    Cool I found this thread funny.

    I think with all the various MMO players from other games debating on these forums which game is better, certain similarities, or things they like or dislike it has at times made for interesting banter. Not once have I seen anyone representing Trion discourage discussion of other games.

    However, one mention of Rift on the wow boards and it warrants this blue post. :P And the topic gets locked, me thinks Blizzard is a little worried about Trion.

    Seriously? I feel for them, it's worse there than here with the cross-MMO hate. Would you want to put up with 10 threads opening every 10 minutes about the same topic? It's highly frustrating to deal with as a Moderator/Developer. You guys go all up in arms as soon as someone mentions WoW here, is it any different? The moderators are trying to keep it civil there.

    I did a bunch of things and a bunch of stuff; now I'm just a casual player.

    Reality is a lie we tell ourselves, when we fear the truth.

    If you do a search on the forums for Rift, if fails. I think it is blocked too.
    The %1 that is dependent on the %2 failed to start because of %3 -- Microsoft error (Yeah I have no clue what it means, but saw it in the event viewer one day)

    I can see both sides, I am sure they are tired of Rift threads over there as we are WoW threads over here. Ends up turning into a flame fest.

    (I do agree the Blue was a bit harsh, to the point, but harsh)

    He is perfectly correct. Its world of warcraft general discussion, it has nothing to do with "they're scared" its an annoyance to the player base.

    There have been many "wow killers" which have all, well... not killed wow.

    I've always found the blunt responses from their community managers pretty amusing, myself.
    What I want to see in a next-gen MMORPG:
    • A more active combat experience, moving away (but not entirely discarding) stat sheets and random number generators to determine combat results and instead gives more credence to dodging, blocking, and timing.
    • An immersive questing experience that doesn't require you to talk to and turn in quests to NPCs yet can still tell a story.

    Or it could be because, SHOCKINGLY AMIRITE?, the WoW forums have rules too. If someone's too stupid to find the "off-topic" button then there' no surprise it gets locked.

    Yawn.

    Thoroughly against a *cross-server* dungeon finder.

    I just think its funny how on top of it they were. I mean most of the times on those forums you get the feeling they never even read what you write when its important. Yet the very mention of another game and in come the forum police.

    Oh I agree, it is kinda like he just snapped his fingers in the z formation and said "Aw hellz naw gurl, you didn't go there." But showing frustration isn't a good thing from a company standpoint. (From a human standpoint, yeah I can agree completely!)

    Thing is they have no offtopic anymore. So wanderer's seem lost to where to post. (Albeit I do agree, posting about other games on other forums isn't a good idea)

    If they'd allow even one thread about it, they wouldn't have so many people starting other threads.

    I dunno, I lost whatever respect I had for the WoW forum people a long time ago. Blizzard could easily afford to hire a few more people and do a good job of running their forums, but they don't.
