This comes from a guy that has very little experience with first generation mmorpg's.
Non-hand-holding does not have to be thought of as old school......That's something that you guys had made up !......I don't believe in any of this newer generation players wouldn't put up with it !!

"Sadly for most MMORPG players nowadays its not an adventure for them. Its a checklist of things to do and complete and they want anything that allows them to complete that checklist quicker."
This is very powerful stuff here. This comes from a guy that hates me, yet I agree with him "its not an adventure for them". My opinion, checklist games were forced on the population.
It's absolutely no different than inventing a new flavor of coffee that everyone hates and wiping out all other flavors. What will people do ?........they'll drink the new flavor anyway, MILLIONS.
The only difference between old and new generation. New generation will not put up with broken and I don't blame them !!!..... At times I worry about Pantheon.
Some things are not quite right with the game....... I think I know what it is !...... We need a good gameplay trailer that shows players in a city forging things at a work bench, talking with NPC's, a few people chatting together and forming a group, all with a good sound track. Something to show a natural life that players will experience.
Sooo many questions:
How are groups formed ?
Why ?... what are the goals ?
Where are they going ?
Where did they come from ?
What does prepping your character look like ?
What do venders have ?
What does the auction look like?
I think Pantheon is in pre-pre-pre-alpha. I guess that's OK too.
My bitter cold statement, and most will hate me for this:
They're F%$#ing around too long with strange graphics and character models !!
Blizzard, ArenaNet and Square Enix can slap a game together so fast your head would spin.
