In Topic: So if you don't have the map all discovered you're screwed for events?

25 August 2013 - 09:42 PM

yes it is possible.

It's not like it's hard to get into the action if you truly wanted to. The events last 45 minutes. I"m sure you can stomach spending 5 or 10 of them getting where you need to go. Just take your city's portal to LA and then take one of the other portals to the city nearest where the action is taking place. After that you just have to potentially pass through a zone or two which really doesn't take long. Especially with speed buffs. Given how long this world event in general is going to last as well as how long the individual zone events last, there's really no excuse not to have at least one waypoint in every zone.

In Topic: What do GW1 players think of GW2?

25 August 2013 - 03:46 PM

I like GW1 better because if you saw someone with a title or an armor piece or special weapon, you know that player EARNED IT not bought it.

I feel very shallow walking around GW2 as there's a good 50% chance half the crap people are wearing was simply bought.

Where's the sense of accomplishment? Why even play?

I can't believe I was actually looking forward to this game,

In one of the interview a dev said that they are okay with subs and cash shop because they know their IP will attract players regardless. What an arrogant presumtion.

The fact they even have a cash shop in game is a clear sign they plan to milk gamers off their money as much as possible, before switching to F2P after they start losing subs. WoW having cash shop is no argument- they introduced cash shop at golden age of the mmo, with many players playing the game for years already. It's completely different circumstance.

In no way I am going to support such blatant money-grab attempt. Such arrogance thinking they will get away with this. Well, they won't have my money.

That's all I have to say.

Thats erm.....not what they said at all.

I can only assume assume youre talking about Matt Firor's interview with Gamestar at the beginning of which this was said:

GameStar: A few days ago we had a poll on our website, asking our readers what upcoming MMO they crave the most. The vast majority (over 54 percent) voted for The Elder Scrolls Online. We bet that people are also eager to learn what payment model they can expect. Now would be a perfect time to disclose the details.

Matt Firor: We're thrilled that gamers are looking forward to diving into The Elder Scrolls Online and we've been working hard to deliver the game that fans want - one that's worthy of the Elder Scrolls name. Choosing the right business model is part of that. We are going with the subscription model for ESO.

Nothing arrogant or presumptuous there.

Is there another interview out there?

And how does timing make a difference if WoW introduces a cash shop with its p2p design? Why is that ok?

Keep in mind that i support the sub model with a fluff store on the side. I know what my money buys me instead of letting RNG in a B2p or f2p game dictate what it buys me.

Im just curious why the passage of time makes it ok for WoW to adopt a store since you clearly have qualms about eso's store.

Which is funny, cause 20g will be a joke compared to the 10-20 € a name change might cost in TESO (if one takes WoW as an example, which is the only MMORPG I can think of, from the top of my head, to have a subscription + these services) and you won't pay another 12 € each month....

Who pays for a name change once a month?

And 20g aint no joke. Thats hours of farming or playing.

Id rather spend the ten, forget about it and then go out and mow somebody's lawn or something and make it all back plus tip. Then go to work and make even more. And like i said, a service like a name change or race change is really only something people do (or should do) once in a blue moon. The cost is negligable.

Were speaking in a sense that one is already comfortable with the sub fee btw.

My my look at all these people that have played the full game and have even taken part in adventure zones! Such a shame the game turned out to be a dud.

Oh wait.......

The micro-transactions are simply a ridiculous concept for a P2P game. I'm paying $15 a month already and you want me to pay more if I want to get this skin or get another character slot or w/e they're gonna be offering? If they WANT to have such store in game, they should at the very least have a currency exchange system GW2-style.

I dont really know many people willing to pay over 20g for the 800 gems needed for a name change.
But thats just my experience.
