@BFGesus said in This Xbone version is killing the experience for me:
I have the original Xbone model and the game runs really bad when all the graphic options are at max, so I have to turn them down like I'm running a potato PC. At these max settings, NPCs take around 10 seconds to load in the lobbies, my game freezes for around the same time when I get party invites, and the loading screens last for ages. I also refuse to pay premium for this game while I'm having to also pay the XBL sub. Two subs for one game infuriates me to no end. I would have no problem paying for the premium if I'm not having to pay for another pointless sub. But because I refuse to get premium, this causes additional problems for me such as not being able to join parties in full blocks and me falling behind in progress compared to my friends who have premium. So while they're grinding +50 SHAQs and getting 12 and 13*s, I'm over here struggling to catch up because I don't have the boosters (and a shop!) that they do.
There's also the problem with XBL itself. Sometimes I'll have a problem with a person and vent on them for doing something stupid to me like kicking me from a group because my auto chat is annoying to them or they abandon the mission with me in at at the boss because they suck at the game and get frustrated. These snowflakes get their feelings hurt and report me and I'll get a comms ban in no time. What this does is disable me from talking and typing to other people in the game and it disables me from accepting other people's invitations. XBL just sucks and it shouldn't affect how I play this game. For something else that might be related, for the past day I can't see what I'm typing and I can't perform emotes or see my auto chat. This happened after I logged off for the night and came back. I thought I got banned but I didn't get a notification. So now I can't express myself and it further impacts my enjoyment with the game.
I have a PC easily capable of running this game in 4k at 60+ fps. It just sucks that for the next 2 or so months that this is how my experience with the game is going to be, unless I pay another $300 for an Xbone X. Even though MS helped segac get this game over here 8 years later, they really picked the wrong platform to get this party started.
well i'm sad for ya man but if you are on Ship 1 i'd be down to help out and do AQ's or what ever ya need. I already hit max level onall classes for one character so i'm in dire-straights waiting for updates to our serve so i'd be down to help. My group is normally 3 so a 4th would be welcomed.
