Holy mother of patch notes!   Damn they're making other games look laughably ....ridiculous!  Just comparing this patch to the Patch 3.0 of ToR for example, or the latest WoD Beta patch.  It's astonishing how much work Carbine gets done and is doing, even though in their videos they look like a bunch of slacking goofballs (in a good way, mind you).

 

 

Curious what the 1x1 "Customization Station" for housing is.  As an Architect, it's good to see them adding in new blueprints for us to create from.  Although it would be nice to get some world-drop schematics that can be traded and/or sold on the Auction House between players.

Hello all!

 

So I've gotten a random junk Warlords of Draenor Close Beta key. 

 

Why call it "Random Junk"? 

 

Because the key only works if you have Mists of Pandaria on your Battle.Net Blizzard account, so that makes it worthless junk to someone like me.  

 

Their  "housing" (aka Garrison) might be good, the graphic update might be stellar, however the combat is still very much dated and the story line/content is a rehashing of Orcs, Humans, Draeni, and Outland pre-destruction.

 

So, onto the Key.  Where to begin? I cannot simply "Post" the key, can I? No, that would be too simple.  I must make it  a challenge, and I shall do so in a weird fashion.  So......FIND THE KEY!:

What do you guys think of constantly having to move out of telegraphs in PvE, even just landscape play?  In beta, I found it fun at first, but as the telegraphs became more complex, I started to find it annoying.  No chance to relax, which is what I want most from an MMO.

The thing is that combat should never be about relaxing.  A player shouldn't be able to AFK auto-attack mobs while heating up a Hotpocket in the microwave.     There are many tasks and things to do to relax outside of combat, however when engaged in a conflicting fight you should always be on your toes.

 

Wildstar has a TON of relaxing things to do outside of combat...although Challenges isn't one of them (they're  on a timer and rush you, the exact opposite of relaxing!).

 

Housing is relaxing....

 

Crafting is relaxing....

 

Exploring is relaxing....

 

Sitting in a Lopp village and listening to commentary is relaxing....

 

The music is relaxing....

 

T-bagging a player you just ganked in world PvP is relaxing (the after part of combat).....

 

Got to love these "Good game, but it's been done before" comments.  Like, what are you expecting?  That is what this genre is.  Do they say that for every CoD? Every Halo? Every Battlefield, MOBA,  RPG, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls, or whatever other genre games?  Seems like MMORPG is the only genre that gets directly attacked each and every game for "oh, it's so similar to XXX" or "these things have been done before".     Maybe people just want a different setting (oh look, it's Sci-Fi and NOT Fantasy!) as well as a bit of polish.


 


Sure the UI has been done before, the action combat too, the housing, the questing, the raiding, the server shard set up.  WHO CARES?!  The fact that they've brought them all together under one title instead of spread out amongst a bunch of titles, and the fact that it's set in a new unique sci-fi IP setting, makes it unique enough to stand on its own feet.


 


      Also stop with the "might as well play WoW" bullcrap, because over a decade of Orcs and Elves is well enough to have something far more interesting and better (Chua, Aurin, Granok and Mechari, for examples).   This game -Wildstar- has that Sci-Fi setting that is fun, humorous, and reminds me a lot of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in style.


 


Bottom line is that those that keep asking for "something new" to the genre and dislike GW2 (about as new/different from the rest of the pack as you can get), then those people are just simply put done with the genre and need to find a new hobby.  But stop asking for something to be something it's not and try to find some miracle pot-of-gold-game at the end of rainbow...because that's not a rainbow, that's a hurricane and you are blind and doomed!


As cool as it would be to win this T-shirt, from which I totally would be sporting it in a Gamestop, I have questionable experience with MMORPG.com "giveaways" in the past.   There's this giveaway here http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/632/view/news/page/3/read/31009/WildStar-Rowsdower-Plushie-Giveaway-Part-Deux.html where I'd apparently won.  However after sending 2 PM's, 2 emails, and 1 "Contact Us" support ticket, I've gotten exactly zer0 responses from MMORPG at all, nor have I received any prize I've 'won' nearly 2 months ago.   So any hopes of winning an actual prize from this particular content is on the same with winning a lottery ticket...
I see the Strain as a sort of similarity to the Blight of World of Warcraft.   However, they're much more vibrant and interesting than the Blight.   Anyone who's played Vanilla WoW would know how much time was spent in the Plaguelands and how ....drab it all was.      Since these guys [Wildstar Devs] are former WoW designers from Vanilla, I assume they had a hand in that aspect of the game and are now on a fitting return of correction for this game's 'disease'.

They apparently got banned today and were not given a reason.
He says he was not doing anything that he would not do in WOW.

Anybody know what the rules are for being banned?


That can be a number of things. 

 

First there's the possibility of multi-boxing (running 4 account, 4 characters with a program that allows nearly full automation sync of the other 3 to the main controlling of a primary).  Although WoW allows it, that's not allowed in this game and will get you banned. 

 

Second guess is cursing, swearing, and general distasteful language directed at other players.  Players in WoW are kind of used to that language and don't report as often.  It's no big deal to them.  This game has a flood of new people as well as others that just don't like that kind of stuff.  If you're calling everyone a "homosexual douchebag" just because they stole your resource node or killed you in PvP, you're going to get reported and suspended/banned.

 

Third guess is guild recruitment spam.   Spam is spam, don't care how you think it's not.  When you're spamming your guild recruitment in every /zone and /advice channel you can, every 3-5 minutes: that's spam.  You're getting reported.  After the initial wave of gold sellers who were doing their thing, I've not gotten those in 1.5-2 weeks now, but the guild recruitment spam is what's driving me nuts in-game.

 

There is also linking porn pics in chat.  That's a big no-no.   Peps were doing this in TBC (last major time I stepped into WoW) and it's detestable.  So, that's another thing your friend could be doing too.

 

Another is trade scamming.  That's where you're telling someone that you are going to give them X gold for an item they trade you, then you give them 0 while they give you the item.  It's bannable in most every game that I'm aware of except EVE (because EVE is weird like that), so I'm not sure it was allowed in WoW either.

 

Here's their Rules of Conduct for you to have your friend go over and see what s/he's done.

So, basically no "true" MMORPGs, right?  You've got a listening of hybrids, survivor horror games, single player RPGs, and the winner is a console game that's heavily instanced, heavily limited on many aspects that would even make it an MMORPG in the first place.

 

Congratulations on what seems to be the most pathetic E3 for MMORPGs in...ever? 

 

The games that are clearly missing and will eventually add proper to the genre are going to be Camelot Unchained,  EverQuest Next, The Repopulation,  and a few others [NO!, I will not list ArcheAge because it's just Englishifying an Asian MMO, which has some of the worse combat I've ever seen.  The combat of the game is 3-steps back from what other companies have done.

 Enough said?

Not really sure what you're getting at with that one?  That's a very high-quality game deserving of that score.  The game was -and still is- enjoyed by many players and critics alike.   The price point of $60 plus no subscription was also a major factor in the game's score from many of the critics; basically that lack of subscription helped boost it 2-4 points alone.   

 

Wildstar is a great game and as a subscription based on is going to be held to a higher standard than many other games out there on the market.  Why?  Because there has to be a content justification for that $15 a month for the players....and there most definitely is.    The game's housing is the rave of players, media, critics, and even haters cannot dispute it's appeal (unless they hate housing, which is to say the genre isn't for them :P).    The questing, group content, open world PvP, fun action-based combat, and other things of the game solidify it's enjoyability factor.   Fun = high score = good game.  Get it?

2.2 million thats crazy. Im guessing a majority being the guest passes which makes minimally 550k copies sold if none of the guest pass players paid.

Way to not read the article and just skip through to number to try to dispute them in any way possible.  Do you work for Fox News?   Anyways, those "2.2 million" are add-on downloads.  Not everyone downloads add-ons for their game. [ I am an example of those that don't. ]  

 

WildStar’s housing is already causing players to stall at level 14,

 

And that Penny Arcade comic strip linked is mostly spot on for me.  I've wiggled my way to 25 just so I could use the DE hoverboard I so badly wanted, but I'm stuck there doing feng shui with my plot.  It's crazy what you can do with full 360 X, Y, and Z axis controls as well as the scaling of item size.

I'll be the first to defend blizzard, but they need to flood the news sections with more warlords previews at this time and not mounts. 

For anyone who is still debating this, the team that makes these mounts has nothing to do with content.  

The team that makes these mounts has EVERYTHING to do with content!  Why?  Because MOUNTS ARE CONTENT!   I'm not sure how current WoW is, but back in vanilla and TBC, collection of mounts, pets, instruments, and other non-combat items was an actual style of gameplay.  Stratholme (sp?) was ran so many times just to get the piccolo, not for the actual dungeon itself.

 

Artists, animators, sound teams, more were used to make these items.    These items that could have been stuck in the game as a quest item, as a rep reward, as a reward given to loyal fans who still subscribe to a game paying $15 a month for what is so far 10 months of no content in a subscription based game.  But no....not at all.  Instead they take this item that is paid for by the subscriber's monthly, and throw it behind a cash wall for $30 (twice as much as a monthly subscription).  

 

Bottom line:   Blizzard just openly bent over their existing fan base and did something that most go to jail for!

Very awesome!  I want that to happen to my character...

I was thinking of giving this game a chance but I realized it would simply be a waste of time. WoW just seems like the better game to play, the main reason is it has been out a lot longer and has so much more content and an upcoming expansion. Fantasy MMORPG's are evolving and moving beyond the traditional generic EQ/WoW type gameplay and WildStar is nothing but a complete WoW clone with slightly different gameplay, it is nothing revolutionary, it is just a different take on the same formula.

Wildstar, being a sci-fi mmo with Fantasy MMO like classes (Warrior etc), I don't think it is worth playing at all, better games with better graphics like Everquest next will be released within 1-2 years and the upcoming WoW expansion will add even more content and new features to an already established MMO.

Just watch, once EQ:Next, Project Titan,  Warhammer 40.000: Eternal Crusade, Black Desert Online and The Repopulation are released, generic crap like WildStar and ESO will have a major decline in player numbers and Project Titan will be the final nail in the coffin for these rip off generic MMO's. All the MMO's I listed have innovative features and Project Titan will for sure.

I will enjoy watching WildStar and ESO die when these games are released, it is 2014, making these pieces of Junk generic MMO's with little changes to an already repetitive formula that over 1000 MMO's have followed is simply unacceptable, out with the old and in with the new.

ESO AND WILD STAR CAN BURN, by late 2017, these games will be practically dead and a 4 year life cycle for a MMO is pretty pathetic, considering a way less popular game like Star trek Online (a game I currently play) has been going since 2010 now with constant content updates and probably has a good 10 years left with it, why? The core player base is dedicated while the core player base in WS are mostly former wow players and it is the same with ESO (partially) once you all see these better MMO's released, the player decline with these 2 games will be massive. The type of people who are playing ESO and Wildstar are not die hard fans of the lore/universe (more so with Wildstar than ESO), these are the type of people who have all played WoW and other MMO's in the past, once they see something way better, they will neglect ESO and Wildstar, leading these games to their coffin.

 

Would love to see Wildstar and ESO die like Tabula Rasa but I should not get my hopes up. Still, I bet the servers will close for both these games within 6 years, the new MMO's indevelopment (ones I listed above) are simply gonna destroy these games and steal their player base and with a behemoth like blizzard releasing project Titan, probably in late 2017 or early 2017, then there is simply no hope for ESO and Wildstar!

Your clearly trollish, hyperbolic thread was already reported enough times when I tried to report it that I know it'll be seen to by a mod and locked.  However, I still wanted to reply before that happened by highlighting the illogical parts (oh, and your entire post can be summed up in the orange highlighted area).

 

You start a thread by stating that you didn't even give the game a chance, didn't even play or try it.  Then you continue the post by exaggerated claims of it being generic, a "WoW clone", and -your worse crime- lumping it into comparison with the feature incomplete TESO.  And then your thread continues for like 5 additional paragraphs where you fanboyishly fawn over potential future games (which we have no idea how those will play out at all) while wishing over and over again that Wildstar will die and burn.     You. Are. Wrong.

Hard and Easy are very subjective depending on player skill, build, gear , play style etc...

Some players are capable of soloing group content while others struggle with a single mob below their level.

Happens in almost every MMO - I remember a lvl 50 warrior in EQ1 back in 1999 having a hell of time soloing a single lizard man in temple of Cazic Thule - while a 29 bard could kite a group of them without getting hit once.

Just because a MMO is hard for YOU, it does not make it hard for everyone else.

Well,...this game is hard for many in certain areas.     I have soloed some Prime mobs that are Wanted targets for 2+ players, yet I've seen many people struggle to get it down 10% before dying a horrible death.   The thing is I'm using every cooldown in my arsenal, including a health injection (potion).   Only a few have I managed to kill on the 1st try, but have either died or booked it the hell out of there in the last nick of time on many of them.

 

The game's Adventures and Dungeons are nightmarish, to say the least.  I'm already sick and tired of tanks that just stand inside the large telegraphs thinking that their Armor or whatever will just "absorb" it;  seriously this isn't the game for newb tanks who just face-tank.    Me and a guildmate were laughing our asses off after killing StormTalon on what seemed to be the 8th attempt with some PUGs due to the tank continually standing in the lightning while being focus of his 2nd phase attacks. 

 

Oh, and don't get me started on those Witches in Kel Vorath; they alone will make a group rage the *bleep* out of there like there was no tomorrow.

Don't really understand this show or why Blizzard had it happen at all. Horde players probably outnumber Alliance a good 3:1 or 4:1 if the population was combined, so of course the Horde side would win. The voting was skewed from the moment they decided to have this "content".

The amount of "free publicity" to their game during a content dry spell is why.   This little show was on each week for several weeks on many major gaming news websites.    It's basically a commercial that's ran, but cheaper than running a commercial.   Get it?  As many bad things I can say about Blizzard, I can admit that their marketing team is top-notch grade A and should be given an award of some kind (really wish that GW2's team or Wildstar's team would learn from them).

Just think how good of a score this game will get. You had a broken game get 7. If a game is at least playable im guessing minimum the score has to be 12 out of 10...

Be realistic, it'll get a 9 or 9.5 out of 10, with questing being the reason for the point removal.  If the questing of the game was a mirror of Guild Wars 2's Dynamic Events and Hearts system, this game would/should have earned a 10 out of 10.

I doubt their reasons will be the same after the first month is overall and then they will be posting reasons why they jump ship !

I encourage anyone here to post a single game ncsoft has published that either didn't close down or go free to play , with a horrid approach to freeium mmo market. The. See the similar treads that sw:tor left when people got excited for that ! And trust me the Star Wars series has more fans than blizzard has playing wow . It's a simple fact that mmos gear the game with hype and a lot of allure . In which falls off around the first month , then the common player begins seeing what it is , starts to realize it's basically the same candy different wrapper . Quest-level-dungeon-pvp etc... Take away the hype , and the fact that 40 man raids will not work in the end I predict a massive fallout in wildstar within 12 months and free to play model introduced around 2015 . Glad I gotten my money back considering ncsofts track record . That and the fact I have invested to much time , money and effort into wow just to play something else in the end . Don't believe the hype ! Look at ncsofts past and you will see where this game is going

Have you ever played an NCSoft game to experience it, instead of developing an opinion based on 3rd party reads on the internet?  Because from what I read in your post you've never touched their product and instead are a WoW/Blizzard fan who just spouts hate at other products.

 

Oh, and here's 3 games at least:

  • Guild Wars 2
  • Guild Wars 1
  • Lineage 2
 
The actually rescued City of Heroes from Cryptic before they could shut it down and ran it for many years before eventually NCSoft didn't see population vs. cost purpose.  Still, the angry fans that are stating that they killed their precious game neglect the simple fact that they saved it for a long period of time in the first place.
 
 
This game [Wildstar] has had it's Beta testing going on for over a year now.  The Beta was even shut down for several months while they revamped many aspects of the game due to feedback from the testers.  UI changed to UI 2.0 was done based on feedback, suggestions, input, and collaboration with the fans.  This game shows NO pattern to SW:TOR at all when it comes to how it has been handled and/or how it will release (instead, I'd point to TESO as having close similarities based on having a highly popular IP, short testing period, and very little feedback applied).
 
Wildstar has given players ample time to try the game for FREE! (10 day Open Beta) amongst the previously mentioned extended Beta and even Beta weekends.  They dropped their NDA nearly a month before TESO dropped theirs, and it still is launching after that too.  Press members have been given tons of access to the game as well.  CARBINE HIDES NOTHING from it's fans and audience as they want people to be fully aware of what the game is before investing it it.   So,...there's that....

lol.... you really dont.. also dont excpect to get scared while playing this game.. just a counterstrike laggy version.

Thanks for the heads up.  Glad I'm not wasting the DL time/speed on something that is otherwise inferior to the dozens of F2P shooters out there (TF2 still #1).

 

P.S. A truly "scary" only multiplayer FPS is Natural Selection 2.  When the power is out and the mutated aliens are in the dark as your flashlight pierces the blackness; pure adrenaline rush scary.

The zones I mentioned are not in your list. . To be honest considering your heavy support of ESO I am also wondering these threads you are starting about Wildstar about ten minor issues and this one among others are meant to sincerely discuss the game or show it up .

Oh this is so true.  Starting ludicrous threads and when people call them out as troll posts, replies claiming to be "a fan" or "have purchased the game".    But both this thread and the other thread you linked are NOT by fans, but instead by biased haters who spread misinformation, hate, and lies about the game. 

 

There's also this thread (http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/632/view/forums/thread/413070/Lots-of-different-content.html) which says that there's "not a lot of content" and is basically a conspiracy theory that the developers held a ton of content back so that they could release monthly content (instead of the truth, that the content is still in development and is being worked on, cleaned of bugs, and tested to be as polished as the rest of the game).

 

What's interesting is that his threads (about 1-2 every other day) started popping up heavily within the last couple of weeks, after it was a complete realization that TESO was a rushed POS and that Wildstar is going to possibly get PC Game of the Year based on the amount of content and polish that the game is launching with.  Coincidence?  No.  Instead a campaign of lies, hate, and trolling against Wildstar in guise of "questions", "fan interest", and other masks to hide the real truth.
