Unblogged Wisdom Checks: Bright or Cloudy Year Ahead for Neverwinter?

The start of a new year is often the time to look back at what happened during the past 12 months. That’s what we deliver in our yearly review series, but for this week’s poll we’d like you to do the opposite and think about your expectations for Neverwinter in 2019. Do you like the general direction and believe the game can take the next step this year? Or are we headed in the opposite direction and will experience a noticeable decline?

Of course this has a lot to do with how you feel about the state of the game right now. In case you think the latest “Heart of Fire” mod was a success, then it’s easier to be optimistic. But if the whole new Workshop system and K-Team stuff isn’t your cup of tea, you might not be too thrilled of what’s ahead. And it obviously also has a lot to do with whether or not you’re trusting Cryptic and PWE to make the right decisions overall.

So with that little preface out of the way, what are your expectations for 2019?

Bright or Cloudy Year Ahead for Neverwinter?

  • Currently I'm leaning towards a continued decline. Management just doesn't have the resources or courage to get Neverwinter onto the next level. (33%, 290 Votes)
  • Not completely convinced yet, but the game definitely has the potential for upside. (21%, 183 Votes)
  • Neverwinter will be just fine. Just don't expect the reinvention of the MMORPG wheel... (21%, 183 Votes)
  • I'm stoked for 2019! It's going to be a great year for the game! (15%, 129 Votes)
  • The future doesn't look bright at all. My money is on the game getting shut down! (12%, 104 Votes)

    Aging visuals (not moving)
    Rotting game play (started as a mess and still not able to balance mechanics)
    Stupid strategical management for short/mid/long term (“new” same old campain every mod to painfully grind, pvp is shitty, forge is worst, RP is ignored)
    Poor financial strategy (lockbox, …)
    Shitty politics/communication

    Let’s be honest, the game will barely survive for some years due to console ‘niche’ and players not wanting to let go (munchausen syndrome) ; but it’s core is already void of meaning (dead) since years.

    Game will continue its decline. Decline has been gaining steam since Mod 10. Management must be playing a huge shell game to stay afloat financially- but sooner or later this house of cards is going to crash. Now the normal Choads like Maniac and others point to Steam charts and other BS inflated numbers and say “game is healthier than ever!”, lol. That’s all B.S., play this game for a bit and you’ll see that the overall buisness strategy is “turn and burn”. Problem is they’ve already burned a huge player base.
    People are tired of the gambling/lockbox mechanic, the game engine is old/outdated, and Cryptic/PWE is well known for being a shit bag company with no business ethics. Couple these issues with Neverwinter’s past failed MODs, heavily censored forums at Reddit and ARC, inability and unwillingness to actually address class balance, lack of community (player) involvement and you can see how this game is doomed to fail.
    Now, the window lickers are all stating the Mod 16 will be “Amazing” lolz. I hope so. But given their track record I just don’t see how. Shit, they can’t seem to keep Game Developers on staff and they have a Community Manager that does? I’m not sure what the fuck she does, and neither does anybody else? And they’re going to release an “Amazing” MoD, hahahahahaha, get the fuck out of here!

    MOD 15 is pure trash, I’m not joking I’ve been playing for years (I have an 18k+ main char and other 15k+ chars) and I was expecting something different other than a complete fucking destruction of professions I worked on and doing a god damn Explore the basement once every hour like 20 times to advance in this god awful campaign… what the fuck were they thinking??? This is hands down the worst one of all time! Bigger disaster than the Level 70 elemental evil campaign… at least we had something to do!

    I agree with Tits McGee, Mod15 was god awful. Some like the new professions but the vast majority base loath it. I work in an office and deal with spreadsheets and data all day, the last thing I want to have to do is do “work” to game professions. And its more of the random chance BS garbage!!! Why do devs think we enjoy that? I have basically stopped doing professions, I keep trying because I know I can gen some AD out of it but I just despise it so much and this is suppose to be something I do for fun.

    AI, HoF: The funny thing is I follow the podcasts and enjoy their live play shows. This just does not inject well into the look and feel of Neverwinter MMO. And we already have the Day of the Dungeon Master which is more slapstick. But at least you do not grow to absolutely HATE the NPCs in that setting, the AI crew are just obnoxious and the quests are mind numbingly repeated. Then they put a restriction on getting the quests while having a restriction on the weekly amount of acorns THAT DOES NOT MATCH UP! Plus this is suppose to advance with a new PC but you can level a PC to 70 in a week while this whole campaign is artificially stretched out for over a month. I mean just pure garbage campaign mechanics.

    Then there is the class “balancing” that turned into a slaughter for TRs (not even my main but ouch!). And the one thing that fans have asked over and over and over and over are new classes and we STILL are not getting them.

    Then changes to salvage which reduces the value of hunts and other grinds and just makes 95% of the gear rewards handed out as just junk only good for a few RP.

    problem with neverwinter currently is the make and then throw away function there isn’t any new advance they make gear for a certain module then that gear is obsilete with in next module (meaning 4 months) so basicly you only run with same gear for 3 months or even less
    they need to make advancement toward new stuff using old gear too like with professions we can use different rings to combine stats and bonus etc like there is many people that want to get for exemple 2% of the dmg bonus from shadowstalker but also want other stats for exemple than what they give there isn’t realyl a reason to make everything obsolete and build everything again into a non ending cycle
    just make us be able to advance keeping our old progress because the way this game is right now being old player or new has no difference because each mod has a different set to get and your old acheivements don’t even matter
    this IN MY PERSONAL OPINION is not healthy for an mmo because new players always want to have that sense of acheivement to get to some days and old players like to have something that others maybe don’t for now
    the game has potential because of how good the combat system is and it’s loyal fan base specially people like uncencored so i don’t mention any names
    over the couple of years these blogs have been arround i started to feel that uncencored is becoming more of a title than it is someones own blog it’s like a logo of what the players who really fight for the game to get better are wearing
    i have hope that if the community dosn’t let log the devs and community will some day be able to sit at one table and find a middle path
    the community manager has to change probably for this to happen and not the persona is what i mean but rather the way it’s beign moderated the official forums need an overhaul and moderators need to be stripped of power like manicgypsy if they abuse it
    having a game looking shiny on outside but shitty on inside isn’t healthy and sooner or later players will find out the lies official stuff tell you and that will result in not only the game downfall but also the company’s name having dirt on it.

    i rest my case for now and sorry for the long speech but simply put i care for the game and the feelings i have put into it me and many other people and the friends i met along the way thaty i really still play the game for thier sake and not only mine <3

    Peace Out
