Hey there! I've been lurking around for the last couple of weeks trying to find something to peak my interest but it's not going all too well, hence I hope some of you guys can point me in the right direction.
little background: I started out with mmo's when I was younger playing tibia. a topdown old 2d mmo game. After getting a pc that was able to handle things better I stepped over to wow a few months after it came out. Played that on and off over the last 8 years. In between I tried some rift, swtor and gw2. Although none of them seem to keep me interested. I get bored easily unfortunately.
Positives in the games:
gw2 - combat/graphics/pvp
WoW- streamlined pve, easy to get into groupplay, plenty of people around, great control over abilities
Rift: dynamic content, diverse classes, easy to switch around roles.
swtor: Story, "setting", inclusion of weak enemies with stronger ones so as to give you a feel of being powerful.
What am I looking for?
Well I love mmo's and I sure as hell would like to play an MMO again. However all 4 of the ones mentioned above have big turn offs for me. WoW I'm just burned out of and even though I sometimes give it another try, it's too familiar, too easy unless you raid hardcore.
Out of the ones above I'm liking gw2 the best for it's combat, however it's mostly about map exploration(which doesn't have value for me) and pvp. Although I enjoy pvp in the game, I just can't bring myself through the leveling process. There is no sense of character development, it feels like once you unlock the skills and weapon swaps, your character development is practically done.
I'm looking for fun/engaging combat. great community/guilds combined with a good pve and pvp content. In general a combination of traditional mmo's but with combat that's exciting, that I need to think and react instead of pressing 22222 while standing still and picking my nose with the other hand.
What I've found so far that might be what I'm looking for although I don't have a lot of info about these games yet are defiance and the elder scrolls online.
I'd appreciate any help but in any case I thank you for taking the time to read through!
