World of Warcraft Achievement System Rumored 86

Posted by ScuttleMonkey
from the one-more-reason-to-avoid-the-daylight dept.
Kotaku has the merest hint of a rumor about a possible achievement system coming with Blizzard's Wrath of the Lich King expansion. "You know what World of Warcraft players really need? Another reason not to get up out of their chair, and Blizzard might be giving that to them in the form of in-game achievements in the next expansion, Wrath of the Lich King. According to DeathKnight.info, players in the Wrath of the Lich King alpha can type /achievement to bring up a screen like the one above, which shows various achievements that can be performed for points, which will more than likely then go towards buying gear and such."

        That's true and I agree with you (I've argued the same point on slashdot before--who cares if people have fun doing it, it's up to them)

        but I think the GP is referring more generally to the feeling of disillusionment/ennui? many people seem to feel after falling head over heels into WoW. I played soon after the game came out, and was very addicted. I then stopped and it was like ... crap, what I was doing, I could have done X,Y,Z etc instead. Of course I reactivated my account 2 years later, played for a couple months, and felt the same thing again, so I obviously didn't learn my lesson :-P

        I've heard similar reactions from others.
        • I am a fan of customization and choices. When you pick a class in WoW, you get at most 3 choices on how you want to play that class. There are slight variations on the 3 main types, but pretty much you will get pigeon holed into one of the roles.

          That's why I have enjoyed games of the hack-and-slash style a lot more, ALA Diablo series and most recently Titan Quest (I love TQ). You get to pick a play style from caster, melee, or hybrid, because that's as specific as you can get while still being able to tal

        If I build a model plane, I can put it up on my mantle, gift it to someone, and take the skills I developed building that and put it towards other items requiring fine motor skills and and a sense of art and history.

        I think someone mentioned in a post regarding WOW on a different Slashdot thread that raiding as part of an established group taught them how to manage time, coordinate with other people, and build leadership skills.

        Pretty much, you get out of a hobby what you put into it. If it's just a way of killing time, then all you're going to get out of it is a lot of dead time. If your reason to play is the social dynamics (I knew people who played because their friends had moved away, and it was the regular "meetup"), then I think the test would be if these social networks survive beyond the game.

        With that said, I detest games that require you to stay on the treadmill to "keep up". At least when I do work I hate during normal working hours, I get paid...

          The bleeding obvious answer is: so don't stay on the treadmill. Go do whatever keeps you entertained, when it keeps you entertained.

          I'm somewhat surprised how many people seem to, well, think they have some kind of _duty_ to achieve some level, get some item, etc. Or in some pathological cases think they somehow prove their penis size by how many level 70's they have and with what gear. So they grind and work and miss the whole point of having fun and/or making friends.

          The game between levels 1 and 69 is _the_ meat of the game. That's the zones you're supposed to explore, enemies you're supposed to test yourself against, the quests and bits of story you're supposed to discover, etc. That's the actual game. It's some hundreds of hours worth of content.

          And it sorta amuses me to see some people try to skip the actual game, or even use some bot to skip it for them, just so they too can then willy-wave about having a level 70. And then get stuck in an endgame grind which is no more than a repetitive chore for people who've finished the actual game and don't know when to quit.

          It's akin to trying to skip most of the LOTR trilogy, just to end up watching the last 5 minutes in a loop, for months.

          So basically, then just don't stay on a treadmill. Realize that levels and gear are there just

          A) to give you some sense of making progress,

          B) so you can practice your new abilities and tactics one at a time, instead of dumping 60 icons upon you from the start, and putting you in front of Kil'jaeden before you even know what they all do, and

          C) to gently guide you about in which order you're supposed to go through the story and quests. Among other thing _because_ that's the actual game, some hundreds of hours and thousands of quests, which you're supposed to play and experience. Not just click an "I win!!!" button and be over with it.

          But there is no obligation to keep up with anyone or anything. There is no par time that you have to beat. And it's not some shameful failure to take things at your own pace, do the things you feel like doing, and generally just enjoy the game.

          In other words, the game is about and consists of the road, not just the destination.

          And if you think that that road, in fact the game itself, is just a treadmill, well, you can just quit it now. Because it doesn't get any better. Once you're done with that "treadmill", there is no grand reward waiting for you, and no "meat of the game" that begins at level 70. What happens when that "treadmill" finally ends, is that it spits you right into the tarpit of a repetitive and pointless grind that's there just do give you something to do while you wait for the next segment (i.e., expansion pack) of the actual game.
          • I totally agree with you on just about every point. The problem for me is that some of the mid games stories aren't very compelling. (Stuff in the 30's and 40's bracket can be pretty mundane.)

            In addition there has to be a better way to tell a story then "grab 30 boar pelts" off an animal that has a 20% drop rate. Why make me grind like that in hundreds of quests? It's not entertaining for me.

            I personally think there is a fundamental flaw in the game play of these games.

        That's okay, Turbine has cribbed a few features from WoW too. e.g., in their first MMO, Asheron's Call, they recently introduced a quest that's virtually indistinguishable from the various WoW deck quests (deck of warlords, deck of portals, etc. etc.). Hell, the whole LOTR UI looks a lot more like WoW than it does Turbine's previous games...

        I have never played WOW, but my housemate is a huge WOW addict who will regularly spend his entire weekend playing it. And I mean the entire weekend. Toilet and food breaks, but nothing else.

        But the interesting thing is that he seems to derive almost no enjoyment from playing it. All he ever seems to do is complain constantly. "Oh for fucks sake, I've got to kill $x of $y!". "I've been doing this for an hour!". "Now I've got to go there!". Non-stop whining. The only positive things he ever says about his WOW playing are things like "I have X gold", or "I went up X levels this weekend".

        Now as I said, I'm not a WOW player, or an MMORPG player at all, so I expect a lot of them are going to reply and tell me how wrong I am, but here's my theory. I think that some WOW players, like my house mate, do not actually enjoy playing the game. They enjoy the sense of achievement they get from having 70 levels and a shitload of virtual gold. The hours of grind required to get there are simply the price they have to pay to get that. That's why you hear so many players complaining about the "timesink". They aren't having fun. They just have to slog through it to pick up the next level.

        Before you all start screaming at me, I'm not saying all MMO players are like this, just that I've noticed some are.

      If it sucks so much, why did you keep playing for a couple of YEARS?!

    I heard that in the upcoming sequel to WoW you will get to control a character who plays WoW, it's called World of World of Warcraft. Here's the announcement:

    This is just another resource you grind for in the game, from Gold to Honor to Arena Points and Arena Rating to Tokens in instance drops. I think any innovation would have to be in the rewards, like introducing a Traits or Perks system like in Fallout. More raid gear equivalents as a reward would be redundant... you can get that simply by endless losing in Battlegrounds.

    From the attention list though, it looks like they're focusing on casual players... "Super Quest Dude", various quest chains, etc. That's a welcome addition for those of us that don't have endless hours to play every day.
    • Somehow I get the feeling that, a short time after the expansion comes out, it will be just like it is now. Every time I step into a PvP event, I'll be facing a team of basement-dwellers that can (somehow) afford to grind rep/honor/arena points/badges 20 hours a day, so they're wearing the best possible gear in the game. Every time I'm out trying to quest, similar people with winning personalities will take great pleasure in blasting the shit out of me with their tier-whatever or uber-gladiator gear, with

        You should be playing on a non-PvP server then.
  • 100% completionists among us, this is one reason why I absolutely have to stay away from WotLK. ..if it's true that is. Even so, this feels like a poor attempt at adding content to make the game feel like less of a grind.

      Actually, it looked like it would add even more grind to the game. It was all "Do random mundane task X million times".

      There are enjoyable aspects to WoW, but in my experience, the farther along you get, the more boring it gets. I've been playing for about 2 years now, and haven't even got one char to 70. In fact, my account is currently inactive, and I've not decided if I'll pay it up again. I'm halfway through lvl 65 and just that half of a level has taken me over 4 months. There are things I'm looki

    - Talked about something not WoW-related

    These achievements are also rumoured to be coming to the D&D 4th Edition.

    - Survivor title (reaching level 20 without dying)
    - Lucky/Unlucky (related to random events like lottery or keeping/losing lockpick kits)
    - Protector (having done all the "cooperative missions" (like the instances) with their bonus
    - Drunk title (for being drunk more than x minutes)

  • Actually I don't have a witty comment. I am going to try to get all of these achievements.
  • Personally, I don't get why spending 100 hours fighting combats that prove nothing other than your ability to log on when the Alliance is low on twinks and the Horde is strong makes anyone feel they've accomplished anything.

    It's like those useless combat awards I got in the Army - half are for things that anyone can do ...

    First and foremost, this is a rumor. As the FA suggests, it could be a doctored screen since "PvP" is listed twice and having a title like "Quest Dude" is not in keeping with Blizzard's style.

    Even if it does get implemented, I don't see this as a system for "grinding." I also play LotRO on those rare occasions when I don't feel like playing WoW. Yes, this appears to be exactly like the Deeds system. In LotRO those are not achievements you intentionally pursue; they're objectives that you just happen to complete while you're playing, or you might complete most of them and discover "If I visit that one last farm, I'll get X." I'd see this having the same effect in WoW. I doubt the rewards for such easily achievable tasks would be great either, just like in LotRO. They're beneficial, but they're not game altering or anything that you cannot play without.

    Regardless, we'll keep playing with or without any rewards because playing the game and having a good time is the reward.
