    That's not instancing.

     

    You can be confident you can run from one end of Norrath to the other without ever hitting "LOADING PLEASE WAIT".

    The art style im not crazy about...looks like WoW and Guild Wars 2 had a baby.No thanks,wish they would have went with their own unique style rather than go for the kiddy crap.

     

    graphics were expected,looks similar to PS2

     

    Also if they are going to telegraph the mob AOE's with the red outlines.Ala Guild Wars 2 or The Secret World.Thats is also a negative in my book..

    This game smells like D3. I was going to buy a new pc for this game, looks like ill be buying a ps4 instead. Its obviously made for platform in mind, anyone who doesnt think so is dillusional.

    If SOE can make all these concepts work together smoothly, this game will be the best "virtual world" we have ever seen image

     

    EQN is now officially at the top of my "wanted" list. By a fairly wide margin...

    I like what i've read and it certainlly feels like a newer, better way to do sandbox gaming in an mmorpg.  the first thing i see in most sandbox games is , "look how easy it is for someone to destroy and steal what you've done with no real story reason for it". 

    Things I like, the ability to create a much different world than other servers as far as story wise.

    From what I've read would have to say you are in the definite minority.

    I agree with what you've said. I will very likely give it a try myself though I dislike the graphics for the same reasons you cite!

    People have always hated the zoning loading, I have to think they've been smart enough to have gotten away from zones. New games just don't do that anymore, I'd be hugely disappointed if they haven't advanced beyond that kind of setup.

    I see a small handful of the "classes" have been revealed. Here's hopeing that we get a Magician like EQ1, with the 4 distinct types of elemental pets. I found EQ2 disappointing in that it didn't have the Magicians in the same way as EQ1. I loved how independent EQ1 Magicians were also, being able to call up all those wonderful utility items was great.

    It ended with a successful mmo

    Your basing this off the negative threads on this site?  You realize the angry ones are the most vocal.  All the positive threads are focused on its features because they have no gripe against the graphics.  And if you look at most of the polls people made on this site about the games graphics they are usually voted about 50/50.

    Just read this in relation to the "Landmark" game, it gives some idea about how housing is apparently going to work

    "One other thing that will make the housing enthusiasts happy: Remember those templates we talked about? They can be used in EverQuest Next. So any really cool housing you design (on the Norrathian landmass, that is) can be used to construct the same structure when you earn a plot of land."

    This thread is way too long to read now ;)

     

    Still, the more news that comes out, the better this game sounds. I quite like the gamebreakertv coverage, though this site has some excellent interviews.

     

    I don't want to wait too long; looking forward to making myself one of those sexy Kerra, and hopefully a Ratonga too ;)

    I like it also. It's not what everyone is looking for though. They want more realistic looking characters/environment. The aesthetics will grow on most people as they begin to play. When ever I go back and log into WOW I initially think how bad things look but after playing a few hours I no longer notice it.  Am I having fun? Yes, and that's what boils down to!

    personally I LOVE them they remind me of Disney animation.

    I think there wonderful. ultra Realistic is such a waste of resources and an artstyle that is slightly cartoonish looks better to me anyway.

    when theres a couple of hundred people in the same spot and the frames are actually decent, I guess you can thank the art director later.

    My mantra has always been no levels so im pleasantly surprised. Actually there is so much stuff favorable to me it almost seems like they read my mind. lol.

     

    lets hope it works out.

    They are shooting for a seamless world. How that works not sure but they are shooting for a sandbox game and they tend to be one large open world. But this is something they are still working on. May end up like WoW with continents each being one area but no official word yet other then they are working on a seamless tech.

    Dont take a vocal group as a majority. These forums do not capture how most gamers feel. This is just a snippet of gamers that like MMMOs and forums.
