From my experience and research... MMOs are not what people want, really. PvPers want competitive games. PvEers are puzzle collectors and achievers, playing what is a competitive game only if you have enough time, beat the PvE (go to the last PvE puzzle to recieve your big bang sword). Arena in MMOs can just be one game without the puzzles. Just pure competitive game.
So why are there still MMOs? Anyone got an answer to that? Because I am really bored with MMOs right now and I think I'm going back to playing single player games and competitive matches.
And free to play MMOs, thats just to show off whos rich and don't care about spending money on a cash shop to recieve benefits or cosmetics.
Wake up people. MMOs need not be like this. Sandbox mmos at it's current state is a failure. Just admit it, or I think you are living in la la land. Sandbox mmo needs to be even MORE social than themepark ones. We need to be able to build towns in a 500 man effort. We need to get sick, help sickness, hidden discoveries. And sandbox is not fast... it needs to be peeled carefully. Or you just made it a themepark game again with content patches that is in DEV control and not Player control.
