I've been watching my dad play Rift a couple times now and after seeing the graphics I would feel nauseous if I ever had to play WoW again. Though it has lots of similarities, I thought it looked like a nice breath of fresh air. Even if the story doesn't really have much potential to grow.
After playing WoW on and off since release I honestly don't know how people(or I guess vets) can still play that game! While the game is trying to evolve, not all, but a lot of the community has devolved into shit. I try to keep my distance from the Wow forums because whenever I see someone call another player a "baddie" it makes me want to bust their teeth out with a pipe.
WoW forums =/= WoW.
WoW forums have a very loud fraction of the actual player-base. I always hated the forums, and never really even read them. Even if I played the game for well over 3 years.
Ha, don't touch the official forums. We all know that, it's bad for one's mental health. Truth be told, the golded rule is "anything outside the guild is crap, stay away". Pugs are crap, random PvP groups are crap, the chat in any public channel is crap. Maybe that's why I look forward to GW2, be able to do more alone and not depend for anything on others.
I just grabbed it off Amazon as it is on sale for $35 I expect it'll be not too dissimilar to the standard MMO feel but given its reported polish at launch and heft class selection and customization I figure it will be a great little fantasy title to hold me over and maybe play with some fellow DiabloFans.
Once I have my real..er shard picked out next week and stuff maybe those whoa re playing can shoot me a pm and we can kill monsters
Just remember you can only play with people on your own shard =P I don't know what shard contains most diablofans.
/shrug Yeah After playing WoW for 5 years it'll be fun to play something with a lot more character customization. I am also becoming increasingly interested in TERA online. Their use of the Unreal Engine 3 is awesome.
I'll probably pick a PvE shard as I was on a PvP realm in WoW and it'll be nice not to deal with ganking.
I kinda miss my Tryael pet though. He and I would dance in Iron Forge
