The Daily Grind: What’s one MMO wish you deeply regret?


It’s jumping.

Guild Wars players whined and moaned about not being able to jump in the classic game ad nauseam. Jumping increases our immersions and gives us something to do with our spacebar key binding, they said, plus we need jumping in PvP because of reasons. Give us the jumping!

Well, I hope you’re happy, Guild Wars players, because you got your wish in Guild Wars 2. In fact, you got your wish so well that not only can you spaz-jump in PvP and climb over hills, but every freaking corner of the game has a jumping puzzle waiting there to show you how terrible you always were at jumping. We have jumping for holiday events, jumping for dailies, entire game modes like SAB that are basically nothing but a test of jumping ability.

You know the developers cackle with glee every time they add in another one. Whine about jumping, will you? Have fun in the Mad King’s Clocktower, scrub! JUMP THIS. Muahahahahaha. And then they probably go back down to the break room and eat another donut.

I’m kidding, mostly. I’m glad we have new gametypes, even if they aren’t my thing. Buuuuuut now I’m more careful about what I wish for. What’s an MMO wish you deeply regret ever making?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
