they really need to remove that Kaon undersiege game play with high res textures. it is just making the issue worse.

I'm still toying about what to do regarding my sub for the game. On one side I want to give BW the benefit of the doubt in that they'll get this issue resolved but on the other I'm not confidant that they can do so as a result of decisions taken very early on in the development process.

The fact is; every time I see my character outside of a cutscene I say to myself "what were they thinking?". We've had MMOs with high-res textures for several years now, the current character textures are below what even wow is offering these days, and for a new release MMO that's not really acceptable.

This has fallen to the third page? That's not good. [Removed comment about being unable to search the forums, because apparently you can] and this affects everyone to a degree this should probably be stickied, but I know they won't sticky bad publicity.

I think I'm down to 4 days now. I want to like this game -- hell, I do like this game, but I simply can't justify handing money over to people this inept, people that then have the stones to lie about the whole ordeal, attempt to cover it up, and insist that this is the best the MMO genre can offer.

I could feel decent about giving them my money if they come out and say "high resolution (or cutscene) textures are among our top priorities, and we will implement them as soon as we can" but they can't even give that. Instead we get, "Oh, you caught us with our pants down and our hideous junk (this game's graphics) flapping in the breeze, we'll work on increasing the fidelity for you" when in reality they could reduce the texture compression by 1% and say they delivered as promised.

Given the way this was already handled, I won't accept placation in the form of weasel words that guarantee nothing.

WoW released in, what, 2004? This is 2012, TOR released in the last handful of days of 2011.

LOTRO did release with super-high resolution textures. In fact, they had at least 4 settings: Low, Medium, High, Ultra. You had to check a box in the launcher to even download the Ultra textures, and at the time of release they killed just about any computer. But, as hardware got better, more and more people could turn that setting on. LOTRO's graphics destroy what is available in TOR, and they have since day1 of LOTRO.

As others have said, in many cases the cutscene textures in TOR aren't fantastic by today's standards, they're merely acceptable.

And they didn't say they are working on giving us cutscene textures. They are working on "improving graphical fidelity" which could mean bloody anything.
