    If it's pay to play it's nothing for me at all, and with Jay Wilson on the roster it is hard seeing it being a good game.

    What exactly is the "established blizzard style"? If it means wow style graphics then whats this "new game engine"? Like all leaks, this one can't be trusted either.
    A new game engine mean a lot of new pshysics and real time calculations.

    Weather/lighting/character animations/environmental effects (explosions on buildings etc).

    and much much more.

    Norsemen had one of the most interesting mythologies ever created. Elves, dwarves, trolls, ... are all from Norse mythology. So yeah, you could say everything with fantasy in it is a great part Norse, even LOTR, etc.

    Blizzcon tickets announced the day after this "leak". This was hardly a leak. Blizz did this on purpose. There's just enough info that you don't really know anything but you still want to know more, and then the "more will be released at Blizzcon", to make people salivate for tickets. Smooth Blizz.

    Anyone else find this information to be less exciting as the speculation? It sounds pretty...bland to me. Based on Earth history, incorporates mythology, and has time travel....like...are you kidding me? Also...the bit about porting WoW characters over...umm...no?

    My interest for this just hit rock bottom. Guess I won't be a part of the hype train, no matter how amazing the cinematic teaser at Blizzcon is.

    and when i said (if you believe this leak is credible) i meant you as in general not specific

    Someone linked a post that admitted the Time Travel was a lie. I don't believe the leak is true but we'll know at Blizzcon.

    Don't like the Tab targeting and PG 12+

    Everything else sounds interesting, though too vague.

    Titan will be based in a universe where you travel between Blizzard Fanboys (similarly to time travel) in order to acquire various "shards of justification" which unlock features such as real money microtransactions (which make the in-game economy unpalatable, unless you have a couple grand to spend) etc in order to build a community of elitists who are such because it's the only way to justify the ever-growing sunk cost of participation, even though the insanity is immediately obvious to anybody on the outside looking in (None of which was ever considered necessary in an MMO before) but large numbers of players take whatever they are given because they hide their own lack of satisfaction with their lives behind video games, which are now controlled by a Monopoly of big publishers who are driven primarily by bottom line than by the artistic merits of their projects and rather than spend money on great indie gaming projects people would rather stand around in a big sweaty lineup at Walmart at 12:01am for 12 hours just to get their hands on the latest copy of "Call of Doody 15: Sequel of the Quarter edition" so that they can pretend they'll have something worthwhile to discuss with their classmates and/or coworkers the next day.

    And for this reason, I'm out.

    Maybe they are planning for Korea to not exist after WW3 finishes around the same time this game comes out 5 years from now? *shrug* who knows?

F2P isn't quite as bad as day-one DLC (which is absolutely infuriating - especially when it's not provided for free for those who preorder but even on it's own it's a bad situation) but it's often not done in a good way.

    I'm excited for this, can't wait to see what it turns into. I especially like the use of the greek, roman, and viking myths they're gonna use. Easily my favorite three.

    I think I would have liked to see an action mmorpg with a few abilities though. It seems like to me that it's gonna be like wow just in a different universe.

    That's rarely the case in modern Western MMO's. They skirt the issue a bit from time to time, but there aren't any that I can think of recently that continue to flat out sell power anymore.

    The shitty Eastern imports? Yeah, they still do that. But those games have micro playerbases and function off of a budget that's beyond tiny.

    Also, sub-based games don't necessarily deliver content updates any more or less frequently than F2P games. Look at the huge dry spells in WoW between patches (pre-MoP) or pre-expansion, or check out the dry spells in some other MMO's before they went F2P. Subscriptions don't inherently yield any greater frequency/quality of patches compared to F2P/B2P games.

    Well it was more of a stab at the direction the video game industry is headed.

    I think it's safe to say that if it's a multi million dollar investment, Titan is going to follow a very "safe" business model.

    I would expect nothing revolutionary about it, and combined income from box sales, subscription and microtransactions. Probably "free" exclusive in-game fun items for people who are also subscribed to WoW. "Look at me I'm playing Titan but I can make myself look like Thrall for 5min every 3 hours, totally worth remaining subscribed to WoW". And naturally whatever is popular on television and the box office will make it into the game, so expect zombies and vampires.

    i must say, i am a little bit ... underwhelmed.

    That maybe because only few details have been leak so far so i reserved judgement. I mean, blizzard is incontestably the most successful MMO company in the world, they went from a novice on the MMO market to a master, leading the market.

    Back when wow just launch, all they did is copy and add blizzard polish to a well known recipe (everquest, lineage...). There were new, so it's ok to not wander outside known path. But now, they have developed by far the most successful MMO to date, 8 years old and counting. They must have the strongest MMO experience on the planet. Beside, Titan have been in development since 2007, it's fair that we are expecting ground breaking advances. I mean, the term WoW clone is usually directed to product outside blizzard game, right?

    we don't know yet the actual combat mechanics, i really hope it's not yet another hotkey MMO, but the classical tab targeting implies auto aim, min-max range, nothing new so far.

    So yeah, i hope i'm wrong, but it look SSDD to me.

    My history teacher told me that some viking berserkers were mercs and guess what? They were hired by kings and emperors in the middle east as royal guards because they were so feared. He also said that there were rumors that a single berserker could bring down like 5-7 normal soldiers since they were so big and intimidating, now imagine like 10 of these as royal guards :P I don't have a source on this except my teacher so feel free to look it up
    I've heard of this a well.

    Yes, I just had to link that one:




    What some people seem to forget is that the norse mythology is incredible rich with all the gods, dwarves, giants, elves, darkelves, trolls etc. in it.

    'Heavy use of Greek, Roman and Viking myths' doesn't mean history lessons about fishermen travelling to faraway coasts or Socrates having a sociocritical conversation; it means bloody fcuking mythology of gods and men.

    Let's hope they have the balls to do it right.
