So I was just downstairs, making dinner when I had an idea about making a thread where everyone could post about features that they would like to have in mmorpgs - whether they have already been implemented in one before or not. Maybe, who knows, one day some developer will stumble upon this thread and perhaps they'll stop making and implementing all the same features in every MMO again and again and actually think of something unique and slightly different that is actually fun.
So I thought, why don't more MMORPGs have a weather system, or a day and night cycle? Or even better, addtionally to all that, a season cycle. Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. And it should be dynamic and not static ie. some snow maps and some normal maps.
And I was thinking, cause I'm watching SAO too, wouldn't it be cool if there were MMO's that would grant unique skills depending on your performance within the game? Like, if you are the player with the most attack speed in the game, you will gain a unique passive skill that will allow you to dual wield weapons. (SAO reference).
Or how Lineage II and RF Online do it, if you are one of the best (of your race [RFO] or your class [L2], you will gain a special rank and aura to show off your status to everyone. That too, will enhace competition and give people something to work for and look forward to.
What about you?
