There was a report that Runes of Magic had 4 million active accounts.  Don't know how valid that is now though.  Although I'd still bet on it being up there, as far as being amongst the most popular.

Runescape

Maple Story

Tibia

Perfect world

D&D Online

 

Runes of magic is one of the best rated FTP MMO's but its player base is still small as its a newer game.

1.) D&D Online

2.) LOTR Online

3.) Mahbinogi

4.) Vindictus

5.) Uncharted Waters Online 

I used the facebook fan pages as a benchmark I did not include browser games like runescape

Slap DOFUS in that last spot.

Allods and Dungeon Fighter Online are pretty chill with a decent playerbase.

I say we strike all users from the site for not being MMOs.

Runes of Magic should fit in there somewhere as its got a fairly healthy population still for a F2P game. I still think LOTRO and DDO beat them out as far as content quality & population goes.

What about Second Life is that considered. I read it has a huge economy people making money in real life off it too.

The player base is only in the hundreds of thousands. Which, is relatively small for F2P games. 

People make real money off it, but don't expect to make anything if you don't have a considerable real life investment equal to that of starting a real life business. (Tens of Thousands of Dollars USD)

 Dofus is not free to play.  It's more of an unlimited trial with VERY limited content. If you want to get past level 10 (you can level to 200), you are practically forced to pay the monthly fee. 

 

Runescape

Maple Story

Lord of the Rings Online

DDO

Runes of Magic

 

...is my guess in no particular order.

I dont' know.  The population on xfire for ddo, atlantica online, and silkroad is quite high.

Problem is there is no actual way of knowing.

 

Some games will say "We have millions of active accounts" of course you do it is F2P so any account made is basically always active.

 

XFire (which does not constitute any sort of factual information as far as the exact order of population goes) shows the following for MMOs so pick out the F2P:

 

  • WoW
  • Aion
  • LotRO
  • Eve
  • Silkroad Online
  • Guild Wars
  • CABAL Online
  • Runes of MAgic
  • Atlantica Online
  • Maple Story
  • Need for Speed World
  • Metin 2
  • Mabinogi
  • AoC
  • Battle of the Immortals
  • Perfect World
  • DDO
  • Fiesta
  • Warhammer
  • Shaiya
  • Air Rivals
  • RuneScape
So since I've never heard of some of those games and don't care to take the time to research them it looks like it might go something like this (since you also specified the RPG part and not just MMOs):
 
LotRO
GW
Runes of Magic
Atlantica Online
Maple Story
DDO
Runescape
War
 
Some selection of those is probably the top 5 since there are tons of people who don't use XFire. In this case XFire helps since you are looking for populated (and I read that as lots of people in the gameworld when you log in not accounts created) and this goes by hours played by people who use xfire.

I'm pretty sure Allods has almost no-one playing it; unless the American servers are literally full to the brim. But on the EU servers at least I can't imagine there being more than 3000 active players/

RIFT was a *crushing* disappointment; a shallow, loveless, generic MMO the likes of which hasn't been seen in a P2P format since, well, forever.

Eagerly awaiting: World of Darkness, ArcheAge.

GW isn't F2P, its buy to play; there is a huge difference.  Also, I don't think the xFire stats would be representative of the GW player-base at all.  xFire used to have severe issues with the DirectX interpolation with GW a while back so a lot of GW players I knew never adopted xFire.
