I was browsing the fine content of your website today, always happy to be accurately informed as to what is going on in the mmo world. And Just as I was about to log off, I saw a banner ad which really upset me.
The banner ad in question
Since when does Mmorpg.com take ad money from people who are destroying mmorpgs?
These companies provide services that directly violate the end user liscense agreement of every major mmorpg on the market today.
I took a moment to take a look at their site, and their official services include:
"Power Leveling": We advance your character to the target level
(or the equivalent for the game in question) selected by you.
Trade skill advancement: We improve a trade skill such as blacksmithing, alchemy, etc. to the goal you choose.
Player-vs,-Player rank advancement
In-game item acquisition / "Instance Farming"
In-game currency acquisition
So, i'm wondering good mmorpg.com staff why would you let these people advertise here?
I really am outraged that you would allow this kind of "cheating" to be advertised on your page.
However, it may just be myself, the staff of PCGAMER magasine, and every major mmorpg company who think this way. I think you need to rethink your advertising.
Read for yourself what they do.
"Our mission is to make MMORPG.COM a site designed to meet the needs of the online gaming community. Let us know what you are looking for!"
I really don't think that supporting destruction of the requirement to play a game to be high level / have good gear is really meeting the needs of your online gaming community. And I am looking for a mmorpg information site that doesn't advocate cheating.
Now, I know this isn't exactly a nice post to read, but its how I feel and i'm letting you know it. I wasn't sure if this belongs here or in the general pub, so I will post it in both, feel free to lock/delete one but I would appreciate letting this issue at least be heard.
