People seem to want a sandbox but they are all dead compared to other mmo's. Why are these games failing when they seem so ideal? My theory is the developers are making anarchy sandbox games instead of civilized sandbox games. Once they start putting order to the sandbox people cry and start calling it themepark. I feel that anarchy sandbox designs do not work at all. But has anyone made a sandbox where they had civilized towns with guards enforcing laws if you were stupid enough to break them? Mortal Online attempts such feats but the way it is implemented gives much reason for player dislikes. Sandboxers claim they want total anarchy gameplay yet developers know this is just a waste of time because without civilizations to create a box for the sand you just have a sandpile.
