    I'd personally rather have interesting games to play then just have the same game thrown at me again and again. At 34 I've got plenty of years ahead of me, and I'd rather the next decade not be like the last.

    Unfortunately unique and interesting games get zero attention, no matter how often and loud most players scream 'We want something new', sales seem to indicate that they just want the same old shit painted a different colour.

    Well OP, I have to agree to an extent. I'm not a fanboy, however, I did follow the game somewhat and played the beta. I wouldn't go as far as saying it is a WoW replacer for me, but it is very addictive. At first I wasn't to excited about the art style, but the more I play it the better it suits me, and I flow into the Looney Tune feel of the mix of gameplay and music.

    I picked up the Explorer Path, and coupled with the insane amount of quests and things to do, it is definitely worth the price. I will have to play more to see if it is sub worthy!

    I think the only real way to make a huge change like you want, and/or we all want, is through 3D gaming using something like the Occulus Rift. Pretty much everything has been tried and failed imho. The genre has been squeezed more than a Kardashian, and I don't see what else can really be done! /shrug

    I've enjoyed WoW and like the way the game is presented and managed, but, I've done it to death, seen all the content and there's nothing new until Christmas.

    Wildstar is more of the same, only better than WoW in my opinion, what what I have seen so far.

    I'll buy the next WoW expansion and there is every chance I'll play both games, because they are both my kind of game and that's why I like them both.

    People will always hate, but I wonder why they spend time on the forum of a game they don't have any interest to play?

    I remember reading something very similar with the launch of WAR, when everything was shiny and new.  And people wonder why a lot of MMO players are pessimistic Buzz Killingtons.

    But no, I hope WildStar is good, I'm interested in trying it myself.

    Played: DAoC, AC2, WoW, CoH, GW, GW2, WAR, AoC, Champions Online, Rift, Dragon Nest, Vindictus, Warframe, Neverwinter, Dungeon Fighter Online

    Currently Playing: Dungeon Fighter Online Global

    Waiting for: None

    I love it too, i was missing a good game like this for so long.

    For those that don't like all the quests etc. no worry you can start to level in pvp only at level 6 ( yes thats only level 6 ). Then at 15 it is the adventures, then at 20 the dungeons.  

    The only thing i would suggest is to get 8k rep with your starting towns. That is all, so as you can see it is very little questing involved. Once that is done, you can buy your missing AMPS from the quatermasters of each starting towns to complete your talents (amps). There is even pvp amps been sold by pvp vendors if needed and the gear is also sold for almost each brakets of levels.

    So no need to quest other then to get your amps, hope it helps a few to get pass the quest thing.

    I'd probably consider buying Wildstar, if it wouldn't be for two reasons:

    a) being able to buy ingame gold

    b) always the same weapon

     

    That players can buy ingame gold is really annoying for me. When you see a player with a nice item, do you congratulate him? Well, maybe in certain other games. In Wildstar? He probably bought it with real money. Same with everything else.

    And always the same weapon is also boring in my opinion. I love it when I get new weapons in other MMORPGs. In Fallen Earth I might have crafted a sniper rifle and am really looking forward to try it. Or maybe I switch from ranged to melee weapons? Same with WoW for example. Maybe I had this sword for quite a while and got used to the clanging sound when hitting well armored targets. But then I finally found a nice two handed hammer. I'm rewarded with different animations, different sounds, a totally different feel of combat. Always having the same weapon type just seems boring...

     

    I'm not saying that Wildstar is a bad game. I'm just saying that those two things really turn me off. I mean, yes, I understand why the developed decided to do that: money. Which is logical, since those companies have to earn money. Sticking to just one weapon model saves lots and lots of work, and thus money. And buying ingame gold? Now that's a huge income source as well. Still... Thanks, I stick to other games.

    Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

    Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

    Standard themepark MMO with a sub, long attunement requirements just to raid, stupidly large raid sizes and isn't graphically superior to most MMO's....enjoy the shiny and new, it will wear off like all the others and we will see in 3 months who's really left.

    Done everything? Certainly, but only some half-assed attempts followed by terrible desing choices, bugs and lack of meaningful content.

    Glad you found something you enjoy playing...  The game is not for me but I do enjoy reading the views of fans.

    Too much negativity in forums these days....

    there have been only 3 mmos where i stayed longer than 3 months -  EQ, EQ2, GW1

    (i'm not including return visits)

     

    WOW at launch back in 2004  - i was bored after 6 weeks

     

    no idea if Wildstar will entertain me longer than 1 month

    but it's fun for now image

    Glad you have found a new home.

    Personally didn't like it. Admittedly I only gave it a few hours but I just didn't enjoy those few hours at all. Too cartoony, too frenetic, too generic but that is just me.

    There are all sorts of games out there and I am sure the games I like wouldn't interest you either so being able to have different types of games for each of us is great.

    Have fun.

    well i didnt like it either in betas so i dont play it. But at least it has a normal release so far, with no gamebreak bugs etc. Also its good on this is going to deliver, just its out of my taste for various reasons (graphics/themepark/heavy PvE focus/oldschool quests etc..). Anyway i wish good luck to developers and have fun to the players : )

    New home with tight sealed doors and your keys being able to open door only randomly few times per day. :-)

    So far this has been really fun.  I never had a mind control type class that I liked until the esper.  Pvp is addicting as well.  Looks like I am going to have to roll an alt to see the story.  I'm almost level 17 now and haven't done a quest since level 7.

    Finally.. after 9 long years... they released the cloniest of WoW-clones, out-cloning all the other WoW-clones.

    Finally.

    So a game that has millions of subs has been re-booted and made much better.  That will please a lot of people then.

    If it works, why try and be different and then fail, like every other MMO that has had a sub.

    WoW was fun but it's had it's day.  This game is superb and gives me no reason to even think about WoW again.

    first of all LoL to this comment it made me laugh a bit, and beat me to it.  the op's quote its open for a ton of funny meme generated from it.

     

    that aside happy you found game you liked but honestly your commend at OP made no sense you finally found a game that essentially is "updated" version of WoW and giving a ton of praise like that makes it silly.

     

    P.S-

    finally after 9 long years of a lot of crappy WoW clones being released...........they released another WoW clone that will make me feel like im playing WoW all over again.....

     

    sorry couldn't help it lol.

    Nothing like that feel of a new mmo amarite ? New world to explore, adventure awaits !

     

    ..too bad it never lasts..

  • FuryVFuryV Member UncommonPosts: 431

    That's because you are still way too much into that WoW game, there are others out ther,e but if you keep on buying the same type of game, yes, then you will never get over that Wow game.
