How do people still play LOL, let alone watch it? Dota is superior in most area's, and doesn't have graphics from the atari st era.

As saturated as the MOBA market it is, we still see way more crappy, run of the mill FPS games.

But man, that looks terrible. Clunky, mmo like combat in a moba. Yay!

Y no decent RTS games?

Nice! I really enjoyed the first two, though i wish they'd just focus on doing Dying Light properly before doing this?

Oh well, more campaign co-op goodness! Unlike copouts like Farcry.

"Unity won’t have full campaign co-op, rather story-based co-op missions which are set alongside the single-player campaign."

Meh...better than nothing though i guess.

Will the era of crappy WOW clones ever end? Will we ever see the return of decent RTS games - or are they too difficult for console players?

/sigh

I still consider DAoC one of the all time great MMORPGs.

It's one of the all time greats even if you didn't play it. It is the game that broke Everquest's dominance in MMOs. It was the MMO that started addressing the unnecessary tedious elements found in EQ that people hated. That in turn started the trend of all MMOs after it to continue removing "tedious" elements from gameplay for better or worse. <cough WoW> It changed the MMO landscape dramatically. That's on top of having arguably the best PvP of any 3D MMO. UO is still legendary being the first graphic PvP MMO.

RIP DAOC. For me AC1 Darktide and UO were by far the best, but DAOC was definitely up there as well.

Such a shame that MMO's followed the EQ/WOW formula, as we may actually still have decent games in that genre today.

RIP mythic.

If we can't beat them in sales or marketing or technological innovation we'll try (and fail) to beat them in the courts.

Exactly.

Apple don't innovate these days, they just sue, market, then sue some more.

Oh, but wait, the new iphone comes with a larger screen. I wonder if android copyrighted larger screens - like apple did with their rectangle with rounded edges?

I mostly don't understand what makes MOBAs so popular. And now all of these clones too, imagine if every doom clone just had a few maps, but they were all essentially just 3 parallel hallways...

Imagine if MOBA's only had 1 class, and the only skill you need to be good at them was fast reflexes

I always played MMO's for PVP, but then they turned them into crappy little instanced arena matches, complete with chunky combat and unbalanced classes.

So instead of taking advantage of the main thing MMO's have going for them (the dynamic, open world) we are stuck with mindless PVE grinds, as well as mindless PVP grinds... to get better gear, so you can have an advantage over everyone else. Yay!

That's what turned me onto MOBA's and i've got to say, they are way more fun than the MMO trash we are stuck with these days. It's no wonder why MOBA's are dwarfing MMO's these days.

With that said i really don't know if i need another MOBA, especially the dumbed down crap Blizzard is working on (though i wonder if they can ruin another genre?).

I'd still prefer RTS's, but it seems that genre is dead and buried (thanks EA, thanks consoles)... and modern FPS's are well, yeah.

Amazing game, just wish they'd fix all the re-rolls / smurf accounts. Hard to get my friends interested when they keep getting partied against players with thousands of hours who they stand absolutely no chance against.

As a old school MMO PVP'er ive given up on moderns MMO's in favor of MOBA's, the PVP is far superior and you don't have to put up with the mind numbing PVE crap to get there.

Just wish they'd bring back open world PVP in MMO's with meaning/risk/consequences.

/end rant.

You know, I used to love MMOs.. Ultima Online/Everquest/Asheron's Call/Etc.

Now they're all crappy clones of each other with purposely built time sink grinds that just seem so bad. I used to look forward to MMO's and now I see shit like this and so glad I don't play any of them anymore.

This will be another one that shuts down after the hype phase.

10000000% this. UO and AC1 Darktide were amazing...

The along came WOW and the whole genre went to sheet.

Plus there's this for the technical folks out there.

I'm glad I didn't pre-order this game. Now I know not to play it. I'll wait for Wildstar.

I didn't pre-order anyway. Ended up liking it so much I went out of my way to find a CE.

Tried Wildstar this weekend with a key from Alienware. I can't believe people are so excited for this game. It's the same graphics as 10 year old World of Warcraft with the same combat. The introductory quests seem completely unfinished (where do I go next?) and BORING. I only played for a couple of hours, and I felt like I'd played this game before.

Minus the graphics part (they are little better than WOW, but still pretty average), you could just as easily be talking about ESO.

But yeah, wildstar is terrible.

Except combat in ESO is nothing like combat in WoW. And ESO lacks the annoying "kill 10 monster" quests.

Yes it is, especially if you play a ranger. The combat is the worst part of the game IMO.

And instead of kill 10 monster quests, they have talk to 10 people or... put out 10 fires, or the riveting fetch quests.

Revolutionary stuff!!!

And now we know you've never played it.

And now we know you're a delusion fanboy.

J/k, that was already clear when you implied the game wasn't just another cookie cutter MMO that brings absolutely nothing new to the genre... oh wait, but it doesn't have kill quests!

lmao

Because it was developed in Korea, for the Eastern market. It was released in Korea last year and has been in closed beta form in China for a while.

They've already been screwing around with the open world PVP, because the "instanced PVP aka stand in circles crew" couldn't handle PVP that was dynamic and not a pointless grind.

I used to have high hopes for this game but it seems they lost their way somewhere, as seen by the staggered released and never ending delays.

Do movie theaters let you watch movies for free?
Do restaurants let you eat for free?

Welcome To The Real World.

You mean the real world where there are better MMO's than ESO and which don't have a monthly fee attached?

This ESO MMO is as generic as they come - there is simply no justification for the monthly fee in THIS CASE considering their competition.

Give it time, i'm sure they too will realise this.

Glad you are enjoying it though! Half a dozen beta's were more than enough for me.


Yea, says you. Ill take a monthly sub any day of a free to play model. the F2P model nickel and dimes you to death for almost anything you need or what to do In the game.

And since when has a monthly sub now become bad?

As for this being as generic as they come, I take it you haven't gone past level 15? Because the game really starts to open up after you get on the main land and questing. I have seen MMO's that are way worst then this game. This game at least has quality voice overs acting and voice overs for nearly every NPC that you talk to through your the world that is of relevance. Where is that being done in any other MMO? Certainly not in Wildstar.

Monthly sub became bad when MMO's became nothing but generic themepark clones which everyone has already played dozens of times already.

The game opening up after level 10 helps, but it's still same old same old... and does nothing to help the cumbersome combat and tired old formula.

As for voice overs - SWTOR? And it's free!

You sir are delusional, SWTOR is far from free. That game is the epitome of Nickel and Dime you to death.

I played SWTOR a couple of months back, got to level ~20 and never had to pay for one thing. Though maybe i did it wrong, or was blinded by all the amazing voice acting that i was unable to see how terrible the GAME actually was...

Hey, wait a sec, maybe you are onto something!
