    Wink This New Thing - It is Bad

    Ok I have been playing DDO since God was a baby, and before that I was playing PnP even before Gary Gygax was born. It's always been a source of fun and joy for me, and when I joined this game I thought at the time it was my home. But then they brought this new thing into the game. This new thing is going to completely break the game! In the past I used to do it in the old way, and that was fine. I did it like that, I was fine, and nothing ever went wrong. But then there was this new thing! WHY?

    There are many reasons why this new thing will break the game.

    1: The equipment we farmed will have different value now.
    2: The work we did will be easier or harder for subsequent people to do.
    3: It is different.
    4: It is not the same as it was before.
    5: The way it was before is how I want it to remain.
    6: It is new.
    7: I don't like it.

    With all of these factors in mind - and these are just the ones that come to me now, I would like to put forward a petition. Please, please can we stop this new thing now? And in the meantime can I also tell you how qualified I am not to like this new thing. I did that old thing a lot. I was better than anyone in the world at that old thing. I am the master of that old thing. The only master. This is not the reason I dislike this new thing, though. I am the master of this new thing too. Oh no don't get me wrong, I am better at this new thing than any of you, ever, and have been since before I was born. But that old thing was better, and this new thing is bad and wrong.

    Please Devs - take notice of my cries. This new thing is going to make this game into a different game from how it was before. This cannot be allowed to happen. Stop now. You will listen to me, Devs, because we are close personal friends. I have known you all for years. We used to do that old thing together every tuesday lunchtime. One time you said to me, "Slog I will always warn you before I change anything so you can veto it if you don't like it." Well, you didn't. You went behind my back.

    Anyway, I am not complaining. I just want to make it perfectly clear that I am oober, this new thing is bad, and that old thing is the only way that anything should be done.
    It's a game. GAME! Only a game. say it with me now - GAME. There. That's better.

    You forgot 8: Becomming a 12 year educated crack economist overnight brained my damage.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    You forgot to threaten to quit (in 6 months after your subscription is up) if the new thing is not changed back to the old thing.

    The idea behind the new thing is good but the implementation is horrid.

    OP, take it easy, man. I'm aware that you're not a fan of the New Thing, but you need to see it from Turbine's business perspective. The Old Thing, while it was closer to PnP rules, it didn't really have a place in DDO:EU. Stick around for a little bit, you'll see that you'll forget that the New Thing is even there after couple months. Personally I think you're just blowing off steam about the New Thing, but think how many times didn't you curse the Old Thing because it didn't do exactly what you thought it was supposed to do.

    The new thing is fine, you're just playing the game wrong. Try having less fun, that usually works.

    New Things always come along and outshine Old Things. It is the way of Things.

    What a revoltin development.
    Things that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
    • Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
    • Fixing physical defense for Rangers and Rogues. It’s ridiculous that you’re better off wearing Heavy Armor and ignoring your innate feats on these classes.
    • Cannith Crafting.
    • Update the named loot to put them on the same system.
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Fixing all challenges to give us decent XP and ingredient returns for the unreasonable time we have to spend in most of them.

    QuantumFX, Stop trying to highjack this thread.

    We are concerned about the old thing Vs the new thing. Don't confuse it by introducing another thing on top!

    Wrong Thing? Are you talking about tickets to that thing you love?

    I wish this were slashdot, 'cause I'd tag this as "Insightful".

    Henceforth, when I see the splosions over new things (TM), I am linking back to this thread.

    I feel like you are overcome with an urge to strongly dislike this based on your inherant nature to dislike things .
