You can still **** in any direction in game and hit 4 people no matter where you are. I think that speaks for itself as far as people not as disgusted as some people here would make out everyone is. Problems? Yes. Sky falling? Drama queen on.
My perceptions of some of the bigger problems having an not-godly computer to base it off of:
Combat lag: This doesn't exist. For real.
UI delays: tolerable needs some work still waaay faster than beta. Maybe too many windows. I'm used to it like I got with FFXI now so it is fast. Progress is progress
Patcher: Working well tho clearly has some technical pitfalls even to those who sit there at a computer and play games all day.
AH: It needs one. They have slated a fix for this(in a way I guess) for 1-2 weeks... We'll see what happens there.
Playability: Very good actually. Once you understand the game mechanics and aren't running around broke etc playing is working well. Mob spreads are a bit lacking for trying to level at certain ranges but overall so far up to 20ish it's pretty good. NPC repair is bad.. not the cost... the repair. I'm feeling like this works like the gas gauge on a car that first quarter takes a long time to go down past that it tanks. Since npc repair only goes to 3/4 tank guess what?
PT exp bug: I'm convinced this is a myth. I know what you are seeing(or not seeing as it were) but it is giving you exp I'm betting and you didn't notice then had seen the myth and took it at face value. I've tried to recreate this and have been unsuccessful I have gotten a display bug just like in beta... still got all the exp too tho. I'm fully ready to be wrong on this just my observation.
The playerbase: I haven't seen enough people talking to actually even guess what anyone in game is thinking which leads me to...
Chat length: Needs help bad. Usable. Sorta works well for it's function once you get used to it being backwards from XI with the reply.
Story: So far I'm into it. I really wanna see where all these little things end up going.
Crafting: Despite having a lot of windows this is actually pretty organized and in depth. I'm sure it is annoying to the non crafter
I'm a non crafter. I generally hate it in other games. This is actually pretty nice tho. Skill based crafting.... I could get used to this vs. just about every other games faceroll grind crafting.
Content: It probably has a ton of centent we haven't got the chance to know is in game yet but it needs more. This can be said in any mmo at release. I want to see where this goes. So far I haven't seen enough to make a judgment.
Overall: People may whine(a lot) but this game is actually pretty good. It had a short dev time as far as mmos go and I'm sure the CEO shoved it out the door before the optimal time like usually happens to games. All in all tho, it is shaping up to be a very nice
and sort of different game. You beta warhammer? Now that was a tragedy. This is a molehill. They're clearly listening and taking action. Time will tell how quickly and effectively things are handled.
Have fun rating me down. ^^
