Sword and Bored: Poof! Poof! Poof! Poof!

It’s Monday again and time for the further adventures of Mo in Sword and Bored. I have been extremely impressed with the popularity of this little comic. Although I’ve been drawing forever and Jef has been writing forever, this is our first venture into the unknown world of web comics.

We are more than happy that you have related to Mo. He really does represent the every-man/woman MMO player. We’ve all at one time or another run into the same troubles that he has, but we stick with MMOs because they are fun, despite some of the other players that use us as their content.

I promise that things will get better for Mo, eventually. But for now, let’s see what this week has in store…

You know what? These things aren’t for everyone. But this is the first one I laughed at. Keep up the good work. People who like it will thank you.

I hope one day to be impressed by this comic as much as you are by its “popularity”.

NCsucks That’s the problem though. The effort to ‘balance’ all classes and builds pretty much ruins the game for me. I /want/ there to be concrete advantages and disadvantages to different classes. That, plus 2,3 and 4 are why I have no use for PvP games.

Kherova breetoplay Edany (AmberACurtis) The joke is that Mo has initially rolled on a PvP server – and the trope is that on a PvP server, all noobs are going to get repeatedly spawn camped and killed over and over by “psychopaths and sociopaths”  – leading to the re-creation of Mo on a PvE server (which is the experience for the majority of people who play only on PvE servers it seems).

I would have no problem with PVP if:

1)Classes/builds would be balanced.

2)I would not get backstabbed 

3)More players would not team up on you.

Haha. This has been about how I’ve felt with PVP servers since I started working full time and being too busy to dedicate much time to them. PVE all the way now ;)

Damn, I would give an arm and a leg for a PVE server in Archeage.
