    Default Massively on neverwinter/DDO

    Putting this here in off-topic just to be safe:

    Interesting comparison -- I'm looking forward to trying Neverwinter, especially since I've soured on DDO a bit.

    Default Got to level 18

    Last open weekend Got to 18 and 4k from 19 in Neverwinter.
    That took all of 10 hours.
    In those 10 hours I only died twice.
    Neverwinter is more Wow like than DDO like.
    Me I will be playing both.
    One advantage I saw in Neverwinter was no noticeable memory leak.
    I loved the glittering trail you can make appear to follow.
    Some of the In town stuff looks better in Neverwinter.
    As for the Characters DDO puts Neverwinter to shame.
    That is in creation and looks.
    I much prefer the DDO combat over the Neverwinter Combat.
    I did buy the middle founders pack.
    For me Neverwinter will be a game I go to when I want to escape from DDO a bit.
    I think there are enough players to keep both games going for some time.
    I would Rate Neverwinter a Solid 5 and DDO a light 7 on a ten scale.
    Not all who wander are lost. I am not lost, I am just exploring.

    Seems like a fairly written article.

    NWO has a long way to go before it hits the same spot as DDO in my eyes

    altho with the direction DDO is going, who knows how long until it will brutally murder its strong character build options and sink to the lowest denomination of games
    PS: Greensteel RUINED the game! and you all know it!
    less buffing, more nerfing!!!
    to make it easier for those of you that wants to avoid me in game, all my characters are in "Bladesworn Mercenaries"

    Pretty fair, my only comment would be nwo's rooting prevents the active combat system from feeling seemless and creates some issues with mechanics imo.

    It does seem like a fairly written article. +1 for the excellent journalism Justin Olivetti.

    I am interested in trying out NWO. However, I will be a F2P only gamer over there. I wanted to try out the beta, but I wont pay for a Beta. If I had another way in I might try it out. I signed up already.

    I'm not a FR fan, and I have no interest in giving development dollars to a FR only game. I'm a little disappointed in Turbines move to the FR, but with NWO on the horizon I can understand why.

    What we have is a situation where the "best" option is generally so much ahead that any other option will be foolish. it's still reversible if Turbine wants it to be.

    Awesome! So far it seems like there are no strings past having to register with the web site. Not that its a huge deal.
