Played the multiplayer beta, loved it and got the CE because of it. But just like the beta it maxes out at Lvl 30? That's pretty lame IMO. Kinda regret getting the CE bc the special armor sets are actually weak and like the others they max out at rank 3. Another issue I have is unbalanced matchmaking. However you would think that the higher the level, the less likely you will be killed by lower level opponents but that is not the case.
I hope a huge patch upgrades this and a provides better multiplayer experience that emphasizes on the hours spent on leveling up rather than providing pretty but worthless weapons and armor to use ... heck maybe even put in a few quests like Diablo because so far I'm starting to get bored and its only Day 2. I know its not supposed to be like WOW, Diablo, or a MOBA but the multiplayer lacks depth in relation to gaining experience levels. Based on what I've read in the past, this GOW was supposed to focus on multiplayer but it falls short greatly (so far at least).
What do you guys think of the multiplayer so far?
I think no matter what santa do, fans will not all satisfy.
Some like leveling up and become stronger, but others want the game to be skill based (be able to kill high levels when they are level 1).
We're working on ehancing advancement mechanisms, especially for our core players.
Please bare with us, we've poured every last ounce of effort into what you guys see in the shipped game, and in addition to fixing/tuning/polishing that stuff, now we finally have time to start creating another, higher tier of weapons/advanced play.
We appreciate the feedback/support!
Please feel free to recommend weapon idaes, ability ideas, and any criticism/critique you guys have with existing stuff. The beta was HUGE for us, and hopefully feedback from the live game will be even better!
@techlisen31 thanks for the update. Its good to know that developers are listening to gamers. It's just that right now, its become very stagnant to me. When I played the Beta it really seemed like the multiplayer had great potential and I hope it reaches to that point in the near future.
Rumba_Lumba made some really good points, all of which I thought would be in the multiplayer right now.
To add to what he suggested, I would really nerd out over obtaining certain armor sets/weapons/etc. that could only be used in Trial of the Gods or a Co-Op or a 4v4 Quest. Oh and what about the "Assists" for Kills. Shouldn't there be a category where it would be counted towards Favor?
