First off, through the normal aging process, a character could live for roughly 1 real life year. The reason for aging in this game is because of realism. This game is focusing on an ever unfolding story where WE the players partake in it, possibly even as a main character. It would be extremely hard for a story to evolve if no one ever died. Not to mention it adds a hell of a lot of role play to the game. Despite what you may have thought MMORPG's were, they are in fact ROLE PLAYING games. I know, for some MMO fans, it's a hard topic to grasp.ReallyNow10 said:Not to me. Whatever novelty this multiple lives over a span of time has, I predict folks will lose interest fast. It's kind of like "so what", is "Bob the Barbarian" the same player as "Bob the Barbarian II"? If so, why not just keep calling him "Bob the Barbarian"? Better question, why do devs keep experimenting with stuff doomed to failure?
Not saying the rest of the game is not going to be good, just talking about this one aspect.
Haha, people bitch about Early Access, people bitch about lengthy developments. Just relax man and let the trained professionals do their job.bentrim said:just get the game out already...this IS getting old
Except the private WoW servers beg to differ. I'm not sure how much evidence you need to realize, Classic WoW servers have been desired for a while now. Not to mention a lot of people that thought about private servers did not like the idea of servers going bye bye and losing all their progression. Than again, everyone making these claims were also the same people that said Blizzard would never make a WoW Classic server and guess what, it happened.cheyane said:I think what he is saying is there will be a decent number but that there would be a large drop off after the initial surge in population. It is true I also think the servers will drop off and it will have a population but nowhere close to the number that try it initially and there will be a steady population that will stay.
However WoW has one advantage over the Project 1999 server in that end game content is not locked up by a few guilds making it impossible for others to enjoy the end game raids. In this respect the server will not be full of people so fed up once they reach top level .
People playing a game with no end game raid instances must accept that they will never see the end game content and be satisfied with that. I have when I originally played Everquest got even my epic so that aspect is not going to upset me but surely not everyone is happy with that.
DMKano is not wrong and anyway the proof is in the pudding we just have to wait.
