I am trying to leave WoW and head to a Sci-Fi MMO. The problem is, there seems to only be a few out there and I have found mixed reviews on all of them. So I thought I would ask you guys which game(s) would you recommend I try?
BTW I like PvP over PvE any day.
The list I am looking at includes:
If there are any others I don't know about please let me know.
It also noted that about 2% of MMOs are scifi, and 90% are fantasy. Yay, stagnation!
Also, I couldn't shoot for shit while playing on US servers, so I hopped in an anti-air MAX and fired homing missiles at aircraft instead. :P
so yeah I'm not much help I guess but I am looking for a wow substitute as well so lemme know if theres something you find awesome and wanna team up? I'm coming up empty.
rumor has it that there's a new Star Wars mmo in the works.
Didn't AO announce that they were doing a graphics overhaul?
And I get the impression that if I want sci-fi I need EVE yes?
League of Legends (your friendly neighborhood support): PAPRPL8
Well, Perpetual sold the license to a shell company called P2. Dan Stapleton, an editor from PC gamer, speculated that Cryptic (another Bay Area dev) is going to pick it up. I think that's pretty much 100% rumor at this point though since they've declined to comment on it.
You're talking about Star Trek, not Wars.
Indeed I am. Reading comprehension...scratch that, just reading...fail. Still, pretty darn close ( as far as rumored sci fi MMO's, not the franchises ).
I got heavy into WoW (ended December '07) but before that it was 1.5 years on EvE and 1 year on Ryzom. I really enjoyed the live events of Ryzom, but it was just to much sand and not enough toys to play with unlike EvE.
A Cyberpunk Final Fantasy MMO with updated graphics would be tits though.
Also consider the jumpgate evolution is coming out in the next year or three lol. The original jumpgate was a great flying experience. The economy wasn't as great as EvE's but you actually piloted your ship and you could collide with things. In EvE you can't hide behind a roid. In JgE it will be a tactic of choice. The old game is still up and I've got a subscription but I hardly play it. I've been thinking of dumping it.
Also if any of you play EVE please check out the noob thread here and look at my build post and let me know if my build is any good, tonka!
