Someone needs to write a history of MMORPGS. People use terms like "old school" which means different things to different people. When someone says it they might mean vanilla WoW era. Someone else might think pre WoW era. When I say old school FFXI I mean pre TOAU, which added hybrid classes, instances, etc. When most people say old school FFXI they mean pre Abyssea. A lot has slowly changed and not everyone is aware of it. Also, a history of the changes might help explain why so many degenerate games are made today.
Edit: The history should describe when certain features were added or became standard in MMOs and their function. For example, when and why were instances added? When were world monsters removed? Why were these things done? What need did they address or what problem did they fix.
