Looking for a new MMO

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. I'm looking for a new MMO to play. I want something fantasy, with a lot of customization and control over what you can do.

Ideally, I should be able to play one of many classes, and control my own abilities. Games I've played/am playing that I enjoy a lot are:

Eve Online
World of Warcraft
World of Tanks
Atlantica Online
Lost Saga

Games I've played that I wasn't fond of:

Black Prophecy Beta
Luna Online
Perpetuum Online
Vindictus
Allods Online
Any smattering of Korean imports

I'm trying to be descriptive here, it's just difficult. I want something that is unique, that makes you work for what you get, and that lets you create your own sort of character. The games I listed above that I like a lot give you plenty of customization options, and are very PVP-heavy. I haven't tried Darkfall. I hear it's good PVP, but I also hear it's dying.

Anyway, if anyone has any great suggestions I am open to hearing them!

I just preordered Rift this morning, looks pretty good. From what I've been reading its a mix of Everquest and WoW. Was a huge EQ fan back in the day, and rockin out WoW now. I will drop everything for Diablo 3 when it releases though. While its not an MMO, still a baller looking game! Plus since I beat Diablo I and II countless times and played for many years, thats #1 on my wishlist for this year.

There is still no word on the Diablo 3 release. I'm afraid it will be in 2012. It had better be totally amazing for the amount of time they are taking to release it.

It's more of a mix of WaR, Aion and WoW. Didn't have a bit of EQ in it I thought.

Also, I wouldn't get this game, as they aren't advertising it very well, and the "dynamic content" they're speaking of isn't dynamic at all. While the game could be a fun MMO, I think people will see it's not as polished as a game like WoW is and they will simply un-sub and go back to WoW. Since this game is being backed by no one else but the developers and it's investors, I don't think the game will last very long before they either shut down or switch to a F2P method.

Right now, I'd try LOTRO online. It's F2P, but I really feel like it's an extended demo, but I played it before it was F2P. You can try out all ther free content, and you might have enough points by then to unlock something else, but if you like it, I'd recommend just subbing and paying monthly. It's worth it.

I'm waiting for SW:ToR. Out of any MMO that's currently out, I can't really recommend one over WoW. :\
