Yes, it's been around for a while, and it ain't perfect, but it's a fun game, and you can even try it out for free. In fact, I've been playing for over 18 months on a free account, and thoroughly enjoy it.

The basic game is the free bit, with the Shadowlands, Notum Wars, and Alien Invasion expansions being subscription only.

There's another expansion coming out in about 6 months or so, called Lost Eden.

Anyway, if any of you do decided to try it out, I can often be found hanging out in Borealis on one of my many toons ;-)

Your spamming now (Im also guessing your advertising, not even changing your post from the previous one)... as for AO, its total ****. One of the worse MMOs out there. There is a reason why people don't play it and they had to go free just to attract people. I beta tested the game aswell as played retail when it launched, its a horrible game. The funny thing is that EQ1 looks better then it...

Sorry if you view it as spamming - I was just answering a couple of recent posts concerning MMOs. As for advertising, well, I suppose we all are when we recommend something to someone.

I've read a bit about the complete chaos around the early life of AO. Can't say I blame you for being put off by that.

Yes, the free accounts on AO was a marketing tool. Funnily enough, it seems to have helped. I know several people how tried out the game for free, and have now upgraded. I would have done so myself but for my current RL(tm) situation, which I will not bore you with.

Anyway. AO is an option that can be tried for free. Nothing lost (except time )

To be fair magus the game did make a 180 from launch. I played it at launch and and never wanted to go back after that. Like a lot of MMO's it redeemed itself but could not recover fully from the launch state fiasco. I think it's a solid game now /shrug.

I tried playing it recently thanks to the Free Account deal (wish they would stop sending me dam emails though) and almost threwup on my keyboard... it's stilla pile of crap from what I have seen.

I played WoW for a year and am now playing CoH/CoV. I love it. It's nice not having to spend 4 hours to do one instanced mission. I have also found the community to be very friendly. Sure there are idiots here and there, but nothing that ruins the fun.

FFXI - it brought me back from a 1.5 years of WoW.

Great moments in history**

1. Man learning to make fire
2. Man learning to make and use tools
3. Me cussing out my GuildMaster in WoW and telling him "Find a new Priest loser"

anarchy online is a completly different game then the release. I played beta, retail, and also helepd create and run the official anarchy online irc server, and your thoughts on anarchy online are just a bit slightly carried away magus. From beta to black friday yes the game was pretty much ****. Post black friday funcom actually started listening to us. and almost 80% of the game was reworked according to what the player base wanted. Not to mention they are the onlly mmo develoeprs to ever work directly with the community on changes via constant direct communication, i.e. irc.

I agree. I'd say about 99% of the fun found in EvE is found via player driven interactions. Be it pirating, Corp wars that last a year or two, trading, bounty hunting on a few occasions, etc... Eve is a game driven by it's community and not the other way around.

But Warcraft has nothing to do with space... or other planets... If anything I would say Warcraft took more from LOTR and D&D then Warhammer. Yes, I know Warhammer has a medevil setting aswell but it isn't as popular as the space setting.

Ummm....Outland is on another planet and that is where WoW's Orcs orginally came from. The Burning Legion has conquered planet after planet prior to being lead to Azeroth by the Night Elves and High Elves ( aka...Blood Elves who once looked like Night Elves ). Read the lore of WoW and you'll understand how much Blizzard lifted from Warhammer.

Once Sargeras saw that his armies were amassed and ready to follow his every command, he launched his raging forces into the vastness of the Great Dark. He referred to his growing army as the Burning Legion. To this date, it is still unclear how many worlds they consumed and burned on their unholy Burning Crusade across the universe.
