    Default Trion the Trend Setter

    Looks like the big dogs are learning a thing or two from the new kid. Both WoW and EQII state that they will be providing frequent, free, content updates going forward rather than xpacs.

    Wonder where they got the idea?

    To my knowledge. Warhammer offered and did this before Trion ever did.

    But Warhammer was never a threat so nobody took notice.
    Seems they are studying the playbook this time out.

    Yeah, AC1 and AC2 both had large monthly updates for a long time, and even with more or less small Xpacks every month people still complained about lack of content. No real wonder why Turbine stopped supporting that method.

    NCSoft seems to *want* to do the same thing, as Lineage and Aion both have gotten free Xpacks, but NCSoft's patch turn around is terribly slow.

    It makes sense that companies want to do faster patch cycles, more patches mean more people stay between pay cycles. You got two years between Xpacks, and you find after a year or so population drops as people get bored and explore other games or drop the genre until next Xpack.
