United Mining Exploration Commission: A group of friends playing JumpGate-- "a MMORPG that launched smoothly, breaks from fantasy character setting, emphasizes PvP, and is the first persistent world space simulator that nobody talks about." ~Scorch

I tend to agree with the fool however.

Jumpgate simply does not cater for any Bartel types other than killer.

The explorer role is pointless - there is nothing special to find except artifacts and they lack permanence.

Achievers? Bah. To achieve in Jumpgate you either kill more flux, or make more money. Killing flux gets tiresome, and making money is a matter of farming.

Socializers. Well, Jumpgate does have a chat interface, but I think socializers like glittery interfaces.

Which leaves the game entirely for the killer types - to kill each other, or the "others". And, carebare sensibilities aside, the non killer groups are having a hard enough time validating their stay in Jumpgate without being PKd.

Advertizing the game is useless for as long as it chases people away as fast as they arrive.

oh, and here's something! This thread has been at the top of usenet for over a week now. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Abandon all hope ye who enter

here's an entry within that thread with the usual muffy overboardness. *sigh* I do love usenet. trolls can't use the martyr routine to get me banned...the silly shit still tries though. God, it's nice to not have to operate with a leash on against politically correct trollage.

and it's STILL at the top. (although, predictably horribly off topic)
