Wildstar and its biggest flaw

This game makes literally the worst first impressions.

 

That is all. (Take it how you will)

    I have to disagree. I've been instantly put off by just about every new MMORPG I've played in the last few years, with the exceptions of GW2 and SWtOR (which loses it's interest after the class story, but was strong out of the gate). I think Wildstar does a very good job of grabbing your attention early on.

    ESO-- now that's a bad early impression.

    I agree with OP. I have leveled to level 5 on 2 characters now. The starting area and quests are so boring its crazy. All I hear about is how the game really picks up past level 15. I really hope so... I am going to give the game a chance because even WoW at launch didn't pick up until Deadmines/RFC/WC..... Dungeons are usually exciting content, while questing is a snooze-fest.

    Yes and no.  I honestly agree with the 2nd poster in that TESO has a far worse first impression ( a proverbial kick in the nuts, if  you will) to the player and the overall story. 

     

    I concede that the initial starting area of the Dominion is kind of "sleep worthy" and the only interesting parts are when pushing the buttons that obliterate the test subjects in the Chua's lab.     The mirrored opposite of the Exile ship starting area is exciting, fun, entertaining, and overall quite enjoyable. 

     

     

    However when it comes to all 4 of the starting areas just after the tutorial ship, all of them are equally entertaining and fun.

    I tired... I tried on 4 separate occasion during 3 betas. I made it to level 5 or something. I stopped for the last time after I had to save some talking vegetable from evil planters.

    havent played Wildstar yet but ESO and ArcheAge both have awful beginnings.  But i cant think of the last MMORPG that had a compelling starter area.

    Very good point syriinx.

    This is a pretty obvious troll post. Sad

    Are you going to elaborate on what exactly makes this the worst first impression?  Or is this just an attempt at trolling.  I'm thinking it's the latter.

    Pretty much everyone who has played knows what he is talking about. The early questing sucks and there are a lot of optimization issues.

    Last time i logged in i was 23 i think, That was some weekends ago.

    The questing does not get any better than these lvl 1-5 quests imo.
    What people use as a strong point are the dungeons, Which are very twitch but after you become familiar with them they are the sideshow to the 'main event' of questing.

    Personally while dungeoning is quite stimulating, Its nothing new. The secret world and other such games have already experimented with this "telegraphing" mechanic.

    7/10.

    While I might not completely agree with you.  I respect that you actually gave reason for it.  Something the OP clearly forgot to include.

    The starting area is very bad. The general questing is poor with limited voice acting and limited innovation. The combat is average, not as good as GW2 but better than wow. The art style and overall feel of the game I quite enjoy. May be worth a purchase as I'm on holiday anyway.

    I felt like uninstalling for the first hours to level 10.
