    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.

     

     

    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.

    ESO was released on April 4th right.

    Press review were at 60 some  not negative but not positive either

    Gamereactor Sweden  on April 14th gave it a 60

     

    PCGamesN  on April 18th a 50

     

    Gamer.nl on April 14th gave it a 60

     

     
     
    Scroll to the bottom and check the dates of those reviews.
      
     
     No really bad reviews but even as early as those dates these reviews by the critics were not positive. Compare to Wildstar has collected good reviews well not that many because it is a low profile game and not in the class of ESO. I mean ESO was a big budget and publicized game and Wildstar is not in that league. For a smaller game it has done well.

    I said "registered metacritic press reviews"

    Every game in history has gotten 1s from end user reviews on first day.

    To all people having fun in Wildstar and are trying to demonstrate other public positive opinions about the game you enjoy, stop.

    All those positive opinions on the game (the vast majority of opinions on the game) are wrong.

    You are not having fun.

    You have to wait 2-3 months to see if you actually had fun playing the game.

    Do not trust your own fun-o-meter.

    I repeat...You are not having fun.

    Yes I noticed after I posted (sorry about that read too fast) I edited and put in the 60 and 50 that critics gave and see the date. I also noticed the lowest ESO got was a 40 and only one critic gave that. So 50 is next lowest which was given on April 18th within the two weeks date but what is most telling is what the 4 critics gave Wildstar compared to what they gave ESO.

     

    Cheat Code Central has perhaps only one rating image they gave both games 90

     

    PC Gamer 89 for Wildstar and 68 for ESO

     

    JeuxActu  85 for Wildstar versus 70 for ESO

     

    Gameblog.fr gave Wildstar 80 and ESO 70

     

     

     More than anything the thing that worked against ESO was its infamy. It was from a huge IP and it suffered for it. Wildstar is unknown , small and quiet and has no big fan base to piss off. I think even the critics came out in droves for ESO. Wildstar is not on many critics radar even and it will not get that many critics to review it. It's  a small game and not trying to fill any big boy shoes.

    one review was critical of the bugs after the first 10 days of ESO - gave ESO a 60

     

    otherwise i agree w you,  it's launch month, too soon to tell with WS

    An average critic score of 78 as opposed to 86 and an average user score of 6.7 as opposed to 8.3 is hardly comparable is it. Come on, Wildstar has been far better received than ESO from the get go. It's also clear from players reactions in forums such as this that Wildstar has had a much more successful launch and has a far more developed game. And I speak someone more inclined to the ESO type of game to Wildstar.

     i agree, it helps that WS doesnt have an existing franchise fanbase expectations like ES has

     

    WS does want to play w the big boys

    How many MMOs have you seen that launch kinda well and then fade off because users don’t stick around?  If we’re going to play with the big boys, we have to earn the right to be one of the few MMOs that can not just draw gamers in, but can earn those gamers’ loyalty over time.  It’ll be hard; it’s a tough market out there and there are giants launching on either side of us.

     

    i think WS will get plenty of attention

    Nah.

    Create character; experience the hand holding; kill mobs, do quests, PvP, whatever to level. Rinse repeat. During this process character creation; in-game communication; trade systems ....most stuff doesn't change. And review sub-scores for graphics, sound and so forth won't change..

    What you can say is that a reviewer hasn't experienced end-game content. Will that really change the review though?

    Imo if WS gets a nice score at early lvl's, then at end game the score will be even better, as it is a game that shines mostly at max lvl content and not that much in the lvling process.

    Wildstar isnt my cup of tea, didnt really like it (as it is now). ofcourse like always.. subjective opinion, nice to see its getting well-recieved though.
    Main games: Heroes of the Storm, Starcraft 2, Brawlhalla
    Waiting for: Overwatch

  • LudwikLudwik Rochester, NYPosts: 401Member Uncommon
    Rated WS a 6 and ESO a 5, stand by both of those grades.

    I hope the game does well, it can only help the industry. But I just don't see it. The dungeons and adventures are fantastic but that's it. The solo play is ho hum and the PvP is not my cup of tea.

    I would be shocked if this game was still relevant a year from now.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding but when I said "blow up", I meant take off in the direction of WoW like numbers. Of course, your prediction could come true as well ;)

    Personally I think 86 is a little high at the moment. All the 10s skew the ratings badly on metacritic, I don't think a single game ever released has been a 10 out of 10.

    I feel more comfortable with it being around 65-75 imo. It's a great game and good change of scenery for WoW players, but until the combat issues and performance issues are fixed I don't think an 8/10 is in order. Now once they patch the game here over the next few months I think it could easily be an 86.

    Really enjoying the game, but I think people need to be a little more honest with their reviews.

    I think the playerbase is going to drop once they get to endgame and experience firsthand the difficult content that requires 20 and 40 people.  Already I hear a bunch of whining about how the regular dungeons are too hard for a lot of people.

    This game is marketed towards hardcore players and it's no big secret that this subsection of a game's population is very small.  As long as Carbine has accounted for this then the game should be fine.  If they have enough other content in the game that casuals or non-raiders can participate in on a regular basis then that's good as well.

    Except for the deep housing and crafting, huge open world to explore, tons of quest types, path system, rival list, warplots, bgs, and arenas...yeah its just a raiding game heh.

    Well said nbtscan.. You can solo in this game, however your going to have a hard time getting certain quests done unless you make friends or have a nice guild to be part of.

    Anyways..

    Let's just see where the developers take this game after a few months,will they dumb down content for the solo players even more? Also everyone criticizes a monthly fee on mmo's today, WS will be no different than the rest. The only company I still see to pull this subscription base off will be WoW, since they really don't need to make their game f2p due to their loyal clientele.

    Other than that, good game so far, but still far from a 10. In my experience the game still needs to be optimized. bots destroyed and some quests are still bugged since beta. And  as long as Carbine listens to the player base problems, you will have a loyal following to this game or then again, you may just have a niche crowd of hardcore gamers.

    About ESO vs WS...these games are still in their infancy, MMO's are ever evolving products, anything can happen between now and shutdown. Look at TOR, it saw the same type of reception ESO has, with the same type of negative stigma leading up to launch, again due to a preexisting fan base and the baggage that came with that. Today it's running strong, with proper additions coming quite regularly.

     

    Judging an MMO's merits based on a few weeks to a couple months of metacritic scores is extremely shortsighted. I'm not sure why people get caught up in the X-v-Y BS TBH. Especially those who get up in arms about folks trashing this or that game..

    I hope both do great during the long haul.

    There are 471 player reviews, which isn't too shabby for a game that just released.  It's at 8.2 for player reviews.  It's not that often that both the player and commercial review scores are in the green.  That is something of an accomplishment in itself.

     

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    Agreed. Especially with a game like this where they launched with so much content. Its impossible to give a proper review. The limited amount of content I have experienced so far is quite well done. Like I am kind of floored at how well made this game is. But I have not seen even close to every thing, which makes me both excited and reserved in my final opinion of this game.

    Comparing games is ok, but what I see a lot is not so much comparisons but rather volleys back and forth. If I wanted to compare ESO vs Wildstar, Id have to actually play the game first, right? Doesn't seem to stop anyone around here though haha.
