  • Thanks for the replies. I checked out some recent Tristan PvP vids on youtube and found some FW tristan fits, looks like I'll go that way and try to get in a FW corp asap. I won't be able to completely support my PvP this way, will I? Should I be …
  • Thanks for the reply. I'll avoid the ECM blackbird for my first few months Maybe I'll just go for the straight up FW PvP. The whole passive FW did look boring from everything I've seen, I agree, but I figured it must've been pretty disruptive to s…
  • The fact that this game was GOTY PC goes to show how bad of a year it was. Let's hope Wildstar, EQN/L, and some of the other revive PC gaming from its life support status.
  • Originally posted by BearKnight He's talking about the era of good MMOs where hard work == actual fun things to do. You did relatively hard to do tasks that not 99% everyone else could do just given time.  That era will never return simply due …
  • Completely agree with the EQL/EQN stuff. I'm hoping I'm wrong, because it seems like it'd be a fun game and community if it actually maintained enough players to feel like a living breathing MMO and not all the vacant junk that there is today beggin…
  • EVE fills a niche that other dev houses aren't willing to compete with because they'd rather have a significantly lower chance at  WoW one-size-fits-all MMO cash than a higher chance at satisfying a select group specifically like EVE does. WoW won'…
  • OP makes all valid points. I've played SOE games since SWG and that whole fiasco. Smedley is an anomaly, truly. Usually when a company has bad management and something as terrible as with what happened with SWG happens, there's a big shakeup of tho…
  • I don't really care if Wildstar kills WoW. What's important is that this isn't another MMO that feels like a single player game because of poor game design that lacks consideration for the social component. Nowadays the devs either go the Raph Kos…
  • The MMO industry really doesn't care about the typical MMORPG.com poster who is jaded and tired from their 'mmo experience'. They're looking for the next player. The business model is to find the next new person to mmo's, get as much cash out of th…
  • The industry went away from subscription models and toward FTP because the profit potential is much higher. GW2 is a master of this. They have their new event running, and everyone wants to run it to get the latest skins and blah blah (skins are ba…
  • They should give the expansion for free to the people who originally bought the game before it went f2p.
  • Originally posted by ray12k people are getting bored. every game released has the same walk through quest. same structure its what the people asked for and now they are complianing ..... I don't understand why people are surprised that they are bo…
  • Thanks for the replies. Has crafting become worth the time yet? When I played, I perceived it as something not with a very worthwhile "return on time", meaning you're competing with the whole server on the auction house, and the only gate is time, …
  • When Raph Koster speaks, MMO vets listen.
  • Originally posted by MMOExposed How is it now a sandbox? You can build on the world and change it from what I read. I'm bowing out of this thread. I'm already bored by the marketing they did on twitch today. But I do love your sig image. Thanks fo…
  • Originally posted by MindTrigger Originally posted by mos0811 Originally posted by Foomerang I like Smedley's definition of a sandbox even if it is different from my own. But I can also see how they will exploit the hell out of their cash shop …
  • Originally posted by DoomsDay01 Originally posted by Buttdart Anyone who watched twitch today or has been paying attention at all, knows this is not a sandbox the way Smedley was hyping it. He had the audacity to sing the praises of EVE and spe…
  • Originally posted by Foomerang   Originally posted by Drakynn I agree about the cash shop but we can only hope it's fair.   However as for sandbox...well they showed you can build things and destroy things and alter the world....that's p…
