Default Recommend a decent MMORPG

Well. Ive recently started playing through guildwars again. But as all of my old friends on it are no longer playing (yes, you Minako!) it's lost a lot of it's magic. But I still wanna get my teeth stuck into a decent MMO. Has anyone got any good recomendations out there? I was thinking about Warhammer Online but what about the subscription fee?

You could do Eve, a lot of us on here play, and its 15 a month like every other Mmo.

I've heard a lot of balance problems with WAR, to do with the way the RvR is structured, but you'd have to look into it.

Eve, I was obviously going to reccomend - no grinding for XP, you can take a week off and come back to a trained skill.

Not to mention, as the point of these online games, you need people playing them! We have a corp just starting out, we're now pushing our aims. We've got business deals on the table with wildspace alliances, and enemies (although to be fair, he's a bit of a joke, easily ganked).

We have people who can run all levels of missions, so you can tag along (and believe me, friendly frigates are nice to have, as us BS pilots have to use our drones for half the enemy fleets) so ship size isn't an issue.

We're mainly manufacturing/mining, but we do missions as well - and I for one want to branch into pvp when I feel ready. So we cater to all tastes.

Finally, March 10 - unexplored, dangerous, wormhole space :P

One of the attractions of eve is that it doesn't kid glove you, like WoW. You can be shot and killed at any time - it depends on the consequences to the attacker. Believe me, trying to peacefully fly through Rancer is a no go, people will destroy you.


We also have exotic dancers, and Ambulation coming Soon[sup]TM[/sup]

You have to join Gallente for exotic dancers though. Everyone else is just too uptight.

(No-one else in EVE has a ship that comes even close to the Thorax ;D )

(look it up. Be sure to find a picture.)

Well, we're all reccomending eve..... :P

We also use a Vent server when enough of us log in to use it, and regularly run fleet missions, as well as hauler ops soon, and mining ops occasionally (which we need to do more, damn hulk being 40 days away >)


Plus - Eve has a 14 day free trial, so you can always give it a go. If you do go for it we can do the buddy program which nets some free game time (do it with someone more deserving than me though :P)

WAR! I love WAR.

I know a lot of people despise PvP with a vengeance and go to all lengths to avoid it in MMOs, and I was one of those people. But WAR makes it work so magically; it makes the PvP just feel like harder PvE. :P

The Devs are very good as well. So far a lot of the imbalances and bugs (that are to be expected with an MMO that hasn't even been open for a year...) are being worked out on pretty much a weekly basis.

If I did go out and buy war - how long does it take to download all the patches after installing it?
