Games I've played and am NOT interested in: LotRO, WoW, Rift, AoC
I'm fine with the "holy trinity" class dynamic, but wouldn't be opposed to something different. I've seemed to like everything but tanking. I'm just not dextrous enough to tank successfully (it could also be that I play on a laptop, atop a tray table, while sitting back in a recliner or easy chair. I ain't twitchy.).
I loved Rift's "Rifting" in the beginning/ early levels: casual, come one come all public quests/ grouping. Since that disappears around level 20ish, around the same time the population disappaears, Rift doesn't work for me. Basically, I want to play and have fun, and if we wipe, we wipe, life goes on. The real world is pressure enough, I certainly don't want some high-stressed gamers to deal with when I left real-world stress in an office or on a train.
Are there any MMOs out there where the community understands that they're playing a GAME? Too many people take these things far too seriously. I'm not in a race to get anywhere in a game.
Some non-combat diversions would/could be fun. If you could progress your crafting without engaging in combat at all, that'd be great too, just as an option for an alt.
I'm done paying box prices for games. Don't care how awesome the game is supposed to be, I don't do it anymore. I really liked LotRO's non-exploitative cash shop (dropped a load of cash in it), so much so that it got me to spend more than I really needed to. Grind-lessening purchase options are nice.
Basically, I'd love a F2P version of Rift where the public questing continues on vibrantly, and where the community didn't get their panties in a bunch at everything. And as a note, I'm not usually the one who causes wipes when I group, but I can't stand the people who get worked up when somebody does. That makes it no fun for me. I enjoy the actual playing more than the pixels in a bag when we down the boss.
EDIT: And I hate add-on reliant games. Having to scour the web for dozens of add-ons to "compete" is not something I'll do. It's gotta be in the game.
Thanks in advance, and I understand that this fantasy game I'd like probably doesn't exist. Still, can't hurt to ask.
