The MMO Gamers' All I Want for Christmas List

I know it's a long shot, but what I would really like for Christmas in my MMO is not something Blizzard can deliver, but rather all the players out there. More than anything I would like WoW players to offer some consideration and common courtesy (which unfortunately is not at all common) for their fellow players. It seems to get worse every year, and I would like that to change more than anything. Imagine an MMO where players actually talk to and help each other. Imagine an MMO where players don't queue as a tank, even though they don't know how to nor have the gear to, just to get in a group faster. Imagine an MMO where players actually stay in group for an entire instance and don't AFK to take the dog for a walk, or drop group once they get the piece of gear they wanted. Imagine an MMO where the other players actually realized that they were playing with other humans and not some AI developed to serve their needs and wants alone. ~ Messiah


I'd love some shiny new character models. I know I can't be the only one who is a bit tired of staring at the same character model year after year. Sure, our characters still look pretty good for being eight years old, but I think an update is overdue. Give me Blood Elves that look like Alexstrasza or Night Elves that look...well...anything but how they currently do. At the very least, give us new character models that are on par with the Pandaren models introduced in Mists of Pandaria. Integrating new character models will give WoW a fresh new feel with very little effort. And, on a more personal note, make my Tauren able to feel just as pretty as any panda. ~ Memnock

I would like to see Blizzard continue with the improvements that they’re currently making in World of Warcraft. Pandaria has been an absolute delight so far, and they need to keep that ball rolling and continue innovating in WoW. Pet battles are a prime example of a system mechanic added to an aging game that is just downright fun. The new daily quest / raid finder mechanic for casuals is one of the best things to happen since murlocs. It lets players enjoy the game and see content and raid without the huge commitment or necessary planning and, best of all, it doesn’t break guilds up. You can queue with a large group of your guild mates and still do the dungeon without hunting tons of other players down to join with you. All I want for Christmas is for Blizzard to continue with that trend. ~ Xerin

We've shared our wish lists for MMO gaming in general, and some of our favorite MMOs specifically. What's visions of virtual sugarplums are dancing in your head as we sail off toward 2013? Share your comments below!

Amen Gunky, an ESO beta key would make my year, but I guess it's still early days yet. Couldn't disagree more on the WoW issue though. Aside from the very basics like instancing and PvP, the first sniff of WoW-cloniness is going to make people run like it was a libidinous Hagraven. With brain rot. Cloning is very rarely a good business model, as it gives no incentive for loyal players to change.

I'd be cool with getting into closed beta for Marvel Heroes Online. Really about the only MMO I want to try out that I haven't already.

I think it is still need time for ESO beta.
