EQ2's Dangling Carrot
We all play MMO's for a reason. Some people even form longstanding loyalties to certain MMO's, but is begs the , "Why?" What keeps people coming back for more? Savanja tackles this question by tapping her own personal experience.
In my years of MMO gaming, I've found an interesting thing; there are an awful lot of people who become loyal to their chosen game. And come hell or high water, they will stick with it! This, of course, isn't always true. Apparently you can drive off an entire playerbase if you really try, ala SWG. But that takes true talent.
I've been playing Everquest II since pre-launch. Through all the many live updates, changes, and class and zone revamps, I soldiered through. In fact, the game that I play now is quite a bit different than the game that I played during beta. But not once did I consider not playing.
Follow the carrot...do it....it's at EQ2 - TenTonHammer.
