Watchers of this show will know that usually Larry Everett hosts the show, and he invites two or three guests to debate MMO tropes to the death, but this week, Larry is in the hot seat, and he’s battling Mike Byrne from MMOBomb. And MassivelyOP’s own Tina Lauro judged this week’s debate on some of the large-scale ideas that make or break MMOs.
The rules of this debate haven’t changed a bit, though: The panelists are given four questions before the show so that they have time to prepare an argument. They present each answer to the host and are awarded a point based on the argument given. The person with the most points at the end of the show gets one internet cookie and fame to last a lifetime.
1. Which MMORPG has the best free-to-play model?
2. What one thing will finally topple World of Warcraft?
3. When pitting one class from one MMO against the class of another MMO, which two classes would make the most interesting fight?
4. Build the most successful MMORPG. Give the genre, three primary features, and the developer.
