The Daily Grind: What MMO patch has been the most disappointing for you?

Corpse party.

Not everything you anticipate turns out to have been worth the anticipation. We’ve all had patches that were hyped up as containing all sorts of new content in our MMOs of choice… but once you actually got into the patch, you discover that the new content consists of maybe two quests and a couple new achievements. Or worse yet, it contains so much time-gated content that the patch day is basically a preview of the content you’ll be getting meted out in dribs and drabs for weeks, each piece of it cleared in a few minutes.

Or maybe the patch contains new systems that are actually a terrible change for the game on a whole that gut your preferred way of playing completely. Or maybe it contains no actual content but just some social media integration you never really wanted in the first place. Maybe a lot of different things; patches have been finding ways to disappoint us for a long time now. So what MMO patch has been the most disappointing for you?

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!
