POLL-How long before Blizzard copies GW2 questing design?

    Never because it would cost too much and take a complete design over haul which would likely upset many of their player base.

    Further *real* innovation, look at World of Darkness and TSW

    I guess you didn't play D3.

    Blizzard doesn't have a clue what they are doing anymore.

    TADA! Dynamics events.

    You're confusing hearts with dynamic events. They aren't the same thing.

    A little more specifc is needed.

    If you mean "Is WoW going to have GW2 style questing design?", then I would say it's unlikely, considering that's what WoW is pretty much centered around and the game is ancient by MMO standards. They MIGHT be able to alter it to make it more GW2ish to steal back the people who left for GW2, but I wouldn't count on it.

    If you mean "Is their future MMO Titan going to have GW2 questing design?", then my answer is that we don't know for sure, although if GW2' questing design becomes a new standard, or at the least gets enough attention, I wouldn't put it past Blizzard to copy it and "improve" it with Titan.

    First off, you might want to fix your grammar.

    Secondly, as much as I don't like the guy ,WoW, despite it's sharp decline during Cataclysm, still holds a hefty player count, and GW2 is not out of the woods yet. And for all we know, Blizzard COULD end up pulling off another lightning in a bottle act, though I personally doubt it considering WoW's storm was a one in a million deal.

    Revamping Wow to GW2s questsystem would just be too much work. They already made one Cata, revamping the game another time just wouldnt be a good idea.

    But I do think next Xpac will have some dynamic events side by side with regular questing.

    Titan on the other hand is a MMOFPS, not sure how they plan to tell you what to do in there.

    Really? Can you link a source?  I thought they comfirmed it as an MMORPG earlier this year.

    Not at all, hearts are regular quests with the only differences that you dont need to take them and that there usually is several stuff you can do to complete them. They are very static and always up until you complete them.

    DEs are only up a certain time and if you fail them there will usually be consequences.

    wows peak time was actually 2009 and Q4 2010, where it held ~12 mil subscribers, so 2004 is somewhat irrelevant. There was also quite some competition back then as well, runescape, Lineage, Lineage 2, EVE Online, EverQuest (and EQ2?), well lots of games you dont think about but were there. I doubt wow will make a comeback or anything as its an old and slowly dying giant but GW2 isnt exactly perfect either. It's a good themepark with some new features but that's about it. Very pretty though.

    Go to the water plant in queensdale and stick a heart there.

    Heart reads"Defeat 20 bandits in 3 minutes and 55 seconds"

    They are the same mechanics except SOME of them have branching endings, And are repeatable.

    How long?

    Let's hope never.

    GW2's so called quests are mind numbingly boring.

    Oh, you meant the hearts, where you get all the quests... I see what you did there.

    I haven't picked up a single quest in GW2, but I have saved a farm, taught cows how to fight, helped a village in need, fought a dragon, and a series of other fun things. The hearts aren't "hubs" the hearts only point you to the action. In between where you are now and that heart there are a number of things that could happen. You could be distracted by something shiny that then explodes and centaur come raiding out to take an outpost; dynamic event spawns.

    So yes, the hearts where no quests can be seen...i see what he did there as well.

    You could have waited until they release it, so that you could be pointing your finger shouting "They copied GW 2" since it is what you would probably do considering what thread you just made.

    I think they will not copy this design. Why would they?

    The way GW deals with quests is different, but not significantly better.

    Titan has been in development for what...like 5 years already or maybe even more. I doubt they will now try to copy anything. They say themselves that the game will be something different...lets wait for them to tell us how different before making threads like this.

    Some of the most enthusiastic GW fans should leave Blizz alone, in my opinion. Just play your game and have fun doing it...

    Waiting for L2 EU Classic

  • TheIronLegionTheIronLegion Columbia, SCPosts: 269Member
    So...lets see. people in this thread who don't like hearts, probably never did any dynamic events outside the hearts and probably think that the hearts are the only places to do things at. Amiright? If so...you're dead wrong and I suggest you actually try to play the game for what it is before spouting nonsense. The hearts aren't the only thing in the game.

    Actually, after a long look on the net does it seems like Titan will be a little in between.

    Combat will be fast-paced, eye-catching and natural, without the restrictions currently present in most old-fashioned MMOs. In this way, it will resemble what goes on in modern first person shooters. 

    http://titanfocus.info/page/index.html

    I guess that makes sense, but I also saw Blizzard mentioning a huge amount of well made quest.

    I'm derping out trying to understand what you meant by that.

    I was asking about the whole "without the restrictions of MMOs" thing in that link.
