I'm an ancient school gamer, you know those guys talking about how old UO, EQ1 classic, WoW classic, DAoC classic, and EQ2 classic were like the best ever. That is the sort I want but finally accepting those games are long gone never to return.
So here I am looking for something with a trial (I don't mind a sub or buying a game as long as can try first) that is newer with newer graphics. I like the rpg style with many seperate class's (I like my alts), decent server population, preferably at least some group content before end game (I hate soloing but sadly its all there is these days).
I really didn't like Tera (questing felt so dull and empty and just hit lvl 10 in like 45 mins and rarely can get the launcher to work) and Tera's combat system just felt slow and awkward. Wildstar I tried in beta but was just *meh* but as its gone f2p I *might* get desperate to try it again... maybe.
On me. I'm into PvE, can't really care about PvP but I did love DAoC's rvr system but no interest in something like Camelot Unchained that is pure pvp. I do NOT do P2W games or games that are huge cash shop hounds. Put some looks there but to be on par in game I shouldn't need to drop money in a cash shop. Let me pay a sub instead. I like the story in SW:TOR but once do it all its *meh*. Rift was fun for awhile but also gets boring and empty feeling inside. FFXIV:ARR was fun but with alts being useless at a point its just nonstop raiding and then sit around and wait for resets. I also like raiding but don't want it to be something that feels like if I don't have 50ms ping I'm dead like ffxiv:arr). The journey however is important to me, I want to feel some immersion / storyline rather then *omg my dog ran away, please kill 10 rats, rat bosses. rat masters, rat gods) until max level.... which is where you fight the rat dragon of course...
Not sure what to say beyond that because what I really want isn't there and not likely coming. I need to find something new that I can get involved in. Ohh and please, not interested in something many years old already. EQ2:TLE, wow classic server, and so on just won't do me anymore.
