    So the OP asks for informed opinions and people start pulling the "It's all subjective" card?

    OP, try FFXIV:ARR.

    Problem is he said pvp and if you've played it you would know the pvp in that game is garbage.

    The Secret World, it might not be a mmo, but it is a PvE aand PvP coop game that has crafting!

    I'm a lifetime subscriber to TSW and I have been playing on and of since launch, its a great game.

    FFXIV:ARR is a PVE game, it does have some PVP, but its very limited, i wouldn't call it garbage, but i would call it a 'token effort'.

    You did mention that you played only old-school MMOs, but still said that you want to play BDO, which is as far from the old-school concept as you can get.

    So out of the modern MMOs, ESO is by far the best. It's journey to the endgame is actually very enjoyable, very immersive, and the PvP is among the best this genre has ever seen. Luckily for ESO it's made from an IP that is very popular, or it would have ended the same as all other MMOs that seemed better than WoW but failed anyway due to lack of marketing budget and no loyal following.

    You'll have to wait until Dec 2017 when Chronicles of Elyria is scheduled to release.

    I am picky when it comes to my choice of a MMO.  I like MMO's that have it all.  Good PVE, Immersion, Crafting, and PVP. Games I do like are EQ2, LOTRO, and DAOC.   They are all very old school.

      I was thinking BDO.  But it really does have a serious hacking issue.  Is Age of Conan still a good option? SWTOR?  I keep going back to LOTRO.

    What are the current mmo's that can offer these qualities?  I keep finding myself going back to LOTRO.  Only because it offers all the qualities I look for except for pvp.

    So what newer titles are out for the offering.  Which do you think are the best ones?
    Which server are you playing LOTRO on?  I stay away from the PVP myself right now as I am slowly doing every deed in the game on my warden.  But Arkenstone has seen a major increase in the Freeps and Creeps lately because of the merges.  A lot of rank farmers in groups though.  Was just curious. 

    Like you I have gone back and forth with LOTRO myself for years.

    You may enjoy Project Gorgon if you are looking for an old school feel that is totally do whatever you want kind of feel to it.  Don't think there is PVP though but could be wrong haven't logged in for a while.  Hell you can play as animals if you want to!  Very small development team but a gem in the rough kind of game.  Little rough around the edges but overall good game.  Game is still in development but has a ton to do.

    My mistake for not thoroughly reading the OP before posting.
    Please allow me to revise:

    Black Desert is the only choice if you want a real mmo.

    Aion and Echo Of Soul.

    I've played most MMO's out there. I have since I started DAoC in 2002. So my question is, "why are you looking for a new game," since those games are still out and you enjoy them. It helps narrow down what's out there.

    Hey there just your typical over 30 gamer here just gonna give some suggestions and go back to waiting for the end.

    Wildstar
    SWTOR:Sub style. Don't play free.
    Eve

    If these three games can't scratch the itch I will refer you to the single most greatest comeback story in mmo's ever.

    FFXIV. It's a damned good game.
  • rawfoxrawfox Member UncommonPosts: 788
    .. im totally down in Los Santos atm, but best for me last years was ArcheAge .. ya, but .. and then it maybe StarCitizen.

    Other oldshoolers, well, Anarchy Online is still a great expeience, also we hear something good from SWTOR. I wish we would have Huttball like things in other games as well.
    I remember WoW as a good experience, but it was so teen style color mess. Nontheless the PvP playfields been fun for sure.

    TERA new expansion, always good to play, TERA is a cool game with nice pvp combats.

    Fallen Earth was and still is nice to play.

    When im done in Los Santos, i may checkout ESO.
    I would play ArcheAge, but the game does not like its players.

    Have you tried Scrap Mechanics ?
    xD

    I was going to get ESO for my xbone but forgot about it.  Got caught up playing Witcher and Far Cry Primal.  What does ESO cost monthly (USA)?  Does it play cross-platform with the PC crowd?  Needs xbox Gold account?

    Overwatch, obviously. Sold a lot (7M+ in its first week). Very well reviewed (90+ on metacritics).

    OP best choice is playing F2P MMO's while not buying anything that was shipped to us in these last almost 5½ years. So, that being said Marvel Heroes Online is an exceptional F2P game, which you'll be enjoying it, 100% guaranteed if you haven't played it yet. Then you have some alternative, private server MMO's which doing far better job than the actual MMO's themselves from the older, better quality ones.

    At the end play something else beside MMO's when you got nothing, better to play amazing single player or some other genre multiplayer game to help you pass the year until something good comes in early 2017. I'm certain by 2020, one great game will arrive and by 2025 the copycats will clone it to death, and hopefully unlike WOW, they will copy it into a superior quality not far worse.

    I'm optimistic by 2035-2040, players will have such amazing MMORPG's available that they simply can't afford to play at the same time. So, even grinding $ IRL right now might be better to buy yourself freedom later on.

    I think he said "MMO". I also think he said "best" not "most popular at release".

    Any mmo worth its salt should be like a good prostitute when it comes to its game world- One hell of a faker, and a damn good shaker!
