What is the next evolution in MMO’S.
What next thing is coming down the line that a new game will implement into a MMO that will revolutionize the genre.
I have been playing DDO sense the beginning and have been waiting for a ground breaking game to come out.
I have to admit with my limited play time I haven’t really been looking. I thought once something great came out, word of mouth would spread and everyone would gravitate toward the new game like they did WOW and all other MMO’s would follow suit.
However I’m not sure what that will be.
When Star Wars, Skyrim, Neverwinter , Guild Wars all came out I let other people play them. My attitude was wait and see. All my friends eventually came back to DDO.
I’ve been trying to think what type of game would pull me away from DDO.
I tried WOW didn’t like it. My son plays League of legends I tried it and it didn’t hold my interest. I also played COD with my son that was fun for a while but lost interest once we accomplished most of the goals.
One thing that could change is if you could feel the difference between each weapon.
When I play COD I can feel the difference between each gun and your skill with each weapon makes a big difference. When I swing a great axe or SOS or falchion I can see the difference in damage but do not feel the difference when I swing it. When I shoot a crossbow in ddo I press tab and shoot not much skill. When I play cod and use the crossbow a lot more skill is involved. A sniper in COD takes a lot of skill, when you shoot a bow in DDO hit tab and shoot arrow not much skill. It would be nice to be able to feel the difference between a Short Bow and a Composite Bow.
The skill is in the building of your character. I look at each of my characters the way I would look at a race car. My level one race car is pretty slow and as I level it up I can feel the difference between each level and if I level it up right and get the right equipment for it at level 28 I should be able to solo EE.
Is there interest in combining leveling up your character and leveling up your weapon in a MMO. Where you can feel the difference as you improve your weapon.
I’m just curious as to your thought on what the next big thing will be.
