Most disappointing MMO? [Poll]



  • olepiolepi Posts: 1,247Member Uncommon

    The two Star games: STO and SWToR both disappointed me. I love both of those IP's, and have since they first appeared.

    RIP City of Heroes. One of my favorite MMO's.

    Warhammer for me.  That game had sooo much potential.

  • MMOarQQMMOarQQ BoogalululuPosts: 636Member

    Warhammer, SWTOR & FFXIV.

  • HaukenHauken Mo I RanaPosts: 649Member Uncommon

    I chose SWTOR, simply becouse i expected so much more of that game. It was a huge disapointment.

    Really star wars was the biggest disappointment?  This kinda poll gets me down.


    My biggest disappointment was warhammer online.  Having been a table-top fan while also dabbling in daoc, I got super excited about this game.  In the end what we got was an unfinished game with broken promises and a dev team who seemed to not care.  Oh the hype machine really killed off something great that day.

    Yes I played SWTOR.

    No surprise...

    The games that people felt were the biggest disappointments were the ones with the most hype and marketing.

  • JyiigaJyiiga Seneca, SCPosts: 1,109Member Uncommon

    With SWTOR I at least played a character from start to finish story wise. So I had "some" value in it. Not much different than a single play title.

    With TERA I payed a few bucks and got into the game.. Saw that it wasn't as good as options that are coming a few months later and lost interest. Flush 30 bucks.

    I wasn't dissapointed with SWTOR because I expected it to be bad.

  • niceguy3978niceguy3978 Gainesville, FLPosts: 1,977Member Uncommon

    SWG was my biggest dissapointment, by far.  I don't think I've ever been that disappointed in a game before, and I know I haven't been since.

    Warhammer.  It promised so much, and then nuked the company that made it.

    Warhammer of course. Is the only MMO that I never paid a single month, just did the 30 days that comes with the box.


    Was so hyped. They promised so many things.


    The next MMO will be awesome. Until people reach the end game.

  • KyleranKyleran Paradise City, FLPosts: 24,005Member Epic

    Warhammer online is what I voted for, but if STO was on the list it would be tied right there with it.

    Both games should have been so much more than what they ended up being, pretty much standard fare theme park MMO's.

    WHO should have been the 2nd coming of DAOC while STO's IP along could have lead to a virtual universe game of epic proportion.

    Instead we get basic reskins for each....bleh.

    I propose starting a new poll with TOR removed, and seeing what the results are then. I think a lot could be learned from that--TOR is kind of skewing the results. It was so overhyped, and everyone knows it's dead now. I think it would be far more informative and interesting to see what people think about the other games, without their clicking on the most obvious choice.


  • VhalnVhaln Chicago, ILPosts: 3,159Member

    Think it says something that WAR is the only MMO there, other than TOR, to beat out "other"


    Not sure how so many people could have been disappointed in TOR, when there were so many warning signs before it launched.  WAR though, that was my personal biggest disappointment in MMORPG history.  


    I wonder if it'll ever come to light, what went so terribly wrong at Mythic, to go from DAOC to that.. Just EA?  I bet there's more to it.. but then again, maybe EA is all it takes.  Look at the number one position, afterall.  Doubt that's exactly coincidence.

    When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

    I voted for Dark and Light.  EEEWWWWwwwwwwww

    Why is there no FFXIV option?  How could the obvious winner of such a poll be absent?

  • ZaltarkZaltark Lockhart, TXPosts: 436Member Uncommon

    lol Are the results skewed a bit?

  • TorvalTorval Posts: 11,937Member Legendary

    I voted - Other: LotRO

    That is still the most disappointing game to me.  It had such potential and started off well, then it pissed that all away and flopped to F2P to grab more cash from their players.

    A lot of games had a weak start like STO or Aoc and have improved over time.  Even though some on that list may have disapopinted at launch, they are better than they were even if they won't live up to their expected potential.  LotRO took one of the most iconic IPs and just pissed it away.  Whatever the mojo the original Turbine developers had with Asheron's Call is long gone.

    The other game on the list I might have voted for had I played it, and is clearly the leader, is TOR.  Everything I saw about that game did not jive with how I remember Star Wars.  If I had expectations and tried that game, then I would have been sorely disappointed.

    Overall, I don't usually have high expectations in a game.  I just play what the game offers until I tire of it and move on.

    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.

    Anarchy Online - worst launch in mmo history, very bug ridden


    altho Ive heard Dark and Light was worse for being disappointing


  • william0532william0532 portland, ORPosts: 251Member

    I voted for swtor, not because I hate it, or want it too fail, It just didn't feel all that starwars too me. I'm watching the site to see if the game can talk me back into playing, but nothing's really caught my eye between 1.2 and 1.3. I'm sure some people would love to tell me that an mmo can't launch with all sorts of bells and whistles, but swtor being bioware, and starwars I hoped for two different categories of things.


    1.decisions that matter(nothing matters, your story does not change, the world does not change, your companions don't even change

    2. Compelling story(I'm not really fragging on this one, cause I get that the game is made for 13 and up, but it just seems like an even more kid friendly pg-13, hell, tcw cartoon seems more adult oriented lol

    3. Basically all that stuff bioware became known for with Kotor, jade empire, dragon age, (and not the sequels they sold off the rights too), and the first mass effect.

    As far as starwars hopes, well I'm not going to explain them all, just list them(don't want to do a tl:dr)

    1. No war in the stars(tunnel shooter bioware? go %%%% yourself)

    2. No war anywhere in the game, pve or pvp

    3. More mmo giant monsters, no battles between factions

    4. No open world pvp(no reason to fight, how the hell did the peace treaty crumble? Hatred between the empire and republic over the last huttball tournament?)

    5. The universe is full of different colored humans, no aliens of any form of interesting types what so ever.

    6. You know what, just to keep it simple, theres really nothing that any other starwars game ever had(that was unique) in this game, it seems like the guidance lucas gave them was, it couldn't have been done in any other starwars game.

    7. And a bunch more, but I'm flaming so I apologize and will quit.


    Hopefully somewhere in the future, maybe in a couple years, TOR will have alot of starwars features in it cause I would love to play anything starwars.

    I was hugely disappointed by Star Wars: The Old Republic. I had high hopes for the game. Against all logic, I was hoping Bioware would still have "it", even after they joined the evil empire, EA. But the Sith have already taken over. Dragon Age still managed to slip through, even if just barely and in an already highly crippled way. Capitalisms ugly face, profit greed, killed the "successor" if you can even call DA2 that. And SW:TOR, the main reason why the leadership of Bioware apparently wanted to join with EA, was another victim.

    I was not at all disappointed by Age of Conan. It was exactly what the Wikipedia page described about it half a year before the release of the game. Thats why I never was interested in AoC in the first place. Then I talked with people who played AoC and to my suprised, they complained it was the game it was. They simply havent read a single halfway neutral article about it before playing. Like its Wikipedia page. Sadly other Wikipedia pages about games are in much worst state, though.

    I wasnt disappointed by Darkfall for the exact same reasons and again people complained for the game being what it was. Duh. What did you expect ? A game where its a good idea to run around naked, where you farm CON for months to be competitive in PvP, and where you learn the best skilltree and stick with that, so everyone plays a tankmage. If you had read the information about the game with your brain still intact, thats exactly the kind of game one would have expected. Frankly I have no clue why people think such a game would be a good idea in the first place, but meh.

    I was surprised how many people liked Aion. Personally I dont like a Lineage 2 with just 2 races, 8 classes, and engaged in RvR, no matter how much improved its graphics are. Still many people liked it in surprising amounts. Well, whatever, I never was interested.

    I had expected Warhammer Online to be a way better and more successful game. But again, I dont like RvR, and I certainly dont like what I see when I check out the WAR classes, so I myself was never contemplating playing that MMO myself.

    By the way, WoW is pretty muche same there. RvR. Ugly comic style graphics. Instancing all over the place. And so on and so forth. Thanks, but noooo thanks.

    I never was interested in TERA, The Secret World, or DC Universe, so meh. Seriously, playing Superheroes in a MMO ?!? Nah.
