Yes, my thoughts exactly.

I agree they could let you help friends and other players but they don't want you to power level maybe.

I think the main reason is you could have a max level help you and that would just be the easy way out.

Oh please.

So just because some folks might abuse a system let's keep people from playing with their friends?

Yes you are right we would not want MMORPG's to actually encourage group play any more since everyone knows most MMO's have been turned into a single player game many years ago.:P

As long as they are well done I can play either style graphics. It's sad how I almost feel greedy wanting a great game and great graphics together, but shouldn't it be expected at this point.

May I ask why not? The advancements in cpu's and vid cards have come along way even since EQ2.  Don't tell me they have to go backwards to make a modern MMO.:)

Originally posted by Talint

Why then, are these companies still falling back on the cartoon graphics?  Is it because it is what they think we like?  Is it because it is what has to be done if you want to see hundreds of people on your screen at once without lagging? or is it simply because that is what they have done, and will always do?

 

This puzzles me greatly. The graphic advancements over the years with vid cards is simply amazing and yet all devs what to give us is Saturday morning cartoons.

Originally posted by ckeeton999
Stop whining about the graphics. My god do you really want a game that looks great but runs like crap on your machine?! Use your head!

No I prefer a game that runs great on my  computer but makes me giggle like a 12 year old every time I look at my toon.

Originally posted by Vivasvan

I'm not sure what market this is aimed at but it will not be a huge success or the saviour of mmos or the next generation of mmos. It might have been if they didnt have the ridiculous graphics that even my 15 yr old cousin is ashamed to touch.  

 

Oops Sony is in trouble if the Free Realms crowd won't touch this.

My only other question is why are gaming developers trying to cram cartoons down adults throat when graphic cards have gotten more high tech over the years?

Surely graphic card companies are not spending millions of dollars for development so we can play a disney game?

Personally, I could care less about the trinity as long as whatever replaces it is cohesive and fun. Problem I have is when any class setup can beat any encounter. That sounds a lot like a bunch of solo players playing along side each other. Which is neither cohesive or fun.

Yep Sony is making another solo player game like lotro did with open tapping.  No grouping required and no actual thinking either.

Great way to build a community with all solo players who can kill everything and depend on nobody!

It's hard to make a cartoon authentic.

 

 

ROFL yes this is true.

Originally posted by Vivasvan
The only thing that will make this feel like EQ is if they actually make it look like EQ??

And not like WoW.

So far it looks like WoW 2.5.

No ounce of EQ In this at all.
 

Totally agree.

 

Either WoW 2.5 or Wildstar's little brother.:)

 

Hmm make a world feel authentic with kiddie cartoon graphics I can watch on Saturday morning.

Not sure this is possible.

Maybe Sony would rather drawn in the Free Realm crowd instead of the veteran Everquest folks?

 

Originally posted by botrytis

Sorry - has nothing to do with solo-friendly (that is a red herring argument). It has to do with the AI getting more complex with mobs and the set roles of the Trinity being limiting (play-wise for players). There is noting inherently wrong with the Trinity except players do prefer what is more comfortable to them rather than trying something new.

 

The trinity was of a time when the MOB AI was limited (all they could do was increase XP of the mob or give them one strong attack, buff, debuff, etc). AI's can be more complex and there are fights in GW2, for example in higher  level Fractals, where a Trinity group would be absolutely wiped out with one hit.

For the sake of discussion please provide me with a link  where a developer actually has said this and not just your opinion.

Thank  you.:)

It has to do with making MMOs even more solo friendly. If there is no interdependence between classes than there is no need to group at all except for raiding. This has taken MMOs even further down the road to single player games.

Bren

Agree.

It seems all game developers want these days is to make easy mode single player games and forget the group mechanic.

oh come one people, stop the lame "it's aging better" argument for stylized cartoon graphics, SWTOR used the same lame argument and fact is, it just looked cheesy on release, today and will still be cheesy in 10 years.

e.g. Age of Conan isn't "stylized", it's looking great since 2008, got regular engine updates and still looks great today and will in 10 years.

That's how EQ should look like imho

Yes SWTOR did and does look cheesy.

I am kind of wondering now what is the purpose of continuing to push the envelope on what graphic cards can do if all you are going to draw with them is cartoons?

Originally posted by evianwater

All that said..I'm still going to play the game, but the artstyle was incredibly dissapointing to me. To me this is not EQ's style, its more like their Clone Wars kiddie game with the ridiculous over-exaggerated eyes and other facial features along with the clay-mation style hair and bright colors.

Yes agree.

It make me wonder if they were thinking of Veteran EQ players when they decided to go this direction or were they more concerned since they made it f2p to go after everyone else?

 Graphics are cartoony, because thats the only way possible to make a timeless game. 

 

I would highly debate this.

Cartoony graphics may turn off some die hard EQ fans but should cater to SOE's player base that play games like Free Realms.

There are many games still around that have realistic graphics and on a side note cartoon graphics don't insure a wildly successful game.:P

Just my 2 cents, and as always this is just my opinion.:)

Montaronx some of you folks mix up complaining with having a difference of opinion.

I highly respect all of these developers but that does not mean I don't have different tastes and also look at  MMO  history.

Other than WoW what other MMOs has been highly successful using kiddie cartoons?

I would accept the cartoon stuff if the team had just come out and said we needed to do this so you can blow the world up but no they come out and say it adds immersion and the game will look pretty in 5 years.

 

"Because of the above stated goals, stylized art was chosen for several reasons: It ages more gracefully, it can evoke an emotional response and creates immersion and it allows the development team to give players a way to use senses other than vision to immerse themselves in the game world.

For characters, the stylized art allows for a weightier character, not so much in terms of gigantic oversized bulk, but more in the substance of a character. In addition, stylized art allows for better facial expressions. The team likened it to Pixar: Oversized eyes, lips, exaggerated body movements, etc."

 

Hmm so oversized "tony the tiger" cartoon characters and environment creates immersion?

Don't agree.

Making things in the environment useable, sitting in chairs, trees that fall when you chop them down, day and night cycles, one single world with no load screens, these create immersion.

While I am in awe of what the EQN team has come up with believing cartoonish art work creates immersion is just plain silly.

As an added note if cartoons created immersion than all the block buster movies, "Star Wars" etc.  would have been made with cartoons.

 

Bill nice article!

One question though. Did the EQN team give any reasoning for using a cartoon game engine?

Totally agree.

I prefer to call it a cash grab which games like LOTRO have turned into.

The temptation to exploit the player base after a company sees how much money

they can make is to much for most MMO companies.

 

LOL you don't even have to do any thinking in LOTRO any more it is just accept quest,

use mithril coins to go direct to the npc, click on him then use mithril coins to go back and

turn in.

No thinking, no challenge, mindless activity.
