Zero sense of accomplishment?

Am I the only one around that feels kinda let down after having downed everything on nightmare?

I feel nothing at all, I don't even feel proud and have the need to stroke my e-peen. In the other MMOs I've played over the last 12 years I would be extremely happy and proud if I got a server first but in this game it just feels unimportant and bland. The gear you get eventually when you are in a progression also feels like a let down, it just feels to easy to get good gear.

Maybe you are just slowly realizeing how pointless server firsts really are.

What's the point? He says he doesn't feel a sense of accomplishment getting a server first here. Isn't that a personal thing? How is someone else supposed to change that?

Create content that takes weeks/months to master (suffering countless wipes), making the content inaccessible to all but the top few % of a server population.

the loot for sure was a let down big let down basicly same loot everything besides new relics this new patch... lets hope in march there is a new raid thats actualy challengings.. first day and nightmare content is released its all cleared.... this game for sure is a care bear game catered to the casuals... by no means is this hard core oriented even in nightmare mode... witch is stupid. but the gear in next patch and raid hardness i hope will be NIGHTMARE not killable for months or so even weeks but not first day. first day and cleared all modes is so stupid... thats how easy all there content is

For Biowares first raid the bosses had some fun and interesting mechanics, but I expect tier 2 in March to present greater challenge.

Well..thats not very smart now is it? Why create content that only a small % of the people playing will see. What benefit do they get out of that effort?

$15 from an ultra casual is the same value as $15 from a hardcore elite player.

It will be refreshing if BioWare understands this, fixes the things that are legitimately wrong with the game, and doesn't panic when the e-peen crowd traipses onto the next game, leaving the much larger "casual" (read: devoted) fan base behind.

Every other major MMO that I'm aware of has failed at that, although the jury is still out on WoW.

It's the first tier in a brand new game. It's not going to be super challenging. That's just the nature of the beast.

Having said that, I got far more of a thrill out of killing Soa Hard Mode pre-nerf then I did from killing Soa Nightmare after they fixed it. But that's probably due to Soa Nightmare now being easier than pre-nerf Hard.

I still got a kick out of Karagga's Palace on Nightmare, but we did have all the gear required for it since we'd been farming Hard/Nightmare EV for a few weeks.

I'm really looking to the next tier of raiding providing more appropriate challenges. Nightmare KP was a step up from Nightmare EV (even though same tier), so I expect that to continue.
