Massive Multiplayer Online (game)

i actually had a discussion once, with a "person" who said that games had to be as large as wow, and have multiple separate servers, to be considered an mmo...
so under 1 mil players and only 1 server per continent, was not an mmo in his eyes...

ahh good times... :D

nice fry... :D

Been boycotting EA since they ruined the C&C series back around the time of Generals. Thier tendency to deadline the studios into having to release basically incomplete games or face contract law court rather then actually finish a game is actually driving them out of business.

And i'm REALLY hoping you people who talk about playing MMO's offline are being facetious.....

Addicts also don't like drug dealers ...
The people are angry that the cant stand the temptation but blame EA.
If people stop buying EA would die or is forced to transform.

Go to youtube, search for World of Warcraft private server.

I don't think I will say anything more. Don't want us to get ban etc. But just an idea that you don't need blizzard.

But as for SimCity, Yes it is possible to play offline. Some one that know computer coding etc., already make a video/demo showing it on youtube.

dirtyklingon
03-31-2013, 08:39 AM
really the truth is it's just hip and trendy to hate EA and make sure everyone knows.

it's not that EA is bad, but it's ****ing crass and disconnected for gamers to vote them worst company in america over the alternatives who are exploiting the **** out of people for profits while being subsidized by taxpayers.

but yeah keep that karma view train going. le reddit!

Pretty sure if you have the source code. You host it your self at home. Unless your computer couldn't handle both hosting and playing the game, then you just use 2 computer.

Once they take down the servers you will lose all ability to play the game you purchased! Twenty years from now in space; en route to alpha centuri if you feel like playing some defiance - u are gonna have a bad time. Don't let Trion treat us all like scumbag pirates! Down with online only DRM!

You do know i wasn't being serious, right?

Also always online DRM has been bypassed before, look at simcity there's currently an unofficial way to play it offline. Breaking, find loopholes, etc are deemed "cracks" when it comes to beating anti-piracy mechanisms.

But again i'm not being serious i brought this game because of my appeal to the MMO genre.

In fact this may shock you but the entire thread is satirical !

thee is no online DRM - Dont mix up online requirement like in diablo 3 vs a COMPLETELY online game.

Its like askign to have offline play in wow or any other mmorpg.
You wont live to see the spacerace anyways - you wont be able to leave the pc once defiance is released.

I fancy kicking a few ppl in the nuts, SimCity cannot be played totally offline, the current download doesn't save progress, it does nothing more than enable devmode. If you exit the client completely your city is gone, defeats the point of playing simcity, unless you want to dedicate a pc to simcity leaving it on 24/7.

Sleep mode causes Simcity to crash when using the mod to enable offline play.

Yea, won't be able to leave because we will be sitting in queue. People may say I'm crazy now, but once launch day comes all hell is going to break loose. Can't wait for trion to come forth with the canned "we weren't expecting such LARGE turnout" statement while innocent paying customers like us are dealing with an unstable server and queues of over 9000.
