I think Toa will be great, oki in the end it makes all chars overpowerd, BUT it will require a little more skill to use the 6-8 abilities you get on your artifacts, you can almost impossible cap all on your SC armor if you want some artifacts.
Dont expect WOW until summer for us here in EU, the betatesting tend to take a along time when blizzard is involved .... so im gonna try TOA out. Not really longing for more PVE farming but i guess i have to do it cause everyone else will and i will prolly miss loads of Fluff.
I saw that u have to be alot of persons to do those master hunts in TOA maybe that can bring back some of the old Daoc spirit when ppl actually where nice and stopped to chat for a while... oh i miss the old days.
Im buying it, Might even keep the worst zergs away since people are xping their artifacts ^^
Besides, will prolly be lot of fun, i have hated the evolvement of this game all the time, im still angry they implented SC and Df armor Even RA's was rather anoying, but those did at least make people play more, so dont complain about that...
The fact they now give potentional raised caps, makes the game totaly off-shore. I still remember alpha and the others good stealthers twisting everything on and off, changing armor and such to always have the best against excactly that opponement... Now with enough cash, time and will (and waaay to many have this) you can twist to have way over caps against a known enemies damage, think this will fuck up a bit..
But! Sticking with daoc til the moralistic end Will never be worse then Anarchy online or savage eden is anyways ^^
will...get...wow, but who knows, maby i stick with daoc.. Horizons was a horrible dissapointment, that was what i had planned to quit daoc for :/ (then again... blizzard dont fail! give wow )
Im going to buy it..... could not hold my hands away so i had to buy ToA to my old USA Acc just to check it out and i like it ..... and the things they say on VNboards about ToA have made ALOT of people quit i don't believe because on the server Merlin there i have my Char i have never seen so many people before ToA got there.
Last night at EST primetime it was 797 people not anon on Midgard Merlin and Midgard is not the biggest realm there
Well, i'm certain it will have huge class/ability balancing issues, I'm sure people will whine when someone else uses an ability upon them that they dont themselves have... and i'm sure people will moan (a lot) and threaten to quit etc...
Personally, i'm gonna buy it because I dont want to play they same game, without changes for the rest of eternity.. and for once I really want to explore a few dungeons/zones that dont have a mind numbing similarity to many of the other dungeons/zones.
