Sit tight, MMO fans, as there’s a shocking revelation we’re about to unleash on you. Ready?

You may not like everything in a hotly anticipated upcoming MMORPG.

I know, I know, after so many years and so many flawless MMOs, like Bless Online, WildStar, and ArcheAge that were so completely perfect that nobody complained about any part of them at all, it’s come to light that the “next big thing” might not completely please everyone. I know, I’m as amazed by this as you are!

This dubious acknowledgement about the upcoming League of Legends MMORPG comes from none other than Riot’s own Greg “Ghostcrawler” Street, who posted the following to Twitter (as spotted by Massively OP):

Sarcasm and snark aside, Street’s absolutely correct, though his salient point will probably be cast aside once marketing for the game shifts into high gear in a few years and Riot tries to convince prospective players that the game is perfect and made for everyone, because that’s what marketing does.

He’s referred to his World of Warcraft background on a couple of occasions, even in a reply to that tweet, which leads one to believe that the League of Legends MMO will resemble that game more so than it tries to break from convention. If you like WoW, that’s great. If you don’t, well, see above (though he may have softened his stance on difficulty just a bit).

Street’s got a lot of other interesting replies in that thread, as pertains to leveling, Tencent’s influence, “maining” a single game, and even petting crabs, so check it out for some intriguing insights into the development of what’s guaranteed to be everyone’s favorite MMORPG ever — unless it isn’t.

  1. God, I hate Riot so much…
    I already knew that an MMO made by Riot Games would be nothing short of absolutely terrible and filled with terrible decisions to the brim, but to know now that Ghostcrawler has any kind of say in its direction whatsoever just killed any little sliver of hope I might have had been trying to keep. And he’s already pulling out the “I worked in WoW” card as if anyone gives two shits, yikes, that’s mega cringe, we’re getting a fucking WoW clone in the 2020’s boyssssss, that’s totally what we need…

  2. wOW sO cLeAveR hAH HAH hAh.

    They’re right they just made me dislike this studio even more. And I am sure they’re game will be unbalance and broken just to keep ever idiot hooked. Just like all the idiots playing League right now.
