World of Warcraft and other MMORPGS.
MMOs, at their core, are games that provide for the communal experience of the Great Myth which is a fundamental human pursuit throughout nearly every culture and time in history. Intellectual properties such as, Star Wars, World of Warcraft, Elder Scrolls, etc. are modern adaptations and additions to the great human myth telling tradition. Expansive universes in which the heroic journey of many trials can be more directly experienced.
We encourage members to immerse themselves in the rich lore and ever expanding stories that are the foundation of every game we play. Invest time and pride into your characters! Strive to fully enjoy the online gaming experience within our community!
We remain excited for the future, with many improvements in the gaming genre on the technological front with the introduction of new consoles as well as next generation gaming engines and intellectual properties! Unreal 5 engine is of particular interest to us in 2023!
