2013 = (present) trying to figure out how to enjoy Path of Exile or quit MMO's in general
Between 2001-2013 I've also tested countless F2P MMORPG's, but only spent $40 on 2 worthy ones ($20 each)
Anyone can compete with that? If you notice a pattern, despite MMO's improving graphically, I've spent $ on new MMORPG's in the 1st 4 years almost as equal as in the last 8+ years. There are also far more MMORPG's to choose with improved graphics. How ironic...
P.S: $ was never an issue for not buying/playing anything that came along, but my standards were. I will gladly post threads like these occasionally to show the community the definition of a hardcore MMORPG player, cuz the playerbase in general is clearly responsible for the direction of this genre.
I've said it before and I'll say it again if dozen of mini companies out there merged rather than releasing mini MMORPG's over the last 6-8 years, they would be making some profit out of me, which is better than none at all.
