    Which past mmos would you consider great then?  Let me guess, you hated those too.  Typical mmo gamers, always looking for the non-existent, "perfect", mmo.  :confused:
    Great, EQ, EQ2 through to Kunark, WoW through to WotLK, Rift vanila. Planeshift showed promise but never delivered there were others and there were some I missed due to work or because I was too busy playing something else.

    Star Citizen is not an MMORPG and most likely not even an MMO and others are small to medium niche games.



    says you. By the definition of THIS site, it is.

    Not surprising. Even Blizz decides not to make new MMORPGs. 

    On the bright side, there are tons of other fun online (or not online) games. It is not like we are running out of entertainment any time soon.
    "I wouldn't say no to ever doing an MMO again," Morhaime said."

    They're taking a break for the time being it seems. Probably a wise decision, but it's not as black and white as you seem to obsess over.
    So how long is this "break"? Is there a MMORPG they are working on that I am not aware of?

    Is the statement that "blizz decides not to make new mmorpg" wrong at this time? And why are you obsessed to insist that a company that has no plans to make a mmorpg will do so in the future?
    Lol.

    No obsession here. I don't give two shits if Blizzard makes another MMORPG or not. It's just that you're continuously trying to paint a picture that has them never ever ever making another one. Which is not necessarily the case as per Morhaime. 

    You're trying to stir shit up as usual (which I am sure many here would agree is some sort of an obsession) and I'm merely correcting you.

    Why are people saying Blizzard gave up on mmorpg, they have the most profitable, the most popular mmorpg that exists.  When you are number one you don't make anymore because you already beat everyone and are king of the genre.  If you don't like wow anymore then too bad for you, it's still the undisputed leader.

    If you have the biggest, most profitable mmorpg on the market you would be insane to make another one because it could hurt that title. 

    To give you an idea of how popular wow is (even now), it's closes competitor in the p2p arena is FFXIV.  FFXIV is on pc, ps3, ps4 and mac and has been released worldwide (including on steam) and it's considered a success even though it has never even broken 1 million subscribers.  Wow is 15 years old? and is fairly cheap to produce content for compared to 14,and at it's lowest point ever has well over 3 million subscribers.

    To an extend Blizzard has paid the price of greed with WOW and that cost them over half in revenue drop in the last expansion as well as they permanently lost half of its player base that won't be buying Legion on launch. I even ensured to confirm this with polls. Blizzard did gave up on WOW but that's because they are only good at copying others and they had no great ideas to copy to WOW anymore as well as they introduced many terrible ones in the process and used their staff to develop things they are good at which is cinematic trailers (So Warcraft movie happened) and some other mediocre products like a trading card game, a FPS game and sequels of old popular products they had to cash on like Diablo and Star Craft.

    No thanks. B&S is dull, Black Desert will go the same route as ArcheAge, Lineage Eternal is just an L1 sequel Diablo-like wannabe and Lost Ark is another Diablo online wannabe.

    As the OS has stated, there are no good MMO's in the near or distant future. Only thing current MMO's offer is P2W cast shops.

    Any decent MMO's coming up that are not Farmville or top-down isometric based?

    are you kidding me? saying Lost Ark is Diablo wannabe proves that you don't know anything about it,

    it's top down isometric a.l.a diablo yes, but it's a full MMORPG, and it has way more features than Diablo, and do not let me start about the combat combo ability, it's just too good

    Lost Ark is basically my last hope for MMO, if this game isn't coming out globally, i am done with MMO

    i had high hopes for Tree of Savior, but it's another massive grind game :(

    So What Now?

    What would this forum be like if a great game did come along and everybody not only liked it but we all played it? WTF is that even possible?

    Not much people give a s*#$ about niche indie MMOs.

    The sooner we get back to niche MMO's with smaller like-minded player bases, the better. The quality has to be there though.

    I don't think for a moment that Blizzard has given up on MMO's, its just that they appear to be something of the perfectionists, if a game doesn't measure up to their fairly rigorous standards, it appears they are prepared to can the whole thing, in that respect Titan is a good example, that they managed to use assets from it to create Overwatch, a massively successful game in its own right, kind of gives you the idea of just how high those standards are. I think personally that Blizzard will eventually release another MMO, and whatever it is, i look forward to seeing it, because when they finally do, its probably going to be huge, it is unlikely to be F2P, it might be B2P, but odds on favourite, i think it will be P2P, because if there is one thing that WoW, FFXIV:ARR, Eve Online, and to some extent SW:TOR have proved, its that if the game is good enough, then people will pay the subscription.

    There are indie mmos in development that cover just about the entire gamut of tastes. If someone can't find something among them that interests them, they might as well find a moba or a shooter because this genre will never interest you again.

    I am decently excited about Crowfall... and I preordered Camelot Unchained, although I regret it.

    Played few very old mmorpg's,

    than i went for some more of GW2, its a good game but you get bored if you play it for long, (since there isnt any real gear progression, pvp seems like moba, but fun one at that)

    installed Archeage just to see how empty the servers are and keep my char names ,since Trion is getting desperate by threatening players they will lose char names if they dont log on ,what a laught, unninstalled again couse im too tired to grind 4 Apex and dont have time to race with p2w players

    installed Tera Online, got 2nd BiS gear in like 1-2 weeks, went to new new new, top dungeons that were rehashed, and hm, with no new content, got bored unninstalled

    decided to play witcher 3, but need to get witcher 2 first, so the world and both games amased me how good they are ,tho they dont last forever unfortunatelly,

    installed Wildstar to check out how its going now when its on steam, and saw filled newbie zones, honestly i was having trouble getting the mobs how many new players there are,
    and the game is a blast, maybe first time while leveling that i am actually having fun, and the world is stunning, once i adapted to the cartoonish graphics, i saw what depth Wildstar offers.. gonna need months for it, and thats a good thing :)


    so.. while im getting excited for possible good mmo's like Crowfall, Camelot, Elyria, SC, EQN, and few others, i wont waste time waiting for possible flops, ill play what grants me fun at this time, and when the future does come ill know if the hype was real.

    There are plenty of games. They're just mediocre at best or in perpetual Alpha at worst.
  • Agent_JosephAgent_Joseph Member UncommonPosts: 1,327

    "better" is subjective. may be for you ... but clearly not for those who would like AAA polished games.

    Which past mmos would you consider great then?  Let me guess, you hated those too.  Typical mmo gamers, always looking for the non-existent, "perfect", mmo.  :confused:
    Great, EQ, EQ2 through to Kunark, WoW through to WotLK, Rift vanila. Planeshift showed promise but never delivered there were others and there were some I missed due to work or because I was too busy playing something else.
    Many people didn't consider EQ2 great.  WoW was also considered too easy by veterans.  Rift was laughed at for being the first real WoW clone.  Never tried Planeshift.  My point is, we shouldn't judge these upcoming mmos too harshly without trying them first.  
  • GruugGruug Member RarePosts: 1,701
    This is just me but the whole f2p and cash shop thing has killed pretty much any desire for me to even want to play 99% of the MMO's currently out there. I have seen a lot of good "concepts" only to be watered down because they are f2p with cash shop. If they ever decide to make a AAA MMO without either of those, I might reconsider.

    Let's party like it is 1863!

    I'm just waiting for Mass Effect to become an MMO... and cash shops don't bother me.  :)

    Bless Online has been an MMO I have been playing since last year. Best MMO I have played in a long time.
    I am a long long time EQ2 sub player but I am finding it harder and harder to log into the game much anymore. Daybreak is not doing a good job in my opinion.

    WoW made MMOs a mainstream genre and laid out a blueprint for what works. Every major developer is now following this blueprint because it's safe. I can't blame this for it, but it's surely gotten pretty stale and everyone can feel it. I think sooner of later someone with balls, money, and vision will come through and break the genre out of the funk. Like Elon Musk but for mmos.

    In the meantime, I am plenty excited for indie/niche mmos. WoW legacy saga has shown there are multiple niches in the MMO market, and they are not necessarily small. If 100,000 players want a specific MMO and you can make it, you stand to earn some serious cash. An RvR mmo with no raids, or an MMO for raiders where you start out at max level and just do raids, etc, etc. I am perfectly fine with a world not dominated by a single MMO that everyone plays. Variety is good.

    Could be an interesting MMO for sure. Not sure they would make one because of their SW MMO though.

    Yep taste is a personal thing. But I know that I won't like Camelot Unchained, but I expect it to be a good game other people like maybe even love.  The others on your list I don't think will be delivered or will be bad, subjective opinion of course. Pantheon I am hoping will be good, but I have low expectations, I an not sure it will release and the quality of the product is unknowable at this point.

    The only upcoming MMO that I'm even remotely interested in is Soul Worker Online and thats only cause its the closest thing we'll get to a westernized PSO2 which is what I currently play.
