Presently, I am playing EVE, I enjoy it, and I like the thoughtfulness of the game. However, I also enjoy just bashing heads in PVP, and good PVE content.
EVE is great, but I am looking for another game for when I feel mindless killing is in order.
I have room in my budget for one more MMORPG. I presently have WOW, WAR, CO, and Pirates of the Burning Sea. None are on sub though.
This is the way I see it.
WoW--I have played for two years have two level 80's, one was raiding regular 25 man ICE CROWN, the other i just mined with. Raiding was fun sometimes. I liked being good at what I did, however, being a dps glass cannon warlock, got to be boring. I didn't have to really think in the game. In my experience.
I had priest healer that I was leveling...and was just doing the Dungeon FINDer and leveling that way. However, as a healer at low levels ...healing is soooo freaking boring in WOW. I enjoy three BGs in WOW and the others are meh. The questing experience is okay. There were a few quest lines that were pretty awesome in WOW, but the majority were okay but not memorable. The graphics are pretty good IMO. Nothing awe inspiring but everything looks nice. In my experience.
After leveling two characters to 80, plus a DK to 80, and three other toons to over level 30...I am tired of it. I know there are players that have uber more 80's, been playing since BETA and have never tired of it. But I am not one of those people. Overall, WOW is pretty solid, but I am burned out.
WAR--I like the RVR of course. I like playing a shaman, i can heal my mates and attack stuff at the same time. I like this. I enjoy playing as a team accomplishing a goal. I also enjoy the darker theme of WAR. I have not raided in WAR yet, but I have also heard that it is basically non-existent. In my experience.
The endless free trial is really quite cool, and I am taking advantage of that right now. WAR seems to appeal very well to the casual pvp'r. The quests seem to be okay. I have not had any really cool quests yet in Tier 1. The graphics are better in WAR, but it is a little jerky. In my experience.
Champions Online-- I like the look and the graphics in this game, and my computer can handle it very well. The PVE is pretty cool, and I enjoy the missions okay. The random missions are pretty good, and i like it when a citizen approaches you and offers you a quest. So far, I have grouped in this game only on a few occasions, but it doesn't seem like people like to group in CO. Again, just in my experience.
I have not raided in this game yet, and I have heard from the forums that party imbalances are pretty crazy, and people waiting for healers all day. I also don't enjoy being stuck in just a few places. The game isn't that expansive. WOW is very expansive, and at level one you could run anywhere...might take you a while but you could do it.
Pirates of the Burning Sea--I enjoy this game. I have a history background, and like the setting. However, it is more of a EVE style game set in the Caribbean. If I wasn't playing EVE, I might play this...but it doesn't qualify as mindless killing. However, the Ship to Ship battles, and fighting on the seas is pretty cool. I used to be in a Corp/guild that used to bring me along taking bigger ships out. The community was nice overall. But, I don't see this happening.
Basically, I would just like your opinion on which game out of the above four games you would suggest playing.
