But no amount of bonuses or incentives will make me take risks with my financial security. Turbine can go take a flying leap after these changes - they'll not get a single cent from me again.
I dont know what it all means, but with all the commotion about this i just followed the link provided and requested removal. Theres enough people raising possible security issues that got me nervous enough to do it.
Gary Gygax quotes
The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience.
There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you are involved in, whether its a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.
Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, its not a game.
When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, than many online and computer run RPGs will move toward actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of "being there" anymore than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.
The secret we should never let the game masters know is that they don't need any rules.
I think I must be missing some information here, if the changes are to the DDO Forums then wouldn't most personal and CC/PP info be fine as it's not on this database but that of the Turbine site?

And Turbine hasn't said a single solitary word that they've taken any steps to protect our information any better then they did LotRO players' information.
I'll see you all on the forums after the changeover!
No one in the world ever gets what they want
And that is beautiful
Everybody dies frustrated and sad
And that is beautiful
They didn't listen to us at all. In fact - we just got nothing but spin and placation from Turbine when we spoke out against the Wall. It wasn't until gaming sites talked about the furor and questionable decision-making behind OfferWall, making Turbine look very bad in the process, that Turbine took it down.
I'm perfectly chilled out. And I'm not wrong, either.
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.
