    WTF is going on with the MMO industry these days

    I figured last night that with all the changes finally going through on the test server, I might as well load over and check it out.

    And, man was I disappointed.

    :Shader 3.0:

    Shader 3.0 didn't really make the game look that much better, and it dropped my frames per second significantly. I went from around 40 to 60 frames per second down to around 9 to 12 frames per second in some areas. The only place I noticed decent frame rates was in dungeons.

    Honestly though, I didn't think the game looked that much better with shader 3.0 enabled. If anything, I thought my character's hair looked more like clay with shader 3.0 turned on.

    I see no benefit or reason that I will use shader 3.0 when it is moved to live if it stays in the state it is in now.


    :Halas:

    I can't stress enough how Halas looked like a small version of Everfrost with some huts aranged in a big circle. That was about it. All this time, and that's what they came up with.

    To me it absolutely did not resemble old Halas in any form other then being snow covered and having an unmanned raft that magically floats back and forth.

    Oh and it was ultra bright white. It was like near white out conditions which made it that much more none enjoyable to visit. I will definitely not be moving any of my characters to Halas when it comes out.


    :Hide Mount:

    Like it. It was the only good thing I saw on test.

    So... yeah. That brings me to the conclusion that we are fucked. They spent all this time on Halas and Shader 3.0, and pretty much it's pathetic. If this is the team that is making the next expansion, I am starting to think that it really is time to sign off for the last time.

    The last two expansions have been pure ass shit, and the stuff they have been working on lately looks to be no better if not even worse. If this is any indication of what we have to look forward to in the next expansion.... fuck. Is there any MMORPG out there right now worth being excited about, or is it time to take up a new hobby?

    Just plain sick of the shit.

    SoE is not trying anymore. Blizzard is putting out shit that is so easy mode a 9 year old can be uber in it. And, all the other MMO publishers out there are creating MMORPGs that have a 1 year life expectancy. The industry has literally gone to fuck hell in a hand basket, and there is no hope in sight.

    Armory link? Or are you just using company lines.

    LOL, sounds like me back when I didn't want to give WoW the time of day. Amazing how that perspective can change when you actually play the game for a while and do endgame content.

    Yup. WoW is a decent game. And all the people that say it is super easy tend to not do the hardmodes (or hell not even play at all but go by rumours) From the sound of things, EQ2 sounds like SF is an easier expac than WoW has been. Dunno personally since I quit before SF launched though.

    I like how the OP says WoW is easymode and then goes on about starting zones like they fucking matter.

    verdict:

    OP should stick to playing dress-up with his boyfriend

    This character profile could not be displayed, possibly for one of the following reasons:
    •The character has been inactive for an extended period of time.
    •The character name was spelled incorrectly.
    •The profile is temporarily unavailable while the character is in the midst of a process such as a realm transfer or faction change.
    •Characters that have been deleted are no longer available on the Armory.

    You people sure seem to be quick to defend WoW. Interesting.

    Here's the last experience I had with WoW... you tell me what was so innovative and exciting about this scenario:
    1. Log in and get in the cross-server dungeon finder LFG system
    2. Automatically teleport to the dungeon when group fills
    3. Race through the linear-designed (one way through because hey buildings in WoW have one path.. no rooms... no options.. just one path. Isn't that how all structures are built in the world... oh that's right) instance in about 10 minutes
    4. Group breaks after last boss dies
    5. Teleport back to Dalaran
    6. Get back in to the cross-server dungeon finder LFG system
    7. Go to step 2.

    Yeah. That's a MMORPG worth defending. Hell yeah.

    And, seriously. What the fuck is up with all dungeons these days being a designed with a linear path in mind? You can drive a race car through these dungeons because they start at one spot and go to the end with no choices to be made. Just zippppppppppppp *END*. Get up. Walk around your house, and tell me how linear your is your house? How about your employer's office? The mall? Any random structure in existence?

    How many of them have a single entry, single path to move down, no seperate rooms off the given path, and a single exit? About 1% of them?

    Lazy dungeon design. Very lazy dungeon design.

    It all started with the Lost Dungeons of Norrath expansion. Designers got lazy.

    Account isn't even a half year old since subscription was stopped, so not sure what the fuck is up there.
