    It's kind of sad that housing came back in to popularity in MMOs, only because publishers realized it was another cash shop lever they could play with.   Along with having the added benefit of being another game play time requirement/manipulation lever.

    Its weird that SWG had amazing open world housing, town building, resources harvesting, even had a mayor job, and it all was grand and didnt "kill the servers" or cause any major issues ( until the game started dying and they hadn't implemented a good decay system yet ), yet games these days that try to implement housing have to put it on separate servers, therefore really killing the whole idea in the first place.

    who the hell needs instanced housing
    Me :D

    I will take instanced housing over the open world mess any day.

    The exception being an MMO where the devs do something against the hideous rampant building EVERYWHERE (a la Ultima Online, where you couldn't even properly move through the "wilderness" half the time due some house blocking you) and that the game world is big enough that those who aren't there on day one aren't completely fucked over.

    Or a hybrid system like BDO's. The houses are there, visible in the world, but the interiors are instanced.

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    I think I'm going to pass on this game or at the very least wait until I see some kind of positive feedback from this game when it launches. From what I've seen, it looks like a Bless clone. I think there was even a Lazypeon video detailing it, but I can't find it. Cryy did some coverage on the topic as well (link below).

    Same, it was an ugly shitshow in UO and in SWG.  

    I thought that Tibia did a cool thing, where they would have areas in the open world set aside, and you competed in an auction for the property.  Not everyone could have a house, but not everyone needed one either.  Not just that, but the housing "districts" were quite large so there was not an extreme shortage of them either.  

    Perfect solution to having open world while also not destroying the open world.

    Will this be as terrible as Archeage?! I can see companies seeing the money that game made from all of the whales when it launched and think they can make it right now!

    In case some don't  realize,all these systems when added to games requires more servers to run the game,that is why games like Wow don't have housing and other games are missing ideas we would expect to see in a mmorpg.
    They like to create sub programs that can run throughout and easily just add inputs into the triggers that make for a couple thousand identical quests we see so often.So seeing an idea like this with housing and plots/gardening etc etc,brings a smile to my face because it is a whole separate set of commands that needs it's own system to run.

    This is the kind of stuff i look for that says and you hear me say it a LOT>>>.EFFORT.



    How does ESO manage to sell all those houses? Or is it different because all of them are instanced?

    The only housing I ever really liked in a game was Skyrim and I didn't even use them all that much. SWG was good but I ended up just using those for storage. I just can't think of a great use for housing in games.

    Reply to Octagon7711... since the board lost my reply button again (yes I'm logged in).

    ESO housing is completely instanced. I'm not even sure you can see the homes in the world, you just tp there. The smallest homes are single/double rooms, the biggest are castles and full estates with outdoor areas.

    Obviously meant the farming, not the cash shop. I'm only clarifying since you decided to quote me.

    I see that stuff and would be auto delete forever.

    Anyone knows me,i am quite a harsh critic but as of right this minute,i would play this mmorgp over any other ,except FFXi lol.
    So as long as they don't screw it up ,i could see myself playing this at some point down the line,if i am still alive...sigh.Not a knock on the timeline,i do have serious health issues that is maybe why i am so impatient demanding a AAA mmorpg,tired of waiting.

    I see sooo much change in the way people think and design games now a days,i have pretty much come to the conclusion i will simply not like 99% of the games coming out,they do not relate to how i want to play games.Too bad because back in the 80's/90's i had VERY high hope for all of the game genres,i thought i was going to see games 10-50x better than what i am seeing.
