    Also, this thread is crazy. They're all different, with pros and cons. Play what you like, there isn't one "BEST MMO"
    That game had so much ruined potential.

    Oh yeah, there were a lot of big missteps in a lot of different areas. It had a lot of diamonds in the rough though.

    Play them all or play one that you enjoy more than the rest. Iunno, show love to what you love.
    Very true, there isn't a best MMO they all have their pros and cons

    Except Wildstar of course which was the best MMO with no cons and only pros.

    The devs were even altruistic and generous enough to make it free to play for the plebs, yet it was still shut down.

    Rift was great before it got ruined. One of my favorite iterations of a bard in any MMO.

    I know right, if they had only listened and looked at how the market was changing it would have been fantastic.
    Wildstar vs WoW during Classic or TBC now that would have been a solid match between properties but alas.
    I still miss my homicidal psychotic sociopathic furball.

    God forbid someone actually speak up about how something in the game isnt nearly as bad as the people with blizzard hateboners make it out to be. That shit will get you threats in your inbox (and reporting it does fuck all).
    Yeah...luckily as somebody who likes to voice how he enjoys WoW never got any threats. Jesus...what is wrong with ppl who do this hit over a game.

    Probably a lot is wrong with them. Some cannot even be happy with the fact that we got two versions of WoW to play. They must play the "classic will kill retail" and "classic will fail" cards. Despicable indeed.

    Too bad ...it looked promising. Wonder why it didn't catch on with all the positives..not even not catch on, but actually be shut down

    I, and probably many others, thought the world/setting was a major turn-off. Also if we are real and look at the market then it becomes obvious that only the games backed by large IPs tend to survive and rise to the top. In that regard the game was pretty much doomed from the start. Only expcetion are games that start out with completely different business models like GW.

    DAOC (PvP)
    Warhammer Online (PvP and world PvE)
    FF14 (accessibility and player agency)
    SWTOR (participation trophy)

    But ultimately WoW is still King. Hell it's been out for so long it's trying to be more like it's old self.
    wait what?how are all those mmos just trying to be wow?eso is extremly different,so is gw2,the only real wow copy is rift,but its mostly a wotlk era copy

    Tbh, since the recent nostalgia craze is running rampart but I just shudder at the thought of playing vanilla again, I started to reminiscene about RO. If it weren't for the fact that it's such a grindy game that later drifted a bit too much into the emporium/empyrium/emp..something (?) war stuff for my taste I would actually be itching to play it again. This time certainly not as a priest through.. fuck that shit. Not gonne spend another couple hundret hours lighting up undeads and dark creatures.. I still cringe whenever I think about pyramids and ancient mummies pop up in my head.

    hmm i cant tell if this is someone trying to be an extremly obvious troll or a subtle one,for people who dont know wildstar had one of the worst dev teams of any triple A mmo's,they completly droped the ball with wildstar,plenty of info online about them talking about the nighmare that whent on inside with the team

    Objectively. If wildstar was the best mmo people would have played it. The graphics where to childish for me and mines tastes

    The mmo market is in the west is very different then the mmo market in the east.
    The mmo market in the west is slightly more sqewed towards realistic looking mmo's and mmo's build upon existing lore heavy franchises.

    Not really seeing the correlation of the big and heavy hitters tbh

    RO went full normie and mindlessly grinding mobs isnt the only way to level up now, you have the eden group who gives you quest to either kill x amount of mobs or gather materials, and you also get some basic gear at certain levels

    Wildstar problem was, they went full retard with the "hardcore" stuff and big surpirse, guilds had troubles getting people if someone left/was poached because NOT everyone was as hardcore as they thought

    That was one problem. Another was that just not many people played it. It topped at around 160k at the end of 2015. Many people where pushed away by the more japanese inspired races and tech oriented feel of the world. IE less realistic.

    Best advice for a western audience would be medieval like setting with magic and humanoid races.

    They relaunched it as Secret World Legends. Not sure how it is different.

    If they rolled the hardcore back and made it more casual somehow. I bet that it would be popular and people would play it.

    People never really started playing it. The feel and look of the game just wasnt in peoples tastes. Otherwise it would have had more players at some point in its cycle
