    What MMORPG alias are you talking about? I only post as me.

    Game developers are just human beings who happen to make games for a living.

    ( Please enjoy the irony and sarcasm. )

    The only way a community is gonna get the game they want is to make it themselves.  I applaud any independent producer, who attempts to go it his own in this industry.

    At least we know Derek's MMORPG.com alias now.

    hahaha, You thought I was Derek Smart?

    Pardon any spelling errors

    Yeah - that never gets old around here apparently.

    and here I always thought, "Speak of the devil and he doth appear" was just medieval superstition.

    'Sandbox MMO' is a PTSD trigger word for anyone who has the experience to know that anonymous players invariably use a 'sandbox' in the same manner a housecat does.

    No game is more fun than the one you can't play, and no game is more boring than one which you've become familiar.

    and here I always thought, "People on the intarweb already had enough brain cells to differentiate fact from fiction from urban legend. Oh - and that they actually knew what Google Alerts actually did"

    I guess I was wrong.

    Oh shit no way, it actually happens. That is somewhat eerie.

    Yes, well, there really isn't any reason I can think of that people using the internet would be universally aware of some arcane service by Google.

    You continually state you don't give a shit what people say about you, yet you use google alerts to keep up on what people are saying about you?

    -Letting Derek Smart work on your game is like letting Osama bin Laden work in the White House. Something will burn.-

    It's only so he can make sure they know that he doesn't care. His lack of caring is important to him.

    Ignorance is never - ever - an excuse.

    That's hilarious reasoning. Quick, Smart:

    What is the most popular method of populating K-space and why?

    Who reformed the Spartan constitution?

    What is the mechanism of action of monoamine oxidase inhibitors?

    Which gate does Aeneas depart the underworld through?

    What is the joint at midline in the pelvis?

    According to De Bello Gallico, what turned the tide of Gaius Julius Caesar's beach landing in the first invasion of Britain?

    What bone is the last to finish development in humans?

    What Christian Church Father is famous for discussing the "divine darkness"?

    What secondary structure is responsible for voltage gating in certain ion channels?

    What is Camillo Golgi notable for?

    What is Hahn Spin Echo?

    What were Dumnorix's last words?

    What priesthood did Marcus Antonius hold circa 49 B.C.?

    Who reformed the Athenian constitution?

     



    "Ignorance is never - ever - an excuse", so I'm confident you can answer all of these correctly without using reference materials?

    Or maybe you are just wrong and ignorance is reasonable when there is no plausible reason for someone to know a particular random fact.

    Just a reminder that now that you have Smart's attention, you can either

     

    take the tried and true route of provoking him, getting a reaction and then saying "See! He's a meanie!"

    ooooorrrrr

    use this opportunity to constructively engage him in conversation.

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    Hm? I would appear to be going with the latter. I'm hardly being provocative. He said something, I agreed with him, he made a silly remark, I pointed out how it was silly. image

    People complain about derek smart first game but it was released before it was finished, without derek smart consent. So the first game is not a game.

     

    Another thing, I dont know, but sounds like that after that  (releasing the game without telling him), I think that, derek smart got too scary of spending too much time developing a game and made quicker releases.  I think that some of the problems with his newer games came because of that.

    In my opinion he should spend more time developing his games, to make them reach their full potential.

     

    Anyway, this online game was a good idea, he will be able to focus more on bug-fixes and on adding stuff, because the game will always be upgrading. Also people will be able to complain as they play the game and because this is a mmo,  derek will be able to fix some stuff while they are complaining. Instead of having to wait for new game releases.

     

    I think more developers should be like derek, releasing stuff he want, to the userbase he want, without caring about the carebears. There is a market to hardcore games.
