It really does seem that captain dickhead is trying to crashfail this game while pretending on the surface to the investors that he's tried to save their sinking ship, so that he can then turn around and buy the code/tech/etc for peanuts. On top of being batshit insane, of course.

Hee hee.  I tried the trial prior to and after the 2.0 upgrade. It was funny how Dr. Dumb blasted Alganon for being a copy of WoW, and said how they have these new great starting areas etc, etc.

Well the new starting areas are like this:

After you create a character,  you get a fly by with narration which is exactly like WoW.  Unbelievable.

Once there,  you start a short " go to and talk to these people "  quest, where the npcs are within 20 feet of each other, then enter a teleporter and are unceremoniously dropped into the 1.0 starting areas with the same  quests as the earlier version.  The new improved starting area takes about 3 minutes or less to complete.   Everything is exactly the same except the interface and the item shop.   Performance is worse as well.

Bravo good Doctor, Bravo.  awesome, for real

Last week I received an e-mail from Alganon, announcing their launch.

I thought I'd share this:

Quote
"Traditionally, massively multiplier online games have been about three basic gameplay pillars - combat, exploration and character progression," Serek Dmart continued. "In Alganon, in addition to these we've added the fourth pillar to the equation; a story

Good stuff, eh?

I wonder how long it will be until he accuses SWTOR of stealing his ideas.

Well I wasn't simply referring to the use of story as part of games. (Homer had that).

I meant the language used by SWTOR here:

Quote
Star Wars: The Old Republic will be similar to other MMOs but with several key innovations. Traditionally MMOs are built on three pillars; Exploration, Combat, and Progression. We at BioWare and LucasArts believe there is a fourth pillar: Story.

http://www.swtor.com/info/faq#351

I think it was the swtor hype wagon that coined the phrase "fourth pillar".


I must say though that looking at Stormwaltz's link rather made me pine for better days.

Was that a stealth edit or does the forum automatically prevent DS from being mentioned?
