I still find Final Fantasy XI‘s old vague patch notes so annoying (“The potency of certain actions has been adjusted”) that I named an entire column after it. It’s tongue-in-cheek, but the reference is still there. But even that pales to the people who are still angry about Ultima Online’s Trammel, approximately two centuries after that happened. And you know as well as I do that they’re still out there, certain that this time global open PvP will work out even as games with it don’t work out well.
We all have some things that stick in our craw longer than they should, of course, and hopefully we recognize that these things are kind of silly despite our best efforts. But just recognizing that fact doesn’t take away the frustration, even if we can acknowledge that it should be far in our rear-view mirror and irrelevant at the moment. So what’s the oldest MMO change or update you’re still a little angry about? Even if you recognize that you’re wrong?
