Whats needed in your opinion to make portable MMOs and MMORPGs more fun away from the big computers?
With the growing power and trend of the portable mobile pc market, from tablets to smartphones, to other new devices on the way,
what can be done to make portable MMOs and MMORPGs more fun and enjoyable?
Although I had the idea long before CCP, I really like the concept behind Dust 514 and EvE's cross platform interactions. They both effect each other on different systems and different point of view, which makes both game seem separated but still apart.
An Idea I believe could be fun would be to take this above idea to a new level.
A portable MMO that could be something like a RTSMMO that has direct connection to a PC 3D MMORPG. Players of the portable RTSMMO would control the monsters that the players in the MMORPG have to battle against to defend their game world.
two different platforms and two different gameplay point of views. both effect each other. this way the gameplay is always truly dynamic and never predictable like AI intelligence is. Keeps both sides on their toes.
I suggested something like this for Rift in the past when they added their Rift Mobile app. I saw the opportunity for Rift to add a cross platform way to make Dynamic Events and Invasions, really dynamic this time using player controlled monster game to battle the players in Rift.
but is something like that above ahead of its time?
what ideas you have?
