How to Spot a PvP MMO Stinker

I’m going to share some of my divination secrets with you guys. Want to know how to spot a stinker in the MMO PVP genre? Look for these ‘selling points’:

  • Early Access
  • Enforced player caps on battles
  • No persistence with regular resets or win conditions

And if you want a cherry on top then look for a popular theme they’ve tried to attach themselves to like “base building” (or building anything for that matter), Survival Game mechanics, or MOBA.

Some people will take one of these as a sure sign of failure, but that’s not necessarily the case. As much as I despise early access, there have been plenty of awesome ea games. There are some great building games, survival games, and moba games too. However, I have yet to find a single non-stinker that fits the mold.

Can you think of any upcoming games that check these boxes?

So why leave the name out?

    This is applicable to at least 3 upcoming pvp MMOs, and not meant to be about any one in particular. I want you guys to identify them.

I’m guessing “No persistence with regular resets or win conditions” pertains to Crowfall? I’m not sure enough of the details of the game to know if the other two apply.

    Yeah, it’s safe to say Crowfall fits the bill. So do many others.
