hellgate, a mediocre PREMISE, no actual story, and a crappy MMO. Nothing to bother saving.
Take the grind out of MMOs and there is nothing LEFT. MMOs are all ABOUT grind. Some people like this sort of things, but the rest of us are not very appreciative of a second job that you have to pay for.
I am trying to understand what all of you are talking about... You say you hate the game, yet you wish it was better or fixed somehow... why? there are dozens of diablo 2 clones that come out every yaer, many with much more potential then hellgate.
Did you play the game ?
If so I cannot see how that would be possible given the utter ignorance of your comment.
First and foremost HG:L was not an MMO, it has both online AND offline play (just like Diablo did). it isn't a Diablo clone either (please site examples and give hard proof that it's a clone otherwise gtfo) Hell, it doesn't even play like Diablo.
Nor were you required to pay anything. You could spring for a sub or forego it. But I will say that it was the subscription method that killed HG:L (imo)
Second, there was no real grind in HG:L as there was a plethora of missions to help in level advancement.
Third, uh... the story behind and within HG:L was one of the more original one that I've seen in quite a while, and the Novels by Mel Odom were simply great.
No you didn't play the game, so stfu and dose your flames.
Btw, here's a couple links to MY Engineer character:
