And nobody will play it ever again.
>those days of hanging around in Ape City with your bros and pking are long over
Well, I guess a lot of BR's played it too. Played for at least a decade.
Too bad it is ruined now by the company.
Never heard of anyone who played this.
I fucking loved it though
>PVP fucking everywhere
It was essentially a shitty Diablo 2 online
This. It was really shitty and I have no idea why I played it rather than Diablo 2. It was called Mu Online
i played that for a while. a few months actually.
it was when the duping bug was active and mages were stronger than warriors when leveled correctly
it was always hilarious sitting outside town executing everyone with my staff and eevryone thought I was hacking because I was killing warriors and mages alike double my level
Still probably the best mmo Ive ever played too bad it god ruined by Nexon.
For whatever reason the soundtrack of this game was christian songs about jesus and christmas.
Now I'm sad. I remember playing it with /v/ back in the days.
I used to play this game so fucking much, I'll never forget all the people fighting over penguin meat.
A lot of /v/ played FE when it went f2p. I remember riding through the desert on my faithfull horse Farfelkugel and solving problems. It was pretty fun for a while. And crafting was quite interesting.
Basically the faction system was awarding (or deducting) faction reputation in such fucked up way that people could go on a murder spree on their faction territory and then kill a dozen of NPCs to fix their reputation. There were no real penalties and whole community screams to never apply them. If it wasn't enough, the devs decreased the impact of factions even further
I remember being on Pluto when the premium currency came about.
The war between the turks and everyone else was incredible.
Anyone remember Kal Online?
I used to love that shit so much. Is it still around?
It's not, is it.
oh shit i was going to post this
i remember playing this and picking the stock waifu character and recoloring her hair red because red hair was my fetish
eventually got bored though
This game had so much potential, but was a fucking mess at launch
It all had its 'political' background in old PvP feuds.
At least that's what they claim... From my point of view it was just a bunch of asshats who were abusing the faction mechanics to kill anybody they want, even inside safezones.
Reminded me of this, it really came and went.
oh fuck I played that
my cousin was pretty good with cheat engine, and I set up a bot, he made a hack that let you do soemething like 321747194 damage every time you attacked, and I set up a bot to just stand there and attack over and over right where an enemy spawned
we left our accounts on over night and were almost max level. Went out to town, got back home, and we were banned.
Still fuckin worth it though, that game was the best shit.
Oh wow, and that's RECENT, too.
Thanks anon, you've made my day a lot better. Now we just have to hope it makes the cut.
Holy fuck, did I rage a lot at this BR/Eastern Euro infested shithole. But yet, I still continued to play it.
Guild > Faction killed it. That's just so wrong, it should be outright impossible to have opposing factions in the same guild. It's like you could walk into the Legion camp wearing NCR outfit without anyone minding it
I think the same, just a bunch of kids who love to perform surprise attacks on unexpecting players wearing the same faction label. Some MMOs make it outright impossible to attack members of your faction (and eventually allied factions). While it's drastic, I think it wouldn't be wrong to apply it here
Ah dude i remember playing this shit way back in 2006-7. I remember i used to be that one guy who would try to steal other people's meteor drops lel.
Shit would usually get me killed half the time but whatever.
There were so many issues with it but being a kid when i played it didn't matter so much.
They had a stock market and I invested money into like 3 "companies" and had literally a limitless supply of gold after that
Not that much of a MMO but marketed as such
I started playing again this year but got bored after level 70
the added in too much shit that I don't like, it was better at the start
the company as a whole just blended all of their games mechanics until they were the same, it became 5~ games that were the exact same with different skins
you want to play space conquer? go for it.
How about western conquer? you got it
Please someone tell me they played this.
>tfw it became Illutia and became shit
Unsurprisingly, p2w killed them both. Still extremely fun if you played with people you knew
>Tfw you random and get the dragon
Damn i enjoyed this game
>Emerald master race reporting
God the amount of money people spent on this game was mindblowing. Put in at least 6 years into Official/Private versions of this. I still have the 5065 source files on my old laptop harddrive.
I still have this installed. Never got rid of it.
i wouldnt be surprised if someone who played this browsed 4chan actually
i left because i was 11 and they kept talking about niggers
Mixed guilds made sense back when the shoulder factions existed. And they allowed for interesting alliances which all made sense inside the gameworld's lore.
Rainbow clans are just stupid, though.
Guy's i've been looking for this one multiplayer game for fucking ever.
I played it a shit ton in my childhood but i completely forgot what it was called. It was considered to be an mmo but looking back it really wasn't one.
You had 4 characters to choose from, a burly barbarian type that had very good grappling moves, a swordsman, an archer and a mage that could poop out little balls that rolled everywhere and exploded, looked like Vivi from FF.
It was a 3rd person multiplayer team coop / deathmatch / DM / etc room based game. You could buy new gear for your guy or make his moves better. At the time it was pretty amazing since the game controlled quite well, had a PvE element as well which was a blast. The multiplayer maps were quite complicated so you could use the terrain for your advantage quite often. The grappling moves were something i was really fond of as well.
I have no idea what it was even called, played it a long time ago. Barely remember anything about it, besides a Griffon being one of the mounts and it took place in fuedal china with shu vs wei or some shit. I made friends with a bunch of Mexicans too, good times.
ye but did you play the original RO2 (not that gay shit they have now)
I had to borrow a korean ss# to play this.
another conquer player here, in fact me and a few others i went to high school with played it too. it was one of my first mmos, back when i first discovered internet i played the most obscure mmos ever probably. posting one i have good memories from.
It would be fucking awesome if they made it into single player. The setting is fantastic, only needs some polishing and detailed storyline. I'd buy it, a different approach to post-apo
I played this in middle school after reading about it in Computer Gaming World.
I named my character "Ph34r_M3".
Fuck, I remember this.
>tfw finally got rid of the 25 hours of this shit game logged in my Steam account because the game got removed from Steam
I never see this game discussed on /v/. I can't be the only one who played it right?
aw shit fuck yes
here have some priston tale
I legit play Hello Kitty Online. The game is centered around crafting stuff, and I'm a sucker for that type of shit. I also played a MUD back in the day called Phantasia 4. Hands down the most fun I've ever had playing a game.
Fucking shit mmorpg that focused too much on failing. Only reason I even played this was because my friend was rank1 in the whole world
he was also a GM for the publisher
Kinda sad that nobody ever mentions this. I liked how you could switch classes on-demand.
Another game that /v/ never mentions.
Also, fuck the local publisher for killing this game so early in our country
>make an event where they give out real money for getting HiOs
>lobbies are full of 3course HiO rooms
>people quit on the first course if they miss the shot
You mean "press and hold the skill button, alt-tab, then come back and afk" Online? Yeah I played the official and private server version of that
Did anyone play MUDs? I looked into a few of them around 2005 but they seemed even more time consuming than the shitty korean grind mmos. Are there any decent ones that are still active?
vampires a shit
All dat nostalgia. So shitty yet so fun. It'd be cool to see /v/ take an interest in it and take a stab at making their own world.
A friend of mine thought we could get into it and rip nerds because we were good at shooters.
I asked his friend how solid the shooter side was, in terms of tightness, performance, lag compensation, and general smoothness and he said it was pretty good.
Fuck that guy.
i knight online, fightan slugs or leeches for days. anyone remember pic related? also Return of Warrior was a game i really enjoyed back in the day.
I fucking loved Lunia. It had fun characters with beat em up style gameplay and crazy combos. Shit was great. When all the servers went down, the original creators tried to keep it alive and hosted their own server, giving out free cash shop money every couple of weeks. Sadly, they couldn't maintain it any longer and shut it down earlier this year.
Thanks for reminding me about that game. I use to glitch off the bridge and pop on top of the city gates.
>tfw spending all morning training Lightfoot
Released years before Diablo 2 and it looks way better. Even the skill system is fun, became unbalanced as fuck once they added ousters and started changing scaling on everything
I actually played the beta for like a year, bought the boxed version and played for a further six or seven months as a premium account, had some amazing times until I got false flagged by Punkbuster and had to spend two months getting my account back, by which time I didn't care any more.
Game had some amazing maps.
Not sure if anyone played this or not, I didn't play it much but it was kinda fun for a while
I restarted it about 5 times. Three times out of those, I got overtaken by some huge alien civilization over night and raged my shit off. Twice, I just got bored of grinding techs up and let everything decay. About a year ago I accidentally became the leader of one of the big game factions (the LYNXOR or something like that), but that wasn't any fun.
It's sad that Haxus suspended the project, though I imagine the code was such a mess that it would take less effort to start from scratch rather than fix all the mistakes.
Man i loved this so much, maybe because of the items look like they're coming from diablo 2.
Also those rare monster summon globes were the best shit.
way later they added those weird companion dragons, i thought they would grow with you but they always remain the damn same
I used to play the shite out of the original Moonbase MMORPG, there was nothing to do other than attempt to fly to the moon but it was good fun.
Literally the only person who played this.
man i played the heck out of lunia it was good, the one thing that stands out is i remember getting stuck on random stuff while running. me and a bro made 2 tias and level up until he broke his dagger crafting lolll. heres another great game
Anyone remember Gunster? It was like a mix between Metal Slug and Soldat that ijji hosted for a short while. It was pretty damn fun.
That and the rest of the games on the site was great. I remember figuring out how to get inside the 3d earth model and other shit and convincing everyone I was an admin. Good times
I tried it out on release, no wonder it died quickly
This is not exactly an MMO, but I spent alot of time playing this. I fucking love turn based strategy games. It is a shame only russians make them because I dont understand a word of it.
>shitting around in the church
>laughing at naked dragon mask nerds
>calling the main artist a nigger
>spending months in jail
>getting out and speed hacking in the arena when mods were offline
>getting bows from hacked accounts
>camping reapers and birdmen
>getting that last hit on them
>being the only person to not have the title wipe
Damn shame it's in dev limbo now
Okay, fuck me. I just cant seem to find an image of it.
Anyone know this dead MMO that was sort of an arena based shooter with robots?
>one of the robots(and the MC I guess) has homing missiles which was why every fucking noob uses him
>other robot has a huge as fuck laser that everyone agrees would be OP as shit if it wasnt laggy
>other one has a nuke and maybe some mines
>female robot #64325
RYL was so god damn good. The spell system was amazing, the spell effects were amazing, the two separate races were brilliant and entirely different in style and mechanics. It had god damn arm cannons and shit, and the PVP was just so intense.
This is total influence online. You create your squad and then fight in arenas againts other people. You gain money and XP after each fight and you can buy new shit, like weapons or new squadmates. It was made by russians so they ripped some things straight from fallout.
Last I checked only one other guy on here played this one. It was pretty good too. Really indepth.
Anon, please. They finally listened to the community. PvP is mostly reverted to the old days. I still play.
Ah right, I was thinking of this thing.
Not that anon, but I just logged into my account to check since I've been playing the game on and off for years and hadn't logged in for about two years now. I have no ads either, but I do have 2x Accessory Jr's. I never bought them myself, though. Not seieng any ads.
did anyone play this? i remember the servers went down in like 2008.
>tfw was really known on my warrior and near top on the leaderboards and i dont even remember my character name
rip silent-shadows compendium ;_;
I don't understand how such a fundamentally broken game could be so fun.
I played that too few years ago. Shit was so infuriating when I finaly got metal armor and tommy gun and then some russian fuck killed me with rocket launcher.
But I still enjoyed that game. Walking around hugely populated areas and pickpocketing players never got old.
Who SRO here? I played when the only race was china, how many years ago that was I wonder.
It was amazing. The only thing that blew was the seemingly endless grind, but holy SHIT the PvP and the boss fights were fucking great. The upgrade system was top tier. But of course, the game failed and was sold repeatedly to various owners for 5k a pop.
all i remember was grinding and grinding as a spear dude.
weird how i played the shit out of this game and dont remember alot of it. i remember going to the main town and everyone buffing the shit out of eachother before going to grind again.
I heard this was made by the same people who did Wakfu
I wish i could go back to 2004 man
Getting premium right before ankrahmun was released and exploring taht shit with my guild was so much fun
I remember ankh being released 3 days before my birthday on the 11th of august 2004
ah man, all these feels
Everytime this game trades hands with owners, they promise new content - fail - and sell the game for like 5 grand. I don't get it. I'd love to own it just for nostalgia, but 5k man.
Granado Espada is easily my favorite MMO out of any I've ever played.
Shit is fucking intricate.
Once I found it I was enjoying it, mostly because combat felt so different. Also, it was my first game with double leveling system
Was this the one where you would either start as a Templar with rifles and swords or as a Vampire with blood magic and shit.
I played that game a shit ton and i always remember that one vampire spell that turned you into a coffin, increasing HP regen.
Goodnight sweet prince. No one ever "succesfully" recreated the FPS/MMORPG formula since.
This game was the shit. It was mindless grinding and sucked massive dicks at that, but the content it had was really something. I miss the PvP content, guild studd and shit like Fortress War, no other game ever got that right.
Some cartoonish Korean thing. I remember leaving it logged on overnight with the use key jammed down whacking a luck tree to collect mystery packets which would drop every so often.
Woke up super excited in the morning and found like 800 packets to open.
But do you know about the hidden basement in the tavern?
This one applies to europeans and asians, I guess. I don't think americans had Lineage 2.
>tfw had dusk staff +7 on L2 Gold
>tfw one day someone hacked my account and took everything
I think I cried a little
>wanting to see the source of that abomination
Even if you had the source, I doubt you would get anything out of it. I would love to see the code concerning server management, but the game engine must be a fucking monstrosity, in the bad sense of the word.
Just to add, game is completely dead now. The localizations of the game in China, Korea, Russia, etc are dead with barely anyone playing, and the international version has had server merges, and even with all the bots and goldbotting, the servers aren't even full anymore. You have to bot 24/7 to reach cap, and it still takes months.
There's perfectly scripted server files (leaked) on the net, but all the private servers are dead because there's hundreds of them, mostly with custom shit and 10000x rates that are so unreal it's not even fun to play, and split up the community everywhere, making each server have like 20 people at any time.
It's a real shame, game used to be fun.
I can't believe nobody played the game of pretend other than me?
I did and it was a goddamn mess. Nearly all players were using Baek Ho and Musketeer, it's fucking boring.
Collecting character cards was far more interesting than the PvP because the backstory was kinda decent.
Oh definitely not. At today's standards just about all MMOs are shit for just about everyone, except kiddos who don't know better.
The same way we didn't know better and are on a nostalgia rush about cheap asian mmos.
i just hope star citizen and elite dangerous will be good
The game was never finished due to financial problems(iirc) and was made free to play for a while until they closed the servers. If you followed the main story long enough you would encounter a door that you couldn't open and thus unable to complete the quest.
Note: Shitty stock image because I no longer have any of my screenshot, since I've switched pcs between now and 2011.
This mmo was fucking great. Ahead of it's time, in a lot of ways.
Played it with a m8 who I haven't seen online in 3 years, used to be a main m8
This was an awful first MMO. I thought that having the freedom of movement to jump over buildings and the ability to visit a phone booth to change your class was normal. I still get pissed when niggers expect me to play an alt just to play another class.
Why do developers even waste money on releasing this crap?
Any of you play Fiesta online? That game had horrible grinds but I met some qt girl on there who sent me like 30 messages on the forums after I quit. Was too much of a sperglord to talk to her anyway, that game was shit but it has a certain charm, man
>No Mabinogi posted yet
I miss that game, and pretending to be a girl in it.
I only personally knew one person who played this. Too bad the NA server got boinked, but it's getting a revival by the original creators, apparently.
I was literally about to post this instead. Mah nigga.
I think I win (or lose depending on how you look at it)
Game was grindy but gud, then WoW and its clones came and it died.
HOLY SHIT DUDE
You played that too!
Did you play the other 2d freebies that were out back then? I remember some sort of engine that could let you make any MMO with FF4/FF5 sprites and tiles, and everyone and their mom was making 2d Online games like that in the late 90's.
I don't think it's been posted yet. But does anyone here remember that one mmo that let you be some sort of eagle-warrior. It had gameplay similar to WoW as well if I remember correctly.
Had rather unique combat system at the time where you had to time your abilities and mouse click correctly to attack faster or something like that. Never really got a grasp of it due to the game being in Korean.
Heroes of the Three Kingdoms Online.
I ran the leading guild in the Beta, but generally stopped playing not long after beta ended. By the time I came back, game was closed, starcraft: broodwar was dead, and I had no way of finding Young.
Yeah, this game is getting revived in a week or two.
The facebook page for it is dfoglobal, take a look.
Also at launch we wont be having the ancient Nexon version anymore, so thats good.
Ow shit I actually played it for like a week
>joined law enforcement faction what ever it's called
>late night organized as shit raids into opposing faction territories
>people standing in military fashion
>people actually listening to senior orders
shit was cash
Aerial Flippy Tricks in: A Grind Too Far
>tfw no threads on /v/ or /vg/
>tfw almost no streams on Twitch except for one
Am I the only person who appreciates good old UT-style fucking around with customizable guns?
priston tale was my first mmo. i though it was really fun. Although i played a beta, so it was incomplete and had only 1 quest (second skill tree). You only killed monsters, but for some reason it was fun, because the monster design was cool and there were a lot of different ones.
And the game felt like an adventure and the community was really nice and fun.
How about that Maplestory 2 coming out soon?
Looks fun as hell and a whole hell of a lot customizable that Maplestory 1.
I loved th is game. I started playing it a week before it closed.
Hunter Blade. It was the copy paste of Monster Hunter, but fun, with PVP. It closed. Anyone knows any private server?
Say that to my suplex m8
Was this called Space Cowboy Online? Because that was some intense shit.
This had some cool stuff. Like that media player ingame that'd play all the musics you put in its folder. Why can't other MMO's do this shit?
Makes me remember lineage 2 and how you could have MSN messenger working INSIDE THE GAME. That was pretty rad as well
>There will never be a modern MMO this ambitious or with mechanics this in depth

There was this other Gpotato MMO I played. I can't remember the name, I feel like it was Karum online but googling that does nothing. I don't think it exists anymore. It was pretty fun though.
RIP American Servers
You were the carbon copy we needed to make capcom open their eyes and launch on the US. Too bad you failed.
Eudemons best MMO out there. Seriously check it the fuck out and get addicted. Its like pokemon meets Eve online without the boring.
>Tfw still have plat crown Vanquish from easter '09
>Mfw its worth like 300 dollars
>tfw I can't just be a fucking blacksmith in fantasy land
no I gotta be the guy who has to kill the big bad demon or the town razing dragon
just send the guards to handle it goddamn
Why mmos so shitty?
>>realise that you cant make an MMO where everyone wants to be the hero
This. This is the biggest issue.
And the thing is, I'm sure many people would enjoy just being full-time merchants or janitors just from the novelty of being someone new and talking to new people.
