    I really need to start playing again. I just hope it works better performance wise. Last time I played places like London were a slide show.

    Yeah, I keep meaning to jump back in but get distracted with other games >.<

    For me I'm waiting for Issue 7. I've done all missions in the game, soloed all the Nightmare missions in transylvania (in green gear, was a blast to finally get Vampire's Nest). I just don't want to manually find a group of random strangers anymore for dungeons I don't know, so I've run out of things to do.

    How is the game doing I am installing it now since I got a better video card.
    I got it right after it went b2p but I haven't been able to play it since because with my last video card I would be lucky to get 10fps.

    It's doing ok. Pretty stable atm. Most people are waiting for Issue 7 to come out in a week or two.

    Cool.

    I figured I would give this a go again. I am personally tired of fantasy MMO's and what I really want is a sandbox MMO like SWG was but there isn't any out right now that is worth a dam.

    Really hopping this is a lot different then most MMO's in the lore/design feel.

    Payed like 30$ for this and I haven't really played it because my old video card was crap and I could barely get 10fps also the optimization was bad when I tryed the game "right after it went b2p"

    Has the optimization gotten better?

    It's about the same, but of course with a good enough graphics card it should run just fine.

    Awesome the reason I say that optimization was bad "in my opinion" was because on low settings I could get 20-25fps from guild wars 2 but in TSW I got like 7-10 no matter where I was at and I had to run on the lows res possible.

    My new video card "XFX 7750" should run it just fine on low or maybe mid settings.

    Dreamworld engine creates some amazing looking things, but damn if it doesn't take a space shuttle to run the games on max. When you finally get into the game, just take your time and enjoy things. Be sure to listen to all the optional character dialogue. Ask any questions you have here, and we'll try to help.

    Will do been wanting to check it out and for some reason some of the combat and character design in videos of endgame reminds me of city of heroes....no clue why tho.

    Oh this is a different MMO, believe me.
    The engine is beautiful but, performance-wise it has many issues.
    If you are having troubles, remember to switch from DX11 to DX9, the game performs a lot better.
    As Sj said, don't rush it, the questing experience is unlike any other MMO out there.

    Just started won't get to play until later because its like 3:30am lol but right now I can run nearly 35fps at high settings on DX9 and res of 1280 x 720 "That res is native to my monitor.

    So now ill be able to give the game a fair shake just later because I am tired lol I only made a toon to check out the settings.

    Only thing I don't like so far is the whole first name/nick name/last name setup.

    I dropped in last night for a bit of fun. It is easily the most atmospheric mmorpg I have ever played, just fantastic.

    but damn my computer just struggles with this game. If I didn't have performance issues I'd be playing it a lot more.

    I agree, although it never felt like a very social MMO to me. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, because like you said it has atmosphere in spades. Like some other posters have mentioned, it is very dark and heavy....so I had to take a break myself. I do recommend people interested in a mature rpg experience with puzzle elements to give this one a go.

    Popping back to vouch for these statements. I wasn't looking for a social MMO, so that was nice, but the atmosphere I can only take in small doses. It's great that it went B2P, so that some point in the future I can return. The story is fantastic and the overall design is very well done.

    I just apparently don't want to live in a seedy world of demons on a daily basis. Haven't played in a couple of months, but will naturally return in the future just for the story. I've realized video games are starting to become like interactive books to me. I don't have a problem with it, but it is an odd development.

    Well, to be completely honest, modern MMOs are not so social anyway.
    In TSW, while the questing is not always a social experience (although I often see people questing together, plus all quests being repeatable and having no hard-levels is a huge advantage) it gets more social at the end game, both for PvE and PvP, were a nice cabal and a rich friends list will benefit you a lot. The only critique is that the game is not Massively at any point whatsoever.

    The social bit is really dependent on finding a good cabal. It's an easy game to RP in (I always stay "in-character," even though my character is basically me) which helps in making friends. The dark atmosphere does grate a bit, but I counteract it by spending a lot of time in Scorched Desert and Fusang.

    Been playing a bit more the past few days, started a new character. There is like nobody in Kingsmouth though, makes a bit sad.
