A lesson in software.
If one company does something silly, like label a window “currency” and then fail to show what most people think of as currency in that window, it might be an error. So this World of Warcraft panel, it might have been a mistake.
But if two companies do it, then it is an industry standard. EverQuest II proves that this is the way the industry is going. Plus now EQII players can gripe about how WoW stole something else from their game!
Yes, we have a new industry standard here.
In fact, there are probably a couple of such standards when you compare the two windows.
Meanwhile, Lord of the Rings Online has obviously screwed up.
When will Turbine learn?
