Populated MMORPG?

BlazebyteBlazebyte Member CommonPosts: 9

Hello.

 

I'm just wondering a good MMORPG with a good population / playerbase would be? Me and my friend are looking for a new MMORPG to play that isnt WoW.

 

Graphics / p2p / b2p / f2p doesn't matter. We just want something decent and good with a population and something active.

 

Im mainly asking here for your guys opinions, as I value opinions of others and this site seemed most appropriate to get opinions of this type.

 

Any suggestions that isnt WoW, runescape or gw2?

 

Thanks all!

    FFXIV

    ESO

    Archeage

     

    You don't have to look hard.

    Gorgon Online has a small (13-30 people on at any one time) player base. However the game world is not the large so you will always see people running around as it might look in a larger game. If you want players that are almost always active ( I think most of them don't actually require sleep) , outgoing, mostly friendly, and very community oriented...I can't think of a better game at the moment. It's also an insanely interesting game. For instance: My character on there is an Armored Cow, that is also a Druid, that moves like sonic the hedgehog, and is a popular published author. And, I never intended for my character to be any of that starting out (the initial plan was a male fire mage). It just kind of happened.

    ESO, TERA, SWTOR and FFXIV are probably the most populated MMOs out there after WoW. The latter two play pretty similar, while ESO and TERA are more action based.

    Normally I would've suggested Neverwinter  as well, since it's always been fairly active, but Mod 6 pulled a real number on the population and I'm not sure if it has recovered from that yet. (Since I haven't gone back in a while)

    Rift and ArcheAge also make good alternatives, as does Defiance or Firefall if you want an MMOFPS (that only goes for the latter two, Rift and AA are classic MMOs).

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Tera is a good choice. Open world and lots of players.

    I couldn't recommend FFXIV enough. Very polished and has attention to detail, more than WoW IMO. Lots of activities and different ways to level, which is nice because you can level all classes and trades from one character.

    Other games listed such as ESO, TERA, GW2, etc. are good as well.
