Oh Dude - fully agree. Life Is Feudal released with subs and cosmetics and had MMO servers running for 3 years as a 'beta', before finally shutting things down. The entire online gaming industry needs an agreed upon W3C standard.Well, to be fair a public paid for release with subscriptions is a public paid for release with subscriptions, no matter if there is Early Access written down somewhere. Might as well just do the same they did with MO1, just "release" with features missing and future adjustments still pending.
With MMORPGs with persistent worlds this is even worse anyway, because they are in constant development anyway.
