 MMO’s, Part 1

Unless you are an idiot MMO stands for Massively Multiplayer Online (GAMES) with an s for the ‘s in MMO’s. Before I start this RANT I would just like to point out that I do in fact I like Games and enjoy playing them. Yes that’s right I’M BACK and I’m going to ruin the world of MMO’s. First off let me say that all MMO’s are boring and I don’t know why any one would want to play them. Apart from Animal Crossing and City of Heroes because the genuinely look quite good and FUN unlike all the others. I did explain in my first Rant that EVE Online looked quite fun but after some research that game is terrible as well.

MMO’s allow people (NERDS) to live in a world that is not real and ruin their lives by not doing anything else with their lives and losing all their friends and only realise this when the power cuts out because they have not gone out to work for some time because they were participating in a quest with some of the other people (NERDS) who are online. Although they also realise they have ruined their lives when they have died from not eating for the last 2 weeks. One of the major parts of an MMO is being allowed to live a life that is not their own and pretend their some kind of beast but in actual fact they will never come this close to being a beast because mythological beasts didn’t waste their lives playing MMO’s.

The most popular of MMO’s is World of Warcraft (or WoW as the NERDS say), which apparently has 11 Million subscribers worldwide with roughly 3 girlfriends between them. So 1 in every 3666666 World of Warcraft players has a girl friend. Obviously these people must be rejects to society so much that they have to live in a different world THE LOSERS.

One major problem with MMO’s is the high cost price. Now chances are that anyone of the people (NERDS) that play MMO’s will start going off like a car alarm when they hear that. For those STUPID PILOCKS lets face facts. The game when it is brand new costs £30 (OK MAY BE £40 (or $6000000000 in America) but if popular goes down in price but that takes time) with a 2-month trial period (2 weeks for you bunch of PILOCKS that may complain). After the trial period you have to pay £9 (I rounded it off) a month to keep on playing. Now if you put in the cost of the game in the first place; lets say £30 plus trial period (2-months) and keep on playing for a whole year by paying £9 (rounded off) it costs roughly £120 (roughly) for the first year. Lets look at a second year (IF YOU ARE BORING ENOUGH TO DO SO) with £9 a month that comes to a cost of £108 for the second year. And if you carry on for a third year (in which most of your family and friends have probably left you) it will cost you £108. Now lets add all these costs up shall we; so that’s £120 + £108 + £108 = £336. Just think of all the amazing things you could have bought for that amount of money but you obviously are a social reject and you always will be. £336 lost to a stupid fantasy world in just three years. Lets have a think, what could you possibly buy for £336.00.

• 33600 Penny sweets

• 1120 Apples

• Driving lessons

• 3 Nights at a fancy London Hotel

• A PlayStation 3 plus £36 left over

• A Big Fancy Meal

• Many Big Fancy Meals

• 8 Games at £40

• 11 Games at £30

• An Xbox 360 with at least 2 years Xbox Live cover

• A Nintendo Wii

• 3 Nintendo DS’s

• At least 2 Nintendo DSi’s

• 11 DVD’s at £30

• 15 DVD’s (roughly) at £20

• 8 DVD’s at £40 (if any exist at that cost)

• 672 Chocolate Bars at 50p a piece

• 336 Party Sweet Mix at £1.00 a piece

• 67 trips to the cinema at £5.00 a piece (VUE Cinemas)

• 11 upper tier seats for WWE Smackdown

• 5 ring side seats for WWE Smackdown

• 8 train rides on the EuroStar

• 4 return tickets on the EuroStar

• A standard PC or Laptop at £300.00 (rare but available)

• MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MORE

At least 25 things and this does not include the cost of expansion packs. One other problem is the idea of experience points. For everything you kill in MMO’s you gain extra experience points (DEPENDS WHAT LEVEL YOU ARE ON YOU PILLOCK). This goes for every kill you make including the genocide of rabbits (YOU EVIL DECADENT NERD). So the more Experience Points you earn the better of a fighter your character is. So in fair fact you could be the best gamer in the world but you could easily get beaten by a 10 year old. Why does there need to be experience points. Instead of experience why not have a ranking and all your attacks depend on how good of a player you are instead of embarking on a career of being a PANTS LOSER. It would make more sense if you were just a better gamer and get better by practice. You could beat all the better players just by getting armour and shields to protect yourself from the damage caused by their attacks and watch them fail as they are carrying armour-cutting weapons.
