    Hey I can throw you a guest pass! Don't listen to all the turds. If you want a game that requires you to be social and cooperate in order to be successful then Wildstar is for you. If you are looking for a solo game with faceroll endgame content then it is not. I will PM you a GP.

    What?

    Can you name me on themeaprk MMO where you can faceroll all end game content solo? wtf really.

    The comments by fans are getting really absurd on this topic.

    Wildstar your typical themepark MMO where you solo from lvl 1 to 50 and then hop on the hamster wheel for gear grind.

    Yes just like every single themepark MMO that existed before Wildstar.

    Stop trying to fool people into thinking WS is more social or group oriented.

    You can play WoW from beginning to endgame raids without ever talking to another person by using the LFR system.

    Not sure I would call LFR endgame...more like practice and getting ready for endgame. That is like says college sports is the pinnacle of sport competition.

    That is not same as facerolling end game content solo. I did dungeons in Wildstar and my experince has been same. People know the fights and just do what they have to and don't need to speak to one another. The most words i heard were 'don't stand in red', 'hello' and 'bye'.

    Lot's of people, mainly them in guild, are still plugging having a great time in WS. Things don't look so good now, but give it a few more months. People will knock out a year's expansion in WOW in a week, quit come back. People will flock to AA, figure out what that game really is (no comment). Come back. It's all good in the Nexus hood my Chua's !

    Just look how much fun pvp is again in ONE patch ! Carbine is busting their booties to get things back on track. It may take till Dec , but they'll pull through !

    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.

    It is very easy to prove him wrong.

    log in after 7 pm and post the screenshot of Wildstar servers showing high and medium population.

    How about that? easy to call him a liar when you got nothing to show otherwise.

    Such irony to call it as a random 'wildstar hate' when OP has repeatedly said that he enjoys the game but is bothered by low population.

    I will be waiting for those screenshots by the way.. if not do us all a favor and don't post here again pointing fingers at others.

    I think you've missed the bigger picture; OP has posted a screenshot showing low population, and the flood gates were open predicting gloom and doom for the game. Predictions that are essentially opinions, spewed and twisted into what some believe are facts. Fact is, the population seems to be 'low'. What does low mean? Well, it means... 'low'. That's it; nothing more to see her folks.

    The 'Random Hate' is apparent when the OP takes his one kernel of bloated truth, and inflates it to proclaim that 'the population is dwindling fast', or when others chime in and issue statements suggesting the game is fundamentally flawed. This, of coarse, is total bullshit. No one knows what Wildstars fate is, and you certainly cannot stand on population screenshots and draw broad conclusions, like this thread has done, without being called out. These opinions expressed ARE perfectly valid though, but they are simply that... opinions.

    It is a mixture of the difficulty to carry off grouping skills meaning like healing support,tanking and mixing that with avoiding all these telegraphs. A majority of the player base like most MMORPG players may actually not be good enough to do this as I pointed out in a thread sometime ago before the game launched.

    http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/post/6346287#6346287

     

    So when grouping dies a game based on an end game that requires heavy grouping will die too. They may have catered to a very elite hard core raiding design for those type of players but not all of them are twitch skilled.

     

    Look at FFXIV ARR it has grouping coming out of its ear. I do a minimum of  three dungeons a day because I love to group and heal and that game is so crowded everywhere. It's doing very well and it also a quest hub game. That is not the reason at all.

    The game is "failing" simply because its hardest encounters are not as hard as WoW's hardest encounters, and it has no casual content. Why are hardcore raiders going to switch to an inferior product, and why are casuals going to switch to a game with very little content for them?

    If you are going to tailor your game to the "hardcore crowd", you better damn well make sure your hardest fights are harder than WoW's hardest fights.

  • mark2123mark2123 LondonPosts: 308Member Uncommon

    Game is totally boring and repetitive.  No life or soul in the quests - just dull dull dull have to munch through the 30 on your list, keep getting more and it just all repeats.

    The devs learned nothing from all the other MMOs on how to design an enjoyable questing experience.

    And that's why WS's days are numbered.

    According to Blizzard's own admittance very few percentage of people participated in hardcore raiding in comparison to total population. But then again it has been 8 years now and that kind of raiding doesn't seem to be popular anymore.

    Where's this "admittance" by Blizzard? Link please.

    Getting 40 people on the same schedule is not hardcore.  Grinding is not hardcore.  Telegraphs out the ass are not hardcore, and lastly the absolute joke lore and atmosphere is not hardcore or memorable in the slightest.   I said this ship would sink way before it even launched, this doesn't surprise me at all.  

     

    What were Carbine's words to  describe Wildstar.... "WoW but better"?

    Yes population has dwindled very fast and i am pretty sure wildstar isn't getting new players at this point. So what is bloated about this? how anyone with sane mind can look at the servers at prime time and think 'hey this game is doing so well'.

    Please spare me your quest for facts and truth. People like you would rather go down with the ship in denial than rather accept that it is ofcourse sinking and its time to jump off.

    And yeah i enjoyed the game too but quit due to population issues. And i have read the entire topic but no where OP claimed it is fundamentally flawed but he should have because it is and that is why you see the low population. When you design your endgame to appease a small minority this is what you get.

    Everything point out towards the fact that population is low..so onus of proof is not on OP but those claiming otherwise and making vague statement like 'Wildstar is in still top 20 most played games' when asked which top 20 they just disappear or foolish statements like 'low on Wildstar means medium on other games'..that one takes the cake really.

    All i see is plenty of denial on part of the fans..nothing new really.

    Its very common knowledge that only a very small population participated in the "hardcore raiding," the evidence is everywhere and anyone who played BC and Vanilla knows this fully well and don't need to ask for quotes.  Hence why they added the LFR, it was not for free epics, it was so every player can experience the content even though it was severely watered down.

    IMO it's not just the endgame that is the problem.  I played for a few hours in one of the beta weekends. logged off and never came back. IMO it was just another mundane solo quest grinder to level game which gave me feelings of deja vu.  I would off put it down to feeling burnt out on MMO's but when I asked my daughter if she would like the game for her birthday (around the launch date), she replied no. She was really looking forward to Wildstar before getting into one of the beta weekends.  I never discussed my feeling towards Wildstar with her.  She told me she did not find it enjoyable but couldn't explain why.

    Good god this post is so full of fail. Here are three colorful (literally) points:

    RED: Link please.

    BLUE: I lol'd so hard at that; yea, let's just speculate and make it a worse case scenario, because, you know, it'll be cool and the negative sheep will eat it up and people will finally like it. We don't need no stinking facts! We'll make it up as we go along. Also, who tells the truth anymore, I'm mean seriously! /end sarcasm.

    YELLOW: thanks for proving my point, population post and... well, let's just stretch it to an OPINION about end game. Good job.

    Seriously, the population is low... we get it. That's it; spin it how you want, I don't think this title is going away (THAT however is just my opinion).

    Its ok denial is first step towards acceptance.

    One has to be active in game just to make a very educated guess at why population is low.

    Wildstar was in development for almost 10 years. if this MMO was released back in 2004 with raid or die model for hardcores only it might have worked. But those days are gone now.

    LOL all you want. That is not going to make the the current problem go away. There has already been huge topics on official forums begging devs to focus on end game and give more options to players because that is where  players hit a wall and quit.

    Is Wildstar gaining more players? if yes why the sale numbers aren't going up? why servers are sitting on low even during labor day weekend? that is not just a matter of opinion.

    But yeah mister naive wants an official annoucement frrom Ncsoft or carbine saying 'our game is failing because we targeted a small minority of hardcore alienating everyone else'. Good luck with that buddy. As if any game company ever admitted that they were in trouble.

    If a game does well it shows...example WOW or SWTOR. Wildstar not so much.

    Good god this post is so full of fail. Here are three colorful (literally) points:

    RED: Link please.

    BLUE: I lol'd so hard at that; yea, let's just speculate and make it a worse case scenario, because, you know, it'll be cool and the negative sheep will eat it up and people will finally like it. We don't need no stinking facts! We'll make it up as we go along. Also, who tells the truth anymore, I'm mean seriously! /end sarcasm.

    YELLOW: thanks for proving my point, population post and... well, let's just stretch it to an OPINION about end game. Good job.

    Seriously, the population is low... we get it. That's it; spin it how you want, I don't think this title is going away (THAT however is just my opinion).

    Its ok denial is first step towards acceptance.

    One has to be active in game just to make a very educated guess at why population is low.

    Now you're getting it; something from the horses mouth. I could just as easily post a screenshot (from an independent reviewer) showing Wildstar in the 'top 20' games of the summer, or some other such nonsense, and proclaim it's a huge success. THAT would be just as bad as this thread. Keep pounding the fail drum though, your arms will eventually tire. 

     

    Also, I LOL'd at the SWTOR reference. I'm sure you remember how these forums treated that title. Now, SWTOR is crowded and quite seemingly profitable for EA.

    Good luck with that. I am sure carbine will make an official annoucement about how they are struggling at this point. Could you be any more naive?

    And yeah SWTOR struggled at release..it showed..now it is doing well and made 200 million in profit in 2013. So when game is doing well that also shows. 

    Labor day weekend..prime rime and all servers low in US. I bet Wildstar is a smashing success.

    I got a spellslinger to 50 on Pergo. Joined a guild and participated in the endgame a little. 

    It was awful. The guild was kick ass and I hang out with some of the members irl (turns out we didnt live too far from eachother.) But the timesink at endgame was horrendous. It was obvious, and also stated by Carbine, that the endgame was tuned for the hardcore raiders from vanilla and BC. They overestimated the amount of people that style of endgame actually appealed too.
