    Well I am hoping its a true MMORTS, 3 faction, PvP focus -  as to the comment that is must a facebook game cus blizzard said they want it to be social  well thats just silly, all MMO's are designed to be soical doesn't mean you need a facebook account to play them.

    Next year I am sure we'll all learn what Titan is until then we're just pissing in the wind.

    History revisionism for the win.

    WC3 was not recieved well. It sold good based on WC2, but reviewer where pretty negative about it. (I mean, not outright hate, but in the 80% area, which is pretty bad compared to how high profile the game was.)

    Please dont use meteacritic as a counter to this. Most review there are form many years later, after the DoTA craze had hit. Also printed reviews were still the primary medium of serious reviews back then.

     

    Thats actually what u do. WC III RoC was recived overhelming well it was a huge step from wc2 and totaly different unlike what we see nowdays with cheap SC2. The game had through the border good reviews. Even if it had 80% 10 years ago that meant  a good game unlike nowdays were SWTOR and GW 2 get 9/10 reviews because they have big companys behind them. (It had actually reviews of 93% all over the place)  Dota craze was in 2006 no one changed the reviews for a 4 year old games by that time.

    I think wildly speculative threads about the contents of a black box just create false hopes, wrong-headed expectations and will simply lead to a whining down the road that whatever the project turns out to be, it just doesn't fit the dream that fans built up in their own personal echo chambers.

     for me, StarCraft2 was a dissapointment after the legacy of Starcraft back in late 90s

     

    im basing my opinion on solo play of SC2 compared to SC1

    solo play of SC2 was shorter missions than SC1 but with more movies

    - the overall SC2 story was shorter too

     

    SC1 had a rich story among 3 factions that was engrossing for plots and turns and lore

     

    for multiplayer,

    SC2 is probably comparable to SC1 (minus player maps) but i was disappointed with single player SC2

    Could not have been more different for me, there was so much more going on in SC2 single player than SC1, each missions had some kind of unique element like that one on the larva planet where you had to move your SC's off low ground when the larva came, the mission you had to complete while moving to the right ahead of a heat wave, or the missions where your units would ice over every few minutes, or the mission where you had to hold out from zombies at night.  So much more variation. Add in the amourym research, the A or B mission choices the zeratule missions.

    I honesty do understand why people think SC2 didn't do anything new... the only expanation I can think of is they never played it.  Here's the angry joe review http://angryjoeshow.com/2010/07/starcraft-ii-review/ even he loved it.

    Now we're off topic.

    IMHO, Starcraft 2 was more made by the players than blizzard. Look at the history, I only play sc2 for aos and phantom mode. Neither of which are made by blizzard, except for the most basic (units). It's been several years, no new units... And the next expansion is just going to be more of the same except for like 3 new units in each race. Come on, I am not paying 60 bucks for 3 units, I don't know how people are excited an ultralisk can burrow... Can't they just make all this a game update? Do they truly need an entirely new box for 60$? No. Sc2 is just a scam, a big e sport scam.

    game immersion is a very personal thing

    for me -  Starcraft2 and Diablo3 lacked the game immersion their predecessors had

     

    I used to buy Blizzard games blind - i didnt care what the game was because i always enjoyed Blizzard games

    starting with Starcraft 2 and continuing with WOW Cata and Diablo 3 (all of which i have played)

    i no longer have enthusiasm for Blizzard games

    I was thinking at work last week about Titan and what it may be.

    I don't ever believe there will be a wow killer but at some point there will be a game that has more players than wow and I believe Titan will be that game.

    This is what I think Titan will be.

     

    -Blizzard said it would be a social game. I'm thinking Titan will be directly tied into Facebook.

    -I think Titan will be a online city builder. Player housing,shops real people will run,events,neighborhoods,farming,tailoring,architecture. Deep deep deep customization.

    I think titan will be a mix between second life,farmville and yoville.

    I think titan will either have one huge server supporting millions of people at once or a few servers supporting millions.

    I think titan will have a standard camera view behind the player like wow.

    I think titan will have custom skins using our webcams for our toons faces and our webcams to video chat while playing titan.

    I think titan will use webcams and microphones to give our toon voice in game and animate our toons mouths.

    I think titan will have a military option for pvpers along with open world pvp for players that join the military.

    -Bases will be set up around the world to capture cities and towns.

    I think Titan will have one faction.

    Titan will be very deep in customization and I believe Blizzard will set a new standard in server population capacity.

    It's going to be a FPS MMO set in the Call of Duty universe.

    I cant help but feel your expectations were are too high if not unattainable, both D3 and SC2 continued on from their predecessor adding in new features, modern game design and were fantastic games in their own right.

  • ShakyMoShakyMo BradfordPosts: 7,207Member
    D3 had a let's make as much money as possible from the rmah design, and sod the game play.

    Greed killed diablo as a franchise.

    How you can say it improves upon d2 is beyond me.

    Whatever it is... it won't be anything new. Blizzard never tries new things, they just water down old ideas and sell them to casuals. WoW was boring and old mechanics wise when it launched, but since it was marketed at non MMO gamers it didn't matter.

    Not going to try to refute it, because you know its true?

  • AusareAusare adamstown, MDPosts: 850Member
    Not going to refute it because commenting back to wow haters is pointless. Don't you have some other crap game to con people into thinking is good?
  • ZigZagsZigZags Modesto, CAPosts: 328Member
    Blizzard hasn't made a good game or expansion in years. Most of their original talent is gone so I dont know why you expect Titan to be good.....and if it is like at all what you described...I wont be playing it.

    Now: Skyrim
    Later: ?
    Played: M59, UO, EQ, Runescape, DAOC, SB, EQ2, WoW, EVE, Darkfall, AoC, FFXI, FFXIV, WAR, SWTOR
    BOYCOTTING: EA/BioWare/Origin/SOE

    "WoW haters" ? You have to create an entire class of people and deem them "unworthy" to talk to, just to avoid anything critiquing a flawed game?

     

    Besides, this isn't about whether or not WoW is good, it's about whether or not WoW did anything new. Which.. it didn't. that's kind of what its known for.

    Facebook game?  LOL No way.

     

    I expect it to be a major stinker.  It may even go the way of Starcraft: Ghost.

    Blizzard are like bioware, used to make good games but are now riding on their reputation. Just that bioware started the decline earlier.

    I expect Titan to be swtor bad.

    Titan is suppose to be very different from Wow, I frankly dont think it will do nearly as well as Wow did.

    On the other hand do I expect Blizzard to release Wow 2 2016 or so and that will do very well indeed.Because if Titan dont deliver to Activisions expectations Wow 2 is the only sure way for them to earn insane amounts of money, and frankly would I be surprised if they havnt put a small team on it already.

    Revealing Wow 2 before Titan is out on the other hand would be a bad idea, some of the Blizzard fans could decide to wait for it instead, and it might hurt Wows expansion sales numbers so they will do it behind locked doors for now.

    Of course, that is only me guessing, but every game Blizz made since 1996 have either been a sequel or had one later besides Wow and Wow is their greatest success. Anyone thinking they will do sequels for all game except the one that made them really rich needs to think some more.

    I agree, Cata & D3 have hurt their respective franchises at various degree's and stung Blizzards overall rep, I honestly think that it will be up to Titan to restore Blizzards bulletproof rep, but its going to have a harder time doing so since I think Blizzard used up a lot of its "free ride" or "leap of faith" selling power up on D3 and its a real shame because Blizzard gave us excellent games in the form of 3WC RTS + DotA, SC & WoW + TBC  =/

    I never understood why gamers would like to see a WoW 2, IMO maybe Blizzard should do a switcheroo by making a "Warcraft 4" & "Universe of Starcraft" I think that would up their fortunes since a lot of Blizzard supporters keep asking for a SC MMO. =)

    blizzard didnt make DOTA

    they also didnt support the people who made it

    which is why they now work for valve not blizzard

    I know it is a Mod made from WC3, I just didn't bother/lazy to elaborate thats all =)

  • TheocritusTheocritus Gary, INPosts: 3,747Member Uncommon
        Actually I think WoW is the only game BLizzard made that was really outstanding....The Diablo series is Ok but nothing great and was never a fan of the starcraft stuff.....As a result, Im not expecting much from whatever Titan is.
  • ThanesThanes St. Augustine, FLPosts: 182Member
    You would think it will be amazing.  The company that begat Wow with unlimited resources all diverted to this grand secret project with the epic name of 'Titan'.  What else can you say?   Anything else would be speculating on life after death before establishing if there is life after death.
