      I don't really care about MMORPGs. Because they're not really RPGs, they're trading games

        Nice that an MMO officially supports Linux. But many people myself included we're burned with MMOs previously which now are dead or in life support. Due to that, I'm not in the mood to pay for a game that very likely will share the same fortune of all the others that precede it.

          One of the saddest trailers I've seen in a while.

            True, 5 to 10 years later the game servers are shutdown and you lost all your effort, happened to me with Tales of Pirates and Angels Online, the publisher IGG became a smartphone game publisher now :/

                Yep MMOs is for immature people with nothing better to do than grind, gold mining or hacking accounts to sell. Also micro transactions while the game costs money so NOPE. Also companies stopping their game developing and switching to mobile apps seems to be a trend among MMO makers. So unless someone actually makes an MMO RPG that you dont have to grind at to keep up with the masses i wont touch a MMO.

                  You're not seeing the whole picture. If you treat MMOs like trading platforms (which they are, in essence), there's money to be made from them. So they're not only for the immature. I'm with you on non-free client+micro-transactions=no, no. And about going mobile, mobile get to shove ads down your throat and that's like a force micro-transaction as far as developer revenue is concerned. So of course they're all going down that path.
