Edit: I've come to a realization... I seem to have been using that expression (lowest common denominator) a LOT nowadays... Sad.

Nah, it's a good turn of phrase! I agree with the whole appealing to kiddies with big flashy weapons... I don't understand it? Why do kids love all that stuff? :/

I remember when playing WoW, you didn't get any big flashy weapons until around level 35! With your own class specific quest to get a weapon. Was a really nice touch! Surprisingly enough, not many people even knew about it!

Used to get stopped all the time, with people going "Where'd you get that weapon from :O".. and I'd be like, oh it's this big secret, let me show you!

And I'd spend like 4 hours just helping someone collect those ears from Stranglethorn Vale... hahaha!

Rofl! Yes...! Then later that day, you feast your eyes upon the very first PURPLE item... and you're like, "OH MY GAWD" it's 100gold on the AH how will I ever afford that...!

I would say EvE online is the only MMO worth playing now adays but even then i find it hard to stay on alot because its really slow paced and takes a while to get to know what you wanna do. Its incredibly amazing if you have the patience and willpower to learn, but with GW2 coming out sometime in the year i think im just gonna wait for that, as much as i wanna play an MMO right now lol.

I guess I'm going to have to suck it up that Guild Wars 2 doesn't have everything I'm after... It should do for now though I guess... shame we have to wait so long! Tera looks like a Korean bore-fest doesn't it? Urgh

Play eve for 3 months and then tell me that any other game is worth playing. Seriously, until any other mmo actually has sovereignty mechanics (an actual goal besides gear and level) then no other mmo will keep my attention for any length of time. Yes, Eve is slow paced, after a while you begin to appreciate why the game is paced like it is. Plus the two expansions a year just keep making the game exponentially more vast than any game ever.

Playing Eve for a week... every 1 skill I train nowadays takes a week or more. lol

to start EvE, i'd be about 3 years, 8 months, 16 days, 9 hours and 58 minuets behind you in skill proficiency biggrin.gif i don't really know i'd be alive long enough to catch up to you or be able to fight you on equal footing biggrin.gif

one of the main reasons why i never went back to EQ1, i'd be about 3000 to 5000 AA's behind any raiding guild players and EQ w/o raiding = boring biggrin.gif

one of the major flaws of any established MMO is the achievement system built into gaming eventually becomes a big barrier to entry for new players. it's not that people don't want to play it, it's that they aren't willing to invest the vast amount of time (years) required to even catch up to current players. regardless of skill, a bb gun and a wet t shirt is not going to kill someone using a plasma encapsulated antimatter rail cannon and a fully decked out mech armored suit with a tier 10 AI assisted anti projectile system and a level 8 vector logix plasma shield system biggrin.gif

in another word, they'd rather play some newer game where they are on a more equal footing then someone with 25 billion ISK in the bank biggrin.gif

Well, that is my gripe with E.V.E, it's completely overwhelming! Such a huge learning curve... That even all of the isk in the game couldn't make up for!

Which is a good and a bad thing. This was also the reason I played World of Warcraft... I'd already put so many hours into it... Got so much gear, that no other MMO could compare to unless I was willing to put the same amount of time into!

I really wanted to like Age of Conan, but there was always a lack of players, content and armour, so vast that any level below 60 was obsolete, completely unnecessary, you may as well start off at that level lol!

To be brutally honest, I think levelling is a stupid system... Sure it's a great way of showing progression, but what happened to, if it's sharp it will hurt... Regardless?

I'd love to be a creative director for an MMO, granted everyone probably would... And they think they'd be better at it too!

I think the main issue here is money, it's not about the game anymore, it's basically a business!

If love to get the best programmers, design teams, testers, etc... Available and come up with an epic medieval based MMO, no magic, no silly guns, just brawn, castles, bows, crafting, smithing, mining, wood chopping etc...

Like minecraft with Crysis graphics hahaha!

Anyway enough of that, I'm tempted to play Aion's FTP, anyone playing this at the moment?
