Sadly, this game uses D&D 4th Edition rules which pretty much destroys any interest for me.

Can you explain the problem with 4th edition rules for those of us who have no idea why that should destroy any interest in a game? What makes it worse than previous versions?

Lack of depth in rules. They shallowed out the system so much in 4th Ed that it's not really worth playing. They pretty much structure everything around combat, instead of having an even balance between combat and non-combat components. EX: a lot of the spells you had in 3.5 could be used in social situations. Now, in 4E, every single spell, ability, or anything related is specifically combat-only. Well, except for the skills, but those are watered down from a list of 30 to, what, ten? Bah...

Umm isn't it a single player game with 5 player co-op not a MMO?

Yeah, they're making a point of saying it's not an MMO, but an OMG (online multiplayer game). Not entirely sure where the distinction is tho.

the player cap is 5 where as it's a few thousand or a few hundred for a MMO (depends on how servers are done).
