My favorite moment in my MMO history was getting into SWG beta. It was my first MMO; a genre I wasn't even sure I knew about. It was "Star Wars", so I was excited just for that.

 

But "The Moment" for me was when I got out of the solo tutorial area and stepped outside of the Theed spaceport to be amongst other players for the first time. I was blown away with the concept of being in a Star Wars world with others. People were running around, talking, emoting. Not far away, a Peko Peko had made its way into the port. It took everyone to bring it down.

 

I was hooked. I consumed as much as I could. Within a few weeks I was able to turn on my "Helper" tag and assist others. Attending a stress test a few days into beta (the goal SOE put out was to go find a terminal that was loaded with credits; if I remember right.) We all started at the same location (outside Eisley, was it?). Within a minute, my client barfed for a few minutes. When it recovered, it was me and one other dude nearby. Everyone else was gone; collecting lots of credits I suspect. I typed in "Everyone's lost but us". The other guy laughed it up and understood my movie reference.

 

We remained in touch for most of the beta, but when the game launched, we lost touch. Turns out we happened to choose the same live server. The Force was with us. I had used the same toon name, and he happened upon me. We joined forces; my wife included along with his father. I made us a guild, met others, built a city and crafted memories that last to this day.

 

You can list the bugs, you can talk about the declining population, the combat upgrade mistake, the NGE disaster, and the nail in the coffin. None of it matters or changes what I was able to experience because the virtual world that was Star Wars Galaxies.

 

No other game has been able to come even close to that same level of freedom, entertainment, and immersion. I continue to seek, but I am starting to lose hope.

 

Star Wars Galaxies. My Moment in MMO Time.

SWG was my first MMO and by default has my greatest moments. Too many to mention and I would rather a more recent and active moment anyway.

 

FF14 ARR, when the main scenario quest for level 15 is all but complete and you step on to the Airship for the very first time. Your character will turn toward the camera and "smile at you". It's one of those pride moments that really cement an affinity you can have with a game character.

On a late Friday afternoon, a colleague had been looking at the old Allakhazam, reading some info about a song for his bard. I remember being so intrigued, I left early, picked up a copy of EQ, a new video card, and raced home. I think I got home a little before 5pm, updated my hardware & drivers, and maybe had the game updated by 630 or 7pm; these were the days of 56k modems, after all.

With all my lights out, a warm hot pocket in hand, the glow from my PC screen felt more like a movie screen than a video game. I rolled a Gnome Enchanter, and started in Ak'anon.


I couldn't tell you how many hours I wandered, awestruck at the depth of this new playground. I'd memorized my spells, had my trusty, rusty dagger in its sheath and yellow pajamas draped about my shoulders. I knew I was supposed to go talk to my guild master about some important task, but ... I just wandered! Though this was my home city, and every NPC was amiable and kind, I still explored with a minor sense of fear!


What happened if I swam in the lake near the king's castle? The water looked creepy, and green, and ... creepy; I jumped in, and discovered quickly that my Swimming skill (1) needed some work. I leapt out of the water in fear of my virtual life, but made a mental note to practice swimming, so I could later explore the lake more thoroughly.


What was in that cave up ahead? What was a skeleton doing guarding that door?! Uh-oh, don't want to start trouble, I'd better grow up some before I go check *THAT* out.


I'd wandered through some hallways, and I found the friendly captain of the city guards. He'd wanted to talk to me about something as well, and the dialogue indicated that the city was in trouble. I'd meant to talk to him, to say that I would "Quickly resolve the matter", but alas - was the default autoattack key, and I was as n00b as n00bs can be.

 

"You've ruined your own lands, you'll not ruin mine!!" Cried the city guards, and I was slain in under a second. Magically, I reappeared, but not inside the town; I was outside the main gate, in the Steamfont Mountains.


I was also naked! I remember experiencing mixed sensations of embarrassment and dread; what had I done? Was I now exiled? I changed the hotkeys so that I wouldn't make the same mistake again.


The guards still seemed kind to me, and allowed me back inside, but I wasn't quite sure where to go. I started to see [you are hungry], and [you are thirsty] on the screen... oh no! I'm now naked, penniless, *AND* hungry. I'd better go find my stuff! After some time of learning the passageways about the city, I found my gear, neatly folded up into a yellow square. How polite of the city guard to not attack me on sight. They'd given me a second chance, and I wasn't about to waste it.


I agreed to help the city; I swore allegiance to my guild. I hurried outside, back to the dangerous expanse of Steamfont, to rid my beloved city of the rat plague. I found an old backpack, which really helped to collect stacks and stacks of rat whiskers & fur. A friendly Elf Druid nearby bought these baubles, and after returning to the city to declare my resounding success against the rats, I had enough silver to buy more powerful spells.

I met other Gnome players in the guild hall: one Wizard, one Magician. We decided to face the next danger together: a camp of evil, Gnome-eating Kobolds, just beyond the rat-filled valley, far beyond the protection of the city guards.

 

We didn't expect to survive, but we went anyway.

Carefully, oh so carefully, we crept through the valley, down this way and that, past the rats, up the little slope. There ahead were the enemies' tents; wandering about were three or four snarling Kobolds. Little gnome bones littered the landscape. I was breathing heavy, literally on the edge of my seat.

Then it happened.

BANGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!

I just about jumped out of my socks. It was about 6am the next morning, I'd been playing all night, and the newspaper had just struck my front door.

Honestly, this story makes me happy!!..... NOTHING like your first MMO session..... I would do anything to feel that way again in a game :)

One of my best memories was logging in to UO for the first time and saying, "What the heck is this crap?  Why is it so laggy?  Why is that guy snooping my backpack?  What the heck just killed me?  I hate this game!"  Not knowing that 16 years later I would still be playing it lol

Mine was WWII online,now called battle ground Europe. You could literally wait hours before actually seeing anyone or get into action. We were set up on the Hill facing the main road into Charleville, my friend I had towed out to this hill with an 88 gun. I had a panzer III tank a little further down the hill in tree cover. The time Day and night on that game takes place and engine sounds all of a sudden started off in the distance, just as dawn was breaking. Its 3am in our time so we were like sleepy and about to call in the night. The engine sounds kept getting louder and more sounds of multiple tanks ensued. Then my friend spots 3 French Char-B1 tanks, which are bad ass compared to my Panzer III and 2 S-35 Soumas. I take out one S35 and he starts lighting them up hard. The 88 makes short work of tanks, he kills 3 Chars and like 2 other vehicles along with a few infantry. That game was so much fun back in the day!

My best times were seeing a high lvl (probably lvl 25) in EQ and going WOW he has awesome gear!! He looks cool. Why? because his armor wasn't brown and gray and had color in it.

Another time in EQOA, I was lvl 8 human cleric, running around with a warrior and ranger both lvl 18 and we went into the prisons. The prisons was a nice xp spot for lvls 12-18. All the mobs conned deep and I was nervous. I saw groups pulling and fighting and healing and all these spells glowing and blowing up the night. It was truly like fireworks. I died a lot, due to aggro.

I remember my first raid. In EQOA I remember sitting on the banks of a huge pit and the raid group was fighting a dragon named "Sithylis" or something like that. I didn't participate in the raid, but since there were no instances you could just sit in a safe spot and watching all those spells flying and watch a capped out Warrior lose most of his health in one shot. I had never seen anything so powerful. It was cool and making friends. I was also the highest lvl Halfling warrior on DH sever at one point named:

Teemwillow

After EQ, I was in EQ2 BETA and that game was graphic intensive at the time. Some complained that even with 4 gigs of RAM and a nice Graphics card. their game lagged too. I had a low end gpu, even for 2004, and like 1-2 gigs of ram. Then later that year WoW had come out. I got in BETA and never looked back. WoW and it's solo friendly setup made it the game for me.

I solo grinded my first 60 Dwarf Hunter (I was in BETA and I dinged 60 May 2005, so like 6 months) and I never raided or did one dungeon with him and I grinded mobs and did maybe 50 quests the entire time. I PvP'd mostly and Hunters were terrible. I was ganked all the time, but that made me better. I was like the only BM hunter on my server and I melee'd. Why? because rangers in EQ could melee, so I thought these hunters could too. I got good at it.

My favourite MMO moment in time was the Shadow Odyssey expansion for Everquest 2.  Really was my favourite gaming period.  The raids were fantastic, the dungeons were challenging and fun, and the community was brilliant.  Beating Varsoon was a real achievement that only a few players on every server could achieve, and dungeons still offered good rewards for raiders rather than a linear progression from dungeons to raids like they implemented in future  (which made group content redundant since it was super easy to get normal mode raid loot).  The contested avatars also made for great competition between guilds.

 

Out of all the games I have played, my friends from EQ2 have stayed with me the most thanks to that great expansion and experience, and still keep in contact with many of them IRL even though we have moved on from the game.

I was there in both. lost the first, won the second.

 

quite honestly it's the reason i quit eve. When TEST warped back in knowing fully well they'll all die the lag was so severe we could not even give them a proper mercy killing.

 

it was a disgusting butchering in slow motion. I probably would've felt better if I had died and not seen the end of that fight.

 

but for me...probably this.

Some of my favorite memories:

- When I finally finished putting the last of a huge number of resources into my planned house and it poofed into existence, looking rather convincingly like a scarab beetle. (in A Tale In the Desert)  My rainbow loops glider turned out pretty awesome too.  And I didn't make it, but I almost peed laughing when I stumbled across another player's sculpture of sheep riding a rollercoaster.

- The first time _I_ was the big player who got begged to bull through a low-level dungeon to help a newbie complete their quest, rather than it being me doing the begging.

- When I finally earned a mount, in both WoW and Dofus.  And when I finally managed to buy a flying mount in Perfect World (not counting the winged elves which start with the equivalent of a flying mount).

- Two years after I had last played Dofus, my best friend confessed to me that he was still really proud I had liked his name idea best for the guild I created and led in that game.  (Dungeons and Dragoturkeys)

 Having a community that knows each other and doesn't have the "Me, Myself and I" mentality.  NexusTK , DarkAges and Shattered Galaxy all had great communities, not sure about today since I haven't played any of the 3 for the past 7 years.  And it's funny how they were all Nexon games ( Now Kru ).         What this world needs badly right now are more MMORTS , we got enough MMORPG junk that people keep jumping from one to another.     Playing Red Alert 95 on HEAT was sooooo bad ass back in the day and is still one of my best moments in my 23 years of PC gaming.      We are now in the era where realistic graphics on a MMORPG is more important then game play and content.  So sad.   :'(

Great thread.  So many moments stand out, but most are about the laughs.

1) In the latter days of SWG, they had devices that would show you where people flagged for PvP were on the various planets so that you could go to that general area and try to track them down while they were flipping zone control.  I was doing some recon work on my Spy and found a group that was running around an area trying to flip a zone, but they had put down a house nearby so that if anyone showed up they could hide and not have to fight.  I mentioned it in guildchat, and one of our members started putting together a group.  They used a "port to group member" item in the guild hall to come in where I was standing just behind a hill from the other group.  I ran up in stealth and threw a flashbang grenade which put everyone in combat and locked them out of the house.  The rest of my group wiped the other out before they had any idea what was going on.  The whole thing was over in a minute, but we laughed about it for weeks.

2) I was hanging out with some RPers and was asked to provide security for a wedding.  My roommate at the time comes home and asks what I'm doing.  "I'm running security for an interspecies lesbian wedding."  I got a blank stare for a few seconds and then he said, "I'm pretty sure that sentence has never been uttered before in the history of the English language."

3) My guild used to screw with new recruits.  We had an old guy named Finn who rarely spoke, and when he did it rarely made sense.  He was a good player though so we just let it ride.  One night Finn, my friend Ace and I were grouped with a new kid.  The conversation went something like this:

Finn: Need smoke

Me: Ok let's take a quick break until he gets back

New Guy: How old is that guy?  I can't understand most of what he says

Me: He's 9

New Guy: He's 9?!!  And he smokes???

Ace: He's had a rough life.  We don't judge.

Me: At least he's stopped drinking all the time

New Guy: OMG!!!

Using words to talk of words is like using a pencil to draw a picture of itself, on itself.

    Probably the first time I ran Shadowfang Keep in WoW. I was only like 11 or 12 and still didn't know a thing about the game. And it was within the first month or so of release, so everyone was still pretty much a noob. :) So me and some dwarf guy in my group were running our way over there, allll the way from Ironforge. He was way into RPing so it was a pretty interesting walk. About half way there we got to talking about SFK, and, taking advantage of my noobishness, the dwar fella I was with started telling these horror stories about the place. He told me the lore behind it and went on and on about how countless hundreds of groups were killed by the final boss. Or how if you were killed by the ghost enemies there, they would "steal your characters soul" and you'd have to start over. Being 11 years old I completely believed him, and  was crazy excited and terrified to get there. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. :)

    Another good one was wiping my way through Gnomeregan back when it was still incredibly hard, and took almost 3 hours to complete. We called in my level 60 friend and still ended up wiping a few more times.. good fun! Was totally worth it in the end getting the Axe he drops though.

Kind of depressing posting this knowing the state of the game now..... 

Thanks OP.

Yes I have a dream… And its not some MLK dream for equality. …I wanna own a decommissioned lighthouse …And I wanna live at the top… And nobody knows I live there. …And theres a button that I can press, and launch that lighthouse into space.

This may be a little maudlin, but my most memorable time in an MMO was completion of the League of Monster Slayers quest line in The Secret World.   I felt a tear well up. 

Hedonismbot: Your latest performance was as delectable as dipping my bottom over and over into a bath of the silkiest oils and creams.

Finn: Need smoke

Me: Ok let's take a quick break until he gets back

New Guy: How old is that guy?  I can't understand most of what he says

Me: He's 9

New Guy: He's 9?!!  And he smokes???

Ace: He's had a rough life.  We don't judge.

Me: At least he's stopped drinking all the time

New Guy: OMG!!!

Finn: Good smoke.  Let's go.

GREAT story!
