    Question Fiesta or Solstice?

    I just downloaded and started playing both, so I am not too far in either but I am having a hard time deciding between the two. Fiesta is kind of cool but it just feels so much like every other mmorpg (so does solstice I guess but there is something there that draws me in a little more). I like the graphics in solstice because in a weird way they kind of remind me of Ragnarok.

    Really what I usually look for in an MMORPG is a wide range of class customization or just a lot of classes in general.
    Pretty balanced classes.
    PvP isn't that big in importance, but good late game PvP would be pretty nice.
    Decent armor and weapon customization (not as in making weapons necessarily but a lot of different looking weapons and armor to change one's character's appearance.
    A variety of quests, so I don't want nothing but collection quests (probably not gonna happen between these two games but just thought I would mention it in case anyone has any suggestions for any other MMORPGs that fit my tastes).
    Pretty bug free, Solstice has quite a few that I noticed within just 20 minutes of playing but it's new I guess.


    Yeah I am pretty Weak... For now:cool: !

    I've never played SoS, but Fiesta is okay, if you want to take it slowly. If you want a game where you can level fast and experience a lot, then it isn't that great. At the beginning, its all questing, then once you get into your 40s, it becomes a grind-fest.

    I think its a matter of graphical preference. I also like Solstice because its looks like Ragnarok Online and am practically playing it for the nostalgia factor if nothing else. Some people have said the graphics look weird, but I think it looks sharper than RO especially with the detail turned up.

    ugh I just tried SoS after reading this thread and I didn't have fun at all...
    I had fun with Fiesta more so I think I'll go with Fiesta and leave SoS just in case I feel like playing it. But truthfully if you want to play SoS, just play Ragnarok.

    FINAL VERDICT

    Ragnarok > Solstice > Fiesta

    So if you've played Ragnarok, then Solstice will seem shitty to you, go with Fiesta, if you've always wanted to try Ragnarok, then go with Sol.

    Default fiesta, fiesta, fiesta.

    Yeah, fiesta ALLLL the way. Idk something about it draws me in. You should get a little further in Fiesta and make some friends, do a few kq, get some armor....cuz then you'll love it.

    OH, and everyone there is really really nice. you shoud consider it.

    Smile fiesta

    The first time I played sos there was a glitch and the second time the glitch was still there and the third time I just gave up.

    I prefer fiesta more than solstice, but I don't know about you.

    i have to agree with all who have said that SoS is like a ragnorak rip-off, I mean first of look at it, when i played it, it brought back sweet memories of my RO days. But i (didn't) dl SOS to play RO with a different outer shell, thres no need to return, keep your RO memories pure .

    Dling fiesta right now and looks good, ill give you guys my 2cents later

    Alright the final verdict:
    Fiesta all the way!!!!! Fiesta has a more welcoming feeling the SoS does. I started playing and couldn't stop. The kingdom quests are fun and great for leveling. The shop system is great and so is the community. I will definetly be playing this alot thank to my spring break(ya is late but no biggie.) so ya play fiesta, you definetly will enjoy itmore.

    Why not play both? That's what I've been doing.

    Fiesta is great because it's more like a traditional 3D pay-to-play game. It has a lot of different things to do and I love the graphics.

    Solstice has more class customization and I like its in-game events a little more. And it's NOTHING like Ragnarok, really. Visually, sure, they're pretty similar, but SoS plays much differently.
