Every patch that has ever nerfed paladins in WoW. Because I likes to roll OP'd son.

About a year ago there was a patch in Lotro - I forget the name or number of it.
However, it was the one that caused all the NPC (and pet) AI to go into 'anti exploit' mode every second moment.
It also changed the RK's bug zapper sound effect to a less 'zappy' one, and completely neutered my LM's CC abilities, along with a host of other game-changing (at the time) issues that weren't on my want list.

Whilst I don't remember the specific patch detail any more than that, what I do know is that it caused me to unsub immediately, only to return last month.

So, yes, one patch caused me to stop giving money to Turbine for a full year. /ragequit ftw

(Thoroughly enjoying my recent return though) :D

I want SWG to be rolled back to 2003 to the patch where the cities and vehicles got added in. However I'd want them to add things that have been added since like collections and making your own quests and JTLS. Though I would want them to be modified so they match the player driven crafted economy. Also things like removing fast travel from JTLS so you have to wait 10 mins at Starports. Not only does this make the galaxy feel bigger but it is social content. I met lots of friends from them Starport waits. I'd also want things like TEF and and all the old hardcore mechanics that they slowly patched out to stay in.

For me all that game needed in 2003 was content and balancing. Instead SOE added Jedi and the CU and NGE, therefore ruining the whole game.

Totally agree! SWG was a game I just used to love exploring up until that patch. Then everyone wanted to be jedi and it detracted from the full game experience.

I'd have to agree as well.

In my opinion if Sony was to announce an expansion that brought in pre CU/NGE servers with a graphical upgrade it would be the best thing they could ever do for the game.

Venekor said it. SWG's CU patch is what I would take back (assuming that it takes all later patches with it, so bye bye NGE as well).

What would I pick aside from SWG? Free Realms. The Snow Days update in December essentially NGE'd Free Realms. I would like that patch to get taken away as well.

Speaking of SOE, I would would like the December 2009 Free Realms "Snow Days Patch" rolled back to the original combat system. SOE seems to like messing around with major dumbing-down of their combat systems. It was already pretty simple to begin with.... now it's....
1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2.1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2(maybe a "3" once in a while.

Oops. I didn't read far enough down. UltimateQ beat me to the 'SOE Free Realms version of the NGE' reference. By the way, if anyone from SOE reads this... I will never play another SOE game because of this annoying habit of yours.

The Combat Upgrade in Galaxies. I loved the game so much, but wasn't super focused on the levelling aspect, since you didn't have to grind to really enjoy it.

After the patch I woke up naked in a river somewhere in the woods. It was an unpleasant suprise, to say the least.

Galactus "The destroyer of worlds" patch

Totally SWG, loved it pre NGE, after the NGE I too woke up naked but in the middle of the desert...

The patch ruined the game for me, havent looked at the game for more than about 2 days since...do keep trying it though to see if SOE have managed to do anything decent with it.

For me it was the loss of ability to auto attack targets that sucked the most, but I'm sure everyone has an opinion on it.

The NGE in SWG for me also. I would still be playing the game if it were not for that.

I would like to see the SWG CU patch of April 2005 rolled back to Pre-CU game play, when the game was truly skill-based with limitless potential. It may have prevented the unwanted and most destructive SWG patch of all time...the NGE.

It's should probably be pointed out to those that never played SWG that both CU and NGE were patches - not expansions, and therefore both qualify by the article's rules!

And yeah... Combat Upgrade in that for me.

+1 for the CU and NGE in SWG, killed what was a great game for me and all of my friends

CU & NGE. Enough said.

Back when you really felt like a small person in a huge galaxy.
Back when you really created your own adventure - not live some
iconic characters life.
Back when it was cool to see a jedi.


sigh... That has to be one of the all time worst changes ever made to
a genuinely GREAT MMO. Like taking something that has all the
potential in the world and just smashing it into dust and dumbing it
so far down there is little trace of what used to be.

WoW patch 2.0, basically rewarding people now for honor points, that killed world PvP. Even though I was only level 30 or so when the TM/SS fights went on it was still a blast to be a part of.

And if by patch I can get away with saying expansion it would have been BC.
