Yeah sure. Raiding for 4-5 hours a day 6 days a week isn't hardcore at all. Either is raiding 18-20 hours a day for 4 days just to get a world first. I guess guilds like www.sk-gaming.com are just wasting their time.

I bought this game on launch day and played it for a couple and then proceeded to cancel my subscription. For on thing it doesn't even seem like an MMO because of all the instancing, and no quests required me to go out and find a friend. It always seems like there is no one around. Playing through the newbie zone I was thinking to myself "Oh well, maybe once I get off this damn island things will change." I finally get off the freaking island, and guess where I end up? Another ****ing island (Khemi for those who are wondering, I played a Stygian - Herald of Xotli). Everything is instanced and you hardly ever see any other players, let alone interact with them. I guess this game would be nice if you like single player games where you grind up levels.

Onto the combat... which is oh-so-revolutionary. Yes you start off with 3 directions you can attack from but you just end up mashing on the same direction, whichever has the least shielding, over and over again. And if you don't pay attention for a second and stop mashing that key your dumbassed character just stands there taking a beating. You get combos which you trigger and then must press the corresponding attack direction(s) to pull off, but they are all pretty boring. The combat in this game fails to live up to even WoW standards because it doesn't have the movement in combat which makes WoWs combat better than other MMOs.

On top of all of this it is hard enough to get a PC that can run the damn game, this game loves to stutter and it seems to do so regardless of graphics settings or resolution. That's just what I think of the game so far. I have yet to hear from anyone who is thoroughly impressed with, loves the game, and could see themselves playing it for any extended period of time.

Looks like he signed up just to bash the game.

I wouldn't consider that hardcore...I'd consider it unhealthy and rather sad. There's a world outside of WoW.

Never said the comparison was overly logical, he asked me what I considered hardcore. In terms of video games, I consider nothing hardcore. You are sitting behind a computer using a mouse and keyboard (sometimes a controller) and moving around in a pixelized world. Where does the hardcore come in? Maybe a 'hardcore' case of addiction if you're raiding for 18-20 hours straight 4 damn times a week...but that's about all the hardcore I see.

We are speaking of hardcore in terms of video games so you obviously cannot come up with a logical definition for the term in question. If so, why are you posting about a game being hardcore or not?

Go away.
