Everyone has a wishlist. But what rises to the top?
Machination had an interesting idea – to trawl through some of the biggest “mmo wishlist” threads on forums out there, and compile a list of most-requested features.
So, what does the modern MMO player want in 2013?
” Character customization: “to make my character unique … from the crowds of other players”
Player impact: “… If I burn down a building I want other players to see it burned down and then if some farmer rebuilds it later, I want the NPCs to remember that it was burned down. I don’t want everything to reset…”
Non-combat classes: Alternate progression “let me increase my level entirely as a baker”, “I want to exclusively play an explorer, a politician, an assassin, a merchant…”
The next most common requests were driven by character and progression. If you’re going to invest 1000 hours in an online world, who wouldn’t want it to add up to something? You’d better be able to define your character how you like… to be more than yet another avatar. Your actions ought to matter in the world, and be able to alter it for better or for worse.”
