    Should have picked ASTA instead of Scarlet Blade IMO. Scarlet Blade did much better than what sceptics/haters predicted and it closed for a different reason from what was predicted. ASTA on the other hand was a disaster everyone (except for Webzen apparently) saw coming from day one and it turned out exactly the way everone expected.

    *Thumbs up guys* 🙂
    All you devs out there take 10m and put more atention into this.
    As for top fives, a few posts back I mentioned something about a Micro Transaction Store Top 10, and while I know it’s not easy to come up with because you’d need to play the games to certain extents to really appraise what goes on in the store, I still believe the kind of competition between publishers that that would generate in a mass scale (where a publisher could brag “Our store is better for the player!”) would actually be good for everyone, and thus I still hope it comes up at some point! I believe that should be the main focus of devs and publishers in the future because if you want to bring MORE players into the “microtransaction world” you need to get rid of the “monster ” that microtranstion has become in a way!

    Really enjoyed the show, hope to see more! My idea: the top 5 non-fantasy mmorpgs.

    People keep forgetting that “free to play” games need to earn money so the game could be up at all. Without any payment it would just be charity lol pay to win options should just cost much more than cosmetics n other stuff

      People will support the game but if the developer start doing dirty stuff then the (support line) get cut off quick
      .(They not a money bag.)

    You got a choice to pick for a MMO game as a player.
    A. Pay to win to be famous on the leader board .
    B. Leave MMO Games alone permanently
    Take or leave the choices are up to you MMO player. (Causal or hardcore)

    • Genji on January 20, 2017

      My answer: B. Leave MMO Games Alone Permanently
      Here my Reason why i calling quit completely on MMO games.
      The Developer are no good that like to get under the rioting ground to make dirty money by making thing up on the media game website Then you got people who are very much brainwashed to death to sit here listening to this fake promise by game Developer.
      The Community is disgusting to max level point where social does not exist anymore in online Games. You got so
      the called (Fanboys) who sit here defend every damn junk on the forum whether it be on Media News game or forums site. Yes the Community has become a nightmare of it own self. There no need to be apart of any Gaming Community anymore permanently.
      The publisher are corrupted along with everything going on the gaming market. (Mess up Real Bad as hell)

      • Meta on January 20, 2017

        Right on Brother! That the Answer.

        • PowerCreep on January 20, 2017

          Pay to win make you smart and cool looking plus you be the ranking board as a king.

          • Bronie on January 20, 2017

            Pay to win does not make you smart and not a good player at all. (Zero Percent)

          • Comsic on January 20, 2017

            This is why the big reason people no longer play MMO games anymore on any genre permanent. It is not going to change.

    id like to see the top 5 mmos the mmobomb hosts are currently playing.

    I like the show idea, looking forward to more

    Wizard Wars was kind of unfortunate, but not surprising at all, MagickaMagicka2 are one of those games that most people have good things to say about, but You never find anyone who actually still plays them.
    I liked the game, but I don’t remember the game ever getting a solid player base, Maybe the controls were too complex for a moba-ish game, and pushed people away, but for whatever reason the game seemed to be doomed from the start.
