    GW2 is still doing well isn't it?

    MMO's often run their cycle and close. What we're seeing is a change to free to play is all?
  • Deleted user 2 January 2013 23:30:43
    Yeah but Free To Play is utter shite.

    Bitty content that some people have while others don't because group A paid and group B didn't.

    That's not free to play , that's free to try. If you actually want to play the fucking game you still have to pay.

    Fuck this shit. Either you have a sub and full content or no sub and still full content or I'm not touching your game.

    The market isn't in decline, people still want mmo's, they just get bored very easily.

    They've had their day in so much as studios can't afford the start up costs nor want the financial risks for a fickle audience.

    It's kinda sad to a degree...

    I don't know about TSW, but Guild Wars 2 has a decent model. The crap on the in-game store amounts to vanity items and junk you wouldn't miss.

    Am glad i only paid eight quid for this. Played 4 hrs yesterday, and it felt clunky and pretty ham-fisted. I think MMOs just aren't for me.

    ...and people say it doesn't bring anything new to the genre. Daft huh?

    Yeah, the closest thing it reminds me of, if anyone ever played it, is In Memoriam (in that regard, not anything else)

    Heh. Same server, different faction (I'm Templar). Still, 3 character slots so will have to roll an alt on the others at some point.

    Out of interest mate, what build are you going with at the moment? I've gone for Pistols and Blood Magic. Gives me a good balance between DPS and healing, with a nice range of DOTs, buffs and debuffs.

    I'm actually really surprised by how well judged the mix-and-match skill system is, it seems no matter what you go for your two skills play off each other in some way.

    Heh, the mayan thing was a complete pain in the arse, zombies spawning in thin air, even in safe areas. Urgh.

    The free 1200 ponts i got for completing 30 quests was very quickly spent on a douple AP point booster which was very nice indeed. And even though we didn't complete it, I got some very nice pistols from the Polaris dungeon.

    I dont mind the investigation missions so much, though some of the clues are on the wrong side of obtuse. More annoying are the bloody stealth missions, which are just awful.

    Loving it so far, its been years since I've played an mmo that has grabbed me like this.

    Am I right in remembering that one of the biggest complaints about the game at launch was a lack of content?

    Utter nonsense. I've playes over 60 hours already and have only just started the second zone...

    To add to that previous question, is this going cheap anywhere?

    It was going cheap on Steam over Christmas. Failing that:

    Amazon: 22.99

    Play.com: 22.99

    Shopto direct download: 24.85

    @darkmorgado i dont remember any of those accusations, more that the gun combat didn't feel great and movement felt a little clunky. and also that the skills and stats were a little unclear and unfocused

    Anyone playing on Daemon server btw? Could do with joining a Cabal...

    @shamblemonkee

    The article yesterday (I think) on the front page contained a couple of comments from people complaining about lack of content. I might well be wrong, but right now I don't have the inclination to trawl through a load of archived reviews on metacritic to check :)

    heh, well if you're enjoying it what's it matter - thats the main thing right?

    i've actually stopped reading around on games so much because i found they were detracting from my enjoyment sometimes.

    Do the XP-boosts only work during the period you're a subscriber?

    /first MMO

    Bueller?

    Erm, you will ALWAYS be a subscriber. "Normal Subscriber" is the name given to someone who doesn't pay a monthly fee. Then you have "Master" and "Grand Master" subs.
