when SWG was conceived.  Nothing but a small handful of successful MMO's with which to base realistic goals.

Having read this article, alot of the things I experienced in the game started making alot of sense.  All those wonderful little details and experiences in the game, the crazy awesome crafting system, slapped together with absurd rubber banding, lag, and imbalance... an unfinished game, somehow glued, bondo'd, and binder-twined together with our own imaginations.

I am glad the Dev admits the game was poorly made, when I played it seemed like a social gathering a large chat room so to speak, there were constant lag spikes, combat was clunky at best. what they did have was a great crafting system, and later a good space game, it is to bad they could not build on that


Personally anyone who thinks they could have done a better job with Jedi has a screw loose.  They were rather rare and that was the way it should be.  I think the team made the right choice about the Jedi design.  When they made Jedi accessible to anyone with NGE that basically destroyed the game.   The Jedi class lost all it's luster. 

You mean, like Raph said they could have?

And no, the jedi weren't rare.  It was long before the NGE that I couldn't stand near a major starport without hearing lightsabers opening and closing every 3 seconds.  They were all over the place.  I'm pretty sure we can take Raph's word on that, but I, at least, don't have to.

I thought his "crazy" idea would have been awesome.  I'm not a big fan of permadeath, but if you're gonna do it, that's how you do it.

Write like the wind, OP!

By that, I mean stop bitching about what the sitefolk are doing and show them something they can publish.  You might be surprised.

You guys missed the other 3 threads where all he did was talk down to me and bash everything I said.

If you're talking about "Opinions on this GPU" and the Asus R9 thread, I read those this morning before I made my first response to this thread.

In one case Quiz was making the point that you could buy a new piece of hardware @ Newegg for a similar price you were about to pay used.

Look at it in a different perspective:  He didn't even disagree with you.  He went bargain hunting for you and found you a great price on the unit you were asking about.

In the other case, you were buying stuff from Best Buy due to having a $50 gift card, and he was telling you to go with Newegg anyway, and gave examples as to why.  And he's right by any measure.  You can count on AT LEAST a 25% bang for the buck markup on any card Best Buy has compared to a place like Newegg.  And Newegg's return policies are better than Best Buys.  Yep, I said it.  Better.  Been a customer of both for over 10 years.

Take that 50 bucks and buy some CD's.

If Quiz just bounced into the thread and said, "That's a stupid idea, you're a moron. Peace out.", I'd agree with you.  But he disagreed with you, then went shopping for you.  And IMO, he was right every time.

Never coming to this part of the forum again because of Quizzical ruining every thread I post.

Given your crappy attitude on display here, it seems we owe Quiz a big thanks.

If that has changed or was never the case, I might consider checking the game out.

That's never been the case. There are many that complained that by PvP only, the advancement was too slow but PvE has always been the best way. 

Thanks for the schooling, folks!  Looks like I might have to scrounge me up $60, soon.

Those looking for CoH 2.0 got CoH 0.7b.  Double whammy for those of us who loved the Champions PnP game from which it  was based.

And then they pretty much abandoned it.  I'd like to think this is a sign that they actually want to do something to bring it up to date, in someway, at least.

In the end, when it comes to CoH vs. CO, I'll quote "Walk Hard":

"The wrong kid died!"

Cool movie :) (and Anchorman was whammy as well)

CO was better than CoH in Freeform and travel powers, imo. but was weaker in other areas. Still, I don't think it was 0.7b - at least for me, but true, I wasn't looking for CoH 2.0 :) I followed them after the split because of Marvel... sadly they've backed out of the deal due to their beancounters. Freeform is cool enough though.

Hopefully this announcement means that PWE will pull CO back from its abandonware status and maybe even allocate some resources to the devs... it's a fun game, worths to finally get some attention from its owner after these years.

Agreed, there.  Flight in particular was done much better, though I think DCUO does it even better.

Where they really failed in my book was in the lack of the enhancement system, or at least something that could take its place.  I loved having that much control over each of my powers.  Sure, you have the gear stats, but that's nowhere near the same.

I like the Champions universe, though sure, it'll never be Marvel.  I was looking forward to having my own character in the Marvel Universe, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.

I hope it gets attention.  If they could get it at least bring it to a quality level between STO and Neverwinter and start releasing quarterly content, I might start playing and buy some stuff.

Not sure what you're talking about at all. Nothing is locked behind PvP. You can get all the endgame gear, etc. without ever spending a minute in Cyrodiil.

Seems to me that at least at launch, PvP was the only way to do the VR levels.

the unforgivable, the one and only: Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

pretty much this.  It was supposed to be "WoW 2.0".  The press was saying it, posters here were saying it.

Real stuff people said:

"It's gonna knock WoW off its high horse". 

"If you think WAR is gonna have anything south of 10 million subs, you're smoking some serious WoW crack."

It got here, and reviewers STILL pretty much labeled it WoW 2.0, due to the public events and a few other things WoW didn't have at the time.

Reality set in about 3 months later.

They had me and then lost me when they locked high level advancement behind PvP.

MSI is good. Both my brothers run MSI. I gave Asrock a shot this time and its been a good board. ASUS, ASROCK,MSI, GIGABYTE all make good boards.

Give quizz a little time he might come up with a little better build for you.

I miss Abit.  Dunno what happened to them, but they saved me alot of money in the 90's.

If you can run whatever game(s) you're playing on a 10 year old PC with what you feel are acceptable frame rates, then you don't need a gaming PC.


sorry did i sounded rude? i was just stating that ive done just fine with intel brand, im not saying amd is crap.

I didn't think you did.  I also didn't think I said that the other system isn't good enough. 

My point is, they'll both be good enough, until they aren't, which will happen at about the same time.  At which point you'll be able to upgrade the processor and memory in the system I recommended for a big difference in performance, when parts that cost alot now, are alot cheaper later.  With the other system, you're gonna have to scrap it and start over.

Let's take memory, for example.  Upgrading will be cheaper with the Asrock board, as you have 2 more slots to use.  you could certainly get 16 gigs for the other board NOW and save some money down the line, though.  I'd recommend it.

In summary... his suggestion will be a little faster in real world use.  But in 2-3 years, both systems will need upgrading. 

With the other system, you'll have to gut everything and start over.

With mine, you'll be able to get the best processors the mobo can run(much faster than the ones I recommended to start) and memory cheap, and get a few more years out of it, for maybe $150-200 bucks.

Hope I don't sound like I'm picking on your friend; he recommended a solid build that would certainly make more sense than mine as a straight up budget desktop.  But I think you're probably gonna build either one of our recommendations and be a bit disappointed in the performance you get.  My build allows you to go alot further for less money, should you get some more dough.

On a budget machine, I wouldn't go Intel.  They're great; they've been the fastest first for a long long time, but the premium for that marginal speed difference, especially in their cheaper lines, just isn't worth it.

Secondly, I'd spend less money on the CPU, more money on the mobo:


The newer North and South bridges, along with the upgradability makes it a great choice.  64 gig memory capacity is rare, even these days.

This should do for a starter processor; others might have better suggestions.  Keep in mind that the mobo above will support much faster processors, in case you run into money in the future.



Doesn't have to be specifically this.  Anything 1333 +ddr3 with 240 pins will do fine.  Again, the mobo will run faster memory than this, and 64 gigs of it, should you come into some more money.

Still leaves you with $170 for a video card.


Edit:  Sorry, did I misread that bit about newegg?  Are you saying newegg isn't an option?  Disregard my suggestion if true, and I apologize.


Sounds like you also don't have a mobo?  If you do, you'll probably want to post the model.

If not, I hate to tell ya, but $400 will barely get you a regular rig, let alone a gaming rig.

Others might come along with something better, but this is best of what I saw for your budget:


AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz Six-Core CPU, ASUS 970 AM3+ MOBO, HyperX Fury Black 8GB Memory $229.99

Even here, you only get one memory stick(I'm surprised they're selling it like that), when you need 2 to go full DDR bus.  But at least the mobo gives you a few upgrade options down the road.

Whatever is left over, take and spend on your vid card.  There are acceptable, even decent options for $170.  There are probably other people around that are more familiar with the current sub 200 market than I am.

Best o' luck to ya!

I bought the game hoping for a successor to City of Heroes. What I got was an ARPG designed for play on a console.

I never renewed my subscription after my initial month.

That's putting it kindly.  It was like an ARPG, except loaded with slow responding standing induction attacks and summons.  Ineffectual builders and induction spenders.  The worst of both worlds.

I forgot, what was the original explanation for no capes? Was it clipping?

I don't know about Anet, but I do know that they are a pretty significant draw of video resources in many games.

If, like Anet, you're planning on having a crapton of players attacking one boss mob on a public map(all onscreen at the same time), then all of them having capes or not can mean the difference between getting decent FPS or getting a slideshow.  Even on a really strong system.

Yep I realize that, but that's just bad programming on the companies part, as they could have made nice new area's for lvl 70s.


Well... that's what they did several times for level 60's.  I haven't had the chance to play the new xpac yet, but my basic understanding is that the new area is kinda a hybrid of leveling and lvl 70 daily stuff.  I could be wrong.
