During our insane streamathon on Friday, Massively OP’s Jef confided in us that he ragequit Star Wars Galaxies after the NGE hit — and worse, he deleted his main character. I don’t know whether you guys heard my audible gasp, but my goodness, that hurt. I don’t care how angry I am at a game; I never delete! I can’t bring myself to do it because like Jef surely did, I might regret it deeply later if the game changes course.
Then again, I’ve been plenty angry at studios and games, so I can understand the reaction. And I know that some people delete characters so that they won’t be tempted to return and give the company one more penny. How about you guys? Have you ever rage-deleted an MMO character?
