Here is the latest interview of Matt Firor.
The more this guy talks the more I think he has no clue.
Here is an extract of the interview:
- Quote 1: "We just want to make a good game and let people who want to play it, play it. It is an online game. MMO is a tired expression. It is an online RPG and we designed it to be a great game."
SWTOR is an Online RPG, TSW is an Online RPG, Diablo 3 is an online RPG...............sure you want to look at that kind of model Matt?
MMO is not a tired expression, it's developers with zero ideas who make Online RPGs instead of MMOs to blame for MMOs loss of meaning.
-Quote 2: "All fears have been erased after the success of Skyrim. It just shows that the IP, fantasy or not, is giant and very popular. It resonates with a lot of people in a lot of different parts of the world. It is perfect for an MMO, so I am not worried about that at all. "
So that's why you decided to make a TES MMO which is nothing like Skyrim and more like WoW (actually SWTOR should be more fitting)?
Skirym sold 10 million copies, are you sure you want to risk alienating a possible pool of 10 millions players by making something that plays more like SWTOR than Skyrim?
I can't see the logic. Really, it doesn't make any sense.
-Quote 3: "Yep, if you don't listen to your community then you end up paying the price eventually. That's why we have giant betas so we can come across those problems and fix them. "
Again, the community has been clear in saying they do not want a WOW with a TES badge on it.
Also WoW players don't want to play another WoW with a different twist.
So this game is not for the 10 Million Skirym fans, and is not for the 10 Million WoW players............who is it the target audiance then?
Players gave already the thumbs down to your vision, still you keep pretending everything is perfectly fine..........of course like any other developer of the latest failed MMORPGs. Nothing new there.
The more I read about it, the more this game looks like is going to be the biggest car crash of the decade.
