Best possible graphics -> Of course

Permadeath -> After all the grinding, no way

Full loot -> If you're talking about player loot, hmmm well yeah maybe, if you're talking about NPC loot, how do you expect to have a player driven economy with full loot?

43243243 of professions -> With a good amount of skills, raise them as you want and you'll get the profession you want

You can literally own people. You can become a king/ruler. -> As long as you're the ruler I suppose?

You can go 1 vs MANY and many more -> As long as you're that one I suppose?

No one can change/nerf your character abilities/skills at any given will -> Nothing ca be perfect at launch, changes are always needed

Top of the art player housing -> Totally agree with you

Mini games -> Totally agree with you

It can't be more immersive than it is.

The stakes are higher and the loot is far more enjoyable.

One server supporting billions of players. -> Technology has its limits you know

It will be around and running until your character dies. -> Come on, be realistic

The attitude in "trade chat" is far different and mature since everyone knows your identity.

Oh and yea it's SANDBOX not themepark. Player driven economy, quests, etc.

The amount of players who are bored, unhappy and quitting it is below 0.1% (thats the suicide rate)

The endgame is still evolving. So many technologies, innovations and worlds unknown out there. -> Totally agree with you

Most refuse to believe that real life is a "game" cuz thats how addicted and fooled are by its reality and complexity.

0 BUGS -> Come on, be realistic

Animations are perfect. -> Of course

Combat involves FAR FAR more skills and gear also do matter a lot.

You can do anything you want well if your intelligent enough and at least once in your lifetime.

No LAG, DISCONNECTS -> No lag with best possible graphics, perfect animation and billions of peoples on 1 server??? Come on, be realistic

No BOTS, HACKS, CHEATS, EXPLOITS -> Totally agree with you

 

And there are 554324 of other features I could add here that make real life far more superior MMORPG than any of these hundreds of MMORPG's that been coming out over the last decade that refused to even add one of  those features that I named above.

Props to UO and SWG-Pre CU who at least had SOME of those features back like PLAYER housing and player economy.

About your real life stuff, if I would like to play something like real life then I'd turn off my computer and play my real life and that's what I'm doing most of the time anyway. One reson I play MMO games is to forget my real life for a little while, not to keep "playing" it, so it's important to not make it too much super ultra realistic. I want to feel like I actualy play a game, being able once in a while to do something reckless or even stupid without dying for good (or going to prison). A reasonable level of realism is good, too much realism is not.

Depends where you live to what MMO style it is like.

 

Europe is more themepark style.

I heard they keep all the permabanned PKs locked up. Then again if you're PKing for the right guild you may actually get gold and a profession.

There is NO miracle patch.

95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

Hope is not a stategy.

hello

7/04/12 6:58:52 PM#38

Some of the best critcisms I have read and some of my own.

 

You cannot choose your race, sex, creed( for the beginning and there is much to be said for the negative effects of indoctrination of the young), appearance etc.

 

Although you cannot choose your race, sex, creed and appearance the game and it's players are programmed for the most part to treat you according to an extremely slow changing rule book based on those stats. So you always start the game at varying degrees of advantage and disadvantage.

 

Starting country, family backgound and income, country laws, disparity and food and resource distribution are all random upon log in. Given that we are a products of our environments, biology and the resources we can work with, the in game opportunity for all players is far from fair.

 

The game is pay to win. With some longtime players having already monopolized corporations, resources, technologues, regions and countries. Those players utilize underhanded tactics to remain rich and powerful.

 

The games sordid history, unpleasant current state and grim future portrays the lack of a universal rule book, a missing moral code and absolutely no GMs or Devs. Although some players are always fucking harping at you about their invisible GM this or that, which is just another hassle on top of everything else. (so don't be surprised when you get ganked in one way or another, and not all people like open world PvP). 

 

Disparity and corrupt playstyles leads to manipulation of the economy, education and other systems in the game, which perpetuate the disparity and make the corruption easier for those at the top. 

 

 

I could go on and on, but I would rather go microwave some dinner, then check my facebook, and then play an MMO (which to be honest isnt the funnest game but I have my fingers crossed for the next patch >.< )

 

I love snails.
I love every kinda snail.
I just want to hug them all, but I cant.
Cant hug every snail.

Best possible graphics  Agreed.

Permadeath  Not as fun as you seem to think.

Full loot  See you in court.

43243243 of professions  43243211 of them involving kissing someone's ass.

You can literally own people. You can become a king/ruler.  Send me a postcard when you settle into your new palace.

You can go 1 vs MANY and many more  Health insurance coverage paid up, Rambo?

No one can change/nerf your character abilities/skills at any given will  Says the radiator grill of the vehicle that slams into you at some crosswalk because the driver had one too many martinis at lunch.  Tell me how well your badminton skills hold up while you're in traction.  And about that health insurance....

Top of the art player housing  So I don't have to live in a suburban shithole because it's the only thing my paycheck will support?

Mini games  You mean MMOs?

It can't be more immersive than it is.  Because defecating and venereal diseases are definitely hi-fidelity experiences.

The stakes are higher and the loot is far more enjoyable.  Except the house always wins, meaning someone has to lose.  Chances are it's you.  Your kid's college fund wasn't that important anyway.

One server supporting billions of players.  You'll be praying for some redundancy when the next 15km asteroid slams into the earth at 20km/s.  We're overdue, by the way.

It will be around and running until your character dies.  At which point, it's as useless as tits on a bull to me.

The attitude in "trade chat" is far different and mature since everyone knows your identity.  I'll make sure the drug dealer down the street knows that, the next time he smacks his junkie girlfriend around.

Oh and yea it's SANDBOX not themepark. Player driven economy, quests, etc.  Because I live to pick up my boss's drycleaning.

The amount of players who are bored, unhappy and quitting it is below 0.1% (thats the suicide rate)  Care to take a shot at the bored and unhappy rate there, sport?

The endgame is still evolving. So many technologies, innovations and worlds unknown out there.  And in your short lifespan, you'll only see the smallest fraction of them.... if you're lucky.

Most refuse to believe that real life is a "game" cuz thats how addicted and fooled are by its reality and complexity.  Way too existential for me.

0 BUGS  I'll never have to fill out another warranty card again!

Animations are perfect.  Perfectly rendered, but I could still do without seeing the 300lb chick in the string bikini, playing volleyball on the beach again.  Maybe it's too perfect.

Combat involves FAR FAR more skills and gear also do matter a lot.  Which mean few are going to be doing it.  Mostly just the under-educated with little in terms of future prospects.  But I hear they skill up fast.

You can do anything you want well if your intelligent enough and at least once in your lifetime.  A mulitude of intelligent people want to see the Earth from orbit.  Only the tiniest fraction ever will.  They're obviously just not trying hard enough.

No LAG, DISCONNECTS  Does that mean no more rush hour traffic?  Because I swear, time seems to slow down when your stopped dead on a freeway.  Maybe it's just me.

No BOTS, HACKS, CHEATS, EXPLOITS  So you'll give me half of your uncle's fortune, that's right now being held in a bank in Kenya, and all I need to do is wire transfer you $10,000?  Fuck it, where do I sign!!

 

And there are 554324 of other features I could add here that make real life far more superior MMORPG than any of these hundreds of MMORPG's that been coming out over the last decade that refused to even add one of  those features that I named above.

Tell yourself whatever you need to, in order to sleep at night.  But don't try to sell me reality like a used car dealer.

Props to UO and SWG-Pre CU who at least had SOME of those features back like PLAYER housing and player economy.

 OK.

Character creation sucks! You don't get to pick anything. Also, who thought the pooping feature was a good idea?
