There is no such mmorpg atm .. so yea, we will see what Wildstar, TESO, EQ or AA has :)

 

None of those are going to be hardcore either.

I would say this is the most common reason,without  friends or others to enjoy the game with,it is simply not fun.

I think MOST realize this but still play these games too selfishly,always worrying about how fast they can become Elite  or max level or whatever.

One of the biggest mistakes you can do is login in every single day,you WILL become bored fast.Better to have variety in your life,don't look to gaming everyday,play sports,just hangout with friends,go places,take the dogs to the beach,go to a movie with your gf/bf or family or find and event whatever,you just need to stop the everyday gaming trend,gaming is NOT a race.

You can get insta-heroic raid gear in WoW? You need to share your method =P

I can't really say that I quit MMO's, but atm there isn't one that interests me enough. Something that matters too is that I run a modded Minecraft server for some family and friends.

Since we do that, we (me and my friends who usually play MMO's together) became more critical about MMO's I guess. Because there is always Minecraft with crazy replayability because there are so many good mods for that game.

And i went back to WoW because of LFR (before i quit again). Wasting weeks and weekend nights just to raid & get gear? Thanks but no thanks!

I'm not playing any MMO right now so I suppose I could answer this.

The biggest factor for me is that so many of the games out are F2P or some hybrid that I just can't get on board for those. I like to see everyone on the same playing field and know that the person next to me is paying the same to be in the game.

Saying this I never found my perfect game... and I've played many of them.

Finding nothing to pull me in with gameplay keeps the payment line item higher on priority.

All I want is a heavily crafting based game with no forced grouping for crafting but heavy interaction with others via bartering/auction houses. I like being a merchant and in my 'super fun time' I want to fight over land with other people in PVP.

I just want crafting to be important in the game. I know plenty of people won't want to do it but I don't want to be FORCED to do dungeons when I can sell them consumables to use in their dungeon. I would keep up the PVP front to give them a group of regulars to follow around when they get of out of their stinky dungeons but PVP is much more challenging to me than the same mobs.... in the same position.... doing the same scripted moves... in a dungeon. I've played that game for years, the excitement is gone and yes, I was in high-level raiding guilds and even was class lead a few places so I was part of the A team planning strategies. It still doesn't beat a real opponent because once you have a strat, you just perform it repeatedly.

Last game I had that was nearly close to what I wanted was Warhammer but I got chased out of there by 3 guilds that took a dislike to me playing a healer/dmg hybrid.  It was against their core beliefs and boy did they let me know... all the time.. instantly when I logged in the rants began. They made logging in brutal, if you could be DDOSed thru whispers, I would say I hit that mark daily lol  They even made a teamspeak server to rant about me and invited me hahahaha, that's when you know you have ticked someone off eh? Eventually I couldn't keep enough of them on ignore to play the game. It was such a mess I just walked away after a few months of being targeted for my playstyle.

If I could mix the PVP from Warhammer with the crafting from Ryzom along with some siege building, send me to that game.

Oh, something else... dailies have started to tick me off. Don't force me to login daily just for something and limit me. Some days I have 12 hours to play, if I want to - why be a cockblocker and try to make me do 6 sessions instead over 6 days.

Fun people became too rare.

Most people were either arrogant a$$hats, or wanted to simply do their daily chores as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Rather than annoying them by trying to play, I did as almost everyone else -played MMOs as single-player games.

 

The thing is, there are single player games which are better than MMOs. For RPGs one should use a board and dice. For MMO-play FPS are more fair and perfectly balanced.

MMORPGs are fun if you can play without rushing, spending time messing about with friends figuring out stuff at your own pace and building up a guild and an experience together. I can`t seem to find that in an MMO anymore, so I play single player games instead.

I do the same.

However, so what if there are SP RPG better than MMO. Some MMO has unique IP/setting, and i play them for it. You can't just play the "best" (for you, since best is subjective) RPG forever anyway.

For example, I found Deus Ex Human Evolution better than Shadowrun Returns, but that does not mean that i only play Deus Ex and not Shadowrun Returns. SR is also fun. Ditto for many MMOs.

AoC - game had only 20 levels of finished content Bullshit, This game has even more content now with Rise of the godslay it's your own fault you didn't procced any further 

 

FF XIV - worst mmo ever.. No world feeling - Really? This felt more like a "World" than any mmos since wow, and some before it. NO LOADING SCREENS, ALL open ended world. Again, You really must have not played this game past the opening cinematic.

FF XIV arr - there are equall games that cost much less to play - ARR is the best mmo out (imo) It let's crafters be something unlike 90% of the mmo's. The loading sucks sure, get a sdd, no problem. The end game raid ( BC) is actually tough, unlike most stale mmo's

 

mostly stupid reasons, and many games i tried a few times, but its allways the same reason as before that makes me loose interest with the game.

I'm beginning to think you hardly spend time in mmo's thus the reason you have such BS reasons why you don't like them. Take off your rose colored glasses and give games a chance 

IF YOU'RE A KIND HUMAN PLEASE HELP. If you can't, At least share it on FB! Thanks

Freelancer- (I consider this to be an MMO if played on a multiplayer server with a high population cap.) Did everything there was to do and then some. Still the best game ever but it just grew old.

WoW- Grind was boring and the arena PvP was unplayable except at certain levels. Not enough reasons to Open World PvP and no objectives to Open World PvP as you level.

LotRO- Made it through the grind and was really enjoying myself in the Ettenmoors when they raised the level cap. Didn't want to grind again.

Darkfall- Unholy grind time and the requirement of Auto-Hotkey to be competitive. Thankfully both problems were fixed in Unholy Wars (My current MMO.)

SWTOR- Lost interest shortly after finishing the storyline. WoW / LotRO all over again. PvPing to level was nice though.

Mortal Online- Very buggy and horribly unbalanced. Great game otherwise.

Wurm- Requires too much commitment. All your crops and animals will die if you leave.

Xsyon- Not enough to do once you build your settlement.

Tibia, Lineage 2 - Because they ate my life away.

The hundred other MMOs I tried - They weren't as good as L2.

 

And now L2 is dead and there will never be such a game again.

There seems to be a reoccurring theme that one of the core concepts of "true" MMORPGs is they have to be massive, tedious timesinks. Some of the classics certainly had them but today's games simply can't support it. TL;DR: Today's reality doesn't support your nostalgic delusions.


I'd say the main reason is the demographic change- since WoW's popularity there are a lot more MMO gamers that simply wouldn't tolerate eight hour camps and the bottom line for any production corp is to make money. Having you sit with some guildies, piss bottles lining the floor and taking up bandwidth isn't doing that. Even when I played on P99 there was considerable complaining about guild monopolies on certain spawns and running trains on competitors. Is that kind of thing exciting? It can be but it's also really terrible game design.- particularly if you want more people playing.


Secondly, another thing (at least in EQ1 and early CoH as I recall) that I didn't have to deal with are the bots and goldsellers. If you think in today's games there would be any chance of getting items from a unique long-spawn mob with bots and such out there you are absolutely wrong. Maybe if it's programmed so that all that do damage can get the loot such as in GW2 but then I suspect that players willing to do all day spawn camps were the same ones that had to be a special little snowflake as well.

 

I'm so utterly sick and tired of the nostalgia card being played.  Its complete and utter BS.  You notice how every time one of these people plays the nostalgia or rose colored glasses they always cite some complete crap about how we supposedly loved these games because of the tedium and time sinks.  Yet time and time again we explain our position and they just flat assed ignore it and continue spouting nonsensical bullshit.

Today's "reality" is a reality of UTTER and complete FAILURE, with literally hundreds of millions of dollars WASTED.  The only, and i mean only example that can truly be called success was WOW.  Which we now know was due to completely different reasons and NOT the formula of the game.  Which has been copied ad nauseum to the tune of more complete failure.  You guys love to get on your pedastels and high horses and talk about how we don't get it, and we're just stuck in the past and blah blah blah, but your generation of developers have yet to come to the table with anything even remotely worth the shit.

You guys are so far up your own asses that you can't even recognize that maybe, just maybe, SOME of the aspects of those old games had merit.  You toss out the baby with the bath water because you're so damn egotistical that your way is better that you can't recognize what works and what doesnt.  Its literally the definition of insanity.  We've done the same thing over and over and keep expecting it to work and it doesnt.  At some point you have to look back and say, "hrmm, maybe they had some of it right".

Hell, even Hitler was behind the development of the modern highway system used in most countries.

 

Also, the whole demographic change is correct, the difference is that the people who are playing MMO's are not MMO players.  They're single player gamers playing MMO's because MMO's have become glorified single player games. Fact and Truth.

UO - just could not stand the top/down view

AC - EQ was more fun 

EQ - Spawn camping

DAOC - expansion forced PvE grinding

EQ2 - WoW beta was more fun.

EQ2 2 nd time - hard to find groups.

WoW -  vanilla raiding was to timeconsuming 

WoW 2 nd time - there was no challenge left

GW - finished the storie based content 

Lotro -  combat annimations feeling unnatural and not fluent

Vanguard - worst annimations.

AoC - game had only 20 levels of finished content

Warhammer online - pvp dissapointed compared to DAoC

DCUO - not enough endgame

DDO - my guild died, was not having enough fun and wanted a change.

Tera - didnt like the setting and rooted during combat was irritating me

Rift - unnatural annimations 

SWTOR - finished the main stories of my 3 mains.

TSW - combat was uninspiring

Neverwinter - combat had not enough choices, and to few classes.

FF XIV - worst mmo ever.. No world feeling

FF XIV arr - there are equall games that cost much less to play

GW2 -  nonadvancement at max level ( cgaracter, gear or. Story) and non trinity combat is to chaotic in groups...

 

 

mostly stupid reasons, and many games i tried a few times, but its allways the same reason as before that makes me loose interest with the game.

 

i've played and quit most of these games for similar reasons,

just curious, what did you finder "funner" about EQ compared to AC?

 

I thoroughly enjoyed AC, and still think it is the MMORPG to date.

 

I found in EQ there was no community besides the fact that some areas forced you numerically wise to have more fire power, in AC you could do anything with tact and trial, but somehow the community was much greater bonded because of the system they had in place, the classless systems, diverse open world landscapes, allegiance systems, buffing system, ect, in AC quests that might "require 4" people, were less because of the firepower needed, more because they might be things you need multiple people for, aka holding open levers for doors so your band can advanced and push a button that unlocks the previous door so you could run up to them, or jumps and climbs that required you to stand on a friends shoulder ( could be bypassed if you were an amazing jumper I'm sure.. ).

 

PvP was balanced - a level 40 could defeat a level 200, skill based, twitch style.

PvW was fun, engaging quests that are not rinse and repeat, open world, constantly updated and changing world, developer ran events, holidays, ect, meaningful loot drops that were usable from level 5 to level 126+

Spellsystem and Skill system was open ended, could choose whatever skills you wanted and build your "class" around your play style, spells encouraged other players to find and buff newbies and friends.

Economy was great, there was a chance of finding a perfect item on any of the monsters, so it wasn't just like most games where you grind to a tier level, do a certain quest for end-game gear.

Actuall dungeons and lands that required jumping and locked doors, acid pits and traps., and not just some cheesy Jump quest ala Gw2,

Community was great in the beginning, it was pioneers of medieval fantasy, D&D, roleplaying, actual allegiance systems that encouraged players to seek out new players and help them in the world, towns across the landscape with different benefits be it decently priced fletcher, or a mage tower, or near popular dungeons, or not so popular, but hidden and held secretive areas...

 

 

 

In the end I have quit most current Online Games, because they do not meet what I like to think of as an Massive Multi-player Online Roleplaying Game.

 

MASSIVE -

Oblivion 16 miles square ~ WoW in 2004 was 80 miles square ~ Asheron's Call 500 miles square

 

MULTI-PLAYER -

as stated above Forced grouping comes in two styles, numerical battles, aka EQ/WOW and thinking battles, pulling levers, standing on another players shoulders, aka AC

Online

Roleplaying Game -

This I find can be interpreted many ways, AC and EQ quests I consider Role playing quests, WoW quests I do not consider role playing for 99% of the quests, AC I found Roleplay community was better then EQ, because of the actual benefits and system to get players together, instead of silly numerical battles, aka boss regens to fast, ect.

Some of the classics certainly had them but today's games simply can't support it. TL;DR: Today's reality doesn't support your nostalgic delusions. I'd say the main reason is the demographic change- since WoW's popularity there are a lot more MMO gamers that simply wouldn't tolerate eight hour camps and the bottom line for any production corp is to make money. Having you sit with some guildies, piss bottles lining the floor and taking up bandwidth isn't doing that. Even when I played on P99 there was considerable complaining about guild monopolies on certain spawns and running trains on competitors. Is that kind of thing exciting? It can be but it's also really terrible game design.- particularly if you want more people playing. Secondly, another thing (at least in EQ1 and early CoH as I recall) that I didn't have to deal with are the bots and goldsellers. If you think in today's games there would be any chance of getting items from a unique long-spawn mob with bots and such out there you are absolutely wrong. Maybe if it's programmed so that all that do damage can get the loot such as in GW2 but then I suspect that players willing to do all day spawn camps were the same ones that had to be a special little snowflake as well.  
I'm so utterly sick and tired of the nostalgia card being played.  Its complete and utter BS.  You notice how every time one of these people plays the nostalgia or rose colored glasses they always cite some complete crap about how we supposedly loved these games because of the tedium and time sinks.  Yet time and time again we explain our position and they just flat assed ignore it and continue spouting nonsensical bullshit.

Today's "reality" is a reality of UTTER and complete FAILURE, with literally hundreds of millions of dollars WASTED.  The only, and i mean only example that can truly be called success was WOW.  Which we now know was due to completely different reasons and NOT the formula of the game.  Which has been copied ad nauseum to the tune of more complete failure.  You guys love to get on your pedastels and high horses and talk about how we don't get it, and we're just stuck in the past and blah blah blah, but your generation of developers have yet to come to the table with anything even remotely worth the shit.

You guys are so far up your own asses that you can't even recognize that maybe, just maybe, SOME of the aspects of those old games had merit.  You toss out the baby with the bath water because you're so damn egotistical that your way is better that you can't recognize what works and what doesnt.  Its literally the definition of insanity.  We've done the same thing over and over and keep expecting it to work and it doesnt.  At some point you have to look back and say, "hrmm, maybe they had some of it right".

Hell, even Hitler was behind the development of the modern highway system used in most countries.

 

Also, the whole demographic change is correct, the difference is that the people who are playing MMO's are not MMO players.  They're single player gamers playing MMO's because MMO's have become glorified single player games. Fact and Truth.


I'm not at all saying that some of the old mechanics didn't have merit. The best times I had in MMORPGs were in EQ1, CoH, and vanilla WoW in that order. I personally prefer MMORPGs that encourage communities and socializing and the sum of all of the mechanics in games such as early EQ1 helped to support that (never player AC1, or DAOC) however there are no one or two of those that did the job- it was how all of the mechanics played off of each other, the type of person who actually had internet access back then, and the lack of other choices for games in the genre. That doesn't even begin to touch how Verant moreso and later SOE refused to bow to player complaints/critique for the most part. Again, it was the combination of all of these things that made the experience in that game in particular what it was.


Even if you get back a few of the mechanics that you consider good it will not bring back the other aspects that contributed to why the experience in games then was what it was. The outcry for a return to those old mechanics is both irrational and unrealistic because it won't get you what you're looking for. I'm not saying that all of the changes that have been made since then are better- in fact the current state of MMORPGs is why I rarely play any and when I do they are emulated servers of those games I loved that are more or less intact from the time that I loved them. They are also obscure enough that today's mass-market internet-culture MMO gamers generally overlook them.


I'm not even saying that the experiences that are discounted by some as "nostalgia goggles" are incorrect, but because the nature of the genre has irrevocably changed and the average MMO player is vastly different now than then that just bringing in some of the old mechanics from old games is not enough to make everything work as it did back then- those games would flounder. It would be like SWG all over again.

Long term / grindy and hard end-game (not casual friendly everything like wow has)

Subscription based

 

There is no such mmorpg atm .. so yea, we will see what Wildstar, TESO, EQ or AA has :)

 

None of those are going to be hardcore either.

If they wont have LFR or insta gearing like WoW has, I will be more than happy :)

You can get insta-heroic raid gear in WoW? You need to share your method =P

Sorry I dont see difference between LFR-Normal-Heroic .. same bosses, same armor (just different colours where heroics are most ungly ones usually) It was 10x better when there was just one tier, not 4 like now ( LFR Flex Norm Heroic )

You weren't paying attention.

LFR - no commitment, can do at any time, some harder mechanics disabled

normal - you need a raid group ... may even need to commit to a raid schedule

hard - need to even practice and give up your weekends.

It is 10x better than before ... essentially one cannot raid unless you commit to a raid guild .. which is a very bad thing. Not everyone wants to do that.

I know what they are, I went back to wow few months ago and downed ToT normal, quit doing progression on heroic.

My oppinion stays. Raid gear and raid bosses should be only for those who has time, not give everyone watered down gear with just different colours .. LFR is just one of the dumbest **** ive seen. LFR shoud be used only for obsolete tiers, not actual ones.

 

Its like give everyone Ferarri cause not everyone has money to buy one .. just different colours and maybe worse engine .. pff .. no thanks
