A-bomb to Skyforge. They messed up everything.
The character customization in terms of build variety is gone and they removed a bunch of skills that people loved.
The interface is messed up mixing zones, instances, character progression into one very ugly map menu, the game is much more limiting in terms of progression than before.
The combat is very disappointing as well - they straight up lied in the patch announcement that you can dodge attacks now and it is the same combat system as before but it takes ten times as long to complete because they decreased severely the damage of both PCs and mobs. As a result the combat is very slow and you never feel a sense of danger. The new "weapons" are complete gimmicks as well - they are rehashed old character abilities on a temporary pickup that add nothing to the gameplay.

QOTW: I think both Crucible and Breakaway are going to be F2P - they seem very small in scope and I do not think that they can be competitive in their respective genres as B2P games when you consider how many F2P games there are. New World will be either F2P or B2P. I'm leaning more on B2P on that one just because it seems to be quite ambitious. I think I will try all of the games but I'm only sincerely interested in New World.

I don't mind the comment clipping... I know I get wordy.

A-bomb to guild drama. My former guild leader blew up at my best friend over... essentially nothing. Then proceeded to make all kinds of issues between members, and kicked all but himself and 3 others from the guild. The whole thing was aggravating and really silly. A friend of mine corralled the ousted members and we formed a new baby guild. Unfortunately it means our raid team needs work as what we have is 6 people... 3 of which are healers. We ended up chatting for the rest of the night and laughing about the whole incident. But it did suck a little.

Well, the game tries to get over 9000, but pretty much falls short every time.
