Games. I call them games because most are not mmos. People will argue the definition of what an mmo is, I DON'T CARE ABOUT THIS ARGUEMENT.....We now have two styles :
Community style ( mmo )
- Open world, no dungeon finders, free to do what you like, no mega servers or phasing, most of all hard where you need others. After all where are these people asking for easy ?......Are moms really calling Blizzard saying their 5 year old would like easy ?. Come on developers are making this crap up to make you rush to the next expantion....were sheep believing this. It's all about marketing.
Games you play with others around you ( non-mmo )
- Zoned, carrot on a stick, going from one quest hub to the next, follow a leaner path, smart servers that are not smart for community building. Instant fun videoing.
Here is where I disagree with 90% of the people on this site. They call " Community style " old school. However Community style was never expanded upon ( made better ). Instead Developers took it upon them selfs to decide what is good and new.
Players were lead like sheep down this path and scratch their heads trying to figure out why they jump from one game to the next. It does not matter who makes the game or graphics,abilities,classes, factions, PvP, PvE end game none of it. PEOPLE WILL NOT STAY IF ITS NOT MADE FOR A COMMUNITY.....Community is the ONLY thing that would make a player of an mmo log in five months down the road.
I'm playing Darkfall UW right now. This MMO is going strong right now, even the boards here are very active.
Is the game great ?...No........It has a lot of missing features, it has a major harvesting and crafting grind, its hard to compete in PvP with the higher end players until you play hard core for weeks to be the least bit completive.
So why is this mmo going strong with so many flaws ?.....Because, it's the only real mmo out their !.....You go where you feel, You don't know what you would run into each time you log in. Most of all you REALLY PLAY WITH A COMMUNITY.
We would have a WoW killer if a developer would step back and think, really think of what would make a long standing mmo PvE PvP instead of a non community, full of feature carrot on a stick crap of a game like every game on the list.
