Not so good news

I almost forgot to post this. I had written an email to John Hoskin (Boomjack) at Tentonhammer regarding his lack of coverage of DDO. And this was his response. I warn you now..its not very encouraging.


Hey Rick,

I applaud the players like yourself who continue to play. DDO certainly has some great gameplay, but when all is said and done it wasn't my cup of tea and the traffic numbers show that it continues to move in the wrong direction.

As to why we cover WoW more than other games.... We don't actually. :) We cover Age of Conan, Everquest 2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings and Warhammer Online as much as we cover WoW. That said, an article about WoW always generates at least 10X more traffic than an article about any other game. We have to put a weight on what we write and right now, the weight sits firmly in the WoW side of the scales.

Thanks for the letter. I appreciate that you took the time to write it. I wish I could revive DDO, but there doesn't appear to be anything that anyone can do.

If you are interested, our old DDO site is still public, although it hasn't been updated in some time. The URL is: http://ddo.tentonhammer.com

All the best,

John



So there you have it...our beloved game and its community is just not popular enough to garner any attention from the gaming media. Kinda sad huh?
