I guess playing WoW for so long made me sick of the thousands of people just standing around a mailbox, or a AH employee, or a quest giver...
It felt as if i was just one of a thousand others doing the same cattle fed job.. (i know i was, but still..) In LoTRO, it at least felt as if you were an actual adventurer, not another user.
Honestly, i played WoW by my self for a good part of it, then w/ my wife and the guild.. So even if it is a MMO i still like the single player aspect of a game. -- Aelingil: I need to waste my time, my clients time and another techs time, just to fix a problem with you server & filters?

Its about time Elder Scrolls went Multiplayer. I think I would prefer just a normal multiplayer, but I will try out an MMO.
I actually like fantasy games so glad its a fantasy MMO that is coming out. I hope it can be good because I need my MMO fix and there just isn't much worth playing. I can't stand WoW, I enjoyed Rift but the wife has stopped which means my playtim is more limited, so a new one we can both play would be good.
I tried GW2 but it got boring very quick, it had the best non subscription mode of any game I've played, but unfortunately the game just didn't grip me. Some nice ideas in it though. I have no issue with a subscription game as I hate F2P models currently around and £10 or less a month really is nothing so I get value for money.
League of Legends is a prime example of a game that is free to play, zero ability for pay-to-win, is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and has development efforts like any other professional game out there.
Game development companies have refused to acknowledge the LoL F2P-not-P2W model. Even when they acknowledge it, they go with a stonewall-unless-you-pay model.
You have to give the game away, for free. You have to creatively let people pay for status symbols, like skins or other cosmetic things, not to unlock additional units, not to unlock additional functionalities of the game.
Too many people fucking up the F2P model and it makes it look bad.
That and there's too much garbage, or just the same shit we've already played over and over. -- A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. -MLK
It's a race to the bottom. The publisher expects a profit.
People are going to devour content extremely quickly. After the initial box cost development effort comes from what income source? -- flickr | 'Cause I've been waiting, all my life just waiting For you to shine, shine your light on me
I think that's why kickstarters have been so popular, to cut the publisher out. Many of them have been ruining games. -- A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. -MLK
is everyone on the rag this month? seems like everyone is a bit off and ornery lately
New year resolutions maybe? Not enough hugs..
BTW.. 'I AM'... damn you, i got excited reading you got in, logged into my home computer to check mail and see if i got in.
For those of us that did "Sign Up" on the right it gave you the "chance of getting in" with "Average / Above Average / ?? / ??" when you were filling out the form. How "Likely" were you to getting in? Mine was at "Above Average" my Wife's was "Average"..
I hope someone here gets in and can give screen caps of actual gameplay. -- Aelingil: I need to waste my time, my clients time and another techs time, just to fix a problem with you server & filters? Tech Joseph: Yes, you are correct.
