How many MMOs are you currently playing (not at the same time of course) and active in? It can be free, buy to play or pay to play MMOs or even in alpha/beta stage.

    I am active (and also subscribed) to two MMOs. Lord of the Rings Online and World of Warcraft. I like both a lot, though I'm more into LOTRO right now. But WoW has its own charms still, and its nice to be able to switch between the two since only playing one MMO for me gets a little tiring.

    I do play games in other genres though...like Crusader Kings 2, Europa Universalis 4, Mount and Blade Warband and Warhammer Total War. Most games I play that aren't MMOs are more strategy/rts or city builders since those don't really work for MMOs (or at least no good ones have been made yet anyway).

    Apparently if I don't currently play an MMO, I hate MMOs. 
    Which isn't far from the truth considering the consensus of what they are...

    Well, someone can definitely hate the current state of MMOs, as you kind of pointed out :)

    It depends of my free time, and my hobbies.

    My Tabletop campaigns also are taking lot of my free time.

    Usually I have a fixed amount of games I play to "every situation"... Like 1 pvp focused, 1 pve relaxing, 1 casual.... and so on.

    MMO wise I'm focusing on LoTRo while FF14 stays secondary... followed by some indie titles that I check time to time.

    None, idk about hate....thats a strong word not satisfied with the current state is more like it. Why do things have to be absolute for some people like good/evil. If I don't actively currently play any mmos does that really mean I hate mmos?

    doesn't make any sense what if the people that aren't currently playing it are just not playing it right now because they are just limited on time all of a sudden or going on vacation for a few weeks does that ever occur to you?
    The acronym MMORPG use to mean Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game.

    But the acronym MMMORPG now currently means Microscopic Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. Kappa.

    actually 1 1/2.

    Black Desert is my one mmo but I'm dipping my feet back into Lord of the Rings online bit by bit.

    I've been actively playing TSW, and eso mostly but I jump into wow once in a while and I'm thinking about playing lotro again.  I think I have a problem.  I'm not playing any MMO right now though, I'm waiting for a replacement power supply for my PC to come in

    Big fat zero .notta .none,zilch

    When a good quality effort comes along.i'll play it but seeing the last 5-10 new games popup on Twitch i would have to say the market looks awful,would be lucky i give any these new games a 4-5/10.

    I'm not currently playing what I think of as an MMO but I am playing a few games some people think are MMO's but aren't.

    That doesn't mean I hate MMO's. It just means I don't have one worth playing at the moment.
  • DeadSpockDeadSpock Member UncommonPosts: 364
    You can only play 1 mmorpg at a time, whoever says otherwise is making 0 progress in any of the many they play. Mmorpg = grind with daily/weekly if you play more than 1 you won't be able to even grind the easy dailys let alone end game and gearing up.
    Just playing FFXIV at the moment I do try other games here and there but only play 1.

    Currently I have 3 subs, but two of them are about to roll off. I maintain a FFXIV sub because I like the game and have the annual thing, but I'm not actively playing it right now.

    I can only really play one MMO at a time though. I was on WoW when Legion released, I went over to ESO for a bit, I'm starting to fall back over to WoW since my guild there has started to pick back up but that could change.

    Really depends on whichever game I get involved in an active guild/community - that's the one I'll spend most of my time in.

    It really might help if you read the forums before you post for the exact same question.

    It is, in fact, right at this moment the 4th from the top on the exact same forum.

    Only MMO I'm playing if FFXIV... but I'm probably part way though about a half dozen single player games at the moment.

    That isn't the same question at all though.

    Answered two but it is hard to answer.  TSW is the only "MMO" I play right now that is a typical MMO.  Warframe is what I play most but it isn't really a true MMO?  Play WoT but it is a MOBA.  I am hoping for an MMO to come sweep me off my feet though and make me want it as my one and only.

    I worked it out.  168 hours in a week, of which you spend;
    56 hours sleeping or resting
    40 working
    16 or so work related (lunch, travel to and from, prepping clothing, extra work stuff at home, and so on)
    20 or so living (eating, shopping, grooming, running errands, etc)
    That's 132 hours, leaving 36 for optional stuff.

    If you have family (like me), pets (like me) and interests other than computer gaming (like me), that leaves no more than 20 for games.  A lot of weeks its only 10-15.  It would be really really hard to spread that 10-20 hours a week over more than one game, unless you can take it from other categories.  Who needs sleep?  I can always work part time and live in a cardboard box!  Who needs to shower? (ewwwww)

    Of course, there are those out there who game with their families or game for a living (lucky little shits) who can deduct time from the work and family categories.  That is my holy grail, btw...

    So that's one game at a time for me, and right now that game is DCUO on Xbox One.  When Bless Online releases, that will be the only one I have time for, and when Ship of Heroes goes into testing, well, good luck finding me anywhere else...


    The world is going to the dogs, which is just how I planned it!

    I don't have time to balance two MMOs. I have to get at least one character to max level before I even think of moving to another.

    It does sound a bit romantic when you put it that way lol.

    None, actively that is. Still subbed to FF14 but finding it hard to find any incentive to log in. Probably should cancel my sub since I'm pretty much not using it except for like 1 day every 2-3 weeks or so. Just cant seem to find one that grabs me by the collar. Also waiting for Pantheon...looks amazing!!
