Next Big MMO? - Page 5

post #41 of 59
StarCitizen market =/= hotkey MMO market.

Of course there's some crossover but as a rule of thumb the people who are going to play somewhat grindy fantasy themed wow clones with their friends using old laptops they used 8 years ago for wow arent the ones who spend hundreds of dollars on hotas setups, have high end rigs etc.

wow clone is a term that's heavily over used, a lot of people seem to realize that the Korean market follows a different style that's similar but these were not inspired by Wow.

Unless you're posting at psyclum.
And no 99% of MMO players are defintely NOT underage.

Only 25% of MMO players are teeangers, the average of of an MMO player is currently about 26 years old.

And lets not forget, that Blizzard some how, says that somewhere over 60%( cant remember exact figure) of the player base are females.

Most people in WoW get new PC's - laptops nearly on a yearly basis. , even the broke phucks. ( tax season) And us HC end gamers use top end PC's for 2 yrs, then upgrade.

Definitely not true, It was >60% are male, and I think the MMORPG market growth over the years puts female MMORPG players at about 34% of the total player base and rising.
Within the next year 54% of all RPG players should be female within projection and a 45/55% split female/Male should be in the MMORPG market.
MMORPGs and RPGs are the largest growth in female players of any genre in online PC games.

Archeage is something a little bit different such as owning property and land, and the way the crafting and labour works is quite interesting. With great combinations for specs to choose from, I've been playing for three months and still enjoying. I played alot of WOW, Aion, Rift and FF before, just so you know what I'm comparing it too.

FYI, there are a ton of skill-based niche MMORPGs out there that heavily focus on PvP/Sandbox elemements, I would strongly recommend checking out games like Darkfall Unholy Wars and Mortal Online if you're bored of the usual themepark WoW clone.

One major problem with Archeage is that it's pay2win. Microtransactions should always be kept to fluff IMO.

By skill-based do you mean the combat style of Tera? That is what I really want in more MMOs is that combat style, where moving when an enemy fires a ranged attack actually matters, where I have to aim every shot if I play a ranged character, not have it lock on and every shot goes to target.

Two problems with that.. I see alot of ranged players just standing still. I like the aspect of Tera where you can't stop moving or you get hit. The other is that I am currently unemployed. A pay to play MMO is not an option for me right now.
