Looking for free and populated MMORPG with friendly people

aliceeeeeealiceeeeee DortmundPosts: 21Member

Looking for free and populated MMORPG with friendly people<- I would like to play a game where are people around and it would be best if the game is active from the start... Not like I have to reach high level to find people to play with :)

Thank you in advance

    it doesn't exist. every major mmo is going to be top heavy at this point with little lowbie activity. Your best bet would be to look at some of the upcoming f2p/b2p mmos coming out soon and jump in from the beginning. If you dont progress with the initial surge at a games release it gets exponentially harder to progress in any other way but solo

    LOTRO. Brandywine server is the largest server and always has lowbies. LOTRO has one of the friendliest MMO communities around.

    No specific suggestions.  One idea is to watch to see who is advertising extensively.  These ads bring in new players in waves, and it's likely that you'll find plenty of others at low level.

     

    I agree with a comment above about themeparks getting top-heavy.  Mid-levels are the worst because new players drop out leaving the middle zones as ghostlands, with the bulk of the population at cap.

    Well since vanguard Just changed its f2p model I would imagine it have a good rise in the amount of new players starting out.

    I'm playing LOTR, Vanguard, and SWTOR. I've met friendly people in each game. Plenty of people leveling in the starter zones for each game and I play at GMT +9 on American servers, which is off time.

     

    For SWTOR, there are some nasties in the the low level zones of the pve and pvp servers, but since I've moved to the rp server, I've been having a great time with very few encounters with boneheads.

    How long do you want to go before you want to spend money? Or you need it to be free forever? Because if that's the case I find it hard to recomend any MMORPG to you...

    But if you are prepared to pay money at some point (and rightly so), EQ2 still has the best community of any game I have personally played and there always seems to be lowbies around (having just levelled up myself through the game again).

    I don't mind to spend money on a game if I really like it. I will never spend thousands of dollars tough. I really liked Perfect World before the game was ruined for everybody except end game...

    SWTOR has a very healhy population on the low level planets.

    I will also go with Lotro, but I recommend the Landroval (RP) server. If you like to avoid the normal childish players/chat, it is a great server. I have never seen another mmo that is so laid back and respectful. It is the total opposite of the obnoxious players that you will find in SWTOR, WoW, and Tera. On Landroval you have people constantly offering help in chat, and they give free gear away to the lower level players. And, the population there is very healthy.

    I am not an RPer, but I love watching them put on RP events. And, there is a kinship (guild) that hosts concerts. You can play instruments in Lotro and you will find complete bands that play music during these events. There is a program that you can install as an addon that allows you to play your own music (midi file) in game. There is nothing like standing in the prancing pony playing Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven on your guitar image

     I agree with this, it's definitely your best bet to find tons of people low levels.

     

    It's about to go F2P and the day it does low levels are going to be jam-packed with people.

    Just make sure to turn off global :P

    Like all games, f2p ones have good and bad people. The trick is to get away from the general population and join a group of people who are actually interested in playing the game not trolling global chat.

    ... also avoids gold seller ads.

    sure depends on what you like to do in game.
    best community I found at

    LotRO: but game is not very fast, sort of hard and after like lvl 20 you need to pay 10$ to unlock.

    Atlantica: very good for PvP, PvE can be though, combat is very interesting, at least unusual. after sometime you'll find out you need to pay 15$ to unlock warrior pack or it will became too hard, except if you do PvP only.

    Forsaken World: as newby just join guild, and they will boost you. You can grind over ingame money, WoW-like with great graphic but limited content. Just avoid PvP and be not jelly of guys who got better stuff (or it can cost you up to 1k $, at least what some people pretend to pay for it).

    Secret World and Gw2 are buy to play, beside GW2 is not very interesting and seem to push you to buy progress.

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    Been playing Aion since Christmas, lots of people in every area, full game world is accessible for no extra costs. Pretty good deal for what I spent, which is nothing.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

     What part of free did you not understand??....The OP is looking for a free game and I would suggest Fallen Earth or Ryzom.....Both have good communities and people to play with even at low levels.

    Might want to mention that Aion is open pvp unless you hide on the fast-track server. Which means its servers are full of gankers = not friendly like the OP asked for.

    Sure, if you don't mind exchanging childish players for elitist ones.

    How did you get elitist out of that? I haven't met anyone in Lotro that I would consider elitist. Besides, if I am forced to choose between "chuck norris jokes / Your Mom jokes" and an elitist, I am going with elitist every time. At least the elitist is busy playing the game instead of standing around in capital cities spamming chat.
