I'd like some help, some good opinions from my fellow MMORPG.com players.
I need to play a MMO. It's true, I'm a MMO addict.
I'm currently re-subbed to WoW, I haven't touched my level 70 raid-geared toon, I've been fooling around with an Undead Rogue on a PvP server and a Dranei Hunter on a PvE server.
I'm currently active in Tabula Rasa, but I cancelled the sub and it is set to expire somewhere around January 7th I think. I have a level 16 Commando and a 15 Ranger.
I have LOTRO installed (high res client) but don't have a subscription. I've downloaded the trial and tooled around with it... 3 times I think. Never got past level 8 or so.
I have EQ2 basic purchased and installed, but am not currently subbing. Got a warrior (cat person) up to level 12 I think before I cancelled the sub and stopped playing.
My problems -
WoW - burnt out on high end content, don't have the time nor will to go back to raiding. PvP is pointless and just a gear grind. The prospect of leveling up a new toon is interesting, but to what end?
Tabula Rasa - Fun and interesting, but I really can't play for more then 2 hours or so at a time without becoming bored. I find it hard to have the motivation to log in, knowing that in 2 hours or so I'll get bored and log out.
LOTRO - Haven't really seen anything that makes it "special" or stand out from the crowd. Combat seems very slow and painfully boring. The classes seem really limited. Monster play intrigues me, but is it enough to justify a subscription?
EQ2 - Loved it at first, but it got very bland and stale. I hate the character models, the cat person and lizard guy are the only two I can stand looking at.
EVE - I enjoy it, and actually would like to check out the new client... but playing EVE requires such a commitment of time and effort, I'm really just looking for something casual and fun.
I'm hoping/praying for Beta invite into AoC and WAR (who isn't) and I'm really, really hyped for WAR. I know WAR is going to end up the next MMO I play.
So I guess I'm just looking for a MMO to pass the time until WAR and/or AoC comes out. Problem is, I'm not too big into any of the MMOs that are currently available!!
I need help. Which game from those listed above should I play until WAR / AoC is released?
I've got Halo 3 and enjoy it from time to time, but at the skill level I'm at, every game is very competitive and playing gets me really high strung... I need games to relax not raise my blood preasure. I've got Mass Effect, and it's awesome, but I've already played through the main campaign once, and am finding that the side content is really quite stale and unimaginative in comparison to the main story.
Please leave me your pick and why you picked it in the comments sections, I'm very grateful for any/all comments.
So, to sum it up, I need a MMO to play for the next few months or so till WAR and/or AoC come out. I want it to be something fun and casual, yet not completely pointless and stale.
This is the million dollar question everyone seems to be asking, so maybe by helping me, ya'll can help each other and help yourselves!
