Success for MMOs isn't measured at launch. It's measured in sustained subscribers per year after launch.


^ This. It's all about money.

This was also taken when Pre-order Early Access still gave people full access of the game. No one even had to set up a subscription yet...

Just another theme park MMO with slight variations to the formula.

Wake me up when a real sandbox MMO hits the market. Hasn't been anything good since Ultima Online and EVE Online.

People always scream sandbox but rarely support sandbox games.

Because the average MMO gamer is a pansy ass care bear. They want nice and safe "instances" and no penalty for death. When they lose their precious items to another player they whine and moan instead of taking it back or going to buy new stuff they give up.

Sandbox MMOs are also about making your own goals and sticking to them. Too many people want their hand to be held. If there isn't an arrow pointing over an area they get lost and proceed to whine about how "there's nothing to do" when they have an entire goddamned world as their playground to do anything they damn well please.
