With a title like this, there’s a temptation to talk about it World of Warcraft I slowly and inexorably doubled the least fun content year after year until everyone I cared about packed up and left, but I’m sure the commenters will do that for us anyway. Instead I want to talk about it trove.
Trion’s – now Gamigo’s – trove It used to be one of my favorite little hidden gem sandboxes. I became obsessed with reaching different classes, building my homes, trying new buildings in my family’s club world, exploring other people’s incredible maps, and taking my kids on a quest to find bosses and kill them. But over time the studios have tackled new systems, grinds and endgame shenanigans, with the turning point I think being the Delves, and just too much of the game has changed.
i still love trove – The trove that was once. When I think about it trove, my heart fills with warm thoughts of the good times there. The modern trove, but is a bit removed from the specific things I liked about it from the start. It’s not bad or doomed or anything, but it’s a case where I haven’t really changed and I still want to get the same things out of the game, but it’s just not up to me and those things anymore received.
Has there ever been an MMO that has morphed into a game over time that you no longer love?
