Did I accidentally go to the Massively Over-Lawyered Podcast? ;)

But seriously, I’m looking forward to GW2: End of Dragons this year.

I’m kind of curious about the LoL MMO. It’s not that I’m excited for that universe or lore or whatever, I just want to see what Riot thinks the future of MMOs is. Will it be a theme park, or sandbox, or PVP, or even solo friendly? Morbid curiosity more than anything else I think.

The issue with RoR’s combat and mobs is probably because it’s an alpha. The questing is really rough as of right now. Most of your best experiences will come from Lake PvP.

Justin, the HandyNotes addon is great for finding treasures in WoW. There’s one for Shadowlands that marks them on the map and mini-map in the open world zones that you can mouseover for a description on how to get them.

Crowfall and Camelot Unchained are two titles that I don’t closely follow but will be interested to see how they come out the gate. I’m not a PvP person, but maybe there will be room for me in them somehow. At the very least, I hope they don’t belly up as they’re not just another themepark MMO.

I’ve felt similarly about MMOs at times where I find myself enjoying the conversation around an MMO more than I do playing it. Kind of like enjoying the potential more than the reality. I’ve also seen that sentiment here and there over the years, particularly on forums or in-game chat where people talk more than they play.

I’ve zero interest in another cartoony PVP-oriented “MMO”, especially one based off a mobile game.

Hard pass.

Yeah i totally love when Mark Jacobs chimes in on our opinions, he has a very unique view and i tend to think its a good viewpoint on gaming. Its not like he chops people down but he does tend to tell people hey there is another side to this whole thing. I find it sometimes it changes my opinion, i tend to think we all get a little laserfocused on our opinion when it comes to our hobby.

I also think that the other readers here are very civil for the most part. I seldom see the toxic hate or out of control posting you see on other websites. I like to think its because the readers are a bit older, but i could be totally wrong on that.

Agreed. While certain topics can be more … heated … than others, the overwhelming majority of the discussions I’ve seen here have been very civil.

Cuz Bree cracks that whip! 😱🤣

Definitely second/third this. Mark’s always got something interesting to say and his insights are worth listening to.

Bree mentioned the UO Stratics boards, and I collapsed into a pile of dust.

Haha! Hey but do you remember the Crossroads of Britannia site? That .asp forum that would collapse in a puddle any time the servers went down? :D

Bree is 1000% correct. We don’t want to see WoW killed. We want to see an MMO as good as WoW, as big as WoW, that pushes mmos in a good direction, and pull along new games in its wake, and redefine the genre, and lift all games (well, to be fair, I don’t know if WoW did that or lead to a lack of innovation and instead immitation of yet another fantasy mmo).

And a lot of money. Bree’s right. A company should throw a lot of money at this MMO.

If only there was a company doing just that. I’m sure we’d be singing its praises to the high heavens.

If only.

Who is “we” here? I’d actually laugh if WoW died because of the stupidity of the company running it.
