Isabelle Parsley steps into the Player Perspectives column at MMORPG.com, discussing topics important to her as a long time player of MMORPGs.

Soloers Don’t Destroy MMOs

General -  Column

A lot of talk is bandied about by players who honestly believe that solo players somehow degrade the overall MMO experience and that they have too much effect on a game's development.

Credit Where Credit's Due

General -  Column

The Secret World - Faction Fractions

The Secret World -  Column
