Let's get an MMORPG thread going - Page 2

I play(ed) Runescape. Bit time ago I played WoW, have all expansions, 85 rogue, but now I got bored with it.

Tried FlyFF, Conquer online and other free MMOs. They are quite boring. But Dungeon Runners was awesome game, too bad it is dead now

Last year being bored with the crop of games at the time, I commenced to purposely indulge in a world of warcraft addiction.

I leveled a Hunter to level 55, then switched to a Orc Death Knight, and leveled to 80.

It's the deepest game I've ever played by far and the Lich King storyline was really cool. I did 10/12 in icc, was an above average dk dps. Fought Lich King the night before Cataclysm expansion but the group I was in couldn't get it together to finish him.

The combat is so deep, as is character customization at the end level game.

Cataclysm hit and I levelled to 85, fun again, and I was in a decent guild by then.

However, I became obsessive about the game, getting way to emotionally invested, pissed off if I wasn't invited to guild raids. I had joined a guild of people who had been friends forever so I was kind of the odd man out. And I just realized I didn't really want to go through applying to a new guild, etc..

So I quit, and thats been that. If you can control your playtime, all the power to you. I couldn't. It was a good time but I'm glad its over.

I play WoW, on and off lately (wife aggro BIG TIME), on Forgotten Coast US PVP Server. Currently raiding endgame heroic content on my Tauren Druid. Kinda bored with it IMO, so I'm also levelling a priest and shammy.

I was a hard core Everquest player for 10 years. Beat 15 or 16 of the expansions raid events and all. Was a top damage dealer on my server probably in the top 10-15 players of all classes. Server firsts weapons, armor and events were not uncommon. I raided with Darkstar Alliance under the name Sensi Jube Jube.
After that I played WoW for a bit maxed TBC expansion then stopped playing because PvP was the only thing to do.
Currently Playing Rift level 45 Paragon Warrior.

I miss EQ every now and then, it was very difficult which gave everything much more worth in game. The quest to make everything accessible has made MMO's kind of boring and easy, so long as you know what direction to head which is commonly pointed out to you in games now.

Played many MMO's, i think even if i tried to list them i'll miss out the bulk. Tried so many i realised nearly all MMO's are the same except for one or two out of the millions out there. One could say the same about fps games which is why i stick with the 'two out of the millions out there', COD 4 and BFBC2 (maybe BF3 soon). Even if most fps games are the same theres alot of excitement from running and gunning which is a far stretch from grinding.
After playing many MMO's i realised most are ultimately about grinding up levels, killing that Billionth Warewolf so you can achieve level 90. Most of these games have levelling as the main focus. It would be nice if levelling was lower down in priority and the game was steered by an immersive storyline. That way you play enjoying the storyline and skill in background (I hear Guildwars 2 will adopt something like this so looks promising).

Anyway, this is roughly the chronological order i played these games.

Entropia Universe -
Started this around 6 years ago. Been playing on and off. Unique mmo since its got a real cash economy. You can deposit and withdraw from game, with mobs effectivly looting money, so it spices the game up. Down side is its got an expensive economy so could be abit harsh if you're used to$15 a month. Like i said, i play it now and again, its abit different.

Last Chaos -
Got into this about 5 years ago. Played it for 6 months. With the help of double exp potions became highest levelled sorcerer in all the servers. Spent long hours in killing endless spawns of mobs watching exp bar go up by fraction, only for the 2 minutes of joy you get reachin the next level after the 8 hours of grinding. After reaching the cap level, i was disappoited at the dead end wall i hit and went on a spree ingame killing random people at grind sites and dungeons in an attempt to squeeze that last bit of enjoyment. Then quit.

Perfect World -
At first i was impressed by the looks of the game. Then realised after 3 weeks i was just doing the same thing - grinding to unlock this and that. Graphics were good though for its time.

Cabal -
Clearly aimed at 12 year olds IMO. No depth to the game, nothing different from other fantasy MMO's. It was even worse since its not open world.

2 worlds -
At least i think its called that, its been a while. Same thing really. Inevitably quit.

9 Dragons -
Once again - doing the boring bit of grinding for hours just for the few minutes of joy of reaching a new level or skill. Hours of repetitive boredom in exchange for couple of minutes of satisfaction.

Silkroad -
Tried this with friend, and it made no impact on me.. suprizingly.

Wow -
Tried the trial and one month sub, just to give it a chance since i was playing with group of freinds. Realized we ended up grinding just now in group. We would be pressing the exact same keystrokes and just chatted.. a.k.a thoughtless play for the most part.

I played a few other games that dont come to mind. Then just got frustrated that i couldn't find a grippingg MMO. For about 2 years did some light gaming with non-MMO games.

2009, one evening me and a mate rage quitted out of a COD 4 server because of bots. We were bored and my friend suggested EVE. I always looked at videos of the game thinking... how would anyone find this fun??...Installed trial an oh, how i was very wrong
EVE has very indepth storyline, Complex and vast game mechanics (you're not restricted to pve/mine/crafting as apposed to most other MMOs.) There are hundreds of varying professions that will take months before you've exhausted enjoyment out of. Its also one the very few games where you get rewarded for thinking! Skills train passivley while you are offline too so you log on just to have fun instead of logging on with the aim of reaching next level.
I also like how brutal and in your face the game is. You could get your Alliance infiltrated by a spy (which in a sense is a profession since you have to be good to succeed) and be totally pillaged by the spy who may have stollen all your Alliance assets. If you made a petition to GM they will tell you thats how the game is intended... to have ingame politics and espionage. Do a similar thing in other MMO the GM will give your assets back with a cookie.
Its all very immersive and 2 free expansions every year!

Downside to the game is it has steep learning curve. Its great when you're on top though... takes acouple of months to take it in.

I've been playing LOTRO since 08. First MMO I'd ever played. Bounced around a few Kinships(guilds) while making my way up. Finally landed in my current Kin which schedules raids weekly on Friday and Saturday nights.
