Basically, after years of playing Maplestory and other mmorpgs i got tired of it cos it was boring. Can anyone recommend a good mmorpg that has a Good community, fun gameplay and kindof addicting.

    LOTRO, Landroval server.  Best community I have ever played in.  Other great communties would be Vanguard and EQII, more so Vanguard.

    Id have to say Everquest 2 on the Antonia Bayle sever, with Ultima Online on the Europa Server being a close second.

    World of Warcraft. Nothing compares.

    What exactly do you mean by 'best'? That sort of info is pretty important. By 'best' do you mean largest? WoW easily has the largest community, though EQ's community still goes pretty strong. DDO has a decent sized one, too, as does City of Heroes (after many years, the main servers still reach 'red' status in the evenings). If by 'best' you mean closest, LoTRO's community is fairly tight-knit depending on your chosen server. Ragnarok Online has a strong community due to the game being almost purely party-oriented. Lineage 2 is similar in that you will need people to back you up in order to survive.

    Generally, the more solo-friendly games will have many more people playing. The more party/open-world pvp games typically have smaller communities, but they're a bit more dependant on each other and thus deeper relationships are easier to form, be that for better or worse (plenty of 'ipwntyou' drama in addition to the good stuff). I've made some really good friends in both styles of gameplay.

    If you want something that's a mix of all of the above, but with more current graphics, give Aion a try. The majority of the content is solo-ish, in that you can do it alone though certain zones will require you be aware of your surroundings (pvp), but the most rewarding stuff requires you to participate with other people; the Abyss fort raids will have the majority of the server cooperating in faction warfare. There have been a lot of changes to the game since I played though, which was well over a year ago, so do some of your own research first.

    Though there are plenty of Mmorpgs with very solid though very low pop communities, I would suggest Lotro, more specifically the unoficcial roleplaying Server Landroval, the best community in a well populated mmorpg. 

    Make it so...

    Out of all the MMOs I've tried/played, the ones with the best communities were Ryzom, LoTRO and Vanguard.  Ryzom and VG have pretty small populations though, so if you want a larger community then LoTRO is your best bet imo.

    Current: None
    Played: WoW, CoX, SWG, LotRO, EVE, AoC, VG, CO, Ryzom, DF, WAR
    Tried: Lineage2, Dofus, EQ2, CoS, FE, UO, Wurm, Wakfu
    Future: The Repopulation, ArcheAge, Black Desert, EQN

    I would say Eve. Between the great corpmates I've met on there, and the help channels which are bar none the best help channels in any mmo ever, Eve has the best community.

    It's true there are many jerks, but if you actually look around, you'll find just as many cool guys.

    LORTO hands down Valya when i played a few weaks back. Man everyone reas nice as could be and it was fun to just play with your guild mates. First one in a while that you can get crafting things from with such a high cost to make without having to pay anything for. Least for me in here its been a while since i have had that nice of a group.

    Once upon a tiem i'd have said City of Heroes. The community was great there for the first couple of years, helped by the fact that the game encouraged 8 man grouping for everything you did. Nowadays it's more of an eltist game where vets only group with vets etc.

    SWG pre-CU. But it's too late for that.

    The CoH community reminds me of a cult.

    Absolutely agreed.

    I concur with the poster above that EvE has a great community. Just don't trust any of them and you'll survive in it.

    I too agree with LotRO having a great community but I wouldn't go as far as saying the best-only because there are many other games out there I have yet to really get into.

     

    I play on Windfola and from my experience with the game over the length of a year I have never had any bad player interactions and everyone is always helpful. :)

     The danger of those vet badges viewable by everyone. ( ' ;

    CoH still has a strong community, but the boards are where the elitists hang out mostly.  Fortunately, you can spot most of them by their absurdly high post counts (anything going over 2,000 with an air of cockiness should be a red flag).

    +1 for truthiness.

    this post really says it all. ive played a LOT of mmo's and the above statement is totally true. time and again, after wandering the mmo wastelands of today i always end up back in one of those 3 mmos: Vanguard, EQ2, or LotRO. the communities are outstanding, each has a different approach to content, but its always in depth and robust.

    check out these 3, if you dont care for any of them, im not sure where to point you to, except back to the asian f2p market.

    LOTRO by far IMO.

  • AoriAori Member EpicPosts: 4,174

    Really depends on what you're looking for in a community..

    WoW has the most diverse sub communities you'll ever find and its not hard to find your niche.

    Lotro had a more than normal helpful community depending on your server. Some servers have an elitist attitude towards F2Pers. Don't know how much has changed recently.

    Lineage2 has the most cutthroat stab ya in the back community. There is a few good clans around to hang with to make it enjoyable, however ya gotta find em. One of the few games that can form very strong bonds in though can break just as easy.

    Aion seems to be neglected but on the Asmodian side alot of people are helpful and quite active.

    Rift community is stil rather new and is up and down. People come and go with that game so it IMO hasn't stablized.
