I'm not sure what is worse/better - to be able to buy end-game equipment directly for $50-300 or pay $180 annual subscription fee and still not get desired items due to RNG, DKP, guild politics, not being main tank, not hunter, not puller or whatever crap excuses devs use to justify 3% (per week per 20-40 ppl in raid) drop chance for raids?
You're not paying the sub for items, you're paying it for access to the game in its entirety.
Correction: I'm not paying for the game and its bullcrap RNG rigged to make sure I'll pay forever and still not getting all the items I wanted.
You do realize from Trions viewpoint the mechanic is working as intended, right?
If they can get people to regularly raid while chasing the prize more power to them.
I burned out on gear grinding MMOs a long time ago, just not something I enjoy anymore.
Pick an mmo that doesn't have people racing to the end? That is just part of today's gamer. It's always a race to get to the end and then move on. One of the main reasons I think that western devs don't make mmo's anymore. I really don't think it has to do with the quality of the game. For you maybe, but not me. If I don't like a game, I just don't play it. I won't finish it just because.Wizardry said:When a game design is bad,everything is a race to end game,this has been going on ever since Wow was released.MMOman101 said:So I tried the Rift Prime experience and I am very disappointed. I started about a week after it came out and was on a 2 week pass. By the time my pass was up many people had already hit 50 and the queue to do lower level content was getting kind of long. I made it to level 19 on two desperate characters. maybe I should have just power leveled one character, but I wanted to try and enjoy a slower paced leveling and hopefully get to see a lot of the early content. I am not sure why so many people raced up to the highest level, but they did.
I did not renew my subscription. I really wanted to enjoy the game at what I would consider a reasonable pace.
Has anyone noticed the same thing?
Nobody cares about Lore or rpg elements,everything is a veee line directly towards speed leveling.
There is a game world !!! Oh really,where can i level the fastest..there are npc's to tal kto ,oh really ,where is the best starting zone to level up the fastest.There are many classes to enjoy,oh really which one is the easiest to solo and level up fast.
See the trends,VERY shallow gaming is what games and players are all about now a days,it is very sad times for quality gaming.
