Current MMO?

Post  Toranilor on Sun May 24, 2009 11:33 am

Hey there everyone.

Just thought i'd ask what, if any MMO you guys all play.

I myself have been playing LOTRO (Lord of the Rings Online) for two years, no MMOs before that.

the only one i have dabbled in is WoW. got up to lvl 30 if i remember correctly. i suppose i just didnt lie the WoW world setting as much as i like star wars. i used to collect the star wars part work magazine years ago. almost 10 years ago probably. and now with the development of settings and races and lore and history its all just so much more interesting. im really looking forward to it all. when is E3? i dont keep up with these things. i suppose we will learn more about the game then

LotRO, in my opinion, is VERY good. Some of the endgame is a little lacking, but most of the problems with it are being fixed in the next update. PVP isn't terribly good, but PVE is supposedly without peer.

LotRO was better than WoW by a massive distance.

LotRO well... I tried the trial, but I felt it was a too stereotype MMO. The interface looked too similar to WoW IMO and the combat system was nothing new to me. Not saying you shouldn't try it though!

I liked Eve Online (trial only) better. It was just so immersive! Really got the futuristic feeling in traveling in space through systems etc. The bad thing is that it takes sooo long getting leveled up or what they called it (in fact I'm not sure if I leveled up once). It is also quite complex but you get good tutorials in the beginning and a brilliant working help-chat.

I don't play any MMO currently (TOR really is my savior), I'm playing the FPS Battlefield 2 which I've played since it came out in 2005, with some bigger/smaller periods away. Now that's an addictive game I tell you.

Tried most of the big titles over the years including
SWG; WOW; EVE; FF11; EQ2; DDO; LOTRO; TR; AOC; WAR and SGW

favorites were
SWG (pre NGE)
DDO

currently playing
WAR
SGW(beta)

Give WAR a shot if your looking for some fun filler till TOR comes out, its probably one of the best built MMOs i have played to date, the structured instanced team based PvP makes it all the more fun. Normally i would rather punch myself in the balls than PvP largely because it ends up in hate /tells or some immature dribble like " i coulda pwned joo nubsauce. " in WAR you cannot speak to the opposite faction even in general chat

nothing like a 50 vs. 50 PvP battle to get the heart pumping >:}~

Yes, WAR has some brilliant ideas on the PVP front. However, I found the PVE too repetitive, most of the time I was just sitting around waiting for a Dwarf Tank to pop up for a PQ, or waiting for a PVP instance.

Since people are mentioning more than what they are currently playing I guess I can contribute. Currently I am not playing any MMO and the only one I've ever played is SWG. I loved the game pre NGE and Pre CU. I have seen a little of WoW, but never played. I couldn't get past the characters. I also didn't like the fact you had to raid to get the best gear. Or atleast that is what I was told.

I've played SWG pre-NGE, WoW, City of Heroes/Villains, and a little bit of LOTRO. And I don't know if it counts, but I used to spend alot of time playing online text roleplaying games called MUSHs. Can't remember what the acronym stands for anymore.. like Multi User something or other. Required alot of imagination, but it was worth it when you could get some solid storylines going on. I also did beta testing for Auto Assault, which I thought was super badass. Reminded me of Twisted Metal a bit so I loved it, and it saddened me when it didn't last very long. Damn you NCSoft.

Other than SWG, CoH/CoV was my favorite... I'm a comic book fan so I really liked the idea of creating your own hero or villain and following a pretty decent storyline. Makes me want to give DC Universe a shot, but other than Batman and the Flash, I was always more of a Marvel, Darkhorse and Image type of guy.

Ahhh text roleplaying. I could not ever get into those games. The roleplaying I liked was always on the game board like D&D, I just started playing one with my friends that was a cool star wars version of it.

MUDs are different. A MUD you have a system to fight, level up, loot and stuff. MUSH is straight up nothing but text roleplaying. No stats or anything.. you've got a character, a history and a description.

Thought I would renew this thread. I'd like to meet some of you in the virtual world if possible.

Is anyone playing AOC or WAR currently? I'm not into WoW ... looking for something else to hold me over. I haven't played an MMO since I hit lvl 50 in EQ2 nearly 3 years ago :( .

Well I was playing WOW, but I decided to save for an x-box 360. It was either that or texting.

have a crack at the 10 day trials, most of the Big name MMO's have them. Downside is 3+ gig a game, but worth a look

WAR
is Awesome / well made / fast paced and very PVP orientated, there is some really fun PVE content to

AoC
Most of the population left this game in disgust after it was launched to early to meet a deadline but the game was little more than 50% finished... wasn't even to beta standards really, so i think its a ghost town

my 2 republic credits :D
