Wow, a pronouncement from Arenanet that does not sound like the whole thing is a PR exercise. It seems sensible and may actually work. But with no mention of prize money, it's dead in the water. Still just posing as esport. It's not esport unless there is big money at stake.

This is like giving Joe Lunchbucket the ability to shut down any corporate web site on any whim, no legal fees, no court proceedings, just brown shirt dictatorial "off with their heads" power.

My dream:

They don't deserve to get bailed out, as they are just trying again to milk whatever they can from AO without putting resources into it.

AO is the only thing Funcom produced that will stand out over time.

Someone at Funcom has a brief moment of clarity, puts AO out as open source, fans mod it into AO2, kind of like how the whole Freespace thing played out.

Absolutely loved AO but got frustrated with the never ending "real soon now" updates and meaningful changes.

Galaxy on Fire on my mobile. Incredible graphics, wasted on a stupid simulation of a cracker jack toy balance the BB in the center of a circle game that is supposed to represent mining. Throw in the natural lag of your average mobile accelerometer and you have frustration cubed.

Can't wait to see what the gotcha on this will be.

Paid as in "if you expect to continue to get free games from us, you better know which side your toast is buttered."

This is what happens when a previously niche hobbyist game/IP is picked up by a corporation used to dumbing down and mass marketing everything.

I have to admit GW2 has a few really well done zones and dungeons, but there seems to be no middle ground in terms of players, there are the follow the mob people who only do zergy events or PVP and then there are the elitists who do dungeons and high level fractals.

The dungeons and fractals tend to be cookie cutter builds and team combinations, that leave you out in the cold if you run anything other than a warrior or a "insert flavor of the month" class with on skill that makes a particular instance more manageable.

Big limited time server wide events have always been a disaster with this game, no thanks.

It's not just esports, but MMO's in general need across the board regulations regarding employee participation in their games public online world. Can you say "insider trading?"

Would not hurt to crack down on the illegal gambling that happens with mystery packs, like cash store items that have a random chance to contain valuable items.

WOD was the last straw for me. This just sounds like WOD II, more NPC card game baloney, 10 more levels of the same old reskinned stuff we have seen and done a 1000 times. Same old broken large group PVP.

Poorly balanced classes, solution add another "do it all face roll class" that can solo most of the game. They continue to move the game from a social MMO to a single player game where other players are just background noise.

Also when they nixed flying mounts, and came up with the lame gliders, that was just too much korporate cost cutting. Even the cheesyest Asian f2p MMO's have flying mounts.

I stopped reading Time years ago when they started selling the front cover to what ever movies and/or product paid the most that week.

I have noticed the quality has been on a steady decline over the years.
Just look at that cover pic. Must have taken an intern all of two minutes with a search engine, and a graphics program.

I don't think adding a few more polygons to a Supreme Commander 2 clone is going to make this game a hot product.

But, still we like to see RTS genre still getting love in this age of MOBAS, and card games.

Kudos for more camera options, it's always such a waste to have your hefty graphics powerhouse, displaying a finely detailed world, that you only get one or two fixed cam angles on.

Tie fighters followed the WWII German ME109 and the Japanese Zero design form which was fast, light and maneuverable with little to no armor. They were supposed to be, and were in the first Star Wars movie, very hard to hit, but all it took was one hit to take them out.

This vid shows Tie fighters that are somewhat easy to hit and taking multiple hits with little to no damage or performance degradation. Someone did not study the base material.

You can see it in his eyes, the fire is gone, but he grits his teeth and grinds through the spiel like a trooper. It's clear he is getting bored with the whole thing. Almost time to walk away, cash in an off shore account, to some new pie in the sky.

Like a true troll with no facts to back him up, he resorts to attacking Mr. Smart personally.

If he really thought a deliverable game was in sight, he would have acted like a professional, defected the question, and continued to plug the game.

Looks like a super scripted rail shooter rather than an "open world"
What ever, it looks real purdy. Nice Vid. Remote controlled bomb thing is cool.

As each week slips away since the release of the movie, it looks more and more like the software house involved just plain can't deliver. Each day that passes now leaves the buzz surrounding the movie less and less,

Very nice CGI, but gameplay, not so much. Joins the Warhammer jinxed IP club where the universe conspires against any decent game seeing the light of day for that IP.

News Comments > Activision Blizzard Financials; WoW at 5.6M Subs
33. Re: Activision Blizzard Financials; WoW at 5.6M Subs Aug 5, 2015, 08:43 Bub
 
I really liked WOW for a while, but the last year has shown that it is in a rut. The same old game play, only cosmetic changes and nickle and dime funny hats and sanctioned cash shop gold sales. The straw that did it for me was when they announced the cancellation of "Titan" the supposed next generation Blizzard mmo and Wow's replacement. No statement to the effect they are going back to square one, or trying a new approach. No the best you can hope for is more reskins of the same basic engine and gameplay while the developer resources have been shifted to the much more easy to code card game and a MOBA.

5 million puts them in the same ball park as GW2, another tired and wasting away game.

Meanwhile we are seeing an explosion of polished slick repackaging of the Minecraft creative sandbox world building games. You can have card games and MOBAs, I am going with creative world building games for now.
