Had this thread a little while ago but it died.
What MMO are you playing RIGHT THIS FUCKING SECOND?
The only MMO I can feel immersed in since the first week of playing WoW.
Except in WoW it was mostly due to novelty while here it's actually because of great atmosphere.
Can't seem to quit FFXIV, for better or worse. Probably for worse.
I'm already done with mine
Tree of Savior? Is that that spiritual successor to RO? Any time frame as to when it's coming out?
I can't deal with the GCD and the model brightness.
The amount of farming required to make the gold for a fucking lvl 70 set is tremendous.
Which is in pretty high contrast to the previous sets, which were easily bought from the money i got from quests.
It's not like it's bad or anything. It's closer to older WoW than modern WoW is, has a ting of nostalgic feel to it.
My primary issue is I'm forever tottering on the precipices between loving it, and loathing it. The almost pure vertical progression is a horrific design, since content that was difficult months ago is trivialized and thrown to the wayside as casual content. A lot of things, like the new PvP, have a strong foundation, but an astounding lack of foresight that make me think they're just rushing shit out without playtesting exploits in the slightest, etc. For instance, the game has a Vote Dismiss function, to kick out griefers and afkers, makes sense. You cannot dismiss while in battle however, which also makes sense.
The problem is in PvP, you are constantly in a fucking state of battle. Ergo you cannot Vote Dismiss. Ergo shitters can just afk at the base and soak up the PvP exp, as long as they run an algorithm or sit by their computer to make sure their character registers movement every couple of minutes.
I would say it is the best MMO out on the market, but it is a 7/10.
The ''it becomes really coo at 50'' is a shitty meme.
By lvl 30 you should have an idea.
As someone who cleared it during the first month i say it's completely not worth it besides rushing.
I really wanted it to be good, I mean the combat system is shit, but passable, the gear looks very good, the dungeons and pvp is ok
But man, that fucking grind just to look decent, it's fucking unbearable, why can't we have MMOs were getting the gear is skill-based.
Is world versus world dead at this point? I thought Guild Wars Combat was really cool but nobody fucking talks or parties up in that game its so ridiculous. I find it strange that people will play an MMO and try to do it solo.
ESO.... found a good group of guys and gals on my server and for internet peeps we get along really well, reminds me of old school WoW when you'd meet your best e-friend in a /2 pug or from the guild you joined from meeting someone in your party....
Wow, on that note, it isn't just rose-tinted glasses in the sense of how much community mattered when Realms were per say their own "universes" and people were forced to interact solely with players on that Realm. LFD is sure convenient and nice, but it definitely took away something unique that we will never ever see again on such a massive scale because all of these new MMOs have adopted the same fucking features as IC WotLK.
It's not without its faults, but it's been fun.
Dont know, I was always playing WoW/Allods (yep, Allods) and started getting into the newer MMOs just this last year, I am only level 30 in Rift... having fun so far. Rift and SWTOR are the only MMOs on that list with no mains. I left out GW2 as well.
If a game is constantly updating with content, a subscription model makes sense. You're paying for the continuously new content. Hell, when offline games get new content, you pay for the DLC, which is basically the same.
My main beef with F2P is the only game I have played that got it the "most right" was PSO2. The hybrids are always the best, give the F2P shitters a decent experience, but also allow a subscription option.
Pretty alive, but I see "alive" as there's always more than 15+ on in the main cities / regularly see people out in the zones leveling or what not, and then finally being able to do end game (which isn't really hard to get into if you find a guild on your server who is focused in that.)
GW2 adds new content, but most MMO's don't update that frequently or it's just small fixes.
I'm looking at it longterm, because after a while, it starts to get ridiculous how much you've spent on the game while it's still the same content-wise.
They stopped it. Season 2 is confirmed to be all permanent content, with story instances being buyable with gems if you don't login in the 2 weeks it's released.
And they've been a lot better with the content on season 2 too.
ESO. Been running a solid EP guild since launch. Incoming opinions.
Love the setting, love the lack of silly mounts and obnoxious armor, legitimately enjoy much of the questing (in AD especially), crafting and gear progression are awesome, and character building is the best I've seen in an mmo I've played. My only real complaints are the lack of nameplates, and PvP isn't rewarding enough even if i still enjoy it.
not him, but everything that looks interesting in ArcheAge i have seen better in legit sandbox MMOs, and i wouldn't have to suffer the obnoxious korean setting and stale combat
WoW of course.
Might check out Wakfu though.
are you fucking kidding? its a while before you can even dodge again than its the *exact* same as every other hotbar mmo
Wildstar, Tera, even neverwinter have better combat systems than GW2
LaTale and Vindictus. I'm not particularly invested in either, but they're fun.
I'm excited for Tree of Saviour.
Soft targetting is actually easier than tab targetting, less stupid sure, but it functions identically. Combat involves all the same brainless shit except more single-skill spam and slightly less rotation spam. Oh and you run in circles while doing it.
Your "combat" is a joke even compared to shit like Wildstar
Then again, these are mmos, so standards are low as fuck sure, but by comparison to Tera, Vindictus, even shit like Mortal, Darkfall, or ESO... GW2 is just more mindless spam with a bit more strafing
Do you get used to the artstyle?
That's essentially the only thing putting me and my group of friends off. FFXIV has great graphics and shit so the immersion is there, but I don't think there would be any sense of that in Wildstar
W* isn't optimized at all. the graphics look like shit (despite the intent of it being a cartoony game) but your computer may still have issues running it
also if you use AMD, don;t even bother
Its bascically the same traditional style of hotbar combat but actually requires you to move. Its not near the level of some action or RPG games, but its the best of the MMO combat systems outside Tera.
>implying B&S will ever be seen in the west
>Asheron's Call is going F2P with a $10 buy-in next month
Anyone here going to play it? I played it last in the early 2000's, and despite dated graphics it's probably the most deep MMO out there
>giant fucking world
>projectiles like arrows and spells actually can be dodged
>different levelling system
>bunch of silly easter eggs and jokes put in that you can find
None. I wish I wasn't so fucking autistic so I could actually make friends or something. I have been playing a lot of MMOs the past few years. Most recently ffxiv. Finally left because it got to the point (like it does with me and every MMO) where I just log on to do dailies and maybe a random dungeon or two before I logout.
Why can't I into friends?
Pretty sure it didn't have paywalls before it went F2P, so it's either a monthly fee or having to pay some money to progress further
At least you can get past some of the paywalls for free if you like.
All the paywalls can be bypassed by grinding but fuck me is it some serious fucking shit to do, I still havent taken off the fucking currency limit which means I keep having to backtrack to sell shit and make room, as soon as I buy that I have to go and grind for hours on end again to buy quest packs. Very sad to see because the game itself is massive and has a nice look to it, its whats kept me playing.
The same thing happened to me and DCUO. The combat was fun, and it was a blast to run around Gotham and Metropolis while grappling onto buildings and shit like that, but the constant paywalls were annoying, and even being "premium" (spent $5 or more on the game) gave you so little that it's not feasible compared to subbing. The thing that finally got me to quit the game was when they went full retard and made it so that you could no longer buy DLC with SOE's monopoly money. They required a credit card for that, and I'll be damned if I give Sony my credit card information.
I tried numerous times. I talked to a few people who interviewed me or whatever, but then never got back to me. I was in the vg thread constantly when I was playing. I suppose I should have taken the hint back before the game came out when instead of deciding on a server for everyone to play together on everyone splintered off into their own groups.
I ended up joining a normalfag FC that was alright for awhile, but then ended up leaving that due to the leader and his girlfriend being idiots.
you can unlock the content with a lots of grinding
but the movement and animations is feels like you are on ice or something
and the skill delay, there are a lots of problems with that game
and the "pvp" is shit
I think there's three people on the entire board who play it.
Dragon Quest X. After going through so many MMOs I've finally found the one. What a long fucking journey. Old FFXI and Vanilla/BC WoW were good, but then a huge gap of nothing but fucking garbage. So happy now.
Eldurr Scrulls Online.
Got it while it was on 50% off, I want to play an MMO but all of my friends are being giant faggots and playing dota exclusively. By the sound of it TESO was pretty much single player:the multiplayering. So made sense.
Still trying to find favourite class though.
Havent touched the PvP, Im trying to play it as an RPG and not and MMO if you know what I mean, Im in it to explore and get comfy not race to max level and grind raids etc. May end up stopping before long, I was beginning to enjoy it before the obvious "the game is free but you have to pay to have fun" shit started happening.
Pic of character I guess, If theres one thing I like about the game its that you can look however you want whenever you want, this should be a staple of every RPG where you can change your appearance, I can finally be a heavy class character thats wearing a tabard and not lose stats because its light equipment.
Dorf master race
That better be Heroic, anon
Its a mix. You have to aim with crosshair, but under the hood its still pretty much calling abilities.
If you are looking for combat tera or age of conan are probably better options.
Heroic pugs exist on good servers
Also, mfw running anything but heroic
Dude is a pvper with no heroic achievements; 100% sure it's norms. Sorry to burst your bubble, but we got ourselves a casual on our hands.
What are my options if I'm looking for an MMORPG with immersive world and no silly themepark hubs and waifu dress ups? Old games are fine as long as the community is still active.
>you will never play an mmorpg with actual quests and puzzles again
It's a shame, Turbine really loved the game and put a ton of effort into it
I'll probably put $10 into it and go back, primarily to have something to play again.
It kind of suffers from Deus Ex syndrome though, the graphics aren't the best to look at, and the game is reasonably complex, so it's not something that many people would go back and play, and you wouldn't get a new game of it without completely missing the point and casualizing it too much.
Isn't that the DAoC spiritual successor with a PvP focus?
Started playing TERA after playing RO2 for nearly a year, because of the Dark Whisper update, which made the already tedious grind for Master levels even worse, and the GUI made the game lag even worse. That, and it was a huge money sink, the only way to get the materials needed to upgrade your weapons and armour was with real money.
TERA has a far better combat system and better lolis.
Lord of the Rings (its got paywalls but they can be bypassed with ingame currency) Guild Wars 1 and possibly 2. I cant really think of many to be honest. Alot of decent MMOs are dying or are dead.
I hear a lot of people saying the game got ultra-jew and shitty, I have good memories of the early times though
>decide to level cooking and music and shit
>meet up with a few people
>we sit around a campfire, cooking stuff and playing music
it was probably the single most comfy MMO to ever be made
Can't say I'm inclined to buy it after all the buyers remorse threads on /v/. Could consider it just for the journey alone, but no good endgame is a serious flaw.
Already thought about it, does subbing give you all the content or there's stuff in shop available only if you pay even more?
Thanks for recommendations.
It actually got anti-jew.
>Free inventory plus for everyone.
>Free weekly rebirths for everyone.
>Being under level 1000 gives you free daily rebirths and full skill resets.
>Free mounts for beginners
>Character cards for beginners
>Talent system cuts the grind in half.
It's crazy. A nexon game becoming less pay2win.
What server are you on? I run into people fucking everywhere!
Literally, I'm on an RP server.
Been having a blast with my Spell Slinger, though once I get him max level, I'm not sure if I am going to stick with him. Going to try Warrior a bit.
I made a task of collecting all the armours from different dungeons before I stopped playing, was alright while it lasted. I had no interest in grinding for Legendaries however. Way too much work for what is essentially an achievment and a skin that looks like ass.
Engineer is pretty fun by the way, dont just roll grenades only try and do it your way. Grenades are effective but its so fucking boring.
>tfw Forsaken World became shit after Nightfall expansion
>tfw a game I truly loved since closed beta is now a faggy shitfest
>tfw every priv server is high-rate and features latest updates
I was suprised too at the amount of people playing it considering how noone ever talks about it here. Its an OK game in terms of MMOs, the world is fucking massive.
Everything is available if you sub. I personally would rather just pay one off payments for specific things I need and thats it but thats just me.
I subbed to AC this month, played for the first time. I'm amazed at even the lowest dungeons, they're more like single player RPG dungeon delving, and not shitty grind quests. Blows my mind MMOs 15 years ago had this shit figured out yet all we get nowadays is lazy retard proof design.
Playing at the PvE server for now because Darktide is pretty scary with its full loot drop PvP and houndreds of veterans with bad temper.
>Not Playing The Secret World
It's like you don't like using your browser to look up a fictional company, using an ID you found in game to log in just to find out the name of who some guy was married to.
Or having to decode a full message in Morse Code to get the coordinates to some important shit.
Or having to die on purpose and use your ghost to speak to a ghost in jail to get a vital clue.
Or pass several legit tests in an underground tomb where a single failure will kill you.
AND THIS IS THE FIRST FUCKING ZONE!
How's Tera nowadays? I last played it right before it went F2P and for a little after. Has anything changed or improved at all? Same thing for GW2, I stopped about a month after it came out.
Yeah, too bad its shit now. It was good initially, but then instead of adding more shit to sandbox they decided to shit up crafting system 3 or 4 times and end up making linear progression bullshit.
It's gotten a lot better with this patch, but they always take 2 steps forward 1 step back. Once they flesh out jobs and fix ARES missions not spawning, I'm thinking it'll be just fine
Guild Wars 2. Over 450 hours and think I finally found a decent guild to do dungeons with. I really like this game - it's hooked me like no other MMO
Agreed, most old MMOs just designed the game as a standard RPG but with certain areas geared towards multiple people, including both enemy strength and the fact that puzzles sometimes require 2+ people
By the way, find the Subway as soon as possible, there are some liches that'll wreck your shit if you're too level, but if you follow the right path and run past every single one, you can jump down a huge hole which you'll survive with just a sliver of HP left.
But at the bottom is something magical, something you'll want to attune a portal to
At the bottom of the subway is an entire room of portals that take you to almost every major town in the game, and since the map is XBOX HUEG you'll need it
>tfw getting my engineer to 80 finally after a long hiatus
>immediately caught up in a train of people capturing those shrines, defending shit and killing bosses
>tfw immediately started a warrior for some straight up damage instead of condition shit
Shit was cash. Kind of like the new living story area too, can't find any of the damn chests out there now that i got lockpicks though.
Camelot will be indeed something like DAoC 2.0. They dropped more ideas this week, some of them really cool - the game map will be a huge collection of islands, and conquering a new area will stick together this new land mass to your realms territory. This way the game world will be constantly changing based on the ongoing battles. Sick idea for RvR world if you ask me.
There's nothing to show for the game yet though, they're didn't even implement combat.
I think Living Story: Season 2 has really been great. The new areas are pretty cool and some of the encounters are interesting. Plus I'm intrigued by where the story goes
I liked it until my guild disbanded one day when I was offline. Have fun while it lasts.
You got me, I haven't.
Played since first Beta(really an early alpha) test. Said they would open up shio in February when the open world wasn't even available and we were only testing the PvP instances.
Was actively testing and posting for 6 months until I dropped it.
Red5 never gave a shit about anyone and the progress and ambitions were misplaced.
See an update about a year after I dropped, played it for 40 hours. Still feels like massive shit despite playing everything the game has to offer.
Unless you're telling me they've done a complete overhaul, the game only offers me to drone through the game during an afternoon, at best.
It could have been the best game ever made, but they fucked it over.
So if you're telling me they fixed the game, I might have to call you a liar or it is the second coming because that is impossible with the direction they have been going since the first test. With other media covering the game, it only seems more fleshed out, but nothing worth investing in, ever.
So please, red5, leave this board.
Well considering they just released 3 new zones, a legit leveling system, ARES jobs, revamped crafting, a chosen warfront, OWPVP and research progression all in the last patch...
I'm not saying you have to like it, but it's changed a fuckton dude, give it a shot again
Because they're making money off it. Out of all the other shit they charge for, that's probably the worst, and you can still do it legit.
I liked the older system better, and wish maybe they'd give like, 5 tokens at 20 or something similar. Waiting till 40 is ass.
Double what >>254403638 asked, I have a friend that bought it at release and said it was great, but his taste in games can be questionable at best. Also had no interest so I didn't ask.
The music was pretty cool. Shame that now I can't handle all the grind that was needed.
Currently playing FFXIV and also waiting for Tree of Savior.
MMOs focus on characters more than the world now a days. I don't know why they don't just make single player rpgs, where you can be the special snowflake.
MMOs shouldn't be about YOU, its about everyone else and the world.
It's a perfect nix between Rift and Borderlands.
Absolutely. I've logged at least 100 hours in the last two weeks on this game; something I haven't done in years. You get an incredibly generous amount of content F2P. No P2W garbage, not very grindy, constant events going about; it's really fun.
Champions Online would have made an amazing CRPG. Probably overshadowing Freedom Force in customization and action.
BUT THEY JUST HAD TO MAKE IT AN MMO. Like its the spice that makes every food taste amazing.
I highly suggest it. This is seriously the only F2P game I've ever been impressed with. I actually ended up buying the game (expansions) as a result.
Ho shit, Soundtemp?
Color me interested. Lutie was the fucking comfy capitol of Cozyvania.
It went F2P a little over a month ago. Sadly there isn't any 'classes'. There's a decent chunk of talents / builds / combos you can use which makes no two people alike. Weapons having many random stats like borderlands, you don't really find the same weapon twice. Leveling is different than most MMO's.
>i remember playing this game not knowing what to do and i would sell some quest item that you needed in order to get a job for lots of money
It's not on steam. You have to download Glyph (trions version of steam).
played it this weekend for free, got to level 10
no idea how's the game when you're actually allowed to do any of the sandbox stuff, I was too disgusted with the generic korean design and handholding themepark hubs to continue
Download Glyph to install Defiance. It's not much of a hassle though.
There are many different weapon types. They do have a type of "beam" gun that can heal / provide shields on allies. There isn't a static 'class' system. There isn't 'tanks/healer/dps' essentially.
I don't know why that is.
I mean I'm running around with a sword slicing people to death. You can use gernade launchers, or shotguns with explosive rounds, LMG's with high rate of fire or low rate of fire but higher damage; etc. Corrosive sniper rifles, or a flamethrower SMG essentially.
PSO2 and TOR
Never played it at launch because of the whole shitstorm bvut decided to give it a go a month ago and enjoying the story and pvp.
I play it a few hours a day when I am sick of grinding on PSO2.
Yall can add me in game if you want. Happy to help / answer questions. In game on the social menu, search Snore and send a request.
>tfw lineage 2 is the GOAT PvP MMO
>tfw not one soul on /v/ plays it
You have a thing called 'Ego' that is your equivalent to "levels". There's 3 ways to level your Ego. Filling your XP bar (doing anything in the game), completing challenges (variety of things) and leveling your weapon skills (think of WoW). Any weapons that drop for you will always be your current ego. As your ego increases, guns damage / power increases.
It's not at all. You can pay to get up to like 100% xp / rep increase or whatever but its not necessary at all. It's not that grindy at all. The season pass (5 mini xpacs) doesn't add a whole lot more content either. You can play F2P and easily still max out. Maybe only 10% of the content (including some of the guns) is exclusive to buyers.
It's sorta just one big server but has multitudes of instances. I think at any time 400-500 people can be in one 'instance' of the world. You can easily teleport to friends 'instances' though with a click of a button and a 3 second load screen.
>mfw the rank 80 finisher is a textureless piece of shit
>not even a month after they gave everyone free rank 80, they added a gem shop chinese dragon finisher, fully textured, animated, with new sounds
I wish I was still playing Star Conflict, but its dead. Star Citizen is still 2 years or more away from release. I'm sick of WoW. Neverwinter got super boring after a while, rifts was wow, but darker, swtor is wow in space and meh. Mabinogi was shitty, can't stand MOBAs, GW2 was so much ass I can still smell it after installing 5 months ago, champions online is dead to my knowledge, ESO was so incredibly boring and not elder scrolls, Project Torque is dead, Space Cowboy Online is to linear, grindy and dead, RaiderZ had potential, but too grindy, Vindictus was ok for a while, then got boring, hawken I should probably reinstall, strike vector is dead and like, 4 months old, path of exile was fun for a run through but so damn short, warframe was boring, la tale was boring, flyff was boring and grindy, borderlands 2 wants to be diablo 2 but loves sucking cocks, diablo 3 is trash, diablo 2 I've played to death a hundred times, firefall was ok during beta, MWO was shit, planetside 2 is occasionally fun but has no goals to it, elsword is terrible, I can't talk anyone into playing Valkyrie Sky, and I can't remember the others I've tried off the top of my head.
I had a lot of fun with WoW up to cata, but I think I'm just burned out on MMOs nowadays.
Warface is pretty fun though.
But it is translated. Are you guys retarded? There is a fantranslation for the game and story.
Not all the items are as expensive though, was just planning to get some combined scouts for my nt, and was checking their prices hour ago, they where 400m and under per ql 300 piece, someone told me that when they cahnged the global market system, it got hacked and lots of people got free items and credits due to that incident.
Some people got banned for that ofc, but not all accounts that got hold of billions of credits were.
It has/had a monstrous devoted following. I'm the anon shilling for Lineage 2 so I obviously prefer that one, but L1 is still more popular, unfortunately.
Ingame name is Snore.
I remember playing this way back in the closed beta or whatever. Took me only a couple of hours to do all the quests and stuff and when I tried to get out of the area by following the only road I smacked right into an invisible wall. Was most surprised at the time.
I've been playing .hack//fragment on PCSX2 since I never got the chance to play it when it was new. Some guys set up a working lobby server so you can play it online with PCSX2.
I keep timing screenshots poorly. The blur is not very prominent. There's an option to remove it though.
I never even heard of the game until a month ago. It's only been out for a year but just went F2P close to 2 months ago.
Honestly the only MMO that has seemed to ever keep my attention that wasn't WoW back in early WoTLK when I started has been Second Life, kinda realized all MMO's have gimped proper gameplay and everything that I enjoyed about them was the social side/ exploration and character customization... which is basically all there is to Second Life
Some pretty damn neat places to find too
not to mention the best ERP
Yes actually but even though all the games paywalls can be bypassed with ingame currency its pretty annoying that theyre there in the first place. For a F2P MMO its actually pretty good. PvP is shit but when I think of LotR I dont think of MLG shit so theres that.
I'm playing on a private server called L2 Sublimity. It's got around the right exp rate, but it's a little donation heavy and not enough english speakers. I'm having a tough time finding an alternative, however.
Here is their website:
Here is how to make PCSX2 work with online games, assuming you're using an ethernet connection.
If you're using wifi, you have to do this step before the previous one:
Here's how to make a PS2 network profile for PCSX2:
There's a partially translated ISO for the game floating around out there, there may be a link to it on the coldbird forums.
I really wish I could just be into one game. I only played WoW for a while years ago, and there was something satisfying about just slowly progressing through on eexperience rather than many
What's the fastest way to download Tera ?
I had a character level 50 and I stopped and my two friends stopped as well.
I want to get back to it. Just to wait from Black Desert online but 11 hours of dowloading time is to much.
Is there an alternative to the official server ?
I'll post it here too, since the other thread seems to be blinded by nostalgia
I don't really get the deal with this game.
I tried it recently(again) and it feels pretty lacking in several places.
Can you even walk or jump in this game?
What makes it so good that people are crying about it?
It is pretty much solely based around PvP, fairly balanced around it, and loads of fun.
Plus, large scale castle sieges every week with big clans (100+) players fighting for control of them.
It's pretty Korean though, so it's not for everyone.
You had to have played it when it was in its prime to have appreciated it. The draw was that it was actually difficult, especially after you completed the campaign and the difficulty ramped up, leaving the hub was a challenge because everything could slap your shit. Made people band together and beat it, other MMOs didnt and still dont do this.
>that fucking quest in shiverpeak where you HAD to run from those super special snowflake enemies that would rape you senseless until you could get the armor afterwards
>tfw trying to cross crystal desert on a warrior/ele combo and coming within 5 feet of those dinos
Shit was hell on earth but goddamn the right build could destroy some of the missions, had a monk/warrior combo solo one of the endgame transition areas in nightfall, was pretty damn cool.
It had a neat class system, too. You picked a primary class and then at level a certain level you got to pick one of the other ones, but your secondary class didn't have full access to it's abilities.
It also had a really fantastic class/subclass system where you could combine skills from two different classes to make a build that synergized well and was only limited by your wilfullness to experiment.
The writing wasn't great but the setting was interesting.
There was a metric fuckton of content.
All three expansions were fantastic.
Oh, and most importantly, it's the only game I've known of before or since that used horizontal progression and used it well.
The max level is 20, it takes only few hours to reach if you start a non-vanilla character, and all progression is in the form of skill unlocks, special armor/weapon skins(as aside from enchants and stuff all weapons and armor at max level were equal), titles, cosmetics.
It was a really elegant system where you progress with more power, you progressed with more glory/stuff to show off. No content was ever trivialized or made irrelevant, and in fact they went back and made old content even more relevant with the addition of hard mode/vanquisher title.
What do you mean "thats it" its a fucking MMO where you actually had to play with people to get by instead of having them just running around in the backround while you tick a checklist of quests.
Having never played before the latest patch, i think it's okay
Well I never made it past the Prophecies starting zones so maybe I should push it a little more to see what the game offers.
this horizontal progression does sound interesting, maybe I really should give it some more time.
Every MMO is about groups, duh.
I don't think there's a single one where you can solo everything.
>Every MMO is about groups, duh.
I can and have played WoW from level 1 to 90 without being in a group. In Guild Wars you absoloutely need one. Shit, guild wars 2 allows you to go from 1 to 80 by yourself aswell. When you exit the starting zone on GW walk into an area and go through it without anyone in your party and see what happens.
You can use henchmen and heroes for that, though. There are areas where henchmen won't cut it, but heroes pretty much remove the necessity of other people in everything but elite missions.
Im almost under the opinion that you havent even played the fucking game now, go and try and clear the end game areas of GW by yourself(note that Im not talking about instances or raids thats a different subject entirely) In WoW you can clear the end game content by yourself, just not the raids and dungeons, but thats a given, because GW is like that too.
>When you move or control your character, only keyboard is used, but when you click on UIs, you can use mouse. We had a version of the game which you can move your character using mouse, but it was rather hard to play the game using mouse so we gave up on using mouse. Nothing happens even if you click on the ground.
Well, shit. I guess it really is keyboard only.
I don't see the problem with that.
Point-n-click sucks anyway in MMOs.
When I tried RO it felt weird as fuck.
Movement should be solid, with solid controls(buttons)
The real we we should worry about: can you walk and jump? Are there places you can only reach by jumping? Are there places to explore?
Put it this way,
>the journey from the start
With WoW its level 1,
In Guild wars it when you hit 20 and leave the tutorial
>to the end
Reaching max level in WoW
Completing the campaign in GW.
However the "end game content" such as raids and dungeons are in both games, of course you cant do either by yourself, but you can get to your apex without help in WoW, it isnt absolutely necessary to do these raids.
Play on in the game youll see what I mean.
the beginning of the "journey" in WoW doesn't start at level 1. i have a feeling you've never played WoW. nobody plays for the leveling experience, that's why they're offering paid boost to max level. the game doesn't start until you're max level.
But thats when the game starts. Unless you somehow magically zap to 90 the game starts and plays through from level 1 wither you like it or not,. Just because noone likes doing it doesnt mean its not integral to the gameplay.
>the beginning of the "journey" in WoW doesn't start at level 1
It sure as fuck doesnt start at 90, you have to progress through the game to get to that stage you idiot.
>the "end" game content is when the game "begins"
Well, I'm fucking TRYING to register a 7 day code a friend gave me for Wildstar but NCSoft's web engineers are so fucking pants-on-head retarded they won't let me log in (password works for GW and GW2 but not NCSoft account, which is the same account), and they won't send me a password reset email.
Neverwinter had the chance to be better than WoW. Combat was better, aesthetics were better, classes were better, and there are user-created dungeons.
But it just had to get ruined by p2w bullshit. Never trust a Chinese company.
You can skip the process(its a tutorial) AND its 30 minutes max to reach that level. GW "starts" after 30 minutes whereas in WoW it "starts" after days if not weeks of playing. Solid argument there m8.
Difference being the level cap in GW is the end of the tutorial, keep up with the fucking argument.
It's damn good, I haven't had this much fun in an MMO since UO.
Build what shit, exactly? The glider? More or less, yeah, but it ain't hard for the Gliders.
Oh shit, no. I don't actually have any screenshots of my house or farm. I should take some. But thats just a regular town used mostly for trade pack running, players gotta build their houses in designated zones (there's shit tons though)
The only thing I contributed to in that picture is one of the plants, lol.
Guild wars 2 was going well before Trehorn or whatever that flaccid fucks name was. You had a story about you just dealing with your every day shit until that flamboyant cunt comes to play. I wanted to follow more of the story about the Asura trying to win the "best mech" competition or the guy who was trying to get rid of the bandits in his sisters bar.
Playing Frontier with a group of buddies where we have no real idea what were doing except hunting monsters.
But not right this moment exactly, because it's maintenance day.
And I'm sitting here writhing because as soon as it's maintenance day the only thing I want to play is Frontier.
>still playing MMO's
Boy I can't wait to level up with single-player quests, finish dungeons, then finish raids, then have nothing to fucking do until the next expansion.
>b-but you can go to specifically identified pvp zones and move meters with our scripted rvr sieging! t-that's emergent gameplay, right?
I want to play this so badly. I been teased and teased about this game so many times but NOPE, not in America!. Loving DQ so much is suffering.
When the game came out I spent one week following a jap livestream to see how he/she progressed through it
The only cool thing about this game is the combat.
The sandbox shit got beat down with the general unpolish of the game. It all boiled down to doing thousands of instance runs for good drops. So that you can dye them, and parade them around town.
You could be a merchant of different types like making droids, houses, armor, and guns and sell them at your own house and things like that. Of course the actual SWG is dead and I'm pretty sure they took out those professions years before it went offline.
>still playing mmos
>still hyped for mmos
Are you guys masochist or something?
Like i give a fuck about you shitty sub human garbage
>waiting for korea garbage
Good luck with that Ys ripoff with 0.00000000001% speed
>liking mmo story
Jesus can this shit hole get any lower?
I don't even remember the Mabinogi storyline. Hell, I can't remember most of what the game was about, has it changed much over the past 6~8 years? (I don't remember how old it is.)
>not playing wow
Y'all niggas better step the fuck back
for the SWG Emulator you need original physical discs of SWG. I'm pretty sure any of different expacs will work - such as the Total Experience package.
then DL the Emu launcher and follow their directions here: swgemu.com
It was really pretty easy to install. But going at SWG alone is hard as fuck, the game is really outdated. Its a super rewarding experience if you can stay the course and make some friends.
WoW's nice and all but when you don't do much in it and make most of the money you spend monthly it just becomes a sinkhole for your wallet. Then again I don't really feel like anything is worth the effort anymore
My nigga, I was in Forsaken World beta.
It was something else, but so much the same. I fucking loved it.
Then so much shit happened, I don't even know anymore. I dropped it a month or two after launch when I got stuck at 37 on my dwarf marksman which was OP if I recall.
Can you tell me what happened?
I have Defiance from when it was buy to play and loved it, the dungeons are fun as fuck and varied, kept me interested.
Just wish I had a group to play with.
should we make a general?
Everything but MMOs really, I find them boring but its a case of "im bored, Ill jump on the game". At least for me. I imagine the people that play the likes of WoW feel somewhat obligated to play because theyre paying for it.
What happened when they switched to the GMI was that nobody knew how to use it. So what happened was someone would put a buy order for, let's say, a 300 CC chest for 300 credits. Someone goes to put their CC chest for sale, and accidentally sells it for 300 credits.
I remember when that shit was going crazy. Everyone was doing it, and I was like, fuck these people. Dupe items? Whatever. Scam people out of hundreds of millions of credits by accident, that was fucked up
>mfw this battle music plays
I'm currently playing UO free shards. I can never quite get into the game as much as I did back on the real shards in the 90s though. So I just play a lowly thief.
I get immense satisfaction from pissing people off. I stole all of this guy's mandrake root as he was PvPing and as you can see he's a little upset. I don't get enjoyment from the trolling/griefing aspect of it either, but rather the fact that I can actually do it. I can actually steal like a real thief would and the players care like a real person who had his belongings stolen would.
It's a bizarre feeling to get in an MMO. Especially after having played so many themepark MMOs where affecting other players in the world is basically impossible unless deemed acceptable by the game-mode like a battleground or something.
Currently FFXIV, might stop playing it once my free month burns out, it all depends how much fun I'm having.
I might go back to the Secret World, but trying to level a healer was probably one of the most boring and tedious experiences I've had trying to level in an MMO.
>Not matter how much points I put into healing stat with armor, can barely keep others and myself alive
>Have a bomb ass Assault Rifle for my level, doesn't do shit for damage and each fight takes way too goddamn long
Dat story though, dat Illuminati boss talking down to me, hot damn.
Man, I wish there was an isometric MMO to play. I've been playing Divinity and the whole time I've been wishing Garriott would've made his new Kickstarter project look like this instead of that Unity engine horse shit.
The release date has not been announced yet. However the first CBT is supposed to start in summer of 2014.
Agreed the game is free aim anyway so a mouse would just get in the way with a the isometric top down style anyway.
I don't know if RO had walking, but a lot of games tend to miss these basic features while calling themselves mmoRPGs.
So I'm really hoping run/walk will be "toggleable", and also hope jumping will be usable in dodging.
I'm waiting on Black Desert Online, and have no current MMO. I've been getting the craving for an MMO but am not sure which to play. I have the Secret World and GW2, so I guess I'll go back to one of those if I don't see something/get suggested something, soon.
