  • Play for Free From Aug 9-15 + Earn Free Stuff by Watching the QuakeCon 2018 Keynote - Elder Scrolls

    I was just wishing the other day for a flaming wolf pet. Looks like my wishes are going to come true. :-)
    In August? That's nuts. You should be wishing for an ice wolf carrying a beer fridge... maybe next year,

  • How does Ashes of creation and Choronicles of Elyria has more votes than Crowfall and Camelot?

    Don't you just love these MMO penis measuring threads? Especially fun when it's all about penii in development with no set maturity date.

    Let's be reasonable, we can only support so many games....I play anywhere from 5-10 MMOs a month, im not going to pay a $15 sub for each one like we did in EQ....Also when I did pay a sub I felt I had to get my moneys worth so I basically played just that game...nwo I enjoy much more freedom and spend where I want.
    That kind of thinking and style of playing several MMOs at once is so alien to me I can't relate. 

    I can see gaming journalists doing it out of necessity but I don't see how spreading gaming time over 5-10 is even doable unless you're ultra casual in all of them.

    Just sounds like freedom to scatter your attention... I guess that's a freedom of sorts.
    Umm.

    I am not speaking for @Theocritus , but for me, a lot of MMO's are best taken in small chunks, no more then maybe 2 hours a day, before they just burn you out in short order.

    Unlike former Sub games that had all kinds of time gates mechanics to keep you logged or worse, to keep you waiting for things to happen, so as to force you to keep an active sub, the modern MMO landscape is very fast paced content but ironically progress feels surprisingly slow, so, burn out is very easy for players like me.

    So I'l move from MMO to MMO as I get worn out, and return as I like. With the way a lot of modern MMO's are set up where it's not a huge upward endless gear grind (Like: EQ and WoW) taking breaks even for months on end, has little impact on a characters power level or gear score.

    Again, to each their own on that.

    Different people will play different ways. Nothing right or wrong with it.
    You play 5-10 MMOs in a month? Weird

  • Does an M Rating make you More, Less, or No Less likely to play a mmorpg?

    Depends on whether it's prudish North Americans or perverted Europeans rating it. :trollface:

  • The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep - First Look - The RPG Files - MMORPG.com

    Yes I did play the original back in the mid '80s and can't wait for this one... and no I won't miss making my own maps with graph paper.
