So much rancour. Why so mad?
I blame the notorious "mmo hoppers". We all know them, they are the ones that tell you every 2 months about the new MMO they are playing and how you should try it and its so much better than the previous one.
No really this one is the real deal and the updates are so good and etcera.
These people are inflating the communities interest in these games, which we all agree are 95% identical. Heaps of preorders, big bump in subscribers after launch, loads of hype and then what?
Apathy sets in. It dawns on them that they have been fooled again. Oh sure there is some moaning about how the game is broken, balance issues, gold farmers, auction house issues or blaming the it on a "poor community". Smoke and mirrors, you got bored with it but don't want to admit you wasted so much money on it so you make it their fault. You were lied to but its all good because Guild Wars 2 is out soon and this time it will be different!
There really should be a documentary made about this madness (mass hysteria?) along the lines of Indie Game the movie, but naturally more depressing.
