    I am currently most active in Runescape. I am in closed beta for Runescape 3 live beta and new interface testing. The full open beta should release towards the end of summer (likely? they have not set a date yet). So I am really looking foward to see the games advancement into a new version.


    The last new one I tried was... WURM. it was okay I guess...mechanically any ways. But, I quickly abandoned it after tutorial for a few reasons:


    Terrible interface - It's all tree branched out and organized in weird ways, with the fonts so tiny its hard to read anything.


    Nonsensical - While the premis is interesting the exicution is poor. I can under stand sand, swamp, and even grass slowing me down, and scaling an incline that is too steep makes sense. But tar? tar seems to be every where...ummm why? and no jump? granted in most MMO's jumping is useless any ways but, in this one... it would actually be very useful.


    Inexcusable graphics - cell shading and low poly is fine in an MMOG, if the style calls for it (like roblox, that thing is actually kinda fun); Or if it's method of deployment requires lower graphical quality. But they seem to have gone with .gif textures and .rwx models. And, they did it terribly at that. Active worlds (1995'-Present). uses things like that and their stuff looks 10 times better and lags less.


    The whole of WURM looks and feels half-hazard. I would only recommend it to the same people I would recommend to go to hell. The same goes for arrevan...Does any one remember the website from hell? it was a visual example of everything a website shouldn't be...Arrevan is the MMORPG from hell. 10 minutes and I died 3 times, once I lag walked off the edge of the world (there is no edge of world barrier), the second time i i took to much damage coming down stairs. the third time I feel through the map...just stepped on a place it was not put together at right and went right through... died and respawned outside of it and my character got stuck ina perma walk out into the void. Again i wouldn't reccomend.


    That should at least give the OP some ones to tottally avoid at all costs.

    For released online games, Planetside 2 and LoL get most of my playtime.  I can play those games in short chunks, so they're nice here and there.

    For stuff still baking, I'm really liking Dragon's Prophet.  Ways to go with it, but it feels nice in my hands.  And I fell in love with the early beta of Firefall.  Haven't played it in forever, though.  I might get back into it during launch.

    Tribes and Phantasy Star Online 2 have been really good to me, also.  PSO2 was awesome (played on JP servers using a fan translation).  I took a break to wait for the NA launch, and guess what?  Yeah, they delayed it.  I might jump back into the JP version.

    For single-player games, I've still got Skyrim waiting for me to finish.  I have this problem with TES games (Bethesda games in general, really).  I just spend enormous amounts of time powering up my char before I even begin to deal with the main storyline, so the game gets boring, and I stop playing.  I'm lvl 70 something, and between potions, buffed crafting, and enchantments, you become nearly invincible.  I always found that odd about TES games.  Combat skills are largely irrelevant.  Crafting is always what breaks them. :P

    Oh, and I try to ignore my Steam account.  Those bastards have too many sales.  I'm sitting on several dozen really amazing and really unplayed titles.  I've got like 20% of my Steam account installed, and only a few games beyond that, and I've used up 320 GB on my HDD.

    What am I waiting for?  Neverwinter is looking like it's worth a try.  Kinda wish the character building was closer to actual D&D, but I loved Champions Online, so I'll give it a shot based on my respect for Cryptic.  It doesn't really count since I've already played these, but I'm pretty eager for the launches of Dragon's Prophet, Firefall, and the NA launch of PSO2.

    Oh, right.  The other stuff.

    Age: Something (my profile age isn't accurate).

    Video Game Experience: Yeah, since I was a little kid.

    MMO Experience: Uh.  My first online games were text-based RPG's.  Those were persistent world games with hundreds of players online in the same world at the same time.  Does that count?  I guess that would make it . . .  Jesus Christ.  How can it possibly be that long? :/

    I have not logged into an MMO since January. I keep saying I might log into GW2 this week but end up going thru the weeks without logging in. 

    What have I been doing instead? Painting Warhammer 40k  and  Warmachine/hordes minitures.  Trying to get some tabletop games in when I can.

    Am I awaiting a game? Yes. Everquest Next. I might dabble with GW2 on and off  untill it comes out. However I have a warmachine tournament I plan to attend at GIGABITES cafe in Atlanta GA on May 18th. I would like to get as much of my army painted for it as possible, and. I'm a slow painter. So I doubt I will computer game at all untill then.

    Age just turned 39.

    Playing: Darkfall

    For how long? The game launched last week.

    Waiting for: World of Darkness.

    Last MMO's played: Age of Conan, The Secret World, Warhammer (an old account I reactivated)..

    My age: 37

    MMO experience: 11 years. My first was Asheron's Call 2.

    Gaming experience: I started with arcade games like Pacman and Space invaders when I was about 5. Then at 7, my parents got an Apple IIc and I started playing my first RPGs. Later, in my teens I played mostly sports games on playstation (i didn't have a computer). I only really got back to PC gaming after college, at 22.

    I've played most major releases since AC2 but the only one I've managed to stick with longer than a couple months is WoW (5 years straight + several returns).

    Now I'm sick to death of quest progression and I can't stomach another themepark clone so I'll be playing exclusively sandboxes or PvP centric MMOs like Warhammer/CU from now on.

    Darkfall is reviving my interest in the genre, I'm finding in this game just about everything I enjoyed in the first MMOs I tried that made me love the genre.

    Good luck finding a good MMO that suits your needs, OP.

    Playing: World of Tanks and War Thunder

    For how long? About 2 years

    Waiting for: I'm looking for an MMOFPS to play... Not many around, and none are any good. Was hoping Defiance would be awesome, but alas it's crap. Standalone Day Z would work. Since I have a combat oriented youtube channel I kinda have to stick to games where you can blow sht up. lol

    Last MMO's played: Tried to go back to EVE and WoW, but didn't take.

    My age: 38

    MMO experience:17 years (when UO went gold)

    Gaming experience: I still own a working Atari 2600 lol

    Playing: Age of Wushu for the most part, i get on other games every now and then, but nothing serious.

    For how long?: About 4 weeks, played a week about before offical launch, and then rerolled onto BLACK TORTOISE.

    Waiting for: Wildstar

    Last MMO's played:Guild wars 2, WoW, a little EVE, i got on AoC for like 5 minutes. thats all just recently, like (6-8  months)

    My age:  17

    MMO experience: Been playing mmos since i was like 9 or 10, started with wow. I took some breaks but have been pretty much been playing any mmo that comes out for a while then eventually bailing since like 11-12ish years old LOL, wushu is ok, but I'm feeling the burn out already. Hoping wildstar will itch my itch with the 40m raids, bg/arena pvp (wowish pvp) but a lot more skill shots from the targeting system etc, and leveling paths seem pretty rad.

    Gaming experience: Been playing games as long as I could rememeber, ofc I play any big title that comes out but none of them ever hit home like that first mmo experience, so its kinda like, who gives a crap.
