    I say invest your time in Netflix and single player games.

    Mmos - either play 15+ year old titles or play a much worse derivative that is newer MMOs (same concept just done worse, more shallow gameplay, more rng, more cash shop)

    IMO single player games and Netflix is the best time investment

    Ok, which MMOs you liked before(and why)? Ditto for the ones you disliked.

    The direction of the mmorpg industry is just not the same as it once was. You have companies who hire people mainly familiar with single players with little to no idea on how mmorpgs actually work along side publishing departments wanting to recruit people who primarily play single player games.

    Allright then !

    Games i allready tryed and sort of left for good since they bored me or was badly supported.

    Wow - Gw2 - Eq2 - Eso - Aion - Final fantasy mmo game - Runes of magic - Tera - Shaiya -
    Secret world - Lotr - Warframe - Path of exile - Lol - Rift - BDO - Neverwinter - Dnd - Ryzom -
    Linage 2 - Rappelz - Diablo 3 And many more games that are dead and gone today.

    This is all my games i tryed and few shooters, but im bad at aim so i stay away from shooters.

    I still play warframe to log in each day and make the dayli quest rewards and then im bored.
    In the old days it was fun to play wow and climb the pvp ladder or do dungeons for loot.
    Today i feel this part has been ruined some how

    Ok some advice.

    Trove. If you can get past the Voxel graphics, this game is by far one of the best MMO's on the market. You name it, this game has it, in a simplified and clunky blocky way. 

    GW2. While I personally cannot stand the way the went with the game, this does not make it any less a great game in it's own right.

    BDO (Black Desert Online) Amazing Game, the graphics are outright enamoring, and there is so much to do, you can literally make your own fun here or ride the rails, it's all open to you, this game even has Ass Physics (given we spend 98.275% of our time staring at the back of our avatars, this is a nice touch).

    DDO (Dungeons and Dragons Online) Not for th Casual, this game forces you to think and play a full one game of planning ahead and being prepared, for Hardcore Boy Scouts and rabid D&D geeks that like 3.5 rules only. The graphics are old and dated, just like the 3.5 game rules it's based on.

    Warhammer 40K Eternal Crusade. If you love the idea that no matter who wins a bunch of cheaters will lose, this is the Arena game for you.

    I cant stand minecrafty games and yes GW2 is bad because its a game that plays it self..you just need to move around and press the enemy..alot of autocasting and hardly any dungeons..also the crafting is bad. and i dislike jump quest.

    DDO i tryed and got to a point where i felt i had to spend money to progress.
    And the servers was laggy due to i live in denmark, so i had horrible lag..like the enemy had soap under ther feets.

    Warhammer was great in the RTS game.

    BDO looks great, but it felt like i was just smashing bottons and then i won the fights..the enemy dident even want to come at me and fight before they died. And all this farmer stuff was to much for me to get in to..it was plain and boring,,i could play farmer simu if i wanted

    I do. But many find the newer MMOs more to their liking. Most are just too actiony for my personal tastes :smile:

    I do play Wizard101 on occasion, but not often. Otherwise, I play old MMORPG emulators like P1999 (EQ).

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Perhaps you are just bored of the typical MMO which hasnt been changed much in 20 yrs. I am done playing MMO because im bored of the genre, any thing new will just be similar to what i have played before.

    Try a new genre, it may broaden ypur horizons. I went back to SC2 and i just downloaded fortnite as im bored of my main genres in MMO and ARPG

    To answer your question, or points.

    Trove. It's Voxel, told you that ahead of time.

    GW2. (Guild Wars 2) I admit, Core Open World is pretty easy button. Very Casual kind of play, which is what makes it a very attractive game for that demographic. But if you are the kind of player that needs to get your ass beat by an NPC, I encourage you to get HoT and go run around, especially in Tangled Depths. Or if you feel the need to get a beat down by other players, GW2 can provide this as well, with WvW or sPVP game modes. There is no shortage of ways for you to get your ass kicked in this game, if that was what you were looking for.

    BDO: (Black Desert Online) There is a lot more to this game than the combat. If that was all you did, you barely touched 1% of what the game can provide, but then again, given your comment about "Farming Simulator" it seems all you want to do run around and kill stuff. So, to be honest, BDO is most likely going to be far too deep and complex game than what you are looking for.

    DDO: (Dungeons and Dragons Online) I told you this was not a casuals game, you don't walk into this game and get everything handed to you all nice and easy.  While you can earn everything short of the expansions for free, you have to work for it or pay for it. This is not a game for weaklings, this is not the game for butterflies.

    But given what you have said so far, that you are simply looking for fast battles and easy access content.

    I am going to suggest you give WH40EC a try, and maybe check out Overwatch.

    It seems you are looking for a meaningful progression with a side of PvP. Or the other way around, but those seem to be the things you are looking for. You probably played it, but what the hell:

    Blade and Soul. Very nice story, nice progression and very nice PvP.

    Though you could've also outgrown the genre. Maybe try other genres? Don't matter whether old or new. But just another question:

    Why was it "fun" to play wow back in the day? What made climbing the pvp ladder or running dungeons fun? Something within the game or outside of it?

    MMORPGs simply don't work. There's not a "massive" audience for an even slightly sophisticated online RPG. 

    I saw Project 1999 mentioned once in this thread. That is an interesting case, however if you speak to the GMs and ask them whether they adhere to the policies of classic Everquest, they will tell you no they do not, they were too free for them. Hence... too sophisticated for them, they would rather ban players, than allow any kind of social systems to form.

    If you think there is a massive audience anywhere for a slightly sophisticated online RPG it is likely an illusion. Depending how sophisticated you wish it to be you might count your fellow players on one hand truly.

    Hence any kind of good days of MMORPGs were purely transient. The golden age of MMORPGs was probably 1995-1999.

    After I left World of Warcraft in my 20s I played just enough MMORPGs after to realize 1) no good ones were coming, 2) most of the ones I had played in my 20s were not good, and 3) "classic" MMORPG servers were either a lot of hoopla, flawed in some way, or lacking the many hundreds of players needed for the game to function as it should.

    But anyway here would be my list for the last surviving rays of hope in MMORPGs:

    1) Old Tibia servers (maybe? my experience is limited)
    2) Meridian 59 Classic servers (nearly empty though, and not truly classic)
    3) Maybe a classic Ultima Online shard, but the main one I found distributed hacks with the client, and was nearly empty.
    4) I have heard something about an Asheron's Call classic server, but never played it or know anything about the game. (from I have read, this looks like a bad idea. would probably have the same problem with Project1999 of poor admins)
    5) Project 1999 (but the policies are the polar opposite of Everquest in 1999, I wouldn't spend a moment of my time on here, but I list it only for completion)

    Great input from you all so far, but Its not that i only like fast and easy games.i dont even like overwatch..i hate batle royal games..i want a game where i can log in and progress.

    Its just BDO looks so damm boring it reminds me of a trading game. I dont even understand why you can cast spells when its not needet for anything because you are to busy gathering or tale care of ur farmers or pets and what not. Also it takes hours to run from town to town when you dont have a horse that you also need to breed and take care of..zzzz yaawn.

    And i know DND isent ment for kidz, but its p2w game and also outdated..i think it was on the edge to die anyway.

    I guess i liked wow because it was new and the golden mmorpg era was 1995 to 2000 ish

    I dont even think there is any games for me..i try to like em all..but there is no pulse
