First, let me apologize for the bold title. My intentions are not to anger people. A title such as this instantly suggest "don't tell me what to do" And this gets people mad......I would like to ask people to leave their inhabitations at the door, not jump to conclusions and shut down in a defensive stance.
As it stands now ( 2015 ) the MMO market is "stuck in a lie ". Pantheon Rise of the Fallen to me at least is taken a Risky chance at pulling the rug out from the careful planned out marketing lie. Gamer's have been told untruths by companies to help create there own agenda. I have prof, and here it is: Free-To-Play Cash Shops. This in it's self is telling us money and lots of profit is the motivator. But it goes far beyond simple money. We also have cheaper products with less, easy content. Doing the math, we now have two negative aspects working against giving the player a nice multiplayer world to live in for years on end......when was the last time you played one ?...More prof !
Were stuck in a lie !
For the purpose of this discussion I'll have to make up a name for modern mmos and I would like to call them Quick-fun-fun-games. Games like this are getting old and run of the mill. We had been jumping on every new release because were addicted and need our fix. We pray the new game will not be a Quick-fun-fun-game but they are. Shallow shells of what were looking for. Quick-fun-fun games are well advertised using non-game play cinematic videos. Saturday morning cartoons full of action, yet players are to be fooled into believing they have something to do with the game itself, yet never does.....Warhammer started this marketing crusade idea and it simply took as the base line of hype marketing.
Because of this advanced marketing scheme. We all play EVERYTHING, adding we need our mmo fix. Are we truly happy ? We at times pretend we are, but with Quick-fun-fun-games we can only fool ourselves for a short time, because that's what Quick-fun-fun-games do !
Now with all this, I would like to explain myself in why Everyone will be playing Pantheon Rise of the Fallen :
Old Schoolers recognize Quick-fun-fun-games. They spot them instantly ! Most don't like them and voice their opinion,hence we have an argument.
New players don't know any better, sorry it's not your fault. They have NOTHING TO COMPAIRE. Older classics are just too old to bother with........Their just insanely old !
Something else that's a major point. " Newer players don't have time " First, who made this up ? Second, what does time have to do with it ? Last I've seen, mmos are to be an ongoing adventure to be played at any pace !....this is a lie people here started.
Most important of all - If Pantheon is built like they say, everyone will play it no matter what ! Even the most negative poster will climb on the bandwagon. Why do they even hate the idea anyway ? What are you finding wrong with it ? Because it's being advertised as a Social game ? Play with others ?....... Last I knew, that's the point of an mmo.
Haters just hate. No words will win, they have blocked ears. But crunch time they log in like everyone else
Last, everyone plays everything. It's totally a fact ! If it's good players will play for years.
People bring people. Many will say, I'll not play Pantheon. Yet, they have nothing to play because all their is are fun-fun-games.
I'm running on the idea. Old Schoolers will be first. Newer players will follow because fun-fun-games only last for a short time, and have nothing to play.
The newer player will get their first shot at an mmo and like it.......Remember the classics are simply too old for the new player to even try. And if they do, there too dam old !
I'm not picking a new title and hyping it. I'm looking for a REAL mmo. Infact I think developers don't even like me, that's ok, I like them !
