    Hello all,

    I've quit war along time ago - but this is the most active forum, so it seems appropriate to post it here.

    I'm looking for an mmo to play... What MMOs do you recommend? I liked daoc, and not war.

    Would be best if the game was appealing to people older than 10... (that's no flame, but c'mon... who likes having 4x 10 year olds in your party?).
    The game needs to have a great community...

    Hope someone can help :drink:

    Tbh I think the DAoC forums are more active than these ones.

    Errr I guess there's DarkFall Online out at the moment? I can't really think of what else there is to play right now (hence I'm still playing WAR).
    Then in beta at the moment there is Fallen Earth, Global Agenda, Mortal Online, Aion, and Champions Online so I guess you could look into one of those.

    People speak nice things about Aion, that's the game i actually got under "magnifying glass" ^^

    Yeah I've got my fingers crossed for Aion being good too, I'm just annoyed I didn't get into last weekend's beta event so I could see for myself; but apparently there will be more in the future.

    Ive played aion on the chinese servers. Only played for a couple of hours since i didnt want to ruin it. Gotta say it has alot of promise. I'll be giving it a go.

    Guide to Chinese Aion OBT | MobiusZone

    Is a guide how to setup a account and download the game. You only get 5 hours from a login but you can make as many as you want and dont have to hand over any info other than a username and password.

    edit: there is a english lang pack. You should be able to find it on google. If you cant drop me a pm.

    edit2: If you do a direct download then make sure the filename it saves as is the same as the hyperlink.

    But seriously .. who the hell wants to play some gay ass chineese shit with "warriors" with long hair, and 20 meters swords?

    Not to mention no english servers.

    i didnt see any in the last beta session but then again, they didnt allow us to play very much either. only 1 to 20 of one side, next session is the other side and only 1 to 10.

    so its kinda hard to say if theres any pvp or not before end game. i just have a feeling that the end game will be focused more on pvp then pve.

    but i'm pretty certain that there will be pvp in the earlier levels to.

    You can customise the chars like in no other MMO I’ve seen. You can make them look like luris, dwarves, humans, giants. EU servers will be out later this year. I believe around September. It’s taking so long as they are redoing the voices/humour etc for a western audience

    Poag m00?

    WoW people jumping on Aion there.

    Theres a reason its OB in china and not here.

    NCSoft NA are currently retooling the game for the western market. Adding more quests and making it less grindy.
    From the reports of players the two games are drastically different in the gameplay style, but the underlying hardware and world are the same :)

    Heres a eurogamer article on the 'West' version
    GDC: Aion: The Tower of Eternity Hands On - Page 1 // MMO /// Eurogamer - Games Reviews, News and More


    I've not played myself but aparently its a decent game from a nutty Hungarians pov :p

    As mentioned above also in Sep is coming for the western market with English Servers.

    you obviously didn't look much into the game before making that judgement

    I started following the steps but then the second link I followed to me to a different page to the example page so I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing.

    But thats wrong!

    I whined about Santas whining about Gahns whining over Santas Whine. So Moose Whined about my whine over Santas whine over Gahns whine because of santas whine.

    I didnt whine about Gahn!

    Have to say i'm enjoying twiddling around on LOTRO at the moment - quests are quite decent and actually make sense following a logical progression, and you have "insta" pvp in the form of Monster mode that you can do at any level (basically you get a premade max-level monster that you choose and control to fight against players with).

    I do still play WAR, but only when friends are on as the zergy, laggy, pve-based endgame has really started to get to me lately. Combine this with the "endgame" shutting down all the content and forcing everyone into the same zone (further raising lag and increasing those ridiculous random port-outs from the forts & keeps) and i just have 0 motivation to play when my friends aren't online!

    Is there any other endgame content rather than PvE stuff?

    Gahn you've created a space-whine-continum-hole! Those are dangerous, you get sucked into the whine and never come back! Now watch out, radio-active-whine man!

    Did anyone try out some new MMO-RTS? They are the new thing, i guess - some of them looks very promising.

    Yeah, sorry I just re-read my post and it didn't really make sense. I made an account on that first site, and then when I went to download the client it linked me to a different page to the one in the example picture.
    Is this like a trial for the chinese full release?
     
  27. civy

    civy One of Freddy's beloved

    I'm amazed how little progression there is, in the MMOs ... Since wow earned billions every day, you would think some smart investor would say: HMM! There might be money in this - let's get invested!

    But truth is, wow killed generations of MMOs to come, with its stupid pve, and non-excisting pvp (yes, I'm looking at you, Warhammer).

    Roll out old emain and daoc.

    Well when i left daoc i really enjoyed wow the new experience buzz was there, same as every other game. Its just unfortunate the buzz wears off quicker the more games you play for whatever reason.

    Even if WAR was daoc2 or had three realms i still think i couldnt be as enthusiastic as i was with the original (omg this shit pwnz) MMO
