Whats the best MMORPG?

Postby daggaz » Sat Dec 06, 2008 1:33 pm

What do you like to play, and why? I would have made a poll, but I dont even know all the main brands out there beyond like WOW, UO, EQ2, and LOTR, so if somebody feels like putting a poll up as well, might be fun.

Anyhow, I was just curious about this, after reading about the new DarkFall MMO on Gianna's page www.thenoobcomic.com It seemed like a cool world they were building, tho I have serious misgivings about playing on servers crowded with PKers named IHaxUrShitz and InUrF4zD00dz. Has anybody else read the previews? What do you all think?

Me and the wife just reactivated our WoW accounts for the Christmas break, and I don't think much compares to it these days that we've played. My list includes eq2, LotRO, and AoC. I did like LotRO, but I think it suffered greatly from lack of actions being able to be used while moving. It made PvP very boring 1v1 (and subsequently group pvp) and limited creativity in PvE. They had some nice classes and quest ideas though, and I prefer the graphics to the other MMOs.

The best MMO is World of Warcraft.

People will always bitch about it because people bitch about everything, but there are very few other options out there that people legitimately think are done better.

LOTRO isn't bad.
Warhammer isn't bad.
City of Heroes isn't bad, if that's your thing.

If WoW is still the best, I'm still staying away from the genre. I didn't even find it as fun as this MUD...

I dunno though, it may be that years of mudding have rendered me bored of that kind of gameplay....

WoW took a bad turn when they introduced faction rep rewards... it turned too asian I believe; however, I play it because my wife does. I also played CoV, but it couldn't hold my interest past a month or so.

EQ and EQ2, DAoC, CoH, CoV, AoC, WoW...none of them were as fun in my mind as Earth and Beyond, which sadly, has moved on from this world. RIP.

Tried it, ended up just meeting girls irl rather than the Internet. More fun that way.
It will be fixed in Toril 2.0.

I tried match.com a couple years ago - ended up meeting a girl that I'd met a couple years before that had a crush on me but I had lost contact with. Amusing. We get together and have sex like once or twice a year as friends, but the girl im dating now ran into me on myspace.

Eve-Online

Its played in such a way that I've never seen before, and WOW doesn't even come close.

Yeah, top healers for as long as I can remember.. oh yeah.. and dps.. and good tanks. After this priest, and probably finally a dk, I probably will do the druid. But I doubt for healing.

Healing on resto druids is so... mindless. Spam rejuv. Wooopie do! I like the shaman class because Ulduar taught us to really be diverse in our healing. For example, on General V, I do around 1500 hps without going OOM by only healing the tank. Other healers are like 500-600 hps.


Well that was until 3.2. We'll see when we get to General this week, or next with the raid lock extension. (We're doing all HM's as we make our way thru this week). The 3.2 change gimped my lesser healing wave. I'm really missing me +30% haste to the spell and getting +20% crit instead. It's garbage. The way they keep doing tier bonuses, its like they really are trying to turn riptide into something it's not.

Ghostcrawler is a moron.

Lol, any druid who spams rejuv should be gkicked. It's all about nourish, and maximizing that is hardly mindless.

Anyone check out Aion yet? I'm kind of anticipating this right now. I've always been a fan of subclass type RPGs, and level 10 is probably the perfect time to start the split. The graphics look amazing, and the gameplay looks pretty nice.

Edit: Also, getting to pick a few other class specific skills? A cleric that can AoE grind? Awesome? A tank that can heal at times, yes sir!

I am one with the restore druid. If I touched rejuv during any major battle (except when desperate), I'd kick my own ass. Regrowth... sure... Rejuv is for running away, to, or through stuff. Besides, I can't show off my dire bear tanking skills if I rejuv the whole time.

Be afraid.
