I am sorry, but 15 minutes in, and this is an unbelievably distracting and annoying visual mechanic to play with. It does not add to the immersion. It does not add any enjoyment to the game whatsoever for me and, I am sure, many other people who play.
And it can be a health issue too as it could trigger a pretty bad headache for some people. For me, it makes the game unplayable because I’ll get a headache after doing it.
I am sure this issue has been raised before, so it is obvious that Funcom has decided to plant their heels and totally disregard that this is a big problem for their customers.
I am just wondering why they are this way though? I can’t play this game unless I get a mod and play on an unofficial server, and those are at the mercy of whoever is paying for them, and who knows when they’ll decide they don’t want to do so anymore. Also they often come with mods and settings I don’t want to play with, I just want the vanilla experience minus the horrible screenshake. I will not buy a server for myself just because of this issue, I have already paid for the game. I also don’t want to play singleplayer because a big part of the reason why I bought the game was because I wanted to play with a bunch of people.
So I’ll be getting a refund on steam. Too bad, even for the very small amount of time I played, I had a lot of fun and was excited for what was to come.
