I've been critical and blunt, It's time to change direction. And not to please the audience or Visionary Realms, I'm still critical and blunt.
With all my negativity, their is something I haven't taken into account.
They say time heals all wounds, well it does more, it could heal video games. The problem with healing mmorpg's is "it's always too late". Most of us could count on our fingers the few video games out of thousands that were released flawless.
The BIG PROBLEM with mmorpg's is they never recover. Off line games are simple. It releases, you buy, done !... You wait, they fix, boom all is forgotten about !.... mmorpg's rely on population. If bad, people quit 9 times out of 10. They bash scorn drag it through the mud, game over. The fact is, it comes down to money. Developers know their product is flawed if they have bata testers, but money is money, often they have no choice.
Visionary Realms has an off chance to be different !!!
The Fans and bashers alike haven't a clue. We sit home in our safe space attempting their accounting. We sit in our pajamas solving their problems as I'm doing right now..... Who's to say Visionary Realms aren't working with 100% passion !
Release could be ten years away. I'm exaggeration or maybe not, we can't lurk in their minds, we don't know any details.
Take Vanguard... Brad could have been thinking 10 years, Microsoft could have been 2 years then the fight started.
The "vision" could be more than we know. The interview process my involve passion or your out.
