Spending time being stupid on forums is an even bigger waste of time.


I like MMORPGs, I have played over 25 of them (I know..) - my laptop fails so I can't play a lot anymore (Using Ubuntu isn't helping though) once my I get my rig I'm going to start again..

Warhammer is one of the famous game nowadays, may I know what is the game play of Warhammer? can you give me a review of it? maybe I will give this a try if there's a time.
Thanks

Played WoW up until 3 weeks ago, now playing EVE.
If you want to know what any MMO is like, there's always free trials you can download and check out, and thousands of gameplay videos on youtubes, and hundreds of reviews on other sites. Google is your portal to all this wisdom.
April 2, 2009 2:57:48 AM

warhammeronline.com you will fall inlove!
April 2, 2009 3:19:15 AM

It's pointless asking people to tell you what MMOs to play, whether it's us on this forum, or professional critics, because everyone has different tastes. The best thing you can do is take some of the MMOs mentioned so far, and go try them out for yourself. Who knows, you might end up loving one that none of us would have thought of.
April 3, 2009 10:21:56 AM

Warhammer is PvP focused. You take keeps and Battle Objectives in an area of the map called the RvR lake. Watch some videos on YouTube. Keep takes/defences are off the wall crazy. Different classes then WoW and EQ which is refreshing. Siege weapons for keep takes/defence. Graphics are clean nice spell effects. Just do some research about the classes and how the game play is and come join us if you like =D.......WAAAAAGH!!
April 3, 2009 1:27:45 PM

I heard it got boring real quick. I did get it as a pressie from my missus (bought me an MMO what a darling!) and got a goblin to about level 12 before i couldnt hack the 3fps anymore or w/e it was i was getting.
By the time I'd built a new rig to play it my free month ran out and i couldnt justify paying for both WAR and WoW so bit of a shame really. Might have another punt at it...dunno at the mo.
April 3, 2009 1:41:36 PM

I'm gonna give war a shot at some stage, and lotro, now that I've given up WoW I need a fantasy MMO to take its place... and while EVE is awesome, and lasers are awesome, it doesn't quite match up to smashing someone with a big hammer.

Also, pr2thej - I think she might be trying to tell you something... "You stay in your room and play MMOs while I invite the girls around for wine and Mamma Mia"
April 3, 2009 1:54:27 PM

Mamma Mia has no place in my house, or for that matter my Street, Town, County or Country.
Ill reroll with you if you want, WoW is getting boring. PM me if you're up for it.

Eve online is the ultimate mmo, It doesn't involve casting spells and slaying paladins and all that gay ***. It is the most realistic mmo out, and the sounds and visuals are just utterly stunning.
April 4, 2009 11:11:00 AM

You can't call EVE a realistic MMO, don't even start there. Also, some people like fantasy more than sci-fi so don't go calling it 'gay ***' just because you don't like it. We don't appreciate haters on this fourm.
April 4, 2009 12:17:52 PM

One of the most realistic MMORPG I've ever seen is Face of Mankind. For example, if you choose to become a police officer and join the Law Enforcement Department, your objectives include patrolling malls and streets, checking people's criminal record, checking people for possession of drugs, or tasing and arresting criminals. You can also kill people but there's an Internal Investigation division within Law Enforcement Department who can demote, penalise or even fire you from the police force if they find out that you are a crooked cop. Arrested characters are sent to a prison planet which is also guarded by the Law Enforcement Department on the perimeter. Convicts extract minerals (in very small quantities using a mining gun), go for a walk in a prison yard, go to a visiting area to see friends from the outside world. A prison break can occur if a large force overwhelms police forces and succeeds in breaching security gates (hacking device needed / need to play a puzzle game to hack a door). However, if police forces are overwhelmed on a planet, the chief police commissioner can declare martial law on the planet and the government can then send army forces (Freedom Defense Corps) to assist.

If you choose to become a soldier and join the Freedom Defense Corps, you have a different life. A lot of time is spent in training and all kinds of drills. One of the goals in the army is to teach newbies strict military discipline (some people can't stand it and change faction). An officer might fine a private (reduce experience points or credits) even for such a minor thing as not standing in line properly or not saluting a higher ranking member. In the old version of the game FDC were usually crammed on their spaceship doing the training drills there and once in a while they launched off in large forces to overwhelm some planet.

Then there are various clans (mafia, mercenaries, pacifists) an corporations whose members have different gameplay, objectives and hierarchy compared with the army and police forces. Corporations, for example, aim to maximise their profits, mine and produce stuff, compete with other corporations. There are total eight different factions in the game and every player character must belong to one.

There are no NPCs or monsters (there used to be aliens like in the movie "Aliens" on some dark colonies but they were very rare). Everything is ran, planned and organised by players. Experiene points are needed only in the beginning to get promotions for initial ranks within your faction. If you want to advance in the ranks and become the leader of your whole faction (e.g. the chief police commissioner of the Law Enforcement Department or the general of Freedom Defense Corps), you need to be a very smart, skilful, dedicated and "well-spoken" person in real life. If you reach that level, you will need to plan agendas for your faction, pass orders, directives, instructions to the lower levels of your organisation (e.g. police commissioner to deputy chiefs, detectives etc.) and they will pass it down to the lower ranking members (detectives to constables, street cops etc.). As a chief commissioner you might need to decide on which planet police activity must be increased or decreased, whether you need to declare a martial law somewhere or not, whether to pardon or not some famous criminal, how to support or promote cooperation with the government or some other organisation, how to make your faction more efficient (reorganisation, divisions, units etc.) and so on. If you are the kingpin of the Brotherhood of Shadows (a criminal faction), you might influence what/where/how your faction produces and distributes drugs, whether you need to arrange a prison break for someone or not, which planet to try to take under your control etc.

The game plays as a first person shooter. There's a cone of fire which widens as you walk or run or narrows if you stand or crouch. The cone of fire is bigger (less accuracy) with heavier weapons, narrower with smaller fire-arms and a sniper rifle. There's a knife, taser, 3-4 pistols, 2-3 machine guns, 1-2 rifles, 1-3 types of bullets for each weapon, 3-4 grenades, 3 medikits, biocell, 3 types of "generic" armor and 6 types of "faction" armor for each faction (there are separate items for head, legs, arms and torso, 9 types of each), 5-6 implants, a lot of different types of drugs in the game (and some trivial stuff like different types of sunglasses, food, clothes). There are also a lot of different types of raw materials and component materials needed for production of items. Every item in the game has to be manufactured by someone. In order to produce an item, you need to have a production module (so one player can usually afford to specialise in producing only 1-10 types of items).

Well this thread help me find new mmo's... and also get others opinion about the game that they are playing...




Atlantica Online- Reanemeiko-Mycenae Server
April 15, 2009 10:39:04 AM

yeah i agree to that different people has a different opinion
April 24, 2009 3:08:00 PM

Kraynor is definitely true.. so two thumbs for that opinion.

There is sound in EVE? (If you don't get this don't worry, its one of many of EVE's lame meme's)

But seriously, I've gotten a character to almost 20M (just over 19M right now) and in my opinion, the game is not as epic as players themselves describe it to be. At this point in time, seeing as my soon to be expired sub isn't getting renewed, the only benefit I see is its not your typical swords and goblins game. But if done well the latter ain't so bad. To each their own I suppose.
April 27, 2009 4:21:59 PM

I used to play runescape! After a year or two my lvl 90 character got banned!!!
Because of that moment in my mmorpg history, I will never play another mmorpg ever!!!!
April 27, 2009 7:10:29 PM

I started playing Eve almost a month ago. I think the biggest plus to it is... NO GRINDING. You do NOT have to grind for anything. It's all about learning skills, and learning takes place whether you're on or offline. Just need to make sure you have some in the queue.

Also, it's huge. And it's one "server" for everyone. I think about every time I've gone on, there's over 30k people in there. But, the universe is huge too so right now it's only really crowded in the major market hubs and also where the Epic Arc is at. I'm sure there's other places, but this is from an Eve noob perspective.

I joined a Corp (guild) that's into doing their own thing, exploring wormholes, poised by stargates to "greet" travelers as they come in, constantly declaring war on alliances and corps... some would say that we're pirates, and they're probably right. But that seems the most fun to me and so that's the direction I've taken.

There's other avenues to take of course... you can mine asteroids, you can trade on the market, haul stuff, whatever you want really. There's a rookie help channel for your first 30 days where people help each other out with every question you can think of. I've had a couple of issues and did a petition, resolved in minutes. The only other time I've had a petition answered as quickly was when I started my first MMORPG, EQ. ***Tangent: My first time in EQ and I fall in some water while looking around, and can't get out... so I figured out about petition and submitted one. Next thing I know, some huge figure of a GM appeared before me (he was a barbarian toon and I was a gnome) and then I'm summoned right beside him. I didn't know what to say or do, and then he gives me some cake and drink. Then poof, he disappeared. I think that experience, as much as anything else, got me hooked on EQ and MMORPGs.***

And RE: a few posts above, yeah, CoD4 made a few fps games pongish. Can't wait for CoD6 (CoD5 is just CoD4 with WW2 stuff). Hopefully CoD6 won't be WW2 again.
April 27, 2009 9:47:00 PM

Damn pirates...
I'm in a corp that runs mining ops in lowsec areas (areas that aren't as well protected by NPC guards as others, so ganking is more frequent), and since I find mining boring, I run as a guardian. Good fun.

Anyway, EVE ftw, especially with the new quests that give you a basic grasp of some of the key concepts of the game.
April 28, 2009 5:13:01 PM

The newness and having so much unknown, wanting to be known, drove me through most of my year and couple months in EVE. The average lifespan of an EVE player is about 8 months I beleive, give or take a few. Time will tell I suppose.
April 29, 2009 4:56:34 AM

I have a thing for free to play Korean MMOs. But anyway here are all the MMORPGS that I've played:

Ragnarok Online: Anime-like graphics, big community. Tends to be a grindfest.
World of WarCraft: don't think anyone needs me to tell me about this game.
FlyFF: Anime-like 3D graphics, big community. Tends to be a grindfest, average intelligence/age of players is very low. Played this a lot longer than any of the other games though, can't explain why lol.
Sword of the New World: awesome graphical style that reflects a kind of mesh between fantasy and 17th century Europe. You control three characters at a time instead of one. Downside, doesn't seem like there's many people playing.
EVE Online: one of the best, huge complex game world. Incredibly steep learning curve that makes it all the more rewarding. Downside is it can get so ronrey in space...haha.
Lunia: Cartoony action MMORPG. Think Marvel v. Capcom meets Gauntlet Legends. Very fun, doesn't require huge time commitment.
Atlantica Online: Average story and art, but brilliant turn-based combat system. Currently playing now.
April 29, 2009 2:16:43 PM

Played LOTRO for a couple years and loved it but was never really into that whole fantasy thing so havent bothered for a while now tho.
Warhammer, tried for a month and got kinda bored altho the pvp is fun tho.
And I have been playing eve for a few weeks now, its great but as im a noob I want a pirate core to help me and go do some pvp!!
For any eve players im : captainherouk - be my friend!
April 29, 2009 4:49:28 PM

you played lotro for a couple of years??

i thought that game is newly released???
April 30, 2009 9:33:18 AM

The mines of moira is the latest update but the game has been out quite a while now, I havent logged in for a year but got a lvl50 champ and lvl50 minst lurking around on my account.
April 30, 2009 6:50:38 PM

I played Warhammer for a while, and that one was a LOT of fun. I liked the open group system and the open pvp areas right next to pve areas. Taking keeps is a lot of fun in that game.

I've been playing free games the past month or so.

PerfectWorld is pretty fun, but the leveling after 30 gets quite a bit slower as you start to run out of quests to do. It's supposed to pick up again sometime after 40. Flying is fun in that game and makes you miss it.

I also started playing Runes of Magic, which looks nearly identical WoW, but with improved graphics. That one is interesting with the fact you get dual classes. Mage/Priest is the favorite at the moment, but you see a lot of different builds. The leveling is very fast with a max level of 50/50.

Waiting on Jumpgate Evolution as I'm personally tired of playing fantasy games. I played the original and had a lot of fun. Freelancer people are going to flock to this game.
April 30, 2009 7:10:41 PM

i like final fantasy 11 online and world of warcraft
May 1, 2009 3:00:08 PM

How's Warhammer Online doing? I talked to a kid in my class and he noted that he relogged to check out the call to arms patch and he said his sever was low and received the warning that he can get a free hop to another server. I'm on monolith, did the population of the game go down quite a bit? I haven't logged since late January and was curious. Thanks.
May 20, 2009 9:24:53 PM

Sadly the WAR population did decline. For me it was the lack of community, I have no idea why but that game was the most silent MMO I have ever been in.

I personally loved everything about the game mechanics, it just seemed at times I was playing an MMO all by myself.
May 20, 2009 9:56:33 PM

I played WoW for about 3 years after it released, my brain is now damaged and I cast random spells in RL from time to time. I don't recommend MMO's to anyone now :(  But I do recommend a heavy dose of the sun(I wish we would come up with a name for that damn thing) and face-to-face interaction with other humans!

I thinks this is my problem(not getting out in the sun I have a 4x4 ATV and mountain bike[[that I actually ride]] for that, I mean MMO's in general). I'm starting to think MMO's just aren't my thing. I like fast paced (strategic/non-strategic) action games. This is why I like AvP2, DoW/DoW II, Diablo 2, Titan Quest, cough*Hellgate *cough, CC:Generals, AOE series...well you get the point. All MMO's to me feel like a much slower more in depth Diablo 2. In fact I had WAR for the free month it came with plus a 3 month discount sub, and my main had less than 3/4 total days played...over a FOUR month timespan. Compared to people who are actually into MMO's thats nothing. And thats a MMO I really liked.
March 3, 2014 5:41:08 PM

@Topic: Yes. I'm still playing MMORPGs. I usually update/purchase new desktop components so I can play games more efficiently and I'm very particular with Video Cards. At the moment I'm trying Eclipse War since they are on CBT and my fave is Dragon Nest. Nothing beats a great display when playing MMO's.
March 5, 2014 5:18:50 PM

Guild Wars 2 was pretty good, played it for a bit but got kind of tired of the mmo genre in general.

Yes, I agree. I like Guild Wars too but like you I've been playing a lot of MMO games since I can remember. So at this point in time, I usually look for a feature that I haven't tried before--like the Transformation Card feature of Eclipse War. But I'm still looking for more awesome MMOs out there. My all time favorite would be Ragnarok Online. So much fun back then when everyone was hunting gears instead of buying them in the marketplce in-game.

I've continued to play guild wars 2 for the past year or so, but it does get repetitive. Even the battlegrounds gets boring as its all about zerg mentality and less about the smaller battles.

Lately I've been beta testing Elder Scrolls online and it has been quite fun. The game encourages exploration as that's how you find quests(far less hand holding). It's slow progress and makes you appreciate every aspect to the world around you. It has a very robust crafting system, something my wife absolutely loved. The battlegrounds are extremely fun and even though there are zergs here and there, they're not the collectives that guild wars 2 encourages but more along the lines of here's a battle to take part in, I'll get involved as well. You might find the smaller roaming havoc groups, which is even more fun. There are far more situations where 1vs2 or 1vs1 battles occur. This is definitely far closer to the DAoC days I remember. The best part I've found is there seems to be a real balance between classes I've never seen in any other game. I never once felt like I was getting the beat down by a typical (flavor of the month) class. There are just too many ways to make your character able to handle any other class, no matter what class you've chosen.

The fact that you can have a mage in heavy armor using a greatsword in battle is also a fun bonus. Classes, armor, and weapons all work independently from each other.

At first I thought the game was a bit slow, but after getting past level 10, exploring some pvp and finding additional skills lines along the way, I can see how advanced you can really make your characters out to be. I ended up preordering the physical imperial edition of the game, something I've never done before.

Ooo~ sounds really interesting. Last game I tested is Eclipse War and at the same time, I've been reading a number of good feedback for Elder scrolls. :D
