Phenomic means: Sometimes something that seems simple or good turns into something terrible. This term is usually used to refer to MMO gaming. This word derives its origin from the browser-based MMORTS MMORTS game Lord of Ultima. Phenomic is an EA studio that developed the game. Although the game was popular for its simple and enjoyable gameplay, Phenomic changed it drastically and did not fully test functionality. This led to a lot of players leaving and ruining their months-long gaming experiences. (in Community Dictionary, added by Esperanza Gilmore)
