People do understand that this is an ARPG right?? The entire and only point to these types of games is to "Grind" kill, kill and kill some more.
So how can something that is the entire point of this type of game, make it "bad" ?? I think people making comments on game types they do not understand is "bad".
I have over 1,000 hours played. I'm 100% ok with how long it takes to get geared. If one can get decked out in a few hours of game play then what is the point? It takes time so you keep playing.
Also why do people ALWAYS compre it to games or make comments that refer to other game types that have zero releavence to the game they are commenting on.... I sware this day and age of Internet users are just retarded.
Checked it out again recently, not bad and not impressive either.
Even though they improved the game a lot at various angles and still continue to do so.. it's still as grindy and just as un-rewarding as ever.
Yes, to actually get your reward or rewards you want you need to grind, often tons and tons of grind and im not kidding you SERIOUS grind because RNG in this game is just VICIOUS.
When it comes down to challenge it seems their solution is the typical easy way out used by many game devs, namely: "let's swarm the players with tons and tons of mobs and give those mobs insane hp and damage". And thus end your challenge expectations, in utter disappointment.
There are a lot of characters you can play as which creates diversity which is good, problem starts when it comes down to balance and efficiency of those said characters, long story short - huge mess.
Skills those characters sport are often broken or/and working incorrectly, or the character may simply lack those skills at all even thou they are present in the comics.
Gaz seem to like rushing new heroes instead of fixing and updating what is already there first and only then proceeding with new content, this is how i believe it should be done, but is done not.
They also rather like warning, banning people, deleting posts often without any explanations what-so-ever. Reason's don't even matter here - they don't like something you get warnings and bans and post clean-ups. So, be careful if you plan to use their forum and what and where you say in there.
I'd even go as far as to say don't use their forum at all if you can help it or use it as less as possible, this way your account will be safer from any random surprise bans.
To sum this game up in few words: If you're a die-hard marvel universe fan + you can handle diablo-ish style of play this game may work for you, if not - very unlikely that you will hang in there for more than a month before leaving it.
And for those who can't handle some rather hardcore grind - don't bother.
- Grinding all the time
- Pay to buy your favorite hero which means no fun
- Marvel ARPG. Seriously?
Let's stick with dc universe online.
I have played a lot of free-to-play games in my time and this is one of only three that I am happy to support financially. I've purchased a few heroes during BOGO promo weeks and have opted to purchase some STASH spots to the shinies that I pick up. If you plan on playing the game, you'll likely find this a reasonable option as well because of loot-splosions.
Admittedly the game has massive room for improvement and the in-game characters tend to look like plastic toys rather than having a comic book or cartoony flavor.
Just a little FYI though, beware the unimaginable RNG that you will face in this game. It's not really obvious until you really staring getting into it, but everything has RNG. Even your critical hits, which is already a chance occurrence, has a further chance to deal even more damage.
Finally I'm curious, for the folks who don't like the game, is there an MMO that you do like and if so which one? I'd honestly like to know.
