People call Destiny 2, Path of Exile and many similar games to DDO as NOT MMOs.
However, even at peak subscriptions...I barely saw any people in the hub in DDO because it was sanctioned off to many sub-channels. Where as, DDO is more like Destiny 2 where there is a hub (with many sub channels) and then instanced groups.
So if Destiny 2 and PoE are not MMOs, then DDO by definition can not be an MMO. However, Turbine (the developers themselves) and many other sites and players call DDO an MMO...so that would mean Destiny 2 and PoE (and similar games) are also MMOs.
So which one is it? Did Turbine lie and misadvertise DDO as an MMO? Or is it an MMO which would also then mean Destiny 2 and PoE are as well?
