WoW or AoC - Page 5

Here's to hoping Darkfall delivers what is promised and that the bioware MMO is like Pre-CU SWG.
QFE! This is a defining moment for bio-ware, pre-cu SWG was so great, it needed more content and some balancing but skill based system was the best and all player economy ftw! Loot was just for house decorations.

I played WoW for 35 levels and found it really hard to try to push for those last 5 levels.. hence why I quit. I was probably doing something wrong, I just found it boring, that and most of the quests were "Go here, kill x amount of y creature and return for your measly reward!"

Obviously, there are quite a few of these quests in AoC but they add extra things in like collecting a certain item or I don't know, but something more interesting.

The combat system is great IMO, really spices it up rather than just clicking on an enemy then clicking on your skills. Instead you get to decide which way to hit, and for your damage-increasing skills you have to actually input a combo to finish them, so = more skill.

Also, fatalities. Have you seen some of those? Fantastically gory One of my personal favourites is one swing to dismember one arm, another swing dismembers the other arm and the final swing is a nice decapitation

Anyway, IMO AoC is more interesting than WoW and once they add more quests for 40-80 level and more dungeons and group instances etc, will be a much better game than WoW.

IMO
yea the combat system is cool. and i really do like it. but once again AOC is nothing but potential the combat system alone is not enough to keep me. it plays horrible. once in a while i get good FPS then back down to 17 FPS regardless of settings or resolution. i wont lie if the game ran well. i would be playing it. but the bottom line is it doesn't and just like LOTRO did, it never will.

remember Vangaurd, then LOTRO, now AOC. honestly looks like it's getting better, but still, these mmo makers need to sacrafice a little of their ambitions and get the gamers needs in priority. smooth gaming = fun. choppy slide show =frustration. IMO

if i wanted a slide show i throw on my itunes and look at my own pics..lol
happy gaming

i just tried WoW for the first time, other then a few days of a trial over a year ago. I must say I can't see what the big deal is. I'll probally cancel before the free month is up. It might be more fun if I could get in a group but I've had multiple people whisper me and say that since the expansions it is pretty much expected that you solo to level 60 other than a few instances here and there. i am not going to play that trash. Why would I play an MMO to solo for 60 levels? And I am not going to join a guild just to attemot to find a group...i am not playing the "Hey, want to join a guild?" game. I will find my own giuld by the people I meet, but if I can't really meet any people beside the trade chat the guild isn't going to happen(and why do they use the trade chat? Shouldn't that be for "trading"? What is wrong with general?).

WoW is basically a dead game. If it is this hard for new players to start it won't be very populated for much longer.

On the other hand I refuse to play AoC because of the nudity...not that I have any problems with nudity, but there will be idiots that play the game for only the nudity and that is a player base I don't want to deal with.

I was thinking of trying that Warhammer online when it comes out...but even that is sounding more and more blah every day.

People who have raided wow have one of two opinions: it's either boring because they've seen all they want to see, or it's the defining substance of an MMORPG and nothing will ever convince them otherwise. To say that AoC "barely" sold 1 million copies in it's first week is hilarious. Those numbers are insane. How many years did it take wow to get to 10 million subscribers? Basically, WoW is what it is, AoC is what it could be. You have to be the judge on both accounts.

WoW does not start at 60, Outlands has the same types of quests as in Azeroth. I think the best part of WoW is the 30-49 range. Classes start getting more unique, and instances get more complicated. And Azeroth isn't that empty, maybe on low population servers, but then again of course they are going to be empty.

WoW is not going to die any time soon...at all. I'm not a WoW fanboi in the least, but it has a strangle hold on people and over 10 million subscriptions (though a lot are probably gold farming accounts). You complain of WoW being a solo game? At least in WoW you can find groups when the necessity arises. In AoC I've spent hours just trying to find a group for a simple dungeon run. AoC is the most solo oriented MMO I have ever seen. Combine the fact that generally you get more xp just soloing everything with the fact that the grouping system is ATROCIOUS and you have one giant SOLO-MMORPG.

ouch...you know, I think that is the only thing I haven't heard much on for AoC is the group system. All I hear is how revolutionary the combat system is and how wonderful the graphics are. I am definately not going to play it now...I was sort of on the fence with the nudity issue, but now I know for sure. I've done some searching and it is not hard to find people who agree with you.
