Diablo 3 Team PVP shelved

Yep, it looks like another Blizzard hyped feature has gone the way of the Dance Studio.

" Simply fighting each other with no other objectives or choices to make gets old relatively quickly.  We've brought a lot of people in to try out Team Deathmatch and, while some found it entertaining, most of our testers didn't feel like it was something they'd want to do beyond a few hours. Without more varied objectives, or very lucrative rewards, few saw our current iteration as something they'd want spend a lot of time in. "
 Isn't that what Diablo 2 PVP was, just simply fighting each other with no other objectives.

I don't really know whats changed at blizzard they do way too much thinking.

Be enlightened

The Secret World is now B2P

Another MMO that offered life time subscription drops its subs. In this case only a few months after release.

The Secret World is now Buy to play meaning it no longer requires a sub. You can still subscribe and get leveling bonuses, store discounts and 'free' points to spend on the store each month.

The game will now instead release DLC which is new story missions and arcs.

They should have done this at the beginning and alarm bells always go off if a MMO offers life time subs & a cash store.

Hopefully the buy to play model is here to stay. Subscriptions are worthless these days and I rather have company's work for my money instead of sit around for 8 sucking money out of me then release a expansion at full price.

Runescape: Player owned Ports

If your graphics engine is dated, you only have 3 options when it comes to promoting your MMO:

1) Make a expensive CGI video that shows no gameplay.
2) Hire famous people to talk about the game.
3) Dress your devs up as pirates and sing a song
