MOD 16 The End of Neverwinter. Lead Desinger failed..

GoromhirGoromhir Member UncommonPosts: 446
Today MOD 16 goes live and since like 2 weeks almost my whole guild , all veteran players left the game.

So today after patching the 1st thing i will have to do is to find a new guild if there are any good ones left after this game breaking combat mechanics disaster went live.

I think the Developers and the Lead Designers drove this game into a wall ......

    It's not as bad as those are making it.   I think this out of the reddit forum is a better take on it:  

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Neverwinter/comments/bj56yc/how_to_stay_alive_in_m16/

    It seems most having problems with the update are the higher level players upset that their game has changed.   I've leveled from 30 to 32 over the last couple of days and haven't had a problem with it.

    Sorry to say this for those who enjoy Neverwinter, but I do hope the game shuts down soon because I want a good MMORPG set in the Forgotten Realms, a mix between ESO and GW2 with classic dungeon and dragon class system and working alignment system.

    Neverwinter is a perfect example of a missed opportunity; the game would have been fantastic IF it were an actual MMO with open persistent world and IF it had actual AD&D rules...

    I cannot help wondering what a lead Desinger actually does...

    By looking at Ion Hazztogostuss of Blizzard over the past 6 years under his 'guidance,' make excuses and apologize after people publically criticize design choices for months followed by "we have learned from the past and will try to improve."

    10 years ago, this site was like a PEZ dispenser for MMOs, always discussing the next new upcoming MMORPG on the heals of one being closed down. Unfortunately, the genre ran out of PEZ tablet packages, so there are no more up and coming MMOs behind the ones we have now.

    Play DDO and suffer though the bad graphics and Eberron landscape till you are high enough level for Forgotten Realms.

    Damn right. Lets not forget to give us some real character build choices not the BS they have in Neverwinter Online.

    Right it never felt like D&D at all. It just felt like another generic MMO.

    Well, a lot of people on these forums seem to sing the praise of a Sub Based model, which is kinda funny that you left because they asked for a sub.. I would have thought you would have been ecstatic to enjoy a sub based game, and be able to pay the sub for a month and explore as much of the game as you want.

    WHAT?  Are you sure you actually tried the game?  8 F2p lvl 1 dungeons plus a wilderness zone, 18 F2p lvl 2 dungeons, 9 F2p lvl 3 dungeons plus a wilderness zone, 7 F2p lvl 4 dungeons etc... etc...

    While a pain, leveling up to max level is doable for a free to play player.

    Also you don't need to sub you can just outright buy, permanently unlocks, content (quest packs).

    Totally.. but.. sub feel allows you to play all the content, and is better if you are just trying to test the game out, if you decide you like it.. it's better to buy.

    Yeah, game devs are funny that way, they expect to earn money from people who play their games.

    Weird.

    Is OK, except for a couple of years playing WOW I've never enjoyed any MMORPG labeled "AAA" for very long.

    Guess I'm more of a AA player,  if a game appeals to the masses I'm sure to loath it.

    Just an elitist hipster sort of thing.

    Most stuff is unplayable. Especially when the enemy heals for more damage than you can give. And they nerfed companions healing ability. + literally unkillable enemies spawning due to hitting too hard and healing for more than you can damage.

    If a new AAA MMORPG comes out that interests me that wants to charge me $60-$100 for the box and then $15-$20 a month, I'm cool with that.  However, I'm done with the entire F2P/Cash shop model that has a built in paywall that you have to climb before you can compete.  If that means the genre has passed me by, well I'm cool with that as well.

    With 5th Edition out there, or hell even 3.5 you would think they would pick Advanceds?

    This has got to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. You would pay 15 - 20 a month, just to play a game, but don't want things locked behind a pay-wall.. what the .. do you think a sub is, if not as paywall to play the game?

    AD&D has always been about limited choices. The 2nd edition was the edition that introduced non-weapon proficiencies and 'took the game out to the world' instead of limiting it to dungeons. The future editions, influenced by the success of MMOs, tried to make D&D more MMO-like, but that is a complete fail imho.
    I'm not suggesting they should implement the AD&D rules to the MMO version with 100% accuracy (would be impossible to do anyway) but they should have at least made the rules more AD&D-like and not MMO-like.
