TESO has hit just the right MMO spot for me, at least for now.  I wasn't completely overwhelmed with all that was the greatness of Skyrim; it was almost too open world / sandbox, for me anyway.  TESO has taken Skyrim and downsized it, put part(s) of it on rails, watered it down a bit, and then allows me to interact with other living players.  I'm sure once I start slogging through Vet levels I'll be singing another tune but for now I can't be pulled away for what Paelos very accurately described as a " dodging ground effects simulator "

/sadf as I had relatively high hopes for Wildstar early on.  NOW COME OVER HERE CROWFALL AND HUG ME.

Wildstar dodgeing would be better if it had the GW2 mechanic that actually allows you to dodge

I have an EU key for this.  It's on the test server.  Anyone?

Edit:  There aren't any region restrictions so everyone plays on the same server.  If you want to play.  Which I don't, really.

So f2p officially has begun.  I'll give this another go and see if enough has changed to warrant it taking up space on my hard drive.

Heh.  I tried to log in and it said it wouldn't let me because it didn't recognize the IP (I've moved).  It sent the authentication code to my old email address.  So, I tried to change the email at the account page.  It too requires an IP address it recognizes, so it sent me another authentication email to my dead email address.

I search support and see that I need to submit a support ticket.  Guess what the support ticket form requires?  It needs to recognize your IP! Another code sent off into the ether.

Well I managed to login to the website without issues, but now I've got the same problem as when I tried to get back into GW2 recently. I had a Google Authenticator on the account, and I no longer have the phone it was tied to. Arena.net fixed it in about 15 minutes. Let's see how NCSoft does.

Edit: Answer: 5 minutes. Yay!

Yesterday I sent a support ticket for a similar reason and they replied back after about 3 hours (not bad considering the circumstances). In my case, I don't own a smartphone (long live Nokia N95 8GB!!!!)r, so I use WinAuth to "emulate" Google Authenticator, but I forgot the secret code that tied the software to Wildstar, hence I couldn't deactivate it myself.

Waiting to see what happens in this situation.  I had a sub back in 2014 for a few months and thought I'd check out the changes after the F2P conversion.  All good up until the two factor auth part.  Recently got a new phone (hadn't actually installed Google auth app yet) and I managed to lose the recovery string code somewhere on my HD.  D'oh.  I sent an email to their support drop late last night PST.  I'm hoping that by the time I get home from work today they have it cleared from my account so I can check out the game tonight.  See what happens I guess.

Wonder what happened to my old level 40 whatever character?  And my space-house full of mis-matched furniture?

I wouldn't be in a rush to get in and play. There is a global lag that effects everything currently. It takes 5 to 25 seconds (sometimes longer) to do anything at all, from looting to interacting with things or even accepting quests/rewards.  Invisible mobs that kill you because you can't attack, environmental effects not in sync with telegraph locations. You can even end up in completely different zones if you die.

Edit: Their "mega" servers are also shitting the bed. Everything from stability and authentication issues to random rolling disconnects.

What Penni said.  It's weird lag, too.  You go about your business and everything seems fine and then you're dead.  It's strange and annoying.  I didn't have trouble logging in, although there are queues, but once in the game was annoying.  Maybe they'll fix it someday.  Again.

I'm not that hot to play in particular, I'm just trying to satisfy the overall ennui I've had with games in general lately.  I can't find anything that really holds my attention for more than 30 minutes.  I highly doubt Wildstar will fix the situation, but the struggle, it's real.

I'm in the same boat. I would kill for a well done older style MMO, with modern QoL improvements that I can just lose myself in for a couple of hours every other day or so.

I went back in and found my engineer had been nerfed to the ground. My spell-slinger was still crap but I haven't played her in 9 months and have no idea whether they are - or were ever - viable.

Rolled a stalker and had a ball of fun. The game will be a nice drop-in seeing as I've OD'd on GW2 and WoW just bores me to hell and back.

At least it's in better shape than WAR :D

I was doing okay with TESO for a while but when I got into the higher levels I started to burn out.  I switched to FFXIV and tried to give it a serious go but...meh.  After about a week or regular playing I'm having a hard time going back to it.  It's got some good points going for it but overall it didn't really grab me; can't really articulate why exactly, just overall didn't click for me.  UI was information overload and / or I'm getting too old for these new fangled games the kids like so hard.

No word for WildStar support yet either.  Ah well.  Back to throwing money away in 10 dollar increments in DFs football.

You'll try FF14 again in several months to a year, it'll click this go and you'll have a good time for a few months, then you'll suddenly lose all interest.

At least that was me and several people I know.

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

The plateaus are much shorter these days than before. Probably my age rather than the game, but maybe a mixture of the two. Other MMOs could run the plateau out longer till the next climb and peak. Now I get tired of shit sooner and the climb and peak of the next iteration is too far away to stick it out. Before, I could pass the time with other shit, now... fuck it.

I was able to get in-game within 24 hours.  You weren't under-selling it on the lag.  Yikes.  Combo bonus - login queue.  Caveat there was a server maintenance...early last night I think, and afterwards the ingame lag was better.  Login queues still in full effect though. 

Game play-wise; too early to have much of an opinion on the revamp.  My level 41 Medic was still sitting there in his spaceship house, but I haven't logged much time with him beyond going through the dozens of system messages!!! and emails full of returned crap.  I started a new Spellslinger just to get the whole new leveling "experience" but thus far (at level 10) I can't see much difference from what I recall of the game back in 2014.  I'm going to give it a go for awhile, see how it develops.

Just found out about this one by watching my son playing it.  I'm wondering what everyone thought of it?   

Does it have a sci-fi feel or is it just WoW in sci-fi clothing?

um, wow without tab targeting in threadbare slightly sci-fi (ish) clothing that looks more cartoony the longer you play it (unlike WoW) and where every single fight is a raid boss fight where you have to keep moving to survive which sounds cool until the 200th fight and you're still just 3rd level and you find out as a melee healer that all your heal targets are too busy trying to survive by frantically moving through this psychedelic cloud of shapes and particle effects for you to ever stay close enough and pointed in the right direction to get a heal off?

To be a healer in this game requires a certain amount of finesse. And it must be said that in this case I'm using a very nonprescriptivist sense of finesse, which more means some combination of twitch autistic hyperfocus combined with masochism.
