Man, can I beat a dead horse with a stick or what ?
This time I'm using math without numbers........
Just look what's going on in the General Discussion Forums. Then look at any individual game forums, and then look at the Pantheon Forum, and last watch how people react when mentioning Pantheon. Let me add a little Phycology into the mix with the haters defending their stance on why the game will fail so badly. They actually look for the fight, their blood boils and they see red when anyone talks about Pantheon, they are the few, wayyyyyyy more people are looking forward to it than not. BUT, I'll say it again BUT, and I don't want to come across as rude, BUT they will be playing too !..........Wait, What ?........Sorry, this is just how people are, and you know it !.....I'll stop here with the Phycology.....You understand exactly what I'm talking about.
Just look at a recent posting on in General Discussion ( the pub ), " everyone gets a trophy, mmo's are in a drought ". It didn't take long before the fight turned to Pantheon and Everquest. They dominate over the argument. Pantheon usually winds up in all Pub topics !
MMo's are in a drought. It's been bad and getting worst !........By release this drought will be real bad. The people that argue against a problem have something in common with all their post " they are the rosy ones " they always say " everything is fine ", they say this over and over again. They think their optimism of how things are is just fine !.....They play the middle ground thinking their liked by all and they are the non-arguing types, when in fact they argue a lot. They are truly the minority but loud about it.
We are in a drought !......And Pantheon is here to save it !
I'll leave you with this because it's important:
No matter how bad you argue against Pantheon, you will have no choice but to be part of the mainstream....That's human nature.
They better be ready for a large population and the servers WILL crash
