Despite not being a living organism, MMORPGs still follow Darwin theory of evolution. Those who are unwilling to adapt amidst an ever changing, competitive environment will not survive. With each new patch, with every update, MS undergoes a similar change. The end result being not one of good nor bad but different than previously.
"Different denotes neither 'bad' nor 'good', but it certainly means not the same!" ~Cheshire Cat, Alice: Madness Returns
Just recently, GMS celebrated their 10 year anniversary in service. How many MMOs do you know of were unplugged before even reaching 5 years? Rather than dwelling upon previous previous versions, let's take a moment and reflect upon what made them so appealing to begin with and how would we even benefit from having the game mechanic resurfacing less than a decade later.
As a community, screaming a myriad of random requests here on the forums after every patch will only lead to conflicting information and underdeveloped content meant specifically for our region. Instead, let us work closely together (and honestly) with our community manager Michael; making sure MS continues evolving/thriving amidst the harshest competition that is the MMORPG market.
Let's all shoot for MS celebrating their 20th anniversary!
