I think maybe that's why they decided to provide a histogram instead of just removing scoring based on their reviews. The players can look at when the negative reviews started flowing in and judge the veracity accordingly.majinant said:Usually bombs when the change something like adding P2W crap into their game. That isn't malicious, that's just what happens when you decide to fuck over your player base.
Dude, you're the only terminology crusader on these boards.nariusseldon said:Obvious the crusaders who can't stomach their own definition of MMO is NOT being used care a great deal.Panther2103 said:Who even cares at this point. Play the games you like, whether that be an MMORPG or an FPS or a farming simulator. Just enjoy what you play. I like Destiny 2, I like ESO, I have my own opinion on what an MMO is, but I don't honestly care. I don't see why everyone seems to.
Look at all the long posts about "logic" and "reasons" and lessons about the English language. You probably already notice that people are not here to talk about games they like to play. They are here to crusade against their position, whether it is ffa pvp, or how MMO should be defined.
No, I attempted a reasonable debate with you. You didn't seem to understand what a false dichotomy was, ignoring my response to regurgitate the same drivel you've been spouting, almost verbatim, over and over.No, but it seems like you are the one who seems butthurt. Your the only one here throwing insults and not bringing anything meaningful to the discussion.MadFrenchie said:I sense a level of butthurt from you on this topic.Pirates will always defend their pirating ways.Ozmodan said:That is Blizzard's choice not these idiots running private servers. Why would any intelligent being even bother with a private server, all of the self destruct either through shenanigans like this one of through action by Blizzard. All their private servers are essentially thieves. The only thing I see in this post is a lot of self justification for doing something that is dumb.Tamanous said:Incorrect. Now you just nitpicking to make a point.Albatroes said:
My point is now, and always will be, that the only way for Blizzard to take ownership of this issue is to host legacy servers themselves. How that iteration would be done is something I cannot predict. I speak of why players are attracted to the Nost/Elysium/Lightshope philosophy of Wow emulation and the current meta of emulators running.
I do not defend private emulators ... I merely give the facts of why they exist. What is to defend? The reasons they exist won't go away because of your opinion. You can choose not to play on them but to argue over what is right or wrong does not change what is reality.
The reason why emulators have cash shops is because costs of development and hosting demand it. Because of the loops they must jump through to keep them running to avoid legal issues they are limited by their methods. Who profits by how much and the methodology used can be a choice behind why someone supports it or not but that is not my point.
You may choose any reason why not to support it just like I choose not to support Blizzard for the legalized corruption they profit from. I do not support developers who now use F2P marketing strategy and who reshape their products to different market groups against the wishes of their original audience. This goes for any product and not just within the video game market.
I will not be a lemming standing by watching the the free market collapse under oligarchy control without expressing whatever influence is left to us lowly consumers. The consumer is a product now, and the ignorance expressed by many of you here condones this. 50% of Americans just had their full identity information leaked yet the company at fault will only profit from this due to current laws protecting them and not the citizen. You do nothing and let it happen. F2P and meta-marketed games with nearly zero diversity in genre has taken over video games. You do nothing and let it happen.
What is legal does explicitly mean what is right. Legality is not a static concept. It evolves and it's evolution currently progresses to protecting the rights of business and not the consumer. This has EVERYTHING to do with what is going on here.
This is the core concept of consumerism and capitalism: a consumer demand exists and this demand is met by business venture. What is the demand here? Legacy Wow. Is the market providing a product to meet his demand? Yes. Is the business that created this demand making this product? No.
Who is perpetuating this demand by not providing the ONLY legal solution? Blizzard.
Blizzard holds the cards. Blizzard is using the law to not support the very concept of consumerism. The law is the inhibitor of consumerism within a so called capitalistic country. This is the modern trend of business. This is what the ignorant consumer supports who hides behind the very laws that no longer protects their interests. They very video game market you support makes niche game development harder and harder for independent development. Choice is swallowed up by nearly unmitigated mergers ... in nearly all areas of business.
If you argue against the concept of why the demand of legacy Wow exists (whether it's currently legal or not) ... you argue against your very right as a consumer. Your ignorance is so clear it is sublime.
This is the last I post on this. Time and time again it becomes apparent to me that the vast majority of posters hear lack the free thinking capacity to comprehend the current nature of how industry works today and where it's headed. These are fruitless debates.
First its, DRM oh no! ...but witcher 3 had no DRM and was still heavily pirated
Too many microtransactions! oh no! but witcher 3 had free DLC and amazing expansions...and was still heavily pirated
Pirates and thieves will always defend their actions, because they know its stealing and wrong but don't want to look like criminals and petty thieves.
Did someone steal your favorite Legos when you were a kid?
Pretty pathetic anyone would defend thievery and pirating, but as they say...thieves band together and defend themselves. Everyone in this thread or reads the thread can see who pirates and steals games, its pretty obvious.
