    ill buy this game it looks great :)

    The wait is what kills me...use to be when you heard about a game it was only a month or two away now the wait is so much longer!!!
    Like 3 or 4 years, right?
    With the game being so early in the development phase, there is not even any guarantee that the final product will look even remotely like the concept art etc. which is effectively, all that has been shown so far, its far, far too early to be talking about this game in any meaningful way. :/

    Pretty much! There is a good reason that companies generally announce games that are going to be out within the next calendar year. People just don't have the atten...

    No that is funny...

    Let's hope things turn out better than that one did.

    On hiatus from EVE Online since Dec 2016 - Screw off-grid PVE boosting changes

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Don't just play games, inhabit virtual worlds™

    I see that the developers from Everquest 2 and Everquest Next are creating a new game called Ashes of Creation 

    Which is exactly why I will not help fund it. Fool me once...

    perhaps but I moved on years ago.

    I do feel somewhat sorry for people who are still sitting on the sidelines refusing to see the positives in the gaming market and just hold on for years that EQ or similar is going to sweep in and save their day with a huge magical hit.

    You talk as if people refuses to play new games on principle, while the actual truth is people play new games but they quit out of boredom after a while.

    The fact that you adapted to the new interpretation of MMORPGs means that it just suits your play-style.
    But as you probably already know, people have different tastes in food, music, movies, women/men, games and of course MMORPGs, so the fact that you wish everyone would accept that your play-style is the real deal and everybody else has to "grow up" and move on it's sad.

    yes..I think they refuse to play the games on principle (people not playing early access games out of principle? say it aint so!)

    and no I do not believe those people waiting for the next eq2 play the games I am talking about so they do not have any point of reference at all as to if they are enjoyable or not.


    at least that is the case here.

    Looks like you have yet to discover the mmorpg.com hype meter :lol:
    Or the Ashes forum here on this site.


    Or at the VERY LEAST the search feature.

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    Just wait for the game to come out, it's got plenty of funding now so no reason to back it honestly.

    I don't think anyone avoids EA games on principle, maybe but in my case it's based on my experience with early access to MMORPG's (alphas, betas etc) and the experience has been found wanting, at least for me.

    EA in other genres may be the best thing since sliced bread, I wouldn't really know but when I did play single player games they were usually complete titles.

    To me it shows there is interest in a game of this nature. As there is with Vanguard. 

    EQ1, EQ2, SWG, SWTOR, GW, GW2 CoH, CoV, FFXI, WoW, CO, War,TSW and a slew of free trials and beta tests

    The guy that started the company did so because he was sick of all the new games being pay to win and focused on pvp with very little pve. For me this sounds great....
    I've seen so many MMOs promise, but in the end they get too greedy or return to the methods that people hate (like what Blizzard announced the other day, of locking lore/story behind the next mythic raid. With the idea that folks can just watch it on YouTube -- that's one expensive video! People aren't going to pay to not even have access to content anymore. As the gate in WoW isn't getting people to raid, is getting humans to play [and not those bots that now join raids like they do in battlegrounds]).

    Not in any hurry to play another MMO, especially newer MMOs. They're all 12 button macroed mice and agility with PvP as the cheap "danger" (lazy developing at that, they don't even need to program an AI for it, as PvPers are the script); or mobile 8bit platform junk I got away from 25 years ago.

    Time and money would have been better spent on upgrading EQ and content for EQ2. This may not end well.

    only EQ is still property of DBG while AoC is being developed by a different studio. And with DBG at the helm, only bad things could come out...

    Yeah, but EQ2 was the game that actually added itemshop with P2P first so the question is if he tells us the truth or not. 

    Hopefully have he realized it was a bad idea but I'll wait and see...

    Yeah this game will probably be p2w. GW2 proved that early promises are just smoke and mirrors.

    The guy in charge of the studio creating [mod edit] is doing for the fact that so many games are pay to win and he wants to go pack to the way it use to be.

    Talk is cheap at this stage......EQN was talked about to these ridiculous heights, and to be honest I am not sure the game ever really even existed

     Wait you mean developers from a game that never launched, signed up to work for a cashcow run by a juice sales guy? I'm shocked.. 




    Nope, not really.
