I don't understand how they miss the point of MMOs. I mean they screw up the gimmes:

Feels good to play.
-Good response to player controls
-Movement and actions are effective to gameplay

Unique
-Multiple classes/roles to choose from without redundancies
-Different from other MMOs

Progression
-There's always ways to improve your character

Balance
-Each class should be strong in some way

If an MMO fails on any of those things, it fails entirely imo. But instead they focus on things like pretty graphics. As if we're signing up for flight simulators

Vehicles: finally the classes are balanced.
It's not always about winning, sometimes it's just about pissing the other guy off.

Yea, maybe that is it. In a vehicle, my warrior doesn't suck so bad compared to everyone :)

just about any chain of quests u get into in the new WoW exspansions thats over 10 quests long, you can bet there will be some kind of vehicle fight or mounted combat fight.

wintergrasp is a rvr zone in which each side gets to build seige vehicles.

theres a 5 man dungeon in which u have to ride dragons around and kill bosses with

theres a 10 and 25 man dungeon in which u get vehicles similar to whats in wintergrasp

and with this new patch they've released the new pve content AND bg are both mounted/vehicular.

i havent done the new bg, but i think i read somewhere you can fly and fight at the same time in it. which sadly doesnt excite me in the least bit, not in WoW anyways.

Got to 30 on one toon, 40 on another and 20 on the third and rarely enjoyed any of them really. I'd say that was enough of a chance. Besides it was like the old WoW PvP system the first to 40 were usually the ones on top so it was less about skill and more about play time. Did that shit once, wasn't doing it again.

The game actually looks pretty well made. They may have learned from their mistakes in the past, who knows. I may just check it out.

ncsoft isnt actually the developer of a lot of those games you guys realize that?

They produce ($$) and publish/distribute games made by actual gaming studios. For example Guild Wars was actually created by arenanet ( 3 guys who made battle.net and wow).

It doesn't matter if they aren't the developer... anything they've published/distributed has been garbage.
