    Would have been nice if you'd had a poll option to just see the results.  After all....the people who AREN'T playing are more in need of seeing the results than those that ARE.  I've gained nothing from this thread, when I could have at least seen some opinions on recommending the game.  /shrug

    yep, those that want to see the vote have to vote yes/no to see it and thus the vote becomes useless :p

    But, since i'm feeling naughty and want to see the results, i'm going to vote yes, because i like everything i've seen so far despite not in early access yet. So, you can discount 1 vote image

    I think your poll is going to lean toward "YES" due to the conditions you placed.  Not tooooo many people are going to have done all of that and then played release. . and not like the game.  Mine was a yes though.

     

    EDIT:  All things being rational of course. . you will get haters and fanbois either way.

    I would recommend this game because so far it's been the best PvE experience and I've played MMOs since Everquest. Investigation missions especially are complete goodness.

  • botrytisbotrytis In Flux, MIPosts: 2,567Member

    Will not recommend this game to any friends. Saw too many bugs, too many graphics problems and the game play was not to my liking.

    Yep, you are right. If you recommend game to someone, you have to do it with some evidence. But, talking just about TSW, it have good future with it darkish atmosfere and mystery. I played one beta event and I enjoyed every minute of it. Will have to wait and see in couple of months if there is long term future for this mmo.

    Voted no because I personally didn't like the system enough to warrent a yes and since there was no middle option or 'check poll' option to look at. Really a bad poll you put up for it since people's opinions vary and not only could it be a 'yes or no' but also the grey area inbetween people might align to. 

  • Chrome1980Chrome1980 LondonPosts: 511Member

    Yes, i already recommended it to friends.

  • AceundorAceundor OsloPosts: 482Member

    In order for this poll to be taken a little more serious i would suggest that you correct the name of the town to Kingsmouth.

    Would recommend to RL m8s and clan m8s..

     

    Awesome game so far..

    I said no, but its not a complete no, if someone was after a game to fill a month or maybe 2 I would say yes to them playing this game, but if they are looking for a long term MMO I would say no.

    I am aware all the content can be done as many times as you like but once you have played through an area once going back and doing it again is not fun, this plays like a single player game for me but with grouping for dungeons and pvp.

    It still feels a bit disjointed, not as much as SWTOR but the game doesnt feel like a world just a series of zones for you to work through one by one.

    A definite yes from me. This game actually requires me to use more than one neuron... It's rather refreshing. Most mmo's treat its players like machines. The only thinking they require from us is how to grind most effectively. If you play this game with one neuron only you will hit a wall early on, and hard at that. You'll die badly, again and again all the while flaming the game for improper balancing and overpowered mobs. While the ability wheel gives a lot of choices you actually have to do a lot of thinking in order to create a build that works. The abilities you chose have to complement each other and you have to choose a goal for your build (dps, survival, heal, tank etc.) Its quite fun to experiment with, and once you get used to it you'll love the variety it allows for.

    The only gripes I have with the game are the bugs in some of the investigative missions (Initially you'll think something is wrong with your findings, then spend hours searching for alternative answers, then guiltily look at forums feeling somewhat dump, and lastly realize that the quest is bugged). The bugged investigative missions are mostly known by now so you can simply avoid them till they're fixed, there's plenty to do until then). These bugs are not game-breaking, they are annoyances that are quickly forgotten (at least for me). Bugs are really inevitable in a game of this size and complexity, and I believe most will be eliminated within a month. Already a lot of bugs were dealt with on the second day of early access. So if bugs are a problem for you wait a month before buying.

    Best time i have had in a game EVER! I played wow, aoc, rift and swtor, but this game kicks ass!

    Single server world - 3 factions :) Asia vs Europe  vs US basically, but you can choose which you like.

    Mature community too, you should see the threads on the forum. People go out of their way to make others' playing experince better. Love from me to all of them.

    Best graphics and gameplay i have ever seen.

     

    My favorite, The ability wheel. Push one button and be a totally different character! Easy to spec bad, but when you "get it" it's just the best thing to have happened to mmo's in years.

    The dungeons are as good as end game raiding in WoW. I did inferno and loved it.  Can't wait to do the next one.

    you mean "Kingsmouth"?  i wonder if you've played the game.

  • HybridvampyrHybridvampyr GalwayPosts: 61Member

    I made the mistake of recommending this to my Girlfriend and now she spends more time playing this than she spends with me....This means i have to play more so i can spend more time with her. Its such a hard life!

    But yes i have and still am recommending this game to many of my RL friends.

  • HellSingsHellSings Toronto, ONPosts: 185Member

    Depends on the type of gamer, but generally yes.

    I'm from Portsmouth! I better ring my mum and ask her to start looking out for zombies and fog.

    Seriously though, I would recommend at least giving this game a try. I'm not a heavily experienced MMO player. I've played City of Heroes, Champions Online, Star Trek Online and All Points Bulletin. I have tried and failed to enjoy Guildwars, TERA, Global Agenda, Age of Conan, Rift, SWTOR.

    I gave GW2 a go in beta and really enjoyed it so i'm glad I bought it. I started suffering what they have called on these forums 'The GW2 Effect' where you don't want to log into your old games anymore. At the time my friend was telling me about TSW and I thought it would be a wooden, boring kill 10 lawyers kind of game. Boy was I wrong! GW2 will now be my second MMO because TSW truly captured my imagination. Granted the theme is one of my favourites, but the missions are the most interesting and varied I have experienced, the story and voice acting imho is 10 times more engaging than SWTORs, i've never had as much fun in PvP, the atmostphere is on par with the first Silent Hill games, and I just can't wait to log in each day.

    Yes, but only to a very limited number of gamers. For example, among the 20 or so gamers I know, I would recommend it to 3 of them. I love this game, but I know it's not for everyone. I would certainly recommend to the people I want to play it with and who I think would appreciate it.
