Okay, so I'm looking for an MMORPG. WoW was pretty much the first computer game I ever played...
Then I quit it.
Since then City of Heroes has been the only other MMO I've played seriously since then.
Been almost 6 months to a year (I think) since I've played an MMORPG, and I've found myself wanting the experience again.
I've made a list of all the things I didn't like about WoW/CoX, and have listed all my problems below. Basically the game I'm looking for is the one that fixes all these problems.
1: In WoW the game was always rather difficult for me. Possibly because I was such a Noob, and possibly because of # or something else, I always felt that in a couple of levels I would just not be able to beat those monsters out there; that things were going to get just too hard and I wouldn't be able to play the game any more.
2. Repetitiveness. I know this is to be expected with an MMORPG, but I'm an Alt-o-holic. I make new characters all the time. I need a quest line/tier that isn't so bad playing over and over and over.
3. Lack of direction: Boy, did I have this problem in City of Heroes. In WoW I always kind of knew what level range a zone was, but with CoX I always, always felt out of place. Besides that, there was the feeling of "Where do I go now?" that was present whenever I 'finished' a zone. I need a game that is very clear, I need to know where my level fits and where it doesn't.
4. PvP. I like the idea of PvP. I really do. I'm playing conventional action FPSs quite a lot and I love to kill other players in those games. In the same way, I really want to fight other players in an MMO. So far, however, I have only met with frustration and confusion. No matter what, it always feels like it's ether two easy or (much, much, much more often) like the other guy is cheating. Twinks in WoW, anyone? You may argue that Twinks stop happening in the higher levels, but see # 2. The highest level character I ever got in WoW after maybe a year of playing was 25. I make new characters all the time. I spend more time in the 10-19 bracket of BGs than any other PvP area, so I'm always dealing with enemy players that were essentially Gods of the battlefield, who would swoop down and, complete with thunder, destroy anything in their path. In CoX I was always in a "what? What do I do here? Where do I go?" / "WTF." mood whenever I tried PvP. Is there a system of PvP that works anywhere?
5. Never felt like I was playing my class right. Esspecially in CoX. I always felt in groups that I was dragging everyone down, and that everyone else was just picking up my slack. It didn't matter whether or not this was true, I just always felt that everyone else was doing a better job than me (except where they were obviously failing). Something about me and the Tanking role don't mix. I just never feel like I'm doing my job right when I play it.
