I hate “oh shit” buttons!
Justin and I were joking about this on a podcast a while back, but I mean it quite seriously. I don’t like those long-cooldown panic powers that take up tray and screen real estate. I seldom remember to use them. If I do remember to use them, it’s never the right time, and I always wish I’d waited. So usually I just… don’t use them. If I can’t count on them in whatever that MMO’s skill rotation happens to be, they may as well not exist. Plus, if I’m really in an “oh shit” moment, I’m probably too busy doing something else anyway. Like, you know, running away!
Surely I’m not alone here. How do you feel about “oh shit” buttons in MMOs? What’s an MMO where they are genuinely useful and good?
