Re: rose-colored glasses (Q-Q--)

said by Adalicia:

The game, despite a plethora of faults, did some things right. And by right I mean really well. It was a good effort but too little to late. I have fond memories of my short time with it, just like Rift and Age of Conan and every other MMO that has come and gone (or remains in some semblance of what it was).

Balance and Progression > Story and Cinematics - who woulda thought?

Pure foolishness in my opinion. Game was dropped at the perfect time between expansions, they copied WoW almost word for word and had potential to keep a lot of WoW's subscriptions, that's where the "did some things right" ends however.

It's one of the largest gaming flops I've seen, keeping their budget in mind.

Balance was my biggest issue. The end game content that existed at launch and what was released not long after was actually enjoyable in my opinion though the standard "not enough to do at launch" argument obviously applied.

I thought questing was the most enjoyable of any MMO I've played, both solo and group, Flash Points and Operations were enjoyable, especially story heavy ones, the three launch Warzones weren't bad but man, that fucking PvP balance. Sweet shit Bioware had no god damn idea what the fuck they were doing. And yeah, the engine that game ran on was a bloody abortion. But, once again, I'll continue to lament over what could have been.
