So I notice this article on massively
Having been around since launch, the population balance between Asmodian and Elyos was largely in favor of the Asmodians. On some servers, the Asmodians we're largely overpopulated.
Fast forward to now and I was shocked to hear that the Asmodians are so under populated on some servers that they need incentives for sake of game balance out.
Does anyone else wonder if there is a connection between the 'dark and evil' side (although I know some people would like to beat me with a bag of oranges for callings Asmos evil) and the (for lack of a better way of putting it) 'fairweatheredness' of those inclinced to choose said dark alignment.
Furthermore I can't help but wonder if SWTOR will potentially have the same issue in due time. At launch, the sith population was far exceeding that of the republic and it'd be interesting to see if, over time that dwindles like Aion. It'd be interesting for there to be an actual connection between choosing the 'dark' alliance in a game and such correlating traits to real life.
We really need separate forums for every newly launched game. There can be the anti-<MMO> one and there can be the 'what general discussion should be' one. All the lamenting can happen together where each can find solace in like minded can't-move-on-ers leaving the rest of us to actually move forward and discuss meaningful and relevant topics.
