Tell us your first mmorpg experience, or does you even know mmorpg mean at that time. When you start it and why you quit it. Is there any interest in the game, that make you keep playing..
My first mmorpg is Lineage 1, back in Nov 1999, That game is so addictive. I play like 40+ a week, or more. The game is in 2d, (similar like Diablo2 style). But the difference it have like mostly one time is 1200+ player on at same time. This game is about grinding, hunting boss, Pk, siege.
This game is not about level, it all about the gears. Also lv up is time consuming, each lv take a while to lv up. Also hunting boss is big challenge because you have to find the boss (spawn every 1-2hr, big reward or sometime no reward for boss) also other ppl might pk you.
You can join a guild( only Prince/Princess class can form guild) Knight, Elf, Mage can join. If you a castle owner you can tax the town(which ppl pay extra for heal potion, etc) Every 2-3 day there is a seige and you have to get alliance to help. To win the siege a prince/princess must pass 2 door to the throne (not easy). The front gate will have ppl standing there to block ppl to enter. It is so fun,,,
The down fall of Lineage, i grief over the game because it is all about luck. When you hunt alot of boss it alway give you crap, try to upgrade a +4 item to +5 it failed( it mean your item gone forever) There goes like 3hr gaming time.. average i make 50k per hour with hunting it is so boring..
I quited the game in 2002 almost like 3yr.. But the game is getting not fun because of so many restriction on PK, swearing, too much update make the game item suck. Mage's magic book suppose so expensive but with update they make everyone can afford one, so everyone is common..
*** Update ** Most regret thing is I never get a real castle siege, because at that time i got a crappy PC. I was using a AMD, cpu 300mhz, But i quit it after 2002 (omg i can't recall it!!)
