Mr. Tact wrote on Sep 14, 2021, 08:15:Emphasis mine; I respectfully disagree with the use of "entire" in this statement. Apple built most of their platform, but leveraged the work of giants. Many Bluesnews readers were reading this site on Matrox Millennium graphics cards when the first 3D cards started coming to the market. Hardware 3D graphics would not be where they are today without games like Quake from id Software, and Unreal from... wait for it... Epic Games. What was Apple doing when the revolution was happening? Innovating hockey pucks into mice?Benzer wrote on Sep 13, 2021, 13:55:If they thought they could get away with it, they would. That said, not the best analogy. Apple built and maintains their entire platform, can't say that for ISPs. Apple's platform is connected to the Internet, but is separate from it.
I feel like every ISP should be asking for a 30% cut of every business transaction that occurs over the internet service they provide.

Just a heads up to any future developers thinking the epic store is great...my friends and I don't even use epic beyond collecting free games just to say we have. Not even installed as you can claim them from the webpage. 132 games so far and not a single one paid for. Bigger than my steam library of 112 games that were all 100% purchased.

But you are over looking that MMOs tend to have progression and no match making. Progression means getting stronger via things other than skill and knowledge (i.e. geared up). Combine that with PVP means the death of the casual player, and the death of the casual player means that all that is left are the few hardcore players competing to stomp the ever dwindling trickle of newbs that try the game out. Eventually everyone realizes no one is having fun, servers are merged as the player base shrinks, and eventually the servers are shut off.jamiedj99 wrote on Aug 5, 2021, 02:50:
MMO Players are like 5% off all gamers put together and those PVP players are like 5% of this 5%. and whats funny is that 5% of all all these 5% of like the hard core pvpers. So just about any game dev company knows not to cater to this fraction of a fraction of a %
Even if those stats were remotely true, you're drawing the wrong conclusion. All of the most popular games these days are online PVP-based, many of them exclusively, so pretty much any game dev company would love to capture some of that market... It's not a bad idea to go about that in a way that isn't just shitting out yet another BR. They wouldn't be going after the traditional MMO player, they'd be trying to get PVPers interested in an MMO.

Maybe by posting how much you don't care you'll find that special someone who will read how much you don't care and connect with you and then you can not care together. Wouldn't that be special. I hope it works out for you.
What ever, just release Diablo 2 Resurrected and Diablo 4. I don't care if they respect women or not. I don't care if they respect men or not. Jesus, the media are worse than any employer once they smell blood in the water.
