Firefall works fine, why does MMOBomb hate Firefall?

A-bomb to bad NPC AI. I just finished getting my artifact weapon on several of my 100s, and it went something like this: On my holy paladin, they might as well have said "Hey, here's a buttload of DPS that are going to stand in everything and bitch. Oh and an insta-kill mechanic. You can heal that, right? By the way, we're going to send you through a portal that drops you into a pit at near-death health... twice."; On my protection paladin I should have known it was going to be bad when one NPC refers to another as 'the best healer ever', he might as well have said 'this guy sucks balls'. I had to lay on hands and bubble, as well as nearly running out of mana healing myself while dude stands in the aoe doing some sort of healing animation, yet no healing comes. I mean... it's bad enough when my party is player-controlled dipshits.

I was gonna name reserve mmos are the bomb but i didn't buy a founder pack so all I ended up getting was
some terrorist site about blowing up mmos with bad generic pr that was established 5 years ago

chinammosbynotrichwesterncompanywithoutballz 5 years ago
They should rename this site to cash shop haters. And stop calling this a free site and take the ads off. That business model bothers me.

chinammosbynotrichwesterncompanywithoutballz 5 years ago
nothing beats a new game release so all the generic know nothing mmo fans can start wars about f2p business models when at the end of the day that type of group just wants the entire game for free. and following know nothing mmo fans aeria releases games when it comes out its out and people play it and stay off vocal mmo sites. Millions of people are playing mmos like this and people would never know. If your not familiar with the cheaper publishers by now not releasing exactly how the game is gonna be a year later. No you will find out when its out and who care the bigger issue is have you even watched a gameplay trailer or interested in the game.
