Get back to me Amazon when you are SERIOUS about creating games and not just looking to make a quick fast buck.A new age game if trying to be actually different should take a minimum of 7 years to make.Even a HQ single player game should take around 4 years,these guys are trying to pull a Smedley and sell us some half baked game.
"You have kept me at your beck and call for fifteen years. I shall never again do what you demand of me. By every rule of single combat, from this moment your life belongs to me. Is that not correct? Then I shall simply declare you dead. In all of your dealings with me, you'll do me the courtesy to conduct yourself as a dead man. I have submitted to your notions of honor long enough. You will now submit to mine."
Amazon has zero interest in making a deep or slow paced old school mmorpg.
They are after "highly watchable Twitch/stream" format - all of their games are designed with Twitch streaming in mind.
High Twitch appeal games are a requirement for AmazonGames - this is literally in their design docs, as deep Twitch integration is a core feature for all of their games. Amazon bought Twitch for a reason.
You know what streams really well - PvP action games.
Slow paced deep PvE games - the masses have zero desire to watch that on twitch because that type of gameplay is boring to watch.

Did they just ask, "How can we have the smallest target audience possible in an MMO?" Sounds like an MMO/survival hybrid.
"PvP seems to be at the very focal heart of the game and currently when you die you drop all of your gear which can then be looted by other players. This does mean that the gear your acquire is not very difficult to get, but there will be more powerful gear that offers a greater risk for a potentially larger reward. You might be more powerful and effective in combat, but if you die you will lose that powerful set of equipment."
Who else is extremely refreshed by this traditional approach to announcing incremental development steps to an upcoming MMORPG? Wow, I had no idea it would be so refreshing to not have 1,000 dev blog entries and transparent development.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising everytime we fall.
Win 10 lol wtf? They have an 8 year old CPU that came out years before Win 10 was a thing, and a several years old GPU, but we all need to have upgraded our older computers to the completely awful Win 10. Glad I'm not into this game anyway. I'll hold out with Win 7 as long as I can. Glad all my games still let me play with that.
