  • Removing text chat in favor of voice chat in MMOs?

    No. Voice chat ruins the game for me. I understand using it for raids and pvp and the like but if that was the only method of communication I would not play that game.
  • Elder Scrolls Online: PTS Is a Growing Concern

    "Was he wrong? Does the community have some responsibility in making sure the updates are fluid and well tested?"

    No. the community is not responsible.

    EverQuest "Next" - Being a longtime fan of the EQ series, I couldn't wait. I even purchased the "big" package for that horrid EverQuest Landmark... After years of waiting... CANCELED.

    Lineage Eternal - Couldn't wait for this game. A top-down hack-n-slash that's a full-blown MMO?! Sweet! After years of waiting... DEVELOPMENT TEAM HAS RECENTLY / COMPLETELY BEEN REPLACED...

    Bless Online - Where are the NA Open World MMOs? I have to rely on Korea to produce them... I couldn't wait for Bless Online... After years of waiting... CANCELED.

    Lost Ark - After a long time of waiting... Any news? SIGH.
    You friend, have what I call, a "bad picker".

    I usually say this to people about relationships. You know, the people who consistently pick people who aren't right for them but they just keep doing it for "some reasons".

    Luckily for you these are just games.

  • Five Things MMO Gamers Should Stop Complaining About - The List at MMORPG.com

    donger56 said:

    Reading this trash makes me wonder if this guy has ever played an MMO in this decade. What a condescending rant of idiocy this is. This looks like something that belongs on Reddit or something. I understand you make a living being a shill for these greedy dishonest developers, but you could at least try not to suck up every chance you get. There are so many legitimate complaints about the current state of the MMO genre, you could write a book on it. "stop complaining" is hardly a solution or the answer to anything. Western civilization was built because people complained about things like tyranny, high taxes, and oppression so I'll just keep complaining when I see bullshit happening, but thanks for the advice anyway. What a noob....

    It's a part two piece to the "Things Players SHOULD whine about". It isn't a condescending rant of idiocy".

    Though in truth, some of his points have merit. "Gamerz" don't come across as stable, reasonable lot as they rant and rave whenever they get the chance. There is no way this genre is going to gain legitimacy if gamers constantly come across as whining, hateful brats.

    Not liking something is one thing, completely acceptable. But the way many express themselves makes it seem like the genre is filled with brats and man-boys/women-girls.
  • Why are so many MMO games filled with toxic players ?

    They're immature people (mentally, not physically) who have no lives except for their gaming lives.  In the real world they're No-one, but in their gaming world they're Someone.  They do the petty, spiteful things to people in online games that others do to them in real life.  They're nobody you'd want to be friends with in real life!

    Ah yes - lets stereotype and put everyone into a nice little package we can label.

    I game with RL friends who are the core of a guild Ive been in for the last 17 years.

    We are a competitive guild that plays a lot of PvP games, and we talk smack and cause hell for players in games at times.

    The hardest griefer in our guild is a double PhD in physics and molecular biology, also one of the genuinely nicest down to earth people I know, who goes and gives food and cooks for homeless downtown on weekends.

    people do stuff in games because they CAN, thats it. 

    So what you're saying is he's actually a scummy person when he can get away with it but when he can actually be called on it he's all pinnacle of the community?

    People do scummy things/are toxic because they are scummy and toxic. There are soooo many people who don't harass others, who aren't toxic because "that's who they are".

    That guy just hides behind his little mask and let's his true self out because there's no one to stop him. I'd buy the "good guy" image if he actually acted like a good guy when it would be so easy to act "like a bad guy".

    I think history is filled with people who act all "great" only to discover that they have a completely different side when no one is looking.

    I hope they do shut it down. That way, we can have another attempt at a fresh Star Wars MMO.

    I don't think they would.

    I don't see any western company making a high budget mmorpg for a very long time. Why would they? The chance of them making something that people will like (and I'm not talking about early star wars galaxies peeps) is just as iffy as any mmorpg.

  • $900k is Not Enough, $2-3M More Needed to Complete the Game - Chronicles of Elyria News

    I'm really hating these companies ...

    "It likely doesn't surprise anyone, but between employee salaries, contract fees, medical/dental insurance, license fees, software purchases, rent, other insurances, internet fees, hosting fees, computers and furniture, and taxes, the money won't last forever."

    Here's a thought, figure this out BEFORE you kickstarter

    This isn't that hard, we forecast costs all the time.
  • RUMOR: Strategic Options Include Possible Sale of CCP - EVE Online - MMORPG.com

    "exploring strategic options" to remain solvent"

    Well that's never good is it?

  • (theory) The MMO community overall is driving more and more people to want a solo only experience

    There's some truth to that. I can say that I try to keep toxic people in my life to a minimum (if not try to eliminate them all together.

    I don't do pickup groups/raiding because I'm here to play a game and have fun, but in a more casual "I don't care if we win/lose" sort of way.  Not to say I don't play my all but if we wipe we wipe, it's all good.

    To many people too tightly wound about video games not to mention some of the horrendous chat that comes through or people who take advantage of others.

    So at this point I'm more inclined to play with the few friends who play these games and if that is a small private server game like Conan Exiles or Dark and Light then so be it. Life is too short to put up with nonsense.

    I didnt like it much. 

    Was bored to tears, but I dont like long TTK games at all, so not a good fit for me.

    The game is technically done well, it plays well it looks good, but just not a good fit fot me where it counts - gameplay.

    Oh well, differrent strokes and all that
    I think that's where I'm the opposite, I love long "time to kill" games (I am assuming that's what that means?).

    I loved killing Bams in Tera with just my lancer. The battles feel more epic which is something I miss from most mmorpg's.
