I'm interested in hearing what people's favourite MMORPG are, whether old or new and what their most hated MMORPG is as well.
I'll start it off:
Favourite MMORPG:EVE Online- Player driven economy
- Offline/online skill system
- No level cap
- All players on 1 server only
- A very deep crafting system
- Territorial PvP warfare
- PvP takes skill and experience
- Best MMORPG Community I have ever seen in any other game
- Teamwork is required, if not you might as well stop playing
- So much more
A game that is Incredibly complex and sophisticated to the point that you would want to rip your hair off. The learning curve so steep that it will really test your patience to the limit. Just look at the below image and you will grasp an idea of what i am talking about.
After that learning curve though, you will experience an MMORPG unlike any other. I have to admit, I trialed it first and didn't like it because it was too complex. Then another friend of mine told me about it because he started playing and wanted me to try it again, so I did. I played it for about 8 months non stop, hardcore! I was a Corp (guild) leader and ran made sure everybody was having a good time and we had regular meetings to discuss the future of the corp. Merging with alliances and exploring the richest and most dangerous part of Eve '0.0 Sec'. Learning about the ingame politics and creating your own community and socialising with others. Hiring mercenaries to do your dirty work. I could go on for hours.
If I have to summarise why I love it so much I would say, the freedom to do whatever you want. As for the story? hehe It's your own mate. All yours.
yes I did mention I played it for 8 months, which means i am no longer playing it. Why? Well running a Corp is hard as any guild leader has ever had to do. Running one in EVE Online is even harder! Let's just say drama happened and I couldn't be bothered to start over, instead I quit. And if I join the game again now, all I would end up doing is hiring Mercenary corporations to War Deck the people that back stabbed me. Which means I won't be playing the game or enjoying it anymore, instead I stay clear of it lol.
World of Warcraft
The game itself is just fine but the community in my experience was really bad. I don't like to hide the fact that I am a muslim but the problem is you get flamed when people find out you are a muslim, that's just to be expected these days unfortunately. In WoW, it's just plain stupid and ignorance that is just unbearable. Sometimes makes me feel like wanting to reach out through the monitor and just slap them across the face lol.
Ok so lets forget the muslim bit, lets talk about the game experience when it comes to playing it with the community. EVERYBODY
is solo. lol I didn't even get to max level because of the ill mannered people I play with every time. I just got demotivated and stopped playing it.
Oh and yes I did play it over and over again everytime they give you a 7 days for free. And i even got the expansion and tried it which i enjoyed to be honest just not long enough.
