"Member seeing Star Wars in the theaters, you 50+ somethings? Yeah, here comes a game!"

Which is cool actually, but details beyond buzzwords are scarce. Open, immersive? Oooooo kay Is it one world or many?

They mention snowflake engine. Is this a descendant of the one with destructible environment, or a real AI for NPCs, where they attempt to avoid things or grab something if they start to fall?

I actually thought that they had mentioned what the bonuses were going to be, but I could be wrong.

10% annual profit for 2020

https://twitter.com/AdamBadowski/status/1311245204356304896?s=20

In the late 90s, the auto makers weren't doing so well, so had spent years saying no bonuses, sorry. Please wait until times are good.

Then they had a banner year, where they would give out tons of cash, based on their own, long-stated profit motive formulas. So the CEO of one invented other measurements and denied most of it anyway. Literally one "failed" measurement was akin to the old joke that the punishments will continue until morale improves.

Got about 1/3rd through DA 2 before calling it quits in disgust. I had realized there was no reason for warriors to exist anymore, as any arling would instead field leigons of invisible rogues super-backstabbing out of nowhere.

Raids are ok, but they aren't adventure. They are ridiculous ballets where you are expected to watch YouTube videos ahead of time.

Maybe some like that, but the best fun I ever had in an MMORPG was going into a dungeon with 4 other guys, rando, and none of us had done it before. We had to go carefully and solve the puzzles ourselves.

Raids in WoW are as mathematically the opposite of that as you can get. Maybe some super-guilds that run on test server get this honor and fun, but not in the regular game.

It's literally stupider than grinding, or Progress Quest.

I think this was one of very few games to use voxel technology, where 3D objects are built out of little blocks like grains of sand, or like dice more likely given the times.

The only other one I was aware of was a canceled Star Trek TOS game (TV series!) where the devs were very proud they captured fantastic details like McCoy's poc marks and Spock's 5 o'clock shadow shaved human eyebrows.

Last played regularly when 20 was the cap, and T3 greensteel was the top. Was still working towards my T3 lit/lit dual bastard swords.

Didn't do me much good because in any raids worth doing, the bosses cut through 60 ac like butter, and I never had trouble pulling aggro from tanks due to my minimax cuisinart build just with T2s.

After playing about half of the one after Origins, I gave up because I started wondering why normal fighters even exist in a world where invisible people magically appear as they are stabbing you, then immediately disappear.

Who would ever build normal armies when lesser training of thieves would make for vastly better armies? Cheaper and more effective.

"Release it, but without the LAN stuff. We don't want it cutting into our modern Internet gaming stuff, much less hurting the people we have deals with."

Sorry, Einstein: Hard workers may make better role models than geniuses.

This is a retread of a study from 20 years ago that showed praising kids for hard work was better than praising them for being smart. When they gave them a harder problem to solve, the "Wow you must work hard!" kids worked longer before giving up than the "You must be smart!" ones.

Not to sound like I'm on EA's side - but from what bit I have read, the dude sounds like a major Dbag & deserves it.

There're two sides to a story, but pro video gaming is entertainment fluff. EA is under no obligation to let people play in their tourneys and use the fame to tear at them.
