If you remove all of the graphics in wow you have boxes and turrets fighting other boxes and turrets on for the most part a flat 2d plane
the question is. when will mmorpgs evolve beyond this. this style of gameplay has not changed since wow came out and there was a limitation of system hardware server hardware and slow internet connections. now we have dsl and are rolling out faster and faster internet as time goes on.
why are so many mmo's still boxes and turrets with fancy graphics painted on. i would play any game that had less stellar shiny pretty graphics if when you removed the graphics the game was more then boxes and turrets fighting other boxes and turrets.
where is the mmo where a dragon or technological monstrosity comes down from the sky and the first thing everyone attacks is the legs and wings rather then just a box or a selectable target.
we have the technology but i guess Fancy graphics>Interesting game play?
is there any good reason every mmo has to be boxes and turrets?
its 2013 wow came out 2004 its been 9 years still boxes and turrets.
are there any mmos that are more then boxes or turrets or has the race for strong fancy graphics stripped all mmos of any deeper potential with 3d immersive twitchy combat not call of duty level but a level where you are looking at the screen not looking for instructions on whats going to happen next no addons no help with the game but with bosses like in zelda where your given tells of what might happen next and you have to prepare accordingly.
if you want to get technical bosses in zelda had more complexity then a wow boss in terms of its hitbox its been 15 years since oots and majoras mask for the 64 and no one has been able to make any kind of a mmo with variable hitboxes on enemies aiming and careful planning of your attacks. i guess gamers cant be trusted to properly aim there attacks react or defend themselves against clever enemies. you need targeting or auto targeting on a enemy.
also oots had z targeting why cant any mmo i have ever played have z targeting just for the camera
well enough ranting if anyone knows of a good mmo that is inventive creative has freedom of movement strong tactics and variable hitboxes well..ill play it :3
if a kind moderator could change my title post to why are mmos still boxes and turrets

is it to much to ask in a fantasy mmo to have combat that is not just boxes and turrets fighting other boxes and turrets?
