Brandon Reinhart has this to say to you, oh 900 pound gorilla:
If Hero Classes are like City of Heroes expansion classes or Jedi, where you unlock the ability to roll a new alt of that class, I will quit WoW. Fuck that.
His list on what they SHOULD do mirrors mine fairly closely. However, like him, I doubt they’ll do it. They seem beholden down the path of mudflation. But what do we know? We’re just game designers on games not named WoW.

Things Darkfall Expects Of YOU, Points 115-120:
115: Adding “_DARKFALL” to your Halo 3 tag
116: Bitchin’ forum sigs
117: Gettin’ your cinna on at the Cinnabon
118: Defending the honor of DARKFALL on random blogs
119: NO. REALLY! WE MEAN IT! Team Bastard Sword ASSEMBLE!
120: Reversing the Edict of Nantes
Just in case anyone was curious why an older blog entry was suddenly getting lots of comments. It’s like the good old days!
Press release. Headed up by Mythic co-founder Matt Firor, whom we’ve discussed hereabouts in the past.
No mention about what projects they’d be working on. Gee. I wonder if there’s any IP they have access to. (Sadly Interplay is still holding onto Fallout’s MMO license with cold, undead fingers.)
(Note to Matt: DARK BROTHERHOOD ONLINE. You know you want to.)
