The Daily Grind: Any MMO resolutions for 2018?

    
37
Arr?

It’s almost 2018, and that means we can bid farewell to one year and start a new one that… well, will probably feel much the same. Really, there’s not a big flashing sign naturally occurring when the year changes over. But it’s still a time for reflection, self-improvement, and creating a milestone whereby you can start judging your progress for the next time around the clock.

So why not make some goals? It’s our Daily Grind for resolutions for the new year. So what do you want to accomplish in 2018? How do you want your gaming to change? Do you want to finally achieve those various side projects you’ve long put off? Collect appearances? Try something new? Jump into open PvP? Make a character whose name doesn’t contain the word “Fart?” Let us know!

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!

Resolution: Do not allow my love of an I.P to blind me to how a developer treats it and its customers. Have more respect for myself with regard to quality of game I want and how I am prepared to be treated when im PAYING someone to play it. remind myself they need me, I do NOT need them, there are ALWAYS other games.

Lol. I can’t really have any MMO related New Years Resolutions. The games and industry change so much that it seems pointless to try.

Ah, but there is one I will keep for a long time at least. Don’t buy EAs bullshit. Don’t even purchase EA games.

Activision is on the cusp of such a mandate, but still alive.

Play more for the joy of it and less for the FOMO!

I really want to find an MMO to get excited about this year (or at least a pseudo-MMO). I’ve been coasting on TSW and the occasional WoW expansion for the past five years or so, with the odd dabble into Rift, SWTOR, GW2. Hoping that something this year really grabs me and pulls me in…it’s been a while since I got head-over-heels excited about a game/world. I guess that’s more of a wish and less of a resolution :)

Stop playing anything when it gets grindy and unfun for a while. Because at this point I know that while all games occasionally have bursts of grind, nothing ever recovers from a week of grind and it’s better to just go play something else fun rather than hoping this will get better. Screw the sunk cost!

Continue to wait for WoW Classic and not get sucked into the retail xpac when it launches.

That might be the catch you might have to buy the expansion to get access to vanilla. Incentives. Just like you have to sub to EQ2 to access time locked servers.

That did cross my mind and I expect your probably right.

As I said when Bree posted the same question my resolution is to continue to try to get MJ to play and stream World of Warcraft. I think she might finally break in 2018. :P

I don’t have resolutions per se, but I am taking a break of indeterminate length and I do have a few books to finish, so if I don’t get them done I’ll be frustrated with myself.

Slow reader are ya? I can read a 1500 page book in 4-6 hours depending on if i take any breaks.

Heh, it always amazes me how people can finish in an evening something that took me half a year to write :)

Keep my accounts turned off and uninstalled is my actual goal so I can play more single player stuff. I failed pretty badly at that last year, but have done pretty good for the last few weeks, so maybe I can keep it up.
Related to my WRUP response yesterday about not being able to play my PS4. I somehow just discovered that I can Remote Play to my PC and didn’t realize it was a thing. That will actually solve some issues.

Good one. I have a list of really good single-player games as long as my arm I want to play.
