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.

  • We Built a KILLER $3600 Ryzen PC for Destiny 2 (and are Giving Away a Ryzen 5 1500X!) - General Hard

    While it certainly is a nice piece of hardware I expect more for $3600. Besides the CPU it is equal or worse to my build which I put half that sum into. And while it is a huge upgrade from my 6800K it is not a $1800 worth difference.

  • Do you think World of Warcraft changed everything ?

    What is ridiculous about these comments is that you do not account for anything else other than DF killing it off.

    The time you had you were either:
    • Retired
    • Unemployed
    • College Student
    Personally I was an Unemployed college student, and unemployed twice since then.

    I'm not sorry for not spending enough time with you, some of us are actually looking for more than that.
    Some of us Old Schoolers have family and 40-50hr work week now, we can keep living like it's 1964.
    Welcome to Real Life!
    Many of us try our best to balance that time and still squeeze in swinging greatsword, summon a seed of life, read up on the latest theory crafting or whatever part of the game that keeps you coming back for more.
    See, this is your typical selfish poster....... " I " don't have time !

    You do know their are at least 200 mmos on the list just for you, and none for the players that have time.
    Holy cow!
    You are right petty selfish of me to put Real life responsibilities first over helping you get your ilvl 970 Legendary.

    I wonder if this actually works for folks in RL.
    If you think all MMOs must be for people with a lot of things to do IRL, then yeah, that is a bit selfish. That you want a good game focused on your own schedule is fine though.

    I work so I don't really have the time to game 8+ hours a day except weekends and I do have other things to do as well. I could do 4 though since I don't watch TV.

    MMOs should have different time requirement so some games fit better to people that just play an hour every other day while others caateer to people that doesn't have much else going on.

    I think the majority of the gamers are in the middle with 2-6 hours a day to put into games and other hobbies with dips for things like taking carte of small kids.

    The problem with MMOs tend to be that almost all of them are focused on the same players: the people who play maybe an hour a day and want super easy content. While there are certainly more then a few of those players we loose a lot of others since all games focus onb the same group.

    Just because there are (probably) more super casuals then any other group does not mean the group is larger then the rest together, I have a feeling it is way smaller then that and making all games for a single group hurts the genre rather badly.

  • Okay WTF is a MMO? Really?

    MMOs Mean "Massive multiplayer online" so what is a MMO comes down to what the word "massive" means.

    Here is what Cambridge dictionary say:

    massive adjective

     UK ​ /ˈmæs.ɪv/ US ​ /ˈmæs.ɪv/

    B2 very large in sizeamount, or number:

    They have a massive house.
    She died after taking a massive overdose of drugs.
    If the drought continuesdeaths will occur on a massive scale.

    And it is number we are talking not size.

    Destiny do have 16 as max players, is that right? (don't play myself so it could be more or less).

    Is 16 a very large number of players?

    Every bloody FPS game today have that many or more so I would say it is average, not very large.

    Therefore is Destiny not a MMO and neither is Diablo 3. Any FPS game with 128 players on the other hand do qualify since that is indeed a very large number, like Joint Ops.

  • Player's vendor vs Auction House , will you still open your own vendor eventhough there is AH ?

    Right, leaving issues with implementation and overall economy aspect aside, penalizing vastly more preferred mechanics over one that was historically deemed as overcomed is something players are thriving after. More inconvenience, the better.

    Yep, my bad, I keep forgetting that on these boards common sense and reason has no place...
    There is always a broker fee at auction houses, usually 20% but we seen more in some games, less is rare and in the case I seen you needed a special case to get it down to 15%.

    You will pay broker fee in any case, and without the option to walk to a store and skip the fee for expensive stuff.

    That sure sounds like common sense and reason, right?

    Stuff like that makes it worth peoples time to actually go shop instead of just use the AH 
    No, it doesn't. Running around checking dozens of stalls looking for an item is simply bad design and why stalls where abandoned as trading mechanics.
    Then you pay more at the AH, no problem. Player owned shops gives a discount for time spent, nothing else. If you prefer to spend that time grinding cash to cover the broker fees instead it is your choice.

    How is that bad game design? The more options a game have the better it is.

    And I do push for sligthly higher broker fee then most MMOs have today, 30% instead of the standard 20% but frankly would that just help a little against the hyper inflation MMOs get.
