I can't stand MMORPGs. WoW is the only one I enjoy. This is because most other MMORPGs are boring crapfests, in my opinion. If it's such common knowledge that WoW isn't a good MMO, you should have trouble explaining its extremely high review ratings and enormous subscriber base. Or are you saying that your opinion of what makes an MMO good is absolute and all-encompassing?

yes and you are stating what everyone else states. While what you said is fine and good, WoW really isn't a good MMORPG. I love Blizzard to death but its not. I'm not argueing with you, but I do ask that you go to www.vanguardsoh.com and just take a look at the forums. I am willing to bet 50% of the people on those forums do in fact play WoW. Even though they play WoW, most all of them agree that it is not a very good MMO.

Like I said, I can't argue with you and make you change your mind. Maybe you can do some of your own research and find out for yourself.

My only issue with wow was the boring end game and all the "Blizz kiddies".

WoW is a very exceptional game. It is one of few games that will give you a truly 'massive' feeling about the world. I would highly recommend fully checking out the servers and faction balance before committing to anything. Warcraftrealms.com can you show you that basic info, just keep in mind it's not 100% accurate.

I also have found that Horde tends to be the better faction as it has less kiddies just wanting to look at a hot night elf hunter named 'Legolass' or some variation. Horde also tends to be the lesser populated side, which means less immature asshats. I have also found that PvP servers tend to have better skilled players because they have had to 'stay on their toes' during leveling instead of being in easy carebear mode on a PvE server.

Lastly, check out ui.worldofwar.net. You WILL need mods to be able to properly participate in end game raiding. Only a few would probably be required, and you will definetly see more that you will like to use that are class specific or a UI mod. Ctmod is the must have mod IMO. They are all easy to install and remove if you don't like or need.

Good luck and have fun with that massive time-sink. :P

The rest are just... meh
Don't even compare DAOC to the grindfest of EQ. People played DAOC because they were tired of EQ and it's "Raid all day, Raid all night" gameplay. Also if you are expecting a EQ1 clone with Vangaurd you are going to get a rude awakening as the dev's already stated in their FAQ that Vangaurd wont be a EQ1 clone.

As for WoW....been there, done that, raided till my eyes bleed. Right now am passing the time with EQ2 untill Warhammer Online rolls.

My general take on WoW is this: The game is an absolute blast 1-59. Constantly finding new lands to explore, cool quests to go on, and new instances to explore and conquer. It's twice as good if you do it with friends. Once you hit 60 it goes on a steady downhill fall. ZG, MC, BWL and the AQ's are fun the first few times, but once you learn the encounters and strats they are mind-numbingly boring. Thus begins the gear grindfest so you can get gear to do the next gear grindfest dungeon so you can do the next gear grindfest dungeon so you can do the next gear grindfest dungeon so you can do the next gear grindfest dungeon, et cetra et cetra.

The only real reward out of it all is being able to zerg level 56 warriors wearing blues in AV. But even that get's boring after a while, and all real PvP competition is lost to huge class and itemization imbalances. Whoever's guild has progessed the furthest endgame wins PvP. Sure skill plays a role, but gear is so ridiculously powerful/is exponentially better with each dungeon at high levels that the importance of gear drastically outweighs the importance of skill. A retard playing with a 60 warlock in good gear could own anyone. SKILLCOIL AMIRITE? Those that choose to PvP and don't want to raid really have no options gear-wise to compete. Rank 14 you say? Sure! If you want to grind CP for 16 hours a day for 3 months straight...

So, I did like a lot of people end up doing. Twinking. Generally only 19 and 29 are fully twinked BG's. Gear is limited and (for the most part) easily acquirable with a level 60 to run you through low-level instances. Yes, some gear is better/harder to get than other gear, but it isn't entirely game-breaking or making. Enchants do play a slight roll (my 19 twink warrior has 1500 HP, WTF AMIRITE?), but most everyone that is twinking a character has those enchants available to him/her. The competition is insane (twink guilds vs twink guilds) and it's fairly enjoyable.


But hey, whatever you like goes, enjoy the game however you can.

GamerGuyX - You will have to give Vanguard : Saga of Heros a try when it comes out. But some people might not like it. It's values and "Vision" (tm) are for the HARDCORE gamer. The graphics are sweet and I'm SURE the game play is awesome. And that is all I will say about that. BTW, they are currently in Beta 3 and it should release Winter 06/07 (Ie. November - Feb)...
