    oh you can't be serious. You can't be serious someone kill me now. The basic elements of an MMO are those of an offline standard RPG?

    The basic elements of an MMO have nothing to do with either massive, multiplayer and online?

    ffs someone fuck me.

    An MMO is not a genre like fps, rts or racing game.

    Gaining levels is in no way a requisite for any mmo - It's just something that most developers got stuck on as it is a very simple way to express character progression.

    Gathering aswell, not necessary, just a design cliche that you 'need' to do it.

    Evolving is also something that's not exclusive to mmo's or any game ;p


    If you want a really different MMO, check out "Love", a cooperative world building game, or "A Tale in the Desert" which is also pretty unique.

    Thinking that every MMO should be very similar to WoW will kill off the MMO industry at some point or another.

    Living, breathing world = delusional thinking.

     

    This kind of thing happens all the time in big companies.  The bullshit becomes more important than the product.  Just keep the spin going and the fanatics will hold on tighter.

     

    But what could they say, the dead lifeless worlds...

    Take it easy and enjoy the ride swtor gives you ,and dont rush so fast in a new game, you kids consumes way to fast

    For at least the tenth time, I was in WoW at launch, it didn't have 'so many bugs' and it didn't 'crash all the time'.  a FEW servers crashed a lot.  I think I got like 10 days credit and that was just because everyone got that, I was hardly affected on a very populated Argent Dawn (main RP server for Vanilla WoW).

    WoW wasn't old and intolerable after two weeks, SWTOR is.  WoW is still essentially WoW 1-60, which is where it's drew most it's subs.  Cataclysm is the biggest change to that.  SWTOR can't survive 8 years with it's 1-XX game in it's current condition.

    Yes and no it won't stay in current condition. SWTOR is Biwoare's flagship MMO, you think they will just leave it in its current state and move on? SWTOR being intolerable is matter of opinion, i am sure many are enjoying the game and also there were like me who got bored of WOW after one month of release.

    And yes WOW did crash and a lot of people had serious troubles logging in. If you were REALLY at launch you would know that Blizzard compensated a large chunk of players for losing play time and yes i was one of those players. i and my guildies couldn't log in to WOW for 5 days straight because of regular crashes.

     

    If you're calling him a liar, then you'll call me one too, I guess.  I ALSO was playing WoW at launch after the open beta and getting a nelf druid to level 17 and the game ran beautifully.  Starting over with a new toon after launch, yes....there were some problems, like characters freezing when looting, some disconnects from the server, and assorted other small things, BUT....not any 40 days free game time worth.  I too, like he said, got about 10 days of free time from these problems.  So either you were on a super shitty server, or we weren't playing the same game, because it wasn't all THAT bad as you're making it out to be.  At least it wasn't on Lothar server.

    You should apologize for basically calling that other poster a liar just because his release experience differed from yours. Now that I've basically done the same thing to you....doesn't feel too good, does it?

    Yeah i cried myself to sleep. *rolls eyes*.

    However, you said 'if' i am calling him a  liar...which i didn't. So due to your own lack of reading skills and assumption you went on to write this rant good job. And no i didn't call him a  liar. But WOW launch didn't go all that smooth like people here always try to make it look.

     

    You clearly insinuated he wasn't telling the truth.

    This is how the introduction of patch 1.1.5 begins. I have to say I lol'd since the last thing you could say about TOR is that it includes a living breathing world which is always evolving. Is Bioware really so naive that they think their world can be described in this way?

    <snip>

    To paraphrase the BW marketing-speak:

    "Many Massively Multiplayer Online games are built around living, breathing worlds that are always evolving, but Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ is different. It is in fact a snapshot of a "living, breathing world" which is continually being Photoshopped, as opposed to evolving dynamically."

    Too many people seem focused on writing out why they hate this game or that game.  Stop playing, stop typing, go play something else or nothign at all.  Nobody really gives a flying f*** why you don't like something.

    I'm curious what makes a game a "WOW Clone". I never played WoW, really, so I wonder what is meant by the term WoW clone.

    I played DAOC before WoW came out. We had guilds, guild houses, conquerable keeps, dungeons, all kinds of classes with abilities, crafting, grouping, teams, PvP, RvR. What makes a game a "WoW Clone" and not a "DAOC Clone"?

    As for the "living breathing world", the fact that SWTOR doesn't have one is the reason I quit during beta, and have not purchased the game. I would love it if they added that to the game.

    So, in essence, your statement (and others) actually confirms the issue the OP raises - that BW is describing their game as  something other than it is.

    It seems, then, that the issue raised by the OP is valid and BioWare is in fact blowing smoke in the quoted bit. That is the actual point they're raising. It's not that the game world is bland and lifeless, as many have noted. It's that BW is openly claiming otherwise.

    For the people complaining about others complaining about the game. There's a very easy solution to that, you know: Don't read threads covering a topic you're not interested in. Don't spend your time or energy responding to them. If you don't like the topic, leave. Start a thread, or follow others covering a topic that you are interested in.

    It would do well for people to realize that a thread on these forums does not require their "approval" or interest to be valid.

    Posts such as #2, #5, #8, etc are less useful than they claim the OP to be. They don't add to the discussion. Instead, they attempt to derail, distract from or discourage others from having it.

    I wonder if some of the people complaining about others' discussions do that in person. If you're in a room, at a party maybe, and overhear someone on the other side of the room having a discussion you're not interested in, on a topic you're maybe tired of, do you walk over, invite yourself into the group and immediately begin complaining about how you're tired of people talking about that subject? Do you try to get them to stop talking about it?

    Would you appreciate someone barging into a discussion you're having and doing the same to you?

    No one begs you to enter a thread, read it and give your feedback. If you read the first post and find it's something that doesn't interest you for whatever reason, then leave the thread and let others who do want to discuss it carry on. It's a hell of a lot more logical than rudely interrupting the discussion to complain because others are discussing it, no?

     

     

     

    While I agree with you and point 100%, not even half of this thread's "viewers" even bothered to read your post (I believe it would fall under "TL;DR"), let alone let it sink in and make a difference.   The sad truth is, common sense or a shred of logic have no place here.

    Anymore I just come here for the show.  Sort of like tuning into a TV show for some comic relief. 

    It would be great, and for all I know some people are doing it, if there was a large forum that required specific criteria to be able to read and post.  I'm not going to start a war by giving my opinion on what those criteria should be, but I guess in my perfect world there would be such a thing.

    In the meantime, this is just entertainment like many other things.

    I do applaud you for trying to instill a bit of common sense, though.  That's the only reason I responded.

    Now back to the show.  image

    Easy answer,

     

    WoW did clone most it's features from games like EQ and DAoC but in the end WoW won the subscriptions campaign. WoW has had more subscriptions than all western games before and after combined, so all the studios think to have a successful MMO they must do what WoW is doing, hints WoW clone.

    At least not vent themselves about the supposedly "living, breathing worlds"

     

    Here's what some paying customers are saying about on the official foums:

    #2 - Dead, Lifeless, Boring, Stagnant, Monotone, Uninspired Worlds. 

    -As a creator of this game how you, in good conscience, look at the world as seen HERE and tell us you put any effort into creating these worlds?

    -So heavily instanced that you hardly see another soul while leveling reinforcing the lifeless husk of a world.

    sp if i read correctly this:the world are dynamic but the mmo isnt since it the mmo is build around it, not as a foundation?i sure hope i miscomprehend ,cause if there literally was more then one way to understand the italic phrase, now we know why swtor has had issue!

  • KillyoxKillyox Member CommonPosts: 424

    I was sure SWTOR will flop and will be mediocre at most, that it'll be another WoW.

    I bought it, played free month, got 1x 50lvl and 2x 24s. I subbed for another months. I only played 2 hours in the month i bought. It ended yesterday. Game is boring, has many many flaws.

    Basically it's everything i expected it will be - nothing special medicore game that's poor sci-fi wow wannabe.

    Either way what does it matter?  Why are you so upset about people expressing their views?

    Well said.  We post at the permission of the owners of MMORPG, which desire the traffic from discussion.   Unlike the comment, they do not want people to keep their opinions and comments about MMORPGs to themselves.

    And notice, rather than address the OP's critisims, by citing in-game evidence to refute the his claims, we see the OP's decision to post attack.     I find the OP's position to be rather credible.   Someone can certainly enjoy TOR, but that doesn't affect the crediblity of the OP's position.   Compared to many other MMORPGs, the world of TOR is rather sterile and 'single player' feeling.

    I would not agree that the STASI police force Moderator squade of MMORPG wants us to say bad things about games. As soon as you point out flaws and that a game might not be so good as the fanboy brigade make it out to be. You get Baned for silly reasons. Like posting offtopic or any other little excuse they can find to get you off the site.

    That SWTOR is a medicore game is not something that they want spread around.. I whonder why that is? getting fat money cheaks in the mail maybe?? Only games you can trash are Korean once like AION and TERA you can go all out there and not risk anything.. Iv tested this out so I know..

    If you are looking for newthinking or something different , you might look for something completley different than a mmo.

    You cant take away the basic ingredients for the MMO

    Isn't that exactly what Bioware did?

    Taking away the basic ingredient for a mmo?

    A living, evolving WORLD.

    I mean WOW get's a lot of flack for being to simple and lineair but SW:TOR takes it to the next level.

     

    A RPG, are all about live your char, that can be done by gain levels from 1 - ***

    You gather materials/Gear/Reputation/Comendation/Levels/Freinds/Guild you name it.

    Next thing you need are a place to RP in, in this case StarWars Univerese with all its Planets, there you gain levels/gather  and so on.

    In wow for the next example,

    You gain levels from 1-85/gather/Reputaion/gain Freinds//guilds/Gear and so on.

    Now you need somewhere to RP, and there you got Aseroth

    others MMORPG are the same,

    Gather/so on and so forth/ ****/

    And a place to RP.

    Thats the concept of a RPG "MMORPG"

    RPG comes from Penn and paper game, where the concept was born , and that was in the 80s wich i particepeted in.

    If you change these settings of what a RPG are, you dont have a RPG anymore

    Than you have Created a new for of style/game/gengre.

    MMO just stands for Masivly multiplayer Online, wich emplays you are more than 128 players on the same Shard, more than 128 players counts as MMO, and RPG , is just Role Playing Game.

     

    That said all games like Acherons Call, Ultima Online Wow Everquest 1-2 Starwars Galaxies Star Wars the old Republic Guild Wars , i can make the list long, comes from the same Ingredient wich is RPG, if you are looking for something els you arent looking for a RPG.

    and by adding a forth pillar in swtor "Voiceover" still makes it a RPG, no different , it just have more flavor to it, you can put 10 or 100 or eaven 1000 new flavors to A game, its still a RPG

    What Bioware did is just a flavor its still the basic like all other MMORPGs out there,

     

    This should be stickied for those who continue to not grasp the concept.

     

    Talk about the many naive statements people make on these boards and even those who try so hard making their arguement soooo valid.

    I have to give some of you props for being clever and smart about some of these discussions. Though, some of you miss the mark and lack common sense. Would be interest to see your everyday lives, maybe the lack thereof.

     

    thekid1 by far made one the most brillant post on these boards! Thx for sharing it Ztekan!

    MMORPGs aren't easy, You're just too PRO!

I think we get that for some of you somehow ToR has wronged you and Bioware is the girlfriend that banged your best friend but aren't even the haters tired of these?

                More like were trying to save people on the fence about this game our heartbreak if you get where I'm coming from!  We are trying to save the world!!!!hmmmmmm

    I would give you a guest pass to SWOTR, but then I wouldn't be able to find a way to live with myself afterwards....
