MMOs.com Podcast – Episode 122: Casuals Are Ruining MMORPGs
MMOs.com Podcast Episode 122 - Omer (@remotayx) and Erhan (@Ehaltay)
This is episode one hundred and twenty-two of the MMOs.com Podcast and we look at the most recent news and happenings in the MMO and gaming world. As always we jumped right into the Weekly Raid, "Do MMORPGs Still Have Room For Elite Content?" We discussed difficulty / raiding in MMORPGs extensively and the current trend of giving casual players better and better rewards without actually earning them. More specifically Omer ranted passionately about "welfare gear" in Final Fantasy XIV where players could get best in slot gear from doing brain dead easy content whereas they had to clear savage tier content previously. The topic of whether developers should make content for the top 1% of players was the highlight of the discussion this week and we had some guests on to share their opinions as well.
