I may be naive but what is with all the hate for Tabula Rasa, I played the game all the way from early CB to live and enjoy the heck out of the game. It launch was not perfect but seldom ever are. But the game play is different than any other MMO out there. It's combat is innovative and a refreshingly new way to play an MMO. It has random dynamic encounter system constantly fighting of waves of mobs.
So why the hate, from main stream media, and gaming magazines all of them love to rap on TR, I am no fanboy, it has its bad points and while I have an active sub I only play every so often when the mood strikes me. But this is not due to anything huge or hate worthy simply that I play so many titles I wander from one to the next week by week. I have been taking a tour through Free 2 Play games recently and they are interesting and fun. I have 2 wow accounts mostly for me and my wife to play together and we do play that a few times a week also. I used to have 2 TR accounts but my wife started taking the kids to classes and such so she didn't have time to play anymore. But she will jump on my account and play there when she can.
Recently while watching G4TV the hosts were bashing TR but not for anything specific just as some general kind of well at least its not TR. Which made me wonder why. I don't know anything about the game that made it a huge failure. Maybe I missed something or have not paid enough attention. The community is active and there are always a bunch of people on playing when I am. So it can't be something like that. I know the community is not your typical RP community which is given since the play system is very FPS oriented. And group instances tend to be a rush to "kill everything before someone else" mad fest. But in itself is interesting in its own way.
The game is different so i would expect many things to be different. But I would sure appreciate it if someone could enlighten me about the reason for TR being used in such a general term. I would expect of say FURY which in my eyes was a massive failure.
Anyways please share your ideas or opinions even if I think they stink at least I will know why the haters hate.
