Hello everybody. Sometime ago I've posted small SWTOR review here on mmorpg.com forums where I tried to explain my concerns about SWTOR mechanics. I used diagramms to illustrate my thoughts about MMORPG in general and about SWTOR in particular. Apparently people have appreciated this approach so I decided to do an analysis of other games too.
The bottom line is that any MMO is a set of gaming spheres in which social interaction occurs. For greater clarity, I have identified four basic areas (of course this is a very rough generalization):
So here some diagrams:
Default Good Balanced MMORPG game
Vanguard: Saga of Heroes
Of course, these schemes do not claim to ultimate truth, but it seems to me that this approach allows you to visually express your own perceptions of the gameplay. I'll be glad to see your opinions and the analysis of other games in this thread .
