    First of all, neither TD2 nor Anthem aren't open-world so their experience in the starting month isn't a lot better than one-two months post-launch (you won't see hundred of players waiting for respawn of a quest mob). In fact it's going to improve over time.

    And it turned out TD2 isn't an improved version of TD1 - it's just different (why did they decrease quality of animations?!) So I practically have to play/buy Anthem. However paying $60 for an unfinished Warframe (or Diablo) clone with only 4 classes and $10-20-40-whatever skins isn't optimal: besides possible bugs and quick burnout due to the lack of content (i.e. "frames" to level up) and considering in-game shop + falling EA stocks they must be planning to start major sales and bonuses asap. Also I want to see if they are going to add new sentinels and if they will be as predictable as the four basic classes (rogue, ranger, mage, tank) or there will be anything even remotely original like Frost, Ember, Saryn, Mirage in Warframe?

    So I'll just sit and wait couple months before buying anything - while happily playing dailies in TD1 and upcoming NG+ in AC Odyssey. Or Diablo3, Waframe, BDO, Star Conflict, For Honor, GR Wildlands etc. etc. etc.

    Thank you for your time!

    Game was no where near ready at the time of the demo. I'm sure they won't push back release and they'll just release it in the garbage state it's in and it'll flop just like fallout 76.






    Game was not the finished build for Demo. Poor criticism on your part. The demo stress tested the servers, that's a good thing. There are no perfect game release in today's world. Even the champion Witcher 3 had bugs at release, and graphical downgrade.



    If you believe they had some great polished product that fixed the server issues, tons of graphic issues (especially at 4k) bugged quests and dungeon triggers, and loading issues waiting in the wings while people tested their bugged demo I've got oceanfront Arizona property to sell you.

    It's interesting that you keep comparing this to warframe, when they are not trying to be warframe. Have you ever thought, maybe just maybe, warframe is targeting people like you, leveling the same thing a million times. And Anthem is targeting people that want to level up only once. The reason why you don't like Anthem is not EA or Bioware's fault. It's your own. You enjoy re-leveling up the same thing over and over. Others do not. Maybe if you stopped comparing this to warframe, because it's not trying to be warframe, you will see something new here. When I first tried warframe, it was just a cheap mass effect knock off. In fact, warframe is trying to be like Anthem by adding flying.The could have added flying years ago. They didn't. No competition?. You hate Anthem because it's competition? Because competition is a bad thing? Companies strive to make their games better because of competition is a bad thing to you. This is why you're angry, Anthem will make warframe try to be better. So you hate Anthem.

    I believe the demo is earlier build not because they say it is. But because I've seen it played by the press multiple times for their first impression articles. It's the same demo. I also said there are no perfect games releases in today's environment. The great Witcher 3 had bugs at release, fact. That translates to I believe the product at release will still have bugs. Server issues are not game bugs. Two separate things. The launch would be far worse if they did not do these 2 demo stress tests. World of Warcraft had many months of closed beta tests, 2 stress tests, 1 open beta test. And they still had servers issues at launch. Knowing a little history can help you be less upset about these things.

    Of course they want you hyped; critical thinking shall not be applied here. Pay no attention to the glaring issues, simply pay them all of your $$$ so you can get 'early access' (because waiting to see what you are actually buying is for plebs).

    As long as reviews are decent, I'll be buying both Division 2 and Anthem. If the reviews are garbage, there are plenty of other games to play.

    enjoyed the demo but not enough to buy it on release , gonna wait a bit....

    about the division 2....ugh played it a bit and its fun but its like playing Division 1 in another zone , yeah there are new things , new toys , weapons , and whatnot but not enough reasons to buy it ...another "wait and see" approach

    You Accept Garbage So You Get it. I've been pc gaming probably longer than you've been alive. I was there day 1 in meridian, I was sprinkler rezzing guys in eq on rallos during the sleeper kill. Ive forgotten more gaming history than you know. I don't settle for garbage. This game easily needs another 6 more months of polish. There was so reason for the server load issues either. This isn't some small indy studio struggling to afford every piece of server hardware.

    Hate assume a feeling - but it's really difficult to feel anything towards an unfinished game with 1/5 of Diablo/Warframe content. It could be disappointment - if I had any positive expectations, but during last 5 years EA and BioWare did a damn good job curing me of any positivity towards their products.

    1/5 of Diablo/Warframe content.



    By that logic. World of Warcraft has 10000/1 to what warframe has. That must mean that warframe is worst game of all time!

    Based on the demo weekends I played of both, I'm comfortable with my $60 laid down on Tje Division 2 preorder.


    I truly hope, for Bioware's sake, that they've done an incredibly job with the storytelling..  but considering the dialogue options are pretty much different flavors of the same exact response, my head is skeptical it will do enough to make this title stand out or change my mind on where I'm currently spending my money.

    Good luck to them all the same!



    And after playing the Division 2 beta, I comfortably put in for a refund on my preorder of Division 2. I am now looking more forward to Anthem than Division 2.
    Good on you!  Support whichever title you like.  I felt the Division 2 bets was much more polished than my time with Anthem, and the time put in on the PC version was much more apparent in Division 2.  But, they also had a previous title with the same general mechanics to work with.
    Division 2 definitely feels better from an optimization standpoint I agree with you 100%.  To be honest, I am still on the fence for both.  I think partially because none of my buddies are interested in either which sucks.  3 of them are too into Sea of Thieves which I am completely stumped why since there's zero progression.  It's all cosmetic shit with hardly any content other than what you make it, through PvP.  And another buddy is just jewish when it comes to spending money.  He makes tonnnnns of money but hordes it all and won't buy a damn thing and is annoying as shit!

    If I had a dedicated crew to play with, I'd honestly play both and give them both a full play through with a lot of time put into it. Unfortunately, that isn't the case :(

    Considering all the negative posts you make about Anthem you most definitely have strong feelings towards the game.

    If you truly had no feelings one way or another towards Anthem then you would have said what you wanted to say and moved on a long time ago.

    But, No, here you are still posting about it and I dont think this is anywhere close to your last negative post about Anthem.

    Had loads of fun in the demo, and I feel I've done enough research by now to justify my preorder.
    Also, the order of javelins in the trailer will be the order I'll unlock mine in the game.

    I'd surely move on if there was anything interesting on the horizon. But PC MMO games market is obviously dying out (outside of handful hits). For example, list of MMORPGs in development today is nearly twice shorter than it was couple years ago and there are mostly small basic indie games and never-ending alphas like Star Citizen.
