    EVE Online (link to wikipedia EVE page, section on Economy)

    Eve is a good choice, also may want to consider Pirates of the Burning Sea. Population is on the rise, lots of economy opportuiities. 

    Best of luck.

    Every MMORPG is AWESOME, until it's released!

    wakfu is 100% player economy. Even the initial "dollar" has to be made from the earth :D

    Perp is really small, for a game about economy you end up doing tons of things yourself because no one else plays. Or you join a corp and get everything handed to you because what am I going to do with it? Sell it? 


    Game has tremendous potetial squandered by the number of players. 


    If you want a game where everything comes from players, people shift their play style during inflation, and people making billions off of candlecarts eve is for you. Sadly nothing comes close.

    Not even close I would avoid both of those games Face of Mankind has a really crappy economy to the point of

    non-existance. The economy is really crap in this game.


    Fallen Earth it was good until they came out with a recent 4.x patch which basically killed their economy and their crafting ability where they dropped down all of their crafting queues to 2 even if you previously donated and put money into the game.  Fallen Earn went after the quick buck and a lot of players revolted when this happend and quit the game.  The game and the economy / crafting has gone way down hill recently I would avoid this game as well.


    I have played both of these games avoid both of them they are not good.

    EVE, Wakfu, Wurm, Mabinogi and Ultima. Best ones that contain a player based economy IMO.

    Edit: I just replied to a thread that's 5 months old.

    while its true that Wakfu has 100% player economy, but this game really not recommended, i mean, it would take me pages just to point out the bad thing about the game, but you should give it a try and see how it goes

    but my vote still goes to EvE

    So What Now?
