  • New Teaser Site & Steam Hub Herald a 2018 Release - Bless Videos - MMORPG.com

    I'll be honest, I'm only going to try the game cause they let you have body tattoos at customization.

  • Where was this game all my life?

    On the plus side, if the game dies at least the characters will be added to MxM so you'll have the memories, like they did with CoH characters.

  • Activision Granted Patent that Pairs Players to Increase Microtransaction Purchases - General News

    Maybe I had rose-tented glasses on when I think back to the old days of gaming, but I dont remember the scene being so money hungry 10+ years ago. I remember devs not just saying that they were gamers but actually would talk about their times in various games as well as top titles they played or co-op moments they had with people, etc. Now, with them pretty much just being blatant about how much they want us to give them more money, its honestly just pushing me to quit the entire scene together. Call me a fool but I'm honestly MORE inclined to give a company money when I dont feel like they are trying to pull out my wallet and open it for me every few minutes in their game especially if I've already gave them money upfront just to play it. We hardly get demos anymore and pre-order was shoved down people's throats in the past 5 years. Heck, even the Assassin's Creed: Origin's pre-order tells you up front you wont get access to a mission if you dont pre-order. That's straight up completed content that they are saying you wont get unless you give them money first. I dont know about anyone else, but if you can already say what extra you're going to release for the game before its even released, that should just be included. The only thing I can kind of let slide is if its something cosmetic. Lets not forget that SE is working on a SECOND season pass for FFXV supposedly, cause you gotta milk as much as you can I guess.

    The destruction of independent and creative studios continues. How many now lie in the garbage heap beneath the EA towers?



    Personally, I can't wait for them to finish the title so I can see what's in their loot boxes /endsarcasm. I still can't believe they're defending loot boxes, saying "People did not experience the full set up and will understand it better at launch" or some garbage.

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

    Good, now the freeloaders can pay for a WoW sub like everyone else. The only reason they were playing this server was because it was free (with a cash shop I guess). No more stealing from Blizzard, and if they still don't want to pay for WoW (which you can play for free anyway by grinding gold)...well plenty of other free MMOs.


    Your opinion is pure naivety. You know nothing about the player base by this very statement.

    Several servers are already fully supported by cash shops which means players pay. This is exactly how legal f2p servers work which is basically how retail Wow is now anyway, for a huge portion of the live player base.

    This drama is over the vanilla wow servers that DID NOT WANT cash shops to influence the game and hoped donations were enough to keep the game alive without F2P influences in game ... the influences that impact retail Wow right now and forever changed to game as you admit yourself.

    If players play retail Wow for free now ... how does your argument that players only play vanilla Wow because it's free or has cash shops as well make sense? It doesn't. You have no point to make.

    If Blizzard hosts old version of Wow themselves it means that likely one subscription would allow access to all anyway. Players could still buy their sub in game with gold and access legacy server for free anyway. Those paying in cash shop are the same either way.

    The likely outcome may actually be that Blizzard corrupts the legacy experience MORE than private emulation actually wants. Why? Because Blizzard's track record only proves it by the the very act of meta-marketed production of Wow that destroyed vanilla in the eye's of the players who support Nost/Elysium/Lightshope and I do not, nor ever will support emulators outside of that philosophy.

    Please do not speak for a community you know absolutely nothing about. I should had that a large portion of Wow emulator players also play retail Wow. This is very evident from chat in game. A bulk of Wow player just like Wow ... all versions of it. They want to be able to play any Wow experience from launch through live retail. A mixed bag of old school, old Wow player and fresh players exist as well (again, most those coming from retail).



    You're trying to compare a project's management of an ORIGINAL product to something that is stolen and being profited off of. Some defenses for private servers are always funny.
