All I see in MMO is EQ, EQ2, Pirates, planetside, SWG, Matrix, and Vangaurd.  I checked the strategy card games its not their either.


The above is MY screenshot with MY desktop visible in the background - here's a supporting thread (where I heard about it) with a different screen (obviously different because it was posted well before mine and mine shows my desktop even):

There were more than enough people who thought like you did, and I would too...that's why "I" took my own screenshot ;)


Hmm well I cant recreate it, So yes I guess they took it down.  This reminds me of the find of the NGE being sold for console that time on Amazon.  For 2 weeks SOE said not true, then we got the news it was comming but not for the console.   So we might get something ineteresing.

Honestly I am surpirsed that this would happen, Lucas arts is not to happy with SOE otherwise bioware would not have gotten swtor.

I still rofl at the 1 million subs that sto got,  he he.  They have a single shard server and if you think they can support 1 million folks signing in i would love to see them try.

First I will say the only thing that can kill blizzard and wow is blizzard themselves.  We have seen other games take shots at blizzard in hopes to nail them between the eyes. LOTRO tried and they are getting wow accounts but they did not kil wow, AOC, Warhammer and others have tried.  I have yet to see anybody yet with the kill shot and hear the words double humilation back from my counter strike days.

I am looking forord to the release of of STwor,  as most folks are.  I loved SWG but it was totaly blown by the NGE.  If anything it will finally put the nail in the coffin for SWG. 

However I don't think it will kill wow.  The reason its not that type of mmo it is a totaly seperate type of lore. Those folks love their elves and what not, and as far as I know there will not be any elves in STwor.

I could be wrong but I really dont see blizzard getting nailed by bioware or for that matter anybody else.




wow was nailler a long while back in asia lol!since blizzard isnt in their market its not said.but the fact is there is at least 10 mmo that have higher sub then wow in asia.if they brag about its may be in BAIDU,because asian couldnt care less about the rest of the world they got 1300 million people to chat with just in china lol!i sure wouldnt bother a reply to anybody outside of china.the only time we get a sneakpeak of what is really going on in china is when chinajoy is going on

and chinajoy is way bigger then e3 ,they are an inexperienced team (chinajoy)but they are way bigger then everythin there is on the planet!so for  a population of 1300 million do you honestly think they notice they are 20 million in their favorite mmo

hell they meet one million people just walking in the street they dont notice that at all it would take an american firm to go to asia and check the total number of player.and i bet the asian would say why you need to know .mmo maker would say we know how much we made is that good for you researcher!i bet if you ask most asian mmo maker most probably dont know how many gamer they service ,and why would they care the way they think is this,the more player there is the more will end up paying and their revenue prove them right!


Yea wow got kicked out of china, big deal.  They still have something ofbig market in the us, and no other game even comes close. I don't know much about the aisian market other than they make a lot of really odd games.

There are several major problems with housing.

(1) Turbine gave up on it.  aside from the patch notes that they are fixing 1 statute size, it has become a totaly ignored game mechinic.

(2) New houseing neighborhoods do not open up unless one becomes full.  This can take a while as 80% of them are full of forclosed houses, a state of how the game is going.

(3) They should look at how EQ2 did housing,  one house with multiple instances for each toon that way you dont need all the extra neighborhoods.  The way it is currently is just pathatic.

(4) I agree with the op take the houses away, stash the stuff in the players escrow account and refund the players money.

(5) give me the option to sell my house,  and get my cash back before I move or decide to fold my kin.


Wow it would have to be Interplay the made the original.

I have to agree with the OP as in how Fallout 3 was a huge disapointment.

I have been in lotro since beta A2 and up.

I t has always been lackluster.

Content wise it was ok, as we got regular updates. However those have slowed way down.  Even the last xpac if you can call it that was small in size.  I have been on bullroares test center today and even the new book update, well is very sad as well.

The changed the leveling to make it easier, however the 35-50 range has always been hit somewhat hard even with the addition of  Forchell.  Once your past 50 leveling goes super fast.  Once you hit 60 you can make it to 65 in under 24 hours if your hard core.

The problems with this game are lack fun end game content, that has been replace by the how many times you can run a skirmish in a day.  It is sad but with each advancing book lotro looks more and more like DND as far as adding more instances.

Just my 2 cnets worth, and its just my thoughts, I speak for nobody else.

They are currenly reworking the SoA zones, which is good. They did already improve Ered Luin, Breeland and the Lone Lands to a certain extent.

Anyway, Wife and I are currently playing our low-level hobbits in the North Downs on Laurelin (not even the busiest European server) and there are plenty of people around freeing Dori, defending Trestlebridge and fighting Falconers.

Turbine mainly seems to need to recruit more players for the American servers, IMO.


Actually you should read orions blog, hes no longer working on revamps.  He said the revamps to north downs has beenn put on hold.  His original blog said he had been moved to another project. however the blogs been updated a few times. I just now says that he cant discuss why  hes not working on the north downs revamp.

So no more revamps, and I suspect they are short a dev now after 5 of my questions asking what happened has been pruned.

This is the link to Orions blog

And if the link does not work you can go to and its right there on the first page.  And for those without acess to that here is the cut and paste.

(qouted from oriond blog)

Bad news always sucks. We never like hearing it and we never like having to give it to people. Yet, sometimes, we have to bite the bullet and parse out the information as we know it and let the stinging barbs be unleashed upon our person.

I am not going to the North Downs. I have completed the revisions on Epic Volume I, but my revision work on the North Downs is now on indefinite hold.

Unfortunately, this is another reason why we should not be so free with the information that we provide.

I will be posting another blog soon explaining the kinda good news that you may or may not be looking for with relation to the changes coming with the Volume I revision.

Great article, amazing all the lemmings buying STO.  As P.T. Barnum said "there is a sucker born every minute".

Oh well some have to learn the hard way.....


Star Trek fans have a bad, and yet very much deserved, reputation for swallowing any crap with the label "Star Trek." This is why Voyager and Enterprise lasted as long as they did even though both shows were pretty bad.


Enterpise was so bad, after the first 3 episodes I refuesed to watch that junk, jist like the abrams reboot as they call it.  It is amazing how folks will flock to it just becasue,  I think you right about that.

"Our world is changing... I'm not sure when it began to change. Perhaps the darkness was there all along and we refused to see it.
... There is a sense that we are lost, adrift. In the streets, in the temples, you can hear it in their voices, their manner: an anger just beneath the surface, a growing dissatisfaction, a self-involvement above the needs of others. It is not the same world in which I was born... Not the same at all."


These words are from Draal, of Babylon 5, but they could as well be mine. Far fetched you say? I don't think so. I think rather, games are in similar state as is our societies. I have this year 20 years voting rights. And when I look back we had all possible combinations of Germany's political mayor four parties, and the overall feeling is, that nothing changed at all. That it did not matter who was in charge and we are stagnating. This is a feeling I see dominating all nations, and especially those of the West. I guess after Obama-mania vanishes now to harsh realities, even in USA it is the same. And I feel in many aspects the world, the people used to be less grim and dark, like humanity lost it's vision and is bogged down by the small and little things to a depressive state.


What this has to do with games? Everything. Its the same creative stagnation and the same growing cynism and apathy. How can any sphere be untouched when we as a civilization have lost "the spirit". Perhaps the way of pure materialism and money egomania wasn't so healthy after all, and it poisoned gaming just as everything else. STO & Cryptic are an empitome of fast money making and soulless visions. Its a small symbol for the big. The wise sees the storm in small drops of first rain. Take it or leave it. I said what must be said.


Wow you hit this dead on.  It is to bad that so many have become sheep, and are asleap.

I really dont get all these card game but hey lon cost me nothing and once a month i get a free pack.  I open it 9% of the time i get squat but there have been times i gotten a loot card.

Im just saying I don't pay for them decks they are expensive.

I loved this statement

After all, one day, that special MMO is going to appear, on sparkly clouds and pulled by six unicorns, and offer to sweep me away to a land where everything is just as it should be. "

One can only hope the past couple of years we thought we were getting something nice only to find the brown paper bag full of it ablaze on our doorstep.

I voted no for the simple fact that the last couple of games they have made are pure steaming piles of you know what.

Sorry from now on if Cryptic name is attached I dont even give it a second thought.

All I can say is I already voted with my wallet,  and that was with a resounding no. I was glad I had a free open beta key and I did not have to use any real money to get a look at this pour excuse of a game.

All I can sugest at this point is to cut your losses and run, that is if you are really unhappy.  Dont give them any more of your cash.  If enough folks start doing that, Cryptic will have to change.  Untill then they will keep giving you the same old stuff, as when you pay them you are saying im good with this.

Supply and demand.  I don't demand it, there is a supply and its going to stay on the store shelf as far as I care.

The only design that may be over used but is not really done properly is the tank n Spank.

This is because 99% of the games are solo,how can you say a game utilizes a certain aspect if it is just solo players running around?There is ONLY one game right now that promotes the TRUE Tank and spank theory and that is FFXI.All the other games only call for it in their cheap instance designs.One thing about FFXI however is the tank n spank is not locked in,to the creative players ,the game does allow for various combination of game play,it is just best suited to using the Tank N spank,because it utilizes a SUPPORT role design,rather than a ME ME design.

Also what FFXI does different is the go fetch 10 rats design of questing.It is all done utilizing a favor system,or a rank system is a better term.You do not go fetch 10 rats for some ridiculously lame XP reward,nor will you get 10 shiny gold pieces,so although the game might ask the same of you it is not for the same reasons.

I have no problem with Fantasy,because that is what it is,you cannot go around expecting to change definitions of genres.It would be like saying i am tired of hockey sticks in Hockey,or tired of baseball bats in Baseball,it is what it is and should not be changed.


Yes this part has been done the same in all games,i have no problem with levels IF they were treated like AGE,witch is actually the way it is designed but not implemented.Levels were meant to be a measuring stick on age,but players do not age,they just get new spells and abilities,this again is done poorly,players should always EARN abilities.I mean when you learn something in real life,you don't learn it just because you had a new birthday lol,otherwise we would all be Einstein's at the age of 40.SO yes i agree levels is way over used and improperly,and guess what?Square is going to remove them from FFXIV,so again Square shows they think a little smarter or outside the bubble than the rest of the SOE followers.


It is not only SOE that uses level, lets not forget wow, STO, CO, COX, any Tubine game.  Just saying SOE is just but one of many almost the entire game comunity uses levels.

A good list

I was laughing so hard about the 10 rats.  I mean most MMO's have kill x number of this or that, and its a standard in all of them.

The fedx one I have to agree with.  I would love to use this example of how silly it can get.  While I read the part they use it to send you to the next location sometimes that is not the fact.   In SOM in lotro there is a quest that you get when you get to ost galath the next area past haunted in.  This quest is timed and requris you to go back to the haunted in,  now this is just the area that yo completed and moved on from, and they send you backwards,  Im like wtf should they not send you to from the haunted in to ost galath.   There were 2 quests already at haunted inthat send you to the locations that you need to go next, and then they send you back.  Lotro excells at the backwards fedx delivery system.


Yes I thought they were already working on another MMO.

I will say this, loud and clear I will not play it, they dont get any more chances at my money.


I wonder about 1 Million.  LOTRO has claim to 4 Million, however you would be lucky if 500K were playing.

Now I know tons of folks signed up on the furoms hoping to get a beta invite.  I don't believe for one moment there are 1 million folks playing STO.  I played open beta and 1 Mill would have shut that puppy down.  Heck you could barly get 300 in sol systemberfore it would crash and drop dead.

So I have to ask how many of these forum accounts were folks trying to get in on beta. I know I have over 50 different ones going to 10 different email accounts, and the only way I got in was through ten ton hammer giving out free keys.

So yes I dont belive those numbres.

Oh and I got to wonder how many of these went lifetime, how many are actually going to stay after the first 30 days of free game play.

I think were a bit to fast declaring victory.

For the OP I agree with what you have said.  That is why after I actually gave the beta 5 days before I gave up.  Im going to let those who love it play, however I am not.
