I can probably tolerate Themepark PvE. PvP is the most important thing to me. If they have an RvR system like DAOC, I'm interested.

I guess we differ on what you consider open world themepark.

To me that is like daoc or vanilla eq, no instancing huge open world.

As opposed to a linear on the rails themepark best described by swtor probably.

i know it's been a LONG time but i played eq1 at launch and vagely remember zones being broken up by loading screens similar to GW2.. also remember the "zoning" took forever as the brb zoning phrase was common.. again my memory is little foggy but don't remember it being a more seamless open world like vanguard

EQ1 had zones but they were not instanced

 

EQ1 was more open than GW1/GW2 zoning

- you would be running in an open area and a zone would load with no indication that a different zone was ahead

(such was Freeport -> West Commons,  or Freeport -> SouthRo)

 

to compare other open mmos, they have zone transitions too, where you may momentarily lag, but no loading screen

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

Themepark, and it's going to kill the game so many people have been waiting for for years.  Such an amazing IP for a sandbox to be made, and they can't even make it a sandpark.....

Has nothing to do with being cool, just themeparks now days , some people reach max level in a day or 2, what fun is that ?

 

Themeparks get boring fast, cause nothing you do in the wrold matters, and most are single player games really untill you reach endgame. 

 

Maybe some people want something different ?  more immersive ? more fun, more challenging, more community ,  ect...........................................................................................just NORE !!!

True challenging game play builds community, whether it is through PvP, PvE, or some other game mechanic.  Many games have lost the grasp of this, and build more and more toward soloable content through out their game.  Which is why we see a trend from games that had truely amazing communities, to games that have more of a meh / selfish community.  

When you can solo 99.9% of the game.  Why do you need to be nice to other people?  What reason is there to protect your good name?

Themepark is a vague term and people say it like the game will not be fun or something.

 

How about we get rid of meaningless terms like themepark and sandbox and list the features of the game instead?

I've read/heard from people that have played the game that the combat is very Skyrim like. Just with a limited hotbar. Mouse buttons for each hand. Hold mouse button to build up a power hit using stamina.

Skyrim was pointed in the right direction, no need to take steps backwards, pigeonhold classes, obviously a downgrade in graphics...sorry now I'm just being negative. I'll just STFU and go back to Skyrim, my bad.

lol, well at least it will be easier to play with a gaming mouse :-). See, look at the glass as half full lol

There Is Always Hope!

Not sure what is the obsession with themepark/sandbox and some people. The game has to be fun and that's all that matters.

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.
