Quote of the Day: Play together

“Wildstar uses two interesting systems to allow people to play together. Mentoring isn’t new, as GW2 has this as well. You can lower your level to play with friends. Unlike GW2′s automatic downleveling, it’s a toggle. Rallying will adjust everyone’s level to be the max for an area. In a dungeon this means everyone entering it will be the max level for this dungeon, so e.g. level 20 for Stormtalon’s Lair. This also affects people who haven’t reached this level yet. You’re level 17 but want to do Stormtalon’s Lair already? No problem, your stats will scale up. Being able to play with friends is a cool thing. I like.”

    Seems like a Good Idea to me. It will be interesting to see how it plays in the wild.

    Welcome to 2004, brother. City of Heroes welcomes you with open arms. (Or would, if it were still running.) ^_^

    This truly should have become a feature of every MMORPG released in the last decade.

    Agreed. I first saw mentoring in EQ2 many years ago (I’ve not played it for more than 3 years…) – can’t understand why it’s not in more games

    Well GW2 does have upscaling for WvW but any decently geared level 80 crushes them like they were level 20. It would be great to see upscaling in all mmo’s but there is always that gap in skill/gear that makes it not really work in the long run.
