 I think quite a few AAA mmos have moved on a hell of a lot and are a far better proposition than WOW now and certainly offer more content per $ invested by a mile.  My question however is  why you would pay in advance when you have no idea what they are actually making - and especially considering their recent track record.  Imagine if everyone simply bought the next expansion without looking - bingo complacency/greed.

Well from a content / $ value perspective, yes there is plenty out there that's a better value. It's a sub, though, so it's anomalous these days. I was joking about having it pre-ordered, but  will as soon as they announce it this year.

Repopulation is a joke I was an swg vet for over 10 years how dare they claim its like swg.

 

You recommend Divergence Online and call The Repopulation a joke. 

*checks page URL to make sure it isn't  http://moc.GPROMM

 

.

Is Divergence Online even a thing? Last I remember was that it was defunct.

I have similar settings on my laptop, with an AMD processor, and I ran ESO on it on high settings. I generally played it mid-low strictly for performance reasons, but I could run it pretty well on mid to high. Haven't played it recently, but I think you should be ok.

As thread states this is a great time for someone else to repeat what WOW did ...

it already happened and is much bigger than WoW.

Its called League of Legends you might have heard of it.

LoL is not a MMORPG ................you know it isnt so why add this useless post

Everyone knows its not a MMORPG.

That's a the point you are missing.

It's pretty clear what masses want now - obviously not a MMORPG.

 

Its pretty clear what the OP was asking for and describing in Traditional MMORPG now bugger off and quit derailing threads with useless posts ..


 

 

OP is asking for impossible things - there is no new "classic mmorpg" that will ever have 12 million active players.

Pointing this out is thread derailing?

Analog phones are making a comeback - that's what the OP is saying about a new mmorpg being as big as wow

Not
gonna
happen

Something new will dethrone LoL and Dota2, it won't be a mmorpg it will be something new, a new genre.

 

Impossible is a degree of difficulty ..

 

  Nowhere does the OP mention 12 million subs , on the contray only to capture a signifgant market and control it , becoming billion dollar revnue .. which is not as out of reach as you may think noone thought FF!$ could have the success it has grabbed to this point and it is growing and holding a sigifigant share of the market .... Not far fetched to see it continue to grow and capture more ..( for etc..)

  Now again analogs phones have nothing to do with this discussion as the OP asks for opinions on Tradidtional  MMORPG being able to control a large share of the market for extended time .. So again stop introducing content like phones that contribute nothing to this conversation ... good day ...

 

Look what was quoted Great time for someone to do what WOW did - WoW had 12 million active players at one point. That's what I was referring to. Also my point stands no mmorpg will ever outdo WoW in terms active players - something will but it won't be a mmorpg. (Case in point LoL did - a moba) Are you disputing this point? Because that what I've been saying all along.

Reading comprehension i guess.. did you continue reading the OP ... and again no where does he mention 12 mill .. he is not asking for that .. ffs , he makes it clear ... and 12 mill is not part of the equation .. What is .. Is CAPTURE a Signifgamnt MArket and ConTROl for Extended time ... .. Now that could be 4 to 5mill  .. Couldnt it ....   Hope this helps....


 

 

Two Mobas have over 50million unique monthly players.

4-5 million is not a significant portion of the online market, and no mmorpg will have that again at any point other than WoW.

FF14 doesn't have anywhere near that and never will.

Dude again wtf is wrong with you .. his discussion was targeting traditional MMORPGS .. and you bring 2 MOBAS ... holy dain bramage


 

 

I am using LoL and Dota2 to again (what for the 4th) time show you how unpopular mmorpgs are right now *in comparison*

Do you understand what comparison is?

Mmorpgs peaked with WoW, none will ever repeat that again.

There is no mmorpg that will capture 4-5 million players.

There will be some other online games but they won't be mmorpgs.

What about Destiny? *dodge stones*

W3 probably tackles more hot-button issues than any other game, including the Bloody Baron quest line, terrorism, genetic cleansing, racism, radicalism, love, and much more. Gotta say, I've been thoroughly impressed. 
Can't wait for the next expansion. I've already pre-ordered it.

Roberts is a suit.  He's a PT Barnum with a love for the vainglorious and grandiose.   Great marketer, obviously, but he reads his press clippings far too much.

 

Although anyone who expect the game to be released anywhere near on schedule was obviously not paying any attention.  the road to Star Citizen is going to be long and bumpy.

and expensive

less expensive than the triple A garbage you get with the likes of Microsoft, Ubu and EA blood diamond money

Actually, no. Star Citizen is easily one of the top 10 most expensive games to develop.... ever. 

It's actually a pretty horrible time to consider a new MMORPG. The market is still flooded, but games are free and not horrible. The life cycle for a subscription model has decreased to less than 1 year. MMORPG fans now have much more diverse tastes since originally cutting their teeth on games like EQ, Vanilla WoW, SWG and other early games which really popularized the genre. This means that mass appeal requires a watered-down product. Alternatively, you need to aim at a niche market, which means that larger, AAA budgets are off the table. That being said, SWTOR, ESO, and FFARR have at least shown that AAA games are still viable.

I guess that is one way to look at the situation.

Another would be that when someone resorts to hypothetical examples about topics that are completely unrelated to MMOs and then throwing around personal insults, that person really doesn't have much of a point about the actual topic.

 

 

However, you bring up the issue of actually playing the game and it makes me wonder.  How much EQN have you played to make such claims about all those other things that you think make it such a different game that anyone can see the difference?

 

I've seen what the developers say they want to do.  Where they say these things are still just concepts and they are now starting to work on them.  Where they say they are still in the research phase.  They say they want to make EQN a different game than Landmark, so I'm curious where you are getting these facts from about the game existing currently.

 

In all fairness, both of you are talking out your asses. You know as much about the current state of the product as he does, I'm sure. Regardless of what the final "product" is, the one thing that is certain is that there is enough of a game that a VC firm invested, possibly, hundreds of millions of dollars to acquire it. As a general rule of thumb, VC firms don't buy losers, they perform extensive (actually brutally painful) due diligence, and CN is absolutely no noob when it comes to technology, so I highly doubt that the wool was pulled over their eyes. They have a whole division dedicated to tech firms and they could have (probably did) brought in a laundry list of tech geeks who could rip apart the code and tell CN the exact state of the game and a ballpark number on what it'll cost to finish it. I'm not saying bad investments don't happen, but not generally on massive investments like SOE would have been.

For me WOW lost when they decided to remove class specific quest. It was immersive and role playing when doing the druid quests to learn the new forms, or mastering new elements to learn the totems as shaman, or infiltration and kill as a rogue. But all that is gone now, replaced with generic quest hubs.

Good one!! It was when the got rid of talent trees that did it for me. I mean I still love the game, but it has lost some of that magic. 

 

Unfortunately, I think it's probably has a lot to do with how we've evolved as MMO players as well, but we won't see/admit that anyway. I'll be the first to admit that I've become more casual than I was at one time, though. So you'd think I like the changes like no talent tree. I don't though :(

No worries, I'm sure subs will come back up after their expansion announcement this year at Blizzcon. 
So I like to think that I keep a pretty close eye on things. Maybe I didn't really care about it, or maybe I missed it, or maybe it was just REALLY hush-hush. All I know is I got home from work yesterday to my son telling me PS2 had been released on PS4. WTF? Oh and, SURPRISE! The launch was horrible!! Anyhoo, just thought I'd let peeps know who are in the same boat as me and simply missed it entirely.

I was expecting to read a lot more hate since it's trion

step it up guys

 

 IT'S A TRAP!!!! 

 

Remember, "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering." 

 

So, we see an awful lot of posts on here about how people are simply not enjoying themselves with MMORPG gaming anymore. It's blamed on companies. I blame the dark side. Yoda was right all along. 

 

In all seriousness, though, if you honestly hate Trion that much, then move on before the dark side takes full hold of you because it doesn't get any better. These aren't the games you're looking for.

If necessity is the mother of invention, accessibility is the mother of emulation... and its no surprise that's 99% of what we get with video games since nearly the turn of the millennium. 

Well said and so true. We're often calling for innovation, but when innovation comes we scream that it sucks and we just wish they'd go back to how it was before. Plus, especially for consoles, I hate when they set up different default button mappings for things like shooters. Just why? 

I actually had a problem with the value of the Crowfall KS. I felt like it was overpriced compared to what I've come to expect. What is that expectation? Well, I find that the $20-$25 digital copy is pretty normal, and fair, for something that you're taking a risk on. I mean what's the price going to be at release? I'm sure I will be able to pick it up on Steam at that price or close at launch, or wait on a steam sale and pick it up for a deeply discounted rate, compared to $40 bucks!

 

The Bard's Tale IV has actually been the polar opposite. So when I kickstarted BT4 within the first 24 (and the 48) hours of the start of the campaign, I got my choice of one of 3 games (one of which is very new). Then, they have another promo that nets me the previous 3 BT games, PLUS for those at a higher level the 2 Ultima Underworld games. I mean the value is so good that it actually makes me feel a little guilty for only dropping $20 into it. I don't think you need to go to that extreme, but it certainly DOES go a long way to making you feel like you spent your money well.

Edit: And scoring 60 out of ~100 does not strike me as being a particularly high standard of "integrity" either.

To be honest, it's so low because there isn't a lack of journalistic integrity these days, it's literally gone. Hey, at least Reuters has SOME level of standards, I suppose. That being said, I find it somewhat comical that a journalist is actually making any sort of comment about ethics in journalism when it's known to be a cut-throat, seedy, corrupt industry to begin with. Even for those who "pass" these tests, there are back-room deals being made, zero accountability, and horrible ethics. 

 

What validates you as a "journalist"? A college degree? Sorry, but the Internet changes everything. Sounds like sour grapes to me. "We write 'good' journalistic content and we get a little more than 3 million unique visitors per month. IGN writes fluff pieces and complete crap and they get 60+ Million unique visitors per month." *humph*!

 

Unfortunately, it seems like someone should probably hang up their fedora and accept that traditional journalism doesn't matter any more. By the time that you break ANY REAL story, it's already been trending on twitter for the past hour. My wife learned that Paul Walker died hours before it was on CNN, and I'd argue that CNN is pretty good at getting news out there quickly. I say that's unfortunate for a couple reasons. First, it means that I need to deal with horribly-written tripe that reeks of 8th-grade English. Secondly, it's just sad that this guy actually, literally, doesn't understand that Reuters' relevance isn't what it was 20 years ago. Yes, news agencies are now becoming irrelevant. 

All of that may be true, but even on on questionable "real" news site, even disclaims any possible conflicts of interest and such.

Or most do anyway.

In the games press, none of that happens.

Sure, but it really just sounds like sour grapes. Plus, they never provide any legitimate source. They reference IGN and Gamespot and "some other sources" and then say that SOME of the items include "0% of staff having a journalism degree". Meanwhile it took me all of 5 minutes (ok, if I'm speaking literally, then maybe 10 minutes -TEN!!) to find someone on both IGN and Gamespot staff who have a degree in journalism. Soooooo, pretty much, yeah. Fail on the journalistic integrity rant for this dude. That's fine, though, I know that media companies struggle with misinformation these days. They must be busy telling everyone about how horrible all these bloggers and game journalists are, or dusting off their journalism degrees to actually go out and fact-check. 

 

BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT - Ok, to give this guy the benefit of the doubt, there WAS only two LARGE sites mentioned. So, I suppose if they were referencing one of my websites or some other one-man show, then they are probably right. However, I'll be if a subjective person were to go through the checklist on the companies doing these data feeds, I'll bet it would come out much higher. Waaaaaaay too much subjectivity to be "real". Especially coming from a company who publicises in their very own Standards and Values (in the Reuters Handbook of Journalism) that journalists will not inject their own opinion into the story. 

 

It's cool, though, I think we've all come to terms with the fact that journalistic integrity is something that went out the window with the fedora anyhow.

As E3 loses dev studio attendance (and relevance) , PAX and Gamescom gain more studios each year and gain more relevance.

Maybe E3 should consider changing their fees and regulations to make it more attractive to all?

At this rate E3 will just end up in 2 companies at the show - Sony and Microsoft.

 

Well, not 2. But maybe they should change the name to A3 (AAA) because it does seem like the number of indies there has dwindled.

I will never understand the law when it comes too things like these. I don't live in the US but in my country its the exact same. Companies can just put in their terms of service that it can be changed. So pretty much the agreement is meaningless cause they can change it when ever and how much they want. The problem here is that companies like EA enforce their stuff onto you and if you don't agree on the agreement then you no longer have access to your game(s).

 

Yet when i as user sign a contract anywhere then i cannot decide to alter it till the end of the contract. I had it recently when my internet provider decided to merge with another that was much lower on quallity. Seeing it is also my cable provider i lost a bunch of tv channels i regulary watched and they announced the price would go up. Never did they inform me that i could cancel my contract before a certain date (or when the exact merge was as well, i got a mail about that  a week after the merge). If i want to leave now they point with a giant finger as the agreement i signed so I'm stuck with them for a year. But they can change when ever they like, only the consumer has to obey the agreements it seems. Yeah nice and fair law, good job there, protect the greedy companies whooohoo.

In all fairness, in a society where companies need to protect themselves from lawsuits from people who burn themselves with coffee, people who sue fast food chains for "making them fat", or suing a lawnmower company because you cut yourself while trimming your hedges with your lawnmower. Yes, there is some amount of greed involved. On the other hand, though, it comes down to people today. Shoot, video game companies can't even give people a free game without them complaining. You can't even release a collectors edition without people whining.
