I'm sitting here at 5am completely gameless for both single player games and mmos. I thought about Elex as a single player game, but decided, no it's broken and played the hell out of Vanilla WoW and need a long break.
So here I stand like thousands of us searching....searching....searching for a classic to play, always coming up empty.
A good many of us would click on LOTRO and other mmos here, to see if anything changed, wishing for a miracle that never comes. I'll sit here trying to figure out how to make LOTRO work and have some fun.
It's impossible: - Free-to-play makes it impossible. - Easy solo makes it impossible. - A total "rally" is needed and this has to be generated by developers.
In another discussion both Po_gg and Torval explain how to get a large-bang-for-your-buck. It's true, you really can get a great deal, infact it's almost too good to be true, but what good is it if all the people are top level, no new people will ever stick around.
But theirs an unmistaken problem associated with playing this mmo !!!..... And thousands of us know it !!!
If you take the deal, it still leaves you all alone. No one else is taking the "deal" at the same time. Your an individual all alone, playing a SOLO EXPERIENCE trying to figure out WHO HAS WHAT PACKAGE or are they playing a free demo ?..... Your still simply all alone.
Some will say " I'm going for it, I'll embrace the community "........ It takes a rare person to really do this, infact I've never seen this actually happen, and I'm sure you haven't either. It's simply too much hoop jumping that no one ever cares to endure.
It's impossible, free-to-play broke the game, easy broke the game ! The model doesn't work for new players
