#4217389 Project Titan: Cancelled

Posted Lolflay on 25 September 2014 - 10:15 AM

Whenever someone mentions a viable WoW replacement, I always envision WoW, just ran by different people.

I've tried multiple MMO's, SWTOR and Rift being the most fun amongst the bunch. SWTOR was fucking amazing, but it lacked PvP end-game content in the start, and abilities "lagged" because of the way engine was coded, allowing no real fluidity between actions. It was fluid enough to not notice it all the time and to actually enjoy the game, mind you, but in a PvP setting it kind of lacked. When they finally added arenas in SWTOR, it was too late for the PvP population. Arena scene is kind of dead in there, with you meeting the same 20-30 people daily.  Comps don't matter though, skill does, and healers are kind of like what they are in the current state of MoP. Oh, and Tanks are what Blizzard should aim for, seeing they obviously want tanks in PvP in WoD. Tanks have an ability called "Guard", which redirects % of damage into Tanks HP pool, and they do 30-40% DPS of an ordinary DPS class, without extra retarded control and shit like that. Basically a proper combo is Tank+DPS+DPS+Healer.

Rift on the other hand offered WAY TOO MUCH content. Leveling 40-60 was so fucking boring that I wanted to gouge my eyes out. After hitting max level, I realized it'd take me 2-3 months of gearing up to even be able to stand a chance against people who are already geared, it'd take even more time to get on equal footing/surpass them. PvP was also too boring for the new guy to get into. It was easy to catch the basics since I was pretty damn good in WoW, and that game copied WoW's combat and spells to a certain extent ( you basically had a affli warlock, fire mage, etc all in one class ), and it felt like it had no real meaning to get good in the game, as I couldn't compare myself to others.


I kind of understand why every class got so fucking dumbed down in MoP, though. Getting into WoW as a fresh player and learning the game properly in a reasonable period of time to compete with already established players ( PvE or PvP ) took a lot of time and effort, and I don't even want to know how hard was it for a random Joe who just made his level 1 character to be even close to my level of play in WoTLK/Cata ( TBC was also really hard to get into from level 1, but easier than WoTLK/Cata/MoP seeing this site provided absolutely everything for a new player in PvP, unlike in other expansions where it became a e-peen stroking contest between established players who here and then offered some insight to newbies asking questions ).

This paragraph above explains exactly the mentality they have with this game. They will probably never return the combat feeling of TBC/WoTLK, simply because they probably don't believe they're able to hook up old players on the game anymore, and are instead trying to create a game for newer players. Idiots like Jaime being the prime example, S13/S14 nobody ( interrupt hacking got his name some recognition though ), S15 3k rated while using Gladiatorlosa and winning games by randomly proccing on people and calling it skill.


If they pulled their shit together and made WoD the best thing since sliced bread, I'm sure they'd attract both old and new players alike again. Cataclysm was a pure failure of an expansion, and MoP followed those footsteps quite closely ( I remember Glad push in s11 on my warlock, LSD2 vs LSD2 mirrors with PvE gear, both sides trying to do the most PvE possible, the only thing that mattered was the damage done on the end of the game - MoP is even worse than this seeing it removed the passive damage factor and introduced a necessity in doing 100-0 gibs on people during healer CC ).

If WoD flops, and subs continue to plummet, I can see them pulling the Sargeras card, attracting shitloads of people to see what they think is the end of game, and then continue milking the game for one more expansion before shutting it down. We'll see though.

ok guys i have returned with news

for those of you who have been following these terrible acts of extortion, you may know who i am from reporting live on the scenes and taking the issues straight to the bad guys themselves and hitting them where it hurts: in their taxes

everyone else please observe my older pieces of work on the matter and be informed. these guys are (maybe) taking money in the name of charity and pocketing some or all (or none) of it for themselves. this is immoral (not illegal because i have no evidence) and needs to be stopped

Spoiler

my first course of action was to call the irs after i supplied them with information about these scumbags and i provided them with my contact info. they told me i didn't have enough information. this seemed fishy because despite having no evidence, i had a hunch and provided them with the twitch streams of all of the offenders as well as a link to the video. that's when it started to get bad

they told me that they would not be launching a full blown investigation. i went to other parts of the government to check up on this "save the children" organization. turns out they are a "reputable charity" with a "previous commitment to accomplishing their mission statement." typical fancy lawyer talk. i smelled somethin fishy

thats when i figured it out. nmp has been making so much money off of youtube that he bought the us government, which is why the irs wouldn't help me kick down the doors of the skill capped gaming house, and provided cover for this fake charity that reckful made to steal money that people would have donated to him if he was just streaming normally anyway

but my plan was still the same. i was going to take it to the skill capped gaming house, which is why i went down there in person to perform a citizens arrest on all of them. they were all standing outside with a big machine to print money, and they were trying to fill the whole pool with money. nmp was swimming in it, but he was drowning because he is not a very good swimmer.

i snuck up behind them and got ready to make my move with my camera phone ready to capture the action, but i got spotted and venruki threw a rock in my face. i ran away because it hurt a lot

no place is safe now. i am temporarily giving up on my quest to stop the skill capped bandits while my face heals. moral of the story, the man is keeping us down and this whole thing is one big conspiracy funded off the money nmp is making on youtube. next time i go in i will be more careful

holy..i've said and done some pretty stupid shit a few years ago when I was a little more immature and had a huge ego, but even I never went to the level of douche-baggery of this nmp guy

i've said this a million times or more on my stream: unless you're streaming consistently to 5K+ viewers, you aren't making more money than any normal educated person with a job, unless you're getting extremely high donations from some rich dude from another country (in which case you should try the casino sometime)

any intelligent person should steer clear from trying to make a living off streaming. once your game of choice dies out, you are in big trouble (ie destiny who used to pull 7-8K viewers consistently or idra who used to pull 8-15K viewers consistently; both pushing ~3k on average on a good day now)


Get an education, get a stable job, build your resume, do whichever one floats your boat and enjoy your employment benefits, 401K, pension, etc because they will serve you in the long run. You don't want to be 50 years old and base your existence on whether Billy , age 17, got ahold of his mom's credit card or whether Mohammed, age 41, living in Dubai, feels generous today and wants to donate some of his wealth to you.

Also we might do dumb shit like that, but don't worry this house still has more rank 1 titles combined than the people in this thread.

Leveling out the playing field.

What happened to WoW Riot/Gameriot? That would've been an awesome place for shit like this. I miss that guy who always made the best photoshops (forgot his name :( ). Why am I in the mood for ice cream? I feel like I'm talking to myself. Why do people love to hate and hate to love? Hi.

you can call me a retard all you want sir. Still making more $$ than you, still better than you at this game.

Can't see how this is losing. Maybe you should come to the skill capped house and we can chat.

Wait you didn't get the invite. Interesting..

Guys seriously do you even know how many times he has saved the raid group cause of the second interrupt? Its mindblowing when you think about it, I dont think we can fully understand the complex situation of PvE interrupts. The mindgame between the raid boss and tank must be exhausting with all the jukes

It's not a matter of opinion. I tried all 3, I played at a very high too. LoL's success is a lot because of how easy it is to learn, play and how shitty an engine it requires to run. League is also very static in that you have pretty much same lanes each single game.

HoN on the other hand is a lot more fast paced and can be really hard to get into, map "feels" smaller and it really comes down to counterpicking a lot, more than Dota and LoL. This is also reflected in the amount of hero kills you see in competitive matches vs. Dota

Dota 2 is a bit slower than HoN, easier to learn and get started with aswell and the community is just so much better. Balance is better overall and its in my opinion the best one if you actually want a good game

Fun to watch, although quite fucking hilarious changing game files to show "High Warlord" as "Furious Gladiator".
