    Dota2 is a mmo?

    World of tanks is a great f2p mmo if you can make it through the first 5 tiers.

    I play it a lot once everything is on farm, some pretty huge changes have happened during the MoP release so I haven't been over to see them yet, but I can't wait ti get some free time to do so.

    It's not massive though. Neither is LoL or WoT.

    P2W is such a poorly defined term. Everyone seems to have a different definition. Makes debating any of this stuff awfully difficult when you can't even decide what you're debating!

    When leveling up you hardly ever meet anybody, when doing end game you are in instances of 5-10-25. What massive are you talking about. Do specify.

    Not talking about WoW?

    DoTA is two small teams in a single instance. To qualify for massive I'd expect at least one open ended area where most players can play the game together in some form.

    Just wondering what your requirements for massive in a MMO are. Because WoW, TOR, etc have nothing massive short of massive hubs with ppl doing nothing and big player base and most ppl would say that they are MMOs.

    But isn't that what the RPG in MMORPG stands for ? You role play character in world with others. When you don't role play you are put into instance with just a few ppl and this part is the same for WoW and LoL etc.

    Upcoming F2P non-P2W MMO's:
    RaiderZ...cosmetic and minor magic find (?) upgrades...this might have changed since I last played.
    Firefall...
    Wildstar...

    You're right...my bad...thought I read it was going to be F2P non-P2W but I can't find my source. So it could be P2P, B2P...or anything, really.

    lol isnt an mmorpg. its just a multiplayer game. I guarantee if they built it like a typical MMO you would not be getting everything for free.

    Upcomming F2P im looking forward to is planetside 2. Looks to be quite cool

    Yeah, isn't PS2 going to have a model similar to LoL? I might be wrong (haven't played it in some time) but you could unlock weapons by earning currency in game or you could just buy in game currency to unlock different weapons but even a starting rifle could take out someone with the latest weapons because of skill(?).

    Too bad it looks so messed up on my computer 'cause it is a lot of fun. My graphics card hates that game for some reason.

    I am not saying LoL is MMORPG ... I am saying it's MMO. It actually won a few prices for best MMORTS. Same category of games SC2 for example falls into. All those silly ppl calling SC2 MMO when it does not have persistent world.

Fun can't be quantified with straight-up data, and trying to use statistics to measure fun is a dangerous logical minefield.

    Do you think MMO automatically implies MMORPG ? That there is no other term that starts with MMO ?

    I made no mention of MMORPG. You mentioned LoL as an MMO RTS, which you said is the same category as SC2, and then proceed to say SC2 isn't because it doesn't have a persistent world, which is the same as LoL as it has no persistent world.

    Lol'd at the fact that OP claims LoL not being P2W.
