Last week, you may recall our coverage
on Tom Chick's "5 Ways MMOs are broken
" and Scott Jenning's rebuttal article
. This week brings a new story to the table of rebuttal with Trembling Hand
's author Tim writing a post on his 10 ways to fix the problems with MMOs
Tim is in full agreement
with Chick on how broken MMOs are these days, as he too has felt the wear and tear of the genre. Tim's newest post, however, points to the many areas where MMOs could improve, such as added AI to monsters, removal of classes and levels and moving towards skill based systems, and even something as simple as encouraging grouping through experience bonuses and the reduction of chain quests.
Tim's full article is a lengthy read, but includes many great points and is worth checking out
