I have played both parts of this game (Prophecies and Factions) for a total of 600 hours, now i want to express my opinion about some things, and i hope that if i'm wrong about something u would correct me ...
1- The original game's price is still the same even though a year and a half have passed, any game that gets older its price gets lower.
2- If u buy the original and then Factions u don't get a discount, i mentioned this cause the RP part of the game (PvE) is too short and most people complained about the flaws in it, mind u, i LOVE this game, and even though i play Everquest2 now, i still miss GW badly, and wish they would improve the PvE part, cause PvP in this game is not my thing, it's too boring (my opinion and some others) and sometimes too team based, so that if one person makes a simple mistake, booof ur team is gone, well, maybe i'm not good at PvP, but that's not my opinion alone actually.
3- I made a new account for Factions (for my own reasons) and was shocked to find out that the Skills in the original isn't in this one too, this was a major disappointment, first, there're some skills that r way too good in the original, didn't log to Factions for a couple of months now, maybe they balanced it, but tell me, how can they give an advantage (even if by a slight 1 damage more) from a similar skill to someone who bought both parts over someone who has either only (in PvP that is, it doesn't matter in PvE), and above all that, it costs u 50$ (last i checked) to get the full set of original skills, wouldn't it be better to buy the game :P
4- Till now they haven't made a decent (or rather simple) Personal Store for the players, and we're still plagued by the spams in the town channels!
5- I love the new idea of Heroes, it makes the game a bit more interresting, and i thought about that feature long time ago when i first bought the game and wished they would add it someday, and my dream came true :P, but y wouldn't they add a really simple and small feature ... Customization, and i mean in appearance, i don't know about technicality, but changing the name of the Hero wouldn't hurt their DB (Database), maybe the appearances would take too much space there, but not the names really, anyway, great idea otherwise, wish SOE would apply it in Everquest for the soloers there.
6- MOCHOOOO lag, when i first bought the game last January i didn't have any at all, since before Factions came out by a month or something and they game has been very very laggy, isn't it supposed to be instanced, meaning, u get ur own copy on ur own computer, y do u need to connect to the server every second as if u're playing Everyquest 2.
7- Jumping, i remember the guy who reviewed the game in Gamespot was a bit annoyed by it , still remember it till now, but i don't care about it, BUT, they also should remove those obstacles that prevent u from walking into empty spaces sometimes, u can't see what's holding u up, but u can't move in a straight line sometimes.
8- They removed MasterCard payment, they said it's for Fraud reasons, but about the legitimate users, well, they appologised for the inconvenience really, i respect that, but can't someone con them using other Cards as well? this isn't something to whine about really, it's their right
9- Please please please, NC work on ur actors, i guess u know what i mean
10- The final strew that made me write this thread ... Pre-Ordering, first y dont' they support it themselves, second, i can't find a direct answer in any store about whether the package they're offering have an Extra Chr Slot or not, that's all i want, that extra slot, maybe this is how it goes for all games being Pre-Ordered, i don't know really, never tried before, but y not support it themselves, they have their own store!
11- Why wouldn't they offer a certain number of chr slots for sale, meaning ... if they can offer an Extra Chr slot for free with any Pre-Order then they can offer the same SINGLE slot for sale for a certain price too, how can i play Nightfall if i dont' have a slot open, should i delete a chr i have which i paid a lot of effort into creating?!
12- Finally, y not give a bonus to someone who buys the original game THEN Factions THEN Nightfall, doesn't that customer deserve some special treatment (and there're a lot who bought all the parts and willing to buy more).
Just to clear things out, i LOVE this game, i really like how it came out, but the above things really annoy me a lot, i never criticize anything except when i like it, cause i like it, i want it to be the best out there, so don't take this the wrong way, i'm not trying to flame the company, on the contrary, i'm opening a discussion about those things so that if i'm wrong about something someone could correct me, and maybe the rest would reach the company's ears!
note: sorry about the (r, u, y ... etc.) too used to them and that's a long post to check every word i'm saying twice :P.
