Was it Lineage or Guild Wars that you let me play? That's what I was referencing with the wolf.

It was GW.

As far as your description there, it sounds fine, except for the fact that I can't stand RPGs. I don't like the outcome of an event or interaction being determined by statistics, rather than my own actual effort.

And that was exactly why I let you play GW! There was no stats. You just didn't stick with it long enough.

I click a button. My character performs an attack. I click a button. My character performs an attack. I equip a better weapon. My character pefroms the same attack, but with more hitting power. The enemy is hit a random number of times. We stand there like idiots, hitting one another, until one dies. I don't consider that active control. I'm not saying that an entry level character should be able to beat every single character it comes across. But for it to be so out of your control irks me.

Maybe you should have talked to someone in town, been like, 'Hey, want to go out and kill stuff TOGETHER?', which is the point of an MMO!!!!!!!

LOL. It's not the defeat or difficulty that's the problem. It's the control. Running around beating up things and delivering letters and moving around swarms of bees does not a good time make, alone OR with some other person. I realize that some people like side quests. I just want a main story that I can get immersed in.

And GW is one of the few MMOs with a story. Like I said, just didn't stick with it long enough. It's like Bleach, it gets better over time.

Again I say! Not far enough!

Maybe you should go play World of Warcraft. Seems like everyone loves that. ^o)

Seriously, I've played the field of MMOs. Lineage 2 is where it's at.

Thank you. You can consider yourself now added to the list of Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, GTA, RTS, and RPG fans that I've managed to out-stubborn.

Oh Lord. Don't even get me started on RTS games.

I only have Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings LAN parties every other weekend.

Hard to find matches?

I would buy it and play with you, if I actually was good at that game. ^o)


Oh don't worry about that, get the game! I don't have a problem beating you all the time

It's not so much about it being hard to find matches. It's hard to find people who won't get all bent out of shape over losing only to disconnect on you so that the loss (or the win) won't record.

I dunno. I've had years of practice

I know you're batting for the FF team though; it could get interesting &)
