I love games with mail systems.
I created a gift giving character with a different name than my characters and any time I saw someone helping another player, be it on in town, on the server chat or on the forums, I would send the person who helped out a gift for being helpful and nice to other players.
Shit was so fun.

God damn SOA, teaching people that it's cool to play MMO's solo.
It does feel pretty badass to roll up and solo a boss though, especially when there's another player/party around.
>not being a solo player strong enough to beat bosses by yourself.
That's maybe the one single thing I enjoyed about GW2.
If you had a proper skillset and knew your shit you could solo those random event bosses that players always grouped up for because they'd die solo.
Still a shitty game though.

That little greentext was about another game, but when they added the GE into Runescape, I actually got about two dozen people to run back and forth from that clothing shop to where I was lurking in the GE. They'd pay like 9 gold for the cape, I'd pay them 20, then go and sell the capes three feet away from where I was waiting for 100.

EVE isn't about grinding isk (like most MMOs).
it takes a lot of time and practice to "progress" in eve, training skills up, getting familiar with the PVP system and such.
isk is just a tool to accomplish your goals, replace lost ships, not get stressed out when you get blown the fuck up etc....

You're the faggotier of us two.
How do you not get burned out of a game where there's no consequences to your actions?
> not get stressed out when you get blown the fuck up
This right here.
ISK also relates to progression to some extent.

It went full P2W, not just the simple you-can-pay-for-cash-boosts kind but literally whoever spent the most on pilot points or LF4s or whatever shit they added won. And it wasn't cheap or feasible to get elite items, even if you grinded on aliens for hours you probably couldn't afford 1 laser let alone 15-31 of them, so you were kinda forced to pay for a decent build. Then everyone started using bots to farm cash, everyone got mad at seeing those useless hacks making free cash on every map and it all went to complete shit from there

Well fuck you then. When I used to do this, I would friend request somebody and help them later on if they didn't start begging.
No consequences to your actions? You'll lose the ship and have to replace it from your own wallet...
It's better to go out and pvp when a few mil loss per ship doesn't put a dent in your wallet, and you don't have to worry about going broke because you loose a fight.
I'd prefer that over running around doing mindless missions for months just to grind ISK.
That's not really progression, it might have been in other MMOs but eve is a bit different.

>play game with co-op
There's this MMO I have played for years, and every few months I will go on just to fuck around for a few hours and then log off.
There's this open, any-level PvP zone called training grounds that people just chill in all day and it's the funniest thing seeing a low level come in and try to attack you or some other high level, and they do 5 damage. Always makes me laugh.
>Guild full of female High Priests
>they basically act as the guild's heal/buff/warp slaves at all times
>Constantly fantasize about fucking the different HPs in the guild
Female HP truly was the most sexual of any character class in an MMO.
I used to get on Flyff and purposefully run around low-level areas to aggro bosses or give items to the guys either nearing or just coming out of getting a class. Last time I ran into a level 20 acrobat and gave her some level 30 set armor I never used, as well as a Bow of Accuracy +1 I had.
The person was so nice and thankful I just felt so happy.
Getting close to optimal conditions.
Can you get high level gear that LOOKS low level, or wear some as social/cosmetic over high level items?
>Try to talk to someone in an MMO
>No one talks to anyone
What the fuck happened to MMOs? the community in every single one has turned to shit.
I have given people stuff that you could sell for real money because I have built up such an absurd on in-game currency over the years, if they were cool enough.
Yeah, there's actually an entire equip for costume items over every slot(besides weapons and jewelery).
Fucking dungeon finders man. Dead serious. Used to be you had to actually talk to people to build up a community so you could progress through the game, but now all you do is hit a "Find Party" button and get warped to an instanced dungeon with peeps that may or may not be on your server.
Thank goodness BDO is doing away with that shit.
If possible, I just love to have low-level stuff on over the top of your actual gear, then just wait until some scrub attacks you and go:
>"You fucked up."
What game is this, by the way?
I have a huge problem with talking with people on games like Vindictus. I really don't know why, but whenever I start out I have massive anxiety about talking with anyone. Then when I get somewhat mid-ish in level or equipment I feel better.
If you want to be useful please do the human race a service by removing your gene pool from it
It's a really shitty old KMMO called Rose Online. The only reason I ever go on is because I never did that thing everyone likes to do when they quit an MMO(give away all their gear and money).
So I just go on every once in a blue moon to chat with my old clanmates, and fuck around with my characters.
Guilds are even that shitty too.

Hell, I think this is the only reason I still play MMO's. I need some social interaction in my life, I'd probably have died from loneliness by now if it wasn't for MMO's, or at least gone crazy.
I used to do functionally the same thing in the DJB till both my apprentices bailed. Don't know what the fuck happened to Fen, but at least Navrez had the courtesy to apologize and explain.

That tickled my chuuni bone
It's how the Antispirals did stuff
My experience in Guild Wars was made absolutely epic by a guy who did something similar.
Instead of items and such he gave me tips and endured my idiotic questions about the game and when I was ready for it even took me in to the guild he was an officer in.
I would've dropped the game if it wasn't for this guy.
We lost touch a long time ago but I still think about him. That guy was awesome.
I love you.
>Give free money and items to newbies in MMOs
>Help them lvl up
>These faggots go away and never give a shit about you
That's pretty fucking
rad actually holy shit.
Maybe they meant "Dodge" like a variation of missing when you attack or something.
That's why I never gave money to beggars, rather I opted to help someone level or something.
Ahhhh that was the best. Call me a giant faggot all you want but I felt like such a badass doing that. Waltz up in my event costume you could only get 7 years ago, full heal them and then do 7000 damage in one regular hit from my crazy ornate wand. Probably blew their mind.

Because I started dating her when I first started /fit/ and after a few months I started noticing that as I was progressing, she was regressing, and was also starting to have insane jealousy issues. I eventually realized I would do better, and I did a good amount of times.
Either keep healing or leave em. If they're ungrateful faggots then heal them until they learn or leave, or you just leave and find someone else to heal.
What games nowadays allow a proper healer and support character anyways? Most of the time they seem to be like a paladin or some fighter combo.

I would like to play with you guys. We had a /vg/ guild on Ragnarok 2 that was a blast. We went on an ethnic clearing conquest in the PvP conquest area and took on several big name guilds with like 15 people and usually upwards of 30-40 on the other side.
And we'd win.
>Be a drama whore
It seems like whenever you join a server (in any game, really) there's always that guy everybody knows. It's not because he's good at the game, or because he's nice to everybody.
It's because he's a self centered shitbag who has to be the center of attention at all times. He probably has some sort of special title, like DONATOR in big flaming letters, and there's always somebody sucking up to him, usually several people competing for his attention.
If you're playing an FPS with server wide voice, he will be conducting all communication through this, even if everybody else is typing in chat.
>start playing a new MMO with friends
>zoom ahead because playing at their pace is slow and I hate it
>always the strongest, most experienced and richest
>can't play with them because I'm so far ahead
I used to do this.
For example in RIFT there's these neon lights you can use. I would stack up on about 200 of them. Hop on a bear mount and I was the Defiant Police. I had macros to signal sirens "REEERO REEEEEROOO" and I would press keys to alternate between using red and blue neon lights.
I'd do this while chasing down people who had PvP active. It was great.
Because he was a bro in Vanilla/BC and knew how to keep drunk idiots scattered in various netcafes around the state organized.
The scrutinized raiding and upkeep was only during the first month or so of progression, then it went to pure comical challenges of running PUGs for the rest of the tier.
10 years later and I STILL can't fix it.

Cheer up, anon. It takes multiple committed people to make a guild work. People motivate eachother and make eachother want to stay online and to go do shit.
You got a steam or anything like that? Let's make it happen.
I played WURM for a few months.
If that game cost a little less it would consume my life.
Build a house and train some skills to then make something of yourself.
Fucking kingdom warfare with a struggle to be king of your server while waging war the whole time.

Helping (especially in MMO's) just attracts clingy retards that will never git gud, or start to think you're in some weird ERP relationship.
Some of the best guys I've met were trolls who didn't give a shit about internet bushido bullshit and just wanted to have fun. Usually at other's expense.

It's pretty goddamn cancerous. Kids use server shouting to profess e-love and e-drama.
I'd check out /vg/ to see what MMO generals have the most activity and join in. Except for PSO2. The game is fun but the general is a bunch of guys pretending to be girls for ERP.
It's even better when they aren't newbies anymore. I remember when they released the vendor on the sunwell island and I just stood on him with my fat elekk and people kept rightclicking me and got destroyed by guards. Shit was hilarious, to bad I got banned after a few hours
Demonbane is bigger AND more powerful
Holy shit I would've loved that at the start. Eve is not about earning things. I'm a 06 pilot and the last time I was subbed I was in IRC. Buying loads of ships was a fucking nightmare because if you lost a system or were told to get out due to internal politics you had to move every last damn one of them. So buying shit shouldn't have been your priority.
I took up the habit of only ever having a PvP ship and a PvE ship. A marauder and maybe something like a HAC or Dictor. It was much better.
Trust me, man. You got it good. Should've just bought some cheap PvP ships and enjoyed learning to your heart's content. The 06-09 grind was fucking suffering. When you saw battleships fielded you knew something BIG was going down. Now you get enough to build a BS in a couple of days as a fresh account. It's sad.

A friend and I used to have a routine in Lineage 2. I had played through the beta, and you got to keep your open toon, so week one I was in the 40s. Helped a friend power-level her human priestess since I was a tank

Best part was when people would try to team up, or someone level appropriate would show up so it was an actual fight and that helpless priest they were trying to save was tossing me heals.

Man I really hope that one doesn't turn out to be shit too. It's the only MMO i'm even looking forward to anymore, and really i'm just cautiously optimistic.
So far it looks great but if this shit flops i'm just giving up.

I have been doing this off and on since 2011, so far I've had success with four girls.
One of them is married.
Teach me your ways, sempai.
I used to make maybe 35-40m every 20 minute tick back in drone space.
This equated to more or less 110 million an hour. If I went solid for 9 hours I would make one billion isk. Yet you make perhaps 1.5b~ in a few hours, 3-4.
You're probably getting twice what I'm getting and doing it in half the time. ;~;
I tried some sites after the analyser updates and it was shit. 10 minutes of effort for literally 1000 isk.

Never help other people in MMORPGs.
Do guilds for people who are good at video games exist?
I like to do endgame stuff, but I'm sick of all these tryhard raid schedule guilds that take an eternity to learn fights. I mean am I crazy or are MMOs really fucking easy? Why do retards treat raiding like a job that you have to fucking schedule twice a week when it's just dungeon with more people.
>That niggerfaggot that would always hang around the townsquares or cities asking for money and smokes because his house got "banned, hacked or deleted"
Meant to post a pic. This is the character she tried to rape repeatedly.

I guess so. It's helped me be more sociable in real life.
She's married but its an open relationship. She has a couple other guys she visits for sex, and her husband does the same.

People are so nice, I try to pass it on as often as I'm able or in situations where I can't come off as too autistic.
>She's married but its an open relationship. She has a couple other guys she visits for sex, and her husband does the same.
This stuff has always weirded me out. I suppose I'm too closed minded, though.
Do you think an open marriage has a higher expected lifetime than a traditional closed marriage?

I'd rather just play on my own at that point.
But I play MMOs on my own. I really like exploring and pretending I'm on my own little adventure. Mabi was perfect for this, and I got pissed when I hit dungeons that required a party.
Yes. Caution with mmo bitches. 90% of them are literal sluts. We had this one girl in our RIFT guild on voice comms who used to get drunk real easy and she'd flirt with fucking everyone and she used to shit talk her boyfriend who was in the very same guild while he was out of the house or whatever.
She ended up turning around and saying all sorts of bad shit about this scottish guy behind his back. Personal health troubles. He was a tough cunt though. Wouldn't let people know he was upset. Just agreed with what she said and left the game.
And then the same cunt took 10 of our members and created another guild.
We recovered but damn. Fuck you, Linqy. Cunt.

I'm him as a black muscular dude. Who's Scottish. Doesn't like talking about his work, but it's pretty high speed low drag.
What exactly did she say about him?
>Walking around with my guildies on WoW as one of the few Gnomes on the server
>Random level 85 Gnome runs up to me and opens a trade
>Gives me a bunch of rare companions

>Things get lewd in the voice and I can't stop laughing because they actually think I'm a female
Who actually assumes a female character is being played by a female without any confirmation?
You should have built up a band of friends to raid with after they soured to their first taste of treadmill progression.
The real difficulties with MMO PVE and raid encounters are exactly as you described, retard wrangling and harassing to just show up is the name of the game, and it's even harder nowadays for subscription mmos to keep a playerbase around so it's even less likely you end up around trusted people.
Modern MMOs are designed around lockouts to stagger progression.
When you've cleared your progression content for the week/some arbitrary period, you start running out of things to do fast.
People who don't care enough to take random players past face value
If I play a game and there's a big buff dude I always just assume the player is a big buff dude too, no reason not to, its not like we're friends or anything.
>tfw i could have been hitting on women and skeletons all this time
Acting nice isn't a tell. Emotes are probably a better judge, but 80% of the time that's just your average fag looking to ERP, especially if it's :3.
The 100% deadsure way to tell is if they describe something with adjective!noun. I have never seen a man type that, ever.
I was only 5 fucking levels above him you autistic. He still freaked because I was progressing quests faster. I tried to slow down for him and he refused to keep up.
What am I to do? Stop playing entirely until he feels in the mood?
>tfw I get complimented for my positive nature and good manners in groups/raids
>tfw I'm also the tank
>keep a stock of cheap tf2 hats to give to random pub noobs
Oh she was saying shit like how he was trying to flirt back with him and how laughable she considered it because "his genes are fucked and uncompatible with mine" and that there was no way she'd consider dating him.
She was leading him on hard for kicks. Simultaenously, she hated her boyfriend and made a point of it.
>Oh she was saying shit like how he was trying to flirt back with him and how laughable she considered it because "his genes are fucked and uncompatible with mine" and that there was no way she'd consider dating him.
So just an all around cunt. Great.
I'm a skeleton, and I've always found playing as an over-the-top JoJo/Kenshiro/Muscle Wizard-looking motherfucker to be the most entertaining. Someone not necessarily with high int, but always on the side of JUSTICE.
That or actual skeletons, if possible.
If neither are available I just stick with rogue/thief characters.
I know this feel. Ragnarok 2. That MMO nose dived in population too. Some random ass dude out of the blue notices me in the PvP area and calls my name out. "You still play, X?".
I was known for being one of the best kiters in the game as a Wizard, which was a gimped class and outperformed hard by Sorcs. But I found a balance that worked in PvP. I'd take on like 5 people at once and win.
>tfw it wasn't all for nothing
>Always used to play as big buff black dudes with massive 'fros

Fuck you life, why'd you make me grow up 'n shit.
Semi-relevant, something from /tg/.
>tfw I made these two threads and everyone is posting in them.
Is this what being popular feels like? Dammit I should've posted with my trip on.
Sickening still though isn't it?
Poor guy. He actually left first to join her guild first. I had to break the news to him. That news caused him to quit.
Better I tell him so he can cut and run rather than find it out in a few months time and be devastated over it, right?
>Better I tell him so he can cut and run rather than find it out in a few months time and be devastated over it, right?
I would definitely want to be told. As long as you did it to save a bro, and not to spite a bitch, it was the right decision.

But it's looking like we've more than two people interested.
Gimme an add. Looking for other things to play other than assfaggots. Game gets annoying sometimes.
>randomly start playing WoW again a while back
>everybody treats me with a shitload of respect because i have the celestial defender title
MMOs are good for feeling important when you're really just a loser in real life.
Oh I'd chuck it down to 2008 summer. Not even joking, man. That fucking day was the day when memes and all sorts of shit saw a rocket in usage. Couldn't say fucking anything to anyone without some autist spamming u mad and a hundred joining in.
>Get either a really cool set/Vanity item

But that's a good thing. I have never been able to find someone like that, though. I'd only ever be able to be in a relationship with someone who isn't emotional.
