Trying to remember, but as some point in DDO I think the main market area got seriously damaged or something. Just thought I'd mention it (I know the list isn't supposed to be complete).

I don't play EVERYTHING.

Well, OK. But still, it's cool to see MapleStory do what it's doing. Great list! Made me miss playing many of these titles, though. Tabula? /cry Matrix Online? Whhaaaa!

@Ocho Well you know why New Jersey has so many toxic waste dumps and Washington D.C. has so many lawyers and politicians? New Jersey got to pick first. :)

I still liked Asheron's Call 2's cataclysm, if I remember it correctly. The world would slowly rebuild each content patch, which was a pretty cool concept.

Why do people keep saying it's out already? Surely if it was out then Amazon would have already delivered my pre-ordered copy?? I'm sure they would not have failed... again... to deliver something I ordered months ago?

To be clear, EQ2 is what happens if you tick off a pantheon of Gods and then fail to kill said Gods. Unlike the pansies of the EQ2 dimension, EQ1 PCs had no such problem.

@Skai

I was going to mention that... The killing of the Sleeper on Sullon Zek should be seen as a Cataclysm.... At least Brad McQuaid thought so.... =]

I'll add one: the reboot of Neocron with the launch of Neocron 2, which saw half of the game's factions exiled from our comfortable apartments in Pepper Park to a wrecked and irradiated broken dome city on the other side of the Wastelands.

It's really interesting to look at the SWG:NGE fiasco and compare it to WoW: Cataclysm. Both games ended up being almost completely revamped but Blizzard went about it the right away by giving plenty of information and, more importantly, rationales for why things were being changed. SOE, on the other hand, coded the NGE in secret and then dropped it on the playerbase with two days notice and then refused to admit that they had made a mistake when 75% of their players vanished within 30 days.

I'm not a Blizzard fan boy by any means but I do have to applaud how Blizzard went about breaking their game and putting it back together again successfully. SOE, as always, can die in a fire as far as I'm concerned.

Too funny.

I was just browsing an old SW forum I used to visit reading through a few of my old posts and came across this one (http://holonet.swrpgnetwork.com/showthread.php?postid=147327#post147327). In it, I responded to a person complaining that the learning curve was steep and that you couldn't play a character of the likes of Luke, Han or Leia let alone a Jedi. I replied why that was a GOOD THING.

It's ironic that every reason mentioned in that post as to why SWG was great was later invalidated by SOE, which is why it became to many of us such a horrible game.

At the end of beta for Asheron's Call 1 (1999), a comet appeared, cities were destroyed, and fire elementals rained from the sky. It was the first test of the game's live event tech.

There was also a contest to reconstruct a prophesy from fragments scattered throughout the world - the winner got a unique magic staff when the game went live.

NGE. It is kinda like that scab on a wound that never quite heals.
