Which MMO did not "fail"?

CastillleCastillle KhobarPosts: 2,703Member Uncommon
So...GW2 failed.  TSW failed.  SWTOR failed.  Just about everything failed.  So aside from WoW, what mmo DIDNT fail? o.O Entropia Universe?  o.O

    Actually If you are talking about "failed" launches, WoW failed too.

    I haven't even had time to pick up GW2 and it's already dead?

    New record!

    When did GW2 fail and why? Or TSW for that matter?

    Idk...Majority of the people I talk to in F2P games say WoW had the smoothest launch ever with no issues...Then again Im expecting them to treat WoW launch as 3 months after release...

    Well..The guild wars 2 forums seems to think that 1m prepurchases mean fail...and TSW forums are filled with that too o.o with its, and I quote, "Lowly 300k subs".

    WoW had a pretty horrible launch, massive queues, server outages, etc.  It says something when Everquest 2's advertising campaign was basically "come play our game, it actually works".

    WoW's launch was horrible. Even a year later, the server woes were attrocious at best.

    Rift. Very sucessfull mmorpg for Trion.

    Don't know how TERA's doing for enMasse at this point.

    Most likely, low to middle budget mmos that don't require high amounts of box and/or subs/playerbase.

    Like some have already said, WoW had a terrible launch. I remember tho from previous threads and my own experiences that Final Fantasy XI and Guild Wars 1 may have been the only "smooth launches" in MMO history.

    And you shouldn't believe everything you read from forums.

    From the perspective of stupid opinions people have then you could say every MMO has "failed" at launch.

    ...and would be the point of that? Nothing.

  • Superman0XSuperman0X San Jose, CAPosts: 1,608Member Uncommon
    The first game to not fail was Everquest. The next was WoW. We havent had a bigger sucess in the MMORPG Genre since these.

    FFXI

    As a matter of fact i get miffed when i see developers shutting down servers every week for this so called maintenance.I played FFXI for 8 years and only ONCE did the server go down,Earthquake is a pretty acceptable reason i think.I never encountered a single bug,geesh i really never had a single problem ever,so go figure i was a very happy gamer.

    Now to be fair FFXI did a have a full year to release in JPN.but so what?All i care about is the release they did here,especially when you figure that was a console game and the release here  was a PC version.The Console was delayed for Hard drive orders/needs.

    I was not there for the release of EQ,i joined later as i was an avid Unreal fan at the time that started in 1998.So perhaps Eq had a decent launch but judging by what i saw from SOE games is not likely.Bugged animations,mobs underground,getting stuck,map glitches,you name it .

    I would say Rift was decent but in line with MOST devs cutting corners on cost made for a poor server structure.Outside of being cheap on servers,i did not witness any problems in RIFT.

    Only SWTOR.

    The rest are good games for diffrent audience. Some for kids some for more mature players.

    The only thing production houses look at to determine success/failure is return on investment (ROI), so I would suggest using that as a measuring stick 

    The above is my personal opinion. Anyone displaying a view contrary to my opinion is obviously WRONG and should STHU. (neener neener)

    EvE hasnt failed...LOTRO...WoW...EQ2 is fairly busy....GW2 will also be considered as asuuccesful as you can be post WoW. Second Life is decent, LOTS of ppl on there. I think all others have "failed".

    Oh, DCUO failed at 1st but seems to be making a comeback, they are pumping out lots of content latley.

    Ultima Online, DAOC, Everquest, WoW and EVE should all have made their profits, no? Nothing lasts forever anyway (no physics comments please :P)

    Every game has "failed" in the opinion of at least one player or another.

    MMOs that didn't fail are far and few between lately.

    Ultima Online

    Everquest

    Dark Age of Camelot

    Eve

    SWG

    Lineage II

    Everquest 2

    WoW *

     

    Although WoW made billions of dollars it was a terrible game. Imagine before eating at 5 star resturants and then McDonolds comes a long becomes the most successful resturant of all time. Then outragously all the 5 star resturants try to compete with McDonalds and started serving burgers and fries. Suddenly you couldn't get a good Filet Minon to save your life. That has been the pretty much been the history of MMOs.

    Whoever told you that WoW had a smooth launch LIED!  My Grandfather used to say, "Believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see."  Those are some good words to live by...

    Question, is SWTOR a failure or success?

    According to the forums, its the biggest failure in the industry.

    Rift is supposedly in life support.

    Umm...Yeah o.o  Im just going by what the forums say! :O
