Too your last comment I would have to agree I need to make my character mainly in mmo's look as unique as possible so that I stand out and plus gives me I guess more of an emotional attachment to it.
Yes alot of mmos could use a bit more features when it comes to creating your character. I wil spend a good amount of time creating mine as well.
Character customization is a must for all the mmo games I play. The static characters are horrrible IMO. I got to have that individual feeling to my character.
APB: reloaded has a good customization if you can find the advanced button on the character creation screen. The game it self takes ALOT of getting used to (high learning curve).
Nope. Less money on questing in favor of char. customization? No way :)
I like content, and mostly play max. zoomed out, so character is not an issue. I mean I never click random (especially not on name, kudos for darth giggles btw), but after I made a toon I don't care about the looks anymore.
/clap /clap /clap /applaud congratulations.FINALLY Pokket tells the truth as it is ,F2P is just a misleading venture that devs are trying to pull off.IDK abotu anyone else but in real life when someone tries to mislead you,we usually turn and look the otehr way and never lsiten to that person again.
Perfect World is like the McDonalds of gaming,they are churning out gaming left and right like an assembly line.They do what nobody wants?>>>>saturation,quantity over quality.
Character customization should be in the gear and the stats,not in the visual becuase 95% of your character is covered up in gear,this is FACT and been that way since MMO's began.
I've always had problems with Character creation these days because I find that i spend too much time creating a character. I don't likk too many choices and thats what put me off TERA, Guild wars 2.
And I have a feeling I will have the same with the new Elderscrolls online, hope not but I'll see.
Character customization, I want my toons to look like none of the ohters, it is importat to me to not have my toon like like all the others. This is the thing I hated the most about swtor. All the toons liked like each other, and all the armor was the same, you could tell at endgame who was who by looking at the armor.
Now lets talk about the fremium, and I hate to call swtor a fremiaum, it is more of a rip off. You only get to play 2 toons if your so called free to play, I had 5 50's most of them in end game raid gear so I will not be able to play any of those at all, unless I buy unlocks. To me swtor has put in tons of roadblocks even more so than turbine did with lotro and dnd, and soe did with eq2. They really don't want folks to come back with the kind of plan the put out.
Perfect world, uggg what can I say they turn out a lot of junk.
I can spend a whole day creating/deleting my char. I find (too often) that the character that I make doesn't look the same in the game.
I think we should choose gender/class then go into the game itself to customize. Customization should be done on a component level...sometimes I want a pony tail with bangs...sometimes not.
MMO's should focus on the customization systems...my mount should be customizable, and my costumes, housing, pets (names pls) etc.
When a game provides the tools to the community to customize and make the game personal, then they will ensure longevity and a loyal fanbase.
I want to customize my character in EVERY game I play. EQ2 has been my favorite for customization as well as CoX.
Two thumbs up for the Firefall t-shirt btw.
Nice video Pokket. To join your discussion here about character customization.. I do like to make my character look unique, and I certainly appreciate it when they have lots of options. Some games do go over the top.. but what frustrates me most is that a lot of games that DO offer customization don't show it off enough.
I always think back to UO. UO's initial character customization was very basic, however clothing and items that were in game (often made by tailors) were very awesome. Also with the use of dye tubs you could look very unique, and change the color of all of your items. You also had the 'paperdoll' which would allow players to view what you looked like by double clicking your character.
Not very many games offer things like this and it's frustrating. What's the point in having deep customization if noone can really even see it? Just my 2 cents..
I just can't take her seriously. I really try, but I can't...
Character Customization is extremely important to me in MMORPGs. I thoroughly enjoy making characters and making them look fitting for both their class and roleplaying appeal. I do agree, making that AION took it a tad too far. Cryptic has a very nice and robust customization reputation. I hope Neverwinter's character customization is spectacular. It NEEDS to be. It's D&D!
How can people seriously want less options when it comes to character creation? Mind is blown.
The sooner companies give us as many options as possible, the better. Anything short of at least Aion's character creator is a step in the wrong direction.
And i don't want to hear about diverting funds from this to other facets of the game. That's a copout and everyone knows it.
I can spend hours on character creation and I'm a bloke. In fact I'll often realize a good day or two into the game that my character is fugly and go back, delete and reroll...
The best character creation for me was Aion.
Aion and City of Heroes had the best CC by far. Some of it was lost in Aion because the armors still overrided most of the customization, which made end-game folks look alike again. CoH was phenomenal because their looks did not rely on what you were wearing. you could be truly unique if that's what you wanted. Champions Online also attained this to a great extent.
NOTE: Guy here. and I can spend hours simply customizing and not even playing the character I created.
I'm a fan of a detailed C-gen, but not just the face body type/height matters too.
As for Aion, yeah it goes to far, unless your playing Toonville.
I'm glad I watched this vid first ...as I was just considering one of those SWToR 'freemium' accts. Now I won't waste my time.
re: Character creation ; my very first MMO was SWG preCU / pre NGE and they totally spoiled me. I took so long to create my character that my room mates gave me a hard time however my avatar was repeatedly approached and told how awesome she was which made the effort totally worth it for me. I also loved that in SWG even after the CU and the NGE there was still the ability to pay another player to change your hair or make-up or even do cosmetic surgery and change your whole look. The later introduction of cosmetic armor /clothes that could further individualize a character only made the game experience better IMHO. I have been disappointed by this aspect of every mmo I have played since
As for those who think there is no point, >","< ...you are obviously missing out on the RP aspect of your MMORPG!
Well well, in a galaxy far far away I used to play an image designer character for some time.
I always matched my zabrak tattoo and makeup with my gear color.
One of the best time I had MMO wise, was spending like nearly 2 hours fixing this dude walking carpet ; communicating with text and my lame english.
In the end the wookiee went from a generic ball of furr to a deadly looking creature. The trick was in the eyes ;)
Before that the guy didn't really care for his character look.
After I was done with him, he told me he never imagined he could have such a character and was now very proud of its look.
Now think: long term subscription.
