LotRO Editorial: How to Kill a Gaming Community

/shout Social interaction FTW!

One thing that makes MMOG's like Lord of the Rings Online a big draw for many people is the social aspect of an online world. Being able to slay orcs and chat with friends is always a plus, but what happens when you can't have that social aspect because some of the key areas for social interaction are taken away?

One of the biggest draws for me and a lot of other people to an MMOG is the community setting and things that inspire social interaction. Let’s face it; an MMOG is nothing more than a chat room with dragons and we like it like that. However, there is an ever growing problem with the social aspect of many MMOG’s.

LotRO's new class comes late to the party, but it is certainly an interesting choice.
