I ask this because, I think it's important to note that while I think Alganon will maintain a certain amount of fans of the game I wonder how many people who are playing it are sort of just waiting. I know when Alganon was first announced there was a lot of excitement for the game. I was excited for it -- and regardless of whether or not it has technical failings, I have come to realize that the reason I was excited for the game had more to due with me simply looking for the "next great thing."
I have always loved fantasy MMO games, and level based ones at that. Now I find myself, after disappointed in this game and even more dismayed by Aion, that I am clinging to the hope that next year will be better. The next big thing around the corner. So what are the games I am looking forward to?
1) Guild Wars 2
2) Final Fantasy 14
3) SW: ToR
4) Heroes of Telara (probably 2011)
5) New Blizzard MMO (probably 2011-12)
Anyway -- why would this matter to Alganon? As I said, I was excited for the game, then disappointed in it's implementation, but that doesn't mean that people playing it aren't like me in some ways. A lot of them, are probably playing this game a stop gap -- between now and the next big game. Are you one of them and if so, given the already low population of Alganon and the possible mess (more like debacle) a "hard launch" will cause, what does this type of mentality mean for the game?
