OP  11/26/12 7:40:51 PM#1

I've read quite  a few other post's about TSW, and most have hit it right on the head. 

I started TSW pre-release via the ARG's and Twitter. I pre-purchased game and had the pre-launch. However as I read many forums on other review sites, I knew NOT to buy a lifer sub and man am I glad.

I DID enjoy TSW the first few months, did most zones, grabbed lore, ran dungeons, but I like PvP and enjoyed the area called "Fusang" until 2 weeks ago. Then a non-pvp Dev decided to just update the pvp side(Fusang) with PvE elements. Also, threw out huge rewards to players thinking(or NOT thinking) that that would bring in more players to PvP. So once the word got out that a player didn't even have to do ANY pvp and just afk, he/she got rewarded, huh? what you ask, YES! So I'm sure you can imagine how the gameplay is now,. Oh yea, they messed up the player faction balancing too. They tried to merge the servers based on general population, not pvp player population. So all that heard rushed into Fusang and went afk, collecting many many "marks" for doing absolutely nothing and gearing up to L33T status very fast.  TSW brought in a Dev , a PvP specialist (lol) from Conan to look at the issue right after this(10'ish days later). So with total population imbalance it is virtually impossible for the other 2 factions to even get a chance to take over a facility. There has been little communication from this new PvP Dev and many players are fed up and quitting.  I am not renewing my sub either. I also read the recent post on Funcom hireing a company to scout for possible buyers, wtf.  

So any players concidering buying / playing TSW, go ahead if your a RP'r or a PvE'r, (limited content) and do not like pvp. BUT, if you do enjoy PvP> stay away! 

Imo, this game was pushed out way to soon and it is showing now hard. The releases have bugs( I know, what patch doesn't) that will drive you crazy. The crafting is"still being developed", and falls short. And whatevcer you do , do NOT play a Dragon, they really got the shaft on content and is the lowest population.

I wish TSW all the luck, it is a great looking game,  and hope a company will buy it to get away from Funcom. I also hope that Funcom get's out of the game business. 

I had to post this as i feel like I wasted 6 months.

Saw an article on massively about the PvP problems, PvP seems tacked on in the game.

Well, I thought the game was lacking and combat felt cunky. I am not sure how this game is in top 3... its far from top 3.  I had very little to no fun with my time in game, the story was bad, the gameplay was bad, the questing system was bad.  Plus it was riddled with bugs...  Honestly I probably couldn't and wouldn't play this game if it was completely free.  Its just a bad game, and its SAD a mmo fan base would put it in the top 3.  Maybe its why I have lost all hope for the MMO market.

I guess thats a troll post, I could actually report that. If you come with such arguements, give them fact. If you can't go back to your beloved game and stop crushing on other games. "bad quest system" I could laugh.

That's fine -- some will like it, some not.  I'd be interested in hearing more specifics though.  But he did at least say why he didn't like it.  Others feel its quite polished and fun.  /shrug

He didn't just say his opinion, he just bashed it down without any facts.

Funcom has never done any good PvP and frankly I dont even understand why they still bother, they seem to never be able to get it right.

And yet people regularly do PvP in TSW and have fun with it.  Not perfect by any stretch, but enough there to keep it interesting.
