Ranging anywhere from core design flaws to instancing to reptitviness of combat, my friend complained non-stop on skype for over an hour and half, eventually forcing me to just straight up stop playing so I could wait an hour for him to get off the game.
Why am I posting about this? Because during the first stress test He LOVED - and I mean LOVED the game! He clamoured about how it was a great representation of an Elder Scrolls game. He even went as far to make a facebook group for all of us so we could form a guild post-launch. We played for roughly 12 hours straight the first beta weekend and then a few more 3 hour sessions thrown in when we had time.
Now flash forward a couple weeks and his opinion had done a complete 180, why is this?
- He refused to roll a Character on Aldmeri Dominion or Daggerfall Covenant.
When he started saying how repetitive the game had become I asked him "Dude why dont you just roll an alt on a different faction". To which he then claimed their wasnt a point because he wouldnt be playing either faction at launch and that their shouldnt be factions anyways. What?? How does this even remotely add up, but I just tried to ignore it.
- He began spouting forum posts like gospel.
So we both frequent alot of the same forums and as crazy as it might sound to you guys, he began saying quotes that sounded very familiar to me, like things that didnt sound like his opinion but rather something he gathered from an outside source and was reciting rather than stating. I quickly found the post he was directly quoting but didnt confront him, it was pointless because you know what post it was? One of the biggest troll posts on the forum. Hundreds of comments with heated opinions on both sides. This was it for me, I wasnt going to be a dick and call him out but I had enough.
- He still wants it to be 1999
At the end of the conversation when I had just lost all effort he said one thing I still remember clear as day,
"Why cant they just make a "GOOD REAL MMO" like EQ again?"
Ill let you form your own opinions from there but to me this just speaks to the overall MMO community.
People are so ready to throw their lives away on a single game, one MMO to rule them all, that they lose out on playing a fun game and just enjoying it with their friends.
They micro analyze everything to the smallest detail to figure out what is wrong with the game rather then themsleves.
They dont want to change their ways or try something else in the game to make it better.
They quickly go to forums and to other opinions that are the same as theirs to validate why their opinion is right.
Does this sound like anyone you know or in your community?
