OP  11/16/11 2:57:20 AM#1

I know I can't be the only one feeling a bit dissatisfied with the direction this site is going. Point being for years it was the only real good MMORPG site but lately we've seen some very sad trends:

 

1. MMORPG.com buying into PR hype

This can be seen especially  with all pro P2W articles. I mean for sure there will be bigger numbers if the game is P2W at first but guess what these are just people downloading the game so the PR crap writting about 500.000, 600.00 or whatever new numbers are P2W game generates shouldn't count. The thing they should tell people is how much of this new players are going to stay or can be converted to rreal subscribers? 

Truth is not many so I would prefer a more behind the doors news article instead of a rewritten PR one.

 

2. Games that shouldn't be here

It all started with non MMOGs like League of Legends, Guild Wars went through Diablo III so whats next? You guys don't have unlimited personal so why not focus on the real MMORPGS instead of some DoTa and solo Actiongames? Reading the news and features ws one of my favourite partso f this site but lately its all filled with P2W articles, features instead of wellwritten and sometimes cynical articles targeted at MMOG  gamers.

 

Solution would be nice if could move some of the OT stuff to your affilate sites instead of polluting a MMOG only site with crap like P2W games, Actiongames and even news about FPS games such as BF or Cod.

Do you honestly think that it's mmorpg.com fault that the biggest news in the MMORPG world these days is Skyrim (for example).

 

I can't fault them for covering stuff that would probably interest the crowd that is interested in mmorpgs in general.

 

No comment about the PR hype. Just keep in mind that this site is a news outlet and thus it's normal that they distribute both official news and rumours.

I happen to agree with the general thrust of this post...although I might disagree on some of the finer points. About a month ago one of the forum moderators responded to another forum post about such a complaint and said they were working on it and we would be pleased etc. I have yet to see anything except more spam of more games I am completely uninterested in.

The site does have many of the games I am interested in and I would mainly like to have a way to simply filter out all of the crap such as free to play, asian ports, web browser games etc. Just as I know there are plent of people who would want to filter some of that stuff in.

Mainly this site needs better organization. It has grown to hold too much information to be truly usefull anymore as it takes too long to get to the good stuff.

MMORPG.com has always, just like any other publication out there, relied on what others say. If you believe that newspapers in general publish anything else but advertisements and propaganda, think again. Making a high quality article where you really have checked all the facts, heard all the opinions, and studied all the details is an extremely time consuming and slow task. A task only rarely performed. Its much cheaper and faster to just copy other peoples opinions.

MMORPG.com specifically probably depends upon money from advertisements. So they dont write stuff that would enrage the game companies. Thats just the way it is - with really every gaming magazine out there.

What really happened is probably you realized for the first time how the news work.

after spending 1000's of dollars playing mmorpgs. F2p is a welcomed sight. The fact that someone fro Biware would make a discussion like this is pretty funny to say the least.

If a new mmorpg comes out with any type of monethly fee, it better deviler, who think about a different payment model.

 

A game like SwtOR is pretty much dead with a monthly paynment model. Specifically if players rip through the content like it is mass effect 2.

 

reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

Admit nothing, deny everything and make counter accusations

I stopped reading and dismissed everything you wrote at "Guild Wars".

You are one of "Those". Therefore your perceptions on what MMO's are cannot be valid.

Good effort though.

People are talking about other games on this site.  Games that have high simularities to mmorpgs in one way or another, so the site chooses to feature them sometimes in small ways or other times in larger ones. 

 

Again, this is because there's a lot of discussion happening on THIS site about those games.  So they're trying to put forth some articles and content covering what they think their members would like. 

 

OH NO!  Make it stop!  No.  No.....thats not going to happen.    If you would however like MMORPG.COM to stop focusing on these types of games, you're going to have to convince the community at large to stop talking about them.  Good luck with that.

 

Ive been to some Italian food resturants and noticed they had burgers or corn dogs especially on the kids menu.  I dont freak out and yell, " HOW DARE YOU!  THATS NOT ITALIAN FOOD! ".  Point being the site does, and will probably always focus primarily on pure mmorpgs.  So relax.  Its fine.  A little side flavor thrown in isnt going to hurt anyone.

He who fights and runs away... misses out on the loot

11/16/11 3:13:45 AM#8

I think its much to do about nothing.  So other types of games get featured and games like Skyrim get a lot of air time in the Forums.  I don't think it detracts from anything.  If you don't want to read an article or look at a thread that isn't about MMOs don't look at them.  I believe that the vast majority of games fall into the MMO category so I think the site remains an MMO site.  People are a bit to nitpicky about things that aren't really don't matter to the vast majority of people.

They are coming for you!

Just for the people who know, Bioware are people who got fired from Bethesda. So i think they are little overwhelmed with how little people care about swtor right now. :)

 

GO SKYRIM !

reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

Well said. Everything I thought, but so much more eloquent :)

The original post is just... trite and sad. 

 

Also, I wonder why the original poster posted in this forum  and not Site Suggestion where it should ideally belong. Sad cry for attention much?

I LOL'd.

  Yeah all subscription based games are sure to die because you don't like the sub model..

 Better write some CEOs and let them know what a huge mistake they are making!!

Skyrim represents what a lot of people think is missing from recent MMORPG's. I think it's worth discussing this and what we like about it and the technical hurdles in porting these ideas to MMO's.

No kidding. 

I don't play Skyrim (average 3 year old PC, and waiting for better mods) but I was thinking...

 

Currently, I am subbed to AoC, levelling to characters (for the first time) and having a blast. I know that will change at 80 where the game becomes a typical MMO with endless grinds and raiding till your eyes bleed. I've done that before for 2 years on WoW and I have no interest in it. 

 

I also get my gaming high from playing DotA (waiting on Dota 2). 

 

If I really set my mind to it, and decided to prioritise, I could play a SRPG like Skyrim, and unsub from AoC but still get my MMO highs from that game.

 

Not to turn this into a sub vs. F2P thread but I think what MMORPG doing (featuring other games) is fine. 

"Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."

Talking about Skyrim is fine and yes it has many many features MMORPGs are lacking these days but "features, news" should cover MMORPG things or at least have some nice discussions related to it. The article "5 reasons why Skyrim should be a MMOG" was a good start and its fine.

I'm talking more about games like BF, CoD, Diablo III, League of Legends and Guild Wars I all of them clearly are not MMORPGs and tons of other sites are covering them but they don't cover MMORPGs, thats my point.

I-Return if all you can do is trolling find another thread and no I don't have a youtube account, cause I'm not signing up for any services shady companies such as google are "offering".

 

This site is still the best but the trend does worry me, thats all.

MMOrpg is still the website people check daily for info about mmos, and now, not only mmos.. wich is great.

Do they want to reach a wider audience? I bet their investors would, and most of the MMOrpg comunity too.

I think CORPGs like Guildwars and Star trek online still belongs on the site. While calling them MMOs might be worng they are close enough.

Otherwise we could have a discussion of what exactly a RPG game is as well. Some MMOs aren't exactly MMORPGs, APB is a good example but there are plenty of others that really are more FPS or action games instead.

Games like Diablo 3 and Skyrim on the other hand does not belong here, Diablo 3 is a regulqar online action game, it have nothing to do with MMOs and Skyrim even less.

I suggest that creating a new department on the page with games that aren't exactly MMOs but of interest, but they should be separated from the MMOs to avoid confusion. If you are only interested in MMOs you can just stay away then.

As for the pay2win stuff, I really don't agree with you. Why don't you start your own blog here, and maybe get a few like minded people to do the same? It is a more constructive solution to get your views out.

Plus fact that a huge chunck of community here like Elder Scrolls series for years now so why should MMORPG.COM not pay attention to Skyrim if they see alot of registered like and play Skyrim. Plus fact its a RPG and similar to a mmorpg but solo game, so obvious discussions is logic result.

I remember many years ago when Phantasy star online also was introduced here we had same discussion. But these days many games similar to PSO are now part of this site i dont realy have problem with this.

I wish they payed more attention to SOLO RPGs on this site and chance name to RPG&MMORPG.COM :)

I don't have an issue with that, but I think they should have a specific part of the forum for games like that, mixing them with the MMOs are kinda confusing for new people and a bit messy.

There are separate sections - most of the Skyrim threads are in General Gaming or a sub-section of that.  The problem is that on the front page and the Real-time page, it shows all threads.  It would be nifty if we could customize what sections it showed.

Heck, I'd be fine if I could just uncheck General Gaming - and leave the rest of General Discussion and Developers Corner checked.

I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?
