  • Your Favorite Class

    I'm seeing a pattern though. It seems like some of the more preferred classes tended to be in older games where classes had out-of-combat functions/balance that made them more interesting/flavorful. I'm interested to see if that continues.
    Yep, that pattern is clearly there, simply because nowadays classes/roles are slowly dissolving in the cesspool of zerging. Everyone should be good for everything, and not too specialized or different, otherwise the kiddies gathering a mob with torches and pitchforks, and protesting for a nerf or balance :smiley:

    There was a nice thread before about how the support classes lost their weight and/or disappeared from newer games, the captain and loremaster @cameltosis mentioned above were used in that thread as examples, both are just shadows of their former states. But at least they are still in the game and still playable - unlike a bunch of games without any real support role.

    In an another (similar) thread the topic was class interdependency, an another aspect almost totally gone nowadays. It is the era of massively solo player online :wink:


    Speaking of massively (and since both camel and myself mentioned LotRO classes)  http://massivelyop.com/2018/01/15/lotro-players-pull-off-massive-multi-day-winterstock-concert/  Minstrel class at its best.

  • MMORPG.com's Best of 2017 Awards - General Awards

    :+1:  to @cameltosis ; (except the Wildstar part, while may not be the most underrated, it surely has a rep far worse than it would deserve)

    Destiny 2 is NOT a hybrid mmo, neither a quasi mmo, nor an mmofps or any other made-up terms its fans try to staple onto it. Even if the list... errr and in here I'd :+1:  @Scot too, a "list" of 5, on 3 pages? :wink:  so even if the list is "General awards", and you really want to put it on there somewhere, then say the best pew pew (there were betters imo), or the best console port (no console ports are good), or anything you want, just not this hybrid mmo bullpoo. Thx. :smiley:

  • GOG Winter Sale

    Just a bump, there's a new giveaway during the sales, so go and grab your free Oxen.
    Or maybe Oxenfree.
    One of those two :sunglasses:

  • Looking for MMO

    There's only 3 solo class quests, at level 15, 30 and 45 (which is technically 50 but can start at 45 and the first part is about collecting unique drops, so it's better to headstart :wink: ), there's a 4th at 58-60 but for that grouping is possible.
    There's also a couple non-grouped quests, but duo is an exception for that in most cases (technically solo, can't go with 3 or more friends, but can if you're only a duo).

    All of those combined is maybe just a few % of the total quest number. The vast majority of the quests and instances in the game is available for duo.
