if Warhammer lets me down...

...I am never playing a MMORPG ever again. World of Warcraft is a good game...its just old to me now, I need something NEW, but something new that doesn't suck.

Vanguard let me down. Age of Conan let me down. EQ2 let me down. Vanguard let me down, again. Warhammer is like...the last hope for a  new mmorpg that doesn't suck.

    If it lets you down (however unlikely that is), stick around for Aion or Earthrise.

    Have you tried LOTRO. Similar to Wow but great graphics great epic storyline. There is a 14-day trial that you can get.

    I share your feelings, so many mmos, so many disappointments and broken promises. If WAR lets me down, I am going back to MUDs.

    Na, I'll likely go back to wow and play a deathknight. Then get back to rl while I still have hair on my head (starting to recede).

    Tbh though I think war is gonna suck me in, but we'll see :)

    Do what I do, just have really low expectations, don't believe any of the hype and it can only surprise you.  That's what i did with AOC and its working fine.

    I am in exactly the same boat as the OP. I am selling my massive gaming rig on ebay and buying a MAC laptop. I will never touch an MMO again if this is disapointing.  I'm sorry if this sounds selfish, but it is. The last semi-decent mmo was WOW. Everything else since has been abysmal, not just bad but so bad that it was unplayable. I have an entire SHELF dedicated to bad horrible MMO's.  I, in fact, only have a PC to play mmo's, so if this is bad i'm done, and yes you can have my stuff and all my games for $7,500 bones.

     I'm guessing alot of people are setting thermselves up for a fall. (as they may have done before ) People have unrealistic expectations because they believe all the hype. Just don't buy the hype and you'll be a happier person in life. Worste thing that can happen is you'll be pleasantly surprised when something does exceed your more down to earth expectations.

      Marketing is all about shoveling hype, If you believe everything unknown poster x2135 or Market Advert 53 posts well then I'd say your either naively over trusting or just not that smart and really have no one to blame but yourself. Thinkaboutit

    hello all,

        I agree that some of the games have been a little bit of a let down lately, but i really think most of us are way too critical. I would never tell anybody how to play a game, we all pay the monthly subscription and it is your right to play however u would like. However the problem that i see is that whenever a new game comes out people blow through what could be 6 months to a year of content in 2 weeks. I mean age of conan for example was out for like a week and people were complaining of no end game content.

        I know it is hard to beleive, but the mmorpg genre is still pretty young. It costs a boatload of money and a boatload of resources to make these games. Huge risks are taken by investors and developers. For the "hardcore" gamer of today i really dont see an mmo that will satisfy for a long time to come. It is just not financially feasible to create a large evolved game right at release. And that seems to be what people expect. It seems like gamers want a game that has a bug free launch and a game that at release can provide thousands of hours of gameplay. This just isnt going to happen . We are not at that point yet. Developers are not able to secure enough money to create a game that is innovative and satisfies the needs of gamers of today and put their game out in a totally completed state from start to finish.

    I still am having a lot of fun playing mmorpg's. I think AoC has some good potential, and i really enjoy LoTRo. Turbine has done an excellent job with that game.

    Anyway, i am going to get off the soapbox, it is open to whoever wants it next,

    thanks,

    Cen

    For me the most disapointing MMO was WoW, WAR is what WoW was supposed to be for me. Hope WAR will not disappoint me like WoW.

    I feel much the same as the OP.  except I'll sell my comp the day I die.

     

    However, WAR is not my last great hope.  that burden I've placed on the Warhammer 40k mmo that's in development.  I figure either WAR or WAR 40k will scratch my mmo itch.

     

    If not.....there are plenty of fps, strat, action games to spend my money on if no one besides blizzard can figure out how to make an mmo.

     

     

     

    We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.

    I wouldn't sell my computer either, however, MMOs are the only reason I update my computer.  Come the time MMOs suck I will no longer need to update my computer and I would eventually just stop.

    I'll be happy if WAR releases with minimal bugs, the majority of features already implemented, and it's polished.

     

    AoC shows, once again, you have to finish the game and polish it before you release it, or it will be a dud.

  • VultureSkullVultureSkull Member UncommonPosts: 1,774

    Going by what has gone before it is highly unlikely that WAR will release without certain bugs, lack of polish etc. These games never do.

    Further to that all the games are more or less the same, WoW, AoC, WAR, EQ2, etc.

    with a few different features between them.

    Same game different skins, maps and classes.

    Wowwwww hey yeah you guys are geniuses. They're basically all the same with just little variations here and there! They all also have many people playing them, some of them have instances more than others, all of them have some type of leveling or achievement system...wow...MAYBE that's why they're in the SAME market?? They're all MMORPGs!?!?!?

     

    Hehehe.
