I am a Swedish RPG fan who sometime make pen and paper stuff for roleplaying conventions. I love RPGs, MMOs and turned based strategy games, listens to metal and work as a CNC coder/industrial worker.  I currently live in Malmö (next to Coopenhagen) but will be moving to Öland soon. And for the moment I work weekends so I have plenty of spare time on weekdays but will be unavaliable saturdays and sundays. And I know stuff about history that makes people stare very strangely at me, just love to read about the past without any specific favorite period. I can use a sword, have a good one as well (hand made copy with the original from about year 1000) as a chainmail and helmet but I wouldn't call myself good with it. My favorite beverage is Guiness.

  • ByrgenarHofen said: The problem is not with the game, it is with the players. No matter what Anet do to "balance" class's, players will always look for the numerical advantage, declare that as Meta, and insist that other players adopt it or G…
  • While I hate loot boxes actually banning them is not a good idea. Forcing the devs to publish the odds is fine though.  Personally I just don't buy them and boycot games that have blatant pay2win content.
  • Dauzqul said: ... #4. The time and money developers waste on these gigantic quest lines. I'd rather that time / money be spent on insane combat / reusable content. Quests is the far easiest and fastest content to make, particularly if …
  • The main problem with quest driven MMOs is that you usually do so many quests in a short while that the grind get noticable fast. In a game like TSW it is not a problem since it lacks the tons of fast quests you forget the moment they are done. I …

  • I don't know. I never have but that doesn't mean I couldn't.
  • Not really, I tend to play the same game on and off for years mixing it with other genres (particularly 4X games). The time I MMO have gone down the last 10 years though.
  • Kyleran said: I actually have..... but not really because of loot boxes, just the general direction the genre took in many areas. Single player games are pretty cool though, especially if you wait until all the DLC's are bundled into a single pa…
  • DKLond said: Too much money involved for them to take a risk. They're also not doing Hobbit/LotR - meaning most of it will probably not be Tolkien - just "inspired" by him. Can't really see anything to get excited by, but you never really know…
  • Velifax said: If it had anything to do with nostalgia then id agree there would be a question about the necessity of ressurecting old school games. But, as has been exhaustively and repeatedly outlined, nostalgia is a minor and irrelevant piece…
  • SEANMCAD said: Personally I consider Eve and open world game not really 'sandbox'. the only sandbox MMO that I am aware of that I would consider sandbox would be Wurm. That said, I can see it going both ways Wurm is probably the most san…
  • The problem with level progression is that any zone below max level get pointless rather soon but if you want to update a lot of zones to max level I think the real problem is the progression for you. Cut down the powergap a lot and make low level …
  • I would have to agree with Oltzu and say Eve. There are a few acceptable sandparks like BDO and AA but the pure sandboxes leaves a lot to wish for. Generally they turn into anarcistic brawls. There are a few older games like Ryzom that are good bu…
  • I don't think anyone know the perfect concept or they would get a sponsor and make it. In my case it would be something very close to a pen and paper roleplaying game with mobs & npc done with the help of an AI. Intrigue for instance is something …
  • I don't have any problems with selling random skins in the gemshop but i do have a problem when gemstore skins outshines legendary skins. Letting people buy good looking skins is no problem whatsoever as long as the hardest to get in the game i…
  • It is a good thing but I can't stop to think that when people are willing to pay for something like this there is a problem with the game itself. You shouldn't need to bot since playing should be fun in itself, too many boring timesinks is the real…
  • It was innovation that made SWG such a good game. Remaking it would make something far less interesting then the original game. You can certainly be inspired by it though and evolve many of it's ideas like it's interesting crafting and resource gat…
  • Manestream said: Depends. Some new features of games are nice. However the leveling is crap, its way too fast, like hardcore players can max out in less than a day, casuals less than a week. What does that leave the game with then. It was bett…
