    But as I said, I expect the majority of dedicated beta players to reach that critical point next week and then you'll see a lot more criticism.
    Fair enough. Thank you. I'll keep an eye on things until it launches and see what the consensus is and see if some more detailed information comes out between now and then.

    It's not really. It's just more of the same.

    Combat is action-orientated with a small set of moves with crafting, gathering, and territory control the main drive of the game. That's basically it.

    I am talking about his bias towards things like "animations are horrendous and incredibly shallow" - that's stupid and worthless.

    i've made it to 18 and gotta say aside from some flaws the game feels pretty solid
    Well then get your shit together.
    Get it all together. And put it in a backpack. All your shit. So it’s together. And if you gotta take it somewhere, take it somewhere, you know, take it to the shit store and sell it, or put it in a shit museum, I don’t care what you do, you just gotta get it together.
    Get your shit together

    Played 5 hours.

    Goto level 10-11.

    Holy crap this is a good game.

    Trying not to over-hype, but this, this can be something special.

    saw some video clip today that you can lie down on the ground(hidden) and snipe people with musket. that's a pretty cool detail i think.
    not the usual turn invisible magic we have for stealth stuff.
    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    I wonder if this game can be played primary PvE with little to no PvP.
    All my ignores are permanently filtered out and invisible to me. Responding to my posts with nonsense or insults is pointless, you're likely already invisible and if not - 3 clicks away. One ignore is much better than 3 pages of trolling.

    Honestly not much has changed from Alpha, they didn't expand on anything that was in there. They rebalanced the weapons, added most of WoW's instanced systems (Dungeons, Raids, PvP...) and then shoved it out.

    So my assessment on New World remains the same as it was after Alpha, "Solid Foundation, but nothing is built on top of that."

    I give this game 2 months max after release before all the sweaty guilds have conquered the world and cranked taxes up to max to feed their raid team, and then people will start quitting en masse.
    WoW has Cancer. First you cut out the cancer (abusive devs), then you assign an aggressive treatment plan (major design rework) to save it.

    Or you just let it die because that's too expensive.

    Haven't played this myself but I've watched some streams and ehhhh... Graphically looks decent but animations aren't where they need to be. I like the...atmosphere? of the game, like, the surroundings are nice and quite varied.

    But holy shit are the quests awful or what? I have literally not seen any other quests than "kill x amount of y mobs" or "loot x amount of chests".
    That shit was old and crap 10 years ago already. That is just not going to work today.

    Definitely sure. I was in the same spot in the middle of nowhere.

    Well it's immediately not a WoW competitor because it lacks certain features that attract people loyal to WoW. It's been proven and shown time and time again that WoW players want GCD based tab targeting, holy trinity, DnD derived fantasy settings, gear grinds with an emphasis on dungeons and raids. Basically they want WoW but with a different art style.

    Youre DoA if you goal is to 'kill WoW'.It heavily restricts the kind game you can make. New World is competing with ESO, survival MMOs (Ark, Atlas, Age of Conan), and GW2.

    For me it's the setting. Make the setting compelling and I'll eat the most asinine combat controls there are.

    New MMOs should stop aiming at WoW and it's 5~ million subscribers and start looking at games like Minecraft with it's 100~ million active players?

    Not saying one is clearly more superior, but why keep aiming for World of Warcraft when their formula for addictive gameplay has been dethroned tenfold?

    Not nearly the same games, though both would classify as an MMORPG.

    The story quests are different (main story and zone story). Not that different from other MMO's. Investigate this, loot that, kill boss, talk to this guy etc. Stuff is voice acted, too. It's alright.

    The spammable faction/settlement quests are indeed kill this loot that.

    Most very much have. Though chasing Minecraft is similarly a fools errand.

    Because the crowd playing WoW and Minecraft are entirely different demographic. Hence X people play WoW and Y play Minecraft.

    Hopefully they add more to the combat later in the game. When alpha was around, you'd get up in levels and realize you will never learn anymore combat moves. It put a damper on character progression.

    Yes, all PvP is voluntary.

    This is one reason why this game isn't necessarily geared towards taking any from WoW. People who don't mind a limited skill set already play different games.

    I don't know about PVE, meta builds will always be a thing, but there's tons of room in PVP for multiple builds with the same weapons. I have a farming skill set for axe, a small scale pvp, and one large.
