  • Gdemami said: Deivos said: Baseless jabs that fail to account for the fact that I can and have backed up my statements with actual reference really do nothing other than stroke ego. Considering your place in all this so far, why would yo…

  • nariusseldon said: MMOExposed said: There are many ways to keep progression while getting rid of boring grind. It's a creative process. But most developers are very conservative with the game development. So we get the same old same ol…

  • nariusseldon said: Deivos said: Any other pointlessness you want to bother me with? I don't know that you view providing evidence, even if they exists, of your claims is "pointless". I guess you just hope that people will just …
  • Wizardry said: Game developers don't pay lawyers to write those TOS..EULA's for no reason. I love the part that always says your game experience MAY change.They know it will change and put in words that TRY to officially allow the developer to …
  • nariusseldon said: Deivos said: If PvP were the goal I have plenty of better opportunities for conversation than that which I choose. Correcting bullshit is the only actual goal most of the time. and you should be intelligent e…

  • PvP is not itself the fault that leads to a game's demise. Even OWPvP can work. We've seen reasonable examples of it in the likes of Lineage and EVE. More so we can look to the implementation and often faulty rules to be the issue. The reason those…
  • LynxJSA said: Golden Tee simply went the other direction, charging $3-$4 per session to cover the cost of the session. That's really neither here nor there, as the design if Golden Tee is drastically different since it is created for a competitive,…
  • filmoret said: But overwatch is not any better.  What are they offering that this game isn't?  So why pay a pricetag on a game when you can play a free version of the same game with better features? A bunch of lore very vaguely connected…
  • intellectual said: If they don't want reason then there's not a whole lot you can do about it. He obviously isn't interested in reading the sources or conversation beyond what he thinks he might be able to bluff his way through. So why bother i…
  • I can't do much about that. Either he learns or he doesn't. That Loktofeit seems to have resigned themselves to a trolly cheerleader doesn't really help though. EDIT: Guess he did get get his other account banned for a reason though.

  • If they only did one server type then they'd have to make a much more robust ruleset and PvP/flagging system in order to keep things working fine. Dividing the servers into multiple types is the easier solution because it separates out groups by fa…
