OP  4/15/13 9:53:27 PM#1

I can't believe I, when I was a mere teenager, somehow managed to remain subscribed to WoW for such an exorbitant amount of time, shelling out $15 every month to play it. Where did I get such money? I look at my stagnating college student income, take into account the impossibility of getting a job, and realize I'll have to preserve this $137  until I join the military in the Summer. 

To put it simply, I'm no longer interested in paying large sums to acquire an enjoyment I'm not even certain of, and I'm sure many of you are in the same boat. 

So what can I do for free? 

[mod edit]

What about those other games? Like Warhammer and Age of Conan? Are those f2p? What IS f2p? Is the new Star Wars game f2p? 

I do own Warhammer and Age of Conan, mind you. Though those and WoW up to Wrath are all I have.

if your looking for an MMORPG (from the sounds of it you are) Runescape is a good bet... especially since it has promise in the near future to not just be browser based but app based with the move to html5 (from what I have come to understand of it). It has about 20,000 hours of content to play through on the f2p servers.

But, I am pretty sure this thread is better suited for the LFG (looking for game) section of the forum. You might get a bigger response there.

I recognize there are WoW private servers but those seem like empty things that are really mere shells of what the game was.. I can hardly persist in them.

A little Military wisdom.

I'm much older now, However I would suggest joining the Air Force or Marines. Here is why :

Long time ago I was in the Air Force and went to my training school after basic on a Navy base. Close to the end of training both everyone in my Navy class and I got our duty assignments the same day.  Each of them got assigned to a ship and they were pissed.  Well I got my assignment in upstate NY ( very close to home ).  Needless to say everyone was both mad and jealous. I turned to all of them to say YOU JOINED THE NAVY what did you expect ?.....Think about that !

Now I work for the Department of Defense. This is kind of like being in the Military but without the uniform. I travel around the world and work for all branches, I see it all.....I would only recommend the Air Force or the Marines, they have much higher standards and way better education and training, add that life is much better.

Last I would say, If your going this summer I would drop the Video games and I phones NOW....The withdraw will be very bad in Basic Training............I would also suggest running five miles a day and be able to do a lot of pushups if you Join the Army or Marines. Your life would be soooo much easer in Boot camp :)

It's 2 hours at minimum wage so...maybe you worked one hour or two overtime that month ?

I would say that EQ 2 and AOC  are the best F2P mmo's now.

Yep, different era back then... nowadays you can't throw a rock without hitting at least one f2p mmo :) (or freemium, or b2p)

 

AoC is a nice choice, it's free up to the cap (with a gold limit and less inventory), but you cannot access the Godslayer content.

If you aren't an anti-Cryptic player, STO and CO are also free all the way, and at the endgame you can buy what you need for Zen you acquired by playing. For a newcomer maybe those are the most free titles among freemium games. Probably same would apply Neverwinter when it will go live.

TSW is a nice choice too, it's b2p (but it's cheap and you can even buy the box on sale sometimes), above that box price it's free. There are additional content (like DLC's) if you like extra missions and storyline.

GW2 also b2p but I don't play it so don't know the exact influence of the gems and the gem store there :)

LotRO has a decent model, but only for former subscribers, as a newcomer it's pretty limited.

 

And the list could go on forever... :)

Everquest is the top mmorpg that is free to play. You will not find a more free game anywhere that gives you the amount of options Everquest does. Also know that Everquest blasts Everquests 2 population bigtime. Join the server Vox! You wont be dissappointed!  https://www.everquest.com/

TERA ... As I hear there is almost no limitation.

Also Vanguard if you are looking for EQ type game.

That's interesting. Do you have a source for that?

This weekend is a free trial for Guild Wars 2, so you can at least give that a try for no cost. If you like it, you'll be expected to purchase the game, but there's no subscription. It's well worth a look.

There are some other free to play games.

Istaria:Chronicles of the Gifted: free to play, no cash shop. Free players get only one race (Human) and are not entitled for a plot of land. Every other thing is open to them.

Lord of the rings online: free to play, while some things are restrained - and can be unlocked by using Turbine points (stuff you get for doing quests and tasks, like kill 30 spiders / 240 Angmarim). Some options available only to those who paid or are paying. Some regions are to be bought for cash or in-game currency.

In those two games you don't have to spent a penny and still have fun.

I was never into the F2P MMO's but I have started playing Lord of the Rings Online and Age of Conan again and have to admit that they are quite good as F2P and have dabbled in Star Trek Online and TERA which both seem to be worthy of spending time and effort in.

Also I have dabbled with Age of Wushu and Champions Online which were OK but nothing spectacular but I would say to avoid SWTOR F2P as it is the most limited of it's kind out there.

Iv'e read on this thread EQ2 and AOC for likely the best free to play MMORPG's out there? In my mind not a chance:

 

Runescape world record for most popular free to play MMORPG.

http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/7000/most-popular-free-mmorpg

And one for most prolifically updated.
http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/6000/most-prolifically-updated-mmorpg

 

Weekly Behind the scenes videos Talking with the mods and monthly live streams, Huge holiday event contests, sub-divded team who's sole job it is to scour the forums and gather player feed back, garunteed content polls, and big events surrounding any significant update.

http://www.youtube.com/user/runescape

http://services.runescape.com/m=news/

 

27 skills that are actual skills to train in their own right (you want armor? you can go mine the ores, smelt them, and smith them into the armor you want...each stage granting experience to a skill).

 

tons of team based mini-games with rewards that effect normal play. plus many so termed distractions and diversions for pass the time entertainment, and ways to customize your look that go above and beyond.

 

Questing that is not all kill and collect bs (as in you have to nagotiate with NPC's, solve riddles and puzzles, disarm traps, pay attention to story lines, navigate mazes, collect special materials to create special items, repair machines etc. etc.)

 

The Runescape team has been sinching up things and continuing to improve the game environment post the evolution of combat update, are continously revamping, voice acting, and most of all preparing for the move to HTML 5 and what it will bring (epic draw distances, richer textures, true climate effects, not to mention more high fedelity sound with full composition scores).

 

...I can't think of a dev team or by extension a game that is more 'on top of it'.

STO is pretty good if you like star trek.

DDO is pretty good but graphics is a bit dated.

There is a new game called Warframe. 3rd person gun/melee action combat. I like it.
