I want to like this game but I cant get past feeling like my UI is cluttered and clunky.
-My first 10 lvls have been very jarring, I briefly tried to pay attention to the quest windows that pop up but ultimately gave up and simply relied on navigating w/ the maps and looking out for the yellow [!] over the mobs. W/O any context from the quest and simply progressing thru by following this method I felt like I was being shepherded throughout my experience, which culled my sense of exploration.
-The game is too easy, at lvl 10 I'm pulling the entire room and AoEing them down. There is no fear of failure and no desire to theory craft a build that will allow me to challenge and explore Nexus.This in turn makes acquiring new gear meaningless, other than fashion. I don't know if that changes later in the game/end game, but I feel like this should be true for the entire experience of this game beginning to end. Its a hostile new planet after all. By making it brain dead easy there is no desire to seek out other players or simply think up a strong rotation and strategize your mob pulls. Also the UI is clunky, I'm just a simple gamer so I have no suggestion on how to improve it, but I've played enough games to know that this is the weakest feature of this game.
-Hate the telegraph system... honestly you've taken a side feature that most games implement into their content and made it a core mechanic to your game, Why. On top of things being already too easy, now I get a lovely red telegraph telling me exactly where my mob is going to strike w/ a million year warning(j/k) before it does strike.
-The game environment is beautiful.
-Love the character animations.
-Love the way each map(so far) is designed, I especially like that it doesn't seem(so far) littered w/ meaningless mobs and npc just to fluff up the game.
-Each mob seems to fit into the environment (except for towns they feel cluttered, maybe its the icons everywhere).
Anyway I'll keep trying, but I thought I'd leave some new player feedback before I progress any further. Like I said, I want to like this game.
