The Most Popular Sandbox MMO

FrolicksFrolicks Monterey Park, CAPosts: 2Member

I've tried searching for this, but couldn't find the answer.

 

I need your opinion. What do you think is the most populated Sandbox MMO right now? Keep it F2P please.

    Doesn't exist. You can either have a P2P sandbox, or a F2P pile of garbage. Sooner or later you have to choose I'm afraid.

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

    There is Wurm Online as well that has a free to play option.

    For me personally, I prefer Mortal Online as Wurm is a little light on combat.  Wurm has a more in depth crafting system from what I can tell but as compared to most MMOs Mortal is still a lot more in depth than the average by a great deal.

    The most populated between these two?  I have no idea.  They are both underpopulated and under-appreciated.

    Perhaps there is another with a free to play option we are still missing as well.

    ah good point i forgot about Wurm.. also Xsyon has a f2p option but its very limited.

    MO is still the best out of them i guess.

    Your best bet is probably to wait a couple years. Most promising looking sandbox games have yet to come out.

    You could try Star wars galaxies EMU, you do need the disks but theres safe torrents on the net. The game shut down but the devs of swg emu have been working for years on this project and they recently released a huge update.  Juts google swg emu

    "Popular Sandbox MMO"

    There's 3 words that really don't go together.  (almost an oxymoron)

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

    Well you can technically earn Eve game time with in game money so you can fund your own playing by playing.

    This. Salem is an incredibly unique and well thought out game.

    The second most popular and success MMO of all time is a sandbox MMO... In fact, sandboxes are some of the only MMOs that have enjoyed success since the themepark apocalypse.

    EVE online is F2p if you feel like grinding ISK for PLEX which are clickies that give you 30 days playtime.
