Yup, I can't stand it either. That whole genre of twitch gaming tends to bring out the worst in people. I love the fact that MMOs tend to be a bit more on the slower, thinking, progression side of gaming. From getting down the muscle memory for pressing the button to activate the right ability for a given scenario to endurance battles, I derive far more pleasure when my gaming doesn't result in sweating in front of my PC.

I disagree. They set it up perfectly for a large number of people to experience endgame- which making the top equivalent to weeks-long grinds against any given mob replusive to the majority at best, fatal to endgame play at worst if your 50's all get stuck watching endless hardcore videos of boss kills made by guilds slapping their own backs for having beaten their head against a virtual wall until it finally broke.

But I have a solution. Put those empty snowy swathes of Ilum to good use and add in some more World Boss-level mobs, along with Ops-level and L50-group encounters. There's your hardmode- nasty opponents and all the enemy players you can handle trying to kill you while doing so. Heck, see my earlier posts- you can even set it up so they're spawnable by a raid group rather than being camped like some EQ dragon that only pops every week or so and have them become credit sinks in the process. And for less hardmode, you can have them in PvE areas too.

Forget instances. Instances are closets to shove people into, carefully controllable situations where hardcore guilds endlessly repeat themselves grinding through trash mob after trash mob, instance after instance, linear journeys that are written down in numerical orders, unvarying, robotic, ultimately farmfests and boring timewasters. You take the big mobs. You put them out on the worlds with whatever escorts/spawns you want when a raid engages them. And leave it at that. Flashpoints and OP's should be story-related, and we can leave the real loot-grinders to a minimum.

You mean FFXI, and this is incorrect. Take it from someone who soloed plenty in the teens and above on that exact game. (FF12 isn't an MMO)

Especially nowadays, where they put in plenty of solo options for leveling up. That viewpoint of yours is about 5 years old at this point...actually, I was doing soloing from the first month of NA release, so meh to even that. Now, group play straight up was -better- for exp than solo due to downtime. And that definitely led to a more socially tight bond, since you actually needed your fellow player to go far, fast.

Yes FFXI. Didn't spell check that right. I agree group play was the best I have ever experienced but the fact is unless you were willing to spend 1+hrs in the game for a chance to get any XP whatsoever was annoying.

i disagree, you dont make a 300 million dollar game for the 10%.

this game is supposed to cater to the casual player that takes them 3 months to hit 50.

I love the lack of epeen swinging. Makes the community so much nicer, doesn't it?
