    By ==>FAR<== my biggest dissapointment is ==>COMMUNITY<== and you wonder why.

    Becouse of constant whining and demand easy gameplay this go for almost all genres.

    The cheating which is real main problem, i use Darkfall 1 as my main example but also GW2 from launch alot cheating.

    Less and less true honest hardcore gamers who don't mind a real challenge a harsh enviroment and time sink thats needed to develope your character.

    Players who just play the game but never whine and stay behind in development becouse others can play more are rare(current genration(even oldgamers)these days, whine and cry so much demanding adjustments so they can catch up how pathetic)and the start whine and cheat(exploits-macro-hack ext.)untill developers dumb down game even then many still not satisfied.

    99% OF GAMERS these days are the downfall of whole genre which give us dumb down versions of games we have today, which alinate me and force me to play solo games.

    I play sinds 1999 AC1 was my first my last mmo i realy enjoy was AC2-Darktide(9years ago.

    I played Darkfall for 2.5 years but it was ruined by community mainly cheating and devs who listend to much to community and did not solve the huge problems(exploits-unblanced skills and progression). Splitting up community was big mistake also.

    Im already lost to mmo's i play mainly solo or co-op games for 2players thats all i dont have any hope for all multiplayer-mmo games, gamers won't change they only getting worse im affraid:(

    Negative towards my fellow gamers maybe but thats my experience and you can say what you want i have realy tried for long time but over and over again im so dissapointed in attitude of other players mainly cheating, im prolly out forever.

    SWG from day one.

    As a "second shuttle" beta tester, the game was a pretty big disappointment. There was a reason the NGE happened, contrary to popular belief.  It was far from the right answer of course...

    Warhammer Age of Reckoning - because it was so close! A lot of great design went into that game, which is why its failure is so disappointing.

     

    Guild Wars 2 - was the opposite, in that it didn't even come close to my expectations. It's disappointing in how far it missed the mark for me.

    SWTOR easily.  I was so excited, even read all the books and magazines pertaining to the game before release.  Only thing good was the story, everything else was so bad.  Quit after 1st month
  • SiugSiug TallinnPosts: 1,236Member Uncommon
    Of all MMOs I've played it would be GW2 because it lasted for the shortest time. Even SWTOR was playable for 2 months and VG in it's early beta condition when it was released.

    WoW: Cataclysm ruined WoW, dumbed down everything from character development to exploration and questing which became completely linear. Pandaria finished the job by dumbing down character development even more. What a disapointment after the fantastic Wrath of the Lich King.

    Conan was a huge disapointment, the franchise had so much potential. But, it's Funcom... or shall I say Failcom.

    Same for The Secret World... which doesn't feel like a world at all. Just like Conan, the game happens in totally separated and unrelated areas with an artificial traveling system that fails to make you believe in the world you're in.

    Warhammer not so much, because it is Mythic, so I more or less expected a poor quality game. Camelot Unchained, if it happens, will be the next deception.

    And then you have Darkfall (the two) and Mortal Online, which are PvP gank fests instead of being sandboxes.

     

    SW:TOR wasn't that bad and gave me 6 months of solid fun. That's more than all the crap games I listed above.

    And GW2 is still the best game I've played in a long, long time.

    I really hope either EQ Next or Archeage succeed in making a true sandbox MMORPG, but my hopes are not very high. For EQ Next, I'm afraid SoE won't be able to get away from their "forced raiding" end game concept, and Archeage remains Asian and there are good chances it will be an awful grind like Aion or Tera.

    Warhammer - First mmo to show me that marketing and game play were not the same.

    WoW - After BC, then dungeon finder, then easy play...The game turned to crap.

    D&D Online - I started playing a year after release when many things were fixed, it still had a very large population. THEN THE GAME WENT F2P.

    Vanguard - I just bought a cheap computer and knew it could not play the game. From the sidelines I watched it be a release flop. Years later I played it and it was the best, Low population was ok for me as I know how to get groups, so I loved the game. THEN IT WENT F2P.

    LOTRO - Years later, after mmos were not mmos anymore, I decided to play LOTRO to play one of the few mmos, But it WENT F2P as I was deciding to play.

     

    Everything else was a disappointment !

    For me it had to be SWTOR. Especially for all the money they put into the game. The PvP was poor, their system couldn't handle large open world PvP, and the big thing like basically every MMO game except City of Heroes/Villains was ever new character you play the missions were basically the same exact thing which keep from wanting to make new characters .

    The selling of the Shadowbane franchise to an Asian company. 

    Currently bored with MMO's.

    My top disappointment came just last year....it was a game i followed for quite awhile and I had high expectations for it....Then I played it.....The game is The Secret World......After playing another of FUncom's games for many years (AO) I had high hopes that this game would be good to great....Yeah AoC was a disappointment but I figured they had learned from their mistakes and would go back to AO type of gameplay and difficulty...Boy was I worng....TSW was pure crap...THe animations and combat were so bad I couldn't stand it for much more than a couple days and that was for free......When they started with box+sub+ cash shop I was in shock......After about 3 days I uninstalled this heaping pile of crap.....It is so bad I would not play it if FUncom offered to pay me to.

    Why do you care how others like their entertainment? It is not like you are forced to play with any of them.

    Difficulty and fun is in the eye of the beholder. I don't see a fundamental reason why others have to like your level of challenge. I bet guilds like Paragon and pro-gamers will think you are pretty weak in your gaming skills too and what you think of as challenging is easy for them.

    1.  SWG NGE - it was more than a disappointment. It wasn't like picking up a new game, trying it and being disappointed - - it was $OE taking a much beloved (not to mention awesome) game and community and throwing them under the WoW bus (and not looking back). Ouch.

    2. SWTOR - Entertaining...at first, then the repetitive, grindy feel in a shallow, lifeless world drove me away. I still want to know exactly where the $200+ million invested in the development of the game actually went to.

    3. AC2 - A game with much potential, but it suffered its own NGE (combat revamp) mid-June 2003, which led me to SWG's launch. A disappointment that led to something so much more awesome, so I am now wondering why I put AC2 on the list. image

    There are other games that I knew would be major disappointments, but access to beta testings spared me much grief. image

    I've only played a few games and can honestly say that none have disappointed me.

    This is not due to my superior skill in game selection but due to me looking at youtube vids of gameplay rather than marketing hype (I always like to watch game trailers but try to keep in mind that they are not the game itself).

    The thing that disappoints me is the way that people buy-in to hype, SWTOR was so over-hyped before the launch it was hard to believe that it would meet people's expectations.

    I sometimes make spelling and grammar errors but I don't pretend it's because I'm using a phone
