Oh I don't get the combat comments, especially the "gw2 guy" saying you can just stand there and spam a rotation. No you can't, you have to move, if you stand and spam you will die, lots. Another reason why I probably find the pve in this more enjoyable than any other mmo I've played, you kinda have to pvp the mobs.

agreed... They did make all abilities capable of being used on the move for a reason... If you saw my video I play pve similar to pvp in how I move around which makes combat a ton more enjoyable than most other MMO

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Dunno if it's the best MMO ever made.

 

But it's certainly the best MMO I've ever played!

There is already reports saying that TSW´s areas are empty late night which is not that great sign since the game is so new. Don´t get me worng now, TSW is a really great game, however it is not the revolution that could reach or even be near the title as the '' best MMO ever made, to date ''!

Great, unique and interesting but it is still another '' kinda '' traditional MMO in many aspects. WoW was the last MMO that '' made '' a revolution and changed the MMO-industry. The question is now, when will the new '' revolution '' come ? 

The real challenge for this game will be when GW2 launches. How will TSW hold the attention of the MMO-public when the most hyped game of the year ( nd prob on of the most hyped games ever ) will be presented for the millions of fans around the globe ?! There´s a chance that GW2 may not be '' THAT '' great, or even fail like '' Warhammer '' but this chance is so low after what the have seen in the betas. So far Anet have promised .. and made these promises a reality.

We just have to wait and see ..

We can only hope it will survive GW2. Everquest 2 survived World of Warcraft. (but I think the list starts and ends there for the mmo released with WoW)

 

Personnally, since SWG only two games were capable to grab me for more than 20 minutes. Diablo III and Global Agenda. I still love video games, spend tons of time on forums, I just don't like playing.

However, TSW did very well until now. I enjoyed each minute of the time I spent playing it. I'm only scared of the end-game. I hope it won't be like TOR. (I never reached it, got disgussed before.)

To the OP. Ask yourself the same question in 90 days. Your answer may be radically different. I remember thinking to myself how many MMOs were "the best MMO ever" in the first few weeks....only to eventually find enough flaws and get bored and move on. We need to wait and see how quick Funcom fixes bugs, adds new content and exceeds player expectations. That analysis takes 90 days minimum.

There is a solid foundation for sure but you'll always have those people that compare it to games that have been out for a decade and have had years of content updates.

What worries me is this game and its systems have amazing potential... but I felt that way about AoC.. still do. That game had so much dang potential to be an amzing game and they completely dropped the ball.

If Funcom continues to fix bugs, expand on current features and continue rolling out content as well as some important features not in the game atm (LFG tool etc) then this could be a serious hit.. speaking long term.... or history/funcom could repeat itself and subs could drop 75% in the next 3 months.

Ill wait and see. For now its such a nice change im having a blast. If Funcom plays it right I'll be around for a while.. if not I'll move on to GW2.

 

Hate seeing games that have the potential to be something amazing... crash and burn. I have my fingers crossed for this one.

Not even close.

The most you do in a (modern) mmo is fighting, and the combat system just sucks here.

Thats why Tera is doing so amazing atm?

There is much more to an mmo than combat and even tho TSW does have the generic themepark tab targetting combat that can be found in 98% of mmos out there it has alot of other key features that seperate it from the rest. No its not revolutionary in that aspect (combat) but how many successful mmos are there currently with more innovative combat?

Better combat was in AOC (imho) and it become niche.. most say it failed... and Tera... another example.

GW2 combat will top it for sure, but for skill system it doesnt come close.

 

Thing about TSW is its a breathe of fresh air. People are sick of the same old same old and they gave us something new. isnt that what we have all been begging for?

Best no, but great game nonetheless. Launch is not the time to determine its worth, lets see what happens in the next 6 months.

GW2 is tab lock target based also? How is that any different?

Oh dear, can a moderator add GW2 to the banlist of the words forbidden to write outside the Guildwars 2 forums?

Yes, I have a question. When did you turn into a nutbar?

7/10/12 7:29:47 AM#116

It's a great game to many, good to others and some players just dont get it or absolutely hate it.

To become the best mmo, it takes a test of time to prove itself.

I like the game cause it breaks the high fantasy crap mold, the market is just saturated with wannabe WoW's with a twist.

I think it is second best MMO ever made right after EVE Online. The first theme-park MMO that overtaken WoW for me. And Ive played every single decent online game on market.

To people who think combat in TSW is horrible, you have to play more and get more skills to love it. For me attitude to combat was changing in this progression: 

Dafuq is this shit -> Well, not that bad as it looked -> Its really nice actually -> I love it!!

There was and is not best mmorpg yet.
Some have a high level of craftmanship and stand out partially of the crowd.
But its divided over a handfull, maybe up to a a dozen mmos that excel in one part and be only average or even below in other parts of their game.

TSW is very good though for what it is and i expect to spend some of my mmo time in it for a long time to come and got me a lifetime account.

I think TSW is itching where a lot of folks wanted to be scratched... and this is a good thing.  I'm glad folks are enjoying it.  It's not my cup of tea, but it looks like a winner for plenty fo folks.

No, because it's not even really an MMO. The vast majority of the game is instanced and singleplayer.

On top of that, while it has some interesting quests, a LOT of gameplay is pulled from WoW still.
