This plus an attention to detail makes a beautiful game.

    I think this thread has a more accurate title and it was first...

    LOL, they have a long way to go.  Anyways I would have thought they learned with AoC the bad of having a high end graphics MMO.  Requiring your consumers to have a high performance rig only shirnks your consumer base and really is bad buisness practice not to mention all the endless techical problems one encounters that AoC had.  People have a smooth running decently appealing game not some high quality game that results in numerous headaches.

    On a side note it really is the artits that brings things to life not your technology.  They need to take note of GW2 if they are going down that route.

    They should start by firing their art director. The faces in characater creation are horrendous.

    This is the thing, The beta client is damn well optimized. My 5 year Dual core pc runs DX11 plus full tesselation at 40-50 fps. I couldn't ask for more. Matter of fact I'm holding off on my upgrade. I think working so closly with nvidia for so long made this possible. Hell swtor I couldn't break 20 during combat.

    I'm hoping the character creation is greatly expanded by launch. (Not holding my breath, though.) I think more visual options would at least help to a degree, even if you dislike the art style. That said, I didn't really have a problem with the art direction of the character graphics. I simply felt like the dearth of customization options was a massive disappointment for a game without levels and clothing without inherent stats.

    I've played MMOs where I disliked the character aesthetics more. I'd give examples, but the subjectivity of this topic is sure to bring a rain of fire down on me if I do, heh.

    I find the world in TSW to be very well done.

    The characters need work, but the setting is beautiful.

    Environment and big ass monster wise they ate already there. Player characters need work though, less plastic skin and better animations especially that awful jump

    It's a lot more AMD friendly than Aoc, I'm getting nice 50fps using high on hd monitor with my decidedly mid range 6870

    Their only looking for 490k subscribers. Im sure that market share could be comprised of people with decent to high end systems.

    Err system requirements are on a par with gw2. Tsw uses your video a bit more. Gw2 uses your processesor a lot more. I get higher FPS in tsw beta than gw2 beta.

    Animations and character creation screen are placeholders.

    The "plastic skin" thing however won't go away. its a conscious design decision and part of world design in most of Ragnar Tornquist developed games like Dreamfall.
