Mark Jacobs, GM/VP of EA Mythic, cleared up any confusion last week regarding Warhammer Online having official forums for players. Are MMOG communities ready to let go of such a long standing tradition and should EA Mythic tread into such untested waters? RadarX looks at traditional forums and provides a few reasons why having them moved to the community might not be such a bad thing.
While history has shown an evolution in forum use, many veterans to MMO gaming will remember the detailed forums of SOE's EverQuest 1, Ultima Online, etc. It was here players gathered to talk, debate, and complain whlie many seemed to be standing at a rock concert hoping to get a glimpse of the elusive developers. While we all may go for different reasons, the fact remained we all feel what we have to say is important and should be heard. What of Warhammer Online?
