edit: played the game for some months. very solid game with great quests especially this one in london with that girl...

 

stopped playing because it didnt feel like a real mmorpg

Didn't know there was a competition going on. It is my impression of a game nothing more. And experince of every player is going to vary. However, no surprise he didn't bother to reply after my last post though. Accusing me of distorting 'facts' in an opinion peice. lol

However i did post the screenshots to show that lag problem is more widespread and is not just limited to few .

You're never going to get anywhere with these people. Everything that i've experienced with the TSW community is nothing short of toxic.  You're not allowed to say anything that might be construed as slightly "against" TSW.  I think it's a great game to avoid like the plague. 

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

For me, this game is a blast:) It has some problems, but I love it none the less. I have played this game since early access, and I have never had any significant errors or disconnects or crashes. I run it on a pretty good system, so maybe that got something to do with it. GM support is also great, they are very helpful and friendley. I think that with TSW, you either love it or hate it, there nothing in between..

2 I like. I like that its not steadily camping mobs and there's hard stuff you have to avoid. Also sounds like you picked up that cursed talisman from the cave, yeah that zombie will keep following you until you fry it on the church doors. But imo hard is good.

5 sounds like a pc or internet provider issue, game ran smooth for me on my mid range pc, never had a crash, the servers were really good no lag problems. You do need a better pc than for the likes of eq2 and wow, tsw is a much more technically advanced game. I'm suprised you had worse performance than swtor though, that runs terrible for me with more than 10 people on screen.

2 I agree with, 4 also to a degree, although you do get a lot of options in how you dress your character as you play.

I never said anything about hardware performance issue but i was talking about latency and server disconnects and freezes caused by high latency. I get constant FPS of 40 in game which is quite good.

If i was alone suffering from this problem i woudl call my internet provider asap  but when after 5 to 6 seconds of freeze suddenyl the general chat looks like this..

Player 1; LAGGGGGGG

Player 2; Omgaddd lagggggggg..

Player 3; Did everyone freeze? for f*** sake FC get your shit together..

Player 4 ; Arggghhh i died to lagg again......

You know you are not alone.

Also the zombie i am talking about is specificaly related to End Of Days event and not the one related to cursed talisman. it stops spawnig once you kill it and pick up it remains but problem is that it is red to new players.

I really felt that i was being trolled by FC when that red zombies killed me in 4 hits as soon as i got in Kingsmouth feeling all tough and  cocky with biceps flexing out of my sleevless top.

From where are you playing? I play from Norway, Europe and never experienced any lag. The game runs very smooth for me.

This game outshines GW2 in every aspect, so while it may have some flaws, it's still the only and first choice for any mmo gamer at this point.

 

The mayan event will go away in one day, and the excellent game it is will remain, with the best dungeons and most innovative setting I've seen in years. I do not care about PvP and I  have not tried it so I can't speak of that. But honestly, the feelings and sensations I get while advancing through deep, complex and intelligent plotlines in TSW is unmatched by any mmo up to this date. It's about one zillion times better than "kill 10 boars" or "grind repetitive stuff to fill a heart".

 

Edit: I'm yet to encounter significant lag in TSW after around 80 hours of play.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

Logged in today and the monstrous lag has gone away. Not sure what happened with their server infrastructure, but it was terrible. Glad it is fixed now. Although there was no official notification from them that they fixed it, or that anything was even wrong in the first instance.

It doesn't "outshine gw2 in every aspect"

It has better dungeons
Better music
Better voice
Better lore


But....
Gw2 has much better pvp
Has a bigger world
Has more leveling content
Has best crafting of any modern themepark
Has better animations

These sort of dishonest blanket statements don't help your "cause"

GW2 wasnt about grinding repetitive stuff to fill a heart. You could fill most hearts passively while doing dynamic events, or avoid them entirely.

TSW is a good game, but it isnt better than GW2 in every aspect. At its heart its just a common themepark with interesting quests.

80 hours in.... you'll soon realise how limited the TSW 'world' is. It boils down to 3 themes, The Savage Coast, the Desert, and Transylvania.   The GW2 world is far superior and less disjointed.   The GW2 world is also dynamic, which TSW is not.

More inclined to say this is where I stand on it.  My preference for TSW has more to do with needing to take a nice long break from the fantasy genre, the love of the setting/storyline and thought needed in the questing and ability wheel.

these are all opinions, but for me

 

tsw has by far the better questing and more REAL content

tsw pvp is fine for me 

gw2 world is big but not really big, just a lot of same within the same borders...

 

bo games are fine, but i would never compare them. i liked tsw more, i dont like the weapon bound attacks nor am i a fan of underwater combat. i prefer the freedom of tsw, but on the other hand, neither of those games can really keep me playing longer.

 

waiting for the sandbox games...

2.)  Fusang PVP

I am an illuminatti player and had no idea that i joined  faction which owns Fusang in Group C  24 hours a day. Yes 24 hours constant farming of white marks for PVP gear. And how it is done?

Join Fusang (queue time is anywhere between 40 minutes to one hour), rush towards a facility, stand in there afk as you get your 3000 White Marks, leave fusang, convert them to Black Marks, rejoin queue..rinse and repeat.

On ocassion if you get 4 or 5 payers from Templars or Dragons zerg them with 15 players and camp their spawn point. This is the state of PVP in Group C. I have heared that same situation exists in Group A only difference is that Templars own Fusang 24 hours a day.

Because of this imbalance, Templars in Group A and illuminati in group C are geared to the teeth in 10.4 which leaves other factions in their groups with no fighting chance.

There is no buff for under dogs and at most you can get is 2 or 4 white marks in 3 minutes where as the over populated faction can farm upto 140 marks in 3 minutes. 

 

I'm Dragon and this is the main reason I don't play. I can't stand the imbalance and the results in equipment going to a dominant faction making that imbalance worse  and worse.

 

Otherwise, there is a lot I like about TSW. But Fusang needs to be better than it is now, especially for Dragon who are the underdog in every group.

It's maybe not a good move to give them this first impression on the game. Luckily it's only a few more days. (and for higher players the event is fun I think)

Your first point is solved, and not only because he event is gone now, FC addressed your exploit concerns as well:

So everyone got the title and the pet. :)

no, there is a big difference. in tsw you can still choose out of a lot of attacks and passives from everywhere, where in gw2 you have just the same skills for the same weapon combination

Yes i understand your problem. That is why dragons are now mostly sticking to SH and ED (if it ever pops). But still its been 20 days now and the 'disconnected from community server' error is still there making Fusang pain in the ass. Feels like FC is still on holidays.
