So a video got posted yesterday about how we should have more Sandbox MMOs. Im fine with that not a problem. 

When he talked about it he talked about Eve, how its endless. Players will never run out of content. Amazing.

But this is PVP. How does a company make an endless sandbox MMO for PVE? He said the problem with theme park is that content is being processed faster than devs can create it. Well how would any company make a PVE game endless? Not all people want to do just PVP constantly. Most in fact.

The whole point of the video was that WoW destroyed the MMO community because everyone started making theme parks. and left Sandbox games to rot.

It just got me thinking. Sandbox rpgs today dont have anything special that makes them endless over a theme park RPG. 

Few ways, pvp of course, but you don't want to go into that.

Other option might be item decay.

It did wonders in SWG, materials had to be harvested and every material spawned during a period and had different stats.

So every item eventually decayed and broke down after usage, so there was always a demand for new items and materials for everyone out there in the virtual world.

So that's a way to keep everyone busy and the economy rolling, even in a themepark.

Yes get it! It has 10 years worth of content. 8 million players. Also it is way better than ESO in terms of PVP and PVE. Also it doesn't have a billion bugs. 

Don't forget the mindless repeating dailies, tamagotchi fights and the "buy your own instant level 90 now!" feature.

If the new player doesn't have the time to level to max and go through all content in 1 day of course.

wonderful, they really want to kill WvW and have it filled with pve players with no clue how things work.

 

oh well-.-

It's better then the current "follow the zerg&commander" elitist pvp that is going on now.

What do you think this forum exists for?  It exist for fans of the genre to share their thoughts and feelings on the genre. What you should ask is, if  your opinion on his opinion matters. It adds nothing to the discussions of this game or any other game.

 

in other words Smarten up dum-dum!

"It exist for fans of the genre to share their thoughts and feelings"

 

Sharing your opinions is kinda different then telling others they are idiots and they are THE authority to take serious, while posting such stuff you insult others and make yourself look stupid trying to convince others that you are smart.

Posting stuff like that it is better to have a good flamesuit ready. Unless you are a troll, then it's +1 for every reply and wait for the forum mods to issue a ban/warning for posting troll threads.

I come here to tell you that no matter how hard you try to defend eso the game will end up buy to play or free to play.

Having try all major mmos i come to say that this game is worse than starwars and gw2.

Why it's worse?

Not because of graphics or sound or combat or anything like that.

The game misses one very important aspect of all games.To captivate the interest of the players in a magical charming way.

In one word the game gets boring very fast.

It's the first time in my life i played only a few days and not even care what will happen next.

At least swtor and gw 2 gave me that feeling.

Good, thank you for that! Now I don't have to play it anymore because you clearly know how I'm going to feel about it soon. Cheers!

OP apparently is THE benchmark for all games out there, better take him serious, after alll, he has tried all major mmo's so he knows what's best for you, especially as we are all blind according to his 1st line.

They already have, if the forums are to be believed (dubious). But just to be safe, I dont report anyone, or use zone chat. Apparently some people got banned for reporting gold sellers and had to wait several days for their account to be reinstated. I dont entirely trust that ZOS customer service/GM's know what they're doing, so no chances taken.

There are millions of innocent prisoners behind bars. It must be true, because they all say they have done nothing.  :)

I'm bored already.

I've gotten level 31 with my main, got alts at 10 and 15 and some minor. And I don't feel like opening the game and start leveling anymore. It's a hassle. I feel the leveling takes too much time, and isn't as interesting. I mean, I've had fun until now. As a guy not really interesting in story, so I don't listen to a voiced book all day, I skip that part, and play the game. As I enjoyed the combat, the builds availiable. But all in all, I'm bored. I unsubbed, and are falling back to my old MMOs. And I don't think the market is really up for more sub-based games at this time.

I mean what should I do? When I think it's a hassle to even start up the game, thinking about all the grinding of quests. I didn't really get into the crafting even. I hate the fact that an item, and the whole item can be ruined in an attempt to make it better. So I've been researching and gathering mostly. Finding the inventory(bag and bankspace) also annyoing in the game. I want to save up for that faster horse, not spending it all on bag and bankspace.

The itemization isn't even that interesting. Damage, enchants with various damage and stuff is mostly it. Then the traits, more xp for that particular item, less costs upon dying? Boring. Set items is of course the thing, but why collect a set at level 30, when you get better invidual items a few quests/mobs later.

 

Anyone else feeling this? I'd liek tip on what to do in order to feel less bored with it. I'm in 2-3 playerguilds already.

So you want a MMO where you can race through levels, skip content, no background quest story and only the "ok ok ok, I dont have time, not interested in the who what where why story, kill 10 boars and return? gotcha, gotta go now! Hurry!".

The game's out like 1 week or so and you're grinding and complaining about getting burned out?

 

No rant but you're better off with World of Warcraft.

Bypass story lines, fast clicking. reach end level in 1 day, get XP boosting gear on your alts; reach end level in 1 day with those, or simply buy a boost to level 90 immediately.

This game is for players that want to enjoy the ride, not the finish.

I'm confused :(

I thought the superb pvp endgame was supposed to keep those hardcore players who rushed to level cap engaged and playing?

PvE was always supposed to be the levelling process in ESO with the endgame being AvA, so how are players burning out on ESO already?

These days it's "omg, I must hurry through this PVE leveling thing asap to get to the real content where it all happens;  the endgame" for many.

You can easily spot that group of people when they start complaining about endgame content when they are still leveling or doing a query about a upcoming game.

All this talk about spiritual successor to SWG, I have seen a lot of different viewpoints on what actually made SWG, well, SWG!

To me, Star Wars Galaxies had a handful of truly unique features that if I were to consider a spiritual successor to this game, they would have to include the following:

1. A dynamic resource system. Resources were always unique and in constant flux. Each had a set of unique stats that could benefits different crafters in different ways. Most of the time it was architect fodder, but it was still fun to scour the planets in search for something truly rare and valuable.

2. The Entertainers: Classes dedicated to promoting socialization. Dancers, Musicians, Image Designers. These classes were made for the sole purpose of bringing players together in a social atmosphere. This, imho, is sorely lacking in most mmos today.

3. The Bio Engineer. To me, the beauty of this class wasnt the pets. It was the fact that SWG had a class that could support other crafting classes. Bio Engineered additives and enhancers made chefs food better, doctors medicine better etc. How many mmos have support classes for combat? Now how many of those have one for crafting too? Yeah not many, if any at all.

There are plenty more but those are just a few of the big ones for me. What were some singular features that made Star Wars Galaxies unique to you?

freedom, community driven content (SOE provided none), sandbox, Star Wars original timeline.

Yeah that 100 mil would be wasted, SWTOR is what it is, if anything the money should be used on a SWTOR 2 game that advances the storyline is better set up and like Mass Effect gives you bonuses for importing your old characters :)

There is not going to be a SWTOR 2, as this MMO is meant to cater to all The Old Republic content.

"We're making KOTOR 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and beyond--this game is that big, it's got that much content in it," explained BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka. "It's very innovative--it's story based."

and be around at least 10 years

If we have to wait until 2022 for SWTOR and it gets another cash injection then SWTOR needs a revamp, and especially after playing TESO, which has been beautifully created with love and care, and makes exploring a pleasure, and it makes SWTOR look a clown of a MMO. SWG took my breath away with some of its scenery, LOTRO graphics took my breath away, and now does The Elder Scrolls Online. SWTOR graphics does nothing but make me cringe.

The things that need changing in SWTOR are the graphics to be less cartoony, the worlds need to be expanded and remove all the exhaustion zones, and make the worlds more lively.

You forgot less static cut scenes , o wait the new ones aren't static and SWTOR cartoony ? Hm you must have played a different game than myself. At least they have made the cut scenes better that's what you wanted and a few others on here. You should check it out and btw they change the graphics on a regular basis. I always see changes.

As to the OP they probably have put in a lot of money over the two or so years , so not sure what closing it down and revamping it would do at this point. So no I think leave as is please.

Cheers,

BadOrb.

I did not say it was a cartoon, I said it was cartoony - SWTOR is half realistic and half cartoon, therefore cartoony. The graphics are certainly blocky and mostly duplicated everywhere. There is zero cartoon traits in TESO, and there was none in SWG, and also none in LOTRO.

I do not care too much for cut scenes in MMOs. It is much better that the NPCs interact and move with you (and others) within the game world, which TESO (and LOTRO) does more. In TESO it seems that NPCs are only in certain places for you if you have or have not done the quests. While others can see a NPC, you will not if you have done the NPCs quest, which I find to be quite smart.

Since its half cartoony and half realistic so why not realistic?  your post makes no sense.

Swtor has its own art style and TESO is well based on ES.

Its like comparing apple with oranges. 

Because it is not realistic enough to take seriosuly. SWG was not half baked, nor was LOTRO or TESO, so why should SWTOR be? Even KOTOR was not cartoony either.

The fact you think SWG had good graphics pretty much invalidates anything you have to say. The game looked like ass, and had an engine even more unoptimized than SWTOR's.

SWG practically defined the term, 'half-baked'. It was a buggy mess of an unfinished game with a great crafting system and community holding it up, along with the eventual addition of space combat.

It does not invalidate anything. Also it is down to personal preference

SWGs graphics are just dated now. Going back to the screenshots the graphics are not blowing me away like they did, but they did blow me away years ago (2003/2004). I have not once been blown away by the graphics in SWTOR, due to all the blocky cartoony effects, however I have been blown away countless times with the graphics in TESO. If SWG released today with those graphics then yes the graphics would be crap and be half-baked. However I still prefer its style over SWTORs with its blocky repetitive style. If SWTOR had graphics like TESO it would have been something awesome. 

I dont mind SWTOR graphics, frankly, I like them, it's just because the engine can't handle a good number of players and the game is EXTREMELY linear as far as progressing goes that every player has the same story to tell about his/her experiences with this game, it's just the character's name that is different.

I like freedom, and that is something SWTOR does not offer in any way.

Space on rails, planets with invisible walls and a one-way questing path and no way of playing other content except join the themepark ride.

LOVE sandboxes, it extends the playing experiences and adds own experiences instead of scripted presented to you by developers. When SWTOR stays the ultimate prison themepark as it is, I can never enjoy it.

Yeah that's true if I wasn't main tank for my raid guild in WOW I probably wouldn't be playing mmo's very much.

You should ask yourself the question if you are playing games to enjoy yourself or is it because it's a job now when you have to satisfy your guild?

Scenario 1:  It's clear that I'm going to lose a game.  On my last turn, I saw that my opponent had enough on the board to kill me on his next turn.  I looked through my cards and found that I couldn't stop it.  I end my turn and all my opponent has to do is have a single minion already on the board attack my hero and that ends the game.

Some people will do the polite thing:  kill me to promptly end the game so that we can both get the reward for playing and move on.  But a large fraction won't.  Some will sit there and think for a while, play three cards, buff minions, heal his own hero, kill my last minion (which isn't a taunt), and finally get around to killing my hero after using the bulk of the time allowed for his turn.

Why do people do this?

To be clear, I'm not talking about situations where my opponent needs to play a few cards, clear my taunt minions, buff his own minions, or whatever to have a complicated last turn to win the game.  I can understand why it takes a while to think about that.  But when all it takes is this minion attacks my hero with no secrets on the board and the game is 100% guaranteed to end with no further actions?  I don't understand taking 40 seconds for a turn to do 5 other moves before ending it.

-----

Scenario 2:  It's clear that I'm going to win a game.  I have it set up so that I have enough on the board to end the game on my next turn unless my opponent can do something to defend against it (kill minions, drop a taunt, self-heal, etc.).  My opponent sees this, looks through his hand, and realizes that he's lost.

Some people will do the polite thing:  end his turn, let me kill him, and we both get the reward for playing and move on.  But an awful lot of people will decide to concede the match immediately instead.  Letting the match last another 5 seconds would increase the experience rewards for both of us.

This one, I'm a little more sympathetic to.  Some people may not care about experience; from the number of non-golden basic cards they're using, it's pretty obvious that they haven't hit the experience cap yet.  But if you don't care about golden cards, so be it.  And someone might reasonably worry that scenario #1 will play out, as seems to happen a lot.  But I still think it's annoying.

And these are just games that frustrate those players, they are like that in real life too, imagine what they do there when things don't go their way.

rebooting EVE on a new cluster is like rewriting history, a guaranteed fail.

And indeed, many players (with knowledge of coding and working for game developers) have presented great ideas, and CCP just ignores it and releases different content, more aimed at attracting players who want to put in less effort and content aimed at cash shops for the future.

Much new content is just a small bandage for big wounds, they still enable a handful of players to make a cartel and run the game. New paintjobs on existing ship models; few new mods which got exploited on day 1 after release. CCP releases a shocking low amount of content every 6 months for a few expansions already.

Maybe their staff is too small at this moment?

 

The game needs much more diverse content aimed at players that do not want to follow that one leader shouting instructions or telling how it is to his 1000+ minions and more content for the general player in Empire space.

Moon monopoly is still there, siphon units, not worth it, mobile units - 3k storage except the expensive mods, it's easier to just use cans in space-.

The game is still aimed too much at large entities.

Yet, EverQuest still lives, despite EverQuest 2 lauching and I'm pretty sure both EQ and EQ2 will be around long after EQNext launches. The point the OP poster is making is there are new, fresh blood players interested in Eve, but Eve is definitely not new player friendly. Having a second shard would allow the next generation of people interested in Eve to at least attempt to accomplish what current Eve veterans have.

Why can't you do that right now? start the game with a new toon, earn a bit of ISK, start a corporation, and build from there and you can be alliance leader and filthy rich in no time, granted, if you have the brains to pull it off. Some people don't have the tools to do that.

Your ambition is the only limit in this game. The chances are right there for the taking, if you think you need to be on the same level as everyone else as far as ISK and SP are concerned, you are gravely mistaken.

I know players who were with me in 2003 and are still grunts with less then 1b ISK, and I see new players (2012-2013) who are corp leaders/alliance leaders now with 100+b in their wallets.

And yes, you can't be a titan pilot in 2 months, it takes time, still you can be a VERY useful addition to any corporation without being a 10y+ veteran. I got 160M+ skillpoints on most of my toons, 80% of those skillpoints dont help me one bit if I am in a ship which does not benefit from those skillpoints. As far as PVP is concerned, EVE is mostly a gank  &chess game, skill+pure luck > everything else. I see that every time when I log on to my 10M sp pvp alt which I use to kill "veterans" who are used to play in 10:1 advantage blobs and think they can pvp but can't ever win a 1 vs1. :)

Besides, it's not just about skill points advantage, it's about ISK too.

I worked my a$$ off for some ISK back in 2003, I have a friend play the trial, he had 1b after 1 month. Difficult? No, just use your brains.

EDIT: Theres a reason EQ population booms during a new progression server. Just thought I'd add that in.

Eve thrives on being a single shard game, adding more will just split up the population and you woul djust create another multi shard game like those themeparks out there.

CCP just needs to add more diverse content, and not listen to powerblock alliance leaders and just think what is good for the game and not because a alliance leader tells his thousands of minions to send in complaints and threaten to leave the game.

The idea behind it was great, the execution and management, very poor to stay positive.

Nonetheless, I loved to play the game till 2005. The community made it bearable an dproduced some of the best MMO experiences I ever had with my friends.

The game needs much more diverse content aimed at players that do not want to follow that one leader shouting instructions or telling how it is to his 1000+ minions and more content for the general player in Empire space.

Moon monopoly is still there, siphon units, not worth it, mobile units - 3k storage except the expensive mods, it's easier to just use cans in space-.

The game is still aimed too much at large entities.

A new cluster isn't the problem in EVE, it is CCP favoring a certain group in the 2-side null sec wars and nerfing and boosting when those leaders demand it.

Only when that is solved, EVE will be healthy again. 

What on earth are you talking about?.. the CCP <3 BoB days are way passed.

The problem with null is two coalitions that have all the space they need and have zero incentive to start a nullsec war. It's easier to just sit back and bathe in renter ISK.

All the third parties are either already sided with one of the two coalitions or are too small to make a difference.

In all my years playing this game I NEVER remember nullsec being so stagnant as it is now.

I am pointing out at majority of CCP devs being ex members of Goonswarm.

Releasing content and nerfing it when it didnt benefit that side. For example nerfing siphon units before release because a certain Goon Leader feared mass spamming of those on their towers and he contacted CCP.

They nerfed the amount and the cargo bay. Same with the mobile units.....just to name a few examples. CCP only comes to action when it affects that coalition.

If you didnt notice that, you should start playing again, Bob has been dead for many years now. And yes, I have been member of all incarnations.

 

That said, CCP needs to dissolve blob advantages, which they won't. A new server will result into a new Blob cluster very fast.

In fact, look at the Chinese cluster, Mega blob vs megablob right there.

Think of it like a endless stream of content, you'r enever done learning, unlike certain other games where you see all content and reach your peak in 1 day.

Why would EVE benefit from a new cluster?

And please dont start with the "veterans have a unfair advantage because of their skillpoints" because it has been proven time and time again that knowledge > skillpoints. If you think that I would advise to l2play.

I pwn so many players in the North with 20-70m skillpoints on a 10m alt roaming there alone.

 

It is a sandbox, so content would be the same.

Blobs will still exist because players would get together again and reform, just take different regions. 90% just follows the leaders, the same people that will stand up and take the reigns of new alliances on a new cluster.

This statement is sooooo 2010, anyone paying even a little attention can call you out on this one.

 

No need to, I know I am right.

 

But np, I wish you all the best with this game, there can't be enough sandboxes in the mmo scene.
