Monolith aren't what they once were...

Monolith has made more shit games than good ones even since the very beginning. Their batting average hasn't changed.

That's not really true at all. What shit games have they made? Blood 2 and that LOTR MOBA come to mind. Some might include Gotham City Imposters. How many good games have they made? Blood, Shogo, NOLF, NOLF2, AVP2, FEAR and even FEAR2. They've definitely made more good games than bad.

Condemned, Condemned 2, Gotham City Imposters, Guardians of Middle Earth, Matrix Online, that one crap Tron game, and there was the one with Ice-T. Probably some I'm forgetting. But the shit games were interspersed throughout their life, so I don't think their batting average has changed at all.

How many times have gamers gotten themselves twisted up into a knot over some legalese in a fucking Terms of Use document for no reason?

Idiot gamers who don't have law degrees shouldn't even be reading that shit. They aren't qualified. It's written for lawyers, by lawyers, and is generally full of copy pasta boiler plate shit designed to provide as much ass-coverage as humanly possible.

Yet you have a bunch of unqualified idiots trying to parse them for reasons to get outraged.

So call in the feds. That's classic wire fraud right there making it a federal felony.

"This guy did a chargeback and didn't return some t-shirts, a picture, and a book he got. Could you please send the FBI."

I don't think the feds are going to be asking Indonesia to hand over some serial chargeback guy.

Well how fucking smart can these dumb-ass kids be if they're using social media with their real names and information to begin with?

It's not quite that simple anymore. A lack of an identifiable social media presence is sometimes seen as suspicious in and of itself. It's utter bullshit that it is that way, but it's becoming increasingly true.

Admissions departments in schools and HR departments in companies are always looking for new and creative metrics they can use to reject you.

Pigeon wrote on Nov 11, 2013, 09:14:
Even Vista was whipped into shape by this point in its development cycle. At this point I'm starting to wonder if there's something fundamentally wrong with their base UI that they have a hard time getting things to work that have been working just fine for the lat 20+ years. More likely they're still busy trying to cram a UI better suited for smart phones and tablets onto a PC. I really don't understand their insistence on having this interface on a non-touch screen device. Common sense would say have a touch screen mode and a mouse mode.

There's no incentive for them to do anything because, like Vista, even after it's fixed, people don't know it's been fixed or don't believe people who tell them and ignore the OS anyway. Better to just wait until the next version when they can make a fresh impression.

I don't see much reason for altering the interface anyway. Shit, I've been on Windows 8 for months and months now and I basically never see the Metro bullshit. I use it in the exact same way I used Windows 7. Windows 8 has had a negligible impact on my workflow. And aside from the Metro UI, just about everything in Windows 8 is improved from Windows 7 in the same way Windows 7 improved on Vista. Incremental, but pervasive updates.

Windows is dying.

Windows is dead and has been for a very long time. Win2k, outside of security problems, was the last version of windows that added anything necessary. Since then it's only been driver support, spyware and unnecessary services, and for some reason those add up to requiring exponentially more RAM and 4GB+ of HDD space to accommodate something that could, and should, exist in a few MB of RAM and used to have <1GB of a footprint. Microsoft has survived on a strategic monopoly since the late 90s. I wish they'd died a lot sooner.

If linux or apple had 100% backward compatibility with the legacy of Windows software, they would easily have claimed the majority of market share by now. I hate Microsoft so much. Despite the wonder of the modern age of computing, I fault them for thousands of hours of lost productivity.

Hahahahahaha.... right.

I really want to know where they get those numbers.
A few months back I checked every server how populated they were and they were rather empty, except 1 or 2 exceptions like Area 52 on horde side (alliance side is completely deserted).

You logged on to every server? There are almost 250 US servers alone. Another 100 for Europe. Then you take into account Horde and Alliance side... and the time it takes to run a proper /who census with a mod. Sorry, I'm calling bullshit. And even then you only get concurrent users, not how many active subscriptions there are.

And that's not even considering China, which I have no fucking clue how they calculate a user there.

I guess we have very different ideas about what constitutes "frequent", particularly as it applies to when one pays a monthly fee for a service.

Not to mention that "have to rework the game pretty significantly to make it f2p".

There's nothing to rework, remove the price tag, done.

Christ I hope you don't run a business.

I thought Pandaria WAS an original idea. No one liked it.

Anything using existing lore and people bitch that it's rehashed and lame. Anything new and people bitch that it has nothing to do with Warcraft.

Bioware has yet to release a game that I did not find utterly enjoyable. Are they all at the same level of quality? Fuck no. Are they all a "buy at full price" level of quality? Nope. Dragon Age 2, for example, was too bizarre a departure from the first one, and didn't have enough variety. But I still enjoyed it and sunk a fair number of hours into it. Shit, even SWTOR kept me busy for months.

Never really understood all the bile. Bioware at their worst are still better than most companies at their best. And they actually appreciate the PC as a platform.

They've certainly not reached the threshold for where I will flat out declare them unworthy of my dollar bills.

How's it feel to be Bioware's bitch? Wait dont answer that. I can recognize true love when I see it. Dude youre like the wife that wont leave her abusive husband. Classic victim mentality, it cant be his fault I deserve all that Im getting....

Hey I just came up with a new way of describing fanbois!!

You seem a little mad.

Mordhaus wrote on Nov 7, 2013, 00:39:
Maybe they wouldn't have lost more subs if they wouldn't have terminated the 25 year cards of their employees or former employees. I have some friends who worked for them in Austin, at their CS helpdesk for WoW. They laid 90% of them off, but did let them keep the cards as part of their severance package. Apparently management decided recently to put the kibosh on that and cancelled them all. Even current employees will no longer have access in that fashion.

All I can say is, Good Going Activision! You ran CoD into the ground to the point that it is now like Madden, new edition every 6-12 months with minor changes, and you are slowly killing your other cash cow with idiotic moves. You and EA are like twins now, enjoy your ride into mediocrity.

Nobody is quitting WoW because some people got laid off. The WoW player base doesn't give a fuck about your friends. In fact, they spend a good portion of their time talking about how useless your friends are. Hell, its the other way around: people got laid off because people were quitting WoW. Customer service was over-staffed.

There's no secret here. WoW is losing subscriptions because it's old and people are bored of the same old shit and there are a lot of other similar games to play out there.
