Hey guys. I know it’s a little odd, but I’m sure you’ve been seeing the news links on the front page and the forums that lead to UnboundGamer, RTSGuru, and FPSGuru. You might be wondering: why are they doing this?
It’s kind of obvious though, isn’t it? Our network is growing and MMORPG.com is still the largest kid in a four-person family. We will try to maintain that most of our cross-network promotion links have at least some interest to MMO fans as we know them. Namely, RPG aspects, online game aspects, and the like will be what we “news” on the site.
In the next 9 months, we will be doing a site design overhaul, with a beta URL for you all to check out and offer feedback on. Part of this will be better news visibility and better organization of said news. This will hopefully mean you can sort what kinds of news you see with dropdown boxes. At least, that’s our goal. When this happens, you’ll be able to customize your feeds, and it will be clearer than ever what game, genre, and so forth you’re seeing news for.
I know these are all scary changes, but trust me… this is all for the better of the site and the network that’s trying its damnedest to bring you the most interesting and specialized in MMO coverage (as well as RTS, FPS, and Mobile now too). As always, please feel free to send suggestions directly to me at editor at mmorpg dot com or use our suggestions forum from the main forum root. Believe it or not, MikeB is always reading those and we’re always aware of what you guys want. It’s just a matter of feasibility and time, and I think we’ll all be very happy with the plans we have in store for 2012.
Not to mention… holy cow are there some awesome games coming that we can’t tell you about yet. Just, well, trust me. That’s what matters most: THE GAMES. And you won’t be disappointed in that regard.
