The Daily Grind: What MMO do you wish had turned out differently?

Back in the day I was a big fan of Darkfall. I remember waiting an eternity for the game’s 2009 launch, and then I remember not being able to play it at launch due to Aventurine’s clusterfunk of a billing system. Nonetheless, Darkfall 1.0 remains one of my favorite MMO experiences to date, which is saying something since I’m not normally into PvP.

Darkfall Unholy Wars was fun for a while, but it was never quite the same, and nowadays the game wanders in and out of my peripheral vision. I’m tempted to go back on occasion, but Darkfall is one of those could-have-been games, at least in my opinion. What about you, MOP readers? What MMO do you wish had turned out differently?

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!

Firefall… Closed beta edition with all the content from before 1.6 patch U0001f62d

Polyanna a modern SL that had a real game at the heart of it (to seed a critical mass in population) could be huge.

even just not having a retarded name like “Second Life” would magically gain lots more players than SL was able to.

Yeah, I started SWG a couple weeks after launch. The CU and then the NGE were evidence of insanity IMO. They made 2 different games and tried to make us believe the new one was an upgrade.

Tiogui syberghost Tsiya yeah, that’s what I’m wondering. If Tsiya’s answer is something like “CU, NGE”, or some other aspect of the game design, then all good, hate away.

If it’s “they closed the game”, yeah, they had absolutely nothing to do with that. They would happily still have that game open if they were allowed to. The license was pulled by Lucasfilm. Likely at the behest of EA.

pepinocantador and Godemis   If   you liked good pvp at theme pakrs and dont mind trying a free aim mmo look for Darkafall1 (had almost the same pvp of the current Lightrise), Darkfall UW or MO and your  mind on good PVP will change.

“When I say bringing back DFO, I mean fixing its flaws, updating its
graphics, bringing interesting DFUW systems to it and then opening it. ”
Man so much potential here, but I’d want no change to the graphics tbh, possibly more in the same style. DFO just feels better..

Seems like AV has actually listened the last few weeks and opened up an unofficial petition to bring back the game : http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/bring-back-dfo.html

DFUW:  I wish it was DF2010, and was just an expansion on DFO.  Instead of a terrible relaunch of the darkfall series that made the game exponentially worse.

Tsiya I’m curious, what is it you’re never forgiving or forgetting about SOE in regards to SWG, specifically?
