ITT: MMOs only you've played
Anyone remember when Atlus tried to make an MMO?
It pretty Mich faded into oblivion. You can't even find it on google images
What the fuck, are you even familiar in the slightest with EQOA?
>Getting excited for an MMO.
Where have you been for the last 10 years?
I don't know why I played this piece of shit
Redmoon Online was the first MMO I bothered trying out.
Don't think it lasted once it went pay, as it wasn't really that good.
The midi music was pretty catchy though.
this game was pretty badass, but it died quick
An atmospheric MMo with a really good combat system, destroyed by the publisher, because they invested more money in marketing their f2p title.
Heroes of Three Kingdoms was a prime example of how Perfect World Entertainment is pure evil and/or incompetent.
>launch english beta
>launch FUCKING CASH SHOP DURING BETA
>have english beta be years behind the JP/KR version
>sink the game before it even reaches the 'retail' stage
>cash shop stuff you stupidly bought? TOO BAD SO SOWWY
Game wasn't that good anyway, I just wanted to play something about the 3K era.
endless online was great
vult-r knew shit about his own game though
I only like indie ones, it's made in Unity by like 1 or 2 people, and it's very well optimized for Unity.
Mainly because it's not levels, so I can introduce my friends later down the line and level my skills with them.
Personal loli game, it was pretty bad. But hey, getting your own loli pet who fights with you was pretty cool i guess.
Man. I always remade accounts to play this on its 14 day free trial or whatever. I don't even know if it's still around.
>Dat rotating skill bar
>Dat character customization
>World that actually felt alive
Rest in piece Chronicles of Spellborn.
I'll never forget this one, it's damn shame.
Did anyone play Alganon?
Just wondering if anyone was stupid enough to try to play something that ripped assets directly from WoW (Image not entirely related, they just copied that one, but one of the races in the game had a hairstyle that was directly ported from Blood Elves in WoW.)
Aika died to botters after 2-3 months, but it was neat to say the least.
RYL Happens to be one my favorites, the best you'll find now is probably some really bad Private servers for it.
No idea how many people played FlyFF, but it was a mmo I use to enjoy
Oh god Flyff, I had a friend that was really into that game. I remember he brought his laptop over to my house one night and played nothing but that game. Then left it on while we slept to level up his skills or something.
Played the shit out of Runes of Magic, but then end game kept relying on using cash shop to even progress.
Best mmo ever.
I played the first time because my friend made me to it, I waited for a shitty game, instead I got four years of good memories with friends I will never met again.
true. That and most of the Mods on were retarded. I remember getting banned for a day because I wanted to know the price of something and nobody had it listed on the sales board because the sales board consisted of "looking 4 a slave. wil pay 100 gld pr hour. Make sure ur nekd <333"
Damn, I still have a screenshot of my rune mage around.
I played it from the alpha version to a few years or so of retail.
Alpha version had so many fun memories because the maps were mostly completely different and the dodge rate had no cap.
>leading the entire pyramid's supply of skeleton soldiers to the entrance to murder all the afk people since they could never ever hit you.
SEED Online, it was a weird game without combat, you and everyone else were on a station stranded on a planet, and you had to coordinate your jobs to try rebuilding parts of the station over time, with a bunch of dumb objectives that were "LET'S TRY TO GET TO THE SPACE STATION IN ORBIT" or "SALVAGE THE MOTHERFUCKING SHIP" or some core drill shit building, skills worked like EVE in that you learned them while asleep in a tube, and the major conflicts to keep the game from going completely chatroom was parts of the station would fall apart over time and you needed to keep things in repair or else shit would go bad and passage ways would break down.
It didn't last even a year after coming out, they didn't market it properly and their publisher pulled funding in about 6 months.
I've never seen it mentioned anywhere ever, but it got good reviews and my friends and I loved it.
I'm sure there's at least one other person who can recognize this thing...
>So many adventures with friends
>Still think about it frequently
>Those days are gone
does this game even still exist
Fuck the queus, but damn this game was fun as hell despite the grind.
>Visual Character customization detached from stats and allowed asymmetric armor
It was glorious, wearing whatever the fuck you wanted.
You can tell just by looking at my mage that asymmetrical armor is basically my fetish.
I bet no motherfucker here has played Secrets of Asura.... or was it Ashura?
Jesus that game is so obscure and probably long dead now that I can't even find a picture for it or any info at all.
So, did anyone here play Planeshift aka that MMO that never fucking finished?
Also lol forumwarz
9dragons? Fuck that brings back memories.
It's a good thing I can't even remember the fuckers that hosted it, because they took Chronicles of Spellborn and bunch of other games with them as well and that makes me mad as all hell.
Though I think someone picked up 9dragons after them and it's probably still around.
It was a shitty game but I liked the graphics and music
Pretty sure only 2 other fucks form /v/ play this game
Titties, titties and cash shop.
SIlkroad Online and Atlanica Online
I don't know a single other person who played this
My characters are all still there on the servers. Apparently some of the stuff I had when I first played(event costumes) are worth trillions of the ingame currency.
Anyone ever play Wonderland Online?
It was an MMO that played like a classic RPG. You could choose your element like fire, water, earth , etc. It was pretty fun but hard as hell.
Trickster has a surprisingly cozy atmosphere.
It's a shame I could never get anyone to play it with me.
Didn't much like associating with the people around the game either because they were usually a little embarrassing.
Game is called infantry.
Anyone else play this shitty Korean MMO?
Ha, nah, it's the legs on her stuffed...carrot person? I don't know how else to describe it
The game had fucking beautiful artwork, but I vaguely remembering it playing very weirdly. It's been so long I actually don't remember why I stopped playing
And then there's this underage faggot.
How does it feel to be so young? The game came out the same year as WoW, before it built any traction whatsoever. The whole goal was to try and expand the EQ franchise to the consoles before other companies took the lead
It didn't end well
this. I started playing Aion again since GW2 and WoW became boring for me. It's starting again, my 15-16 years old self doing grindy quests for tiny amount of coin is coming back with a veangance
>Found out LaTale had a Slayers collab
>Pokota pet that is more useless than himself
>Lina and Gourry costumes look sloppy and cheap compared to everything else in the game
....shit, I fucked up. I read MMO and my brain said RPG
I've played a bit of Silkroad Online many years ago.
Probably the most grindy and boring game I've played thus far.
And despite the game being mind-numbingly boring the servers were always at capacity making it a pain to log in.
I've never met an internetfolk that played this. My friend group was super fucking deep into it as it was our first mmo.
This might be one of my favorite games ever.
Why do i continue to play aruarose when it's become shit and trash...i miss 2007 i hate instance system. Fuck matt for ruing my game and making it take 6 months to get one piece of final gear and it's luck based cunt boxes filled with shit items. Fuck you matt fuck you all.
Me Me Me
Is it still around? Haven't heard anything about it for quite some time. I guess it's way too "edgy" for today's players.
It feels strange to recognize almost all the games posted here.
I played Kabod Online once. It was the precursor to Scarlet Blade, only the titties were low-res textures and the game was even worse. I don't think it ever made it past beta.
>tfw in alpha and beta test
>played the fuck out of it
>igg just takes it offline for no reason
fuck igg, this game had some fucking style to it and i loved it
This game was awesome as all hell until they decided to cash shop it into the ground
>That moment when at barely level 15 the game got legitimately difficult and tricky, yet rewarding
God I miss mixing up tactics with my three-slut team.
No, because I always soloed MMO's
For some reason I've always neglected the Multiplayer in video games
>never talk to anyone in MMORPGs
>not part of any social media where I could meet people to play vidya with
unless it's some kind of Multiplayer where I can meet people and fuck shit up right away with randoms like Monster Hunter then it's not that appealing
The GMs who manage the other games the publisher run were extremely skeptical about localizing C21 and knew it was going to shut down.
>tfw you joined the Lion's faction because of the seiyuu and lion in general
It was so dead.
This and that Chrono Gate or whatever it was, which was so hilariously mismanaged that their beta weekend didn't even work, as whoever was running it for america fucked up royally, and within a month past that squareenix pretty much said "This isn't gonna work, take it down"
I remember trying to figure out a way to download this without my parents finding out as a kid
last I remember, they changed the name to requiem memento mori or some shit, and I haven't heard of it since
greed of publisher and incontinence to deal with script kiddies killed the fuck of this game for me
I still play it once a week to remember the good community from back in the day and some guy named HolyGodess always recognizes me Piroman4e will never EVER reach pro rank ;_;
>tfw no other mmo has a faction that lets you go complete anonymous and just gank the shit out of people
Your name even showed up the same as all the other generic mobs the other faction grinded to level up
RIP Warhammer Online
that shit had the greatest PvP
too bad the PvE was really shit
it's the only mmo I've played that had better combat than WoW (even though it pretty much ripped it off)
does being? I had to steal Korean super balls deep in the first build of RO2 count? I had to steal Korean Social Security Numbers to simply remain playing
Also this one. It was a blatant WoW clone but somehow, just SOMEHOW, they actually had a chance to compete with them (at least internationally). Then they decided to ramp up the cash shop and kill themselves. I still chuckle at the interviews and blog posts from various devs of the game that flat out admit that the cash shop move ultimately ruined their foothold.
this is probably the best game i will ever have played, too bad its gone forever
Not really the same type of MMO but did anyone play this?
I still do from time to time, the character separation update made playing a pain though.
YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE IS GONE!?
FUCK I'M STILL MAD GOD DAMN KOREAN JEWS
I played Fairyland Online. I just remember the name, I never remembered what I did in the game. Pretty obscure game, never heard anyone talk about it ever.
On a sidenote: is Tibia still alive or anything? It's probably infested with BR, but I wanted to try it out since I never played it during its heyday. I was busy playing Runescape.
>So, did anyone here play Planeshift aka that MMO that never fucking finished?
That was the one that was open-source, right? Fuck, I remember playing that back in '05. Three areas, fuck-all else to do but roleplay.
guarantee nobody has played scions of fate
The only reason I picked this up for a while was because of some
Swedish Youtube fag who was popular around the 2006-2008 years.
>get to max level
>still want to play but I feel like I already beat it
>urge to delete characters rising to experience the game again from scratch
I remember I played Scions of Fate back in the day and there were these chest items that you would open up that typically gave health/mana potions, with a very rare chance of giving you a ring/necklace that were typically worth a lot of money. Somehow I ended up with a bugged account and literally every chest I opened would give me a rare item, made a fucking killing off that until one of the GMs caught onto me and banned me (for their own fucking bug, fuck you GM Gool)
Where my Rappelz niggas at?
Salamander server representing.
Endless Online, it's still up and is still in Alpha. I still have all of my screenshots from 8 years ago, this is one of them.
A lot of the endgame involved hot-swapping gear for stat bonuses so you could equip better gear that had outrageous stat reqs.
30 equip slots, 220 levels, 40 perks, 30 alien perks.
Thank god you had to do tons of math and waiting to equip shit, because there was barely anything to do.
Posting again because FUCK I'm still upset. 11 god damn years ago and I'm still fuming about this game. It was my absolute favorite online game to play.
I'm probably the only who played this.
Pic related: Bug in the closed beta that caused people's head to float
Addictive as fuck, and you could even get married.
First and Last MMO I played. My dad wouldn't pay the $14.99/month subscription after the first 2 months (thank God I have a responsible dad), otherwise I would have failed high school.
[spolier]I dont know what i was thinking[/spoiler]
I have Cruise and some of the YFL members on
facebook and skype
fuck me if I can remember them all
I think I was most known, if I can call it that, on Braveheart, Trixstah, Apocalyptica, and I sold Apocalyptica for some shit like xxorckingxx or something
The only person from YFL I remember other than Cruise was Joebo or whatever his name is
>CTRL+F "Meridian 59"
wow, I played that
The community is so tightly knit and small that if you're a newcomer and you start playing, other players will start basing events around you in order to keep you playing because they're so lonely
>looks like they ripped off endless online
Honestly, I think it's made by the same company.
This anime hairstyle was exactly my hairstyle in Dark Ages.
But I think DA came first (1999) and Endless Online was 2004.
Was actually prominent enough at one point to be invited to skype call with devs for this one with a few other guys.
I have Joe too. It sucks that we lost contact with the other members though.
This was so fucking fun. The crafting, the battles. Felt so much like a real war, at times.
I tried out spiral knights but I couldn't get into it at all. As for puzzle pirates, I'll always remember it as being one of the only games I've seen where you could actually crew a ship with dozens of people and have them all doing things, for hours sometimes.
Either I was the only one, or it's more popular than I think.
Man, I remember playing that game just because of the artstyle and it was free. That dragon guy was sort of fun to play as, and pretty much every female class was too damn cute.
Isn't this game a sandbox?
This game made me feel like I was going on adventures while playing bejeweled, it was pretty fun.
None of you guys played Ferentus
Yeah, I think that one is still around but under a different name. Dragon Saga I think?
Anyways, I played that until I reached like a level 30 or 40 and then the game just required a ridiculous amount of grinding the same stage over and over again so I just stopped playing
still havent found anyone else who played this comfy game
I remember playing a bunch of shitty mmos made in a weird-ass engine called byond with my brother and my cousin when we were younger.
To be honest, the best part about spiral knights is the art and the music. So damn cozy.
The gameplay isn't all that amazing, but it got better in the last few years. Now we have a dash/dodge move, a shield charge (that can stun enemies) and pets (that act more like special skillsets rather than actual pets).
Haven't played it in a while since the endgame is stale as fuck, especially if you don't have money to go into the shadow lairs.
>Mass Multyplayer Onlinegames only you've played
Now, this is just getting ridicoulus.
>This game was deleted off the face of the internet so hard the only links to it are all dead links and you have to dig around the company's outdated website to find mention of it ever being a thing
This game was amazing until the koreans killed it with the p2w cash shop to earn a few more korea dollars from it.
way before steam faggotry
>ctrl+f mu online
I WANT EVERYONE TO LEAVE
I know I'm not the only one, but even when it was popular this game didn't seem really hugely populated.
Where my Dragonica/Dragon Saga niggas at?
Lunia was FoTM on /v/ for a while, not sure if it still exists
Let me think:
Cabal Online I never see mentioned, as well as this old ass bastard I can never remember the name of, but it was this crappy generic 2d isometric MMO with an anime aesthetic. It was awful, but I can never remember its name.
>people actually play and defend this
I've played this , actually. Though what I really mean is, my friend ran me through oodles of content and I had no fucking idea what was going on, so I never picked it up again.
>Remembers this used to be fun
>Community a shit
>Meta a shit
>Aeria support lacking
>Had cool friends tho
Fuck Aeria Games.
I would be legitimately surprised if anyone else here played this piece of shit.
races were animals and golems yeah. was in beta for about 2 years before they died off. 2 companies picked it up and died, one after the other.
yeah it wasn't the best graphically, but what they packed in was pretty insane. i think there were around 3000 unique armor pieces and around 60 sets, all could be dyed and refashioned so you could look however you wanted. plus the community was pretty small and aside from like 3 hardcore retards everyone was in it to help each other.
Conquer Online was such an awful game. Why did I play it for so long? The words noop, kos omak, a7a, and hhhhhhhhhhhhh will forever be burned into my memory. Thanks egyptians.
Was actually pretty fun until they went full on fucking jew by locking weapon upgrades behind a pay wall.
Metin2. Had Dynasty Warriors-like combat in where your autoattacks and skills could hit multiple enemies that were caught in your animation's swing.
>mfw high level fem mage armor increased chest size
I'm pretty sure servers in this game could only hol like 30 people
The Realm Online.
Apparently some ~100 people still play it for $7 a month.
I once had a really smart idea to try and run across Australia. I had to leave my super powered GM out there.
They didn't have combat implemented the last time I played this. Is that up and running now?
I played Dragonica, but I played in SEA. I got some free items from buying shit at a convenience store that gave out codes with a purchase. Stopped playing after my items expired though.
The first NA servers were run by g-potato and the game was known as SCO.
then the korean devs shat all over g-potatos liscense deal and handed the updated versions of ace online to a europe publisher gameforge.
they then shat all over gameforge and started hosting their own international servers under the original ace online title.
by the time g-potato lost the liscense, the game balance was already fubard to hell and back by the new p2w cash shop items and terrible balance decisions.
I still don't know why they thought auto-aim bot A-gears were a good idea, it was fine without them.
I played the shit out of it when it was in beta. (I was the kid that pretty much played every f2p game ever.)
I was one of the first people to reach max level (like 5th?) and spent most of the game shooting the shit with one of the GMs in town. I don't remember anything else about the game aside from like needing eggs to go to levels.
I played it when it was still regular Dofus but I didn't have access to anything because I was playing for free
probably the only MMO I still want to play
>tfw too poor to pay for a subscription
I didn't think I'd enjoy that game as much as I am. Game still needs many small tweaks, but the character designs are awesome.
I've probably played SRO more than anyone on this planet. I got in when it was at it's peak (a little after launch, servers always full, bots fuckin everywhere). I've never had as much fun in an MMO as I did doing guild/server trade runs in silkroad.
Also had my favorite soundtrack/ambience in any MMO. Too bad the Devs are potatoes and didn't make it what it could have been. (I mean allowing botters to avoid ban by purchasing from the cash mall? Fuck)
look up lineage idol
tons of new content from korea and it's translated
Only played the free trial, but fuck. They sent me a CD. how could I not?
Pic related as far as /v/ is concerned, everyone here is WAY too casual to have played, let alone even gotten anywhere in this game.
I used to play the shit out of it, even got pretty far on my yoyo jesters (bow jesters need not apply. You guys are all a shit).
I stopped playing when they changed how skills level up. This and other changes is why I stopped and I'm glad I did.
What the fuck is a seraph. I assume a new class.
Glad I wasn't the only one to enjoy this
Metin2 had the most grueling and tear-inducing upgrade system. You **could** upgrade your items from +0 to +9, but as you went higher, there was a higher chance that your upgrade would fail and the item would be destroyed. And the upgrades were really expensive.
It was good in that it made the most powerful weapons in the game (and the players that owned/made them) famous and valuable.
the guys who did cabal? No, different company. Korean bollocks all the same, though. God bless them, they try, and I still play the shit out of Rusty Hearts and Combat Arms despite them both being Korean-made grindfests, but they're so bad about patching.
Redmoon was my first MMO as well. I played an Azlar. Mostly sat around in the BA all day every day.
I remember when that Jarexx (Leon?) hit level 1000.
Anyone play this? It's one I dabbled in for a time with a friend but stopped for bigger and better.
tfw no soulmate ;_;
>Quit back during v7
>That feel when I first found out that they renamed every server and got rid of all that awesome music
>mfw they added some new power set combos, and it still had an active fan base, and within in a week they announced their ending it.
Wasn't the main reason the shut it down was to use the servers for guild wars 2?
I hate you so much for reminding me.
>Get a small taste of it.
>Good quest pacing.
>Great class/job system.(Ragnarok 2 even poorly copied it.)
And then it never came out. I swear to god it was going to be the true successor to Ragnarok. Why did it have to die?
Do anyone know or remember a mmo-maker engine called byond?
I remember playing a bunch of shitty mmo games with my cousin and my brother when we were in vacation. We always named our character ass, and added another S for each game we played.
A byond beyblade game would later be the inspiration for a rpg maker game me and my brother made for our cousin.
Sounds neat. I remember hearing some stuff about someone (or the same dev team) making a sequel/remake/spiritual successor to earth eternal.
I would probably have played it for a while if
my brother didn't keep bugging me about this game being furshit. He thought that i was into furry stuff, so i ended up dropping the game because of pressure. I just like anthro animals, no autistic shit.
The beta-testers fucked the game before it came out.
>it's too customizable
>i'm not enjoying all this freedom in character creation, i want to pick classes
I'm honestly glad it's dead.
It was an MMO so obscure I don't even remember it.
Only parts I remember was that it was 2D, first person, no real environments you just clicked arrows and the scene would change. You started in a town and you had a house, at one point you could set traps in your house to ward off invaders. Magic was some weird rune shit.
Alternatively this slavshit right here.
Also Dark Eden.
Black Prophecy. A dogfighting space MMO that looked gorgeous as fuck and none of you played it.
Luna Online. I actually had a friend who had me set up an account and play on the Korean server even before it came out in English over at gPotato. It was cute and a somewhat interesting way of dealing out classes, but it got very grindy very quickly after getting to the third area or so. I was meaning to check out the gPotato version but with nobody to play with, I wasn't much interested in doing so. That, and last I heard it shut down.
This is a rather stupid questionI likely know the answer to but:
Are there any games like these that are still going, that have a thriving community or is i tall really just the big games now/still?
I remember playing A LOT of these when I was younger and it's pure nostalgia but some of these had great settings that I guess my imagination filled in the rest as a kid to make it seem much more epic than the grindfests they were.
I wonder what sort of mmos they'd come up with if they decided to take another shot at tales of series mmo.
I wish I knew how to play on JP servers when they made it free before shutting it down ;_;
Alpha ended in June, they're working on translating like 2 years of updates for Beta.
Also based on posts from their facebook page, it looks like they're also redoing already translated stuff
FPS vs RTS
It was fun beating the casual FPS babies with my Starcraft skills.
Yeah that one was awesome. Shame they didn't advertise it much. Though I think they didn't even give it a proper chance, it shutdown after a beta tests, never properly released, right?
I still weep the demise of this game.
It had so much potential, too, with human controlled world and raid bosses.
I remember this. I used to giggle like a school girl when the game started. The launcher was called the Pi Launcher and I always read it as pee.
I played a lot of bad games through Byond. The only one I played regularly was Final Fantasy IV online. You choose from any of the regular cast and just played through in a group or solo. It was pretty cool.
Yeah, I still can't believe I still have screenshots of this mummy of a mmo
The idea of typing the spell to cast it was pretty cool to me back then.
Don't remember the name of it, but is pretty much a brawler involving robots or some shit. The only memory I have is a stage where you ran from rotating blades while beating the ever living shit out of everything in your way.
yeah it lasted about a year and a half, it was missing a bunch of content from KR cause gpotato thought it was "too asian". gpotato was in a pinch for a good 5 years though, after flyff dropped off the charts for popularity in NA, they just shut down more and more games. Now gpotato is gone and most of their games along with it. the only 3 I know of that survived were flyff (duh, hosted by webzen) rappelz (also hosted by webzen, personally one of my favorite MMOs of all time, with the monster card shit, holy fuck it was fun.), and allods (it was their only money maker as of their closure, so not surprising).
Nowadays I just play maplestory, and continue my hunt for an MMO that will sate me. I play ghost online occasionally, on the KR server with a small but dedicated
portuguesespeaking community,but despite being fun, it's just not quite enough.
I cant be the only one who played Martial Online, right guys?
This reminds me, did anyone else play Shattered Galaxy? That was another MMO I played. A surprisingly fun game with very unique play. Too much grind though.
Come to think of it, it's extremely hard to create a good combat system for TPP, especially in a multiplayer game like an MMO.
On the other hand, in a top-down environment there are a ton of good PvP games already.
So maybe devs should start designing MMOs as top-down and make the "behind-the-shoulder" look optional, used mainly for exploration?
>you can fit more stuff on screen and it's much clearer
>you can see stuff behind you
>you can easily use skills that need targeting
i still think fallen earth is a decent game to sink time into every now and again
the crafting system is time-consuming but well made and fleshed out, and there's a lot of content to go through if you can find a good guild
i should really re-install LOTRO, it's loads of fun and the
roleplay communityis actually pretty nice
I used to play it on latin server, worst mistake ever. I was better than most of the faggots, but handling all those raging Peruvians was a chore. After leaving it for a year or two, went to ijji server and it was much more fun and less laggy, but it was already dying by then.
There still exists a private RYL server called Return of Warrior. IIRC the only thing they did different was to remove the stat requirements on itemss.
Started playing a week ago, shit's sepia as fuck now.
Wasted a couple of years with this. It's still going strong in Europe.
Was surprised to see pic related still exists. Goddamnit I wanted that game to be so much more than it was... Q_Q
