  • You're absolutely right, Turbine did a great job with the game in my opinion. I think it stands up to other contemporary fantasy MMOs quite well. I know D&D has always been about groups, but I think that originally started with the PnP game's at…
  • After two abortive attempts at it, I'm now playing the trial and enjoying the game, but I do have some problems with it. It seems there isn't nearly enough content. While I love that every quest is a uniquely scripted adventure, I'm disappointe…
  • I think the author's mistake is to assume that high-end graphics and innovative gameplay are at odds with one another. If a game fails to deliver either one it's not likely to get my money. I don't believe it's a focus on graphics that's hamperin…
  • And they always con purple no matter what your level.
    in Paladins? Comment by Theo September 2006
  • I think most nerfs were for balance reasons. The only thing I fault the devs for is for not making them in beta. Regen was clearly overpowered from the beginning, and instead of launching the game with the reasonably effective set it is now they jus…
  • I think it's pretty much good vs. evil rather than a moral viewpoint. Of course, you can imagine your characters' are motivated by whatever appeals to you.
  • No, the two games are separate, though linked. You can play one without the other.

  • I never found the PvE game to be much of a challenge. I ended up leaving some really great powers unused a lot of the time because I just didn't need them to succeed against the AI. Against another player, I had to pull out all the stops and use eve…
  • I liked the old system better, in that crafters had to rely on one another for components to create items. It was sort of the equivalent of grouping on the adventuring side. The only problem I had was the lack of offline selling, making it difficult…
  • It's a fun game with a great combat system and cool character customization. While the game is definitely a repetitive grind, I had a lot of fun just trying out new power sets. Leveling is pretty fast in general, though it does noticeably slow down …
  • It takes roughly 100 heroes to take down a floating blob and its many smaller blobs. It's challenging, but not impossible, and well done in that it takes the coordinated efforts of every hero present. Unfortunately the floating sparkly blobs aren't …
  • The adventure zones are strictly PvE. There are a handful of zones specifically designated as PvP zones, and once you step inside you have a brief countdown until you're open game. Some zones are open PvP (everyone for himself) while others are hero…
  • Yes and no. There is an alien invasion storyline and a zone with a crashed spaceship, but it's all pretty static. The end game is mostly PvP or finishing up story arcs. There's only one raid encounter in the game at this time.
  • According to www.mmogchart.com the population has taken something of a nosedive lately, but remains quite solid. Looks like it's leveling off for the moment. The servers still seem pretty well populated to me though. It's a fun game with a lot to d…
  • I will say that I don't think the solo gameplay is limited. Granted, there are some challenges you can only meet with a group (or if you gain quite a few levels before trying on your own), but that's true of any MMO and probably should be. I solo my…

  • Originally posted by Obadno This is a preatty accruet list but shouldnt non-linear andvancement be in the pros?? i didnt think it was a good thing to have a game where lvl 1-10 you go here lvl 10 15 you go here lvl 15 you do this.....etc Personal…
  • I just cancelled my account as well and encountered the same survey. I may be alone in this, but I always fill out the surveys completely and honestly, because I'm hoping they'll use the information to make this or future games better. It makes se…
  • Originally posted by Tithrielle Guess so, now there's no excuse for old players to not try out the progression servers... Other than the dated graphics and tired gameplay, of course. ;-) JMHO obviously. I played EQ for a long time. I loved it b…
