    Excellent article. This one statement caught my attention

    "Ridiculous amounts of so-called help makes for brainless, zombie-like players"

    I completely agree with this and I hope that Richard intends to keep the 'hand holding' in SOTA
    to a minimum. I usually prefer to think things through on my own. I find it far more rewarding
    than having the game give me constant pointers. (I've always disliked those silly exclamation marks above NPCs)

    Great read, and I wholeheartedly agree. Granted, I do enjoy the themepark games - but I certainly miss the immersion level of UO.

    Oooooh.... the crown seizes your accounts and properties for crimes against it, and you need to find a way to 'clear your name' (quest), and can't access your bank or home until you do... hmmmm....

    IMO, this was your most entertaining article yet. Maybe it's because I can relate so well to everything. I could never say "grats" to someone saying "ding" again and I would be a happy person.

    I remember being in a guild that was for leveling in WoW. It had like 300 people going from 1-30 saying ding every two seconds. There should be one ding and it should be from my microwave.

    Good piece. Concise and intelligent, yet entertainingly written, a challenge I understand as I do a fair bit of technical writing, product reviews mainly, and its sometimes hard to keep the readability factor up.

    no game has ever kept my attention or been more fun to level and gain skill then UO. I had more fun getting to 120 smithing then anything in WOW.
