That's absolutely beautiful. I didn't play Tabula Rasa that much, but to hear that people were that cool and waited in line like that. Its marvelous the communities that come out of MMO's sometimes.

During the beginning of TR closed beta, there was a quest that required a person click on an object, watch a few second animation, followed by the next player having to wait a few seconds before they could click the item. The players (without the direction of the developers) formed a very long line. I waited 90 minutes and when I finished the line was about twice as long as when I got in line. The Devs never caught it during F&F, because there wasn't enough people to cause an issue.

I was both impressed and proud of that group of people.

Yep I remember an event I think I waited 30 minutes to get white dye haha. Was a lot of fun people talking and showing off. Good times.

Some Assembly Required, huh?

Quick! I must re-sub to champions/CoH/DCUO and make an Avengers clone supergroup for the sole purpose of taking a witty screenshot!

To the Batmobile!

That's... even... possible?

I can't tell you how many times in a game I've assumed my place in line only to have countless people come and 'skip' while mocking all of us standing in line that eventually it just falls apart.

I'm still in shocked that there actually was a MMO where people weren't 110% a-hats.

Ah yes, we were very good at standing in lines in TR (or even forming a circle and/or staying out of the ring for Friday Night Fights, etc).

Maybe that's something to be said about small server populations where everyone has a shared camaraderie. Or maybe the game just earned that much of our respect.

Whatever it was, I sure do miss it.

I remember one trivia night on Fallen Earth we all had a blast and formed a line for free booze from one of the GMs. Forming coordinated dance lines, donating and winning some really unique loot, having a pile of cars and motorcycles sitting next to the bunker bar... It's really rather magical when you get a group of mature, fun-loving players who all get together to just enjoy the game world. Today we have far too many players worried about being the greatest player or kicking everyone else's ass, and not enough people who just want to explore the world and experience the great work the developers have put into the game.

Here's to the casual guilds/clans, the event organizers, the role-players, the small dungeon runners, the group questers, the people who help random strangers with quests, and all the other people who make playing MMORPGs a more enjoyable experience for everyone.
