However, as I am meant to be writing My Best Man's Speech (for a wedding tomorrow - and dreading it!) I shall just get to the point.
I understand the the reference 'jumping the shark' pertains to a later episode of Happy Days when The Fonze did a ludicrous stunt by waterskiing over a ramp, and 'jumping the shark'!
The term was then adopted by production companies to express when their programme had went past it's peak audience, and therefore loosing ratings, and due to be dumped by the execs.
Applying it to a successful MMO, that is just about to receive its first ground-breaking expansion, is a wonderful example of how stupid you are.
Are you a troll? I hope so, then I can kick yer butt in the game! (I like killing the in-game trolls, especially the large ones)
Are you a concerned fan? Then you are simply an imbecile, and the game would be better off without you. As it states on numerous occassions, gameplay may change.
Turbine are attempting the most ambitious MMO project I know off, and so far, have done a really good job. I guess that in your hands, there would be NO expansion. That we would be restricted to the part of the world at the beginning. Woah! A game full of level 50 players - great fun...not!
Instead of 'jumping the shark', why don't you try to swim with it instead? A Great White preferably!
Ouch, that was a little harsh don't you think? I stated in my post that these are just my opinions and was interested in getting your opinions whether you thought this was the case or not. I see where you stand!
