- Here's a question for you, my loyal minions: should I stop commenting on MMOs if I am no longer playing any of them? Is my opinion no longer valid if I'm not participating in the games I'm talking about?
- I'm sure you've notice a lack of MMO content on the blog recently. Most of my ideas come from the games I'm playing so I don't have nearly as much to say. But that doesn't mean there is nothing I want to talk about. I just wonder if, somewhere down the line, I'll end up arguing a point that is no longer valid in the MMO space.
- Honestly, that is not a huge worry for me. MMO design does evolve, but it doesn't evolve quickly. You only have to look at STO's starships filling trinity roles to see we have a long way to go. The real problem with MMO commentary is that there is only a finite range of topics to cover. Once you are over that, you're left with current events. Just look at the many, many, many posts about STO you find in the blogging community.
- My MMO blogging is not going away. There is a long running tradition that I'm not leaving behind. I remember reading the initial rants from Lum the Mad and wishing that I could participate in those discussion. But until something interesting happens, ranting about the same old topics doesn't have the same luster.
