Re: [Cataclysm] SWTOR beta

said by Arsinic:

OMG I still play Tribes tooo.. holy shit

Man I used to be a beast on TWL running flags back in the day..

I also was pretty notorious for my MA abilities.. oh how more games need a disc launcher like Tribes..

Hah, I knew I liked you. You play a rogue and know your #$& too.

I've been following a supposed F2P new release of Tribes. I really hope they grasped the skiing/MA and MD's! (Mine discs).

I guess this is why your called Snuffbox? Is that what you really think? I'm sure SWTOR will pull some WoW people but hardly that. We do love the jokes of anonymous online forums for non-stop entertainment though. No place else on Earth for free is as good.

Mike left this up in the WoW forums for a reason and it has nothing to do with SWTOR directly. I'm enjoying his lead.

Why does one have to be better than the other? I see positives and negatives from both currently. Remember SwTOR is in Beta so you can't really compare them head to head yet. WoW is an awesome game and has served its purpose in gaming history. Like it or not but it's been a game changer. SWTOR may or may not have the same effect, most likely not because it's not bringing anything game changing to the table.

I do think it will succeed after playing the beta simply because it seems like they embraced what wow has done and expounded on it. Games like RIFT or AION seemed to me like they were trying to replace wow. My initial thoughts are SWTOR seems to have taken everything that wow did right and fix alot of what they did wrong and run with it. I dont know why but It's nice to not be shooting bow and arrows or worrying about mana. Maybe the whole Midevil idea is a little beat up now days.

Is SWTOR a Wow Killer? Absolutely not. But on the other Hand Wow is not an SWTOR killer. I think SWTOR will have it's own following just like wow does and they will co-exist and be succussful at the same time. What's wrong with playing them both? When blizzard decides to make Starcraft into an MMO then we have something to argue about.

The reason RIFT and all the others that were supposed to be Wow killers failed is because they did not have the community that wow has. RIFT was better than wow in just about every single way, Except one! It lacked the Massive multiplayer part. It was kind of boring playing an MMO alone or with a small community IMO. I think SWTOR just from movies alone will have enough of a community to keep it going and successfull. Hell I know people that still play battlefront from the original xbox online.

Moos,

You should post more often.

Also, I finally figured out where you were double dipping in your resillience model.

More developed UI allowing for better (IMO) interface options that WoW has yet to do.

Uh, what? In WoW you can make your own UI. In SWTOR you're stuck with the generic vanilla-wow style UI.

You mean the UI you can make that pops up errors and/or breaks after every patch? The same mods that slow down your PC and make the game run like crap some times? I can live without them. We did in EQ, FFXI, and every other game before WoW. As long as everyone is on the same level you don't need them.

You failed to address the point where the OP stated that SWTOR had a more developed UI and more options than WoW. I played the beta, I liked the beta, but the UI is the same UI that WoW gave us in vanilla. There's nothing wrong with this, but it is NOT MORE DEVELOPED.

My apologies. I guess he excepted victory. I was just trying to point out that neither is really better than the other in terms of stock UI. I used the stock UI as the basis of my gameplay the entire time I played it, only using addons for extra information.

In the end one of the best choices the WoW devs made was to allow users to create their own add-ons. The game has developed along it's path with a lot of worthy additions coming from the devs taking the most used add-ons and building them into the game.

Heh I put 6yrs into EQ 2000-2006 and even I will state that having UI mods is a great thing. even if you only use the mods that change the "Look and Feel" which any EQ player will know that EQ also had minor UI mods too by the end you could skin the interface(aka Look and Feel).

xperl is superior to default, as is bartender. neither mod holds your hand but they both present the information in a better fashion. Post Luclin in EQ you could also make such UI changes.

No worries, he has apparently taken a "If you can't beat them, join them" mentality.

I'd except his superiority, accept he has no game knowledge... (lol's I know I know, it's old now)
