MMO Players and Games
 
In another thread it was mentioned that MMO players should create their own thread because it is a different style of game than most others. So I thought why not. We can keep track of what the planet is playing, talk about different games and maybe even set up groups and or guilds.

Which leads me to my second thought on this. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in forming a casual static group in some of these older games. Once a week or so a full group gets into a game and rolls. I was thinking EQ, only because it's old, free, and with a full group of good players, that game was amazing. But I'm open to other suggestions. I would love to hear if anyone is interested.


If no one is interested, I will edit out the second paragraph and we can just keep this as a general MMO thread.

List of people interested in a static group:

Kaplin42
Fruit Ninja
Molitoth
HomeTeam -- Won't play EQ
Jerm -- Would like to play WoW, willing to play EQ
TrickyNicky -- Not sure if interested or just suggesting Shards of Dalaya
DC Chief - Won't play EQ
Javabean -- No EQ/WoW
Buck -- Would like secret world


So by my count that is people so far. We should at least pick a game that has a larger group sizes so we can get the most people in. My buddy has been talking GW2 up to me, but tbh, I know nothing about it. Lets see if we can agree on a game. Even if we don't get everyone into the static, we will always need subs, plus we can all be guilded together.

Im an MMO player. Wouldn't touch EQ with a ten foot pole.

I do however maintain 5 level 80 characters on gw2, which is free, and would play with CPers whenever.

Jerm 04-12-2013 06:33 PM

Swore off MMOs for a while after WoW consumed me.....been thinking about getting back into it though, and with WoW.

Fruit Ninja 04-12-2013 07:15 PM

id maybe play Everquest a little. I have a 78 level Necro. Gear sucks now days, Used to be the best you can get lol. I have a few other characters of various levels like a 60 or so Berserker and im not sure what else. lol He's on Bertox

I was thinking with a static group it would be from level 1. No twinking, just earn it. But with a full group, that would be hard at all. Major quest lines, harder dungeons, with a group of people that knew what they were doing it would be awesome.

Part of the reason I was thinking of EQ was a little selfish. I love CC, and would want to play the chanter. No other game except maybe Vanguard uses CC.

Like I said though, I'm open to what ever a group wants to play. I also love to tank, so that is available in every game.

I have a 50 paladin and 50 ranger on eq project1999 server. Free.
50 disciple on vanguard. Free.
65 paladin on whatever server tribunal is now days. But I won't pay for eq play.


If you guys want to start fresh eq, WWW.project1999.org is the way to go. Its eq setup the exact way it was back then.

I would be down for this totally. But should be noted that you can play on the live EQ servers, Vox specifically for free, and no twinks on that server. Either way, it would be fun.

Any others for EQ static group. Come on, some of you must be masochists, I mean, we hang out on the planet, all of us like to be punished is some form. EQ is old, the graphics aren't great, but the challenge is awesome, and not dumbed down like every other game out there, and with a static group, we could tear it up. And seriously, if you have never camped Lower Guk for the FBSS, you don't even know what you're missing.

TrickyNicky 04-13-2013 05:37 AM

Ever played Shards of Dalaya? Its basically EQ remixed.

OmahaChief 04-13-2013 12:07 PM

If I could find the time I would love to but with good weather coming the kids will most likley keep me busy.

Same.
I played for 5yrs with a couple of rl friends & of course a ton of guild friends it also consumed us as well.
Haven't played for 3yrs now totally over it never to look back then one of my rl friends I played with says ..hey I logged onto my WoW account want me to send you the free week invite?....ugh..maybe..our characters and 7 slotted guild banks still there..ugh..my wife will kill me..so send you the invite?
I haven't said yes yet however I'm bored with Halo4 and black ops I need a game like WoW right now & he tells me its sooo different its like playing a new game.
I'd love to jump back in but can I keep it from being like before is the question.
Putting off chores to go on a raid..leveling for hours on end...farming materials so on and so forth.

Good thread idea. I use to invest a lot of time in MMOs (certainly too much) but i've been away from them a long while and i've been feeling the itch. Main thing that has kept me from getting back into one is none of my real life friends play anymore and my e-friends all moved on. Its much more enjoyable for me when you actually know the people in the guild. I may not post a lot on here but i'm on these forums almost all day. I think it'd fun to get a CP group thing going.

I'm looking foward to elder scrolls online and the new FFXIV when they come out myself. I use to play WoW. Have a few 85s but haven't touched mist of pandoria yet though. I'd be down to try WoW again. Not really interested in EQ though.

Javabean 04-15-2013 09:43 AM

I have 5 level 80 characters in GW2 and am still playing that quite a bit. I'm also in the beta for Neverwinter and will be playing that when it launches in a few weeks.

I'm not interested in playing WoW or EQ again, but if you guys want to hook up in Neverwinter, I'd be up for that. It's a cross between DDO and Star Trek Online -- kind of like DDO with action combat and user-created dungeons/missions -- and with its impending launch, it would be a good time to start a new levelling group.

I've been playing LOTRO (Lord of the Rings Online) since Aug. 2012. I've got a level 81 (almost 82) guardian named Odowulf, and a level 14 loremaster named Nedferth.

I played LotRO from 2008 until 2011, when, after a period of months away from the game I came back to find my account had been hacked and all my equipment looted.

Literally every person that I played LotRO with was hacked at some point or another, several of them multiple times. Just be aware of that...

It was a great game from early on through Moria. Unfortunately their content release schedule changed after that and rather than large scale bi-monthly releases they started releasing single maps (Lothlorien, Mirkwood, that's as far as I got). I found that it just wasn't enough to keep me interested (my favorite part of the game was the story progression, so adding raids really did nothing for me). Not coincidentally I think, they went free-to-play about that time, and while it was good for the survival of the game, the general quality of the server population seemed to plummet (which was my initial and ongoing fear with my current game, swtor).

It's not a bad game, I just don't see myself ever playing it again, especially not after a year and a half in swtor (which just came out with a pretty amazing small expansion, btw). I logged into LotRO a couple months back just for shits and giggles, and it just seemed so dated to me.

But...I hope you guys continue to enjoy it. I played it for literally years, and aside from the hack (and Turbine CS's refusal to replace anything I lost) I have nothing but fond memories.
