There's tons of ways it could be handled. I don't see how it couldn't be done in the same way as any other MMORPG.

There's plenty of options for variety, including use of Native characters/weaponry. And hell, it doesn't even have to be a strict Wild West game, could include fantasy/magic elements into the setting (magic sharpshooters, etc).
Lol, who the fuck wants to play as a Landbridge Migrant when you could have a six gun. Also, if you add other dumb shit it's no longer 'wild west' and it's just fantasy.

I mean but that's what a scam artist would say though.

It's nice to see a bit of Russian collusion that's actually plausible for a change.

Not sure how so many people are like holy shit a western MMO that would be great. What are you faggots going to roll as a Chinese railroad worker and fight off dysentery? Gonna get the ole six shooter, ride a horse and fight some coyotes? The reason MMO have been stuck in high fantasy is because at least there they can make up dragons and shit to fight.

You dumb fucks are gonna wonder into the saloon and pay your 5 sheckles to assfuck a whore and listen to Swigin and Wu talk about the San Franciscan Cocksucker. Then it's back to Chick alley to get ready to work on the railroad more. Oh boy we should all sign up, terrible idea for a game. Maybe you faggots can raid the Indian chief and take turns brokeback mountaining his balls.

Right, because all these copycat MMOs have been so amazing. Neckbeards like you are why they keep churning out shit pile after shit pile.

Game will still be shit, but not because of the setting.

You could say the same about any fantasy MMO out there, nobody's willing to play the red shirt soldier grunt patrolling some city. It's not hard greating a "once of a kind unique hero" setup in any universe. It's not like Hollywood western mythology has a drought of heroes.

The problem is MMOs need to have a setting that is expansive enough to serve for content proliferation with unique settings. The 'Wild West' is fairly narrow, unless you want to go Will Smith and add the extra 'Wild', which fine, but then it's just fantasy again.

That in itself is the problem.

The "evergreen via expansions" approach doesn't make for good persistent games and I defy anyone to name a long-running MMO that's undergone years of content accretion and experimentation without becoming an abomination begging to be put out of its misery.

You'd build it like a fundamentally different game instead of trying to picture a wild west version of wow

Train Robbery spawns every 2 hours
Saloon attack by bandits is instanced
Escort the Wagon is a daily
Landbridge Migrants Raid is on a weekly lockout

Cowboys and indians is probably the gayest concept for a MMO. Like literally this game would just attract homosexuals.

Have been meaning to try this out. Some cool people are working on this project. Interested to see how far they can push the WarZ engine.
