Has anyone else read "The Engineer Trilogy"?
K. J. Parker's definition of Abomination is precisely what I'm talking about.

http://www.incgamers.com/News/21928/cancelled-halo-mmo-details

"You have to remember that Ensemble came from a standpoint of being really good at competing against Blizzard Entertainment," he noted, drawing comparisons between the success of the Warcraft series and the success of the Age of Empires series. "We had a pretty good history of knowing the types of stuff that Blizzard put into their games to make them really successful, and the kinds of things we'd need to put into an MMO to compete against Blizzard."

... It's just embarrassing.

I love how he goes on about having stuff in the MMO that other ones are now using for their games, as if they owe them for them.

Hey moron. FUCKING MORON, a lot of people use HUD's and regenerating health in their games, do you think Bungie or other companies say that they came up with it first? No.

Get off your high horse, Your MMO was cancelled Halo Wars failed and your studio was closed down. That was your fault.

my god..that image of the spartan....i think ensemble releasing a halo mmo would have killed the franchise completely.

instead of Halo going down as "best series of the early 2000s" it would go down as "what fools we were"

All the images I saw looked nothing like Halo (Except for the weapons, which was kinda cool) and the idea never would have worked under Ensemble.

Hence why it was canned.

The last one with the broken warthogs didn't look half bad for an MMO... but the rest of what I've seen of the game makes me want to puke. It looks like X-Men, Warhammer, and Halo Wars got into a big fight and ended up spreading their entrails all across WoW.

(nothing against X-Men or Warhammer, but they don't fit with the Halo MMO)

To those at ES who still think this was a great idea:
You are the best justification I can find for the 'Aktion T4.'

Face it. You never competed with Blizzard. It's like saying that Cricket competes with AT&T. It's like saying Bubba J's Moonshinery competes with Budweiser. You had one good game, and that was released LAST DECADE. And fantastic multiplayer though it had, StarCraft came out around the same time and had a fantastic multiplayer AND an awesome campaign.

Yeah, that's right, a campaign with a story that wasn't written by the art director's two-year old! Imagine that!

The very idea that you thought you could go up and compete against an iron juggernaut with a death grip on the market, by gang-raping an established franchise, is antilogic. The idea that you were going to do it by taking WoW, swapping out the graphics for those done by the art director's 8-year old with Down Syndrome, is a frank insult to the intelligence of all living creatures, from E. Coli bacteria on up. I wish I could find a word to describe my feelings for you, but omniloath will have to do. Your parents did not do Humanity a favor by climbing down out of the trees and walking upright.

Your attempt to create a WoW ripoff and slap a brand-name title on it to sell it, smacks of the worst sort of 'workmanship'. I have more respect for panhandlers and morticians who sell body parts than I have for 'designers/programmers/workers' like you.

To put this in words you have a chance of understanding...
