    How about playing like Vindictus?

    Well, it's like vindictus in that it doesn't have a cross hair (yet) and more like GW2 in that you can move while attacking.

    I would say that GW2 with combat mode is the closest match to Wildstar with their combat mode.

    @Zito: Yeah... We shall just have to see what happens. It's not that they don't like it, more that they "don't know how they feel about it".

    Again, according to the internet. Who knows what's really happening???

    I like GW2 combat so that doesn't bother me. I was just stating my combat preference. If any game would come out with Vindictus combat in an open world, I would live in that game (providing the rest of the game would be good of course).

    If I was referring to the quote "Don't know how they feel about it" I would be referring to it and not the statement "we don't like it"

    Just curious...is getting into beta (or is it alpha? not sure) 100% random or are there contests/etc?

    Does anyone else think its a bad idea for wildstar to have an LFD tool similar to WoW? Personally I don't agree with it, just wondering about the opinion of others

    Not really. It's essentially become a "necessary" feature for most MMO's nowadays. I'd personally prefer a tool that wasn't automated but simply functioned like what exists in EQ2, Aion, GW1 and a few other games, but not launching with one will end up worse for them than launching with one. Rift and SWTOR both launched without one and it was a big sore point for a lot of players, leading to the inclusion of the tool in both games.

    I think an automated one would be fine, Though it should at least require you to discover the dungeon first via exploration before you can queue for it. Non automated has its downfalls as well. Just look at guild wars 2 online lfg, you cant even find a group unless you of specific classes for the most damage potential. Sure, balance issue, but at the same time, the have it now attitude of players fuels the need on an impartial tool.

    I disagree on the specific point about gw2lfg. The specific nature of it is only for one particular part of one dungeon (CoF path 1, wish they would buff the hell out of it to change peoples patterns). Everything else has been fine. You'll still find some individual player bias but that is human nature there.

    The good news is that there are others that agree with you. Group/guild/circle them and that way you guys can do it the way you want to. Worst case scenario if there are rewards joined to the finder like WoW has is to run to the dungeon together and queue for it once you get there. The benefit of the tool is there is nothing keeping you from using it, and if you feel it worsens your experience, prepare to be revitalized by doing the above!

    So I have been thinking. When I started out playing wow I rolled on Lothar server because my brother-in-law was there. This was a med/low pop server and really sucked after I stopped being a noob to mmos. With Wildstar being a new ip how can I avoid ending up on a low pop server with the first toon I roll. I'm looking to be in the min Wildstar drops so waiting to see where people flock to is out of the question. Any ideas?

    I don't think its that bad of a thing imo. If you don't like it there are many that share that same view. That's what guilds are for. Me personaly I would rather run with guild members most of the time. That being said if my guildies are not on I would rather have a random que than trying to find people in general chat. Just easier imo.

    You won't be able to avoid being on a low pop server when Wildstar launches because every server will be high to full population.

    You'll have to wait a month or two for the servers to die down a little bit. I found looking on the forums is a good thing to figure out which servers are losing people/gaining people.

    If you want to play it safe, choose a realm that has an interesting name, let it be lorewise or just normally. People tend to flock to servers that have a big lore character (Kil'jaeden is an example) or sounds interesting (thinking Fatman was a massive server in swtor). Since this is a new IP, it'll be a bit tougher but pretty much a crapshoot for long term. Maybe they'll have high retention so you don't need to worry

    When the hell is thing out, been following it for a while now and each new thing I see on it makes me more excited, I started out with careful optimism but now I'm throwing my money at the screen.

    No one knows. The developers are wanting to release it this year but that seems a bit optimistic. I'd wager around January/February of next year but that is just my guess.

    No, just you. LFD is a MUST for any new mmo out there. I wouldn't even consider playing a modern mmo which has no fully automated wow-like LFD tool.

    I feel ya man. I heard about it about a year and a half ago. Didn't really start following it hardcore till 5 or 6 months ago. I just try to soak up any info I can about it. To answer your question they have not set a date yet. The devs have said that they would like it to release this year and are working as hard as they can to meet that deadline. That being said imo the game will be early 2014 Feb. or March.

    It's not like there have been many MMO's coming out lately LOL

    I don't know any other MMO which has an LFD tool other than WoW :/

    LFD is fine a long its server only and not wide like wow. that would at least make people be nice to others cause they are from the same server.
    there's a bunch of mmos out there that have lfd and no-one uses it anyway they rather spam the chat.
