  • Does Classic Charm Make for an MMO Worth Playing? - Shroud of the Avatar Review - MMORPG.com

    I would rather play LOTR 
    As if someone wouldn't want to play LotRO more than many other games. It's one of the best tab-target MMOs of that era. :tongue:

    Actually,  I'd probably rather play SotA.

    LOTRO was the very first game I quit because I felt like I was playing WOW all over again, a pattern which would repeat itself for many more games to come.




    Those two games play almost nothing alike. That would be akin to likening EVE and Ryzom to each other because they have "skills".

    What exactly about playing Shroud would be better than playing WoW or LotRO. What does Shroud do better that WoW doesn't?

    yeah because if its on internet it got to be true
    Did you actually read the statement from the US State Department that is linked in the full article. It is on the internet and, in this case, it IS true.

    @Sovrath Given the tens of thousands of words I churn out on a weekly basis, it's a wonder there aren't more mistakes. I appreciate the heads up, but a PM would work too. Just saying. 
    You're assuming he has the ability to read for comprehension you insensitive clod! :lol: :trollface:

    Over time, this will be one of the best out.  I am still playing strong and just finished the main story quest last night to obtain the Shroud of the Avatar.  I am hoping that they will add more group content down the road, that seems a little lacking at the moment.

    The combat definitely does not suck.  I have yet to find another MMO with combat decks, combos, and charging of abilities.  The game is grindy, but not everyone is anti grind.  Not many games offer any meaningful character progression, and you definitely get rewarded for the grind which makes it worth it.  For the old schoolers, it will definitely grow on you, but please don't read these reviews and write it off without giving it a fair shake.

    Wizard 101 combat and deck mechainics is No Way ,Shape or form remotely similar at all to SOTA combat ..

      Just sayin
    The deck systems have a lot in common. The combat execution doesn't.

    I just want a great PVE game period...im tired of all these games tacking on PVP to try and please that crowd.



    Agreed. Lacking that right now.
    There is a veritable sea of PvE games.  Sounds like it doesn't matter what comes out you'll still be in the same boat.
    You should list 10 for him. That would help him out, because if they're there he obviously doesn't know about them or consider them that way from his perspective. Instead of choosing the douche canoe route, use a little empathy and help him out.
