I watched a few videos and the Total Biscuits play and after watching I'm trying to understand why anyone playing current available MMOs anyone would jump into this.
A) First off, in the Total Buscuit Video, he asked how would you differentiate this from WOW. The representative's only responses were:
1) The Combat
2) The Changing Builds
If that is the best answer he could give, this game is not the holy grail these forums are making it out to be. A combat only focus didn't work for TERA and though I think GW2 is a good game, changing builds doesn't make it the worlds best game either. I stopped at end level and had no desire to continue playing.
The graphics/ artistry is going to turn off anyone who prefers more realism such as AOC, GW2, Rift, and hopefully Elder Scrolls Online once people realize the leaked video will not look as graphically unappealing as what that idiot playing showed by turning down all of the graphics settings. This to me looks like an Ipad Game. Kids will like it though. Yes, I believe graphics do matter in todays age. I have a powerful computer and I want something that looks nice. If people want to hang onto a 7 year old computer with a GT 7800 thats your problem.
C) Same issue that plagues other games. Mobs just stand around doing nothing. Liveliness of the world will depend on players. A good modern MMO must have a world that feels alive and that includes the NPCs.
D) Despite the ability to explore, me being an explorer, it doesn't look like a pretty enough world where I would want to.
So am I missing something that is a shocker feature that says, wow, this is awesome, I haven't seen this in other MMOs, let me jump to this game? Anyone?
[Mod Edit: Edited Title] OK fine. I admit it was provacative lol
There Is Always Hope!
