Is he seriously boasting about a simple, logical, obvious-to-anyone thing like that? Even though the concept is easy and obvious, WAR's impl like the rest of the game isn't so hot.

WoW added it in patch 3.1 I think, so what. There are hundreds of changes made in a WoW patch that are like that. Little things that might help people play faster.


He'd take credit for the "invention" of the mouse button that depresses.

Almost everything about this damn game depresses.

Someone needs to remind Mythic that WoW ripping off WAR's queue system doesn't make WAR any better, it makes WoW better.

Paul Barnett: What? You think everything is horrible?

The MMO Gamer: Well, not everything, but I can find cause to gripe about many things.

Take your game, for example.

Paul Barnett: Right?

The MMO Gamer: One of the reasons for that burnout I mentioned to you earlier was the queue system, for instanced PvP combatÖ

Paul Barnett: Where you can join a scenario from anywhere in the world?

The MMO Gamer: Correct.

Paul Barnett: The one that was so good itís been added to other games? That one? 


The MMO Gamer: Well done on getting that right, even though that's probably the whole point of a MMO. But having scenarios as the most efficient way of character advancement drained players from the world which then made it feel more empty. That was a huge problem. Plus scenarios-grinding was the only not-fully-insane way to grind out lvls for Rank 3 and 4.

Paul Barnett: But we got the idea of scenarios right!

The MMO Gamer: Ideas are only one piece of a very big puzzle. Like public quests tha-

Paul Barnett: The one that was so good itís been added to other games? That one? 

The MMO Gamer: Yes, PQs were a great idea. But again, Mythic's implementation of them was poor and short-sighted. There were too many PQs that didn't scale to the number of players in the area, which in turn made them impossible to complete unless you had the right number of players. Tie that in with players going off to scenarios so that most PQs tended to stay empty and you've got a wasted opportunity.

Paul Barnett: But the ideas we've got in WAR are great!

The MMO Gamer: I don't play ideas - I play those ideas contained in game systems designed by Mythic. The execution was rubbish. Just look at RvR whe-

Paul Barnett: War is everywhere!

The MMO Gamer: The fuck it is, and you know it.

That's kind of a running joke though with the WAR presentations. I'm not trying to defend the content or anything but the crappy white sunglasses is a long-established schtick with the WAR team in general, not just Paul.

Yeah, but did they really need to make the translator wear the glasses? I felt really bad for her just having to translate for Paul but to be forced to wear sunglasses too?  Ohhhhh, I see.

It is amazing though, despite my knowing what he was going to be saying I was still shocked by it.

"ALL THE THINGS THAT WERE BROKEN FOR THE AMERICANS, WE'VE FIXED!"

and then the attempt to describe dwarves as " SHORT MEN WITH BEARDS". /wince

He did not prepare a speech at all and just went with it. Just a random spray of words that he felt like shooting off.

To be fair, his presentation was in January, which was well before the current North-South tension level.

True, but it's not exactly unknown in the region.

It'd be like starting a presentation off in Texas with "ALIENS ARE COMING OVER THE BORDER AND YOU NEED TO SHOOT THEM", which I expect to see when Barnett heads up the relaunch of Imperator.

That's his philosophy towards life -- i.e. "let's just wing it". Unfortunately for EA that philosophy is reflected in the game.

APB is that Grand Theft Saints Row MMO that we saw a pic of here a long time ago, isn't it?

I recall the guy in the pic was wearing three hats, and one of his legs must have been much warmed than the other, as he had rolled only one leg of his pants up.

That event sounds ripe for a pie throwing terrorist attack to me.

No, shoes are the weapon of choice today. Pies are too unwieldy and anyways, it's a waste of good pie. If baked goods must be used, I'd go with a fairly heavy armor piercing fruitcake. Something that would leave a dent.

OH man.  This was good.  thanks.
