    I come here to entertain @Gdemami, he lols at almost everything I say. 

    I am also @Kyleran's groupie. Not sure how much longer he is going to be with us though, must start looking around or otherwise I'd end up with @DMKano or something.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Nothing to do with this site. Everything to do with the march of technology. Sites like mmorpg.com brought havoc and destruction to the circulation of gaming magazines. Now the wheel turns and the ease with which we can search coupled with the likes of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter is grinding them down. Finding information on a game is easy. So visitor numbers fall meaning = less revenue = less staff = less articles = less visitors. Rinse, repeat.

    Pantheon sucks.


    And it has a cash shop.

    It's not about the site being bad or anything I read the news from time to time, but the forums are the same ol same ol, It's the same people saying this and then It's the same people counter argument on the topic, been going on for years, so boring reading the forums these days.

    I guess everything has already been talked about so its the battle of the words that matters.



    I'll cover everything in a nice easy package.


    MMOs are and have been in a sharp decline because of cost, greed and profit margin.  Add that mmo's are extremely hard to make and time consuming for investors even for the reputable ones.  Lets also add the public unrelenting and unrealistic demand for maximum graphics puts developers in an bad spot of take focus away from content.


    Sooooooo what we have is a Western stand still....... This leaves only Asian grinders with cash shops as the only option.  Asian grinders used to be fill in games where people would play between popular mmo's.


    Asian grinders used to be the joke and no one ever took them seriously, now their the norm. Hay, lets all play 9 Dragons Online !



    As far as us as posters, were die-hards that will not let go, with hopes someone will pay attention and give us our mmo's back :)

    You're going to die waiting so good luck with that. 

    Maybe if you click your heels together three times and say, "There's no place like MMO" over and over while wearing your extra thick rose-colored glasses, the Lord of the Unicorns and Rainbows will grant your wish.

    Oh wait, that's pretty much the essence of EVERY nostalgia-laden sad-sack lamentation thread on these forums.

    Nevermind.

    With such a bitter outlook, no wonder Pantheon's existence enrages you so.

    Actually the rage you and Nan have for anyone who disagrees with you about Pantheon is what I enjoy. Great entertainment. Keep it up.

    Reminds me of my kids when they were young and didn't get what they wanted.

    Give the Lord of Unicorns and Rainbows my regards.

    I haven't visited mmorpg.com in over a month. I expected there to be...even minimal new content about MMOs. But there's nothing. Literally nothing new about the MMO scene.

    real mmorpgs are rare these days. they could stop this game site. or they can go with the time and do everything about online games. its also a business decision.

    i read here occassionally. i guess i am here since 2004 reading. 

    its the situation about mmorpgs....

    To be a realist instead of a blithering, incoherent fanboy. Yes. Absolutely!

    Thanks for asking.

    The overall mood of the site changed for me.  For many years a lot of people, especially the regular posters, were very friendly and easy going.  Then one by one they started getting pretty chilly, and then downright hostile.

    I posted something a week or two ago and received a downright hostile response from someone who I used to think was one of the cool guys around here.  There's simply not enough going on in the MMO space to hang out with people who have completely lost their chill.

    This rage exists only in your mind. You may consider seeking help about projection.

    Are you the guy that used to tell everyone about how great FFXIV ver. 1.0 was and how great 2.0 will be?
