Great reaction by Carbine. I like this game and the devs even more as time passes

 i completely disagree, you can totally get immersed in a game that has not got realistic graphics, infact it helps to a large degree sometimes. With a realistic approach, you expect everything to be realistic, so everything that does not look real, brngs you out of the immersion zone. Games that are 5 years old will look bad compared to new ones. Styleised graphics though stay more contempory for a longer time, and if you accept the world your playing in, get invovled with the characters, read the lore etc, you can be immersed in a game that does not look realistic. immersion does not equal how real something looks, its how connected and into a world you become.

Completely agree.

 

It's not just about the graphics - it's about the entire package that makes the game immersive. Aesthetics. Games like Zelda and Super Mario Bros. are extremely immserive despite not having the best graphics and being over a decade old. Lord of the Rings, WoW and Guild Wars all have outdated graphics but in reality look just as good as games being released today because of their aesthetics.

The vanilla Final Fantasy XIV probably had the best graphics in a game at the time it released and was completely dull and I couldn't be immersed.

The art style they use in this game could probably work to their advantage.

Patch notes are one thing, but leaking gameplay video is a whole other beast.  I was reading about some 20 minute video that got released showing some Elder Scrolls gameplay and how negative the reaction was to it.  This is the kind of publicity a game under an NDA DOESN'T need.

I love the way they handled the leak.  Psoting about the social contract and trust, releasing the patch notes, then rewarding the fans by spending two days answering questions about the patch notes on fansites.  That was a pretty cool response. Most companies ignore everything bad and treat the fans as if they do not exist.  These guys acknowledged the problem and tried to male something positive out if it by engaging the hardcore fans in conversation.  Small things like that make me root for games and developers.

I think the patch notes are pretty cool.  I do a lot of testing and their notes would indicate a pretty thoughtful test environment.  That bodes well for quality upon release.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

but if i m into raiding i hate action combat system.

 

Actually Wildstar offers both types of combat.

First they developed the classic system of tab targetting combat. The type of combat we have been playing for 15 years now?

Aside that they also developed the action combat system.

 

So both sides are represented and offered an option.

Everybody wins. :)

Also, as some have said in this thread, it's not the patch notes that got people excited. It's the fact that Carbine actually acknowledged there was a leak (unlike other companies who try to hide the beta leaks and pretend they never happned) and figured out a way to take something negative and turn it into a postitive experience and get feedback from their hardcore fans over at WildStar Central. Just the fact that the Executive Producer, two Community Managers, the lead PvE and Econ guys, amongst other Carbine developers spent the past two days fielding a Question and Answer session on everything related to the patch notes and seeing how the community reacted to them was great. It showed that Carbine is very open to their community and willing to listen to their players.
