I almost miss the carefree days 2011, when the MMO screw-up of the year was such an easy call: the time when a studio deleted an entire MMO from existence
by accident and without any backups. Oops!
But 2012? 2012 is trickier. I mean, you've got charging for hotbars
, $50 hobby-horses
, NCsoft closing a profitable game
, the TERA lawsuit
, the implosion of 38 Studios
, the clownshoes of The War Z
, innumerable banning scandals... we have a lot to choose from. So let's get busy choosing. What do you think was the MMO industry screw-up of 2012?
