    Default Why is there so much talk about WoW?

    Seriously, why is there so much talk about WoW by the Devs, the people who play this game, and the people who tried it and don't like it. I, for one, don't buy into all the WoW hate. I can't tell you how many negative reviews I've read about this game that the only reason why people think it's bad is because it's a "WoW clone". For one thing, I fail to see how following the mold of the single most successful MMO in the history of MMO's is a bad thing. That's like saying that Kobe Bryant is a bad basketball player because he is compared to Michael Jordan, it doesn't make any sense.

    But this is not WoW, this is Rift. Instead of focusing on how Rift compairs to WoW, why don't we focus on Rift. Is the game perfect? No, but neither is any other MMO. I just think that too many people are wanting a perfect product, and I think that is asking way too much. I think that if more people would just allow themselvs to be entertained by this (or any other for that matter) game instead of just trying to point out everything that is "wrong" with it, things would be a lot better.

    Saying that Rift, overall, is "WOW-like" in gameplay is like saying that Call of Duty 4 is "Doom-like". It's a generalization that doesn't mean much. But some elements are literally straight from WOW.


    Like the auction house is literally STRAIGHT from WOW. The only games I know that have an auction house exactly like WOW is WOW and Rift.

    And it's not even a good auction house. I have no idea why they didn't invent their own, or at least copy it from a better game. EVE has a fantastic auction house -- easily the best in the whole genre. Why copy the crappy WOW auction house?

    The crafting system is straight copy-paste from WOW as well. Again, the only games I know that have a crafting system exactly like WOW is WOW and Rift.

    And again, it's not a great crafting system. It's functional but it was mediocre in WOW and it's mediocre in Rift. Why not improve on it? Why not make their own system from scratch?


    It makes sense to use WOW as a baseline, just like WOW used the other MMORPGs at the time as a baseline, but some things were copied over which should have been improved on.

    (Incidentally, the warfronts are mostly straight from WOW as well. And, once again, instanced PvP mini-games are a mediocre concept which Rift copied without improving upon.)

    Uh, EVE Online is a perfect MMO. It can't be argued because it's true. No MMO out there compares to EVE.

    Because people like to hold on to their hate for something trivial, working tirelessly to dethrone a game that did nothing to them.
