  • Elysium 'Private Server' Shuts Down Temporarily Due to Financial Shenanigans - World of Warcraft - M

    I wish Bliz would stop being jerks and just host a couple of classic/progression style servers. I am always tempted to play on an private server but so many drama loving idiots ruin it. Plus the inevitable shut down.

    Yeah, this is Blizzards fault.

    lolwut!

  • After Internal Playtest of EA Alpha Build, 'It Just Ain't Ready Yet' - Wild West Online - MMORPG.com

    I remember a time when most people were actually excited about an actual release of a game and not excited over paying to test a game for a company, but I guess everything changes overtime. Founder's packs, pre-orders with alpha/beta access, early access being considered alpha/not being considered alpha, companies releasing paid dlc/even having cash shops while in Early access lol. I'm pretty sure most older games dont miss the old game content as much as they miss the gaming integrity that companies used to have. Every developer feels they should break away from a major company and make the game "they and the fans always wanted" while most of them end up being cash grabs/failures. Change isn't always bad, but it definitely isn't always good.

    I'm pretty sure for those of us who did do testing it was pretty exciting getting in. Just most of you didn't get in so there wasn't much buzz, that and they were under NDA so there wasn't much buzz. People did want in though and there was always a lot of talk around getting a test selection email. 

    Your post is the quintessential "rose colored glasesses" view. There hasn't been a dramatic shift in integrity over the past few years. There's been a dramatic shift in social connectivity and communication to discuss these things. Back in the day people like you complained about all the stuff you are now only from the other side - why do scummy developers not let everyone test, what are they hiding, they're all scammers, etc. How do you think we got where we are today with early access and open testing? Did you forget this is the cake you asked for a decade ago? Eat up.

  • Epic Touts a Million Players Taking Part in Battle Royale on Its Opening Day - Fortnite - MMORPG.com

    Here's what my inner conspirator says:
    Epic PR is on fire. First they had the PUBG "fiasco" to draw attention to their game launch. Then they bring out the big show demonstrating seamless cross platform console play through a "configuration file accident", which has since been corrected.

    I think they threw down the gauntlet and just told the competitive shooter crowd that they are serious by demonstrating they've already built cross play into the game and are only held up by the selfish interests of the console platform owner. In this case that's just Sony.

    My inner gamer says:
    This isn't about PUBG and BlueHole at all. This is about Epic jumping back into the competitive shooter game UT style and sort of blindsiding everyone in the process.

    The Division isn't a Steam exclusive and many more people play on other platforms.
    Borderlands 2 isn't a Steam exclusive too.

    How many people play multiplayer or the game period off of Steam? That's the difference. Go ahead and explain that one away. Do people even buy them on the other PC platforms?

    You didn't post "The Division isn't a Steam exclusive and many more people play multiplayer on other platforms.", so what's up with the questions?

    I just pointed out that both The Division and Borderlands 2 aren't Steam exclusives.

    I wasn't wrong.
    Good irrelevant point. Thanks for inserting something useless and pedantic that furthered the discussion in no way. And you still didn't answer the question.
