    I agree with you.

    I actually was playing ESO and never had any intention of playing Wildstar. Didn't follow it due to thinking it looked cheesy and childish. To make a long story short, I ended up buying Wildstar on a whim out of boredom, and within the first hour I knew this game will more than likely be *very* popular. Its well made, it runs great (even on my system) and its actually very entertaining and fun, but most importantly... group dungeons even at a low level are somewhat difficult and require more than a pulse to complete!

    This creates teamwork which imo is the best feature of all to Wildstar. You will die and you will have players drop group because they know nothing more than being carried. You will after a few minutes get a few guys / gals together that already know what they're doing or are simply willing to learn. This difficulty is absent in games nowadays and its a very important part of gaming on so many levels. From community to helping players get better at the game to economy and much more!

    I am so tired of the typical brain-dead simplified themeparks, really, but if you are on the fence with buying this game i absolutely think its worth your time and $$$!!

    I am enjoying it so far. I started a few days after my friends so I'm pretty much soloing, but, still having fun. LOL at the user reviews of 0 or 1. Blind hate, probably from those not actually playing it. Honestly, how many games are a legit 0?

    they were trying to make a game that catered to everyone. it looks like they succeeded in the short term.

     

    From the negative statements it looks like the only real complaints are the optimization with some specs, the stylized graphics, and wildstar having typical mmo progression. None of which are really game breaking.

     

    it could really be a hit if carbine does manage to put out content as fast as they claim they can.

    I don't think you do.  It got a score in the 80's on METACRITIC!

    I'm having convulsions right now!

    ESO got way high scores at first too. Let's wait a month to see the real picture.

    Quoted for truth.

     

    The game is still barely into the "OOOHhhhhh shiNEYYYYYY!!!!!" phase.  Wait till 3 months in and then see where it stands.  Raids is where I think its gonna really hurt it.  WoW quite 40 man raids for good reason, the "hardcore" are only a severe minority but very vocal since they are the one the spend too much time in the game and on the forums when the majority get done with work, play a few hours and then log off for bed who don't have the time to dwell in the forums.  Blizz made a smart move to allow access of content to everyone who desired it and in different difficulty to satisfy the more hardcore type of players.  This is what Carbine is off the mark imo.

    Not really sure what you're getting at with that one?  That's a very high-quality game deserving of that score.  The game was -and still is- enjoyed by many players and critics alike.   The price point of $60 plus no subscription was also a major factor in the game's score from many of the critics; basically that lack of subscription helped boost it 2-4 points alone.   

     

    Wildstar is a great game and as a subscription based on is going to be held to a higher standard than many other games out there on the market.  Why?  Because there has to be a content justification for that $15 a month for the players....and there most definitely is.    The game's housing is the rave of players, media, critics, and even haters cannot dispute it's appeal (unless they hate housing, which is to say the genre isn't for them :P).    The questing, group content, open world PvP, fun action-based combat, and other things of the game solidify it's enjoyability factor.   Fun = high score = good game.  Get it?

    Should always be weary of reviews (including the press unfortunately) where they haven't even gotten halfway to max level before rating it. 

    I'm glad the first 2 dungeons were fun the first 2 times, but let me know how fun they are when you're still running them in a few months.

    honestly, i have played many mmos. i am a fan of GW2 though anet is killing my love for it. As for ESO love the concept sadly ZO seems to stupid to know how to run a mmo. Wildstar, it is a fun game that makes you work for things..nothing is just handed to you. The community is awsome at least on my server. and helpful.

    Seriously, the game has only been out for two weeks... once the new shiny/honeymoon effect wears off people will start dropping like flies.
  • BeelzebobbieBeelzebobbie MalmöPosts: 429Member

    Wildstar is gonna be a hit, this I am sure of. Players seems to love it.

    I personally won't play it cause I hate the quest hubs and I am not much for raiding so not that much of a game for me.

    But I know it will go big and I hope it will live for many years.

    Still too early to say.

    Endgame is the thing that makes or breaks an MMORPG.

    Granted Wildstar does seem to have a lot to do in the endgame most of the gamers are yet to experience it.

    My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

    Whoever it hurts, Wildstar is the most successful mmo in the last 5 years, and it's only going to get better. If you're a hater, you'll have to deal with it.

    That's not true at all.  the first month saw user scores of 2.8 and review scores in the high 70's.  That's a far cry from what Wildstar is getting now, which is very high.  I agree though, we need to wait and see what the real scores are in a few months.  But please, ESO got obliterated on metacritic when it first hit.

    More successful than anything since 2009? An you have data to backup this made-up claim where?

    Wildstar has not been out for a month. ESO didn't get a single low score from registered metacritic press reviews in the first 2 weeks.

    The user score is always important as well.  They might not have gotten a low score in the first 2 weeks but it wasn't high either.  I just don't want it misrepresented.  I was high on the game at the time, and was not happy with the scores at all.  I didn't understand why they were justified until later on.  Regardless, Wildstar is doing very well right now.  We'll see if the difficulty causes low scores here in the next few weeks.
