More then agree. At least 5th position should be wow, otherwise they should change article tittle to 6 greatest ....
He, he, ... hope you are not Funcom employee. :-) Because Funcom is not nicked Failcom without reason. It has WORST history of bad releases ever. Wondering how they still exists by rules of economy. I'm pretty sure name of maker influenced to some degree low sales, also bad timing with GW2 and MOP release, to close maybe. I have all of them but not all can afford. Many have vaged what to buy and guess decided for Gw2 or MOP.
But as I said, game is very playable with my new w7 64bit (on same computer as my disastrous 32bit experience). But then they should advertise one NEED specifically w7 and specifically 64bit version to be able to play without zillion crashes. No, they advertise game plays on xp as well. But nothing, not even lowering all setting to practically zero did not help.
Ok, after have purchased W7 64bit and spent also for new hard disk all together I guess over 300€ for my old computer, still for me main problem, button mashing remain. Reminds me of games that use 2 mouse buttons for all you can do with your avatar. Bad, just bad, uninteresting, unfun.
I guess will be at some point back to check status of game. But there are a lot of better things to try or play, mop, gw2, rift, swtor, ....
Game was and it is still promising. But as usually for Funcom, plagued by bugs and very bad support. I have been getting at least 3 client crashes per hour with my w7 32bit. All I got from support was suggestion to spend few houndreds of euro for new windows 7 specifically 64-bit. Which eventually I did at the end as I was planning anyway. And really on w7 64bit game experience as fluid as could be, great. But I hope they seriously do not expect making game that one will spend 5 times aprox game client cost for new windows.
Other problem was game become very fast total button masher with only 7 active buttons. And at 1/3 of levels up i have been mainly still using basic one. This was really main reason i stopped to play before even 30 free days.
About impressive number of abilities on wheel ... total bs. 95% completely useless and unappealing, just pure filler ups. Like cable tv where they advertise having 999 channels, but only 10 are really worth watching.
Wow graphics are great, that cartoony look make them evergreen. Simple as that. No need to change anything unles for some small tweaks. Besides working on any computer.
Not sure why comment disappeared ... will try in short.
Graphics engine is 8 years old with few upgrades and wow still looks fresh and fabolous. Every expansion have superb breath taking views. Could be because of trademark "cartoony" look that never gets old, as stand for me, does not need any upgrade. All is working completely smooth with all settings on max, not even minimal lag on my computer. Had pretty a lot of problems with many engines, mainly Aoc, War, TSW, ... Many. No problems with wow, Rift and Gw2.
Sub model will (hopefully) never die. Would be tragedy. Trash games however I agree could never ever even live on sub model. I.e. gw1, Aion, Rappelz, ... I just hope so called f2p plague never gets to wow, Rift, Swtor. GW2 is here first exception of great game on P2P model. Exception.
