[CVG] BioWare hopes The Old Republic 'will last for decades' - Page 8

post #71 of 81
It will die, probably sooner than BioWare hopes.

Don't get me wrong, they are a great studio, but I don't think anyone is capable of creating a game that will last decades, with the exception of World of Warcraft.

The combat from the videos just looks "slow", and the space stuff was lame because you can't just cruise, you only can do missions? (again assuming from videos)

So much stuff that if people just realized what the players want, they would have that invincible WoW killer.
There are only 2 things that can kill WoW, and both are exceedingly good at it as of late: Blizzard themselves and hardcore players. Now I know what you're thinking. "Didn't he mean casual players?" No because casuals will up and quit any game too difficult or annoying. It's the select hardcore that spend their time on the forums constantly complaining about anything unfair until they see the devs respond. I've seen too many patches, fixes, buffs, and nerfs that should have never see the light of day but Blizzard assumed with so many people complaining, there must be an issue.

That makes more sense
I saw that last night, watched it on youtube.

Dont you just love the "news?" If you hear them saying it when answering the qustion, it is very clearly a joke. Yet every single "news article" uses it as its headline and makes it seem like a fact.

2025?
No my poor deluded devs...
Two words.
PROJECT TITAN.
After 7 years, the only thing that will kill WoW is Blizzard.

Computer will change so much just in the next 5 years, that a game such as this won't matter in terms of 64bit games.

2025 is 14 years from now. and basically 13 from when the game will be released.

Everquest has been out since 1999 and is still going; that's 12 years right there. One year away from how long Bioware is estimating.

seems to me its going to have the same game mechanics that wow has in regards to combat, and im sure pretty much everyone at overclock.net have played wow for at least a year. TBH im not intrested in this game as from what ive seen it seems to be WOW with a Star Wars skin and deeper storyline, im looking for a real revoloution in MMO's.

It works both ways. Regardless of what the situation is at any time, people will complain about it.

A person thinks X is broken.
Blizzard patches/nerf/buffs X
B person thinks A was only whining and requests a return to the previous iteration of X
Blizzard restores X
A person complains again
Blizzard tries to find a compromise that suits both A and B

A, B, and C now complain because the game doesn't fit all of their criteria, most of which contradicts the other respective party's.

I lol'd just because a month ago people were saying that WoW was dying and RIFT was stealing all the subs, even though history has shown that many quality games failed to do any real damage to WoW's numbers. Now I see people saying RIFT has already died.
