1. No raids- No raiding yet and all we got was a measly 7 or 8 missions and a rehas of Nightmares of elite dungeons already in game.
2. Silly sub fee but cash shop oreiented which borders on P2W- TSW simply doesnt have the content to justify paying a monthly sub.
3. Pointless zerg pvp- PvP is supposed to be the strength of TSW with its 3 factions but in reality it is extremely shallow. PvP basically consists of running around in zergs and capping wells and facilities to no end for no reason. There is no actual purpose to TSW pvp. No ladders, rankings, and no way to build a rep because you are given a generic appearance so nobody knows who you are. On top of this the battleground style PvP is extremely lacking consisting of one shots and CC trains not to mention hour long ques for arguably the only decent BG ElDorado. The entire system is grindy by nature, the only way to be any good is to have purple gear and that takes for ever to earn.
4. No endgame- TSW endgame= TSW arguablly has the best level up in the MMO genre but once you get to QL10 gear your back to playing a WoW clone with zero raiding, grindy dungeons and no decent way for a DPS to get into Niihgtmare dungeons. Any game that forces you to play a different game at endgame or level cap is a flawed system.
I really wanted this game to succeed and be great but I cant lie to myself. The fact is that TSW is shallow and generic. Its more fantasy then modern age, I am sorry but Elementalism (Wizards) Sword/Hammer (Warriors) just feels to fantasy based imo. Something that we have seen a million times. TSW is really just WoW minus raids and good content. Luckily GW2's excellent atmosphere and questing system which is unique and difficult due to the downscaling to the appropriate area plus the open world feeling of the Dynamic event system that leads into Zone wide Meta Events is superior to anything TSW can do and will easily take the place so many raiders clamor for. GW2 is the next huge MMO tha twill revolutionize the genre and bring about the innovation and epicness all tired themepark MMOs lack cutrrently. I wont even have to wait for another MMO like Planetside 2 because it isnt even an MMO, its a persistant FPS that offers nothing to the MMO genre.
Waiting on: TESO
Next Flop: Planetside 2
Best MMO of all time: Asheron's Call - The first company to recreate AC will be the next greatest MMO.
