Oct 21st 2009 12:45PM The problem is that it's not a well-made WoW clone. Imagine an SNES WoW emulator. That's what this is. Alan is very right - this is an amazingly audacious ripoff and they're doomed - either because there's no way people will pay top-quality prices for something that looks and plays this badly, or because Blizzard is going to sue their asses off for intellectual infringement. Seriously, they didn't even try to hide it. EVERYTHING visible is a WoW clone. The crafting and studies are cool, but they're inserted into what's essentially a low-quality copy of WoW.
Dec 31st 2007 12:36PM WoW pretty much destroyed RP on its own by completely dismantling and destroying the lore of the game. If you started RP in WoW because you loved the storyline behind the Warcraft series, the Blood Elves and Draenei and their shoehorned-in retconned ridiculous story was a real blow.
Now all the Horde RP is in Silvermoon with those bloody ridiculous oversexed elves.
And now they're adding in Death Knights as PCs? Yeah. Blizzard clearly doesn't WANT people to be able to play in a coherent storyline.
Nevermind that they bothered to put rules in place they refuse to enforce.
LOTRO for the win.
