Haven't gotten in yet, but I spent the weekend trying out Wildstar. I guess GW2 spoiled MMOs for me, because I couldn't get into it at all.

GW2 endgame is incredibly lacking, and the combat feels so clunky, not sure how that's spoiling you.

Endgame PVE definitely needs some love. Otherwise it's far better than any other MMO I've played.

My Battle.net name is: Stexe#1579

Not sure if anyone here plays it (I stopped for a while since I've been focusing on Card Hunter and trying to get a job), but I'll probably pick it up again soon.

So, I haven't played it or even applied for an invitation for the game. Is it even worth a play? I mean I was interested a while back, but I've become pretty damn cynical considering the current state of games in the genre and the incompetence of Blizzard.

HAHAHAHAHA, I just saw some gameplay for the first time!!

It's an ugly LoL clone! It's even uglier than LoL! Blizzard is producing shovelware, I'm laughing my ass off right here. This is amazing. I sure as hell won't be playing this uninspired garbage.

Eh I enjoy it a lot more than LoL. No last hitting/laning phase is <3 for me. Team exp can be quite annoying when your team is clearly worse than the opponents but I suppose you should probably lose that kinda game anyway.
It's also super teamwork based which is both good and bad.

The game plays nothing like LOL or Dota. Comparing it to LOL is pretty funny because they look nothing alike and the game play is significantly different.

Saying it looks worse than lol is also interesting because it's definitely the best looking moba on the market.

To each his own.

Got no opinion on topic right now, but I recently came across this article looking at match patterns.

Wow that's interesting... They really look nothing alike. Look at the fidelity of the character models, the color palette, the general noise level, the shaders, the normal maps, the lighting etc.

You probably thought DOTA 2 looked like LOL I guess...

These are the most similar images I could find and even here the differences are huge. Congratulations they both have grass. League's art style was always just a poor rendition of Blizzard's. If you expected Blizzard to make something wildly different than the style they developed you are bound to be disappointed.

Troll away though if you like.

I wonder how many more times Blizzard is going to re-use WC3 icons.
