  • The game had some good smooth combat, but the people running it are morons. The only way to advance at a snail pace, is to spend a little money and level up leadership-toons, with a browser, checking it every 4 hours or so through the day. Now they'…
  • (note: i cap instead of quote, sorry. traditionally cap=scream... i'm not screaming, just finding capping easier) 1. Content that takes a long time to figure out. Rift has HK, there are a handful of guilds per server that have done it after months…
  • Originally posted by Cthulhu23 Originally posted by Zylaxx Originally posted by sapheroith Originally posted by maji I did play it because it seemed comfy. The graphics and sounds are fine, it's mostly bug free and got …
  • Skyrim.... FUS-RO-DAH ! Came back though after that 2-mo diversion... I've played 5+ MMOs over last 10 years... Rift kicks A. The class/build system is the best I've ever seen, (well, for me at least; I enjoy figuring-out how to play as much as …
  • On the subject of less choice in MMOs, my son showed me some f2p mmo the other day where you literally clicked the quest in the quest-log, and your toon pathed and ran to the next phase automatically?!  unbelievable. Better to just watch a movie (2 …
  • Cool discussion... I read most of it...A few people nailed it for me. Why gank? BOREDOM.... Let's summarize typical MMO experience: I have this avatar in this virtual world. I'm running around killing these virtual boars that walk the same path, (…
  • Originally posted by Eindrachen As far as saying we feel nothing based on what we see in a video game, that's sad.  Not because I think it makes others heartless or anything retarded like that.  I think it is sad because it remains one of the reason…
  • Originally posted by Yunbei . For the human mind it is not possible to negate such things you see, but the conscious can rationalize them, push those emotions away. Though it is kinda odd as why someone would do it. If you feel a movie or a game is …
  • A good read... thanks. Of course it's all just a game... but I kind of like the idea of trying to make it more; a virtual lab where you make virtual decisions and see and feel what it's like. I think that's part of immersion, something games need …
  • The earth rests on the back of a giant turtle, and the turtle lives between two large perfect breasts, some blond hair hanging down with maybe a river of beer somewhere, and .... [ahem]  yep. bewbs! Gotta love em!! They influence all of my pur…
  • Go here: www.warcraftrealms.com/realmstats.php for a rough ball park. The date that a server was started is on there too.
  • I resubbed a few months ago to play TBC and WOTLK.... WOTLK > TBC. Better environments, background music, more varied quest types. There were a few fair areas in TBC, but once it got to that neon blue stuff, I had reached 70 and skipped the res…
  • Where do I sign up ?!!!    Definitely good news. We (myself and 3 sons) tried out the demo... it was ok. Was it worth 60/mo?  hell no. Will we all 4 play on day one of F2P?  hell yes. Might even throw them some money later on. An inspired mov…
  • @ bobfish... "Therefore the MMO would need to triple the number of players it has to generate the same income that it had from subscriptions."....    that's exactly what I said above. However, there may be some other things to consider as well... …
  • Originally posted by GoldenDog I'd like to actually see some numbers if anyone has some.  Like how much in USD or Euros are we talking about with a F2P?     Be sure to read the article linked in the OP post... That's the point; some game (pi…
  • Originally posted by bobfish Micro transactions are not as profitable as subscription games, nowhere so, but they do provide access to a larger market. I'm surprised subscription prices are as high as they are, I mean once you've paid back the de…
  • Just saw an article where an MMO shared some numbers.... www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/239327/How-much-does-a-F2P-microtran-MMO-bring-in.html
  • lol.... name calling is just the last ditch effort of someone without any kind of reasonable argument. The guy (or gal?) was just pissed that hunters (and all the dps classes in the world) kill stuff faster and level faster. Why spend 10 minutes wit…
  • I love immersion... but I'm just not feeling it in the MMO genre anymore. Could be that I'm jaded and just filled to the brim (4-5 MMOs over the last 5 years myself). But it all feels so much like the same thing over and over. And it's stretched... …
