You have to create a server that can run a decently complex game for thousands of people at the same time...

Just tell your friend he's a total dumbass.


I have numerous times He is the kind of person who once has an idea in his mind will stick t it until the great idea fails miserably
#9
Server maintainance
Prevent Hackers

Ect...

Just general stuff like that is hard enough once you've actually got the game up and running.
#10
He thinks because he has found a software package that creates the game " we " can do it

Making MMORPG's is simple, especially with these new fangled computers and 3 15 yearolds, back in the old days we had to make do with some twigs and half a mouldy herring

Character designs
Storyline creation
Quest creation
The making of large breasts on all female PC and NPCs
Environments
Combat system
Economy

If he can do all those well and build them into a program... he's still a long way off.
I know it wasn't a MMORPG, but the Limbo of the Lost developers would beg to differ

Get a job

Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

If he says it's easy, get him to sit down at a computer and tell him to make an MMORPG. Stand behind him, saying "Come on, we haven't got all day!" every now and then.

Then sell whatever he produces using the art of scam.

This.

And:
Balancing
Stable server systems with backup (preferably with some form of RAID system. RAID 0+1 or 5 seems to be the ones most fitting IMO)
As bug and exploit free as possible
Active support crew
Dynamic server and client patching to reduce downtime

To say it in a different way:
If your friend thinks that creating an MMO is easy then he has no idea of what he is talking about, and based on what else you have said about him I must say it seems like he's a sociopathic wikipedia educated moron, with no regard for reliable sources and should really reconsider his statements if he is going to work in a modern society. Stating something like that likely means that he has no knowledge of what makes up an MMO.
I rarely play MMO's my self, and I know that there are a lot of MMO's that seems like duplicates, but even so it goes a lot of work in to creating and maintaining them.

you also have to design hundreds of enemies, environments, make them all polished, write dialogs for NPCs. there are lots of things to consider.

To use this you have to be proficient in C++, know how to create and edit textures and meshes for 3D models, know how to work a server, etc.

Also, as you mentioned you and your friend is 15 year old, so unless you are super geeks with a lot of funds and time on your hands I doubt the you can create an MMO. Regardless of that kit.

Yeah, it's easy, you just need about 50 professional men/women and a lot of money.

Communication between the clients and the serverand its database. Hard stuff.
