Yeah, the group finder kinda blows; the combat system is pretty good. Theres many more mmos out there with worse combat systems (SWToR, DCO, and Aion to name a few.) If you have no problems with these combat systems, which includes myself, then this is a great game. Just an FYI for the gamers that heard bad reviews about the combat system. Theres been alot of tweaking since beta, thats when a majority were written. Grab a free trial, thoroughly enjoy the content (btw, this isnt a game for kids. lol)
If this AWESOME mmo doesnt grab you with the lvl 5 content (Kingsmouth, which is the 1st zone,) then its not the game for you. If you're lvl 10 and still having problems with Kingsmouth, this is definitely not the game for you. Like it? Buy it... The intricate storylines involved do require a little more attention than someone trying to outlvl the trial. If you hit the 3rd zone (Blue Mtn,) on a limited free trial, you've missed alot of content.
Those numbers are truly an achievement... Much like the awestruck Richard Garriott - Tabula Rasa of yesteryear. It is unknown whether his nestegg rested from NCSoft fueled the upcoming Ultima Online genesis. Seeing how NCSoft is a Fortune 500 equivalent in euro-asia terms, a couple 20mil lawsuits shouldnt hurt too much. Those of you that could care less of TR, he was also on the producing staff of CoH and CoV. So as an afterthought, plan ahead and ponder where your supergroup is going to get to work next... Millennium City or Metropolis, the choices are slim as we know?
Astonishing as it is, most of the City of Heroes community has boycott the GW2 project. Meanwhile, others that have already invested in the GW2 pre-order are adamant that it is in fact an AlertNet item (not truly NCSoft.) Guild Wars has been a flagship of NCSoft for quite some time, know this before hanging your hat there.
A plethora of information is given from the same medium, which everyone is sooo quick to hit the ESC Button upon... Cinematic Events. How do you do this, what is that, where is this quest? Watch the cinematic event, the clues are there (or sometimes more than not, it slaps you upside the head with the answers.) One main cinematic event is the Training Room. Yes, he doesnt state you can replace AP and SP, but he does say come back whenever you want, try new things, hone your skills, train... train... train... In the Training Room? Thats just crazy. And the best part of the movie, he says, 'Once you leave here, all things are permanent.' Wtf does that mean anyways? Okay, that is kinda bold, and different starting areas have different cinematic events. The premise is the same though, its a Training Room after all. Again, who has time for silly things like cinematic events, reading a user or gaming manual, or even a few annoying tutorial quests on Crafting and Runeforging? I have zombies to kill, that worthless crap impedes my progress. (Or does it?)
