The Daily Grind: Community or content?


A fan of Star Wars: The Old Republic recently sent an email to this reporter asking Massively to give some press time to a community movement on the SWTOR forums. Although we may do a complete report on it another time, the forum post made us wonder just what is the importance of community in an MMO?

There is a monstrous debate about whether community or devs serve as the greater source of in-game content. Dedicated players or professional writers? Massively reporters have been on record supporting both sides of this debate. One in particular seems to waver on this subject. Of course, there is no right answer -- unless having more dollar bills makes you more right.

If player-generated content is crap and developers don't know what players want, which is more important: community or content? Which has more impact on you? Do you like the stories and content your friends make? Or would you say the developers need to give you more of the content that you demand?

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
