You know, Everquest II, I already promised myself that I would not be playing any more subscription games, since I have one sub already and hardly the time to play it. You know that I enjoyed myself greatly the two-and-a-half months that I played you. You know that I even went so far as to try to recruit my better half and another good friend into the game, and that I continued to play on my own , completely unlike myself, when both of those attempts petered out. You know that one of the major reasons – perhaps even the only reason – I decided not to resubscribe after the second month was that I had hit a point at which I no longer understood my purpose in the game, and was frustrated by being constantly directed to EQWiki simply for locations to level up in, rather than being part of a connected story that made me feel involved in the world and made me feel like I was gaining power and influence.
You understand, then, that your proposed Storyteller feature and your Golden Path would be pretty much, oh, exactly what I want in an MMO. You understand that right this minute I want to rush home and resubscribe and pick up my level 37 conjurer where I left off.
You really are going to make me have this fight with myself, aren’t you?
Edit: Oh, wonderful, and you’re talking about streamlining travel, too? [Swoon] Stop, stop, it’s too much. I promised myself!
