Jul 23rd 2011 3:22AM @Valkesh Yeah, you're right. It would've been better if the genre never left it's infancy.
Jul 13th 2011 11:11AM @(Unverified) And one day you'll understand that you're in the minority. Not everyone wants to play in a sandbox.
Feb 25th 2009 10:42AM Don't kid yourself thinking that anyone believes that you're sincere. You came in here LOOKING to be a troll, and it seems you've done just that. If you want to champion Darkfalls cause, the best way to do that would probably be to NOT act like the total dickwad that everyone thinks FFA MMO players are.

You're right, I don't dislike the idea behind Darkfall because I think ganking and griefing is as much of a real PvP experience as I think rape is sex. I don't dislike it because I think it's rediculous to play a game full of sadists who find joy in nothing but making sure they only fight on unbalanced odds to win, then proclaim themselves "better" or "more hardcore" than everyone else. I dislike it because newer games tell me I'm supposed to.
That, after all is why I play WoW. I'm too brainwashed to know what I find enjoyable in a game and just flock to the one with the biggest numbers. I don't play WoW because it has depth beyond "get in big groups and kill people at a disadvantage," I started playing it in beta because it was foretold by the prophets to hold the most mmo subs ever.
That being said...I hope Darkfall succeeds in it's own right. Griefers need a place to hang out so they can realize why everyone hates them.
Feb 13th 2009 5:42PM That, and the fact that WAR's content is absolutly awful. Unless, of course you like dungeon content that consists of nothing but gear checks with tank-and-spank boss encounters and RvR, which actually means zerging undefended keeps over and over again while your enemies take yours from behind you.
Yeah, WAR definitly has better content.
Feb 13th 2009 5:37PM That...is completely rediculous.
Feb 5th 2009 4:23PM I would disagree with it being lowest common denominator, and I can't stand it when people compair WoW to fast food. That makes the assumption that the game is horrible but it's super easily accessible, that is most certainly not the case. Are there things that could be better? Sure there are, but there isn't an MMO out there (and I don't imagine there ever will be) that does everything perfect.
I think Blizzard does a stellar job of building and improving the game, it's still one of the only big MMO's that actually has fun and interesting PvE encounters. That's stuff that AoC and WAR haven't managed to figure out, being as every boss in both games are just harder hitting versions of every other mob in the game. The grind is also becoming less and less visible, you get faction rep by doing things you were doing anyway (running dungeons) and it barely takes any time.
I do agree, though, that Blizzard could try to actually lead the industry in innovation for once. There are a lot of improvements they make over already existing ideas, and the new phasing system is amazing, but there could definitly be a lot more. Hopefully their future expansions and whatever this new MMO is will deliver a bit more on that.
Feb 4th 2009 3:46PM Who said anything about WoW?
I hope you keep WARin' it up so you're jaded, fanboi, hate-mongering ass stays out of my game.
If you want YOUR game to succeed...you might wanna start thinking about how it's going to get there.
PS - It's not from new MMO players.
Feb 4th 2009 3:43PM Dude...WAR never had any chance of being a "WoW Killer." Didn't at launch, doesn't now, won't ever.
Feb 3rd 2009 11:55AM Too bad for Ensemble, but I am certainly glad this MMO didn't ever actually get made. We really didn't need another game made from an extermely lackluster IP, there's already WAY too much Halo IMO.
