The Daily Grind: What promised yet undelivered feature sticks in your craw?

There are few things more annoying than a developer promoting an upcoming feature or change and then never delivering on it. Four expansions later, World of Warcraft fans still grump about the failed promise of a dance studio that was somehow too difficult for Blizzard to figure out.

For me, I’ve been irked for years over the fact that Turbine has repeatedly promised to overhaul Lord of the Rings Online’s ancient housing system without ever getting around to fixing it. Not too long ago, the studio finally announced that it was giving up on the idea, prompting me to throw my hands up in exasperation and take a long walk outside.

So what promised yet undelivered feature sticks in your craw? And what is craw, exactly?

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!

Cyroselle PurpleCopper I’m curious; why do you guess that’s not happening in EQN?

Oyjord Gosh I rather like that.
I guess I’d rather be Odin in that frame.

Dope_Danny Yup. Even as an RPing Undead ‘Lock I was interested in The Emerald Dream.
At the very least that verdant dimension could have amazing potential for herbs I could exploit to ‘cure’ Azeroth of all the vile Living.

There is no escape.

dirtyklingon Oleg Chebeneev I remember seeing a (marketing) cinematic showing the concept of bar brawling in AoC… made me so happy… so of course, disappointment was riding its coat-tails.

The entirety of the Mythos game itself, back when it was being developed by Flagship.
I loved my gremlin blood blade thingy so damn much. And I had a cyclops alt!!!
Then Flagship died, Runic wasn’t able to regain that IP, and Mythos got passed around China and Korea like an unfortunate whore at an Orkish Fratboy (LOL reference) party.

MikedotFoster It always struck me as really weird and severely ironic just how good EVE’s CC is. What the heck?
