    Define "difficult" with regards to MMORPG gameplay.

    I don't define anything, use your imagination. 
  • If all mmo's were diffacult, would you enjoy them more ?

    A few in-development mmos will be released within the next few years with the promise higher difficulty gameplay.  They seem to have a following mainly because of this feature. 

    What would happen if all the latest ( modern) mmos raised difficulty to a far greater level ? 

    For me this would simply encourage community, and make abilities count...... WoW, what a feature :)

    WoW was significant in terms of impcat on MMO industry.

    However Vanguard and WAR - just a couple of games that didnt make it, these were not "events" that shook the gaming industry. 

    When you look at history of MMOs, VSoH and WAR are sidenotes.

    I totally disagree. 

    Vanguard and Warhammer had a extremely large impact.  They were both viewed as the FUTURE.  This was a "Big time in history".  Very very big.

    When everyone thought innocence.  Instead we got betrayal for profit !!!!!

    How does this benefit the gamer if we keep getting crap games that still survive.  It doesn't.   If the game isn't good enough to warrant an upfront cost and a sub, it should fail and go away.  The next developer will then know they have to do better or don't bother.  I'd rather have one amazing MMO every 5 to 10 years than 20 pieces of shit every year.

    You are under the mistaken assumption that anyone is looking for gamer's benefit. That's not how business works.

    Who makes the product - that's who is benefiting - in the case - the question should be - "how does this benefit the game companies" - as that's the only question the game companies are asking, "the benefit for the gamer" - that's never brought up, because it's not their concern.

    The focus is - "how do we get the consumers to spend money on our product" - that's the bottom line of any business.

    Again - you are looking at this from the gamer's perspective - why? Because gamers are not the ones that run game companies - so your wants and needs of "wanting to have most games shut down and only few survive" - why would any business do this? 

    It would be like going to  movie companies and telling them to only make a few great movies and skip 100s of mediocre movies - should the movie industry listen to an outsider who has no investment, and no direct input in making any movies?

    Get real - your needs are completely irrelevant to the industry as whole.

    Movies just like games are made to make money - that's what drives the whole industry.

    Would it be nice to only have awesome quality product - yes it would be - is this in any way shape or form realistic - nope, so why even go there?

    How come you get away with using " your " instead of " you're " ? 

    Maybe because everything else I spell is wrong ?.... Only kidding, I don't care :) 

    Now I understand the problem, you really thought that 'your' and 'you're' are the same.

    Your is a possessive pronoun  for example.... your car, your wife and so on.

    You're is a contraction for you are. It is when two words are made into one word.  You are an idiot can be written as you're an idiot.

    You fixed something I never thought of, and busted my balls by calling me an idiot at the same time..... Good for you :)
  • Vanilla World of Warcraft, if released today would be #1

    You should try Project 1999 and I can almost guarantee you won't be able to handle it having been coddled by WoW. It will at least open up your eyes to what had come before and perhaps give some pause before you start one of your threads. You really cannot live without getting some affirmations from these forums I see but hey to each its own.

    EQ1 could be #1 if it were released today.

    However It was crude being such an extreme early 3 d game.  I'm in no way knocking the game it's just par for its time is all..... this is what Pantheon will fix and make #1 :) 

    You're not as sweet and loving as you portray !
