What is it with people whining about pvp in this game.  The lore does not support it.  There are tons of games out there you can pvp in, this is really not one of them.  

Also the whining about money grubbing is just complete nonsense.  I might have spent $100 on the game during it's entire run with two accounts and I have access to everything.  Name me a f2p game that you can do that in.   If you are that cheap you should stick to mobile games.

In the meantime, I'm gonna go find a Call of Duty board and complain about the lack of crafting.

It all depends on how one wants to see it; in my eyes, unlocking content that should have been accessible from level 1 (and the areas where it can be found too) is not endgame - it simply shows lack of a clear vision as to what the game should be about.

Also having this content phased where the player will not meet any opposing faction players...well, not my type of thing. But to each their own i guess.

Well technically you can access that content from level 1 onward.

yes, with an alt.

But then why would i redo content i've already done -albeit with a different character- at level 50?

 

Well considering the whole decision was made based on a lot of complaints about not being able to "see it all" on one toon, it's a bit backward for the players to be worried about that :P. Not to say it's not a legit complaint, as it is, I'm just saying, it was the playerbase that spawned this, not exactly Zenimax.

I don't think their issue is about having it be unlocked at level 50, it's about having the other faction content locked in the first place.  Methinx the complaint stems from the GW2 model, where you can pretty much go to any faction's zones and do the quests to level.  Or even WoW, where you can choose to go behind enemy lines.

I'm not advocating either way, but I'm pretty sure that's what their point was.

LOTRO system makes gw2 system look pretty sub par, longway to go as yet.

I love Lotro, but I have to disagree.

This system translated to Lotro, is like having an infinite number of wardrobe slots, and having every clothing/weapon skin you've ever bound to your character available at any time.  Not only that, but any dye you've ever picked up is available for any piece of armor/clothing you choose at any time.

In Lotro, you're limited to the number of wardrobe slots you have for skins you can pick from.  And each item has to have been dyed with the dye you want in order to be used with that color.  It could be argued that that is superior from the standpoint of being a Scholar who sells their dyes...

...and you could argue that Lotro has many, many, MANY more costume pieces, which it does(it's a much older game)...

...but in simply comparing the two wardrobe systems, the GW2 system gives you FAR more freedom.  Though until GW2 implements multiple outfit slots, Lotro will definitely have the advantage, there.

This system should look familiar to anyone that plays DCU.  The "bind=keep skin forever" system is definitely a lift from there.

Ragnirr gave you what is likely your best options, and about as cheap as you're gonna see.  They will probably run the game acceptably, though not maxxed.  GDDR3 is barely competent by modern standards, but at least it's not shared memory like most laptops.

I love Big Bang Theory, but I can't help but groan when it shows them all playing MMO's on their laptops.

Aside from "gaming laptops", you won't find anything that will run AoC on max, and even gaming laptops won't get particularly great FPS.  Not only were AoC's graphics ahead of hardware capability in 2008 when it was released, it's also not terribly efficient at using newer cards.

Full fledged gaming laptops generally start at about double your 4-500 range.

the important thing to understand is that laptop vid cards just flat out aren't designed for PC gaming.  No matter how new they are, they're designed to competently render screen draws using as little power as possible.  If you want to get your crafting done while on the road, a normal laptop will do ok, but you won't be able to get much else done.

Oh... almost forgot about the zone revamps.  North Downs and Misty Mountains this time, and Trollshaws next, I think.  2 of the 3 are going into this release.

Edit:  looks like all 3 zone revamps will be in this release.

I'm kinda in your boat, myself.  Big Battles didn't do much for me; they run too long and I have no idea if what I'm doing provides any benefit.  At least this time I'll be able to run an alt through the redone zones after the story is completed...

Yep... this will have the final book for vol 3.  Vol. 4 starts later this year.

The "much much more" bit is probably referring to some difficulty tweaking, and new inventory management options.

If that floats your boat.

Marketing at its best.  Tell people level 50 is the cap, and they have 10 more BONUS levels via PvP, is somehow some innovative miracle.

Tell people the level cap is 60, but the final 10 have to be done by PvP?  MMO poison.

People are kinda loopy.

But full disclosure, the game isn't for me.  Obviously, Fallout is one of my favorite game franchises of all time, but if they make an online version with the philosophy of this one, I'm not a buyer.  And that's ok.

Enjoy your game, folks!  It's my hope that if you find what you want here, you won't be trying to change the games I like.  And better yet, stop bitching about how companies won't make the game you want to play.

If the PC is dead in five years, the most likely culprit will be the collapse of human civilization.  If electricity is basically unavailable, or worse, we're all dead, then the death of the PC will be an afterthought.

Kinda reminds me of the Gold argument.  "Buy gold cuz currency is going down the tubes!!!"

If currency goes down the tubes, no one will give a flying crap about gold.  Water?  Food?  Don't make me kill ya for it. 

Until a device comes down the pipe that does everything a PC can do better/cheaper/faster/easier, it will be around.  And the criteria aren't even close to being met.

Note to self:  Set a reminder to visit this thread in, say... December.

Congratulations, you've figured out the rent-to-own business model.

Bingo.

Rent to Own is a sham, no matter what company it is.  Their stuff is total crap, and by the time you're done, you'll have paid 3 times the price you'd pay for something good.

I'm glad you've seen the light, OP.  It took me through most of my 20's to get the picture myself, though in my case it was maxxing out credit cards.  It took some hard lessons and hard living to get out from under all my stupidity. 

IMO, you should take it one step further.  Take all the stuff you've rented to own back to them.  Doesn't matter if you're halfway through the payments or even most of the way; take it back.  One of the main reasons you're strapped for cash is you've been choosing to buy stuff you don't need AT ANY COST.

Next, subscribe to the Dave Ramsey podcast(or listen to his show on AM radio if you no longer have a computer), and listen to every word he says.

Debt destroys you.  Not just financially, but psychologically, as well.  Take that crap back to Aarons and I bet the second you leave the place you'll feel better.  Don't do it to punish yourself, do it to FREE yourself.

If they shortened combat time, chance of aggro(either through thinner mob pop or reduced radius, or a better idea), and decreased mob pursuit time(I've had mobs literally chase me across the entire map), then I would enjoy the game more.  I might even play more than once every update.

The PC "as we know it" has a limited lifespan.

True.  But IMO it won't have a "death", rather, it will evolve.

I'll never forget the reaction of my boss when I showed him an article in PC Magazine in 1989 which discussed the possibility of using 486's as servers to replace mini's. He had over 15 years experience as an IT professional (which made him a minor god in those times). He smiled condescendingly and said: "Don't get too excited now, those are just toys, not serious data processing devices. They will never be able to do what our IBM System-36's can do. Not in a million years..."

Well, there is a difference in practicality improvement between:

-Something going from being the size of both a washer and dryer to becoming the size of a stereo reciever

and

-something going from being the size of a receiver to being the size of a small magazine.

It's absolutely impractical to have something the size of a sys/36 in your house to do word processing or gaming, particularly given that at the time, that's pretty much all you could do at home, anyway.  this means that there was next to 0 market outside of the commercial realm for such a beast.  Meanwhile, the PC was practical to have in the home, and so the market steadily grew as PC's were capable of doing more and more things.

And as server cluster technology began to grow, and you could have a couple dozen 486's in the place of this massive mainframe(and quite often cost less), it became the more practical, scaleable solution.

A final point: notebooks didn't kill PC's, so IMO there's no reason to think that tablets will, either.  And notebooks had even more going for them.  They can do nearly anything a PC can, they just sacrifice some performance for portability.  Matter of fact, I'd say tablets are probably cutting much more into the laptop market than the PC market.

TL;DR  mainframes went extinct because there were no longer any good reasons to keep them compared to a cluster of PC servers.  In contrast to the PC in our modern era, which still has an acceptable form factor, and still does most everything better than its handheld competition and consoles, no matter how many of them you manage to stack together.

Web Developer by trade and no, I don't see it happening.

Someone asked me recently about getting an ipad to replace their computer. I told them it was a bad idea. Once I started talking about how they would have to find apps to replace all the programs they had on CD they gave up on the plan.

A PC without the internet is still worth something. Why settle for a device that is practically worthless without the internet.

Those portable devices just sell more because they are a vanity item since people see you with them. They are like new clothes. Many people don't wear out clothes before they buy new ones. Same with desktop computers, behind closed doors and offices there are plenty of older computers running.

Trust me on this, I see browser statistics all the time. Mobile is not very big on most of our sites. Mobile is high for social media but company websites and the like - honestly - if you make an app - you are wasting money unless it's a way for people to pay you. Deep information searches also aren't mobile friendly. Comparison shopping is where mobile gains share but most of the shopping is from the big sites so don't expect to get ahead selling specialty cookies or ebay items.

It is getting harder to find standard non wireless modems - that's true but I wouldn't be concerned about the PC itself. The push to try to get you to buy wi-fi devices though is large. Why not make you buy something that you will replace yearly or so. It just makes them more money and having those juicy signals in the air instead of being corded - oh Google just loves that. They already got caught sniffing wireless networks with their cars that drive themselves.

 

Wow... I... wow.... This is some real sh!t.  So good, it beared repeating.

PC gaming ain't dead.  Proof?  The Xbone/Ps keep getting closer and closer to being PC's without ever offering the choice of being a PC.

 

I think both these posts provide the ultimate point.  Integration.

the PC platform will always have the horsepower and customization to effectively do the jobs that newer tech tries to take over.  The market isn't going to kill a machine that can do everything and replace it with stuff that can do SOME things.

What I think we'll see in the next 5 years is further cooperation and integration of devices with PC's.  Near Field Communication is one indication.  WiDi is another.  Any time these new technologies are created, your PC is the first to be able to embrace it, even if it's 4-5 years old.  Meanwhile, if your phone or TV or pad are 2+ years old, that tech is unavailable.

PC's will always be faster, have more storage, be more capable of integrating with newer tech via software or USB/upgrade slot hardware, process faster, read/write faster, basically do everything better with the exception of fitting in your pocket.  But there's nothing stopping a component being made that does fit in your pocket that controls your PC.  With an android phone and a VNC viewer app you can do that, already.

There's very little that a smartphone or ipad does that a PC can't do better.  Heck, with Skype or Google Hangouts, a PC is a better phone than a smartphone is...

 

Ever tried to create an MMO?

Try, and you'll find out.

...if you see the buddha on the road... kill him.

Thanks for the advice :) though i dont think i could kill buddha, I mean he teaches respect of all life. Kinda hard to kill him  knowing what he taught :) hehehehe

 O

Well, the proverb comes from the idea that your whole lifetime is devoted to seeking the buddha.  Finding him is false... often a deception or a temporary fix for what ails you in life.  Keep seeking and best of luck!

Be wellsville!

     Well im a kenpo instructor, That will take alot of my time. I love teaching the kids :)

     I also have art, and cooking. Went to  cunlinary school 15 years back i guess i could also delve into that.

     I honestly think people are so hopelessy addicted to online they cant even seem to fathom what a life without feels like. Well the taste ive had are that as strong as a fresh fig. And if you seperate yourself from online for a just a little while, you will find out that you are talented in a whole bunch of things, but you will never find them if all your time is preoccupied.

I don't tend to believe that being online is an addiction.  IMO, it's a major evolutionary step for mankind.  But like anything else, it's a great servant, but a horrible master.

Like all evolutionary steps, there are ugly, disgusting aspects.  The way some people behave when they're anonymous, for example.  Something that particularly shows its head in forums...

Your journey is your own, but I suspect that it will someday involve "being online" as much as anything else, but on terms that work for you.  Either way, if you feel the need to leave, then I say good luck to ya's!

     Anything can be addictive, If the person on it has an addictive personality. I think of the internet as a deolution of mankind. Seriously not trying to troll :) I mean TV and small screens have caused humans to slowly lose periferal (spelling?) vision. communications may have seen to expanded, but the actualy interaction from people has gone down due to it. But i argue this about the calculator too. I usally do all math problems in my head, maybe on paper if i have to. One night i was tired stayed up late and was adding up dynamis curency numbers in ffxi. I use the calculator. Next few times i just decided, "hell why not use the calculator, I allready know how to add this up" I did this for awhile, til i realized that when i did try to add them up in my head later. it was much harder to do. you know kinda like using a crutch when u dont need it, after a bit your body will reply on that and your leg will grow weaker, because it has less of a reason to. Think about this and then think about alot of modern technology. You might come to find out, I am not as mad as people think :)

You understand that the reason people start things, and post things, and reply to things, is to get the attention of people who care about such things... right?

Seriously.  If you're just posting stuff simply for your own benefit, let us know, so we can ignore you.
