    lets hope the world does end before they manage to butcher another IP

    LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.
    I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already :)

    As much as I would like to see a UO2, after what Mythic did with WAR, I'd prefer they not bother.

    Don't think there's a future for it without Richard Garriot and Raph Koster working on it.

    If it were the original Mythic that made DAOC, sure I'd be behind it. The Mythic now, I can't....I just can't.

    Why bother making anything. Jeeez guys...

  • GrayGhost79GrayGhost79 Webster, MAPosts: 4,813Member

    No...   I want a UO2 but I want a well done UO2 that sticks to the core aspects that made the game so unique. Mythic is just a shell of its former self after EA bought and gutted it, so no thanks. 

     

    Bad Mythic, Bad...

    "Support our crappy ARPG Ultima-in-name-only game and maybe we'll get the chance to make UO2!"

    Yeah, up yours buddy. Firstly, you massacred the Warhammer IP. Secondly, you aided in massacring (to a lesser extent, admittedly) the Star Wars IP. Thirdly, you're in the act of massacring the Ultima IP...

    No. Just no. Go fuck yourselves, Mythic.

    What I'm wondering is if they want to make it because they want to redeem themselves/make a good mmo, or if they just want a project to work on so they can hold on to their jobs. Either way it's pretty ballsy of them to do this because they still have those EA shackles grasping tightly around their ankles.

    I, like many others, have lots of nostalgia for the old place, but I still feel drained from the old flamewars.

    The community can't decide on what UO is ... the secret sauce is different for everyone... but how can I support a theoretical sequel when I can't imagine getting more than handful of people to agree on any one design?

    Mythic may have screwed up Warhammer, but Garriot screwed up Tabula Rasa.  

     

    I actually think their version of Warhammer wasn't that bad.  People were expecting DAOC 2.0 and they didn't get it, so that probably caused the game to fail.

     

    I think Mythic could pull off a new Ultima.  What company would you suggest attempt it?

    That's not Mythic. Mythic is dead.

    All the talent that was a part of Mythic has been gutted by EA.

    There are now more Bioware employees in Mythic than former Mythic guys.

    Between EA and Bioware... I don't want to them to even think about touching Ultima Online 2, especially not after seeing the horrible Ultima 4 remake they're doing.

    Bioware has been working to further destroy DAoC for the last 2 years or so.

     

    EA has not once been involved in a good MMO. Every MMO they touch dies. Do NOT let this happen. They already cancelled DAoC 2 and Imperator.

    So they'll make another game that plays exactly like Warhammer, and Rift....yeah a 3rd one of these games I doubt would be a good thing.  But then again third time's the charm?

    DAoC didn't truly go down the tubes until EA bought them.

     

    It's really sad that the company behind one of the best designed MMos in the history of the genre... now has its name forever laughed at because of EA and WAR.

    There was a UO2 in development, long ago.  EA killed it, claiming it would 'compete with UO'.  But really it was a newly promoted exec wanting to make the company's bottom line look good in his first year.  

     

    The McFarlane  prototype figures looked really good though.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    DAoC is a themepark, UO is a sandbox, that's the number one reason Mythic would never be able to develop a good UO game.

    Second, it's not the same Mythic, they are Bioware 2 now.

    Third, noone but Garriot should attempt an UO 2.

    And im not even sure i would want UO 2 developed by Garriot....

    The last line should be "Go fuck yourselves, EA."

    If there was anything good in SWTOR it was because of Mythic, not EA.

    Mythic was a company that had released about... 8 I think, successful online titles, DAoC being their most popular. They were on their way to making 2 more MMOS when EA bought them.

    Ever since EA has owned them, their games have been poor. Considering EVERY MMO EA gets involved with goes south... let's use our grade school critical thinking skills to discover the common element...

    I'd hardly call DAoC a themepark. Hell, the term "themepark" rarely applies to any game that isn't a WoW clone. Just because DAoC wasn't as sandboxy as UO doesn't mean it was a "themepark". Themepark implies being led by the nose and developer imparted safety. These things were not in DAoC.

    DAoC is a themepark MMO, just like EQ & Lineage 2.

    Just because they weren't a wow clone with streamlined linear questing doesn't mean they aren't themeparks.

    By your definition, GW2 is a sandbox.....

     

    Btw im not calling DAoC casual, shallow and linear, that's what todays themeparks are, old themeparks had more freedom and depth, but they where still themeparks.
