I was dubious about the permadeath pvp Salem and now I read that Dreamlords wants players to capture as much territory as possible but that it regularly resets.

A big part of the attraction of any MMO for most players is that of achievement - players accrue levels, gold, equipment etc. and they keep it. I know it's early and we don't have all the details yet but based on what we do know...

... it sounds like these developers have a Sisyphus complex.

Of note, Paradox is a publisher, most of their titles are made by other companies, including Mount & Blade. Dreamlords has been released several times by several companies, Paradox is the latest to try and turn it into a profitable venture.

Salem sounds interesting and the year's line up looks promising, but we'll have to see how it actually turns out.
