Does anyone here play any MMO's or MMORPG's?

I play Guild Wars and Kingdom of Loathing on and off again.

I could never get into MMOs, even if I wanted to for whatever reason. I'd lose interest after a month or so.

Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach looks pretty cool. I won't start playing though, not unless I know for sure I can play a Githzerai.

I'd play it if I had cash. Sadly I do not. But I'd play a Githyanki if they were available....or a Kobold, I love Kobolds!

Until recently, [URL=http://www.magelo.com/eq_view_profile.html?num=52089]Everquest[/URL]. Been playing since 2000 and had over 700 days online. The latest patch required the newest DirectX 9, which broke my machine, so no more EQ for me. The guild that I was in required 70% raid attendance, so I had to play 6 hours a day 5 days a week. Now I suddenly have all this free time.

A few weeks ago I posted at ANF's video game forum under"You're favorite RPG" and I said [URL=http://www.zangband.org/]"Angband"[/URL] will blow any RPG out of the water as far as gameplay goes. Then I was wondering if there was an angband ebuild in the Gentoo portage tree (I run Gentoo linux on my thinkpad), there was, I installed it, now I can't stop playing it.

I used to play Subspace/Continuum a lot. My aim was totally horrible, and I was really bad at it, so I stopped playing. Besides, spaceships shooting at each other all day got a little boring. I went on to Survival Project, GunBound, and Maple Story, but I got bored of those too. Then Flyff and Ragnarok Online, which I've also stopped playing for now. So.. at the moment, I'm not really into any MMOs. They all get boring for me and some of the players online are really annoying. So I've given up, for now! xD I haven't done any p2p. I'm cheap like that.

Guild Wars is fun....when your armor is of a decent level....lots of PvP action like 20 players per side fighting eachother or 20 on your team in a single mission. It gets crazy and chaotic which is what I love. E/R FTW!

Yeah, it does sound really fucked up. The thing is, I really enjoyed logging in and spending all those hours figuring out how to deal with new content as a guild. Plus, this is one of the uber guilds across all servers, so we regularly have 50 people online everyday (guild raids 6 days a week, but I can only make 5 days, so I'm just make the 70% minimum). And of course, over the years I've made a lot of good friends, like going to amsterdam to hang out with all the euro members of (a previous guild on the PVP server) my guild.

But, I understand, it's pretty absurd. Even now, I'm being hounded by guilds on multiple servers to keep playing. I played the druid class and on multiple druid forums I've contributed to the wealth of knowledge of how to play the class on multiple levels. I was invited to the closed beta of WoW (and it was kinda fun, the first time around during beta) and now I've had two invites to the closed beta of Vanguard (which is happening now), but my machine is too weaksauce to run the client. Honestly, I agree with EM's sentiment, I'm not going to start another MMORPG simply because I can't invest 60 hours a week to be the best in the game, and even though a lot of the more recent MMORPGs are designed so you can get ahead by playing TONS of hours every day for months and months (SWG is a good example), people who are insane and will spend every waking hour playing a game (like I did back in 2000), casual players cannot keep up.

Amen... I intentionally avoid the things due to the fact that I cannot even accomodate preexisting interests, and by my own assessments I am one of the weak-willed people who would be transformed into a soulless vegetable by MMORPGs. I vegetate enough as it is.

Bumping this ancient thread because of something LoganPayne linked.

http://www.cracked.com/blog/the-7-biggest-dick-moves-in-history-online-gaming/

I was part of that #5. The thing that the article doesn't mention, (and this was removed from the wikipedia page for some reason, eventhough I have screenshots as proof) is that the next day Sony respawned the 4 warder dragons and allowed everyone another attempt which ended in Kerafyrm's death.

:lol: That was hard.

Since you gave this thread the Frankenstein treatment, I'm obliged to show something:

[URL=http://imgur.com/4jIgu]Image[/URL]
The girl in the middle (the one with the Axe shirt) and packing a wicked-looking bow, that's my toon. She's an level 174 dex-build archer with +7 full equips; those on either side are my buddies in a casual guild.

The game -- called Ran Online -- is a free-to-play Korean job, with a modern-day high school theme (unlike Megaten, but otherwise a break from the usual traditional medieval theme) and six character classes, and of course as expected, lots of grinding, some game bugs and a player needs a party to play; in a party must tank the mobs (except for the Shaman class, who provides buffs and spells and thus have to stick at a spot for us to concentrate all the mobs and then kill them).

Problem with the game is, apart from the aforementioned grinding and bugs, large percent of players are flaming, whining kindergarten assholes who wanted everything on the silver plate. The atmosphere is more like a frathouse at full alcohol-burning throttle.

Of late, script kiddies capitalized on an item replication exploit and caused a PR shitstorm on the operator's part, banning anyone even players suspected of carrying duplicated items or over a billion in gold.

Damn tough.

Here's me, back in 2006, wet behind the ears:

Used to be playing up to 6 hours back in the day, but because I have a lot of IRL things to worry about, I can only now manage 1 or 2 hours.
