So Ive heard a lot about JD and I dont really know what to make of it, I do however know what I dont wnat, so of course I know what I do want in a game, That being said, I have only one important factor I want to know about, that is really important to me:
-PVP I am a huge fan of PVP, Ive played the hardcore GVG in GUild wars and had a blast! now I know im not expecting the pvp to be THAT good BUT, I want to know one thing about it:
Is Pvp. . .Pay to Win or based soley on skill & Group Dynamics?(a.k.a teamwork)
Why? well I DO have money BUT, usually the asian grinders that are f2p have some fun ideas for pvp but. . . . basically once you get to cap level where you PVP in faction.seige. guild battle wars etc. . . Newer players are at a SORE disadvantage to other players who have been here longer and spend more money, and usually what happens is that just to compete you would have to spend THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of dollars just to be on a level playing field.. . . .
And honestly, it would be better to play a decent sub game or save up for a better computer to play guild wars 2 when it comes out, as opposed to have the option of spending 50 thousand dollars or spending years to get all the equipment necceesary to have fun in pvp
I have done the whole *starting late to an asian grinder mmo only to spend 6-7 months to get to top level only to find out I need to spend two more years grinding to get the special skills equipment etc just to enjoy the pvp aspect of the game* at which point decided to quit rather than worry about trying to get all the gear to play a game....
Maybe playing all these types of games for years then playing Guild wars which was a great departure from that *spoiled* me for a bit, but I like what I like, I like MMos I like leveling and questing and partying and once I get to the end of the game, I LOVE to pvp! I dont need to be a in game but I would love to be able to let my actually skill shine, rather than hav ethe game be a display of how much money I have given to Perfect world Entertainment. Also since games that make you Pay to win or even compete are usually not even worth paying for (i.e contenct only consisting of *grind* and *moar grind*...which is not content, just laziness on the developers part to make a virtual skinner box as quickly and cheaply as possible) Id rather know now, if its really going to be worth my time to play. . .or will it be a waste of time.
Finally, if you are the ones that say hey this game is play to win, could you recommend me a great game that I could try out? (either sub or f2p is fine)
Thanks for your help and input!
