The charm of the battle arena genre is parachuting in with nothing, no skill abilities, no weapons, running for some. In paladins...It just feels off. And already the beta footage is just that: Snipers trolling the map as they pop out, cap players far off, and run under cover to get a healers full heal, rinse and repeat as the non sniper just gets farmed. Of course it might be balanced, but as is....no....their CEO cries "mmorpgs not creative", as he contributes to uncreativity...I can solve that in 3..2...1...: DAMAGABLE TERRAIN ....give me a pay check in the mail, I just cured years of gaming with one single change.
Da-Bomb to Assassin's Creed Origins, combat feels like Dark Souls, map layout and graphx feels like Witcher 3, crafting is goodish, quests are relayed through conversation, and overall egypt awes the crowd. A-Bomb to flu and cold season, it has been a pretty bad couple of weeks for my nose.
QOTW: Fortnite will grow especially with the PVE side coming out, POE will be stable unless something groundbreaking and more new player friendly comes out, Warframe will grow since more zones like the plains will be added and the Umbra story quest will come out, Wildstar for me is tricky, I feel that if done right it could get HUGE atention but only if someone could pick it up and some decent development came up it's way, but unless something like that happens it will keep dwindling down, it might even shutter this year, Tera is same old, Dauntless will probably be great by the end of the year but not at open beta start, Anthem will disapoint, MTGArena will be good but it's a game that if done right only in a year or so will be great to compete with the other TCGs and Bethesda's Artif.... nah forget that. :P
