Just a few things I found that I hate so far

bezadobezado Palm Harbor, FLPosts: 1,148Member

1. When you log out you go right back to the login screen where you have to put your info in again.

2. Control Wizards look ridiculously stupid the way they look in casting animation. Holding that sphere and when not in combat it floats on side their heads. Seems really dumb to me and quirky, not a fan. What dev made it like that needs to be kicked. =)

3. Mail - Character@handle WTF is this crap? I sent something using just a name and it sent but never arrived. Guess you got to do that dumb stuff character@handle is lame.

4. Not being able to simple /t (name) to send tells.

5. PVP scaling. The system scales you up to level but this poses a huge imbalance for players who for example pvp at lvl 20 and scale to 29. Players who were 29 who entered are stronger. The PVP is not balanced as of yet. Also the PVP is very linear and boring at the moment. I think they hashed this together just to put it in for launch because it is really lackluster.

Other than these 4 issues I think the game has lots potential to grow and polish. Nowhere near the polish and ease of use that WOW has for an example.

EDIT: 6. Grouping is so painful in this game. The instanced maps make it really difficult to get into a new area if your party members are not there to enter with you or are in another zone. Also when you invite a friend to party and they are in another map instance you got to go to their instance before you can enter the next area. This gets annoying extremely fast and you must coordinate to be in the same map instance before entering.

7. Picking up items while in a party can get annoying. You have to use F to pickup items, but it also opens up the inspect info window on other players if they are near the items you are using F to pickup. So in a party if everyone is near you then you constantly keep accidentally getting that info window to pop up on those players. I guess you can do it slowly but who has time when picking items up, everyone hits F repeatedly.

8. Party issue again. When you are with a friend or others in a party and finish a dungeon instance and exit then sometimes you don't go into the same map, and you got to go to their map by right clicking on their name in group and go to their map instance. Also it has a cool down timer when you use it.

9. MAIL can be lost forever. If you send an item and don't use correct name, by accident if you leave one letter out or something then it never gets to the person or come back to you. In WOW and other games the system checks if that person exists and you can't send it. In this game you can make up a name like logiojgdjgoir and send and it will send it like it's going to them, but you know that name does not exist or account.

10. Auction House is broken. Level ranges do not work and you can't tell what the lowest bids are on a particular item you search for because most have same name. The auction house needs to be fixed.

    PvP is nowhere near as imbalanced as SWTOR was when it first came out and in all honesty it is way more balanced that WoW with its twink Rogues. I think the PvP is very well balanced unless you get zerged which common sense will tell you you need to block or dodge so that doesn't happen, so yeah I disagree, pretty balanced imo, especially considering it just launched.

     

    Otherwise the only thing I agree with in your post is this:

    1. When you log out you go right back to the login screen where you have to put your info in again.

    That is indeed truly annoying.

    1. Ummm...You do know what log out means, right? Try the exit button I guess? I'm not sure what you are expecting a logout button to do for you.

    2. Gotta agree with you here. I dont like the running animation of the wizard either, its a lil creepey.

    3 & 4. This is to circumvent character naming issues, other games, such as Diablo, have measures such as this. I still have to figure out an easy way to handle that (the chat/mail features)...

    5. Agreed, though I didn't expect DnD to be a PvP game. Its more PvE centric. Hopefully the scaling gets better for those who want to pvp, but I personally would like the arena/battleground style gameply to take a hike. It has no place in this game. For RP purposes, I could see a PvP dungeon set or expansive open world pvp map being fun.

  • GolelornGolelorn Hiding From Social Media Peeping Toms, ALPosts: 1,099Member Uncommon

    Yep, hate the log out procedure they have. Also, PvP sucks if you're a melee, since you can't swing and move. Extremely imbalanced, and not well thought out.

    Other than that enjoying the game.

    To go to the character select screen like every other game, not the log in screen.

  • RandomDownRandomDown Louisville, KYPosts: 145Member

    1. Yeah there is no "log out to characters" like the other guy suggested trying. Exit Now just closes the program. You truly do have to log back in to change characters.

    2. I'm not terribly fond of the animations. But in regards to the thing floating. Its supposed to be an Ioun Stone iirc and thats what they do. Float around the magic users head. Little large from what I remember about the lore.

     

    5. Yeah pvp scaling can be a bit of an issue. However at level 60 there is a larger pvp thing, Gauntlgrym, which is 20v20 or something similar from what I remember reading. I'm not sure if there is anything except for Domination up to that point though. And I KNOW there is more than one map, but its almost always the same map. Grr

    1. Not a big deal.

    2. Don't play one

    3.It kinda sucks but its so people can use the same name.

    4. don't even care.

    5. I love the pvp and its pretty balanced as its not as bad as jumping into say wow's pvp as a low lvl. I think its a blast and gets my blood pumping but I'm also pretty dang good at it. I find it takes a bit of skill, you need to see whats coming and move. The CW's are the toughest as they will lock you up pretty good then a rogue comes along and eats your lunch.

    I feel the great weapons fighter is a little low on dmg at low levels but I have seen them get better above 25.

    Also when your level gets bumped up it opens your spells to that level and nothing else so the higher level players with better gear will hit harder but you can use skill and take them on pretty easy. I do it all the time.

    So the OP wants a character select button...got it. Sounds like a good suggestion for Cryptic, no?

    1. Yep agree, annoying. They should have a 'log out to character select' option.

    2. Disagree. I love the animations on all classes in this game.

    3. Love the @handle system. Means I can pick the names I want to use, rather than putting X's or stupid spelling in to get the name I want.

    4. Never really had a problem with the system.

    5. Never had a problem being competitive fresh into a tier. The scaling system seems to work well. In fact, at lower levels I think they scale you up too high, because I hit like a truck in the first half of the tier (probably to compensate for less skills).

     

    Note: You listed 5 issues :)

    Yeah up until 30 I just let fighters (both GWF and GF) hit me without bothering to move, since they were so weak. But after 30 they start hitting hard, and GFs become nearly indestructible in 1 on 1s (except perhaps for Rogues / GWFs).

  • sync00sync00 Fairfield, IAPosts: 7Member

    I'm with you on points 1 and 2.

    My biggest gripe with the game is the launcher. I get goofy error messages like "could not even attempt to authenticate". The only way I can get consistently get the launcher to work is by running it on a freshly booted system. I rebooted several times today just because of this.

    So you didn't find not being able to choose your own zoom distance insanely frustraighting?  I've sorta been used to that feature since RO.

    No, I find camera issues that come with variable zoom distances when inside dungeons to be more of an issue.  A static camera distance goes a long way into fixing thAt.

    lol, that was one of the few things I actually liked!

  • MardukkMardukk Posts: 1,556Member Uncommon

    My biggest issues are design issues.  It's very linear and there isn't much of an open world.  I'm shocked there aren't more MMO people taking issue with this.  It's possible this game is attracting the Diablo/dungeon crawler crowd which likely don't want virtual open worlds and freedom to do things.

     

    Honestly OP, I don't find you issues with the game to be a big deal.  They appear to be easily fixable as well.

    Just to comment on this one I believe if you type the persons name you can send them a tell that way.  I'm always getting that come up for me when replying to someone in general chat and it trys to send them a tell instead of put it into general.  Try it and see.

    The game is still in beta, why not send some feedback to them? Make it reasonable to read though. :P

    There's very little to complain about, just nitpicking.

    1. Yep, that is annoying and it would be a very convenient improvement.

    2. I don't mind the ball animation.  It's the 2 finger sausage pose on elves and tieflings that looks idiotic to me.

    3. and 4. - I like those.  It minimizes confusion for me.

    5. PvP in the game is what it is.  It's a side game that is offered for variety.

    It works fine for me.

    Added a few more in an edit to the main post. Some pretty annoying things that need to be fixed.

    Yeah I do but it isn't exactly game breaking since the camera is set good for what it is. Now if it was a different camera angle that was locked then I would hate it or further back.
