  1. For the better part of a year, I've been trying to drop my traditional action/shooter game craze, grow some patience and play something truly unique and worth dedicated my time into (I'm generally a solo player). I decided to start a clinical OCD-fueled search of sorts, downloading and playing tons of free MMO's to find the one for me. It's been an entire year flipping between games and I am still looking. So far, the one I've stuck with the most is LOTRO because I grew up obsessed with the lore. I only put about 40 hours in until the pattern of doing mindless fetch quests and the dated mechanics became very repetitive..I don't feel like I'm really enjoying the game, more like I'm doing chores. The world is very rich and all but I feel like I'm missing out on much better, more modern MMO games when I'm playing it. My brother bought a Guild Wars 2 the day it was released, so I tried using his account to play that without the f2p stuff. It was a fine game, I played on his account for around 30 hours or so.. but I began to notice it seemed to fully enjoy what the game had to offer you NEEDED friends with you. I know the game shares bonuses or whatever but that's not quite what I mean. I still want a game also specifically tailored to be enjoyable in solo play rather than feeling like you're playing to become the best on your own accord, I just want to have consistent fun. That's when I did some googling, and I'm not sure how related it is to GW2, but I found the term "theme-park MMO"..I saw it getting alot of flack from players on forums, but it seemed to cater to my play style. I'm not big into sandbox gameplay, I get bored super quick. Looking more into that led to me being reminded of a game I heard of years ago, The Secret World. I remember hearing about it during its original release and I had no idea it went F2P, so I uninstalled GW2 and installed Secret World Legends in its place. This was just a week ago. When I began I was enthusiastic, it seemed as if it were made for me...story driven, amazing premise, good weapons & upgrades system..it didn't take more than 4 hours into the game to realize the only thing unique feeling about this game to me was the "secrets" "legends" "mystery" gimmick- which, mind you is a cool and unique idea...but the aesthetics of the game its presentation gave me an experience of something I've played a billion times. It quickly grew to feel like just a late 2000's style console single player campaign. Huge turnoff for me. I'm aware there are more MMO's to try. There is WOW Tera RIFT ESO and many more (I sadly can't run BDO) but something about most of those in my eyes get saturated into the long list of Wow-cloning MMORPGs. I see them everywhere and it's always been kind of a turnoff. So, here I am. In a final act of desperation, I went to Steam and searched through the more lesser played lists of games. That's where I finally discovered this beautiful looking, unique game Wildstar. It was quite far down the list, I don't think I would have found it if I weren't looking hard enough. Just from viewing the info on the Steam page alone I knew I had struck gold! It hits a niche kind of unique and simplicity I've always wanted in a game like this! Looking up gameplay and hearing more and more about the game got me super excited for it, I loved everything I was hearing. I'm may be just a little over 2 hours into gameplay but I'm already in love. For the first time in an RPG, I want there to be enough content to sustain me for a long time and not just experience as if it were a tour or a chore, or playing to see what the hype is about. It's really one of the funnest looking games I've ever played, and every minute I am finding something else I love...and I'm just getting started. It feels to good to be true, and the lack of players to me is baffling! The community being small and dedicated if anything is motivating me to spread the word. I've never even signed up for a game forum besides when I moderated a server once. I notice the player count has gone up significantly in the past two weeks on the Steam Charts, perhaps due to the new year or random fluctuation who knows- but I feel like a game like this can rise from the rubble with the right circumstances. If more people knew this game existed, more people would play it I'm SURE. Excuse my naive MMO lingo, guys- what I want from a game is very strange and usually off-kilter to how it's normally played, so I apologize if it seems I think I know more than I'm talking about or if I just seem like a noob. Perhaps you guys can fill me in about how you play and give me tips / ideas :) See you guys there & thanks for your time to read!!
  2. 12 years from now we will look back...

    ...and say I was there. I was there for vanilla WildStar. I was there for open beta. I was there, for the beginning of greatness. Back when it was hard. Pioneers. Pioneers, all of us. We are writing history. We are history. We are WildStar.
  3. Custom gaming rig users assemble!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the name of high fps, low temps, no bottlenecking, and self respectability!! Send these Mac users into the abyss!!!! (Gandalf's voice)
  4. Just unsubbed and am not turning back...

    ...From SWTOR. WildStar is infinitely better than not only SWTOR, but every mmo there ever was. I am committed to excellence for the long run, like Al Davis. FOR THE DOMINION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. I have been coming across many many posts about FPS issues on all different sites, this one as well! I was in search of FPS boosts for my own playing. I have come across a lot of these posts about how you should re-install windows to get better fps..... Am I the only one that thinks that's crazy bananas! I mean if you have to re-install windows to better an fps is that OK? Ahhhh nope! Its beta guys! At launch I am sure it will be better. A few months in it will run perfectly! I have no info to back this up only my experience with all other MMOs I have done beta for. I have heard that some people are even lower then my fps on good mid-lev systems. We are talking like 7-10fps... Unplayable.. Just give it some time guys! I myself won't buy a pre-order or copy of the game till I know for sure I can play with the same FPS I get in WOW, GW2, ESO and others. On all 3 of them I run at 60 doing nothing, 40-50 doing stuff, 35 - 40 in a raid. ESO is a bit lower but still smooth and nice. Wildstar - Lucky if I hit 20... Raids would not be an option. Hang in there boys! :ph34r: I know I am! :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: ---------> Wildstar
  6. Where is the hype for Wildstar? Every new MMO that comes out has been prophesied as the next WoW killer. Even though this always turns out to be false, the fanboy hype it generates does make the game more exciting. It seems that the developers themselves have really advertised as "a simply fun" game, but haven't promised to revolutionized the MMO genre in anyway. Is there a reason for this? Is the player base more mature? Or is there just a lack of enthusiasm for this game compared to the other over-hyped MMOs like Rift, GW2, and SWTOR? In my opinion I think Wildstar is a better game then the latter two, but isn't getting the recognition it deserves.
