    I've been looking for the words to post in this thread.... You just found them for me.

    I think, it tells a lot about this site, that in the Wildstar Forums, there are far more ESO fans than in the ESO forums. And sometimes I think so vice versa.

    People just seem to like trolling instead of actually talking and discussing to each other. There

     

    on-topic:

    No, WS is not our (who?) last hope. ESO is also not our (who again?) last hope. Both seem to be good games, which i will enjoy somewhere in the future. Looking forward to them both!

    Hodor!

    Wildstar is the last hope for who? 

     

    Not for me.

     

    This is turning into another GW2 vs TOR fanboy slug fest. Stop belittling other mmos and hyping the one YOU like. Everyone has different likes and tastes, so just because you dont like something, dont assume everyone else shares your sentiment.

    I myself prefer ESO. It takes along time, but once you get out of your starter zone.....it almost does not feel like a mmo...

    I like how some people feel the need to defend their mmo choice when other people select a different choice.

    Defending? No.

     

    Just saying why i like it.

    Hasn't this been a staple thread title for every MMO that has released in the last 10 years?

    LOL, anyone that has played GW2 for a significant amount of time already knows what Wildstar will be. Yet another cash scheme by the same company. I am not even going to give Wildstar a shot. It will just be another cash shop cosmetics fest with boring/insignificant updates to drive the cosmetics.

    GW2 - ? No nothing like GW2 - might want to take off your blinders and really look at the game, it's not like GW2 at all

    Just another NCsoft game. 

    The Business Model is pretty similar.

    I gave Wildstar a good try this weekend - it just doesn't do it for me.  I'm sure it will attract a decent fanbase and both this game and ESO will be successful.  They are 2 very different styles of game even though they are themeparks, and I think you're either going to like this one or ESO and not care for the other too much.  I'm sure there will be exceptions, but that's my guess.

    In beta now and I must say I'm much more impressed with ESO. The skills and story are jest meh.

    ESO can't take WoW's place they have different ideologies. It's true pretty much every aspect of Wildstar is UBER polished compared to ESO including more content on the surface (except an unoptimized client back in december which may or may not be fixed now), but it's hardly sucking. At least the NDA lifting allowed it to move up in the hype meter higher than Wildstar is now.

    If you really like WoW and want a similar experience. Wildstar I think can offer it. That's how I feel after being in beta and trying to force myself to test it. Wildstar will be a fun game...though for old WoW fans.

    I haven't played Wildstar beta so I can't compare the two personally, but Wildstar will appeal to WoW fans, namely the old ones, for sure, but I think that may be bad as well.  If its too much like WoW then players may not be willing to essentially start over and deal with bugs and lack of content again. 

    We shall see though.  I personally think there are so many players now looking for instant gratification that any game that doesn't cater to them is doomed to flounder in mediocrity.

    The only question is if this game will become F2P before ESO or ESO will be F2P before WS.

    I was playing Wildstar beta was really looking forward to it and I felt like it was just wow 2.0 did nothing for me.  ESO I was not really thinking about much got a beta so I tried it and I loved it.  In one weekend i put more time into ESO then I did Wildstar in months.  So best of luck to you.  I hope EQ Next is the new thing but we will see.

    What are the reasons Wildstar are for "WoW fans". When i watch videos about this game it rather reminds me on a mix between GW2 + Swtor. But since I did not play the game I cant judge it. Would be cool to hear some points, thx.

    There's regular classes and regular quests in linear maps, unlike GW2. And they do not try to make a big deal out of the story at all, unlike SWTOR, but rather use the same old approach: quest text nobody reads, which can be immediately skipped through, and the occasional 10-second long birds eye cutscene. There's no writing or acting that you'll regret skipping through anywhere.

     

    It's really just a rehash of WoW in any way you can imagine, from the "follow the map marker" quests to the cartoony art style and disregard for modern graphics technology (hey, I guess they saved money to spend on something else... I just don't see what).

    As an old Wow fan, I don't see Wildstar appealing to all old Wow fans.  I think it will appeal to Gnome fans.  Those who played Wow and really like Gnomeregan and Gnome related humor will like Wildstar.

    I wasn't impressed with Wildstar all that much, Ill stick with EQNext and ArcheAge

    If Wildstar is ur last hope, then u have no hope.

    ESOTU had a great patch today, it could change the direction of game for the good!

    Saved 50 bucks.

     I'm playing Wakfu, a completely different take on the MMO experience and I've been subbed to the game for over 2 years now. Much more than most can say about any recent game. It has grind, high level cap, tons of crafting, and many other features. I don't have to have a developer create hand holding content for me in this game. If anyone is looking for a new game and wants something different; give Wakfu a try.

    also its no longer time that we stick on 1 MMO for 5-7 years anymore. maybe we should just buy the mmo we like and play for the free month and begone with it.

    Better than the alternatives with "realistic" graphics and the same color palette as a NYC subway station men's room toilet. It may no longer a time for YOU to spend 5-7 years on a game, but there are still plenty of us out there who know the value of staying with a game.

    Last hope for what ?  Ex/current WoW players looking for the next big one ?  Yes it has that nailed, and no that's not a bad thing, its actually an great thing (not for my taste but great none the less) . The devs  were aiming ( by their words) to make a sci-fi WoW with action combat and much better game systems, and they  did that masterfully.
