    Is it just me, or are Different MMO's all starting to release things on the same week more frequently?

    Im pretty sure when Swtor came out Dragon Soul got released in WoW. I know When GW2 headstart began Blizz dropped pre-MoP patch, not sure if Swtor released a patch around the same time but i think they did. And now this week we have Lost Shores from GW2, Storm Legion Expansion from Rift, and F2P launch from Swtor? Do they seriously do this on purpose? I would think your better off releaseing stuff when no one else is because then ppl are bored with the other games lack of content and come to yours.

    Guess WoW missed this weeks MMO content party.

    I think their reasoning isn't to "lure/attract" more people, I think it's more about keeping the players who are on game X actually on that game instead of trying another game.

    Also we're halfway november so expect more finishing touches for the holidays. The drop of BO2 probably is a stress factof for some companies aswell due to the size of that playerbase (and it's loyalty)

    Well, we knew about the Rift expansion months ahead of time. SWTOR was vaguely launching f2p sometime in the fall, Lost Shores was announced relatively recently.

    Lost Shores potentially was announced to spoil the other 2 releases this coming week. But that's at best a wile speculation.

    Coincidence is likely the real culprit. Movies, games, books, etc tend to do this a lot.

    So I just cleared out cursed shore and I have to say, Malchor's Leap is 100x harder than that zone.

    I guess that's a good incentive to do the new dungeon. Anyway, looks like a good patch so far.

    Hope they don't remove too much after the event thingy.

    I too think that in order to keep the design philosophy working, there should be recipes and materials in the lost shore to upgrade crafted armor to ascended.

    The Design Philosophy implies that Ascended Armor shouldn't exist in the first place.

    On another topic, here again it shows the strengths of the sidekick system. They can introduce new high level content but make it accessible for its introduction to everybody. I was sceptical about this feature as I heard about it the first time, but it has turned out to be really neat.

    problem is ppl prefer "real" lvl 80s due to traits etc not scaling

    One thing that this new dungeon will do is to show the real need for a proper LFG tool.

    It's hard enough to get a dungeon group now, I'm betting it will be nearly impossible to get a group for the older dungeons once this one is released.

    Well on Yaks Bend it is hard as heck. Maybe it's just the time that I play or whatever but I've only been able to get in 3 dungeon runs since the game released.

    We're talking open World content here, so no need to try to appease people who only take 80s

    AC exp runs are going on all the time (at least in IoJ) because of the quick runs and the money you make

    On desolation it's quite ez to get groups for TA, AC, CoE, HotW and CoF. CM and arah are a bit harder but still doable.
