Asked by Triiiple (1356points) April 16th, 2009

Ive been playing MMO’s since Asherons Call released back in ‘99. Now i have been through all the big ones Asherons Call, Dark Age of Camelot, City Of Heroes/Villains, Age of Conan, World of Warcraft, Warhammer Online, Lord of The Rings Online, Guild Wars.

Currently my subscription to Warhammer Online just ran out but im not to motivated to resub with the state of the game and Mythic making Order side OP.

I do not currently play any MMORPGs, because I don’t like the idea of losing all that work when I decide I don’t want to pay anymore. I played Diablo and Diablo 2 online, which was free, and which could also be played solo. I like that model… mostly because it’s free.

WoW has really tempted me, though.

WoW. Well, it was something different, for awhile. now they seem to be dumbing it down for newer players but it still has exciting parts.

You don’t lose your efforts when you stop paying in World of Warcraft.

I play WoW, have been playing off and on for four years. It’s the only MMO I play, I cannot fathom putting time into another game. I used to be a hardcore raider, from the time of molten core to sunwell temple [we killed kil’jaeden]. I retired from raiding as soon as I hit 80 on my main – I just didn’t want to play anymore. One of my friends who has played as long as I have commented that he thought I was addicted, and that was why I kept playing. And I told him he was wrong, and that as soon as I hit 80 – I would quit.

And I did.

I was also into multiboxing. that’s pretty fun, and a nice challenge once the other challenges wear off.

@siilver : I agree. I’m glad I did not participate in the easy mode raiding they call hard mode.

WoW is pretty horrible now, they are even stealing original things Warhammer Online came out with.

Now theres motorcycle and magic carpet mounts? Friends have told me they resubbed just because how easy it is to get to 60 now.

I had an account from Closed beta with some nice toons loved my 70 BELF Warlock, ended up trading it for a bong though.

I’m currently playing Megaten Online. It’s free, it’s based in the Shin Megami Tensei universe and it’s as good as WoW, CoH, or LotR. Come on, they’re all really the same game.

I’m not investing any more time in another game, no way, no how.

The only MMO I played for a significant amount of time was EQ. I’ve tried others – (EQ2, Asheron’s Call, DAoC, ShadowBane, WoW, a few others) and I didn’t find any of them to be solid enough to pay for. I’ve always respected differences in opinions, but nothing quite like EQ.

I think EQ had solid dynamics to it (class system, leveling system, item crafting, etc.) Whereas other MMO’s struggled in certain areas. It kept me wanting to play and the world was so immersive.
