I'm an old fox when it comes to MMOs, been playing everything with a sub since UO and tons of muds. And the beginning of MMOs was magically just because it was new, cool and awesome. But lately I've been starting to find it bland and boring. No innovation, same tracks from game to game. I've been trying to understand what it is that I don't like about the current themepark or the occasional half decent sandbox and I think I got it. I don't want games to be fair.
I hate it that a powerful sorcerer should be beaten by a warrior, I don't like that an Giant assassin should be as good as a Gnome assassin or that a Human archer should be as sharp eyed as a Wood Elf.
I want it to be unfair. I would like to see a powerful mage just woop the asses of two warriors running against him. It would create immersion on a whole new level. Other things would of course have to change too, it can't be as easy becoming a powerful mage, maybe you have to find a book of spells thats extremly hard to find, maybe it's even the only one of its kind. Maybe you will become hunted by a large group of other players who also want that book.
I want it possible for a ranger to find a magical bow that could pierce any protective spell, a paladin who could call upon his gods in one death defying moment, an assassin who could sneak past anyone with her very rare cloak of invisibility.
But I realise that this is a dream, an almost impossible dream. What do you think, could this ever become a reality? Where the lines between a good fantasy book and a fantasy MMO starts to fade, and you start to feel that feeling you had when you first logged in to DAoC. That feeling of awe.
