Response to Lessons Learned Regarding Learning Lessons
When I mentioned there has been a lot of lessons-learned with the MMORPG genre, I meant mostly about the current ones, and how they've coped with problems that have come up. Compare AC to when it first shipped to now.
Its like comparing Diablo II from when it first shipped two now. At least now you can play it, as compared to when playing online was a dream we could only think about in the beginning.
I don't expect it to be cheat-free, but thats not a cut on Blizzard. There is nothing that is cheat-free, nor will there ever be.
I do agree that Blizzard pretty much screwed up the balance in the expansion, effectively making any character besides the sorceress a variant. At least they got it back in line with classic Diablo. Mages rule.
I have a feeling that World of Warcraft may very well be a FPS version of Diablo II as far as gameplay goes. I myself am more interested in the role-playing aspect of it. And in that, I think this game will have the potential.
Will there be überbuilds? Most assuredly. Just like the Og Mage rules in Asheron's Call (from what I've heard).
Will the presense of these builds detract from the game as a whole? Possibly. They don't bother me much though in D2, and I doubt they will there. I'm happy playing my hardcore Jedi Assassin.
