    Let's not forget ...

    Atlas, you're the worst pirate game I've ever heard of.

    But you have heard of it!

  • How did you come up with your avatar/forum name and most pathetic in-game name you used?

    One thing that are more important are why people insisting on having numbers after the name?
    Because I am the 13th Blueturtle in a very exclusive group of blue hued turtles. 
    I keep thinking Game of Thrones:



    First of her name

    Stormborn of the Pacific Turtles

    Mother of Shelled Reptiles

    Leader of Blue

  • Child Like

    The problem with the OP is that it paints with an absurdly broad brush that makes discussion pointless.

    It's not some games but all games.

    It's not some people but all people.

    it's not sometimes but always.

    Something is not flawed, but is instead completely bad.

  • What is your DREAM MMORPG? List mechanics etc.

    It looks a lot like Everquest.
    Mine looks a lot like EverQuest Next. I'm not into rekindling the flames of the past. I'm done with this genre until something next gen. in every sense of the word launches. 
    Note that the OP called for a "dream" mmorpg - not a realistic, practical, likely to succeed or even ever to happen mmorpg. My dream mmorpg sits on the shelf next to my dream that Eva Green will have my babies.

  • EQ1 Vets Get in Here

    My concern is that you can't just add up a list of EQ-like features (corpse runs, no GPS map, no NPC quest indicators, etc.) and "presto" produce something akin to Everquest.

    That would be like adding up two lost travelers in Transylvania who meet a boisterous transsexual and expect The Rocky Horror Picture Show. There are hundreds of micro considerations that all have to add up to make the magic happen. It's not a tractor being assembled - it's a world.

    So my concern is it will have desired features but just not feel like EQ.
