Go ahead and advise if you wish. Those that read this thread will come to their own conclusions just as you have.
I doubt the "others" you speak of, will actually give a shit about anything you say.

Hats off to you SunandShadow, I really enjoy your posts. You do have have a hard sell on these forums though. Unfortunately I am with the lazy cat up above. I like to play and read about games.
Wish you the best of luck with this idea though.
ESO wasnt that great before B2P so..........

Someone whining about why a game is not made specifically to their particular tastes.
That has gotten so old it is prehistoric.
What would suddenly make you say "No thank you" to Crowfall?

If they don't come up with a better name than "Crowfall" in the next 48 hours.

People are lazy. And they don't play for fun. They want to pump their egos by building a badass toon , just by blindly following what someone else has done.
Doesn't matter what OP does with his toon, he won't be happy.

It doesn't matter if you have read the rules or not, if you click on the agree button, then you have agreed to abide by those rules. And that is the law!
If you are going to post at least try to make some sense.
And OP you broke those rules. Goodbye.
Players don't know whats good for them, they need direction.

How do I know? I looked it up!
Todays gamers will never be satisfied and this is the big reason why. There is nothing left to discover. It is all there right in front of them.
Always cracks me up when people say they want something different in an MMO, and then when they play something different, they say:
Why isn't this like the last MMO I played?

What they are trying to do is raise cash at this point.
Until we see what they are doing with that cash, it is all just smoke and mirrors. Come back in two years and see what they are promising then.
What does your thread have to do with defining elitism? It is a rant against monetization systems.
Your title is a scam.

I think DM is obviously just kidding, but in a way he is right.
I play my MMO's mainly for myself to just have fun.
But there is a large contingent, of MMO players who play these games simply to become one of the elite. Their goal is to show how much better they are at playing the game than you are. And thats fine. They just aren't the type of players I generally enjoy playing with. But I have met some "elite" players that were actually pretty cool, and treat other players with respect.
So just being "elite" is not necessarily bad. It has more to do with how the player treats other players, IMO. That defines the good "elite" from the bad.
One more day till early release. Who else is stoked!

LOL the people here that complain about paying for early access, are probably all the same ones that complain about F2P games but will blindly pay for a monthly sub game, and then drop it after the first free month, so that they can come on the forums and bitch about how it is an unfinished and buggy mess!
Its about supporting a game, peeps. Some people are willing to do that, like supporting a homeless person or something. Its your money. You are allowed to give it to charity if you like.
I won't be giving to this one though, not my thing.
Haha, these are the reviews that I really trust! This guy and the Hive Leader.
It is a game, and you have to have fun with it. Why do people take MMO's so seriously?
Loved it, thanks!
SWTOR, TSW, GW2, FFXIV, ESO, WildStar, ArcheAge, list goes on...

Just another guy that thinks because he reads some posts on a forum, he thinks he knows everything about that game, despite never having played it.
Sorry Kopo, until you loosen up your wallet and start actually trying to play a game, your posts are pretty much irrelevant to me.

Why do we, as players, continue to trash the long hard hours of work that people put into these games just to give us some enjoyment?
This is a gorgeous looking game. And from what I hear it does the space simulation part very well. If you are complaining that it is not that great from an MMO perspective, you are probably right. But it is what it is, and it has great potential in all of these areas. We have to give these games the chance to reach that potential and not just spread negative opinions, based on what it is, at this point.
Would love to play it, as my Logitech flight stick is just gathering dust at the moment. For me the lack of MMO features might just be a positive I think. If this isn't your game thats fine, but don't try to kill it because it is not your cup of tea, please.
What a waste that would be.

What the hell do casual gamers have to do with 40 man raids failing??
The content wasn't aimed at them, so why even mention it?
And you would have liked to see it work? Well did you even try to play ? No of course not. Because that is typical of the person who thinks MMO's are too easy and dominated by casuals, but does nothing but post on forums about it.

I think one of the big problems is how do you make the game fair for all?
In a regular multiplayer RTS everyone plays until the game is finished. In an MMO you can't play 24/7 so someone gains an advantage just by having more time to play.
Plus how do you monetize it? Charge a sub? Most likely will have a cash shop too. More room for pay to win advantages.
I actually played a game called "Wild Guns" for a time I believe. Enjoyed the building part, but then one day I woke up and it was all gone. Another player had made his move and it was pretty much game over. I kind of felt the whole exercise was just prolonging the inevitable loss. Better to get it over quickly.
I think Narius might be right. Its always going to be a very niche,and most likely browser game , as there just isn't enough demand for an MMO like this.

If you are the type of gamer that goes into a new game now and starts asking questions like:
- Where do I find this resource?
- Where is the best place to level for a level 10?
- What is the best weapon for my character?
- What is the best build?
You have just taken all the thrill of discovery and removed all the risk of making a mistake from the game. You are blindly following others and going through the motions.
And you wonder why games are not epic.......

He's right about EvE.
But the kind of game you are talking about does not work well as an MMO in my opinion. These games are basically RTS games which need resets when someone takes over the entire map.
Not conducive to long term MMO type play.
Take a look at Bounty Bay Online. If it is still around.
It was Voyage Century without the cash shop.
