    Percentage of vote: 9.52%

  2. No, I don't like the sound of that at all, but I'd probably buy it anyway. (133 votes [90.48%])

The poll options were simply meant as a sincere reassurance to Obsidian that we will support them in whatever they do, but I understand if some people are uncomfortable with that notion. [...] Now, I suppose I can tolerate some ad hominem attacks along the way in people voicing their obviously strong opinions on this matter, but I do ask that you keep that to a minimum. Thank you.

Well if you ad option like:

Where's the "I would never, even under pain of death, touch the proposed MMO, even with a 10ft pole!" option?

You may be not accused of being troll (if you really ain't one).

And my personal opinnion is: this

You know perfectly well that P:E is about making a game that is no longer accepted by the publishers because it doesn't make the most money. Turning it into a money grabbing MMO is counter to this idea. :closed:

But is the community truly loyal to such ideals? My poll results indicate that in fact over 10% over the community are MMO-loving money-throwers, and I think this is something people should be concerned about. What if they bring along their MMO-loving friends, and all of a sudden we're outnumbered?
I mean, I understand that some people are upset about the poll options, but how else would I have drawn the MMO-lovers out of the woodwork beside giving them a little encouragement? If I hadn't done that, they'd have simply caved into peer pressure, and gone undetected!

Third option, No and No. I'm tired of interesting ideas being used only in MMOs

No.

It isn't like Obsidian will make PE into an MMO anyways. Between the costs and hostile reaction from the backers of the original PE, it isn't a feasible option, not to mention quite a few MMOs crash and burn(SWTOR anyone?).

Another biased poll with answers deliberately worded to skew the responses. Meh.

I don't know, guys... It's not that these harsh accusations aren't enough to make me rethink my core essence as a person, but there are obviously five people who would like to see a PE MMO, and I don't think that you should hate on me for giving this minority a voice. The poll options were simply meant as a sincere reassurance to Obsidian that we will support them in whatever they do, but I understand if some people are uncomfortable with that notion. Even more, the unfortunate reality of the gaming industry is such that it is the follow-up to a highly critically acclaimed title that makes the most money- the same goes for the music industry. Like it or not, I'm confronting real and difficult issues here, and while you may not appreciate the occasionally tongue-and-cheek nature of my presentation that shouldn't take away from the legitimacy of the issues. Now, I suppose I can tolerate some ad hominem attacks along the way in people voicing their obviously strong opinions on this matter, but I do ask that you keep that to a minimum. Thank you.

At any rate, I am positive that the members of this community would rather discuss matters such as this than hold discourse over concrete issues like game mechanics (as my mostly ignored thread on character traits and statistics indicates). I'm simply trying to do my best to give you all interesting but ultimately inconsequential things to talk about so that the risk of having to actually confront relevant things like lore or game mechanics is minimized.



You were able to play the prophet and the martyr cards at the same time. Well done.

Hey, all I'm saying is that perhaps you should be looking at each other instead of gawking at me, as there's clearly a significant portion of this community that favors the MMO path, and I merely brought this to everyone's attention. All I can do now is recommend that we take caution; evidently no less than 10% among you are subversive MMO-lovers, and it scares me.

P:E with Multiplayer support? Yes that would be awesome but.. (look at Ieo's signature on page 1). The Adventurer's Hall would be an awesome Multiplayer Hub as well, where I could employ a character that someone else has made. Could the Adventurer's Hall be a sort of "Online Hub" (Not Multiplayer, per say)) and easily Upload/Download Characters?

P:E with MMO? No. I've had enough of grindfesting and enough of entering an area on my epic quest and seeing 400'ish players running around, derping, breaking the immersion that my party is the schpecial one.

Mcmanusaur may be trolling, but he hasn't been actively trying to insult people, so I'm ok with this. I've certainly been entertained by this thread so far.
Maybe PE shouldn't be a cRPG, but an MMO after all. :devil:

The problem is that the proper meaning of Trolling has been lost. It used to be fairly clever, like this and the fat issues thread whereby folks didn't actually realise they'd been trolled (q.v. Bugaboo on the old Eric Noah 3E boards who was a twisted troll genius). Now it just means brain-dead or abusive posting.

* sigh *

Mcmanasaur has the aura of potential greatness about him as an old-skool troll but at the moment he's a diamond in the rough. One to watch.

I'm sure he'll do much better in the Project Eternity 2 forum. For now he needs to eat his troll food, so he can grow big and strong, and more troll-like.

Well actually, in my experience here it means posting things people don't agree with.

So what you're saying is that you do eagerly anticipate a money-grabbing sequel, possibly in the form of an MMO?

Right....

I'll gladly throw money at a sequel, assuming that its MMO form stands for Minutely Multiplayer and Offline Roleplaying Game (sure, they can throw in some Baldur's Gate level multiplayer if they really, really, really want).

If you find the trolling in this thread clever, then is says more about you than the meaning of the word. This troll is so obvious and ridiculous that the OP invites to be ridiculed.. hence he comes across as the type who thinks any type of attention is better than no attention. He is a perfect example of someone trying too hard, and some people expose themselves, further, by thinking this OP has made successful or clever trolling.

Okay, now it just sounds like I've really upset you. For the record, I was simply curious to see if any people here could be "tricked" into admitting they'd like a Project Eternity MMO if I framed the question favorably. I'm sorry you feel so strongly, but I really think you might be trying harder than me right now.
