free-to-play is not the problem. Korean copy paste grinders with pay to win is the problem.

Reason mmorpg's not doing so well is cause their copy of a copy of a copy meaning one unique feature won't change the fact that the rest is the same i mean wow and league did not become popular by doing something every one was they made their own they took the risk and it payed off. If other companies stoped playing safe then mmo in general would prosper. As for Korean giants not being able too compete with Chinese is simple you can't conquer another when you have not conquered your own. China was concentrating on mobile and they lead it for ncsoft or other companies too enter it first they got too be on top of mmo market they work in.

more mmo's since we have had such small release numbers lately and the quality is still horrible
but what game companies need to know is that mmo's should start at end game no grinds .
as the slaes numbers dropping has shown players (like myself) hate a grind.
we just want to start at the end game and that is why mobas and shooters and mobile games are taking over

every time i hear about new mmo - its ASIAN, anime i mean, for me ugly looking with g.a.y. characters to create, with only one faction..... or just stupid portal and teleport based claustrophobic world like skyforge and neverwinter, or b2w games like GW2, SWtoR, Rift.......

i could play mmorpg day and night if it was: NOT ANIME, full content f2p (only cosmetics and boosters in money shop), real open world (go almost anywhere without teleport and portal), 2 rival factions, few races (not boring human like in skyforge)

We are super pumped for Redfall...but a longtime Overwatch fan isn't happy with Overwatch 2 at all.
