    At launch? Hell, I would be playing it right now if they would let me.

    I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

    No, played in the beta on Friday and it just didn't catch my interest. It seemed like a decent game and hope it does well for those who are interested but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

    Marking for later.   Prognostication is so fun.

    To be fair I usually don't weigh in on whom will beat whom in sales.  But ESO will be released on PC,Mac,XBox One, PS4.  Does put them at a slight advantage.  Regardless, Wildstar doesn't have a release date yet.  The game could very well be pushed back.

    Oh, I'm not doubting that ESO is going to sell more boxes out of the gate.  The Elder Scrolls IP guarantees that.  That doesn't mean it will have more long-term success.  As I stated on another thread, I enjoyed both games and will be playing both.  I just happen to think there is more "meat" to Wildstar.  I think once the NDA is lifted, you are going to see an upswing in positive reviews, just like you saw with ESO.

    I and a bunch of my friends were looking forward to WS. 

    We all got in to ESO beta and really didn't click with any of us and then only I was able to get in to WS beta so far. 

    But after playing WS I actually missed playing ESO.

    I will probably end up playing ESO by myself for a bit while my friends find out what WS is like.

    No to Wildstar AND ESO. Honestly, they're good games and I wish them well.  They are good games, not GREAT games. They offer me nothing I cannot find elsewhere.

    I voted yes, I have not played it but after seeing the live streams I'm pretty excited people compare it to WoW but i don't necessarily consider that a bad thing. Personally after seeing whats coming in WoD completely dissappointed into what the game has become.

    I havent been in any of the betas to see, but from what I have heard at least it is worth at least trying, and anything worth trying in an MMO is worth trying at launch.

    I wIll not be buying either Wildstar or ESO at launch. Might have a looked few months down the line once things have settled a bit.
  • hockeyplayrhockeyplayr Middlesex, NJPosts: 604Member Uncommon
    I'll be playing it, as well as ESO (friends plan on picking that one up).  Wildstar may not do much that is different, but what it does it does well.

    Yeah, I will. It's what I've been waiting for. A spiritual successor to WoW. After playing it, I'm pumped.

    ^ Is why I wont....

     

    WoW had it's time and was great back then. But because of this opinion that Wildstar is some how a successor ....makes me cringe.

    Ill be trying it out when it it launches. I dont mind the sub fee. I actually welcome it. Keeps those dang pesky trols living in moms basement out!

    If you cant afford $15 a month on your hobby, maybe you should get a new hobby. $15 is 3 packs of smokes for me. I smoke a pack a day. I could use a few days without smoking!

    I love the humor. I love most of the classes. Combat is fun. Graphics look great on my gaming rig. The game has personality.... but the world is quite static.

    NPCs are static unless they have an essential purpose like quests or selling items, etc. Similar to SWTOR in this regard. I'm done with dead worlds.

    So no I will not be playing once it goes live... unless that changes drastically.

    Someone put it perfectly in an ESO thread. Wildstar is a game. ESO is World.

    People keep comparing it to WoW and in many ways it is like WoW but much better. But at least WoW has a living world. In WoW you can interact with almost all the NPCs. It helps create immersion.

    I dont know why you guys or trolls are saying its like WoW, just b/c of the graphics?

    The game is really fun if you tired it out.. ya its not going to be for everyone but I do believe it will be a success for awhile at least, I played ESO but I didn't like it combat was nice it was all nice but I couldnt get pass the PvP which scaled besides Points, Gives nothing to work forward to..

    but that game is going to be a success for awhile as well.. Nothing is going to be as successful as WoW EVER!! I never played wow more then 1 day but they have/had a Great game at its time..

    The "Only" thing I dont like about Wildstar is the fact that I cant find in option to not hold right mouse button down the whole time while fighting mobs.. wish it was more like Tera camera view.. meaning if you move your mouse left or right the aimer would move with you..

    Thats not the case with wildstar, you are spamming your first ability and you have to hold RMB to keep aiming it.. while kiting.. thats my only down fall

    You can use an addon called Deadlock extended from the Wildstar forums which allows for a fps-type camera/target reticule.

    I'm definitely going to wait. I've been disappointed by a few games and now I'm taking the 'wait and see' approach with all new MMOs. Let others get in there and find out if the new shiny wears off in a month or so.

    This is the reasoning as to why i WILL NOT be getting WS. 

    Raid progression.

    Vertical gear treadmill.

    Over the top telegraphed Boss fights / AOEs (toned down it would be acceptable)

    "?" Quest hubs.

    Themepark rehash.

    2 factions instead of 3 or more.

    All in all it is a complete "been there done that" re-do of themeparks. Someone did not tell Carbine that themepark content driven MMO's are the past, not the future.

    Lolipops !

    I will be waiting to see if it really is another WoW clone, or if they do something that truly interests me. Who am I kidding, I can't bring myself to play another NC$oft game no matter how good it is. More power to those that can and I hope it's everything you guys want out of an MMO :)

    Currently Playing: ESO and FFXIV
    Have played: You name it
    If you mention rose tinted glasses, you better be referring to Mitch Hedberg.

    One could also tell Zenimax that if your going to pick up a  lore based game like ESO you should at least be able to provide lots of feature's and option's,but i suppose both games fall short in some ways ( Eso in mores ways than wild-star).

    Why are you so irrelevant? >:)

    Are you really serious? Have you played WildStar? I have.

    On topic: No I will not play Wildstar at launch but am sure I will be playing later.

    Count me in as of the first day of Open Beta, which they say will start a month before final release.
