Re: Other MMORPGs than WOW

I played that dreadful thing called Maplestory a few years ago. It would've been a fair game - not memorable like console RPGs, but the MMO genre (and every other for that matter) inherently is unable to achieve that standard anyway - if it weren't for the behavior of most of the people playing it, particularly at the upper levels. To anybody that was thinking about actually trying it, I'd advise skipping it, or else playing on one of those "private servers." You'll have to be careful about those though - some of their index pages contain trojans or keyloggers.

I'm not sure how this is humanly possible, but I actually had more fun mathematically analyzing that game, or creating custom ideas on how to make it a good game, than actually playing it. I gave up on that a few years ago though.

I've been playing Guild Wars for 3 years. Anyone going to play Guild Wars 2?

I play at hogwartslive.com- I'm not sure if that's strictly speaking a mmorpg, but it's pretty close

There's a new game on Facebook that is an MMORPG. It is browser-based. It is called GodsWar Online. Very fun.

I haven't been on Guild Wars for years but I read an article about Guild Wars 2 and it seems really great- they seem to be addressing many of the problems I had with the first one. I also think it is wonderful that they can do all that without a subscription- I didn't like playing a subscription MMORPG because I felt like I had to be playing it to be getting my money's worth, and after I stopped I felt like I had wasted a lot of money whereas with Guild Wars there are no hard feelings- I got my money's worth from playing it and Nightfall and it was fun while it lasted I hope to try out Guild Wars 2 (if my computer can handle it!)

Re: Other MMORPGs than WOW

I’ve been playing LotRo for several years now and I love it. But unfortunately I’ve been having some problems with it. I’ve had to reboot the computer and reinstall LotRo and it’s just not working.... Grrrrr...

Guild Wars ftw!
I still play it occasionally and I am extremely excited for Guild Wars 2!
The big downer about Guild Wars is that no one plays co-op missions anymore.
All Cooperative missions seem to be filled with people just afking there...lol

Re: Other MMORPGs than WOW

I'm a massive fan of MMORPGs but mostly play the browser based game versions, because I'm a broke student! Apart from World of Tanks; Shaiya, Miramagia, and Kultan are great
