    Dont think Mobas count since they arent MMOs.  Neither is PoE

    to me

    BEST: LotRO (at least used to be at roleplay), Atlantica (very helpful and nice random ppl)

    WORST: runescape (specially at f2p zone)


    WoW depends on realm, IMO, can be any of these.

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

    Well I don't know what game has the best or worst nowadays, since most games are pretty much dead.

     

    But my list will mean when the game was at its prime.

    SWTOR - Worst(have to agree empire side was extremely childish)

    DDO - Best

    WoW - Worst(Wins worst by a mile)

    EQ - Worst(pretty much was WoW Jr in its heyday)

    Rift - Best(never had a problem with people here)

    DAoC - Best(best in its heyday but turned elitist once the good people quit)

    GW2 - I've recently picked this back up and its a ghost town, so no idea.

    Played plenty of other but these stick out.

     OP said MMO, not MMORPG.

    That's any games that is massively multiplayer.

    1. Best: Ultima Online -- Atlantic server

    2. Best: Dark Age of Camelot (RolePlay servers Pre-ToA/Old Frontiers)

        Having RP servers enforced was awesome!

    3. Best: Asheron's Call

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. Worse: Star Wars the Old Republic

    2. Worse: ShadowBane

    for me at least

    best = was CoH

    worse = tera

    F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used toimage
    Proper Grammer & spelling are extra, corrections will be LOL at.

    I used to think WoW had the worst community around, but it's pretty good compared to the vile d-bags you find in more recent games.

    IMO:

    Best: LOTRO (Landroval)

    Worst: LoL

  • Eir_SEir_S Argyle, NYPosts: 4,623Member Uncommon

    Best: GW2 by far. 

    Worst: WoW.

    I haven't played TERA very long but I did find some very helpful people there.  Just not the majority.

    How is ten people at once a massive amount of players?  Is Mozilla Firefox an MMO because even though it's just me using this browser, millions of other people use the browser too, some to play games?

    Seriously, mobas are not massively multiplayer.  They're multiplayer, and a lot of people play the game.  Goldeney 007 on N64 would be an MMO under your definition because it had multiplayer and millions played it.  Seriously wtf lol.

    I agree.  If they were though, LoL's community would be up there for "worst".

    I believe EVE Online has the best player community.  Not because everyone is nice in it, but because not everyone is nice in it.  The community in EVE is the best because they are free to choose how to play, and they play together.  There isn't stupid segregation such as a server select screen or paid expansions.  Those things are arsenic to an MMO community.  The stories that come out of player interaction in the EVE community make headlines around the world on very well known news corporations.  There is no other game that has as strong a community.

     

    Everyone happy and super friends forever nice smiley face doesn't mean the community is very good.  It just means they're cheerful.

     

    Edit:  A faceless mass of players doing the same thing at the same time but without any real interaction is a sign of a terrible community.  This is what Guild Wars 2 has.  It is barely a community at all, but rather a collection of individuals.  I'd rate it at one of the worst.

    I would quibble over whether that even qualifies as a community in the first place.  Which raises a question:  is "no community at all" worse than "community consisting entirely of miserable asshats"?

    Everyone knows HoN has the largest gathering of douschebags in the universe, nothing can beat the retardation and just plain stupidity you have to deal with when playing HoN.

    WoW was bad.

    FFXI was good.

     

    Everything else - good and bad folks.  Some people made my day.  Some went out of their way to ruin my day.   I don't buy that children in games cause all havoc.  I met worse "adults" and great friendly pro community kids.  Don't judge the youth so quickly.

     

    I think you can design a game so the players don't go at each other's throats.  You just have to make it very entertaining.

    City of Heroes was best for me.  RIP.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    Well I like Aion online, Tera, elsword, runescape, rune of magic
    best Aion online
    Worst rune of magic
  • AmjocoAmjoco Layton, UTPosts: 4,837Member Uncommon
    Tera has the worst. WoW probably the best due to it's longevity.

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

  • MadDemon64MadDemon64 Maplewood, NJPosts: 1,102Member Uncommon
    I think we can all agree that City of Heroes had the best community while it was up.

    Since when is Tuesday a direction?

    BEST: Guild Wars 2

    Always helping people,some people just join your party to help in whatever u are doing.No ninjas,no gearscore... help that a lot...

     

    WORST: WoW

    Too elitist. Most players are up only for super-sonic runs in any dungeon,and if you can´t keep the pace you get insulted "noooooooob"  & kicked out easily.

    Best:  Istaria (Horizons)  I've never experienced a community as friendly and helpful.  The community there was stellar.  Just wish I enjoyed the game more.

    Worst: WoW (at least back in the early days when I first experienced it)  After having played EQ, EQ2, SWG, and DAOC, the chat in WoW was a bit of a shocker.
