  • This is the kind of thing that winds me up about MMO communities nowadays. All you idiots shouting down people who are actually legitimately quite put out by not being able to spend hard earned rewards due to this. You narrow minded petty fools. You just seem to log on here to delight in other peoples grief. So say you'd…
  • Last time I saw that kind of statement on a board was in Rift. Tons of people lampooned the poor guy for shoddy passwords and using dodgy sites. After several days and the hacks reacjing a huge level some guy found out it was actually some kinda fault, hole in Trions side or somthing. He posted on the forums he was able to…
  • Could not agree more. I'm really enjoying the game, I've played MMO's Starting with UO and Everquest and have played many Beta's. Other than the lacklusture crafting (which seems to be the way things are going :( ) I have no axe to grind. I'll admit though this insiting it's Beta is driving my nuts ! Dis-proportionately…
  • It is a truly dreadful crafting system, with little skill, effort or thought involved. But hey Star Wars got away with it. For me it was summed up on a forum when somone said 'yeah great we need more of this, a crafting system for people who don't like crafting' *facepalm* Crafting was better when it took time effort an in…
  • WE HAVE A WINNER !! Nitpick all you like about definitions and the like, search desperately for definitions online where some ones opinions suits yours but in the cold light of day on their own website they chose to put an L next to it, look carefully ....there are other options for the various Beta's. they put an L.
  • No-one has anywhere stated it's the definition of Beta that there be a mandatory wipe. Just it has been until relatively recently the usual practice. Of course the fact that is much of this bad feeling would have been avoided had it happened how it used to. Ie Beta test - Wipe - official launch (take money) But of course…
  • I can't comment on the other 2 but I was in open Beta for Planetside 2 and they most certainly DID wipe before release on that !! They wiped on November the 20th before the official launch. Either way if you're right on the other 2 it's a pretty recent thing ? For many years they have done a complete wipe between Beta and…
  • The truth of the matter is that the term 'Beta' has been hijacked by marketing people to be used purely as a marketing tool to hype a game. People now use the time to find bugs, not report them and use them for personal gain on release. Whether you wanna call this beta or not...in the MMO world Beta's are not what they…
  • You've not answered my question. can YOU name an MMO that did not have a wipe between Beta and Release ? Yes you can have your definitions but I'm asking a simple question. Also would you release software that could not be reversed should an error be found that has had long term effects in a period of 'testing'
  • I'm curious. Especially from the 'developers' in this thread. Can Anyone name another MMO that did not do a full wipe between Beta and full release ? That for me is the main thing. If there is no wipe, what your saying is any mistakes that have been made before release that have a long term effect on the game are…
  • The minute they took money AND stated there would be no wipe they screwed up. This is not in my eyes a Beta. By some of the arguments above you're saying we're 'testing' and it's not the finished product. Well one question. What about bugs that WILL have a long standing effect on the economy which is lets fact it a large…
  • I for one miss the 'holy trinity' People had a role to play in a team, the rewards were reaped and shared, as a team. It's ALL about DPS in the current crop of games, and ripping through content over and over. Tanks used to pull a dungeon with a degree of skill. Being a good tank was not the same as being a good puller.…
  • If you enjoy it play it.... I've got to the stage now where I've been in the same guild with the same core of people for around 10 years. We've played many games and moved on from one to another for various reasons. As we play together and don't exploit and pass spare gear around and rarely use AH's many of these exploits…
