MMO of the Decade

    I would have to lean towards Guild Wars 2. Even though I don't play it anymore I think it had some of the best mechanics. Especially the quest mechanics where anyone can join a quest just by walking into an area. I still haven't tried BDO. Is it still as grindy as everyone says it is? As i get older I tend to steer clear of games where I have to grind hordes of mobs.

    Another year won't save this dumpster fire. Nothing is even coming out for years.

    Calling a standard unit of measurement "arbitrary" was edgy though.
    If 2010-2019 is a decade, then is 1 BC through 9 AD also a decade?
    0-9.

    Let's do centuries now. The 20th century started in what year?
    There was no year 0.

    The 20th century AD started in 1901.  If you don't want to restrict to AD, then we don't know when the first century was.
    a century is from  0 - 21 , it is accumulation of 100 years. 

    the 20th Century started on 1900, s you add 100years to 1900  you come to 2000 the millennia which is the 21st century.

    FFXIV maybe or something stupid like Monster Hunter:World. 

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Astronomers[edit]

    In astronomy, for the year AD 1 and later it is common to assign the same numbers as the Anno Domini notation, which in turn is numerically equivalent to the Common Era notation. But the discontinuity between 1 AD and 1 BC makes it cumbersome to compare ancient and modern dates. So the year before 1 AD is designated 0, the year before 0 is −1, and so on.

    @Quizzical is correct. There's no such thing as 0AD. The year of a date doesn't represent how many years have passed.
    no and no. What you are agree with Quizzical is that the 1 century started at 100AD .

    My vote is for Everquest Next summarizing the MMO decade.

    It's still listed on the front page of this site's forums, as if holding up a glimmering ray of hope for a better gaming future in a "cup half full" futile gesture.

    Let's face it, it has been a lousy ten years for MMoRPGs......GW2, ESO, FFXIV, BDO, and such look pretty but the gameplay is pretty much crap in all of them.

    ?

    Let me see if I can write this in crayon.

    Romans didn't have a number for null. Numbers on the Julian calendar represent the progression of one date to another, not the amount of time that has passed. This is why there are no nulls in a month. There's no January 0.

    Using days of a month as an example, the Julian calendar represents the day we're currently completing. January 1st doesn't mean that we have already completed an entire day for January. It means that we are currently in progress of completing the first day of January. The same applies to decades, and centuries. January 1, 2020 doesn't mean that 2020 years have passed. It means that we are in the progress of the 2020th year. Therefore, midnight on January 1st, 2021 will be the beginning of a new decade.

    Let me dumb it down a little more. 

    You're level 1. This does not mean that you have already completed a level. It means you're currently in progress of filling up your EXP bar to reach the 2nd level.

    Level 1 …. Level 2 = 1 level
    Level 2 …. Level 3 = 2 levels
    Level 3 …. Level 4 = 3 levels
    Level 4 …. Level 5 = 4 levels
    Level 5 …. Level 6 = 5 levels
    Level 6 …. Level 7 = 6 levels
    Level 7 …. Level 8 = 7 levels
    Level 8 …. Level 9 = 8 levels
    Level 9 …. Level 10 = 9 levels
    Level 10 …. to midnight, January 1st, level 11 = 10 levels

    If you celebrated completing 10 levels at level 10, you're wrong. You may be level 10, but you haven't yet completed it.

    Do you seriously not beleive that the 15th century covered the priod from January 1st, 1401 - December 31st, 1500?

    Black Desert for me also.

    It is the best mmo to come along since the ones we got back in 2002-2004 with World Of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XI, Everquest 2, Eve Online, Guild Wars and Lineage 2. That period was the best of all time imo. Since then it has mostly been WoW clone after WoW clone until a a little unknown company named Pearl Abyss decided to be different and look at what it has done for them.  ;)

    MMO of the decade. Would have to give it WoW. Even after all this time people are still chasing after its success and though it doesn't have the popularity it did in 2010 it is still a very popular game.


    WoW is more MMO of the last decade not the current one.  It is so weird thinking of WoW as the Mr Magoo of current games.  I always thought of Everquest or Asheron's Call as that in the past.

    Darkfall online hands down. True fps combat, full loot, territory control and meaningful gameplay where strive to play to get better. Add things like spawnable/steal-able/kill-able mounts/ship asset damage. Closet to a fps mmorpg we ever got thus far.

    I haven't liked a single one launched in the past decade.... in fact I haven't liked one released after 2004. The closest I came was SWTOR, but the world design was so bad it killed the whole game.

    Tried BDO - Hated it. That was when it first came out though, maybe it has improved. Maybe it isnt a Pay to win game anymore. But could just be because ive been playing Eve since beta. Only took a 2 year break when SWG was a thing until they made it a poopy console game.

    BDO for me as well... even though Kano is right about the awfulness of the cash shop and the bullshit rng systems that exist solely to push you to it.

    My MMO of the decade otherwise would have been SWTOR, but the new content couldn't hold a candle to the original class stories. And yes, the world design was pretty crap as someone mentioned already.
