    Did you mean to post this on another website?

    Go look at the front page...

    ...see all that other coverage of other games?

    Videos, Features, News...etc?

    It's right there.

    I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?

    Dunno why people get all pandaphobic like welcoming it would make a person childish or......bring more kids to WoW. Even though WoW and a lot of MMOs have a significant amount of underage players. And some of those kids actually know what they're doing becuz they have more free time than most of us do. Be sick and tired. No one is asking you to care or expose your eyes to that which annoys you. I like pandas a lot more than undead, taurens and goblins. And I've been begging for a monk class for years now so WoW can utilize fist weapons more. If this brings a bigger crowd, kids or not, that just means more stuff in AH and less waiting around to find ppl for group quests.

    Getting too old for this $&17!

    All these years asking what MMO would kill WoW, and now we have the answer. Blizzar killed WoW, not with Titan, but with expansions that turned the game into something not worth playing. Yes WoW is dead, although it has milions of subscribers, it's a giant empty shell now.

  • BigBadWolfeBigBadWolfe Member Posts: 143
    .... Or you guys can just, idk, not play as the pandas?
    Problem solved.

    Don't get mad at mmorpg.com for reporting current news.  Get mad at the "other" developers out there missing some nice air time for their upcoming games. Like, ahem, ArenaNet, Funcom, and a few others.  

    At least PitchBlack is taking advantage of the air time.  Will be nice to actually play these games eventually, the last few years have just been all about the wait.  

    Oh, and Pandas rock.

    Millions play, but the game is dead ?

    I am seriously confused about your definition of "dead game".

     

    Please set a sig so I can read your posting even if somebody "agreed" etc with it. Thanks.

    Does anyone actually think the PAnda fits the Warcaft universe/LORE ?

    It started as a joke for a reason,because they never imagined it as a new addition the games LORE.Even their story behind them is a cheesey throw in,starting as docile creatures that  magically became sword weilding heroes/conquerers.Now even when they hit the game they won't be sword master Samarai type they will be as you guessed ,copies of the movie ...Monks/kung fu masters/hand to hand combat.

    So they create a cheesey story to get them in the game becuase their Samwise loves them ,then don't even follow their own cheesey LORE,definitely not taking it seriously.

    You can like them or hate them,they do not fit the games lore,so they are making a joke of their game by introducing them right after the movies.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Eh?  Why won't they be Samurai?  They have warriors and I gaurantee you their warrior trainers and early armor will look like samurai.

    This all seems like a somewhat arbitrary reason to dislike a bear race in a game with cow people and wolf people.  Pandarens were reclusive in lore even back with Warcraft.

    Is the lore silly and lighthearted?  Sure.  Would the game be better if it was 100% serious and 100% accurate at the cost of silliness and lightheartedness? Er...no, not really.

    @OP: ...did you just create a thread complaining about too much WOW talk?  Doesn't that seem a little ironic?  I mean you've steered discussion directly to talking about WOW.  Good work.

    Here we go. I will explain this to you.

    The Lore behind the Pandaren is limited pre MoP. Just like the Draenei. They also had little lore besides the WC3 stuff about them. thats all there was. until the Xpac came to detail the rest.

     

    The Pandaren fit the lore just like every other Humanoid Animal race in the Warcraft universe.

    here this for you,,,, since you want to knkow if it fits lore.

     

    notice these races

     

    * Quilboar = Humanoid Pig

    * Furbolg = Humanoid Bear

    *Wolvar = Humanoid Wolverine

    *Worgen = Humanoid Wolf

    *Tuskarr = Humanoid Walrus

    *Kobold = Humanoid Rat

     

     

    so you think a Humanoid Panda wouldnt fit the lore?

     

    seriously ???

    Yeah, this post is strange on this website. The news section is mostly non WoW / SWToR. The EQ2 merc video in particular, I thought was funny.

    But where are the Turtlerr, Hamstarr, and Guinee Pigloids?

     

  • teakboisteakbois Member Posts: 2,154

    At least there is actual news to report with MoP and the SWToR NDA lift.

     

    Or would you prefer more meaningless crap like the 7 month, 2 week, 3 day, 5 hour, 12th minute and 31st second anniversary of Rift's launch?

    Every gaming company make their own lore and make changes to it as they like or feel necessary. But lore is just an excuse because no amount of lore can make any of the EQ races like frogs and rats look less silly. No amount of lore can make you take popori race of Tera which look like teddy bears seriously.

    But if i have to play i will take Pandas any day over teddy bears, frogs and rats. Couldn't care less about lore and it is my opinion that an average MMO players doesn't care either.

    I am seriously confused about your definition of "dead game".

     

     

    Dead as having no life in itself. Only the inertia of all these years is supporting it but the game is empty and dead, it's just a matter of time it will start losing people until reaching the base line of wow-dwellers, the zombie-like people, maybe around 1 million players for such a big and glorious game in the past.

    A dead world of dead players playing the same dungeons over and over and over and over again. It could be the MMO player particular hell.

    And how is this different than any themepark MMOS? repetition is something you can not avoid in MMORPGS.
