I had 4 MMO's I'm considering to start or go back for 2014. WOW, DCUO, EVE, Wildstar.
If I went back to WOW, it would only cost me $15 and I would be able to enjoy the PvP/arena I have over the last years. That's my 1st choice right now. I just dunno if it's worth paying a sub for arena PvP and I would also have to shell another $40 soon for expansion.
If I went back to DCUO it would also cost me $15 to unlock the couple of DLC's I've missed over the year. I would enjoy the PvP some of the new duos, alerts, raids and IP itself. DCUO does not have some PvP ranking, but I enjoy the combat far more than WOW and I can get into the action anytime alone in 1v1, 2v2, 4v4 etc. I'm mainly worried about how much fuel DCUO got left with the diminishing population to continue deliver publishes, content on pace.
EVE, only played this game for a month. But from the MMO's mentioned above it seems to be the most compelx and economy/sandbox engaging MMO. I would most likely not enjoy the first couple of months with poor ship and low income, but I might have far more fun in the long run. I would have to go through a big learning curve and I just wonder if it's not too late to start this MMO that people been playing for over a decade. The passive skill training and slow combat is its main drawback for me.
Finally, Wildstar. Does it worth to pay the box fee upfront and take the risk with this MMO? But more importantly does it worth to vote with my wallet on something that I clearly wish the genre to move on from. I simply do not trust the themepark formula by how many MMO's over the last 5 years have lost their momentum with it. Regardless, Wildstar would most likely be a fun ride for couple of months to kill before I go back to searching of new home due to lack of new rides. If WOW can't keep up with content? Can Wildstar do it?
Anyways, in 2 months from now I know what I'll enjoy again for free and that's Path of Exile new league on hardcore. With each league the game it's been improving and it clearly has a lot of issues to address, but it's been the filler game for me to kill some of the time while I've been waiting and waiting for "that" MMO.
So, those are my plans and I'll decide soon if I'll get engaged in some of those MMO's. What are your plans this year so far?
